I Confess....

I confess I always open  my junk mail. Since direct marketing is what I do, I always like at to see what other companies are doing....Of course what I do isn't junk mail ;)

I confess I am the worst hostess ever…..I had friends come over and my beverage options were almond milk, diet coke and protein shake.

I confess I wore yoga pants disguised as real pants out to dinner one night

-I confess I went to an event the other night where I had to fill out a registration form. The options were “Early 20s” and you got a purple nametag or “Late 20s/Early 30s” and you got a blue nametag. I stood at the registration table for no less than 3 minutes trying to figure out what I could do – I considered lying and going with a purple tag….who makes the rules of what qualifies as “early 20s” anyway? I could blend the name tags and wear a purple and a blue….where was the mid-20s option? I’m clearly not ready to be forced into a different age bracket.

I confess I drove to three different stores on Saturday looking for A donut. I was CRAVING one but, I know myself too well. Anything that comes in bulk will be eaten so the Sweet 16 bag and Entemmens 12-pack were sadly out of the question.

I confess I CANNOT WAIT to see this movie....like I'm pretty certain it's going to the best thing ever


I confess, I did not like Bachelor Ben at all....until he played David Gray on the piano for Lyndsi....he now
has points in my book.

Kate said...

I've been on pinterest now for months and have yet to understand why it's such a craze! Explain. :)

And yoga pants doubled as regular black pants -- not going to lie, I do it at least once a week, hahaha!!!

Katie said...

Ahh when Ben played that song on the piano I about lost it. I confess I will totally wear a "work out" outfit to the grocery store even though I haven't stepped foot near a gym or done any form of exercise. Hey, it's comfy.

Erin said...

Glad you're onto Pinterest now! I have gotten so many ideas for home decor- it's awesome!

SweetCaroline said...

I cannot wait to see The Vow either!

Virginia Belle said...

I try to wear my yoga pants way too many places. But with the right top, I convince myself that I can pull them off.


I am beyond excited for that movie! It looks adorable and I love the excuse to stare at Channing Tatum for hours :)

Samantha said...

xoxox

Aimee said...

OMG. I will be turning 26 this year and not to be dramatic but I'm not looking forward to being closer to 30 than 20. AND I am so excited to see the VOW. I don't think it will disappoint!

Brianna said...

mmmmmm donuts! I can't just eat one either... it's bad... the bag of like 30 mini chocolate ones? that taste kinda waxy? you bet I can eat the entire thine in one sitting! grosssss
I'm so glad you're on pinterest now! it's addicting (:
ummm I'm definitely counting down the days to see The Vow! love me some Channing Tatum!

Sami said...

Ohh lawd I am quite sure that I will be blubbering like an idiot when I see the Vow, kind of like when I saw P.S. I love you. That movie still puts me in a fit of tears! You will totes become a Pinterest addict but fear not bc mine wore off after a few weeks! Last but not least, I borrowed this post from Rissy last week :)

Sarah said...

The real question -- I need details on this event. What was the point of having to choose an age group? At 26 myself, I don't feel like I'm in my late 20s, but I consider early 20s college.

Alex said...

Just reading about the name tag debacle freaked me out. How dare they try to divide up the 20s!!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Haha! I totally would wear yoga pants out to a dinner, you are so not alone!

Alyssa said...

I am dying to see that movie!! Looks soooo good! Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close looks great too!

Angel said...

ooh i'm excited about pinterest - i'm so obsessed. it's a major time waster. and i can't wait for the vow either! and eek i can't wait to watch the episode tonight online - generally guys who play piano aren't super high on my list, but i'm starting to like it more and more.

Shayla Y.F.F. said...

haha! Pinterest is addicting and dangerous. Proceed with caution. And if you invited me offer and offered me a protein shake I would have seriously considered it!

Hannah said...

Haha that thing about Pinterest is so true it's sad! I always wear yoga pants disguised as real pants...oooooops haha. xo

Katy said...

I also just joined Pinterest and am a little lost! And, I turn 27 in a few weeks and am NOT ready to be that much closer to 30!

Chelsea Coleen said...

Again, your blog is the first one I read on my phone in the morning. and then I get to work and never comment because I get consumed by other things! anyways, I can’t wait to see that movie either, I love them. LOVE I tell you. I am so surprised I have never read the book.

And bachelor. That show is so crazy. But one thing I love about it, is us girls are all the same. Like I feel a togetherness because we ALL watch it. think the same things and love certain parts, and Ben playing David Gray was amazing. I sat there with stone watching it and got goosebumps. That song, its perfection. and on the same bachelor- girl- togetherness-note: I loved how once the girls saw Shawntel’s face they knew EXACTLY who she was, “it’s the funeral director. Shawntel!” We all watch this show. And I love that 

And I am the same way about food. I will go anywhere for it, drive the distance to suffice the delicious craving. I was in a weird taco bell phase one random time in college, and when I was home for Christmas I really wanted it. the closest taco bell was 20 minutes. I drove 20 minutes there. and 20 minutes back and then ATE it at home, because I had to wait till I could sit down and had everything in place to thoroughly enjoy it.

Meg {henninglove} said...

i can't wait to see the vow either, waterworks for sure! and i don't like ben either he is putting me to sleep. exceopt for the fact that he owns a jack russell and i have two but that is the only reason!

Sara Louise said...

Life without yoga pants wouldn't be nearly as comfy!

meghan said...

i have 0 doubt that i would have stood there for 3+ minutes as well. who clumps lower 30's into upper 20's? that's not fair...but depending on the event i also wouldn't have wanted to be considered lower 20's. i'm 26, so i would have had the some argument with myself...even though clearly i'm upper 20's. yikes.

and i love yoga pants. i wish i could get away with them at work, but someone would say something i'm sure of it. sometimes what i consider to be relaxing is just coming home from work, throwing up yoga pants or leggings and lounging on the couch. it's the best.

Courtney B said...

Best post EVER!
I am loving the idea of disguising yoga pants to a night out!
And you are not the only one who has driven to multiple stores for a donut! Except I buy them in bulk. Yes, I have an addiction and yes, it is a problem!
