Weekend Confessions + Vlog with Rachel

weekend confessions

Confession #1: I miss blogging more often, and I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting very much lately!

Confession #2: I also don’t feel that guilty for not posting, because school is happenin’ and so is friend time. I love blogging, but it can be hard to choose screen time over a night out with friends, ya know?

Confession #3: I wore shorts and a tank top on November 5th in Boston, Massachusetts. HAHA. I was wearing my marshmallow coat three weeks ago. What are seasons?


like, MAYBE, who knows now?

Confession #4: Rachel and I decided to have best friend day on Saturday and made sure the whole world knew about it on Snapchat.


Confession #5: We could not stop saying “mmm” and “WOW” and “I can’t even” while eating this sandwich from Cutty’s (on our food bucket list!).


It’s called the “Roast Beef 1000” (slow-roasted beef, thousand island sauce, frizzled onions, and sharp cheddar on a brioche bun). Yeah.

We also both ordered the vegetable of the day, which was hot ‘n’ sour brussels sprouts. Also “mmmmm”-worthy.

Guy Fieri was there!

Confession #6: We were so inspired by the brussels sprouts from lunch that we bought two bags of brussels sprouts from the grocery store, roasted them in the communal kitchen after dinner, and ate a whole tray of them within 15 minutes of them coming out of the oven.

sort of based on Arman’s balsamic brussels

Confession #7: Before our brussels extravaganza, Rachel and I were workout buddies. Except that we didn’t work out together.

We ran to the workout pad that I always go to, and while she continued running, I stopped and did six rounds of this workout until she ran back.

Confession #8: I’ve finished 5 large (32+ ounce) jars of peanut butter this semester. It’s fine.

My sixth jar may or may not last until Thanksgiving. I’m erring on the side of not.

Confession #9: I put Sriracha on everything.

Soon I’ll be mixing it with peanut butter.

Confession #10: Rachel and I filmed a VLOG! You’ve seen a couple vlogs with Daliza, my best friend from home, so I thought it would be fun to film one with best friend who I met at college 🙂

This is a “best friend tag” vlog. Basically, how well do we know each other? Quirks? What’s annoying about the other? Who do we have a CRUSH ON!?

Here’s the link in case the embedded video isn’t working (and if you still want to watch it). In case my fellow bloggers want to play along with their BFF or significant other, here are the questions!

How and when did you two meet?

Who is your best friend’s hero?

If your best friend could go any place on earth, where would it be and why?

What is the name of your crush?

What is your best friend’s biggest fear?

If your best friend was deserted on an island, what three items would he/she want to have?

What part of your best friend’s body is his/her favorite?

What are two things about you that your best friend doesn’t know?

How would you describe your best friend’s ideal spouse?

What is a weird quirk about your best friend?

What are three things you would never fail to find in your best friend’s refrigerator?

What is your favorite memory together?

What is one thing about your best friend that annoys you?

Does your best friend have any nicknames?

What would your best friend do if he/she won the lottery?

Can you describe your best friend in one word?

What would your best friend say he/she admires most in you?

Sorry it’s kinda long. Just promise me you’ll watch Rachel’s face at 4:09.

She’s gonna kill me.

Hope you all have a fabulous week! Tell your good friends/family members that you love them.

So tell me:

What is one “confession” you have from the weekend?

Have you ever eaten a whole pan/pot of something in one sitting?

What is the best thing you’ve eaten recently?

If you were deserted on an island, which three items would you want to have?

  1. I’ve missed seeing your face around these parts too! But I’m glad to hear that you’re having a blasty blast in TRL, and at least I still get to stalk you on Snapchat 😛 And I’ve definitely puta way a whole pan of roasted veggies in a single sitting. Multiple times. I have a weakness for those things, and I’ll risk the potential veggie food baby for it.

  2. Confession: I spent an entire day in my pajamas. It was a weekday. My best excuse is that I’m doing NaNoWriMo (which means I’m trying to write a 50,000 word novel in a month) and trying to juggle a crazy life schedule, which means something is going to fall through the cracks. Like getting dressed. 😜

  3. I need to show you my Christmas photos growing up. It’s like…all sun haha. Can you guys send me your stomachs of steel? I think brussels hate me. Or they just hate beautiful people.

    Weekend confession…I took a shower because I was cold. I’d taken a shower earlier before. 😀

  4. Aw man I love you two!!!
    And lots of good stuff happening over there in your neck of the woods/city;)
    Hmm confession is that I was super lazy this weekend and had to clean so I kinda just cleaned the obvious (as in , move that lamp half an inch and you’ll see all the dust)
    Have a great one Alison!!!!!! Ive missed you but real life is worth it 👍🏼😘

  5. I miss you blogging too, but I realize how busy school is! I am having a STRESSFUL semester, so I am right there with ya girl.

    I’m SO going to do this with Emily!!!! 🙂
    I cannot watch the video right now because I am in class (gold star student right here) but when I am back in my room I will watch!

  6. Haha be glad that 32 oz jar can even last you over a week! As a recovering girl from an eating disorder, I’m still in the weight gain process so I’m eating 2 pounds every 6-7 days. And I can honestly say that I’m not guilty at all. Nut butters are soooo good!

  7. You two are adorable!!! Loved the video. Please send some of those brussel sprouts over to Texas.
    Had some vegetarian Ethiopian goodness this past weekend. Injera bread. Enough said. .
    Weekend confession: Break-mode was on a couple of weeks too early. Whoops!

  8. People who burpee are amazing. Those are one of my hardest exercises. 🙂 And the peanut butter consumption? YES! We eat so much peanut butter here.

    The seasons have been so weird here. In a lot of ways, it’s been so nice because we’ve actually had a FALL! 🙂 I’m thanking God for every day that we’ve been able to see the leaves change without snow freezing the leaves off. We haven’t really had any snow, maybe one day. It usually snows at least the first week in October. O_O

  9. your recent post won’t let me comment…is it because I just sent you mean texts?

    I think you are very self aware and as much as society, the media, BLOGS even try to portray a sense of sunshine and rainbows 24/7- That’s not reality. I think it’s okay to have all those feelings concurrently and some worry can be healthy so I think you’re on the right path- Especially after the solid report last week 🙂

    Also. buttered toast. Legit. Except for that goose who made me buy margaine.

Your comments are groovy!
