I CONFESS...

/ that I thought these renovations would already be started. Oh how wrong I was. You have to make several appointments with contractors, go pick out materials, have the cabinet people come over, go to another place to get your flooring picked out since you aren't sure about the first one you picked out, get some bids, buy your appliances and basically figure it all out before they can even start. Wah, I want my new kitchen now.

/ that I picked out the prettiest quartz counter tops. Is it weird that I dream about these things?

/ that this week went swimmingly with my husband gone. The girls were pretty good for me and we had lots of mommy and daughters time.

/ that I had the cheapest and best lunch yesterday. I had some leftover tomato soup from my favorite soup shop (Gino's soup - it is local to Reno, but you can find it at Whole Foods all over the US now) and I paired it with avocado toast. Seriously soooo good and healthy.

/ that I bought a bunch of stuff at Lucky and Amazon yesterday and I can't wait to for it to arrive at my house. Don't worry, I used gift cards from my birthday. I will have a new pair of flats, black riding boots and two shirts coming to my door very soon.

/ that I am worried my car dealership won't do much if my car "sort of" passes the oil consumption test. If it fails, I get a new engine (or most of one). If it passes with flying colors, I want them to buy my car back so I can get something else. I think I have a lemon and don't want to risk what could happen with kids in the car all the time. If it sort of passes, then I can request and plead my case and hope they fix it. Otherwise, a new car it is. I love my Subaru and would love to get another because it's not likely to get another lemon, but also it opens doors to other cars. I know I NEED something AWD and big enough for my family. Options, options, options.

/ that we have a few crazy busy weekends ahead and then I am off to Europe for two weeks. So once again, I am asking anyone who wants to write a guest post, please let me know, so I can get you scheduled. I love my readers and want to share their blogs with you all!

/ that my little daredevils scare me. My girls are climbing on everything lately and this week Sutton fell off a table at daycare. Yep, she tries to climb it daily and this time she succeeded and fell down. Poor baby girl has a red mark/bruise on her face.

/ that I keep finding gray hairs and I freak out a bit inside. Why am I getting gray hairs? I am only 33.

/ that I secretly hope my loving husband brings me back something fabulous from NYC. I love it there and wish it was me there, not him.

And that's a wrap for another round of confessions.

  1. What is it with our girls being little daredevils? Emmy is constantly up on something she shouldn't be, like the counter. She's too stinking smart at this point and pushes chairs over to it that I've moved away. Ahhh!! We'll get through this together friend.

  2. Wyatt is a wild man! He climbed on Cash's dump truck & onto his Lego container. These children are going to give me a heart attack!

  3. I need to go check out that soup at Whole Foods! I love a good tomato soup! I'm sorry to hear that about your car and I hope it works out in your favor.

    Ah my girls are daredevils too!! My son is an angel compared to them, LOL

  4. I used to have a Subaru (outback)...and it was kind of a lemon too. Surprising, because Subaru's are supposed to be great cars. Anyway, I now have a Prius V and LOVE it. It's as big as the Outback. My husband is a car guy (he's completely rebuilt a car from basically nothing) and says that our Prius is the best car he's ever owned, so that's definitely saying something. Worth looking into if you do end up needing a new car.

    1. I do color my hair. Ha. I might have had them longer and had no clue. That is funny. I wish I was excited about it, but I am not. Ha.

  8. Dont worry - I started getting gray hairs in my 20's.

  10. I'm so glad that things went well for you this week! I know it's SO TOUGH being a single mommy. I hate it when Brian has to travel.

    And girl, I totally just found my first gray hair ever on my head the other day!! I had to call Brian over to make sure that it was really gray and not playing tricks on me. I'm not ready for that yet... I'm only 34!

  13. Tomato soup and avocado toast is delicious! And FYI I will be 34 in November and I have been getting gray hairs for a few years. I blame it on my kid! LOL!

  14. I got my first gray at 15! And I was lucky, the boys in my family get them at 11! We're 1/4 Native American and apparently, that comes along with it. My brother is 30 and salt and pepper.

  15. I am sorry to hear that your car is having issues. I completely understand that you want to have a safe and reliable vehicle for your family. We have been a Subaru family for many years and have loved every one that we have owned. A few years ago we made the decision to only purchase vehicles that are AWD as you never know what the weather is going to do around here!
