Confessional Friday & an Award!!

Heyyy! Praise the LORD it's Friday!! Seriously. I need a weekend like no other!! Although I have a list of "to-dos" a mile long. Dang it. Oh well, what else is there to do on a cloudy/rainy Saturday? I will be voting in the GOP Primary tomorrow, and that is numero uno on la lista! :) And if I'm feeling better I'll go workout after that. This sore throat needs to peace out. I've woken up with it the past 5 or so days and then he lingers on until about 11am and then goes elsewhere for the day then returns around 9pm and spends the night with me. He must think I'm lonely, when in fact I am pathetic for mortalizing a sore throat. Woah. Stop. Let's move on shall we.. clearly I need a therapy session. Thank you Leslie @ A Blonde Ambition...

1. Been contemplating some "life changes," this week. No worries I'm not jumping off the deep end, I just am having maybe a mini, mid-life, mid-life crisis. Get it? Half of 50 is 25. .yea. Just need to do some thinking about what I want out of life. It seems to be coming down the pipe a bit fast, like the light at the end of the tunnel is actually the train coming towards me.

2. That being said, I can't decided to poop or get off the pot about Firefighter D. I feel like he's totally head over heels and I'm in the "friend zone." I recognize a lot of role reversal in our relationship like, he's the one that wants it to be more, he's the one that calls & texts most of the time, he's the one that will drive the distance, he's the one who keeps biting his tounge not to say those 3 little words. What's wrong with me? This has never happened. I'm always the one that's clingy. Or maybe is he "the one" because he's that into me? HELP!!! Seriously, I'm clueless. #singlegirlissues

3. My face has been looking a HOT mess this week. Breakouts, dry skin (normally have the most oily skin ever), and big 'ol bags under my eyes. I got some new moisturize which I really like. It's Boots brand at Target. It's awesome, and I think when winter isn't so brutal it'll be beneficial. Also, yesterday I went to Avon and got my old liquid foundation I was using before I had switched off to Cream to powder. NEVER again will I use cream to powder. ew. So, hopefully the problem of acne and dry skin will sease. However, these bags! What do you ladies recommend. I've never had/noticed them before. Seriously, I look 85 today. Eesh.

4. I did a little better on the diet this week. Coulda been better, but has been worse. It's a small improvement & I have eaten 3 salads this week. I hate salad. So this is a big deal.

5. I'm going to see Beauty & the Beast in 3D tonight. I am probably more excited than the four year old I'm taking with me. :)

6. I'd like a money tree in my backyard. Thanks.

7. I have discovered the Blogger app for the iPhone. Um, yea I've had an iPhone for nearly 4 years, and a blog for a little over 1 and I'm JUST now knowing about it. #behindthetimes Anyways, expect some bloggy updates ( like quick pics etc.) in the future. Also, if you iPhone lovers have some favorite apps that you just can't live without, please share! :)

8. I was completely and utterly thrilled when Ashley @ Little Miss One Big Mess gave me an AWARD!! SO sweet!
This award is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers, in the hopes that it will bring many new friends/followers. Leibster is German and means 'dearest' or 'beloved' but it can also mean 'favorite'.  The idea of the Leibster award is to bring attention to blogs with less than 200 followers.  So, in the spirit of good fun I am passing this award on to five other bloggers.  Please stop by and visit them.
Thanks so much Ashley! I've had one of those Debbie Downer kinda weeks, so thanks for shining a little light & knowing that you were thinking about me! :) I love your blog and read ALL your posts, they always make me laugh or smile. :) I hope this award brings you some new followers, I know how much you love to blog and you are finding your niche as I am finding mine too!
 The Rules are:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your five picks for the award and let them know.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogshare-other bloggers.
5. Finally and the best rule of all..........have fun and spread the love!
Here are my 5 picks!
I Hope you all have a lovely weekend. Any advice on ANY of my confessions is much appreciated! Love you all & appreciate you all following me! I have the best followers ever and love having new friends!


  1. Eeee! Thank you so much for the award! I'll blog about it soon. :)

    As for your confessions, I laughed a little about the salad remark. I'm always buying salad and then it just goes bad because I'd have to eat it every day to finish it before it wilts! Who wants to eat salad every day?

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Thanks for the award! My face has been bad this week too! I hate this cold, dry weather messing up my skin!
    Maybe you need to take some time to figure out how you feel about the firefighter. Maybe it's just not right for right now. I hope everything works out!

  3. I just recently switched cleanser's and moisturizer's and my face went out of control!! It seems to be gettting back to normal now though, I think it needed to adjust! Anyway, I can so relate on that one!

  4. My opinion on the guy situation is if you are not feeling the same way, then it's probably best to move on. You don't want to force it and end up hurting him more in the future. But I'm no expert :)

  5. Morgan! Thanks so much for the shout out :) I will share your love on Monday! And I'm with the above commenter - Kristen - if you aren't feeling it then move on. Love or the start of love should be over the moon, crazy feeling, awesome etc etc not friend zone. Also, try washing your face with unscented Dove soap. My dermatologist swears by it as do I!

  6. #6 YES PLEASE!!! And my skin has been crazy this week too. Maybe it's the weather? LOL. I always blame it on the weather.

    Hope you have a great weekend!


  7. Sorry I am a slacker and have not been on blogger all weekend...Thanks for the shout and I am super glad you are finding your blogging way along with MOI because its a little scary doing to alone :) Hope you weekend has been ten times better than your week lovely :)
