Thursday Confessions

I've been wanting to link up with Leigh for awhile, so today I decided that I was going come up with a couple of confessions and share them with you all.


I am awful at applying make up.  It probably takes me a whole 2 minutes to use what I have.  The thing is, I'm actually okay with it.  Yes, I'd prefer if my complexion was clearer looking, my lashes were longer, and my eyes were a bit smokey on occasion.  But that requires me spending more of my day learning how to apply it all, and then it takes time out of my daily life doing it.  I have a lot of other things I'd rather spend my time doing.


I hate mushrooms.  I can usually eat most foods, even if I have to gag them down.  Heck, I've eaten reindeer heart in Finland.  But mushrooms, not a chance.  It's not even so much the flavor as it is the texture.  Before we found out Gracie was gluten free, I used to cook with creme of mushroom soup, but even those tiny little mushrooms could not be eaten.  I picked each one out of my food.  I know they are supposed to be really good for you, but my thinking is... mushrooms are a fungus.  Nobody should have to learn to like a fungus, right!  ;)


 I miss driving a vehicle with a stick shift.  All through high school, every vehicle that I ever drove was a manual.  I think I miss that it gives me something to do while driving.  Driving can be so boring.  At least if you have a stick shift and the clutch, you're always doing something.


I love living in Montana, but I often wonder what it would be like to live somewhere else.  If I had to pick up at this very moment and pick a new state to live in, I think I'd pick Texas.  Who knows if I'd even like it, as I've never even been there to visit.  Do you all ever wonder where else you'd live if you had to move.

I hope I don't scare too many people off, by flying my "freak flag."  ;)



  1. YEA!!!! Thanks for linking up with me!! Love this post - I also have no idea what I am doing applying makeup, but do my best!! And, I just heard on the radio yesterday only 3% of cars are being made in standard format and most people do not know how to drive a stick. They claim in 10 years there will be no more stick shifts --- because people want to be doing other things like texting while driving. Isn't that crazy!?? I am thankful I learned, just in case!

  2. Come visit me!! I think you'd like Texas :) It's a great state for so many reasons, but most of all, the people. But you'd definitely miss your beautiful MT scenery. I wish I got to see mountains more often. So do all of you eat gluten free now?

  3. I've always wanted to live in TX, until I visited in August and I realized I'm not cut out for the kind of heat that will burn your skin off, lol!

    1. That's how we feel about the cold y'all have! Haha. I guess we're conditioned to what we grew up with :)
