Friday Confessions 6.22.12

Well, here it is Confession Friday again. Check out the link at the bottom if you want to join in confessing. It's being hosted by Mamarazzi at Dandelion Wishes.

My confessions are many this week....

I confess....that I am so happy that it's Friday!! And that I am off, not just today, but for the whole next week too. We had a big trip planned to CA, but things happened, are still happening, that changed all our plans. So looks like we will stay home instead. I was sorely disappointed and out of sorts at first, but now, I see that things are working out as they should.

confess.... that I have signed up for another race - the Coon Dog Day 5K, held in Saluda, NC. It's good to have something to look forward to - something that keeps me out there running. I'll be running the course for the first time this weekend with a friend. Saluda is a hilly little town, so I'm sure it will be a challenging course. And I can't wait to see the T-shirts!

I confess....that I was thoroughly bummed when I received my email telling me the registration for The Color Run date had been changed from the advertised date. My sisters and I were planning on running it together, along with 2 of my nephews. And now the date is the same as the TRC's first event as an organized running club. And I'm planning on running - it will be my first 1/2 marathon. I am so conflicted

You must check out this video - because even if you don't run, you will want to run this race! And if you are wondering, the song is by Imagine Dragons "On Top of the World".

I confess..... that the Red Velvet Cake I made last weekend was as close to divine as anything I've baked lately. And when my friend asked if the rest of the cake was hers to take home, I confess that I wanted to say "Are you kidding? Of course not!", but instead I said "Of course - it's your birthday!" This made her immensely happy.

Since I will more than likely be home for most of next week, I confess that I have a few things I would like to do. I found a couple of recipes that look interesting, and if they are, then you will seem them posted here. I'd also like to get my thrift divided so I can have even more of it next year. 

Of course, I confess, there is a lot I don't want to do, and most of that includes cleaning. Certainly not on my favorites list.

What are you confessing this week?

Pin It Now!


  1. Yay for having races to look forward to. Boo that you can't do the color run; since you're in Carolina too, that would be have been a sweet setting for a blogger meet-up.

    Enjoy that vacation time next week. I'm jealous =)

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. Enjoy your time off--taking a staycation can be fun and relaxing and you don't have to pack and unpack.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, and I agree about the packing - that is the worst part about going anywhere!

  3. I hope you have a fantastic time on your vacation! I definitely could use one of those, haha.
    That is too funny about your Red Velvet cake. I made some really good cupcakes for my little guys birthday and had a lot of people ask if they could take some home.. I very regretfully said yes.
    Have a great weekend :)
