Thursday Confessions

Let's get this 'fesh sesh started, shall we?! And even though Jessica is sadly not hosting this fun linkup today {go read her horror story as to why}, I wanted to go ahead and get some things off my chest. 

I confess that: 

+ Jessica's story about that creep stealing her online identity: stealing pictures of her and her children and basically claiming to be her and that Jessica's children were hers has me really scared. So, any photos of my kiddos will now have an annoying watermark; but I'd rather be safe than sorry. Some people are real weirdos and clearly are certifiably insane to pull stunts like that. 

+ Even with the special "Please don't knock or ring the doorbell; the baby is sleeping" sign I've taped to my front door, delivery people still ring our doorbell. And our UPS guy, bless him, doesn't ring the doorbell, but honks when he's leaving my house. Seriously, y'all, I'm about to make them come inside and deal with a cranky toddler who was awakened from his nap if they keep that up. 

+ Speaking of waking toddlers up from naps, our neighbors across the street (like, 150 yards away) works out every Friday in his garage-turned-gym during nap time. And by working out, I mean doing CrossFit and literally slamming 300+ pound weights on his concrete garage floor with the garage door wide open. And we can hear that slamming sound in our house, no joke. It's that loud. He has woken both Walker and me up from naps on multiple occasions, and I had had enough last week. I texted Brandon, who in turn texted the guy and it finally stopped. But for real, pregnant hormonal lady over here was THISCLOSE to marching across the street and letting him have a piece of my mind. (And he even has a toddler and a newborn at home…!?) 

+ I get major face chub when I'm pregnant. Like, major. (It doesn't help that I practically eat whatever I want when I'm pregnant, but eh, whatever.) BUT. My legs and arms will stay the same, but man, I gain weight in my face like none other. I stand in my mirror and pull back my face chub and am like, "Oh, hello! So that's what you actually look like!" Awful, but true. 

+ I love me some spring weather, but this rain can leave anytime it wants. I truly never knew the value of a sunny day until I stayed at home and had a toddler to entertain. 

+ Walker kept wanting to read the same "Curious George" book over and over (during naps and at bedtime each day for weeks on end), so I hid it. Whoops! I'll bring it back out in a few weeks. ;) 

+ I get really annoyed when people have vocal fry (like the Kardashians). I just want to scream, "Do you really talk like that? Do you hear yourself?" 

+ I'm starting to get really terrified about having two children. Some days I can barely handle one and am looking for the nearest adult to "adult" better than me…and I'm about to be responsible for two little lives. Tell me that I can do it…?! 

+ We have gotten really into "The Tudors" lately…and if you haven't noticed with my incessant posting about shows like "The White Queen," we're on a royal history-watching binge as of late. (And yes, I realize that makes me a nerd.) But y'all, Henry Cavill is in it and whoa man, he's easy on the eyes! 

+ Pregnant brain is real, y'all. I swear, if I don't write it down or do it right as I think of it, it doesn't happen. I can't tell you how many trips to the grocery store I've made in the last week or two because I've forgotten one (main) ingredient for that night's recipe. And I never do that! 

So what about y'all? What are you confessing on this Thursday? 

*Also linking up with Annie and Natalie for "Thoughts for Thursday" 



  1. You CAN do it with two and you will--I have faith. You're a great mom and you'll be a great mom to two!
    I hear you on the glottal/vocal fry. It's hard to listen to. And I'm glad that the neighbor stopped slamming his weights on the ground. Cranky toddlers are no fun for anyone!

  2. Ok, the Curious George this is HILARIOUS! I can 100% see myself doing something like that!! I've watched The Tudors series a few times and love it so much!! Henry Cavill...whoa buddy. He is (ok and a little Ben Affleck even though he is a douche) the only reason I let Nathan drag me to the Batman vs. Superman movie. Veryyy easy on the eyes!

  3. After reading Jess' story, it's got me questioning if I want to keep doing this when we have kids!! So annoying these weirdos ruin all of the fun!! Oh man, Henry Cavill... yum!! I didn't know he was in that show - I love time period things like that!! BTW, you should watch Man from U.N.C.L.E. Henry and Armie Hammer is in it and oh boy, it's so nice watching them ;) You're going to be amazing with 2 kids!! It's going to be so much fun :)

  4. HAHA you hid his book that is hilarious! Whenever I put my niece to bed and she wants to read 100 books I skip like 5 pages between each page I read #woops

  5. You can do it!! I have faith in you because I already think you're superwoman. And yes, Jess' story scared the crap out of me. Seriously considering taking pictures down, but I hate that. Ugh. And did you say Henry Cavill...I might have to start watching! haha. Hope you have a good day lady!

  6. Jess' story scares me too! I need someone to explain this watermark deal for future pictures. That's hilarious you hid the book! I can see myself doing that to my boys in the future. You've got this Mom! Having two is scary but you will get in a routine and you will wonder what life was like with one! Pregnancy brain is for reals!! I NEVER believed people until it happened to me. Hang in there Momma!

  7. I can't believe people still ring your doorbell! I would get a wooden version of the same sign and then open the door and throw it at them when it happens.
