These are My Confessions

Just when I thought I said all I could say….

Don’t even pretend that you weren’t singing Usher!

— Maybe I have had a bag packed in my car every day so far this week full of clothes, boots, a scarf, and gloves in case I get stuck somewhere because of this crazy Alabama weather. With an empty book bag to deposit my purse and work lap top in if I had to walk for a long distance. And when I say maybe I mean I do.

— I don’t really care about Valentine’s Day. Mainly because I think it is a stupid holiday. Shouldn’t you show your significant other love throughout the year and purchase them random little surprises because you thought about them instead of doing it because you are supposed to? Because a holiday reminded you to? Lame sauce.

–I do like hearts and pink glittery things, so not all of Valentine’s Day is lame sauce. You better believe I hit the clearances aisles at Target and purchase the pink towels with hearts all over them and the glittery xoxo.

–I haven’t painted my finger nails in almost two months. They started to chip and peel really, really bad after having them painted constantly for three weeks. It freaked me out and took until now to stop looking a mess. I am going to paint them this weekend and hope the layers of my nails don’t peel again! What do all of you use to protect your nails who have them painted constantly?! Clearly what I am using doesn’t work!

–I have my toe nails painted. The same paint I put on around Thanksgiving. There are 4 toes left with color. Maybe I should fix that? I say what’s the point until the flip flops get broken out. My winter work shoes just tear my toe nails up.

–I have gotten in EVERY T25 work out last week and this week so far! I have also stayed on track with my meal plan this week. Score!

–I hate lower focus day. Holy squats and lunges my legs shake for awhile after my work out.

–I have a ridiculous attachment to things that are sentimental to me. Chris bought me an iPad2 for my birthday the year it came out. It was my first tablet and I have loved it ever since. Chris has an iPad 4 but his work just purchased him an iPad Air. Chris offered me his iPad4. Sweet! However, now I don’t need the iPad 2 and I know I should sell it and put that money towards something else. But I kind of sort of have a really hard time letting go. Chris bought it for me for my  birthday so it is really special to me.

Note to Chris: don’t buy me shit that is upgradable for my birthday in the future…I will have a really hard time letting go when it is time to upgrade!

–I cant believe I am going to say this…but I am kind of ready for warmer weather. What the what?!?! That’s right. Me. Nadine. Lover of cold weather and winter. I am ready for some flip flops and dresses and no more threat of ice paralyzing my beloved little southern city. I am sure I will insert my foot in my mouth when it is April 2 and 85 degrees with 1546% humidity and I am sweating my ass off. You can laugh at me then.

It’s Wednesday. I am wearing pink.

On Wednesdays we wear pink and link up with Kathy for Wednesday Confessions and Liz for the Hump Day Blog Hop!

    It’s going to be in the 70s here this weekend so maybe you will get a little break, too. I personally still love it and get mad when I can’t wear my boots! My toes have been a mess for about the same length of time. I rarely ever go get pedicures but a friend wanted me to do so this weekend. She didn’t understand why I declined because no one will see them for at least another month, so it’s a waste of money. I’m glad you understand that, though!

    well, today was -21 when i was driving to work so i’m with you on protesting against mother nature for warmer weather.

    Well you’ll get your warmer weather again this weekend and next week. 60s is what I saw. =( And I’m that way about cards. I feel like I should always keep them. However, I’ve recently started keeping them for one year and then letting them go. Weird, maybe. Ha!

    Way to go with your workouts! Keep it up. I HATE leg days too.

    Leg day can suck it. I want to say I agree with you about the whole “celebrate love everyday” thing but if that’s the case, then shouldn’t Valentine’s Day be one of those days too? Celebrating Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean I don’t believe in doing it throughout the year, it’s just another reason to do it (again). I just like celebrating whatever though so I’m excited for it! Plus it’s my birthday so I’m definitely looking forward to that 🙂

    I’m wearing pink too, but not by design.

    I don’t mind winter but this winter has been a total ahole.

    I use orly bonder as a base coat, Essie or OPI polish, and top with Essie no chip top coat. Prep your nails well before painting – buff them, file them, deal with your cuticles. That reminds me I want to do a do your nails at home post soon.

    My nails are also currently awful. I need to paint them something fierce. They started chipping & my nails started peeling so then I bit my nails down to next to nothing & the only cure is a fresh coat of paint…but I think that nails this short look awkward/ugly with bright/dark colors.

  • Reply Joey February 12, 2014 at 5:37 pm

    Base coat! I use the sally hansen hard as nails one–and my nails are CONSTANTLY painted. Sometimes I get minimal chipping–but if you “buff” your nails (one of those cube thingys) it really helps. There are also nail treatment things you can find at sally’s (I can’t remember the names–but the sales clerk should be able to help you) that I know a lot of other mani bloggers use to help with peeling! And GOOD FOR YOU for being so prepared in this weather! I’m in NC and we are getting “pounded” right now (I say that loosely because all the Northerners are probably laughing at us right now. Luckily I work from home and the hubs works in walking distance–but I know the traffic can get bonkers in this kind of weather! Good luck!

    New to your blog and SHUT UP! I went to Target looking for cute VDay decor and ours totally didn’t have the X and O! And I, too love some snowy weather, but it’s just gone on too long this year. Can we kick drunk mother nature out of the bar now?

  • Reply Kelli February 12, 2014 at 9:34 pm

    Ahhh a cold lover wishing for summer, I sense progress for us lovers of warm!

  • Reply Eva Marie Taylor February 12, 2014 at 10:38 pm

    I am the biggest hoarder of sentimental things. My husband (also a Chris) is the complete opposite. When we moved out of our last house, I had to give him permission to throw out anything that was still in boxes in our garage from when we moved in to that house 5 years earlier if he thought I didn’t need them. I knew if I opened the boxes myself that I would’ve wanted to keep everything, even though I didn’t even remember it was even there anymore! I am not huge on Vday either. I even sell cards in my Etsy shop and totally missed out on the Vday holiday, but don’t really care because you should send those kind of cards all year!

    If it weren’t for hearts and pink sparkly things, Valentine’s Day would be a TOTAL fail!
    I haven’t painted my nails in so long… I think this weekend I’m gonna give myself a gel manicure so that I can longer between paint jobs… hate waiting for that shit to dry!

  • Reply Miranda February 13, 2014 at 2:14 am

    Valentine’s Day isn’t my fave either…bust sparkly things are always a pro! The pink XO is adorable, I would totally keep it out all year long! Ha ha.
