Five Question Friday

My Little Life
I'm so happy its friday! I need a relaxing weekend. It wont be so relaxing though. Lance and I have so much stuff to do on the new house! You guys are gonna die when you see what we have done to this house! We have pretty much ripped it inside out! We are completely re-doing out bedroom, cadens room, and the kitchen. And we are painting the bathroom. I can't wait for it to all be done so I can show yall before and after pictures! I'm also excited because it's Mama M's Five Question Friday! Go check her out if you haven't already!

1. Do you sing karaoke? If so, what is your go to song?

I have been in a karaoke bar before and watched people sing but never did. I was like 13. I'm not sure if I would have the guts to get up in front of a bunch of people and humiliate myself by trying to sing. I'm a horrible singer. But I think if it were a bunch of my girlfriends together, I would go for it!

2. What is your favorite coffee drink?
This is a toughy! I love my coffee w/ just one splenda packet and some french vanilla creamer...yum yum! Then i also like the frappe's from mcdonalds. Lance got me a frappe machine for Christmas and I love it!! You can make all kinds of frappes!

3. If you could choose your own name, what would it be?
Hm.. I'm not sure. I think I would stick to Kasey just because my mom named me that. But I love Ava. I think i'm going to end up naming my daughter that. It's just so pretty to me!

4. Were you ever bullied?
Jr. High was a bad time for me. Girls are evil in jr. high. Always talking about you behind your back, then friends to your face. I had a girl that constantly picked on me and talked so much crap to my best friend about me and tried taking her away. I FINALLY got the guts to stand up to her and she finally backed down. Then I had another girl that always acted like my friend in High School but she was always jealous of me that she even got my boyfriend to break up with me. When she sees me in my small town, she always tries to say hi and talk... i don't give her a time of day. haha.

5. How often do you eat fast food?
Alot. Shame Shame. I really have been trying to stop. My life is just so busy sometimes, I feel thats the quickest way to eat. I'm starting to read Jillian Michaels Winning by Losing, and she teaches you all kinds of stuff! So I hope that helps me learn how to shop for groceries and cook better!

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Happy Birthday Chad

Yesterday was my brother's birthday. He would  have been 27. Chad died September 4, 2000 (my birthday), on the way to my birthday party. He was going around a curve and flipped his truck. They rushed him to a hospital in Little Rock, AR...but he had a lot of internal bleeding. It does not seem almost 10 years since he has been gone. I miss him every single day. But I know he is a much better place than I am. Chad was the hunk of the school. All the girls wanted him. He wanted all the girls too. It seemed like every week he had a new girlfriend. I was always judgemental of all his girlfriends...because I was the only girl that needed to be in his life..hehe. There were only a few girls that I really liked. Chad was my bestfriend and the best brother a little sister could ask for. Of course he picked on me and my sister, but he also loved us very much and would never let anything happen to us. I remember the last words he said to me. I was leaving for my birthday party and he was getting into his truck. He gave me a kiss and said "I love you, see you when I see you". I'll never forget those words! Here are a few pictures of Chad...some where when he was younger before he passed away. I wish I had some more pictures but these were just the ones on his mom's facebook.

Chad is on the left in the Cocoa Puffs shirt lol

He loved fishing. And not wearing a shirt.

Fun Weekend

I'm not sure if I mentioned it before, but Lance is a HUGE fisherman. Loves fishing! One of his good friends is actually a pro. Well, we always go to the Bassmaster Classic every year. Well last year was my first year. The Bassmaster Classic is the "superbowl" of fishing. Anyways, this year's Bassmaster Classic is in Birmingham, AL. My mom live about 30 minutes from Birmingham so we're staying with her! We left this morning at 5:45! I told Lance that I loved him way to much for me to be waking up at 5 in the morning just to go to a fishing tournament! We got to Birmingham at noon, and went straight to the classic. We were pretty hungry when we got there so we grabbed a sausage hotdog and it was DELICIOUS. well i ended up feeling really really sick 30 minutes later. Ugh. I walked around for another 2 hours trying not to vomit all over the place but I finally told Lance I had to leave. So we left and went to my mom's. I felt so bad for making Lance leave and he missed the concert and weigh-in. But we still have tomorrow and sunday! I am feeling a little better so hopefully by tomorrow i'll be ready to go! I'll be posting pictures soon! Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!

10 Things I Love about My Love

There are so many people that put such a damper on Valentine's Day. I love Valentine's day. But I also feel that you don't have to have a day to show love to your significant other. I'll tell you about the valentines day Lance and I had! It started Thursday night, we decided to go out of town to a Lowe's to look for some stuff for our new house. So we QUICKLY decided to eat at Chili's for our vday dinner. That was our valentine's together :). We both split the bill, so we both spent money on each other for V-day. I loved it. We were able to just talk and laugh, and have no disruptions! But for the actual Valentine's day, Lance and I did nothing but work on the new house all day! And when I mean all day, I mean from 10:30 that morning til 8 that night! Whew we were beat! So, I thought I would do Mama M's Top 10 Things I Love About My Love!

The Top 10 Things I Love About My Love!
10. That he enjoys cooking..and he's really good at it!
9. That he never calls me by "Kasey" unless he's upset with me. It's always babe.
8. He never raises his voice. He always speaks very calm when we are in an argument.
7. His desire to go to church every sunday & be a better Christian.
6. How he encourages me to be a better person.
5. That he is constantly reminding me that i'm "yelling" when we are having a conversation in a restaurant..but he really knows..that's just how i talk.
4. That he's is very patient with me and his son.
3. That he is very protective over me and i know he has my back on anything.
2. How he tells me he loves me at the end of EVERY phone conversation.

And the #1 Thing I Love About My Love:
1. How forgiving he is to me! Without that, we wouldn't be where we are today!

I Love You Lance!

Saying Hi

Hey Everyone,

i just wanted to stop in and say hi! I haven't been able to blog all week :(. I don't know if i mentioned but me and lance were trying to find another house to rent because our landlord's son needed the house we are in right now, so we have to move. For over a month, we have looked and looked and looked and NOTHING! well thank God for friends! Our friend's grandpa has an old house that he wanted to rent out. And it's just perfect for us! Out in the pretty country. It's a very old house, but thankfully Lance builds and remodels houses for a living. So, we are going to turn this old house, UPSIDE DOWN! This little house has so much potential and I can't wait to see what we are going to do. We are putting new ceiling in our bedroom, caden's bedroom, and in the kitchen and dining room. New carpet in our bedroom. New flooring in the kitchen and dining room. And fresh paint in our bedroom, caden's bedroom, the bathroom and maybe the guest bedroom. I'm also thinking about staining the kitchen cabinets and try to paint the countertops "marble". I have heard about it, and googled it today. It looks complicated so i'm not sure yet. If you know how to do this, comment please and tell me how!! Or anything else that may be simple! I'm going to take before and after pictures and post them when we're done! Can't wait to show you guys!!

Five Question Friday

My Little Life

It's Friday. A busy Friday for me. I've been busy at work. Then I've got to go buy condiments on my lunch break for our sunday school party tonight. Go to the party tonight, go home and pack for the weekend. Wrap my best friend's little girl's birthday gifts. Then hopefully sleep! Last but not least, I can't forget Five Question Friday! Head over to Mama M's blog and check her out.

1. What are you most afraid of?
Alot of things. Dying and leaving my family behind. Being unhappy my whole life. Being alone. Snakes. ugh, don't get me started on snakes. I've got a lot of fears, but I just try to put them in the back of my mind. Why stress over things that you can't change!

2. Do you use a flat iron or curling iron?
Flat iron! I used to have really short hair. But now that it has grown out some, i've been curling it with a curling iron and it's so cute! But I strighten my hair everyday. If you want to buy a good flat iron that will not torture your hair. Buy the Kyoski. I believe thats what its called. Of course it's a little pricey but totally worth every penny! My hair does not have one split end!!

3. Hands-free or phone to the ear?
phone to the ear. I dont think i could wear one of those bluetooth ear pieces either. but i like texting more than anything. :)
4. Do you have a matching bedroom set?
No. Maybe one day, but not right now. We have a light wood colored bed. And medium colored wood dressers. haha. You should see our nightstands. Lance built his (he's a construction worker), and he has drawers in his, and it's pretty high. Mine has no drawers, a completely different color, and a lot lower. They look so funny! Oh, and I have a black lamp, and he has a lamp that has ducks on it. We really should try to find some matching nightstands and lamps!

5. Do you believe in the paranormal?
umm..yes and no. I like hearing ghost stories, and of course walking in a dark house hearing creepy things, you start getting thoughts in your head. A town about 45 minutes away from my town, there is a long gravel road that has a story behind it for YEARS now! A man was walking on a railroad when he fell, and the train ran over him, and lost his head. So they way to see him is, you drive down the road until you get to a 4-way stop, you turn completely around so your facing back towards the same road you had driven on. You blink your lights 3 times and honk your horn 3 times and just wait. Then all the sudden far down the road, you start seeing a small blueish light. The light is the man lantern, he's supposed to be trying to find his head. The light sometimes starts getting bright, and side to side on the road. It even gets close to your car. It's SO fun to go!! I've been so many times that I couldn't count on my hands. The story has even been on the tv show Unsolved Mysteries. Til this day, they still don't know what that light is. Spooky huh!

Keep a lookout for a post coming up about some advice that I need. And I REALLY need it! It will be coming soon!
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
