Things I Do When No One’s Around

Humpday Confessions, Ryan Gosling

It’s my favorite time of the week – time for Humpday Confessions with Kathy! This week, I thought I’d let you in on a few things that I love to indulge in during my awesome me time.

I confess that when no one is around I . . .

Have a dance party!

I love to dance! I dance when I’m alone in the car (putting on one hell of a show for other drivers). And when I’m home alone I turn up the music and boogie my not-so little butt around the house, while my dogs wonder what the hell I’m doing.

Things I do When No One is Around, Dance

Have conversations with my dog.

Working from home has taught me that pajamas are the best kind of work clothes and dogs are the best listeners! I can sit there and have a full conversation with my pups about anything from how crazy people are (I am exhibit A) to what I should make for dinner. Am I the only one who loves pretending to be the dog whisperer?


Sleeping is pretty much my favorite hobby. I was born to sleep and no one can stop me! So when I’m home alone, of course I’m going to throw in a couple of naps.

Things I Do When No One is Around, Nap

Pin all the things.

I always go to Pinterest with the intention of only glancing for a few moments. Before I know it, it’s 3 hours later and I just can’t stop pinning. There’s got to be a support group for this.

Things I Do When No One is Around


Being home alone means that I have time to plan EVERYTHING. I plan my dream vacations, my schedule, meals for the week, blog posts, and more. Now, I just need to learn to stick to the plan.


Being home alone means that I have the ability to creep on people online without being judged, except now all of you are judging me. Oh, well. I have no shame! And social media has definitely made it that much easier to be a creeper. Thank you over-sharers!

Things I do When No One is Home, Creep

What kind of things do you do when no one is around?

  • kathy@vodka and soda

    hahhah creeping is one of my fav things to do. oh, and so is grooming my lady stache. that shizz needs to go.

    thanks for linking up!

    Vodka and Soda

    • Haha! Yes, I also some lady grooming when I’m home alone. πŸ˜€ No one needs to see that shizz!

  • i love to plan too!! πŸ™‚ obsessed with planning all the things. also, i love to have a little dance party, though the above two leave little room for naps. haha.

  • Amy

    So funny! I definitely do most of those things when I am home alone! I like to binge on junk food and bad TV!

    • Yes!!! I love to binge watch reality TV shows and eat junk food. It’s all about the guilty pleasures.

  • All of these things. Especially napping…

    • Napping is pretty much the best thing ever. Adults should definitely have a nap time.

  • I catch up on the Real Housewives when I’m home alone…so as not to torture P with watching it. A good nap is always nice too! I’m proud and out-loud with my Pinterest addiction so that is alone or in the car or while watching TV or in the middle of the night πŸ˜‰

    • Pinterest for the win! πŸ™‚ I also enjoy a good round of reality TV when I’m home alone. I’m sure Troy appreciates me waiting until he’s gone. Hah.

  • Yes to dance parties and naps! Just yes.

  • Kelli

    Read a book and enjoy the silence, me time doesn’t happen very often here though!

    • Yes to books and silence! I inhale books when I’m home alone. Troy tells me that’s why I can’t buy books. They’re done in a day.

  • I love creeping. While I can’t stand the over-sharing of certain people most of the time, sometimes I just dive in head first and creep excessively on their craziness! I also love that dog- that is hilarious!

    • Haha! Yes, sometimes all the over-sharing can be a bit much, but that doesn’t stop me from creeping on them. Hey, if they’re going to post every detail about their lives the least I can do is creep. πŸ™‚

  • I totally do all of these things!!! Well, except I try to keep my napping at a minimum. I have a hard time sleeping at night if I napped during the day. Unless it is Sunday. Then nap nap nap away!

    • Oh, I wish I could nap all day on Sundays, but I work. Sundays are my favorite days to be lazy.

  • Hahah I do all of these things ! Especially pinning, it’s the worst! Also clearing out the DVR of all my “girl” shows and singing lol.

    • Hah! Yes, I tend to sing while I’m having my dance party. I’m sure Troy appreciates the fact that I wait until he’s gone to belt out all the songs I love.

  • Em

    OMG yes! Dance party to the max! Like I’m talking all throughout the house, ridiculously choreographed moves. Highlight of my days home alone.

    • I love when people bust out the choreographed moves! I just may have a few of my own. Haha. It’s the little things in life. πŸ˜€

  • I do all this things!!! LetΒ΄s be weird together!!! Hahahaha

    • Haha! Yes! So glad I’m not the only weird one around. πŸ™‚ We can have big dance parties!

  • I have three or four dream trips planned, down to each day’s excursions! Now to win the lotto so I can afford to go…

    • Oh, yes. Money always seems to be the issue. We just need to win the lotto and spend our time traveling and having dance parties.

  • LOL!! Omg I love the last photo haha!! So funny!! And dancing is awesome!! Pets are the best listeners too. I swear I love my cats more than people!! Just sayin’! πŸ˜‰ xx


    • Yes! I totally love my dogs more than people. They just get me. Plus, they’re so much nicer than a lot of people. πŸ˜€

    • Oh I couldnt agree more!! xo

  • Ohhh I am a total closet creeper!!!

    • I think in the day of social media we are all complete closet creepers. πŸ™‚ It’s the cool thing to do nowadays.

  • Is blogging your FT gig, or do you have another gig from home? I want that gig! When I’m home alone, I walk around in my underwear a lot. Love doing that.

    • I am a phone ESL teacher, so I get to work from home in my pajamas. πŸ™‚ I get to spend most of my days in my pajamas or walking around half naked. Total win! πŸ˜€

  • Amanda

    Oh guuuurlllll… I talk to my dog all day erryday! He’s a very good listener. πŸ™‚

    • Oh, yes! Dogs are definitely great listeners. And they never interrupt! πŸ™‚

  • I am a pinterest addict. My dog is the best listener ever. Except when I tell him no, then he ignores me.

  • I talk to my dogs while we are walking. I’m like “really, you just ate that” or “come on, that patch of grass has been sniffed enough”. Hahaha.

    • Heh! I do that too! Or when we’re outside in the backyard I’ll be like “really, must you try to talk to all the other dogs in the neighborhood.” I swear they’re reenacting the scene from 101 Dalmatians!

  • Michael

    HAHA That last picture is a classic! I’m with you on the dance party though! Friday nights are reserved for that since the bf is at the gym with the guys. It’s one of my favorite nights of the week.

    • Nice! Friday nights are the perfect time for a dance party. Such a great way to start the weekend! πŸ˜€

  • My mom and I always talk to our dog Boomer. The other day she was talking to him and he was outside…I had to point that out to her, but it’s definitely second nature now! Also naps are awesome πŸ™‚

    • Hah! I talk to my dog in public all the time! I’m sure people think I’m the crazy dog lady. πŸ™‚

  • haha, love these! i really should stop spending time on pinterest, talk about totally pin-envy!

    • Yes! Pin envy is totally a thing! I think we all need to step away from the computer, cell phone, etc from time to time. It’s good for us. πŸ™‚

  • bahahahahaha sorry for being late to the party but I definitely creep as well πŸ™‚

    • Hah! Yes, I’m sure Mark appreciates your awesome creeping skills! πŸ˜€

  • Lynsey I swear you and me are the same person sometimes. I too have dance parties and my conversations with my cat are so involved that they often include me either asking him why he didn’t vacuum like he said he would or thanking him for doing the dishes when I arrive home to an empty sink. Yeah. It gets weird up in here.

    • Bahaha. I wouldn’t expect anything less than some weirdness in your place! I’ll ask my dogs what they want to do today or why they’re so lazy. πŸ˜€

  • Wow. I do most of these. No dogs to talk to though. I want to join in this. It looks like fun!

    • Maybe you can make friends with a nice stray dog or neighbor dog. They do so love attention! They make great listeners and I’m sure they’d love hearing you sing along to musicals! πŸ˜€
