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.

Grab button for FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="FRIDAY-CONFESSIONAL-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 200px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/HighHeeledLove_zps6db62c81.jpg" alt="FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="200" height="256" /> </a> </div>


I confess...

I have to apologize that Friday Confessional is going up so late today. I had a funeral to go today, and I thought I'd have time to wrap the post up before I had to leave, but I didn't sleep well last night so I snoozed a little bit this morning.

Thank goodness for coffee.

I confess...

I snapped a quick selfie on my way out the door this morning. You can see in the background that we still have snow in our yard. I really am read for the stuff to be gone. I'm just not a fan of cold weather.


I confess...

I caught the sickness that the Mister brought into our house last weekend...so my week has involved lots of sneezing and sniffling. Hopefully the sinus funk will be gone soon.

I confess...

In addition to being somewhat absent here in blogland, I've been a poor friend this week. My bestest has a birthday yesterday, and I still need to call her as well as mail her gift. Hopefully she'll forgive and forget.

I confess...

So far we're staying on track with the resolution to use and save the produce from our Brown Box Veggies...even if it did mean peeling freezing three bunches of bananas this week. Doesn't the box we're getting tomorrow look amazing?

Hello, fellow winos!

Welcome back for this week's Wino Wednesday, co-hosted with Danielle from Sweet Southern Girl. Let me cover the ground rules for the party:
  1. Grab the Wino Wednesday Button
  2. Write a post that is wine-related
  3. Link up and visit with the other partiers

Grab button for WINO WEDNESDAY at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="WINO-WEDNESDAY-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 250px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/WinoWednesdaynewbutton_zpsea48bc45.png" alt="WINO WEDNESDAY at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="250" height="188" /> </a> </div>

Easy peezy. Now on to the wine.

So, where I live in South Carolina, we see snow maybe once a year....which is just fine by me. But that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy the occasional snow day.


But with the white stuff comes ice, and in this area, that typically means downed power lines and/or broken pipes. We had freezing temps a few weeks ago, and the city had a broken water main, which meant the entire city was without water for at least 18 hours and then boil advisory after that.

I don't like to be one of those people who rushes to the grocery, but I did go for supplies yesterday....You know, a couple gallons of drinking water as well as a few bottles of wine just in case.

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Welcome to the Weekly Round-Up linky party, hosted by me and Miss Angie from My So-Called Chaos.

This party is all about sharing those fabulous blogs that you've read through the week and promote our blogger community. I hope it will help you use this party to find new blogs to read and build some new blogger friendships.

So, here are the rules:

1. Grab the button.
2. Write a little list of your favorite reads this week and why.
3. Link up below and go find some fabulous new ladies to be friends with.


Grab button for WEEKLY ROUND-UP at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="WEEKLY-ROUND-UP-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 250px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/47f1b200-2680-4570-861b-31a2456adb15_zps324769d5.jpg" alt="WEEKLY ROUND-UP at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="250" height="250" /> </a> </div>
That said, here were my favorite reads lately:

1. I think we'd all like to be more productive from day to day, and A Beautiful Mess has put together a list of 10 (realistic) steps to help you do that.

2. I am regularly inspired by The Happy Housie's colorful home decor projects, but I am LOVING this Jewelry Tray that she shared this week. And it's all made from dollar store finds, so it would be cheap to replicate.

3. There is always something to love on Heather from Glitter and Gloss's weekly Three Things Friday posts, but this week, she shares an absolutely hilarious video that includes dancing babies. You have to check it out.

4. The Mister and I have big plans for a living/dining/kitchen remodel this year, but when it's all done and painted, I really want to do a gallery wall in the living room. Chelsea's wall at Hello Miss Chelsea is a great start for inspiration.

5. If you're starting to lose the motivation from your New Year's Resolutions, then check out Caitlin from Healthy Tipping Point's ideas to recharge your fitness routine. Her tips are all small changes that can add up to big differences.

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.

Grab button for FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="FRIDAY-CONFESSIONAL-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 200px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/HighHeeledLove_zps6db62c81.jpg" alt="FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="200" height="256" /> </a> </div>

I confess...

In my book, Indian samosas and a couple glasses of Cava at my favorite restaurant is the ticket to make a cold, mid-week night special.

I need to figure out how to make these things at home.

I confess...

I'm ready for it to be summertime again. Freezing cold mornings are not good for my work ethic; all I want to do is snuggle in my bed and read when it's cold out. Flannel sheets are not helping with this situation.

I confess...

Speaking of work, it feels like things have finally calmed down a bit. I'm still busy, which is good since I'm in sales, but it's not crazy to the point that I don't know how I'll get back to everyone busy.

I confess...

We're a little overwhelmed with bananas in our house right now. It's a result of extras from Brown Box Veggies last weekend. The Mister has been saying all week that he's going to make banana bread, but I might need other ideas to use them up...anybody have any suggestions?


I confess...

On the crochet front, I started a bobble stitch afghan a couple weeks, which will probably keep me occupied for weeks. At least I'm being productive with my television time, but I'm reminded of why I like to make scarves - I can knock them out in a day or two.

That said, here were my favorite reads lately:

1. I am in LOVE with these Vintage Map Pillows, shared by Chic California. When we finish our work in the living room this year, I'll have to try something similar.

2. You can always count on Bonnie from The Life of Bon to give you real on her blog, and I love that she's being real about the struggles she and her husband went through during their first year of marriage. It's heartening to see the conflicts you have in your own marriage are the same as what other couples deal with.

3. I totally loved this post from Kenzie at Life & Lemons, If Life Were Pinterest Perfect. We'd all live in magazine spreads if what we pinned became true life, but I don't think anyone would argue about being inspired by the site.

4. Now that the holidays are over, I think we're all trying to eat a little cleaner. This fresh herb salad, shared by Sarah at What Sarah Knows, looks amazing. It will be even better this summer with fresh herbs from our garden.

I confess...

I splurged on a Fitbit last weekend with some funds I'd received over the holidays. And what I've learned is that I'm way too sedentary. I guess it's not a surprise since I fly a desk at work, but I'd really like to change that. And since I wind up at jujitsu less when work cranks up, I've got to figure out some options for in the office.

I confess...

We were working on some more advanced throws/falls in jujitsu this week, and I surprised myself by being able to go with the fall without any hesitation. When our sensei was demonstrating them, I was thinking to myself "There's no way!" So it was a nice little confidence boost to just be able to fall.

I confess...

The Mister and I have finally decided on a our next home renovation project, and it's going to involve moving some walls. I can't wait to deal with the plaster and drywall dust. Yuck.

In all honesty, though, I am really excited about this project. I will mean a whole new look for the front our house.

I confess...

New home projects mean tightening up the budget in other areas of our life....so we'll definitely be eating in more. I'm looking forward to cooking in the kitchen. Expect more recipe posts.

I confess...

Brown Box Veggies starts again this weekend. I've missed box of local produce over the last month. I know there's going to be butternut squash in the box this weekend, and I can't wait to make some roasted squash soup. Yum!

Easy peezy. Now on to the wine.

Last week, a friend shared a video to my FB page that showed you how to remove a cork from a wine bottle using your shoe (view by visiting the High-Heeled Love FB page). And it got me thinking, what other ways can we get the cork out when we don't have a corkscrew?

Here's what I found.


Another great FB share - this ingenious idea for the kitchen.

The Mister and I have decided that "Best Day of My Life" by American Authors is a great song to start the week on Monday mornings. It's hard not to smile when it's playing.



And since I have to get a cavity filled today as well as complete a bunch of homework, I need the pick me up.

So, here are the rules:

1. Grab the button.
2. Write a little list of your favorite reads this week and why.
3. Link up below and go find some fabulous new ladies to be friends with.


Grab button for WEEKLY ROUND-UP at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="WEEKLY-ROUND-UP-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 250px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/47f1b200-2680-4570-861b-31a2456adb15_zps324769d5.jpg" alt="WEEKLY ROUND-UP at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="250" height="250" /> </a> </div>
That said, here were my favorite reads lately:

1. This post by Kristen from We Are THAT Family about what children hear when we yell really got me thinking. Of course, I don't have children, but I'm sure the affect is the same with other relationships in life...such as our spouses.

2. Before reading Beth's post (Living a Goddess Life) about picking earring for someone's face shape, but it makes a lot of sense...and I'll definitely keep it in mind when choosing gifts in the future.

3. I was thrilled to see that Miss Angie has resurrected her Health NOT to Health NUT blog this month. She started the year off with a quick update since her last post months ago and then followed with her goals for the month. She wrapped the week up by bringing back her linky party Fat Ass Friday, which is a weekly check-in for accountability. I love when my bloggy friends share their progress so we can cheer them on.

4. The Foodie Patootie is quickly becoming my favorite food blog, and last week, she shared a bunch more recipes that I just wanted to drop everything and make. I see these apricot granola bars in our near future.

5. Danielle from Sweet Southern Girl chose the word "be" for 2014, and I totally relate to her reasons for chosing the word. She also talks about why her 2013 word  "savor" didn't wind up working for her, and I totally relate to that as well (though without the personal loss she went through).

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.

Grab button for FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="FRIDAY-CONFESSIONAL-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 200px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/HighHeeledLove_zps6db62c81.jpg" alt="FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="200" height="256" /> </a> </div>

I confess...

Lately, I've really become hooked on crochet projects. (See what I did there?) It started with us deciding to give as many handmade Christmas gives as possible, and now I just keep finding new patterns that I want to try. If this keeps up, I'm either going to giving a lot of "just because" gifts or opening an etsy shop.

Here are a few of my recents works.


I confess...

I have been known to put a scoop of ice cream in my coffee when I run out of flavored creamer...just sayin'.

I confess...

The Mister and I have finally start blogging again at our little garden blog, A Little Seed Grows, which previously hadn't been updated since 2012. He's organized a seed swap this weekend, so I'm hoping to get lots of pictures.

I confess...

I think I've caught the decorating bug for Valentine's Day since I never found time to decorate for Christmas.

Follow Aubrey's board Holiday Style: Valentine's Day on Pinterest.
I confess...

I'm taking a leadership course for work this year that starts on Tuesday, and I have a ton of reading to do for it still. I guess I know how I'll be spending my weekend.
