And These are My Confessions


Thursday, March 10, 2016

Another installment of Confessional Thursday with Jess is here! I don't know about you, but I love getting things off my chest. Wanna join in? Grab the button below and link up with Jess here.

I confess that I bought another item from Pearl and Monroe this week. I bought one just last week and told myself that no more unless I really need something for Mexico. Like shorts because I am not sure if my shorts will fit from last year. Breast feeding and pumping make you skinny (or it did for me) and I was rocking the smallest size I have been for years. But I decided I must have this shirt since I wanted one last time and they were sold out before I could even comment with small and my email. I can't wait to wear this cozy soft floral shirt this Spring.

I confess that I had my annual exam yesterday. I haven't had one since 6 weeks post delivery and it was time. And I made my appointment about two months ago not knowing I was going to have abdominal surgery. You know that part where they press on your ovaries and uterus from the inside and outside? Ya mega ouch. My stomach is still very bruised and tender to the touch, so this wasn't the best idea. But if I cancelled, I wouldn't have gotten in for another month or two. Ugh. 

I confess that I am scared of my annual results. A few years ago I had a scare with cervical cancer and had a punch biopsy and a leep procedure to remove all the abnormal cells. My grandmother and great aunt both had similar procedures and one even had a hysterectomy because she had cervical cancer. So I always get nervous while waiting for my results. A tough week ahead.

I confess that I really want this shirt, but I can't justify it. But it is so cheap. $12.99 plus shipping.

I confess that I need some quick help with a birthday gift for my friend. I am stumped. We are going to wine country next Saturday to celebrate her 30th birthday. That is my girls weekend and I can't wait! I get to drink wine and beer, eat yummy food and catch up with my favorites. 

I confess that I cried when I read about Jenn's father in this post. Breaks my heart that she is going through this and for her sweet father. Please send her and her family your prayers.

I confess that I feel like a slug since I can't work out. I use working out as my stress release, plus it is good for my health and heart and it allows me to eat ALL the cheeseburgers and pasta I want.

I confess that I am jealous of my friend's house makeovers. I want my kitchen redone NOW. My oven is so old that only one part of the double oven works.

I confess that after seeing so many people like the Easter Starburst Jelly Beans that I bought some, but in tropical and I am not sure if I love them or hate them. Some are good and some aren't. 

I confess that I can't get enough sleep right now. I have been going to bed around 8:30 or 9 pm and sleeping until 5 am (8 am on the weekends). I blame it on recovery. You recover while you sleep, so I need more sleep than ever right now.

And that is all I have got for today. Enjoy your Thursday and don't forget to link up.

  1. I feel like you and I are kindred souls. I have had the same procedure plus cyro in 2008 for abnormal cells. This was my first pap since E (11 month later) and everything was fine for the first time in forever! And I will email you about Jenn...

  4. we just keep being more alike! I had a punch biopsy and a LEEP procedure done last Fall too. I go in for my annual in another month or two to double check if my Dr. got everything. It's very nerve-wracking. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts, friend! I hope the results are good.

    1. Haha, yes I have. It feels like a ton. And when I had my appointment, I had to catch them up on everything since I saw a different doctor for my twin pregnancy. She was astonished by everything that has happened in the last 14 months.

  10. Good luck with your exam results!

    Since you're going to wine country, a candle from this etsy shop might be cute. I just got one as a thank you gift for a friend who owns a winery and it was beautiful.

    Also I am so jealous of other peoples homes and their GORGEOUS kitchens. As much as I love HGTV, we just don't have the funds right now to redo stuff so I think I need to stop watching all of the shows!
