Wednesday Confessions

I feel like someone used to do a “Wednesday Confessions” link up, but I can’t find it for the life of me. Anyway, I just felt like confessing today…

photo-1422207134147-65fb81f59e38I haven’t read a book in months.

I may be addicted to Flip or Flop and stayed up entirely too late watching it last night. Why is this show so addicting??

I have tried and tried to get on the maxi dress/skirt trend… but it just doesn’t work on me. I think I’m just too short.

I get super excited for other people’s babies but am not entirely ready for another of my own.

Some days, I really hate working. Plus, my office is entirely too cliquey sometimes.

Whenever I get to work early, it makes me feel like I won a prize or something.

I still haven’t made Abbie’s 2.5 year old checkup appointment.

Or switched her doctor.

There are 2 bills I’ve been meaning to call and pay for weeks, but keep forgetting.

I hate olives and capers. YUCK.

When I fold Abbie’s diapers, I don’t let the team colors of our VT rivals touch each other. Orange diapers absolutely cannot touch blue or green ones.

Some blogs I used to love have gotten really boring or gone almost entirely to sponsored content, and it stinks.

I truly don’t understand how so many moms function with toddlers that don’t sleep through the night. I would not make it through the day. Seriously.

I have a loose plan for Chris for Father’s Day, but haven’t actually purchased anything yet.

I’m going to Indianapolis for two days next week and don’t even have a suitcase. I need to work on borrowing one of those…

Sometimes I am REALLY jealous of SAHMs.

Abbie is showing zero interest in potty training and I don’t even care. (Thank you, cloth diapering.)

This made me cry. Raising a girl is so rewarding but so hard.

It’s only June, and I’m already tired of the summer heat and humidity. #whereisfall

I don’t care about the Kardashians at all and I really wish there was a way to never see news about them again.

I feel like I’m failing at Weight Watchers lately. I just want to eat everything for no reason at all and can’t seem to shake the 190s.

What would you confess today?

  1. Hahaha! We are big GT fans and my heart hurts any time I have to buy anything red or red/black/white. My first thought is “will this make me look like a UGA fan?” and I am already over summer too.

    1. Oh gosh, I’m glad I’m not the only one!

      Side note, we are not friends on Nov 12, but we can be friends before and after 😉 GO HOKIES!

  2. Oh I LOVE flip or flop (and really everything on hgtv)! We’ve been addicted to beachfront bargain hunters the last month or two! I lol’d at not letting the rival color diapers touch the orange ones- sounds like something I would do. I actually can’t ever decided on a blog design for myself that I love because I’m so weird about colors… I don’t want any other scheme that might look like a football rival of mine! 😉

    1. OMG, I used to hate HGTV… and then I bought a house. Crazy.

      And Chris thinks I’m nuts with the colors thing… I’m glad you sympathize with me! I’m so superstitious with football.

  3. I’m so with you on Fall!! Bring it. It’s been hot for entirely too long. I just went through Aria’s clothes to take out all the jeans and long sleeves. Made me miss those days.

  4. I’m obsessed with all of those HGTV shows. I could waste(and do) so much time watching them. They’re massively addicting! I always forget to pay certain bills or make phone calls until the evening when the business/phone lines are closed. It’s like agh! I’ll do it first thing in the morning…..and then I forget until the next night. Terrible! And yeah, the no sleeping toddler thing. Seriously don’t get that one. It would be horrible! #sleepnazi

    1. Why does that not surprise me about you 😉

      My problem is it’s hard to make those calls at work so I put it off, and then they don’t get done.

      And I’m glad I’m not the only #sleepnazi!

  5. All HGTV shows are seriously addicting. I just can’t stop watching! I never seem to catch new episodes of Flip or Flop, but I think I’ve seen the same 10 old episodes about 10 times each. But I keep watching anyway. And I totally feel the same way when I get to work early!

    Potty training, ugh. We’re attempting to make the leap this weekend, but I have conflicting thoughts on the subject. Part of me is SUPER excited to be rid of diapers (the cost and the hassle of changing them). But the other part of me thinks diapers are convenient, especially when we go places – we don’t have to worry about accidents and we just go on our merry way. So we’ll see. Good luck to you when Abbie does show interest!

    1. I record the episodes so I don’t miss them! #crazy. For reference, at least in Eastern time, they’re on Tuesdays at 9 🙂

      And I figure she won’t go to kindergarten in diapers, so it’s fine!

  6. Great post idea! I’ll join in: I hoard emails that I am sure I will need in the future. I have over 100 emails in my personal account and over 500 at work. I rarely if ever look at them twice. Now that I am on vacation, I drink 0-1 glasses of water a day. It’s all coffee, diet rootbbeer, diet raspberry. I used to drink only water at school/work. I’m totally off the wagon and I know better. I don’t need or even like to leave home, and I think I could easily become a hermit. Sometimes when I’m home all weekend, I am amazed by how busy life is when I finally go out!

    1. Oh gosh, I’m the SAME way about emails. It’s the worst. And go drink a glass of water!!!

      I used to be a homebody, but now I get antsy if I’m not doing SOMETHING…so I clean when that hits and I’m at home!

  7. You’re so awesome.

    I agree about the maxi dresses! Someone needs to help a short girl out. I mean, I’m not going to get up there anymore. I peaked at 5’3″ 🙂
    I also agree about the whole potty training bit. She’ll get there when she gets there. I mean, our girls won’t want to wear diapers to college, will they? LOL 🙂

    Have an awesome Thursday xo

    1. Hahaha, I don’t know that I’m that awesome, but I’ll take it. 🙂

      And I sure hope they don’t go to college in diapers! Haha.

  8. I hate when a blog I love gets too sponsor-y makes me so sad. I have to say I agree with the olives and capers too. YUCK! Weight watchers worked wonders for me when I first stared my weight lost journey! Keep up with it mama you’ll get there! If you need someone to talk to about weightloss lemme know I am here for you! I went from 280 to 150 if I can do it you can!

    1. Oh wow that’s amazing! I know I’ll get there… just the plateaus are annoying, you know? Slow but steady….

I’m Jess! I’m a working mama of two sweet sisters living in the DC area. This is my space to share inspiration, real stories of working motherhood, recipes, style, and more! I can’t start my day without coffee and always try to show the real side of motherhood – the good and the challenging. I’m so glad you’re here – thanks for following along on my journey!
