–Last Thursday at lunch I went shopping at The Pink Tulip, a local boutique. I found a pair of jeggings and tried them on in my size. The same size I have been in pants since forever. (Probably 2005) They were too big. I went down a size. They fit like a glove. I proceeded to do a happy dance in the dressing room, to the cash register and all the way out to my car! #noshame

–Is it just me, or is anyone else tired of the new strain of Captcha? Why am I choosing pictures of street signs or pies? Get that shit off your blog and get a spam blocker if you are that concerned people!! #thanksfromallofus

–Have you ever tried a new eye liner that was a disaster? I think I am going to do a post on products that I have tried and hated after this fiasco. Seriously though, it was a Maybelline liner that smudged instantly and the application was just dreadful. #raccooneyes

–I haven’t had my hair cut since the week before Christmas last year. How did I let this happen? Cutting the grass all spring and summer gave me natural highlights so I guess I didn’t think about how long it had been? I have been looking on Pinterest for two weeks at different colors and I cant decide what I want. What do you guys think I should do? This is what I have been liking. Keep in mind I have light blue eyes and usually pale skin, though right now I am still rocking a slight tan. #hairwoes #indecisive

I love the dark brown with the very nice, complimentary light/copper/chestnut brown highlights. It's not too extreme but it's noticeable:

–I found a new addiction. Sour Punch Bites. I grabbed a bag of these to take to my mom’s a few weeks ago when we were hanging out and playing games. We all were obsessed with them and the bag was gone in a matter of minutes between all the adults and my nieces and nephews. Since then, every time I drive past Walmart I think….I could just stop and grab a bag. It is a sickness people. A sickness. #sugarcoma

They remind me of sour twizlers. Do you remember those? They were my favorite thing ever. They were discontinued like all the other good stuff. Oreo O’s, dunkaroos, you know what I am talking about!!!

Is there something that was discontinued that you want to bring back?

    What eyeliner was it? I usually go for maybelline but I’ve been having issues with all their new eyeliners too! I need to find a new one that isn’t too intense for daily wear at work and that DOESN’T smudge.

    I like the first hair the best, I actually like all of them except the 3rd one, I don’t like the red. I always get nervous when I have to do the captcha that involves picking out pictures, what if I don’t get it right and that means I don’t know what a burrito looks like?!

  • Reply kristen October 21, 2015 at 8:41 am

    bahahaha seriously, KC got on the bank yesterday and was like wtf. I was like errr at least I haven’t being buying clothes? But I guess I bought other stuff. I love when he’s like ‘wtf is the pink tulip?’ hahahaha obviously i haven’t shopped there but you know what i mean. weird clothing boutique names.
    yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy for a size down! you go girl, that is fabulous!
    oh oh oh ok so with the captcha, tell me more. is it when a new window opens to leave a comment? and you click ‘i’m not a robot’? i was having the damndest time with that shit, turns out you don’t need to click ‘i’m not a robot’. then you don’t have to do the captcha. hope that makes sense. if it is something completely else… ignore me 😐

  • Reply kristen October 21, 2015 at 8:41 am

    oh oh and i am pale, no blue eyes obviously, but i feel you. i think you would look fabulous with any of those hair options! i am partial to darker hair for fall / winter.

    Hooray for smaller pants! Boo for captcha. (Seriously, I hate having to pick through food pictures. Captcha has a much different idea of what constitutes a “burger” than I do.)

    OMG that last gif about the bank statement. Too funny! I let my hair go over a year without a haircut so I totally understand getting it cut the other day was amazing!

    Congrats to you and your boutique jeggings victory! Eek, I was planning to do a hair cut this past weekend and never scheduled it. It looks like I’ll have to find a new hair guy/gal and maybe a great place for a mani/pedi while I’m at it.

    You know I’m a dude girl and everything except the down a size in jeans is screaming HEATHER! You are so spot on with all of these confessions especially those ecards, bwahha! Congrats on the down a size, you are doing so well and kicking booty! I love all of the hair styles and cannot believe it’s been a year. I only get mine done once or twice a year when I have it long.

    Ahhh! Dunkaroos were the best! I love the confetti cake ones. Congrats on the new pant size, that’s always the greatest feeling. I mean I haven’t had that in a while but I get it. I did fit back in a pair of jeans I didn’t think I ever would after I did Whole30 only to realize that they had a huge crotch hole in them and I shouldn’t have even kept them around so long. They immediately went in the trash and all the glory of them fitting went with it. On that note I also got asked if I was pregnant last night so I think bigger pants may be in my future #thatwasembarrassing

    Got my Nadine Confessions ON, and now I’m having a good day! I HATE captchas and discontinued goodness!! Why? Years ago Kraft made these wrapped cheese kisses, little nuggets of cheese and my mom and I would sit in the grocery store parking lot unwrapping and eating them…great memories dashed by Kraft cause we would so still do that, lol!!! Yay on your jeggings girl, so proud of you hot mama!!!

    You go, girl, on the smaller pants size! You ar kicking so much ass! I pretty much hate Captcha and have stopped commenting on blogs that use it b/c it’s too hard to do from my phone! Your checking acct dilemma is my package dilemma: Jason keeps getting home before me & seeing all the packages I receive! Sometimes I say I didn’t order it… Haha

    Dude! One time I tried a Physician’s Formula and it practically ruined my life! Black smudge stuck to my contacts all day and I couldn’t see anything…I’m also too blind to take them out so it was a rough day.

    Also…I so miss dunkaroos!

    I haven’t had a haircut since February and I made an appointment for one in three weeks because that’s the only one she had available until December. I snapped that shit up.

    Hooray for going down a pants size!!! Hard work pays off!!!

    Oh I haven’t had the go-down-a-size experience in a long time but I am happy for you. see, I would celebrate that with eating a Godiva salted caramel chocolate bar, which is why my pants sizes keep getting bigger, instead of smaller.

  • Reply Teh Megan October 22, 2015 at 8:54 am

    Dunkaroos yes please.
    I’ve always been a fan of burgendy hair, but NOT a fan of upkeep, so I just stopped dying my hair at all. That said, I really need a trim, uggghhh.

    All the hair. I love them all. I’m getting my hair colored on Thurs and thought I had decided what I want but now I want your picks!

    Lmfao! I kind of went on a shopping binge last month and since it takes so long to ship to Guam all my packages are just arriving now and Joey’s like, where is all this stuff coming from? But at least I can truthfully tell him that I ordered it since last month so no need to worry. Lol. And congrats on going down a size! I’ve been super slacking on my fitness plan so I think I’ve gone up a size.
