Confessions – You Don’t Want to Miss These

Welcome back Wednesday hooray for the downward slope now to the weekend.  It’s been a little while since I’ve gotten some confessions off my chest.  I pretty much can never write these posts without thinking of Usher sliding across the floor.  I mean how many takes do you think that took?

You’re welcome.  Now you can have that song stuck in your head all morning like I do.  Linking up with Kathy let’s do this.

I confess every weekend I have all plans to get posts done ahead of time and like always I’m up finishing things up at 11 at night when I have to be up at 5 to teach Barre.   I swear I’m more creative and witty when I get my second wind around this time.  Do you write daily or plan ahead of time?

I confess.  I really need to start prepping for my bachelorette party.  I went to my bridesmaids house Kelly in the middle of the week so we could look at bridesmaid dresses and do fun girl stuff (side note I think I finally found one fingers crossed!!!)  Glasses Bottles of wine later…..I’m home after my sweet Uber cab drop off……I’ve eaten an entire Costco cupcake (that was previously frozen) and then I slept through my alarm.  Clearly I can’t hang.

In the same day as I was at work making sure I had washed all the cupcake crumbs out of my hair.  I got text messages from my old college roomies who had stumbled upon some of my sweet CD mixes (see I’ve been sharing the world of fabulous music even back then).  I mean how random they both found my epic CD jams that I had made them and texted me both on the same day.

You are welcome.  Clearly Phatty needs to be spelled with a P…..and two t’s and mixx with the double xx’s.  In case you didn’t know.

Throwback Thursday Wednesday to my beautiful roomies at UF who I still keep in touch with all the time!  Thank goodness that random roommates ending up being lifelong friends!

I actually saw Alexis up in New York the day before I got engaged!  I will never forget her sheer excitement when I told her the next morning!

Ashley and I also send each other videos of ourselves doing some serious car singing and dancing. All at red lights I promise. Thank goodness for tinted windows.  Otherwise someone may try to commit me for my sheer craziness.  My last epic car dance was to the Little Jon Bend Ova’ song…..something about getting your knees to touch your elbows….just try it.  It’s harder than you think.

I confess we rolled out our new warm up in Barre.  Usually I demo a few things and then circle around and help with corrections but when it’s new I have to demo basically the whole thing while enthusiastically talking into the mic.  Well last night by the end during the pushup segment I could barely catch my breath but clearly couldn’t let on.  By the end I was sweating like I just ran a few miles.  Definitely time to kick back that cardio right?

Clearly this was not me by the end……

I mean if Nicki Minaj can look like that just lifting 2 lbs weights in a thong bikini clearly I’ll be okay right?

Seriously y’all I watched that video once and I was disturbed.  I almost want it taken off the air in a straight protest of women’s rights.  The most degrading thing I’ve ever watched but (<—literally) that is a soapbox I don’t have even have enough words for right now.

Moving along.  I confess….I’ve eaten taco soup every day for lunch this week and I have no food in my house…..I stared down at that soup tonight and decided to go with peanut butter instead.  Cookie Butter more specifically.  From Trader Joe’s.  Out of the jar. With a butter knife….because all the spoons are dirty.  I have started the countdown of officially moving out of my place can’t you tell.  It was either that or thawing out another Costco cupcake……

Let me leave you with this gem.  How to Meet Women in the Grocery Store.

I honestly can’t even type this out I’m laughing so hard.  Is that not seriously the creepiest thing you’ve ever seen?  Why is he cruising down the makeup aisle??  That makes him that much more of a creepster!  I like his 3 steps.  If you have 5 minutes to burn today youtube search “how to meet women in the grocery store“.  If this is the advice men are following… I should really get into a new career path!  Hope you are having a fabulous day!!! xoxoxo

    Wow… creepster on aisle 5! Ok, I have to watch the Nicki video now, what’s the name of it?

  2. Just recently I ran across a handful of my old mixed cd’s and I was blasting them in the kitchen while cleaning. Some of the music on their had me laughing so hard! I had a very eclectic taste in music :D What music video is that with Nikki Minaj?

  3. I so remember all the fun mixes I used to have in my car back in the day – and it always makes me smile to see what I wrote on it!! I always wonder about you barre instructors with the routines and wonder if you legs shake as much as ours do – good to know we’re not the only ones in pain lol!! I’ve dated chili for the past week at lunch – don’t even want to talk about it lol!

  4. OMG is that guy for real!? lol!!!!! Also, I love mixed tapes/CDs they bring back awesome memories!

  5. Elle Sees says:

    my mixx 26 (two xx’s too!) from many years ago needs to get back into rotation, i think. i cannot stand that NM video! bleh. and how creepy is that guy? hehe.

  6. Oh my God! Is that guy for real? I had to stop watching it because he was so creepy! Too funny.
    xo, Whitney and Blaire
    Peaches In A Pod

  7. OMG the name of your CD! BAHAHAHAHHAA that’s genius.

    when i was a good blogger, i would pre-plan and write all of my posts a week in advance. now that work shit all over my life, none of that happens :(

    thanks for linking up!

    Vodka and Soda

  8. Stacy G says:

    That guy, Stop! Who is going to marry him after that video. haha. Oh and I’ve been told I need to watch the Nikki minaj video but haven’t yet lol. XO

  9. shut the fuck up. this is why i’m single (also because i swear like a sailor, probably). USING THOSE STEPS. publix here i come.

    also cd mix’s are the dog’s tuxedo. i still listen to my college ones from time to time and it’s so fun!

  10. Miche says:

    OMG that video – super creep lol! Also, the mix cds, I need to search for mine, they’re probably completely absurd as well!

    Miche from Buttons and Birdcages

  11. Old mix cds are my favorite!!!! I listened to a few of mine a few weeks back and they brought back all the memories! ALL OF THEM!

    We found out a few weeks ago that Trader Joes is finally coming to Birmingham. You have no clue how excited I am to stock up on all my old favorites! Oh how I missed it! Cookie butter will be one of them!

  12. LOL I totally still have all my old mix cd’s! Kinda scared to see what’s on them now… And yes, the Anaconda video is frightening. I swear her ass isn’t real. I try to write my posts in advance… usually it doesn’t work. And I used to try to do all my pictures on the weekend but now my weekends are too busy and it’s raining every day after work so… yeah. Fail on my part. And now I’m off to listen to Usher… :)

    <3, Pamela

  13. Brianne says:

    Haha I still have a bunch of mix CDs from high school that I randomly pop in my player.

  14. LOL I’m dying over that video. Seriously?! Guys are unreal. Anyways, how exciting that you think you found your bridesmaids dresses! Even better that you did it over a glass (or bottles) or wine. Those CD mixes are seriously the best – I’m pretty sure a few of those from me are floating around my hometown, too.

  15. Becky M says:

    So right about that Niki Minaj song – disturbing is the right word. Like for real?!?! And none of it made any sense either. So freaking weird!!

  16. My sister sent me a bunch of cds that I made for her back when we were in high school and I must have had a lot of time on my hands because I write a NOVEL on each CD! Lol!

  17. MarlaJan says:

    I’m dying to know what’s on the Fun Phatty Car Mixx!!!!
    And now I must go watch the Nikki Minaj video

  18. old mix cds are so hilarious! i have a few power hour cds from college — each song is a minute long..for a drink. yikes i cant do those anymore! xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  19. I cleaned out my car earlier this week to get ready to sell it and was DYING over my old CD’s!! I’ve actually been listening to them ever since.. love the throwback jams!

  20. I definitely don’t schedule my posts any more than 12 hours in advance. It is a rare day I have more than one drafted. Maybe once winter is here and I don’t want to do anything outside my apartment I’ll be better about it. Making a grocery shopping list now and including the taco soup ingredients.

  21. Darcy says:

    I seriously loved making cds for people and decorating them! Creating a playlist on Spotify just does not have the same satisfaction haha!

  22. Have you seen the Maroon 5 video for Animals? It is CREEPY! Just thought you might like :)

  23. Ashley says:

    oh my gosh, I cannot stop laughing over the grocery store video!! Such a creepster!

  24. That guy in the grocery store, LOL. Poor dude doesn’t have a clue. That is great that you may have found a bridesmaid dress!! Yay!! I have a giant CD book and there are some mix CD’s from college in there. Ahh those were the days! :-) I’ll be doing my cardio this morning and thinking about Nicki Minaj and her 2 pound dumbbells. Oh and her form isn’t very good.. haha. I hope that you are having a great day so far! :-)

  25. Mree says:

    I always draft my posts in advance except for Monday’s post. Although, I do fall behind with it. I totally agree sometimes that second wind you get is filled with creativity. When I was packing up my old office, I found a bunch of mix cd’s in the back of my filing cabinet. Great memories. That guy is so creepy!! Happy Hump Day!!

  26. Aimee Rose says:

    I am so with you, I always think I’m going to get a head start during the weekend, and I NEVER do! I’m always writing my posts the night before. Love the mixed cd’s! Can’t wait to see what you chose for bridesmaids dresses!

  27. Ah I love finding old cd mixes! Always brings back funny and tipsy memories from college!

  28. Christina says:

    oh my god. both of those people are so creepy with their leery eyes! they deserve each other!

  29. I wish I had sound here at work to watch that video haha, sounds creepy for sure! I’ve yet to watch that Nicki video, but oh I can only imagine…

  30. How many takes did it take Usher to do this? AS MANY AS NEEDED – I’m sure the girl didn’t mind one bit. HAHA!

    And – yeah – bottles of wine will do that – I can’t wait to drink wine on Sunday – hehehe.

    Nicki Minaj offends me on so many levels – I really am not that type of person – but there is something about her – that makes me fill with rage.

    And yeah – creepster – total fricking creepster!

  31. 365HANGERS says:

    We can think of a million worse things to have for dinner every night than taco soup lol and we’re so with you on the Nicki Minaj video.

    xx 365hangers

  32. Kristen says:

    that song is always in my head on wednesdays lol.
    um that video is beyond creepy lol.
    i have been planning posts for awhile now, but there’s something fun about whipping something up the night before.

  33. ugh her video= ew, you are so right. Ummm get someone on that bachelorette planning for sure girl! Happy phatty hump day! xoxo

  34. If Allen came was giving me long eye contact in the grocery store I’d probably call the cops! Eww he’s creepy!!

  35. Ooooh bachelorette party so fun! Dying over “phatty”!! LOLOL

  36. I’m going to be leery of any man in the grocery now :)

  37. Fun Phatty Car Mixx!! Lol, I’m absolutely loving it!! Mostly because I am sure I have several CDs labeled exactly the same way! The great part? When I listen to them now, I still feel like they are “fun phatty mixx” CDs! Ha!

  38. I love that mixx has two “x”, lololol. Love it!!

  39. omg that man in the grocery store… is he FOR REAL??? p.s. all the views on his page (literally a total of 10) are probably viewers that came from your blog probably!! and mix cds omgggg i have SOOOO many. good old days!

  40. I’m just like you… I sit down on Sundays to get a few posts scheduled so I’m not sitting on the computer every night and even if I have 2 or 3 lined up I find myself still writing throughout the week *sigh*.

  41. P!nky says:

    Love the gif!!!! Hooray for old school CDs with awesome names ;)!

  42. Can we just talk about how Usher also has the perfect butt grab after the pristine knee-slide? I’m guessing 27 takes.

    And no, I never plan my posts ahead. I’m usually wrapping up edits the night before. Aint nobody got time fo dat.

  43. I totally always think of Usher everytime I read confessions too hahaha! I’m a big post procrastinator too! I’m always up late working on my post for the next day!! OMG the burned CDs are the besssssttt! I just found some of mine and jammed out haha!! That video! What the heck! I was waiting for like a joke but he’s dead serious hahahaha! How about girls look down because they are super creeped out by you!

    <3 Shannon

  44. Usher knows how to move. I will leave it at that hah. LOVE old CD mix (“mixx”) finds. You need to post your playlists asap!

  45. Zelle B. says:

    This is too great! Love this! I try to do most of my posts ahead of time but… we’ll just leave it at that.
    xo! Southern Style

  46. Erin LFF says:

    How many takes did it take? One- because Usher’s the MAN ;) I go through phases where I have blog stuff planned a week or so out, and then weeks where I have literally NO material/pictures/ideas!

  47. I’m so sad that it won’t let me have the video! And CD mixes are just one of those things that you can’t get back. How in the world are we supposed to share our favorite songs with out friends now?

  48. You always have me cracking up. Love a sweet old Mixx (can’t forget the second x!) tape/cd! And a good car jam sesh!

  49. Bahaha awesome confessions. CD mixes are the bomb dot com. I still make them on occasion, or at least pretend I’ve decorated my Spotify playlists with awesome heart doodles.

  50. Meagan says:

    LOL I love the old cd’s, amazing. I can’t play the video :(

  51. I couldn’t even watch that whole Nicki Minaj music video…but have you seen the parody? Oh my gosh girl, it’s HILARIOUS!
    Hahaha your writing on those two cd’s…so funny! Gotta love those throwback jams.

  52. Maggie says:

    hahahahaha OMG. Amazing!!! And I always have the intentions of prepping posts in advance and usually am good about it, but not lately!! oops! :)


  53. Bahahahaha…. the double xx’s… I’m dying!
    Nicki is hot in that video, can’t lie. BUT the song is just so fucking HORRIBLE. I mean, good lord. Why would you ruin that song like that?!

  54. Love those CD mixes! I miss making those. I always tell myself I will write all of my blog posts on the weekends…and it never happens. :)

  55. Jill Jones says:

    i wish i EVER had the foresight to plan my writing…LOL. so there, now i have confessed too :)

  56. Yikes, I had those same colored Memorex CDs and I spent all the time I should have spent studying making mixes!

  57. I freaking love the mix CDs, I miss making them.

  58. omfg. so i know i commented the other day but really i didnt know which nicki minaj video that was so i found it. oh my god. SERIOUSLY??? gross.

  59. Alexis says:

    Love my roomies! How would I have survived college without the Fun Phatty Mixx of Tiesto meets Lil John?

    I’m 100% with you on that Nikki Minaj abomination. Ugh.

  60. Kay R. says:

    haha mix tape CDsss … Oh how i forgot about mine. I wonder if I can even find them!

  61. Teh Megan says:

    1. Taco soup is delicious, but you made the right choice with the cookie pb.

    2. I can’t get behind Nikki minaj. I’ll just never be that cool.
