I have read on a few blogs lately about how some bloggers make their life seem so perfect. Sometimes I wonder if I am one of those people. I am not the type to ever air my dirty laundry to anyone and I also try to always think on the positive side. The world we live in is filled with so much sadness at times that I just try to create this little bubble on my blog that is only filled with the fun stuff. That being said, I think it's important to admit that we are not perfect. We all have little flaws and imperfections that make us who we are. So I'll tell you a little about mine:

  • I am a sugar addict. I always talk about eating healthy on here, but I consume way to much sugar on a daily basis. My cravings get so bad that I actually had Gabe take me to get ice cream during all of the tornado stuff we had Tuesday night. 
  • I pray every day, but I don't make it to church all that often. I feel like a hypocrite for that. Here I am talking to God on a daily basis, but I can't seem to get up early enough one day a week to go to church and praise him. This is becoming more and more of a problem to me. And this is one of my flaws that I not only NEED  to change, but want to change. 
  • I watch way to much tv. It's almost an obsession. Gabe and I have actually had arguments over tv shows. Ridiculous!
  • I have horrible vision, but I don't wear contacts because they are uncomfortable to me. I also don't wear glasses because I'm a little vain. I plan on just letting my vision get a little worse over the next few years and then get lasik.
  • I don't always get along with my in-laws. And this is frustrating. 
  • I already mentioned that I am vain. I obsess over my skin and hair and my clothes. It drives my friends and my fiance crazy. 
  • I can't cook. Or I guess I just don't want to. I usually let Gabe do this.
  • I am OCD about cleaning. And I have a hard time letting anyone help me clean because I am convinced that they will do it wrong. This is why I hate letting Gabe load the dishwasher. I will literally have to fix the way he loads it. The only chores he is allowed to do is fold towels and take out the trash. 
  • I am always late. For everything. It doesn't matter how early I get up, I will be running late in the morning. I am so bad about this that my parents and Gabe have both started telling me that we need to be somewhere at 6 if we actually have to be there by 6:30. 
  • I spend to much money. No explanation needed.
  • I cry over commercials
  • I am bad about keeping in touch with people. I will go days without calling my family or any of my friends because I just get so caught up in my day to day life. 
  • I like to sleep. A lot.
  • I am the opposite of a hoarder. I throw away everything. And I mean everything. Like Gabe's tax stuff from last year... Yeah that caused some problems!
  • I am terrified of having children because I am convinced I will be a horrible mother.
  • I am scared of the dark so sleep with the tv on. 
  • I had a car wreck the summer after my senior year of high school. Since then I have been so scared of driving and I only drive when I have to. 
  • That being said, I'm also so scared of losing someone I love in a car wreck.
So what are some of your imperfections?

I love that you posted these things! I have many of the same "problems" you have. Ha!

Besides the things you listed (like spending too much money, not going to church enough, etc.) that are also some of my flaws, here are some more:

* I compare myself to other people too much. I find myself wishing I could be more like people I know (or more often people whose blogs I read). I should spend more time realizing how blessed I am.

* I talk about losing weight ALL the time, but I don't change my eating habits.

* I don't make enough effort to stay in touch with some people. I use "busy" as an excuse too often.

Have a great Thursday!

What a great post! Some blogs annoy me with how they only post the awesome, expensive and problem-free parts of their life. I try to not make it that way and I'm glad you brought it to attention :)

I don't ever post, but I often read your blog. It is very enjoyable. You are younger than me & I have 2 kids. I don't have time to test products or find ideas so I come here to see what your up to:) I got a nail polish you recommended at a recent pedicure:) I felt great afterward! I deleted a blog the other day because a girl had a link to a $245 shirt she bought and a link to some other expensive clothes. She never has anything cheap. It turned me off. We even make good money, but that isn't the point. I like blogs with good people, real ideas, real lives, and real struggles. Keep up the great blog:) We all have imperfections.

P.S. I recommend Sandals Resorts for your honeymoon. (Bahamas or Jamaica!) They even have a great price range selection in rooms if you want to keep your future husband happy!!!

I have MANY of the exact same flas as you. Eat too many sweets, can't cook, OCD about cleaning, ALWAYS late, cry over commercials, a little vain, & scared of driving. I have thought about that before...."I wonder if others think I try to make my life sound perfect on here? cuz it's DEF not!!" But, I do want my blog to be a positive place where I'm not constantly focusing on my flaws & imperfections. I think there are enough ppl in this world already doing that!! :) Enjoying your blog!
