Confessions- Like a Whole Lot of Them!

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
I really love starting the week on a Tuesday.  We are already halfway through and it’s only the second full work day of the week. So I pretty much had a lot of these ready to roll last week but my ridiculous story about getting my hair stuck in a sensor pretty much stole the show and nothing really held a flame to it.  So this week I have a lot of funnies for you!  Linking up with Kathy who I’m glad is still hosting this weekly sesh!  Let’s get right into it.


I confess I was talking to my sisters husband telling him the story about how I was super aggravated (not really) with my new Nespresso Vertuoline Coffee machine.

I made a cup yesterday and halfway through it made a weird noise and then just stopped working. Needless to say I wasn’t pleased since I just got the machine.  I was telling my mother about it who is all the way across the country in California at a wedding.  She simply goes to me “well Amanda did you have enough water in the chamber”.  I paused……..I’m pretty sure that was exactly the culprit.  How did she know that without even seeing the machine?  As I’m telling Dan my sisters husband this story he starts hysterically laughing.  “Can you and your sister be anymore alike???  She just was yelling about the machine this morning and then I added water and magically it worked“.  It’s not my fault…..clearly that same gene runs in my sister.

I confess I give my plants that are on my balcony gatorade, water, or pretty much whatever is leftover in my cups from my family room.  Usually it is what is leftover from Mark’s cup the night before gets thrown on them before I walk out the door to work. They need electrolytes too right?  What’s the old saying again…..first plants…..then pets……then……clearly I need to work a little harder on keeping the greenery alive right?

I confess Mark has at random taken a few pictures of me while I’m sleeping.  When I mean sleeping I mean fall asleep with the lights on, TV blaring kind of falling asleep to.  How the heck do y’all look so angelic….. I’m talking to you Pamela and Julie.  I seriously look like I’m dead…..like cold and pale.  Sometimes I even have my entire arm twisted up around my head like exorcist style.  It’s not even normal.  The worst part???  Then he sends them to my sister.

I confess I’m so bad at announcing winners.  The winner of the Nordstrom & Lululemon giveaway was

and the winner of the Tieks ballet flats was

Both of the winners have been contacted…..like a long time ago lol

I confess I’m getting super aggravated as of recent because random people have been asking me questions on pinterest about my pins.  NO I don’t know where that sweet open back shirt came from but if you find it can you send it to me??  Yes I am aware that pin goes to nowhere and I’m pretty sure it’s sold out by now….


I confess I died laughing when I found my “All About Me” book that my mother kept.  First I was rocking those model pictures at a young age.  Please note the stylish Osh Kosh denim jumper with just the right amount of layered bracelets.

I clearly was good at everything.  That OCD nature started young am I right?  Look not one X outside the line…..

I’m pretty sure I couldn’t stand on my head…..

Also apparently my toes were always painted…..even in drawing form.


I confess the cup holders in my car make me straight up rage.  Can you think of any worse engineering than this.

If there is not enough liquid in the top and I take a corner at high speeds (because let’s be honest it’s fun to do in my car) the various drink of choice will rocket across my car making the most dramatic noise ever.  It’s usually this Pure Barre Tervis Tumbler that is the culprit.

Finally I opened my email the other day and saw this.

Thank you living social for this sweet new deal.  Let’s put very large pictures on a fleece throw blanket.  I can’t think of anything scarier oh wait yeah if you put pictures of me sleeping on it and then covered me with it while I was sleeping…..

not even throwing a filter on this one can save this…….

yup that just about does it peace up

Hope you’re having a fabulous week so far!  xoxoxoxo

    Can I just say that I LITERALLY lol’d at the thought of that blanket on you covered in pictures of you sleeping?! These confessions are too funny, and I too add random water left over in cups to our plants too. Totally normal… I think.

  2. September 3, 2014 / 7:49 AM

    Ahh Osh Kosh denim jumpers, those were the days!

  3. September 3, 2014 / 10:12 AM

    Does it even surprise you that Gary sneak attacks pictures of me and I have the same arm pose going – seriously though!! So my parents got a Nespresso machine for my dad’s birthday and he’s a little weary of trying it/scared without someone who knows how to operate it – so that is waiting to happen until we get there next week lol! I love that your toes were painted – you were a girly girl through and through!! Happy Wednesday :)

  4. September 3, 2014 / 10:27 AM

    hahahaah that pic of you sleeping with mouth open and everything! my husband once took a pic of me and kayla asleep in the car and we looked exactly the same: head tilted up and to the right, mouth open. his IG caption was “like mother like daughter” #RAGE

    thanks for linking up!

    Hahahaha! That picture blanket.. what the heck?? No thank you!

  6. September 3, 2014 / 12:22 PM

    LOL omgggg girl! You. Are. Hilarious. Trust me, I don’t always look even remotely decent when I sleep. When I’m actually in bed sleeping there are no rules. I have arms and legs and hair everywhere. It’s a mess. But usually on the couch I have a limited amount of space so I curl up in a ball and stay there until I get in bed. And my friend has the same car/cup holder and she complains about it on a regular basis too so you aren’t alone!

    Hahaha I killed one of my orchids last week because I overfertilized it and then watered it too much so you arent the only plant murderer around haha Also sleeping pics should be outlawed!

  8. September 3, 2014 / 12:27 PM

    Ha! Joe takes pictures of me when I sleep too. Apparently I sometimes hang my arms down like a monkey…

  9. September 3, 2014 / 12:29 PM

    Dying for a Nespresso coffee maker, I may or may not be a coffee addict… How do you like it?! Might have to throw it on my birthday wish list!

  10. September 3, 2014 / 12:33 PM

    HAHAHA, I take pictures of my husband and sister when they sleep and they haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate it!!!

    That blanket, creeeptastic!

    I 100% agree that plants need gatorade….and I mean you’re in florida…totally works!

  11. September 3, 2014 / 12:37 PM

    oh my lord, you are hilarious. girl when I sleep, I am not cute. mouth open, both arms up in the air, diagonal on the bed… not cute. that blanket is super creepy, and i am loving the all about me book – super cute!

  12. September 3, 2014 / 12:44 PM

    Your About Me book is TOO adorable. I love it! I’m pretty sure my husband has several photos of me sleeping in the exact same position … hey, it’s comfortable to us, right?!

  13. September 3, 2014 / 12:55 PM

    Oh I definitely had a very similar All About Me book, OCD-tendencies and all! Though I’m not sure I would have had the nerve to say I could stand on my head haha…to this day, I still can’t even do a cartwheel!

  14. September 3, 2014 / 12:56 PM

    Why have I never thrown extra liquids from cups left around in my plants before?! I’m about to do just that with the water cup Freddie left out. It’s the little things…;)

  15. September 3, 2014 / 1:05 PM

    Oh my gosh your All About Me book is so cute and funny!! Haha. I’ve had that issue with our Nespresso machine then I realized that I either didn’t have enough water in it, or the capsule wasn’t pierced through. Oh and remember to take the water out because one time I didn’t do that and a few days went by, and yeah there was mold. Ew. My mom gave me some of her plants last year and I killed them. I’m only good at keeping flowers fresh haha. Hope that you’re having a great day so far! :-)

  16. September 3, 2014 / 1:11 PM

    I am the most unattractive sleeper ever. My face like…swells or something I swear! And I never really understood the concept of the photo blankets. I mean really!

  17. September 3, 2014 / 1:12 PM

    HAHAHA I would DIE if Theo took a picture of me sleeping! When you woke up was your arm asleep?! People have been asking my random questions on Pinterest lately too. Like where they can buy that shirt that Miranda Kerr has on. I’m like um I have no clue I just pinned it! Google it, duh!

  18. September 3, 2014 / 1:46 PM

    So funny. I would never want any one to see me sleeping, I look terrible and my hair is always a disaster!! I love short weeks, I wish only worked four days a week! Hell, I would be happy with just five days instead of the 6 I work.

  19. September 3, 2014 / 1:48 PM

    My husband loves to take sleeping pics of me, too. I look like a dead whale. It isn’t cute.

  20. September 3, 2014 / 1:51 PM

    I’m not an angelic sleeper either – I’m usually curled in a ball like a rabbit… blankets wrapped weirdly around me…
    and the faces I make – I’ve threatened my fiance to never show those pictures.. I’ll kick his butt.

    Nespresso? Yes, I want one of those – now, if I can only break my keurig… hehehe

  21. September 3, 2014 / 2:02 PM

    My mom took a picture of me when I was sleeping once. I have a hoodie I sleep with. It was wrapped around the top if my head like a turban. It cracked my shit up when I saw it. Lol.

  22. September 3, 2014 / 2:05 PM

    Hah these are awesome. It is freakin ADORABLE that little you gave your drawn feet red toes, aww!

  23. September 3, 2014 / 2:40 PM

    I do the same thing when “watering” my plants… if it even counts as that! I just use whatever was leftover in Nick’s cup from the night before haha. Maybe one of these days I’ll try fresh water and see if that helps….

  24. September 3, 2014 / 2:51 PM

    people are asking about your pins?! that is weird. haha. and i never announce winners if they want to see who won they can go look at the post and see!

  25. September 3, 2014 / 2:52 PM

    LOL I’ve gotten so many questions on pinterest recently too hahaha mostly on where to get certain items and I’m just like I have no idea. It’s super rare that I actually go and buy that specific item online. I just pin things that I like and then consider buying something similar!! Ooops! ;)

  26. September 3, 2014 / 2:54 PM

    You scared me so badly when you said you were unhappy with your Nespresso! I am 99% sure I am buying one and you almost just killed my dream, lmfao! Glad it was just a water error. Phew.

  27. September 3, 2014 / 3:33 PM

    Hahahahaha your sleeping pics, hilarious. I’d kill him, jokingly of course… Maybe. Love your mini Amanda modeling pics, too cute!

  28. September 3, 2014 / 4:31 PM

    I have a coworker that throws coffee in our plant & its grown like weeds!!!! Who knew!

  29. September 3, 2014 / 4:42 PM

    Getting an email that someone has a question about my pin makes me irrationally angry instantly. Leave me alone! Find out yourself!

  30. September 3, 2014 / 4:47 PM

    Hahaha I love everything about this post. And I completely agree- WTF with the GIANT pictures on a fleece blanket? Is that a thing?

  31. September 3, 2014 / 5:09 PM

    I dont even know what I want to look like while I am sleepy. I might kill whomever takes said photos. Just no!

    I am pretty sure that if I saw something on Pinterest and didn’t know where it was from…I would google it if I really needed to know? Like WTF. Isn’t the point to save things til later. You don’t know right away if the link doesn’t work! Gosh!

    That fleece blanket scared the shit out of me and now I forgot what else I was going to say. Yikes!

  32. September 3, 2014 / 5:11 PM

    That sleeping picture is the best! I am not a bit surprised that you had your toes painted in your drawing and were perfectly accessorized from a young age. Once a fashionista always a fashionista!

  33. September 3, 2014 / 5:40 PM

    But what is with coffee makers and water, tho?! So I did the opposite: my hubs decided to fill the water part, but not put any coffee in it to let me know that the water container was full. So I go and add another 8 cups to make coffee Monday morning, then was all, “what the hell is that dripping noise?!” as there was a straight up flood on my kitchen floor. Seriously, why would he only put water in the machine and no coffee?! Ugh.

  34. September 3, 2014 / 6:01 PM

    Hahaha, the coffee maker thing sounds like something I would do!

    I don’t sleep pretty either. One time I was at a sleepover and totally got pranked (the whole shaving cream in the hand, tickle the nose thing, real imaginative) and they took a picture of me with the shaving cream on my nose. I was less embarrassed by the prank and more by the picture of me asleep! Clearly I’m not at all bitter and totally over it now. ;)

  35. September 3, 2014 / 6:10 PM

    LOL the cup holder thing is too funny but true! How stupid especially for newer cars. You don’t look bad when you sleep at all!

  36. September 3, 2014 / 7:33 PM

    why on earth would anyone want that blanket!! and i’m totally down with getting pissed at technology and then realizing I’M the reason it’s not working.

  37. September 3, 2014 / 10:03 PM

    That blanket is BAD. I sleep in bizarre ways as well! So awkward! xo

  38. September 3, 2014 / 11:55 PM

    Haha!!Omg the throw blanket! Can you imagine receiving one as a gift? That is ridiculous.. XO

  39. September 4, 2014 / 1:01 AM

    Bahahah… I’m so glad you included a sleeping picture after talking about it – otherwise I would’ve had to ask you to send me one direct!

  40. September 4, 2014 / 1:43 AM

    That blanket is insane. I wouldn’t be able to sleep if that thing was anywhere in my house.

    The questions thing on Pinterest makes me rage. It’s nonsense.

    And my cup holders are terrible, too. Seriously, who designs these? Have they ever had a portable drink?

  41. September 4, 2014 / 3:54 AM

    lol-ing all over the place at these confessions! That book is PRECIOUS, keep it forever and always. I didn’t have time to repaint my toes before bed last night and I literally felt naked and afraid all day, it was ridiculous. Um, sleeping pictures? Hilarious. I need to start collecting some of Tyler haha.

  42. September 4, 2014 / 4:49 PM

    That blanket is creepy. It’s almost as creepy as the blanket Steve’s mom gave me with Jesus angels on it. Not that I have a problem with Jesus or angels, I just don’t want them displayed in my house in the form of a fleece blanket. I’m thisclose to convincing Steve we need a nespresso. Since our Keurig and the vue cups are being discontinued, we will need it!

  43. September 4, 2014 / 6:23 PM

    hahaha aww your all about me book is adorable!!! i love how your feet had a perfect manicure, but they were colored purple and black. lol.

    oh man, that poor nespresso machine. itwas just thirsty for water!~ glad your mom helped you figure it out :)

  44. September 4, 2014 / 7:01 PM

    I’m freakin’ dying over here!!!! First of all, I’m about as angelic as a dinosaur! Bahah. Second of all, your painted toes picture as a child is hilarious! And you were cute as a button! Oh and I can’t freaking believe you pour anything and everything on your plants! Too funny! :)

  45. September 5, 2014 / 12:52 PM

    I can’t wait to buy that nespresso machine :) this post cracked me up. Love! Xo
