Let's Be Honest... I'm Probably on the Naughty List

OK people, it's time for a dose of honesty around here. I need to fess up. I'm probably on the naughty list. And let's get real... you probably are too.

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about all of the little things I do on a regular basis that aren't exactly ethical, moral, and/or legal. Such as... 

Sampling from the Bulk Bin 

I'm the worst at this. I can't go into Wegmans without dipping my fingers into a bin of gummy worms & sampling a few. I boldly stare at the sign that says "NO SAMPLING" & do it anyway. #improbablygoingtohell 


I'm a lot better about this now that I have Ella. But I still do it... 

Hiding Purchases 

Ummm, I hope I'm not the only one that does this, but I often race home to get the packages off the porch before Eric gets home so that he doesn't see what I've ordered. Christmas has been especially rough, as I've just told him he's not allowed to open anything because it might be a gift for him. He's smart enough to know better though... that's how he discovered my new J.Crew jacket. #balls

Call In "Sick" 

I don't do this very often, but I do do it occasionally. I've found that it's even easier to do now that I have Ella too, because no one questions when I call in & say, "Sorry, I won't be in today. Ella isn't feeling well." No one questions an 18 month old! They all say, "OK, I hope she gets feeling better." It's too easy & I fight the temptation all of the time! 

And the list could go on & on... 

What could land you on the naughty list? 


  1. I always wonder if I'll become a better and more careful driver when I have kids. And in college my roommate used to put grapes in her cart first in the grocery store and then we'd eat them the whole time we shopped. That's legit stealing but we got into the habit and no one ever said anything!
