Friday Confessional

I was over at Glamazon Mormon Mom's blog reading her Friday Confessionals, which you really should check out.


I commented and she sent me an e-mail in which she called me her 'wholesome friend' and while I will happily accept this term; as yeah I'll admit it I live a very clean life, it got me thinking...

So this is my Friday Confessional of the teenage/college years.
  • I got grounded for being in the wrong state once.
  • While in high school I took four or five out of state trips to visit different boys I liked or was dating
  • When I received my Young Women's Medallion (similar to the Eagle Scout award that boys get), my Young Women's leader began her talk by saying... 'there were a few years where we really worried about Emily'
  • One of my best friends in high school gave me the nickname of 'Demiliy'--a mix of Devil and Emily
  • I successfully or semi-successfully did the best-friend swap... i.e. I was dating one guy, broke up with him to date his best friend
  • I honestly cannot remember how many guys I kissed before Eric (wow.. I am starting to worry about Alex and teenage hormones now!)
  • My freshmen year of college my best friend and I would run through the lobby's of Dessert Towers (i.e. the freshmen dorms) in our pajamas. We were known as the pajama runners.
  • And well.. I think I will stop right there as I don't want to totally ruin my wholesome image (and my parents read my blog)!
So I guess this all goes to prove that anyone can change and can become the 'wholesome friend' if you really try. :)

So confess to whatever it may be this week and go link up with Glamazon Mormon Mom!

  18. I can't say that these things sound terrible - because I've done several of them. :) Only I saved my traveling to other states for boyfriends/boys I liked for college and just after college. I now realize what a waste of time, money and gas that was!
