Pass the grits, please!

Y'all, this past weekend I was rolling around the floor of Home Depot laughing at James and Ride or Die. We went to Home Depot to buy supplies for a blog project. Instead I made this cup with Ride or Die and I am so excited about it. I love my bestfrans cause they help make this blog possible. Well, I love them for more than just that.  I am so excited cause next month I will be coming up on one year of blogging versay thang. I've told y'all before that I've blogged before but never kept with it. This is the first time that I've actually stuck to blogging and I'm dang proud of myself. Besides being proud of myself, I'm just really having fun along the way. So next month be on the look out for a thank you for one year giveaway. Expect to see this cup as well as the rest of the set/ baking dishes and a few other goodies I'm lining up with some of my favorite bloggers. Drop me a line if you wanna be included.

Anyways, that is not what today's post it about. Y'all, I got to get real for a second and tell y'all I failed. Yep, failed big time. What have I failed at you asked... well, you ain't ask but I'mma tell you anyway. Yep, failed at these dang weekly wishes. Wait, I said I was gonna be honest. More like I haven't tried much. Lemme explain. It wasn't like I made and extra effort to drink more water. It was more like I've been sick and figured I couldn't taste or smell anything so why not drink water. Emails have set and set and set. Blog tweaks/ html code have haunted my dreams and text messages. Pictures have gone unedited. Post have gone unpublished. I'll stop cause by now I'm sure you get the point.

But the biggest thing is I think I've been selfish. Let's not even talk about that Bible sitting on my kitchen table that has gone untouched except for the picture I included it in for my Instagram/facebook. Pages not worn. Scriptures not read. Prayers not prayed. Selfish. That's the word I would use right now. How is it I can talk to bestfran numero uno for over two hours on the phone yesterday but I struggle to talk with God for 15 minutes. But y'all best believe when I want something we become the bestest of frans. That man chose to die on a cross for me and I can't even get together enough to be more thankful. Ya I can use the excuse that I was sick but I sure didn't use that excuse when I was trapsin' around town Saturday. And Jesus sure didn't use the excuse, "it hurts" when he was hanging on that cross. Yep, shankin' my head at myself.

So this week
Build on the weekly wishes I failed to accomplish in the last two weeks
 I'mm get my life together and hang out at the fair. 

What y'all gonna do this week? Once I reveal the rest of the cup series/ baking dishes y'all let me know if you would be interested in buying them if I started having them made.



  1. First, congrats on the upcoming blog-versary. Very cool.

    Second, I really dig you writing style and am glad I found your blog. I'll be checking it out more for sure. :)

  2. That cup is adorable. Good luck on your wishes this week!

  3. Um, yes I want to participate in your celebration!

    And God loves you anyway! No more no less than if you read His book every day :D

  4. I feel you. Sometimes what you need to do is take a step back and re-evaluate your goals. Then maybe you'll work on them better. That's how I did it when I felt like I was slacking off and making goals just for the sake of making them.
    Good luck this week! You can do it.

    1. Thanks Riane. That was very well said and exactly the point i was trying to make.

  5. i love this cup! and it's so very hard not to be selfish- especially when we feel like we have so much going on!
