Dear groceries...

...I'm thankful you're finally done. It's really nice having free time. Is it weird that sometimes I thoroughly enjoy alone time at the grocery store?! Our Kroger has this new scan-as-you-go system, and I was so intimidated I didn't give it a whirl last night. In my defense, I think you have to bring your own bags, but maybe next time I'll get the courage to try ;) #newthingsscareme

Dear Tuesday night... you freaking rocked. I watched a 2.5 hr free webinar with a favorite photographer of mine. At one point I had actual tears welling up, and thought "I CAN do this!". Katelyn motivated me, inspired me, and most of all made me realize that my hard work will pay off one day. My favorite line was "don't create a successful business to lose your personal life" - she talked a lot about time management and her editing process. It honestly resonated with me so much!

Dear little brother, your first day of work was yesterday! Can't wait to hear how it went!

Dear Jenna & Eric, your engagement session is seriously making me proud. I'm thankful I've gotten to know them, and that adorable little nose crinkle she gets when he makes her laugh!

Dear visa gift card I kind of forgot about... you made me a very happy girl last night :)

Dear Punta Cana... I'd really like to come visit you again!!! I miss your sandy white beaches, and yeah, even the awkward sunburn you gave me.

but... Dear Hilton Head... T minus 8 months until I see you again. Not that I'm counting down the days or anything....

Dear laser tag... you were SO fun this week! We had a youth-group outing with the teens and although I nearly came in last place, it was a blast!!! I had never done it before, so it was a little confusing at first BUT I can't wait to try again sometime! #nerdalert

Dear co worker who shall remain nameless... please stay far away today. You've tested my patience this week, and I'm not loving that ;)

Dear red cups... this whole "controversy" is ludicrous, I'm sorry that some people hate you this year. I still think you're pretty. More specifically, I like you a latte' (see what I did there) when you're free.

Dear weekend... I'm really excited for you. A little time with friends, and a lot of time with family.


  1. You don't need to bring your own bags ;) Go for it- I love scan and go!

  2. I LOVE scan as you go, it's so much faster. We bring our own bags but you don't have to, they usually supply them.

    Laser tag is sooooooo fun.

  3. I have no words for the whole red cup fiasco, but I will be enjoying my BOGO drinks this weekend! And yesssss to going back to Punta Cana. It's only been 2 weeks and I miss it so much!

    Happy Friday gurlie <3

  4. Scan as you go? That sounds intriguing. Sounds like a wonderful week, and I'm with you, I love the red cups no matter what anyone says! Especially for FREE!

  5. Happy weekending Kayla! Hope the rest of this day goes quietly and quickly :)

  6. We want to go to punta cana so bad but the resort we want to go to, I can't justify the price at the moment. But maybe I'll cave, ha!

  7. Jenna's hair is GORGEOUS- jealous!!! ;) And ugh, I've been day dreaming about beaches all week- TAKE ME BACK!

  8. Yeh to it all! Red cups especially :) I am daydreaming of planning a trip to the DR as well! Have a great weekend Kayla :)

  9. Ah that makes me want to go back to Punta Cana too! I love grocery shopping alone. Matt and I usually go together on Sunday afternoons, but I savor weeks where I go alone and can take my time with my list and wander up and down every aisle! Happy weekend! :)

  10. My nieces all want to go laser tagging and I'm so excited! I'm sure I'll come in last even when playing with a 9 and 11 year old.. but I'm sure it'll tons of fun! We have a self checkout here at our grocery store and it's the best thing ever! Specially when you don't feel like interacting, or when you have that item or 2..

    Have a great weekend!

  11. Laser tag is so fun!!!! We haven't played in years but oh my I love it
    Yea, I'm totally not mad at the cups either....2015 the year of an offended world
    Have a great weekend gal :)

  12. I'm already over the cold. And it's not really even cold here. So YES, let's go to Punta Cana ;)

    Oh haaaai, missed reading your blog last week. I'm about to go catch up! :)

  13. Kroger recently bought out a Midwest grocery company so I do believe in the future we will be getting a Kroger around my neck of the woods. I'm kind of excited because I always hear bloggers talking about shopping at their local Kroger and I just feel like I'm maybe missing out on the fun.


Thanks for your comments, I read and respond to every single one of them! :) Excited to get to know you!
