I confess that vacation is heavenly and I never want to go back to work. Ha. If only I could make that happen, but alas we need the money, mommy needs her sanity (adult conversations) and my girls love the socialization.

I confess that I have eaten dessert every night this week and I will do it again tonight. Our cabins have a main lodge that provides breakfast and dinner as part of your stay. The food is heavenly and they have fresh baked pies and desserts everyday. And I have eaten all the pies I can get my hands on....coconut cream pie, mud pie, peach pie, blackberry and the list goes on. I will need to run 7 days straight after this trip.

I confess that I wanted to wear my new bikini so badly this week, but with cabin life and lots of families, I didn't want to show off the goods. My bikini has a slight cheeky to it and is more suited for the beach rather than the cabin. I need to hit the beach soon so I can wear this beauty.

I confess that I needed this weekend away to recharge and reconnect with my family. I get too stressed out at work (even though my work is lower stress) over getting passed up for promotions, people who suck getting rewarded and people taking advantage of things and people. It is nice to get away from it all and see all the good in life.

I confess that not wearing much make up or doing my hair everyday feels really nice. Love cabin life.

I confess that having limited wifi during this trip has been a blessing. We are forced (in a good way) to connect with each other and not with our phones and tv. We can watch a bit of tv in the lodge and we have used the iPad at night to watch a movie while we fell asleep, but little use of technology is heavenly.

I confess that I wrote most of my blog posts for this week way ahead of time. So nice to not have to think about it while I am gone and just link up when needed.

I confess that I felt bad when I called my dentist office to change my appointment last week. I had an appointment scheduled during vacation time (you schedule it 6 months in advance and I didn't know the dates of this vacation yet), so I had to change it. Plus I wanted to change back to my old hygienist. Last time, I got sick the day before my appointment and had to cancel it, so they put me with the newer hygienist and she was ok, but not my girl. So when I called to change this one, I asked for my girl Sarah and said I felt bad, but I like Sarah so much more. Gotta speak up.

And that's all my confessions for the week.


  1. Dessert every night on vacation is a must!!! So glad you are enjoying relaxing.

  2. Dessert on vacation is what it's all about. If you can't do it then when can you? :) yay for having fun and enjoying time without technology. Glad you are having fun.

  3. I've done the same thing with my hygienist--some of them are much better than others and I love the one I have now so I have called to reschedule but make sure that I'm with her.
    Dessert every night does not seem like a bad thing :) Enjoy the rest of your vacation--work can be a stress suck and getting away is good for your soul!

  4. shew..i've had dessert every night this week and i'm not on vacation. Whoops! Sounds like you're having a great time. It's always nice to disconnect from technology but definitely so hard for me.

  5. Sounds like vacation is going great! Dessert every night on vacation is totally allowed!

  6. I am envious of you. I need vacation so badly at this point. I also have a hygienist I love and stick to her.

  7. I do not like change when it comes to my hygienist, she is so good, and I request. If dessert each night on vacation is wrong then I do not want to be right! Enjoy the rest of your vacation with your family!

  8. Sounds like you're having great trip! Dessert every night?! Yes please!

  9. All the yes to dessert every night while on vacay. We did the SAME thing!

    And dang, I was hoping that we'd get to see a pic of you in your new swimsuit! I'm dying to see your pretty new belly button. That sounds really creepy. Lol.

    And finally I can't wait to link up again soon. I've been trying to recap our vacation so I've missed the last couple of confessions link-ups, and gosh, I've really missed them! I love these posts!

  10. Vacation is for eating pie every night, obviously!

  11. I'm glad you're having a good week! Dessert every night sounds AWESOME!

  12. I know what you mean about the swimsuit. I don't own a lot of showy things, but I'm always more nervous to wear questionable things around my in-laws, haha. I always pack conservatively for those trips!

  13. Can't wait to hear all about your vacation! Enjoy the last few days!
