January 2nd, Putting Positiviety into My Marriage. 

1-2-2018 


I can’t even lie about crying last night due to all the cloudy negativity and insecurities in my mind. Sometimes I feel like I am failing as a person, mom and wife and I probably do but this year I want to try harder. I want to spend time doing positive things and being a lot more adventurous. I spent way too much time in 2017 in self pity and hating everyone and everything. I was angry for things that had nothing to do with anyone but me. So now after doing some soul searching and working on myself from the inside out I feel I am strong enough to put myself into a positive state of mind. 


We (My Husband and I) have both worked our asses off to get to where we are today and I feel now more than ever, it is time to enjoy our lives together. 

I have been a mess of a woman and I have never been comfortable with being me so how could I expect to let others in right? 

My sister gave me “Fight less, Love more” by Laurie Puhn, JD maybe four years ago and this poor book has done nothing but collecting dust. 

So I have decided I will be spending my free time reading this wonderful  book and picking up new hobbies that will help me keep up the positivity. Wish me luck, and I hope your 2018 is off to a Great start! The sky is the limit babes, you can do anything that you put your mind to.

January 1st РStarting a new  journey. 

Monday-1/01/2018 #storyofmylife

I would have to say one of the biggest obstacles I have struggled with has always been my eating problems and stress/anxiety disorder. I used to not care about myself or even thought that I was worth anything because I didn’t see it. I used to be in a vey dark and scary place but I am so happy to say that this New Year has began as Kasey being the Healthiest and happiest EVER! I reached a goal that has always been impossible. I could never maintain my weight (ever) and I had a hard time keeping my weight above 85lb. I am so  thankful to say that the first day of a New Year begins with my highest weight ever and I am no longer struggling! 


I see myself where I am today and all the hell I went through to be where I am today and I can smile. I know that every struggle and all of those mountains I had to climb was to reach the top and to keep going! I have grown as a Wife, Mother, and basic human being. I have a Husband who loves me, children who adore me and inner strength I never knew I had. 


Early 2017. 


Ending 2017. 

Sometime I find it crazy that the one thing that made me realize my strength is the one thing I thought would drag me down. After my diagnosis with Interstitial Cystitis it was like something clicked in my head and I realized that even though I have this life altering chronic syndrome, I am alive and ready to live. 

I will take this year, the last year of my 20s and I will be so much more than I ever believed I could. I know the whole “New Year, New Me” is a clique but really my goal this year is to “Heal” from the inside out. I will no longer run from my fears but rather take them head on. I will begin working on my Health and fitness like I never have and I am stoked to bring you all along on my journey! Follow my  Instagram for a full look into my life.  I can only imagine where I will be in a single year but wherever I go, I am taking you all with me. I will open up and share the good and the bad. I will share my whole experience of 2018 with all of my viewers and I hope you all will stick along for the ride. Cheers to New Years, let’s make the best of 2018!

New Years is coming! Recap of my 2017 & my 2018 Goals revealed. 

Follow me

Hello everyone and how excited are we to be at the brink of a new year!!!! I know I have some pretty good and realistic goals for 2018. I will take my goals step by step bug I am more than excited to push myself and reach every goal! 

A quick recap of my 2017 

I took time off of working (cashiering) to focus on myself, my health and my little family and it was the best decision I could have made. Due to endless doctor visits, ER stays and misdiagnosis I finally got my answer, I have a bladder syndrome called Interstitial Cystitis. Since then  I have been able to rest on my worst days, cook dinner, and spent time with everyone that I love the most. I will always be forever thankful for my husband for helping me get to where I am today. 


I decided to begin blogging and it quickly led me to a passion and dream I didn’t even know I had! Now, I am officially a new Photographer and I am so blessed to see everyone who likes my photos and is cheering me on! Everything fell into place so quickly and I am just so excited to keep going forward. 


I went on a beautiful Family Vacation to Red River, New Mexico where we learned how to ski and spend our first day in a real “snowy day” magical wonderland! View my previous posts to view my take on our Vacation. 


I found who I am as a individual and I am learning to love myself. I spent my whole life in a horrible place mentally and I am so happy that I made the choices that I did to get me to where I am today. I am currently at the healthiest place I have ever been and I am so thrilled to be at the highest weight (nonprengnancy) and I have a clear, cheerful mind! 

  1. Focus on my Physical and mental health and achieve goals that used to be impossible.
  2. Hobbies- crafting, creative things, drawing etc. 
  3. Be myself 100% and not care what others think 
  4. Read read read 
  5. Practice with makeup 3 times a week 
  6. Up my Instagram content. 
  7. Let go of the past and all the painful memories 
  8. Love more. 
  9. Be a better wife/ mother. 
  10. Let go of negative people and hold on to those who support me. 

I am so excited for  a New Year and all of the possibilities that we have in front of us all. I hope everyone is looking forward to goals no matter how big or small! I would love to chat with you all and hear what you have as goals as well! I will be back very soon! 

New Photography, vlogs and blogs coming very soon. I can not wait to show you all what I have planned for 2018! Cheers

Our first Time in the Snow! 


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

My magical Woods Vacation! 

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!

Help! I am Packing for Vacation and I have no clue what I am doing! 

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!
