That said, here were my favorite reads lately:

DIY Acrylic Office Supplies from IHeart Organizing [Weekly Round-Up at High-Heeled Love]
IHeart Organizing shared a DIY acrylic clipboard and pencil cup project this week. I think these would make a great gift idea for a couple of my teacher friends.

DIY Pouf Ottoman from The Happy Housie [Weekly Round-Up at High-Heeled Love]
Another how-to post, I'm loving this pouf ottoman from The Happy Housie. It's exactly the sort of thing to beef up the seating in our living room.

Uninvited from Easily Entertained [Weekly Round-Up at High-Heeled Love]
Christina from Easily Entertained shared a post about all the places of uninvited "guests" can hide in a house, and her not-so-irrational fears that go along with them. She could have saved this one for Halloween; I'm now properly freaked out.

On Being Unfollowed from A Peek at Karen's World [Weekly Round-Up at HIgh-Heeled Love]
Karen from A Peek at Karen's World shared a post about being unfollowed on social media that's a good reminder to not get too hung up on numbers or fake followers.

I talked last month about how we're trying to simplify our lives, and I'm finding that we're not the only ones. There this post from Why Girls are Weird that touches on five areas of life to simplify. And there's this 30 Day Minimalism Challenge from Into Mind.

Friday Confessional 7.31.15

Good morning, lovelies!

Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You'll feel better when you're finished.

<div class="FRIDAY-CONFESSIONAL-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 200px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="" rel="nofollow"> <img src="" alt="FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="200" height="256" /> </a> </div>

I confess...

In the last week and a half, we've had four promotions at the dojo. I'm really proud and happy for my fellow classmates.

But it's a bit frustrating for me because the biggest thing standing between me and a promotion is that I haven't updated my notebook. I really need to get that done.

I confess...

While going through photos yesterday, I came across this gem of me and the Mister from 2006. This was taken at a friend's 40th birthday party. I think that might have been the first of my friends to turn 40 - I was only 25 at the time. It's hard to believe this photo is nearly 10 years old.

I confess...

Now, a bunch of my friends have turned or are turning 40. The latest and greatest is my buddy Lee. Her 40th is tomorrow; we're celebrating by going out for sushi.

And she doesn't realize it, but there may or not may not be Over the Hill balloons hanging out in my spare bedroom right now. The plan is to let myself in and decorate her house once she leaves for work today. (Let's hope she doesn't read the blog today.)

I confess...

I'm so glad that July is almost over. Not only does August bring my birthday, but we're only a few weeks away from Gamecock football season. Only 33 days until kickoff!
