I am blank because...

I got this idea from the beautiful Little Miss Momma...I am blank because....

I am weird because...


I hate smells of any kind.
I like eating jelly on sandwiches instead of mayo or mustard.
I havent cut my hair in years because I want it to be long so bad.
I am afraid of rollercoasters.
I make s'mores in the microwave.
I love to be pursued.


I am a bad friend because...


I never return phonecalls or texts. 
I am a homebody.
I am forgetful.
I am bad at writing thank you cards.


I am a good friend because...


I would do anything for any of my best friends at any moment.
I want all my friends to succeed.
I know what it means to give and love well.
I am trustworthy.
I am loyal.


I am sad because...


I can't please everyone.
Some days I just feel like I am failing.
I want a baby.
I want back the baby we lost.


I am happy because...


My marriage is better than ever.
I have started cooking a little more.
My kids are amazing.
Our studio is blessing little kiddos. 
I have a fire lit, chili on the stove, Christmas tree decorated and Christmas music playing.


I am excited for...


Christmas decorating.
A Little Artsy growing.
Date Nights.
Family Snuggle time.
New art shows.
Baby kisses.
New projects.
A New Year.

  6. OH, one more thing!

    I completely understand the long hair thing. Mine is finally growing after years of breakage due to using a relaxer. Now that I've gone natural, my hair is long and wild and I love it (most of the time).

    ReplyDelete
  13. :) love this and you!
    And I am 100% the same way about texts/phone calls, thankyou notes and being a homebody.
    So please don't ever feel bad for not texting back... and don't be offended if I don't text back for days... just know I love you haha!
    LOVE YOU :)

  14. There's nothing wrong with s'mores in the microwave!

  15. This is the third post like this I've read. Planning on doing one like this tomorrow.

    I'm sure you'll have another baby because God knows your desire...and he has your precious baby in heaven with Him...so one day you'll see that baby to!

    Love to you!

  16. Casey, I understand how you're feeling on the sad parts... our bank account has been negative for about two weeks now and we have like one diaper and maybe a couple dollars to our name. Totally sucks, but God is using this season to cause us to become more and more dependent upon Him, to have open hands to both give and to receive... the giving part is so important even when we lack. Much love to you.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love it! :)
    Our account is negative too. It's a horrible cycle because you have to pay all those fees. I'll be praying for you!

  21. you are so sweet case. your heart is just so big and you inspire me to live better.

    i strongly dislike asking for prayers, but could you say one or two for me and my little family? i received some very difficult news earlier this week about my health. trying to stay positive and soak up the moments with my girl.

    love&light.

  23. Loved this! I am doing this same post too! I love her blog and yours for that matter!

    It's so hard to please everyone and that is something that always brings me down too. We need to remember that we cannot do everything. We cannot be there for everyone at every moment. We are amazing though! :) Don't forget it...you can see it with every smile you get from your sweet hubby and adorable babies! :)

  24. praying for you mamas. thanks for sharing as always. you are so beautiful inside & out!

    you are such a faithful daughter & just continue to live each day & moment in his will & he will provide for you!!!!

    XO

  25. mmm I adore this post. You are so beautiful. I want to just pray right now that the LORD would bless your finances and that you would just give and surrender every dollar to HIS WILL and HIS PURPOSE for your life. And I just ask that HE would bless you with more children and bless you with HIS healing and HIS strength through these trials... :) Your beautiful.

  26. I absolutely love this idea. And if you're a bad friend... I totally am, too, because I'm HORRIBLE at returning calls and texts!! And remember - it's all on God's time. Everything will be okay.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great post!
    I can relate to a lot of it but for sure to the "bad friend section". I'm so guilty of all of them :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great post Casey! You know I love any version of the "I Am" poem :) Hope to read more!

  29. I am excited for upcoming date nights too. Maybe even a day date with the extra time we have this week to spend with one another :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. This was a really sweet post. I can definitely relate to a lot of your points.. and yeah, I am so terrible at responding to phone calls, too.

    One random note, not at all a judgement, but more of a 'i've been in your shoes'. If you cut your hair more frequently it will actually grow faster. I never would have guessed, but apparently because if we don't cut it, it gets split ends and stops growing (or something like that). Here's to long hair! :-)

  31. I am a bad friend and a good friend for the same reasons that you are.

    I get upset that I cannot please everyone as well. It really hurt my heart when you said "I am sad because I want the baby back we lost". That has to be so hard.

    I love that you ended with things you are excited for though <3

    Happy Monday :)

  32. Hello Kindred Spirit,

    Although my husband and I didn't lose a precious baby, we are unable to conceive. But God has lovingly softened the sting of that fact through prayer (and a lot of tears). I don't know why God allows certain things to happen but it appears He has surrounded you with such a warm and gentle family. All the best to you,

    Sharon
    P.S. Love not only your post but your beautiful blog, I would love to incorporate this idea as well.

  33. I am so happy you are having such a blessed time - enjoy! All that gratitude will give way to karma and even more blessings than you could ever dream.

  34. great job! I find it hard to think of some of these things: about myself.

    I'm still working on my list and hope to complete it soon :)

    -Great job!

  35. LOVE this!! I might have to borrow this idea for a post, too!! ;)

  39. So I may not be able to comment as much as I'd like...but every single post on blog your blog I have read. Every day you give me a little inspiration and I love hearing your story. Also, nothing is better than a decorated Christmas tree, Christmas music, and family. I cannot wait to decorate ours this week! Happy MONDAY

  47. Christmas decorations already? Woah, look at you!

  48. I really like this idea. Thanks for your openness and honesty.

  49. I can really appreciate your open-ness here on the internet. It's very refreshing. I can relate (being married a little over a year and broke haha and being a struggling artist), but I've come to realize that, we struggle, we make it and we enjoy the small moments that are good and make it all worth while even if it is horribly frustrating.
    My two cents...

  53. Just wanted you to know that I'll be praying for you. We don't know each other, but even so you're on my mind & in my heart. Hold tight to your family & your faith.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love that you said "Our bank account is negative.again." because I feel like so many people strive to put on facades when really, if we were all honest, we'd find that we're all in the same situations. Bravo on your honesty! And I really like this idea. I may just have to do one too :)
