confessions of a divalicious mama

I confess diamonds really are a girls best friend.

I say this because this week I won a pair of diamond earrings. For free in a fb contest I entered the day before the contest ended.

I confess as much as love them, I might have felt a few seconds of guilt. I could have won anything in the store but thought hey, I want something expensive (the price limit was $3000) . The most expensive TV was only $800 and besides, no one is buying me diamonds, we would however, get new tvs as needed.

I confess the tv in the loft is not a flat screen. Neither is the one in my bedroom. They work, they have cable, we don't need flat screens. I do need diamonds.

I confess...i'm surprised how many friends said I deserved to win the earrings. Feeling the love.

I confess I might have asked how much they would get me if I turned around and pawned them? Only 300 to 500 bucks. Never gonna happen. Who would do that? Although, that's how these earrings came to be @ the store.

I confess as magical as winning made my week it didn't combat the frustration of dealing with 3 girls screaming and crying and fighting with eachother, a boy bawling about the girls calling him names and maybe exchanging punches, and waking up a tired baby. Seriously, nothing is magical enough to combat that.

Maybe xanax? Valium? Darn it I don't have any of those. :(

i confess chocolate and project runway allstars did boost my mood once the crying and chaos died down.

I confess it was like pulling teeth to get 35 friends to vote for me on fb. Everyone thinks I have so many friends it should be super easy to win a contest, that is not the case.

You know who was the most free with the votes? My blog friends. Thanks guys! You made this divalicious mama happy! And brightened my whole week.
