I Confess.... Homesickness and Loans and More!


I confess.... this was supposed to be a Friday Confessions hosted by Mamarazzi. But, I got side tracked several times and never got the post done. Better late than never, I guess!

I confess.... that Friday was Epiphany. And therefore the start of the Carnival season in New Orleans and other parts of the Gulf Coast. Which means another Mardi Gras season that I am not in Louisiana for. My extreme homesickness has returned.

I confess.... that I am really upset that I am 900 miles from New Orleans during Carnival Season. This means King Cakes are not readily available to me. Anyone who knows me, knows these are my downfall...

I confess... that I am nervous about having to take out student loans to finish college. I knew the day would come when I would have to. But, the thought of putting myself into so much debt terrifies me!

I confess.... that one of my good friends told me about a Cupbrookie. This has to be the dessert equivalent of a Turducken (chicken stuffed in a duck stuffed in a turkey). Anyhow, a Cupbrookie is a cookie inside of a brownie inside a cupcake. Sugar.Rush!

I confess.... that I am OVER THE MOON that the Saints beat the Lions in the playoffs.

I confess.... that I am now addicted to the show Dance Moms. It is a trainwreck, let me tell you! But, I can't turn away...
