Thoughts for Thursday: My Confessions

I saw this on Annie's blog a couple of weeks ago and thought it was fun, so I wanted to take part. Here are my confessions:

+ I confess that I had a super hard time preparing myself to leave Walker for our trip. The longest I've ever left him is two nights last October for our anniversary, but I know it's time; he's 18 months old and mama and daddy need a break! 

+ I confess that I get really annoyed at people who ask questions about a topic before trying to find the answers themselves. 

+ I confess that I really wish I could look like Heidi Powell, but uh, I like my pancakes with wheat, thankyouverymuch. 

+ But on that note, I stare at myself every night in the mirror before I take a shower and pull back skin that I wish wasn't there and say, "Man, I need to lose this." And then I have a glass of wine and get over it.

+ I confess that I know I'm too hard on myself. 

+ I confess that I am a clean freak to the max. The day before I leave on vacation, I will seriously make us drink out of Red Solo Cups {#classy} so that I can come home to an empty dishwasher. There is nothing better than coming home to a clean house. 

+ I confess that I'm totally okay with having just one child, but I know we will try for baby #2 because I want Walker to have a built-in best friend, and I know Brandon is all about two kiddos. I am technically an only child {my siblings are all my half-siblings, even though we don't act that way to one another}, and I always wondered what it would be like growing up with someone who looked like me. 

+ I confess that my Pinterest boards are alphabetized, but please don't look in any of the drawers in my home. 

+ I confess that I am a horrible gift-giver. Give me a list of things you want and it takes so much pressure off of me!

+ I confess that I have a super tough {some may say bitchy} outer exterior, but I get my feelings hurt easier than some may think. 

+ I confess that I don't really want to go back to my 10-year high school reunion this fall, but know that I will anyway. It's going to be better people-watching than at the airport on Thanksgiving.

+ I confess that I have never been to see a movie by myself, and the first time I ate lunch alone was this year. 

+ I confess that I truly believe that what Theodore Roosevelt said is true: "Comparison is the thief of joy." 

+ I confess that Oliver {our cat} was my baby before Walker was born, and now he drives me absolutely crazy. 

+ I confess that, as I'm typing this, I really want a donut. And some coffee. But I'm settling with water and some homemade granola. 


  1. Coming home to a clean dishwasher is a must in our house too - I can't go away with the house dirty! I don't think I've eaten alone, yet!

  2. Yes to the people who ask questions without trying to look up the answer first!!!! It drives me crazy when people do this on Facebook. I want to tell them #google but I try to move on and not let it bother me ;)

  3. I too need to come home to a clean house. I can't relax if not. I cannot stand people who won't research their own questions. Drives me batty. Try not to be so hard on yourself, I do it myself so I know how difficult it is to break that habit.
