I confess

How about some Monday confessions for you all today.  I saw Susannah did something similar the other week and I feel like I have some things to get off my chest as well so here goes....

I confess that laundry is my least favorite chore. Sometimes I leave laundry in the dryer for a couple days until finally T.J. asks me where all his boxers are. 

I confess sometimes I leave wet clothes in the washer and have to wash them again. #worstchoreever #badwife

I confess that I re-read all seven Harry Potter books before my trip last week. And even though I've read them all many times over before, I still cried at all the parts that made me cry that very first time.
I confess that when I lose my patience with Hunley (every. single. solitary. day) I worry that means I'll be a snippy and impatient mom one day. 

I confess I have a list of baby names on my phone (no, I'm not pregnant) and T.J. discovered it and proceeded to ask me "what kind of a name is El-oyce??" a.k.a Eloise a.k.a that name is no longer on the list.

I confess that I use hot chocolate as a vehicle for lots and lots of marshmallows.

I confess I absolutely love getting all dolled up, curling my hair, putting on my highest heels,  and going out for a fancy dinner in NYC, or downtown Greenville, SC. The kind that lasts for hours, and maybe begins with champagne, and usually ends with a dessert that's been perfectly torched and is utterly decadent. It's one of my very favorite treats, the perfect night out.

I confess that I also like Red Lobster and Panda Express. So sue me.

I confess that I bought and hung up a faux gold deer head from Hobby Lobby and T.J. has yet to make a comment on it which I find very odd because it's faux gold deer head....
 I confess that I miss my long hair. And I don't care that everyone thinks my shorter hair is "so cute" or makes me look more mature, or blah blah blah,  whatever! I miss my mermaid hair, dang it!

I confess I ordered a leather arm chair and ottoman for our living room and when it arrived on Friday I was so excited to bring it in the house but when we finally got it through the front door it suddenly seemed totally out of place and like too much furniture. I had a minor breakdown worrying we'd wasted our money and you can't return custom pieces (especially when the dog has already nipped at the corner) but after T.J. talked me down I was able to do a little feng shui and I think it works! Plus it's really comfy and will be something we'll have for a while.  (full living room update coming soon)
I confess that I am terrified for the month of November. T.J. is going to be on call literally every 3rd night. I'm not even sure how that will work all I know is it's not going to be fun for anyone.

I confess that I am trying to get back into a better blogging rhythm. I feel like I've lost some of my depth here and it's been reduced to weekend recaps and lists. Need to find my "voice" again.

  1. I still love baby names and we are so very done having kids that it's not even funny! I love the gold deer head by the way.

  4. I confess that the last load of laundry I always do is the sheets and pillow cases, then I can leave them in the dryer until 'next week' because I hate to fold sheets - especially king size sheets. This system works perfectly for me. I enjoyed your post and the chair does look comfy.

  6. Oh the deer head cracks me up...the fact that he hasn't commented, not the deer head. I'm a fan of the faux gold deer! Perhaps your honey is getting used to you 'slipping' decor into the home? : ) November is gonna be fine, and then there's December and I get to hug your neck in person, so carry on Mrs. M! Christmas is coming! p.s.-I love your hair this length. Tres jolie!

  7. I confess that Olive Garden is my favorite restaurant. Yes I know, everyone thinks I'm crazy. Whatever! To each their own. That's what makes us all unique right? p.s. the deer head is magical

    1. Too right. I could totally have put Olive Garden on my list too!! And I have a hard time saying no to anything that's gold, rustic, or woodland themed. I'm super excited to hang ornaments or put a Santa hat on the antlers come Christmas time.

  8. I'm going to Harry Potter World in February and have been trying to figure out when the best time would be to start re-reading the series in order to finish before we go. I'm glad I'm not the only only person who would do that :)

    1. Yes! You're gonna love it. It totally made everything super fresh in my mind and it was so fun to see it all come to life. They did such a good job with the attention to detail. I probably re-read the series once a year. It's just too good to ever put down.

  10. I confess I'm a huge Cracker Barrel fan--- like could go there more than once a week and be ok with that. O boy on short hair--- I wanted the cut so bad (to make my life easy) now its like grow hair grow! Guess grass is greener && lesson learned on that one.
