Most people are surprised that this was Mister's idea for me to write a blog about our everyday lives. Really and truly he's very open about the struggles of his journey to get to the NFL. It hasn't been a cake walk but he has definitely been blessed. Through this blog I have gotten so much feedback, both positive and negative. It has been both encouraging and uplifting...because it gives me a chance to look inside myself. Much like most things in life, there are good and bad things to this football thing. Most people, including my family, think this is all so much fun and we practically have no worries.

Please believe that my struggles are just like yours. There isn't enough time in the day for me to keep things together. I have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear just like most women. Mister complains every time I head out to the mall like most men. The other day I was talking to one of my friends and she was shocked that I haven't gotten a housekeeper. I was explaining to her that not every NFL wife has a team of people keeping everything tied together. I fall into that category. Don't get me wrong I am considering getting somebody because 4 toilets is just too much for one woman to clean!

Seriously, I pray every night that neither Chris nor I take this opportunity lightly and that we realize how blessed we are at 23 and 24. We pray that we remain humble and down-to-earth, because this is a blessing and God could have chosen somebody else to wear #27. The things that have happened to us, both good and bad, some people never get to experience. So to everyone who has written a message, left a comment, watched a game, lifted a prayer for us, or called to check up on us I thank you. I realize that you never know who's in your corner and whose lives you are affecting; and honestly you don't always have to know.

With the final cuts for the team looming Chris and I are on pins and needles, and trying to find ways to keep busy. He is vacuuming our empty formal living room as we speak! We are hoping for the best....but it really doesn't matter because we know that we have faith and so much love and support. On a different note, please say a prayer for Harry Williams. His girlfriend and I are friends and he's one of Mister's teammates. He was injured in Friday night's game and has had neck surgery. The doctors have told him that his football career is over. So just whisper a little prayer for him and his family.

I've known Elisia since she was down in the N.O and she is materialistic and loves to flash whatever she can! There is nothing wrong with showing alittle off here and there. However yall dont have kids or any other family in the house so why get a maid? Four bathrooms is not alot that is just spending more of Chris's $. I agree with the other person this blog thing is stupid

Elisia these anonymous HATERS has to be someone on your facebook friend list that you thought were your friends(Stop posting Anonymous)!!! If the blog makes her look stupid, why do you bother to even read it? You can leave your negative comments elsewhere. Why not be happy for one another? Are you mad because you don't have a Husband or boyfriend to talk about? Keep doing what you do girl!!!

WTF.....why are you worrying about how they spend their money? It's not just Chris money once you get married it belongs to both!!! How you know she doesn't have a job? Doesn't matter if they have kids are not she can get a maid if she want. Keep the negativity to yourself. Better yet post with an OPEN ID if you want to be heard.
