Midweek Confessions

2.08.2012



I'm joining in with E, Myself, and I for Midweek Confessions.

I confess:

I'm completely addicted to Amazon one-click shopping. I usually get on there to look for one thing and end up buying 5 because it's just too easy! It does save us money in the long run because it keeps me from buying stuff here, but it is a bad habit I need to break!

I drink a minimum of 2 large cups of coffee per day. Coffee makes me happy.

I'm dying for a Diet Coke RIGHT now! I've had one this week and I swear as soon as I have one I start craving them. I'm sitting here chugging my water instead.

I miss Target.



I have tons of blog posts I want to write but by the time I sit down at the computer at the end of the day I'm too tired/lazy to write them.

I haven't started Emerson's baby book. I plan on doing a photo book instead of a traditional baby book and I've found a lot of cute ideas but I haven't started putting it together. I did do one of her first week and it took me about 5 hours total so I can't imagine what kind of time it will take to document every second of her first year.

I really, really want to get a blog book printed for 2010 and 2011 but I think they're kind of expensive!

I have 1,959 pins on Pinterest and I've actually completed about 5 projects that I've pinned. Oh well- at least I'll have plenty of ideas catalogued for when I need them. :)

Speaking of projects, I haven't sewn a single thing since I made Emerson's fabric book for Christmas. I really want to but it's just not possible with little miss crawling around like a wild girl.

I took the iPad to the gym with me last night and watched a tv show while I ran. It made the time go by really fast but it seemed kind of weird.

I'm in love with this song:


I love me some Bob Marley and could listen to it all day. Change it to a kid's song and actually let a little kid sing it... melt my heart. I first heard it on Loni's blog and immediately went to iTunes to download it. While I was there, I found a few more songs by Elizabeth Mitchell. LOVE her! We've had her songs on repeat for several days now. And don't even get me started on her version of You Are My Sunshine. It makes me tear up every.single.time.

I can't imagine why.

girl I am totally the same way with Amazon!! We have Amazon Prime where we get free 2 day shipping on most stuff and it's soooo hard not to just shop online all the time for stuff because it's FREE shipping and almost everything is cheaper on Amazon! So really, I'm saving money I guess!
I am totally the same way you are about diet coke-except with sweets for me. The second i have ONE cookie, I just want 10 more! ah!
love that picture of sweet emerson! beautiful baby blues :)

Oh man coffee and diet coke. my favorites! I just have to say that I love your little girls name. When we were expecting our first baby..we were certain it was a girl and her name was going to be Emerson. Well we were wrong but I still love the name :)

J and A said...

I wish we had Target to begin with, nor do they ship here, either does Amazon! I know. Deprived! :) Where do you print blog books? I have wanted to do this...

Andrea said...

I love Amazon, I buy the prime membership and you can't beat having free 2 day shipping. Is that available where you live? I drink so much coffee, I'm ashamed to admit how much. And girlfriend, don't crave on the coke! You saw my post about what it does to your body! I have Gracie's newborn - 3 month book done, but I haven't touched it since then! You will find the motivation eventually =)

Megan said...

I want to get stationed overseas so bad, but I keep telling Jacob how much I would miss Target. Im sorry, I don't know how you do it lol.

I went crazy repining your pins! You have awesome boards!!!

And as for Bob Marley, I can't say enough how much I love him. You should listen to the Three Plus pandora station. They are a Hawaiian band and the station plays a lot of Bob. It is what Vince listens to every nap lol. And Im listening to that song as I am typing this and it is adorable!!!

Mallorie said...

Ditto for amazon!!! And Emerson is so cute!!! I love the tiny bit of hair covering the top of her ear! So sweet :-)

Natalie said...

Oh I know Amazon is so addicting! Plus the free shipping if you get to $25 sucks me in everytime! I also, LOVE coffee. We would so be friends in real life!

BlessedMama said...

I would so take my ipad to watch while I ran too, that is an awesome idea!
Emerson is so cute!

SushiMama said...

I heart Pinterest, but I'm horrible about actually DOING the stuff I pinned.

Harriet said...

I will do anything to avoid having to focus on my workouts at the gym! :)
Also, I think someone should start a Target-aholics support group. I seriously go there every single (work) day.

Happily A Housewife said...

oohhh I love Amazon, and you are right it is just TOO easy! I am a new follower, thanks for stopping by my site, and I can't wait to continue reading!

Your daughter is adorable!

Catie said...

I have made photo books for my little boy, I just haven't ordered them yet. I think it was a lot easier than trying to make a regular picture album!

Beth Ann said...

Amazon one click is super dangerous! ;) I have made purchases on my phone during a late night feeding before!!! WAY.TOO.EASY!

Coffee totally makes me happy, too. And now that I see that you have 2 cups a day, I wonder why I limit myself to 1?!?! I should probably stick with 1 though considering the fact that I load it with calorie-laden creamer. ;) (40 calories per TBS, I know this because I log it every single day in MFP!)

Mom said...

Glad we got to talk today. Looking forward to a Target shopping event when you come. Emerson is growing so much. The picture of her is precious. Love you.

Katie said...

I can't imagine life without Target!

-Lauren said...

That many pins! You are my hero..I need to follow you, what is your pinterest name? Love Emerson's gorgeous blue eyes in that picture. Daddy better lock her up and keep the boys away!

Mrs. Magnolia said...

I'm love with coffee and Target too. Both probably terrible things to be in love with. Im going to hopefully hunt you down on Pinterest so I can see all your pins.

Katie said...

I am a BIG fan of buying random things in Target that I don't really need...very therapeutic!

Joeylee said...

I love amazon and I love Target, they have so much stuff that I wish I could buy. Emerson is adorable as always!

KellyDiane said...

You are doing so great on your fitness goals- the diet coke thing would be the hardest for me! E is precious as always!!

Anna & Kirby said...

I want to have a blog book too... let me know if you find anything less expensive. I might just break though since this has been my documentation for everything!
