Sleeping Women....romantic movie version vs. real life

I was listening to Garth Brooks on the way to the dentist the other day. Don't hate. I like country music. What about it?

ANYWAY this beautiful, romantic melody came on called "If Tomorrow Never Comes".

Let's not get caught up in the fact that this song COULD have been written to his daughter, or his mother, or his wife (who all appear in this video)...his wife, who he ended up cheating on with another Country Music star, Trisha Yearwood (whom he later married)...let's just focus on the words at the very beginning of this beautiful love song:

Sometimes late at night
I lie awake and watch her sleeping
She's lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark

Every romantic movie I've ever seen where the leading lady is sleeping always has her looking like she just layed down after getting home from a day at the salon. Beautiful and angelic. Makeup perfect and not a hair out of place...unless it is perfectly tossled around the pillow. And couples will always wake up gazing at each other and immediately embrace in some long passionate kiss. Something to behold, for sure. And this song certainly brings that vision to one's mind wouldn't you say? I would. And that's all that matters since this is my blog.

However, reality is much more harsh. Not very romantic at all most of the time.

Drool, snoring, morning breath and bed head. That's reality.

Well, it's my reality.

Well, it's my husband's reality.


  1. You are so funny! And so honest. I hate pics of myself that aren't becoming (& most are not).

    Blessings on you dear, for sharing all of yourself! :)

  2. I've definitely noticed how glammed up female leads are in movies when they sleep. I wonder why she would put mascara & lip liner on right before bed....

    I have a few of those awful, embarrassing sleep-shots too!
