So even though I did NOT want to, I forced myself out of bed and organized all of my clothes… this literally took me like 4 hours to complete!
There is a few things you guys should know about me right now
1. I hate laundry
Laundry is the most annoying chore in my household mostly because we have a 9 y/o daughter who changes her clothes a million times a day. I have to wash clothes at least once a day to keep up with it and well, I’m lazy and 90% of the time I am not feeling good (thanks to Interstitial Cystitis) and well shit gets piled up.
2. I can sleep my life away
When it comes to sleep I typically need like 18 hours of sleep daily. I have always been this way and I have always needed naps. Like I am not even joking. When I was in school (elementary- High school) as soon as I got home I would eat and then take a 2 hour nap. As an adult things didn’t change but whatever. Lol
3. I love to cook but hate cleaning.
I could spend all hours of my day in the kitchen putting together homemade meals and snacks for my family but when it comes to cleaning it up I’m like nah! I can not be the only one, right?
So with this whole cleaning and organizing for me, I think it stinks but it is much needed in my house. We get so busy/lazy that shit just gets crammed everywhere… literally. So I am taking it day by day, room by room and completely organizing and cleaning my whole house. I think I have about a million bags worth of crap to throw out already and all I did was put away our Christmas decor and organizing our master bedroom closet.
I guess we will see what I get myself into tomorrow in my house cleaning nightmare.
Oh, Hello to my new followers I am so thrilled to see new faces! This blog keeps me going and each and every one of my viewers makes me so happy!!!!
Well guys the NyQuil is kicking in so I better stop typing. Haha

Hey everyone, is it just me or is Christmas sneaking up way too fast! My husband and I bit the bullet yesterday and went Christmas shopping so that leaves me with 24 hours to wrap them all while I have the time!
Tomorrow the kids get out of school early and I have sessions booked all weekend so lets see if I survive! I woke up yesterday feeling horrible and it isn’t over yet, it is just getting started unfortunately.
Anywho, I have always just rushed wrapping gifts and they would come out horrible. This year I wanted my personality to show through my gift wrapping so I went simple, indie/ Boho and adorable!
A few cute name tags, ribbon and simple wrapping paper later this is how they turned out! I don’t know about you but I LOVE it!!!!! Although we didn’t go “all out” like we usually do for our children due to an amazing and much needed vacation, I think they will still be so happy!
The only thing that kind of ruined my wrapping was the scotch tape…. I didn’t get the clear kind ( ugh I know) but all in all I think they are so cute! I can not wait to finish wrapping gifts and for it to be Christmas!
New Photography will be up in a few days and I am so excited to have so many bookings. I feel like this is the best place I have been in my life and I am not afraid to be who I am and let my personality shine through everything I do.
Comments are more than welcome and please give this a like if you enjoyed it! I am cleaning then back to bed for this sick momma! If you haven’t already, be sure to follow my Instagram and be sure to send me a message and tell me you are from WordPress so we can connect and get to know one another.
As always, thanks for reading and I hope you follow my blog.
As you guys have gathered, we just had a week vacation in New Mexico and it was amazing! I feel so amazing as a parent being able to make such timeless memories with my family! Everything about Red River, New Mexico is beautiful! I have never seen such a fascinating and enchanting place in my life!
I mean, it does not get anymore beautiful than this right? I wish that we could sell our house and pack up and leave like yesterday! Lol
The towns are little villages where everyone is so sweet and friendly and there is no stop lights! We couldn’t believe it! Everyone stops for the Mule Deere that walk freely among the town. You can stop and feed the deer and ducks with no fear and everyone just smiles and waves! Ugh, I would love to go back every year because I just felt so at home there.
We made some beautiful memories that’s for sure and it we were even blessed with snow while we were skiing! Talk about enchanting, our children have never been so happy ever!
I could have never show my husband and In Laws how thankful I am for working so hard for us to able to go one such an amazing vacation!
It meant the world to be able to try something new, travel and spend some much needed time with the ones I love the most. I will be back tomorrow with more photos and details on our amazing trip! I hope enjoyed this post and I hope to see more followers!
Thank you all so much for the uopouring support, I love you all, so much. Also, be sure to follow me on Instagram xxkaseygruenewaldxx

I am freaking out that it is so close to Christmas and we have not purchased any gifts yet! Yes I know, what in the world? December is going by so fast and I will be stress eating until our shopping is done!
This year I want to change up our gift giving and make things more…. realistic! I think children have gotten so spoiled without knowing the value of the money they are expecting us to spend! I mean, if you are financially in the position to do so, heck yeah! But I think it is time to bring my children back to reality and for them to realize that they have an amazing life!
As a child, yes the presents were lame when we were ALWAYS thankful for what we got. We didn’t grow up having everything we wanted and that is okay! It is time that I bring my children back down to earth and help show them that they have a great life and they do not NEED the lavish and expensive gifts on their list….
Help a momma out on thoughtful gift giving ideas other than Pinterest! I am wanting to give them gifts that they will cherish rather than lose interest in them. I am asking for suggestions and ideas to BLOW up my comment section!!!!
Please, I really do love being creative and I am up to any suggestions and ideas. So let’s get the fun started!
Feel free to hit that follow button and follow me on Instagram too! Let’s get to know each other!
I’ll be back soon!

Hey everyone! This is our last day here in New Mexico and I am just so sad to have to go back home. We have a camp and travel trailer at the Red River RV Park and there are so many beautiful ducks that come along for a visit a few times a day. Right behind our trailer is a little stream with clear water (melted snow) running past the sound of the water is so soothing to my soul.
The ride from Brady, Texas to New Mexico was rough ride with two children. We made it to Red River, New Mexico in two days. We had a late start leaving Texas Central Texas at about 8:00 pm with a pit stop for sleep in Amarillo and then back on the road straight here.
The scenery was sooo beautiful, I feel like I am home. I would love nothing more than to live in such a beautiful and simple place. The towns are more like Villages and are so original and stunning!
After regaining our strength overnight we hit the Ski and summer area and let me tell you, we have had so much fun!
I will have a new blog coming very soon as for right now am not near very good wifi (in the mountains) but it will be up early next week! I can NOT wait to share the photos I have taken while I have been here and I am greatful to have been able to come on this vacation!
Follow me on Instagram!
Talk to you guys real soon and feel free to share your vacation stories with me, I would to get to know my followers. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hey guys! I leave in 4 days to Red River, New Mexico and I am so lost on what to pack!!!! I have never been in the snow nor the mountains so I am asking for any tips from my followers and viewers!!!
I am from central Texas so we see snow maybe once every 3 years…. and most of the time the whole town is just frozen in a layer of ice and we all know that is NO fun! I know that I have followers from all over the globe so please help me because this southern girl has no idea what to expect!
My amazing husband and in-laws have been getting snow gear but other than snow gear I have no idea what to take. I am tiny (4’9 100lbs) and I am always cold…. the last thing that I want is to be a party pooper so any and I mean ANY tips is very much needed!
Okay when I say I will be freezing cold I am not exaggerating but I would also like to be cute and stylish because I will be sharing my OOTD with you all including all the details. So, if you have not hit that follow button do that now!
Leave some comments below!!! Let’s chat and get to know one another! I will be back real soon! Love you guys!
