Confessional Friday

Bubbling cheesy Goodness
I confess that up until a few days ago my favorite Lasagna was Lasagna Classico at Olive Garden and not even the one I ate in Rome, Italy could top it.   We had a date night on Wednesday at this cute little restaurant called Alexander's on 30th on recommendation from a friend and armed with a Groupon.  This place is popular because even on a Wednesday night it was packed when we left and now I have a new favorite lasagna.  I was soooo delicious but on top of their delicious garlic bread I could only eat half.  I also confess that I burned a hole in the top of the menu with that candle.  We were wondering what that smell was.

I confess that since it's gotten colder which for us means overnight lows in the 40's and 50's  I've broken out the granny robe to wear around the house.  You know the giant boxy full body covering one with flowers all over it?   Mine is white fleece with blue and lavender flowers.  I've had it for 10 plus years and it's still going strong.  It may not be the sexiest thing ever but it's oh so cozy.  It saves us money too because if I  bundle up enough we don't have to turn our heat on.  Sometimes you literally just need to wear a blanket.  The down comforter keeps us warm over night.

I confess that I didn't go to the gym for a whole week last month.  I blame the time change, colder weather and the holidays.  The problem surely couldn't be me and my lack of motivation.  It's dark and cold when I get off work and the only place I want to go is home to my pajamas so I took a week off.  I got back to it the next week but my motivation is still pretty low.

I confess that when I went to pick up a $112,000 check at work to pay one of our vendors I wished I could switch the name on it to mine.  Oh, the things I could do with that money!  It's not enough to quit your job or anything but I can think of a few splurges I would go for.  There are a few bills that would disappear and it would do wonders for my peace of mind to have it chillin' in the bank.  If only.

I confess that Mj and I watched two seasons of Walking Dead in 7 days on Netflix.  After each episode I could hardly wait to watch the next one.  We watched 5 episodes in one single night! I love horror movies and seeing as it's about zombies it's basically a really long one and I can't believe it took me this long to realize that I should be watching it.  Luckily there was a marathon so now we have season 3 and have already watched 3 episodes of it.

 I confess that sometimes I feel like a shopaholic.  I saw a bloggers wishlist with these shoes on it and within hours I had a pair of Tom's Desert Booties in Taupe on it's way to me from Nordstrom's.  It never even made it onto my wishlist.  I'm so glad I bought 'em though.  I'm not one to run around in high heels every day.  I need comfortable shoes.  The wedge gives me a little height and adds some style, I feel like I'm wearing flats and it fits in with my casual style.

I confess that I love it when friends or co workers come to me for money handling advice.  I've lived a fiscally responsible life since I was a teenager, got my first job and started saving money.  I didn't make a lot of the money mistakes that a lot of people do and although my shopping habit seems to be blooming lately I don't abuse credit, I know my budget, I stick to it, I feed my savings every month and people know this about me.  Not that it happens a lot or anything but it feels good when it does.

  If you are like me then this day was a long time coming.  I had to drag my lifeless body out of bed this morning.  Finally Friday.  Have a great weekend and I'll be back next week with a great giveaway!

When I first saw your lasagna, I thought it was a pizza, which reminded me I have leftover dough in the fridge to make one for lunch. So even though it isn't a pizza, thanks for the reminder! :)

And wouldn't that be nice if we could just write ourselves checks that big?! Haha.

Love the shoes you picked out, too. I don't own any wedges but they do look cute and comfortable. I might be adding a pair to my wishlist!

Hope you have a great weekend!

I love those shoes! There are some at Target that are similar that I almost bought but ended up not. I may go back and snag 'em! How funny that you burned the menu, I laughed out loud at that. I'm glad you found a new favorite lasagna! It sounds delicious! And Walking Dead...who can blame you for watching it so quickly? It's so good! I love horror films as well, so naturally this is one of my favorite shows!

I love lasagna so much! I'm craving some now!

Those booties are adorable!! I tell you blogging makes me shop more, haha. There are just too many good things out there, haha.

As for Walking Dead everyone says it's so good but I'm the biggest scaredy cat so I can't watch!

That lasagne looks like a little gift directly from Jesus himself. I can only imagine how yummy all that bubbly cheese was!

I keep hearing such great things about The Walking Dead! I plan to have a little marathon myself during my holiday vacation. I can't wait to catch up!

I love when people ask me for financial advice too. It's very validating!
