Confessional Friday: {Link Up}

Woooooo, girls! It's Friday! Are y'all as happy as I am to be staring this weekend in the face?

Let's get to it, mmmmm'kay?

1. I confess that, surprisingly, I've been filled with this amazing sense of calm as we cross the 36 week threshold of this pregnancy. I figured I'd turn into an anxiety-filled basket case when we reached the ninth month, but I don't think I've felt this at peace throughout the entire pregnancy. This is a good thing for this tightly wound, Type A, control freak.

2. I confess that I'm ready to BURN these maternity pants. I feel like I'm forced to wear the same four outfits every. stinking. day. because I'm out of options. Options. Ask any very pregnant lady what that word means and she'll probably look at you like you're a crazy person.

3. I confess that I wish to high heavens that I lived closer to y'all, my blog friends. I mean, we exchange emails and tweets and I'm all, "Gaw! Why can't we live close enough to get coffee and see a chick flick?!"

4. I confess that, despite my attempts to block the image of these precious shoes out of my brain, I will probably purchase them. Today. I mean, for only $59? And patent leather? Goof...

A little birdie (okay, a splash banner on their website's homepage) told me that if you sign up on Sole Society, you get 20% off your first purchase. This is NOT the reason I signed up last night. Not at all...

5. I confess that there is no greater pleasure in life than a bowl of Velveeta-based dip and mound of chips sitting in your lap while college football blares on the TV in front of you. I plan to recreate this very scenario tomorrow afternoon during the Arkansas vs. Rutgers game.

6. I confess that I really liked Sleepy Hollow, which debuted on Fox this week. Of course the English major in me loves the original Washington Irving short story, (first documented on...paper!!), but I thought this modern interpretation was pretty clever. Just in time for Halloween!

7. I confess that I will be getting a mani/pedi while sipping a Pumpkin Spice Latte tomorrow morning because my dear, sweet husband gifted me with a spa day for our anniversary.

Now it's your turn!


  1. Oh, sweet girl - you are SO right. By the 9th month of pregnancy, options is a word that no longer exists in the pregnant woman's vocabulary. Just a couple more weeks to go though, and then you'll have Caroline in your arms and a closet full of your normal clothing to look forward to! I couldn't wait to pack up all my maternity clothing - did it three days after coming home from the hospital because I just couldn't bare to look at it anymore, lol!

    If we lived a bit closer, I would happily take you up on a coffee and chick flick date! Enjoy your spa day! Happy Friday:)

  2. We are into Sleepy Hollow too! I was a bit hesitant, but really enjoyed it!

  3. I'm usually not into ankle straps, but those shoes are gorgeous! I Haven't seen Sleepy Hollow yet but it's on my DVR! Happy weekend!

  4. I totally remember driving to meet friends for dinner and making the hubs stop at gap so I could get a new shirt. Nothing fit and the only 3 shirts I had left I wore ALL the time. It was one of those moments, but I totally get it.

  5. So glad I found your blog through Jessica at The Newly. Congrats on your upcoming baby girl! My daughter was born back in May. It's such a wonderful time!

    I completely understand about the maternity clothes. I owned two pairs of maternity jeans and two pairs of dress pants. The thought of those things make me cringe today! I seriously gave them to the first pregnant person I saw after having Harper! The thought of them taking up room in my closet made me sick haha

  6. I wish we lived closer, so we could grab a coffee, see a movie, let the doxies play...or...STALK THE DUGGARS!! :) Hope you have a fabulous weekend! Congrats on being in the home stretch of your pregnancy!!

  7. I really loved Sleepy Hollow too!! I was just able to watch the pilot last night and it was so good! I'm itching for next week's episode already!!! Please let me know if you're ever in Little Rock, we'll go see that chick flick!! :)

  8. Those shoes! LOVE!

    Oh yes, love... I feel like a crazy when I'm talking to people I know about blog friends because they totally don't get how connected you can become to someone you've never met. But this little community is so much fun, and I totally agree that it would be so much fun if all of my blog friends were real life friends.:)

  9. Enjoy your spa appointment :) woot! That sounds like perfection.

  10. I also love the shoes. Patent leather is so timeless.

  11. A PSL and a mani/pedi?! Sounds like heaven to me!! Those shoes are SO. CUTE! Love them!

  12. Wanted to share this look alike but flat version (tiny heel) of the shoes you posted.



What'cha got?
