CaseyLand: you should know

you should know

1. When I confiscate love notes from my fourth graders, I make sure they are made known publicly. Take this one for example, that I posted to my twitter - "Do you still love me (name) because I don't like you and you keep looking at me."

2. No one understands me like my sisters and my mom do.

3. Although Alex takes a close second.

4. I often dream of totally trolling this one page on Facebook, but I can't bring myself to do it because I don't want my name associated with it in any way. I have considered creating a fake account. Then I remember I am a 24 year old woman with a job and a husband and I'm wayyyy too mature for that. (but do I have to be?)

5. I have thought about making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies literally EVERY day for the past week. I have yet to make them. I don't know what is holding me back, but I am interested to see when the perfect time will arrive.

6. I had a lot more to say before I started writing this post.

7. I go to sleep and wake up with Taylor Swift songs stuck in my head. They are usually different. I wonder if my brain plays her whole album on repeat while I sleep? If so, this is highly disturbing. I can only hear the line about james dean and red lipstick so many times before I lose my mind.

8. I've gotten to the point with this blog where it's kind of like "whatever" for me. I like blogging, and I like the people I've met through it, but I don't have big plans for it. Like, when I first started this blog, it was totally just for fun and I'd write these random vague awesome emotional posts - and I mean awesome. I was in my prime back then in 2011. I loved writing. Then I started seeing that people were "popular" in the blogging world and my perspective kind of changed. And then I met the man of my dreams and had less emotional blogging to do. And that brings us to today. I mean, I'm not going to turn down a free skirt here or there, but I don't really plan on becoming the next Taza if you know what I mean. I want to get back to my roots and have that love of writing again.

9. In two weeks it's Thanksgiving break. And then my sister Abi comes home. And then I go on a girls weekend to a hotel and spa. And two weeks later it's Christmas. Here come the happy tears...

10. I am notorious for leaving tupperware in the school refrigerator. I have one there now. It has one slice of a quesadilla from Cafe Rio in it. My record number of tupperwares in the fridge is recorded in the picture below. Have a fabulous Monday night/Tuesday morning/next week/whenever you read this post.
