Wednesday Confessional #2

I'm all over the place this week, and have about 20 more minutes of Henry's nap time to crank out a post I *thought* I had already written and scheduled... Sike! It's not in the que. It's still in my noggin.

I'm changing posting plans in light of my blog negligence. Here are some of my deepest confessions, round two, for you:

I CONFESS that I'm stuffing my face with tortilla chips dipped in ranch right now. There's grease on my keyboard to show for it. So that pregnancy diet is working well for me.


I CONFESS that I'm really missing partaking in one of summer's finest glory's: Getting drunk and singing/dancing to country songs. It can be old school country like Johny Cash or it can be BroCountry like Jason Aldean; I don't discriminate. There really isn't anything that's more fun than hot weather, cold beer and loud country jams. Oh, you do this too? We're probably secret BFFs. Oh, you turn your nose up at country music? You've probably never been a six pack in when THIS SONG comes on. You should get over yourself and try it.

Seriously, this is one of the best things of summer. I know I'm in my 30's and a mother; long hair don't care.

She's right about this...

I CONFESS that I've entered my second trimester! And this baby has decided to make me sicker than ever. All I've been able to keep down (those tortilla chips and ranch are purely speculative) are vegetarian chicken patties. I know. Trust me, I'm not functioning under some bull$h!t food marketing strategy that they're "healthier." They're just as processed as the real chicken ones! But at least I won't find disgusting gristle or other weird chicken parts in there. And if I keep talking about that, these chips really will make a quick exit...

Chicken gristle FTB (for the barf)

Finally, I CONFESS to the people on Facebook saying, "Christmas is only six months away!" and to the one pinner I follow on Pinterest who keeps pinning Halloween stuff: slow your roll! It's the first of July friends. That $h!t is a long ways off. Be present and enjoy your summer! #namaste Except for me, I get a pass. Because I'm pregnant, sicker than a dog and sober as a clam, I'm going to be wishing away this summer and welcoming the holidays just as fast as they want to get here.

C'mon Christmas, c'mon Christmas, C'MON!

  1. Hahaha!

    Thanks for keeping it real girlfriend. I'll drink enough beer and dance badly so you don't have to. :P

  2. Haha this is hilarious! What a fun way to get through hump day.

  3. I dont really understand people that are sad when time flies by so fast but then they are the ones planning x-mas in july - not ok!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. ugh, sorry you're feeling so sick! you almost made me gag with the gristly chicken bits though haha. i am not wishing christmas will be here or anything but i did just order my 2016 planner yesterday. hashtag loser.

  5. There you go with that ranch dressing again. I swear they should just take it off the market then I won't have anymore temptations with ordering a side of fries just to dip them into my ranch dressing for my salad. The grease on the keyboard. Best visual ever. Totally can see it. I hope you feel better!!! Yes there is something about the Summer and cold bevs with hot weather and I feel you on the singing to country music. We are such kindred spirits ;)

  6. OMG yes girl to this blog! Thank you thank you! Spit some truth, love this idea for a post! I dip tortilla chips in hummus haha. Totally not what it's intended for...who cares!

  7. OMG I'm literally laughing at my desk about BroCountry and getting drunk and singing/dancing. That about describes my childhood (well, not me getting drunk but my parents and their friends. I just got to watch it all unfold which was amazing as a 10 year old). I will be thinking of you in spirit while I do these exact things this weekend. :)
    And to add to people slowing their roll, I was at Hobby Lobby 2 weeks ago and they already had Fall AND Christmas decorations up! WTF Hobby Lobby?! Knock that sh*t off right now!
    Sorry you're so sick girl! I really hope it passes soon!

  8. Now you made me want tortilla chips with ranch haha! I must confess....I'm one of those people pinning Christmas stuff! I'm very much enjoying the summer, just enjoying thinking about Christmas at the same time :)

  9. Is it sad that I am thinking about trying this tortilla chips dipped in ranch? They're only two of my favorite things!

  10. My brother, sister-in-law, and their kiddos are all vegetarians. The last time I went to visit them, I scarfed down my nephew's quinoa "burger" patty. It was surprisingly not terrible. I can see how those would be somewhat, um, settling (?). Here's hoping your nausea subsides soon!
