Theme Thursday: Shaming & {pretty, happy, funny, real} vol. 80: The “I’m ashamed to say…” Edition

It’s a photo mash-up as I link up with two of my favorite blogs/bloggers –ย  Cari for Theme Thursday: Shaming (I’m ashamed of the language that came out of my mouth when I read the theme for today) and Like Mother, Like Daughter for {pretty, happy, funny, real} .


Last night we had our first real rain of the season and we desperately needed it! When I woke up the next morning I am ashamed to say that the kids were late for school because instead of making their breakfast I went out on the deck in my pj’s and bare feet to watch the sun rise over the trees and snap some photos.

It looked like a scene from a tropical paradise, especially as the fog sat at the bottom of the hills.

So they were late getting to school…and I’m ashamed to say I’d do it all over again!



I’m ashamed to say that for the last week the housework has suffered (Never mind that it’s not a shock. I mean more than usual!), the dishes have been left in the sink every night and everyone has run out of clean underwear because we have been using all our spare time to send Christmas care packages to our soldiers before the Post Office deadline. However, I am happy that my three little elves have gotten into the spirit ofย  Christmas and have been helping me out fill out the soldier’s Christmas stockings…

…even though I am ashamed to say that after 15 minutes of their “help” I sent them to their room to play with Legos because the chaos was driving me nuts. ๐Ÿ˜‰



I was dumping out some old magazines and I’m ashamed to admit how my reading material compares to Brian’s. While he is reading about the Pope’s latest homily…

…I’m checking to see what Daryl is up to and what the Governor will do to Rick and the gang.


I’m ashamed to admit that I have been celebrating Christmas since Halloween. I am ashamed to admit that I love to watch every single movie on the Hallmark Channel’s countdown to Christmas movie list, especially the romantic ones. And the other night Brian sat down with me to watch one (doesn’t he just rock!) and the two main characters were falling in love as they baked Christmas cookies and made hot chocolate. Brian suggested that we make some hot chocolate so we paused the movie and made our treats. The only thing missing? The cookies. Then I remembered that I bought a tin of Christmas cookies for a friend who loved them and I hid them in the garage so no one would be tempted to eat them.

I’m ashamed to say that I sneaked out to the garage, took them from their hiding place and opened them up so Brian and I could enjoy. Then I hid the box so the kids wouldn’t see them and Brian and I could have a secret treat another night. heehee. Yeah, I’d totally do that again, too.

(As I am typing this, Bella came into the room and saw this photo of the cookies. She said, “When did you guys have those?” I stammered and said, “Have you finished your homework?” She said no so I sent her off. I escaped this time but my crime may be found out once they start sniffing around. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Have a blessed week! Please pray for us that we have a safe trip. I’ll post a pic from Disneyland. ๐Ÿ™‚
