I Confess

Squeeze The Juice:

I confess that as I was doing Physique 57 at my house the other night, I totally busted out laughing at myself during the ballet bar shimmy to the point where I had to pause the workout, collect myself and try again. I truly looked ridiculous!

I confess I own more than three things simply because Emily Maynard has worn them.

I confess I turn my air off most days when I leave for work just so I can turn it on 68 when I come home.

I confess I bought a dress from a boutique the other day via phone and had to call the girl back after I already purchased it to see how much it was. Yeah, that was embarrassing. 

I confess I have always wanted to write a book. I have started countless manuscripts just never finished (I feel so Jo March when I say "manuscripts")

I confess that since I joined Twitter I feel like talking in hashtags is totally appropriate. #isthatsowrong?

I Confess I felt like a big sad loser when I was filling out paperwork for work this week and realized my “emergency contact” lives nearly five hours away from me. I’m assuming that’s not super helpful in the event of a real emergency

I confess that instead of bringing up the entire case of water I purchased from the store, I have been bringing up 2-3 bottles a night instead. #lazy

I confess. I didn't eat one real dinner last week….Leftovers, ice cream, pickles...I was a regular snack machine.  And no, I don't have anything to announce. I just enjoy maternal snacking.

What do you confess?????


Jenna said...

I also confess that I normally burst out into laughter whenever trying to do video workouts... it's just so funny to picture what someone would think if they walked in :)

Same in terms of the waterbottle thing... who actually has the strength or willpower to carry the whole thing upstairs after a long day of work!?


Jess said...

I confess that I am secretly (or not so secretly) jealous of all of my friends that are pregnant or have kids even though I know I'm not quite ready myself.

I confess that I love listening to Christmas music (even this time of year) and only switch my iPod system when my co-worker comments "Is that Christmas music??"

Ditto on the water. I usually leave the garage door open and my trunk open and the hubby carries it in when he gets home.


Abby said...

Ha, these are great! You should keep working on those manuscripts, you are a great writer!!

The Southland Life said...

I do the water bottle thing too - I currently have a have used case in my backseat. So sad... And I lurve Jo Marsh - keep up your manuscripts!

Seashells and Southern Belles said...

oh my gosh love these!
1. You must have been on Possessionista, she is all about where Emily Maynard gets her stuff!
2. I do the same thing with Cokes. I leave them in my trunk and just take a few up at a time.
3. I thought of a storyline the other night that would be perfect for a a book and even told my friend about it, but I would have nooo idea how to go about writing a book
4. and as for Twitter, #idothesamething. I say stuff in my head and I'm like oh that would be my twitter hash for this thought, ha

Young and Fabulous said...


theres a hashtag for ya!

totally with you on the water thing. I'd rather leave it in the car instead of lugging it inside.

i need to write a book too...write yours and I'll proofread it and you can do the same with mine :)

I confess that I want to see you ballet bar shimmy...so please vlog it?

no really though when are you vlogging mamacita?! jump on that bandwagon! :)


Diana Mieczan said...

Suze said...

I may have brought up 2 or 3 water bottles up to my apartment at a time too when i lived close by to college haha.

Lindsay said...

natasha {schue love} said...

I love Emily too!! And I would love to write a book too...how neat would that be?!

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

and yes to say manuscripts feels so Jo March!

Rissy said...

Love this post!
I need to create a link for this post but an lazy.. and I know you feel me with your water bottle sleuth.

I love that you had to call back to get the price. Because I would do that... and be too embarrassed to call back.

I hashtag everything now #whitegirlproblems ; )


ang said...

I too own something simply because Emily Maynard wore it. And I too have been known to actually use the term "hash tag" in regular conversation! #embarrassing

Sabrina Says Blog said...

P.s. In the past week... I have had ice cream 3 times for dinner. One time was ice cream cake!!!

Michelle said...

HAHA you and your snacking ;)

I love hashtags too!! I love your confessions!!

Stevie Leigh said...

Ha! I love this. I, also, loved this season's Bachelor and was OBSESSED with Little Women growing up.

Just stopping by from Following the Walkers (www.unefillesleigh.blogspot.com)! I'll definitely be back!


Lindsey said...

I have a lot to confess, I must do so soon.

I confess that instead of bringing up the entire case of water I purchased from the store, I have been bringing up 2-3 bottles a night instead. #lazy

SO ME, why we are the same!! Don't think I haven't done this before.

Nuha said...

haha you are the cutest thing ever...I bet your book would be amazing!

Sam W. said...

i miss weeks of snacking dinners!! they are the best :)

somehow my husband doesn't buy into them...no idea why. you can have a little of everything all at once!!

Julie said...

I confess that sometimes I just do workout videos to laugh at my dogs reaction then stop following and just have a dance party with him.

I confess that when I bought Ben and Jerry's the other night because "I needed change for laundry" I actually already had the change, but wanted an excuse for ice cream.

I confess that at least 1/3 of my to do list were items I had already finished, just so I could cross them off.

Great post Ashley! Always making me laugh!

Alexandra Bee Blog said...

Haha you're too funny! I love Emily Maynard and am also totally lazy about carrying water! I also have a funny story related to not asking the price of something-- I love getting body scrubs, and every time I go to the spa here in Cville they try to sell me this body brush they use that gets the dead skin off and supposedly helps reduce cellulite. Well, this winter, I decided to finally buy the thing. Well, when my bill was MUCH more expensive than I expected, I was astounded. I was so gobsmacked that I left and didn't even ask about the price. It turns out I spent $45 (yep, that's right) on a dumb brush!

meme-and-he said...

haha I love these confessions. you are hillarious. I don't judge you at all for the water bottles...those cases are too dang heavy!

Michaela said...

Always talk in hashtags. #everybodysdoingit

and I love Emily. Also- thanks for letting me redo your little corner for midgets. It was so fun (: And your apartment is really cute!

Tiffany said...

First off....loved the ideas that Micheala gave you for your house...so cute! Second, I'm so guilty of the carrying in two bottles of water a night instead of the case---why do I do that? I have no idea. The best part is that I carry them in to drink after I do my workout video...where I lift weights. Yea.


Megan said...

Oh my gosh, I totally used to do the water bottle thing in college!! I was not carrying that huge thing up three flights of stairs!!! Haha.

Snacking is totally appropriate. It's what I'm doing tonight. : )

Emily said...

I loved this. You are always too cute.

P.S. I always wanted to be like Jo March... Sigh.

Jamie said...

haha...love your maternal snacking!

Unknown said...

Raven said...

The laughing at yourself, TOTALLY me. and I would buy EVERYTHING Emily has! Her style is to die for. Her tall boots with her little dresses, I love her!!!

Unknown said...

I wanna know what 3 things. #dontleavemehanging

Janna Renee said...

i confess that I ate 2.5 Great American Cookie Co. Brownies through out the day today...so sad lol.
What is the whole hashtag thing? I don't have twitter and keep seeing # everywhere! what does it mean?!

Chelsea said...

Hahaha, this is such a fun post. I love the Twitter//hashtags one :) I think they can be totally appropriate!

Anonymous said...

I confess, I LOVE your blog and this post in particular!! I completely agree with the Twitter #hash-tags. So annoying. I just might have to do one on my blog very soon! I'll be sure to mention you in the post!
