instafessional friday

I had so much comment love from last week's Confessional Friday post that I've decided to combine my two favorite Friday posts; Confessional Friday and InstaFriday.

So, dear readers, because of my love of compound, non-sensical words, I give you...

Confession #1 - I bought the cutest box of Christmas cards, signed them, sealed them and addressed them last week. They have yet to actually be stamped and sent and at this point, they won't. So, it least it looks like I've got a MAJOR head start on next year's cards!

Confession #2 - I painted my nails twice this week. Both times it was a colored polish with glittery ring fingers. Yeah, it's BOOM!

 Confession #3 - I went into work EXTRA early this week so I'd be able to leave early on Thursday to start my Christmas vacation early.

Confession #4 - I attempted to make Pretzel Hugs twice this week and both times had tragic consequences. The first time, I couldn't find Hershey's HUGS, so I used Hershey's KISSES and, well, yeah, I definitely burned those suckers. The second time, I guess they didn't melt enough because even though they looked pretty, they didn't stick to the pretzels and the result was essentially a build-your-own Pretzel Hug sandwich. Ugh. And, I've made these successfully before!

Confession #5 - I like when I take non-serious, funny face photos of myself way better than serious photos. Here are two that my friend Cara and I took this past week.

Confession #6 - I may or may not be obsessed with coordinating my gift wrap to my tree and coordinating my gift wrap with my other gift wrap. They are all in the same color family and theme. You won't see me mixing wrapping paper up in my crib!

And finally, another picture. I don't really have a confession to go along with it, but I wanted to share it with you. I took this at a place in Wilmington called the Cotton Exchange. It's a cool group of old granary and mill buildings in the historic district downtown that have been turned into a bunch of cool shops and restaurants. I think their decor in this outdoor courtyard looked downright Dickens, don't you?

Well, that's it for today's Instafessional Friday! Join me next week for another installment!!

Merry Christmas!
