Confessions

Somehow I can't believe it's Thursday. With Monday off, work training Tuesday, and a bunch of meetings on Wednesday....and this morning we already have a 2 hour delay  school cancelled because we got a little snow last night that the snow trucks didn't prepare for, so.....it's been a quick one!

Since it's nearing the end of the week, I wanted to do some confessions!
I confess that....

.....I picked out an outfit yesterday that involved my fleece-lined leggings that was also work appropriate so I could be super cozy while at work
.....I'm that crazy dog mom who puts a coat on Cooper when it's cold out. Not only is he super cute in it, but it actually serves a purpose when it's -2 out with a windchill #nochilidoghere

....I've eaten more than my fair share of veggie straws since we got the Costco sized bag on Monday. Luckily because it's the size of a small toddler (or maybe even a large toddler), you can't tell just how many I've had #toomany

....I'm all about getting a snow day on Friday. If we're gonna be snowed in for the weekend, I want a day off from work. Is that so much to ask for?
....shady car salesman who offer really really bad deals make me laugh--try it on someone else #imnotstupid

....speaking of stupid....stupid people annoy me. That is all.
.....We're all stocked up at the house to make it through a weekend of blizzardy weather. We have our menu planned, and food purchased. Bring it on!

.....I haven't worked out at all so far this week. Monday was busy with errands, Tuesday I was tired/lazy after my work training, and Wednesday I dealt with some weird mix up with my doctor's office, and then did some pre-snow shopping. Somehow I feel skinnier right now than when I work out tho, so I dunno what's going on there...but I'm not complaining

....did anyone watch Real Housewives of Potomac? I grew up right outside of Potomac and it's nothing like what I know of Potomac. I don't really like the ladies so far. Also, how are these women so "rich and fabulous" and they have really old @ss kitchens?

I've lived in apartments with nicer kitchens than these!

.....Olivia from the Bachelor is annoying as all get out. And then those faces she makes... Have you seen the video The Bachelor posted online?

Stop it. Stop it right now. #closeyourmouth

What are you confessing today?

  3. We are supposed to be getting snow sometime on Friday so I probably should head to the store just to get a few items. North Alabama can only take so much snow haha! I tried watching the RH of Potomac but didn't like the women so I'll just stick with the OC and BH!

  4. I love this confession post, I really need to do one myself! You guys are prepared for the weather! It would be super nice to have an extra day to the weekend...fingers crossed for you.

  5. Love these confessions today. I'm super jealous you are getting snow - I miss snow! HA! Love the fact that you can also sneak in leggings to work - I can, but only on Fridays. Have a great day and stay warm! I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get a full snow day off work tomorrow so you can have another 3 day weekend! :)

  6. We are on a 2 hour delay here but school is already on Teacher Work Day status for tomorrow (preplanned!) I just hate winter, girl! I do not do it well at all. Totally missed RHOP. To be honest, I wasn't really interested in it when I saw the previews last month. Stay warm this weekend and keep the doggy bundled up! xo Amanda in NC.

  7. Okay, the "toddler-sized bag" comment cracked me up because YES! It so is! Every time I take Walker with me to Sam's, I giggle at how things are his size…or bigger! ;) And I haven't yet watched RHOP, but it's on my DVR to watch this weekend. I somewhat liked the D.C. version, but don't have high hopes for this one. We shall see. Enjoy your snow day! So jealous!

  8. I want to toss some M&Ms in that chicks mouth when it's open like that. I just spit my coffee out with that kitchen comment like for reals......get some granite and stainless up in there okay? I wore leggings to work the other day and boots. It's causal Friday every day for me lately. Hope you stay safe this weekend and I can't wait to see the recipes you make!

  9. LOVE that you put a doggy-coat on Cooper! And ugh that chick on the Bachelor is insufferable, I hope Ben wakes up soon and gets rid of her. I mean girlfriend was talking about her "cankles" right after he said he lost some people close to his family and needed them to be understanding that night :-P

  10. I put a coat on my dog too...not ashamed! Otherwise he shivers

    I also watched that Real Housewives I am not sure how I feel yet...have you seen the Cheshire one? It is by far the WORST of them all it's like a train wreck and I cant stop watching.

    Olivia is so annoying for sure since Lace left, I have a feeling she is going to be the new 'villain'

    ReplyDelete
  11. Haha I totally put a little sweater on my dog when it's cold. He HATES it but the days I don't he shivers like crazy if we stop for any length of time. And so jealous of your week. I wish we had a snow day but nope, no snow for us. Just 30 degree weather. <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  13. I haven't watched the bachelor yet this year, but I keep seeing videos and memes of that girl's mouth and it makes me laugh every time! I should try to catch up on what I've missed. Also fleece lined leggings are the best, they are so warm and comfortable!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I was wondering what you thought if RHOP. Seriously, do you think they just found people who wanted to be in it? It is a nice neighborhood?

    ReplyDelete
  15. YAY for your snow day today!!! Totally agree about Olivia, she's so weird. And I couldn't believe how Ben says that he lost two close friends and the first thing she brings up is her legs!! I really hope that was just bad editing!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm cracking up at all your blizzard prep, and hooray for a snow day today! Stay warm. :)

  17. I lived my first 25 years in Connecticut and my husband grew up in Pennsylvania, so we know all about pre-snow stocking up. We live in Florida now though. On Tuesday, we walked over to the grocery store to pick up a couple things we needed to make dinner. We weren't really thinking about it as we shopped, but when we saw our milk and bread sitting on the belt at the register, we looked at each other and started laughing. I guess we subconsciously joined in on the storm prep! Hope you stay warm and cozy and score a snow day on Friday for a long weekend!

  18. That mouth is no joke.
    Its obnoxious!! & I actually liked her in the VERY beginning. BOO!
    Not now-she's all kinds of annoying!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I also try and think of tops that I can pair with my leggings. Love being comfy! I can't decide if I want to start watching Potomac. I probably don't need to add another Bravo show to my list, but I do lov eme some Real Housewives.

  20. If I don't get a snow day out of this storm, I will be bitterly angry for a week. Our outfits yesterday were basically identical so yay! Also, I came home yesterday and The Pilot had bought Peyton the most ADORABLE pink and navy plaid puffy vest and I about died. She has a rain coat but has never had a winter sweater, but lately, she seems cold when we go out. I can't wait to take her out in this snow storm in her little vest. Peyton is going to be more fashionable in the snow then I am.

  21. Ok I am so jealous for your snow day. What's even better is I bet those are built in snow days so y'all dont have to make them up! Enjoy every minute of it. And that video is HILARIOUS!!! I haven't watched this season at all...but her facial expressions cracked me up so much just now I may have to start watching.

  22. I love these confession posts!!! Good luck with the upcoming weather.. if we get even a hint of snow here, the grocery stores are wiped out and it's like the Apocalypse is going on! It's madness. And I don't blame you for putting a coat on Cooper. we have a tiny Yorkie dog who needs to wear coats and sweatshirts for warmth too. :-) and the adorable factor, of course!

  23. I absolutely love fleece lined leggings! They are so comfortable!

  24. So jealous of the snow y'all are getting! Send some to NC! And that video of Olivia... I seriously die hahaha. She is so crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  25. lol I would totally put a jacket on Lola too if it got that cold here. Hope the blizzard doesn't hit too hard and sucks it's coming on the weekend but luckily you got prepared in advance. Those faces Olivia makes....ahhhhh!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. We don't have Bravo!! So I have no clue about any of the RH's and I probably should since they film one of the shows - Atlanta - less than an hour from us! They're calling for snow showers on Friday night, but with a high of 45 the next day the white stuff won't be sticking around! However, I'm still going to the grocery tonight for a few dinner items and wine of course! Y'all stay safe!

    ReplyDelete
  27. This post cracked me up! Man that is an old stove, and I'd put a jacket, a sweater and a parka on my dog if it was -2!

    Xoxo,

  30. I love the idea of sneaking the fleeced leggings into the work outfit! It sounds super cosy. Hope the weather doesn't cause too much chaos for you!

  34. Olivia's mouth kills me. Kills me. She is sooo annoying. And her fake freak out next week. Ugh.

    What kind of hearty meals are you making this weekend for the blizzard?

    Um fleece lined leggings? Sign me up. Where did you get them?

    ReplyDelete
  35. You know, sometimes I don't mind being snowed in. Perfect excuse to do nothing. Hope you get a snow day tomorrow!
