My Least Favorite Month

August is my least favorite month. #1 It’s always so dang hot and #2 School starts back (I’m not in school anymore but the years of starting school in August have ruined the month for me)

I think my dislike for this particular month all started when my sister and I were the flower girls in an August wedding. Not only did we have to wear these big pink poofy dresses (we were both tom boys so naturally we hated the dresses) but it was also the hottest day of the year, right around 120 degrees. The wedding and reception were held indoors so you think we would be protected from the heat…WRONG! The power went out! And let me just tell you that a room, filled with people and no air conditioning, heats up rather quickly. One of the bridesmaids actually passed out during the ceremony. It was so miserably hot! And ever since then, I have hated the month of August. September please get here soon!

P.S. Thank you for all your sweet comments yesterday about me constantly wearing the same hair style and shoes. You made me feel better about my hair and shoe rut 🙂

Step 1: Admitting I Have A Problem

Someone recently commented that I have been wearing my hair the same way (parted down the middle with a braid on each side) a lot lately. And then my sister commented that I must really like my Guess shoes because I have been wearing them a lot. I’ve been in denial about just how much I favor these styles but now it is time for me to make a change! I promise to make a conscious effort to style my hair differently and to wear different shoes.

Step 1: Admitting I have a problem: My name is Kacie and I am in a hair and shoe rut.

I’m doing better already! I styled my hair differently! Aren’t you proud of me?!

Yes, I am still wearing the same shoes. Baby steps, people.

My Gymnastics Days

Have you been watching the Olympics? I have! One of my favorite events in Gymnastics (along with swimming, diving, and beach volleyball). Watching gymnastics takes me back to my gymnastics days.

You see, there was a 4 year old girl who, at any chance she had, would run and do flips. So that little girls mother decided to take her to the gymnastics open gym to see if she liked it. The first thing the girl did was get on the balance beam, cartwheel and then flip off. The coach saw great potential in this little girl  and immediately knew she had to have her on the gymnastics team. The girl loved it! But then, the coach began to push the little girl to do tricks she wasn’t ready for, causing the girl to not enjoy it anymore. Eventually, that little girl decided to quit gymnastics.

You all probably thought that story was about me, it is not. It’s about my sister. You see, I went to open gym every weekend with my sister but the coach never asked me to join gymnastics. I mean, I think I had great potential too. Sure, I was pigeon toed and would occasionally constantly trip over my feet. But I had heart gosh darn it! I could have been one of those success stories where someone rises above the odds to win a gold medal. Guess it’s time for me to find a new dream.
