Friday… Time to confess.

Oh, hello, Friday.  I’ve been so looking forward to you!

I’ve got a pretty low-key weekend on deck, and I simply can’t wait for going-home-time so that it can commence!

But first… Time to confess…

friday confessional

Linking up with Aubrey @ High-Heeled Love!

I confess…that I already feel better about getting myself back on track with food after writing yesterday’s post.  I’ve learned over the years that if something is bothering me, it usually feels better after I’ve written it down.  I had a good day with food yesterday – and I’m confident I can carry that through into the weekend.

I confess… that weekends are always more difficult to eat clean & healthy, but with this new resolve, I’m absolutely positive I can make it through unscathed by the junk-food demons!

I confess… that my main hurdle this week will be a little boy’s birthday party!  My cousin Dillon turned 2 yesterday, so we’ll be joining his big birthday celebration on Saturday.  Birthday parties = party food… one of my biggest nemesis.  But my goal is to just be conscious of it and watch my portions.  I’ve let that get away from me a bit in the past month; it’s time to focus on it again.

I confess… the Baby Fever is burning up again after I got to snuggle with sweet little Baby Ryder last night!  My sister-in-law Amanda’s twin, Steph, and her hubby, Troy, welcomed their first child the day before my birthday, and I was so excited to finally meet him last night!  He’s one blond-haired little cutie!  Someone… get me a baby, STAT!!!!

I confess… that I was also happy to hang out with my adorable niece Nevie and see all of her new tricks.  Blowing big juicy kisses and snapping her fingers while she dances are my current faves. ;)  I also love that she woofs at her new baby cousin, while her mommy explains, “He’s a baby, not a puppy.”

I confess… that I might have a problem.  And that problem is falling in love with TV criminals.  First it was Michael and Lincoln from Prison Break; now it’s Dexter.  I’ve told a few people now that I kind of love Dexter, and the standard question has been, “Isn’t he a serial killer?”  To which I reply, “Yes, but he’s a GOOD serial killer.”  Ah, how I adore my lovable criminals…

Dexter-Morgan

I confess… that you know you’re old whennnn… the reason you’re looking forward to Friday night is because you know you’ve got Season 2 of Dexter waiting for you when you get home, and you plan on spending alllll night with him.

I confess… that when I saw a few friends posting their favourite Elvis songs on Facebook this morning in honour of the 36th anniversary of his death, I had to stop and think of what my favourite Elvis song is.  And I honestly don’t think I can pick just one.  There are just too many to choose from, and at different times in my life, I’ve had different answers - “All Shook Up”, “Suspicious Minds”, “If I Can Dream”, “Burning Love”, “Can’t Help Falling In Love”, “Little Sister”, “Promised Land”, “Heartbreak Hotel”, “Blue Suede Shoes”… I think I’ve called each of them my favourite at some point in time.  But this morning, this is the one that jumped out at me… I’m not sure it’s the song so much as the sexiness that he oozes in this performance from the ‘68 Comeback Special, but… well, let’s just say watching this started my morning off right!

Happy Friday, friends!  Have a GREAT weekend! :)

You do like the dark criminal type huh? ;) Hey as long as you keep that like to fake criminal types and don't end up with one in real life.

I always over eat at parties too, there is always just so many fun snacky foods that I don't often eat so it is easy to want them all, but yea not good.

I have never seen Dexter. Is it something that I would have to watch in daylight for fear of nightmares? I admit, I have to do that with Game of Thrones, because, the violence is a bit much. Good thing we own our home. I guess my nightmares could wake the dead, no pun intended! Have to find it on my Netflix! Hope that you have a great weekend!
