i confess...

Vodka and Soda

i confess.....


  • that i hated nick so much that i couldn't even watch the bachelorette anymore and i looked up on reality steve who won so i could stop watching.  i did this at like week, 6.  it hurt me to watch him. i couldn't. and now i hear about what he did on ATFR and what he said to her and made public on national tv and i'm like, oooooookayyyyyy...... you're a #*$.  i like josh and i am glad that she picked him.  and i have learned that you should just never listen to the tabloids when they tell you that the couple has broken up.  follow their instagram!!! news from the source!  andi's instagram, josh's instagram.
  • speaking of ian somerhalder, ^^ i think he is one of the greatest and most underrated actors.  maybe i am just blinded by his good looks?  i don't know. 
  • i had a dream last night that taran and i finally were able to go visit NYC but we were only there for a few hours because of a layover and his family met us and we were all staying in this tiny little apartment that still looked too big to be an NYC apartment that we could afford and there were a lot of sleeping babies on couches that i didn't know.  i think we were sharing the apartment with another family?  and then i ran into someone random that i kind of know and hadn't really thought about in years. isn't it weird when you dream about those people?
  • i confess that i have been having a hard time figuring out what to write about here lately and am super glad that i have this confessional linkup today because this is easy and fun.  there are things that i want to write about and things that are written that are sitting in my drafts that i haven't published because now that i have almost 700 followers i am nervous.  i am thinking more about what i write than i ever have because i don't want to lose any of you.  also, less than 10% of my followers read my blog.  so............ does everyone else have this problem??? i average about 35 reads for each post, unless it's a linkup.  is this how it is for everyone?



  • i confess that if you are following me on instagram, i really am sorry for all the pictures i have been posting of my new nephew.  introducing isaac adam.  born july 23, 4:12 pm, 8 lbs 10 oz.  one week old today! middle name named after his father!  i have been posting pictures of his like nobody's biznasss because i just can't help it.  i mean, look at him.  look at him!! how am i not supposed to post pictures of him several times a day?! it's impossible!! look at his dreamy eyes!! look at his cheeks!! look how perfect!!! i am so head over heels in love.

linking up with kathy.

  1. i dont know if ian somerhalder is a good actor but i'm always blinded by his humpable face so it's hard to tell! i can't even remember him as Boone on Lost so maybe not? that's ok, he's pretty :D

    thanks for linking up!

  2. ooh those pictures are too sweet! I missed the finale, but I heard all about what Nick did. why would you do that to someone you claimed to care about? I also never liked him, he just seemed like he wanted to be the next Bachelor the whole time.

  3. Ian Somerhalder is a good actor and actively involved in the community and raising money for special causes!

  4. Not to be a downer, but followers do not equal readers. In my opinion, you just have to be you and put yourself out there and write something worth reading and hope there are enough people paying attention. Also summer as a whole is really slow for both reading and commenting and a lot of my favorites are getting burnt out. So, all of that to say, write for you, not for the 700 people who may or may not be listening...

    1. you're not being a downer at all! you are being helpful!! it is good to hear that and i need to do better at just enjoying writing the content instead of being so worried about who is reading it and how many people are reading it.

  5. So with you on Nick, I honestly thought she was going to pick him so I was shocked when she kicked him off. Good move Andi!

    And yeah unfortunately followers does not always equal readers. It's hard to find quality followers just like it's hard to find quality friends. I've learned to just stop caring (well as much as I can) and just write what I want to. If they come and read then great, if not so be it!

  6. Such a cute baby!!! p.s. Completely agree Nick is a JERK! And Ian Somerhalder should rule the world. That is all.

  7. That is one freaking cute baby!

    Nick is the worst. Seriously needs a stint in a psych ward.

    And yes, I have that problem with the reader/follower thing too. I have about 1100 followers and average about 100-150 views per post. So 10% sounds about right!

  10. Awwww your nephew is adorable :)

    And I really REALLY hated Nick, but I'll be honest--my opinion of him changed on the After the Rose special. I really REALLY felt so sorry for him. It was obvious he had fallen for her, and granted, probably NOT right for him to admit that they slept together, but she denied him the chance to speak in private on two separate occasions, so I'm not sure why she was crying foul for bringing that up on live TV. I dunno...

    Anyway, don't worry--it's the summer and I feel like lots of people are taking a break from their own blogs. And I average about the same views/post as you do.

    1. yeah, i know that he had his heart broken, it is sad, i think it is all just a messy situation that it makes it difficult for it to be handled maturely. and thank you for your encouraging words!!

  11. Haha, glad I'm not the only one who gave up on the Bachelorette this time. ;) Except my reason was Andi. Remember Sharleen from Juan Pablo's season? She has a blog where she posts recaps and I looove her, so I always read those and she just loves Nick. Perplexes me greatly because I'm gathering she's the only one. O_O So when I watched the finale, I expected to like him and I didn't--he could not even form sentences and it was rather annoying... ;)
