Ode to Rock out With Your Emoji Out

I've often mentioned how my favorite thing about the blogging community is meeting new people. Not in like, a creepy way of course, but the kind of way where you find awesome girlfriends that become life long friends. This happened to me about a year and a half ago when I met Kailey and Brianna.

Since we met in real life in April of 2014, we've spent time not only hanging out in the real world, and in blog world, but also in this other world called Rock Out With Your Emoji Out (herein after referred to as, ROWYEO). It's our group text convo and literally, that's what we named it. Ever since we met in real life we text message all day erry day. I tried explaining that to Nate one night and he couldn't understand it. He goes, "Why do you text about stuff all day like that? That's exhausting.", I tell ya.

So, I've decided to give you a glimpse into the world of ROWYEO and share some screen shots of actual conversations that Kailey and Brianna and I have on a daily basis. Cause sometimes you just can't make this stuff up.


I think sometimes (read: all the time) I think I'm funnier than other people think I am. Which is fine...
Thanks, guys.

Sometimes, we have real heart-to-hearts about pets. Pets are people too.

Sometimes we drink together on weeknights, cause why not?

We sometimes give each other valuable career advice,

Other times, it's guidance on how to effectively manage our time.

This one began with, "You guys wanna hear how lazy I am?"

However I would say the majority of our text messages are about what we should eat for various meals throughout the day, and making healthy choices:
Common theme: wine and mac and cheese. I'm a simple girl, really. 

Sometimes we swap life stories, cause that's what relationship building is all about, right?
Life stories, and then also some life hacks. Some tips and tricks, if you will:

I went ham on all these screen shots didn't I (see what I did there)? Don't ask me why I have all of these...I don't have a good answer other than maybe one day I thought I'd put them into a book or something and it'd make for a cute Christmas present...but then I realized we talk wayyyy too much shiz and 80% of our conversations I wouldn't want published in a hard copy anywhere. Ever.

Love them.

  1. Hahaha yaaaas!!! I love this and I love you guys and I can't wait to see you in seven weeks!!!

  2. This was ACTUALLY the best blog post I've ever read. I wonder if anyone else will agree and think we're funny... also I can't take how often my messages consist of at least one typo.
