Confessional Friday: {Link Up}

'Ello, friends! It's almost the weekend and we're confessing. Let's get right to it, shall we?

1. I confess that your comments and emails following the "Worry" post had me nearly in tears. Say what you will about blogging, but I love that we're all part of such an amazing and supportive network of women. Women that build each other up with encouraging words and uplifting thoughts.Thank you all for your sweet, sweet words. It's nice to know that I'm not the only worry-wart ; )

2. I confess that I gained a pound this week...woohoo! Trying like the dickens to get back up to pre-pregnancy weight. It's not much, but hey Jack, I'll take it!

3. I confess that I'm still waiting for that "pregnancy glow" I'm supposed to be blessed with right now, ha! In my opinion, I just look...well...a lovely shade of pea green. Perhaps I'll glow a bit more once this nausea eases up : ) Until then, I think it's bunch of hogwash.

4. I confess that I haven't had my hair highlighted since before Christmas...and I'm not due for another until April 24th - yikes! My hair girl retired last month, so I've been trying like a mad woman to find another stylist. I found one that came highly recommended, but I couldn't get in until the end of the month. Y'all should see my crazy hair in person. I've got quite the (unintentional) ombre look going on right now.

5. I confess that I was MORTIFIED when I ran into a sweet blog reader in Target last weekend. Not because I don't like meeting friends in the blogging community, but because I was wearing: 1) Not a stitch of make-up, so it's a miracle she recognized me in the first place; 2) A pair of 10-year old sweatpants and an old Phish t-shirt, (yes, I loved me some Phish...judge away); 3) A hot mess of a bun on top of my head, comprised of hair that hadn't been washed in a sweet forever. I kept apologizing and apologizing to this sweet girl for my horrific appearance. So embarrassing!

6. I confess that events like the above always, always seem to happen when I look like I've crawled out of a gutter. Why is it that every time you think, "I'll just make a quick trip to Target. Surely I won't run into anyone I know today", that you inevitably see the entire dadgum population?

7. I confess that y'all rock my socks off. Really. You're kind of awesome. Just so you know.

Alright, give it to me straight. What's going on in your world this week?

P.S.- Since I seem to have a hard time getting this link up posted at a decent time each Friday, I'm going to try, (try being the operative word), to post on Thursday nights. Because, hey, it just seems like the responsible link-up hostess thing to do.


  1. #4 so me right now! I got my high lights done in Dec and then my hair stylist moved. I've yet to find another stylist, I'm in dire need! I've got the unintentional Ombre going on too

  2. Missy! My hair is an Ombre' experiment right now too! End of April Appointment too. See, we totally planned this!

    Hope you get your glow SOON!

  3. Ah! Just getting caught up here. CONGRATULATIONS on your bundle!! That is so exciting and such a blessing :)

    As for the glow, people said I had it, but I felt like a hot mess most of my pregnancy. Especially at the end when I was usually drenched in sweat! Geeeeez. Glamorous, this mommy life! Wouldn't have it any other way.

  4. #4 seems to be a common thing, I had my hair done at the end of November and desperately need to schedule in a new appointment. Thank God I have an ombre; but still, spring calls for fresh hair! As for that pregnancy glow, I am now pregnant with our second child (Yay) and spent most of my first pregnancy and all of this one (am now 3 months) sporting this fabulous liver-malfunction-yellow-grayish complexion! Glow never came unless I faked it!

  5. Think how wonderful you'll feel when you have those roots done- lord knows I have been there! Keep smiling xxx

  6. I am so happy for you, congrats on your bundle of joy!
    Have a great weekend!

  7. Your ombre confession reminded me of the ecard about how we in the south call that roots and wear a hat to cover it until we can get that fixed!

    What am I doing this weekend? Lord have mercy I have to finish cleaning my house, bake and decorate 3 dozen cupcakes, decorate, cook for and host my nephew's 2nd birthday party, read 3 chapters in my business textbook, sew a shawl, go to a formal work event, and then write a paper for my science class that I haven't even begun to research for that's due Monday. I'm pooped just thinking about it.

    Please relax a little for me and I hope your morning sickness eases up for you!
