Ah, another weekend is upon us. So of course, we can’t start the weekend off without a little Friday ‘fessin up, can we?
Linking up with Housewife Eclectic while Mamarazzi is taking a blog break.
I confess…that I’m going to see Breaking Dawn Part 1 again tonight. And I alllllmost had that fact hidden from my family. Until I mentioned going to the movies the other night when Luke & Amanda were at Mom’s for supper, and Amanda said, “What movie are you going to see?” I sheepishly confessed that we were going to see Breaking Dawn again, and got totally blasted by my mom and brother. They just don’t understand.
I confess…that I’m really dedicated to Christmas. Like, really dedicated. How dedicated am I? Well, I have a door between my living room and dining room with 15 little panes of glass in it. Every year, I take a few days to cut out snowflakes to stick on them. Last night, I cut out all 15 of those snowflakes in one hour-and-a-half sitting, which resulted in a blister on my thumb from the scissors. Christmas better thank me for being so damned dedicated.
I confess…that I get competitive with my snowflakes. The first one is usually pretty crappy, because I always forget how to make them, but then I start one-upping myself with each new snowflake created. Until I developed the blister. They kind of got crappy again after that.
I confess…that the perfect remedy to a sort-of-glum morning is Chez 106.1 playing “Start Me Up” by the Stones. Perked me right up. Thanks, Chez.
I confess…that I was ecstatically happy last night when our Zumba instructor let us just dance instead of using the damned sticks. God, I hated those things.
I confess…that I made a grocery and Christmas shopping list last night, and it appears this weekend I’m going to spend more money on chocolate to make cookie bark, fudge, and other Christmas treats than on anything else. To give away, not to eat myself. Don’t worry.
I confess…that it was another snowy morning in my little slip-on Skechers. Cold, wet feet don’t help start the day off the greatest. So yes. Boots are also on the list of “things to buy this weekend.” And Santa is going to refund me for them, so bonus!
I confess…that yesterday wasn’t the best day of my life. But to prove that small things mean the world: My friend and co-worker Jared came back from Christmas shopping yesterday and presented his sister Lindsay (also my friend and co-worker) with a Chocolate Advent Calendar. I have had one of these every year of my life I think, but this year I never picked one up. Upon realizing yesterday was December 1st and I had no calendar, I consoled myself by thinking, “Hey, you can’t eat chocolate anyways. NO, not even a teeny-tiny square.” As it turns out, Lindsay already had a calendar, so she offered this one to me. And just like that, my heart grew two sizes too big. (Thanks, Linds & Jared!)
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy getting into the Christmas spirit! :)
