Confessional Thursday!

Hey Pretty People! Its that time of the week again to link up with Jess and get those confessions off your chest!
** Something is going on with my stomach/upper gi tract. Every day this week I've had really bad hiccups, my stomach gets bloated for no reason and I am feeling like a general hot mess y'all! Has this stopped me from eating? No, I don't think anything is ever going to stop that haha! But I have been taking all sorts of otc meds and its not doing the job. TMI? Probably. I would like to know though if anyone else has gotten hiccups five days in a row though....

** I don't like drinking out of the lid on Yeti cups. The plastic just feels weird on my lips and so every time I carry this cup, I take the lid off as soon as I get to work.

** Is it weird to order your own birthday cake? We're spending my birthday at the lake with friends and I want a Kate Spade-esque, red velvet cake with gold candles. I only turn 30 once so I want it to be fabulous :)

** I made this recipe from Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers on Monday and I am still thinking about it! Never in my life have I cooked red or purple cabbage, but damn it was good! We enjoy a good meatless meal at least once a week and I can tell you that this one will be in heavy rotation for a while!

** We need some blinds in a bad way, because I am a scaredy cat! Granted, our house is about 90 yards off of the road, so its not like the neighbors can see in or anything, but still. Last night I woke up around 2 o'clock and by 3 I was still awake and I hated to turn on the tv for fear of waking Steven up. I knew that I wanted to go to the den to watch tv, but I was scared that I was going to see something scary staring back at me in one of the windows as I made my way from the upstairs to the down. Crazy right? I mean monsters don't exist. I really don't think I am going to see the scream mask or the Mothman looking back at me, but I literally had to sike myself up to get out of the bed!! I'm almost 30 for crying out loud! But my 8 year old imagination almost got the best of me haha! PLEASE tell me that I am not the only one who gets crazy thoughts like these! :)

** Confessional over!


  1. I am going to make that recipe next week! It looks amazing! :) Also, I'm with you on the stomach issues. It helped when I eliminated processed foods and dairy. I use unsweetened almond milk now and I try to avoid cheese. Hope that helps!

  2. That cake looks really pretty and yours sounds like it is going to be very tasty. I have never had hiccups like that, but hope you find out what is going on soon. That recipe sounds so good. I can't wait to try it.

  3. I feel your pain with the hiccups. Mine tend to come in waves. I'll get them often and then not for a long time. Hope you're feeling better!! I had to giggle with your last confession. The blinds don't bother me, but I may or may not be afraid of the dark ;). Hubby teases me that when he's not home I turn on every light in the house.

  4. Listen, needing blinds is a serious struggle! I NEED them. We have them now, but before we had them I was always thinking there was someone in the pool area hanging out and watching me do nothing important. Lol.
