Confessional Friday

Hi Girls-

Let me first say, it is so nice to be back linking up with the lovely Leslie at  I've been a bit absent over the last few weeks--honestly, not for anything particular but as I described in my last post I've been in a bit of a blunk (a blog funk).  But I'm back and I have so many great topics to write about because again, I'm going back to this being about me and getting out things that I want to write about.  So let's get to it.  My Confessional Friday...

1.  I confess that I am trying to cut back on my sweet tea and went cold turkey this week.  I'm dying!!
2.  I confess that I painted my girls (dogs) room last night and am loving the results (pictures below).
3.  I confess that I totally overlooked St. Patrick's decorations and went straight to Spring décor and am so obsessed with walking through my dining room right now (pictures below).
4.  I confess that I went to Ikea on Saturday and was completely overwhelmed by the millions of people that were there shopping (that and the fact that I had a shopping cart that I had to keep over correcting thus giving me an awesome arm workout).
5.  I confess that I had cereal for dinner twice this week.
6.  I confess that I have added burlap to my list of favorite colors (ok, I know, not really a color but just go with it, ok?)
7.  I confess that I started watching Southern Charm on Bravo.  Yes, this reality TV queen has found time for yet another reality show and it's not Real Housewives of wherever.  Back to Southern Charm, it is based in Charleston which is a close second to my favorite Southern city of Savannah.  It is mostly about privileged adults living it up, manipulating women and drinking a lot of bourbon (or a lot of anything for that matter) but I tell you what, a Southern accent just does it for me.  I also fell prey to Online Dating Rituals of the American Male and honestly, it makes me not ever want to get back on dating websites.  BTW, Bravo is the devil!  I waste so much time on their channel!
8.  I confess that I'm learning a new level of patience in this job hunt.  I am hoping to hear back from two companies that I was expecting to hear from first of the week.  Please pray that if these are the right situations for me that it works out and if not, that God opens up that alternate door for me.
9.  I confess that I had a meeting with my consultant at the outplacement service I am using to review my Birkman test that I took with them.  It is kind've like a personality test and I can't wait to share the results with you--wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry at how accurate the results were.  Make sure you come back to read my post on that.
10.  I confess that I was sucked into the Bachelor this season because of the hot Latino, otherwise known as Juan.  However, I think he is one mucho el dirtobag (did y'all get that--one big dirtbag, ha!)  Outside of the personal shaming, tongue swapping, baby talk, condescending nature, the only redeeming quality that this el douchebag seems to have is that he appears to be a good father.  If you want to read the most hilarious recap of the season, scoot on over to Sheaffer at  Honestly, I kept following the show just so I could read her recaps every week. This girl is spot on!
11.  Lastly, I confess that I am working on a post that a friend of mine suggested of writing a letter to my younger self.  It's a lot more intense than I thought it would be but boy oh boy, what I wouldn't give to know then what I know now. 


Burlap eggs, don't mind if I do!

This is my dog room (it's the closet under the stairs).  I love it! 

Hope you all have a super fantastic weekend!!!!
