Fess Up.

It's Friday, my boss is out of town until next Tuesday, and that only means one thing: half day at work :)
Linking up with Leslie  for Confessional Friday, these are my confessions:
I confess:
:: I have driven into work wayyy too much the past two weeks. Parking in downtown Chicago is NOT cheap.
:: I seriously have the best acupuncturist ever! She has helped me out with so much and I have so gained so much knowledge about my body and health/beauty regimens. You should all check out Jenny's blog and have a look. I promise you'll learn something great!
:: I just learned about "oil pulling" and will be trying this health regimen out this weekend. I knew I bought that tub of coconut oil for a reason!
:: I am excited to try out all of the crock pot recipe suggestions I got from some of my fellow bloggers. I will be buying the ingredients I need and will be attempting the recipes next week.
:: I think it is wayyyy too early for stores to be selling bathing suits and sandals already. C'mon! We haven't even had the worst of winter yet.
:: I plan on doing some much needed retail therapy this weekend. Watch out, credit card!
:: I am literally counting down the days until summer. Words will never express just how much I hate winter AND spring. April showers bring May flowers? Yeah, no. Not here. Shove those flowers up your frigid cold ass. Give me my 85 degree weather and a beach, thanks.
:: I have been itching to take a trip to Disney World lol. Seriously. I've been telling my roommate for the past two weeks that we need to go back. Road trip this summer?
:: I need a major cuddle session with Mr. Firefighter. He started a new job with a new fire department earlier this month and his schedule has been ridiculous. This has led me to be very cranky and bratty.
I am excited for my date night with one of my best friends, Maria, tonight. Every Friday when I head home to visit my parents, I make it a priority to have a coffee/movie date with my girls from back home. I think today will be our last Friday date night for a looooonnnng time because Maria will be starting dental assistant school for 8 months and it interferes with girl time :( But I'm SO proud of her and know she's going to do GREAT. Get it, girl!
So on another note, Valentines' Day is coming up. How do you girls celebrate? Do you like to go out and do something, stay in, go out that weekend? Last Valentine's wasn't so great. My grandpa passed away that week and it had me in the worst of moods. And this year, I have no idea what's going to happen. I kind of want to just skip over the holiday. Let's celebrate my birthday instead :)
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!


  1. Ahh I want to go shopping so bad but I put myself on a ban until March! Have fun!
    I prefer to go out and do something, either see a live show or a nice dinner or something. I know a lot of people who like to skip over it though!

  2. I don't even have an actupunturist- does that make me totally gross? And oh my gosh that tub of coconut oil sounds absolutely amazing. Just found your blog and I'm so excited to get to know you better. Hope you don't mind if I follow along!
