Letter To Me

I think this is something everyone should do. Once a year, I try to write to my future self. I want to lay out expectations, hopes, dreams, and so on. In a few years when I look back on it, I can see the differences.


Hey Kylee, 
Once we get past the initial awkward portion of the letter where I feel like a crazy person, we can begin. K, now that that's over! 

This year has been pretty crazy for you. You graduated from college, started a job -- then started an even better one after that. You and Jacob bought a house, and then found yourself pregnant. Haha, surprise!! 

As usual, you are trying to be better. You really your job and you also want to be a SAHM, so there's conflicting viewpoints there. You want to update and change the house. Really, you just want to feel comfortable and "finished" with the house. That's not going to happen until you settle on a style that you like! You're so indecisive. 

Your marriage is doing really well today. Of course there are rough patches for you both, like the whole tag ticket debacle that happened today. (Remind Jacob of that... he'll probably wish you would just forget about it). But you two are in love and going stronger than ever. 

He's so excited about becoming a dad. I know deep down that it's what is meant for you both. The baby is growing very well. I am about 19 weeks pregnant now. We don't know the sex yet. 

At the moment, I'm so worried about being a good mom. It's already hard for me because I love this baby so so much that I'm worried about doing a good job. I already don't want to leave the baby with someone else. I already just want to hold that sweet little thing in my arms and never ever let go. Something inside of me knows that I will love this baby more than anything I've ever loved. 

This year your dad was diagnosed with Cancer. That was rough. For the whole family. It was hard to see the strongest man you know become weaker. Please go give your future dad a kiss from the past kylee for me. I can say that you have seen the power of true prayer and pure determination. Our God is truly amazing. 

I guess I expect that by this time next year, you'll be listening to Christmas music watching your son or daughter crawl around and your hubs chase them around. You'll be wondering where the time went. I'm pretty sure that here in the past, you just felt the baby move. Apparently, it likes (or dislikes for all I know) Michael Buble's Christmas music. 

I hope that you have done a few things with your life. I hope that you are okay with the daycare you chose, and you and Jacob have jobs that you love. I hope that you aren't stressed. I hope that you are pouring yourself into your marriage and into your child. I hope you remember how happy you are right now (very). 

I really hope that everyone is doing well, and life has delighted you in this year(s).

Happy Thanksgiving

I hope you have a happy thanksgiving. Enjoy your families and be truly thankful for how blessed we all really are.

Wedding Anniversary: Advice From a 3-year Wife

Today is our anniversary. November 20, 2009. We were married when I was young. Like 19 young. So yes, do the math. You will conclude that I am a 22 year old wife, with a baby on the way. Pass your judgements quickly and get over some of the shock. Despite what my generation has led you to believe we are not all idiots. Yes, I was young and I did have to grow up during our marriage, but let me tell you -- I wouldn't have it any other way. I see it as we got a headstart on our life.

I will share what little wisdom I have learned in 3 years of marriage. I could be wrong with what I say, you could choose to let my age or my inexperience with life affect how you take what the rest of this post is about, but I will tell you that you could be making a mistake. I think we are called to share this sort of wisdom with each other so we can grow -- and grow closer to our spouse in return.  Here are my tidbits.

1) God First, Spouse Second. 
This is biblical. We have found that whenever we have our priorities straight, marriage seems easy and fun. When we put something ahead of God in the priority list, such as money or work, we tend to lose sight of what we are going for in this life and that's to serve God and then serve each other. 

2) Submit to your husband. 
I think this is where some will go "Whoa! Whoa! We are equals!". Yea, that's true in society, men and women are equals. And I'm not saying that men or husbands are better than women, I'm saying we as wives should allow our husbands to lead the household. I don't think this is a free pass for men to sit on the couch while we fix dinner and raise the children, I'm saying that in our culture we are taught to take control. In our society, women are considered weak if they don't control a situation, lay down the law with their men, or be the final word in all decisions. It's wrong. Our culture has taught us that husbands are the dumb guys that order the wrong cell phone package or get the wrong cheese. They couldn't possibly be trusted with getting the right cheese! Submit to your husband. Trust that every idea and leadership decision he makes is in the best interest of your family and you will see that when you allow your man to lead, he does just that. He leads. 

3) Talk About Your Expectations You Have For Him
We all have this image of the "ideal husband" in our heads. It's been crammed in there from when we were little girls. (My man will rub my feet every night and then gives me roses for everything). We all have these expectations. Ask your husband, I'm sure he has a few of his own. What I've learned from marriage is that if you never talk about your expectations with your spouse and just expect him to "understand your needs", you're going to be let down. Not that it's by any fault of your husband, it's because he literally doesn't know what you want from him. Talk. About. It. 

4) You should "come onto" Him Too
Wait a sec, did I just talk about sexy time? Oh, yes I did. It's scandalous, I know. But really, we women have been making men look bad for a long time with this. We just don't have the sex drive like men do. WRONG. We just don't have the same type of sex drive men do. Ours is definitely not a switch to be turned on and off in a moments notice, but it does go to the "on" mode. My advice is make the first move and see what happens. Stop making your man beg for it all the time and surprise him by "coming onto" him first. WOWZA! 

Well, that's all I have for you. I hope you enjoy. And I would love to hear what advice you have for me! I'm a really good listener, I swear.

Coffee Date

Today, I'm linking up with Casey over at The Wiegand's. This is my first time on linking up with this post of hers so I don't know if you're supposed to write a different type of post or like what she has, so I'm going with like what she has. 

Coffee Date...

If you came to my house right now for a coffee date I would invite you in and you would instantly be greeted by my two dogs, Optimus and Janie. 

I would tell you that we have been working on their greeting methods lately, but they still get VERY excited while meeting new people. 

I would ask if you wanted coffee, hot chocolate, tea, or caffeine free pepsi. I would drink water. I have been trying to eat and drink healthier lately because of the baby. 

I would ask you how things are going with you. How is your walk with Jesus going? 

I would tell you that Jacob and I have seen so little of each other that we've been having mini bible study sessions through notes. He's always so sweet in the note and then he gives us a passage and talks about it. 

I would tell you that the baby is growing and how weird I've felt lately. I was so sick for a while and now that the sickness has passed, I almost don't feel pregnant. 

I would tell you that I have been thinking about the moment that I get to meet my child for the first time brings me to tears every time I think about it. 

I would ask you if you were comfortable. Our house is old and it tends to get really warm and really cold. Need a blanket? 

I would tell you that I'm going to start decorating for Christmas on Saturday. When are you decorating? Have you gotten all of your shopping done? 

I haven't finished my shopping. And as per usual money is a little tight around here this year, and I want to bless everyone with an amazing gift. I will most likely save money by making a few creative gifts. 

I would tell you my fears. I don't know how good of a mother I will be. I don't know what we're doing about daycare. We can barely take care of ourselves, how are we supposed to take care of a baby? 

I would finish with a prayer for faith. What can I pray for you about? 

I enjoyed our time. See you soon.

Life In Cell Phone Pics

This week has been such an awakening for me. With a very inspiring blogger meetup and new-found energy to boot, I'm feeling great and ready to conquer the world! Can we say "second trimester attitude". 

Jake sent me this picture with the caption, "I'm too sexy to be out in public" or something to that extent. He's right, he's just too sexy to be on the streets. ;)

This is a VERY quickly made business card I did for the #OKBlogger Meet up on Friday. I made about 25 of them for about a $1.50. Not bad, eh?

I look tired and rough, but I had so much fun. I'm sure you recognize these two Allison from Feeding My Temple and Melissa from Pineapple Lily.
Jake was off on Saturday so we got to hang out. I have long weeks when he works night shifts. I was just too happy to see my baby daddy. 
On Saturday evening we visited Jake's folk's house. I saw this picture of the hubs as a brand new baby. He was only around 5 lbs! 
Seeing Jake's baby pic made me want to see mine and his side-by-side. So I dug this out today. Let's just say I was NOT a 5 lb. baby. lol, I was chubby. I'm thinking that our baby might have a little hair, who knows though. 

Well, that's the gist of my week. How was yours? Did you do anything fun? 

Be on the lookout for a few changes around my blog. I'm thinking about bringing back swap sponsoring! And of course, I think I need a new "look". :)

Talk to you soon.

When Nothing Is Happening, Is Something Brewing?

Sometimes nothing is really going on in life. I mean yea, I have a baby growing at an alarming rate inside of me... but really no major events have taken place. 

This makes me wonder, if something is "coming". 

Do you ever feel that way? Like, wait a second... there should be something happening. Suspicious. 

This leads me to believe that something big is fixing to happen. Or is it? I mean, we have been going through major life changes pretty much since we got married (btw our anniversary is coming up). Where's the other shoe? 

All I can say is pleeeeeeaaaase don't let it be something horrible. lol. I don't know if this is a pregnancy thing or not, but I have found myself preparing for the worst. I have had weird anxiety dreams about horrible awful bad things happening in our family. Can a girl just get in on some unicorn dreams? 

I think it's the Walking Dead. We have been watching season 2 on Netflix, are you caught up? No spoilers please! But let me know how you are liking it. 

Well, I guess this was one of those filler posts. One of those posts that don't and won't move mountains. But maybe I can look back on this post and be like, "See, here is where I predicted that big thing that happened." 

Also, would anyone be interested in reading what I have to say on couponing or marriage?

What I Would Give to Be a SAHM

I've been thinking a lot about daycare lately. Or where my baby will be spending the days while I'm at work. I'm realizing now, even before the baby is born, that I would give anything to be a stay-at-home-mom. Unfortunately, we can't seem to work the finances where that would be an option.

Maybe there is someone out there that can offer me some advice. Are you a working mother? What does your baby do while you're at work? Are you a SAHM? How did you decide that was the best for your family? Is it a big financial hardship?

I genuinely feel guilty already. The baby is growing so much, inside me, and I can't imagine how much they will grow when they're out! I just want to be the one that gets to love on them, teach them, be with them.

I'm praying... But maybe you have advice? Will you share your story with me?

My First Letter to Little One

Hey there Little One, 

I've had a lot going on lately, and so many emotions filling me this week. I HEARD your little heartbeat on Thursday. I didn't know it was going to affect me like it did. As soon as my midwife put the "heartbeat wand" (my definition, clearly.) on my belly, I heard your heart. It's good and strong, and so perfect. It took all of my strength not to break down and cry with joy in the appointment. 

Oh Little One, I hope you can feel how much love I already have for you. I'm crying like a baby just thinking about it. Until now, I didn't think I would ever love someone as much as I love your father, but I know now that I was wrong. I love you so much. 

I've had lots of morning sickness up until now. I'm so thankful that I'm getting a rest from that. I can hardly stand how bad I want to know if you are a boy or a girl. We find out next month. I think you're a girl, and Dad thinks you're a boy. We don't care either way, we just want you healthy. But if you are a girl, will you please be a no-drama type of girl? That's our my biggest fear, that you will be half as much drama as my sisters and I were. If you're a boy can you please refrain from being a 'typical boy' and peeing on me and everything? (That's what we are getting when people talk about their baby boys! They just say that they pee... on everything.)

I just talked to your Aunt Chelsey and she thinks you are a boy too. She says she wishes that you are a girl so that Tinley will have someone to play with. I told her that even if you are a boy, Tinley will still have a younger cousin to play with. There are lots of babies in our family, Little One. Aunt Chelsey and Tinley, Aunt Lindsay and her baby boy, cousin Jezzni and cousin Melissa! So many little playmates for you. Family gatherings are going to be so fun! 

I could go on and on with talking to you. Just know that I love you so deeply. I can't wait to have you in my arms, Little One. 

Love you, Little One. 
-Mom (Ahh!! That's the first time I referred to myself as "Mom"! Ahhhhh....)

My First Trimester

All that I can say is "phew! I'm glad it's almost over!"

Most of the time I haven't felt pregnant or I feel sick. (Lots of being sick).

I'm so blessed to have a husband that feeds the dogs for me (because the smell absolutely makes me gag), he makes the occasional dinner, takes out the trash, and does the dishes! Can we say that I won the lottery with this guy?!

But on a more serious note, I've decided that I'm switching doctors. I've only had one appointment, but I felt uncomfortable from the get-go.

I'm switching to a midwife! This is something that I'm beyond excited about, so excited that I'm going to write an ENTIRE blog post about it. ;)

Here's a little graphic I made for my first trimester.

Of course there had to be more to say on the "first trimester" matter. But really, it all sounds like complaining. I mean am I right?

Have you ever heard a woman say, "Man! This is the best trimester! I feel great! Unicorns! Rainbows!"
Nope? I didn't think so.

There is only one thing I know for sure. I'm getting fatter, and I'm so enjoying this process and the knowledge that comes with it. I can feel my heart swelling for this baby. I feel so connected, like this is exactly what I'm made for... caring for this baby.

Many hugs!

How We Told Facebook About The Baby

We just added this photo to our timeline. It's pretty much the only way we would release news. We are dorks.

The Day We Found Out We Are Pregnant


Yep, we are pregnant. Currently I'm about 9 weeks pregnant.

You know how when God is trying to tell you something is about to happen by giving you warning signs? Well He knows that I need these warning signs to learn anyways.

I quit my job a week before we found out. We didn't tell my family or anyone for that matter that I was quitting because well I hated it and that was enough for me and Jacob. The warning sign was when I told my sister, Charyse that I had quit my job she said, "I hope you're not pregnant!". That made a little light go off in my head (PING!). But I was only one or two days late. I couldn't be pregnant. We are VERY careful, have been for 3 years.

The second warning sign was when I went to the store with Jacob and said, "Oh, I need to get girly supplies."
His response was, "Why? You're pregnant."

We took the pregnancy the same week. The first one we tried was one of those two pink lines ones. Well there was one really dark line and a VERY faint pink second line. I convinced myself that it was negative. Directly after taking that test, Jacob and I were talking (well he was talking-- I was crying).

My mom called right then. (How does she know!?) It wasn't for that reason.

My dad was in the hospital. She needed me to drive her to her house to get clothes, they didn't know how long they were going to be there. (EEErrrch? You mean it's THAT serious?).

I left shortly after that to drive her. Jacob was left thinking about the possibility that we were pregnant, and I was left with the same thought just clouded by what my dad was going through.

When I returned the same evening, Jacob was waiting with a digital pregnancy test. "Pee on this one."

I did. I couldn't look. A lot had happened that day and I didn't know if I could even read.

"Pregnant" it read.

I was elated, mostly scared (I mean- I didn't have a job and talk about bad timing!), but I was happy too. We have wanted to be parents since day one, given we definitely didn't plan on it, but blessing all the same.

We told my mom the same day, really within the same couple of hours, that my family found out that my dad had cancer.

It's funny how things work out.

I was feeling such a mixture of emotions. I felt guilty for being so happy that we were having a baby and simultaneously feeling horrible for my dad.

Stage three cancer, 5 weeks pregnant. That's all I could think about.

I think that this has really increased my faith. Praying everyday for a faith, healing, and favor for both my dad and praying for health for my sweet baby. Praying that He doesn't take either one from us. 

I'm faithful for the healthy baby. I'm faithful that God is going to heal my dad.

I Revived My Blog... Sorta

Well, I let my domain name expire and then some Japanese company (?) took it over. So I'm back to good ol' .blogspot.

It's been a long time since I've blogged. And I should probably say why. It's just that I don't really have a reason. I just didn't blog. I got busy and left it alone. Now I'm less busy, and I want to get back to it.

I will catch up on what's happened here at our house my next post, but for now I want to go and read everyone else's blog!

I love you because we hate the same things

When I saw this quote on Pinterest, I laughed-pinned-laughed some more! (Apparently so did Jake, because he pinned the same thing). Jacob and I are so snarky and sarcastic, that I forget we are being mean sometimes.

We have a hard time staying positive, but that's really who we are. We are more the "cup being half empty" and "the rest of the world is being stupid" type of couple. We can't help it! This may be a little far fetched to believe, but we are really genuinely nice people... just deep down. :P

But, what got me thinking today was a picture on Facebook of a new couple posting pictures of their gifts they got each other. (I thought it was silly too). But, the girl got the guy some red vines and his favorite tea, and the boy reciprocated with the girl's favorite type of sharpie. (It's getting sillier, huh?).

I was thinking how silly we all are when we first get together with our loved ones. We tend to cling onto little bits of information about the other (like knowing Jacob loves Ice cream, reeses flavor in particular). We want to show the other how much we know about them, like the smallest details are the most important.

Now, even though I would prefer for bigger/better gifts than a pack of red vines, I still realize it's the small things that matter the most.

I don't know if I've quoted this before, but it's still one of the best bits of advice I've ever received.

"In marriage, you should always give your spouse twice as much as your receiving. This keeps the scales from ever being balanced."

So, my question is... What silly thing have you done for your spouse/significant other? Did you get him some red vines? What about some ice cream? Go show them that you care so much that you want the scales to be unbalanced. You want to give them way more than you could ever receive!

Gallery Wall - Phase One

So, I have a bare wall that I'm ready to do a gallery wall. I don't know exactly what prints I want up there yet, but I thought I would share my phase one. Phase one is the planning phase in my house. I like to think about things for a while before I commit.

Let me know what you think and if you know of any good places to get art/prints.

There, I said it!

Alright, aside from the fact my computer repulses me, there are a few other reasons I've struggled with blogging. (My computer repulses me because I very literally spend 8 hours on it and when I get home I would rather stare into the sunlight than get back on the computer).

*Real quick, my big girl job is going great so far. I love being busy at work, I just wish I could learn to balance*

Okay, back to my original thought, why I've struggled with blogging lately.
1) I don't feel like what I have to say is important enough to blog about. 
I don't know when this shift of my thoughts and feelings being important to where I'm at now. I feel like these thoughts are so personal, that no one will relate. Or sometimes I don't think I have much of an opinion about ANYTHING! Seriously.

There are other times when I look at other peoples' blogs and say, "why do they think I care what they ate for breakfast, or what they wore, or how cute their kids are, or how blah blah blah blah." But you know what, it is important to someone. Moving on...

2) I feel small in the blogosphere. 
There is a certain bout of confidence that comes with blogging, and then there are certain insecurities. This ties back in with #1, but mostly it's just that I compare myself to others WAY too much.

I'm lazy. I've been lazy. I've been uninspired to do the necessary amount of work blogging requires.

There, I said it! I suck. But I can say with the most sincerity that I have, I will get better at this. I will find a voice, and I will be back to tear my blog up!

Monday, May 21, 2012

Moving stuff around!

As you can see I'm redoing a couple of things around my blog. Excuse the mess.

Want to see my inspiration for the whole redesign?

Decade of Hair

Well, there it is. The good, the bad, and the awkward. Just a side note: don't judge me for wanting straight hair (my hair is naturally curly), I lived through the avril lavign hair stage! Sheesh, we're all lucky we made it out alive! :P Also, I don't have many pics of myself for 2012. That must say something about my attitude toward self portraits lately... humph.

A Look Inside My New (old) House

Our house was built in 1930, so it's on the grandpa side of the century.  I love it so much here. The first word that people usually say is "cute". Cute is good. :) It has just felt like home since the day we moved in. Here's the first look into our house... ever. The pictures are taken of my [unfinished] living room and from the outside. After we regroup from the move and all of the new payments, we'll decorate further. (I'm having a blast picking things out).

Front door. We've added some plants and lights. :)

Come on in. 
But first, say "hi" our gnomie to Humphrey Bartholomew  Skaggs
What you see first. Note: the dog toys. :P
The mantle possibilities are endless! 
And the dogs just love it here. :) 
Well, I hope you enjoyed a little peek into our home. You can tell it's not decorated fully. Jacob has all kinds of plans for the electronics in the house. [I love him.] I just really love having our own house. I also love that I don't have to worry about my address changing for a long time!

Have a great day!

It's okay to be a "different" blogger

I don't know if you know this about me, but I'm a little on the weird side. I'm all over the map with my emotions and I tend to get cray. What can I say? That's who I am.

Today, I had a little extra time in the morning so I thought I would check on my friend's blogs, and even surf some that I haven't seen before. Instead of making me happy, like it normally does, it made me sad.

I got sad looking at everyone else. I felt like my blog was not good enough... compared to theirs.

Let me just say, WHO CARES? There is not an emperor of the blogosphere that says, "Kylee's blog is the worst blog compared to blogA, blogB, and BlogC. No one read it, ever!"
(I know you're hearing the emperor's voice, don't lie.)

I'm just saying that no matter what you write about, no matter how weird you may be, no matter what the friggin' emperor of blogging in your mind says about your blog, BLOG ANYWAYS! You can be exactly who you are. In my case that's a weirdo, neurotic, curly headed, mess of a woman, that knows only one thing for sure.

--In the long run, is it really worth caring about someone else's blog being better than yours?--

(Chances are there are some blogs that make them feel like crap too)
Have a great day!!

Our First Home

We bought a house! About 2 weeks ago, we closed on our first home. It was a very long and sometimes fun, most of the time not fun experience. We haven't done much except for unpack and try to chill out.

Lately, I have graduated from college, we bought a house, we bought a car (out of necessity), I started my new job (I LOVE IT!), and have been unpacking and trying to decorate.

I've been in this weird mood lately. I don't want to do much. I don't know if it's because I've been rushing around for four years-- studying and whatnot. But I haven't been real talkative. And I really haven't wanted to blog.

You see, here's where I'm at in my head. My life is important to me, but not really anyone else's, so why share it on my blog. I've been praying a lot about how to "reach" people on a deeper level than me saying what I did for the day and someone reading and going on with their lives.

I want to make a difference, an impact. I want to be heard, not about the small things, but about the greater things. This could all just be the "I just graduated now I need to be someone" talk. But I'm serious. I'm almost in a state of depression (which for me is just really long periods of deep thought).

I'm excited about the house, and I hope to be getting out of this funk. ONWARD!

Tornados don't discriminate- Woodward, OK.

I was raised near Woodward, OK. Around 12:30 a.m. it was hit by a tornado.

 A large portion of the town is demolished. It took so many of my friends' homes in its wake.

But then again, the tornado didn't know that.
It didn't know that it hurts me to see this town in shambles.
It didn't know that it would fill my dreams with terror to think about my family being less than a mile from it.

Tornados don't discriminate...

(These are all pictures compiled from Facebook friends and news sources. I will give photo credits as best I can).

What's been going on lately.

It's been awhile since I posted about what's been going on in my little ol' life. 

Lately, I've been so busy I can't think. I've been trying to just take things a day at a time, and blogging has taken a back burner. And that makes me sad. 

Here's what's been happening. 
  • We are buying a house. I haven't talked much about it because every time I do, I jinx something. But at this point I think it's okay to talk about. Can't wait to show you pictures. We're supposed to be closing on the 25th. 13 short days. WOO HOO!!
  • I'm graduating from college in about 3 weeks. I've decided not to walk. But the thought of finishing school has both frightened and excited me. I also have a mean case of senioritis and I don't want to do anything. 
  • I'm still looking for a job to pursue after school gets done. I had an interview this week, we'll see if that pans out. (fingers crossed).
  • God has been blessing Jacob and I a lot lately. We were struggling to keep our sanity last month and this month He is taking good care of us. It's funny what can happen when you give God the control. 
So yea... between being a wife (which I need to improve at), buying a house (which can suck and be awesome at the same time), and trying to finish school (so close!!), I have been a little busy. 

I have big plans for May involving the blog. I can't wait to share. 

Until next time, friends. Please excuse my absence over the next couple of weeks.
I will leave you with a couple of pics from Easter. 
With love! 
Sweet (most of the time) Nephew, Grant James.

Let Me Design Your Blog!

Okay, so this is a Sincerely, Kylee first! 

Starting now, I will be offering a CUSTOM blogger blog designs for just $50. This is a completely customized design, we will talk about what you want/like and you will get it! 

The reason why this is so cheap is because I really want to see if there's anyone interested in letting me design their blog, and I am graduating soon-- I would love to make blog design a paid hobby. 

I have designed my blog from the beginning. I'm not a certified graphic designer, but I think I have sufficient skills/experience to do your blog design! 

Hurry and email me at sincerelykylee(at)gmail(dot)com, I'm only doing two custom designs in April. 

*You can expect quality and COMPLETE satisfaction with your blog's design. You do not pay me until you're satisfied. 

To-Do Tuesday: Get a job!

"Get a job"

I've been working for a few weeks now on putting together a resume, portfolio, and actually going to apply for jobs. I've been searching and applying to what seems like a million jobs. Yet, I haven't heard back from anyone yet.

How should I perceive this? Should I be patient? Should I continue to hunt?

I have been going out of my mind to figure out what the heck God is going to do with me.
Have you heard that quote, "Want to make God laugh; tell him your plans"

So today's to-do is to have some faith in the big, wonderful God that is GOING to do something with me.

What are you doing today? Is there something on your heart?
