Good friendship & The Bachelor

This morning a good friend and her son came over to visit. Judah and her son played really well together and we got to have good conversation. Lately, I've been feeling burdened to have deeper friendships and get beyond all the small talk and "surfacey" stuff. I feel like I'm out around other people enough but, I'm not satisfied with the depth of my relationships. I hope that makes sense.....

It's definitely no one's fault except my own that my relationships aren't what I'd like them to be. I'm often more on the shy and quiet side and I know I need to step out of my comfort zone more often and reach out to people. There are just so many things that hold me back. Insecurities, time, kids......I also wonder if other people want to have deeper friendships or if it's just me. It's so easy to just assume that everyone else is just satisfied with the relationships in their life.

The visit this morning was really good. We had good conversation about things that are bigger than just small talk stuff. It's so nice to get beyond the small talk and talk about things of real importance.

Tonight my sister is coming over after my babies will be in bed and we are going to eat popcorn, drink diet pop and watch The Bachelor. I am so excited! I will quickly admit that even though I don't think that show is the way to find real love, I do love watching it. All I have to say is that he better pick this girl. I will be so disappointed if he doesn't!


  1. I appreciate your vulnerability. So glad you had a good visit. It's important that you have at least one friend that you are able to go really deep with.

    On the other note... I always crack up when I learn the people who watch The Bachelor. I am always surprised. I think I am one of the few people in The United States that has never seen an episode. I'm more of a CSI girl. Much darker, I know.

  2. Angela, I loved reading this post. Thanks for sharing... and I do want deeper friendships too! (especially in the Stanwood area.. since all my bffs live far away).

    Cami, I watch the Bachelor AND CSI... and a lot of other garbage... which I have gotten under control since we switched to a very basic cable plan ;)

  3. Oh, and Angela... btw, I LOVE your new blog layout... very fun and engaging. Hugs.

  4. Thanks Rachelle! We still need to get together sometime---soon! Let me know when Cade is all better and you guys can come over.

  5. I love the Bachelor! I was so glad when he picked Emily! I was a little sad about how their relationship has gone after the show but I still think they are cute together.

    I am a new follower from Saturday Stalk, I would love if you could stop by


Thank you for your comments. I read every single one of them and they always make me smile.
