Confessional. Oh we’re going there.

So, I’m still sort of in word purgatory.

But I give purgatory the middle finger by pulling the following confessions from my vault and spewing these words all over purgatory’s face.

spewwww words…spewwww

A few 10 things about sandyb that you may or may not care about, relate to or know:

1. I have the world’s most pretty cat. She really doesn’t get enough attention on this blog

2. I’ve thought about deleting this blog. More than once.

3. I love the way a pencil case smells.. like new beginnings.

4. I was once a competitive figure skater.

5. I thought about being a food blogger once. The amount of stuff I know about food, cooking and nutrition is outrageous.

6. I’m a magazine editor by day.

7. I also teach yoga. Seriously.

8. I appeared on a home renovation show.

9. I co-founded a yoga-thon event that raised over $100,000 this year.

10. My father left us when I was 19. But forgiveness is more powerful than anger. He still walked me down the aisle.

11. I love my sister more than my left arm (and we’re pretty close, me and the arm). I am a lucky girl to have my sister.

12. I really am going through a reinvention right now, and some days are harder than others. Today was one of them.

13. I smile when people comment on my blog or email me that they can relate to something I wrote. I am always humbled.

14. More than death, I fear complacency.

15. Lately, I’ve had a few regrets.

16. I’m trying to not feel so bad about #15.

17. I wear my wedding dress on my birthday because it makes me laugh. And I look damn good in it.

18. I blush when people tell me they read my stuff, online and in print.

19. I’m hard on the outside, and soft in the middle. (that’s actually a lot deeper than it sounds.)

20. My husband does my laundry. Don’t hate me.. you’re just jealous.

21. My right boob is bigger than my left. (oh what, yours isn’t?)

22. Sometimes crying out loud is just necessary.

23. My mother is a breast cancer survivor.

24. I think too much.

25. I can speak Portuguese.

26. I don’t apologize for swearing. Sometimes “fuck” just sums it up.

27. In the next few days, I will add something else to my List.

28. Someday I want kids. But no time soon. They scare me.

29. I’m five minutes late everywhere I go. On a good day.

30. My dream in life is to be “discovered”.. I just hope I’m wearing something totally dope if/when it happens.

31. I have a girl crush on Megan Fox. Judge me, I don’t care.

32. I’ve been asked to write an advice column.

..But.. I dunno.  Can I? Thought it might be good practice if you send me your Qs first, just to get my feet wet, k? (

So, tell me about YOU.

    I love your kitty cat- so lovely! I also love your #14- good for you.
    I spend little to no time reading blogs but make time to catch yours when I can, so here’s something in the name of practice for you- when do you introduce the new man to the parentals? Not a concern of mine personally, but a q I myself just fielded… Do tell.

  2. 1.) Aww your cat is cute. I’m usually not a cat person, but I worked in a lab where everybody had one, so I kept my mouth shut about cats so I wouldn’t get shunned from the group. Eventually they grew on me.

    2.) I’m considering deleting my blog when I get my professional career started. We’ll see. I might just start another one up. An anonymous one for sure if I do.

    14.) Death used to be the scariest thing to me when I was a kid. Now that I’ve grown up, death doesn’t seem so scary. I’m more afraid of not making something of myself.

  3. I’m so glad you haven’t deleted your blog! I absolutely adore reading it (and — eep, stalker alert! — have been going through the archives.) Your reinvention is an inspiration.

    I love the ‘Advice Column’ idea….perfect! Do it!

  5. Not just a pretty face but a multi-talented blogger! I read your blog – feel free to blush now 😉
