Dilemmas

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

My dilemma is this:

For every 10 emails I get asking to do more giveaways/what we're wearing posts, I get an equal 10 emails asking me to go back to the 'old me.'

I always find this funny.

1)because the 'old me' is still just plain, old, regular me. Nothin's changed, folks. Have I acquired a larger audience? Kind of, but does that make me any different? Nope.

I have, however, scaled back on the super personal items on here like where we live, our day to day schedule, where I go grocery shopping, the name of my kids teachers, etc.... because growth also comes with some crazies...Do I really want every person reading my blog to know everything about me and my family? 
You probably wouldn't, either.

2) I never have, and never will define my blog as a fashion blog, mommy blog, or any other type of blog.  I don't even call myself a 'blogger'. 

If the shoe doesn't fit, don't wear it.

My blog doesn't fit into any one category because, simply put, I don't fit into any one category.

This space is about me. All of me. As a mother, wife, daughter, friend, esthetician, undercover granola, and as someone who just really loves people.  

This is a place where I talk about anything and everything I want to. 
Also, I feel like I need to say that if I do talk about a product that a company, or person, is paying me to talk about it....I will clearly state that that post is a sponsored post. 
So far, I have never been paid by a company, or person, to talk about anything on LoveChugs...Everything you've read or seen on here is something I wanted to talk about and invited you in on. 

3) If this sounds harsh---it's not meant to be. Its just that I care about everyone who reads this silly thing I've created. Especially the ones who take the time out of their day to write me an email.  Nothing besides my kids, and good make out sesh with my babe of a husband makes happier than an Email from someone who has been inspired by what I've decided to share. 

 I want to make everyone happy-but if I've learned anything in my 20-something years on Earth, its that I know making everyone happy is impossible, and the more I try to-the more unauthentic I would become. I pride myself on staying true to myself. I've fought to do this, and there's no way I'm going to sell out now. 

I guess this post is to reassure the true blue fans out there [yes, all 22 of you =)] that I hear you. I care about you. I really do. And at the end of the day, the whole reason I keep sharing my crazy life on here is because I feel driven to.  Its something I can't really ever explain.

So, there will be days when I think my outfit is awesome and my hair looks bomb, so I will want to share that with you---then there will be days where I feel inadequate, overwhelmed and uninspired, and I'll most likely want to share those with you, too.
 I'm just asking you to have faith in me....That even if you're not into something I feel like I want to put out there, that that doesn't mean someone else somewhere around the world doesn't want or need to find that exact post. 

Deal?

And oh ya, 
Remember that make out sesh I talked about earlier?
I only bring it up because just the other day Bronson and I had a full fledged 16 year old makeout fest where I actually got a rug burn on my face from his beard...I looked real sexy

I'm calling it 'beard-burn' and highly recommend getting one.
So damn fun.

  1. My husband just finished his Marine Corps contract and is determined to grow an epic beard. Due to his hairy nature, this has not been difficult for him and because of it, I am looking forward to having my own "beard burn" ;).

  9. I'm so glad that I came across your blog on the same day as you posted this. I have never labeled myself as a "mom blog" or "wife blog" and tha'ts not just because I'm not a mom or a wife... I think we shouldn't categorize ourselves into these little blog categories, because we should always blog freely and having the label might make us second guess what it is we are doing in the blogosphere. OH and there is nothing better than a good old fashioned making out like a 16 year old session.

  13. Weslie, I stumbled upon your blog about a year ago and have been reading it ever since. I can't believe I didn't find it before then! I love your open honesty and hilarious stories about your precious babies. I've always wanted to blog but always afraid to take the leap and I finally did. Thank you for inspiring me :) Madeline
