We’re going about our usual “Thursday Thoughts” a little differently today. I’m going to share some confessions of mine – maybe some things I wouldn’t normally share on a regular basis or things that I just need to get off my chest. I’m linking up to Amanda’s Thinking Out Loud post today too. If you want to read a random assortment of other thoughts, make sure you check out the link-up!
I still feel like we’re on an extended vacation. As time goes on, it’s feeling less like a vacation and more of a “I just want to go home now” feeling. Except there’s just a tiny problem – technically we don’t currently have a home. Crossing our fingers we will officially close next week!
Kind of linking back to my first confession, it’s weird thinking about someone living in our (old) home in Utah. Because when I think of my home, I think of my Utah home. Except, it’s not our home anymore and there’s people living there. Weird.
My hair length is driving me CRA to the ZY lately. I haven’t cut it since November because I’m trying to grow it out. It’s in a weird in-between stage right now that tempts me to just chop it again. But, I’m refusing. I want it LONG! Not to mention it’s still in an a-line shape because that’s how it was shaped when it was shorter. I keep going back and forth as to whether I should get it trimmed and level it out, or just keep letting it go for awhile longer. Good thing it’s been up in a messy bun most of the time these days so I’m not reminded of it too much.
OK, so I totally get sponsored posts. I mean, you’ve seen ‘em around here from time to time. It means a lot to me that you guys are willing to read and support this little blog of mine. I really try to space them out and throw in plenty of posts from just me with no sponsorship. So anyways, my confession: it really drives me bonkers when I start to see blogs that I used to really enjoy constantly filled with sponsored posts – like, ALL the time, almost every day. I’m about to say buh-bye to a few of ‘em…
I was SUPER nervous most of yesterday morning. My interview was in the afternoon, so of course I spent most of the morning with major butterflies in my stomach. I’m pretty sure I rocked the confidence thing and did well though. More on the whole thing tomorrow!
I really miss my Utah friends. Yes, I’m happy to be back in Arizona with family, but that doesn’t take away from missing my Utah peeps. They became my family there, so leaving them has been challenging. Now that things have settled down a little bit, it’s been hitting me more lately. Even though I grew up here in Arizona, most of my high school friends have moved to a different state, so I feel like I’m starting all over in the friend department. *sigh*
My Utah MOPS gals – miss them dearly!
I’m already realizing that holidays are going to be interesting now that we’re here in AZ. With three families to bounce around to, it can get kinda crazy. With Easter a couple weeks ago and then Mother’s Day this coming weekend, I’ve been finding myself feeling overwhelmed because I want everyone to be happy yet going from house-to-house-to-house gets to be a little too much. Well, it can’t happen for much longer because I want to enjoy holidays and not feel anxious every time one comes along. At the same time, I want to be fair, you know? We’ll have to figure out some sort of system for the future.
I wish I had all the time in the world to comment on all of y’all’s blogs, but it just can’t happen. There’s SO many great blogs I’ve been seeing pop up lately, and I want you to know how great I think you and your blog are … but, I also have a life that is beyond the computer screen. So, just remember that even though I may not be commenting, I do still try to read! Keep up the great work!
I’ve never been one to love long nails. They get dirt under them and get in the way. But my nails have recently become pretty long, and I’m suddenly kind of loving them! My mom gifted me beautiful and strong nails, so maybe I should start using that to my advantage and keeping them a little on the longer side.
Your turn! What are some of YOUR confessions lately?
