Birthday Confessions

It's not the future that you are afraid of. It's repeating the past that makes you anxious.:
Today is my 29th birthday, and I've done a lot of reflecting as I'm entering into my last year of my 20s.  Age has never really bothered me, but this birthday has hit me in a good way to get my act in gear for some things I'd like to accomplish on my 30 before 30 list.  It's been a while since I've done a confessions post, so I figured today was a great day to do it! (Part 1 // Part 2 // Part 3)
In just a few short weeks of saying no, it's becoming a lot more natural, and a lot more sane around these parts.  All the heart eye emojis over here!
Everyone is talking about the Lip Sync Battle between the Tatums, and I'm still pretty darn obsessed with it.  I find myself re-watching parts of it if someone posts about it on social media.  It was just really, really awesome. #relationshipgoals
In reflecting on my 20s, I made some really silly decisions, but I only have one regret.  I feel like that's pretty significant.  I consider the rest all learning experiences and for that, I'm grateful.
I usually paint my nails with glitter for New Year's Eve and for my birthday, but this year, I opted for my all time favorite polish to ring in the new year(s).  And I'm still loving this top coat.
I just really love North Carolina.  As I've gotten older, I find myself more and more appreciative of my life here.  However, I am so disappointed in the education system here.  Not sure what I'm talking about?  Read here.
I'm pretty obsessed with this song.  Despite lofty ambitions and dreams, as long as I have DG (and my two furry boys), then I'm good.

Anyone know how I can become BFFs with Anna Bond?  I mean, seriously.

If it's not enough that I'm obsessed with Capri Blue's candles, their skin care is just as amazing.  I got  this as a little stocking stuffer, and omg.

I always talk about how I've hit the friend jack pot, but man am I a lucky girl with such fun, supportive, loving friends.
In just a few short weeks, I'll be in Tampa, reunited with my BFF ALB.  I haven't seen her since our wedding, and she's my person.  I'm not sure I'm going to be able to contain my excitement.
On a blogger note, I'm so annoyed with Instagram's new deal.  I mean, I feel like I don't see my favorite bloggers posts anymore and I don't get as much traffic as I once was.  Anyone else experiencing that?
I'm ready to get healthy again.  Looking at pictures prior to our wedding and now, I don't really like what I see.  Time to combat that slowing metabolism I've experienced recently.
Thanks so much for following along with me here.  I can't thank you all enough for your comments and your support.  Y'all rock!
What's on your mind today?
