It would be nice if I didn’t start every Confessional Thursday with some variation of: Confessions are finally back haha. I go through phases with these posts. Sometimes, I have one up every week. Sometimes I don’t. It’s just life.
Whenever I start stressing out about writing for the blog and getting posts scheduled, I remind myself that I actually need to live my life in order to have something to blog about. I could easily spend all weekend blogging, but, if I did I wouldn’t have much to say.
So, Confessional Thursday is still on, it just won’t happen some weeks.
But, since we’re on today… let’s confess!
+ This is a long one, but it needs to be included. A couple of weeks ago I started following another blogger on Instagram after seeing Katie post a picture of her. While doing a shoot with me, Katie happens to mention that this blogger also lives in my neighborhood. But, the real shocker was when we realized she also works at the same firm I do. What are the freaking odds right? Another beauty blogger, in Dallas, lives in my neighborhood AND we work at the same company? It was too much to handle. Of course I find her on our work IM and literally type “we need to be bffs”. Mind you she’s at work randomly getting an IM from an unknown Claudia person asking her to bffs. I’m not weird at all…Thankfully she didn’t immediately report me to HR and get a restraining order. She’s cool like that.
To add to the insane coinkydinks, we also live on the same block and she has the word blush in her blog name too. See why I told her we needed to be bff’s? I’m two seconds away from gifting her one of those half heart bff necklaces from Limited Too circa 1998. Find her blog here and follow her on Instagram here. She’s lovely and hilarious… and we need to convince her to start doing confessions.
+ I spilled quite a bit of pasta on the floor, picked it up and still ate it. That’s acceptable right?
+ The pasta from above? We were out of clean bowls (and I didn’t want to bother washing one) so I ate it out of a Christmas mug with a reindeer on it.
+ Continuing on with the lack of clean dinnerware – we bought pizzas from the grocery store and ate them off the cardboard boxes they came in (after baking them in the oven). Note the use of plurals in this pizza confession.
+ My old hair dryer finally bit the dust a couple of weeks ago. And by bit the dust, I mean it started smoking. I still managed to use it in a low setting for a few days. However, when I finally went for a replacement, I ended up with hair dryer for myself & a hair dryer for Tuna #savingsfail. In my defense, her’s was less than $20 and it saves on trips to the groomers if we bathe her at home.
+ While doing laundry, I noticed a lid on a little compartment at the bottom of the washing machine. After opening, I realized it was the filter for the washing machine with clear instructions to drain once a month. We’ve had this washing machine for 3 years now…. I’m not even going to describe what came out when I finally drained it.
+ I’ve been listening to several crime related podcasts the last month or so. True Crime Garage, Vanished, Serial, etc. Unfortunately this has led me to believe that every van I walk next to & every noise in the house is a serial killer waiting to dismember my body. I almost had a heart attack after walking out of the bathroom and seeing my husband in our bedroom. And you know.. he lives here!
+ I drank 3 glasses of sangria while writing this post.
