Confessional Friday

It's been a while since I've done a Confessional post. Not because I didn't have stuff to confess, (because let's face it, I always have stuff to confess), but because this little lady took some time off to have a BABY, of all adorable things (seriously, little Miss Caroline is ridiculously cute), so the link up didn't exist. But now it's back, and I'm excited. So here we go.

I confess // that sometimes in life, things just don't work out the way you planned. And that's okay.

I confess // that I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with photo booth strips. I will drag Boyfriend into a booth any chance I get, and even though he acts like I'm asking him to like, cut off his left leg or something (he's so dramatic), sometimes I catch him looking at the photo strips and smiling, so I think he secretly loves it.

I confess // it really doesn't feel like a Friday to me. I have no complaints about having a short work week, but the fact that the days off were smack dab in the middle of the week is throwing me off big time.

I confess // I literally do not know where I would be in life if not for my amazing father and his calming spirit. My whole family is pretty great, don't get me wrong, but there is just something about my dad that makes him exactly what I need when I am feeling stressed. I am so incredibly blessed that God saw fit to give me that man as my father.

I confess // I tried to watch "The Italian Job" before I went to sleep last night and I made it through oh, maybe four minutes before I passed clean out. Whoops.

I confess // I am reading my very first John Grisham novel ever - Sycamore Row. Funny story, actually - I bought that book for Boyfriend for Christmas, and was super excited about it, because I knew he would like it, plus it would mean that I could read it too. Win-win. Then, we get around to present opening time, and what happens? Boyfriend bought the book for me, too. We had a good laugh, and then exchanged one of them for Dan Brown's Inferno. So right now he is reading that, and then we'll switch when we're done. Yay for good books and common interests.

I confess // that I was really bummed when the stupid stupid stupid stupid Packers beat out my Bears for a playoff berth. Like, seriously bummed. The Packers are basically the worst team ever (sorry Shannon...just kidding, no I'm not), so the fact that they got to go to the playoffs while my Bears are sitting over in Chicago being bored is just not cool at all. But like Sarah says, my life span probably just got extended a bit, so there is that.

I confess // that I have hated tea for basically all of my life, but then the last few weeks while I've been sick I've been drinking a blackberry and pomegranate flavored green tea, and that's actually surprisingly tolerable.

I confess // I had actually never heard this song before New Year's Eve, but it's basically been on repeat ever since then because I love it.

  1. What are we going to do with all this extra time on our hands??!?! How do you feel about them resigning cutler??

  2. My husband has the exact same reaction to photo booths. I've gotten him in two and that's all I think I'll get in our entire lives. :P

  3. Tea-I hate tea. Even if I'm sick I just cant stand it. I might have to join in on this confession fun one week.

  4. Oh hey...just me back tracking on your blog because I've been a horrible blog reader and I am so out of the loop. I will get better about this!!!

    I love photo booths too!!! They're my favorite. I have a little bulletin board above my desk at home with a bunch of photo booth pictures.


I'd love to know what you think! Leave me a comment - it will make my day!
