Confessions – 12th ed.

It’s been a minute so I think I’m due for a public admission of my sins and other shit.

New to my shenanigans? I like to confess my things on my blog. It makes me feel ever so slightly lighter and it’s swimsuit season y’all, so any little bit helps. What are your confessions?

  • As much as I hate people, I miss working in the office. And I miss looking forward to coming home.
  • The vanilla cone is back at McDonald’s! GO! RUN! Get one, ten, now! I’ve honest to Google, never been happier. I’ve had a few…
  • Yellow makes me happy. So happy. It’s my spirit color.
  • I think White Claws are trash. Yeah I said what I said and I’m not sorry!!!
  • Right now, I’m winging this thing they call life and it scares the shit out of me. I’m a planner person and the fact that I can’t clearly see in front of me makes me nervous.
  • There are only two things I physically like about myself: my hair (it’s fabulous) and my eyes. That’s it. Self love is clearly something I need to work on…
  • I have created a lot of playlists on Spotify. Most recently I started a Country one. I KNOW. This was shocking to me too. I’m still processing. But my niece would probably be very pleased.
  • I absolutely love to buy underwear. Legit my favorite thing to shop for.
  • It appears that I am chronically behind on good TV. There is a lot of shit out there that I just haven’t seen/binged or only seen part of here and there. The list includes: Curb Your Enthusiasm, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Arrested Development, Archer, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia…I could go on. I know I know. I should take my 30 days of PTO and dedicate my time to rectifying this mistake.

These are my confessions.

My favorite things – November 2015

These are a few of my favorite things from November that I just had to share.

App: Spotify

UnknownI love my Spotify! I pay a small fee a month and can listen to all the music I want. AND – Spotify makes weekly mixes for me based on the music I’ve like and listen to. Also – they have new playlists for every day of the week and even by mood. I love Mood Booster Radio when I’m in a funk and Deep Focus when I’m working on a project at work.

Food: Corn Pudding 

Have you ever had corn pudding at City BBQ? It’s so frickin’ delicious. It’s like corn bread meets bread pudding but not in a gross way. This Thanksgiving I didn’t just want to make plan ol’ corn so I found this easy recipe for corn pudding on a Taste of Home. The directions were easy and the dish turned out great! Definitely going to be making it again and again throughout the winter.

Game: Mahjong

Totally retro, I know. But it’s relaxing and helps me clear my head sometimes when things are crazy. Great for a break at work or in the evening before bed. You can play online for free at the above link.

Household item: Tide Pods 

I will never do my laundry without Tide Pods. I tried them a while ago because they were a A1-gOVqi2GL._SY355_better deal than my usual liquid Tide. I did the math in the aisle at Target and figured the pods were a better bang for my buck. Then I got home and used them – LIFE CHANGING. They are so easy and I can teach my kid to do laundry now since there is no pouring involved. AND they make my clothes smell AMAZING. I will forever be doing laundry because my crew is notorious for putting anything and everything in the hamper. Pretty sure I will die in the laundry room but Tide Pods make my life easier so I love them. PS. I’ve found that the best deal for these is at SAMs Club. You get 120 pods for $24.98 (see above link).

cover170x170Music: 25 by Adele 

“Hello. Can you hear me?” I got that song stuck in your head, didn’t I? Who doesn’t love this woman? She’s amazing and her long awaited album is TO DIE FOR. If you don’t own this – go buy it now!

Store: Ollie’s Bargin Outlet 

Olliolliee’s is a better version of Big Lots – better brands, better prices. I’ve found the greatest little gifts for those random family members you have to buy for from there. And it’s all budget friendly and legit name brands. I think I’m going to go back and get teacher gifts from there too. Can’t beat a good deal!
