I'm Breaking ALL The Rules Today..

Okay. Well maybe not all of them. But most of them. I just spent 30 minutes ironing a sheet + chasing the natural light around my living room to get you guys the perfect pictures for this wine cork thing I'm making [ps it's gonna be great!] Then I remembered I forgot to schedule today's post, again. [guys, I don't have it together.] So, the sweetest little llama there ever was, Melissa, nominated me for another Liebster award. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to win more than once, Natalie also nominated me, so this would be my third [I have never felt more popular guys..] Anyways. I'm just going to use it as a prompt for today, which is probably not part of the rules. I nominate everyone who hasn't done it yet. I know that's cheating. Hashtag sorry not sorry. 
this picture has nothing to do with anything.
I'm also skipping 11 random facts about myself, because you can find some here, here, here, and anywhere in this tag. geeze I talk about myself a lot. OKAY. On to the questions! 

Do you like Christmas music? I love Christmas music. I've been known to listen to it in July. I love it almost as much as Laura

Do you like to cook? I do! I also like to make up recipes as I go, because I'm bad at following directions, apparently. 
Do you watch Gilmore Girls? is the Pope Catholic? I'm really just Lorelai with a better relationship with her mother. 

What is your favorite hobby? it appears to be finding the perfect gifs for my posts these days. I also love to take pictures, go to sporting games, play softball, and go on nature hikes!
What are three goals you have in the next 10 years?
  • travel: I'm going to Europe on NYE!!
  • pay off all my credit card debt: working for peanuts kinda racks up the credit card bills..
  • buy a jeep wrangler: after I pay off my debt. or if Jeep wants to give me one. OR if someone wants to trade my car for their wrangler, I'm thinking someone who just had kids, the Liberty is great for moms!
Do you watch reality T.V.? no, but my roommate does, so we have a lot on our DVR...
How do you feel about your current job?  I love my dad, I love being able to pay my bills, but it's not for me. I want to get back in sports, but I'm also considering going back to school and finding a different kind of nonprofit to work for..
What is your most embarrassing moment? I don't embarrass easily. I don't even know if I could pick one, I do a lot of dumb stuff..
Any hidden talents? THIS I have plenty. I'm a really fast pee-er. Super efficient at Facebook stalking, I can figure out the end of crime drama shows before the second commercial break, I am really good at that "what song is this, who sings it?" game, I know tons of useless things because I love trivia and crossword puzzles (I do them in pen + everything!)
How do you  feel about flying? I need at least one cocktail, it's a long story. 
What did you want to be when you were little? A marine biologist who was also a professional softball player and President of the USA. I was super ambitious...

What made you start blogging? A lot of free time and a lot of people saying "why don't you start a blog? people would totally read it"
Do you have any nicknames? Kasey is actually a nickname! also Deuce, KD Smoove, KK, and I'll answer to "HEY YOU!" oh also, mouth of the south, due to my lack of volume control...
What's one thing you'd have to have with you if you were deserted on an island? I don't know if I can pick one. I'm going to cheat, books, sunscreen, tequila. Then I'd be set. 
What is your guilty pleasure? The SyFy channel... also I really used to like the Disney channel, the newer stuff kinda sucks though. 
What is your favorite movie quote? "good luck exploring the infinite abyss" 

What is your go-to accessory staple? I always have at least two ponytail holders on my arm? Also, my cowboy boots. OH OR my love beads. 
What is the best thing you've ever cooked? my favorite dish is my kickin' buffalo chicken dip
If you were one of the four seasons- which would you be and why? SUMMER. I don't like pants, I like the sun to stay up late, and I am like a furnace.
Where you born in the state (or country) you're currently living in? If not - what brought you there? I sure was! 
What do you do for a living? right now, I manage my dad's office. He trusts me with all kinds of numbers. silly silly. 
What do you think MSDS stands for? miscellaneous spontaneous dance situations. obviously. 

I'm back to using the hot glue gun! Who else wants to answer these questions? I can make up some more if you want :) 


  1. What a fun post! My favorite hobbie is being creative and doing art. I'm obsessed. You take lovely photos. Keep up the good work. I like your talent of super efficient at FB stalking. lol


  2. Do the people who told you "people would totally read it" read your blog? Because in my experience, most people I know IRL do not read my blog. Especially if I ask them to.

  3. I mean, I can find people on facebook with just a first name and guess as to where they went to school! thank you thank you thank you!!

  4. you know, some of them definitely do, but I think a lot of them lie about reading it? I definitely have more strangers who like my blogs facebook page than my actual friends + people I know though..

  5. I haven't done my post yet, but yours is awesome!! I'm interested in the work you do for your dad? new to the blog, woo!

  6. Fun fact, I just finished watching "ELF" so I loved that you featured it in this post.

  7. So true. My mom and a couple of my friends IRL read but they weren't actually the people I would've picked as readers before I started blogging. Thankfully, I've acquired some wonderful readers (read blog-friends) on the way.

  8. I like to think FB stalking is actually part of my job. Because it is. Also if I was on a desserted island I'd bring a fully stocked, auto-flying plane so I could get off said island. Just saying.

  9. I'm laughing SO HARD at this entire post. I love that you grabbed Mary-Keith's questions AND mine. such a rule breaker! ;) "miscellaneous spontaneous dance situations. obviously. " OBVIOUSLY. I hate to break your heart and tell you what it really means so we'll leave it as this. it has a new meaning now.

  10. very few of my IRL friends read my blog. and if they do, they don't tell me.

  11. I am so excited it is almost full-blow Christmas season! Buddy the Elf, what's your favorite color?

    xx Kelly
    Sparkles and Shoes

  12. he owns a company that resets moulding bays in big box stores [Lowe's + Home Depot] I do all of the scheduling, payroll, etc! It's funny, because I'm really super bad at numbers.

    I can't wait to see your post!!

  13. I LOVE IT! I want to watch it like. right now.

  14. you're no fun. I wouldn't mind being stranded on an island for a little while.

  15. OBVIOUSLY! I almost googled it, but I decided I liked my answer best. Like when I make up my own song lyrics.

  16. YES! Sometimes I answer the phone like that... I'm so ready.
