Confesh Sesh.

It's been a hop skip and a jump since I shared some confessions, and what better day to do so than humpday?

I posted my crow pose on instagram and a girl at work asked me how I did it, so I showed her. I did it once, then did it again and almsost fell flat on my face, thankfully I was able to get my arms out from under me in time. I've never fallen in crow before, that was fun and super graceful.


When I text KC but he's like, busy working or living and I don't hear from in in a few hours and he doesn't answer when I call...


I just want to note that it is quite normal for us to go all day without talking, but if I texted him earlier and I still haven't heard from him by 5pm (when he's well out of school / gym) I start to freak out.

After I saw The Martian, I asked a guy at work if he liked to read. I was prepared for him to say yes, then I could recommend The Martian (book and movie). But he said no, and I just stood there. I didn't know what to say.


Everyone loves having their birthday on a Saturday, right? Well, I looked ahead and my 29th birthday is on a Friday.. which MEANS my 30th will be on a SATURDAY!

Leap year: lol NOPE. Sunday 30th for you!


I was looking at a particular audiobook and saw that it was $30.


Obviously, I didn't buy it.

The other day I had to select the state I live in for something.. and I had to select it by the shape. If you offered me a million dollars, I couldn't pick Kentucky out by it's shape. I kinda know where it is on a map, but when the names and letters were gone, I seriously had no idea which one it was. So I had to google the shape of KY so I could select the stupid shape. KC got the biggest kick out of it.


I was responding to comments the other day and I wrote 'so glad I shared it' but my fat finger hit the T after the R so I wrote sharted and I laughed and laughed and laughed.


When I first moved to the US, I saw a wonka candy bar. I was so confused and then I was like wait was Willy Wonka a real person was that a true story I'm so confused.


Speaking of not knowing what is real vs movies and such, the other day I discovered reindeers are real. I didn't know that. Did you know that? You probably knew that.

Remember that crazy long detailed post about getting dining reservations at Disney? Disney cracked down on all those websites (some of them were actually hoarding and selling reservations, not the ones I talked about, they just watched them) so all the websites closed.. which means.. that post is completely useless. LOL. Or rather, not lol'ing over here. Good thing I didn't spend any time on that post.


The other day I mentioned we might be skipping Europe next year so that we could start doing responsible things like buying a bigger bed. Well, we are finally upgrading from our little double / full size bed to a KING! A KING! It arrives this weekend. Our room is tiny but it's gonna work and it's gonna be amazing and adult-y. Bye Europe.


Just kidding, I am so excited to have a bigger bed. My next trick will be convincing KC that we also need a new couch. What? If Europe isn't happening, I'm gonna make it worth it, right?

So I was perusing goodreads, as you do, and I came across this book and I was like okay good ratings, sounds interesting, POLAR BEAR WHO IS REALLY A PRINCE? I mean of course I added it to my TBR and bought the book immediately. I'm scared to read it though, what if it doesn't compare to that really awful movie that I love?


So on that note... Happy Wednesday all.

  1. Love this! The Disney dining post thing is so sad! I feel like they're making a lot of changes. I've been trying to get fast passes for The Seven Dwarfs ride since I got my season passes and no luck. Yay to a king bed too, so nice! And $30 for an audio book? What are they smoking?! No way! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  2. NO, Disney, no! Say it isn't soooooooooooo! I loved your post on the dining, you are sooo detail, stupid company!

    I'm with you on the texting, sometimes you just want one back after it's be, I don't know six hours. MEN! Kentucky is a fun shaped state, and reindeers are amazing. I saw a bunch in Alaska, but none of them knew Santa, rude!

  3. Oh my goodness, this post has me cracking up from sharts to polar bear princes, and thinking Willy Wonka was a real person. I ADORE this post! :)
    Also, what website has you pick your state via shape?? That is SO weird!

    ReplyDelete
  4. There is so much to comment on with this post - like literally everything so I'll just comment on the not hearing from KC one... when that happens to me I'm the same way - like where were you - actually working or something haha! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. once you go king, you will NEVER go back! we have a king and every time we travel, i'm like "a queen bed? WHO ARE YOU KIDDING?!" lol

    ReplyDelete
  6. Haha I would have no idea what your state looks like either, but I guess I don't live there! ;) Honestly, a lot of the states seem to be the same shape to me!!! My husband is pushing for a king sized bed and we definitely have the room but we do OK in the queen sized one so I'm not in a rush! That will be amazing though :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. Ugh jonathan does THE SAME THING. I'm like "dude, please let me know you're not dead, k?"

    ReplyDelete
  8. I loved all of your confessions. Especially the ones about Willy Wonka and Reindeer. Gosh that king bed will feel amazing. I have a full and I feel like it's too small for me and I need to upgrade.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I laughed and laughed and laughed in my office at work when I read about you fat fingering "shared" into something else. I can't believe you've been sleeping in a double bed this whole time! I have a queen and its just me and its awesome.

  10. That's so funny that you couldn't pick Kentucky out by shape! I'm absolutely rubbish at geography and only know the states around Pennsylvania. I don't think I could name about 80% of the states by shape, but I definitely know PA!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Haha... love that you admit the KY thing, I've lived in a few states and sometimes I truly forget where I am! I could go all day with out talking to someone I am close to but then if you over think it for one second panic sets in, why is that??? I didn't know reindeer were real until a few years ago:)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Haha... these are so funny! Love the Willi Wonka one. My husband just started reading The Martian... was the movie good?

    ReplyDelete
  13. We don't really talk all day either, but if I do send a communication and realize a few hours later it hasn't been answered, I immediately think MFD is dead on the side of the road. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  14. Best confessions post I've read yet!! lol I agree. Adulting sucks. Especially when you feel like you need to refurnish your whole house!! I'm right there with you on a new bed and couch.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hah! B and I bought ourselves a new mattress last year instead of doing Christmas gifts -- it was seriously the best thing ever. ALSO, I retaliate when I don't hear from him -- I'm all FINE, I just won't answer your texts either!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Bahhaha oh goodness. I think US geography would be confusing especially if you didn't grow up learning it. I'm so obsessed with travel maps etc. that I have a pretty good idea... but it gets a little fuzzy in some parts of the east coast. I would have no idea what to that coworker either.... lol Definitely had a "reindeer dog" when we were in Alaska in July... : / XO -Alexandra

  17. hahahaha You are too funny! :) Yay for a King size bed!! It is the way to go, although I still have to tell my hubs to scoot the heck over. lol. I am not a snuggler when I'm sleeping. Have a good day, lady!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I did mean to tell you I was super impressed with your crow pose. Get it, get it. That sh*t is hard!!

    And YES to the whole OMGMYHUSBANDISDEAD thing. I come up with the craziest freaking scenarios in my head if it's later than it "should" be to hear from Freddie, and then he just struts in the door and I realize how crazy I am ;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Haha great confessions. I love the willy wonka one. I totally have a caribou tattoo and one person one time was like "Is that a reindeer?" NO. Does it have a red nose. I don't think so....even though technically it is.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haha thankfully Tennessee is shaped like a rectangle, otherwise I would never find it. Whenever I see license plates for random states I always ask Alex where they are because my US geography is pretty bad. This is mean but I laughed out loud when I read that Disney cracked down on all of those websites, I have no idea why it was so funny to me.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Audiobooks can be stupid expensive. I curse iTunes every time we go on a road trip. Also, Kentucky kind of looks like a fried chicken leg turned on its side.

  22. Yay for a king size bed, it's worth every single penny! And lol at the reindeer and Willy Wonka - I thought the same thing when I saw Willy Wonka candy ;-)

  23. "I don't know how to respond to that." Bahahahaha! I actually have to use ALLLLLL my energy not to make a face when someone tells me they don't like to read. It's painful.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I really want to upgrade to a king soon. And I want a new couch too!!! Remember little Livvy? She tore our leather to shreds. Rude! So we can see her little claw marks all over the top of our couch and ottoman still. Reindeer are so totally real! I have pet one before! True story. Also, I LOL'd at the Kentucky thing. I mean, its not your birth country so no shame. If someone else cant point it out though? For shame for real!

    ReplyDelete
  25. You're going to love all the space on your new king size bed. As for the US map, luckily FL is an easy one but otherwise don't ask which state is which...I have no clue!

    ReplyDelete
  26. We're sure happy you came here to confess today! I'd have never known how important it is to know the shape of your state! ha-ha You'll know it someday, I promise!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Who says that they don't like to read? At least LIE ABOUT THAT silly coworker!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hooray for a king-size bed! You're going to be in heaven when it finally arrives. You need to go for the couch, too - might as well while you're at it, right? I'm cracking up about the Willy Wonka story. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Haha, I love all of these confessions! But especially the Kentucky one. Or the reindeer one. Can't decide :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. First of all the Polar Bear King is NOT an awful movie! I love it! And since I hopped over to that post but am too lazy to comment in both places (sorry!) I also love, love, love Home Fries and Ever After. I've probably watched Ever After like 85 times and that's not an exaggeration. Anyways I am excited for you and your king bed. Seriously it is a life changer. Also I was cracking up about the Willy Wonka, reindeer and Kentucky shape thing. Girl you are too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  31. We talk every day around 3 to sort of run down how the rest of the day is going to work but other than that, we don't speak at all unless he's bored at work. I stopped thinking he's dead on the side of the road because I figure if he was, someone would pick up his phone and let me know. Does that even make sense?

    The dining part of Disney was the most cumbersome. Actually, Disney's made going there a huge pain in the ass. If every minute isn't scheduled in advance, you probably won't get to do anything. And if they revised how they handle dining, I can't wait to see what they do with Fast Passes. Because that's a nightmare, too.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hahah the sharting comment and your not being able to identify Kentucky made me laugh!
    I want a king bed sooo badly but we couldn't fit one in our condo (there are closet doors on either side of the bed so like...I guess we could get a king but then there would would be no bedside table space at all)...that shouldn't matter now since we don't live there anymore and doubt we will again, but still. I'm afraid to get one anytime soon because I don't know if it will fit wherever we do end up living. And do they cost as much as Europe?!?! I'm so confused!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think I can pick out like 5 states total by their shape... I'm so lucky Michigan is shaped like a mitten haha so I don't blame you!! SO jealous of your King bed! We were just talking about that last night.. the bigger Brady gets, the bigger the bed we need!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I honestly have comments on all of these and I don't know where to start. Probably best to pick just a few. I've totally fallen in crow and other challenge pose demos before, once I even head-bashed someone because of it. In my defense I had been drinking wine and my balance was off. Yay for the new bed! Did you go with Tuft and Needle? You could TOTALLY STILL GO TO EUROPE and just maybe go for like one less day or something. But also, king size bed...yay. I want a new couch too, but it's so far down the list I can't even pretend to think about it until at least the middle of next year. (Hasn't stopped me from bookmarking 10 of the ones I want though.)

    ReplyDelete
  35. these are too funny!! Aren't you excited that reindeer are real?! That mean's there's still a chance for Santa, right?! And thank goodness Maryland has a unique shape or else I'd be in the same boat as you! And still laughing about the Willy Wonka thing. Thanks for sharing - Svetlana @Life With a Side of Wine

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't even know where to start my comment because every single thing you said made me smile or laugh. hahaha. So funny about the state! But you are not native so I totally give you that one. I did know reindeer were real but that's only because I had to look it up as a little kid to hope my dreams could come true. that's really funny about your interaction with your coworker, colleague relationships are endlessly funny (probably why "The Office" is one of my favorite shows). And the wonka thing is totally understandable!! That would confuse me too!

    I DREAM about a King. that is so, so awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oooo so jealous of your king bed!! Enjoy! haha

    ReplyDelete
  38. This post is amazing-I seriously laughed/wanted to comment about everything...so here goes nothing. Haha. So excited for you and that king bed! I loved the Kentucky thing-you didn't go to school here so you're totally off the hook. ;) I just...can't with the polar bear who is really a prince...what is that?! lol. I'm going to have to read your GoodReads review on that one when you read it. I never know how to respond to people who don't like to read either other than to ask what's wrong with them. ;) My little brother is in college and he recently asked me how I stayed motivated...and I was like uhhh...I liked school? I know it's not the same thing as yours, but I had that same reaction. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Dangit Disney!!! That post rocked. Also, I definitely LOLd at the sharted commented... I'm 12 years old, it's cool ;) AND omg, I cannot believe you guys have a full bed- SO DO WE. I thought we were the only people in the history of the world with that bed size- haha! We are also upgrading soon, but only a queen. #tinyroomprobz

    ReplyDelete
  40. You are so funny! I knew that there were willy wonka candy bars and then theres the movie, but which came first? I have no clue! Definitely going to research that now haha..Also, while I was home a few weeks ago, I went mattress shopping with my mom for my brothers and was so overwhelmed about all the different options out there for mattresses...its kind of crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I want a king bad sooooooooo badly!!!! Being an adult is no fun. However, when we get a house that will be our first purchase. I cannot wait for it. You can still go to Europe, just like eat ramen for a month lol. Just kidding ramen is the worst. Our first big adult purchase was a washer and dryer. It hurt when the cc bill came due but the steam settings.......so worth it. The things we get excited about now.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh no! That stinks that all your hard work on that post is null now. :( Hopefully someone got to use that info before Disney shut down all those websites. Bummer!

    Also, congrats on the King bed!

    And finally, I totally assume death has happened if I don't hear back from Christopher. This is why if he gets busy at work he shoots me a text to say "hey, I just got slammed. If you don't hear back from me, that's why." because he knows I worry he's dead. (I wish I was joking). ha!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Actually laughing out loud at these. Especially Willy Wonka.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Seriously, what do you say when you ask someone if they like to read and they say no?! "Umm, okay then, bye!"? I mean I feel like it's pretty obvious when you ask that that you're gonna recommend a book so they should just say yeah just to avoid the awkwardness. Hahaha.

    I desperately want a king bed a new couch. Hopefully within the next year...crossing my fingers!

    ReplyDelete
  45. You are on my brainwaves today! Or...you were when you wrote this! So you're a trendsetter. Anyway, I just started keeping a list of "confessions" in my phone for an upcoming post. But mine won't be as funny as yours, unfortunately. On the flipside of a Sunday 30th - you can always go out on Saturday night and when the clock strikes midnight (and you've already had a few drinks and are feeling FESTIVE) you get to celebrate your ACTUAL birthday at midnight when you're out with friends already. So it's not that bad. And I really had to LOL at you being unable to pick out the state of Kentucky by its shape!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love that you looked ahead for your birthday day of the week - I do that sometimes too! But boo for it being a Sunday, how annoying that it's a leap year!

  47. These are too funny. The reindeer thing...bahahaha.

  48. I never know how to respond to people who say they don't like to read. What I want to say is "What is wrong with you?", but I don't. Also, I liked The Polar Bear King when I was younger. I haven't seen it ages though... Hope the book is good!

    ReplyDelete
  49. What kind of MONSTER doesn't like to read?!?! Blasphemy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Sharted is definitely an under-rated word. I wish more people used it more often, lol
    I just found out that reindeer were real a couple of years ago, bahahahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yall are going to enjoy all the room a king size bed has to offer, and you should totally go for a new couch if you're missing out on Europe next year. Being an adult does suck! I worry about my husband too when he doesn't contact me back when there was reasonable time for him to do it. I can't believe that audiobook was $30, a regular book doesn't even cost that much!

    ReplyDelete
  51. When I was teaching the states to my students I kept telling them that Kentucky was the one that looked like a fried chicken drumstick because well it kind of does & Kentucky Fried Chicken... they thought I was nuts. Also, my flippin fingers misspelled "drumstick" "because" "well" & oh the irony but "misspelled" #IQuit

    ReplyDelete
  52. Geography is not my thing, don't feel bad about not know what KY looked like. We used to have a full and switched to a California King and it was nothing short of amazing! You can find some decent comforter/ bed in a bag sets at TJ Maxx and bed, bath, and beyond (when on sale), for a really good price. I was blown away with how expensive the bedding was from a full to a king!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Eric and I usually don't talk/text while we're at work unless we have something important going on (like when we were in the initial stages of planning our New Mexico trip and I was texting him some stuff I found online) or we want to send each other Swag Codes for Swagbucks. I'm not kidding ... The last 3 texts between the two of us have been Swag Codes. Nothing else.

    A lot of the states near Nebraska are basically shaped the same. Colorado and Wyoming will always look like identical squares to me. I'm originally from West Virginia (maybe you knew that, maybe you didn't), and there is no question which state that is ... It's probably one of the easiest shapes to pick out! Haha.

    I've almost fallen in crow pose a few times (especially when I first started working on it!). I tried side crow at home once, and I literally tumbled out of it onto my shoulder/arm. I was like, "Well, I'm clearly not ready for this one yet!" I still haven't tried it again because I just don't think my arms are strong enough yet. Hopefully I'll get there one day.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have no idea what the shape of NSW looks like, and there's a lot less shapes of states here to learn. Speaking of states...I had an Aussie actually attempt to argue with me where Texas is located in the US. He said "it's in the Western portion of the US." I said "actually, it's smack dab in the center and south." He argued..."no...it's in the west...I mean there's all of those westerns set in Texas, why would they call them westerns, if Texas was just central and south?" I mean, that's a good question and all, but I do know where Texas is located. I mean, we all know Hollywood gets it totally correct all the time, so of course, Texas must be in the west, and I must be wrong.

  55. Ooh so much goodness in this post! I always think Conor is dead if I don't hear from him.... It's a problem!! My 30th is on a Saturday and next Saturday at that!!! And super huge bummer about your Disney post!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh man, nothing like a Sunday 30th birthday to make you feel old and lame. Haha! We don't have native reindeer in WA, but they are at farms and wildlife centers. We typically call them caribou, so maybe that's why you didn't know they were real? :) We skipped our annual vacation this year to buy a new mattress. It's lame. But we do sleep better!

    ReplyDelete
  57. You can still come to Europe and stay with ME! I'll even give you a bed to stay in instead of sticking you on the floor with a sleeping bag :) Haha.

    Also, the mistaken 't' in your email - DEAD. I am always worried I'll by mistake throw in a swear word to soemone who will judge me for it! xo

  58. Hahahaha....a $30 ebook? Um NOPE!! And yay to the King Bed! JB is 6'5 and likes to spread out so I'm super jealous right now....Girl you get that couch!

  59. I hate it when Leap Year messes up my birthday schedule, why is leap year even a thing?

    ReplyDelete
  60. LOL, you make me laugh. Yes, I knew reindeer are real - I ate reindeer once. I'm pretty sure it didn't have a red nose though ;-)

    My next birthday was SUPPOSED to be Friday the 13th, but stupid 2016 is a stupid leap year so now it's on a Saturday (I'm weird - I actually like my birthday to be Friday the 13th). Also, my 30th was on a Wednesday. Ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  61. dying...absolutely dying hahaha you crack me up - how are your funnies so on point?! :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I can't stop laughing over the sharted! Yesterday, I was talking to a student and was trying to say "After it started" and I totally said "After it farted". I was mortified! And I have to say that a 30th birthday on Sunday is better than like a Wednesday. And a king size bed?! Sounds ah-mazing!

    ReplyDelete
  63. OMG Such a fun post! I was laughing the whole time.. and seriously, picking out your state by shape? What do they think we are, geographers?!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hahaha I’m the exact same way when it comes to texting Brian. If it’s been a long time and out of the norm I start to panic…. complete stressor over here!

    ReplyDelete
  65. The sharted comment was hilarious! And you don't know what shape KY is???? Neither do I LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  66. These are too funny! I probably wouldn't be able to pick out the shape of Kentucky either. Good thing Florida has a very unique shape! So crazy that an audiobook was selling for $30! YEAH RIGHT!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Lmfao! Luckily Hawaii and Guam are easy to pick out. They're set apart from the rest of the states. Joey and I text/call each other all day. Usually we just text an 'I love you' or a kissy face emoji every hour or so. If he doesn't respond after a few minutes I'm blowing up his phone like a crazy person. And yes, being an adult totally sucks. I started Christmas shopping early this year and I'm working towards saving more money so we can finally plan our wedding, honeymoon, building our house, etc. which means no more taking days off, no more splurging on things I want (clothes, shoes, expensive food), more diys than purchases, etc.

  68. Leap year totally screwed me out of Halloween being on Sunday, dang it. That is way too much for an audiobook. Heck no!

  69. Bahaha ha! I'm dying. I love your confessions. I had so many thoughts as I was reading them but now I forgot them all. But I laughed the whole time. Thanks for sharing! :)

  70. Clearly I'm super late but you're adorable. Totally envious on the king bed. I've been wanting one for years but have never lived anywhere with the space for it.

    ReplyDelete
  71. OMG. I don't know if I've already told you this, but one day at work I was looking at something on my phone-it was she reads truth, and one of my co-workers goes, "you read?" And I was like umm what? Thinking she was asking if I read the SRT devotionals or something-- but no she meant I read in general... and I was like whaaaat, like how is that a question? Doesn't EVERYONE read? Even though I know they don't, but it's so weird when something that is so natural and normal to you, someone else doesn't do. Your story about your co-worker not reading made me think of that, haha. And LOL at the reindeers, I can totally see how they seem kind of mythical... we always had them at petting zoos and other random places growing up in a basically winter tundra of Michigan, haha.

Thank you so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger.
