Can I Tell You A Secret?

Can I tell you a secret?

  • I hate 'Throwback Thursday'.  I don't want to see your old pictures, I just don't care.  Sorrynotsorry.  I avoid IG on Thursday's, it just isn't worth being irritated over.
  • This is the first year in a very very VERY long time that I've been itching to put my Christmas decorations up before Thanksgiving.  If we weren't hosting Andy's family for Thanksgiving I just might have given in to my whim.  But instead I'm respecting the bird (also, I'd be sick of seeing the 'clutter' a week or two before Christmas and be joensing to take it all down early).
  • I used to hate MMA/UFC fighting, it was so gross and violent and just awful to watch. And then, out of nowhere, I started liking it.  What?!?  That is so not me - I'm a girly girl!  I watched it just last weekend when Andy was gone to an away game with his buddies for the weekend.  Here I was, all by myself, watching MMA fighting.  Bizarre.
  • I started drinking pop again after almost a year without it.  #loser  And when did I start?  After I got pregnant this time.  To my defense, I didn't know I was pregnant, but once I found out I was I didn't stop drinking it.  So dumb.  And now I'm addicted again.  I need to stop.  Again.
  • I gained 10lbs while pregnant.  Want to know how I gained 10lbs?  By eating all the crap I could get my hands on!  In the first few weeks I gained 5lbs because I was starving all.the.time.  I'd eat a meal and be starving, stomach growling, an hour later.  After that passed I would grab a sweet snack in between meals.  Baby liked sweets.  So now I need to curb that, too.  What a pain.  And the whole time I was gaining I thought "no biggie, I'll be breastfeeding this baby, too, so the weight will fall off again."  And now look, no baby to nurse so the weight won't be just 'falling off'.  It's going to suck trying to lose these 10lbs, and then to lose another 15 like I wanted to do before getting pregnant. 
  • It just dawned on me this year how dumb it is that the Elf on the Shelf does mischievous things around the house when the whole point of that little guy is to keep kids from being naughty.  Seriously, how silly is that? So this year our Elf will not be making messes and not being wrapping toilets and he will only be doing good and nice things. 
What secret are you willing to share with me?

  1. I, too, dislike TBTs. Not a fan. I have kicked the Mt Dew but still have the occasional Sprite. I am glad to hear you are in good spirits. Happy Monday!

  2. I hate Throwback Thursday too. I get tagged in it sometime on fb from my brothers but I haven't done one on my blog in some time. It is just a pain for me to dig through all my pictures from 1984 and find one to post.... and I was an ugly kid and no one wants to see that.

    I have been wanting to put up our Christmas decor too but we are also hosting Thanksgiving so I will have to wait until Friday....

    My brother is an MMA fighter. I don't agree with it. He is 32 and has two daughters so I think he needs to grow up. He has been doing it for about 6 years and has only lost maybe 3 times. He still dreams of going pro and I just wish it would give it up. I can't watch him because I have flash backs from a very low point in his life when he was on life support and I just keep thinking when he is punched in the face I am going to be there in that hospital room again. I think if he didn't fight I would love it.

  3. I don't mind the TBT's but the Time Hops?! Ughh, make me want to punch someone! Haha!! #sorrynotsorry

  4. I'm not a huge TBT fan, but sometimes there are some good ones that are fun to post. What I don't care is what you had for breakfast/lunch/dinner. Really, please don't post your food. It's not interesting.
    We put up our Christmas decorations this year. I talked Scott into it. Thanksgiving is SO late this year, that had we waited till after Turkey Day to put them all up we would have to turn around and take them down again in the blink of an eye.

  5. I don't do Elf on the Shelf, but agree with your argument on it. I'm not much in the Christmas spirit this year. No particular reason why. I've been addicted to soda for forever. TBT isn't my thing either. Not that I hate it, but I don't feel the urge to participate. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  6. Sometimes I'm with you on TBT, but sometimes it's fun to see super old pictures of people!
