Confessional Friday

I confess…
Last night I saw the movie 42. It was a great movie and I’d highly recommend it. It’s got a nice romantic side plot and if you’re a Grey’s Anatomy fan, several cast members make appearances (George!).
The confessional part of this statement? A word I have never said, nor will ever say is thrown around A LOT. It makes me uncomfortable every single time. And I left the theater feeling ashamed/sad/angry that segregation is not only a part of American history, but my own cultural history. In other words, I felt bad about being white.
It was hard not to make the connection that my feelings leaving the theater are exactly how people will feel about gay marriage in the future. We WILL be ashamed. It made me feel that I should be doing something to fight for love.
I was filling out medical forms yesterday and had to check the “marital status: single” box. We aren’t married. But I’m not single. As I suggested on twitter, we need a “livin’ in sin” box. Or my favorite suggestion, “getting the milk for free.” Thanks for that one Valerie!
I’m back to hating my bangs again.
The Passionfruit Marketplace is my new favorite place to find blogs. Yes, I like checking out places I could advertise. But I also love how organized and prettyful (not a word but I use it anyway) it is. 
The beau finished his Certified Financial Planner classes this week. Proud doesn’t begin to describe how I feel about him. Nav, you are going to great things. I love you.
Our dog is too friendly. Another night of intermediate dog classes has proven that. 
Easily distracted and way too friendly. But he loves kids. Loves them. It makes my heart happy.

  • I can’t wait to see this movie!! And it’s sad that we can still find racism if we look for it… But majority of people are not like that, and you’re not, so don’t feel guilty!

    And the milk thing cracked me up hahaha have a great weekend!

  • my cousin and I want to go see “Movie 42”. Good to know that you enjoyed it.

  • Congrats to your man, your pup of course is super cute, and YES! The Passionfruit marketplace is WONDERFUL! 🙂

  • how stinkin cute are you in that photo.
    I think you rock those bangs!

  • I haven’t heard of that movie so I’ll have to take a look to see what it is!

  • yay Nav!! and I agree with everything you said. come on peeps!

  • “Livin’ in sin!” made me laugh so hard. Congrats to the beau, financial planning is something I will never understand so I assume he’s really, really ridiculously smart!

  • congrats to nav! so exciting! and i’ve heard good things about that movie, i want to see it, but i’m sure i’ll feel similarly!

    aww you’re lucky that archie loves kids! our pup is TERRIFIED of kids. not cool!

  • Congrats to Nav! I hate checking the “single” box.. we’ve been together over 6 years and living together almost 5 so we are almost common-law married (if that existed in MD)…when I ran into health insurance issues I wanted to switch to Chris’ because he has great state benefits but couldn’t since we aren’t married. Dumb!

  • Haha, the livin in sin box would be so awesome!!!! I lived with my hubby for 5 years before we were married, that would have been so great to have that box to check!!!!

    Have a fabulous weekend!!

  • I totally love scrolling the passionfruit marketplace for the same reason! Right there with ya! I wanna go see 42, good to hear you thought it was good!!

  • Better to have a dog that’s too friendly rather than one who isn’t! Our dog gets cranky around strangers sometimes, and she’s afraid of children. Awesome. But congrats to your guy! And don’t feel guilty! As long as you are participating or supporting the wrong cause then you have nothing to feel guilty about!

  • Ha! The “livin in sin” box cracked me up.

  • Livin in sin box- too funny!

  • I love your bags, so pretty!

    Sparkles and Shoes

  • i literally laughed out loud when you said “you feel bad being white” I laughed because you shouldn’t feel bad, yes that was a part of our American History, but thats what it is, history. Yes there are some people that still have the same views, but I dont think you should feel bad about it. Anywho, I can’t wait to see that movie, I was a huge fan of Jackie Robinson when I was little because he was a Georgian, like me, and I am so glad they finally made a movie about him!

    Anywho…”livin’ in sin” cracked me up too! You heathen! lol j/k

    Have a great weekend!


  • I agree with you so much about wanting to do more for love. In 40 years I don’t want to say that I didn’t do anything to stop this foolishness. I am glad you liked that movie, I really want to see it.
    And Gettin’ the milk for free is my new favorite thing. I want to start writing that in on my forms.

  • Yay so glad you liked the movie! Now I need to convince LoLo to go see it with me… 🙂

  • LOVE your blog! I am a new follower!
    Love Me, Dani Marie
