Friday Confessional...


It's time for my favorite post of the week:

Friday Confessional!!


Photobucket

I confess:

-It drives me crazy that I have to use anti-wrinkle cream and zit cream. I mean, come on! I'm not 13 any more nor am I 50. But if I didn't use either one, ScArY!!

I confess:

-I have been coloring my hair to cover my grays for almost 10 years. When Marcus and I got married almost 8 years ago, I had one gray hair. If I didn't color my hair regularly, I would be almost completely gray. I'm only 29!!! (I know, I know...remember..I am always going to be 29...for like forever!!) I use to always get it colored professionally, but when we had to start watching every penny, that luxury went out the window. Now I have to do it myself. from a box. from the grocery store. The horror, I know.

I confess:

-I still shop in the junior department. I can't bring myself to shop in the women's department. I don't want to dress like my grandma. (No offense, Grandma.) I struggle finding my own style. I don't want to look like a teenager, but I don't want to look like a grandma. There needs to be a happy medium somewhere. There have been numerous times that I have had the same shirt, or pants or purse as one or more of the young women I work with at church. I don't want to be one of those 50 year old women that still dresses like they are 12. You know the ones I am talking about: they look like leather from all the years of tanning, their hair is like 3 feet tall and bleach blonde, their clothes are WAY too tight and their fingernails are longer than their fingers. That's gonna be me in 20 years. Except I don't tan since my grandpa died of skin cancer. I'm always as white as a ghost and I'm okay with that. But the rest will be me unless I learn to dress my age.

I confess:

-I find myself watching the kids' shows (I Carly, Wizards of Waverly Place, Victorious) when they aren't even around. I think I Carly is freakin' hilarious!! Love that show. And yes, I listen to Justin Bieber when Emma isn't around. But don't tell her; she will freak out and get all psycho on me. Justin is hers and only hers.

Great...I just realized that I have revealed to the whole wide world....or small handful of people who actually read this..that I am really a 30 something that colors her gray hair, still gets acne, has wrinkles and dresses like a teenager. Classy Monica. Classy.

I LOVE iCarly! It's seriously a guilty pleasure, I only get to watch it when I'm babysitting though.

I have no style either and have a hard time figuring out what I should be wearing at 25 - I mean I know I shouldn't be shopping in the juniors section but I certinately don't want to be shopping in the professional woman section either. How am I supposed to be dressing?!

It makes me nervous to know that that question won't be going away any time soon...

Have a great weekend! :)

I can't shop in juniors--nothing fits right since I had kids. I try to find the misses department--unfortunately Wally world does not really have one of those. Makes clothes shopping frustrating.

I'm right there with you as far as the style thing goes. Sometimes my American Eagle jeans and a graphic t-shirt are all that I feel like wearing. But then I see my teenage nieces and start to feel frumpy and old.

Nothing wrong with watching iCarly! I love that show! Loved your confessions too!

Bridget said...

I love iCarly, too!!

I worked in a Jr. Department for a year, and had a handful of college age "sylists", and I like my look. It's fun, but it's not too young, and not too old.

oh man...I freakin wish I could FIT into the clothes in the junior department! From this moment on I will become bulimic! LOL, I just asked my husband how to spell bulimic!

natalie said...

I also love icarly and would totally shop in the jr. department if I could fit into the clothes.
at 17 I started dying my hair for fun, now that i'm 33 and have to dye it...not so fun anymore

sarajo said...

Target has a great woman's section that isn't old at all! I wonder what the YW's mom's think of you wearing the same stuff their girls do. LOL!

And I watch Phineas and Ferb. Love that show! Sometime I just leave it on when the kids are napping.

Hey, I say be young for as long as you can. What's wrong with being hip and stylish and in the now if yah can be? You could be huge and frumpy like me and always just look like a slob... I mean come on! Live it up, woman! And you don't dress like a teenager :P Though, sometimes, you do act like one :P Hehehehehehehe

Debbie said...

Love it! I'm older than you are and I'm still drawn to the junior department. I know what you mean about finding the right style. new follower here - I'm glad I found your blog!

I lost my style when I became a mom - my uniform now is jeans and a t-shirt. I buy them from the Gap, so I feel like I have some sense of style....sigh....

I'm 29 and use anti-wrinkle cream and zit cream (and soap) as well!

I read an article saying how when you are almost 30 you shouldn't be using the same acne soaps as when you were a teen...so I stopped...and then my face broke out worse than it ever has in my life.

So I said 'screw you, stupid article!' And I went back to my Clearasil.

I have some gray hair too. :( The stylist told me when I went in to get my hair dyed. I didn't understand why she felt the need to inform me of that since she was about to dye over it anyway.

Leslie said...
