Confessional Thursday

When I first started blogging, one of my favorite link ups was one hosted by the lovely Leslie, who blogged over at A Blonde Ambition.  Each Friday she hosted a weekly confessional link up and I took part in the link up pretty much every week.  Leslie was always so kind and sweet and very genuine on her blog.  While I was in Europe last summer, I got the sad news that Leslie had passed away from the heart complications she had been battling on and off throughout the last few months.  

I will never forget the way the blogging community came together to honor Leslie's memory.  It was very touching.  Just a couple weeks ago, Jess from The Newly decided to re-launch the confessional link up kinda as another way to honor Leslie's memory and to let us all get some stuff our chest by confessing some things! 

So I am very excited to be joining in on the fun today!



I CONFESS.......

// I've absolutely hated being an adult this week.  Mostly because I had to spend a nice little chunk of change on my car.  Stupid tires and brakes decided they needed to be replaced at the exact same time.  Selfish.  Don't they know I have two plane tickets to FUN places I need to buy and an apartment to furnish.

// I've been the "mean" teacher this week with very little patience with my student's because I am so in need of a break.  Thank goodness for Spring Break.  But I do feel a tad guilty for being so "salty" as my students told me yesterday.

// I'm getting my teeth cleaned later today and I am dreading it.  Mouth pain is the worst kind of pain for me and I just know it's going to be awful.  Just awful. (On the plus side I get the morning to relax rather than go to work.

// All I want is to eat a whole bag of the Reece's Eggs.  I'm obsessed with them.

// I cannot get enough of this picture of Will and Kate and their ADORABLE children.  This is serious perfection.



// I've been on the hunt for some not so high wedges for the spring/summer.  And I recently saw these on Emily at A Little Bit of Emily's birthday wish list post and it was love at first sight.  I think I've found my new wedges!  So thanks Emily! :)

// This post by Helene from Helene in Between is hilarious.  In it she describes all the presidential candidates as if they were the "kids we all knew in high school."  You know...the jock, the nerd, the bully...etc.  Just read it.  You'll get a good laugh, I promise.

// The button for this link up is probably one of my all time favorite buttons.  I mean look at how pretty it is! Well done Jess! :)

// I am still on the hunt for a new cell phone case.  I've been searching for at least 3 months.

// I am almost 2 years away from being the big 3-0 and I'm just not sure how I feel about it.


Alrighty that's all I've got this week.  Gotta say that felt good!  

Happy Thursday!

Everyone is in need of a break - students and teacher alike! I think all the teachers are extra crabby because the students are also a little crazy. Today was my last day of teaching, so I'm starting spring break a day early!


ENJOY!!

Also, adulting is the worst with cars. I'm sorry yours was so expensive :( Hopefully that will be the last time for a while!

Will and Kate are serious family goals. How are they so perfect?! Your thirties are SO much better than your twenties. Own it :)

Good luck with your teeth cleaning today, I know that you were dreading it! That totally sucks about stuff going wrong with your car! When it rains, it pours, right? I'm so jealous that you're going to be on Spring Break next week! I hope that you'll get to make it out to the Rodeo!

Is it just me, or does Kate look like shes had work done in that picture!? I mean shes gorgeous, but she looks different to me!? Maybe just the lighting!? I hear ya on adulting..its hard. haha

I've been dying over that picture of Will & Kate, too - they have the most adorable family! Hoping spring break comes quickly for you!!

I've been so salty to my kids too, I need a break bad. We have two more weeks until our first holiday (that's two weeks off) and I'm taking a day off each of the two weeks because my parents are here/finding out the gender so I am counting down!! Let me know if you find a case, I'm on the hunt too!
