Friday Confessions: Christmas Parties, No Booze, and Bieber or Elvis. It’s a dilemma.

I haven’t done any Friday confessing for a while, so I think it’s time to purge.  Get all the deep, dark secrets (or just the silly stuff) out before the weekend begins.  Ready?

Linking up with Housewife Eclectic, who is taking over Friday Confessions while Mamarazzi is on a bloggy break.


I confess…that all the hard work you guys did yesterday in helping me choose a new pair of boots was very much appreciated.  I ended up settling on the first pair, only to find out that they don’t have it available in my size.  Awesome.

I confess…that some days, I hate Sears.  Don’t even ask me about my couch cushion situation.

I confess…that I’m wildly excited to dig out my Christmas decorations and put up my Christmas tree this weekend.  Can’t.WAIT.

Christmas-Decorations If only I had a fireplace…*sigh*

I confess…that I did not enjoy using the toning sticks at Zumba last night.  I sweat my ass off, and that’s obviously a good thing, but I felt entirely uncoordinated, and kept hitting myself in the head with the sticks.  PLUS, they felt like they weighed about 25 lbs. each instead of 2.5 lbs. by the time I was done.  Mothereffers.

I confess…I’m a little worried about the company Christmas party tonight.  Christmas parties are very hard on the diet.  Thinking of the spread we had last year already has me drooling.  It’s going to be a challenge.  But I might as well get used to it, right?  The month of December is only going to get more difficult.

I confess…that giving up the booze is not a big deal for me.  Truthfully, I’d rather allocate those valuable calories towards yummy food.  I’m trading my rum & cokes for dessert tonight.  So sue me.

I confess…that I was super excited to package up my gifts for the “Favourite Things” Christmas Blog Swap hosted by Leigh and Lindsay, and the “Accessorize Me” Blog Swap hosted by Lena @ Mom2MemphisAndRuby last night.  I’m sending them out in the mail today.  Really hoping Brittany & Lisa like them!!  My very first blog swaps!!

I confess…that I’m having a hard time deciding what to listen to while putting up the Christmas Tree tomorrow.  Bieber or Elvis Christmas duets.  I realize that this is a conundrum that a normal person does not have.

Elvis or bieber

I confess…that I already have plans to go see Breaking Dawn Part 1 again.  I’m excited.  Almost as excited as I was the first time.

I confess…that I spend an abnormal amount of time looking at the picture of Chris Neil and I.  You guys probably have, too, since I posted it three times this week.  Sorry.  But I don’t often have my arms around a hot hockey player.  It was a special moment.

And, just because I can, here it is, one more time:

I hear ya on the diet, December is going to be hard. We'll have to get Nick to sell Molson 67 at Gavans! But just so you know, white rum has 69 calories for 1 shot, then add diet coke and its really not that bad!

That's my little diet tip of the day! haha

I broke down and bought the Beiber Christmas CD as a stocking stuffer last night. She wants his perfume too but at 52 bucks a bottle it's too rich for my blood..LOL

I don't think anyone could be as happy as that woman to exercise, dancing or not.

We did our christmas decorations and tree today! I felt the same way last year about not having a fire place. We actually went out to Home Depot and bought an electric one for like $300. It's awesome, looks similar to the one in your photo! We can adjust the flame with a remote.. it's not real but it's as close it comes I guess.

Elvis. Elvis. Elvis. Have you gone mad, Miss Jillian?

Debra said...

I want to go see Breaking Dawn part 1 again. Oh man. Your boots post had me in love with all the amazing boots!

I decorated up my parents fireplace one time, but if you actually use it as a fire place... it will melt the garland, just saying. I think those magazines are either fake fires or fake photos!
