Another round of confessions

Yay, Wednesday. One day closer to the weekend. Because I had a 4.5 day week, then vacation, then 1 day week, then 3 day week, a 5 day week is really rough you guys. Life is hard. Linking up with Kathy & Nadine to make it better.

More Coffee Less Talky

Every time I see a number on caller ID at work that it starts with 614 I get super excited and think someone is calling me from Australia. Not that anyone in Australia has my work number but still, I hope. It never is, shockingly.


Why do I think that? Our country code is 61 and all of our mobile numbers start with 04. So if a mobile number was something like 0407 123 123 it would show up as 614 0712 3123.

I was leaving the gym the other day and these girls were talking to each other: I literally sat there for 3 hours. I literally called him and was literally like what? I literally hate the gym. I literally can't wait for Christmas, I'm literally so excited. I literally wanted to smack them with a dictionary. Although I know now it apparently accounts for the 'informal' aka incorrect use of the word.


I will always think of him as Knightley (from Emma).

On Monday, I went to read all the blogs and I accidentally clicked 'mark all as read'. Oops. I had not read any. So I tried to open all the ones I was pretty sure I hadn't read, but I definitely did not read them all. Why is there no undo button?!


We still haven't put our tree up, and I'm not really feeling it. Mainly because Millie climbs the tree and endangers all the ornaments (and herself), mainly because eh.


I got SO many emails around black Friday and cyber Monday, from shops I had unsubscribed from, from shops I never shopped at, places I'd never signed up for emails, from shops I'd already ordered stuff from.. I wish I could explain, seriously it was insane.


Like, how did they all find me?

I finally got back on the scale last Monday and expected to see an extra 5-10 lbs after Disney (and Thanksgiving), but nope, I'm still under 'that weight'.


Our cruise is officially booked which means I have just over 6 months to get ready.


Because, I'm going to spend 7 days eating all the food and drinking all the cocktails.


I'm not even a little bit joking. I love a good cocktail. The fruitier the better. Yum. Can't wait.

I think we are staying in for NYE again and I don't even mind.


Any plans for New Years?

  1. Staying in for NYE is often how I celebrate as well, because all those people out and about, no thank you!

  2. This last season of ladies of London I noticed them says literally a lot, it was a little annoying. I have totally done that before with the mark all read, oops. I plan to drink all the cocktails this weekend in Maine!

  3. Oh literally and girls, just oh my. No words, no words.

    I hear you on the emails, I received SOOOOO many from random stores I was like what the what?!?! And I also hear you on the tree. I think I'm the one other blogger and person on Facebook who hasn't decorated the apt fully, glad I'm not alone ;)!

  4. Haha I LITERALLY cannot believe those girls ;) Sometimes when I eavesdrop on conversations I'm scared for society lol. Ugh, the email thing... I got 340 emails about sales for Black Friday. I didn't read one of them. I don't know how they found me!! Yay for still being under your goal weight girl, so proud!! You'll be cruise ready before you know it! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  5. i can't stand the way most women talk which is why i never engage in any office talk/gossip or talk to strangers or small talk of any kind. just STFU, thanks. it's the #1 reason i hate reality shows - bitches run their mouth and talk shit and it irritates my ears.

    YOU GO with the scale and staying under...that's so amazing! keep up the awesome gym game.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I literally hate it when people talk like that ;) I'm probably going to be visiting Dan's family for New Year's Eve. I'm not a big partier for that holiday so we usually stay in!

    ReplyDelete
  7. We often stay in for New Years and we probably will this year too...by the end of the Christmas season we are just partied out :) But then again we usually have big annual parties on the 29th and 30th so the 31st is more like a recovery night ;) I'm with you on this week - come ON weekend!!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Ughhh bitches be crazy. We have two opening spots for appraisers in my office right now and I have been the only girl for 2 and a half years. I am terrified of getting another one in there and she literally be the most annoying thing ever. Five day work weeks are so tough. Why cant we have 3 or 4 day work weeks every week? We would probably bitch about those too though, wouldn't we? We will be in Gatlinburg for NYE!!! I am sure we will be staying in the chalet that night and setting off fire works and eating all of the things.

  9. My plans are to stay in with my family, and pretty much not do anything else for the whole month haha!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh man all of the emails about the deals--there were SO many! We went for a hike and I didnt have my phone for a little over an hour and had another 20 emails waiting for me. Whaaaaaat??? I LITERALLY fell out of my chair (except not really) hahah--those girls sounded like they were gems...just gems!
    There would be an undo button for making all of the blogs as read!
    Hope you're having a great week, minus it being a full week...waaah

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hhahahaha, people go out for NYE? No, thanks -- just give me a bottle of champagne and some cheese and crackers (like an entire plate) and I'll be good. Yay for cruises and cocktails!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm with you on NYE...anytime I wind up going out it's usually overpriced/overcrowded and never as fun as it's built up to be, so I think T and I are probably staying in this year (though I will still be wearing ALL the sparkles, of course!).

    ReplyDelete
  13. so many emails for black friday. i could barely handle it. also i'm DYING over the reza gif and i'm copying that to use it in at least 2 conversations today. ha. bc yes. i love staying in for NYE btw. so overrated! i just wanna get drunk at home dammit. ha

  14. You're absolutely right about the emails! So annoying. I've been on an unsubscribe binge for the last week or two. Every time I get a new one I unsubscribe but I feel like they're never-ending!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I hate marking read all on Bloglovin! It happens far more frequently than I would like to admit too. I wish they included an extra step like "Are you REALLY sure you want to mark all as read?" But since they never seem to include updates that are useful, I'll keep dreaming.

    ReplyDelete
  16. The emails are the worst. I feel like I'm constantly unsubscribing, but more show up. My inbox is a joke.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I put ours up, the cats started fighting inside of it, so I took it back down. Now I wish I had one up.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ugh to the emails! But married life is going to = a new email address for me and I cannot wait. Freedom from all the emails!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think we will be staying in for NYE, because we are old and boring haha. I actually fell asleep last year before midnight so I think that might be the case again this year.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Black Friday and Cyber Monday emails were OUT OF CONTROL. I don't need 55 emails from Loft letting me know they're having a sale - they're always having a sale! I need to start exercising the unsubscribe button more often.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have done that before too with Bloglovin and I agree there should be an undo button!
    For New Years I think TJ and I have just decided to stay in, but we'll see....

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am so nervous this year for our tree because of our 1 year old puppy. Last year she was too little to care about the tree, but now she's a 60lb destro-woman with a tail like a baseball bat! lol

    ReplyDelete
  23. I too haven't put up my tree yet. I was planning on during it over the weekend but ran out of time. To be honest, I too am just not feeling it. It's so much work. haha I'm just being lazy.

    ReplyDelete
  24. That Liz Lemon gif at the end is my favorite gif of all time! I use that quote all the time, haha! My email was inundated with sales too and I was so overwhelmed...I probably only read 10% of them and deleted the rest.

    ReplyDelete
  25. We always stay in for NYE, we usually have dinner or something at home.

    Literally is a joke in my group of friends. We all overuse it and use it incorrectly on purpose, stemming from someone who wouldn't stop saying it at my wedding. So if someone were to hear us talking they'd think we were total aholes.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I hate the way people over use "literally" hate it. I plan to be eating my way through the holidays!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh my gosh - my email was RIDICULOUS - I opened it up & had over 400 unread emails. I thought I had passed out for a few days or something

    ReplyDelete
  28. A Summer Roberts gif for the win! And I'm scared for the education system of our country when I hear teenagers talk. You will never catch me saying literally or can't even :-P

  29. 5 Day weeks are practically impossible this time of year. Thankfully we have Wednesdays to confess and link-up while we had Cyber Monday to shop and ignore our work and budgets. Technically it looks like 3 days to me. We just booked a trip for over 6 months out and I can't wait! I've never bought anything travel related this far in advance! :) Lookout gym, I'm going to be spending a lot of time with you!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I want to go on a cruise so bad!

    I'm ready for the weekend too. I just had a week & a half off & will have 2 weeks off in a few weeks but have been ready for another break since Monday.

    Woo hoo to staying under the weight!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Bahaha - I love overhearing gym conversations. People need a vocabulary lesson. Hooray that your cruise is all booked! Don't be so hard on yourself, girlfriend - you look amazing no matter what! And, we're all for staying in on NYE - Ryan has to work 12 hours that day, so by the time he gets home I just want pizza in front of the TV.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh gosh I think I'm guilty of the "literally" word, but I try to be conscious of it!! I'm dying over the area code thing - I'd totally be the same way too! We still don't know what we're doing for NYE but pulling for a dinner out and ringing the new year in! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

    ReplyDelete
  33. "I literally wanted to smack them with a dictionary." BAHAHAHA! I love it!
    OMG the amount of e-mails I've been getting since Black Friday is seriously out of control. It's driving me bonkers!!!!!!!!!!!
    We have a NYE wedding this year and I'm so excited, because otherwise I usually stay in, too!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I unsubscribed to A TON of emails within the past few months, and I got emails from ALL those places again this past weekend, too!! Leave. Me. Alone. My finger hurts from swiping to delete so much. ;)

    Have you ever watched Parks and Rec? There's a character on there who always adds the word "literally" and the way he says it is hilarious. My husband and I say literally a lot, BUT only as a joke and with the inflection his character uses. Promise. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgnxlpSQgqg

  35. Loving your confessions today! Get that tree up, girl!!! ;) I feel very ON my Christmas-game this year which is not normal but it's been fun feeling festive already! The past 2 years we haven't done anything for NYE so I kinda' haven't even thought about it for this year.... Hm, most likely a night in! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. If we didn't have a six year old I could go without a Christmas tree, I always take them down on Christmas day anyway.

    I couldn't believe the number of emails I got Thursday-Monday last week, it was insane!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I had wayyyy too many cyber monday emails. Some shops emailed me like 3 times about it... like I get it already ahha!

  38. Can we have a girl's sleepover on NYE or something? Like straight up PJS and wine? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yay for cruise booking! We put our tree up and Brady is obsessed with it - I caught him running around with an ornament ball in his mouth yesterday morning and had to bribe him with food to get him to drop it lol it's going to be a long month!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yay for booking your cruise! Can't wait to see what you think of cruising! I couldn't believe how many emails I got on Black Friday-Cyber Monday. It was so crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  41. NYE is overrated. And so is decorating. Bahumbug!

    ReplyDelete
  42. (not sure if you know this yet or not...) For 3 years, I lived in a tiny apartment in Kirribilli. I got to stay home, watch the Sydney fireworks from my bedroom window in my pjs, and it was the 3 best NYEs ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Where are you cruisin' too? I think I missed this part of the announcement.

    ReplyDelete
  43. We never go out for NYE!! It's too crazy, we only go somewhere if someone is hosting a party or dinner. We have not had an actual (real sized) Christmas tree since we have dated...but we have 3 boxes of decorations :) It's too much work and we just don't really care. We are bahumbugs :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. My husband and I rarely do anything for NYE either. We saw Mama Mia one year at Whitney Hall on NYE and we had a midnight countdown and toast with the cast which was fun. Sometimes we go to movies and get home in time to watch Anderson Cooper and that redheaded comedian do the ball drop thing on CNN. Once upon a time, I thought I would like to do Times Square, but I abandoned that crazy notion a long time ago.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yeah, I don't care if descriptivists say "literally" can now literally mean figuratively, it's still annoying when people say it 100x per sentence. There are other words that indicate emphasis, ladies. Sheesh.
    My place is too small for a Christmas tree, and so was my last apartment. The first year I was a little sad about it and ended up getting a little 2-foot potted tree, but by now I'm glad I don't have to deal with the hassle (or vacuuming up the pine needles). I put out my Santas and snowmen and poinsettia and Christmas candles and it took me all of 10 minutes on Black Friday. Aaaaand done.
    Sigh, now I want a fruity cocktail. Will tell you my NYE plans when you email back to this!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ugh that girl conversation would leave me rolling my eyes too. Lol. That's awesome news no extra weight from your Disney trip. Actually sounds like a miracle for any vacation but I guess all the walking helped counteract the eating and drinking. Cheers to that!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I have always been terrified of having a cat that climbs Christmas trees! Thankfully none have so far! And finally the breastfeeding weight loss has kicked in for me, so yay for losing weight over the holidays!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I can't handle the "literally" situation at all! It has to stop. My inbox was crazy on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and I spent all day yesterday unsubscribing from 80% of them. Ha! We've stayed in for NYE since our oldest kid was born 7 years ago. It's really hard to get a babysitter and since it's also the most dangerous night to go out, I just don't feel like it. Maybe one day we'll host a party instead.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Staying in for NYE is my jam. It is one of my least favorite holidays for sure so just staying in and ordering food makes it awesome.

    The number of emails I got for Black Friday stuff was SO annoying. It was horrible.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ha ha, I think of him as Knightley, too, and I haven't even started thinking about NYE...

    ReplyDelete
  51. Now I'm paranoid I'm going to use literally in every sentence, lol. IDK what I'm doing for NYE but staying in sounds like a jam. Same thing with the Black Friday emails...seriously can't we just be left alone! I haven't put mine up, yet either. No cats...just lazy but almost all of my stuff is actually in my apartment waiting for me to put it up, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  52. omg "literally" is my biggest pet peeve. LITERALLY! hehe. and vocal fry--look that up. drives me insane.

    ReplyDelete
  53. We don't even have a tree ... Or any real Christmas decorations. Sometimes I think we're complete scrooges, but really I think that since we still live in an apartment and don't really have the space to store holiday decorations when they're not in use, we've just never bothered to stock up on that stuff. (We actually have a decent amount of storage space in our apartment, but we just have so much random crap that we need to eventually sort through that most of the storage space is taken. Whomp whomp.)

    I love food and cocktails too. And isn't that the point of a cruise anyway? :-)

    We mostly stay in for NYE every year. I say "mostly" because we always go out for a nice dinner, but then we come home and drink wine in front of the fireplace. It's fun and relaxing, and we don't have to deal with other annoying drunk people. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Haha I think that we're staying in for NYE because we have to drive to visit family the next day, but sometimes that's more fun because you don't have to worry about driving! I don't know what I'd do if I had a kitty that liked to play with ornaments, I guess I'm lucky that Dart doesn't really care about it. I just love seeing it up and lit everyday!

    ReplyDelete
  55. haha that 'mark as read' happened to me twice. I couldn't believe it lol oh well! clean slate! And I think we're also staying in for NYE which I always hate the thought of but enjoy immensely when it comes to it :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. The mark all as read thing happened to me before. I secretly giggled. shhhh

    Also... umm I have a very terrible, bad, bad, awful, disgusting, shoot-me-now habit of saying literally all the time. Literally. whoops :(

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm definitely guilty of using literally in sentences. Not that bad. But it's there. Sometimes I wonder how my vocabulary has digressed so much even though I know so many more words than I use. I wasn't going to do anything for New Year's eve but after two crappy new years I didn't want to give up this year. I want to go out in style and make up for the last two years. So big party in the city for me. I just need to find a damn dress now...

    ReplyDelete
  58. One of my besties here hates the world "literally"... mostly because people rarely mean it when they say it. So it just grates on her. Which naturally means some of the guys in our social group say it constantly around her just to annoy her. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  59. No NYE plans yet. I'll probably be super lame and hang out in my living room with my cats. Oh wait...I mean, be super awesome.

    I imagined you wearing a tin foil hat and looking around crazily when I read the words "Like, how did they all find me?" It was pretty funny.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Ok, I'm behind from being out of blog land...where are you going on a cruise!???

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh my gosh, I say literally way too much-- though I don't think I'm as bad as those girls you overheard at the gym, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  62. A cocktail always makes things better. I plan on going to a friend's house for New Year's. I'm with you on the email thing. It's been crazy during the holidays.

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.
