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 …

Time is Flying By...

Wow does time fly. Between baby, work, and life, I don't have a lot of spare time! When I do get it you will see me watching junk TV or taking a nap.

We have been busy! Baby girl turned 1. O-N-E! I cannot believe it has been a year since she was born. She is officially 13 months old. She is stubborn, funny, and a talker. 

She still won't walk. Just refuses to try, even though she can walk with toys and up and down furniture. She gets that from her dad. I know I'm not stubborn at all! 

We went on our very first family vacation! We headed to Atlantic City in June. We had a great time. We won some money, enjoyed the weather, and had fun.


Cassie loved walking the boardwalk. She loved that everyone wanted to talk to her.

We celebrated her actual birthday with a mini unicorn cupcake and SHE LOVED IT!

She hated the ocean, but loved the sand. We couldn't keep her out of it.


We had such a fun time! It was different from our other vacations, but we had a blast and can't wait to go …

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…

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

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 wanti…

Happy Friday!!!

It's Friday and the weekend is almost here!

I used to watch American Idol and I remember watching Kelly Clarkson win. This week she performed at the last season of American Idol and it was awesome. 

This song is so powerful and beautiful. 


It breaks my heart to hear this song and imagine as a little girl what that would feel like to feel unworthy or unloved.

I was so lucky to have an amazing father who loved my sister and I unconditionally and always put our interests first. I am now lucky to have two wonderful men in my life and soon to be in my daughter's life. My father is getting promoted to Papaw and my husband to Daddy. 

After listening to this song, I reflect and realize that my daughter and I are so lucky to have my hubby. He is such a good person. He is passionate in everything and that includes his fierceness in loving and protecting his family. 

I am thankful everyday that he and I are in this together and we can't wait to welcome our little princess.

Until next time,

Throwback Thursday

When I was younger, my parents constantly said that time flies by. Well I have always wanted life to hurry up and get to the next thing, but it's true, time really does fly by.

I found this old picture of the Hubby and I when we started dating in college. 


We have been together almost nine years. It's crazy how I feel like it was just yesterday, but I can't remember life before him.

This year will really be a big year to remember. Our little girl (yep you heard me right!A LITTLE GIRL!) will be here before we know it!


This precisely describes our feelings! I cannot wait to see how this becomes our best year yet! 

Until next time,

Kara
