Owning It! {Link Up}

I'm joining forces with my gal pal Elise today as part of her Owning It linkup.  I loved her post yesterday, and feel like sometimes it's best to just lay it all down on the table and own up to things that are less than perfect about you...

So today I'm owning up to...

- Being slightly proudful, it's one of my worst qualities!  It's hard for me to apologize and to admit when I'm wrong.  I'm trying to work on this for sure.  Such a bad quality to have!

- Washing my hair once a week.  That's right!  Gross, but true.  My hair is thick and dry so I can get away with it, and there's nothing I HATE more than spending an hour (or more) of my free mama time blowing out and flat ironing my hair - waste.of.my.precious.time!

- Watching reality shows.  I love them, can't help it, but I do.  They are mindless and I enjoy just sitting and not really having to think after a long day.

- Only my closest friends/family know of my blog, I don't know why, but I am embarrassed to say I have a blog.  Also, I kind of like it being my own little secret...

-At times living out of laundry baskets of clean clothes (sometimes folded, sometimes not) for a week or so until I decide to finally do something with them.

- Like Elise, I'm not career driven either.  I enjoy my life now and am fulfilled being a "stay-at-home mom" no matter how lame that may sound to others.

- Wanting to homeschool my kids.  If I have the time and am not working, why not teach them?  Plus I have control issues.

- I hate confrontation.  I hate the thought of someone being mad or arguing, I rather pretend the issue doesn't exsist.

- I'm a goody-goody.  I've never been one to live on the edge, sneak out, or do anything disrespectful.  I've only gotten one speeding ticket (at 19) and I cried the whole way home and was so disappointed in myself haha.


Thanks Elise for this fun idea!

I could own to almost all of these because you're my blog soul sister :) The fact that you admit to the first one is major. That is something people rarely will even admit to. You have such a big heart and you should be screaming about your blog because I love it so much and it's so awesome!!

Brownie said...

I typed up a list to keep on reserve for another week and um..it almost 100% matched yours! That's so funny and awesome. Go on fabulous girl!

Zoe {The Latina Lens} said...

I never tell anyone I have a blog! I am the same way, I would rather it be my secret! But your blog is so awesome and well written, I really think you should let everyone know :)

Nat said...

I kept my blog private for so many years!! I was too embarrassed to tell people- but now I just own and I don't care what they think!!

BLovedBoston said...

You have one of the toughest "careers" there is!!! I'm the same way about reality tv - it's my thing and I love it!!

Kristen said...

haha love this! i have gotten 2 speeding tickets (1 in each country lol) and both times i cried like a baby. i say homeschool them if you can!

Nina @ Flowers in my Hair said...

I feel ya about hair since we have the same type!

P!nky said...

I'm a goody-goody too, except when I'm on the athletic field, then I turn into a bad girl, haha!

Only a few people know about my blog too, I like having it as a secret!

Confrontation is no fun...

KatiePerk said...

Hooray! I am interested in home schooling too! I am the same way with my hair.

Zelle B. said...

Thanks for sharing all of these things! I can't go a whole week but I definitely go a couple of days for sure. And my blog was a secret for awhile too -- not really sure why, I just didn't want to tell most people! xo

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

I wish I could get away with washing my hair only once a week... or even twice a week. I washed my hair last night and its already greasy :( And my blog is mainly a secret to most people too. I've slowly started telling people about it but I just never really made it public knowledge for some reason LOL!

<3, Pamela

It's always fun reading these things! I am the same as you - too proudful at times and I know it's such a bad quality! I also watch too much reality TV, or as my hubby calls it, Crap! LOL

Megan said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who washes their hair once a week! Is it weird that I actually hate having clean hair? It never styles right, it frizzes immediately & it's just blah, well at least mine is!

Pamela @ alittleglitter.com said...

You are too cute! OMG, I HATE WASHING MY HAIR! I feel the same way. Such a waste of time. Also, I was a stay at home Mom for two years. Now I work outside the home and I have to say that being a SAHM is MUCH harder and more rewarding!

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

Super jealous of your hair! I hate that I have to wash mine every day, it gets so insanely limp/greasy. I've tried dry shampoo, but it's a very temporary remedy for me :(

Natalia { All the Things, etc } said...

I only wash my hair once a week too. No shame in that game!

Jillian Manesh said...

i wiiish i could only wash my hair once a week. it SO annoying to dry it. although it has been faster now that my hair is shorter. xo jillian

Katie Elizabeth said...

Don't worry -- I only wash my hair about once a week, too! It's pretty dry which I hate but I also love because it lets me get away with fewer washes haha. And barely anyone knows about my blog and I like it that way because I can just write whatever I want and not worry about how people IRL will "take" it!

Shelby Recent Somethings said...

You're a goody-goody? Pre or post wine ha? Loved reading this. It's always good to be a little proudful!

Christina McGuire said...

I swear, you and I are a lot alike! (I am thinking of homeschooling one day as well!)
Great post.

Up to the third "bullet" about reality shows, I THOUGHT WE WERE TWINS. :) I liked getting to know you better!

MakeMeUpMia said...

Love it, and reality show junkies unite :)

The Good Life | Healthy Living said...

Oh my gosh, you are too cute! First of all, AMEN about washing your hair once a week. I have thick dryhair too. Because of workouts, I use a waterless shampoo but I have a sweaty session at the gym I just need to wash it...lol. And I am the same way about my blog. I never told my fiance I hd a blog until after we were dating for like 7 months...lol. So glad to have found your blog!

Elise @ Cheers Yall said...

Gosh. Yes. I see so much of myself in you!!! My sweet fellow goody goody hates getting into trouble SAHM lovin gf. Cheers to you!!! You inspire ME!! :) Owning it!!!! xx

Lisa Loves John said...

Living out of laundry baskets... story of my life!! I can get my clothes clean, but I can never get them put away, ha!

Angie said...

I could own lots of these. I don't tell anyone about my blog either. I think it's because people around here are so close minded and they wouldn't get it.

Brenda @ Chatting Over Chocolate said...

How awesome that you only have to wash your hair once a week!! (I'm a teensy bit jealous! ;)) I homeschool my girlies and love it! I can relate to SO much of your list!! This was such a fun link up! Loved your post, girl! ;)
