Confessionally Yours

by Sarah on February 24, 2013 · 7 comments

Being raised Episcopalian, my idea of a confessional falls a lot more in line with The Real World: New Orleans, rather than a sliding sceen and ‘Hail Marys.’

Consider these confessions less about my sins, and more about making sure my truth* gets told.

*truth [noun]: random thoughts I feel the need to share with you


I generally wake up almost 90 minutes before I leave for work. 30 minutes is spent getting dressed.

60 minutes is spent making breakfast.

 Despite everyone claiming it to be the best T-shirt ever made, this trip to the gym with my more-than-blend Brittany was the first time I ever wore my Blend T-Shirt.When I told my second grade students I was going to Kentucky for the weekend, they misinterpreted what I said as Ken-Tokyo. It was so darn cute, I didn’t correct them. Even when they asked if I would be eating lots of Chinese food. [And the downfall of the American educational system continues…]

Most of my photos are taken on my stove.

And not because I’m there cooking.

the lighting's just better...

Even this one of my Toasted Walnut Romesco  was the result of laying a wooden cutting board across the burners

A couple of weeks ago, I completed a survey where I claimed that when not listening to Cosmo Radio on Sirius XM in my car, I listened exclusively to Taylor Swift’s Red. What I really meant was I listen to Track 5, “All to Well,” and get very emo, then I listen to Track 11, “Holy Ground,” and rock out a little bit or a lot a bit. And then I repeat.

I once listened to 'Holy Ground' 10-15 times in a row.

 Although I don’t wish to be single, I do wish to eat like I’m single for as long as I possibly can.

My roommate and I were supposed to host our book club on Wednesday night. When all but one person canceled, we decided that Book Club was going to become Bachelor Club instead. Best. Decision. Ever.

I kind of forgot to pick a winner for my Love Grown Foods Hot Oats giveaway.


Better late than never?

You know, I have been thinking about putting a disclaimer to my Sunday Confessions. Can I steal yours? Or I have thought about stealing another blogger’s confession post called Totally Truthful Thursdays – which doesn’t need one. Then I thought after I come up with a new name, I can start the whole linky thing, but then I was like “nah, that’s not me or my blog’. Clearly, I have too much time on my hands to think about this.

1. The blend shirt – ahhh! It’s my favorite tee shirt ever. That is a true confession.
2. I’m still almost exclusively listening to Red in my Car. I love the duets right now.

Your first time wearing the shirt EVER?! How is that even possible? I wear it as often as I can which usually means the day after I do the laundry. 😉

Hahaha you crack me up. I take a lot of my food pictures over the stove too! the lighting really is better!

I’m not going to lie…I love my husband more than anything, BUT, those days/nights when he’s gone and I get to eat whatever crazy concoction I want, are tons of fun.

I’m embarrassed I don’t know those T.Swift songs. Looks like I need to update my ipod! Oh wait, I don’t have one. 😉

Blend shirt = awesomeness

I miss you so much!! Come back to Ken-Tokyo??


Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli March 12, 2013 at 2:18 pm

That shirt IS the best shirt ever! You’ve CLEARLY been missing out! How can you deny the feeling of that oh so soft fabric against your skin?!

Kentokyo…hahaha! Omg, kids can be the cutest! …not that they’ve necessarily won me over to the dark side yet though…I still like the fact that I can give them BACK! Lol

Hmm, I may have to disown you after the whole TS thing…unless of course you make it up to me in custom Nutty Butter flavors! 😉
