beach boy

Sorry girls….i had to show you my baby boy…beach style.

What i didn’t tell you is that we are here to film a movie….


not me….no one asked me to be in a movie….nope…

they wanted my little man…Fin.

Fin is going to be the new Terminator.


he might be the new Rocky..


he might be in the new movie…

shark boy who hates his mom taking his photo.

I’m still pitching ideas to the movie company…so stay tuned.

Fin was tired of me taking photos of him…and i happened to catch the best one ….of him

running up to me while i sat in my binkini clad body…taking endless photos of my baby boy.

Can you see Lola in the background yelling….’run..forrest….run….’.


okay…so you girls have been so patiently waiting for the winner of princeville.

Bree…email me with your info…you have a Target card coming.

If you didn’t win…i have better news for you.

While i sit on the beach watching surfer boys…..errrr….i mean…myΒ  husband…

but in the background i am watching good looking surfer boys…

but still keeping an eye on my children…

  1. Helloo!

    I’m doing the happy dance! hoping to go to Anthro!!

  2. Hi!
    I read all about you and your belly fat and toe fungus over at Sarah’s. There are cures for that, you know. I believe salt water and sand do the trick.
    Please enter me, I love a good trip to anthro…

  3. Aloha! What a fun interview. Love the photos of your home and shoes. πŸ˜‰

  4. Ohhh Me ME ME! I want!!!!

    …and here I’ve been using hair clips to make it look like I had less hair…wow, I had this all wrong the whole time.

  52. Mahalo nui loa,
    I loved your interview with Sarah and thought that you both could have met in Hawaii. Maybe next time. I am so glad you are enjoying Maui, it is a beautiful place.

    I figured we could tell if you had foot fungus if you were wearing flip flops or “slippas” as the locals say. Can’t hide that when on the beach.

    Movie being filmed = “Magnum PI” !

    Thank you for the extra giveaway, and sharing the beautiful sunshine!!!! Aloha, Teresa

    Your interview with Sarah was hilarious! You are definitely a co-mommy I could hang with!
    You have lived in two of my favorite cities in the world. My husband and I are both teachers, so each summer we try to get to Chicago to stay a couple of days at the Drake, roam around, and eat like crazy. That is pure extravagance for us!
    Thank you for the giveaway opportunity, and thank you for lighting a fire to go visit the TJ Maxx stores in the Minneapolis area. If there are any shoes like the ones you are sporting, I am in!

  64. Today was a good day. Its always a good day when I see a new post up at Lola B’s. But not only did I get to read your post but I got to read your interview at Beach Cottage…..and be entered for an Anthro card. If thats not enough to make a gals day….I learned that you are from the Chicago area….a measly 2 hours from me!

  87. Jody in Florida says:

    Hi Kasey,
    i found your great blog through Sara’s interview with you. Then i read all your travel stories in Paris. I was in hysteria laughing. I do not know why but the epidural thing(a week before labor) got me falling out of my chair. You have a great sense of humor and take truly beautiful photos. A special combination and I am so glad you share your talents! I am going to be a follower of you forever!
    Thank you so much, have a wonderful time in Hawaii, and if you decide to not keep that Anthro certificate for yourself,(why not?!) sign me up too! Many Blessings, jody

  88. I have an Anthro addiction too. You know it’s bad when they come up to you and ask you if you need a room started and they already know your name! I do a lot of driving for work and have 4 Anthro stores within 35 miles of my house.

    It’s pretty awesome.

  89. Do you acknowledge that this is high time to get the mortgage loans, which can help you.

  90. Rachel D says:

    Loved your interview! Hope you are having a great vacation.

  91. I’ve been following Sarah awhile now and am excited to start reading your blog now too! And what an amazing way to start too with a phenomenal giveaway and some of the cutest pictures ever!

  92. I LOVE the name Fin! So cool!! Hope I get the gift card. We are trying to furnish our new home, and it would really come in handy. Thanks!

  93. Mary Ann says:

    I have a nephew named Huck….Fin reminds me very much of him…white hair, impish grin et. al.

    Now, may I please have the Antrho gift card? πŸ™‚


  94. Rachelle says:
