Confession Thursday–Santa Cat

It’s that time again…PRAYING thumb thumb Confession Thursday–Santa Cat

Confession #1. Sometimes I do laundry because our thousand year old dryer makes the condo hot and steamy. I’m always cold, but our towels are warm as hell.

Confession #2. I bake for the same reason. 110 year old stoves are great at heating the entire house (and potentially catching fire). And now you know why I avoid the kitchen in July.

Confession #3. A mixing bowl is my favorite bowl to eat out of.

Sure I had a salad for lunch, but you should see the looks I get when I pile it full of ice cream wlEmoticon winkingsmile9 Confession Thursday–Santa CatIMG 3510 800x600 thumb Confession Thursday–Santa Cat

Confession #4. I have been called the Grinch on more than one occasion. I’m taking it as a compliment because I love that Jim Carrey movie.Jim Carrey Grinch thumb Confession Thursday–Santa Cat(image source)

Confession #5. I think 72% of my grocery budget is spent on gum and hot cocoa these days.

Confession #6. I’ve been dreaming about Ben’s mom’s food all week. My upcoming trip might be dangerous to my waist as I’m already drooling over all the banana bread and cookies in my future. Oh, and the trips to Cracker Barrel…IMG 4617 600x800 thumb Confession Thursday–Santa Cat

Confession #7. I like making fun of myself.

A little too much.

    Confession: In the winter, I don’t wash my hair for DAYS because it’s sooooo cold when it’s wet.

    I’ll totally pull any tricks to get warmed up too!!!!!

    Confession: I WENT WAY OVER BUDGET on Christmas gift shopping. We’re newlyweds… lol.

  2. says

    Sometimes I order my husband a soda just so I can have some. Sometimes I bathe my son just to sit in the steamy bathroom.
    Sometimes I decorate my house with candy and then eat it.
    Sometimes I dress up my akita like a wolf and call her Jacob.

  3. says

    hah cats crack me up. they’re so sassy looking i love it.

    my confession is i always order the healthy item and encourage my husband to get something bad then eat half of his dinner :)

  4. Samantha says

    hahah!I am glad that you didn’t get sick from Vegas!

    Confession: Vegas was not fun. I actually hated every bit about it, but I actually want to go back. I don’t know why, but maybe just because I’m a glutton for punishment! (And will carry my own water!)

  5. Kelly says

    Confession: I love grocery shopping! I know people usually hate it but I LOVE it. I get to see all the new stuff(especially this time of year) and I get to put all of my favorites in the cart. I guess it goes hand in hand with the fact that I also LOVE to eat! Ha!

    Love Cracker Barrel. My go to breakfast after a half marathon or marathon or really after any run. In my neck of the woods, they are on every corner!

  6. says

    Confession: I’m jealous of all of Ben’s mom’s cooking you’ll be eating and your trips to Cracker Barrel.

    Who thought it was a good idea to start eating healthy after Thanksgiving? This girl. I am also bound and determined to get back to my happy weight before this month’s end, and hate that quote that says, ‘Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” Because while thin feels pretty good, nothing can compare to fresh out of the oven Christmas cookies….nothing!

  7. says

    Confession – I might eat this entire bag of banana chips today.
    Confession – I’m wearing the same lulu jacket to work that I wore to the gym this morning (but, I only warmed up in it) (but I work in an office)
    Confession – My dogs are going to see santa this weekend. There will be an entire blog post about it.
    Confession – I can’t shut up about crossfit and I think everyone is going to defriend me. IRL.

  8. says

    I love the look that Vegas is giving the camera! It’s priceless! I don’t think I could gets either of my cats to do that unless I wanted two bloddy stumps for arms after.
    Confession: I haven’t been able to focus on anything at work today and my usual motivators (lunch, cup of tea) are not working! 5pm can’t get here soon enough! Boo grad school!!

  9. says

    Poor Vegas, he looks thrilled :) My cat either freezes or drops to the floor when I try to dress him up, not sure what that is all about.

    Confession…I’ve never been to Cracker Barrel
    Confession…I’m addicted to Gtalk
    Confession…I haven’t really thought about Christmas shopping since the end of November…
    Confession…Christmas Eve is my favorite holiday

  10. says

    Vegas looks SO impressed with you. Reminds me of my Husky Raider when I put his puppy Patriots Jersey on him, he gives me the exact same look, I can practially hear him say “Mom, come on, really?”

    Confession: I’ve done maybe 2 hours of actual work today, the rest I’ve been lurking at blogs and finding new books I want to read. Don’t tell my boss!

  11. says

    Vegas as Santa is hilarious! Love it.

    Confession: I’m totally in the mood to make cookies and I’ve been plotting them. I’m thinking of making a regular chocolate chip cookie and then taking Trader Joe’s Mini Peppermint Waffle Cookies and chopping them up to put in the batter. Since I can’t eat the raw batter (preggo) I’m planning on making up for it by eating the just-baked cookies. Waahaahaha!

  12. Melissa R. says

    I ate an entire bag of Muddy Buddies Chex Mix today. It was damn good. I hid the empty bag in the trash. The chex mix was a joke gift for a friend. Screw her.

  13. says

    OK, I am obsessed with Cracker Barrel. It is a must that I visit one when we roadtrip out of California. Chicken and dumplings!

    And cute First Communion pic! (I’m guessing that’s what it is – you look about 7-ish). My parents have a similar one, but all staged at a studio with this crazy intricate long dress my Italian grandmother made. By the time I got to Confirmation no one gave a crap to have a fancy dress and nice pics. Ah well. Guess I was cuter at 7.

  14. says

    Aw, Vegas is too cute. I love those pissed off expressions.

    As much as I should want hours at my work, I’m glad to have some time off. The holiday season is surely a slow one. And I’m glad I can enjoy it with my husband and family. :-)

  15. says

    hahaha, I have also been called The Grinch many times, always by my husband who thinks that my dislike of uber-cheesy and tacky Christmas decor makes me grinch. I say it just makes me TASTEFUL. Also I have a Santa beard/hat combo for my cat and she completely hates me too when I put it on her.

  16. Elizabeth says

    I’m dressing my dog up as Santa on Saturday and taking him to have his picture taken with Santa. This is going to be amazing. Perhaps you should take Vegas?

  17. says

    Which kind of gum? Cuz I am obsessive about that Extra! Desserts mint chocolate stuff (even though I hate mint chocolate anything else), but I live in Canada and you can’t get it here in the great white North. Sometimes I leave my pet beaver behind and go to Target in Michigan just to stockpile it, but I don’t have much room in my igloo to keep a lot on hand. ;)

  18. says

    I love eating out of mixing bowls too! I totally got your pic about the bad water in Vegas and I almost choked b/c I laughed when I read it. Your cat dressed up is too awesome for words.
    confession: I think you are hysterical
    confession: I love doing dishes. Its very calming to me.

  19. says

    I ate an entire block of Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar yesterday with crackers. And drank almost an entire bottle of wine. So it’s my “comfort food when I’m sick” – big whoop, wanna fight about it?!

    Haha, love the Vegas pics, my cats would kill me in my sleep if I tried that.

  20. Malin says

    Love the pictures of Vegas. If I try to put anything on my cat he freaks out, scratches everyone in sight and hides under the bed.

  21. says

    The look on your cat’s face is priceless. On time my Dad visited Florida, I asked him to bring me back Mickey Mouse ears for my cats. Somehow, he managed to find two pairs. I like to torture them with the ears when guests come by. Which isn’t too often, oddly enough…

    Anyway, somehow this seemed appropriate:

  22. Jenn says

    The Southern Nevada Heath Department and the Water Authority both tested the water in Vegas and was clean and not the cause of illness.
