Hard to Love

I'm obsessed with this song.....

"Hard To Love"

I am insensitive I have a tendency

To pay more attention to the things that I need.

Sometimes I drink to much, sometimes I test your trust,

Sometimes I don't know why you're staying with me?

I'm hard to love, hard to love,

I don't make it easy,

I couldn't do it if I stood where you stood

I'm hard to love, hard to love,

You say that you need me,

I don't deserve it but I love that you love me.


I am a short fuse, I am a wrecking ball

Crashing into your heart like I do

You're like a Sunday morning full of grace and full of Jesus

I wish that I could be more like you.

I'm hard to love, hard to love,

I don't make it easy,

I couldn't do it if I stood where you stood,

I'm hard to love, hard to love,

You say that you need me,

I don't deserve it but I love that you love me.


Love me good

Girl you've given me a million second chances

And I don't ever wanna take you for granted,

I'm just a man, I'm just a man

Hard to love, hard to love,

Oh I don't make it easy a

And I couldn't do it if I stood where you stood.

I'm hard to love, hard to love

And you say that you need me,

I don't deserve it but I love that you love me.

Good [x2]

You love me good.

I'd heard rave reviews about Sissy's Southern Kitchen and just had to check it out.  Trendy and small, in a fun part of Dallas (Henderson).  When I walked in, I felt like I was walking into my dream home.  Cottage, rustic, equestrian, toile, 1950's CHIC!  Animal heads anchored by 40 different patterned transferware plates.  The food was served on the Spode Woodland china!  I had to calm my heart a few times.  I'd expect nothing less from a place that belonged to Lisa Garza.  Do yall remember her from Food Network Star?

We sat on the enclosed patio, at a tiny table for 2.  It was quaint, but VERY HOT.  Starters are my kryptonite...they have 8 on their menu & I wanted every last one of them.  Lindsi and I settled on the Purple Hull Pea Cake.  It was served with baby rocket lettuce and lemon aioli.  It was good.  Not GREAT, but good. 

Everyone said, you've gotta get the fried chicken!  And so we DID.  House spiced, buttermilk soaked, pressure fried.  We had a choice of sloppy slaw or sweet butter whipped potatoes.  We chose the potatoes and then got a side of Sissy's Mac & Cheese.  (we did SHARE it, haha)!  It was soooo cheesy and creamy.  YUM.  The chicken was perfectly spiced and VERY crispy. Would definitely recommend it and will order it again.  Great atmosphere, you should check it out!

Chicken burger

Here is what those burgers look like, with ground chicken.

Blue cheese Burger

These burgers are SO good and can be made with any kind of meat you want to use:  I've tried them with ground chicken, turkey & pork.  YUM. 

Here is what you need:  1lb of ground meat, bread crumbs, grated onion, carrot & garlic, hot sauce and Worcestershire.

I use a handheld grater and grate about 1/4 an onion several garlic cloves and about half a carrot into bowl over the meat.  Then add several dashes of hot sauce (you can tell, I like A LOT) and Worcestershire & salt & pepper to taste, to mixture and combine with your hands. 

Cover the meat mixture with a layer of panko breadcrumbs, cover with plastic wrap and let mixture sit in fridge for an hour, or longer, if you have the time.  Once the meat has chilled, combine so that the breadcrumbs are distributed throughout the meat mixture.  Separate meat into 8 even amounts.  I quarter the mixture and then make 2 patties out of each. 

Put a heaping tablespoon of crumbled blue cheese onto 4 of the patties.  Place the remaining patties (the lids) onto the (the bottoms) and seal the edges so the cheese doesn't ooze out. 

Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 15 mins at 400.  I doused mine with buffalo sauce before (cause I can't leave well enough alone) then flip them douse with more sauce and cook another 15 mins.  Remove from oven and allow to sit for 5-10 mins before serving.  I eat these on toasted hamburger buns, on sandwich bread, in a pita pocket.  Or leave off the bread all together and just have with a salad, great low carb option!  ENJOY!

Match update

Because nothing says romance like the internet! It’s day 135 out of 180 & I thought it was time for a little update. I’ve learned a lot. Number one thing is…don’t pray for patience, cause God might just try to teach it to you!

I guess I've seen too many episodes of SATC, matchmaking shows and read too many Nicholas sparks books for my own danged good. They pound into your head, there’s no such thing as THE ONE, there is no happily ever after, she never ends up with Mr. right. And then, at the end the rug always gets yanked and guess what? She DOES get the guy. Every time. Every CINGULAR time. (ask me about the cingular joke later)

In regards to “playing games”. ALL the profiles say, “im not into playing games” Haha. I go back and forth with them. #1 it's my natural instinct and how I show love to be "doting" and overly affectionate when it comes to attention to detail and affirmations. That goes for all my relationships, even family & friends. If you’re on my mind…I’m gonna tell you. And if I send you a good morning text, it’s because I’m genuinely wishing you a GOOD morning. I think men desire that whether they say it or not. But I also don't want to give it all away up front and be too ooey gooey. Cause I know that scares guys off. So, there I sit….NOT texting, waiting to be one that RECEIVES them…not sends them. Not being myself. Starring at my phone WILLING it to buzz. Uuummm, can someone send me a “test”? I think my text may be broken!
Every last one of guys profiles say they want a girl to just be who she is, "comfortable in her own skin" not be something she isn’t! Except if what she is, isnt what he wants, right?!?!?! It's just so confusing!

Dating in your 30’s is NOT for the faint of heart.

Date update: I’ve been on actual dates with 5 guys so far. Oh, and a date with someone NOT from Match, but we won’t count him. I still talk to 2. And 1 of the 2, is only in the “friend” category. He’s the emotionally un-available one. So, that leaves 1! Great odds, huh? What’s the opposite of batting 1,000? I really like the 1 that is left. Like, REALLY. But, I’m not putting all my eggs in one basket. I’ve got 45 more days on Match that I’ve already paid for…and I’m gonna see where it takes me!!!

Horse races

My company sponsors an event at the horse races once a year. 

I never gamble (I work too dang hard to give my money away) but it's always fun to go.

Is it just me, or do yall get an excited feeling when you hear that horn?
I love it!
