Friend Makin' Mondays ~ Confessions!

This week for FFM, Kasey has asked us to fess up and share some of our dirty little secrets. I started doing Friday Confessions several months ago, and decided to be a little lazy this morning ~ rather than making a few new confessions, I’ll just share some of the best of my previous confessions. Here they are!

~ I have the worst short~term memory on the planet. It is not uncommon for me to ask Nate 2 or 3 times within several minutes if he slept good, how his day was, or if he had a good workout. Not only do I forget that I already asked him the question, but I also FORGET HIS ANSWER! At first, this really irritated him, but now we both just think it’s really funny. Well, I think it’s really funny. He may just tolerate it silently…

~ I have a rather extensive collection of beer bottle caps. I started collecting them last year when Dear Almost~Little~Brother~in~Law jokingly suggested it would be fun to collect a bunch ~ I thought it would be fun to make some sort of project out of them, maybe a table top for our game room or something. I now have two boxes full of them (a friend gifted me some from a friend of a friend’s dad or something like that), and if I’m honest with myself, I know that I will probably never make anything out of them. But I can’t get rid of them and I can’t stop collecting them!

~ I am incredibly anal when it comes to drying my clothes. I am so paranoid that something I love will shrink in the dryer! To be honest, I don’t really even need a dryer as I air~dry everything except my socks and a few knit tops that tend to grow in the wash. But it’s worked out well ~ I have bras and panties from my brief stint at Victoria’s Secret six and a half years ago that are still in like~new condition. Wash that lingerie on the delicate cycle and air~dry it, ladies! If you do, it will last forever!

~ When I'm sewing, I sometimes drop pins on the floor. And if I can't find them after a quick glance at the potential drop area, I sometimes leave them there. Horrible, I know. Especially considering that Dear Almost~Little~Brother~in~Law's feet seem to be a magnet for pins...

Stop by Kasey’s blog to join in the fun!

Happy Monday!

Great list...

I think a table top would be great with the bottle caps...I have actually seen one done before.

Lins said...

haha! Great list. I must say that I agree with you on the don't-dry-the-lingere thing. It makes a huge difference, doesn't it?

I'm going to pass the link to your Etsy shop on to a friend of mine. She's getting married in September and I love your garters so much I'm making an official Maid of Honor suggestion on where she should shop for her garter. :) (Her name is Becky if she gets a hold of you!)

Happy FMM!

Happy FMM!

And I may have to fight with you for the worst short term memory on the planet title. :p

Trudy said...

Great list...I love the idea of a table top with your beer bottle caps!

Happy FMM!

Jolanthe said...

Laughing at the bottle caps. :) I'd be with you too - now you HAVE to find something fun to make!

Susana said...

I'm with you on the clothes drying! Happy FMM!

Rhonda said...

Great confessions! Man I wish I could sew!!

I bet you will end up with something fab with your collection!

Tanielle said...

I hate looking for pins too. Drives me crazy, until I find it with my foot.:-) Make that table with the caps, how cool would that be?!!!

Have a wonderful Monday!

Becca @ The Texas Darlings said...

I don't dry very much either! It seems that everything shrinks!!

Have a great week!


jenjen said...

Hi Heather!

Good FMM list! I air dry tons of my clothes too. It makes them last so much longer!

Have a super day!


Jessica said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Happy FMM! You should totally do something with those beer bottle caps - that would be the NEATEST thing!

Xazmin said...

Your confessions are adorable...not horrible like mine!

J.J. said...

That is sooooo funny about asking the same question a few time in a short amount of time!!!!! :)

Vivienne said...

I am sure you could make something darling with the bottle caps. But you could also keep collecting them and get a whole bunch and use them for a practical joke... like fill someone's cubicle or shower stall with them. (Another confession I should have listed, I guess...)

Amber said...

Wow, you love to walk on the wild side girl!! :)

Just teasing you. Seriously though, I can't believe you don't find every single one of those pins!! I would be paranoid!!

Your short term memory thing is funny. I wonder why it's like that?

I hear you on the laundry issue. I have WAY too much laundry to do that, but I'd really like to. I'm anal about putting all of my tank tops into laundry bags. My dryer rips off the straps. I've lost literally like 12 tank tops because of it. I hate that!!

I also take things off of Saylor right away if she spills or something. I spray and wash immediately. It never works!! Sometimes it does, but not most of the time. Hate that too!
