Totally Truthful Thursday

1. For the past few days, I have been somewhat allergic to the gym. Meaning, when I think about it, my body starts hurting and I decide it’s better to just stay in bed until 6:30.

2. We recently went antiquing, and Cory was reminded of why we can’t have nice things or go nice places (read: I love any that is inappropriate.)

3. I know it’s kind of early, but I am in desperate need for some creative ideas for a Halloween costume. I’m not above being festive and slutting it up, but I normally feel awkward when I’m half naked in public/like an idiot when I say “I’m a cat! Get it? I have on a leotard, heels, and kitty headband!”Β 

4. THIS article made me LOL.

5. Cory and I are currently binge-watching Orange is the New Black. I wasn’t hooked by the first episode, but now that we’re a few deep, I’m obsessed. I love/hate that at the end of each episode, I’m like, Okay – just one more.Β 



6. I’ve not yet run to my local Starbucks for my beloved PSL – and it’s been super difficult. It need it to be cooler. I need to be wearing boots. It needs to feel like fall. I am so weird.

7. My parents looked so good this past weekend!

8. My current life struggle: On Fridays, I LOVE Fridays…

…On Saturdays, I HATE Fridays.

Cory was away a few weekends ago. This was my response to “how was ladies’ night?”

9. I’m in this phase of life where I’m really okay with myself. And it feel awesome.

If you remember this post from last year, you know it’s something I’ve been battling with for a while. Little situations recently have reminded me of how proud of myself I am. It feels good to feel good! πŸ˜‰

10. This makes me laugh every.single.time I see it.

    Reason #1000 why we are the same person – I REFUSE to order a PSL latte. It’s far too early. I’m still wearing flip flops, and shorts, and using the AC. Once I can break out the boots and scarves and maybe once the leaves start changing, I’ll be ok with ordering my favorite drink of the year!

  2. says

    Yay for #9! That’s great. As for Fridays… ha. Though I miss a few crazy Fridays, I can’t say I miss any of those Saturday mornings now that I’m preggers.

  3. says

    Doesn’t it feel great to feel at peace with yourself? Just that feeling of contentment, you know? It’s a great feeling for sure. I’ll have to keep watching Orange is the New Black. I got through the first episode, and didn’t get hooked, but you give me hope. πŸ˜‰

      It does feel so good! And yes, try to get past the first episode. As they go on, you find out why each of the characters are in prison, so it’s interesting!

    #4…HA! I have short hair (which I must say is FABULOUS πŸ˜‰ ) and my personal favorite is “You know you are a girl, right?”. This from my mother no less!

    • Colleen says

      YES! It’s a good show! It’s the THE BEST SHOW EVERRRR but it’s clever and I laugh every episode. Regardless, I’m obsessed and need to see how the season ends.

    I love the alpaca! Orange is the new black is the same for me I love it then I’m not into in BUT I have to see the next episode. I had the first hangover in forever this weekend… it’s never a bad idea at night, it’s the morning that gets you!

  6. says

    I love alpacas! <3 And #1 is exactly what I'm thinking these days, haha. Especially since it's cooled down so much, makes me not want to get out of bed.

  7. says

    I waited until September hit – August was too early! And so far, it has just been an iced pumpkin chai from Caribou Coffee! =) I want fall weather before I get my mocha or latte hot! I can’t wait until I’m in that place to be awesome with myself…hoping it comes soon!

  8. says

    I am the SAME way about the whole PSL debacle. Everyone is telling me to get it iced since it’s so hot out, but just no. It has to be hot for at least my first one of the season. I share the same weirdness πŸ˜‰

  9. says

    I love love love this post, and I’m so glad you’re back to blogging! I’ve missed your sense of humor in my day-to-day. I’m so glad you’re feeling so at home being Colleen. After all, you’re the best Colleen Nichols I know! πŸ˜‰

    #3–You TOTALLY need to dress up like Miley Cyrus at the awards show … you did say you weren’t against going half-naked (or something like that). Plus, it’d be HILARIOUS! Your hubby can be one of those creepy teddy bears. LOL!
