{Confessional Friday}

The last time I did a "confessional" blog post it seemed to go over really well so here I am with another one. I also just have a lot of things to confess, apparently.

1. I confess that I do not understand the fascination or obsession when it comes to #SHARKWEEK. Do people really like sharks that much or is it just the trendy, cool thing to post about? I personally don't get it. I hate sharks. They aren't pretty animals and they eat people. Stop posting about Shark Week. It isn't "in" anymore. And do you really spend the whole week in front of the TV watching shark documentaries? Who has time for that?

2. Speaking of television, I confess that I cringe when my husband turns it on Tosh.o. I can't stand that show. It is so repulsive. Everything he talks about is dirty and makes me want to vomit.

3. I confess that 4 months after having my baby, I am STILL wearing my maternity leggings....not because I need to, but because I want to. Holy cow, comfortable. Nothing else compares. #Secksy

4. I confess that there is breast milk splattered ALL over my iPhone. I have no idea how it gets there, honestly. It is quite the mystery. I wipe it off just to find it on there again the next day. I give up.

5. Speaking of phones, I confess that I dropped mine on my face one morning last week when I was laying in bed. I do this quite frequently and I am beginning to think I have a problem. Does anyone else do this? You are checking your Instagram and BOOM, your phone is suddenly planted all over your face. It is so painful and not attractive.

6. I confess that I am finally starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel with Millie. She is sleeping at night and is smiling and cooing. She just looks comfortable. It really is so pleasant to be around her and know that she is finally feeling well again.

7. I confess that sometimes it gets to me that we don't have a whole lot of extra money to spend on material things we want. When everything went down with Millie, I wasn't able to work for a good 3 months and did not have a paid maternity leave. Money has been very tight especially because of our unique situation. Medical bills from her NICU stay and my 2 week hospital stay have taken precedence over everything else. I am young, and consider myself to be somewhat stylish however, I haven't bought anything for myself in months. Seriously, I can't remember the last time. When I became a mommy, everything changed. I only care about getting Millie the things she needs. However, that doesn't keep me from feeling sad when I see a pair of shoes I want and I know we can't afford. This verse below has helped me get through this season and helped me to realize the material things that I think I want and need aren't really what matters.

"Therefore, if you were raised with Christ, look for the things that are above where Christ is sitting at God’s right side. Think about the things above and not things on earth." 
Colossians 3:1

On a side note, happy birthday to my sweet, baby Millie! She is 4 months old today although her adjusted age is 5 weeks old. She is smiling, cooing, grasping objects with her hands and holding her head up quite nicely.


Millie is getting baptized next weekend! Here is a preview of her little baptismal bonnet. She is wearing the same gown and bonnet I wore 28 years ago for my baptism. It will be an incredibly special day as her daddy gets to perform the sacrament in front of the congregation and all our family and friends.



As always, thanks for reading. I hope you all have a blessed weekend. I also hope I didn't offend anyone who likes sharks.
