Humpday Confessions

First, I want to thank you all for participating in yesterday's linkup! You all shared some amazing pictures and brought back great memories for everyone. This linkup is open for another 8 days, so if you haven't already, feel free to join in!! 

Now, since it's Wednesday, you all know what that means . . . . Humpday Confessions with Kathy.

Let's start with the big one . . . I have completely failed and thus given up on the April Wallet Watch. I'm still planning on linking up on May 6th to spill the beans why I failed so miserably. If you are still in it - keep going!! And remember to linkup! 

Life According to Steph

My lawn is already overgrown. I knew it was going to need mowed when I got back from my parents, but DAMN has it grown! It's going to take me a good 3 hours to get it all mowed and looking nice. And I absolutely HATE yard work.

And I'm going to let it grow for a few more days, because I have commitments after work until Friday. And then I'm pretty sure I will want to drink some beers after work and not mow my lawn. So by the time I get to it on Saturday Cooper may have disappeared! 

Super long grass. And nasty flower beds that need edged. 

I'm still eating leftovers from Easter and I don't intend to grocery shop until the weekend. If I need food I will just have to go out (another April Wallet Watch Fail). It of course helps that my awesome mom took me to the hometown grocery store where she loaded me up on my deli favorites before coming home. So I'm not just eating candy and ham for a week :]

I did make the "bunny bait" I wrote about last week here, but as usual I completely forgot to take pictures. I made a slightly different version of what I pinned, and it was DELICIOUS. I plan on making it again soon and taking pictures and doing a whole post on the recipe. Because yes, it was that good.

Since my brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew were out of town for Easter, there were no little kids around for Easter fun. I decided to make some homemade doggie treats. All of my aunts and uncles have multiple dogs, so I knew it wouldn't be a waste. And for being my first try, I don't think they turned out so bad. 

I also dyed Easter eggs, because I felt that it wasn't really Easter without colored eggs. What can I say, I like to go all out for holidays!

So what are you confessing to this Wednesday??


  1. That is so fun that you made dog treats for Easter!! I really need to make some homemade treats for my dogs, I know they would just love it!!!

    I hate yard work as well. Like really....who likes it? I wouldn't trust anyone who actually enjoyed it. Liars!!!

  2. I'm horrible at remembering to take pictures. I always think of it after the fact. Oh, well. At least you know you made them! Hah

  3. i failed so bad at wallet watch too so i gave up. and i love the eggs! next year i will be making colored eggs. ok, i lie, i probably won't but my MIL always does :)

    thanks for linking up!

  4. Cute dog treats!

    This is the first year in like 12 years that MFD and I didn't die eggs. I had no desire.

    Yard work sucks it.

    I also bit the big one on the Wallet Watch.

  5. I was doing so well with the wallet watch until yesterday when I bought unnecessary shoes. oops. but that's still pretty good for me considering how good I've been the rest of the month!

  6. That is so sweet you made Easter dog treats! I told my husband I want to do all the Easter traditions next year...we didn't do anything this year but had a great weekend despite that ;)
