Confessions-Link It Up Style

Happy Humpday!  Nothing makes me happier then getting these confessions off my chest by linking up with Kathy.  I’m also guest posting over at Katie’s home today just in case you want double the fun.

Let’s get right into it!

I confess I really think about these confessions.  They mainly come from every day life annoyances occurrences. Majority of them come to me when I’m driving and I don’t have access to my little blog notebook.  Wednesdays make me so happy because I get to hop around like a happy bunny to everyones little corner of the world and realize I’m not as big of a weirdo that I thought I was.  However, there are a few of you with some pretty serious epic confessions that I’m literally staring at the screen mouth open going

I confess I get really excited when I see a blogging tutorial on Pinterest “10 ways to grow your blog”

(via tumblr)

Then I read it and I’m like….that’s it???

(via tumblr)

Write good content and be consistent“…….ummmmmm please tell me something I don’t know ughhhh I feel so duped by your pretty photoshop blogging pic.

I confess I think Men should never ever be allowed to take selfies.  Girls can only take selfies if they’re showing me a sweet outfit I should buy or rocking it out in the gym.  Otherwise just to say “hey look I’m pretty!” and to see how many likes you get…..over it….VERY OVER IT especially if it includes either a peace sign or duck lips.

I confess I have a folder of gifs saved and I tried to add one more and save it as “judging you”…..well it already exists….including judging you v1, v2, v3…..So I saved this one as judging you wine.  Problem solved.

(via tumblr)
I confess I really feel like I should get a round of applause when I put on a duvet cover out of the dryer all by myself. I mean why is it so dang hard to get all four corners in and not have random lumpy down comforter areas?
(via tumblr)
I confess I get full of rage when I have to buy tampons.  It’s like highway robbery every month.  Also I’m raging for well…..I think you get the point.
I confess since I’m also a private investigator in my spare time (yes all of it) I found all of our answers to our Latisse dilemma.  However it may involve something that I shouldn’t broadcast over the interwebz so email me for the deets.  It’s legit….I’m like positively giddy over this epic discovery.
(via tumblr)
I confess if a guy is walking behind me in my condo complex I will walk past my place…..don’t need someone coming up behind me and pushing me into my place as I unlock my door.  I know I’m crazy but better to be paranoid then dead.
(via tumblr)
I confess online shopping……..strikes again.  If you remember from this post about bargain shopping….first it was Bloomingdales and now it’s SHOPBOP.  You can even use the 25% code even off the sale stuff!  If you’re on a spending freeze look away if not here are my picks!  Use the code INTHEFAMILY14

I confess I’m so pumped and secretly scared for my first link up on Friday.  I’m excited to reveal my button.  I confess this took me waaaaay to long on Photoshop to make….(I have zero knowledge base and I learn as I go).  I was pretty proud of myself for the layered effect.  I’ve had lots of questions about the link up.  Basically it is roundup of all your favorite things from the week.  Favorite pins, recipes, workouts, songs, Facebook musings, etc….basically anything that you were digging from the week.  Here is the button grab it and link up with me on Friday morning!  The link will go live at 7am EST.

Can’t wait to see everyones posts on Friday!  xoxoxo

    you always have the BEST gifs!!!! I love it!!!!

  3. April 16, 2014 / 12:05 PM

    Haha love this!!! I feel the same way about the “How to improve your blog” pins. WTF? Tell me something I don’t know people!! You always have the best .gifs, seriously. Umm.. you need to email or text me about the Latisse thing! I wanted like three things from the ShopBop 25% off sale and ALL are out of stock by the time I got home last night. Super sad face. Oh and LOVING the button for Friday!!

    <3, Pamela

  4. April 16, 2014 / 12:22 PM

    Hahaha I constantly try to save images that I already named the same name. Judging you plus wine Lol! Duvet covers are soo annoying and I always feel the need to be congratulated/ praised by Marc if I put it on by myself, because it is so annoying! Oh and if you think duvets are bad try putting on a crib sheet lol. XO

  5. April 16, 2014 / 12:32 PM

    Awesome job on the button! You always have the best gifs!

  6. April 16, 2014 / 12:33 PM

    I absolutely had putting sheets (& duvets) on the bed. My least favorite chore! And that Shopbop sale is killing me!

  7. April 16, 2014 / 12:33 PM

    Look at that pretty link up button! Well done! :)

    I buy my tampons in bulk at Costco. So much cheaper and less times I get the awkward look from the male cashier. Win-Win!

  8. April 16, 2014 / 12:52 PM

    yay for your link up! i will definitely join in! :) the first confession was hilarious, so true. online shopping is my best friend / worst enemy.

  9. April 16, 2014 / 12:54 PM

    MUST. stay away from shopbop this week! im getting close to my monthly budget and i really need to shop… but i really love your picks :) :) xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  10. April 16, 2014 / 1:03 PM

    So very excited for your link-up!! “better to be paranoid than dead” truer words have never been uttered!! It sucks buying tampons and I try to get them at CVS when I have extra bucks or it’s buy one get one free – aint nobody wanna pay full price for that stuff lol!!

  11. April 16, 2014 / 1:05 PM

    That’s an adorable button! Great job. I know absolutely nothing about HTML so I understand your pain.

    I was on a spending freeze but I sucked at it. And those dresses are to die for!! Where did you say you got them?

  12. April 16, 2014 / 1:06 PM

    Drinking wine and judging people….love it!

  13. April 16, 2014 / 1:14 PM

    ooh, I do love that cute little button! Funny confessions as always…thanks for the laughs. So true about those pins about growing your blog…always stating the obvious.
    XO, Gina

  14. April 16, 2014 / 1:35 PM

    Haha!! totally laughed out loud with the Hulk gif, because it´s so true!
    And I can´t wait for your link-up, I´ve already started writing my post :D!! … your button rules btw :)

  15. April 16, 2014 / 1:37 PM

    I love the idea of a folder…I do not think ahead and spend more time searching for gifs than probably anything else in life.

  16. April 16, 2014 / 1:38 PM

    I love the button!!! But I love pink and glitter:) The blogging pins always blow, I stopped reading them. I need a spending freeze, I find myself nickel and dime-ing myself to death this month thinking oh it’s just a $5 lunch or glass of wine! Ugh….

  17. April 16, 2014 / 1:42 PM

    Hahah I get so mad about the blogging pins too, 90% of them suck, yet I still get roped into clicking them!
    Your link up button is all sorts of amazing, good luck with your first link up!

  18. April 16, 2014 / 1:42 PM

    Oh gosh okay I’m so glad I”m not the only person who used to walk past my place if someone was walking behind me. I used to do that in college all the time. I agree–paranoid is way better than dead! Im also sometimes left staring at my screen slow blinking at some people’s confessions. Either no one can top it–or I instantly feel REALLY embarrassed for them. I’ll confess I stopped using our duvet cover because I hated having to put it back on every time I washed it.

  19. April 16, 2014 / 1:50 PM

    Haha I agree with the last one for sure. Also I think I’ll join your link up Friday!

  20. April 16, 2014 / 2:01 PM

    I cannot even imagine having to put the duvet on my down comforter myself…it’s seriously giving me anxiety just thinking about it right now…how do people make their beds alone!?!!

  21. April 16, 2014 / 2:08 PM

    YES to the blogging “tips”! They are all the same and not at all helpful. And I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks selfies need to go away already. I’ve never really understood the point and now they’re just driving me crazy!

  22. April 16, 2014 / 2:10 PM

    My duvet cover beats me every time. And tampon buying….uggg…men have it so easy.

  23. April 16, 2014 / 2:14 PM

    Love your button! I always love your Friday Favorites posts and it’ll be nice to see what others are sharing too! Great idea. You always have the best gifs; the fact that you have a dedicated folder makes me feel so behind and unorganized. I need to get on that!

  24. April 16, 2014 / 2:40 PM

    This pretty much made my day – I was cracking up at all of these because I feel the same way! You’re right about those Pinterest blogging tips – they suck you in every time. I am so excited that you will now be hosting a Friday linkup! Count me in. :)

  25. April 16, 2014 / 2:54 PM

    Your button has gold glitter. It was then I knew we were destined to be friends!

    Guy selfies are totally lame. Stop it!

    I get angry at the price of girl products too. It’s like they KNOW we need them and will charge anything they damn well please because they know we cant refuse. GRRRR.

    The drinking wine and judging is hilarious. And true.

    I get irrationally angry at all the blogging tips posts. They seem so obvious?

  26. April 16, 2014 / 3:01 PM

    Men should never, ever, ever take selfies. Seriously?!
    I’m hosting a swap that benefits mental awareness. Stop by and check it out! I hope you’ll think about signing up!

  27. April 16, 2014 / 3:04 PM

    I feel the same about the blogging tips! Ugh…

    Oh, and when someone creepy is waking behind me I totally walk slow and step to the side to let them pass me (i’m a total freak). I blame my obsession with Law and Order SVU.

    xo, jen

  28. April 16, 2014 / 3:12 PM

    Can I just say that your gifs ALWAYS make my day? That wine + judging gif defines my life lol. And shuuttt upppp about the 25% off! ShopBop is the best….crap looks like I’ll have to succumb to my shopping addiction to this morning! :D Those sunglasses are ADORABLE.

  29. April 16, 2014 / 3:18 PM

    Judging people that are not helpful with their “grow your blog” posts… my hobby! :)

  30. April 16, 2014 / 3:35 PM

    Love those sunglasses and your button looks great!!

  31. April 16, 2014 / 3:41 PM

    “don’t need someone coming up behind me and pushing me into my place as I unlock my door.” Bahahahaha! You kill meeeeeeeeeeeee! I feel the same way if someone is following me on the road for too long… like pull in somewhere else so that they don’t know where you live and so that there are witnesses around, haha!
    Don’t even get me started on the price of tampons. And that’s one thing you can’t go no-brand on. Unless you want your pants to look like someone got murdered in them.

  32. April 16, 2014 / 4:32 PM

    Haha I feel the same way about those tutorials. I get all excited & then am like that was no help at all….

  33. April 16, 2014 / 4:32 PM

    I HATE it when I get so excited about a pin and then it’s just nothing, like what?! no.

  34. April 16, 2014 / 4:54 PM

    Hey Amanda!! I completely agree with it all! Esp. The blogging tips thing.. Its like really? Tell me something I don’t know!! As for the creepy apt. complex guy.. totes, its better to be safe than sorry! And…. Congrats on the link up!! The button looks beauts!! Great job!! :D XOXOX


  35. April 16, 2014 / 5:09 PM

    Love these confessions…also…loved the google analytics post. I need to figure out how to use it! Your post made me even more intrigued! Xx.

  36. April 16, 2014 / 5:22 PM

    Hahah i loved everything about this post! I totally feel the same way about pins that are like “ways to grow your blog” and they don’t tell me anything new… COOL!

  37. April 16, 2014 / 5:24 PM

    YESSSS Michael Bluth! And there is no blogging secret or else we would all know it and it wouldn’t work anymore, right? That has to be it!

    Good luck with the link-up and don’t get bummed if this one doesn’t go well. I am off Friday for Easter so I don’t plan to blog at all so others may be the same – there’s always next week!

  38. April 16, 2014 / 5:25 PM

    duvet covers are the devil. you totally deserve a prize.

  39. April 16, 2014 / 6:35 PM

    Haha I always love your confessions!! I will have to start getting my post together for Friday!! So excited for you!!

  40. April 16, 2014 / 6:45 PM

    I’d kind of like to know which confessions shocked you. Was it mine about being mad when people don’t return books? CRAZY!

  41. April 16, 2014 / 6:52 PM

    Can not wait to link up Friday–LOVE that you are hosting a link-up :) And omgsh I am so glad that someone else gets so excited/disappointed about ways to grow your blog or your hair or lose 10 pounds ha :) Also I will swear to you my next comfortable will not be a duvet again–my anxiety cannot handle it ha!


  42. April 16, 2014 / 6:59 PM

    I’m totally the same about tampons and I act surprised… like I don’t know it’s coming!!! Hahhaha

  43. April 16, 2014 / 7:54 PM

    Add tampons to the list along with vino-to-go cups for “shoulda woulda coulda” inventions! Equally genius in my book (ha well almost). I will drive by my house for sure if I feel like someone’s been driving behind me too long to make sure I’m not being followed so hear ya on the walk past the door situation ha. Happy hump day, my friend!

  44. April 16, 2014 / 8:11 PM

    Just found your blog! I’ve been taking Bar Method since this January and I love it!!! Can’t wait to join you for the link up Friday!!! Hooraz!

  45. April 16, 2014 / 9:04 PM

    Selfies should be banned. You are a crazy gif lady and you need to come up with a way to make money off your collection bc you do so much research!!!!! The latisse thing… I didnt know there was even a dilemma– what is the dilemma and what is the solution?

  46. April 17, 2014 / 12:41 AM

    hahaha your gifs! Where in the world do you find them all??! And YES the duvet cover is the most impossible thing to do with one person! You end up half inside– and by half I mean completely inside… or that’s just me? :)

    So excited for this linkup! I am definitely adding this to my blog calendar for next week!

  47. April 17, 2014 / 12:52 AM

    Holy shiz, you get so many comments on your posts, it’s bananas!! I’m #54…that’s cray. I want the dirt on latisse. I’m totally linking up on Friday – whoot! Love these confessions. That’s my rushed mommy comment…let’s pretend all those choppy half-sentences make sense. ;-)

  48. April 17, 2014 / 1:56 AM

    Oh my gosh, duvet covers! I did that once and swore to never buy another duvet cover. I’m all about using quilts as comforters now. haha

  49. April 17, 2014 / 3:29 AM

    NO man should ever take a selfie – big amen to that!! So excited about your link up!!

  50. April 17, 2014 / 5:10 AM

    Woohoo congrats on your link up!! I’m gonna have to come by and join. That is if my crazy work schedule this week allows it. I do the same thing in my apartment complex….just keep walking. ;)

  51. May 4, 2014 / 10:53 PM

    Hahaha thanks for the laughs :) Also, if you need some info about Latisse, I can tell you about my experience using it for its original purpose. It does indeed make your eyelashes grow!
