it’s still me

 First of all…thank you all for your prayers and thoughts for my neighbor girl….

it really means a lot….and yesterday i put out a call for help on facebook to my friends..

and within an hour…..bags of groceries started lining up in my living room.

I had a nice long talk with the mom last night…and together with my neighbor…

we are pulling together some resources so that she can get some much needed help.


i woke up this morning and decided it was time for a {me} change.

I might look different….but its still me in here.


i decided to get some bangs.

i realize my hair looks darker as well….

that was done last week…

and no…i didn’t do it myself.

I went in and told my girl that i want to go really dark.

Then she said….do you want to go Courtney Cox dark?….and i said…no…not that dark.

But i think it’s still pretty dark.

I even got up this morning and put a pork tenderloin in the crock pot.



yes i did.

Try not to fall off your chair……but i really am cooking dinner tonight.

I think it’ll soften the blow for when bryan comes home and asks where Kasey is.

I’m here…..different….but still the same.

Between the craziness of yesterday…..the preparing of a big ole party on Sunday….

and getting up this morning early so that i could get Mason to his music lesson by 730…

i am needing some quiet…me time.

Bryan called me yesterday from the office and told me he was heading to florida

for the weekend to meet his dad at a football game.

I said…..

okay…who is she and what’s her name.

He didn’t laugh.

Apparently he really is going to a game….because i begged him to take the kids…

all of them…..

 i guess bryan thinks i might get bored or something….

but mason won …

so mason gets to go with his dad…and his grand dad to a football game in Florida.

I guess i’ll hold down the fort here.

I  might even take my kids to a pumpkin patch….

i mean…..

everyone has pumpkins out and my kids are feeling a bit neglected.

My poor neglected children…..

they won’t know what to think of their banged up mom when they get home today.

Alrighty…..i better go check and make sure the crock pot is plugged in….

because last time….


there was no dinner ready at  7.



  1. The bangs look great…I had mine cut the same way last month and love them…they make a girl look younger you know.

  2. i’m with you and rebecca and banged myself a couple of weeks ago.
    feels great!

  3. First, I am so glad that things are coming together for your neighbor. They are in my thoughts and prayers.

  41. Jill told me about your bangs
    when you called today and I
    had to pop over and have a
    peek…..I think they are very
    cute and that you will most
    likely be carded the next time
    you hit the wine store for sangria

  42. Your darling hair! I…love it. You took 21!

  43. Gotta say I love them. It would never work for me though. I can’t stand hair anywhere near my eyes. Drives me crazy. That being said it’s tempting…so hip and fresh and young. You go girl!

  44. OMG love bangs on you!!
