graduating and christmas

I think it's time for me to update you would think I would have a lot to update you on but I don't think I can think of much let me think.

I graduated (I don't remember if I wrote this but I'm thinking I haven't) I am done with PMTS I still need to test and do all the onther 'fun' things but i am totally done with all of it! we had a cute little graduation ceremony and Bryce's parents sister and little brother came to the graduation and we went to dinner afterwards. I stayed with them for a few days before and the night after graduation and I came to what I thought was going to be sunny california but it has ended up being rainy and cold and cloudy and in some parts snowy, i was thankful my parents had moved to valencia and i didn't have to deal with snow :) !!

Bryce came to california for christmas and i was very happy!! His mom and brothers came down the weekend he was here and we spent the weekend with them and hung out and went to LA and I saw some of chino. Bryce and i kind of just hung out aound the house mot days and did shopping and went out to eat most days. (I'm sorry I didn't have anything fun planned biance). We went to Chino again the weekend after Christmas and spent time with some of Bryce's friends and I got a more in depth tour of where bryce grew up :)
I took bryce to the airport last night and it was sad, but I will be there sooner than I know. The next time I see him will most likely be when I move to Hawaii YAY!!!

but anyway here are a few cute pictures that my mom took fo us yesterday before bryce left...

packing graduating and thinking

That's right I'm writing you another update haha don't get too excited. I know I'm not

It's the week before thanksgiving. this time next week i should be enjoying my purchases (black friday duh) and hanging out with sleeping parents. And the next day I'm trying on wedding dresses (I honestly never thought I would do that) and no we still don't have a date, we're working on it though.

I'm spending this fine friday night packing my room and all the junk that has come my way over the last 2 years. so far i only have 3 boxes and a suitcase going home and the boxes are movies, pictures, and books atleast they all mean something to me. and the suitcase is hair product which will most likely stay in California with mom. that's good! i have 3 boxes for yard sales or DI and I've gotten rid of four bags of trash. You don't realize how much junk you have until your mom tells you everything you take to California you have to ship to Hawaii. and when it costs as much as it does to send stuff to Hawaii and no place to really put it all a lot of stuff that you thought you couldnt live without is suddenly easy to part with.

I also have an exact finishing day with school! thursday december 4th at 10 pm i will have completed 2000 hours of cosmetology! o-m-g!!! i cant believe it is for realsies going to be ending! then it will be craziness for a while.

but anyway I need to sleep tonight i was going to go to bed early but i get too distracted by stuff :) but i did surpass my goal of packing one box so i am extremely proud of myself (yay)

hawaii was fun...

here i am! back from hawaii... :( and that picture is the only picture we took from the whole trip...sad i know but we'll have lots of time to make up for it.

Here's some stuff that we did while together in Hawaii...The haunted lagoon at PCC, went to the temple, went to the beach and discovered i'm biggest wussiest coldest person ever, went the the swap meet, had a costco date, i met bryces friends, got engaged, wait what was that??? haha

yes we got engaged and it was muy bueno!!! it was definitly something bryce wouldve done and I wouldn't have expected anything less. I lufh him!

and I know we'll all be asking for details, so here they are...(a little background first, on one of our first dates bryce made dinner and for dinner we had fajitas...end of story) SO...bryce got home from work and earlier that day he asked me if i wanted to go on a picnic, so when he got home from work he already had dinner packed up and we were off. We went to Laie point, his favorite spot to sit and think and enjoy the water and sun, and we had our picnic of fajitas (he is one smart boy!!) then we started walking around the point and he started telling me about how much he loved me and we were just talking about that, which for us being long distance isn't anything out of the ordinary, then we found a spot and stopped and Bryce mentioned how nice the weather was (it was rainging really hard almost EVERY DAY) and he said he had been praying for good weather. He asked me if I knew why he wanted goo weather and my blonde responses were "So we can play in the sun" and he asked what else and my response was "so we can sit in the sunshine" after a little giggle he said "and so I could do this" and he got down on his knee, how super cute is he?

So, yeah that's our story. We called my parents really quick and I talked to my mom and he called his parents the next morning. Then it worked perfect cause his Aunt Lori found out and spread the word for us haha so that made it easy. I have found that it is a little bit awkward telling people I'm engaged, like how are you supposed to bring up something like that? and it was especially hard today at school because i had to take my ring in to be sized :( haha

So yeah now I get to start planning a wedding and I don't know what I'm supposed to do. Thankfully we've been talking a lot about getting married so there were a lot of ideas that are now "official" haha so that helps

But that would definitly be the biggest update (and were looking at July in LA no exact date" so yeah. splendid!

and i thin at that point I can call it a night. If i think of anything else to update about I will do it within the next 3 weeks (maybe haha)

boredom = pictures :)

so ive decided to use this post to post pictures (im pretty bored haha) but im going to share some of my fave pics because i can :)

Cadie would barely even talk to me before this day but she was absolutely IN LOVE with bryce!! it just makes me so happy that my nieces (some of the most important people in my life) appprove haha
It isn't very common that bryce and i take a picture where both of us have our eyes open, were both smiling, and neither of us are making a wierd face AT ALL

i think this was the last time that my whole family was all together (family= parents and 4 kids) this was 2004Its kind of a big deal meeting john paul dejoria, he really is one of the nicest guys i have ever met, i ended up meeting him once again at the sundance film festival and before he even knew i was a pm student he was super nice

these are my nieces (cadie, ryan, and alyssa) this was the picture they sent out with their christmas cards last year. it makes me so happy and even though theyre being wierd you can still see how pretty they all are
Jacob is my buddy. he thinks my phone is for looking at pictures of jacob and kasey. i always need to keep some on my phone for him and he's actually smiling! this is the picture i show him when he tells me he wants to see "gaycub and kasey"

ill spare you and stop there haha. but yeah.i get to go to hawaii in 12 days! thats so exciting i can hardly stand it! my parents are FINALLY moving into their house and theyll be coming to see AJ while im in hawaii. Im excited for them I know they miss him courtney and jacob lots! well, im off to clean my room (wierd i know)

updates galore

so basically i think i have the best boyfriend EVER...

(a little visual for you guys haha)

i got to school today and i had a package waiting for me (and since i spend all my time at school and 75% of the people at my school know bryce it wasnt that wierd) so i get to the front desk and this is what i have...

He was upset though cause they werent the flowers that he ordered, but i dont care! all the girls at school were jealous and one of the girls even told me to stop talking about bryce cuz not every girl has a boyfriend like him :) thats right suckas haha. i lufh my cwazy pants boyfriend!

but ANYWAY ill stop bragging for a little while. so life has been good lately. I've been working less and going to school more which i actually like. I really like school (not necessarily the same school for an excess of 2 years) but i like the learning part of it. and yes as of september 25 i have been a future professional at paul mitchell the school provo, ut for 2 years. im beginning to wonder what future theyre talking about man oh man. but the end is in sight!! YAY!!

I got a letter from shawna the other day (see last post haha) but she wrote me from the mtc and i honestly dont think i have ever seen (although i dont really see her) shawna so happy! she loves the mtc and is super happy so im REALLY excited for her now! and now everytime i drive by the mtc i wave haha yes im that much of a nerd. I will even drive past there now on purpose on my way to school, its not out of the way it just takes a few minutes longer, but with that way i even get to drive by the temple. so awesome possom!!

basically thats the update on my life and since its after midnight i will be in hawaii in 22 days and be with bryce oh happy day! and i think my parents are coming up here the week before i am way excited, i just need to get a halloween costume now..hmmm

saying farewell

my dear friend shawna (chawna poo) is now hermana orlando (thank you for enlightening me with that kk it was much enjoyed) she reports to the provo mtc tomorrow at 12:30. it's so wierd to me, i know that since we've both moved we haven't seen or talked a whole lot but im going to miss her like crazy. Shawna is a great friend and I love her to death. So basically a few friends from california went out to dinner and had fun catching up and then Shawna KK and erin came over and we had ice cream sundaes mmm (i need to throw dessert parties) Shawana and kari got their hair cut and we all just hung out and relaxed and talked!

Today ended up being a pretty nice day from from Colorado. I didn't go into school so I could see Shawna so my day was 4 hours of work plus cleaning and baking and shopping and hanging out and having fun! i actually got to be outside for a little while in the sun which doesn't happen a whole lot for me right now. I thought I'd get to spend some time in the sun in colorado, but boy was i wrong. not until after I got there to the cold wet weather did bryce explain to me its called colorful colorado, because of the weather, but the day I left it was super nice outside, but I got stuck in the airport for 8 hours! wtf mate, right? it was still a nice mini vacation (i get another one in 38 days haha, bryce is right I do take too many vacations haha)

EXCITING NEWS!!! i got a text email thing from AJ the other day. he will be back in utah at hill air force base on monday night the 22nd! he only had a short deployment (5.5 months) but it still seems like a long time when courtney is alone and Jacob does ask for dad. I didn't want to intrude so I didn't invite myself to welcome him home, but Courtney called me and told me I could come. I am so excited. It will be Courtney Jacob and me I think. me and AJ have never been too close but I think with him going and me helping take care of his family we have gotten closer to eachother. He'll be home until he leaves again for Oklahoma on Halloween but it will be nice to have him home for a little while.

Well it is now time for me to get in the shower and get ready for bed before the boyfriend calls me back! (i lufh him!)

school and fishies

im wondering why i dont ever clean my room? haha

so this is kind of exciting, and it hasnt happened yet (well part of it has ii guess) so today I officially have 1495 hours at school! that means tomorrow i have 1500! thats a big step. only 500 hours to go and everyone tells me the last 500 hours go by fast cause there a lot of paperwork and testing that you have to do. 2008 will definitly end with a bang! i started school almost 2 years ago...okay 23 months ago haha. but it feels like high school, like the length of it, not necessarily the drama. i am so ready to move on.

I decided I want some fish haha I havent gotten them yet tho. I think I'm gonna get two so they can be boyfriend and girlfriend ;-) *wink* theyll actually be more like husband and wife since theyre living together haha. I already know I'm naming the girl fish Ashtin (I know its a boy name...but what do you think kasey is? im allowed to do that to a fish since Bryce wont let me name a daughter that) but what about her husband? I had an idea the other day but of course I can't remember, I just remembered that I really liked it haha. any ideas? and they need a last name (i have too much brain time on my hands haha)

I really feel like baking but I'm way too tired too...lame-o maybe tomorrow.

I think someone should send me one of those dumb questionares and tell me I have to do it so I stop babbling about dumb stuff!! shawna help me out

ooo speaking of shawna!! i get to see her in about a month YAY! sa tho that I wont see her again for like 18 months :( who wants to take a vacation to Peru with me?? por favor? she told me today what days she thinks shes coming (and kk so you know I told her you two could stay here...but itll cost know what im asking for haha) oh man September is going to be exciting! one of our friends growing up is getting married and sadly i decided not to go id rather finish school. the shawna is coming to see me and shes going on a mission!! and aj is getting home!!!!! it d0esnt even seem like hes been gone very long, but I know to courtney and jacob its been a lifetime. and that means my fam will come up to see him YAY!!

someone needs to give me something to write about...thanks!!!

Wednesday, August 6, 2008

in n out post its

once again it's almost midnight and I am blogginf instead of cleaning my room...or finishing the last 50 pages of "breaking dawn" but knowing me ill stay up even later to finish it even though I'm falling asleep while typing this and listening to Jack Johson. I don't think I should listen to something so calm when I'm trying to stay awake. I have been exhausted lately, i dont know why i stay up haha. I did get to do my grocery shopping 10:30 at bueno.

Sorry I dont have much to write about I probably bore you as much as I am bored. I could tell you about my client yesterday! I got to chop like 8 inches of hair off!!! that feels so good haha. and I could tell you about my client tonight...oh wait she didnt show up...lame-o. Andrea moved out and now I am in my 3 bedroom apartment all by myself...its like having a house all to myself. With half the appliances and dishes and no tv so no reason to sit in the living room when I get sit in my room (which I can do with room mates). I did finally get my car back and I have to take it back in, theyre retards and Im frustrated with them, it was so much easier when mom and dad took care of all that and took the car in and all that jazz (I should watch chicago)

Speaking of chicage haha I am in the mood to watch the most random movies...Teenage mutant ninja turtles, back to the future, edward scissorhands, romeo and juliet, little miss sunshine and more. I should call in sick and watch movies on the computer in bed all day haha I wish!

ooo I dont know if I said this before but Randi found out what shes having...a girl!!! number 4 haha poor kids want a boy but no such luck. I asked her to name the baby Brooklyn or Brooke lynn...kind of wierd story so i wont embarass myself haha. But she said no to that BUT we thnk they decided on Peyton know like Peyton Sawyer on One tree hill! yup thats right. In that case I should have a whole cast of characters in my family...merdith, mcdreamy, lucas, nathan, brooke, mcsteamy, rachel, ross...i could just mix them up like that haha!! Im lame this is what happens when you dont have much to do while sitting after doing what you need to do (did that make sense) and you also get in n out post its posted all over the desk with pointless reminders, like the fact that wicked will be in salt lake city in april...but wait Ill be moving to Hawaii in January...pointless haha.

My brain is a complete mess right now I hope you can understand everything and understand it means nothing...OH except!!! I emailed the owner of my school the other day to get information on working in the Hawaii school and the Hawaii school emailed me back and basically told me when I move out there I can have a job! that will be so nice...but yeah other than that nothing too much is going on that is exciting haha

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

mr brightside...?

its almost midnight and i dont know why im up...maybe you could tell me haha

i went back to work and school today...lame. Everytime i take some sort of a break from that i always feeling like quitting my job and exiting school (you know a real beauty school drop out...there are a lot of them) and head back to california and hang out with the rents and work some lame job for a while. theres that option or running off to hawaii and being homeless cause thats probably what would happen to me. sidenote kind of: spencer and i made a deal that if either of us were about to lose everything we would sell what we had to have enough money for a one way ticket to hawaii and be homeless on the beach there in waikiki. its always warm and you can easily get a lame job there. anyway...

work is super boring...having a total of 3 customers in 7 hours does not help on a boring day. especially when i didnt take my book cause i thought a big boss would be dropping in today, but after all the hard work getting the store ready, she decided she didnt want to come.

school was better, i wasnt there by myself so i got to talk to people, and i even had 2 haircuts, always appreciated! and i got to have dirty stans (greasy hamburger joint). tomorrow i get to do it all over again, except we have class for the first 2.5 hours, i dont know if ill be able to sit for that long. and then probably no haircut or maybe a scalp treatment for kasey? sounds bueno

ive decided with the help of bryce that i really want a psp or pink nintendo ds haha. id play the lame girl games!

oh and my car still isnt fixed...i wanna sell it but i think my dads telling me no, i dont know what hes trying to tell me to do.

but yeah i guess itll all be figured out sometime...because it definitly needs to be figured out.

oh and really bothers me when people get what i want haha end of story done and done

as per shawnas request

an update, as per shawnas request. A lot of stuff has definitly happened. fourth of july was so exciting! every year provo does stadium of fire, a concert and a fireworks show at the BYU football stadium. this year was the blue man group and miley cyrus! they do this really cool thing too, for a lot of the families of deployed military they basically give them tickets, they actually had the families walk out on to the field with signs and stuff and they were supposed to be broadcasting the whole thing in iraq but aj didnt get to see :( my nephew was even super cute (i still need the pictures theyll be here sometime) but it was a very fun fourth!

THEN saturday the fifth the boyfriend came! i got to the airport on time and didnt get too lost so it was good haha. on our way back to provo my car broke...yes broke. and not like a kasey broke like the broken lock, like the car stopped running, sad! but luckily courtney was waiting for us to get back so i was able to call her and she could help us out. we finally got it taken care of and made it to bryces parents in saratoga spring and just hung out for a while. thats actually what weve been doing a lot of, hanging out. we got to go out to eat for bryces 23rd birthday and hang ot with his family and some friends, it was good.

now here i am on a thursday night bryce is camping and im just hanging out carless watching the girls next door. tomorrow i get to go to the water park with courtney and jacob and i am so excited. jacob makes me laugh so hard and he just makes me so happy, i think hes the cutest kid ive ever seen evver!!

but yeah so theres a quick update and a lot of nonsense. there will definitly be more to come its basically the story of my life haha.

numba 2

so here I am again getting paid to blog...i should go pro haha. atleast I'm getting paid for more than sitting on my butt, without this that's all I'd be doing. I have things that need to be done but I can't do it, I have to help all the ZERO customers that have come in today (not even a customers so far). I've been at work for an hour and a half and I finished my book (haunted...we'll get to that later) and I am just about done with my july schedule I know what I'm doing almost every day in july sad. off subject I'm craving a slurpee and have been like everyday now that its warm. but anyway back to what I was talking about which isn't really anything. but we can talk about haunted. chuck palahniuk wrote this, he's written other books that I've read as well ie fight club (if ur a fan of the movie read the book!) and I've also read invisible monsters. I know his books are kind of dark I guess u could say. but this book was sickening. there were times I think I got a little queezy, wierd. everyone told me it was rally good but they never knew quite how to explain what it was about. and now that I've read it I can't explain it either. although it was disturbing I still couldn't put it down. but I'm done now...any new book suggestions?

another new subject...ill just update all the happenings. so andrea is getting married on saturday! tonight we are having her shower and I have cupcakes that need to be frosted and sprinkled, I need to go buy a dress that will be returned next week and I have to buy new shoes (shoes can't be returned haha) so this is all going on and my mom is going to be here friday night!! I am so excited to see her...its going to be short but still so much fun! then as of today bryce gets here to visit and take care of me in 17 days oh man I am way too excited about that haha.

but enough mumbo jumbo for today ill have to think of something better to write about (like the word blog haha ily bryce)

Thursday, June 5, 2008


so here I first blog here...i am a virgin blogger, and I'm doing this at work and being paid...what a way to go right? I don't have any exciting news or events to really write about, I'm sure it wouldn't keep u entertained all day anyway. but bryce, this does feel good haha. until I know what I'm going to write this is just going to be me babbling on in no direction at all probably just useless information like the fact that I'm wearing new shoes today and it makes me happy and I get to go buy some items of clothing today *cough cough* that's exciting! today is a good day...period
