Speaking my mind




There has been a great debate raging in my head as I have struggled with what to tell you my darlings and what not to tell you about my life as of late.

There is always the fear of the unknown...

But after much soul searching, I have decided that the whole reason I started this blog was as a way to have an open diary. For me, this blog is a safe place to speak my mind, a place to be honest, and basically a place to keep it real (these are basically all the same thing, but I think that splitting it up into three subcategories makes it so much more official, don't you?)

So, in the interest of keeping it real, I will share what I have been debating to share...

I will start with a story...

On our second date, Jeff and I went to Barnes and Noble. We sat on the stage in the children's section and read to each other. We each picked books that we have loved growing up as a kid. Jeff managed to find one that I had loved before I did, so he got to read it.

It was this book...
As Jeff read to me. We got to the part in the story about this man:
Sylvester McMonkey McBean is his name...for some reason, I found it extremely silly on that day.

I joked with Jeff and dared him to name his first born child Sylvester McMonkey McBean. He accepted the dare...

...

I don't think this will be the name we will be using come November 10...

Just sayin...

Hugs and loves until Next Time!

Please, for the love of everything sacred, leave out "McMonkey."

Huh. Come November. My dear, I do declare.... is this a declaration? Of someone coming to the Jeff and Brittany household? :) Sneaky-sneaky. And I love it. And congratulations.
Oh, and I vote veto on Sylvester. McBean could work....
