April Confessions

donutworrybehappy

Happy Humpday, Ya’ll! We’re just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the weekend, so smile, grab a doughnut, and get ready for another month’s worth of confessions!

Mom Confessions: 

  • I know it literally only takes 5 minutes but I swear it feels like it takes me an eternity to pack lunches every night, and it’s seriously the most daunting task in my book. Plus my son always has very specific requests such as “Peanut Butter and Jelly, with the crust cut off, cut into triangles, and make sure the peanut butter and jelly is mixed together.” I might as well make the peanut butter from scratch while I’m at it.- LOL
  • I had such a funny conversation the other day with my boys about the “Big Bad Wolf” from the Three Little Pigs. They asked if he could ever get into our house, to which I replied “No, our house is made of brick and no matter how hard he huffs and puffs he can’t blow it down.” They seemed relieved, but then my Mr. Smarty Pants 5-year-old replies, “But Mom, he could just come through the door, duh!”

Hair/Beauty Confessions: 

hey girl funny

  • I confess that I’m always so content with my makeup collection and all like “Oh I’ve got plenty”, until Ulta sends me a new advertisement every month. Then I’m all like “I want this, and this, ooo and this!”
  • There are days I wish there was a magical hair robot that could fix my hair how I want it on demand. Sleek and straight tresses- done! Gorgeous beach waves- check! Fancy braids- bam! It’d be so wonderful and would save me an extra 30 minutes of my life.

Random Confessions:

iPhone alarm funny

  • I confess that this is what my alarm clock looks like every morning. Yes, I’m one of those that lets the alarm go off every 5 minutes to make sure I wake up on time and am not late…it kills my husband-haha
  • No matter what time of year it is and what the temperature is outside, you can always find me curled up under a blanket inside. I’m seriously always freezing! I even have a space heater at my desk at work, which I frequently run in the summertime due to the fact they keep the air on 50 degrees.

Pet Peeve of the Week: 

Having conversations with people who clearly aren’t paying attention while you’re talking. You know the ones who while they’re talking it’s all eyes and ears on them, but as soon as they’re done speaking they have no concern for anyone else’s comments. So annoying.

Humor/Funnies:

snack humor

knocks on the door humor

pen humor

look great humor

fridaygotmelike

Enjoy this beautiful day!- Cara

    Haha, love these! Thanks for being so open and honest. I can definitely relate to the temperature one. It’s spring now and getting to be in the 20’s during the day, but I’m still in jeans and take a sweater and/or jacket with me out, haha.

    • Glad to know we’re similar! I’m always the one with a cardigan or sweater on when it’s like 90 degrees out-haha I freeze!

    Oh my goodness were the same on the alarm and blanket thing. I always have a blanket on me- even if it’s just my feet in the summer. My husband now leaves for work before me but oh my goodness he used to moan and growl when my alarms would go off every 6 minutes. Lollll love it girl!

    • Haha I’m so glad others do the alarm clock thing- that makes me feel less crazy about it 😉

    I love these posts. They always make me laugh! I am so with you on waking up and having a robot fix my hair, haha. That is hilarious about the lunches. I don’t have to worry about that quite yet, but no doubt it will be annoying. And, the big bad wolf story is so sweet. Kids say the darnedest things LOL.

    • Thank-you! Haha my boys keep me laughing for sure with their silliness 😉 & Trust me girl, once you get to the lunch packing days- you’ll completely understand.

  10. I’m so with you on the hair! I love curling my hair, but sometimes hate having to curl it. I usually just resort to me sea salt spray then, which gives it a nice texture and wave!

    Posted 4.28.16 Reply
    • That’s a great tip! I’m all about the 5 minute looks that don’t require a ton of effort 🙂

    I can completely relate to the whole Ulta thing! I have so much make up and then I get more and more. It’s never ending…whoops. Haha. I also can completely relate to taking my pen to see if it has ink in it and scribbling all over the page.

    Can you do all lunch prep on Sunday nights? When my husband is here and I’m packing his and my lunches each day, I do all the prep-work in 30 minutes or so on Sundays.

    • I have tried to do that before and it definitely helps. I guess I need to just make myself! haha

    • Haha, the struggle was definitely real for me this morning. I could NOT get up on time! 🙂

      Posted 4.28.16 Reply
  17. The alarms! That is me! Except I break mine up in random increments. If it’s every 5 minutes, my brain functions just enough to tell itself “oh, you have another alarm in 5 minutes.”……..but if I have, let’s say, 6 minutes, then my brain is all confused! Ha!

    Posted 4.27.16 Reply
    • Haha I may have to do that just to confuse my brain! 🙂

      Posted 4.27.16 Reply
  18. I set tons of alarms too! And it takes 5 minutes to pick out my outfit for the next day at night, or 20 minutes the next morning 🙂

    Posted 4.27.16 Reply
    • Yep! I’m the same way. If I don’t pick it out the night before I’m so indecisive in the morning. It’s like my brain can’t handle all the choices..lol

      Posted 4.27.16 Reply
  19. My husband is the same way with his alarm. It drives me NUTS. He sets for like an hour before he has to get up … let’s it ring FOREVER. Just to decide that he doesn’t feel like getting up at all (*retired military*). Urgh. And while all of this is happing I’m just getting madder and madder because he woke me up super early with his alarm 🙂

    Posted 4.27.16 Reply
    • Haha oh my gosh, now that I wouldn’t do. If I don’t have to get up for work or anything, I definitely do NOT set an alarm. But I can understand how that is annoying-lol.

      Posted 4.27.16 Reply
  20. I’m the same way about lunches! It doesn’t even take that long, but my heart sinks every time I’m ready to go upstairs to bed and then I remember I haven’t made lunches for the next day. It’s so daunting!

    Posted 4.27.16 Reply
    • Yep, getting ready to have to pack them in a second, and I’m dreading it-haha Glad you share my pain 😉

      Posted 4.27.16 Reply
  21. Love this! Your alarm had me cracking up! If I didn’t get up on the first alarm I’d never get up. And yup, that is so me and snacks! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

    Posted 4.27.16 Reply
    • Thank-you! Yes- That’s why I can’t have tons of snack choices in the house or i’ll end up eating a “little” of each, which ends up being a lot.-haha

    I’m amazed that you need an alarm clock when you have kids, I get the 6:30 wake up call whether I like it or not haha! I am the exact same about the blanket too – but I’m in the UK so it’s literally always freezing!

    Posted 4.27.16 Reply
    • Haha yes, what is it about kids waking up at 6:30? They automatically wake up no matter what day it is. I unfortunately have to be up no later than 6, though. 🙁

  25. LOL! Your alarm clock!!! That’s seriously hilarious. I never need to set an alarm since my son gets up at 6am. FUN TIMES!

    Girl…I can relate to so many of these! I hate packing MY lunch! LOL! No kids yet…but packing my lunch for work is so frustrating. Sometimes I delete the Ulta email without reading it…LOL! And if you find a robot like that, please send one my way. I’m sure my husband would love if I had that extra time to sleep too, so that my alarm won’t be going off every 10 minutes. Bahaha! Loved this…I came over from the link up with Jessi!

    • Yes! I’m so glad you can relate! I usually can ignore the Ulta e-mails but they send me the mailers (which let’s be honest I don’t get a ton of physical mail anymore), so I casually browse through them and then end up thinking I need to buy 87 new products. haha Glad you found my blog through the link-up! 🙂

      Posted 4.27.16 Reply
  28. I had to comment because we both have doughnut pics today in our posts. Clearly soul sisters! Lol… omg the lunch thing is so true. I beg my kids once in awhile to buy lunch and they are always like no way Mom please make my lunch… fine! Seriously it takes like no time though:) Have a good one!

    Posted 4.27.16 Reply
    • Oh how funny! Haha my son is the same way. If I make him buy a tray it’s like I’m forcing him to eat dirt or something. & I know it’s probably only a 2 minute task but it feels like an eternity-LOL Have a great day! 🙂

  29. This was such a fun post! I love that hey girl meme! So funny 😉

    OMG this is amazing. (I saved some of your GIFs and sent them to friends! haha) I only have a 2.5 month old, but I was sitting with my friends who have school aged kiddos and they always hate lunch making haha. Here in The Bahamas they won’t let you bring any peanuts or peanut products school so they have to even check for peanut factory things on the bag. The allergies of some of the kids are so bad. It’s crazy.

    I need to do a confessions. Its hilarious.

    i totally feel you on buying stuff you don’t need! Whenever I’ve stocked up on my essential makeup items, Too faced or benefit or one of those brands who’re my favorite will come out with a new product! Take the sweet peach palette for example, I’ve been dying to get it once it came out and now they’re sold out everywhere. That just makes me want it even more! lol

  34. Haha I’m the same way when the doorbell rings (or any weird noise) while I’m home alone, and I’m always curled up under blankets too which makes my husband think I’m a total weirdo while he’s sweating under the ceiling fan. And I completely agree with you about tasks that only take a few minutes, but feel like they take up hours in your day and a huge weight is lifted when you don’t need to complete them 🙂

    Ugh I can’t stand the people who only want to talk about themselves. There is one girl in my husband’s group of friends (the wife of one of the guys) and everyone hates being around her because all she does is complain about things (she doesn’t have kids, and she doesn’t work), and when you try and have a conversation with her she just keeps talking about what she wanted to talk about as if you didnt say anything at all

    Posted 4.27.16 Reply
    • Yes! I know those types. I feel like there’s one in every group of people. Very hard to communicate with those individuals.

    • Haha yes! We’re basically like distance sisters… I never realized the pen thing was weird until one day someone was like “do you really need to scribble all over the page to see if it works?!” I’m like uh yeah, sometimes if you just do the line it doesn’t prove it ACTUALLY works it will give you a false alarm.

    I’m definitely a multiple alarm setter (my get-up alarm, my you-better-be-up alarm, and my shit-you’re-going-to-be-late alarm) but lately, I’ve been JUMPING out of bed in the morning to get to my workouts that I haven’t needed the others (knock on wood). I’m learning the amount of sleep that my body actually needs which has been life changing!

    Posted 4.27.16 Reply
    • Haha, I love that! That’s great that you’ve been on a better schedule. I think once you find a good groove it’s easier to get up in the mornings.

      Posted 4.27.16 Reply
  50. I like blankets too, so I always crank the AC so that I’m comfortable. I like being underneath something! I should do that with my alarm, I always snooze my iPhone but the 9 minute interval is so weird for a snooze time. I need like a 2 minute snooze.

  54. ugh those people who don’t pay attention when you’re talking. i straight up turn around and just walk away. i have no time for rudeness. i did that at my first job when i was trying to my manager something important but he just picked up his blackberry and started looking at his email so i stopped talking and left. he came to my desk and said: why did you leave? so i looked him right in the face and said: “i was talking when you picked up your phone and started reading your email which is extremely rude. if you don’t care what i have to say ABOUT WORK, then i won’t waste my breath and you can find out on your own”. then i turned around and started typing on my keyboard. fuck that shit.
