Stay Positive

While we definitely have a lot of great things going for us right now, it's been a pretty tough week for me. Emotionally, physically, mentally... ugh, just a lot going on "behind the scenes" I guess you could say. It's difficult sometimes to show up to this space and write about the things I had planned when you're just plain grumpy, for lack of a better word. I don't feel like snapping photos and editing them for the new dinner recipe I hoped you all would pin and it would go viral and make my blog zillions of dollars ;)

And you know what? That's okay. You don't always have to be "on" in blogworld, if you ask me. The blogs I enjoy most are the ones that just write when they want to, about whatever they want to. And when you don't want to write? That's okay too. Just come back to us blog readers when you're ready.

So I'm semi-ready to pull myself together today. Since it's Friday and all, we can at least celebrate that, right?! We've got an incredibly busy weekend ahead of us, but sadly I think that's going to be our lives for the foreseeable future. Moving and selling and building is taking over right now, so just pray we can hold onto our sanity. If there's any left...

But in an effort to stay positive here are some highlights right now:

 - Girls night midweek was the perfect pick me up. Jared's cousin is getting married in a few months and is having an intimate, immediately-family-only wedding. So while I won't be there on the big day, I am happy to be celebrating with her until then ;) We went out for mexican food, got all the details and pictures of her gorgeous dress, ooh-ed and ahh-ed over her ring and just enjoyed girl talk for a couple of hours.

- The Super Bowl!! I am really pumped for this match up on Sunday. I'm rooting for the Falcons because they're the NFC team, Julio Jones rocks and Mohamed Sanu deserves a SB win after playing for the Bengals for the past few years. I got to meet him a handful of times and I love that dude... Happy to see him playing in this game and would love for him to get a W!

- Finding out the date they're breaking ground at our new house. It's going to be sooner than we anticipated which is SUPER exciting. I'm going to be that crazy person driving over every day to see what looks different ;)

-And last but not least, my adorable Mamaw's birthday is this weekend. This beauty is turning 83 and I'm so thankful for her presence in my life. Love her!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

  2. Aww happy birthday memaw!!! I totally agree with you and Kayla - real blogs are the ones I want to read! Whether is be sharing the hard times, or maybe keeping them to yourself but at the same time not acting like life is perfect...if that makes sense? Anyways - happy friday!!! Hopefully you have a great weekend and can ease some of that toughness you have been feeling.

  4. I totally understand that feeling. I've had a rough couple of weeks, too. And I want to blog and I have a few times but sometimes its just hard to write about the "fluff" when you're not ready to share the real! I hope you have an amazing weekend and can recharge for then next week!

  5. I am really hoping to see the Falcons win. I would cheer on for just about anyone but the Patriots.

    Hugs friend! Life can be so hard, don't worry about blogging. Just share when you can and we will be here to read it when you post.

  8. I feel ya on the whole "meh" thing when it comes to blogging. When so much is happening behind the screen, you tend to step away from it. Let's go Falcons!

  9. I totally feel you, I prefer blogs that write about their real lives too and sometimes that means not always being perfect. I am so glad we are cheering for the same team this weekend! You know my boy Julio was an Alabama player ;)

  14. I totally agree with you that sometimes you just don't feel like writing, and that's ok. Blogging should never be forced because it's supposed to be fun! That's so exciting that they're breaking ground on your house sooner than expected!

  16. YES, go Falcons! Hoping you have a great Super Bowl Sunday and your spirits pick up soon. I’m right there with you—lots of exciting, positive things going on, but after this recent move and complete switch with my routine, things have just felt… off. Enjoy your weekend and happy birthday to your Mamaw! (Love the nickname :) )

  18. Seriously, I love when people don't blog when they just aren't feeling it. We've discussed why I am having a hard time showing up lately too haha. Hopefully those behind the scenes things level out and this week is better for you!
