Friday Confessional

Dear Readers, I confess.....

  • I really hate returning stuff. In fact, I had stuff since August that was sitting in my house waiting for me to return it. Yesterday I finally sat myself down and told myself that I needed to just suck it up and do it. You'll be proud to know that I got all my returns taken care of yesterday.
  • Well, that is until I went on my shopping spree. Yep, I confess....I guiltlessly went shopping for me and only me. I didn't buy E a single thing and I didn't make myself shop only in the sales rack area. I've come home empty handed one too many times and let's just say I have a very limited wardrobe these was time. I may have bought too much, I may have brought home "options", I may have more returns to do. It's a vicious cycle I tell you!
  • I confess that I do not have the best eating habits. Sometimes I just get so busy that I don't eat, or so tired that I just don't care about eating, and sometimes I just eat all the wrong things because I'm too damn lazy to make myself something worth eating. A Hershey bar and a glass of wine for dinner...sure why not! Yep, that happened.
  • My life is a little messy right now. I blame it all on the 1st birthday bash that was 2 weeks ago (and no, I still don't have pictures). Yes, I'm still recovering. It's amazing how much stuff gets out of whack when it takes a whole weeks focus to finish getting party stuff ready and then almost another whole week to put all that stuff away. Meal planning? Forget it! Home organization binder? Totally going unused. Maybe I'll get myself back together in November. Well, that's holiday season...December? Yeah right. Screw it....January. That will be my month. 
  • I may have gotten in trouble with my husband this week. Why? I painted my son's toe nail (yep just the one, and only one because I got caught). I know this sounds strange, but he loves playing with all my nail polish. I'm sure it's a combination of the sounds of glass clinking against the tile floor and the pretty colors, but I thought he might want to know exactly what it did. So I had him pick a color...he picked hot pink....I corrected and picked black (see, I tried right?). We got one toe painted before daddy walked in and stopped us. Oops. I had a fun time explaining the black toe to his doctor as well the next day at his one year appointment. Oh well.

P.S. Don't forget about the Shutterfly giveaway! Winner will be announced on Monday.


  1. You are not alone! I am terrible at returning things.. I actually think I still have some things from Carter's 1st birthday that needed returning.. And well, I'm pretty sure they're just sitting atop the coat closet int he front hall. Oops.

    And good for you for going out and buying yourself some things! you absolutely deserve it! it's SO hard not to keep buying and buying... and buying for the boys! They're just so dang cute!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. my son also loves playing with my nail polish...he also loves getting his nails painted! But I only do his pointer fingers and his big toes. Whatever....they don't know any better ( my son just turned 2 ), so why not let them. People just chuckle when they see it. And I have used bright pink! They'll grow out of it.

  3. Ahhh...returns!!!! I still have things to return from Claire's party that I never used (plates, napkins, etc) that I bought in August. They have been in a bag in my car for over a month!

  4. I actually get some weird joy out of returning. My husband jokes that buy stuff JUST so I can return it. LOL.

  5. I actually LOVE returning things. But my reasoning is flawed. Even if it is something I bought with my very own money in the first place, somehow, I feel like it's free money. Not even logical.

  6. I HATE to return things. It's such a hassle and a pain. And good for you for splurging on yourself. All too often us moms put ourselves on the back burner. You deserve new things, too!

  7. HA HA HA HA HA... loving that you had to explain the toenail to his doc! :) Also, I am so with you on letting things go by the wayside... sometimes life just gets too busy!

    Hope you have a great weekend! XOXO, Stephanie @ Blonde Highlights

  8. I never spend $$ on myself either and my wardrobe really needs some sprucing up too.

    I started a homemaking binder b/c I was inspired by you, but it's still a work in progress. Someday...

  9. I hate returning stuff too! It comes down to either hating the process of returning, or hating the stuff piled in the corner! Going on a shopping spree for just you sounds really fun - I'm glad you did it :) And it's ok that your life is a little messy, it just happens!

  10. hahaha - I wonder what the doc thought of the black toenail?!

    And good for you for getting your shopping on!


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
