Sunday Social

It's Sunday and I'm linking up with the girls for their weekly Sunday Social.
Make sure to link up and share your answers as well!

1. What is the first website you log on to each day?

The first website I log onto daily is definitely Facebook.
I am obsessed. I love to see people's pictures and see what everyone is up to. My friends are all at such different stages of life and I really do like to see it all (wild nights out, photos of their travels, and photos of their kids).

2. Give us some funny websites you visit that we need to know about.

Lost Angeles - He writes about each Bachelor/Bachelorette after it airs and is hilarious. Bookmark it now and check it out when the next season of Bachelor comes on. (Or, look back at old recaps from this season).

3. Pinterest or Facebook? Why?

I love both but for totally different reasons. Facebook is where I stay connected with friends and family.  Pinterest is where I find and share good teaching activities, recipes, and those funny e-cards! 

4. Twitter or Instagram? Why?

I do Twitter, but mainly to read what other people write.  I don't hardly tweet anything! Everyone tells me I need to start Instagram but I honestly don't really understand it. Anyone want to help?

5. Favorite youtube it!

This is an oldie but a goodie!

6. Biggest online pet peeve?

Hmmm. I get really annoyed when people do the following things on Facebook. 

1. They gush, gush, gush about how wonderful their lives are. You know what? No ones lives are always that perfect.  

2. They show pictures of their husbands with no shirts on, in bed, etc. It would be fine if your hubby was hot or even semi-good looking.  But the repeat offenders usually are not very toned and pretty hairy. No one except you wants to see that. Put a damn shirt on before you take pictures.

3. They gush about how wonderful being a mommy is - all.the.time.  Yes, I agree. I love being a mommy,  but you know what? Sometimes it is so stinking hard and really sucks. Be honest.  I can't imagine your kid is an angel 24/7 and only poops rainbows and hearts. Seriously doubt it.

This post just made me laugh so hard! I totally understand the facebook thing.

I just started with Instagram too. It's basically Twitter but in pictures. You post pictures...follow people...comment on their pictures. The best part of Instagram is that you can edit your pictures so it makes everyone look like a photographer! It's a lot of fun!

Haha! Loved this! You are right about. FB! And I don't understand instant am, yet. I've tried, and I guess I need to put more effort into it.

Instagram is way faster and more interesting than twitter. I never tweet anymore, you can choose to share your ig pics with twitter and I do that sometimes. Please!!!!! get on IG because when those babies get here I want to see lots of pics!!! You will love it so much more than twitter, I swear!!

I'm not a mom, so you can imagine how annoying those mommy comments become then... and yes, I can't imagine it being an awesome job all the time. It's interesting how the online world lets people paint a picture of their lives as being perfect all the time, even when it's not. I doubt we'd want to hear about all the bad stuff all the time, but it does make you second guess your life if other people are so happy all the time, right?

That video cracked me up! Reminds me of this one:

I don't use IG the right way - I use it as an editing tool and put the pics on FB... guess it's more of a social network.

Your FB things are so funny!!! To add to what Brooke said, Steve told me a quote once, "Don't compare your insides to other people's outsides..." as in, we know exactly what's going on with us, but we only know about the surface of others... and boy does that apply to FB!
