Y'all Know I Can't Stay Away

Remember to check the comments from today's earlier post for Confessional Friday submissions. I was originally going to forego blogging today, but my Tylenol Sinus seems to have kicked in and I had a spare moment to blog on my lunch break. I also remembered that I wrote a confessional list two nights ago in anticipation of Friday's crazy day at work. 

I love when I realize it's going to be a hectic week, so I pre-write my posts : )

Anywho...my confessions.

1. I confess that I “hid” someone from my newsfeed on FB after the fifteenth post about how far “dilated” she is with her baby. Yes, having and carrying a bambino is a miracle and something to celebrate with your friends. However, we (as in her FB friends) get a play-by-play of her entire OB appointment each week via FB. In graphic details. And it’s unnecessary. I don’t need to know what’s going on “down South” for anyone. And I don’t mean Mississippi, y’all.

2. I confess that I watched this video umpteen million times on Tuesday. Have you seen the Nigerian dwarf goats that hurdle each other? Matt Lauer featured this on the Today Show and with good reason. It’s awesome.

3. I confess that my ridiculous fear of balloons has not gotten any better. There was a child in Target the other night that kept squeezing this massive balloon, trying to get it to pop. I literally scurried out of the shampoo aisle to get as far away from the vicinity as I could before she succeeded.

4. I confess that my roots are a sight to behold. My hairdresser has decreased her schedule to working only two days a week and I can’t seem to get an appointment. I hate to “cheat” on her, but my locks are a hot mess as of late. Roots galore, kids.

5. I confess that I'm starting to rethink my personal opinion of Ryan Lochte. Or at least his mom. Her comments about her son's inability to have monogamous relationships because of his swimming schedule? That was poor taste, Mrs. L. Poor taste.

6.  I confess I'm obsessed with kelly green right now. I have the blazer below and plan to wear the heck out of it this fall. K.green is such a trendy color for this upcoming season and some old wives' tales indicate that peeps used to wear it back in the day because it brought money and luck. Dollah dollah bill, y'all. 

Get it for not very many dollars here.
And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this tunic!

7. I sadly confess that I cannot wait to watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which is the TLC reality show about this trainwreck of a toddler. She drinks a combo of Mountain Dew and Red Bull before her pageants; a concoction that she aptly named "go-go juice". I wish I could say I'm above this trashy TV, but I'm not. 

Watch a sneak peek of this haute mess, here.

I'm about to grab some "go-go" juice and go-go back to la officina

Be blessed, lovelies- 


  1. The article about Ryan Lochte's mom's comment was pretty funny. I realllly hope she meant "dates"! I love your blog.. I love that you're from Arkansas too :)

  2. Loving the kelly green! I need to get that color in my closet asap. I think it compliments red heads well :)

    As far as Honey BooBoo child, I am OBSESSED as well! I could not change the channel when I saw her on Toddlers in Tiaras. I am glad there are others out there not afraid to share their enjoyment of her!

    Hope you get to feeling better doll!

  3. Funny I just did a post today too about Honey Boo Boo child...or whatever its called!

  4. Not a Lochte fan of him or his mom and I can't wait for Honey Boo Boo Child!!

  5. CAN'T WAIT to see Honey Boo Boo. That is my kind of TV!

  6. I'm actually glad to say I will not be watching Mrs Honey Boo Boo which is a miracle because I normally get sucked into all kinds of things against my will. I just think her and her family will drive me nuts!! I'll wait for your re cap post!! Way to be totally organized and prepared with this post. I confess that I want to write a confessions post and although I know there is plenty of material I draw a blank. Glad you are feeling better.

  8. Oh my goodness. #7 makes me laugh. My husband and I have been seeing the commercials for that show and I keep calling him honey boo boo, which of course makes him roll his eyes. :-)


  9. I am totally ashamed to say that Honey Boo Boo does not live far from me at all. We are all not like she and her family. I probably won't watch it, just because I deal with so much stupid on a daily basis that I can't believe someone is getting paid to brag about their stupidity.

  10. Michaelanne, trust me I know the south isn't made up of honey boo boos. ;-) I used to live in Memphis and Knoxville, where I loved the southern hospitality and sweet tea. I think there are plenty of families like honey boo boo's all over the place, not just the south. I think she's pretty darn cute myself. I love when children have bigger than life personalities!

  11. Ohhhhh my. Honey Boo Boo??? Really?!? How did I not know about this?! Must watch. Sounds like a mini train wreck.

  12. i would have hid her from my fb news feed, too... i hate it when people post all of that creepy baby gaga crap. and no one wants to know how far you've dialated.

  13. love your "down south" comment! Too funny. I get sick of that stuff too!

    Holla for a dolla honey boo boo child! I'll be watching with you!

  14. I seriously went from office to office making my co-workers watch the goat video - then proceeded to make all my friends watch it! Seriously made my week - that video!

  15. Funny I just did a post today too about Honey Boo Boo child...or whatever its called!
