I’m glad you’re here.
Enjoy your morning, afternoon, or evening coffee
while I share my latest confessions.
First off, I confess I don’t even drink coffee! I love the way it smells, but the taste, not-so-much. So, I’ll be enjoying my favorite hot drink, a chai latte.
Remember that 11 mile run I blogged about last week? The training run I didn’t want to complete? The one where you gave me all kinds of encouragement? Well, you would think all that encouragement would be enough to get me through my last long training run, but it wasn’t. I confess, I skipped, passed over, disregarded my 12 mile training run this past Sunday. It’s so not like me to do so, but I did.
Not only did I skip my long run on Sunday, but I confess that for my dinner on Sunday I ate
one two soft pretzels and enjoyed a glass of wine with my soft, doughy, salty pretzels. Such a strange combo, I know, and topple it with a whole bunch of empty calories and a few tons of carbs-not the best choice for sure. But, I confess, it tasted oh, so, delicious and I would probably do it again if we ever allow those soft pretzels to enter our house!
To make up for the fact that I skipped my long run on Sunday, I decided there was absolutely no way I was ditching my 4 mile run on Monday. With that being said, I was determined to run those 4 miles as.fast.as.I.could! No excuses! And that I did. I’m pretty sure they were the fastest 4 training miles I ever ran! (It must have been those pretzels!) Since I ran those 4 miles and I ran them fast, I decided I needed a little pampering afterwards. I thought it would be perfect to treat myself to a pedicure at
the salon home.
I confess, I’m not one who enjoys decorating for the holidays anymore. It’s kinda a bummer, I know, but I just don’t get too excited about it. However, I kept driving past the local farm market and this giant pumpkin smiles at me every time inviting me to stop, so I did. I decided I would purchase
a few three pumpkins and place them by our front door. Yes, three pumpkins are a bit lame, but it is what it is.
I made dinner on Monday! This is a big hoopla for anyone who knows me personally because I despise cooking and the kitchen. This is partly because Matt is an excellent chef and cooks all the time and partly because I’m lazy when it comes to eating. I could pretty much care less. I didn’t do anything too wild now. Just broke out the crockpot and made Minestrone soup. It’s an Olive Garden copycat recipe and it was quite tasty! Matt even said so himself. And we have plenty of leftover soup for the rest of the week! I must confess, I’m pretty proud of myself!
And last but not least, I confess that this little nugget melts my heart. I could just give him kisses all.day.long. Isn’t it silly how happy a little ball of fur can make me!
I hope you enjoyed your coffee, and thanks for hearing my confessions.

Confession: I loved your images! I just saw a similar pumpkin display yesterday and thought … here we are, Fall. Orange-time.
Thanks for sharing your confessions with us, Amy. By the way, I don’t think three pumpkins is lame at all–it sure beats the zero that are at my house!
I truly believe I put them out there as a snack for the wildlife…we’ll see how long they last! 🙂
Some days we feel it, and some days we don’t. I personally believe that the reason we are successful with our bigger goals is that we allow and accept small side trips. As for the pumpkins, you have me beat. I only have two. 🙂
Coffee and Confessions! I’m not a runner, but I confess that my gym workout yesterday was lame. I didn’t push myself, but at least I showed up. As for the Halloween decorations, three pumpkins seem like a lot to me–I can’t remember the last time I displayed ONE.
Yes, you showed up! And that is more than half the battle!
Sometimes you just have to skip the run and have a soft pretzel (or two).
Thanks, Sondra. And in the long run (no pun intended) it truly is water under the bridge.
These sound like well needed things worth confessing…and that minestrone looks fabulous.
I absolutely LOVE this format. I wonder how many confessions I could make today?
So fun to read your confessions. I printed off the soup recipe. My confession – I bought mini marshmallows at the grocery store tonight, hot chocolate season is upon us and a good cup of hot chocolate needs those marshmallows on top! No pumpkins by my front door, but maybe I’ll dig out a few decorations tomorrow.
