Confession Session.

So it has been a while since I’ve done one of these…I figured now was just a good a time as any to do a little confession session! Here it goes…

-Even though sometimes I teach spin at night, I am a morning workout person. Mainly because the minute I start thinking about the fact that I am working out I’m already done. It’s a good feeling.

-At my 9-5 I wear my headphones all day while I write promos (I don’t talk about it much but I work in local television behind the scenes) Something about listening to music really keeps my creative juices flowing.

-I actually like the taste of black coffee. My brew of choice is a dark roast. Yep…I could probably just drink it straight right out of the pot.

-Having alone time really reenergizes me. I think that’s why I really enjoy running alone and hashing all of my thoughts out.

-I like to dance and sing when I run…and blast my music out loud on my phone. Sometimes I get strange looks but it’s all good. I like to rock out.

-Obsessed with all things fall. Yes I have already purchased my first bag of candy corn which is hidden in my desk at work. My favorite thing to do is to mix it with nuts so I also bought some cashews. I figure if I hide it at work…I will occasionally forget it’s there. Ha.


-I love to flat iron my hair. Not sure why…it’s therapeutic…especially while having a glass of wine and getting ready for a night out.

-Right now I am actually loving dating and being a single gal. After being in a serious relationship for over 5 years (part of it was long distance) it’s very refreshing to have some sort of freedom.

-The other night on a first date I spilled sangria at the table. Haha oh well…I guess I broke the ice.

Being 30 isn’t so bad…in fact I feel sassier and am loving myself now more than ever before.

What are some things you want to confess today?

  1. ugh…. today… I couldn’t get out of my own way and even though I REALLY needed coffee I was running late so I couldn’t stop…goal: do not fall asleep at work…lol

    even though I probably shouldn’t I’m going to go get my nails done bc it makes me happy

    I am desperately in need of a shopping session…. I feel prettier in new clothes!

  2. I really related to so many of your confessions! I feel the same way about morning workouts. The difference between how I act during the day if I’ve already worked out vs if I just rolled out of bed is HUGE! I’m also trying to get used to this whole being single thing…I have no interest in dating yet but I’m really loving just being by myself lately. Which is funny because it scared me so much for so long. I also have headphones in playing music 24/7 it’s a little nuts haha. And candy corn and nuts? Don’t even get me started. I’m going to get my first fall candle and stash of candy corn in just a few hours! Time to jump on the autumn train!

    1. I used to feel the same way about dating. But yes don’t jump into the pool until you are healed and ready. My relationship ended on my accord…so I have been like a caged animal for quite some time. I LOVE it!! haha. It’s fun to be wined and dined 😉 Oh yes, I found a great fall pumpkin-y candle and my favorite thing to do is go home and light it after work!

  3. Awwww man! You get to wear headphones at work … let me just say JEALOUS haha! I wanna be like you when I grow up ha 🙂 and I also like to run solo too. Yep the 30’s are awesome sauce lol. Cahews and candy corn hmmm never thought of the combo. The pefect mix of salty and sweet awesome! Confessions …. ummmm 1) grasshoppers have a tendency to make me scream like a groupie haha and 2) I also sing out/mouth the words to the songs on my playlist while on the treadmill at the gym. I know people probably think I’m weird especially the muscle heads but what eva!! That’s how I flow and it makes the workout fly by. That’s a just a couple confessions otherwise you’d be here a while haha 😉

  4. I love candy corn also! I keep it in a drawer under my desk at work. Sometimes I do forget it’s there but not often! Love your confessions! I don’t really have any except for that I run with no underwear on and I’ve never regretted it! (yet) lol

  5. I wondered what you did (I always wonder what my blog friends do at their “real” jobs)!!
    Very cool that you work for a TV station.
    Enjoy your single time – I love to hear when people enjoy being singe and don’t feel like they just have to jump into a relationship!!

    1. Yeah I have never felt pressure to jump into anything…thanks to my family…my mom is always telling me to take my time and enjoy. One day I’m sure she will harp on me to have grandkids but I suppose I have a little more time! haha!

  6. I love some black coffee!! The darker the better! It’s just tasty!
    I’m so glad you’re enjoying your 30s… It gives me hope for the impending future 🙂

    1. Well I just turned 30…but yes so far I’m enjoying it. I don’t think it should be dreaded at all…in fact I think I like it more than my 20s. When I was 29 I was always dreading it but now I just laugh because flirty 30s is where it’s at!

  7. it’s fun to read these things and get little insights into our virtual friends’ lives. 🙂 i confess that i cannot wait to finish my grad program and be a therapist or head right for a doctorate — SO ready to enter that field full time! also confess that i’m a huge hippie at heart and the thought of heels/bras/anything that isn’t flip flops and bikinis and messy hair makes me cringe. 🙂

    1. Yep…working in the tv industry as a producer I can wear a lot of casual stuff…very blessed to be able to do so and not have to wear heels every day!! I save the fancy stuff for when I strut out on the weekends 😉

  8. Wow, I’m not kidding you…as I was reading your post and now writing a comment…I AM EATING CANDY CORN WITH CASHEWS!!! Hehehe!! Such a yummy mix!!
    I’ve gotta say, in all the pictures you post, your hair looks amazing!!! You have beautiful hair!!
    I also like to workout in the morning. It’s like pulling teeth to get myself to workout at night.
    I love ALL of your confessions!! You’re so amazing!!

  9. I’m with you on the coffee…dark n’ bold is best.
    My Spin-fession…while I like going to classes as a participant once on a while, I prefer teaching because I get to BRING MY MUSIC!

  10. I really like being in my 30s. I feel like overall I’m more confident and happier with who I am than I was in my 20s, although I do still have my moments. I love my alone time, too. Working retail and having to deal with people all day really saps my energy. Gotta recharge the batteries!

  11. I feel like an idiot. Did I miss your birthday? when was the big 3-0. Wait, I think I wished you a HBD on IG? Ugh. I’m so confused. LOL and 30 is a great age. Really. It’s after 30 you’re like, “wait, how old am I?” I keep saying 33, but I’m 34. Oh well. I’ll get it… one of these years. Hopefully not when I’m 40. PS, and you’re in a new age bracket for races. Right?

  12. You have more talent than I do for being able to drink wine and flat iron your hair. Each time I do it, I’m like “Yeah, this looks good” then I look back at pictures from the night before and I look crazy. Wine + flat iron = me looking like a hot mess lol
