Friday. The day to confess.

FRIDAYYYYYYYY!!!  My favourite day of the week!!!

Let’s get some the confessions out of the way before the weekend commences, shall we?

Friday confessional high heeled love 

Linking up with Aubrey @ High-Heeled Love :)

I confess… that I didn’t think they could top Channing Tatum for Sexiest Man Alive this year.  I was so excited when he was given the prestigious title from People last year, and I seriously doubted whoever followed could match up.  But I was wrong.


I confess… that hearing the news on the radio this morning that Adam Levine is the successor to the Sexiest Man Alive throne was pretty much the best possible way to start a Friday.  Couldn’t agree more.  Adam is so so SO sexy.  And also the main reason I’m still watching The Voice.

I confess… that I’m fighting an internal struggle this week.  You see, I’ve gotten in the habit of not going out anymore.  A good Friday or Saturday night for me now consists of my pj’s, the couch, and either a movie, a hockey game, or the PVR.  I have zero desire to go out like I used to.  The problem is the fact that my living room does not happen to be filled with eligible handsome bachelors…  which makes the whole “meet a man & have babies” plan rather difficult to achieve.  SO I need to force myself to go out.  Even though I really don’t want to. bah.

I confess… that tonight I’m going to Girls Gals G’Dolls, which is a ladies night that our local Lionettes host.  Um.  Probably not going to help me with my plan up there, either.  But at least I won’t be on my couch, or wearing pajamas.  Baby steps.

I confess… that I felt all accomplished for buying two small Christmas gifts last weekend, and really felt “ahead of the game” this year, especially since I have my list made and know pretty much exactly what I’m getting everyone.  But now, a week later, I’m all like “AHHHHHHHHHH CHRISTMAS IS 40 DAYS AWAY AND I HAVE 2% OF MY SHOPPING DONE AND NO BAKING SUPPLIES AND NO MONEY AND WHAT THE HELL AM I GOING TO DO?!?!?!?!??!?!”  Ah, what a difference a week makes.

I confess… that the time is coming when I get jealous of Americans because they get to have Thanksgiving soon.  I really think we should all get two Thanksgivings.  It’s only fair.

I confess… that I’ve made it a personal goal right now to work on not being jealous of others.  I like to think I’m a happy person who doesn’t get bitter when others have or do things that I don’t have or can’t do, but it’s just not true.  The green-eyed monster gets the best of me more often than I’d like to admit.  And I know I can’t make it go away completely, but I’m going to try and focus on recognizing it, and telling it to go away – I have plenty to be thankful for, and that’s all that matters.  It’s on my list of “self-improvement goals” to work on.

*EDIT* I realized after posting this that I unknowingly said I was jealous of Americans, then in the next breath said I’m going to try stop being jealous of people.  Whoops.  bahahahahahaha!!!!

I confess… that I’m stumped with trying to find new/different Christmas baking recipes to try out this year.  For the past few years, I’ve made the same things, and none of it is spectacular.  And there’s no point in trying to make the stuff that my mother already does so well – why attempt to re-invent the wheel?  But every Pinterest recipe or collection I pin either doesn’t live up to my expectations, or it’s something my mom already does.  Totally, completely stumped.


I confess… that I’ll probably just end up making bark again this year.  Melting chocolate and swirling things in it seems to be the only kind of Christmas “baking” I have any success with!

Peppermint Bark

I confess… that I’m already looking ahead to next weekend, because I plan on putting up my Christmas decorations.  This will be the earliest I’ve ever done it.  But I just can’t hold back any longer this year.  I feel like Christmas joy is just flowing through my veins and I.can’t.WAIT!!!!!!

Have fun tonight, unfortunately, I will be in my jammies and in bed probably before the event even starts!!

Good for you getting out there--even if the evening mostly promises girls. There are times when I wish I had a more active social life, but then the sweats and the couch with my guys has it's appeal too.

Nicole said...

that bark looks yummy! And the cool thing about your Thanksgiving is the fact that you don't get belittled for singing Christmas music before Thanksgiving :). It's early enough in the year most people aren't quite there yet :)

I am so boring and would never have considered a bad boy in my pre-marriage days, but there is just something about Adam Levine and his bad boy air that is appealing!

Also, I make these Butterfinger bars that only have 3 ingredients and they are so good, you could totally do them!

Adam Levine is much sexier than Channing Tatum. Yum.

As far as your shopping goes, why not do it online if you have your list made out. I like to use ebates so I get a little cash back on my shopping.(

I confess that I struggle with the jealousy thing a lot. It's one of my biggest insecurities....which would probably make a good blog post sometime.

Thanks for linking up for Friday Confessional!
