Friday Confessional


I confess that I spend a lot of time adding things to my Etsy cart... and then removing most of them.

I confess that I get up extra early during weekdays so I can have almost an hour of peace & quiet before the day begins.  I should take this time to shower, dressed, etc... but it's my "me" time!

I confess that I'm totally eyeing a pair of Toms on Ebay right now.  The exact pair I would order from the site, I can get for $20 cheaper on Ebay.  "With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. ONE FOR ONE."  C'mon, how could I NOT buy a pair?!

I confess that I will probably buy something at Bootlegger tonight JUST BECAUSE I have a coupon for 25% off!
I confess that the sight of my son's dimples takes my breath away.  It's hard to believe we created such beautiful little beings!

I confess that I do not want to share my Barbies with Ruby.  I have an old suitcase full of broken old Barbie pieces and doll clothes that I need to sort through... but even once I do, I'm not sure I'm really ready to part with them yet.  She has her own Barbies.

I confess that I wish I had more in common with my little brother.  I feel sad that he's the only boy in the family.  My sister and I are so close that I wish he was able to have that same kind of bond with a sibling.  I love him, but we're sooooo different.  Night and day.  If you know me and my brother, you'll know what I'm talking about.

I confess that I really enjoy blogging even though I don't have many followers.  I confess I wish I knew how to lure more people in... but at the same time, it's a nice "keepsake" and I always enjoy going back and reading previous posts.

I confess that I'm actually excited about getting a new (to us) minivan next month.  It's old, and it's beige... but it'll be ours.  And we'll have so much room for all our junk  kids stuff!  Hopefully the deal works out and I'll be cruising in my wagon in no time!

  1. I feel the same way about wishing I had more followers on my blog...but I have no idea how to "pimp it out" without looking lame! haha! It's so much fun to go back through the years and read past posts. I haven't kept a journal since I was a kid, so I'm so glad I have the blog now to look back on! :)

  2. Now you can feel empowered. You have WAY more followers than me. I have 3. Aw well. I'll become a follower for you.

  3. Jill - your blog is HILARIOUS! I love reading it. If I could pimp it out for you, I would... but I don't have many followers... it's a vicious circle! haha
    ducknme - I'll follow you too! Now you're up to 4!

  4. I can't wait to get a used minivan too. We can't all fit in his car.

    Enjoy your weekend!!! I'm off to read more of your posties!

  5. Commenting, commenting, commenting on other posts and joining fun linky parties is how I grew my blog following. It takes time, but you get to meet lots of cool people. This is the advice I was given when I started.

  6. I follow Lena and even though I might not comment all the time, i try to cuz it makes me sad when I go into my blog and see no comments!

  7. I also add items to every shopping cart on a lot of shopping sites and end up removing them because lets face it, I'm not going to buy all that stuff!! I love shopping and online shopping.

    You know you're a mom when you are excited about a minivan.....I too wish I had one!! Check out my friday confessional last week because I have this Swagger wagon Video on it that reminds me of the above...LOL

  8. Hee, hee it's nice to know that I am not the only Etsy addict who dreams big before reality hits! Your confession is fun!

    I am visiting from Mamarazzi's blog.
