October Confessions

just-be-happy-today

Happy Wednesday! It’s that time again for my monthly confessions! Hope each of you had a great Halloween! I’m getting excited for this weekend, as my husband is off for 4 days straight which never happens. I’m taking half the day off on Friday to get my hair did (yay!) and taking Monday off to spend some extended time with the family. We have passes for Ripley’s attractions, so we’re heading to nearby Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg for a little fun weekend getaway and I’m pumped to ride some go-karts with the boys! πŸ™‚

October Confessions

Mom Confessions
  • Last Friday, I tried on a skirt and new pair of over-the-knee boots and jokingly asked my husband if I looked like a hooker. Unbeknownest to me my 4 year old was listening in and he then proceeded to say “Mom, you look like a hoo-kah.” I tried to contain my laughter as I asked him if he even knew what that was, to which he replied “Yeah, of course- it’s someone who hooks fish and wears boots.”
  • The other evening as I was emptying the dryer (story of my life), my son reaches down, sniffs the piles of clothes in the basket, and looks up to me and says “Smells like victory!” And no, neither my husband nor myself have ever said this phrase. Ever. lol
Food Confessions
  • I ate lucky charms for the first time in ten years the other day, and I had forgotten how good it is. It’s no wonder all these kids love eating it- it’s straight up candy for breakfast.
  • My husband and I totally rummaged through our kids trick or treat buckets last night after they went to sleep. There’s stuff in there they totally won’t eat anyways! πŸ˜‰
Random Confessions
  • I’ve already started listening to Christmas music, and I have no shame in it. I feel like the holidays always fly by anyways, so I’m gonna pro-long it if I can!
  • I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for the return of Gilmore Girls! I truly hope it lives up to my expectations. Plus I’m wondering if Luke and Lorelai ever tied the knot!
Pet Peeve of the Week

confessions-5

Does anyone else feel like this every time they drive up to an ATM? I have to literally unbuckle, open the door, and physically get out of my car to reach the computer. This pretty much eliminates all the “convenience” factor. Maybe it’s just short people probs. lol

    I definitely have to go buy a box of Lucky Charms now. Things like that never taste as good as they did when you were young, but they still taste pretty darn good.

    • Yeah I went into it thinking, these aren’t going to be as good, but they were pretty amazing! lol

    These are so fun. Your son sounds super cute. I bet you and your hubby are always laughing. Lol. I totally feel the ATM thing. I’m short too so I always have to practically crawl out of my car to reach the computer. Sigh lol

    Posted 11.2.16 Reply
    • They both crack us up! And good that makes me feel better about the ATM lol.

      Posted 11.5.16 Reply
  15. LOL at the “hook-ah” comment! Kids are too funny and pick up on EVERYTHING. Also, the other day I had my music on shuffle and a Christmas song came on and…I kept it. Something about the cold weather and gloomy day made it seem so fitting – sorry not sorry!

    Posted 11.2.16 Reply
    • I know, right?! I feel like it comes and goes so fast, we might as well soak it up while we can! πŸ™‚

  25. I was listening to Christmas music on Friday…:) I felt a bit ridiculous but at the same time, I loved it.

    Also, I’m super excited about the Gilmore Girls return and the Fuller House trailer came out yesterday and I cried in excitement. LOL

  29. I’m too suspicious to use the drive through ATM so I never do because I always think that it’s been tampered with and people will steal my PIN and access to my account!

    Hahahaaha that last ecard! YES!!! Ok so confession…I was at the drive thru in the bank the other day to deposit some checks and I dropped the stupid plastic tube thing and it rolled under my car so I had to back up some to get it. Well i got out….realized I needed to back up even more because me and my pregnant belly wouldn’t fit. Meanwhile the teller just stared at me through the window. Like help a girl out!! LOL!

    I am totally listening to Christmas music too!! And I LOVE Gatlinburg!!! We go with Chris’s family every year after Christmas for a week and get a huge chalet and do all the fun things. Unfortunately this year we aren’t going since I don’t want to travel with a newborn…but it is back on next year for sure!

    • Oh my goodness! I hate those things and am always paranoid I’m going to drop them lol. Aw this Christmas will be so much fun for you all regardless of where you’re at! πŸ™‚
