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!
