confessions lite

Not every Wednesday can be a cathartic release. Some days you just want to admit to some not-so-perfect things you do or think and link up with Kathy anyway. We'll call these Confessions Lite. Spelled incorrectly intentionally.

- Just like I have to refrain from correcting poor grammar online, I have to stop myself from correcting tweets. People - if you start a tweet with @name, then it will only be seen by the person you're tweeting to or people who follow both of you. If you want to start a tweet with the person's name, then just put a period in front of it!

Kind of irrelevant, but sometimes true.

- I went home and cooked dinner the other night, and by cooked I mean I used leftover chicken from Sunday's meal to make the easiest enchiladas ever. I felt like I deserved a medal for my efforts. I don't know how those of you who do other stuff full-time cook, too.

- I wanted to wear sandals and I needed to change my toe polish. Instead of doing it the right way, I just repainted over the existing polish with a fresh coat. Whatever works, right?

- Several times a week, I have to refrain from tweeting a random song lyric a la AIM away messages.

- When I have to click to continue reading in a blog post, I get unnecessarily irritated. Why must you give me an extra step?

- I think I should ask Kerry or Kate to write confessions posts for me as they have been getting triple doses of Lauren honesty lately.

- Things that aren't pretty (like memes) that show up in my instagram feed annoy me. A food account I followed instagrammed a Starbucks cup and some yogurt. To me, instagramming Starbucks is like instagramming toilet paper - we all have it, and it all looks the same, so do you have to show it to me?

- I started writing this post on Tuesday and shortly after a friend IG'd her Starbucks cup. I still love you friend, but my confession stands.

- The words "dat, "dem," and "doe" need to disappear. Regular English please, thanks.

- I don't get Miranda Lambert. I don't listen to country music anymore so that's probably why but everyone is losing their minds over her new music and I'm still mad that I can't get the new Coldplay on Spotify.

- I floss six days a week and I enjoy it. I usually give myself a night off over the weekend if I'm super sleepy and just want to go to bed.

- I don't like summer. I don't like pools or beaches or the sun or summer clothes all that much. I'm already wishing for winter and Christmas decorating and boots with leggings.

Well that was fun... I'm interested to see what you're confessing today.

  2. Dat der is a good post :)

    So I totally paint over existing toe nail polish all the time.

    I get tired of seeing Starbucks cups on Instagram and other social media as well. The only time it is acceptable is if you are letting us all know that the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back...or the red cups are out.

    I was just thinking the other day, as I was metaphorically sweating my balls off, that I am ready for fall again! So much heat. Also, I can't cover up my flab as much with less clothes, so there is that.

  3. The ONLY thing I like about summer is the pool and being tan! Luckily, I tan super easily and have never had a sun burn. {I give you permission to hate me know, most people do when I tell them that} If I am not in the pool, the South GA heat and 100% humidity (all day, every day) are not worth it.

  4. New polish over old polish? Heck yes! Have done it too many times to count!

  5. Like Kathy, I only use dat when quoting Sweet Brown. It took me a long time to figure out why the F people were using doe because it would never occur to me to do something so foolish. STOP IT.

    I like some stuff about summer, but it's not my favorite season. I detest humidity and heat.

  6. Hahahha, was I the sbux culprit?! If so, I did it to show my "coffee" post ;) LOL...I totally lazy paint my toes with a second coat as well when I don't have time. I am glad I'm not the only one.

  7. You should totally tweet song lyrics, I love those tweets because I usually end up singing away in my head.

    I thought I was the only person who did not like Miranda Lambert, I don't not like her but I'm not impressed by her and I don't care for her music. Truth be told I think her and Blake are raging alcoholics and I'm interested to see how long they can sustain successful careers while always drunk.

  9. For two weeks I had to wear closed toe shoes since I hadn't painted my toes. You can keep the honesty coming girl! I m not a fan of Starbucks so I don't care for seeing cups, though my own homemade coffee gets posted. No fair, it's not a polar vortex where you are so no wishing away summer we need it after the hell that was winter!

  10. I NEED to be better about flossing. Good for you doing it so consistently!

  11. OMG I'm dying over the "instagramming Starbucks is like instagramming toilet paper"...I totally agree! I always feel like any time I actually make dinner I need an award :) I'm always like "P, aren't you happy I made dinner". Is your secret job a dental hygienist? Really, no one does that :) And because I cannot resist...Dat dem here was a mighty fine post (he, he)

  12. So what's that thing about twitter? Put a period in front of it for real or was that a joke? I don't get it!! I also don't floss. I need to. I do it for a few days after my dentist appt then I stop.

  13. HAHAH YESS!!I had a confessions light sorta thing today lol! I wish it was juicier but we all have our weeks right? haha And also, I HATE having to click the ''click to read on'' thing! And I swear to god I only do it on Humpday confessions (bc I don't want just anyone seeing my dirty laundry) but I annoy myself with it too lol!! Great post girl! XO

    Lisa,xo

  14. "Like instagramming toilet paper!" hahahaah! I'm dying. I feel that way when at least once a week you can count on certain people to have coffee posts of at least one type. I want to be like, "I GET IT! YOU DRINK COFFEE!" But folks still "heart" the shit out of those so I guess they are a winners!

  16. Hey I don't like summer either!!! Let's be friends!

  17. Haha, YES to the Starbucks IG-overload! I would even go so far and question all coffee pictures - aint nobody got time for that.
    But, but - no summer lovin' for you? That is so sad! I'm flummoxed.

  18. -TOTALLY DID THE SAME THING WITH MY NAIL POLISH THIS WEEKEND.

    - Also, why can't we just post song lyrics all day on Twitter just like aim?! When did that no longer become cool?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think of you anytime I post a Starbucks cup. I agree, it can get annoying. ;)

    I'm with ya -- I don't see how people can have full-time jobs and still be able to put a meal on the table every night (before 8 p.m.!) Poor David, I usually ask, "What frozen stuff should we heat up tonight?" Our go-to is tilapia (from Costco!) and broccoli or green beans.

  20. bahahahhaha, starbucks "we all have it so why post it" so true!

  21. Oh please don't wish my summer away sweet sweet summer time LOL

    I agree with dat, doe, dem... WTF is that anyway!?

  22. Let's see...I can't even remember the last time I painted my toenails. Yes, I know that's sad. I'm putting it on my June to-do list! Yeah, it just got even sadder.

    I don't Tweet or IG, so that is lost on me.

    When I was student teaching, one of my students (high school senior in a reading support class) asked me how to spell "doe." I said, "What do you mean? Like doe, a deer, a female deer?" And she said, "No. Like, even doe..." I about died!

    I actually floss every single day! :) Unless I'm on vacation. Apparently I view vacation as a break from all sorts of obligations, including flossing. :/

  23. Sometimes I start tweets with @ even though I know the rule because I don't want everyone to see it. Rule breaker on purpose here.

  24. All the summer loving posts bore me. I don't like sand or sweating or bugs or pollen... just bring me snow please!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ohhhh man... AIM away messages. I remember once I put "sex me so good I say blah blah blah" from the Missy Elliott song Work It and my mom yelled at me! hahah

  26. If you find a time machine that can transport you to winter, please take me with you! I know summer JUST started but I'm already done with it.

  30. I'm not a fun of summer either, except that school is out.

  31. My brother and my husband would both be pretty happy if there were no such thing as summer. I, on the other hand, would happily live in the tropics so as to never be cold again...

  32. Please, correct my spelling/grammer any old time. I swear I must have been a sleep in every english class I ever took. I made it through college mixing up hole and whole, wth???

    Love ML, but haven't heard her new song. Gotta Google it now.

    XO

  33. I did not know that trick about tweets ;) thanks I'd be guilty of it!

  34. I need to get onto your flossing game!! I'm the worst at it and just do it when I feel I have something in my teeth. you're my hero.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I hope you tweeted your Starbucks cup/toilet paper analogy because that is absolutely tweet worthy and probably the truest thing I've heard all week! I am kind of over Instagram lately, but I think I need to just clear up my feed. Too many people posting the same damn thing all the time, you know?

I like comments and read them all but I'm not great about responding to them, so please don't be offended. I would much rather visit your blog instead!
