Confessional Friday

Thank the good Lord that Leslie hosts this great link-up or else I might never talk to you guys.
Life. And all your random fly-balls.
// I confess that we are leaving next Wednesday for Miami and Key West. But when I say we are leaving next Wednesday I mean that's the day we thought we were going to leave until the guy that has one of the boats told us that the boat won't be ready to be picked up till Monday. But he told us last week it would be ready this Saturday. So now all our plans for a smooth, non-chaotic departure are GONE. Which basically means I'm going to be a huge ball of stress until we finally do leave... whenever that is.

// I confess that we are going to be gone for TWO WEEKS. Who in the hell leaves their house/family/pets for two weeks!? Me. Why me? Because my boyfriend likes to rip all forms of stability out from underneath me and lock me in a car for long road trips to FL. Oh well. At least our hotel for most of the trip is a 72' Hatteras.

// I confess that I didn't decorate for Halloween and I'm not sad about it. It has been very warm here in SW Missouri for the last few weeks (until yesterday) and I just would not accept that it is "fall". I don't want to wear boots and jeans. I want to wear flip flops and shorts! Good thing I'm going to FL next week!

// I confess that I think the new season of Kendra On Top is all fake. I just find it very odd that they were not in the tabloids for a few years for anything and then BAM, Hank cheats on Kendra with a transgender while she's 8 months pregnant and it's all caught on camera? Uhhh no.

And that's all for today, folks. I will just leave you with this picture of me jumping in a muddy puddle.
Happy Friday!

Confessional Friday

Happy Friday, Ladies! It's been a little while but no worries, nothing exciting happening around here.
So let's confess!

// I confess that I started a new small business! Better Than Bags Gift Wrapping Service. I love wrapping gifts and have been told by numerous people I should offer my service to the community... so I did! I would love any feedback or advice on anything on my website or my Facebook page.
Oh and I forgot to mention I have one employee already! He's not much help as of right now but he's very cute.

// I confess that I went to KC last weekend for my friend Justine's baby shower and found out Ikea was open. I might have went a bit overboard but in all fairness I found a few items that I have been trying to track down for a few months-- a cube system for our entry way and a vanity mirror that is tall enough for this giraffe. Now I can finally do a vanity tour!

// And lastly I confess that we leave for Miami and Key West in less than two weeks and I am excited to get away but sad to leave the kitties behind. Oh the animal lover in me will never cease.

Confessional Friday

Howdy friends! It's Confessional Friday. What better way to catch up with you? Here we go!

// I confess that I finally found a replacement for a bracelet I lost about four years ago. I lost it one night at the lake and I was completely sick about it. My mom had given it to me and I wore it all the time. I had never seen anything like it until last Wednesday. I went to Tyson's doctors appointment with him and one of the ladies that worked there had a necklace on that reminded me of my bracelet. I asked her where she got it and she said Dress Barn. She didn't say when she got it and I didn't ask if they had matching bracelets but GUESS WHAT!? They did!! Some day I will have a jeweler copy this in silver, just like my moms. But this will hold me over til then.
When I told my mom I had found a similar bracelet, I asked her where she got it (since I never really knew). She said my dad had given it to her a few days after their first date. He went to Columbia for a doctors appointment and went in to Dillard's. They were having a fundraiser where some of the profits from certain jewelry pieces went to breast cancer research as it was October and breast cancer awareness month. She said it was 1994. What a coincidence! The doctors appointments, the month (almost to the day) and it being almost exactly 20 years later that I found this bracelet. I don't really believe in coincidences. I believe God speaks to us in ways that make us think. This is a perfect example of that.

// I also confess that I did really good this week and only bought three pairs of shoes.
I really dislike ordering shoes online that I've never tried on. I hope the sizes I got work!

// I confess that I really want to dress up like an evil bride or a modern bride of Frankenstein this year. Mostly I just want to rock this hair and makeup and most of all EYES!
I think this looks so pretty/creepy. But those contacts that make your whole eye black are $160 dollars!!

// I confess that I am just now, today, officially, getting in to the fall spirit. I just could not accept that it was fall with our blistering 80 degree Southern Missouri days. Today though--- today it's cold. Like 55 degrees cold and I have pants on cold. Cold like I wore a Carhart today. It's going to be a long winter...

And those are my confessions...
Have a great weekend!
