I confess.....

I confess that I have a new addiction:  Angry Birds Star Wars.  *sighs*  I played that game the whole way to New Orleans.  I'm hooked.  I admit it.  

I confess.....

I confess that I am a recovering magazine addict.  Yep!  But I'm doing *much* better now.  For one thing, I don't have as much time to read them like I used to, and the costs have gone way up.  So now I only have three subscriptions, and one was a gift, so I'm only actually paying for two.  :D  One magazine I subscribed to for over twenty years I know longer take because it just isn't as good as it used to be.  This one's my favorite:

I confess.....

I confess that I have my work cut out for me the next several days. Everything in my kitchen must be washed.  everything.  There is a fine coat of dust all.  Over.  Everything.  But I confess that although I haven't had the best attitude about it, I'm trying hard to focus on the positive: Our countertops are *fixed*  SQUEE!!!  :D

We chose the distressed black walnut countertop for our breakfast bar from Heirloom Countertops in Atlanta via The Home depot.

I confess.....

I confess that I must stay away from the Heirloom Book Co. sale @ One King's Lane! Seriously, I could get into so much trouble!  :/

Now this is a great library!  Love how light and bright it is!

The workers were here past dinner time, so I'm late to the party.  :/
What do you have to confess?
Until next time...

  1. I confess that I've scaled back on magazines too. I no longer subscribe to any, but I still pick up a copy at the grocery if I see one I have to read. Brought home two today. ;-)

  2. First...the English magazine you get sounds you have an address to subscribe? And while I'm on the subject, this is funny...I used to subscribe to everything because the savings was so great. Then I found I had no time to read all of them so I unsubscribed and now just pick up a few here or there.

    I LOVE the wood counter tops! I wanted them myself but hubs loves granite. Have to compromise you know! I'm glad the dirty work is done! :)


  3. I confess that I haven't been to the library in over six months! This is bad, very bad.

  4. Oh I have also cut some subscriptions to magazines. It is hard though as I find myself buying them now from time to time and probably paying more than had I bought the subscription. I do not know that magazine you mention so that could be a problem for me now! ;)

  5. I absolutely love magazines too and The English Home is a favorite !

  6. I quit all magazine subscriptions a few years ago...I miss them, but not the paper clutter they generate since, I confess, I have a hard time getting rid of magazines. I have years worth of cooking magazines here because, I confess, I can't just rip out the recipes that interst me...but I am going to try! That library is simply divine and makes me less than thrilled with the one I threw together this week!

  7. We're fans of distressed dark woods here, so Fedora and I give that a huge thumbs up! :) sale! I would not have the willpower to stay away (last year, I went to a warehouse book sale for my favorite local book a basket full of books on my wishlist, and spent less than $ I'm hooked on those!).

    And while I don't have the home magazine addiction, I *am* keen on Pinterest kitchen pictures. Such lovely, lovely stuff out there!

  8. I will NOT get sucked back into Angry Birds addiction, so you just take that away from me right now, Ricki Jill! =)

    I need to pare down the magazines. It's a waste of money if I don't have time to read them.

    Thanks for linking up for Friday Confessional!
