Mommy and Me Monday and a New Challenge!

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
Hosted by Krystyn at Really, Are You Serious?

My kids and I have spend quite a bit of time in our backyard this summer. Just playing on our playset and the patio and blowing up the pool. The other week I took the camera out and ofcourse my son wanted to take pictures too! This is one he took.

I've been seeing this 30 Days of truth Challenge by
Angel Believes pop up on blogs and thought it looked very interesting. The questions are quite thought provoking and can bring you back into your past. I'm not sure if I can get through it as some of the questions are kinda tough and I don't have a lot of experience with them but I'm gonna give it a shot! I recommend anyone trying it! :)

First question:

Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.

Well this ones a little easier than it should be but then again we are our own worst critic (I hate cliches) I would have to say the fact that I'm so shy and introverted and not the real me with people. I have a good friend back home that I can totally be myself with: crack jokes, be a goof, cry my eyes out... and she still loves me and even thinks I'm funny?? Deep down I know that other people would too or at least not be mean or anything and keep their thoughts of "what a geek" or "how pathetic" to themselves. I know why I have such low self esteem because I didn't always I just wish I could make it go away.


  1. Cute pic! I love your swingset!

    Aw girl, I have felt that exact same way. It's an ugly ugly feeling. I know I haven't met you IRL but I know you are an amazing girl and friend. Don't let these feelings take over. You are way better than that. xoxo

  2. Nice swingset! I have low self esteem too. Makes it hard to teach our kids to have a high one, doesn't it?

  3. Aidyn LOVES taking pictures of me! Its an OBSESSION! I think your son did a great job!

    I think you are a rockin! I wish you could see yourself through our eyes!

  4. nice post...

    here's mine:

  5. Great pic!

    I also find it hard to be "real" with others. It stinks, but at least you have a great friend to be yourself with!

  6. What a great swingset.

    I'm a pretty real person, too. A lot of people would rather you lie to them, I think.
