So...the 100 confessions won. By one vote. So.....I'm doing 100 confessions.

But...dun, dun, dun.....I'm also doing a hair bow giveaway. :) More on that later.

Go ahead. Go tinkle. Pop some popcorn. Fix you a big glass of sweet tea. You'll be here a while.

  1. I have been using Ansleigh's Dora toothpaste for about five days now. It's pink and sparkly.
  2. It tastes really good. Berry bubble gum flavored. You know you want some.
  3. I officially have bushman eyebrows now.
  4. Also, I'm pretty sure I'm on my 4th layer of toenail polish. Gross, I know.
  5. I tried to remove the toenail polish and spent 20 minutes trying to get it off of just one toe. I was unsuccessful.
  6. I may need to borrow a sander.
  7. I've been reading The Shack lately.
  8. But I stopped because I was having weird dreams about God.
  9. In fact I am kinda scared to pick the thing up again. You see...I'm not a big fan of the Weirdo Dream Monster.
  10. I wonder if he (Weirdo Dream Monster) is BFF with Satan. IDK. My BFF Jill.
  11. I thought I was all popular and famous due to the bloggity blog until Katie friend asked me who that "Winn person" is. I durnt feel so famous anymore.
  12. Precious make up lady was talking about how big I was when I was preggo and I instantly was offended even though she was right.
  13. While at Sister's shower, nobody told me that my Capri tights were uneven. As leg was a good 3inches shorter than the other. Thanks for letting me look retarded.
  14. Speaking of retarded. I asked Bow Baby if she was retarded NOT meaning anything by it. Oh. Did I mention both parents heard me? Oops. My mom popped me on the leg like I was three again. Geez. It was a mere slip of the tongue mother-lady.
  15. I'm probably going to get yelled at for linking to her facebook page. Wait for's coming.
  16. Right now I have burney-burney eye syndrome which really just means that I am sleepy.
  17. I have decided to redo our guest bedroom meaning to paint, rearrange the furniture, find new bedding, and get rid of a whole bunch of junk we don't need or ever use.
  18. I told Hubs that I had made a decision that he probably wasn't going to like (the redo). He thought I'd caved to the pressure and wanted to have another baby.
  19. Haha. Hahahahahahahahaha.
  20. Haha hahahahahahahahaha
  21. I had to use my Momma's bathroom scales to make sure my suitcase wasn't going to weigh too much. It didn't, but it was close.
  22. Speaking of my Momma, I think Winn likes her more than me. She made a bookmark after her. You can buy it here. Nobody loves me that much.
  23. I know someone who stopped giving her kid antibiotics after 3 days because the child wouldn't take it, even by force.
  24. That person may or may not be me.
  25. A girlfriend of mine was talking about my "skill set" and all I could think about was, "You know, like nun chuck skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills... Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills." Hahahahaha.
  26. Whoever thought it was an excellent idea to be awake at 6AM should be punched in the face. Why? Because it is not an excellent idea to be up that early. It is however an excellent idea to still be asleep at such an hour.
  27. I still have burney burney eye syndrome.
  28. I have discovered that when I'm in Alabama I get lazy with my speech and become WAY more southern sounding. Almost country.
  29. I think I do it on purpose. To blend in more.
  30. I decided to declare this week junk removal from our house week.
  31. That will probably last all of about 35 minutes. And then I'll decide to lay on the couch because, "It would be better to wait until an off-Friday weekend."
  32. I realized today that I forgot to clean my toilets before I left for Alabama. Do the math....that means they are a week grosser than they were. Guess that's on my "to do" list for tomorrow. Ick!
  33. STILL haven't seen Harry Potter yet. Waiting to go see it with Carrie Friend. But our lives are so busy we may never get to see it. And then...I shall cry mountainous tears.
  34. I think I've come up with a genius idea.
  35. You know those Biore pore strip thingys. They should make those for your back. And then people wouldn't have gross blackheads on their back.
  36. By the way, notice I said "people" and not "me" because I would NEVER admit that I have gross blackheads on my back. Or my face. Or my chin. Or my nose. And sometimes my forehead.
  37. My friend Jessica is engaged. She asked me to be in her wedding. As a bridesmaid. Which is cool and all. NOW I MUST GO ON A DIET AND STARVE MYSELF. And become a gym rat. Could someone give me lessons on both of those things?
  38. Anthony and I usually go through a gallon of sweet tea in about 24 hours (more or less).
  39. Maybe that's why I'm still a fatty. Probably won't help my starvation gym rat diet.
  40. I thought Ansleigh was starting to poop today so I carried her to the bathroom, stripped her, sat her on her pink potty, and thought magic would happen.
  41. It didn't. She got up and thought it was time to take a bath and tried to climb into the tub.
  42. I deleted Jon & Kate: Plus 8 from our shows to record today. I'm done with them. Except by them, I mean him. Scumbag.
  43. I'm still praying for Kate and the kiddos, but he's just a scumbag and I am having difficulty praying for him. Scumbag. With two girlfriends. 10 years younger than him. Did I mention he's a scumbag?
  44. As much as I like to say I'm done with them, I can't seem to make myself stop clicking on links about them and what they are doing. I'm so nosy.
  45. I guess I still have my Alabama voice and not my Melbourne voice because a girl stopped me at Panchero's to tell me she liked my accent.
  46. Katie friend gave Bow Baby a baby doll at my sister's shower. Ansleigh named the doll "Katie Baby" (well her language it was more like "kay bay"). I put a bow in Katie Baby's hair. I guess she can be Bow Baby Jr.
  47. My name is Carrie. And I have a problem. I like to buy hair bows.
  48. I *might* have bought Ansleigh 4 more while we were in Anniston. Maybe. Possibly.
  49. Ok...I did. Like I said, my name is Carrie and I have a hair bow problem.
  50. Katie Baby looks awesome with her big blue hair bow in though. Trust me.
  51. Now if I could just find her the baby doll Kelly's Kids clothing to match one of Ansleigh's outfits....then we'd be in business.
  52. The business of spending my husband's money.
  53. I can actually be quite excellent at that business. Maybe that's one of my skills.
  54. Skills....hahahahaha. "EAT THE FOOD!"
  55. Some of you are wondering what I'm quoting. Not gonna tell.
  56. Winn friend and Kearsie friend have Edward Cullen dolls. They talk about them all the time. What they didn't tell you is that I, too have an Edward Cullen doll. He doesn't wear hair bows though. I mean....he's Edward Cullen.
  57. Edward Cullen doll is still in his package so I suppose he's suffocating. Except not. Vampires don't need to breathe. Admit it, you were worried there for a second.
  58. Part of the reason why he's still in the package is because I don't want Bow Baby to tear him up. Or try to make him fit into her Little People bulldozer. He'd break one of her favorite toys with all his vampire man strength. Then she'd cry....again.
  59. I seriously considered pulling the old "one, two, skip-a-few, 99, 100" thing on ya'll. But I've committed now.
  60. I just thought about how torturous it would be to read all this if it were someone else's blog.
  61. I sat down with Anthony and explained to him what Lolli and Pop Claus (my parents) are getting Ansleigh for Christmas. Then I explained to him what we are buying her for Christmas. And what "Santa" is giving her for Christmas. I also told him what we'd suggest for others to buy IF and only if we are asked.
  62. Yes, I know it is July. In September we will buy her presents. October/Early November will be everyone else's.
  63. We are not buying her a birthday present as we are taking her to Disney for her big day. :)
  64. I know I have a problem....OCD. But you see...I'm a planner. I need to have a plan. I cannot function without one.
  65. Speaking of a plan, I interviewed for a job to be a Varsity cheerleader coach at a new high school. Got the job. I also interviewed for a teaching position. Waited and waited and waited to find out. Started planning for the fall. Where I'd put Ansleigh. How I'd keep the house clean. Thought about some ideas for lesson plans. Found out I didn't get the job as there are still people in the county under contract that have to be placed.
  66. I thought I'd be relieved because I wasn't comfortable leaving Ansleigh in the hands of people I didn't know.
  67. Turns out I'm bummed. No salary this year. No minivan in my near future. No contributing to society in a way other than sitting in my house with my child. Also, I kind of felt rejected, which I'm not really used to and I don't like it.
  68. It's a LOT harder than I thought it would be to come up with a hundred of these blasted things.
  69. I mean...I've been working on these a little here and a little there since Sunday night. Gosh.
  70. I just turned Dora off because Ansleigh wouldn't get a diaper. I'm a mean momma.
  71. Then I laughed at her because she still wouldn't do it. She had a dance party instead. I told you, I'm a mean momma.
  72. Katie Baby has on a yellow hairbow today. Ansleigh picked it out for her. :) I have created a monster.
  73. Whenever I'm trying really hard not to spend money (you now), I always really struggle with it. However, if I'm not really trying and not so concerned with it, I don't spend as much. Why is that?
  74. I let Ansleigh have chocolate chip cookie cake for lunch today. I figure you gotta live a little every now and then.
  75. I didn't clean the toilets today. I thought about it though. Does that count?
  76. I did some cleaning out in the guest room though and that makes me feel a little better about myself.
  77. Right now, I'm working on this at 2:24 am because I took a nap today and now I cannot sleep.
  78. Occasionally, when I can't sleep, I'll go out to the living room and play on the computer. Last time I did that I learned my lesson.
  79. If I let the husband spend time alone in the bed...asleep. I shall not return to my 3/4ths that I usually have. He spreads out. And then I don't even get half. Which is completely unacceptable.
  80. Tonight, I went and got my laptop and brought it into the bedroom. I am blogging from the 3/4ths so that he doesn't get too comfy and spread out.
  81. You think I'm mean. You think I'm a bed hog. I'm not....mostly. He likes it this way. He sleeps better crowded. :) Just ask him.
  82. I finished reading The Shack. Maybe that's why I can't sleep.
  83. By the way, it is not scary at all. It just caused me to have weird dreams (as I have a vivid imagination) so I stopped reading it. But I finished it. About an hour ago.
  84. At this point in 1984 I wasn't even a year old yet. Does that make you feel old?
  85. I have a scar in between my eyes from crawling into the corner of my daddy's gun cabinet. Or maybe I fell. Either way, my momma thought I poked my eye out. Turns out, I didn't.
  86. But I did fall again right after I got the first set of stitches out. Because I'm cool like that.
  87. When I was in Kindergarten, I got the chicken pox. At Christmas. And lost my two front teeth. Best Christmas pictures ever. Except not. I look like a dotted little monster with frizzy hair in a red sweat suit with a reindeer painted on it.
  88. The scars on my forehead are from the chicken pox. That I caught from my sister. I guess I could blame her for not having flawless skin. ;)
  89. In 1989 I was in my first beauty pageant. I won. I can you resist a kid with curly blonde pig tails and an appliqued Kelly's Kids jumper?
  90. I did pageants all through high school. But just the school ones because I was entirely too busy to do bigger ones. I cheered, played basketball, softball, was editor of the school paper and 10 million other things.
  91. I was so busy in high school that when I first started college, I didn't know what to do with my time. So I watched Dirty Dancing over and over again. And then it changed to You've Got Mail.
  92. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Seriously, why did you people vote for this? You must be exhausted by now.
  93. I hate The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. What a STUPID idea for a TV show. Most of the people only go on there to become popular. And why would you be OK with dating someone that 20 other people are dating? That goes against my standards. And it should go against theirs too.
  94. My mom and my sister both love those shows. I've probably just offended them. Oops.
  95. Guess what? I hate American Idol too. They drag it out too much and make it too dramatic.
  96. I thought about going walking/jogging tonight. But then I realized I'd get hot...and sweat. Then I'd need another shower. So I watched a movie with Hubs instead.
  97. I've been coming up with some really good concepts for blog posts lately and haven't been able to do anything about it because I've been working on these blasted 100 confessions to post for my 100th post.
  98. I DVR'd Wednesday's So You Think You Can Dance because Ellen was a judge on it. I follow her on Twitter cuz she's funny.
  99. I've been known to use the tweezers to pull my leg hairs out. Not all of them. Just the stray ones that I've missed. I'm sure that makes me gross and weird. Whatevs.
  100. I can currently hear the Hallelujah Chorus playing in my head as I am now FINISHED!!!!!!
