Instagram photo by thealisonshow - There's a fine line between being honest and open on social media and sounding whiny and in need of validation. I was feeling sucky scrolling through IG and I thought, "if I feel like this other people feel like this." So I just wanted to say, you're not alone. I look at pictures and think, "I suck, I suck, I suck." But I don't mean for that to come across as "oh I feel sorry for myself" and you should validate me. Because 1. I learned long ago if you use social media to get validation you WILL BE MISERABLE and 2. I don't feel sorry for myself. I just like putting feelings out there that are universal. I just feel sorry that it's SO DAMN easy to get down on ourselves. I don't want anyone to think they suck when they look at my pictures. But Eric keeps telling me I can't control how people feel. So I just have to do my best to be nice and let it go. But I want you all to know if I was in charge of the feelings they would be AWESOME. The trees are from Hobby Lobby and Michael's, but I just ordered more from factorydirectcraft.com because I needed MORE. And FYI The ones you find with the plastic bases don't bleach well. These have all been bleached for different lengths of time. NOW HAPPY SUNDAY. and we all don't suck. Only the trees with plastic bases suck.

thealisonshow - Alison Faulkner @katlinehan it's all in the course I believe! But if you want PEAK bake cookies on Tuesday, decorate tues/wed/ wed night. You could even bake on Monday and be good! Have fun!

k_perkins4 - k_perkins4 @amyabcd here are some fun ideas for a kids Thanksgiving table!
Instagram photo by thealisonshow - At 4pm I started telling the kids that, "wow it's getting late and just about time for dinner and bed." By 5pm they'd eaten, and I started getting out pj's. By 5:45 Rad was in bed and at 6pm Ginger begged and pleaded to watch one more show?! (20 minutes) so I reluctantly said yes, pointing out it was WAAAAAAY past her bedtime (it's her own fault she can't tell time) At 6:30 she was in jammies with teeth brushed. 6:35 IN BED FOR THE NIGHT! Long story short? I AM A GENIUS! Winter has it's perks! I'm already in sweats and my @saranoniblanket and you guys this is not an ad I'm so in love with this blanket. This is a public service announcement. It's heavy and drapes like a robe. Yes, like the robe of a queen. 👸 If you've talked to me in the last week it's basically all I talk about. I carry it around like Linus. Anyway I just really felt like the early bedtime victory warranted a smug selfie.  I'm gonna watch Netflix until the auto-play stops and asks "are you still watching?" Which I usually find insulting and swear at the TV to stop judging me. But not tonight!! 🐆💃🐆

And I can now say I've swum in confetti so the gap between me and Katy Perry closed just a tiny bit, right?!
