Friday Confessions

Happy Friday girlfriends! This post hails from Key West, Florida where Corey, his sister, his parents, and I are visiting for a family wedding. 

confess... that I'm loving, loving, loving this work week. I do love my kiddos at work but I also seriously love the occasional break. And having a two day work week this week is really what I need to prepare me for the month ahead and the final stretch of the school year.

confess... that the weather forecast looks a little grim for Key West during our visit. Something about a tropical storm? While I was hoping for some beach time, I confess that I'm happy just to spend some time with my second family and relax.

confess... that I always get mushy at weddings. The wedding is tonight and I'm sure I'll shed a tear or two.

confess... that I get Riley sick when I travel. When I'm in New Jersey, I often get homesick for the South because it will always be home to me and I miss the lifestyle. I miss the slower pace and the hospitality and manners. But when I'm home home with my family I sometimes get homesick for the home Corey and I have here together. Regardless of where I am, I always get homesick for Riley when we're away. I mean, how could I not with such a sweet face?
{this is what a sleepy Riley looks like}
He's busy playing with a Cavalier friend for the weekend. We'll be reunited Sunday around lunchtime.

confess... that I am really excited that it is June. I don't really know where May went. (??) It really flew by but I'm excited for the month ahead. I have three showers within the next month and my second dress fitting. June really is the month for wedding events and last minute wedding preparations as there is something wedding related every weekend. 

confess... that on that same note, I've been feeling a little anxious lately. I've been having nightmares that something doesn't get done for the wedding. That I don't finish my crafting. That I don't find the right picture frames for my Meet the Maids and Meet the Men table. That Hobby Lobby sells out of the True Touch hydrangeas my mom needs for the wreathes. That the current hair shortage affecting cosmetologists keeps my hair and makeup designer from being able to get my extensions. Clearly, this will be a Bridal Talk Tuesday topic in the near future. 

confess... that for the time being, I'm going to grab a vodka tonic and enjoy another four day weekend. Happy weekend lovelies! 


  1. I have been having sooo many wedding nightmares lately! Let's hope we can both stay calm haha.

  2. The husband and I are going down to Key West during the fourth of July weekend for a mini vacation. Fingers crossed that we don't encounter a tropical storm or hurricane while there. During this time, it's always a chance you take doing a vacation in that area!
    Just gotta enjoy your time there sipping some pretty drinks and enjoying family :)

  3. I get weepy all the time at weddings now. It's ridiculous! Have fun in Key West! Hope the weather turns out for you!


Thank you for stopping by!
