Confessional Friday: {Link Up}

…I am in love with Bikram (hot) yoga and I don’t care who knows it! My abs are killing me…as is my derriere…and my shoulders. To put things into perspective of just how much you can expect to sweat, I weighed half a pound less when I got home last NIGHT than I did on Thursday morning before I left for work. Crazy, folks. Just crazy.

…I do not love the Superbowl. I mean, I enjoy the commercials and half-time show and all, but I can think of more enjoyable ways to spend my Sunday evening. I have to put on a happy face this year though – we’re hosting a party. Velveeta cheese dip, anyone?

…mayonnaise makes  me gag. I had this conversation with my mayonnaise-loving husband the other night, as he was in disbelief that a person couldn’t love that goopy, fat-laden spread. Blech. I can’t.

…I giggle out loud when I flip through my iPhone photos at work, and stumble on pics of little Ruby. Something about a weenie dog is just comical. Why is that?

…I just can’t get on board with the retro high-top sneakers that are de rigeur right now, BUT that doesn’t stop me from wanting a pair. Because they look ridiculously comfy. Definite man-repelling shoes, right there.

…I will never use Instagram’s shoddy photo filters again. Because I discovered AfterGlow. I would count the ways in which it kicked Insta’s behind, but we’d be here for a bit.


  1. What!! Something better than Instagram! I might have to check into this!

  2. Yep. Just purchased After Glow- officially obsessed! Thaaaanks!
    PS- Ruby... is adorable.

  3. I don't love the superbowl either. Just not a fan - despite the fact that I do like football. Guess I'm just more of a college call kind of girl. And mayo? Ew. The only way I'll eat mayo is if I don't know it's in something - like chicken salad or tuna or something. Spreading it on a slice of bread? No thanks. Anything that jiggles like that just can't be good for you! Happy Weekend!

  4. I will definitely check out the new filters you prefer, Instagram is kind of so-so fo rme as well.

    I'm definitely not into the Superbowl unless my team is playing (which they're not) so I could kind of care less lol.

    Lastly, the wedge sneakers, I'm kind of liking them and I think I could pull the trend off. I'm going to try a few pairs on and see how it goes but the jury is still out :)

    Have a great weekend xo

  5. I love this and totes had to join in. I've never done the confession linkup but it felt good to let things out. HA, even if they were superficial. Girl, preach on the sneakers and then come take all of my sisters so she can stop lookin' a hot ol' mess.

  6. Can you please do a post on how to use After Glow? I have the app but have no idea how to use it, haha! Happy Friday! :)

  7. I'm definitely going to have to check After Glow out! Love that picture of Ruby, she is so adorable!

  8. Afterglow is officially way better to filter your photos! Love it!!

  9. Thanks for hosting, as always! :)

    I need to check out Afterglow STAT. Thanks Leslie!

  10. I saw a lot of those platform tennis shoes in Europe. I LOVE 'em because I love comfort. I'm not sure how cute they are...it's kinda the same things with Uggs for me. I'm looking to the food more then the actual super bowl also!!!

  11. I need to investigate afterglow.

    I saw someone in those sneakers yesterday. They looked ridiculous.

  12. I'll be purchasing After Glow soon! Hopefully it doesn't add to my ridiculous Instagram obsession.


What'cha got?
