Confessional Friday: {Link-Up}


Bet y'all thought I had left blogging, huh? Nope, I was just off celebrating the yuletide festivities with the family in central Arkansas. Better late(ish) than never, right ladies? Gaw. This was supposed to be up at 8:00 a.m. sharp this morning, but the bed felt so good that I slept right through my alarm.

I'm off work. So, I suppose that's alright. And really, I'm not sorry.

Anywhoodle, here are some confessions from our Christmas week:

1) Apparently, I'm a gadget dork at heart. I got an iPad for Christmas from my parents! Actually, they got one for me, Stephen and my brother Matthew. And let me tell you, I am addicted already. It's one of the best techy Christmas gifts I've ever received.

2) I really did feel like a kid at Christmas this year. My parents got a TON of snow on Christmas Day, which was just amazing. It had been 86 years since Arkansas had a white Christmas. There was something magical about it that just doesn't happen most years.

3) I wish I still believed in Santa : ( Am I the only one that misses that old man with the white beard? Don't get me wrong, we had a great Christmas. There's just a special component missing and I can't help but think it might be 'ol Saint Nick.

4) I was deflated to learn that Zero Dark Thirty doesn't come to Arkansas until Jan. 11. Apparently it opened in limited release on Dec. 19, but AR is never in the "limited release" territory.

5) I am just sick over this fiscal cliff mess. No matter what side of the political fence you're on, I think we can all agree that this is scary business.

What's on your mind today?

Be blessed, lovelies-


  1. i was supposed to go to dallas this weekend but the snow has prevented me from that! boo! i guess it's better to be safe than sorry, and since it hasn't snowed on christmas in arkansas in a good minute i'm kinda okay with it. i mean i don't wanna play in it but it sure is pretty!

  2. I saw all that snow on tv- beautiful! But did you lose your power? :(

    I definitely still believe in Santa Claus. Maybe because my daughter does and we go see Santa and he comes down the chimney ;)

  3. I get pretty giddy when Santa is coming to town! I am pretty sure I feel like Buddy the Elf when he is saying he knows Santa!! HA HA I may be 30 but my parents still write "from Santa" on my packages. My parents and husband also know that the stocking is my favorite part! :)


  4. I got here searching for another blog and... I'm so happy I can't quite remember the name of the other! :-) Lovely blog. I'm glad you had nice Christmas and since New Year is approaching I wish you it's whole as fantastic and full of beautiful gifts (material and non material).

  5. I love the snow photo however I hate snow! Is that bad? I am glad you had a great time :)

  6. Oh, snow!!! That is something I miss last 2 years.
    Wishing you and your loved ones a happy new year!

  7. You crack me up! Love this :) I can't wait to experience a white Christmas one day and I'm with you on the believing in Santa thing!

    Happy New Year lovely!

  8. I miss Father Christmas too!

    I confess I am very upset that Breaking Bad Season 5 doesn't reach the UK until June 3rd 2013. My year has already been ruined!!

    Have a wonderful new year xxxx


What'cha got?
