Gum - A Love/Hate Thing

Just a little windy.
The fun things about this outfit:
1. Denim Vest - Thrifted
2. Pants - Thrifted & Skinnied
3. T-shirt - Target
4. Shoes - Thrifted ($4)
5. Earings - Yard Sale
6. Purse - Yard Sale (Betsey Johnson $5)

That's right! I picked up a Betsey Johnson purse for $5 at a yard sale!
Want to hear all about it? To bad. The story is basically what I already said,
 and I need to vent about gum!

Let's be honest, I'm not the only one out there who chews gum... Am I?

I'm not, right? Right?

Today as I went through half a pack at work. That sounds like I'm a chain smoker 
or something, but I assure you I'm only involved in chewy jaw involved insanity, 
not smelly ones. (No offense to you out there who smoke, it's just not my thing.)

Like I was saying I chewed half a pack of gum at work. By the end of my day I had one 
of the worst head aches, my jaw hurt, and my mouth was fresh dry. It was at this point I
realized I have what one might call a Love-Hate relationship with my dear friend GUM. 

I have to ask myself, "Why, in the heckaroo, did I take another piece."

I seriously will put a new piece in my mouth to replace the old one before 
it's even out of flavor sometimes. (If you didn't see the big deal earlier, 
I bet now you understand why I'm calling it insanity.)

I love the fresh flavor. It is something to do instead of eat all day. (I'm one of those 
munchy people who other, normal people look at and say, "why are they still eating?" 
I like food people!) I actually tangibly like the act of unwrapping gum. 
It's getting weird - isn't it? When my mouth feels unfresh (real word?), 
the Orbit commercials literally go on rerun in my head. "Clean it up." she said. 

But do those pro's outweigh the cons? 
That head ache was a doozy and it didn't go away for hours. 

I have to cut back! Do they have a patch for that?

Zephaniah 3:17
The Lord your God is in your midst, 
a mighty one who will save; 
he will rejoice over you with gladness; 
he will quiet you by his love; 
he will exult over you with loud singing.


  1. Lol, this post was interesting! My track coach was addicted to chewing gum, he had some all the time!!
    I love this outfit, I'm looking to buy one of those vests for my honeymoon, I need to find one at $5 like you!!


    1. The vest isn't cropped at the bottom. It's just super small. If the sleeves were still attached I'm sure it wouldn't fit me. Haha

  2. Super cute outfit!! I've been so into denim vests lately.. love the pics too!


  3. Genius finds! Seriously loving the vest- I've been looking for one of those at thrift stores endlessly to no avail. Glad you found one!


  4. Haha, I've never been much of a gum person, but I can definitely relate to the munching thing. I can't walk through my kitchen without grabbing a handful of cashews or crackers. And I'm always craving peanut butter right before I go to bed. A terrible weakness.

    I LOVE yard sales - some of my favorite belongings are amazing yard sale finds. I'm addicted.
