Confessionals / vol 1.

I've never done one of these before, but they're seriously some of my favorite things to read from others so I'm joining in today because...

#1. I am the biggest internet creep. I doubt anyone noticed but I shut down my blog for a few days because I was interviewing with a new family and when you google my name this is the first thing that shows up. And with the love stories I've been writing lately, that was not the first thing I wanted someone to read about me, haha. And if anyone is like me...they will google. All I had to go on was her first name, last initial and her job title and I figured out everything I needed to know. Does anyone else do that? Maybe it's because I used to process mortgage loans which was basically like being a detective (kidding, but not really) so I know how to find things out about people, but I also think it's just how the world works nowadays. (And if you are googling me right now...hi.....)


#2. Teds birthday was yesterday and I did not cry. I kind of feel bad about it because I 100% expected to cry like all day, but nothing. Not that I wasn't sad, because I was. I just think I've cried enough lately so I'm tapped out, haha. And I didn't even take that many pictures. (^ except like 40 of him with a pine cone lol.) AND I can't believe I didn't do a whole post about him for it. So I might put one together, about a week late..

#3. I totally brought an iPad to the gym the other day, set it up on the treadmill and watched Teen Mom. Usually no one else is there during the day, but of course, like five other people showed up this day, but I didn't even care. ZERO shame. And why should I? The important thing here is that I walked for the entire show which is 60 MINUTES. Plus, my motto on life is becoming - "never get embarrassed in front of people you will never see again." So, definitely going to keep up with the Kardashians later this afternoon...

#4. Speaking of the Kardashians, I tried to wear high-waisted jeans and a turtleneck tucked in last weekend a la Kourtney, and I just looked like the dorkiest 90's Mom ever. But probably going to try it again. She might be the reason I'm even going to the gym so much in the first place, have you seen her lately???!

#5. I swore off Trader Joes when we moved here, and where did I find myself on Tuesday afternoon? ...Trader Joes. Trader Joes is like my "treat." I've never gone in there to actually grocery shop, I buy all of our normal everyday food from Costco and Walmart/Harris Teeter, the normal stores. But for a while I was stopping into Trader Joes at least once a week, (...usually more) just to buy fun things. I was wasting like $25 a week on chocolate lava cakes, fancy frozen egg rolls and sweet potato chips. So I've been really good and haven't set foot in one since probably the beginning of December, but I needed mozzarella the other day, and I saw Trader Joes and.....now I have pink himalayan salt...

#6. I noticed some mold on our shower curtain the other week and thought, "thats gross" but continued on with my life. I mean, it's like brand new, we've been here for what, 7 weeks? I thought maybe it would just go away. I showed it to John the other night thinking he'd also be like, "it's fine" but no, he was like, "get a new one." So, I'm disgusting.

#7. I had to stop following someone on snapchat because she took her family to the circus. Sue me, but I can't. I only followed her because she had kind of an entertaining life, I don't really care and watching her purse her lips ten minutes a day probably isn't the best use of my time anyways. (Hint: she's a real housewife.)

#8. I needed my hair done like, three weeks ago but I'm trying to hold out even longer. Since I have naturally lighter roots I feel like it's not ever that bad, but if anyone asks I'm just going to say that I'm working on a natural ombre...

#9. So there's like a Starbucks station in the "great room" (that's what they call it, not me) here and we always make fun of everyone we live around because they're always going there in the mornings to get coffee, like make coffee at home you weirdos! But the other day...I got curious and I went in, and got hot chocolate. And it was so good. It's not like anything fancy, just a machine that makes coffee, hot chocolate or tea. But I'm totally planning on doing it again....sue me.

#10. John scratched his truck on something this week, and he was pretty bummed about it but I kept trying to tell him that mistakes happen. Really, it's no big deal at all. But I have to admit that part of me was just thinking, "thank god!" because now if I ever hit something it won't seem so bad, haha.

I'm sure I could think of more, but I'll stop there before I TMI. And sorry for the delay on part 3 of our love story (saying sorry feels so stupid lol, like I assume anyone cares besides me.) It's a lot to write and I made the mistake of asking John how he remembers things and some parts are different than how I remember, so I'm getting confused, and yeah. It's just a lot. And it's one of those things I have to feel in the mood to write you know? But it'll probably go up this weekend. Because I blog on weekends. Because I'm me.

  1. I noticed you were gone (In the least creepy way possible ha)! I am so fricken nosey, I think that's why I love reading blogs so much. I debate whether or not to start up my own blog, but I'm not sure that even the best of writing, can make my plain jane life seem that exciting lol. Have a good weekend!

    1. Hahaha thanks girl! You totally should just try it! I gave myself a year to see if I liked it and I swear best thing I've ever done. And then I can hear all about your life!!!

  2. I never thought about Googling...might go Google myself to see if my blog pops up. Ha! Trader Joe's has the best snacks. Michael actually has tons of self control and doesn't just let me get everything I want (well, I mean he doesn't force me not to, but I'll be like, "Should we get these?!" and he'll be like, "no" and then I'm too ashamed haha) so when we go to Trader Joe's I have to be good and we get just boring stuff. I just unfollowed a bunch of people on Instagram because I was like...why am I wasting my time?

  3. One time travis backed his truck into a car pulling out of our driveway and I was secretly happy because he never does anything wrong and I crashed his truck into a toll booth once.

    1. LOL yes exactly! I don't know how many times I've been like "oops almost hit that" so now if I do someday I'll just bring this up lol

  4. I'm a severe internet creeper! That's why I usually keep my Facebook deactivated because otherwise it gets out of hand. Haha. I'm like a recovering addict! Holy cow, kortney looks amazing! Jacob won't let me watch that show though so I will have lots of catching up to do once I'm on maternity leave! Haha. Kortney and Khloe are my favs! Also, you are not disgusting--we have mold at the bottom of our shower curtain and it's been there for roughly 3 months but I was like "I'm not buying a new one when we are moving soon" baha so...we've continued to use it...nbd haha

    1. Lol I mean, a little mold won't kill anybody right? Oh well, already got a new one. I kind of hate the kardashians but I can't stop watching it. I can't believe they got as popular as they did, it's kind of amazing. And that's probably why I have to delete my instgram all the time too because I get bored and start going through other people's friends list and get way too deep lol.

  5. I tried to send a comment earlier but it didn't seem to work so here goes again!

    I can't remember how I found your blog but thought it was time to introduce myself! I, too am a fan of Teen Mom but had to stop watching it as I started having weird pregnancy dreams (even though I have no children). My husband advised I stop watching the show (much to his delight as he thinks it's trash anyways LOL) and the dreams stopped. So, beware!

    Anyways, love your posts! You actually inspired me to recently start my own blog which I have been enjoying writing...so thank-you from this girl in Ontario, Canada!

    1. Oh my gosh, you're the sweetest!!! I'm clicking over to your blog ASAP! I've been so bored of blogs lately I need some new reads I just never quite know where to look. Ok though Teen Mom is so stupid, I have no idea why I watch it but I can't stop! Some people are addicted to the Bachelor, I have to watch Teen Mom, everyone has their guilty pleasure right? I swear I've never had a pregnancy dream, but I think it would freak me out a but if I did lol. And seriously, thank you so much for commenting. I feel like no one reads this so I'm always suprised when I found out anyone cares lol.

  6. First of all - HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO TED!!!! Can't believe he's 1 already! These are always my favorite posts to read, too. I just did the exact same thing with a shower curtain, it had mold on it for a good two months before I replaced it and when I realized the curtains only cost like $5, I felt ridiculous for not doing it sooner, lol. Hope you guys are having a good weekend!

  7. um hello, I noticed you were gone!!! haha HBD Teddy! Well, late bday! I'm so jealous you have a dog, I want one soooooooo baddddd!!! hahah that's really smart to bring and ipad tho!! Like, I will watch my own shows and I don't care who sees!! Cause I'm always the one that flips through every channel and can never find anything good to watch while I run and end up wasting time trying to find something. Anddd I am the same way (sometimes) like how he scratched the truck and you can use that later if you ever bump it or something. It's like "oh it's ok!!" but really, now I have a pass if i ever do something like that :) ps I read this on Friday and then forgot to comment. What is wrong with me?!
