I’ve debated writing this post for a while and I’m finally finding the courage to sit down and do this. Thanks to all of the wonderful new bloggers I have found recently for giving me the gusto to type what I am about to type.
For a long time I have had the notion in my head of what my blog should look like. Notice I said should?! For the longest time, probably too long, I have had probably the #1 blogging disease… Thinking that my blog needed to look like so and so’s. Or that I had to write similar to you know who. Well guess what?? I’m over that stage. I’m tossing all of that malarkey out the window. Yes I just said malarkey 🙂 I’m moving on to the next stage of blogging and I certainly hope you’re coming with me!
Here’s the deal: between my work schedule, family schedule, kids activity schedule, making time for family and friends, making sure to attend every and all birthdays/events/showers, having enough hands on play time and quiet time with each of our children as a whole as well as individually I don’t have the energy to put on a polished outfit, ring up a photographer friend who has mad photo taking abilities as well as photoshop abilities. Nor do I have the mental capacity most days to apply makeup, and I certainly don’t have lavish wardrobe for me to style to your liking. My style goes about as far as sweatpants and t-shirts…or jeans and a sweatshirt on a day when I’m not feeling overly bloated 🙂 Oh the joys of having 3 kids in 4 years! There is nothing on this body/ face that you will be missing- trust me!
In fact most nights when I come home from work it is a miracle when I have a hot dinner on the table for my children that does not include oatmeal, eggs, or pancakes. I mean who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner and I would be lying if I said I don’t do my happy dance when my children request these for dinner. Especially considering our oldest son can now make(safely) oatmeal which is a huge help!! But if I am going to be in the right mindset and whole heatedly hand myself over to you through my blog then I need to have as little mommy guilt as possible. Also another attribute I can thank my children for.
So there you have it. While I’m not quite sure what this blog is evolving into I can tell you it most certainly will not contain selfies of me in the latest most trendy outfits. I can give you pictures of 2nd day hair and makeup while rockin’ some sweats that may or may not be bright pink. And I highly doubt you want to see pictures of my messy living room with toys sprawled all over it. But what I can promise you is that what you see and get will never be fake. I refuse to let smoke and mirrors take over my blog.
This spot is a passion for me, and I never want that passion to fizzle. I always want the fire to keep on burnin’ and the ideas fresh. So while you might not get selfies of me each and every day know that what you are seeing is the truth. Always. And I have to say I am very excited to be moving along in my blogging journey.
Well there you have it. A piece of me. A piece of my heart and vulnerability-so please try to be nice 🙂
P.S. This post ( just like my last one) comes to you from mi baño. My bath!! There certainly is a trend going on here with me and the bathtub lately, huh? Well who am I to knock a good spot for writing?!! I certainly will not. You should try it sometime. For reals 😉
One thought on “What you see is what you get!”
Loved this post!! You know i love honesty!! I think its great you ness to just do what's right for you. Blogging is supposed to be a fun, positive outlet! I have to remind myself of that when I start getting to caught up in it and feeling guilty for not posting or whatever! You and your family are always more important!! Xoxoox H
