My perfect life

Update:  We did not get the house:(  But we have a whole bunch to look at tomorrow with our relator.
Interview went well.  The position is not currently vacant, but they should be finding out soon.  Thanks for all the well wishes. 

I am sure many of you have read the article, "Stop Instagramming Your Perfect Life."  I totally agree on the sentiments of the article.  Several months ago, I had to stop following some people on instagram because their pictures just totally wrecked havoc in my sinful brain.  Whether it was ten thousand pictures of themselves a day or pictures of things that they had but I don't have.  The first person I stopped following because I would start to become way too critical of the other person.  I mean how many different ways can you take a picture of yourself??  Maybe a little jealousy crept in, too, because I am the worst at self-portraits.  In my head, I am like, "I look good today!"  Take a picture of myself.  Bam!  Self esteem just hit the floor.  Either that or my outfit just got thrown across the room to join the other clothes that never get worn, but always tried on.  No wonder we have so much laundry!

I digress.

The other person I stopped following was for different reasons.  She would post nice pictures of her life, but for me, it was a struggle because she had things we don't have.  I was definitely comparing myself to her.  Instead of going through this sin issue every day, I just stopped exposing myself to them.

I would love for you to follow along with me on instagram, and I will definitely follow back just let me know you are a blogger friend.

I may even start posting pictures of all the laundry all over the couch, my super cute St. Patty's day decorations that are STILL up, the dirty griddle that I keep sliding back in the box, the peanut shells all over the car.

Bam!  I am not perfect.  I don't want to appear perfect.  Perfect is boring!
