Friday Confessions

Happy Friday ladies! I always feel better when I start my weekend with a brain dump of miscellaneous confessions. 

I confess... that I've been too hot and exhausted to do anything this week....literally. Our school doesn't have air conditioning so by the time I get home every day I'm sticky and grumpy and exhausted. I have four half finished blog posts in the queue and I'm completely off my gym schedule, which I think is actually ok since its too hot to eat anything but fresh fruit and salads. 
This has been my saving grace this week. image

I confess...that when the state mandatorily evacuated our building yesterday when the temperatures reached 100 degrees inside, I did a little happy dance. I was able to go home an hour early and took the coldest shower of my life and a long nap. 

I confess...that as glad I am that the school year is officially over on Monday, I'm going to miss my kiddos. They were so super cute at their Kindergarten graduation yesterday. I am so proud of them.

I confess..that I feel a little guilty that I've been so slack with my teaching blog. I'm going to try to update it over the summer while everything is still fresh in my mind. I definitely don't want to forget my first year in innercity Newark. 

I confess...that I'm looking forward to a cocktail (or several) tonight. I had the best skinny mojito last weekend. I'm definitely wanting another of those tonight. Aren't mojitos just the best on hot summer nights?

I confess...that my car is a mess from cleaning out my classroom with all of the end of the year stuff. And I do not want to clean it. Its really difficult to keep it clean and organized since we park it in the garage under our building and it is valet. I have to get with the program on this, though, since I'm driving home to South Carolina next Thursday.

I confess...that I'm super excited about my second Bridal Shower on Sunday. This is my shower for my New Jersey friends and future family. I have another Lilly dress to wear from when Lilly was recently on Rue La La. If you missed the sale because you're not a member, click the button on the sidebar to get your invite.

Happy Friday Lovelies! What are your confessions?


  1. I got a Lilly dress on RLL for my upcoming shower too! (the Shawna) Hope you have a great shower and a wonderful weekend! :)

  2. Mojitos are so refreshing. Have lots this weekend - you deserve it!

  3. Gracious this heat! The a/c went out in our office yesterday and they made us stay until 5, per usual. When we left, it was 97 in the building! Thanks for linking up, pretty lady!

  4. Oh my goodness, I can't believe you don't have heat in your classroom or school! Yikes! I'm glad that you are going to enjoy a COLD cocktail this weekend and hopefully relax. xo

  5. Visiting from Confessional Friday!

    Girlfriend, I am all about the fresh fruit salads in the summer! And smoothies! Maybe that's why it's so much easier to stay in shape and look good... why can't winter be so easy?! ;)

    Happy Friday!!

  6. No AC?! Yikes! I'm glad you've been enjoying some summer cocktails and fresh fruit though! I'm skipping drinks at tonight's dinner simply because I'm under the weather and need to rest up for our big night out in the city tomorrow night. :) Have a great weekend!

  7. Love it!


    Have a great weekend! xo

  8. LOVE mojitos! I'd love to see the skinny recipe :)


Thank you for stopping by!
