It’s Friday.  Time to ramble.

1.  I confess that I’m sick.  As I write this post, I still haven’t taken a shower for the day (it’s 4pm).  I’m also in my bathrobe.  While no one likes being sick, I think most people appreciate slowing down a bit.  Not me.  I’d kill to be anywhere but stuck inside for the day.  Travis thinks I’m nutso.  I tend to agree, especially after having spent all day inside.

2.  I confess that on Halloween, I ate one fun size Kit-Kat bar.  That was it!!!  So sad.  Send any leftovers you might have to the Wright family please!

3.  I confess that Janetha, Katie and I have some MAJOR news, but I can’t share it until the contracts are signed.  Just know – Blend 2013 will be epic!

4.  I confess that it seems ridiculous to be writing posts and being sick and living life when there are still so many without power or homes after Sandy.  My heart breaks.

I saw this on Facebook last night.  Had to share.

5.  I confess that I have the best husband around.  He came home today and vacuumed, did the laundry and dishes and ran around in circles with the kids.  He knows what I need, even if I am nutso.

He also came home the other day so that I could go read trashy magazines at the nail salon.  JT got married??  Who knew!?

6.  I confess that there’s nothing that gets me out of a funk faster than listening to worship music.  The focus goes from “poor pitiful me” to “saved by grace me.”  Bethel Church is my constant go-to.

7.  I confess that I’m glad I’m not running the NYC marathon this weekend.  I also confess that I don’t think I’ll ever want to run a marathon, ever.  But I could be wrong.

8.  I confess that I almost bought these Pumpkin Spice waffles the other day and the only thing that stopped me was looking at the 1,239-item ingredient list.  WHY, oh WHY, did I ever learn how to read?!!

9.  I confess that I’ve got some news to share with you, but you’ll have to come back Monday to get it. :)

10.  I held a 4 minute plank that other day.  I’m pretty much awesome.

Happy Friday, friends!!

I’m off to take a shower.  Maybe.

QUESTION:  Confess something to me – GO!

    i confess that on wednesday we had no power and there was nothing to do and i was cold and even though people had lost their homes i went to the nail salon and got a pedicure they had power. shameful but it was so enjoyable.

  2. Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning says:

    I confess that I will probably not run a marathon ever. Never say never- but I don’t see it happening any time soon. It just doesn’t sound like fun to me… at all.
    Scratch that- the TRAINING doesn’t sound like fun to me.

    I read that mag at the gym today! Ha!

    I hope you feel 100% better REAL soon and I can’t flippin’ wait to hear the Blend details!!

  3. Dana says:

    I confess I said “yay” outloud when you wrote on IG that you did not buy the Eggos, and again when I read your “why” here. I confess I have a long to-do list right now, but Im sitting here enjoying your blog with a hot cup of tea, instead. Feel better soon!

  4. Jonathan Aluzas says:

    I confess that I’m trying to go full vegetarian but I’m going out for sushi tonight.

    I confess that I can do burpees and such by the buckets, but when it comes to planks I suck.

    I confess that I believe that “runner’s high” belongs in the same category as “unicorn.”

  5. Courtney F says:

    4 min plank!!!!!!!! Oh-mylanta that is crazy-business!
    I confess that I am reading blogs at work. It’s Friday and blog reading at work should be had by all!
    Hope you feel better!!

  6. Courtney F says:

    4 minute PLANK!!! Oh my-lanta that is crazy-business! You go girl! From your previous post, thanks for the competition =)
    I confess that I am reading blogs while at work! It is Friday, a little blog reading happiness should be had!

  7. Laura @ Mommy Run Fast says:

    Oh, no! Something is going around. My husband spent Wednesday in bed, and it was my turn yesterday. Thankfully it was short, and we’re both feeling good today, plus I think L managed to skip it. Can’t wait to hear all your news. Feel better!

  8. Lisa says:

    I confess we’re twins. I’m also sick. Oh man, I haven’t had a stomach virus in forever and forgot how awful they are. Bleh. I am SO hoping I can make it to Blend next year! I am dying to go. Great job on the plank! That’s awesome.

  9. Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen says:

    BLEND! I am still really nervous I’m going to somehow miss signing up due to power outage, catastrophe, or having to work.

    I hope you feel better…and I need to find that People. I love Justin Timberlake, always have, always will…even if he is supposed to be a jerk in real life.

    I beat you: I ate NO Halloween candy at all. Of course, that might be because I was doing Vegan Month of Food…or maybe I just have great willpower.

  10. Ashley F. says:

    Feel better soon! A 4 minute plank definitely makes you awesome!

    Confession: I decided this week that I was going to actually work on being a better person. In the past I have always simply busied myself with extra projects or ignored my problems, but this time I’m going to actually address the causes of the issues and be better: for myself, my family, and God.

    A little deep for a Friday, but I thought it would be good to share it with someone – make it public, if you will. :)

  11. Meghan @ After the Ivy League says:

    A four minute plank? You are definitely awesome! And I’m with you, I hate being sick/run down also. All it does is make me behind on a bunch of stuff I need to do. And I complained about a bad day earlier this week, and then immediately felt guilty because of what so many people are going through thanks to hurricane Sandy. I saw on the news this morning that Staten Island is having a really rough time. And now people are getting kicked out of the hotels early to make room for the marathon runners?? Where are they supposed to go? I understand that marathon is a huge source of revenue for the city, but these poor people had their homes destroyed! I can’t even imagine.

  12. Rebecca says:

    That picture of the phone charging station gets me every time I see it! I live in the Alphabet City neighborhood of NYC (where there was flooding so bad cars were floating down the street) and was evacuated (thankfully my building is fine!). A bar around the corner from my apartment set up two generators and outlets so people could charge their phones and call their families. I’d never been so grateful for anything. I got to call my worried parents and meet some people I would have never otherwise have talked to. Lesson of the week: people are great.

  13. lindsay says:

    i confess that i cannot hold a 4 minute plank and you put me to shame. I confess that i am super excited for someone, can’t say who. And i confess that God has humbled me this week, it was needed! Praying for those in the Sandy aftermath!

  14. Katie @ Talk Less, Say More says:

    Feel better, lady! Remember that sometimes our bodies shut down so that people like us (GO-GO-GO types) will actually take a minute to stop. At least that’s the conclusion I’ve come to… ;)

    And that Blend tease is SUCH A TEASE! No fair. Can I get a hint? Because I already knew it was going to be EPIC!
