Confession Friday

I confess that I in fact DID NOT have eczema last week, but I had self induced burning of the skin!  I used Lavender essential oil on my stomach, and I guess when they say to dilute it....they mean dilute it.  I indeed burnt my own skin.  Yes...yes I did.

I confess I am obsessed with filing my heals down.  At the rate I am going I will be down to bone soon.!  I just hate rough heels and feet.  And I do confess that what spurred this obsession is way back when my hubby was giving me a foot rub and said..."hmmmm, your heels remind me of my mom's...all rough and dry.."
Ever since I have become addicted. name is Krista.  And I am addicted to smooth feet.

I confess that I also have a hang up about dirty snow.  I do not like the way it looks.  I even go to the extent of when I shovel off our driveway, I will cover up the dirty, salty snow that has come off my vehicle with nice white snow.  I love the look of white snow.

I do confess that I am soooo excited for a fellow adoptive mom who just received amazing news, and I am so happy for them!  They have had a bad few months, and now....its over.

I confess that I waste baby wipes.  No folding over for me.  I know it's a waste, but when you have dealt with parasitic pooh for as long as we just wipe and get a new one.  I feel bad about this, as with Jay, I even went to the extent of cutting my wipes in half.

I confess I am super excited for tomorrow at 11am!!!

I confess that I had an uhhhhuh moment while watching TLC's Hoarders.  One of the hoarders children broke down and said, "How do you think it has made me feel...all these years when you just come home and head straight for the computer...and dont' even care to see how my day was .......etc."  It really made me think about keeping computer time for the evening, and spending quality time with my kids.  Not that I am that extreme..but it just made me think.  It had a lasting impact on this boy.  His mom seeming not to care, that the computer and TV was more important than him.  Which leads me to.......

I confess on the radio I heard that they say if you spend more than 1 hour a day on facebook, you are not happy in your life.  I confess that too made me wonder......sooooo if facebook is just left on during the day, and you just check it when you walk by, or when you hear the dliing, of facebook chat going off, does that count?  But then really....why does it have to be on.  Am I not happy in life?  Should I quit reading blogs and online shopping cause that will equal more than an hour..........hmmmmm. ( I think not, but I do think that I am reflecting and doing some serious cut back in computer time...)

I confess I feel like our adoption is now complete that Rana and Yvan have their son Ade.  I know, that may sound weird, but it has been over my head that we received our referral one day apart, and Ade was still there with out his mama and papa.  I held him, and kissed him for his mama....and after holding him, my heart just had an ache for him, his mom and his dad, because of all the delays.  But he is with his family now.  I feel so happy for them all....

Tiny Prints.

 I feel the need to share my awesome finds from Tiny Prints.....Have you heard of them?  They are awesome.  It's a site to order Christmas cards, invitations, day planners, photo gifts...etc.

Here is what I have ordered so far and I love it.... a day planner, photo cards and canvas prints.  I love them.  Very very good quality.  And fast shipping.  I just love a good deal, so I thought I would share it with you!! Oh and plus they have lots of promotions to bring the cost down.  I just ordered some canvas prints at 50% off.  This is something I made for a friend...(it looks small, but it is 10x10, oh and it's blurry cause I didn't get their permission to put their pictures up) .Check Tiny prints out..You will love them.  I wish I could show yo the day planner I got from them, it had Nevaeh and Jayden's picture on the front, but I can't get that to show, since it's already been received by me..

If you click on the link below, you will get 10 dollars off 50 dollars, or 20 dollars off 100 dollar order!  Oh yeah baby!

 I confess that I cannot get this signature at the bottom of the post like it is suppose to......!!!  What's going on.

 I confess that I have a major flare up of eczema.....I am itching and itching, I am going crazy............

I confess that I am really missing going on a hot vacation this winter!

I confess that I am going to Jay's hockey game tomorrow, and she is really excited when Nevaeh and I come to the games.  I confess though, that I don't actually get to see more than a few shifts of her playing, as I am totally consumed by Nevaeh at the rink! But she thinks we watch the whole game.

I confess I am excited to get a new puppy soon, but hate how attached I get to animals.  I am nervous as our last puppy had a bad out come when she was getting spayed, and it was very hard to lose her. I hope our next dog is with us for a long time....

I confess that I do as  well hate word verifications on my removed it awhile ago, but have now put it back on as I was getting crazy spam.  So sorry Lynds (wink) its back on!

I confess that I am addicted to a few show, like Greys Anatomy, and it irritates me how they do 2 or so new episodes, and then back to reruns....don't they know I look forward to that show and count down the days until Thurs?  Oh and I am addicted to Modern Family....Private Practice.....Celebrity Rehab......90210...and this one I am opening up myself to a bunch of flogging....but I do also watch Degassi, the next Generation.  I know.  BUT I am not addicted..i just have it PVR' I watch when it shows up on the pvr.  But since it's PVR'd....i suppose that means it's close to being an addiction...hmmmmmm.

Since my signature Cheers is still at the top,

Confession Friday.

Following my good friend Rana, I am going to start Confession Friday!!!!

I confess that it is actually Saturday am and I should be in bed....but I'm not...As usual!

I confess that I have butterflies in my stomach for Rana and Yvan, and that I am so excited for them to meet their son.  FINALLY!

I confess that I have had feeling of guilt ever since we have passed court, and Rana and Yvan were caught in every speed bump they could hit.  (don't get me wrong, I never felt any guilt from them, only happiness, but when you get referrals a day apart, you "should" be on the same time line.)

I confess that I have listened to my 7 year old's Justin Bieber's CD and actually even cranked up "Never Say Never" when I was driving home from town alone.  And then I hit repeat.  TWICE! 

I confess I am addicted to Stella and Dot jewelry.  I love it.  I never thought I'd be a jewelry girl....but man am I ever.  I am selling it now and confess that doing a trunk show is nerve wracking!

I confess that I am a home body.  I love my home, and am so thankful for a warm house, with a real fire place on a cold night like tonight.

I confess I miss Ethiopia.  I love it there.  I love the people.  I love the friends we made there.  Everything.  Part of my heart was left in Ethiopia. 

I confess I listened to the whole CD of Justin Bieber.  Not just one song.  And I have a Justin Bieber Tshirt that I sleep in.  (what can I say...I get caught up in the concert mode...and yes...I confess I loved the JB concert I took my daughter to with my good friend and her sister.

I've heard these a time or two!

So here is a video that is a bit over the top, but some of the questions are bang on. I don't answer like some of these, but in my head this MAY be what I am thinking! Don't take offense if you have asked me some of these questions, it just gets a little bit repetitious. Some are questions that I won't answer. Like her past story, where her mother is, ect. But if you are really lucky, I MIGHT let you touch her hair!
