Midweek Confessions!

I'm linking up again!  If you don't do midweek confessions, you should give it a try.  It's strangely freeing!

-I love the Duggars.  I watch 19 Kids and Counting every week.  I know it's sort of a controversial topic for some, but I feel like it's not my place to judge whether or not someone should have 19 kids.  I feel like that is between them and God and who am I to say otherwise.  They really inspire me in many ways.  Don't get me wrong I would never ever ever have 19 kids, but the fact that they have 19 respectful, Christian, well spoken, obedient, caring, and musically talented children is something worth noticing.  Sometimes when I start showing anger toward my kids, I stop and think about Michelle Duggar.  She truly must have the patience of a saint.  If she can stay calm in the midst of 19 crazy kids than I can surely keep my anger in check with only 3.  I may not agree with everything they do (modesty bathing suits), but I can easily see that they love God and everything they do is to bring Him glory, and I truly respect that.

-It's finally Spring Break here.  I was seriously down in the dumps all last week because it seemed like every other state in the United States was on spring break but us.   The confession is that I have absolutely no plans to accomplish anything this week.  Last week Brent asked me what my goals were for Spring Break and I just shrugged my shoulders.  Maybe I just want to do nothing!! 

-I really want to get a tattoo on my foot, but I might be too chicken.  Brent is planning on getting a tattoo when he turns 30.  He has always wanted one.  I never really even gave it too much thought before this year.  Maybe I am feeling too much like a frumpy old mom and need to do something daring and exciting.  I have serious doubts that I will go through with it, but you never know.

-When our kitchen hand soap started running low, I just added water to it.  I hate how there is clearly still soap left in the bottle, but it won't come up through the tube.  I don't like waste!

-It took me 2 hours to create my first blog button.  I was about to pull my hair out because I couldn't get the size right and no matter what I tried it wouldn't fit.  Then two hours in the light bulb went off!  The button needed to be a square!! duhh!  I know this might be child's play for most of you, but I am pretty darn proud of my first button.  Check it out to your right->  If only I could have removed the double chin! :) 


  1. Awe!! I <3 your blog!! The colors are great & I've already "connected" with you on your weird how it seems we can have so much in common - and then meet in blogland.

    I saw your comment on another site and it lead me to your blog...

    I also cannot wait for the next season of Walking Dead!!...just one more thing we have in common!! LOL

    1. I know what you mean. I love getting to know people I might never had a chance to if it weren't for the blogging world!

  2. I love that tattoo! I have two on the inside of my right ankle--a small Jesus fish and the word 'faith' in Thai. It honestly did NOT hurt that bad and I love that they are easily covered up if need be. I say go for it!!


Love to hear your thoughts!!
