Weekly Challenge: 10 Things I Will Not Apologize For

There are certain horrific things I do that I will never stop doing and I just cannot help it. I think it’s time to fess up and I would love for you to do the same. Here are 10 things I will not apologize for.


My daily love affair with Maury Povich.

Yes, I still watch it. Yes, I’m an adult. Yes, I watch both episodes back to back. 

The way I order my Starbucks drink.

The fact that I’m a little over-protective when it comes to my kids. 


I’m a little manic. This doesn’t really affect you because I’m pretty edited on the blog — this one is really for my husband. 



The fact that I can’t stop reading J.R. Ward novels. 


I sort of joke around about it but deep down inside maybe I believe that the zombie apocalypse  is real.

I take my children to Disney at least once a year. Yes, I said at least. There have been occasions where we’ve gone twice – like this year.

If there is a camera pointed at me… odds are I’m going to do something out of the ordinary. Like ask my friend with the ax to pretend to kill me. “Hey Jeff, pretend to kill me for the pic.”



I coupon for beauty products at CVS every Sunday.



I will always (always) be able to justify a shoe/bag purchase in my mind.
