confessional friday

Whatever I write here is really pointless. I know y'all are all reading this for the confessions, so to refrain from sounding like the pastor who makes too many jokes at a wedding, I'll curtail my witty opening banter. ;)

//1. I confess made some healthy-ish Weight Watchers chocolate chip cookies yesterday [because, let's be honest, a sister just needed some freshly-baked chocolate goodness yesterday] and they were ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD! Of course, I might have put a teensy bit more chocolate chips than what they called for. Eh, tablespoons, schmablespoons.

//2. I confess that this cardigan has been haunting me for the last week. It's popped up in 3 different blog posts from different bloggers. 1) It's a cardigan, duh. 2) It's in my favorite colors. 3) It's way too expensive. #myperpetualstruggle

//3. I confess that I kind of felt bad for my department's director at work yesterday. My 9-months-pregnant-going-on-maternity-leave-soon boss decided to prank him that she was going in to labor. I'll admit I went along with it because it was funny. 

And don't get me was hilarious. And he was a great sport about it. But now I sort of feel sorry for him. Poor guy. The look on his face. 

//4. I confess that I've got an unnatural obsession with the task of finding a pair of brown riding boots this fall. I don't have any. I need wide-calf boots, I think. But not wide width boots and apparently there is a difference?!? Any suggestions?

//5. I confess that I'm almost 90% sure I've figured out what I'll be for Halloween. I'll give the full deets later on, but let's just say that it will involve a wig, some props and me staying in character all night. I. CAN'T. WAIT.

//6. I confess that I have absolutely no explanation for why I love this Halloween costume so much.

//7. After that...I have nothing else for you. 

Have a wonderful weekend! I'm linking up with Leslie at A Blonde Ambition. View the other confessions here.



  1. What is that costume??? Is it a turkey?
    And I can't wait to hear what you'll be for Halloween. I'm at a loss, myself. Will you be sharing before the big day?

    1. Yes, it's a turkey!!

      I thought Amie said you'd already figured yours out?? Yes, I'll be sharing. I'm thinking of dedicating an entire post to it. It will make sense when you see... Or should I keep it a secret?

  2. I love my Bare Traps boots! So comfy and well made. Here are their brown riding boots:,300040&isBrand=y&categoryName=women

  3. As someone who used to ride horses, go to an equestrian shop, or buy from Ariat or Dover.

  4. I buy my boots from plus size stores for the wide calf. Check out Lane Bryant, Onestopplus or DUO. Google wide calf boots and you will find a bunch of sites.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
