Currently Craving: Summer PJ’s

By | Uncategorized | 18 Comments

summer-pajamas

I love cute pajamas! I’m in my pj’s at the first chance I get. Most days that means 5:30 and sometimes even 3:00…or earlier. Since I get in my comfies so early, I want them to be cute but I also hate spending a lot of money on them because nobody sees me in my pj’s. In my search for cute and inexpensive pj’s, I discovered all the cute ones at Forever 21. (The ones in this post are under $20 and most are under $13!) Since the hubs is a lineman, I think I need these electrifying pj’s. And I think every blogger must own this blogger pj set.

Picnic with my Sister

See the gal in these pictures with me? Yup, she’s pretty much my favorite person on earth (sorry, hubby. lol) This gal, my friends, is my sister, Jamie. You may have heard a thing or two about her on this here blog before. She’s the one who taught me the importance of tying my shoes by tripping me and giving me a bloody nose. Hopefully she has figured out a better way to teach that lesson to children because she’s going to be a mom soon! And mothers giving their children bloody noses is frowned upon.
I went home for the holiday weekend and since this is probably the last time it will be just us before the baby is born next month and crashes the party, we decided to document it with a little photo shoot. (Thanks, mom, for taking the pictures!) My sisters dogs photo bombed our pictures but they’re cute so they got away with it. While I was there, I also took some maternity pictures for my big sis and her hubby. Check them out below 🙂

I am by no means a professional photographer but for my sister, I’ll pretend to be 🙂 I want to share all of them with you but there are 30 pictures so that would make a very long post. These three are some of my favorites. Isn’t she the cutest pregnant person?!

Tan

By | Uncategorized | 29 Comments

 I spent the weekend lounging in the sun and swimming and look what happened…I got tan! Who knew this pasty pale girl could tan?! Looks like my Portuguese heritage is coming through for me and giving me a tan instead of a burn. (Thank goodness for that!) I know by most peoples standards I’m still really pale but by my standards, I’m one tan chick. It also helps that I’m standing against a white wall.

I think I’ve found my go-to pool party look and this is it…well, and also a bathing suit. You can’t go to pool party without a bathing suit. That would be wrong. I’ve already worn this outfit to two pool parties (these pictures were taken before the second pool party so be prepared to see a tanner Kacie tomorrow). I’ve also worn it to the grocery store and to Starbucks. I think this is not just my go-to pool party dress but my go-to summer dress. When temperatures reach 100+, an easy breezy dress is really the only option.

Seeing Stars

By | Uncategorized | 30 Comments
 Can we all applaud me for planning ahead and getting a 4th of July outfit on the blog? I know pretty much every other blogger out there has done a 4th of July outfit post but sometimes holidays sneak up on me. Not this year… this year I am on top of it! Did you notice I even painted my nails red? If I were super talented, I would have painted flags or fireworks or something like that on my nails. But I can barely keep the polish within the lines as it is so we’re just lucky my nails are the only thing red and not my entire hands.

I hope everyone has a great 4th of July weekend!

DIY Ripped Jeans

My mom was here visiting me for the past few days and we had the best time! We spent a day lounging on the beach in Tahoe, we played tennis, we shopped, we went to the movies to see Maleficent, we shopped some more, we ate ice cream, we watched The Bachelorette, we stayed up until midnight talking, we had fun. But she headed home yesterday and now I’m sad. On a happier note though…
Look at what I convinced my hubby to do! A little DIY distressed denim look to my white jeans! You might remember I told you in this white jeans post, that I was going to try to talk him into distressing my jeans. Well, it took nearly two months of convincing but I finally got him to do it. I was a little nervous at first, especially when I heard a few cuss words flying and then he yelled “I ruined your jeans”. Silly boy, you didn’t ruin my jeans. You made them awesome!
Have you ever tried to DIY your own ripped jeans?

Look what my mama got me! Wedge sneakers! I’ve mentioned on this here blog before that I was born with a foot condition that has gotten worse as I get older and no longer allows me to wear flats. And sometimes it kind of sucks. Don’t get me wrong, I love heels but I also want those days of comfy shoes and casual clothes. Now I can have those days thanks to my mom and these shoes! I think my mom got tired of me calling her upset because me feet hurt and I just want to wear casual shoes, not heels, or my orthotics, or my ugly foot brace. Well, give my mom a problem and she will find a solution. Thanks momma, for my cute new wedge sneakers! I love them and I love you!
And guess what else?! My mom is coming on Monday to visit me for a few days! Yay!

I am the worlds pickiest eater. Ok, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. I once saw on the news that there’s a lady who only eats three foods. I’d say she’s a pickier eater than me but by most peoples standards, I’m picky. I’m trying to be open to new food (except fish and eggs and most veggies…gross!) and each year, I discover a new food I love! Three years ago, I discovered the wonderful avocado. Two years ago, the delicious pineapple. And last year, the not-as-good-as-a-grape-but-still-ok cherry tomato. How did I not discover pineapples before two years ago?! I know my parents tried to get me to like them but I always found them disgusting. Luckily, I have wised up to how yummy pineapples are and I can’t get enough of them. I want them not only in my belly but also on my clothes. All this talk has me hungry for pineapples.

I wore this outfit to Walmart (the town I live in doesn’t have Target…feel bad for me people).  I know, it’s a little dressy for Walmart, or Wally world as my Grandpa calls it, but I have been on the hunt for white track pants for a while and I couldn’t resist wearing them as soon as they arrived. I love that they can be dressed up with a blazer or you can wear them more casually. But let me tell you, white track pants are not the easiest things to find. And when you do find them, they are usually way too see-through. I don’t know about you but I’m not interested in showing off my undies and butt cheeks. It’s not a good look. It’s just not. But hallelujah good god almighty, I found the perfect non-super-see-through-pair! And they’re currently 50% off!
