I had all these grand plans this morning.

Then i got sick…..i didn’t even make it out for girls night last night…..

but right now i’m knocked up on sudafed….so i at least can breath.

I won’t even go into how hard it is to blow my nose….actually…i am getting the hang of it.

Fin had his smitten kitten over for little cup of tea this morning.

Is it wrong for a FIVE year old to crush on a ONE year old.

Don’t worry though….i won’t if you won’t.

If you’ve been a loyal reader for the last year and a half…then you might recognize Wren.

Her mother and i are really good friends.

Wren’s mom is….or i mean was…..the kindergarten teacher at our school.

She was SUPPOSED to be Fin’s teacher this year…till she up and was moved to the first grade class.

oh well.

Fin will live……hopefully.


we already have these two kittens lives all planned out.

They have to wait till they both hit the age of 21 to even think about getting married.

I know Fin might be in a rock band….and Wren might be the drama queen…..

and they might….might be able to date when they hit sixteen.


…that was till Fin reached across the table to steal a smooch.


All bets are off now.

I will NOT tolerate that sort of behavior.

I don’t care if she was batting her eyelashes at him from across the table.

Look  at him….he is like a shark….going in for the kill.


It’s not his fault….it’s not i tell you!

Okay…deep breath…one…two…three.

I need another sudafed…i’ll be right back.

Alrighty now….i’m back to our regularly scheduled program.

My plans for this weekend are to unpack the suitcases. I guess for some reason…i think that

if i don’t unpack them…then i really am not back at home.

But i am. …..home that is.

Today marks one week home

Coming home from a vacation like that has it’s downfalls….like getting the credit card bill in the mail.


So much laundry…that i sometimes have to ask myself…do i really have three kids and not eight of them?

and speaking of laundry….yes…i have on a jean skirt.

shoot me if you must.

I realize i will not be invited to any runway shows if i get caught wearing one…

but today i did.

It’s from last year….and i felt the need to wear it once more before i donate it.


i will.

i promise.

Okay…maybe i’ll wear it one more time.

Oh…you are asking about the shoes?

yes…i happened to walk into that shoe store called Payless today.

I don’t know why…actually….it was right next to the movie i walked in..

and i found these two pairs of flats.

and i fell SMITTEN for them.

I also will be getting a huge high five from bryan tonight

for only spending a total of $11.50 for both pairs.

Of course…they are not brand name and they are flats…..

but they go well with my short shorts.

Did i forget to tell you that i lost ALL EIGHT POUNDS?

 Totally kidding by the way.

I did lose ONE…if that counts.

I have to thank my raging head cold for that one.

 p.s. the super cute clip in Wren’s hair is from this cute Etsy shop: Wren handmade


  1. Hope you start feeling better soon and CUTE shoes!!!

  2. I think that is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen!!! Feel better!

  3. I love your shoes. The lovebirds pictures are adorable. I have a great picture of my son when he was 4 giving flowers to his friend after her ballet recital. I plan to embarrass him with that pic one day.

  27. Oh Kasey…

    1. Fin + Wren are quite possibly the cutest things I’ve seen this weekend.
    2. Those flats? Are running a close second.


  28. Oh my gosh, I am running to Payless NOW!!! Well, maybe not right now since the kids are expecting dinner but soon. LOVE those yellow and white flats!

    I can not believe how big little Wren has gotten. Wow, time flies! She is such a doll. My firstborn has been betrothed since Kindergarten, let’s hope it sticks;)

  29. Oh my!!! They are the cutest!!!! It’s a perfect match! Your flats are stinken cute too…. cure any head cold 🙂

    Jean skirts are still in – look at Urban Outfitters.

  32. that might be the cutest crush i’ve ever seen. and that pic of their affection! i mean come on, talk about the perfect snapshot for their save-the-date card. it’s friggen destiny!

    anyway, i spied those payless shoes a while back. very cute. i bought the bow ones in beige and did a mary poppins kick (in my head) on the way out as i was very pleased with my purchase. then the first day i wore them shopping they gave me horrible blisters. now, i’m not saying this will be your story, but rather wanted to warn you to bring an extra pair of shoes just in case you end up wearing them to something fanciful where you’d look peculiar barefoot and/or limping.


  33. those are some super sweet and cute photos!!!! love them and your darling shoes:) Hope you are feeling better!

  34. Oh my I too am smitten for the lovely yellow shoes. In fact as soon as I saw them I jumped off my laptop and ran out and bought a pair. I am wearing them today and I feel like I am walking on sunshine!
