I have a confession...

I'm joining the linky party at Living a Wonderful Life and posting about my obsessions. {Oh boy do I have a few} But I only picked my top four.

1. C'mon....don't lie. You know you're hooked on it too! Pinterest is awesome! What a great way to organize your "wants!"

2. Jeans. I love jeans. If only I could wear jeans and high heels EVERY day!
Citizens of Humanity are my favorites! (They totally make me taller and thinner...I think.)

3. Thursdays. Weird, right? Thursday is wine night in our house. Wine and VAMPIRE DIARIES!


4. This may make me weird, but when I laminate something and cut it out I HAVE to have the amount of laminate film the same on all sides that I trim. A couple of years ago when I took my letters for my word wall to be laminated at Kinkos the guy helping me started cutting the letters out and he sliced the "H" all wonky. There was like a 1/2 inch of laminate on one side and a millimeter on the other! There was an audible gasp.  No lie, I had to have a mental pep talk with myself that it would be ridiculous to reprint just the letter H and re-laminate it.

I would love to know your obsessions! Join the party!


  1. I have the same laminating obsession! Not only about the cutting but about how it goes into the machine!

    I am also totally obsessed with good sweet tea (and I don't mean syrup sweet tea), pens with a bold tip, and buying things in sets! I guess I may be a little fanatical, you think?

    1. Kathy I'm glad I'm not alone on the laminate thing! And an ice cold glass of sweet tea sounds good right now!

  2. Wine night!?!?!?! Now THAT is something to be obsessed with! I think wine night may just have to be instituted in my house starting this week. Loved reading your obsessions. Have you tried Hudson Jeans or Joes? Those are my current jean obsessions. White House Black market also makes some surprisingly stretchy and booty-licious jeans!

  3. I love Thursdays too! And all my edges have to be straight on my laminating...and everything else!

  5. I love wearing jeans! I wish I could wear them every day of the week! They are so comfy to me! :)

  8. I looove jeans too! I think I would wear them all the time if my principal let me!! :)

  9. Thanks for joining the party! Your lamination description cracked me up! I am so with you on Pinterest and jeans as well (although now that we're close to the 90's, I'm not a fan of my jeans!). I could also go for some sweet tea...yumm!

  10. With you on the jeans thing, I think I have 20 pair and it's just not enough!!


  11. Is it wrong that I am totally loving getting to read about everyone's secret obsessions? Oh well . . . I am just going to admit it. I am LOVING it :) I am still smiling about your laminating addiction. I rarely let anyone else cut my stuff out. I cannot stand when the paper inside that oh-so delightful plastic gets "nicked."

  16. I can honestly say all of your obsessions are mine, except vampire diaries...never seen it, no cable--might have to look it up on Hulu! I let parents help me do most anything in my classroom...but laminating is all me. I don't trust anyone else with my laminating! I am your newest follower. I look forward to reading your posts!
