On Wednesday We Confess

Hello, ladies! How are y'all doing? I hope everyone on the East coast is warm and safe today. The DC metro area didn't get too much snow, but schools were still closed which made for an easy commute for those that had to go to work. I was actually working from home yesterday due to feeling under the weather so it all ended up working okay for me. Love and thoughts to those that had to work.

Since it's Wednesday, I'm linking up with Melissa for some confessions. Do your soul a favor and confess with us. You know you want to, ladies! :)

I confess. . .

… this story makes me see red. I cannot understand the evil in this world and  how a sweet couple could be duped. The Facebook page set up in their memory makes me tear up every time I check it. Our world is scary and it makes me want to live off the grid. Prayers for the Runion family.

… I laughed longer than I should have when I saw this pin. #menarefrommars

… the Downton Abbey final episode finally arrived at work and y'all, it is SOOO GOOD! I think this past season was one of DA's best and I 100% believe everyone will love the finale. #notaspoileripromise

…  after reading Ashley's post I 100% want to live on a farm. I mean, those pictures, gorgeous!

… our recent cooking endeavors have left me feeling chefy. In the past two weeks we've made homemade pasta, pizza and after last night, we can add homemade tortillas to the list. Easy, delicious and you can freeze the dough for later, woohoo!


… the lack of snow the DC area received yesterday was completely disappointing. I mean, I was still able to work from home, but I was hoping for a lil more drama. Hope all my blizzard friends were warm and safe [looking at you Biana]!!!

… I am more than a lil kickball geeked after watching this video from the championships, last year. If you check it out you'll see a certain Pinkster with two different cameos. #ballercatch #ouchcollison.

… I'm thrilled to still be talking about my wedding on *ASHLEY'S* blog today. Come say hi, won't you!?


Have a great day, friends! < 3

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

LOL at the men and women emojis... some days that could not be more true!

And insanely jealous you're ahead on Downton Abbey! How many episodes are there this season? And when you say final episode.. you mean for the season right not the series?!

Amanda {Kids and Cabernet} said...

Love the man vs woman emojis - too funny! All the food that you have been cooking sounds delish too!

Jessica said...

The story of that sweet couple has just broken my heart into pieces. They attended the church that my parents and I used to go to (the pastor there actually married B and I). And were known around town for being the most selfless people. I just don't understand why that monster did what he did. I mean rob them if you must, take their money, but to kill them? WHY??? Now the Runion's grandchildren will never really know their grandparents, and their children are without their mom and dad. Heartbreaking. I hope he gets life.

On a happier note, all that food you've been making sounds delish!!! I'm coming over:)

Ashley said...

Oh my gosh...I had no idea about the Craigslist car murder. So upsetting. Heading to check out your guest post now!

Mree said...

If you want some snow, I would be more than happy to send you some. While it is pretty, it's tough when you have to shovel numerous times a day. It is so sad about the cragilist murder. Breaks my heart for that couple and their families.

Julia said...

That guac in your tortillas looks amazing! Also that image of men vs. women is hilarious. :)

I saw a snippet about the missing couple on a DVR show, but didn't get more details, that's so sad. I love the women vs. men emojis. Homemade tortillas!? I really need to try those if they're easy!

Rebecca Jo said...

MakeMeUpMia said...

Homemade tortillas?! Yum, good job! I've seen that pic and laughed myself, too funny. True!

Brooke said...

I read that story this morning and it made me so sad. I just can't make any sense of it when stuff like that happens and my heart goes out to the family. What a senseless crime.

We didn't get as much snow as they were anticipating, but it's plenty enough for me haha Love that last picture from your wedding!

Jen said...

The story of that couple just breaks my heart!

Erin LFF said...

That story.... ugh. I'm in tears just thinking of that family and what they must be going through. It's a sad/scary world out there.

Janna Renee said...

Yeah, everyone freaked out about Juno, but it didn't seem to be that bad. Better safe than sorry, and yay for working from home!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...
