Friday Confessional – Grey Style


Happy Friday everyone! I still have one more little Saturday morning work day to get through before I can declare it the weekend! But you all celebrate for me tonight, ok?

Today I’m opening up and confessing to you all what’s been on my mind. Lately, that is all 50 Shades of Grey!

I confess…I have fallen. I have fallen hard for Mr. Christian Grey. I packed the first of the books on my honeymoon and was finished it in 24 hours!

I confess…that I sighed a huge sigh of relief when I was able to download the other two! I couldn’t read anything else that week!

I confess…that I didn’t know Ryan was reading over my shoulder on the plane. He really startled me (and made me blush) when he yelled, “WOAH”! It was a really juicy part. :-)

I confess…I was actually glad that I have a kindle so no one on the beach knew what I was reading. Once in a while I would whisper to Ryan, “Look, she’s reading 50 Shades! Omg, I know what she’s reading about…” and then proceed to giggle.

I confess…My favorite of the books is book 3, Fifty Shades Freed. I didn’t realize this until midnight last night when I looked at the time and realized I had been reading for 3 hours straight. Yikes!

I confess…I cannot pin point an actor to fill the roll of Christian. No actor compares to the man I imagine in my head.

I confess…Anastasia’s character in my head always has a scary resemblance to myself, weird! ;)  

I confess…I literally jump full tilt at my Dad when he suggests downloading the series and reading it to figure out what all the hype is about. I just blush thinking about my Dad reading 50 Shades and realizing what I’ve been reading! Eeek!

I confess…it is was a really good idea to read this series on my honeymoon!

I confess…That I want to have a supplemental book club meeting just so we can all sit around to talk and giggle about the 50 Shades trilogy. I think we might also need to include wine in this meeting.

I confess…I looked up and saw a helicopter the other day. I jabbed Ryan in the ribs and said, “Do you think that’s Charlie Tango”? He just looked at me weird.

I confess…that I have REALLY stretch out the 3rd book. I thought it was because I wasn’t enjoying it as much when it reality it’s my fear of being done. What am I going to read now? Bah!


Happy Friday!



  1. OMG! I was depressed when I finished them! Let me know when you are done and we can discuss. No one I know has finished all 3 yet and it is KILLING me! Also, Christian has dark hair in my head, not copper, so I'm hoping they fix that for the movie, which I will be seeing 12,000 times.

  2. I think I have heard enough now. I think everyone I know has read these turn. Some steamy reading for a hot summer?

  3. Ohhhh Christian! I cannot get enough... As you know, he's Ian Somerhalder in my head, and I just can't seem to picture anyone else! I'm DEFINITELY in for a supplemental book club AND wine!!!! :)
    Oh, and like you with the Charlie cousin Erin was saying how her friends all joke about "Taylor" picking them up and driving them around! haha!!

  4. hahahahahaha! Ok so I'm reading it too... OMG. And yes Mark was reading over my shoulder on the plane and looked at me like what in the world are you reading :). I have to admit one point it actually made me embarrassed and I put it away for about a week or so. I've since picked it back up.

  5. omg it was amazing.. ive read it twice.. and now im lost. i wanna read it again.. dont know its thats a little ott

  6. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
    tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Feel free to visit my blog

  7. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Look at my blog; computer parts list with price

  8. Heya just happened upon your blog via Yahoo
    after I typed in, "Blogger: Small Town Kind of Life" or something similar (can't quite remember exactly). Anyways, I'm
    happy I found it because your subject material is exactly what I'm looking for (writing a college paper) and I hope you don't mind if I collect some
    information from here and I will of course credit you as the reference.
    Thanks for your time.
