On Wednesdays We Confess Vol 40

Cheers to it being Wednesday and only five days till Christmas! I honestly feel like December has flown by and has been a little bit of a blur. I have not had much down time this month. Of course that is to be expected with the holidays being here. As much as I love the holidays, it’s always nice when they are over (though I will miss all the pretty decorations). Β With that being said here are my confessions for this week.

I confess that Friday-Sunday last week I did nothing but run around like a nut getting last minute Christmas things done.

I confess that the weekend still has me exhausted. I went to bed before 9 last night. I’m still exhausted.

I confess that I went to Ulta and got my eye brows done. The girl who did my brows did an amazing job.

I confess that I went to Ulta twice last week and spent way too much money. Those darn 20% off coupons they send out for being a platinum member are going to get me in trouble. I still have two to use.

I confess that I cooked my first ham last week. Yep I’ve never cooked a ham before. I glazed it with honey and cinnamon and it came out so good.

I confess that I only have to purchase a few gift cards for Christmas and then I am done with my shopping. Thank God!

I confess that I wanted to have more holiday content on the blog but time did not permit. I will have my stuff planned way more ahead of time next year.

I confess that I have become obsessed with Benefit’s ka-Brow Cream Eyebrow Gel. It is so easy to apply and blends out beautifully on the brows.

I confess that I have been a little with drawn lately when it comes to being social. I’m okay with that though.

I confess that I can’t believe my sweet boudin (my dog) is going to be six tomorrow. He’s still a puppy at heart.

I confess that I am evaluating different investments I want to make for the blog in the future. A reader survey will be coming soon!

Those are my confessions for this week. I hope all of you are having a wonderful week. If you have any good confessions, let me know in the comments below.

      Girl I am so jealous that you finished your shopping early! Next year I will def be planning more ahead of time as far as not buying last minute gifts. I highly recommend getting your brows done at Ulta! I have my next appointment already booked for next month.

  2. Girl, I have been pathetically exhausted from the weekend too. We spend the weekend with my best friends and their significant others and while it was amazing, I didn’t sleep much. I went to bed at 9 on Monday night and 9:15 last night. I finally feel a little more like myself.

      Kristin the holidays are such a fun time but so draining. I am still catching up on sleep. Anytime I can go to bed early, I am all for it.

  4. Treat yourself! I bought some things for myself during my holiday shopping as well. I am thinking about blog investments as well. Hopefully the new year brings growth for both of us!

      Marette I did treat myself….maybe a little too much. I still have all my Christmas presents bought for everyone, so I guess it’s okay. πŸ™‚ I hope that next year brings growth for us both!! I can’t wait to see what we have in store.

    We had the same issue at my job with too much content for the time allotted. I ended up scheduling 2-3 Christmas videos per day in order to make everything fit.

      Katie I am happy to say that work has calmed down a bit. It’s so stressful when there are so many things to get done when you don’t have a large time frame to complete it.

  6. Love your confessions! I confess that I try to be in bed no later than 9pm every night or I am a grouch the next day! [Waking up before 6am during the week is exhausting!]

  8. Happy Birthday to your Pup! I completely understand about being amazed that your dog is turning six. My Callie girl is seven, but it seems like just yesterday that she was just a tiny puppy. Where does the time go?!
    Hope you get to do something fun to celebrate!

      Thank You Cait!! It really does feel like I just got him yesterday. I love that little guy. We celebrated with giving them a little bit extra treats. He had a good birthday celebration. πŸ™‚

    I went to Ulta too. I bought new eyeliner and a back up of a new favorite color of Maybelline Lipstick. They change the colors so often that I wanted a 2nd one.
