Midweek Confessions

I have so much fun reading everybody’s confessions posts when they are up, so I thought it about time to write my own and get a few (mostly trivial) things off my chest.

So, I confess …

… that throughout the past month, I’ve taken an hour break nearly everyday to continue my binge-a-thon of Friday Night Lights on Netflix. Just one hour for one episode. I’m hooked.

… that we still haven’t unpacked every single bag or box from when we moved. In December. If I haven’t been looking for it by now, it probably means I won’t, right?

… that I’ve been in quite the Taylor Swift mood lately. Those who
know me best know that I have such a love/hate relationship with her – I
can’t stand her and think she has an average voice at best, but damn –
girl can write some lyrics.

… that I’ve been very into online shopping the past couple weeks. It’s a good thing that Ryan knows that these phases come and go; otherwise, he may have to take the credit card away from me.

… that Ryan and I have bickered more in the past month than we have in the entire seven years that we’ve been together. The culprit? The family room. We seriously could be one of those couples on the DIY Network show Renovation Realities. It’s amazing what home ownership and projects can do to a couple.

… that I’m suffering from MAJOR baby fever. It’s nowhere in the cards right now for Ryan and I, but I’m finding any excuse to shop for baby stuff for any friend or family member that’s pregnant.

Do you have any recent confessions to make?

    I have yet to do a confession post but you're making me feel like i should!

    Josh and I fight about house decisions too! It makes me not want to buy a house for a long time! haha

    I recently finished the entire series of Friday Night Lights on Netflix — so good! I admit I'd watch it all over again πŸ˜‰

    xo, Laura

    Girl, I've been binge watching old seasons of Grey's Anatomy on Netflix. I'm obviously many years to late, but the obsession is very, very real.

    Haha it does seem that way!! Her songs are good though. Being an aunt is fun. πŸ™‚ My twin sister has a 2 year-old, and my older sister has a daughter who will be 4 next month, and a 2 year old. They're getting bigger, but the clothes are still super cute. πŸ™‚

    The fact that we don't have Neflix is probably saving our relationship. If I had to be subject to whatever crap Mr. Scrooge wanted to watch, since he rarely gives up the remote, I'd probably kill him.

    That said, he doesn't say a thing about my online shopping. It's just safer that way.

    It's a little slow-moving but the drama is really juicy…so far, we're enjoying it!

  9. 3.25.15

    Netflix is ridiculously dangerous – I try to limit myself to one show at a time so I don't go too crazy. Otherwise, I'd probably never pick up a book!

  10. 3.25.15

    OMG! Girl, you're not alone – I have my CC number/info memorized as well. I consider it impressive, not shameful. Lol πŸ™‚

  11. 3.25.15

    Awe! I love your baby premonition for me, lol – so far, I've only had to buy baby boy gifts, so I'm secretly hoping that's a sign that I'm going to be the first one to have a girl among our friends and family. πŸ™‚ I soooo agree about T. Swift's latest album – it's been on repeat while I'm working. I can't even imagine having to have my packages sent to Ryan's workplace – he definitely would take the credit card away then!

  12. 3.25.15

    I know you are convinced that I'm a closet "Swiftie"! Ryan and I may bicker about all the home stuff, but at least we laugh about it later! I know you're ready to be a grandma – hopefully in the near future!

  13. 3.25.15

    Haha, THANK YOU for making me feel better about the unpacking situation. I'm pretty sure a bunch of stuff just got dropped in the basement. Oh well – out of sight, out of mind, right?!

  14. 3.25.15

    Me too! Especially lately … bless my husband's heart that he just let's me bust out "Shake It Off" in public when I feel like it. πŸ™‚

  15. 3.25.15

    I'm with you on T. Swift – at least she's worked for everything that she has! I think I just easily get annoyed with her because she's basically everywhere at all times. I don't even have any nieces/nephews to get my baby/child fix, so I think that's why my baby fever is going even stronger!

  16. 3.25.15

    I so agree with you! It seems like half the stores now don't even carry as much inventory, or they are out of my size. Online shopping definitely is the way to go.

  17. 3.25.15

    Oh lord – I can only imagine how ridiculous the online shopping is going to be whenever I'm pregnant. I mean, there is SO much baby stuff, and it's all so darn cute! I don't know how you control yourself. πŸ™‚

  18. 3.25.15

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who bickers with her husband during home projects! At least we laugh about it once we're done, but yes – it can be stressful going through it. Girl, I would LOVE to visit you and the baby once he/she arrives!

  19. 3.25.15

    I keep seeing that Bloodlines show advertised, and I always say "COACH!" when he comes on the screen, lol. Is the show any good?!

  20. 3.25.15

    Oh, I can only imagine! It's like one minute I have baby fever, and then there's a screaming child in the middle of Target and I'm snapped back to reality.

  21. 3.25.15

    LOL! Well, I guess I confess that some days it turns into two or three episodes … ha! I hear you on the baby fever – it's just not the time quite yet!

  22. 3.25.15

    You so should – it was a lot of fun to write!

  23. 3.25.15

    It was so great to get a few things off my chest! I seriously can't believe that it's taken me forever to watch FNL – I'm on the last season and curious how they are going to wrap it up … and Tim Riggins better get out of jail because, well, I love him. πŸ™‚ I'm looking forward to the family room and the bickering getting done!

  24. 3.25.15

    Haha, I seriously was thinking of you when I was writing my T. Swift confession. At least you should be happy to hear that I can't stop listening to her lately! πŸ™‚ I'm glad Ryan and I can laugh about our bickering once it's over – it's just a bit stressful going through it!

  25. 3.25.15

    Netflix is so dangerous sometimes- I'm in the middle of a million shows but somehow keep starting to rewatch old favorites at the same time. I definitely sometimes hope I can intercept an online purchase before my husband gets home, haha.

    Love all of these confessions! I especially relate to the online shopping problem. Mine comes in waves too, thank goodness, or I'd be in the same boat. (It's so bad, that I know my credit card number/information by heart). Hanging my head in shame…lol

  27. 3.25.15

    These are all fantastic! I secretly love hearing you have baby fever…..I am envisioning lots of pretty headbands and bows πŸ˜‰
    She can't sing but I'll tell you what that new album of hers I can play all the way through and then start it right back over. So good! Girl since I moved I have to have all my packages sent to Marks office…..THE WORST! You should see the side eyes I get when he bring home yet another F21 or Target box πŸ™‚

    This was a good post today – doesn't it feel to good to share? Thank god for online shopping, otherwise I wouldn't own any shoes! As for T Swift, you know you love her – haha! Bickering and marriage go hand in hand, especially during home remodeling projects. I, too, am suffering from baby fever – I'm ready to be a grandma whenever!

    I love binge watching old tv shows; it’s the best and SO addicting! Who needs to
    unpack right away?! It took us forever, I’m pretty sure a few boxes just got crammed into our back storage room. Online shopping is the best ever – I just hate crowds and my couch is so much more comfortable then running around a mall. So agree with the baby fever – I’m so in love with all the babes but not quite the time for us yet!

  30. 3.25.15

    Haha I agree with you on Taylor Swift. Her songs are just so catchy and I find myself singing them all the time!

  31. 3.25.15

    Love this post!! I like Taylor Swift, but it's hard to figure out what her real personality is. I have 3 nieces so I'm good in the baby dept. Love all of the cute tiny clothes and stuff though. I'm sure that the family room will turn out great and that both of you will love it. πŸ™‚

    I pretty much so all of my shopping online now. You can always find a better deal and pretty much everyone offers free shipping!

  33. 3.25.15

    Bahaha these are cracking me up!! Definitely have the same thoughts about online shopping and with the baby stuff it's been out of control lately!! And totally agree about T Swift – average voice, awesome lyrics. πŸ™‚ Love this post girl!

  34. 3.25.15

    Love this! Love Friday Night Lights, such a good show, I'm bummed I'm done with it! I hear you on the home reno's, my husband and I are the same way. . it's usually not pretty, it can be some stressful stuff. And you can come visit this baby of mine anytime you desire!!

    The Sequin Notebook said:

    Friday Night Lights is totally addicting!!! T and I are watching Bloodlines on Netflix now to get our Coach Taylor fix, and we're thinking about doing a full FNL re-watch when we're finished just because we love it so much!

    Confession posts are so fun, right?!?!? I love me some FNL…Coach and Tammy Taylor forever!!! I know it's stressful figuring out the living room, but like Pamela says, it will pass. And you will love the outcome.

    That card is the best, haha. Baby fever is great when you can give the baby back ;)!

    Pamela said:

    Hahaha love the baby some-ecard! It's hard not to get baby fever when it seems like everyone is having one lately! And don't worry, the bickering over the living room will pass. Crazy how little things like that can make you argue, huh? Aww I love Taylor… but you already knew that haha! I think most people have a love/hate relationship with her.
