I Must Confess - Part 3

It's been a good 3 months since I've aired my "dirty" laundry so I thought what better way to kick off the 3 day weekend than with a handful of confessions.


{ONE}
Once again, Target and I are on a break... and once again, I'm the one requesting distance. Why is it so hard for stores to carry boys 2T clothing. I'm willing to pay full price (okay, that's a lie) for C some clothes so just stock the shelves in my favor. If not, I'll take our James' hard earned money elsewhere. And Target, this is your second strike.. you know what happens when you get to 3 right?

{TWO}
Just when I thought I was coming to terms with living in the south, I realized I will never ever love Texas based on one simple fact. Fall in Texas sucks. No where in the state will you ever find views like this. Find me this in Texas and I just may be able to spend my years getting old here.

When James was putting laundry away this week, he made the comment that "if a stranger were folding your laundry, they would think you were a professional athlete". I'm fairly certain this is an insult to all athletes all over the world. But oh well. If you need me, I'll be in the black compression pants, t-shirt and sports bra. Watching Big Brother. 

{FOUR}
There are a handful of people in my circle that I know has their phone without arms reach 24/7 so when I call them and they don't answer and or don't call me back at all, it makes me want to deliver a good old punch straight to their throat. And they don't call back but post pictures on Facebook or Instagram, that's a sure shot to the throat and the crouch. #warning.

{FIVE}
I caught myself being envious of a pregnant girlfriend and all she has to look forward to with the arrival of her sweet baby boy. The moment that I realized that I had this emotion about a 2nd baby, I proceeded to kick my own ass. Get with it, Stephanie! Now isn't the time to be weak! 


Boy do I feel better... like I say, sometimes a little confession goes a long way! Share a confession in the comments below. I promise you'll feel a a little lighter after you do. 

Happy Friday!
Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Baha ha! I am so with you on #4 it down right just makes angry. Even if it really is a bad time to talk a text saying that would only take like 15 seconds. LAME!

  3. Yes, I live in Kentucky and that is exactly what Fall looks like here too. It's one of the only reasons I like Kentucky

    1. I'm just keeping it real. I'm currently in my pajamas and have been since 12. Now, I did run 5 miles this morning so I celebrate with a pajama day.

  10. Love your confessions. I wish I could give you about 3/4 of the leaves that fall from our huge tree. Maybe I'll mail you some ;)

    1. Do it!! I have so many projects that require pine cones and leaves and they are no where to be found.

  11. 2T and 3T boy clothes are SO HARD to find. Why?!!! Do little boys not need new/cute clothes? And, their shoes. Don't even get me started on finding shoes in M's size - especially at Target!
    Fall… Yes, I remember that season. Vaguely. I think it involved cool, crisp air, and leaves changing colors. I haven't experienced that in about five years. >insert sobs<
    It's ok to want a Baby #2. Juuuuuuuuust saying. :)

    1. No it isn't... I just told an almost 3 year old that my belly didn't make babies anymore... she accepted it simple enough, so now everyone else needs to, too!

  12. My confession- today my son dropped a puff on the floor at Walmart and picked it up and ate it before I could stop him. If I had not been so stressed by every other person at Walmart by that time, I amy have cared lol

  17. Haha I love this post! I find it so hard to find 18-24 boy clothes wherever I shop too, why is it so hard?! Sorry to hear there's no autumn offerings in Texas, Ireland is beginning to change from greens to golds and reds as we speak :)

    1. Ireland?! I don't know if I'm envious of your Fall or your location... oh who am I kidding!? Your location of course.

  18. Well as my son grows older it seems that whatever size he is currently wearing is the one all the stuff I like is gone... go figure. My confession? I will do a jig when kindergarten starts again.

    1. Ha! I'm not much of a Texas lover to begin with BUT there are some perks to living in the south.

  21. Girl, I am almost 30 years old and I don't think I have ever seen fall. Not that I don't want to, but CA just doesn't provide it. Yearning to see fall sometime in my lifetime!
    Oh and #4. Yes, yes, and yes. When I am with you, you respond to EVERYONE SO FAST but when I text, nothing? Ridiculous.
    Love the confessions!
