Confessions

I am linking up with Jess again for some weekly Confessions. Does anyone else LOVE this linkup!? Ladies have a lot on their minds, and I am seriously coming to look forward to doing a little ‘brain dump’ every week.

I confess..

I am lazy lately. Like, really lazy. Maybe this is my subconscious forcing me to enjoy the downtime before life inevitably gets absolutely insane in the next few months. But for real, I am lucky if I get a basket of laundry folded lately..

I really want a bright green shirt for St. Patrick’s Day. This gets tricky because I am pregnant, and really don’t do anything to celebrate the holiday. But now that I have kids, I am coming to look forward to the little things, even if it is dressing in coordinating colors and drinking Shamrock Shakes. And on that note it should not be this hard to find a solid green shirt!

Totally buying Essie polish in ‘boom boom room’. There is a difference between ‘hot pink’, ‘neon pink’, and ‘barbie pink’. I am looking for barbie pink, and have my fingers crossed that I found it. Who knew a person could be so OCD about finding clothing items in specific colors.

I am also totally lusting after a pair of pale yellow chino pants. And cannot find them. ANYWHERE. I am sure that once spring is really here they will start appearing, but come on designers. I am desperate for spring and a clothing item that I can buy to motivate me to drop the baby weight. Help a girl out.

Putting my toddler to bed over the past week or two is seriously giving me (and the hubs) anxiety. Why the heck does it need to take a full hour to fall asleep? I love him so, but if he is going to take that long to fall asleep, he REALLY needs to learn to do it on his own and be okay with us leaving the room. I miss my husband and that one precious hour of time to watch our shows and relax after the Jax man goes to bed.

Last night I went to McDonalds and asked if they had Shamrock Shakes yet. She said yes, but the ice cream machine was broken so they couldn’t be made. My pregnant self said thanks, rolled up my window and drove away. At least I didn’t cry.
After not getting my Shamrock shake I came home and was desperate for something fresh and fruity but couldn’t find anything, so I chugged half a liter of MUG root beer. At least its caffeine free, right?
I took Jackson to open gymnastics for the first time last night and totally have typical mom goggles on I think, because even though all the little kids there are super cute, my goodness my child is seriously the cutest thing I have ever seen. Biased? Yes. But is he actually exceptionally cute? YES.
We finally got our floor plan last night for our new house and I am so happy/relieved/nervous to keep moving forward after our month or so of hiccups in the road that I could cry.
I am buying baby #2 all of the things in mint. I am obsessed and people are probably going to think he is a girl, because he will be extra minty but I don’t care. He will be adorably gender neutral!
With that, happy almost weekend ladies, we almost survived another work week!

    I love mint clothing. I am sure your little man will be very cute. I have never had a shamrock shake. Weird I know.

    it is seriously the worst ever! I have been counting the days to my Shamrock shake, so to have it in house but not be able to get it was TERRIBLE.

    Shamrock shakes are the best! Obviously keeping on trend with my 'mint' theme 😉

    Oh my gosh you have to try one! Minty, creamy shake goodness from McDonalds. And I have been checking Gap actually, they have some adorable chinos right now; no pale yellow, but other fabulous colors! I will keep my eyes open 🙂

    I'm convinced McDonald's knows when I NEED ice cream because their machine is always broken then! I'll admit one time when I was pregnant I drove to another McD's to get a vanilla cone…ridiculous, right?! And extra minty boys are totally cute! 😉

    it is seriously THE WORST! I debated driving across town for ice cream somewhere else, but we live so far out of town I couldn't justify so I just drove my sad pregnant self home 😉 Glad you agree on the mint trend for little boys; all of the things are so cute I just can't say no!

    The ice cream machine being broken at McDonald's would make me cry. That's the entire reason I go – for the McFlurrys!
