Adding a Little Usher to the Week {These are my CONFESSIONS}


I confess. . .

|| there are no words to describe the idiocy of this guy. I can only hope selfless with high jackers doesn't become a trend. What is this world coming to and why are people so ridiculous?

|| I went a lil balls to the wall in my sports conditioning class on Tuesday and shhhhheewwwweee my shins are NOT happy with me today.

|| it may sound braggy but I was thrilled with my gym outfit Tuesday. I had forgotten how slimming my Spartan shirt fit and having it paired with one of my favorite leggings made me feel fierce. Might have been why I was so aggressive in class!

|| the baby bug grabbed me for a hot second yesterday when my dear friend shared a video of her son with me. He is just the cutest lil thing and his sweet lil voice melted my heart. I'm back on the no kid right now train, but one day look forward to having my own lil minion :)!

|| while I'm super stoked spring weather is here the ahem -- body maintenance -- has me all kinds of wah. The one good thing about the winter is sweat pants and long leggings at the gym. #bootomorefrequentshaving

|| I am both nervous excited and nervous dreading our going away party this weekend. I've kind of thrown it together at the last minute when our other plans didn't pan out. It will be much more informal that originally thought and I'm so grateful my parent's are allowing us to use their home. I just hope the food, drinks and desserts turn out how they are pictured in my mind. I know what matters is just enjoying friends, but we all know how important it is to be a good host. #prayersforniceweatherplease

|| whipped cream spoons have been my dessert of choice this week. Not fancy and not classy, but oh so delicious.


|| the notification issues on Instagram has this girl all 'what is going on'? I just joined and it seems like things are changing but I don't know what is changing. I'm just gonna keep liking pictures and commenting as normal, please don't be offending if something changed on my end [follow me here].

|| I may have recycled my Easter top to work this week. There was a big meeting with a vendor and I didn't feel like figuring out another fancy outfit. #addedthepearlsforextrabling #dontjudge #pictureatstoplight

What do you confess today?

I have no clue what is happening with instagram and so glad to not be the only one. From my understanding the feed is suppose to show who you interact with the most first and then everyone else instead of in order by when posted......... So I am just liking and commenting away. lol

I hope your party turns out amazing and you have a wonderful time.

Elle Sees said...

instgram hasn't changed anything yet. it's one of those things where people heard one thing and jumped on the bandwagon without any proof. they'll make changes but not yet. i didn't turn on anyone's notifications.

the whipped cream spoon sounds like a perfect lil treat!

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

Whipped cream spoons?! Yes please! Sign me up! I used to do that with peanut butter lol! And Instagram... so dumb. I wouldn't worry about the changes. <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

kerri @ cheshire kat said...

The whole Instagram thing is so freaking annoying! It has people all up in arms. Whatevs! I love when you have a good workout outfit on and you feel like a bad a$$. Don't stress about the party just enjoy it!

Jenn said...

ok im so glad i'm not the only one who is all "whats happening with instagram?" i don't quite understand it, but i'm also a bad blogger because i don't really use social media quite like i should? haha if you figure it out, help clue me in please! haha

Is it bad that I kind of want to go grab a whip cream spoon right now? Prayers for nice weather and a wonderful going away party this weekend!

Rebecca Jo said...

I'm the same way about Instagram - just continuing like its nothing - I'm good at ignoring changes :) haha

You look BAD ASS in that outfit. Slim & tough all in one!

Carly Blogs Here said...

Ahhh I can't even buy whipped cream because I would literally eat the entire container at once-- it's such a problem! And now I'm craving some! Loving your gym outfit & you should totally feel fierce, you look amazing!

Jen said...

You look awesome my friend!!! Fit and healthy! :) The best combination.

Gina Salberg said...

I love a good whip cream spoon! A few weeks ago I started tossing blue berries into some whip cream and that is SO GOOD! :)

Evelina said...

Haha your whip cream spoon is great! And enjoy your going away party this weekend!!

Candace Shiflet said...

I love those leggings!!! They are super cute + way to kill it in class! And I don't know why you're worried about body maintenance, you work out all the time so I bet you already are in tip top shape!! Me on the other hand... haha and I bet the going away party will be fun seeing friends and eating yummy food. Prayers for nice weather coming your way! xo C

Sparkles and Lattes said...

I hate that I am going to have to shave my legs more soon too. Always a pain. Especially when you have kids who bang on the bathroom door. ugh. I really hope you have a good going away party this weekend. I can't wait to read about it.

Foxy's Domestic Side said...

So I was at the gym last night and the lady standing behind me looked so much like you, it was crazy! Anyway that was creepy at all. I don't even really know you, lol. Have fun at your going away party! What do your parents think of the big move? OH and it doesn't count as a repeat outfit if no one saw you in it...Same way you can recycle a dress to a wedding...if no one was at the second wedding from the first, you're good to go :)

Carolyn said...

WELCOME TO INSTAland!!! :) Also - cute blazer. Also also - your legs are KILLER in that pic! Keep it up homie!!!!

Erin LFF said...

You ARE fierce girlfriend, work it!! ;) I'm sure your party will turn out fabulous and everyone will have a great time. I'll send good weather vibes your way!!

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

It's not braggy to wear something you feel and look good in and then share with others. If you toot your horn about it for weeks, then it's braggy. LOL

People will like the food and drinks this weekend but they're really coming for you guys. It'll be great.

The Girl who Loved to Write said...

You're going to have an amazing time this weekend-people are coming to see you, so as long as you're there, it will be a success!

Emily said...

What's going on with the instagram notifications? I'm not sure I've noticed anything out of the ordinary.

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

Whipped cream spoons?! YES please! Still so excited to see you on Instagram now! A lot of people are upset that Instagram announced a new algorithm feed (like Facebook where they show you what they think you want to see) instead of just showing all posts from those you follow in chronological order. I was worried at first, but it seems like enough people have expressed how upset they are that Instagram has delayed rolling this out and hopefully won't at all. So no big deal hopefully!

Kristina @ Ms.Modify said...

For some reason the whipped cream spoon made me laugh, I love it! I rarely get a sweet tooth, but salt on the other hand is a different story..l confess sometimes I totally kill a whole bag of chips (the big ones!) when I'm alone! Lol

xo, Kristina

Laura said...

Ditto on the IG issue! I've been on for a while, but I'm STILL confused!

Jessica (The Newly) said...

From what I heard, there was so much backlash, IG decided NOT to make any changes to the feeds for now. Hopefully it will stay that way! I'm glad you're on now, yay! You can get your baby fix off my kiddos until you and le hubs decide to have one of your own:)

Nikki @ makeupHER said...

All the Instagram changes have me going "I don't really care" lol. I say just keep doing what we're doing and it'll be fine. You look so great girl! Prayers for good weather for your party!

Queen In Between said...

Years ago after my 2nd baby I went to a weight loss clinic...one of the items in the little cookbook they gave me was to take two graham crackers, spread cool whip between them and then wrap with saran wrap and freeze. For serious it was like a low cal ice cream sandwich. Damn delicious. haha So excited you took the IG plunge....seriously the whole turn on/turn off crap was ridiculous.

A Little NW Charm said...

I totally hear you on the shaving your legs more! Who really likes to do that? (More like, who's got time for that)!. Also, I totally agree with you in Instagram-what's even going on here peeps! I've seen all these notification posts, but haven't done a thing in response (I'm a rebel like that).

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

don't worry about the instagram notifications thing, i don't think anything will actually change or if it does i don't think it will be so bad that we won't see anything at all.. it's weird. just keep on doing you!

fingers crossed for the going away party! i'm sure everything will go fabulous.

love your gym outfit! super cute. i feel you on the sweatpants and long leggings, i'm wearing capris right now but i'm dreading wearing the shorts because they don't actually fit right now lol.
