My girl Brittany over at Blissful Britt does a weekly-ish post called Confessions, in which she “confesses” (shocker) things going on in her life. I always look forward to reading those posts and thought it would be fun to copy her. Ya I said it… copy her. They say imitation is the best form of flattery 🙂 So here they are, my confessions…

1. My friend Pam always drives us to our ice cream dates (about 30 minutes away) because I work close by and hate making the drive twice in one day. I am super grateful she does this and so I like to “pay her back” in the form of treats. I bought a Dark Chocolate Speculoos Cookie Spread bar from Trader Joe’s for her last week, but I ate it before our next ice cream date. It was really good. I WILL buy (and not eat) another one for her 🙂

2. I have a horrible vice. Sugar Free coffee creamers. Specifically the Coffee-mate brand. I know, I know. No lecture needed. I’ve tried to quit cold turkey, but that didn’t last long. So I’m trying half creamer half almond milk to help the transition.

Coffee-mate Creamer3. To offset my enormous intake of teeth staining coffee, I’m still going strong using my Arm & Hammer Advance White toothpaste and Spinbrush. I had a dentist appointment last week and you know your teeth are white when the dentist tells you they are!

Arm&Hammer Advance Whte4. I randomly take pregnancy tests. I still haven’t gotten Aunt Flow yet, but the way I see it, you never know when we could catch it in time and not get my period because I’m pregnant. Is it far fetched? Sure. But it doesn’t hurt to hope 🙂

Pregnancy Test5. I couldn’t help but laugh at Riley the other day. Is that mean? Maybe. But come on… look at that cone.

6. I can’t master the running selfie. This is the best I’ve got. I’m running on the treadmill and trying to take a picture of myself in the mirror on the wall. I guess I shouldn’t be too bummed, I mean, who really needs to take a running selfie?

7. Todd and I finally finished Breaking Bad- ya, I know, a little late- and we weren’t that impressed with the finale. Maybe it was just hyped up so much? It was supposed to be the best finale EVER and neither of us could understand why.

Do YOU have any confessions?

  1. You know I love this post!! Confessions are so fun, I have been known to buy treats for other people and eat them instead. WHOOPS. HAHA. I haven’t mastered the running selfie either. My confession: last night to prepare for my long run today I ate 4 NEW Trader Joe’s pumpkin Joe-Joe’s with coconut ice cream and some cashew butter. My real confession: I didn’t run today. HAHA. I plan to run tomorrow instead so…it was like…PRE PRE PRE carb loading? Can never be too cautious right? Plus it was my treat for the week!!

    • OMG I LOVE THE PUMPKIN JOE-JOES! I’ll be posting about them. SO GOOD. Topping them with cashew butter sounds amazing… you and pairings, so brilliant! At least your one treat a week was totally worth it. And like you said… you can never be too prepared for the long run. Now you KNOW your glycogen stores will be full 😉

  2. Haha oh, poor Riley lol 🙂 I’ve actually never attempted a running selfie. Hmmm a confession … if there’s a bag of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups minatures in my reach they’ll all be nearly gone in 24 hours haha!!! I know, I know I’m such a junkie ha! 🙂

  3. I love the speculous bars! Yum!! Have you tried the chocolate/speculous spread! It is delicious!
    I ate a cookie today when I am “out” treats!
    I ran my long run faster than I should have yesterday but it felt good! 🙂

    • I haven’t tried the chocolate speculoos combo.. that’s almost TOO dangerous! Glad you treadted yourself to a cookie and even more glad you had an awesome long run… speedy pants!

  4. What a fun idea for a post! I love reading the confessions.
    Truth – I once ate a treat I bought for a friend too! The candy was just sitting around my room … and needless to say it called my name before I got to see my friend. Glad I’m not alone!

  5. Ohhh my gosh, the picture of Riley!! Eeek!! Just the cutest most pitiful picture in the world!! SO CUTE!! Poor baby! Seriously made me laugh, though! What a precious baby! I just wanna give a big kiss!! Hehe!! Also, haha, I’m not good with the running selfie either! Such cool stuff here in your post!! XOXO! Happy Monday!!

  6. Ha, Confessions are the best! I am the only person in my family who likes the flavor of that toothpaste. It’s the best! I should buy the spinbrush you show. Anything for whiter teeth.

    I consider myself lucky that our Trader Joes in a 30 minute drive for me. So I only go once a month. If it was closer I would be tempted to buy stuff like those chocolate bars. That looks amazing!!

    • I’m right there with you on the white teeth. Especially if it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg!

      My Trader Joe’s is also about 30 min away, BUT I work really close to it, soooo, I end up popping in way too much, haha. I’ll have to stick with a once a month trip like you 🙂 It would certainly help our grocery budget!
