Everyone needs an outlet. Hopefully a positive one. But judgements are left at the door here.
With my music background- singing is one of them. Music is and always be. But touching into creativity has always been my thing. Writing has been one of those ways. An outlet for me. I can’t tell you how much I write that will never be published. It’s for me, it’s for another person. If you’ve followed me a bit I know you get that.
I’m the most real when I forget about others expectations and am just am. And this is new for me. It’s a freeing, scary really. But I don’t think I’ve ever been more honest with myself.
So that word vomit. Back to point.
Have your outlet. Whatever it may be. I love getting a recording studio, I love to sing as loud as I can. And while that’s on hold till I move- well maybe-explore other options.
I started painting. You may have been witness to dickasaurus but we graduated from that. Tonight I sat down and was going to replicate a piece I had done a month back and absolutely couldn’t.
I literally used the same shades of paint and my emotions completely came out instead. 

   
 I hated it. Stopped working on it. And it is what it is. I’m at a very unique cross road.
I’ve been done with this whole ideal honestly since the beginning of the year and tomorrow comes the final close…. Sign sealed delivered… I’m not yours. 
It’s a relief, it’s confusing, it’s done.
This may be confusing as I’ve started to talk about other people. Not to be discussed now. And trust me- S has been done for so long…but tomorrow is another day in all reality.
You deal with the remainder of the wedding stuff all in one day, get in touch with your favorites and carry on. Kcco right?
This painting is so different than I expected and honestly-letting me belt out a song would have been more effective. But.
We got this. Thanks for loving me through all of it and being patient. I appreciate you more than you know. And I do want to assure you. I’m more than okay.
Sometime life blows up but it brings you to the next best thing in more ways than one. 
Update tomorrow-

Ps. I had a great weekend, adulted the shit out of it and can’t wait to tell you about hoe amazing parts of it were 

Exploring Alaska: Kenai

Hey friends!

So this month I’ve decided to focus on some things I’m thankful for, and believe me there’s a lot.that being said I’d like to share my latest adventure with you.

Two weeks S came home. I was so beyond excited to spend a solid two weeks with him. He got a call to work in Kenai during his time off and… Not going to lie, I was bummed. Overnight, two days, more? We weren’t really sure. I tried to play it cool, but when given the opportunity (this is the most positive spin I can put on it) to leave midweek and meet him there… I jumped on it.

After a two minute conversation that consisted of “no.. I don’t want to spend another night apart….” I packed a bag in under five minutes and got in the car.

Side note: I have two phones, work and personal.

i left my personal cell at phone, got in the car, having no idea where I was going and got in the car. I stopped for directions and made the three hour plus drive without gps. Also, half way through lost radio and cell service… Leaving me belting Celine Dion a Capella  for over an hour to provide my own entertainment. I made it without gps, which for those who know me was a huge accomplishment for all those directionally challenged… And made it to Kenai.

S was at work for another couple hours, so I took a bath and a nap. When he finally arrived at the hotel we went to dinner. Now the next part I will be vague for all parties involved. Long story short, S’s ex also happened to be stating in Kenai….at the same hotel…next door to the room of ours.

Awkward to say the least, and on my end I made a mistake.Lesson learned. Don’t be friendly, ignore the situation and move on for future reference. Anyways! After seeing her at breakfast the next morning… Of course with no hair and make up…again…. I decided to explore Kenai.

With S at work for the day, I headed to the front desk, eager to explore the town. I asked the front desk what I should do for the day. And…I wish I could make this shit up…she said, ” well we just got a Walmart.”

So I head to said Walmart, buy a book and other necessities and head to the beach.

imageimage

After about a whole 5 minutes freezing and over it, I run into a local and ask about a coffee shop. And this is where I struck gold. The cutest place I’ve ever seen.

Welcome to the cutest place in Kenai Alaska… And maybe the only place… The Veronica’s.

imageimage

I grabbed my book, ordered a latte, and sat watching the rain and the ocean. I sent a text message to the boyfriend thanking him for the opportunity to relax and enjoy myself. Without social media, without my phone… Just me, the ocean, and one of my first loves…John Grisham.

image

The next day we took off to Anchorage. In separate cars. I hate driving. But… Would I drive six hours to see him for five minutes, or to have dinner with him or be in his harms…. Absolutely.

i can’t wait for our continued adventures and a mini vacay to disconnect…. I am so thankful.

The Red Cup of Doom

I originally wasn’t going to post anything about this ridiculous “trend” and social media rant because I feel that the issue has already gotten more attention than it deserves.

But when jumping on my news feed this morning, I was pleasantly surprised to see the news feed exploding with Thank You’s to our Veterans instead of everyone talking about how they don’t care about cups. Myself, guilty included… did post about it. And do you know what that did? Made a bigger deal about the damn non-holiday cup than it needed to be.

What did we accomplish with this movement? Well, we proved the power of social media. What could we have done with this power otherwise? Couldn’t we have actually brought attention to a cause that was worth discussing?

On my post, a friend wrote: STARBUCKS has a CHRISTMAS blend. They play CHRISTMAS music.

And you know what? She was right.

It’s their choice as an organization to do what they want with their damn cups. I’m curious how many people went to Starbucks just to do the Merry Christmas prank- could this have brought actually more business to Starbucks?

I won’t rant on this further. I am happy to see that our nation has chose to focus on Veterans Day.

Which by the way, thank you so much for your incredible service. Our nation would not be what it is without you. So many of my family and friends have given the ultimate sacrifice, and for that we thank you.

On a light note, I’ll leave you some of my favorite posts about the red cup.

Cheers!

I will never stop trying

I will never stop trying….

Life comes at you. You have two options. To continue and push through or to stop. I will push.

Things change, don’t go according to plan, and it happens.

S being gone is harder than I thought. I miss him. We make big decisions via text.I’m sitting in his t shirt, I get giddy every time my phone buzzes. The hardest part? That this is the normal. That this happens half the time. It doesn’t help I have the next week off work. That I need something to occupy my time with. I’ve had the same song on repeat for days….

I’ll never stop trying
I’ll never stop watching as you leave
I’ll never stop losing my breath
Every time I see you looking back at me
I’ll never stop holding your hand
I’ll never stop opening your door
I’ll never stop choosing you babe
I’ll never get used to you

It has become so apparent how much I love him. I hate every second away from him. But I know he’s doing the right thing. Does that make me selfish? Recently during a disagreement, he wrote a letter, I just read it, and I can’t help but love him more.  Even whens hes upset, hes still the person I want and need through everything.

Through our parents, who expressed concern, but then have come around…. and while this is crazy… support us.  Us. That’s a strong word- something that wont change.

That being said- I signed up for this. I knew the time away, and I have experienced the time together. And yes, it is worth it.

I will never get used to you

So we move on. Power through it. Love the five minute conversations, the kiss on the forehead, the text that  makes your heart melt, his tshirt….

sometimes its the little things.

You did not just say that to me….

Warning: This post contains language.  Writing helps me work through a situation and I am also sharing this to show that it is NEVER okay to say these words to anyone.

I work an interesting job. I talk to people about rape. So, when an individual comes up to me it generally goes three ways.

One. The person genuinely cares. They want to volunteer or perhaps make a donation. They ask on how they can help.  They thank me and move on.

Two. The person is going to disclose something to me. Generally on how its impacted them. Whether it be them personally or someone close to them. This also happens when they tell me that they know someone that has used our services. This person is also generally grateful and involved.

And my favorite.

Three.  This db has a strong opinion and wants to tell me about it. Now this one is generally my favorite because I will debate anything- but an experience I have a connection with and am passionate about- bring it.

Today, at a company’s name I will not disclose- the third happened to me.

And what came out of their mouth may have been one of the most offensive things anyone has ever said to me. Ready for it? A man came up to me and said, and I quote…

“Beautiful women like you can be bought and sold…” (the rest really doesn’t matter at this point, but it was derogatory)

Are you fucking kidding me?

I wish I could make this shit up. And be prepared the rest of this email is going to be a rant with a lot of four letter words.

Bought and sold?

No. No I cannot. I am a person, a woman at that and I have my own rights. Lots of them actually. We’ve kind of worked are ass off on this one. Are you kidding me? I initially just kind of sat there stunned- and I wish I wish I would have said something back. A couple thoughts instantly came to mind. Okay I passed a security guard on the way in, sex trafficking is a big deal in Anchorage, was he just trying to shake me up, shit I have a name tag on and he knows where I work, call my boss…..

So I went with that. Very calmly she asked me if security was there and to leave. Now. And to come back to the office to debrief. Thankfully I work with a great group of men and women and the first person I spoke with our counselor. She asked me if I was shaking- I didn’t realize it but I was.  How could I let some douche bag be affecting me like this? It was just a stranger who obviously has some shit going on. Was this a legitimate threat? Is it a threat? Am I over reacting? It could just a random person trying to get a rise out of me.

But in my world- we take safety seriously. I know the stats. I know how very real this is. I can see a sex trafficking operation from my office window. I know how hard it is to stop it. I also know I live by myself. I do most things by myself. I go to functions where I identify where I work- a lot. Many people in the community know who I am. I open myself up with a blog and social media.

So back to what he said.

Bought? No. Not by money. Not by gifts. Not by anything. My love and affection can be earned- but certainly- yes most certainly not bought.

And sold? Are you fucking kidding me? What does the rate go for that? For me personally? Do you want to put a value on my self-worth? What am I being sold for exactly? Do I go for more because you think I’m beautiful?

Some may think I’m being dramatic but I dare you to have someone say this to you and not react. Better yet- have someone say that to your daughter, your girlfriend, and your best friend… anyone you love and tell me how that is.

Thank you to the awesome people at my office. And while it doesn’t matter what I was wearing- I could have been naked- it could have been my boyfriend- anyone…. And it still wouldn’t have been appropriate.

But this is what I was wearing. No one asks for it. No one should be talked to that way. Ever. Period. End of story.

unnamed (1)

This is why I work where I do. This is why we talk about prevention. This is why we are advocates and educators. Because fuck people who have the mindset to say anything like that. How ignorant, rude, disrespectful. This is why we are making a difference and a change. To ensure that my children don’t grow up in a world that is ever this is okay.  Ever.

Tell someone you love them today. Tell them how awesome they are. Because that’s what they deserve.

So to this dude- where ever you are- let this be a lesson to you. This was not okay. I don’t care how old you are, or if you think I’m attractive… this girl cannot be bought or sold for that matter for anything.

What I learned from my birthday this year…

This is the first birthday that I’ve ever spent away from home. The first single one I can remember being so distant from the ones I love the most and in an attempt to not have a crying breakdown- my first sober one since high school.

Don’t get me wrong I would have loved to have started with mimosas all day long- but sobbing on the phone to an ex boyfriend at the end of the day. I’ll pass. So it was different to say the least.

And if you texted me and I didn’t respond- I probably didn’t get it. My phone is really weird here. My second line 208-449-8649 or my cell is the best way to get a hold of me. Or you could always call, email and join the pen pal band wagon a few of my friends have gotten on board to.

And I didn’t get a few calls from people I was really expecting. I’m assuming your phones broken. And Zachary you get a free pass. I mean it was 1am but I was so mad at you until then. Ps. I’m super proud of you and your success of your man bun 🙂 miss you love.

Anyways. Birthdays always suck for me. I put up such high expectations that the world will stop for me for an entire day and just tell me how wonderful I am. Thankfully for me Facebook kind of makes that happen. But seriously, I partially blame my mother. She did the greatest birthdays for us ever. Like for my 16th she took me to Vegas to see Celine Dion and buy my prom dress. Those kind of birthdays.

So when I’m 3000 miles away and the highlight of my day was sushi with about 20 people I didn’t know…. It was different. Maybe it’s a part of growing up. You reach a part and a point where it suddenly isn’t all about you anymore. That the world doesn’t stop just for you for anything.

I also am struggling with this late 20s thing. No longer mid twenties. Big sigh. I mean this isn’t fitting into my 10 year plan. I want to have kids around 30, be married for two years before that, be engaged for at least a year. So I needed to be engaged last month…. Which I kind of thought was happening six months ago. Let’s just say that my plan and my timeline is not going to work out.

It’s funny the way things work. I made about with my high school boyfriend that if we weren’t married by 25 we would give it a shot. At 24 we pushed it out to 35 and then this summer I made him bring it back to 30 after finding all his letters from high school and him being a rock after the breakup. While its fun to think of- I doubt this pact whole hold. I mean we didn’t sign it in blood or anything.

Beyond being off my timeline, birthdays always give you time to look back at the past year. I would say 25-27 were the best years of my entire life. With the exclusion of about two months in there and a month of that was the month before 27- it was amazing. I don’t need to go into it now but it’s hard to sit and reflect without missing some of the good parts. A lot of the really good parts.

With that I will leave with this thought-

Accept your past will not get any better, move on without hesitation. Learn from your mistakes, cherish the good memories and continue putting one foot in front of there and know that there will be obstacles and victories in your way.

Here’s to another year, cheers!

Apartment Update & Throwback Thursday

Happy almost Friday lover faces!

Warning: this post has lots of hashtags- for those hashtag haters- please watch this video first:

I’ll be the first to admit that I tend to be a little bit of a social media whore girl. Part of my job is to see whats trending, whats happening on fb and don’t get me started on my favorite past time, Pinterest (side note- if we aren’t following each other, let’s do that shall we? I have like 5 boards dedicated to weddings, an engagement ring board with out having a boyfriend, a bunch of recipes I will most likely not get around to, and more DIY projects than I possibly have for) #endPinterestrant

Anyways.

A trend I’m loving is #throwbackthursday. Before I get started with some old- and some embarrassing pictures- there is a preface to what encouraged this weeks photos. 

I moved a little over 6 weeks ago. I’m by myself- which I have a love hate relationship with. No need to go into it. This is an upgrade from living with two lovely girls this summer- but still a downgrade from the 4 bedroom house I’m used to. Yes- I did have to give up my closet floor. I know I know #firstworldproblems.

Its all apart of this being a grown up process. I’m working on it…. SHINY OBJECT…Back to my point. It took me probably a good 6 months to decorate our house, so I shouldn’t be surprised that it still looks like someone just moved in my new place. I have decorate a little, hung curtains, bought furniture, and of course my closet is done. BUT if anyone wants to come hang the ikea floating shelf of doom, or the 50 pound mirror (life lesson #832, yes it does need a stud) please be my guest.

I love to decorate with pictures, specifically family photos and long term friends (this way you aren’t redecorating every time a new man boy comes along). I found several old photos that instantly made me smile, and I thought I would share them with you. 

ImageNow this has to be one of my favorite pictures of me and my dad ever. While ever is a bold statement- I can look at this picture every day and it will still bring a smile to my face. 

Image

Coming up with a favorite picture of my mom is a little more challenging- most likely because there are too many to choose from. The older I get, the more I get told the more we look a like. I don’t see it, but any comparison to my mom has to be a major compliment. While this may not be my favorite picture, its one of my absolute favorite memories. Yep that’s right, 16th Birthday. My family tends to go all out on Birthday which might be where I learned to have birthday months errr weeks. This birthday in particular I don’t ever feel  will be topped. Let me give the the cliff notes version, because I have a feeling this might require its own post soon. 

Here it is: my favorite person and lifetime best friend, VEGAS, Celine Dion concert (I honestly cried through the entire thing I was so happy), my first Tiffany’s purchase, dressing up, looking at wedding venues and buying my “one of kind” prom dress. 

For those of you who know me, yes my mom did put ALL of my favorite things into a weekend. Best memories EVER!

ImageAnd while my brother originally posted this on Facebook as payback for posting an embarrassing picture of him… I must admit I have a thing for Marilyn, as my 8 year old self wanted to be her for Halloween too.  I can at least say that I think this years costume was at least a little more well done.

Hope you all are having a fantastic week- and at least we are almost to Friday! 

xoxo

Long time coming…

Hello lover faces-

It has recently been brought to my attention that I haven’t blogged in forever. I would love to tell you its because my life has been so crazy and exciting- but maybe quite the opposite. Unless you consider sweat pants and terrible reality television excitement- if so, we should probably be friends.

Lets do a quick catch up, and I’ll get back on the regular routine of this. Who doesn’t want to blog through the Holidays anyway? There’s enough DIY failures, family drama, and kitchen disasters to provide you entertainment for days. And if not- there’s always my love life…

Just saying.

Back to the recap.

I did a fantastic photo shoot with an old friend from Elementary school. Will do an entire post about that soon- but here are some teasers. Details include our history of shoving cupcakes in faces and what a failure blowing leaves like glitter turned out to be.

Halloween turned out to be a lot of fun. People at my work go all out. I didn’t win a single contest- which I’m still not over. Cube decorating contest, I put fabric on my walls- with TULLE accents. And then some bitch built a haunted house… like legitimately. She also has a love for all things glitter- so I guess I will let it slide- but watch out during Christmas time.

Halloween 2013

New boyfriend

Yes—- that is a JFK taped onto my boyfriend pillow. Best and worst part of my costume- I didn’t have to buy anything for it. Like honestly. And my fur was my grandmothers- totally legit.

Oh- PS. I got a new job. Its for something I actually went to school for. While I won’t post full details… perks include intense nerf gun fights. Seriously. CANT. wait. for. newbie.iniation.to.be.over

And I successfully made a glitter pumpkin. Granted theres still glitter in my car despite cleaning it out- but hey, sacrifices were made.

Image

RAWR

Franklin was a T-Rex, which I still can’t get over… big head little arms. Greatest costume ever.

On the boy stand front- yeah I’m pretty sure if I could date myself that would be great. Just kidding- kind of. In all sincerity, the older I get, the more changes what I’m looking for- and the harder it is to find. Who knew prince charming would be that difficult.

Current Jams:

Favorite sayings right now:

  • Acceptance does not require your approval.
  • Trust God. Clean House. Help Others

Amazing Blogs you should follow:

  • Life with Lolo – Laura and I went to U of I together and her blog is a perfect mix of being a grown up, every trending thing happening right now, and pictures of the cutest puppy I have ever seen.
  • Thousand Little Choices- also a friend from U of I- first dorm roommate actually. Katie has an INSPIRING story about her first years of marriage with her charming husband. Lately I can’t get enough of her honesty and willingness to put it all out there. She admits that it isn’t easy- but does something about it. Seriously can’t get enough!

True Cassie moment:

  • I also got a big lesson in why I should seriously avoid hitting curbs with my car. $700, 4 wheels, and a BIG “I told you so”…I most likely will be a little more carefully. Hopefully.

Current Obsessions:

  • Candy crush (shut up shut up)
  • Wishing I was in AK with one of my lovlies- or to get her to move here
  • Salmon Cakes from Pilgrims. Cant get enough!

Off to have coffee with the bestie, its been far too long I assure you. I promise to get back on track with this. I have so much to tell you- honestly. Let’s catch up- I’ve missed you

XOXO

Warning- this post contains more pictures than usual

Hello Friends!

Image

View from the office, aka Java today

Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Yesterday while watching a Sex and the City marathon in my sweats I thought, gosh I feel really bad for everyone camping. And then I realized they decided to go camping in the first place… sorry outdoor friends I had to.

My birthday week was different that what I expected, but if my life has taught me anything is that when I have high expectations, it generally doesn’t go well. Again- working on that living in the moment thing.

Image

Day one of the Birthday swag- I’m such a lucky girl this wasn’t even half of it. So blessed

 

My absolute high point was going to Beverely’s with my bestie. If I haven’t told you how awesome she is- seriously the best. 

Image

LOVE HER

 

I wish I had taken a picture of my entire outfit. Cobalt blue top, a black sequin skirt and metallic gladiator sandals. I LOVED it- cant wait to pair it with heels for a night out. She is seriously the most thoughtful with gifts ever. She got me the CUTEST jewelry that totally fits my personality, and more importantly a new bible, journal and daily devotional book.

My faith has always seemed to be one extreme or the other and I am now realizing that what I need right now is a connection with a higher being of myself. Before I continue about the Birthday, I was having a rough day trying to understand well, life and this is what the daily devotional said for me that day…

“Seek me with your whole being. I desire to be found by you, and I orchestrare the events of your life with purpose in mind.”

Could not be more perfect for me right now.

BACK to the Birthday. She also got me a card that she has been saving since December and I laughed so hard I cried. I also had a gift for her as well, as it was our nine year anniversary. We met the day of my 16th birthday in choir and complemented on each others shoes- the rest is history.

Image

Birthday desert

I spent the rest of the day with my sister in law for all intensive purposes and the cutest kiddos ever. The three year old thoroughly enjoyed the cotton candy leftovers and cuddling with my niece is my favorite.

Image

Eating my Kate Spade phone cover (it was better than the phone) got to start them young!

I also had lunch with one of my favorite people EVER. We went to Scratch, I had a grown up grilled cheese sandwich and scallops which were bomb. Beyond the FANTASTIC company, my mom’s secretary happened to be there- knew it was my birthday and bought us lunch. So sweet. I also got an amazing Starbucks gift card which may or may not already be gone.

Image

the best!

Other Birthday included going to the fair the Sam (notice one of the only names on my blog- after I outed him after the break up). We actually had a REALLY good time and acted like total kids, eating sausages and french fries, winning stuffed animals, and both one of screamed like little girls on some of the rides. I have also not laughed that hard in a really long time. While there was no Notebook scene on the ferris wheel…overall a great Friday night.

Image

Fair Night

Sam also knows me too well and gave me a very generous gift card to coach- ladies, send me your favorites now. I’ve bought two coach purses within the past 6 months and am still in LOVE with the Kate Spade he bought me for Christmas…so I might wait a bit.

Sam’s parents were also kind enough to drop me off a present and one of the funniest cards I’ve ever seen. Not only was it beyond kind- but completely unexpected. It’s been an interesting change and I honestly do miss his parents. They were a part of my life for so long and always so loving and welcoming. Their thoughtfulness on my birthday really brightened my day.

I’ve been reconnecting with my Dad quite a bit which has been nice. I also decided to help coach a 5 year old little girls soccer team. I think giving back is so important- and adorable kiddos is probably the best way to do so. If you or any other organization needs help let me know.

Long story short about the job. My boss resigned/was let go…and my position/department no longer exists. While I’m looking for a new job, I’m in no rush this time. I want something that is a great fit for me, not something that I will move on from in 6 months. Ideally I would love to do PR or Marketing for a non-profit.

I feel like I could write for another hour but should probably get some work done. I will leave you with part of my outfit for the day- I can’t believe it’s fall already!

Image

Floral print jeans- Target (seriously, I know right?)
Coral suede heels- Nordstroms

 

XOXO friends!
