weekend... and emotional

Hello everyone. I hope you had a great Monday, and that your weeks are short like mine!
My weekend wasn't super eventful, but sometimes that is nice.
Friday: Scott and I decided we needed a night in. We were both tired from hectic weeks, and wanted sometime together. We put in some episode of The Office. They still make me laugh, and we were in bed before 10! (but not before some cuddles with M)
Saturday: I slept AWFUL that night...I woke up with a sore throat. boo. Scott got up at 5 am to go hunting, and I couldn't go back to sleep. So Milli and I had a great day of doing absolutley nothing. We watched movies, took naps and cuddled all day.
Sunday: I finally told myself I have got to get some of our boxes unpacked and put away before I go crazy. So Scott helped me (THANKFUL) and we got quite a bit done. Not everything, but still some progress. I also turned an old dresser into a bookshelf/tv stand. It's still drying so I can't wait to show you pictures hopefully tomorrow! Milli was very helpful yesterday...
Monday: Oh Monday.....My school day went well. We did our "Thanksgiving" dinner and so I ate way too much at school.... but the kiddos enjoyed. Tomorrow is pj day so I am looking forward to that, and then its off to see my momma! Can't wait.
But on a weird/emotional note. I can't stop crying lately. I am struggling with being emotional. I don't know who to trust at times. I worry about friends and if they are back stabbing me, and it's somewhat consuming my mind.... Am I wrong to be like this? ugh. These quotes made so much sense, but it's hard when you think you can trust a person.... and then at the same time are unsure...
Sorry to end on a downer.... I had to get it out...

5 Friday!

Happy Friday everyone!
I'm joining the link up for 5 on Friday!
ONE: So some exciting news as to why I wasn't blogging yesterday. One of the kiddos I teach...well his stepdad runs the movie theater here. We were talking when he picked up his kid about when Catching Fire would be showing. Well he was doing a sneak peek for some of his friends, and he said I could go! So my cousin Courtney and I went and  got to watch Catching Fire, YESTERDAY before it was open to the public.... FOR FREE. Yeah...I was so stoked! I loved loved the books, and this just was such an awesome way to end my day! Ps. the movie.... AHHHHH MAZING
Highly recommend it!
TWO: I have an amazing friends....I am pretty blessed...and when I got home from work today I found a package at my front door. One of my amazing best friends, Erika, got me this beautiful painting "just because" "it was you" :) she knows me so well. love you.
THREE: Every Friday I get to watch the younger ones for an hour. We call it toddler group, but I have a family friend who brings her daughter, and we take a photo every Friday. Love it!
FOUR: I am so looking foward to hopefully getting out of town tomorrow, to Casper for some actual shopping. I would love to get enough stuff for a photo wall in the living room. I would also love to finally print some wedding photos! Civilization watch out.. (if the weather/roads cooperate)
Ps. If you have any ideas for a photo wall, send me the pics!
FIVE: I love coming home to Milli. We always cuddle, and she is my buddy. Last night we laid in bed an watched Grey's while Scott watche Thursday night football. She sneaks into bed also with me at about 5:30 every morning...good thing we have a king size bed so her dad doesn't notice!
love her.
who couldn't love that face?
Happy Weekend Friends!

Weekend. (Birthday/Wine)

Happy Tuesday.
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend, and Monday. I was so exhausted I was in bed by 8 last night, and totally spaced my Monday post.
So Friday was my dad (step)'s birthday, well Saturday was my sister Morgan's birthday. Scott and I had these big plans to meet her in Laramie for her birthday, because it was a big one.... 21!!!!
Well we woke up to snow, cold, and 50+ winds. So, needless to say the roads were too bad to travel, and I had quite a few tears. Morgan is my first sibling born, the sibling to make me a sibling. So I was really excited to help her celebrate. But we have decided to make it up to her a weekend.
Morgan is amazing. I will never forget first seeing her, and how proud of her I was, and I still am. She is so kind hearted, and always try to put herself in the other person's shoes. She is sweet, smart, and is the wityest (sp) person I know.
Love you Morgan Amanda.

So since our plans got completely shut down, we found out wine tasters was going on. So we decided to have a date and go. It was a lot of fun, but I was mainly happy just to finally be spending time with my husband!

Sunday was a relaxing day for the most part. Scott enjoyed football, and I slept and read all day. (we aren't as young as we used to be haha)
Luckily this week is going fast so far, exactly one week from today we will finally be on holiday!
I love my job, but I am ready for a break with family.
Happy Tuesday!

Birthday for Papa... and a little extra

Happy Friday.
I hope you all have had a wonderful week. Mine was hectic, and I couldn't be more glad to welcome in Friday. I love Friday's because we get off work at 1.
But more importantly today is my dad (step)'s birthday!!!
He is an amazing guy, and if I was to list everything he has taught me since I was 5 years old this blog would be more of a novel. He has been not only a great dad to my sisters and I, but a wonderful husband, teacher, coach, and just all around guy.
Happy Birthday Papa P. Hope you have a fantastic day.


love you!
 so a couple things I have to share from the week:
1. Alison my best Canadian friend sent Scott and I the most amazing wedding gift ever. I teared up honestly. It's a custome cutting board, that has our wedding invitation on it. Thank you again...amazing.
2. I love getting these snap chats from one of my besties. almost everyday. they make my day constantly.
3. Milli is constantly making me smile. This past week was a big basketball game. Kansas vs. Duke. I am a huge Duke fan. But a lot of my family are Kansas fans...but I had to get M in the spirit for the big game. (duke lost) still upset.
Then yesterday she literally pushed backed the curtain to look outside. Nosey much?

4. It was emotional week, and at the end of the day I just keep reminding myself how blessed I really am. Sorry for the lack of blogging, but like I said I was a little out of it.
so I am chosing happiness.
Happy weekend. xxoo

Happy Veteran's Day.

Happy Veteran's Day. 
I just want to say thank you to all that have served, are serving, or even getting ready to think about serving. Also a huge thank you to the military families. 

I wanted to take today to honor instead of write about my weekend...

I have a few very SPECIAL people in my life who served and are serving this country.


1. My pop-e. My pop-e served in WWII. He even has a jacket that has bullet holes going through, and the scary part. He was wearing it when it happened. He served the South Pacific and Japan. My grandma and him were married when he came back... He even remembers the song playing on the ship as he was coming into Seattle. (shown below) I don't have any pictures of him in his military gear on my computer, but will have some soon! 

Thank you pop-e. I love you.

2. My dad (step). He was in the army when he went to college. He served for serveral years, and was almost deployed to Desert Storm (Gulf War). It ended right before he was deployed. He continued to serve until his service was up. Once again I sadly don't have a picture of him in his military gear.
Thank you pops. Love you.
3. My one and only, one of the best friends a girl could ask for. My gemini soulmate. Casey.
She has served for the Army all through college and currently still is serving. She is basically a bad ass. She is my sweets and I am constantly proud of her! love you g.g.e.g.
Thank you all. This video always makes me cry, but at the same time so happy for them.

Distractions.... Squirrel!

Happy Thursday!!! 

I had these huge plans of blogging last night, and I may have got a little distracted... by the CMA's. They were honestly one of the best award shows I have watched in a long time. The performances, skits, were just awesome. 

This was me... (distracted)

Well if you didn't watch them you need to! so funny! loved the intro by Brad and Carrie... and duck dynasty joining them! 

(pictures from google)

One of my favorite performances:

I loved the tribute to George Jones...I couldn't find a good video..but amazing...anything with King George is amazing...  
The man is like a fine wine... only gets better and more handsome with age..

from google

So as you can see, I got super distracted and forgot to blog! 
I had a bit of a rough day at work... but I came home to see one of the four pillow covers had arrived! I got them all from etsy, but here is my first one! so excited. it's a map of London! 

Love... fits our bright colored living room that is slowly coming together... 

can't wait to show you all when it's finished! 

I hope you all have a great Friday! I have inservice for 8 hours. boo hiss.

Weekend, Babies (gender), and Halloween

My oh my it's Monday, and I completely spaced, and thought I had blogged since last Monday. Turns out I was wrong Happy Monday Kae. haha. Anyways so many exciting things to show and share with you! 

Rewind to Halloween: So my kiddos got a Halloween Party all day. It was nice to not have to teach, but at the same time super chaotic when you have a bunch of 3 and 4 year olds in costumes running around, eating candy! It was fun! I was a spider again!!! 

Some of the amazing ladies I work with! 

Of course I had to go see the twins. They didn't get to trick-o-treat because it was about 30 degrees out and windy. Too cold for the sweethearts. So auntie Kae went and saw them. Cutest Buzz and Woody ever!!!! 

After Scott and I went to dinner with some of the football coaches, and they came over for awhile. It was really nice to just relax. 

But the biggest news.... My cousin found out the GENDER of peanut! 

It's a.... BOY!!!!!!!!
(you will be able to see that haha)

Time to buy more boy stuff : )

A very eventful but amazing Halloween

Friday: I had to work and Scott had the day off. I'm not pouting. He went rock hunting in the desert.... don't ask. SUPER boring to me haha. It was a work day at work, so it was quick. The rest of the day I relaxed and then when Scott got home we just went to bed! We were so tired. 

Milli did get her new collars! She looks so pretty!

Saturday: Scott and I continued to sleep. We slept in tell 11! I couldn't believe it! We then had to go to lunch with his grandma and her husband. We love Scott's grandma, but her husband is a little difficult to get a long with. After we stopped by and saw Colton, Cortnee, and the twins. Scott finally got to meet their new puppy Sawyer. 

She loved her Uncle Scott.

The twins woke up and wanted to play outside!!!

I love that they were wearing the hats we bought them!!!

That evening we started to put some stuff away, and then went to bed!

Sunday: First off...LOVE THE TIME CHANGE. I felt like I got so much sleep. We watched football and kept cleaning and putting stuff away. I made cookies, and some adult cider which I found on pinterest. I highly recommend it. 

Nom. Nom.

Today: Oh monday. I am glad it my relaxing time. I had a good work day, very busy, and then came home and cleaned up the hoses and yard for winter time. I started racking the yard, and got half way done before the sun went down. Now that the time change happened 5 pm makes for a dark evening. 

Now I am off to finish dinner! I hope you all had a great weekend and happy monday!
