I made it!

I made it through my first semester in radiology school!! I feel like I have neglected my blog so bad, but I didnt realize how busy I would be in school. I honestly did not think I would make it this past week! I was so exhausted from studying. I have never studied so much in my life. Me and some girls in my class would drive to school at 7 in the morning and stay literally all day at school to study for finals. I did really well on two finals but the 3rd one really kicked my butt. but I still made it and i am so relieved!!

On another note, Lance and I are settled down in the new house and we are so happy! We love our new place on 10 acres of land with a big red barn! It's so peaceful out in the country...yet only 2 miles from town! I am going back to work at Kingwood(my job before I went to school) for Christmas break so I'll have alot of access to my blog so I hope to catch up on alot of things.

I love the holidays!'s been over a month since i've blogged last! I honestly did not think my life would revolve around school this much! I've had so much going on you wouldn't believe! Lance and I are moving into a new house this week. It's a long story but we are having to move out of the house that we are in right now because our friends (the house is our friends grandpas house) "need" to move into it. Um, yeah well, needless to say we got right now finding a new house and we did within 4 days! thats so unusal around our area because it's a college town so usually everything is taken up. We found a nice little trailer on 10 acres of land with a big barn! We are having to down size a bit but thats okay because I know we are going to LOVE living at our new place. Everything is fenced in and I know I will feel safe there. It also includes a storm cellar so thats a bonus!

I found some time to go to a concert last friday night! It was brad paisley, darius rucker, and JUSTIN MOORE! It was A-MA-ZING! If your not familar with justin moore, well he's from arkansas and he finally was able to put on a concert in his home state and he did so good!! We even called the hogs! (a razorback thing). Me, Lance, my bestfriend whitney and her husband went and it felt so nice to get out! I haven't done anything since July! It was a great time with my bestfriend, especially with everything going on with the moving situation.

How was everyone's Thanksgiving?! Mine was okay. My mom is home from Alabama helping me  pack up my house so we went to Lance's parents house for Thanksgiving. Then went straight home and packed the rest of the day. Wow, what a way to spend Thanksgiving, but it's got to be done. I was in a pretty funky mood having to pack on Thanksgiving, but Lance finally made me realize that I should be THANKFUL for even having a house to move in to. He always knows how to straighten me out. lol!

As soon as we get in our new place, which hoping it will be monday or tuesday, I am putting up Christmas decorations! Yayyy!!! I'll post pictures as soon as I have time!! I hope yall stick around on my blog, I know i'm a slacker but I really do love to blog! Okay, i'm off to catch up on some of my favorite blog sites!

Brad Paisley Concert!

P.S. Well, I was going to add more pictures but it's not letting me for some reason! So i'll try to add some soon!

Vintage baby shower!

I had to get these pictures off Erica's (the mommy) facebook because I haven't uploaded my pictures off my camera yet. But here are a few pictures from the baby shower my best friend whitney and I threw for her sister Erica!

Whitney, Erica (mommy-to-be), and Me!

 The food table. We put white sheets up, then hung twine so we could clothespin Erica's maternity pictures up. We also hung a lime green and turquoise blue tissue pom poms up. We hung mason jars with twine and filled the bottom with rice and put a tea light candle in it! Super cute!!

 We were playing the game that you tried to guess her belly size with string

Opening presents! 

 Holly(bottom left), Lindsey(top left), Erica, Me, and Whitney! Love my girlfiends!

Where did my life go?

hey everyone! It's me..Kasey. I'm not sure if you remember me because i've totally abandoned my blog due to school. I cannot believe how busy my life is with school now. What am I talking about? I HAVE NO LIFE!! All I do is study and sleep. lol! I absolutely love it though! I am enjoying radiology school so much and I know this is where God wants me. I'm sorry that I haven't been writing much, but since we've moved way out in the country, we haven't found an internet service that will reach out there yet...but we're still looking! My bestfriend whitney and I threw her sister erica a baby shower this past weekend! I've mentioned before that it was going to be a vintage theme and it turned out perfect!! I will post pictures as soon as I can, but here is a sneak peak of Erica, Me, and Whitney!

Aren't we so cute?! lol! You can see in the background that we put up white sheets and hung twine from it and clothespinned erica's maternity pictures to them. You also can see on the very right a green tissue pom pom. They were so cute! Well I better get back to clinic!!

Have a fabulous day!

Busy Life

So it's my 2nd week of school and I have two test this week! Whew! I'm enjoying it so much though! My radiology class is only 15 people and we all get along so well..well so far we do. It's like we are starting our own little family for the next two years. I have been studying so much lately and I dont see it slacking up anytime soon. But I actually like studying because it's interesting stuff and not the ole' boring stuff. I really want to keep my blog going, so I hope noone goes anywhere because I really do enjoy it, but school comes first so I have to make sure I take care of my schooling first.

So anyways, Saturday is my 21st birthday! Yay..i'm finally going to be 21! Wow..i'm getting old. lol.

I hope everyone has a great week!

First day of Radiology School!

Wheewwww what a day yesterday was! It was the first day of x-ray school and I wasn't as nervous as I thought I would be. Actually, I wasn't nervous at all. We have 4 teachers. 3 in the classrooms, and 1 for clinicals. I am super excited about getting clincals started!! I start in the Emergency Room! Whoo!

Yesterday was definitely an overwhelming day with all the information and instructions but it was so exciting at the same time. They mostly reviewed over the school rules, radiology rules, HIPPA, and the hospital rules. Tomorrow is the first day that school will actually start. We had a senior come in and talk to us and he said these first 2 months of school was going to be alot to I hope to stay updated on here as much as I can through this first semester. I hope everyone that has started school is having a good week so far!!

Last Day

Today is my last day of work :(. I didnt think I would be so bummed, but I really am. I have been at this place for 3 1/2 years. They've seen me graduate highschool and start college. They've seen me grow up, dump boyfriends, get new ones, and learn from my mistakes. It's definitely hard leaving here but I know it's for the best. Everyone has been so good to me here and I will always appreciate that. I will for sure be coming back to visit often.

On another note: I am starting x-ray school monday! Ahhhhh!!!! I'm so excited but nervous at the same time! I can't wait to get the house finished up this week and get my study room fixed up! I am getting internet at my house sometime soon because I will need it for school but not sure exactly when. I am waiting til we get some kind of satellite internet in town so I can use that. I am going to try to stay updated on my blog at Lance's parents house. I will definitely let yall know how my first day goes!

Five Question Friday!

Oh yeah it's friday! Even though its Friday the 13th, which really doesn't bother me, I am so excited because my work is throwing me a going away fish fry tonight at my boss' house. Then I am having my last girls night out before school starts tomorrow night! This should be a great weekend! I have not participated in Five Question Friday in so long, so i'm excited to start up again!!

1. Have you ever visited another country?
Yes, Mexico! I went on a cruise in January of 08'. We visited Costa Mayo (however u spell it) and Cozumel! It was a blast and soooo beautiful!

2. Where is the strangest place you have ever been?
That is a really hard one! I wouldn't necessarily call this "strange", but back in 2005 my mom, sister, and me went on vacation to yellowstone national park with my grandparents. As we were traveling there, we stopped for the night in this tee tiny town in the middle of nowhere (I forgot what state it was in, Kansas maybe?). That town just rubbed me the wrong way! It seriously looked like one of those dead towns that had disease infested people that were going to kill you. The hotel we even stayed at was freaky. I did NOT like that place and I made sure we left FIRST thing that morning!

3. What is your favorite season?
I can't choose a "favorite" because I love them all in their own ways. I love summer because I love it being warm, but enough is enough! It's to darn humid in Arkansas this summer! I loovveee fall because I get to dress cute in my swearters and scarfs (i'm addicted to scarfs). And the only thing i love about winter is the snow and Christmas. I hate the cold. I love spring because it feels so nice to start having warm weather and pretty flowers after a cold season!

4. What one song will always cheer you up?
That Jack and Diane song. It's an oldie. But a good oldie!

5. What Disney character do you resemble most?
I would definitely say, Aerial off of The Little Mermaid! Because, I love the ocean! And I have a prince charming :).

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!

Vacation is Over

Well i'm back from Alabama and Georgia. I had soo much fun! The Georgia Aquarium is one of the most amazing things i've ever experienced. I was like a little kid in a candy store (not kidding). I love anything that deals with the ocean so I was all about going to the aquarium. It took us a good 4 hours to go through the entire thing and thats not with little kids with us. I would HIGHLY recommend going there. It was only $30 for the daily pass to! I would have paid $75 because it was so good. We shopped every day that we were there..and I found some amazing deals! If you are ever in Birmingham..I suggest going to The Summit outlet mall and eating at Chuy's. It's an amazing mexican restaurant that sit up on a hill. I have tons of pictures I want to share with everyone but my memory card from my camera doesn't fit in my computer at work. So I have to transfer them over to my laptop then put them on a memory stick. Here area few pictures from Hannah's facebook that I decided to grab. I'll post pics as soon as I can!

At Chuy's

Scary Shark!

Beautiful Jellyfish!

My Inspiration Board

I have gotten EXTREMELY addicted to design blogs. Everything from how to decorate, organize, and DIY projects blogs. They are so fun to read, and they have taught me so much stuff already. I love all of the DIY projects that you can do for so cheap! I have also learned when coming to decorating and throwing parties, it's really easy to make up an inspiration board of what you want your party to look like so you can go off that. My bestfriend Whitney's sister, Erica (also a very good friend of mine) is pregnant!! As soon as we found out she was going to have a baby, Whitney and I immediately started planning the baby shower. Erica will be finding out tomorrow what the sex is going to be. But since Whitney and I are in such a hurry to plan this shower, we have already came up with a theme that will fit either a boy or a girl! I got all of the pictures off design blogs to help create an inspiration board!

The theme is VINTAGE! Well actually it's called "nesting". I got almost my entire inspiration board pictuers off of . I absolutely love Morgan! The first time I took a look at her blog, I immediately was hooked. I would definitely go check her out. Here is my inspiration board:

We are going to try to do DIY as much as possible. As you can see in the pictures, there are lots of candles, plates, mason jars, picture frames that just lay around your house. So i thought this would be the perfect baby shower. I am also going to make some tissue paper pom poms to hang up above the cake table. and maybe use some for centerpieces.

I am so excited about this baby shower I can hardly stand it!! I'll be giving more details as we plan more. I just thought I would share the theme with everyone! Tell me what you think!!

Prayer Request

If you have already seen my older post about Annika, then you know she is a little 5 year old with Leukemia. She lives in my town and she is the most precious little girl! She has been doing really well these past few weeks, but this week is going to be extremely hard on her. She is starting a new chemo treatment today called the "Red Devil". Its so strong, most adults cant handle it. She has to take it for 4 days in a row. She will be staying at the Arkansas Childrens Hospital all week. If you feel led, will you say a prayer for Annika and her family?

I'm Still Here

I have been neglecting blogging lately because I have been so busy with work. That's my only time to blog is when i'm at work, so if i'm wrapped up in something, I can't blog :(. On the bright side, i'll be getting internet soon at home so i'll get to blog more! I have a little over 3 weeks before I start school!! I'm so excited to. I got a package in the mail yesterday showing my clinical schedule. And guess what they put me on for my VERY FIRST clinical?! THE E.R.!!! I have been really excited about doing clincals in the ER but didnt except them to make that my very first. And noone else in my class is doing ER with me. But I know i'll do good. I've been watching lots of BostonMed to help me :D haha!
Here are some things i've been up to lately:

  • We had Caden's birthday party last weekend. I can't believe he's 4!
  • My sister and brother-in-law are moving to Dallas, TX in a week.
  • I had my first Gyno appointment. It went ok. I loved the Dr. I could defintely see her delievering my babies one day.
  • You probably didnt want to know about my Gyno appointment. Sorry.
  • My hair is now a really dark brown. It's pretty. Want to see?



  • I am planning a girl's night with my best friends. It's our first girls night all summer, and our last. We are going to a new restaurant called Bravo, and going to get a booth that you can close the little curtain shut. Then we are going to the comedy club! So excited!
  • Lance and I are going to Atlanta to watch our good friend Keith, fish in the FLW tournament. He's a pro fisherman, and this is like the superbowl to fisherman. I'm also going to the Atlanta Aquarium which i'm so excited about!!! And also to Ikea for my very first time! I'll let you know allll about that!

It's all becoming a reality

When I first got my acceptance letter to Radiologic Technology (x-ray) school..I was so excited and sooo relieved! But it really didnt actually hit me because I really didnt have to do anything but just wait til orientation. Orientation rolled around about a month ago, and BAM! It feels like a ton of bricks smacking you in the face telling you "It's real! It's actually real!". We got our handbooks, purchased our lead markers, had to sign alot of papers, and was told of some of the stuff we had to take care of before school started.

...Now it's really starting to sink in. I just got through with my CPR class today. Me and my mom have been searching the internet for my books to get them at the cheapest price possible. We had to buy my tennis shoes, and I ordered my scrubs the other day. Unfortunately, our class has to go with a certain scrub brand
and two colors, Royal Blue and Ceil Blue. So I had to make sure I was in those guidelines. Why couldn't we have pink or teal? Like super cute colors?! Guess thats not what x-ray school is all about huh? LOL!! Here are the scrubs I decided to order:

These two pics are the tops. They have 4 front pockets so
all of my accessories can go in there. They are not this color though.

These are the bottoms. I made sure I got the flare leg. Can't be having
tight legged pants. lol

These are in the royal blue and ceil blue colors also.
Notice the arrows.

And this is my lab coat i'm going to get. They say it's freezing
in the classrooms and clinics so I'm defintely getting one of these.

It's all starting to become a reality!

What would you do with my mantel?

We are still working on the new house. Slowly but surely. I love decorating, throwing parties for friends, and anything crafty!! But since we have moved into a new house that is very country, it's so hard to decorate my mantel! Our living room walls is this beautiful wood that still looks like new, even though the house was built back in the war days. So what would you do to this mantel? Give me any suggestions!

I dont think the pictures go together, and I dont really like my dvd player and stuff on top. There are dvd's and book on that very bottom shelf now, but I have a dvd holder that i'm about to put those in. So what would you do to spruce up this mantel? Put pictures on the walls? Move things? Add vases? Anything?!

Will you please pray?

I made a Praying for Annika button. Feel free to grab it for your blog!

I just found out a couple days ago about a little girl in my town that just got diagnosed with a rare form of acute lymphocytic leukemia. Her name is Annika Nichols. Her parents are Davey and Missy Nichols. As I do not know them personally, only by seeing them around town, my heart breaks for Annika and her family. Annika is only 5 years old. They have immediately started her on treatments. I am going to make a blog button if its ok by the family. So yall will be able to put her precious picture on your blog to remind people to pray for her. I'll keep you updated when I know more information.

Isn't she just beautiful?
