We're pretty much living in a snow globe in West Michigan right now - it has snowed almost all week long! It's given me a chance to play around with my new camera when taking Brady out, although I will admit that like 95% of the pictures so far are no bueno. Except for that one above, progress! I'm practicing on manual mode mostly and hopefully soon I'll be able to take a decent picture on the third fifteenth try. Also need to work on Brady not being terrified of the camera. I'm pretty sure it's the moving lens that he doesn't like - he either growls at it or refuses to look at me, haha. We're all a work in progress over here!
On to my monthly 'fess sesh...
I confess that I'm seriously considering buying the Justin Bieber CD. I don't even know who I am anymore, but I am ridiculously obsessed with his new songs, specifically Sorry. Sorry I'm not sorry (get it).
I confess that this weekend I will be repainting our guest bedroom for the THIRD time. Whoops. Something about this room is so hard for me, I think it's the fact that the headboard and dresser we have in there are black and I don't know how to decorate with black. But I'm determined to get things in order in that room, so I'm painting it Sherwin Williams Sea Salt (inspo pic) and I found a super cheap upholstered nail trim headboard on Wayfair that I'm going to order and then paint the dresser white. Hopefully third times the charm!
I confess that I can't decide if I like this sweater/cape or not - but I ordered it anyway. I mean it is on sale and free returns if it's ugly, right?
I confess that I don't understand blog newsletters. I get that it's a way to get more content out to your readers, but why don't you just put that all on your blog? All the Pinterest blogging tutorials say that I should have one and I'm just confused as to why! I'd love to hear what you think about them if you have one yourself.
I confess that I ordered these (finally) in cream, but they look pink in real life. The box says cream and they don't even make them in pink, so I have no idea what is going on! I can't decide if I'm going to keep them or not because they look straight up baby pink to me.
I confess - and this is my big rant for the day - that if one more person says something to me about once the baby is here that I will realize that Brady is really 'just a pet', I am going to p-u-n-c-h them. I have had numerous people say this to me and it seriously makes my blood boil. I get that the love that you have for your child is different than the love for your dog, but why in the world would having a baby make me love Brady any less?? Sure, his hair is everywhere and he barks whenever he sees his favorite Fed-Ex guy (haha) and he drags all of our nice blankets around, but this is his house too and he is more than 'just our dog'. He was here first and while I know he's going to get less attention than he does now, he will NOT be loved any less. And like what am I supposed to say to people when they say this? I try to be polite, but it's hard. Anyone else deal with this? I'm sure we could all write crazy posts on things you shouldn't say to women when they're pregnant!
Aaand end rant. I hate to leave on such a negative note, so I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We'll be doing (you guessed it) more housework and I'm hoping to get out and see The Reverent finally. As always, make sure to follow along on Instagram! :) See you back here on Monday!
