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…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!



Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Kara

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
