Confessions Friday!

Oooooh, it's FRIDAYYYYYYY! Can you feel the excitement? I dunno about you all but this has felt like the. longest. week. EVER!
And, since it's a special Friday, and I'm a dork...

I am SO ready for the weekend. MG and I have our bedroom set being delivered on Saturday along with a surprise 30th birthday party for a friend of ours that night (coincidentally at the same place I threw MG's 30th at). I'm looking forward to new things, hanging with friends, and overall relaxation!

But, there are some things that I must confess, so I'm linking up with Leslie @ A Blonde Ambition For Confessional Friday:

I confess that....

...even though I have been really good about cleaning out my closets and getting rid of clothes, that I bought three things in the last two days that I found on Pinterest:

The dresses, total, were $100 and I need them for a few weddings coming up. I figured it wasn't SO bad because 1) I would have easily spent at least $100 on ONE dress, so getting two for that price is a good deal and 2) MG said he liked them without any mention of our dwindling closet space (win!). And the ring was $9 and super cute.

....I wish a friend of mine who I've lost touch with, would reach out and make the effort to make amends. 

.... I'm supremely intrigued by these 50 Shades of Grey books. I've heard a lot of hype about them over the last few months, and moreso in the last few days on the blogs, so I think I'm gonna hop on the bandwagon.

....doing Rosetta Stone makes me realize just how horrible my Spanish skills were/are. I can understand a decent amount, but RS slaps me in the face every time I do it, with the realization that my Spanish needs a LOT of help. And I probably sound like an imbecile when I attempt to speak it to native speakers. Oh well!

....when MG's work spring work trips on him, I don't think I've ever once been excited about them. It's cool for him to get to go galavanting around the country (or, in his last job, to different countries), but.....what about ME???? I always tell him, at least I care and would miss him, rather than being "yeah whatever." I think I like these trips less, too, cuz they pop up out of nowhere  and he has to go within a few days, so I can't even plan for them, like the one he told me about last night that he might have to leave Saturday night for. Does that make sense? (Tell me it does, so I don't feel like a freak! hehe)

....I haven't worked out at all this week. Dealing with the stress of my roommate and work, selling things around my apartment, and doc appt's have all kept me from working out. I need to get back on the workout wagon cuz it's almost bikini time!

....I'm tired of always giving and giving and giving and having others just take take take. In reality, I do it to myself. I don't set boundaries, or when I do, I go back on them and have the tendency of being TOO nice, or doing TOO much for someone else who does very little for me. I need to stop that because it only ends up leaving me feeling used and hurt.

....I have a countdown on my white board in my office of how many days of school there are left (27, in case you were wondering). I can't wait until that number is in the single digits!

I'm off to make it through my work day and get ready for the weekend. Let's keep our fingers crossed that my roommate doesn't pull anymore jerky moves while I'm at MG's this weekend!

Happy Friday!


  1. And I'm gonnna be borrowing those dresses, so get ready!

    C is the same way with work trips, granted his are usually only a day or two. But it will be Monday and he'll say "you're on your own for dinner tommorrow!" WHAT THE WHAT!

    yay school almost being over! xoxo

  2. I really love that ring! I'm also curious but highly skeptical about the 50 Shades of Grey books. Everyone seems to love them but they don't seem like my style. I said that about the Hunger Games too though and LOVED them when I finally read them.

  3. YAY for the new Lulus dresses!!!:) Only 27 days until summer vacation? I'm SO jealous!

  4. let me know what you think of the 50 shades of Grey. i read the free sample from amazon and the author's writing annoyed me. don't know if i can get pass that.

    and on the friend note -- if she is REALLY a good friend she'll reach out -- if not. F that B. <-- wrong? maybe. but i'm here for you. always.

  5. I'm stopping by from Leslie's blog and I squealed when I saw your May the 4th Be With you! YES!!! And also with you!


  6. That navy dress is absolutely gorgeous.

  7. Those dresses are totally worth it! I like the ring too. I would be aggravated about those trips too. I HATE when will randomly has to go on training, so I get it!


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
