It’s Sunday and that means it’s time for another one of my favorite posts – Sunday Confessions.

-A few weeks ago one of our patients heard me say something about living in Southern California and asked if that’s where I’m from.  Apparently I lost enough of my Chicago accent and picked up a few SoCal-isms to sound like it…While I understand it wasn’t meant to offend me, but I was not okay with that.

-Speaking of work, a few weeks ago the weather was absolutely gorgeous and a patient called to reschedule her daughter’s appointment.  She apologized profusely but said she just couldn’t get her daughter off the swings at the park.  It was a BEAUTIFUL day outside – warmer than it’s been and the sun was shining brightly.  That burst of Vitamin D was probably just as good for her daughter that day as her adjustment would have been.  Besides, if I were the little girl, I wouldn’t want to get off the swings either.

Don't judge me... ;)

-I’m totally the girl that wore makeup to run her half marathon.  I kept it light with a little concealer, powder and mascara but I wanted to look good when I crossed the finish line.  Judge me if you’d like.

-I decided to forgo girls night with the ladies from the office Friday night. It was a long week and after an extra long Thursday, I knew the only thing I wanted to do Friday was go home, put on pjs and relax. So I did and it was glorious.

-Speaking of Friday night, I also did yoga for the first time in weeks. I was surprised how easily I was able to relax, be present and boy was it a beautiful thing.

-This may not be so much of a confession, but I’m more than ready to move back out of my parents house again. I’m so grateful for them allowing me to come back for the last few several months but I miss having my own space and my life not half in boxes. With that said, I’m waiting on a few important details before I can start the search…that’s easier said than done.

 

What do you have to confess today?

    I kind of love that she canceled the appointment so her daughter could swing. Actually, not just kind of. I LOVE that.

    The fact that I all too often decide I want to go home on a Friday night with a cup of tea, a book, and my pajamas could, perhaps be the reason I am 28 and single. But part of me doesn’t really care.

    YOOOOOGAAAAA! [Loving it.]

      Right?! I want to be that kid! In fact today as the weather was absolutely beautiful, I really wanted to be the kid on a swing. I had a moment of wishing there was a kid I could take to the park and therefore hop on a swing myself!

      P.S. I’m 26 and single and was in bed by 9 on Friday night and will be tonight too…hah!

    I will not go ANYWHERE without mascara at the least so you’ll get absolutely no judgement from me! And seriously, I saw some kids swinging the other day and I’m telling you right now, if I could bend BOTH my knees in the required fashion, I would have been right there with em!

    Confession: I went MIA from the blog yesterday…and I don’t feel the least bit bad about it! 😉 Call me the Pancake Rebel! Lol

      I use YogaDownload podcasts. They have varying lengths and prices (most 20 min podcasts are FREE) and include PDF pose guides. But seriously, when I get into the groove of ending my night with a 20 min yoga podcast, I’m in a MUCH better place!

    My confession from this past week.
    Eating 3 cupcakes.
    1 normal size and 2 minis
    They were just so awesome I tell ya.
    Awesome.
    I blame my boyfriend.
    He made me go to the cupcake shops.
    Made me.
    Forced.
    Against my loving will.
    Mmmmmm cupcakes.

      Those darn boys! 😉 But seriously, it’s okay. Cupcakes are delicious and should be enjoyed from time to time.

    I spent a summer when I was in college living in the Florida Keys and almost everyone could tell I was from California by the way I talked. So funny because I didn’t think Californians had an accent but apparently we have a way of talking that stands out. Who knew! I always wear a little make up to my races. You never know what picture will be snapped or where it will be posted!

      I guess looking back, I usually do too – at least a little bit. This just felt so different because it was a HUGE race for ME and I wanted to look my best, even if I had moments of not feeling my best.

    What a cute story – a mom not being able to get her daughter off the swings. Makes me want to find some swings to play on today!

    My confession is.. well I can’t think of one because I can’t really think of anything other than the fact that I stood 2 feet away from Bill Murray last night. I guess that’s my confession?

    Happy Sunday! 🙂
