Confession Time

I confess that I'm not sure I get this whole Vine thing.  It's like YouTube but not?   It's like Instagram but not? And I keep hearing things about porn.  What's the point?  I mean, how many more social media outlets do we need?  I think there are already too many as it is.

I confess that I was really excited to reach 200 followers this week.  That's pretty much my benchmark for blogger success and I can blog happily ever after now that I finally reached it.  I officially no longer qualify for the damn Liebster award! 200 is a really nice number to run a giveaway for but since I just did two I'll wait until 250 which may or may not happen....but either way I'll be doing another 'cause they are so much fun.  Thank you to all my wonderful readers.  You are appreciated!

I confess that I got all excited about seeing my face on the cover of a magazine.  So what if it's fake!  It looks sort of real and sometimes we have to take what we can get.  C'mon, you know you want to!  Click here to live out your very own cover girl fantasy.  If you do one I'd love to see it.  Shoot.  I just might do it again!

I confess that I'm terrified to do a legit outfit post.  How do those fashion bloggers and lifestyle/fashion bloggers do it?  Who is taking their picture?  How do they make it look so good even when they use their i phone?  I feel like an idiot when Mj takes my pic and it looks terrible when I try to do it myself.  And this from someone who has been paid to have her picture taken before.  I've got to find that confidence!  I'm slowly working my way up to it.  We'll see how long that takes.
4 lbs of creamy goodness
I confess that I bought a 4 lb tub of Peanut Butter for our family of 2 adults.  I LOVE Peanut Butter and I get anxious when we don't have any in the house.  We love PBJ's and love it on crackers.  So good! Mj is very heavy handed with it on his PBJ's.  It's expensive so I went generic and large because I know this store brand is good.  It was more economical to spend $9.99 on Von's brand then $5 on a small Skippy that we'd run out of next week.

I don't know about you but January felt very looong.  I kept checking my calendar in disbelief that it wasn't February yet.  Well, now it finally is and we have the Super Bowl, Valentines Day and President's Day to look forward to.  Have a great weekend everyone!!

i completely don't get Vine either ... just another thing to help waste time on social media in my opinion.

yay for reaching 200! i have to admit that i was never into giveaways ... i just didn't like the idea of it. but it was so much fun to go out and purchase something just for the thought of getting a "gift" for someone. i think that i'm going to actually try to do a giveaway on my own soon though since i've done the group giveaway twice. but that won't be for a while. maybe when i reach a milestone or something.

you will def. get to 250!

that's a gorgeous picture of you! looks so legit!

ha, i've never done a legit outfit post. i really should. i think i'm going to beg Sean when it gets warm to help me do a legit outfit post. or maybe when one of my sisters come to town i'll beg them to do it. i do the ones you see usually but they are horrible, lol.

i don't like peanut butter. good thing because i know if i did i would be in big trouble.

i love February! :)

have a great weekend!

The Sweetest Thing said...

Y'all! I love vine!!!!!! Kind of - it's a neat concept but Faith is right... I am already overwhlemed with Social MEdia- I barely even get on my Twitter or Facebook.

You are a super model! You need to be on the cover!

Helene said...

omg!!! that is so cool. you look like you could really be on the cover! and I hate the vine, just don't get it! peanut butter is the best thing ever!

The Funky Junkie said...

Congrats on 200!!!!! I strive to be like you. I totally hear ya in feeling weird about outfit posts, even though I do it sometimes I still feel super un-natural and am afraid I just look stupid. Also--you totally got me with that magazine cover! It looks so real!

Martina said...

I actually thought it was a real magazine! lol... You are very pretty....

Also, I've always wondered about the fashion bloggers too.... I've asked myself toooo many times, if these women are real models because they are doing a great job with the pictures, posing, and fashion.

toi said...

your photo on the lucky number... i thought it was real :)

i wonder myself how do the fashion bloggers get it all right and their photos is like straight from a mag.

Brittany said...

I LOVE peanut butter too! I prefer crunchy though :). I eat a pb&j for lunch almost everyday. And you look like you belong on the cover of that magazine...I thought it was real!! You should totally get the hubby to take outfit pictures of you...I would love to see some fashion posts from you, Cece! Have a great weekend pretty lady!

Brittany said...

ps I just grabbed your button :)

Whitney said...

I don't understand Vine either. I got the app this last week to see what all of the hype was about and it just doesn't make much since. But, then again, I still don't understand/like Twitter very much either.

I am glad you are doing another giveaway! I loved doing one and already want to do another one. Maybe I could do one when I get to 200? If I get to 200! That's exciting that you have over 200, I know you will get to 250 and beyond. But, regardless, I'm glad that you enjoy blogging and aren't too caught up in the numbers.

I love that picture of you on the Lucky cover! It could totally pass as real! You are beautiful!

I am the same was about the outfit posts! I want to do one so bad and have even asked Garrett if he would take my picture and he said yes. I just haven't made my self do it yet. You totally should! Just set a date for it and do it!

Ooohh peanut butter! I LOVE it! This sounds gross, but have you ever tried peanut butter and syrup? Like, plain ole waffle syrup? SO good together!

January seemed fast to me! I can't believe it's February already!
Hope you have a great weekend Cece!

Whitney said...

Thanks for being a good blogging friend and helping me fix my no reply problem. I hope this works! : )

Sunny said...

hmm, i've never even heard of vine! you're right tho, there are too many social media outlets for me to keep up with. facebook and instagram are enough for me. :)
congrats on reaching 200 followers, that's awesome!!

Anonymous said...

I don't even know what "vine" is...?

Congrats on reaching 200 followers!

You're love of PB sounds like my love for Nutella :)

Happy Friday!

Ameena said...

I could never do an outfit post...way too self-conscious for that.

200 followers! Great news, congratulations.

I haven't heard of Vine before, not sure why? But I can't sign up for yet one more thing. I can't!!

Have a great weekend.

Law_Fal said...

I've never heard of vine, but I'm slightly technology challenged! You look super pretty like that cover is real! Enjoy your weekend!

Kristin said...

I do outfit pictures by propping my camera on the deck railing. Self-timer is your friend. It's not as difficult as I always imagined it to be!

smk053078 said...

Congrats on reaching 200!! And I have been doing outfit pictures for over a year now and I still feel awkward! That cover of Lucky looks so legit! You are gorg!

Mrs JK said...

I seriously thought the magazine cover was real! U look stunning. Yey on 200.

LWLH said...

I signed up for Vine but haven't posted and to be honest, kind of am annoyed with some peoples videos. Besides the porn, I also don't like that ANYONE can follow you and see your videos. I will most likely be deleting it.

And you are gorgeous girl, that cover does look real and if we lived closer, I'd totally take your pics :)

Yasi said...

4 LBs of PB?!! Love it! <3

Yasi @ Hello, Gorgeous!

Mrs. Pancakes said...

Lol at the 4lbs of That magazine cover is legit lady what are you talking about?! Yes the fashion bloggers...I have no words. But you should try it...would like to see some of your ideas!

Stephanie said...

Oh my goodness...January was never-ending!!! So happy for a shorter month. :) Love the magazine cover and would have thought it was 100% legit had you not said otherwise! You're gorgeous!

Kim Jackson said...

Pretty girl!! Love that cover :-). I haven't looked into Vine because I know I'd be more of a voyeur than a poster. I am just barely starting to feel like my Instagram photos are halfway decent--I will not be doing videos (even 6 second ones) for a long time, if ever. LOL


Janna Renee said...

Congrats on 200! I feel like 200 really is the magic number that means you have longevity and dedication. You go girl! I find it impossible to do outfit posts. I want to do more, but getting the pictures is so hard!!

Jasmine Hellogmsunshine said...

I loved this post - and totally feel you on the fashion blogger thing- i mean really? who follows you all day. I am so confused on how to do that on a regular basis.
