Nerdiness in a Nutshell

So.....
I am going to apologize ahead of time
for those of you that have these on the back of their cars. I hate pulling up behind a car that has the Family sticker on the back of their car. For some reason it makes me a bit weirded out that people like to display for the world, how many children they have and how many animals are in the fam. Nerdy!!!! And you don't just see the family always represented by little people stickers, sometimes its flip flops, flowers, turtles, or my best, skulls. I love pointing them out to Austin and my family and telling them how much I dislike them. I was driving on bangeter the other day behind a huge freakin van with stickers of 2 parents and 15 children, and of course the 3 dogs and 2 cats.
People, really?
So for Christmas my brother and sister in law thought it would be a great gift to get me my very own family sticker. yay!!!! They kept telling me christmas morning how awesome my gift was and how much I have always wanted it for my car. For the life of me I couldn't think of something that I wanted for my car. So they had me go outside and check my car out to see if I saw something different on it, as soon as I turned the corner to the back I yelled "NO! I hate those!" They all started to laugh because they thought I would at least try to be nice about it. ( I am not one to hurt feelings, I would usually just go along with something even if I am not feelin it, just so I won't hurt feelings) but seriously something had to be said, I didn't know if they really thought that I liked those nerdy stickers. I had to make sure they knew that was not staying on my car.
But the funny part is.......it is still there, I haven't taken it off and as I drive my car around I am so embarrassed to have people pull up behind me and see that I have one of the family stickers, with my dead cat and all( see the halo) hahaha
Thanks Josh and Chelsea for a great Laugh!!!!!!

Oh, I hear you! I HATE them, as well, and make fun of them every time we drive by. ("Oh look, there's that family of six, with the 2 boys and 4 girls") yeah...
But I will be silent...JUST IN CASE it happens to be your car we drive by one of these days. :)
Funny story.

ya know whats so funny?! I HATE those stupid stickers too, but I did buy a VERY cute one at Disneyland (that I still have not put on) that is the characters from "The Nightmare Before Christmas" which is the girls FAVORITE movie! SO anyway, it is pretty cute! But pretty soon I will be one of those annoying people!! But if you pull up behind a car with Jack and Sally, youll know its me!

Chels that's hilarious I love that they put it right on your car...and I must be a total cheese ball but I don't care I totally think they are cute, maybe just because I'm the nosiest most curious person in the world and somehow seeing those gives me insight into people's lives that I otherwise would not have had. ha ha ha but seriously come on....that freaking diaper on Brody and the halo.......freaking cute LEAVE IT. ha ha ha by dang us women need some more support and appreciation for all these little stinkers we bring into the worldand take care of. (although there have got to be some alternative ways of getting that) haha ha, I'm really sorry I can't stop laughing.

I'm glad you posted this because otherwise I might have seen you driving around town and thought less of you. ;)
I hate the family stickers too, but I'm not a very huge fan of "car tats" in general. I've yet to see one I really love.
