Confession giveaway

**This Giveaway is Now Closed. Thanks!**

Confession time: Despite being a great source of information on when to put up Fall decorations, I haven't put mine up.

I can't find them.
I can't find my fall decorations!
Seriously.
Am I a dork, or what?
I know they're in a box in the basement. But every time I've looked all I find are boxes marked "Christmas decs".

Plus there are crickets down there.
Big black crunchy jumpy ones.
I'm terrified of crickets!!
I got a shiver just typing about them.

So I'm thinking I'm just going to skip the fall decorations this year and put up Christmas stuff next week.
What? It'll be November!

So since Christmas is on my mind more and more, I've been making Christmas jewelry.
And I want to give one away. To YOU!


What I love about this necklace is that it can be interpreted in so many different ways.
At Christmas, I believe in Santa.
Year round, I believe in God.
To someone going through a difficult time, they may just believe that they'll survive!
It can mean whatever you want it to mean.

So, do you want to win?

1. Leave a comment with a confession. Hey! I confessed two things to you! I can't find my decorations, and my fear of crickets.
2. If you want to blog, tweet, facebook, etc. about it, leave a seperate comment for those and each entry will count.

I'll choose a winner through the random number generator on Saturday.

Kelly said...

My confession...I have so been abusing the fact that my husband is home. I have been sleeping in on a more than regular basis wile he takes care of our daughter.

Jen L. said...

That necklace is beautiful! Ok, here's my confession: When my husband left for work, I was like "Yeah, we're about to get dressed and go grocery shopping." Instead, my son and I are watching Jungle Junction in our PJs and eating tater tots for breakfast. :)

Daniela said...

my confession? I only bake for my family/get together's because of the compliments and attention. I don't even like to bake for other people.

My Confession: During lunch, I've started putting my daughter in her highchair in front of the tv, so I can get some sewing done. Shhhhh.

Jaime said...

Confession: I am terrified of bees. I will scream like a little girl! I am truly a dork. :)

Whimsical Creations said...

confession-
I was at Toy's R Us at 9am this morning when they opened with coupon in hand to buy the new Tinkerbell Movie...I'm a dork.

another confession- I didn't decorate my christmas tree last year. It was up with no decorations...shhhh...

Love the Decor! said...

I keep a very clean house but my bedroom always looks like a a bomb went off in it :)

Sara said...

I have a confession.
I bought my daughter tickets to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live!...and am EXCITED about seeing it!
(dork!)

Shorty said...

My confessions? So glad you asked! I have a disgusting habit of picking my cuticles, and sometimes even the skin on the bottom of my fingers when its dry. It's gross but I can't stop! I also must confess that I'm afraid of a coworker. He's one of those overly introverted types who seems as if he go postal at any time. I've been praying about it (and for him) but I keep thinking he might make the news one day.

Thanks for the opportunity to win one of your gorgeous necklaces!!!

Michelle said...

Believe is one of my favorite mottos. And I am deathly afraid of the dark and something under the bed -still as an adult. Nothing paralyzes me with fear like the dark and I sleep in a waterbed still so nothing can be under it.

Pam G said...

I confess that some days I forget what it is I believe in.... maybe this beautiful necklace would help remind me! Pam

Martha said...

Oh Becki! I just LOVE it....you know...I haven't put of any fall decorations excepts some gourds from a pumpkin patch...although mine is not because I can't find them:)....I'm right there with you about Christmas...it's my fav!

Just love that necklace...one of my all-time fav Christmas movies is: Miracle on 34th street...LOVE IT!

Scott, Joanna, Matthew said...

My Confession: I would rather read blogs or a magazine instead of cleaning the house (or doing laundry). Then just before my husband comes home I cram in as much cleaning as I can so he doesn't think that I don't do anything all day. Hehehe!

Polka Dot Moon said...

Okay.....if I have to tell you......

I will put wee one in the high chair with an activity so that Jackson and I can play Lego Star Wars on the Wii. I'm addicted to that game (and very competitive!!)

Don't tell hubby!
Denise

I LOVE the necklace; all your work is fabulous!!!

Heather said...

well... i woke up with a sore throat, so i kept the kids home from school cause i didn't feel like getting up to drive.

Anonymous said...

My son is sleeping in the car in the driveway (as I type this). It just seems so much easier to leave him than attempt to transfer him up to his crib.

and I can't remember my google password...

I love love this necklace. Pearls to me are better than diamonds.
My confession to you is this, my husband has been home for 3 weeks now unemployeed and I have been hiding the fact that I am a train wreck over this to the point that I have a huge lump on my throat and I have told him is b/c I have a bad sore throat. I would love this necklace b/c I have to BELIEVE that God will get us thru this valley soon, and it would just a reminder for me as I wear it. I pray I win. Hugs and thanks~ g.e.harper55@gmail.com I too forgot my password. Esther

SGreen said...

Okay my confession...last year we didn't even put up a Christmas tree!! Only decorations were the wreath on the door and stockings on the wall!! I am aiming to do so much better this year!!

Pfeiffer Photos said...

Hey Beki...love your, "what? It'll be November!" hahaha! Your kids will love having the holiday decor up early. :)

Confession: I cried when I dropped my Italian 101 course this term. I felt like an idiot, a quitter and just beat myself up good for a day over it. The only other person that knows about this is my dear husband. Well...and, now, you do, too. oxo

Scott, Joanna, Matthew said...

I blogged about your giveaway at http://afamilyoflove.blogspot.com

Jessica said...

Crickets...love the sound they make but crunchy *yuck* Confession #1: Slightly germophobic. My 16 mth old son already knows to put his hands out when Mommy pulls out the wipes and sanitizer.
Confession #2: Hate throwing up but I married a man that throws up all the time, even when he gets a cold. I pray that my children do not inherit that...ick!!!

Erica said...

confession: on mornings when i am extra tired i put my baby in the swing, turn a cartoon on for my toddler, and "sleep" on the couch.


confession: i just bought my first pair of new shoes in 3 years, and it was only because my feet were so swollen during my pregnancy last winter that i busted through my shoes & then cannot be worn anymore.

i think we should get one entry per confession :) LOL

Bailey said...

Confession: I haven't done much housecleaning at all lately. Crafting just sounds (and IS) much more exciting.

Team Alix said...

I confess that even though pumpkins are our "thing" and we have a bazillion of them(we got married in November with a pompkin theme) I haven't decorated for fall at all. Not even a little bit. I guess I'm waiting it out for Christmas with you!

robyn said...

I'm a frugal mom and wife, but I still buy the $4.00 Starbuck lattes at least once a week!

Sherry said...

My confession: I'm at work and catching up on blogs :)

Trasie Bressler said...

Today I didn't want to hang my husbands dress shirts and pants up that were in the dryer.....So I put them back in the washer and started it again. As if that wasn't bad enough I came upstairs, to unload the dishwasher and didn't want to do that either so stuck a couple of dirty dishes in it and started the entire load back over............Why do it today when you can do it tomorrow.....:)

Hope you have a great day and I say good for you for skipping the fall decorations and heading straight for the Christmas ones.....I love it!

Diana said...

Confession for today... it is 1:30 pm and my 3 year old is still in his pajamas... plus I took him that way to the grocery store this morning!!

Miranda's Minutes said...

I have yet to paint my living room or my kitchen with the 2nd coat of paint because I hate painting the 2nd coat. The change is already done and I'd like to just forget about it!

Vanessa said...

Confession.. I am super afraid of heights.. so much so that even being on the second floor of the hotel freaked me out for a bit! Another one.. I am putting up my Christmas tree.. its in my bedroom so no one will know but me and hubby.. so its a private tree ha ha! Love this necklace!!

Vanessa said...

country girl turns country said...

I need to Believe... so I confess I named my son Chance because he was my last chance for a girl and i cried it was another boy. (Note: I do love my boys but longed for a girl). Two: I read blogs while at work. Need something to get thru the day

Kari J said...

One confession - I HATE to clean the kitchen! I don't know why it's so hard for me to do but I just can't help it, thing will sit for day until I just can't take it anymore and I finally make myself do it! UGGG!! :)

Thanks for the great give away, I love the Belive necklace!

Kari J said...

I tweeted @kj1982!

Jenny said...

Love the necklace! Ok, confession: On Sunday mornings when it is my husband's day to sleep in,(mine is Saturday) I fall back asleep on the couch while the kids are watching cartoons. So, I guess I still get to sleep in on both days of the weekends. =)

Kari J said...

Now I've blogged about it ;)

Heather M said...

Confession, the thing I'm scared of Most in this world are those Stink Bug things, You know the ones that smell like grass when killed.
When I was a kid one flew into me and I smelled like that for DAYS. And it was SCARY. Now whenever I see one I have a panic attack, My palms get sweaty, I shake and my Heart RACES!!! Creepy I know!

The Boccias said...

Confession: We have lots of pop in our garage. I was craving some yesterday but was too afraid to go stick my hand in one of the boxes to get a can of pop because my husband told me he saw a mouse in our garage the other day. I just went to Sonic instead. Mice...shudder.

Renanda said...

Love the necklace!
Confession: I told my husband that we are decorating for Christmas this weekend! The biggest reason- We really need to clean and it will motiviate us. Plus, I am excited to see my new tree I bought after season last year.
Confession: I'm at work right now

Renanda said...

I blogged!
See it HERE
Thanks for the giveaway!

Sara said...

I blogged you, too!

koopermom said...

My confession: We painted pumpkins this year instead of carving them. I said it was because it was too cold to do it outside, but really it was because I didn't want to gut them at all - inside or outside!!

r- m val said...

confession: i have a mild (sometimes not so mild) form of OCD! one that i often deny to my husband. let's just say that my SIL is due with her first baby anyday now and we live 45 min away. i have OUR bags packed, snacks, games, cards, crossword puzzles, camera's etc. yea, i'm not the one having the baby and i'll be bringing more to the hospital than she will. :)

Beth said...

At least you have fall decorations! I'm too lazy (and busy) to decorate for seasons. I do well to decorate for Christmas!

I confess that if I could eat out every night, I would. Just so I wouldn't have to wash dishes.

Susy M. said...

I confess that I am not putting any decorations this year. My grandmother recently passed away and she loved Christmas. I can't even begin to put stuff up.

Rebekah said...

Ha - that's why I store my decorations in the attic and my husband's closet ;)

Confession: I thought I would be super-smart and buy candy ahead of time for Halloween and hide it away from the kids... then hubby & I got a chocolate craving, and have almost finished it already!

Renanda said...

Aww, Susy M.- if you think of it differently it might help. Think of it as doing it to honor your grandmother. It's hard to loose a loved one. Maybe you will not be ready this year, but I hope that you will see it as an honor to her.

Ruth said...

confession: i went to work with epic VPL and had to do that horrible thing where you pull your knickers into a kind of thong situation to try and hide how obvious they were... mega uncomfortable, mega embarrassing to admit and totally deserving of a beautiful necklace ;)

YAY CHRISTMAS!!!

Jody said...

I have to confess that I don't even own any fall decorations. Does that make you feel any better.☺

Sarah said...

I put a movie in for my girls so I can blog surf.

itsfromarizona said...

Do we get extra entries for extra confessions? If so I could go on for days!

I confess...
that more often than not, I forget about clothes and leave them in the washer until they're almost dry. Not to mention that they get stinky!
...I know, I'm horrible.

I will be tweeting about this giveaway!

Thanks for entering me, super cute necklace btw, I want it!

itsfromarizona said...

LOL I have another confession...

I went back through and read mostly everyone's comments to GET IDEAS! And I think Trasie Bressler's is best. I seriously laughed out loud because I'll probably start doing that!

This is such a fun way to do a giveaway Beki!

slb3334 said...

I confess I hate my job to the point I have called in sick simply because I didn't want to go.

jennifer said...

Confession...I let my kids have mini marshmallows in the car for breakfast yesterday. I know that sounds nuts...but they had the BEST time!

jodilee0123 said...

While picking out pumpkins at the grocery store trick or treat festival on Saturday. . . I took my eyes off of my 14 month old daughter in the grocery cart for 10 seconds (if even that--and if you know me--I am Mrs. hawk eyes with my children) and she started rolling down into the parking lot when the dude dressed up like a milk carton or something like that just happened to step outside because he was so hot in the store was in the right place at the right time and saved my daughter from potentially tipping over in the grocery cart--or even worse--possibly getting hit by a car. God was watching over us for sure! I am still so distraught over it that I can't even remember what the guy was dressed up as. I gave him a million hugs and thanked him over and over. What a blessing! Phew! Scary moment for sure!

Anonymous said...

Confessions-
1. I HATE black crickets and when I see them downstairs I spray the crud out of them with bug killer.
2. I have a secret desk drawer at school where I keep my chocolate stash.
3. Sometimes at bedtime I fake being asleep so my daughter will go to sleep quicker.

Wendy said...

Well of course I want to win! Duh!

Okay, let's see here... Confessions...

1. Even though you aren't supposed to, I love cleaning my ears with q-tips. Just love the feeling of it. Yeah, I'm weird.

2. I'm thinking of sending my first children's story in to try to get published. Scared to death about it, but there it is. Now that I've said it, I guess I'll have to do it.

scrapmin said...

Hmmm... which confession should I disclose? OK, have to say that I'm not super fond of Halloween. Love fall and decorating for fall but not so big on the Halloween stuff (ok, except for the chocolate - that I like!). Our kids are teenagers now & my dh just said yesterday - I hate to admit this but I'm glad we're past the dressing the kids up in costume stage. I sheepishly agreed with him!

Elizabeth @ TexasEbeth said...

confessions - i hate dusting. we have wood floors so dust bunnies are very visible. Actually I have dust Godzillas everywhere. There are layers of dust on everything. I keep the dimmer switch on when company comes to help hide it. Eventually I do dust the furniture and dust mop the floors. I don't think my son even knows what a vacuum cleaner is. *sigh*

Suzy Q said...

we are having take out tonight because I don't feel like cooking!

Digital Misfit said...

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

A confession??
I like stale popcorn.
Yes, that's right. I make it and will not eat it until the next day.

There's your confession.

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

Another confession....

Today I shoved a whole zebra cake in my mouth as soon as I heard the kids coming.

CAKE? WHAT CAKE?

Oh, and I tweeted this on the ole twitter.
(That's for my second entry.)

LuLu said...

Confession, the only fall decor is outside.... mums, pansies, pumpkins and corn stalks.... yep that's it... and i know where my fall decor is i just don't have the energy to put it out! I want to just skip to Christmas.
and i have another one... my sweet 4 year old still doesn't have a Halloween costume... shocking i know, i can't find the costume he wants anywhere so now i have to make it. I feel so terrible.. now shhhh don't tell anyone! :)

LuLu

blabla3269 said...

most of my sons sick days are because I am to lazy to get up

TX_Jen34 said...

I bought a "sexy"(not super sexy) costume and I'm afraid to wear because I've gained so much weight. I haven't told anyone that.

GrammaGrits said...

I hate, hate, hate to dust! Oh, the necklace is lovely.

Jesse said...

Girl, I am with you. I could totally put up my Christmas decorations. I did that several years ago. When I first got married and had no decorations. Yep I had my Christmas tree up at Halloween. Still get teased for it.

Spadazzle said...

Totally behind and the Halloween costume isn't even ready yet...... we haven't made anything Halloween yet..... although we have in my English Classes but not in our house.....

rentz said...

My confession? After the kids are in bed I sometimes get on their webkinz accounts and play games. Try it. You might get hooked. In fact, I'm pretty sure you will.

And the necklace is terribly cute.

jennifer said...

Why yes, I think you should give that necklace to me. That is a great idea! (come on random number thingy)

OK, confession time... I am listening for my husband to start snoring. When I hear him sawing logs I am going to the kitchen and making myself a piece of peanut butter marshmallow toast. It won't be long... :)

ArtSnark said...

Ha ha - I'm with Jennifer - though I'm going after tonight's chicken now that I'm blog hopping & DH is snoring

And I said "I'll be right there, dear" over an hour ago...

Christina said...

Oh dear, I forgot about my 2 year old's co-op party for fall which is tomorrow, and she needs a costume, and when I went to get one today (or look) I hated everything I saw...I really don't want to go to the party since I know it's at a house where the whole family was just sick (it's been days, but I am SUPER PARANOID...I also forgot until just two minutes ago that the conference with my son's teacher is tomorrow afternoon. I didn't put it on the calendar, nor did I tell my husband. He is not going to be happy about that. Eek. Now I'm in a pickle. Aren't you glad you asked?!

Dispatcher_kristy said...

Confession--- I have a major crush on this guy at work but I have to keep it to myself because neither of us are available

dispatcher_kristy@hotmail.com

sweepmom said...

With only three days till Halloween and 2 days till my son's school halloween party, I have yet to make his costume.

jacjewelry said...

I HATE packing. I hate unpacking even more. My confession is that it took me nearly TWO weeks to unpack after I returned from a recent trip! Thanks for the giveaway. The necklace is beautiful!

Debbie Rhodes said...

My youngest daughter believed in herself and has landed her dream job of being a police officer she will start training in December.

Frogs. Frogs *freak me out*!!

Mary B said...

My kids do not have Halloween costumes yet and secretly I don't want to even participate this year. Call me a scrooge, life has just been too busy!

beckyjomama said...

I am afraid of birds.

And, I'm talkin hide-under-the-table afraid.

Jodi (mrshattery@yahoo.com) said...

Sometimes I take a nap when kids are at school when I should be doing laundry or cleaning.

I am completely terrified of ferris wheels. That little itty bitty cotterpin keeping me up in the sky - eeek!

Yesterday I was so tired when the alarm went off I called the kids in sick and went back to bed.

This past week I did not finish one of my seven workouts.

I lust about Barak Obama.

Even worse, I use to have a huge crush on David Letterman. to give you an idea of the ick factor here, I've yet to reach 30. Recent events made me hugely jealous of the interns.

I don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

Opening my own studio has been much more work and stress than I ever anticipated. Every month I struggle.

Sometimes I want to run away.

I have no idea what I'm doing. Ever.

I'm the female peter pan. I've yet to grow up.

I have a long standing record of freaking out on the verge of mass success and folding to the pressure.

I spend too much money. I love spending money.

I don't wear panties.

- Jodi (Mrshattery@yahoo.com)

Heather said...

My confesstion: I can't make pumpkin pie from scratch. I've tried several times, it never sets right. This time of year is torture for me, as you may know, since I'm proud of my domestic abilities!

Shhh, don't tell anyone...but....I have resorted to a frozen Mrs. Smith's. Good thing I too, am Mrs. Smith!! :)

THANKS SO MUCH!!

PBJ*Boutique ~ Brittni said...

My confession?

I will NOT let my children be in the car when my FIL is driving. He fell asleep behind the wheel once, and almost killed us all (my daughter was just over a year old, and I was pregnant with my son). He denies it to this day, but I conveniently come up with any excuse to meet them places instead of letting him drive.

I will not tell my hubby, because he thinks I'm paranoid as it is.

Sarah said...

I am a stay-at-home mom. I don't get out of bed until my 3 yr. old comes and wakes me up.

Adrian said...

My confession
I wait till the end of the day (3:30-5:00) to pick up my house. If I do it before then it will just get destroyed again by the kids.
I also call my husband each day around 11:00 to make sure if he is going to come home for lunch. If he is, I do a quick sweep of the house to make sure he thinks I've done some thing that morning.
Yeah, I won't be blogging this as he reads my blog and facebook page. Got to keep some secrets quiet :)

Happy Banyan said...

Here are my confession: I've been cooking terrible dinners lately b/c I've been spending so much time on my shop.

Happy Banyan said...

And here's my blog: www.happybanyan.blogspot.com.

Polka Dot Moon said...

Had to tell another one......

I wait until the last minute to p/u the house, run around like a mad woman right before hubs comes home. Too much time on the Wii and blog hopping!
shhhh.....don't tell!

Cutest mental picture for you today- your son dancing with his arm around a girl and the hands held out in front them out at recess. Then, realizing what he was doing running away from the girls and screaming! ha ha ha ha ha!

Confession?
My boobs hang too low.

Meredith said...

Confession: I love, love, love having a twin sister but at the same time, it brings twice the worry to my life. When she isn't happy, there is just no possible way that I can be.

creative.chaos said...

I confess that I enjoy staying up till 2 or 3 in the morning to get my work done while everyone is sleeping because I feel so much more productive without distractions. (And I confess I feel like such a bad mom even saying I get more work done while my son is sleeping!)

creative.chaos said...

I linked to this post on facebook! This necklace would make such a great gift for my mom. She believes in angels (You should see her house, they're everywhere!) That's what I thought of as soon as I saw it!

Jeanneoli said...

A confession..huh??? Ok...I am still in my pjs and it is almost two. I haven't worked out in a month and I seriously think my butt is expanding as I write this:-)

Hmm. Like many of the other post-ers, I like to stay in my pjs as long as possible, and have also contemplated leaving the house in them (sweatshirt and flannel bottoms).

What a beautiful giveaway! Thank you!

Copper Leaf Studios said...

Confession: I hate to cook. So much that I will avoid it completely if I'm the only one home. Which is fine, except I keep forgetting which days my dd has practice at school. We've had canned soup and toast for the past two days straight because the durned kid keeps coming home!

elaine said...

I have a deathly fear of mice-to the point of going into hysterics if I see one!

Marlene W. said...

I ate three fun-size candy bars from the Halloween stash after telling my husband to stay away from the Halloween candy.
Because the candy is for the children.
Not for us.
And I ate some tonight while he was gone at work.
Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

Krista said...

Confession: I don't balance my checkbook. (I check my balance daily online, but I just don't write everything down)

ezmerelda said...

I confess that I purposely buy candy/food that I know my husband doesn't like, just so there is more for me.

I also confess that when I take cookies to work they are Pillsbury, not really homemade. Hey, they are still homebaked, right?

Carrie said...

My biggest secret is that while I tell my family to eat their vegetables so they'll stay healthy, I don't even like the look of them.

I confess that sometimes I HATE being a nurse. The stress is through the roof and sometimes I just barely make it through the night and then I cry all the way home so I don't take it inside the house at night. My husband and the cats don't deserve that.

kdkdkd said...

I confess I am scared of crickets too- all insects really. And I am passing my irrational fear onto my youngest who now screams at the sight of a bug - sigh :(

emtdlb said...

We have these big crunchy brown crickets with legs twice the size of their bodies. They look prehistoric or something and really creep me out. And I can't stand cockroaches. They just make me want to scream and run. Love the necklace. Thanks for the chance!!!!

Confession: I'm a shopaholic. I cannot help but to buy things. Especially if I have a coupon or they are on sale. I also am a serial returner. Once I get all these purchases home and get my credit card bills I start taking stuff back that has tags on it. I only shop at stores with lenient return policies and trust me they know who I am! Ack, how embarrassing!

Sugar Hiccups said...

Wow! Okay, what to confess... I confess that I still would love to have pink hair if I could get away with it, and I would still wear my cute plaid skirts if I was that small again! LOL I also confess that although I am not scared, I absolutely hate scorpions! *shutters* uuuugggghhh! I think your necklace is beautiful, and I love the word "believe". It says so much without saying a lot. Good luck to everyone! Have a great day!

Just started following your blog after finding your etsy site. I love everything! My confession, my 3 year old and I watch way to much TV while the rest of the family is gone at school and work. Please don't tell my husband :-).

Gail said...

April Alcorn said...

Confession :I didn't tell my four year old she missed her PreK Halloween Party because of a virus in our house :( The teacher did gather a goodie bag for her though!!! But I still feel like a heel!!

merlin said...

Wow, asking for a confession is a pretty big price.....but worth it if I win.
I'll confess to eating the halloween candy and having to replace it so no one would know :)

Pam said...

So funny about your decorations! My husband and I both grew up in the north - then spent 9 years living in FL after we married. That was enough. (Plus, it never quite felt like Christmas down there.) So, we packed up and went 'home'. We were so excited when the first cold snap hit our first year back that we went ahead and put up our Christmas decorations. That was mid-October! The next year we were slighty better - but they were still up quite a bit before Thanksgiving. We're back to normal now. We put up our Christmas decorations the weekend after Thanksgiving.

I have been cheating on my diet. But that is not my confession. My confession is that I don't feel particularly guilty about it.

Hi,

So nice to meet you!! Your jewerly is beautiful.

I read your comment on another ladies blog and you said you were a flight attendant.

My son is a patient at St. Jude and he is a cancer survivor!

Let's see, my confessions;

Although God has done great and mighty things for us, I still stuggle with unbelief. Knowing this breaks the heart of God.

I spend too much time on FB!!!

Bless you for doing this♥

my confession is I have a crush on my daughter's teacher! He's so FINE!

gina said...

My husband bought two huge bags of candy at Sam's Club last week. He made me swear I WOULD NOT OPEN them until Halloween... I promised. Then I was home ALL WEEK with 2 sick kids- and PMSing. with no chocolate in the house. I didn't open the bags. Nope. I SLIT a tiny 1 inch slit on the underside seam of each bage and slid the candy out (i struggled a bit) one piece at a time- puffing the bags back up with air. Yup, i did.

I tweeted about it @

Brooke said...

My confession... Sometimes I fake being extra sleepy (okay maybe I don't have to fake it) on the weekend so that Hubby will take both kids for a few hours... I need the sleep and I always tell him it's so he can have more time with them... muhaaaaa

Moochie's Mom said...

When my little one goes to sleep, and hubby is still at work I sit on the computer for hours on end.
