Weird Weekend.

It was just one of "those" weekends. As much as I craved a relaxing weekend, it just didn't seem to happen. Brandon and I were just "off" this weekend. And it wasn't pretty, fun or relaxing. But we're human, and it happens.

Blogging is hard. I try so hard to be transparent with y'all while still keeping a bit of privacy for myself and my husband (and our families). And it's hard because there are so many times that I want to tell you that I just bawled my eyes out because Brandon and I got into an argument, or that I had a tiff with a family member, or I'm upset with a friend. And on the other hand, there are times that I want to scream from the rooftops and tell y'all how much I love my husband, and how great our families and friends are.

But there's a thin line that I have been struggling with lately, because I know that what y'all see here is a only glimpse of our daily lives. I'm not perfect, Brandon isn't perfect, our families aren't perfect, our jobs aren't perfect, and our home isn't perfect. I struggle because, as with a lot of folks, we have really good days and we have really bad days. And I know that you don't want to read here that Brandon and I argued over something silly, but I also know that you don't want to hear me saying that our life is just Cleaver family perfect, either. {News flash, it's not!}

Because I know when I read blogs and the person is just a Negative Nancy, I get turned off and think, "Well, what the heck is HER problem?" And when the person is just a Happy Holly, I get annoyed and think, "My gosh, don't you have a bad day?!" 

So I'm not really going to tell you about this weekend, because A) I know you don't want to hear about it and  B) I think that even though I do blog, my husband and I do deserve a bit of privacy. 

So I will tell you that we had dinner at Rusty Taco on Friday night with our friends Jessica and Austin {we just love them! Hey, Jess!}. 

And that cheered our Baylor Bears on to victory as they beat the Oklahoma Sooners for the first time EVER! 45-38...Sic 'Em, Bears! (We heart RG3.) 


And I'll tell you that we went to church this morning {my gosh, did we need it} and got to visit with our friends there, too. And that I came home and put Salsa Chicken in the Crock Pot for tonight's supper.

And I'll even give you a sneak peek of what I'll be doing this afternoon:  


That's right, wrapping Christmas (and Brandon's birthday) gifts. 

I'm also attempting to thread this banner with green ribbon so that it'll be ready to hang on Friday. 


So, thank you for reading this blog and sticking with me. I hope that you guys understand a "blogger's right to privacy," and that you understand that I'm trying to be as open and honest as I can be. 

I hope y'all have a great Sunday. Cheers to a short week!

  1. Oh girl, I totally get it! No one wants to blog about the everyday "crap" but just because you don't talk about it that doesn't mean it isn't there. Tyler's been home for exactly 8 days and lord knows we've had our moments! It's hard to ind the line between sharing (I.e blogging) and sharing too much. Hope your Sunday was restful and enjoyable!!
