Friday Confessional 7.15.16
Good morning, lovelies!
I’d like to know how it’s Friday again already? This summer is flying by just too fast. Last week, I cancelled Friday Confessional because with all that was happening in Dallas and in other parts of the county, I just couldn’t.
Now it’s time to start the weekend with a clean slate by sharing all the dirty, little secrets. Also, this post may contain affiliate links. Thanks for your support of my blog.
Last weekend was spent at my parents’ house. They’re moving soon, and I volunteered to help them over the weekend with the moving sale as well as getting the house clean for the realtor’s open house.
You don’t realize how much work tasks like that are until you get started. I’ll say that I surprised myself with my ability to lift and move heavy objects, and I am definitely in the right career path in sales. Also, selling items at a yard sale is much easier than selling insurance (though not as lucrative).
Today is National Ice Cream Day. I had no idea when I created this week’s Wino Wednesday post; I just knew that I like ice cream and wine.
I’d really like to make some ice cream this weekend. There’s a recipe in the Lee Bros. Southen Cookbook, which we received years ago as a wedding gift, for buttermilk peach ice cream that I’m dying to try.
Next week, I’m headed to Chicago for a martial arts clinic. I’m trying to get all the practice in that I can before my black belt exam in October. There’s still so much to do to get ready for this exam, and I’m starting to feel a little overwhelmed.
This is me with two of the professors in our system from our clinic last fall. I love the opportunity to train with friends from all over the country.
I’m driving to the clinic, which is a 12-13 hour drive. And I need some tunes for the road. Please share your road trip music essentials in the comments.
Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You’ll feel better when you’re finished.
