Confessional Friday: {Link-Up}

Hi girls! Hope all of you are having a fabtabulous Friday thus far! Confessional Friday is back today - woot woot! Took a little break last week, but I'm back and ready to help you all confess your deepest and darkest.

...but not really. Let's keep it light and fun, m'kay?

1. I confess that I cannot believe how much I'm liking darker lipstick right now. I've always been a gloss girl, but now....oh, I'm loving some lipstick!

2. I'm still grappling with understanding this SOPA thing. I honestly didn't know what the heck was going on yesterday. Alls I know (yeah, I said 'alls') is that I opened Google and 'poof'!'- big black tape graphic over the logo. Just give me my interwebs, that's all I ask Congress.

3.  I'm not loving this mild weather we're having in JANUARY. Come on, Mother Nature! We Arkansans live in sweltering heat and humidity nine months out of the year....the least you could do is to give us a couple months of chilly weather and snow!

4. I can finally announce that I will now be working from home! I recently accepted a position that will allow me to office out of our house...woot woot! I hope to tell you guys more details next week, but I'm so excited about this new opportunity : ) Starting Monday, I will have a MUCH shorter commute to the office...10 steps, haha! The rest of my team is based out of Little Rock, so there will be the occasional trip for meetings, but other than that, I get to enjoy working from home. So thrilled!

5. Do to aforementioned position, I will be attending the Walton College of Business Hall of Fame Induction banquet. Our company is a sponsor. I confess, I'm torn between a long dress and a short dress. What do y'all think? Any of the below you like?

Be blessed, lovelies-


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE the short sparkly dress top right. Wish I had a reason to buy it! You will look fabulous in whatever you wear.

    I'm with you on SOPA! No idea what's going on...is it a trend?!!? At least our generation is doing something right?!!?

    Congrats on the telecommute! That is FABULOUS! Totally jealous! GO YOU!

    Happy weekend!


  2. Leslie - I didn't get the SOPA/PIPA thing either. And I am sure I'm not explaining it right, but as it was explained to me - Congress is trying to gain control to "govern" the Internet. So any website, even yours that has comments and pictures, etc, can be shut down by them. They can censor anything they choose, and apparently it's pretty vague. I believe the point of it is to stop the pirating of movies and music, but I guess people don't believe that's where it would stop. This is not totally appropriate... but kind of an easy overview: http://theoatmeal.com/sopa
    Many sites blacked themselves out yesterday in protest of the bill, hence the "censored" Google, no Wikipedia, etc. Hope that helps... and makes sense!

    PS Short! I love the short dresses!

  3. Loving the sparkly dresses but that animal print is pretty amazing too! My first confession is this: I posted my confessional post last week and didn't know you were taking the week off so that bad boy is linking up today! Oops! Oh yea and I'm loving darker lips right now too! oh and one more thing (promise) so jealous of your work at home gig! My mom has done the same for years and loves it. Something tells me that my career as a teacher would be slightly less successful out of my house :(

  4. That last dress....I die. Beautiful.

  5. I love the sparkly dress! I can't wait to see what you choose to wear!


  6. i have totally been on a lip color kick lately. i love a bold lip much more than a glossy one these days.

    check on the clinique chubby sticks. i have 3...that's how dang fantastic they are!

  7. Confession: the sparkly Sherri Hill is AMAZING.

    PS, now that everything has finally calmed down (oh, and you've married someone I went to junior high school with, hahahaa), wanna get that martini? DUH, you do!

  8. I love those dresses, but I think they're more New Years Eve and less (a lot less) suited to a business dinner. I think you need something classic, sophisticated and elegant! What about some of these:




  9. Working from home, so fun!!! Congrats I can't wait to hear details!!! ox

  10. Yea to working at home! I also love the dresses you posted can't wait until I can actually fit into something like that (I'm preggo). Heidi

    Ps. I tagged you in my post today!

  11. OMG I die for that sparkly dress!!!!!!!!! eeeekk!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. I was wondering why google looked like that!!

    LOVE all those dress!! GORG! & LOVE your lipstick!! Who is the maker and what color is it?

    and CONGRATS on your new job! Can't wait to read your post about it!! :)

  13. Lucky duck!! Work from home. I wish. Congrats. Have a good weekend. Oh, I'm a gloss girl too but when I go out I often go back to that one remaining tube of lipstick I still from whenever ago to add some drama.

  14. ME TOO! I start working from home in the next few weeks and I am SO EXCITED. I'm seriously considering stocking up on Gap's new workout wear as my new "Office Attire". We'll have to give eachother tips on how to make it work. I think I have my schedule figured out, but the actual office organization might be tricky. Very happy for you!

  15. Congrats on the new shorter commute!:) I am actually trying to find a job where I can work from home, my hubby is in the military and its hard to find a job especially in business where we are stationed. Let me know if you have any advice or places where I could look online. Have a great weekend! Your hair looks amazing!!

  17. Love Friday Confessions! Just linked up.:) Congratulations on your new job!! I'm so jealous! I would love to work from home.


  18. I'm totally agreeing with you about the switch from gloss to lipstick. I've found myself doing the same thing lately. Great minds think alike.

  19. I am loving lipstick right now too!! NEVER, ever, ever thought that I would. Oh and those dresses... gotta love the Sherri Hill dress. I feel like the long sleeves make it look perfect for winter... even if you are having warmer weather than normal, haha!

  20. I agree, I'm loving lipstick right now and your hair looks fabulous!!

  21. I am loving the light sparkly Sherri Hill dress!! But I am also loving the animal print dress as well! I'm torn... but can't wait to see what you end up wearing! xox
