So Many Things to Confess

Let's start today's confessions with admitting that I am THE worst daughter. Ever. 

Thing #1 - I didn't get mom anything for her half birthday that was on Sunday. That makes it 26 years in a row. 
Thing #2 - Mom has been blogging for weeks and finally made it to my sidebar today! Derp.

So I'm usually a fan of themed confessions but this week you're going to get a whole lot of random from me. It's partially from the extra sleep I got this weekend and partially that I wrote this on Sunday with the aid of two 4-shot Americano's over 5 hours. It's just what a rainy weekend will do to a person. 

Let me take the podium.

:: I lust over non-paleo #foodporn on instagram. Especially breakfast plates.
:: Sometimes I don't remember if I've used a certain gif before on my blog(s).
:: I will judge you if you wear shorts / a dress without tights on a rainy 50 degree day.
:: The desire to go shopping is outweighed by the desire to stay home in pajamas.
:: I admit to blogger burnout too. 
:: Meeting friends for Happy Hour just doesn't sound like fun anymore - but meet for a workout? Yes!
:: I don't mind being people-watched in a coffee shop. It makes me feel interesting or is something wrong with my hair?
:: My "sobriety" streak was broken at 75 days because of work. It upset me - but it made me realize how much I've grown as a person and how happy I truly am. Cheers to personal growth!
:: I like singing in my car... sorry for the video quality. This one's for you, Brooke.


Happy Hump Day! What secrets do you want to share?


Linking up with the craziest Canadian, Kathy

That is totally my style in my car EVERY MORNING. Pretty sure if I didnt rock out in my car I'd be grumpy cat at work. You'd probably judge me but I wear shorts so often, I'd probably wear them in the cold too. I hate jeans!! And Im with you on the happy hour thing. Yeah I go out but I'd so rather go to the gym or sip my wine at home ... from a regular cup ..

I am always lusting over food on Instagram, Pinterest too! I wonder if you would judge me for wearing shorts and a hoodie, that's what I am always wearing when it is about 60-70 out. Ha ha! I feel you on the blogging burn out, I was in a total rut over the weekend, not to mention exhausted. Happy hump day!

Just Me, Angie! said...

You can never be a bad daughter and lusting over food is why I hide food on my FB newsfeed and hate my pinterest when someone I follow does a sugary carb explosion on it :)

Lynsey @ Eternally Wanderlyn said...

I would totally rather stay home in my pajamas than go shopping. There's always internet shopping! But I admit I would rather read or watch TV. Haha.

Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

that's what online shopping is for!!! there are so many times i'm all "ok, i need to go here here and here" and what happens? the couch wins errtime!

thanks for linking up!

I loved the video on instagram yesterday - I mean this should be a weekly post on it's own!! I totally know what you mean about meeting up at the gym rather than happy hours - my my how priorities change lol!!

Kait said...

sometimes when the mall is essential i just throw on a pair of my 'nicer' sweats aka yoga pants, tshirt, no bra, and drag myself there. that might be happening this evening; i really need some new items for puerto rico.

Amy Fashion Blog said...

I sing in the car to and got caught by to guys yesterday. I don't do happy hour either.

Sorry to hear you broke your sobriety.

Yay for extra sleep. I actually went back to bed today after I took my hubby to work.

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

you are so freaking cute....question though are you driving? That makes me nervous hahhahaa

I agree meeting up for a workout is so much easier than a drink because a drink requires me to put on real pants and makeup and that is such a process!

Lisa said...

Hey Jess!! Yes I totally judge people for wearing shorts or a dress on cold/rainy 50 degree days! lol Its like .. What is wrong with you lol!

That video is one of my faves, hahaha! The windblown look... just love! hahahaha
A lot of people are feeling blogger burnout lately it seems like. :/ Right now I'm not one of them but I had been for a while... usually it goes in spurts.

Chloe said...

Great video! Haha. Sorry about your sobriety being broken. But 75 days is awesome! That's a long time.

Kristen said...

MakeMeUpMia said...

I definitely enjoy your car singing!! Random, but can I just say, you ROCK. I am so impressed at you running 2 blogs, get it girl :)

Brews and Tunes said...

Very nice post!! I understand about happy hour.. I was offered to go to an open bar the other night.. but it was 30 minutes away from work, meaning an hour away from home.. Just not work it to me anymore.. The 23 year old me would understand this 28 year old me.. lol

Brittney, Breaking Free said...

I'm definitely guilty of looking at food porn...its a nasty habit LOL

Tracey said...

You have completely nailed singing in the car as proven by your snapchats!

P!nky said...

I LOVE rocking out in the car!!! it makes the day that much better!

And meeting for a workout is so much more fun than happy hour.

FOODPORN....love it!

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

Sometimes I think it is going to be warmer than it is so I wear flip flops to commute... and then I feel dumb. I judge myself.

Em said...

Your singing snapchats make my day, girl! And uhhh pretty sure you couldn't be a bad anything! I'm sure you're the best daughter EVER and one of these days...I just might send a snapchat of me rocking out in my car too. #carconcert

Food, Booze, & Baggage said...

Online shopping...the best of both worlds :) I hate to leave the house when it rains, I just want to be on the couch with a book or movie :)

Amy @ Living n Learning said...

I always love your car singing snaps! Keep em coming! :)

Christina said...

75 days is a long time!! go you!

Lauren said...

No happy hour? Happy hour is my happy time! And um, you have two blogs so you probably get blogger burnout twice as fast. Do what makes you happy girl!

Janna Renee said...

Haha I totally thought about meeting someone for coffee the other day, and then I was like...no, a gym meetup would be a much better idea!! Get your Beyonce' on girl!!

Nadine Lynn said...

Rocking out in the car is my favorite. I mean...how else would you keep from killing people?!

brooke lyn said...

those bedrooms eyes for everyone to see!

Helene in Between said...

girl online shopping is my best friend! I sing in my car likes it my job.

Kayla Moothart said...

You car singing snaps are some of my favorite - not sure if they are ahead or behind of the cucumber snaps.... HAHAHAHAAAA!

Melissa Suggitt said...

I want Angie on my sidebar!

and in other news, i'm a little bit jealous that other people get to see your sexy car songs but at the same time so happy that other people get to see them. it's a bit of a STRUGGLE

Kasey Lynne said...

SEXY EYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i think that will be your new nickname, because your so famous for those snaps!

kelsnsher said...

If you're not rockin out in your car to music then you're simply not living!! And if you're the worst daughter for not getting a gift on a half-birthday then I'm a terrible daughter b/c I didn't even know that was a thing lol

Jessi @ Jessi's Design said...

Hey girl crush, your humpday confessions sound identical to me "in the tone of Ryan Gosling you know..."

Brittany said...

Holy rockstar moment! I'm a total car singer but doubt I sound half as good as you!!

Lexalicious said...

desire to stay home in pjs > EVERYTHING ELSE EVER

LG @ thelaurelgazette.com said...

I adore you a million times over, and over, and over. You know who else I adore? your mom! between your two blogs and your amazing comments and your mom's blog, the internet is legit overflowing with goodness.

Lora Ashley said...

LOL My desire to go shopping is outweighed by my desire to stay on in my pjs too!
