I confess: Betty Crocker Clinic, Irma & Laundry Day

I confess, I got all dressed and walked to the gym early Sunday morning, ran for one minute and 27 seconds and decided I just really didn't want to workout.....and left the gym.

I confess I ate 4 cupcakes on my birthday....FOUR!

I then confess that two days later I Miranda Hobbes'd the crap out of those suckers

I confess that oddly....there are two "Irma Gonzalez" that work at my company....and I have been emailing the wrong one all week.


I confess I spilled laundry detergent and then wiped it up with the clothes I was about to wash. That's acceptable right?

I confess that I love that the creator of I Confess, is back to blogging!

I confess life has been all sorts of insane lately....but it's all good....mostly ;)


What do you confess? 

XO, A

I confess:
1. I have sopped up laundry detergent with the clothes I am going to wash...perfectly normal and doesn't waste said detergent.
2. I painted one wall of a spare room yesterday and had a paint accident immediately. I sopped the paint directly from the dropcloth to the wall...waste not, want not.
3. I am loving having 9 weeks off..the first summer off in 12 years.
4. I am brainstorming posts to resurrect my dead blog.
5. I love your blog---so upbeat and creative.

Um, it is totally actually a genius idea to wipe up the laundry detergent with what you're about to wash. Consider it pre-treating.

and I confess ... that I seriously regret asking for an assistant.

Jenna said...

I've gone to the gym only to decide within minutes that I don't want to be there anymore - it happens to the best of us! And, perfectly acceptable to eat four cupcakes on your birthday, anything less and I would be completely disappointed ;)

I always do that with laundry detergent! No worries. Anddd, sometimes I confess I go to the gym, get on the treadmill run five minutes, get bored, stretch, and leave. Bleh... I need motivation!

Jamie said...

I confess that I regularly put on gym clothes/shoes knowing full well that I'm going to flake out.

P!nky said...

Smart move with the laundry detergent for real.

Cupcakes calories don't count on your birthday!

I've gone to the gym and left immediatly before.

I HEART you and hope this weekend works out!

xoxo

Katie said...

wait you walked to the gym? that counts as part of a work out too right?? and totally acceptable to eat what you want on your birthday!

Whitney said...

i miranda hobbes'd my full pan of brownies that i baked this past weekend! i ate 1 of them..and then sprayed them with water from the sink. it was the worst/best thing ive ever done. HAHAHA!

Lindsey said...

hahaha! I can't tell you how many times I've walked to the gym in my apt complex (back in the day), did like a minute and left. Sad, sad, sad. But you actually work out all the time and I do not. SO you are allowed.

I'm so glad Rissy is back too! ABOUT TIME!

citythoughts said...

Birthdays are intended to be days that you eat 4+ cupcakes... a la Miranda Hobbes.

AND

It's perfectly acceptable to wipe up detergent with clothes... I do it all the time!

Rissy said...

if anyone deserves a day off of working out it's YOU! seriously... I'm excited for you lol

Love you oodles!

Ashley said...

ahahaha I love that you refered to the episode where Miranda does that to the cake because I have soooo done that too! too funny!!

JMc said...

haha, I have done that with laundry detergent before. One time I had to use two towels, and then wondered if my washer was going to explode with suds, haha.

arianapia said...

sweets do not count on our day of birth. it's a proven fact :)

also who hasn't walked to the gym, taken a look around (gone for a minute run) and said PEACE!?

because i know i have!

Sami said...

Bahaha I love your confessions! I ate like 3 cupcakes on someone else's birthday! Oops. I email the wrong people all of the time.. it's really bad haha people think I'm a total idiot and the blonde hair doesn't help ;)

Heidi said...

I confess...

I am skipping spin class to go to the pool today....

this hasn't even happened yet, I really suck.

Shannon said...

YES YES YES to making Miranda Hobbes'd a verb. I've been known to do that once in awhile myself! :)

Now, I confess that I want your tiny little butt to head to my blog for a chance to win something REALLY cool.

KatyK said...

I confess that after we discussed Miranda-ing the cupcakes on da twittah that you posted the clip on your blog. Literally cracking up on my lunch.

Faith said...

i do that when i do laundry all the time. perfectly acceptable and normal, hehe.

and only 4 cupcakes on your birthday? seriously? you should have had more! ;)

and i've done that too. sometimes a girl just doesn't want to work out.

Lindsay said...

I confess to doing at least 2 of these same things...often! :)

J and A said...

Ok I do this all the time with workouts. I start and then decide nope totally not today. AND I do the same thing with detergent and I am so clumsy so I spill it all the time.

megan said...

This may be my favorite confession post to date. Especially because of the treadmill comment. And yes, definitely ok to wipe up spilled detergent with clothes.

Alex said...

I have definitely done the whole bit where I go to the gym and leave immediately. No shame! And sopping up detergent with dirty clothes...I find that to be very logical!

Rorie said...

ahahah, i wipe up laundry detergent all the time with clothes I am about to wash!!!

Alyssa said...

Totally acceptable to wipe up detergent with clothes! I'd totally do that!

Cori H. said...

First of all, I love your Nike's! Well, at least you had good intentions for working out, and you did walk to the gym :) has to count for something right? Having 2 people at work with the same name has to be confusing. I'd probably be emailing the wrong person all the time!

Sara Louise said...

I'm laughing my ass of at you wiping up the spilled detergent with the dirty clothes because that's totally what I would have done. Waste not, want not, right?
And I'm loving this' "I Miranda Hobbes'd the crap out of those suckers"... best new phrase ever! I'm stealing it!

Young and Fabulous said...

xoxox

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

YAY for cupcakes!!! I think you deserved all four of them! :D

I think it's clever that you wiped up the detergent with dirty clothes - brilliant girl! :)

Fit With Flash said...

i need to do one of these posts too... and don't worry. i've had those days in the gym too. i once ran to the end of my street and turned around 'cause i wasn't feeling it. it happens. ; )

Ashley said...

The gym thing - done that so many times.

It's wasteful to wipe up the laundry detergent with anything but something you're going to wash, in my eyes ;-)

Jenn said...

I found your blog via Pinky, and I'm your newest follower.

I love that you went to the gym and worked out for 1 minute and left. I've totally done that before. If you don't feel it, you don't feel it! :)
Happy Friday

meghan said...

Happy late birthday!! What a fun pool party from your last post. Looks like a blast! And this post is hilarious. I love that you walked for 1:27 then decided not to workout. That's going to happen to me one day soon and I'm totally going to remind myself of this post and tell myself it's okay.

Amy said...

Hahaha I love these confessions, too good! Especially that first one, definitely have done that before. In college, my roommate and I once got all dressed and ready to go to the gym, and drove to Taco Bell instead. And I confess: that did not happen only one time.

Vickie said...

hahaha! i love this post so much. Especially the Miranda Hobbs/betty crocker clinic. I can't tell you how many times i've done that. so shameful : / hahah!
