Confessions #1

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” ~Marilyn Monroe

Today I'm linking up with E Myself and I for Midweek Confessions and with Leslie for Friday Confessions! So....I confess:

* I laughed about this thing for at least an hour this week.

Oh, so true! Maybe instead of letters to Mr. Right, I'll do a letter to Mr. Wrong next week. That could be fun.

* I'm two weeks behind on Amazing Race episodes. Don't tell me what happened! I know that it's a long shot that Bopper and Mark are still in the game after getting a speed bump, but I love them and I've got my fingers crossed that they win!

* No Justice came out with a new song and I had no idea. My friend posted the lyrics on facebook yesterday and I had to ask her what it was from. I'm a bad fan. Unacceptable. I have got to move back to Oklahoma to be in the know on this stuff! The new single is called Shot in the Dark and I love it. Favorite line: "Your cowgirl boots look too damn heavy for a guy like me to sweep you off your feet."

* I have not seen The Hunger Games. I have not read the book. I realize I may be the only person in America who can say this. College Roomie and Blonde Oklahoma Girl told me the basic plot, and I have to admit I have no desire to read/see it. To each her own, right?

* Last night, I ate a meal that did not include meat. I know, I know. What kind of ranch girl am I? BFF--if you read this blog, please do not call and yell at me! I was in a hurry and just did not have time to cook any meat to go with it. Instead, I ate whole wheat rotini pasta, grated zucchini and summer squash drizzled in olive oil and covered in parmesean cheese, avocado, oregano and red pepper flakes (which I pretty much add to everything). It was super good, really fast, and healthy!

* I know we have not had a new Family Farm Friday blog in a while....sorry about that! BUT, stay tuned for tomorrow. I've got one planned for ya, and I think you'll like it.

* I take back my position that I do not read non-fiction books. I blame "The Help." If y'all have not read this book yet, you need to get off the computer and go buy it right now. It was phenominal! I am a slow reader and I knocked out all 530 pages in two weeks. I couldn't put it down.

* I fell off the wagon. The My Fitness Pal wagon, that is. I started at the first of January but fell off the wagon a couple of weeks ago. I blame traveling for work, green beer, and pancakes at the Bongo Room. (So worth it!) But I'm back on track now and I'm loving it. I feel so much better when I eat healthy and exercise. Shocking, I know.

* I periodically stalk my friends' pinterest pages. Here are a few of my favorite pins that they have done lately!

You are not the only one who didn't read hunger killing kids??? Not for me!

The help is based on my neighborhood in Jackson. (although it was filmed mostly in greenwood since Jackson is obviously bigger now than in the 50s) Also the author went to my high school.

That being said, I am torn on the book -- i LOVED it but its hard for me to watch bc I know Yankees watched it and thought "bad Mississippi" -- and MS isn't like that anymore and even then, not everyone was like that. I'd love to see someone write a book on our good parts too :)

Jen said...

I will not read/watch the Hunger is dead to me along with Twilight and Harry Potter. Welcome back to MFP!

Stephen said...

Awww, I dunno... Don't write off the retards too quickly... (Says the guy who was a knight in shining armour whose trusty steed was a beat-up Corolla. With fuzzy dice dangling from the rear view mirror)! It's not necessarily a relationship with a future ... but it sure as hell would make for some interesting stories afterwards!

I love that last pin. And the dinner creation you made sounds tasty. It's okay to not have meat in your meal when you make something filled with veggies like that. Thanks for following!

Don't feel bad for having no desire for the hunger games. I still have not touched or had any desire to touch the twilight series. You don't half to like what other like, which is why there are so many books in this world :)

As for Family Farm Friday I am SOOOOO stoked! I was wondering if you just dropped that like a bad habit :)

YAY for healthy diets and running! I am going to run a 10K if it kills me by next fall! Also, I will run a half at some point!

I haven't read Hunger Games. And the more people tell me to read it, the more I don't want to. I did read the whole Twilight & HP series, I teach middle school so its important to me to "connect" with my kiddos, but I just am not feeling HG.

Glad I am not the only Anti-Hunger Games person. Our whole middle school is going to the movies tomorrow to see it, as a reward for reading the books and finishing the SBA. I just don't get the excitment over it.
