Let's try this confession thing again

Happy Sunday! 

Blah blah blah (insert something snarky, yet charming here)... blah blah blah... I don't feel like scraping the bottom of my brain for something interesting to say in this post intro... blah. blah. BLAH.

1. My boobs post-baby suck. There, I said it. They are smaller than they were before and they're like deflated balloons. Thanks, Elsie. But... really, I love you so much that I am okay with the fact that I gave up my boobs for you.

2. I'm obsessed with the Better Homes and Gardens candles from Wal-Mart. I seriously think they're better than Yankee Candles. And that's saying a lot, because I hate Wal-Mart with a fiery burning passion (meaning that I also have to hate everything that comes from Wal-Mart).
Better Homes and Gardens 12-Ounce Candle, Creamy Tahitian Coconut
3. Since discovering running tights, I don't know if I'll ever run in shorts again. Eh, who am I kidding?! The second it gets above 40 degrees I'll be singing the song, "Who wears short shorts? ALYX wears short shorts!" and bouncing down the street in my neon yellow running shorts.

4. I hate running, but I signed up for a half marathon. I think I was drugged and forced against my will to sign up. Or someone spiked my kool-aid. Or I am just really good at succumbing to peer pressure.

5. I've gots da baby fever. You can thank newborn photography for that. I mean, really - just LOOK AT THIS BABY!!!

I love your posts. You are always such an inspiration to me to get back to my blogs. Thank you for that and thank you for always having such fun posts to read. :) And my Blogs thank you because if it weren't for your inspiration they start feeling pretty neglected. LOL

Yeah my boobs suck too. Like a lot. Oh well I guess. :) Henry was totally worth it.

I'm afraid to sign up for a half-marathon but really want to at the same time. May have to just bite the bullet and do it.

I'm with you on the baby fever. At the same time, I REALLY don't want another baby right now. I mean Henry still doesn't sleep through the night. I can't imagine getting even less sleep.

Maybe I need to have a baby so my boobs will get smaller ;-)

RadiantKristen said...

According to bra/boob people, your boobs change size about every 2 years, or more often if you have babies. So just wait, in 2 years you might change your mind again ;). Or just have another baby, and take care of 2 problems in one fell swoop.

Also, I'm pretty sure YOU were sweet talking ME into doing this half with you... so if anyone can complain about peer pressure, it is me. You are going to rock it so hard.

Tights are the best.

Glad you drank the half marathon kool-aid haha. And oh man I've got the fever big time. I didn't realize I would catch it so quickly. But I miss those kicks haha. I loved being preggo so I guess that's part of it. I can't imagine having a 2 yr old and a newborn though.

Baby fever already again?! :)

Danielle said...

ME TOO ME TOO!!! Total baby fever. And running tights are the bomb. The less jiggle the better, that's all I'm saying!! And oh man. The boobs thing. I quit nursing and suddenly all my shirts are about a foot longer. HA!!

Post baby boobs are lame! Between two babies and weight loss, I've gone from a 38D to a 32C. Stinks!

And yay for a half marathon! I'm doing my first in May and my second in October. Oh...and check out running capris. They are just like tights, only cooler temperature speaking. And no thigh chaffing issues!

Colon just did the Spartan race yesterday. I don't think I could do that! I really don't! I KNOW you will be great in the marathon though!

Oh yes... I love those candles. I try to stock up on them.

XO Lourdes

Given how freakin' chilly it is year-round here, I may never get to wear my bright red running shorts ever again! Running in pants feels totally weird.

I'm obsessed with great smelling candles so I'm going to have to try these. I love the glad apple cinnamon ones that are like $5
