Time for a fun 'fesh sesh

I confess that I'm not sure what to do about my privacy on Instagram. I've had it private before but I like the non-private setting so I can have the fun feed on my blog. I've had the non-private setting for a while now and suddenly, the creepers liking my stuff has really ramped up. I'm talking the "like me for 1,000 followers" and women with questionable pictures. Do I have any options other than making myself private again? Does anyone else have this problem?

I confess that Stephen replaced our kitchen lights with LED bulbs. I do not like the look of the white LED bulbs... not on houses for Christmas or inside as light fixtures - I think the white light is too harsh and I really like the softer, yellow lights. The kitchen lights are great, they are the perfect soft shade; with those a success, Stephen decided to replace the other bulbs in our house. Unfortunately, he bought the harsh, bright white lights and I felt like I lived in a warehouse. Thankfully he found a different brand and replaced all the white bulbs with the softer ones and I couldn't love it more! He doesn't get on me when I leave a small lamp on in a dark house anymore lol

I confess that I watched Shay Shull on the Today show and thought she did a great job cooking her BLT pasta with Kathy and Hoda. She looks like a natural!

I confess that we FINALLY purchased our Colorado tickets on Tuesday! I'm so glad we finally nailed down a date and can get the ball rolling on our vacation this year. I've also booked our rental car so the next step is where to stay!

I confess that I'm really enjoying our lunch time workouts - it makes the afternoons go by faster, I don't feel bad if I want to relax when I go home, we get out of the office, it wakes me up and I can catch up with my friends! I'm so glad I finally decided to join them, it's been such a good thing!

Linking up with Jessica and Annie.


  1. I have that same problem on IG! If I don't know someone who likes my pictures I'll check out their page and block them if they're sketchy. Not sure that there's another way to do it?!

  2. I'm with you on Instagram. I just decided to stay private since I was getting the same thing: weird creepers and women scantily-clad and just decided if you want to follow me bad enough, you'll request me! (And even then, I sometimes tell people "no"!)

  3. Agree with you on the Instagram weirdness. I always just block users that have sketchy pics if they like my photos. you go girl working out at lunch, I go to the gym every day after work but a lot of days I dreadddd it because it puts me getting home at like 7pm or after, making for SUCH a long day!

  4. Toootally with you about the IG thing. I like it public to make new friends in the Mommy/Home Decor World. Plus it helps bring people over to the blog. Right? However, I sometimes get freaked out that some of these people are going to find me in real life. It.Freaks.Me.Out.

    Have a great day, girl!

    1. Yes exactly!! And if I tag companies, they can't see my stuff if I'm private! I'm going to try the "blocking people" route and see if that helps before going private again

  5. Yay yay yay for booking your Colorado flights!! Summer will be here before we know it! I totally missed Shay on the Today Show this week - need to go watch it now!

  6. Yeah, I thought Shay did well. It probably threw her off when KAthie Lee didn't want to help and hats off to you with the lunch time workouts!

  7. Congrats on taking the first steps to taking a vacation. And Colorado is so much fun! I love my lunch time workouts as well. Such a great feeling after you are done. Hope you have a great weekend!
