Friday Confessional...

I've never participated in this link up before...but hey why not?
I'm stuck to my couch anyway...thank you random stomach bug that won't go away...

I confess...
I have watched like three seasons of Friends in the past week.  I have zero regrets about this.

I confess...
That lately, as I watch so many people in my life start their families {as in, having babies or trying to have babies}, I am moving further and further away from wanting that.  I am so ready to be married to my fiance and start our life together, but more and more I am moving away from wanting children of my own.  I can't picture being unselfish enough to want to go through that... and that makes me feel like a horrible person.

I confess...
I am sick of seeing other people plan their weddings on Pintrest.  Mostly because I keep seeing ideas I love and need to reign myself in, because pretty much all of mine is planned already...and all of those ideas won't mesh with what's already in place.

I confess...
I am super nervous about the impending snow storm/blizzard.  I am not a fan of snow.  At least, not when it can potentially mean a loss of power or people crashing in it while driving...like my fiance.  Who I now panic about being in the car and driving in the snow every single time.  I'm a freak.

I confess...
I still have my Christmas decorations up.  Including my tree.  I can't help it...I love Christmas.

First, welcome to the party! Second, I hope you kick that stomach bug to the curb soon.

I'm not entirely sure I want to have babies, or at least not sure I want to do the whole pregnancy thing. And it's okay to feel that way, but man, it can be hard to get other people to be okay with how you feel.

Pinterest...I love it and hate it. It can be the end all of a productive work day. But there are so many fantastic ideas out there.

Hope you guys both stay safe and warm through the storm this weekend.

Thanks for linking up for Friday Confessional! Have a fabulous weekend.

aww, well you're not alone on the not wanting kids and sometimes feeling guilty about it thing. I blame society for making me feel like that! There's nothing wrong with having kids. Worse would be having kids for the wrong reason. <3

with *not having kids, I meant!

I am a Friends addict, too! There's no shame in that! Happy Weekend!

Being honest with yourself about the possibility of having or not having children is you not being selfish. There are a lot of people put there who have kids, and then spend that entire kid's life making them feel bad for even being born, like they had anything to do with it. It's ok to not want them, and it's ok to be selfish about it! Everybody has a different journey in life, and not everyone is destined to be a parent. No big deal :)

And I feel ya on Pinterest weddings! Our wedding was in May, and I STILL catch myself replanning the whole thing in my head. Makes no sense lol

Haaaa! Christmas decorations can easily morph into Valentines the Mardi Gras :D you go on with your awesome sparkletastic self!

I feel the same way about having kids- I'm too selfish to devote my life to kids. And I'm ok with that. And you should be, too, as it's entirely your decision. Yay! :)

Also, Xmas decor still up when the snow hits...is like Christmas Part 2! Well done. :)

I do hope you feel better ASAP!

Friends is the best! I don't know how many times I will see the same episode still enjoy it just as much as the first time. I just got my tree down last weekend.. and it finally made it to the garage on Tuesday. I don't think there is anything wrong with that! ;) Good luck with the storm!Driving in snow is the worst! Stay safe and have a great weekend.
