A Little More Imperfect

Oh, hey, blog. It's been awhile since I took two full days away from you. It felt weird, but also like a weight off my shoulders. I just didn't have anything to write and didn't have the energy to write, so I didn't! And look, my blog is still here and hopefully you are too. To be honest, the past week has taken a toll on me. I've been so exhausted- to the point that I fell asleep half-sitting-up Wednesday night for a solid twenty minutes or so. Yes, Jared caught a picture of it. No, it will not be posted here.

So anyway, I wanted to focus on some awesome stuff this Friday, and get you up-to-speed on my super exciting life.

1. One thing I AM super excited about it this weekend. My mom and I are going to the Extraordinary Women's conference tonight and tomorrow and we've been looking forward to it for a long time now. I am really excited to hear some amazing speakers, talented musicians and spending that quality time with my mom!

2. We are just a few days away from April, which is my very favorite month of the year. My birthday is in April andddd it happens to fall right on Easter this year, my favorite holiday! I already have so many fun things planned with family and friends so I know this April is going to be one for the books. I might just disappear from this blog completely for awhile with all the fun I'll be having. ;)

3. Sweet things from sweet bloggers. Jasmine knows I'm probably going through Disney withdrawal (still) and sent me the cutest headband to rock on my long runs! It's perfect for holding back these crazy bangs and baby hairs, and obviously anything with Mickey on it is a winner for me. You can check out her Etsy shop here and see all her designs!


4. Jared. Bless his heart, he's really the absolute best. We have our ups and downs like any couple, but he gets me and I love love LOVE being his wife. Sorry, I didn't warn you I was getting mushy today, but sometimes it just sneaks out of me. Even with my 17 nervous breakdowns this past week, Jared can always put a smile on my face and remind me that life truly is good.

5. Life is good, I said! Life is messy, imperfect, crazy and sometimes downright ugly- but life is still a precious gift that I want to embrace. Last weekend Kayla and I got a little picture-crazy and laughed until we cried over some outtakes we shot. Please note, it was much colder and windier than we anticipated.
Apparently footballs are VERY funny
It got us talking about how we wish everyone could just relax a little more... lighten up, act silly, not care what people are thinking! My life is not glamorous at all, not even close to it, but I LOVE IT! There are dirty dishes in our kitchen, I'm not at my goal weight yet and my job is making me insane right now. I have nothing to hide, yet nothing to gain by only showing the 'picture-worthy' parts of my life. Plus, you'd never get to see this photo of me if I lived like that ;)


I'm not that person who will pretend things are perfect, but I will tell you I 100% love my life. Life is not perfect, and I'm living mine the best I can; I hope you can hold onto that mentality as well. Have a little extra fun this weekend and live your life a little more imperfectly :)

  4. I think we were in the same blog state of mind this week. Unless it was a linkup/weekend update, I just didn't have anything to write about this week. It happens, life goes on.

    It sounds as though you and my mom share a birthday! A birthday likely popular in Colorado - if you know what I mean? Yay for birthday months! So exciting!!
