cornflake dreams.: confessions from the weekend...

confessions from the weekend...

on a sunday skype date with marissa (from the boot) she reminded me of galmour magazine's 'it's ok' series and it made me laugh. in that spirit, i decided i had a few things to confess from my lazy weekend.

it's ok... 


to look forward to a pile of blankets, a comfy couch and a glass of wine after a long week of work.

to be more excited about a new box of golden oreos than kitschy valentines day treats.

to convince your man you need to buy ingredients for a fancy pizza on tuesday since you're making dinner to celebrate the valentines day. 

to spend 10 minutes in the cereal aisle trying to find something healthy...only to walk away with lucky charms *they are made with whole grains! 

to take long hot showers but dread blow drying your hair afterwards. 


to find yourself watching a disney classic -- the lion king -- and singing along to every song.

to wake up early-ish on sundays because you know you can squeeze in a nap later that afternoon. 


to get v excited about the return of television shows - the walking dead, real housewives of orange county, cougar town. hello friends, welcome back :) 

to think your guy is smooooookin hot in his new suit and imagining your future wedding photos in your mind. 

do you have any weekend confessions?
xo, 
jillian

  19. Such a great idea - I love it :)

    Ha, is it bad that the entire time I'm showering I'm normally debating whether or not I should blow dry my hair or wear it up because I HATE blow drying and straightening it so much! Can definitely relate with you on that one!

    Hope you have a great week Jillian!
