In my dream world...
I would have a delicious, calm, relaxing and styled breakfast everyday
Reality - I don't eat until about 11:00 or 12:00 everyday because these days I seem to think that everything is more important than eating.
I would cook and bake with skill like my friend Rebecca at cake walk
Reality - I cook, but don't do it well at all. I don't really enjoy being in the kitchen. I feel like I'm there all the time.
everyone would be honest and vulnerable like Melissa at design delights
Reality: People like to pretend a lot. "Everything is fine." "I'm fine." "We're good." Maybe it's self preservation, but when I ask someone how they're doing...I really want to know. I care.
I would have the courage and humor needed to decorate my house like Jenny at dos family
Reality: I play it a bit more safe and only dream of painting my hardwood floors white or black and adding pink in 3-4 rooms. I'm pretty sure my husband would have a heart attack.
I'd be drivin' this bad boy!
Reality: I drive a Nissan Murano. I like it fine. She's practical.
we'd live on a farm with some kickin' chickens and I'd homeschool like Molly at mommycoddle
Reality: We live in Dallas, Texas and both my kids will go to public school. Public because we've prayed about it and think that it's the right choice for my oldest (youngest is to be determined). And, because as much as I love being home with them adore their sweet little spirits, this Mommy is not wired for home schooling. It takes a special Mommy. Hats off to all of you heroes out there.
I'd get 10 hours of sleep every single night.
Reality: I go to bed way too late and end up getting only about 6-7 hours. It's beginning to show!
Have a lovely weekend. xo
