Whew! We got back into town last night from a really fun but whirlwind Thanksgiving break. Anyone else feel like Thanksgiving is kind of a tease? I’m so excited to be home for Christmas! But I’m also looking forward to crackin’ down on the end of the year. So I thought we’d kick off this week with a more personal post.
When you blog about your life (which I seem to do less and less of lately) your blog acts as a kind of filter. It filters out a lot of the boring, unpretty, uncreative, or worse stuff that is not deemed “blog worthy.” Well, I thought today it would be fun to share some of the things that get filtered out. The day-to-day stuff. The unpretty stuff.
I only shower and get dressed like a normal human being every other day. On a good week.
Brian and I eat lunch and dinner in front of the TV. Complete with our own TV trays. I don’t think this is a forever thing (I mean, lunch definitely isn’t) but it works for us right now and I’m okay with it.
Related to this, Brian and I have burned through 9 seasons of Frasier on Netflix in less than 6 months. I have no regrets.
I have not framed a single wedding picture. We got married a year and three months ago. I know.
I haven’t really decorated our apartment at all. Pretty much everything was handed down to us or is stuff that we got as gifts. The space is tiny, and other than some minimal things I just haven’t been motivated to decorate it all that much.
I don’t think I’ve ever owned a real designer anything. That’s not really my MO.
I essentially don’t work out anymore. Some weeks are better than others, but… it’s just really hard for me to make time when my work to-do is always looming. I don’t have a better excuse than that.
I am horrible about making phone calls. Like really dysfunctional about it. I’m bad about keeping in touch by phone, and if it’s calling a stranger, you better believe that I will try to get out of it by any means.
What are the things that you filter out of your blog? I’d love to hear them!
