Hilarious Outtakes


I love this week's I♥Faces contest(www.iheartfaces.com), Hilarious Outtakes. I have so many photos of my favorite people that are crazy and silly and I am so happy to finally have a chance to use them! So this is my official entry in this week's contest...


My beautiful sister Kaitlyn acting her usual silly self on Christmas day in the snow...



One of my fun babysitting nights with Carly and her siblings... (things can get a little crazy)

Gracie has some of the cutest dimples I have ever seen!

Jasmine is one of my favorite little people. We always have an awesome time together and she loves making me laugh; which is why I love these next two pictures so much...



AND...
(i'm not sure what she is doing because I told her to look at me and smile and she came up with this pose on her own...haha that's why I love her)

Rough time lately...

So recently I have been thinking a lot. A lot about my future; where I am going in life. In order to look at your future, though, you have to evaluate the path that has led to the present, in order to get to your future. I have been particularly concentrating on my relationships; the good, the bad, and the ugly.

One theme has remained the same; I was a significant part of their life. I was “one of the great” girls that formed their idea of what they will eventually end up with. The key word in that being was. I am a past, a no longer. Most of the men in my past, long after ending our relationship, have had a conversation with me that involved saying how fantastic I was and how I was one of the most important relationships in their life, and yet I am still the one standing alone. How is it that I am/was so fantastic and awesome but I still am ALONE?

I have even gone as far to look at myself and wonder what I have done wrong in EACH and EVERY single relationship. I am happy to say I have improved over time, and as of the most recent relationship I feel I could not have done anything else to save it. I did almost everything right and it still wasn’t enough.

So what is the purpose of all of this? Why even try? I have tried giving up. I have tried giving it all I have. I don’t really know what is wrong with me. I have tried being a good girl like I was taught to be. I have tried being the girl who “guys want girls to be”. I know what is right and wrong and ultimately I am TIRED. I am tired and hurt and alone. I am tired of being who everyone else wants me to be. I just want to be myself and finally have a man look at me and, despite all of my weirdness, say, “She is the single greatest thing in my life.” She is the ONE. I want him to say that and mean it with all of his heart. I am tired of lies. I am tired of seeing what other people have and longing for it.

I sound so pathetic and weak.

I feel a wall building around me and I am afraid it will get too high for anyone else to see my heart and know how much love is there to share. I am just afraid another hurt like the last will break me forever and I don’t want to be bitter. I try to be optimistic but this is crushing me little by little. All around me my friends are getting engaged and married and having babies. I am so unbelievably happy for them but I felt that was so close I could taste it six months ago and now it’s a far off dream. I am trying to be strong and act like seeing them and everyone be so happy and in love isn’t killing me but it is a little.

Update time...

Its been a while since I have posted anything and so I thought I would get on here and give an update on my life... I don't have many readers but this is good for me to get it out so...here it goes:)

Well, work is the same.. boring as always. I wish I had the resources and client base to my photography full time. I am still learning though. I wish I could go back to school for this. I have always known I love photography but I never considered it for a career until now. I love capturing something other people look at and say "wow!" :)

My love life is also the same... I long for someone to call mine and who wants to call me his.. I want someone who has chosen me to wrap their arms around me and look me in the eyes and without a word, I'll know I am never going to be alone again... I am living in a dream world though and life is not a fairy tale...

My new passion



Its been a little while but I am going in a million different directions... I am trying to make my dreams a reality. I got my first DSLR camera last week and can not wait to learn what all it can do! I am very eager to learn this new hobby and hope it will grow into a business that can prosper and I can enjoy. I think I did pretty good on my first time out. I think I have a pretty good eye for composition and what makes a good picture but its all of the technical things like FStops and all the tiny adjustments on this camera that are so confusing. I want to take a class but will have to wait for a bit until I can find some money for that. I already have some people asking me to take some shots of them for holidays and such... its a start!

Tomorrow starts the first day of my favorite month, OCTOBER!!! I just love the weather and the colors! Bonfires and sweaters! It is like the month that serves as the relaxation before the storm of the holidays that happen in the following months. Don't get me wrong, I love the holidays, but there is just something about October that makes me HAPPY.

Well, I am off to fix some dinner and relax with my book for a while.. by the way if you want a great read pick up Jodi Picoult's book Keeping Faith. It is very interesting and makes you think...

My Heart Hurts...



Today was an interesting day.. I woke up early because I went to bed early last night. I woke up to a text from someone special I have been trying to talk to but he always seems to be busy.. Stating simply "goodnight". Not sure where these random texts come from but it sure is a happy way to wake up. Kinda makes me feel like he was thinking about me.. Then again, I never get a text back when I actually text him so... who knows... all I really do know is I just recently realized how much I hate being single and how much I really do want to be loved. I mean I always knew how much I loved that feeling but until tonight and watching that movie... UH! If you are single and don't want to realize how painfully single you are DO NOT go watch The Proposal. Such a cute movie but man! I want to fall in love and have them fall for me too... I am ready. (Ryan Reynolds if you are out there and for some reason reading my blog... Come find me. I'll Say YES!!! lol... He is so freaking funny and SEXY!.. that's the best combination)

I know I whine a lot about how lonely I am but until tonight I didn't actually feel that bad as of recent. It just keeps hitting me in waves. I am a beautiful girl. I guess I have to start running so I can get that Sandra Bullock body but my extra cushioning is really the only thing that is wrong with me. I am beautiful, strong, nurturing, caring, giving, and surprising. I actually believe all of this now which I guess is what I have all of my past relationships to thank for. I am so tired of being alone and do NOT want to fool around with random guys to fill the void for one night. I am NOT that kind of girl nor do I want to become that kind of girl. I am the same good girl I have always been with a little experience in real life now. I know what love is and how it is supposed to feel. I am fully capable of loving with my entire heart and not only a portion until I am ready to move on. I am tired of moving on. I am ready to have the love of my life find me. Love is not a story solely for the movies. I know he is out there wanting me to. He just hasn't found me yet. So I am saying, I am here and waiting. I am ready whenever you are to take that leap of faith. And when you are ready, my arms are open wide to be your comfort and shelter. I'm not intense and crazy but I have an unending, unconditional love and when I give my heart the next time it will be the last.
I know this is a little intense and silly but I am tired of hurting and feeling sorry for myself. This isn't a plea but a promise. I am ready to fall hard into love for the last time and I won't hit rock bottom this time, because he will be there to catch me.

Uncertainty


I don't really know what to talk about today.. I have such mixed feelings about a lot of things right now. I don't like being single, but I know God is making this time for me so I can get my life in order. I gained all of the weight I had lost before my trip because of the stress of my Pappy passing and just being on vacation and indulging a little too much. I am back at square one. No big deal but I want it all to be gone now.

I also realized that I don't really like this online dating thing. I have tried it for about three months now and I just don't think its my thing. I like meeting new people but I feel like when we do meet in person it is too awkward and there are so many expectations for it to work as well as it did online and on the phone that when it doesn't it is a big let down. I think meeting in person as friends first and using email and instant message as a way of getting closer is what really works for me. Don't get me wrong, I have met some really amazing guys, I just prefer to be friends first in person.

I did reconnect with this really awesome guy that I met in middle school online. He lives really far away right now though. The crazy part about it is I know how great a relationship with him would be because we have talked throughout the years about how perfect we are for each other but the timing has never been right. I hope that in the future we might grow closer but that is for God to see. Until then, I guess I have to be patient and work on getting myself to where I want to be.

I really hate being alone but I know it is the way I should be right now. In relationships, I tend to forget about my needs and priorities and focus on him. So before I fall again, I need to work on my finances and my physical self.

I think that is enough babble for tonight...

Whirl wind trip















I am finally back from the East coast. Such an unexpected change of events while I was there. We left on Thursday and followed my parents in the car on the really really really long drive to Maryland. We arrived at my Uncle Sid's house around midnight and crashed. Friday morning, my pappy went into the emergency room and so we went there to see him. He was "smaller" and weaker than I had ever seen him. We spent some time with him and then had to leave to go to my cousin's wedding. Matthew and Heather were married and had one of the most unique ceremonies I had ever seen. Just lots of little personal touches made it a memorable occasion. On Saturday, we woke up and went to the hospital to see my pappy again. He was even more weak than on Friday. We hung out there for a while and visited with the numerous family members who came and went from the hospital. On Sunday, my sister and I woke up and left for Bethany Beach, DE. We spent Sunday in the hotel room recovering from the crazy weekend. Monday and Tuesday we went to the beach and to the pool. What a great sister trip. We needed it.

On Tuesday, we received the call that my pappy was gone. He is now dancing in heaven with my grandma. He is no longer in pain. It is so strange to miss someone but be happy they are gone for their own good. I love my grandparents and feel a huge absence in my life now that they are in heaven but I know they are happy and waiting for the day the rest of us join them. They weren't perfect but they lived their life for God and taught our family how to be good people. I come from a long line of great people.

I think that is why it has been so hard for me to find a great man.. because I have such great examples of men that I have a hard time finding a great man to measure up. I don't need a perfect man but I do want a man who is a man. I had such a great time this past week despite the bad circumstances. I don't get the opportunity to spend time with my family very often so when I get to see them twice in the same week, I savor it.

I will end this with some pictures from my trip...

Just me...

I am a woman, a lover, a fighter. I am passionate and kind. I love with all of my heart and soul. Before I realize I'm on the verge, I fall head over heals. Usually, I hit the bottom but really, really enjoy the fall. I am a giver in every sense of the word. I'm a dreamer. I can sit for hours and think about anything. I am a planner; I plan my future, I plan my life. I miss my grandma, I miss my grandmas. I aspire to be as giving and hardworking as my grandma Becky. I know I want to name one of my girls after her and my sister.. My first girl will be named, Kaidence Jayne. I'll call her Kaidi Jay. These are the things I think about and plan. I am afraid of rejection, sometimes so much it's crippling. I am focused and driven. I am easily distracted, except when there is something or someone important to focus on. I am beautiful. I like to read. I am smart and learn faster than most. I make my own blankets and taught my grandma to crochet. I like volunteer work. I am passionate about helping people. I want kids sooner rather later in life. I aim to be the best possible person.. I feel like I am almost there mentally but physically I am a work in progress.... I am a work in progress...

Sweet treats...

So not much to write about today. I have to say I really wish my job was more active. I absolutely hate that I am stuck at a chair in front of a computer all day. I am getting better at my job and feel like I am doing a good job. I just feel the need to get up and move around. My back has been hurting from the chairs and awkward position all day. We do have a lot of food days though and I have to say I am quite proud of myself for not over-indulging on those days which is a huge accomplishment. We have another one tomorrow that is mexican-themed. I am proud to say I played "Suzie homemaker" tonight and made homemade flan and tres leches cake. Hopefully they turn out ok (both have to be refrigerated overnight). I was pretty impressed with myself:) I have to say I would make a pretty excellent wifey... someday.

Unfortunately, my momentum for workouts has slowed and I only got up once this week (tuesday) before work to workout. I am going to do it again tomorrow and then mow the lawn tomorrow evening so that will make two days of workouts this week. I will workout again on Saturday but that still is only three times when I had planned on everyday at least going for a walk. It is a start though so I can't beat myself up too bad. I will do better next week.

On a higher note, I got the CUTEST linen pants in the mail today from Victoria's Secret! I also got some tanks and two bikinis. Note: their swimsuits/bikinis run SMALL. So, I have to send back the swimsuits but no biggie. I have some old ones I can wear if all else fails. Maybe I'll try a tankini. I leave for the East Coast in a month!!! Yay! So excited about seeing my family and spending some quality time with my sister. Its amazing how much I miss her.

Well, I had better get to sleep so I can wake up super duper early!

Two weeks later...


Yes. That's right. It has been two weeks since the dreadful break up. Honestly, I have more good days than bad. I am trying to work on myself and make myself happy; something I haven't done in years. I have started a new project entitled, Project Me. I have several phases to this modification that I think will lead to me finding who I am and the type of person God wants me to be.

The first phase of Project Me is mental. Since I am out of school and don't have a mentally challenging job, I have decided it is important for me to keep my mind active. I have started to read more. (If anyone wants a good book I will pass on this suggestion that my bestest friend Micah passed to me, Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin. It's a fairly quick read and keeps you interested the whole time. (thanks, Micah).) I have always loved reading and have never had the time to read more than one or two books at a time. I am going to try to average a book a week. I need to keep my mind active just like I am trying to keep my body active.

Which leads me to phase II of Project Me which is my physical self. I have been talking about losing these extra pounds that have been accumulating since high school but I think that now is the best time for me to do something about it. I am about 50 pounds away from being at my very best weight. I am about 10-15 pounds away from feeling better about who I am. So, my first goal for phase II will be to lose 15 pounds by the time I leave for vacation July 9th. Thats about a month away so I really need to get serious about working out. I have been doing Weight Watchers for about 2 weeks now and have lost about 4lbs. I now need to get my butt in gear and start working out. I know what to do but its getting off my lazy butt before or after work that is the block for me. My favorite workout time is, of course, right in the middle of my work day so I have to adjust my motivation to either wake up an hour earlier (which is super hard for me) or start working out right after I get home from work which is what I need to do. I might start getting up 30 min earlier and going for a run and then do 45 min of weight training after work. That way it is broken up into smaller groups and I don't feel so overwhelmed. I am going to track my workouts and eating on my other blog knowallfitness so if you want to see how I am doing I'll try to post pictures....

So, those are my first two phases of Project Me. I going to add more after I have established these two in my life because in every good behavior change model you can't start every change you want to make at once if you want it to stick. I know I need to work on my mental and physical health to make myself feel better and stronger at this point in my life. After that, who knows? I might try to continue my language learning and get a Rosetta Stone to practice my Spanish. Any suggestions on other things I should try?

Cold...

That is the best word for the emotions shared between us today.. Today, I am officially moved out of his house...

Today, I tried to play happy and nice and what I got in return was cold and bitterness... I didn't do this to us, he did.... I did everything I possibly could to make the best of an uncomfortable but workable situation, he gave up before he even gave it a chance... The excuse he has been telling everyone on why we are no longer together is that I moved away and we grew apart... That is a lie; it has only been a month. The reason we are no longer together is because he gave up on me and didn't love me the way he said he should after three years... at least that's what I heard from his mouth. I even respected his decision because if that's how he feels then I can't do anything to change that. I've tried.

Today, I felt like a stranger to him. I felt like the last three years were nothing to him. He made me feel like had done something wrong, like I was the one who broke his heart. He has told me so many conflicting things that I don't even know what to believe anymore. First, he tells me he loves me more than I could ever know. Then, he tells me I was the one who ruined our perfect life we were planning. Now, he tells me he has never felt a spark with me and has tried to force himself to for three years because he knows he should feel that way about me... I know I should feel relieved he is no longer my concern but how do you go from loving someone so much to acting like you don't give a shit about them?

Today, he made me feel like nothing better than the dirt on the ground. His goodbye words were thanks for everything... I've given everything I had and everything I was for a fleeting smile, a hug, and thanks for everything.... I really don't know what I expected from today or why I'm so upset now when I have been fine all week. I guess I expected him to be humble and apologetic but he was arrogant and pissy. To make myself feel better, I will believe that is his defense system but in all honesty, TODAY SUCKED! I am just hurt to know I have spent three years with someone who today made me feel like a stranger. I just want this nightmare to end. God, please send me someone who won't take back their "I love you". Twice this has happened to me by someone I spent years trying to please, and I can't do it again.

It is finished...

How does your life go from being exactly the way you want it to falling down around you and all you can do is watch the pieces crumble? I feel like I am in a movie and in the matter of a month my security, my love, my everything is gone... How do things get like this? I am so sad and alone... I have lost my best friend, my boyfriend, my kid... and I can do nothing about it. I can't make someone love me. I have done everything I could to make this work. Why doesn't anyone love me? Why is this happening again? I do everything right, but in the end he doesn't love me the way he should. Maybe I need to not care so much and treat a guy like shit so he will chase me instead of hurt me... I am just so incredibly hurt and I can't do anything about it... I give up...Maybe I'm just not meant to be loved. I give too much of myself and in the end I am left with nothing because there is nothing left; and it always ends.

I have too much time...

I have nothing new going on since yesterday except I am really really bored tonight and miss my family. I am trying to accept the direction God has put my life in and trying to understand the things out of my control right now. I am praying for a solution to my present dilemmas. Its amazing to me how close I was to everything I had dreamed of since I was a little girl and now how far away it seems. I could be over exaggerating this situation but it feels like my dream that was so tangible a month ago now is out of reach. I know I am loved but I am trying to understand how taking a step back can help us move forward. I just want to get married and buy a house and start the newest addition to our family. I actually had started to dream of that being within a year or so but now that I have to work two hours away and come back on the weekends, I have to face the fact that it might possibly be never. The worse part is I trusted completely and now feel betrayed because this wave crashed me down unexpectedly. The only thing I can do now is pray. Pray for wisdom. Pray for patience. Pray for understanding from both sides.

Ecclesiastes 7:8

8 The end of a matter is better than its beginning,
and patience is better than pride.

2 Corinthians 6:4-6

4Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; 5in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; 6in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love;

My Upside Down Life

Goodness what a week it has been and its only Tuesday. I never thought it would be this hard moving and starting a new chapter in my life. I feel like I am in a job that pays really well but I have a hole in my heart where Ryan and Jasmine are absent during the week. I knew it would be hard to be away from them but never thought how upside down it was going to turn my life. I am sad all the time. I am lucky my job is fairly easy because otherwise I would be in trouble. My evenings are spent alone in my room. I started my walks this week and next week I will begin my hard workouts but other than that the only thing that gets me through the day is knowing I will be back where I feel safe on the weekend. I am not supposed to talk about certain topics but all I can say is that its certainly not getting any easier to concentrate on my work being so distant. I feel like half of me is missing. I have suffered the loss of a relationship before but never felt this strange. I have never had to know things are meant to work and have them out of my reach to fix. I can't fix this and its killing me because I know I need this job to pay off my bills but on the other hand I need my family too. I need my support system and they aren't here. I am just sad and want this pain to stop. I am so homesick its ridiculous. Please keep praying for things to get better.

New Job, New Home

Well, I officially live back in St. Louis now. I started my new job on Monday and I can't say if I like it or not yet. Everyone is super helpful but I am doing the boring part of web-based training for the first week and haven't really observed anyone except for yesterday afternoon yet. I keep thinking, "You are making a lot of money to be sitting here on the computer learning all day so get over the boredom!" It is hard to go from a fast-paced environment like the bank to sitting in a room on a computer all day. I know once I get into doing what my job actually entails I will have less time to be bored but until then, boo!

I think another reason I am so frustrated is that I am really homesick and miss my Ryan. I never realized how much I look forward to him getting home and telling me about his crappy day at work and what all he has left to do for the semester and any other little fact he seems to remember for the day. This weekly separation is going to be much harder for me than it is for him because he has a million more things going on and he has Jasmine to look after. I just have myself. As soon as I get paid, I am going to get a membership to the gym so I can start getting myself in better shape so when I do get to see Ryan, I will blow him away! I want him to be amazed when he looks at me:)

Well, here are some pictures I have taken over the past couple of weeks of me and Jasmine and Ryan. I miss them ALOT! I can't wait for Friday to get here!

What a great day!

So nothing major happened today but it was a great day. My morning started off bad because I woke up and only had ten minutes before I had to be at work. I hate mornings like that. My body just didn't want to wake up. I spent four hours at work and then had off the rest of the afternoon:) I came home and ate some Jimmy John's and took a shower. Then, my sis came over and we watched a movie and then went out to dinner. She paid! Yay... I am slightly broke right now and so that made my day:) We had peach margaritas and steak. It was so yummy! Ryan joined us for the drinks after class and then we parted ways. I miss my sister lots and so every moment I get to spend time with her is cherished. Overall, it was a pretty good day.

I am trying to decide how I want to do my room at home when I move back. I was taking it over with Ryan in the car and he thinks that khaki walls will be too drab. He suggested a pale yellow or light blue. I like that idea but I also like the comfy look of khaki walls. I am also thinking of getting an inexpensive comforter that is maybe an olive green or chocolate brown. Any other ideas? I have always liked the look of light blue and chocolate but I also think yellow and brown would be pretty... HELP!

Happy Easter!

I can't believe today is already Easter! This year is flying by so fast! I am currently trying to enjoy the last of my beautiful weekend with Ryan sitting beside me doing homework. We had an amazing day today full of family fun. I woke up this morning to Ryan making homemade crepes with orange and blueberry cream inside.. I am so blessed to have a man who is an amazing cook! Then, we all got ready for church. Jasmine looked so cute in her Easter dress. It was off to church for us after that. Sat through a good sermon and kind of missed my home church a little. After church, we had his family over for a lunch of ham and bean soup and cornbread. I have to say we do know how to throw a party:) We had a great lunch with thought-provoking conversation (always a good thing) and after Ryan dropped Jasmine off at her momma's house we went to Wal-Mart to get out of the house for a bit.

Now, we are back at home relaxing and just enjoying each others' company. I can't believe in just two short weeks, I will be heading home right now to prepare for my first day at my new job! Yes, that's right, I got the job! I am now officially the Clinical Administration Coordinator for OptumHealth, which is a part of United Health Group. I am so excited about this new chapter starting in my life. It is slightly bittersweet but thank the Lord for giving me this amazing opportunity to start a career with a great company and for giving me the financial help I have been praying for! I feel like this is the path I am supposed to be traveling. I am moving back home with my parents for a little while so I can pay off some major debt I have gotten myself into these past few years. I am sad about leaving Cape but our apartment is, like Ryan said, too small for three people and two cats. So, Parker and I will be spending our weekdays in St. Louis and on the weekends I will be making the trip to Cape to visit my other half. I know that this will be a true test of our relationship, but maybe this is needed before we can truely begin our life together as a family. Jasmine will have the toughest time adjusting, I think, because her and I spend the most time together during the week due to Ryan's class schedules. She is my little buddy. This will be good for her to spend more time with her Sherry Grandma though.

I am stealing this little video clip off my cousin in law's blog because I thought it was so amazing. There is nothing sweeter than the song of a gifted child... in this case, a class full of gifted children singing Coldplay.

It's my Birthday!!


I am officially a quarter of a century old... I have mixed feelings about this. I can't believe I am already 25. Just having a mini freak out..... ok its over:)

I did get a pretty neat purse from my mom and dad and a Vera Bradley tote from my sis. Overall, its been a pretty good day so far. I woke up early and had an interview with Medifit which is a corporate fitness facility. I applied at their Monsanto location. I think the interview went pretty well but once again, it's in St. Louis. After the interview, I went to the bank and to see Ryan at work. Then, I went to Target (My FAVORITE store) and got some stuff and got groceries at Wal-Mart. I think I did pretty well with the healthy choices which made me proud of myself:)

After I unloaded all of the groceries(still not all put away..haha), I went to see sis at work. She bought my lunch at Logan's which was delicious. I had ribs, a sweet potato, and a veggie skewer. YUM! She had all of her co-workers come and give me a big "YE-HAW". Kind of embarassing but still fun. Now, I am back at home, showered, laundry started and getting ready to start one of four movies that I rented today:)

Thanks for the birthday wishes from everyone!
