Wednesday Confessions

Happy Wednesday (which is actually my Friday - yay for vacation days and long weekends!)
Here are 10 confessions for this start to my "weekend!"

About once a month I will accidentally stay up way too late watching old country music videos... I don't know what over comes me, but once I start, I just can't stop!

I hate loading and unloading the dishwasher.  In fact, last week my husband very gently asked me if there was a reason that I "boycotted" the dishwasher - I was hoping he wouldn't notice...

I do really well eating healthy until about 9PM; and at that point, all bets are off.

I like to start every Monday with a full tank of gas in my car.  It doesn't matter if I still have half a tank... it needs to be topped off for me to start the week off on the right foot!

Whenever John and I fly on a plane together, I always get the middle seat - lame! But I love him, so I'm happy to do it.

I finally parted ways with my (very, very) old first pair of Sperrys.  Scout had kindly jazzed them up for me, so it really was time.  It was a sad day (although John was quite thrilled at the departure!).  Some shoes have just been with you through it all!

A few weeks ago I got a standing desk at work.  And so far, I've stood for a rousing total of 10 minutes!  I've found that I just cannot concentrate standing up!

I tried the new "promote a pin" on Pinterest, and I must say, I am quite impressed!  Cheers for re-pins!  Has anyone else tried this yet?

I love cherry tomatoes; I could eat them like candy!

John and I are in desperate need of a new TV show to watch... any suggestions?! We spend the majority of our night watching TV trailers with no success!


  1. Totally do the middle seat thing when I travel with my husband too!!! We also fill the cars up every Sunday without exception. My husband never wants us to be worried about not being able to get places on time... He's always afraid he will be on empty the day he has an important hearing... So we have processes in place to make sure that doesn't happen! ;)

  2. Oh my gosh I'm 100% with you on #2!!! And when Chris and I fly together I always get the middle seat too!! Too funny... Does John get the aisle? Because Chris likes the aisle.. Anyways... fun post lady and I hope that you are having a great week! :-)

  3. I'm ALWAYS in the middle seat, too! The things we do for them ;) As for TV shows, we are just finishing Sons of Anarchy (okay) and are going to watch Bloodline next - I've heard good things about that one!

  4. i dont blame you for not standing when you work!! i dont think i'd like that at all... might be able to do one of those exercise balls tho. xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  5. I think I still have my first pair of Sperry's (from Jr year of high school!) that I keep for "just in case". A lot of people have standing desks at my office and they sound good for like 10-20 min a day but that's about it.

  6. I love your confessions! I would not last long with a standing desk either #lazy. I need to know more about this promote a pin process.... Have you guys watched Mad Men? Bill and I were obsessed with it and just recently finished it. We are in withdrawal!

  7. So funny you mentioned about your Sperry's..I just got rid of my first pair too that I'd had since my freshman year of college!

  8. oh I am so with you with the eating thing...if someone could lock my fridge and cabinets around 8pm that would be perfect. I enjoy relaxing with some sort of food at night. It's the worst!

  9. We were watching "Elementary", but I am not crazy about the Kitty character who was introduced, so I have not bothered catching up yet.

  10. I NEVER use the dishwasher. I'd love to not have one in our next house. And yes for the middle seat. I like the middle seat if I know the person I'm flying with... but by myself, sorry I need the window! :) Enjoy your long weekend! xo, Champagne&Suburbs

  11. My boss just got a standing desk and he's loving it! I don't think I could do it though. As for TV shows, we are obsessed with Big Brother, but it's about half way through the season already. We loved watching The Office from the beginning though!

  12. Props for getting that desk- I'm sure it just takes some getting used to! And I looked for that "promote a pin" where is it exactly?!

  13. Halt and Catch Fire, Homeland, Humans, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix) :)

  14. Totally with you on the airplane seat, ugh. They when someone "large" sits on the other side of you and husband secretly laughs. Let me know if you start a tv show that's good, I've been wanting to start one and I'm leaning towards Scandal

  15. Yes to the dishwasher boycotting -- I boycott that and the washer/dryer! And have you watched Astronaut Wives?! I love it! Definitely going to check out the promote a pin feature!

  16. I really need to learn about promoting pins!

  17. I've never tried to promote a pin but I've heard great things about it and I think I'm going to have to try to do it!

  18. Cleaning out the dishwasher is the chore that I hate MOST! I have no idea why, but I'd rather clean toilets! Have you started watching Bloodline yet? My husband and I are totally hooked.

  19. I need to start doing that full-tank of gas thing-- I always seem to be running low at the worst time-- which isn't really THAT low because I'm so paranoid of running out, haha, but having a set routine to fill up isn't such a bad idea. I haven't been watching much of anything other than Gossip Girl and I'm guessing John wouldn't be such a fan, haha.
