Holiday Confessions

I absolutely love the holidays and everyone always posts all of the wonderful and amazing things that are happening. I did the same. Just look in the past couple of posts. But when it comes to multiple family gatherings, there also comes the dreaded "when are you going to have kids?" subject. I've written about this before and I'm thinking it's become a personal mission for my in-laws to make sure I get knocked up in 2015. Why? Because according to one of them, my eggs are drying up as we speak (this seriously happened). I'm going to be 27 going on 60 apparently. Watch out guys, I'll be hitting menopause and breaking my hip shortly if I go down the stairs too fast. Unfortunately confession sessions have become nonexistent since one of my fav bloggers is taking a break or permanent one....however I need to get this shit off my chest. Who's with me? Feel free to steal this badge for your holiday confessions and if you want link back :).


* I confess that I feel like it would be less work to just give up and fake a pregnancy so my in-laws can lay off. This would also give me an excuse as to why I most likely gained 20lbs in wine and Christmas cookies and act like a raging bitch all the time. See? Killed three birds with one stone. But really...


* I confess that if it's been tough ignoring my now full wine rack and junk food (thanks a lot NYE party) and I need to amp up my workouts and schedule my meals asap for the next month. There's absolutely no room for carbs.


* I confess that I cried a little taking down our Christmas tree. It's so depressing...now it's just really cold out and the lack of sparkly ornaments and hanging Christmas cards is just tragic.


* I confess that I may or may not have thrown down every F-bomb word combination to Samsung customer service for their faulty SD card which ended up deleting hundreds of photos I've taken since I bought my new phone through Christmas. Luckily I post to social media too much and have this blog otherwise I would have drawn blood. And no customer service person, I did NOT back up my photos elsewhere otherwise we wouldn't be having this heated conversation.


* I confess that I freaked the fuck out when Josh told me that my in-laws invited other people to our NYE party making it over 20+ people. Our NYE party was supposed to be immediate fam only and very low key....yeah NOPE. It turned out fine and was a great time, but when I got home from work that afternoon (thank the lord I got to leave the office early) I cracked open a bottle of wine and started to prep for the first, big party at the house that we were totally unprepared for. I was therefore trashed by 4:30p.m., baking cookies for the party while dancing to Bruno Mars in the kitchen.


* I confess that I just might start writing my book this year...but that would also mean giving zero fucks and having half of my family ostracizing me for life...okay yes this will happen.


* I confess that when the news broke that Sir Paul McCartney and Kanye West collaborated on a song....I got violently ill. Then to make matters worse, Kanye fans called Paul McCartney....A MUSIC LEGEND mind you...an "up-and-coming artist." and thanked Kanye for discovering him. Josh and I laughed ourselves to tears. How can some people breathe the same air as others? You can read the tweets here.


Bring it on 2015, I'm SO ready for you....and so is my non-existent child. But first....coffee...


 Let it out everyone! What do you have to confess from the holidays?!

  1. I swear to god, the when are you having kids or the assumption that we even want them, is killing me. All I want is for our families to realize I can't even handle our dogs. I mean for real.

  4. i hate it when other people interfere with your life. it's like, STFU and mind yo' bidness!!! and it never ends there. if you do have a kid, it's always "when are you having another". i've been getting that pressure for SIX YEARS and so i just say: well, how about YOU have one since you want one so bad? no? then STFU.

  7. I freakin love these confessions. I went to my gyn last year and she basically told me that I need to start having kids. I pointed out that I wasn't married and she saw no issue whatsoever. She said, "you should really start trying because when you do finally want kids you may not be able to have them." that will be the last time I see her. I'm a little older than you...31 so I'm closer to that scary time for having kids but you are still way young...you'll be just fine!

  8. my sister gets asked when she is going to have a baby all the time. She says never. I think asking is rude and tacky. I'd probably respond with, we practice 3-4 times a day not sure why it hasn't happened. But I'm just rude and tacky too :) http://making-melissa.blogspot.com has picked up the Confessions. I have a reason to post on Wednesday's again.

  9. UGH the "when are you going to have kids" question...the worst! And we've been married for 8 years, still no kids, so we've gotten that a lot. Why exactly do people feel like that's any of their business? Family or not, that's between me and the husband, thankyouverymuch. I agree, after taking Christmas decorations down it's like what's the point of cold weather, really??

  15. Melissa is hosting confessions now! Thank God because I felt so lost without the linkup. (http://making-melissa.blogspot.com/2015/01/humpday-confessions-man-candy-reveal.html)

    For the first time ever, my stepmom said something about having grand BABIES AND granddogs for Christmas and I just looked at her, then looked at my Dad, looked back at her, finally looked back and him and nodded my head towards her and walked away. That's my sign for, you better talk to your wife because if I have to, she's not going to like it. It's good that my dad gets me. lol.

  19. Omg... I love you!!! I get teary about taking my stuff down too. I did it yesterday and when I came down this morning my heart sank when there was no pretty tree to turn on and light up my family room. I hear you on the prying relatives, everyone in my world wants to know when I am going to find a nice man now that I've been divorced for awhile... ugh. Pre-party drinking is the hostesses best kept secret, did it my whole married life!!

  20. My apartment looks so depressing without all the Christmas stuff so today I went and bought a shit ton of Valentine's Day things just to make myself less sad and my apartment a little more festive...

    Also, ugh I cannot stand Kanye when I saw the Colab I was like, "Sir, Paul what are you doing?"

  21. Paul and Kanye..Hell is freezing over, dinosaurs are coming back, and I'm getting married. All of which is impossible. All of which will happen because they're working together. <3

  22. "So, is he the one?!" If I hear this question one more time about my boyfriend of two years, I'm killing someone. So I get the baby questions angst (although I can imagine it gets so much more off-outting when their essentiall asking abou your sex life and body).

    Also, my holiday confession: I haven't taken down my [fake] tree yet.
