Let's Catch Up!

WOW, it's been over 6 months since I have last blogged. It's pretty crazy how life can get super busy and things like blogging get pushed to the back burner.

Let's catch up on life. 

In March, I switched to a new job. I now work for a Foster Care company. I help license foster families. It's such a rewarding job to know that we help families impact children's lives everyday. 

In June, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Cassie.



I was scheduled for a c-section, but she decided she wanted to come early and so my water broke and off we went to the hospital! Talk about throwing plans out the window!



The delivery went smooth and mommy and baby did wonderful. It was a HUGE adjustment to having a newborn. People do not tell how different life is, I don't know if you can comprehend until it happens.



She is now 3 1/2 months old and growing like crazy! She has started to laugh and talks all the time. She can roll over but would prefer not to be on her stomach. She is always wanting to sit up and won't lay back! 

We absolutely love her, but people do not tell you how hard it is. I'm not going to lie, there were a few days I wasn't sure if I could do it. You are tired, she is crying, there is nothing you can do to soothe her... it is hard. But I think we are over the hump of colic crying, but that period of time sucked. 



Now it's a lot of fun getting the smiles and laughs when she sees you.

She is a girl after her Mom & Dad's own heart. She loves The Office, this is her laughing while watching!



The Hubby and I just celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary. It's crazy to believe that we have been married that long! We celebrated by spending a night away. 



We golfed, went to the casino and ate dinner! It was great having some one-on-one time together. PLUS we came out ahead as winners! #WINNING

I am back in my work fantasy football league this year. I was 2-0 until this week. Ugh, all my players decided to get together and suck this week! 



But you can't deny how cute she looks rooting on the Colts!

I am hoping I can get back to blogging again. We are starting to get a routine down and Cassie is starting to play more and more. She really prefers that someone sits with her and talks, that gets the most laughs and smiles!



It won't be long and the Hubby will be coaching basketball. I can't wait to see how she likes the games. We took her to the local football game and she loved it. She is nosey and was looking around and watching people.



I hope all has been going well for everyone! We are hanging in there and figuring out this new adventure together!

Until next time,

Kara

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Las Vegas Once Again!

The Hubby and I just made our 8th trip to Las Vegas! Our favorite place to vacation. Baby Girl got to stay with her Mimi and Pappy while we were gone.

We had a great trip filled with food, fun, and plenty of gambling. We didn't hit it big, but it was a great vacation of spending quality time with the Hubby.


We stayed 3 nights at the Rio. The Rio is just off the Strip. We like staying here because it's not near as busy as being on the Strip. 


The Rio recently added a KISS themed putt-putt golf course. We played and it was fun, but I am horrible! 

September is a huge month for us. We both had big birthdays (3-0... let's not talk about that) and our anniversary. So we both decided instead of buying gifts we would do something fun in Vegas. We decided to see a show and we picked Absinthe. 

It is SO worth the money. If you get offended by ANYTHING, please do not see it. It is acrobatics mixed with crude comedy. We had a great time! We saw this show when it first opened back in 2011 …

Spring Break in Las Vegas

Once again we traveled to our favorite place.... LAS VEGAS! We had four days packed with fun. The weather was great while we were there. In Indiana, however, it was terrible, so a good week to miss!

By now everyone should know we are planners and love to get good deals. Well Las Vegas is a town of deals if you look close enough. Before we went we were able to snag some items from our MyVegas game on Facebook. We had two FREE night helicopter tours over the strip, a complimentary picture with the helicopter, two FREE show tickets to KA at MGM, two FREE show tickets to The Beatles LOVE at the Mirage, and two 2-for-1 Buffet tickets to the Mirage buffet. All those items together were valued at over $600. We paid $0 for them. I also got some items off Groupon for super cheap!

So before we even left we had planned out what nights we were doing what and so on. 
We arrived in Las Vegas on April 1st and headed directly to our hotel. This was our first time at Harrah's. We loved our location. …
