Thoughts for Thursday: My Confessions

Even though Jessica isn't doing this anymore, I still loved the thought of sharing my confessions with y'all each Thursday, so I thought I'd link up with Annie and Natalie to share some of mine today. ;) 

+ Aside from our random (bad) thunderstorms, it's really starting to feel like summer and I'm loving every second of it. The sunny, longer days; Coppertone Babies sunscreen; lighter, easier suppers; and the beginning of the summer slowdown -- I love you, summer. 

+ Brandon and I will text in GIFs and it seriously cracks me up. It's almost like a competition as to who can send back the funnier GIF in response. On Monday, he told me he got a hummingbird feeder and sod for the backyard, letting me know that the sod was apparently super fresh at the little feed store down the street from his office. All I could respond with was this (and excuse the language): 

Seriously, anytime anyone says anything is "fresh," that line is ALL I think about! Oops!

+ I'm really bad about taking naps when my kid(s) do. I'm always the one who wants to get 5,001 things done during nap time, but on Tuesday, y'all, I totally slept when Walker did and it felt amazing. Yes, I had laundry to fold, bread to bake, bathrooms to clean, etc., but I slept and it was one of the best things I did for myself all week! I really need to make it a priority to do that at least once a week moving forward. 

+ Newest pregnancy craving? Cocoa Krispies. Don't ask me why; I haven't eaten them since I was probably 10, but I saw them in the store and it was basically, "OMG HAVE TO HAVE THEM NOW." And every bite is totally worth it! ;) 

+ I don't buy anything online without a promo code. It's almost a game to me. Either I get money back with Ebates, or I use Retail Me Not, or I have a paper coupon mailed/given to me by the store…but I always have some sort of a code! (If I don't have one, I don't buy it. What's the fun in that?!) 

+ Bad weather freaks me the freak OUT. We had some really bad storms roll through the DFW area Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning and I was a mess. Like, putting all the toys in the backyard away so they wouldn't blow away; covering our outdoor glass table in case of hail; making sure we had candles and lighters/matches ready; and flashlights full of batteries. Just call me Auntie Em over here, but I can't stand bad weather. I love me some Texas, but not its bad weather in the spring. 

+ I absolutely loathe drying my hair -- especially when the weather starts warming up here. I sweat like none other during that arduous process! That said, I seriously use dry shampoo about three days in a row. Whoops? 

So what about you? What are you confessing this week?


  1. Yay for a mid day nap! You probably needed it if you took one. Like I said to you before, growing a baby is hard work! :) Love the texting with gifs! My friends and I do this a bunch and it's always entertaining! Glad you guys are safe after those storms--never fun :(

  2. Oh my gosh, I hate drying my hair too. Like it is such a process. I let mine air dry so often, it is embarrassing. I'd rather shower an hour ealry, just so I don't have to blow dry my hair.

  3. Some of the bad weather in Texas has been intense! People on my IG are talking about flooding and damage... I hope you're staying safe! And I love to text in GIFs too! So fun!

  4. The smell of Coopertone - SWOON! It my be my favorite smell in the whole world. It has taken every bone in my body not to buy reeces puffs cereal throughout this whole pregnancy, they just sound so delicious so I totally get your cocoa krispie craving! Those just get a little soggier than I like. Wow, can you tell I'm hungry?! Yay for naps! I thought I was tired the first trimester. HA. Haahhahah. This is like a whole other level!

  5. Blow drying your hair is such a chore! Praise The Lord for dry shampoo! And yes to the Bridesmaid reference. That's one of my favorite movies!

  6. Haha, yay for dry shampoo! I HATE drying my hair too - I wash t night, let it dry while I sleep and then straighten or style it in the morning... #momproblems

  7. You should definitely nap too! You need your rest. I hate storms too! We had tornados rolling through last night and that is not fun! Especially with a firefighter husband who was headed out as the sirens were going off :/

  8. Napping during the day is so hard because it's when I get the most stuff done! But definitely take advantage while you still can!

  9. Gal, you totally need to be taking advantages of naps while you are pregnant!! It's SO much harder to do once their are two kiddos around, I promise :)

  10. I wish sooo bad they had the gif texting for Android... Stephen and I did it for a little over FB and I was laughing so hard!! I hate the bad storms too - I can't even imagine! I was going to try to be better with blow drying my hair... yeah that didn't happen. And now, I'm trying to workout more so I have to wash my hair everyday which means I haven't been straightening it as much #buneveryday

  11. haha so funny y'all text that way! totally feel you on drying your hair. I go to bed with mine wet almost every night. Might wake up looking like I have an afro/lion's mane but hey! at least I got to avoid drying it before bed ;)

  12. My girls have way outgrown naps and I still indulge in that small little daily treat ;) fifteen minutes and I feel refreshed!
