Friday Confessional

The Juice is Worth the Squeeze
<div align="center"><a href="" title="The Juice is Worth the Squeeze" target="_blank"><img src="" alt="The Juice is Worth the Squeeze" style="border:none;" /></a></div>

Last week I took Jamie to the park and he had a nonstop runny nose.  I hadn't planned on this and therefore brought nothing.  So I used my shirt.

I'm tempted to buy crappy Halloween candy to pass out so there's not some bag of chocolaty goodness sitting around my house saying "EAT ME!"

I hate the store Forever 21.  I've tried to like it.  I see so many other people find cute stuff there, but each time I walk in it's like a clusterf*ck of disorganized racks.  I can't take it.  It was also a bit of turn off when my size TWO, skinny as a freakin rail, sorority sister had to buy a size large.  I pretty much wrote them off that day.

I love Wilson Phillips.  As in the band.  You better believe anytime I'm in the car and "Hold On" comes on the radio, I'm gonna crank that shit and sing my heart out.

While I really appreciate that my husband is trying to teach our son some independence, I could have done without the new 10 minute process he's created by letting him get into his carseat "ALL BY MYSELF."  Sometime it really was easier when he was a helpless baby.

I think TVs hanging on the wall are the worst home design feature ever.  Especially over a fireplace.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not tying to hide the fact that we own a TV, but I'm not going to prominently hang it on my wall so it's the focal point of the room.  The only exception to this is in a basement or man den.

I love me some pumpkin, but I think Pinterest has created a pumpkin explosion.  I get it.  It's fall, people like it.  But not EVERYTHING I make in the next 3 months requires a can of the orange stuff.  I'm sorry.  I draw the line at pumpkin chili.  Gross.

I can't whistle.  Or wink.

Sometimes when I'm on Facebook and see that some skinny bitch I went to highschool with is fat now, I smile.

Ok.  Every time.

Anything you need to get off your chest this week?

Happy Friday friends!

Totally agree about the TV over the fireplace. Makes me cringe every time. Totally DISAGREE about pumpkin chili. Started making it last year and it's FABULOUS! Although strangely, you really can't taste the pumpkin at all. I throw it in for the extra creaminess/fiber/Vitamin A. So try it, maybe. ;)

Bwahhaha. The snot/sleeve fiasco is all about survival!!
Also, please know I have an interpretive dance to Hold On, that only makes appearances after extreme drinking or when I am in my car alone.

Shannon said...

Agree about the tv over the fireplace, we put ours in the corner. Oh and I can't whistle either.

Ashley said...

You never would believe you would be using your shirt for snot or using your hands to catch spit up, wipe slobber with your hand and wipe it on yourself until you're a mom. Somehow it's acceptable when it's your child otherwise it's disgusting. haha.

The other confession about skinny girls from school - there is a girl I used to be jealous of. I wanted to look like her, thin and beautiful. Now, she has butch hair and has gained a ton of weight. She looks downright awful and every time she posts a picture of herself thinking she still looks juts as hot I cringe and am thankful I look nothing like her. :)

Jamie said...

Forever 21...bleck! They have a "plus size line" now that makes me want to scream. a) I'm smart enough to know that my fat ass should not wear skinny jeans...stop selling them to people my size and b) why is everything so fugly? I'm thankful that they sell "hip" clothes in my size but Forever 21+ is just too much!
And the confession about seeing HS classmates on me!
Thanks for the laughs :)

Melissa said...

Forever 21 is always disorganized and I rarely find anything good there. I think if you're tall and curvy like me you're not going to have luck there. I do like their leggings though.

I love me some pumpkin, but pumpkin chili sounds nasty.

I always get amused when someone I went to high school with who was a jerk to me is fat and/or not as successful as they thought they would be. I know how mean that sounds, but it is what it is.

dyyying over the girls in hs comment...dying....

Ashley said...

HAAA! I love these. I have used my shirt as a tissue for my kid MANY times. However our tv is over our fireplace. In my defense, there is a huge cutout over the fireplace and we have no choice. :)

dave and jenn said...

Haha - I use my shirt (or pajamas or cardigan or whatever) for Jade's runny nose all the time. No shame!

I also buy crappy Halloween candy. It works. I don't eat it. :)

Kristen said...

I did the sleeve as a Kleenex trick last week too! Being a Mom is really glamorous sometimes ;-)

I am guilty of the tv over the fireplace..

Elle Sees said...

my best advice for creating Independence: giving kids choices instead of decisions. i swear it works and no "terrible twos."
and the wiping the nose thing-lol that's how you know you're a mom! he's such a cutie!!

I went into Forever 21 last week because there was a dress in the window. I tried it on and it was a large and was tight. I had to leave immediately and realized they make things for girls a size 2 not 10.

Hilary Lane said...

I do the same thing with Halloween candy!

Our F21 sounds just like yours. I am so glad when I go with my husband to Michigan, or NYC or even Charleston, because their stores are bigger and ORGANIZED. Ours is definitely a cluster--ck as well!
