You know the world is right when...

One of your favorite freshmen is in a Whoopi-cushion costume,
Your nephew has expandable batman wings,
And your 5 year old niece is wearing fake eyelashes and says "Twick or Tweat"

God bless kids who can't say their "r's"

All good things must end....

I woke up this morning to complete silence.

There were no little feet walking up creaky stairs,
Or little hands closing cabinet doors, over and over,
Or hearing "Good morning Aunt Mimi" really loud, while some crazy PBS show is playing in the background.

Sometimes silence is good... sometimes its even needed. But this morning it just made me sad.

I had the most wonderful 5 days in Jacksonville, North Carolina. So much, that I didn't want to leave.

Reasons I love me some Jacksonville! 

Blue eyes
Shopping and Liam posing for pictures
Little footprints in the sand
The ocean
Sisters in matching scarfs
Sweet Tea... and I mean real sweet tea.
Front Porches
Coffee and talking 
And I love Jacksonville because it gave the three of us a reason to be together!

"So are you leaving tomorrow"

This is the sweet sweet thing my nephew asked me after only being here for a few hours..... Awesome. 
He loves me, I promise.

Wake up at 3:45 and head to OKC airport.
Arriving at my sisters, Liam took to me to my bed where he had drawn me a picture.
Tara is the best hostess ever and left KC and I welcome signs on sea shells and Victoria Secret lotion. 
Oh and she has a fan by my bed... she knows me so well. 
And I rode on 3 planes all for this!
Eliana Marie
& Liam Everett
& of course my sweet sister Tara! 

The best part of the day, beside my nephew asking me to leave 4 days early, was when he got his fake hamster stuck in KC's hair. And then kept saying "Aunt Kasey just give it back".... We did have to cut some hair. 

Welcome to NC!

And holy hannah, am I ready to go!!!

My alarm will be going off at 3:45 am and I will be getting up to head to North Carolina.

To see this....

And kiss on this...

Oh and 5 days of sister bliss!

Garage Sales....

I really do love a good Garage sale.
It gives you the rush of a bargain and sometime it only cost you 25 cents.

Here are some recent finds:

Shawnee T-shirt..... It has glitter lettering and I love it.

25 cents

Pumpkin... I added the Christmas lights.


Cowboy Belt... Only on certain days will I wear the B-Buckle. You know what days I am talking about.


Books... Its the first items I look for at any garage sale.

25 cents

Go forth and find a good deal!

The gasp heard around Hobby Lobby....

Yes, it could have been from people finding out that I forgot to call my sister on her birthday. AND yes it is  the sister who lives 22 hours away from any family. I feel horrible and I did start to call but got side tracked with a student... Crap, that makes it sound worse. TARA I LOVE YOU!!!!

No, the real gasp was from when I discovered that they put out the Christmas wrapping paper.
I seriously made the loudest sound, that had women's heads turning. The gasp that I let out could have been that of a mother watching her child run out in front of a car, or maybe watching someone knock over your grandmother's antique punch bowl, or hearing that Justin Timberlake is madly in love with you. These are all acceptable reason's to make a huge scene in HL...... But mine was because of a 75 feet roll of paper.
I immediately called my sister and let her know the good news. She was equally as thrilled.

Tara I would have called you too but you don't have a Hobby Lobby and that would just be rude to rub it in your face, especially since I won the worst sister award yesterday.

The only thing better to them putting out the Christmas wrapping paper, is when they put it 50% off!!!
