I Confess ... Just Because

I Confess ...  It's Joe's (the Beau) birthday next week and i have yet to buy him anything - i always try and get that "wow" gift but i'm coming up empty - and i feel pretty darn crappy about it - after 8.5 years you'd think i know a good 'wow' gift (sorry babes, hopefully i'll come up with something, but it's not looking good, not even foolin' with ya)

Just Because  ...  I send out hand written letters, sometime i'll even include a lil artwork, to friends just because i think of them and i think hand writing a letter is always more personal then a text or phone call, i like to think they have a real big smile on when they open the mail :o)

I Confess  ... March 22, 2011 changed my world (when i got my BRCA diagnosis) - i never thought i would ever say this - but i'm ready to say 'yes' and have a 'bun in the oven' - it's crazy what cancer will do to a person - (who am i? - cray cray i know) - and yes i'm sh*t scared about it 'happening'

Just Because  ...  I will show up to work in sweats and some really unprofessional outfits at times (boyfriend jeans/yoga pants/Uggs), and well it's really just because i can, if i know no one will be in the office and i won't be meeting with anyone, why not?

I Confess  ...  One of my pet peeves is when people wear sunglasses indoors or at night, i mean really, do you need your shades on when your eating in a restaurant or grocery shopping? - and if the street lights are on then you don't need sunglasses, no really, i'm telling you the truth - i will make fun of you, just sayin'

Just Because  ...  Given' the opportunity i will watch Captain Ron, Jumanji, and The Holiday on repeat -  mixed in with Finding Nemo, Cars, and Ratatouille - and yea i kinda' might do this in my pajamas un-showered on a Saturday/Sunday when Joe is working OT - just because i can and no one is looking (friends: please don't ring my door bell that day, i will be a hot mess, i know you don't care, it's just for your visual safety)

  1. JUMANJI! See, now I love you a billion times more because you mentioned JUMANJI - one of my favorite movies eva! I only wish the board game would have actually held the same type of adventure {it so didn't, but I suppose I shouldn't have expected it to}. :/

  2. Hi Erika. Following you from I confess hop. I would wear my sunglasses at night for a long time, oops. In my defense they were prescription and the tint was light.

  3. I want to slap people who wear their sunglases at night (no offense to anyone!). I don't understand why anyone would not want to be able to see.

    Thanks for linking up!

  4. Love this post, darling!
    So true about the shades!


  5. Seriously the indoor/night time sunglass wearers - why are you still wearing them?
    Good luck finding Joe a present. There is little gift giving magic between my husband and I. We are usually very open about our wish lists. That being said, I still have a few tricks up my sleeve. Hmm, a trip or spa/something relaxing is always nice!

  6. I confess that unpainted toe nails are my pet peeve. I don't want to see anyone's naked toe nails!!!!

  7. What a great post. I feel like I know you a bit better. I had a friend, past tense...had a friend, who wore her sunglasses inside and at night. Drove me nuts! Obnoxious to no end.

  8. I confess that I've been on a Hanson kick lately...their music reminds me of the good old days!

  9. Yes! What's up with the sunglasses? They are just trying to be cool and .. they don't want us to know who they are looking at!

  10. If Jumanji is on I have to watch it...I will stop what I'm doing and watch it. I look for that wow gift all the time and it does get harder with the years!!

    Just because I can I'm delaying calling people for work things!! =)
