confessions.

Thursday, November 15, 2012


If you've followed my blog for any amount of time, you'll know that I disappear from time to time all the time without warning - I'm just super annoying like that, it's how I roll.

I knew heading back to work would put a wrench in my blogging plans, but it turns out that the wrench is actually a bullet in disguise. What's the world coming to when you can't even trust that a wrench is a wrench?! 

So not only should I be stripped of my self-appointed bloggess title, but a few of these confessions are sure to make you think less of me... 


1. One of the main reasons I'm sticking with this blogging gig - aside from the obvious (ie. not being a quitter, wanting to document the kids' younger years, having a creative outlet, etc.) - is so I continue getting free stuff. 

2. Three months ago I threw a large jar of Nutella in the garbage; it had been sitting in our cupboard for who-knows-how-long barely touched and I couldn't find an expiry date. Fast forward 90 days and one mail sample later... I'm eating this Ferrero Rocher alternative like it's the doctor's order. Turns out I'm not a 'Nutella on toast' kinda girl, I prefer it on a spoon spatula multiple times throughout the day.

3. I legitimately LOVE being back at work and I'm not just saying that so my stay-at-home mom friends can stop feeling sorry for me.
my view of "Entertainment Alley" 
drug busts, photo shoots, heavy petting sessions... I've seen it all. 

4. I'm fairly certain my co-workers think I'm disgustingly spoiled. Not only did I come back to the 'best schedule ever' (4 days one week / 3 days the next), but I got my corner office with a view back (see above) AND after 5 days on the job, went up to Sparkling Hills with Mr. Movember for a weekend getaway. With all this luck I'm thinking I must have been a leprechaun in my past life.
it's hard to take him seriously anywhere when his face is growing a rodent

5. Next to the definition of 'indecisive shopper' is a photo of me looking disgruntled. 
this is actually a photo of me being annoyed about the rain situation on 'straight hair day', 
but my pissed off face is fairly similar to my expression of uncertainty.

I'll pick something up, cart it around for awhile, tell myself "I don't really need that" and then discard it in some random aisle. I like to think of it as me familiarizing the departments with one another, but Trev doesn't see it that way. It drives Trev-bob bonkers and he now equates IKEA with his own personal hell. Not because he doesn't like Swedish-made goods (quite the contrary), it's because within those 4 walls his wife loses all control and ability to make up her flipping mind.

6. I was this close {picture my pointer finger and thumb almost touching} to buying myself a pair of Uggs 35 days before Christmas. The only thing stopping me from keeping them in my cart was that my preferred colour (camel) in my preferred size (9) was out of stock. In the end the chocolate pair I was hemming and hawing about got put down in the neighbouring book section... Warm Uggs meet risqué 50 Shades of Grey #matchmadeinCostcoheaven.

7. I'm not even sure I'll publish this nonsense, so if you're reading this consider yourself the same person minus 50 or more missing brain cells. 

** GIFTaway #4 is coming soon, but here's a sneak peek for those of your who have the patience of a 3 year old (namely Saige & I) **

I am so very tempted to get a pair of ankle high uggs ~ but, I couldn't decide if they are still relevent/cool. All I know is that they are cozy and easy to slip on. But, if not uggs, what kind of boots do you buy that look good with jeans, but are casual enough to throw on with yoga pants to go to the gym??? BTW, you and Tia shop the exact same way ~ you are a match made in hell.

Wow that IS a sweet work schedule! Glad you're loving being back at work :)

barbara@hodge:podge said...

I am glad you are happy to be back at work. I am now teaching full time after being home for 18 years {well, the last 6 I have been casual but one those days I did not feel like working, I didin't} and I LOVE having my blog as a distraction and creative outlet AND heck, the free stuff is nice too!

I totally get the whole "rain-when-your-hair-is-straightened-panic"

Bah ha ha, you kill me. So happy you're having fun being back at work! I totally miss my job some days :/ I think in the next year or two I might make my way back to the working world. I'm sick of pj pants.

Awesome! Isn't confessing midweek a nice way to brag or complain without feeling guilty...lmao!

I totally carry things around in my cart debating and then stash them somewhere random when I decide I don't in fact need to spend $25 on a a decorative ceramic owl.

And my confession of the week is I'm seriously in love with your hair. I've probably said it before (or maybe not for fear of sounding creepy) but if you could bottle and sell that shit I'd be first in line. The color is gorgeous! Plus I always love a fellow curly haired sistah!

Oh my gosh, you've definitely just described my shopping style to a t. Usually the item that is discarded is a way too cute outfit for Noah that I convince myself that he doesn't need. And then I probably buy it the next time I'm there.

Sandra Kohlmann said...

My sisters and I refer to "familiarizing the departments with one another," as "un-shopping." I've been know to un-shop an entire cart full of "needs" throughout Target. I'm sure the employees just love me!

I love your confession posts! :0)

P.S. I went to "Sparkling Hill" with a girlfriend for my 40th. Gorgeous...

E said...

As always, I love you! Love your straight hair too. And, I realized I don't even know what your job is. Can you share?

Sarah said...

christine, just bella said...

haha, I totally do that unshopping bit too, in fact I did it today at Superstore and I totally don't care. That store deserves it ( I ventured pas the joe dept and immediately got superstore rage).
Glad to hear you're enjoying work, my turn starts next week!!!

Randalin @ Harvesting Kale said...

I love your view of "entertainment alley." Super classy office, my friend.
I always get a good giggle from your confessions posts and this one didn't let me down :)

Anne said...

Brown ugh boots, meet 50 Shades of Grey. I'm DYING over here.

Damn I've missed you.

And the whole disappearing act, I've been brilliant at that lately. Please forgive me. ;)

And ps: you're pretty.

Carol@TheDesignPages said...

Wow, you're back at work. Poor thing. KIDDING! I read that part about enjoying it so yay for you:) I have been living in Kelowna for a full year and haven't yet made it to Sparkling Hills, beside a drive up to the front door. Must make that happen!!

Alyx said...

Pahahaha, I am the exact same way when I'm shopping. I'm also the exact same way with my nutella. Win.
