Happy Friday yall! The most wonderful time of the week is upon us yet again. That means it's time for another round of weekly confessions. Here's what's been on my mind lately.
I confess... I like going to the dentist. I think I am definitely in the minority here, but I love how clean my teeth feel after each visit. The dental hygienists are always so sweet and talk to me while they clean my teeth, but I never know if I am supposed to try to respond while they poke around in my mouth or just sit there and nod like a mime.
I confess... I have a love/hate relationship with avocados. I love them because they are delicious and the primary ingredient in one of my favorite foods, guacamole. Typically once a week, I will decide chips and guac will pair as the perfect appetizer for whatever I am cooking that night for dinner and whip up some fresh guacamole for Parker and me to snack on. We are obsessed. As for the hate portion of my relationship with avocados, it is directly associated with the fact that avocados seem to have the shortest shelf life known to man. I cannot tell you how many avocados have gone bad under my watch. It's a struggle.
I confess... I pick money up off of the ground. Typically it's just a penny here and there in a parking lot, but it's an opportunity and every penny counts, right? Parker is disgusted by this habit and is convinced I'm going to catch some weird disease from picking pennies up from the dirty ground. I told him to think about how many hands have touched the money in his wallet. Money is gross if you think about it, so just don't think about it.
I confess... I've decided that people on the east coast eat dinner really late. Obviously this is a huge generalization, but I grew up eating dinner around 5:30 pm. That's a little early for me now, but we usually try to eat around 6/6:30 pm. We don't like going to bed feeling so full, but it is rare that friends here want to meet for a meal before at least 7:00, which means it's at least 7:30/8 before we get our food. We had to develop the 5:00 snack when meeting friends for dinner so we wouldn't get hangry. And by we, I mean just me.
I confess... I shared this picture on Instagram but wanted to share it here too. My in-laws sent us this photobook of their trip to see us from last September. This trip was when we surprised them with the news that they were going to be grandparents, and it was amazing to relive that through pictures. I got to the last page and cried when I saw that they dedicated the book to our baby girl's memory. It's been emotional around here with Taylor Grace's due date just 4 days away, but we are so blessed to have family that love and cherish our daughter's life like we do. I will forever cherish this book.
