Friday Confessional

The Juice is Worth the Squeeze

I have a problem with buying things I HAVE.TO.HAVE only to use them for 2 weeks or less.  If I had a dime for every hair product or beauty item collecting dust under my sink I'd be a rich woman.

I can't do my {ahem} "business" in a public bathroom unless I'm the only one in there.  What can I say, a girl needs a little privacy in life.

I don't really understand people who monogram everything.  Especially kids clothes.  I get that personalization is cute.  I'm guilty of buying Jamie a shirt or two for holidays or birthdays.  But just to wear on some run of the mill Tuesday?  Eh.  Not my thing.  Don't even get me started on smocking and jon-jons.

One morning I discovered our bathroom had no more TP.  Instead of getting a new roll, I just went to the other bathroom.

The dog puked on the floor yesterday.  I pretended not to see it so the husband would clean it up when he got home.  Lazy?  Yes.  I call it payback for giving me this wretched cold he claimed was allergies.

I found {and pulled} five gray hairs.  Five.  If that old wives tale is true I will have about 15 in a few weeks.  Joy.

My child has finally figured out how to open his door.  Instead of celebrating his new found skill I'm contemplating running to Target to buy a childproof knob cover.  Screw independence, I can't have him roaming the house at all hours of the night.

I'm the girl who pins her own stuff to keep my recipes all in one place.  Yep, that's me.  One step below the person who likes their own pictures on Instagram.

I just got an email from my boss that I have to move desks.  TODAY.  So I can sit at temporary desk with no phone and no computer for a week only to move AGAIN the following week.  The tantrum I'm about to throw would rival my 2 year olds any day.

Happy freakin' Friday people.
Link up and share your confessions!

bahaha - I SO don't get the whole monogrammed seersucker smock thing! It hasn't really taken off in Canada like it has on some of the blogs I follow and I'm forever thankful.
I pin my own stuff on Pinterest but not for your valid reason; I'm hoping that something will go viral and Martha Stewart will offer me a place on her team... dream big ;)

The smocked clothes and jon jons are not my thing either. Too much. And I don't spend a lot of money on Mia's clothes when they have the potential to get ruined in 5.4 seconds. Only special occasions - birthday, Xmas, etc.

Happy Weekend (almost!)

OMG Yes on the monogramming everything for kids. I don't get it! Do I need to be reminded constantly of his name or monogram? I think Hunter has maybe 4 things with his name on it and he's outgrown them all. I would like to be able to either use his clothes again if we have another boy or sell/give them away and you can't do that if every piece is personalized. However, he will have a personalized shirt for his birthday :)

Shannon said...

Oh yeah and the smocked clothing only looks cute on girls in my opinion. If I tried to dress Hunter in one of those outfits Kristian would immediately make me change his clothes.

Melissa said...

Haha I could have written the majority of these confessions!

I buy stuff on impulse all the time. I'm working on it, but it's hard!

I'm the same with the bathroom.

The monogramming is a little silly to me. I got Landon a personalized shirt for his bday party and I will continue to do that, but otherwise I don't bother. Mainly because I wouldn't be able to use it for the next baby if we were to have another boy. I don't think we will have another "L" name baby, so even initials wouldn't work. Smocking on girls is kind of cute, but the Jon-Jons kill me. NO ONE puts their boys in those, the Peter Pan collars, or the knee socks around here. I think it's more of a Southern thing.

I've ignored cat vomit and pretend I never saw it when my husband comments on it. I'll be like "Oh gross. Since you saw it first you better clean it up!" Now we both pretend it's not there, but I do wind up cleaning it.

I will be running to Target for childproof knob covers the second Landon figures out how to work the door knobs.

My poor neglected kids, who don't own a damn thing monogrammed and never will. Ok, Em's 2 year old shirt said her name on it for Disney--but my husband made it (he used to manage an embroidery shop). But yea. I don't get it either. I mean, SO!CUTE! but Ummm...yea, on a random tuesday? We are wearing a $2 dora shirt that has strawberry stains on it. Truth.

Gina said...

G has one monogrammed shirt (that he wore for his birthday) that he got for free. I don't get the smocking or the jon-jons either. And? I send him to school in crap clothes because I know he's going to come home covered in paint and food and well, we wear play clothes whether we go to school or not. Who am I kidding?

Sarah [] said...

I often do the "I didn't see that" trick because I KNOW my husband does it to me on a daily basis!

jennifer said...

Girl these are hilarious and awesome confessions -- seriously what is with the jon-jons? Totally have done the TP thing before. And regarding childproof doorknob covers -- we definitely turned our doorknob itself so the lock is on the outside instead of the inside!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

I never understand splashing your name or initials on everything!

Stephanie said...

LOL My confession...I have so pretended not to see the dog puke on the floor! Hilarious and fabulous to know I am not the only one:)

The Friendly Skies said...

These are funny... and yes i know I am late. :)

Guess I have a lot of mom talk to learn because I have no clue what jon jons are and I had no idea monogrammed shirts were the thing. haha

dave and jenn said...

I can't stand smoking and jon-jons. And I thought I was the only one! Whew, what a relief that I'm not alone...

I often conveniently overlook dog poop in the house so Dave has to clean it up. I figure if I'm cleaning up baby poop, it's an even trade.

this made me laugh out loud when i read it on my phone so i had to come back.

we'll have to agree to disagree on the smocking and jonjons. i freaking think it's adorable! although my husband is more on your side with the jonjons. he'll give me to age one. i'm working on til age two. past that? even i'm not a fan.

and yea.. we have some monogrammed things but they are for certain occasions. on a random tuesday, i'm lucky if my kid wears more than underwear.

last week i saw cat vomit the minute i got up. totally ignored it til the hubs saw it and was all like "oh my gosh!" ;)
