If you asked me…

If you asked me, I would tell you that I got to babysit the sweetest baby today for my sweet blog friend, Brittany and I watched You’ve Got Mail while the babe napped. Chick flick and a cute baby? Pretty much the perfect afternoon, I think.

If you asked me, I would tell you that I sometimes post about silly things like my hair. I left it pretty much natural yesterday and let’s just say that highlighting has taken it’s toll. My hair is pretty poofy, so I will still live by my hair straightener. We’re BFF these days.

If you asked me, I would tell you that we’ve been trying to leave Nola out of her crate when we leave for a few hours. Today was the longest she’s been left alone out of her crate. Five hours. It helps that we can close the doors off to the living room, so she can’t roam around. She isn’t a big chewer, but I still worried a little. Thankfully, I came home to a house that was still in order and a pup that looked like this:

If you asked me, I would tell you that my dreams are big and scary but I’ve taken steps to start sharing them with friends of mine. Apparently they’re only crazy and scary to me. I have very supportive people in my life and for that I am so thankful! Still..those dreams of mine…

If you asked me, I would tell you that I’ve gotten my first social media client, working to gain a few more and working on my internship with the Girls with Glasses show. I’m so grateful for so many people believing in me, but every once in a while I get this fear that settles into my head. This fear that I’m going to fail, that I’m not going to be good enough, that I’m not worthy of these amazing opportunities, that I’m just going to let others down. It’s time for me to prove those lies wrong. Prove to myself that I AM capable. It’s about fighting the lies and working hard. It’s praying for peace when I’m overwhelmed. It’s not easy, but I’m working on it.


The “If you asked me..” post idea came from the lovely Casey who writes them every so often on her blog.

  • Nola is soooo adorable! And I like the wavey hair, but totally understand the desire to have tamed hair. My hair does this awesome frizzy spastic muppet thing if I sleep on it wet. And then it becomes close friends with my straightener. Keep working on your dreams! You got it.

  • I can relate to leaving the dog out of its crate and being a little nervous as to what’s waiting when you come home. Our pooch is usually pretty good, but last weekend we came home to find he’d chewed the duvet cover in our guest room, all the way through to the down comforter! I opened the door and feathers flew everywhere! He’s been left alone in that area for the same amount of time for months! Oh dogs…love ’em :-/
    Exciting news about your first social media client :)

  • Aw, thank you! Oh sleeping on my wet hair is a disaster waiting to happen. Thanks so much for the encouragement. You’re so kind! I appreciate it, very much so.

  • Oh noooo! That makes me a bit nervous. :- It’s almost as if they get TOO comfortable. We close off the other rooms of the house. Our house has doors to each and every room, it’s pretty much overkill but it helps keep her out of trouble. Still, our couch is just waiting for her to chew. Luckily, she’s not a huge chewer but she’s a terrible scratcher and we have wood floors. I think she’s determined to help us lose our security deposit!
