Confessions – October

If you’re new around here, confessions is a time for us to all unburden ourselves of the silliness we’re feeling at the moment. I share dumb things, then you share dumb things, and we all have a better day because of it.
Let’s get started!
If you look closely, you’ll see an excessive amount of mint, rosemary, and parsley in my photos. Why? Because most photos need pops of green and those three things grow in my garden and therefore, they’re free ninety-nine.
The mint and parsley are seasonal, so in the winter you’ll find tons of rosemary in photos for recipes that have nothing to do with rosemary. What in the world does rosemary have to do with cranberry sauce??? NOTHING.
That holly is from a bush that I cannot kill.
Why is there mint with applesauce? Mint and apples would be GROSS together! I had a bunch of fresh tarragon from the garden in these photos for Instant Pot Caramelized Onions but I had to crop them out because they looked like leafy green pubes.
Here’s a game we can play. I want you to email me or DM me on Instagram anytime you see random garnish in a photo that has nothing to do with the recipe. Please?
Last month we got a call from Jack’s school saying he had been caught with contraband at lunch…
It was Lactaid. 🙂
I take full ownership of that as I’m the one who put it in his backpack and kept reminding him to take it on Wednesdays (the day he gets to buy hot lunch and it’s pizza). It was all me. I 100% didn’t even think about having an authorization form at school. My bad.
Our pediatrician quickly filled out a form for him and I left a box in the office that he can take whenever he needs it. And I am still laughing so hard about my kid getting busted at school for taking something that makes it so he doesn’t fart after having a slice a pizza.
90% of my wardrobe follows the same pattern: skinny jeans + some sort of free t-shirt that I got from a conference, church, or one of the brands I’ve worked with.
I feel like I should look into Stitchfix or something. HA!
My kids are either whispering or screaming. It’s either “please speak up, I can’t hear you” or “please dear God can you take it down 30 notches”.
PICK A MIDDLE LANE and talk like a normal person.
I LOVE our library for pretty much everything. But when I download free ebooks to my Kindle I don’t always finish them before the due date.
I um, found out that if you turn the wi-fi on the Kindle off, they can’t automatically return the book.
There are parts of the floor in my house that I’m sure my kids have never once walked on…until I am sweeping and then suddenly they need to be RIGHT THERE.
Of all the things I thought I would be when I grew up, a grumpy harpy shrew who yells “get out of my dirt pile”, never once crossed my mind.
When we lived in Los Angeles, I worked for a corporation that introduced me to a very fancy lifestyle. All the expensive things we did in California were thanks to this company.
No joke, the holiday party was at the Beverly Hill’s Four Seasons. To keep ourselves humble, we would take Troy’s 2003 Ford Ranger (complete with canopy) to the party and we would valet park it (comped by the company).
I still laugh thinking about that beat-up work truck parked near vehicles that cost twice our yearly income.
Ok, friends, your turn! What do you need to confess?
