It’s been a hot minute since I’ve participated in the confessions link-up so today… it is on!
… that I have been eating aaaallll the Valentine’s goodies this week. I am usually good about having self control, especially during the day at work, but this week, nope. I’ve been treating myself. And if I don’t stop soon, I’m also going to be treating myself to some new pants because my current ones aren’t going to fit anymore.
… that I am really exhausted with Instagram. One of my goals this year is to hit 5k, so I’ve been working really hard these last few weeks to find my stride and really engage with others. But you guys, trying to increase your following on Instagram organically is basically like banging your head against a wall. Remember that Paula Abdul song Opposites Attract? Yep, it’s just like that… two steps forward and two steps back. No, make that two steps forward and eight steps back. Sigh. I know that you can get lots of followers very quickly by playing the follow/unfollow game, but I just can’t bring myself to do that. I can, however, bring myself to ask for followers, so if you’re not following me on there already, click here and help a sister out! I promise I’m really interesting! Haha. #NoShame
… that I am also exhausted with Twitter. #SameShenanigans #IDontEvenCareIfYouFollowMeOnThere #OKMaybeALittle
… that I hate Twitter anyway so I’m not that mad about it. #CanEveryonePleaseJustStopUsingIt
… that I have just not been motivated to do a lot of things ever since January and February hit. I have a serious case of the post-Christmas “mehs”, and I’m just ready for them to pass. I don’t like feeling like I’m only operating at 80%... because usually I operate at least 110%!
… that Brian and I put the kids to bed a few minutes early on Valentine’s night because they were both acting flipping crazy from too many sweets. Class parties with cookies and at-home parties with cupcakes and candy on the same day do not a happy ending make.
… that last night I went to a movie with my mom and I was totally stoked about not having to be there for the kids’ bedtime routine. I used to hate missing it because it was always my favorite time of the day getting to snuggle each of them, but now with Olivia’s bedtime antics, I’m happy to check out occasionally.
… that I secretly love when Olivia comes and gets in the bed with us at night… as long as we’ve already actually gone to bed, though. Several nights last week she tried to come in there when we were still awake. Sigh.
… that I’m really dreading getting rid of Olivia’s paci. I just know it’s going to be awful, but also, that was the point at which Jacob seemed to grow up instantly. No more baby. :o(
… that I took one bite of a breakfast bar that someone gave me at work this week and I threw the rest of it straight in the trash. I hate wasting food, but you guys, it was just awful. #BorderlineGagworthy.
… that I want all the spring things! This cold shoulder tie sleeve top, this cold shoulder bell sleeve top, this off shoulder swing top, this dress, and these heels… I’ll take one of each, please!
… that I wish I could take one month off from work (or heck, just quit altogether!) just so I could clean out every single inch of our house at the same time. The bad part about cleaning out whenever I have the chance is that I can’t ever just have the entire house clean at once. What good is it to have a cleaned out, sparkly kitchen when your living room that’s right next door is a disaster? #OCD
… that I am feeling completely overwhelmed by clutter lately, and while last year I was able to eliminate a ton of it, I just can’t seem to stay on top of it because it accumulates too quickly when you have kids.
… that the older I get, the more of a minimalist I become. #FutureTinyHouseOwner #JustKiddingILikeToHaveMyStuff
… that the older Beyonce gets, the less and less I like her. I mean, what the heck was that Grammy’s performance?? And why did the Grammy’s people even give her that much time?!?! I didn’t think it was ever going to end. #JustPutEdSheeranBackOn #AndBringBackDestinysChildWhileYoureAtIt
