Confessions and Thoughts on Thursday

I am in Mississippi right now, but I still managed to get my post ready in time. And on my ipad.

/ that I am thinking of changing Confessional Thursday to Thoughts on Thursday.

/ I got to sleep and sleep in all week!

/ that I missed my girls. Even though I slept so much better this week, I missed seeing their beautiful faces, getting sweet kisses from them and hearing them call me mommy. Even if it is 20 times in a row.

/ I can't wait to drive to New Orleans this afternoon!

/ I can't wait to have Cafe du Monde. Last time I was in New Orleans, I was pregnant with twins and I had beignets for breakfast, dessert and again breakfast the next day. I will only be in New Orleans for one night, but you best bet, I will be grabbing some in the morning before catching my flight home.

/ that Mississippi has some amazing southern food. Love the food here.

/ that every time I think of Mississippi, I always spell out M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I instead of just saying it.

/ that I will be in Mexico in 15 days. Yes I am keeping you all up-to-date on my countdown.

/ that I have already scheduled massages for Rory and I once we are in Mexico.

/ that I am very excited for my husbands foreign work trip. Sure I am not excited about a week alone without him, but when I went to Europe, I bought him a steak dinner when I got back since I had lots of leftover per diem. Remember how I got food poisoning on the plane? Well I said that his next foreign trip, he had to take me to a steak dinner even if he didn't save any money. He agreed and he has one booked in April. Bring on the steak dinner.

/ that we are celebrating Rory's birthday in Mexico (we are there on his birthday) and I will take him out to dinner, but I need birthday gift ideas. It needs to be something I can take on the plane with me though. Suggestions?


  1. I have always wanted to try Cafe Du Monde-enjoy! I would like Thoughts for Thursday..I LOvE confessions but that does open it up for more people to link!

  2. Cafe Du Monde...yum! I've honestly never been to New Orleans, but you cant' think of New Orleans without thinking or knowing about that place. HAve a good time. Yay for Mexico being so close.

  3. Yum to Cafe Du Monde--that makes me salivate just thinking about it :) So exciting to have Mexico right around the corner too!

  4. I do the same thing when I think of Mississippi! I always spell it out in my head haha!

  5. I would love to go to New Orleans - it's on my list!

  6. Is the Cirque show "Kurios" going to be anywhere near you? We just saw that this past weekend and it was FABULOUS! Told my girlfriend about it and she got tickets for her hubby's bday next week!

    1. Oh I wish I would have seen this before and could have checked it out. Thank you for the suggestion.

  7. I think there is already a Thoughts on Thursday link-up. So jealous of your sleep!! Tim was in New Orleans a couple weekends ago. He's been there twice but I've never been. He says he loves the food but hates the city. He's only been there during big events though when it's been super crazy. I'd love to visit NOLA at some point, at least for the food!

  8. Have the best time in New Orleans! It's definitely on my list of places to visit. Massages on vacation are always amazing! We just booked our vac this week and I can't wait for some relaxing. Beautifully Candid

  9. Not that I was jealous of your trip already, but a massage waiting on you? Oh man... so nice!!!!

  10. Enjoy your trip! All you have to do is drive about six hours east and you could visit me! ;o)

  11. Cafe du Monde - YUM! Enjoy every second of your trip and of course sleep. Beautiful sleep <3

  12. Oh my gosh, I always spell out Mississippi in my head. And when someone says it I also spell it out outloud, hahaha. I'm glad I'm not the only one. New Orleans will be a blast. I can't wait to hear about the food. And, those massages sound delightful. You're getting close, yay!

  13. Oh Mississippi and your food, only second to my town, which you are driving to, yay! Drive safe!

  14. Oh how I love Cafe Du Monde! Safe travels!

  15. I wanna go to New Orleans. I'm back to work this week so I'll be back to confessional Thursday! I like the name thoughts on Thursday as well!
