Owning It: A Confession of Sorts

This is basically a confession session.

You know. Owning all of the crazy things I may or may not do; the secrets I may or may not have been hiding from y'all.

Ready? Let's go!

I'm terrible about cleaning the dishes in the sink.
I love to play in the water like a five year old once I actually start washing the dishes, but it's the getting started part that is the hardest. This is exactly what my sink looked like when I got home from work yesterday:

I run the dryer a least 5 times before taking my clothes out and putting them away.
Nah. They can't possibly be dry yet. I bet they're still too wrinkly. I definitely don't have time to put those away now... so let me just turn the dryer back on for another half hour and maybe I'll have some time then.

Once I find something I like, it goes on repeat.
Find a new recipe? I'll make enough to eat it all week and then make it again as soon as I run out of leftovers. Like those Baked Zucchini Chips from earlier this week.
Find a new piece of clothing I like? I'll wear it for any and every occasion. Like those Clemson Paw t-shirts that I wear for every single 5K.

I would rather watch a TV series than a movie.
The same thing goes for books - I would much rather read a series where I don't get abandoned by the characters after a short amount of time. I'll also re-watch/reread these same series over and over and over again. I can't even tell you the number of times that I've read the whole Harry Potter series or watched Gilmore Girls from start to finish.

I have an unhealthy obsession with Tervis.
It started because I dropped my phone in a cup of water that was in my cup holder in my car. Now it's almost the only thing I'll drink out of.

I might text you & tell you "I'm on the way!" but I'm more than likely not even in the car.
I mean, I'm technically on the way to being on the way, so that counts, right?

I won't drink anything but water when I'm eating.
Granted, I don't drink that much outside of water anyway but I'm not one that likes to have a glass of wine or a beer with dinner. I'd rather drink water while I'm eating and then move on to something else like that after I'm finished.

My closet is organized by ROYGBIV.
I think this started in high school? T-Shirts are all organized together by ROYGBIV and then nicer shirts are organized together the same way. But I don't separate between short sleeve/long sleeve.

I set at least 10 alarms every night.
I used to sleep through my alarm all the time, or wake up & turn it off in my sleep. So now I set at least 10. I probably hit snooze a dozen times and wake up about an hour after the first alarm starts going off.

I'm moving from Charlotte to Columbia in two weeks... and I'm really kind of excited about it.
Wait. What?


Linking up with Christina at The New Mrs.


  1. I love this post. I am kind of the same way in a lot of things. I mean, my sink looks similar, I love Tervis, and food is always on repeat for me. Congrats on the move!

  2. wait what? you're moving?! excitement!!
    i sometimes prefer series but also sometimes not because authors can really screw you over, you know? many series (books anyway) i've loved the first and second and the third just ruined my life. tv series for life though. and i totally only drink water when i eat as well. sometimes if we're out i *might* order a fancy cocktail, but i don't drink it with my food. before and after yes, but whilst eating heck no.

  3. What a fun post. I have to tell you, that sink gave me a heart attack, haha. I'm the opposite I flip out if things are left in the sink for more than a few hours!

    Is ROYGBIV colors? I've never heard the term before.

    Hooray for a fun move!

  4. Repeating – me too! Once I find something I like, you can bet it’s around for a while! Speaking of those zucchini chips – I’m hoping to make them this weekend :) Much rather watch a TV series than a movie! I love all your tumblers! YAY for the move! My husband and I are considering a weekend trip to your old spot, Charlotte sometime soon maybe – any reccomendations?!

  5. I'm seriously so happy that my husband doesn't mind doing the dishes - I loathe it! xo, Biana-BlovedBoston

  6. hahaahha - I do the same thing about texting people saying I am on the way but I am still standing in my bathroom getting ready!

  7. Ummm we are the same person. I didn't know anyone else owned the entire series of Gilmore Girls except me. And I only drink water, from my extensive Tervis collection. Let me know when you get settled in Columbia and maybe we can actually meet in person.

  8. Ahh I didn't know you were moving! What?!? Awesome! And I'm horrible at dishes too. I HATE doing them but I HATE them being left in the sink. And I totally making things on repeat!

  9. I'm so glad I'm not the only one with 123456789 alarms! It totally drives my husband nuts that he has to hear it so many times before I actually get up. Good luck with the move!

  10. I found myself nodding along to ton of these. My sink looks just like that....right now actually! I also love watching TV series and re-reading my favorite book series. Harry Potter especially.

  11. Bahaha my alarm situation is so similar!! My husband cannot stand to hear it going off 294729 times before I actually get out of bed. Glad it's not just me! ;) Good luck with the move!

  12. Love love love this! I cracked up a few times...the alarms??!!?? HA-LARious!
