What The Knife


Shirt: TJ Maxx   trousers: H&M   shoes: gifted   bag: thrifted

I’m pretty sure that I married an axe murderer (have you seen that movie, because I grew up on that amazing piece of glory, If you haven’t seen it speedily repent and go watch its cheesiness) okay no but really. I’m genuinely concerned. I keep finding weapons all over the house. Last night I was making the bed (what do you really think I’m one of those people that makes the bed right when I get out of it? That stuff is for chumps) and guess what I found underneath the decorative pillows, a giant knife. Then I was grabbing a check from Matt’s sock drawer, another great and spacious knife, and guess what I happened upon when I went to set the alarm clock….another friggin’ knife. Surprise. So I became genuinely concerned, I mean if there are plans to have a knife throwing contest or if there are plans to replace every item in this house with a knife I should know right?? I mean right?! So I approached the Sir Matt and I was like, “What’s up with the millions of knives randomly stowed around the house, because if you’re going to kill me in my sleep I want to know about it.” and Matt, just nonchalantly looked up from his lap top and said, “Sarah, if someone comes into this house I want to know that I have at least four back up knives aside from the one I sleep with under my pillow.” ----cricket cricket---“You don’t sleep with a knife under your pillow. I would know, I make the bed.” “Oh yeah, I put it there every night before I go to sleep.” ----cricket cricket----. “Ummmm kay I’m going to bed. Sleep tight, don’t let the burglars bite.”  Guys, is this a normal man thing? Or should I be concerned that I’m going to wake up less two fingers and a baby toe?

  2. I don't know that it's a normal man thing...I'd be nervous that I'd cut myself in the night? Maybe I'm just a restless sleeper. Great movie though! So trust-ing, so giv-ing, so lov-ed.

  3. Love the floral shirt!

    And, um, I guess I'd just be concerned of the knife in the bed because I'd be afraid of rolling on it at some point! I dated a guy who slept with a baseball bat under the bed, so I do think it's kind of a normal guy thing.

  4. I know people who sleep with knives under their pillow! With my luck I would wake up with a severed finger. I'm sure when I'm married I'll be finding guns everywhere. Rhett collects them...and he's the same way about wanting to be protected if something happens. Men...they are so paranoid!

  8. Your outfit is adorable!

    Oh my goodness! That is so cray cray! I would be so afraid to sleep with a knife under my pillow. I mean...seriously I squirm around a lot. I would end up stabbing myself.

  12. Sometimes I feel like this too. Laundry cupboard:throwing knives. Bathroom:razor blades (not the shaving kind). Office:ninja stars of death. My hubby has an assorted collection that must go!

  21. Sheesh, those men. At least he isnt sleeping with a hairdryer. Saw part of the Anderson Cooper show last night where a woman has slept with a hairdryer since she was like 8. And I'm not talking unplugged, no cord. The crazy plugs it in and cuddles with the warm air. Weirdddddo.

  22. Whoa. That is insane. I don't think anyone in Australia would do that! We can't even carry around an envelope opener in the street in case it is used as a weapon!

    ... I hope the knife is at least in a sheath?!?!

    Good luck when you roll over in bed to give your husband a kiss!

  23. That must be a guy thing. My husband has a knife he keeps on the floor by his side of the bed but it's in a sheath too. We both toss and turn too much to have any sort of weapons in the bed.

  24. that's strange but in some way funny, why does he think someone is going to get into the house?
    :P he wants to be your super hero awww

    Good luck finding more knives

  26. Hahahaha that is hilarious! And yet I don't want to tell my boyfriend for fear of giving him ideas - I'm pretty sure he would also think this was a good idea :S

  27. Yes! Keith sleeps with a knife next to the bed, and he keeps another in the car. "Just in case." It creeps me out, but whatever makes him happy... right?

  28. Whenever my husband is away and I'm home alone I sleep by a knife. But I have a pretty active imagination so... I'm not sure what your husband's excuse is.

  29. New follower here! Such a funny story about the knives. I honestly think it's a "protective man" thing. Your toes are probably safe.

  30. I love everything about this outfit: the pants, the top, and the colour of that bag. So cute. The outfit also just flatters your figure nicely. :D

  31. I seem to remember my brother saying he slept with a knife under his pillow in his one dorm room but I think he thought his roommate was going to kill him.
