Island Confessions

Guys I’m almost done bragging talking about my vacation, I promise. There’s just so much to cover and in so many different ways that you’ll have to put up with me through the end of the week before you’re in the clear. 

Tomorrow is a fun one so you’ll want to come back for that! You get to see my gross swollen face from what we assume was a bug bite. I’m still anticipating the bug’s eggs to hatch in my brain but that’s another post for another day. 

It truly pained me last week to skip out on confessions. It’s such a soul-cleansing experience and I won’t be missing another for the foreseeable future. 

Let’s confess!

:: I don’t have any family friendly poolside playlists in my spotify library so I stayed up late one night putting one together. Then we never used it - but it’s still good.

:: Shark week decided to show up on vacation and I was surprised to find remedy at the local mini mart. From now on I’m always vacationing prepared because the I’m-only-buying-tampons-so-what interaction was awkward for me.


:: I purposefully ignored work emails that could have been answered with a simple reply from my iPhone, just to support the fact that I was “off” and on island time.


:: I started reading Game of Thrones before finishing my other book at home. This makes for 9 books that I have actively open and “reading”. I just can’t finish a book that I've started.

:: I didn’t pack tweezers with me and the humidity caused my eyebrows to sprout a little scattered unibrow. I couldn’t take it, so I used my fancy new mini razor and swiped those punks away. Please don’t grow back thicker and darker, unibrow hairs. 


:: I peeled my skin peels in public. I’m a disgusting human being. 

:: I couldn’t stay away and I read some blogs on vacation. There was no method to my madness so if I read and didn’t comment I’m sorry. Will you still love me?

:: Coming in to work Monday was a struggle. I doodled palm trees on my notepad in a meeting and was caught doing it. 

Sigh, can I go back to paradise?

Linking up with kick-ass Kathy

I take mini vacays every week....a little "F the World" time to do whatever the heck I want is always necessary! Cheers to the next vacation!

Jenn said...

hahaha I love all of your confessions, particularly the eye brow and getting caught drawing palm trees. I think we can all relate to a little post-vacation blues...

Lauren said...

Only buying lady products is the worst but then adding in candy or something junky makes you a stereotype so really, you can never win. And nine books, whoaaaa how do you keep them straight?

Krystal R. said...

I love this!! I am going to Tobago from Thursday to Sunday and I wont be checking any emails at all. Not even sorry!

Also you called aunt flo shark week and Im dying laughing ...

P!nky said...

Hahah, shark week!

So glad you didn't check your email, smart lady. Vacay time, is true vacay time.

Tracey said...

I'm glad you didn't reply to your work emails..not sure I could have done the same!

Illegally Blonde said...

I love to peel skin, Crazy, I know.

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

It's always hard coming back from vacation! Game of Thrones is on my list of books to read but it honestly just seems daunting to start the series.

Amy Fashion Blog said...

good for you not answering work e-mails.

Helene in Between said...

you posted my fav gif of ALL TIME, charlie! that gif makes my day. and i hate not having tampons, ugh.

Alex @ she's his co-pilot said...

Coming back to work after a week in paradise is the worst!

These GIFs are amaze. Laughed out loud! And still jealous of your vaca.

MakeMeUpMia said...

These pics cracked me up! Oh my gosh, I bet that was fun buying tampons. Reminds me of the time I had to go on a search for baking soda in Mexico on our honeymoon (long story) I ended up being handed a cup of bacon and sprite. Not cool.

Kasey Lynne said...

I just can't look at that guy...his unibrow is just so gross. And that thin little mustache?? CREEPER STATUS.

I can't wait for shark week. august 10th baby!

lil desiqua said...

Shark week hits every single time I go on vacation and it's super annoying because it's really hard to feel sexy in a bathing suit when you feel all bloated and crampy. Love that you ignored work on vacay- and that Charlie Day gif!

Em said...

I felt the same way coming back from the honeymoon! It took me about a week or more to get back onto work time from island time lol. And ummm you have Spotify??? FRIEND ME!! We can share playlists and stuff...WHILE sending car snaps. Whoa.

Brittney, Breaking Free said...

hahahaha the eyebrows meme is too funny!

I get caught blogging and facebooking at work all the time oops!

Kenzie Smith said...

I have no idea how you are able to be reading 9 books and not finish them, ha ha! I can't handle not even finishing one. That eyebrow gif is hilarious!

Brittany said...

Good job on not answering work emails!! Vacation is vacation regardless of whether you have wifi or not.

Meagan said...

I've totally been there where shark week (LOL) has showed up on vacation and then I'm scrambling to try and find a store that has tampons... (on a resort) never again!!

Nadine Lynn said...

You have 9 books going?!?! That is way too much for me to focus on, I would be so overwhelmed!

Also, it cracks me up that you doodled palm trees in a meeting when you got back. Lets them know where you would rather be! HAH!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

Damn straight you didn't answer work e-mails... I would've had to kick your ass if you did!

Katie Elizabeth said...

Don't worry - in a desperate attempt one time I used my razor in between my eyebrows and it all grew back normally!!

Amy @ Living n Learning said...

I'm glad you didn't answer work emails on your vacation! And my eyebrows just shot up at the fact that you have 9 books you're currently reading. That would drive me nuts! Always have to finish a book before starting a new one. It usually helps me read a little faster and a little more often.

Him & Me (But Mostly Me) said...

Good for you for ignoring work. Thomas had a hard time doing that during the honeymoon. I don't have the ability to look at work e-mails when I'm out of the office, so yay! Glad you enjoyed your trip! And I love the palm tree doodling! :)

Shenine joon said...

Omg the part about your eyebrows and that funny you picked! HA! so good. I swear when I'm stressed my eyebrows grow like crazy it's ridiculous.

Amanda Nicole said...

Ignoring emails is so hard! Kudos to you for being able to do it.

I peel my skin too when it's been burned. I can't help it!

Nats ~Coral Tinted Perceptions said...

I want to read Game of Thrones, I've never watched it so I'm suffering with serious FOMO lol
