Courtney Confessions

  • Clayton officially started classes for a second degree in radiation therapy and he's already aced every assignment and quiz. I'm so gosh darn proud of him, I just want to shout "MY HUSBAND IS THE SMARTEST MAN ON EARTH!", but I haven't found an appropriate way to work that into daily conversation.

  • There are shoe marks literally covering the walls of our townhouse. Clayton's right leather sandal is our chosen spider-crushing weapon of choice and sadly, we've had to utilize it often this summer. Using Clay's shoe is the only way I can reach the loathsome little creatures running across the upper walls, and I'm usually too traumatized by the experience (and I can't reach high enough) to grab a rag and wipe up my kill.
  • Clay walked in on me lip-syncing and dancing to the music of Glee while I was running on the treadmill on Sunday, and it was probably one of the most embarrassing moments of my life. He always knew I was dorky, but he had no idea I was that dorky.

  • My mother-in-law graciously loaned me her old bicycle to train with for my upcoming spring triathlon. I haven't been on a bike in years, but I didn't figure that would be an issue because come on, riding a bike is like ... riding a bike ... you never forget.

    I totally forgot.

    I peddled down my in-law's street, but I couldn't remember how to turn around. Instead of making a U-turn like a normal person, I rode into the woods and crashed into some bushes. It took me a solid 5 minutes to pull weeds and foliage from the tire spokes. This triathlon could very well kill me.
  • I'm really, really into lip gloss and lipstick of all a sudden. I've always loved make-up, but I never liked the feeling of having anything other than hot men chapstick on my lips. I would always glam up my eyes and skin, but that would be it. I didn't even care if it left me looking washed out in the mouth area; there's nothing worse than a strand of hair getting stuck in the goopy pile of gloss on your lips.

    But the other day I fell completely in love with Maybelline's Baby Lips balm. This little tube of balmy wonder was the gateway into a whole new world of lip products. I was so in love with the light, glossy sheen that I took a family member up on her offer and purchased some Mary Kay products with an amazing discount. I ordered a bright berry gloss and a gorgeous, neutral shade called "Glazed Apricot". Now I'm totally one of those girls who preens her lips after taking a sip of water.

    Me, the girl who used to sleep and shower in a baseball hat is totally into lip gloss ... who would have thought?


  1. I didn't know Clayton went back to school already!? Congrats! Big step and I am proud :o) I just had my bike tires inflated like a week ago and I too completely forgot how to use it. I wobbled all over the place .. however I didn't crash LOL

    1. Yes! He started his first class last week. He spent HOURS studying during our stay-cation. One afternoon he parked himself at the kitchen table and didn't move for about 4 hours. I am so proud of him. This is something he really wants and I love watching him succeed!

      Ha! We should totally go bike riding together this summer!

  2. Lol, my husband and I got bikes two weeks ago. I've fallen off twice. Not once, TWICE. I currently have an unsightly bruise on my leg. So, apparently you CAN forget how to ride a bike...
