If I Could Turn Back Time [52 Weeks]

I am playing catch up since I was so behind on last weeks post. 

I am linking up with Becky over at From Mrs. To Mama for this week's topic. 

If I could turn back time, I would do everything exactly as I have done it already. I love how my life turned out, and I would be so afraid that one small thing could change everything. I am so blessed beyond measure, and I don't take that for granted. The only thing I might do is tell the younger version of myself that life, life is amazing and I have an amazing husband, and I could not as for more. 
I love my life as it is. I wouldn't change a thing

August = Autumn Right?!?!?!?

Oh 2013, why are you in such a rush?? Because I want to go on my cruise? Oh okay, no big deal. Rush away. 

Some of you may not agree with the above statement, but I personally am 100% okay with 2013 rushing by. As long as we get to October 19 and just move at a snail pace for the next week. But today is July 30th. That means just one more day of having my 4th of July decorations up and then it is acceptable to break out my fall decorations. At least in my mind it is. :) 

I have already changed all my Scentsy wax to some yummy smelling fall scents. Apple Press has got to be a favorite of mine!! I can't wait until September when the new scents come out! Can we say Carmel Pear Crisp, Mandarin Moon, Huckleberry Sage, and Pumpkin Marshmallow!! 

Anyway, August brings on the busy season for C and I. August is planned out where we do not have a free weekend. August 3rd is C's 24th birthday which we have plans on celebrating while camping, but since C smashed up his finger pretty bad at work today, that may not happen because rock climbing and caving would be out of the question. So we may just camp in the back yard and have a cookout complete with ribs and key lime pie for his birthday. 

August 4th also brings around our furbaby's Birthday Rescue-day! Since we don't know when her actual birthday is, we are celebrating the day she rescued us as her birthday. Plans of yummy homemade doggie treats, some Frosty Paws, and a trip to the park look like they will take place to celebrate a wonderful fur filled year with that sweet little puppy. 

The rest of August is filled with wedding showers, a 30th birthday party for a dear friend, and ending with a bachelorette/sister weekend. 

September is less busy, but oh so fun. The first weekend is my birthday weekend AND my sister's wedding weekend!! Her getting married is the best birthday present ever! I am so glad that they are getting married the day after my birthday!!! That means I will never forget it! 

The next 2 weekends in September will be free weekends. That means celebrating my birthday, and probably make-up camping if we miss it this weekend. It also means doing some hard core cleaning since we will be so busy from the last weekend in September until we get back from our cruise. 

The last weekend in September means the start of a lot of traveling. We will head to Ellijay for apples, Gatlinburg for a family weekend trip, and to the Occoee for some rafting, not in that order though. Then once we are done with all that traveling, we get to travel to FL for our cruise!!! I am so excited!! I can hardly contain myself. I have gotten us checked in online with the exception of entering our passport information. I have a map printed out on how to get to the hotel, and how to get from the hotel to the port. I have a list started on what all we need packed, and I have even gone as far as taking up our guest room and turning it into a huge packing area. 

Obviously once the cruise is done, it is Halloween, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Christmas Saturday that will be making appearances! This is my favorite half of the year! 

Chaco on the day we got her!! She was so little back then! 

Some of my fall decorations from last year. they are going to look very similar this year, just with better carpet and a more appealing wall color. :)

What is your favorite time of year?
Are you looking forward to fall as much as me?
Are you taking any vacations this fall?

If I Could Be Anything In The World [52 Weeks]

To say I am slacking is a huge understatement. My weekend was filled with about a thousand home improvement projects, and none of them were worth blogging about, well at least not yet. 

In true Cait fashion, I am running behind on posting as usual, but I really wanted to make sure I did this post. 

If I could be anything in the world...

I am already a wife to an amazing man. God sure did give me more than I deserve when He gave me C. I love being a wife. I love coming home to my best friend. I love that life is an endless sleep over party with my best friend. He is simply amazing, and being married to him is such a blessing. So being a wife was marked off the list back in October of 2010.

So, if I could be anything in the world, what would I be?

Simple. A mom.

Some of you might be scratching you heads, others, not so much. There are about a billion things I want to do, but if I never do them, I will be okay. Those things aren't things that will define me as much as being a mom will. I want to be a mom. If I had to give up everything so that C and I could be a family, I would. I know he wants to be a dad too. I want to go back to school to finish my degree and hopefully go after the career I want, but I would give that up in a heartbeat if I had to choose between my dream career and being a mom. Yes, I am young. So many people seem to want to point that out to me. They tell me to wait until I have really lived life to have kids. They tell me that I need to wait until C and I have been married for 5 years or more to have kids. I hate when people do that, don't you? They think they know what is best for you, but they don't really even know you.

C and I have had the talk about kids, and we have put it in God's hands. When God feels it is the time for us to have kids, then it will happen. For any family that reads this, let me just say now, no, C and I are not trying for a baby. That isn't what this is about. C and I want kids, but only in God's timing.

If you asked me 5 years ago why I was put on earth, the answer would have been, "to be a mom."
Now, the answer is, "to be C's wife and a mother to his children."

If I could be anything, it would be to be a mom.

Throwback Thursday

With our cruise quickly approaching, I finally decided to start getting ready. Go ahead and ask. "Cait, do you really need 87 days to get ready and pack for a cruise??" The answer is simple. Yes. 

Let me explain. I am currently on a fitness journey and that means that I am losing weight and inches. I already had to get rid of everything I wore last year in the summer because it doesn't fit, and with the stuff I bought at the beginning of the summer slowly getting looser and looser, that means that in the short 87 days, it may not fit...What then?? Going naked just isn't an option. 

Other than worrying that I won't have anything to wear, I am a planner by nature. I want to have as much planned as possible so I know what is going on. So I am planning out travel plans like when we will leave the house, how long it will take us to get to the hotel, when we will leave the hotel, all that fun stuff. And sad part about all that travel planning is I know that none of it will happen. I know that we will leave the house later than we wanted, and I know that we will leave the hotel at the last minute. Everything just happens that way. 

But I am also doing what I can to pack smarter, and lighter. I remember our cruise that we went on in January and I remember a) we left our hanging bag at home and had to turn around to get it, and b) I over packed by a lot. So I am trying to make sure that I pack as smart and light as I can. So I have started the process of planning outfits for each day. Now I know that I won't wear them on their specific day, but I would rather be safe and have them at least planned out. Currently our guest room is being taken over by my cruise packing stuff. I just really don't want to forget anything. 

So I have bought myself an adorable black maxi for the first dinner, and I bought C 2 ties because I couldn't decide which I liked.  


And since it is Throwback Thursday, here are some pictures from previous cruises. :)

I'm going to start a packing list post soon. :)

Oh man...

I haven't blogged in a while, and to honest I don't have much to say now. I know. I am such a bad blogger, but I never said I was any good at this. :( 

The only news I have is that we ordered bridesmaids dresses for my sisters wedding!! I am super excited about that!! 

And I have started a 30 day challenge to help motivate me in working out. I'm headed to the gym after work. :) 

And lastly, our cruise is just 88 days away!!

If I won the Lottery...

I'm late as usual for this link up with Becky. I figure by now everyone knows I am running a few days behind. 

This week's topic is If I won the lottery, 5 things I would buy.

Well, how about this, I'd take the cash option because heaven knows I probably wouldn't get it all if I got it in payments, but that is an topic for another day.

I'd first give back. I would tithe 10% like I am called to do. From there, I would do what I could to be a good steward of the money God had blessed me with. 

Depending on how much I actually won, I would do several things. 

After tithing, I would pay off all mine and C's debt and put money in savings, I would pay off my parent's debt, and then I would put money back for each of my siblings. I wouldn't give it to them immediately, but I would give each of the the same amount, and when they turned a certain age, they could get the money. 

Next, I would probably buy the house C and I are currently living in, and then start to scope out and find a good chunk of land and purchase it. Then I would start to design my dream home and we would build. We would do most of the work ourselves too because I have always wanted to actually build a house. Sure we would contract out for a few things, but we would do a lot ourselves. 

I'd then start a savings fund for our future children. You know, to cover college and all that jazz. I would just have one account, but I would start saving for 3 kids. I am pretty sure C and I only want 2, but you never know what will happen. 

After tithing, paying off debt, giving to my siblings, buying a house and land, and starting a savings fund for my future children, I would probably invest in something, but this post is about what I would buy, so for the sake of the topic, I am going to finish off my list as things I would buy.

1. I would buy a new car for C. Or many the parts that C needs to restore the car he was trying to restore when we started dating. 
2. I would buy me a "fun" car. I travel 60-80 miles a day for work, so my Scion tC is going to always be my work car. So I would buy me a fun car that I could drive on the weekends or whenever I am not driving to work. I might go with a BMW, or maybe the new Scion FRS, who knows. I'd pay it all up front though.
3.I would buy all the stuff C and I need to finish fixing up the house that we are living in now. And probably hire someone to fix the back yard. 
4. I would buy all the stuff C and I have talked about buying - Rogue fitness equipment (for a garage gym), all our camping and rock climbing gear, new furniture for both inside and out, and stuff to start making wine.  
5. I'd hire a travel planner and plan vacations for C and I to take. You know, to London, Paris, Hawaii, and several other places. 

Would I quit my job? Well seeing as how I work for my dad, I would still work, but I would be taking more vacations. I actually love my job. I still want to own a health and fitness center one day, but for now I love my job, and I wouldn't leave. 

I wouldn't buy things right off the bat other than a house, instead I would save and invest and give back. I would take some money and have it for C and I to go back to college. Buying things isn't on top of my list of things to do if I won the lottery, but you know what they say. You have to play to win, and we don't play.

I'm Gonna Make This Place Your Home

Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you're not alone
Cause I'm gonna make this place your home

Anyone else know that song? Phillip Phillips must have had C and I in mind with that song. I have been listening to music all day, and that song has just really touched my heart today. Let me explain. 

C and I met in high school. At that point in time, he had lived in the same house he always had, the house he helped his parents build. I had moved from the great city of Chattanooga to a little bitty town in GA. C and I dated in high school, and we fell in love. Things happen, and we ended up going our different ways. Fast forward a few years, and we meet up again. I had moved back to TN, then back to GA, then out of my mom's house and in with friends, and then back into my mom's house. Are you keeping up?? That is a total of 5 moves for me. C had moved with his family into a different home not far from where they were living before. That is 1 move for him. Obviously by this time I should be a professional mover...

We dated, got engaged, and C moved back into his childhood home. Cait = 5 C = 2. When C and I got married, the job I had before the wedding, well I had issues with it and time off wasn't granted, and long story short, I put in my notice. Basically, I was getting ready to go into a marriage with no job, and my soon to be husband working as a mechanic not making enough to support us both. Que the stress. We got married, I moved in with him, and I enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon, and when we got back, I talked to my dad, and it worked out that I was going to work for him. The plan was only to work for him for about a year or less, but more on that later. So I had been married for about a week and a half, and I packed up my stuff and headed back to TN for a few days to work. As November and December went by, I was leaving for longer periods of time. I was gone a whole week once. Leaving is not something I wanted to do, but I had to. I had to help contribute to our family of 2. Fast forward to mid January, and I had manage to convince C to move to Chattanooga. I asked him to just give me 3 years. That way I would have gotten enough experience in a job and it would be easier to find a job that transferred skill wise. After a lot of begging and pleading, I got C to say yes. I went up to TN, and C followed a few days later to look for a job. That Wednesday, he headed back to GA with 3 job offers. He put in his 2 week notice, and by the first of February, we were in TN for the next 3 years. We literally up and left. We had 2 weeks to pack up everything we were going to need, and get to TN so he could start his new job and I could work more for my dad. We moved in with my dad since it was such a fast move. Cait = 7 C = 3. 

C was homesick a lot at first. I remember telling him over and over again that I knew if he just gave Chatty a chance he would love living here. But we were going back to GA almost every weekend. He wanted to be "home." I didn't complain, but I kept reminding him that he promised me 3 years in TN. At one point he was almost begging me to move back. He missed GA, and I don't blame him, but I stuck to my guns and I told him to just give Chattanooga a chance. Soon, a year had past and we were moving out of my dad's house and into an apartment. Cait = 8 C = 4. 

Those 6 months in the apartment I think are what sealed the deal on Chatty for C. Those 6 months he gave Chattanooga a chance, and I think he fell in love. In September, we moved out of the apartments and back into my dad's house since he had moved out because he got married. Cait = 9 C = 5.

C will now say that he is not going back to GA. If something horrible were to happen and we ended up not together, C would actually stay in Chattanooga. We love this place and I am proud to say that we both now call this "home". I remember telling him that he would fall in love with this place, and I was right. He did. 

Chattanooga is our home, and where we plan to grow old together. We plan on raising our children here. It is a wonderful city and I am glad that I loved this place enough for the both of us when he didn't love it. Since C and I have been together, he has moved twice as much as he had before he and I were together. I sometimes feel bad because I feel like I made him move around too much. I feel like I pressure him to come to Chattanooga, but at the time we both knew it was what was best for us. 

I told you that working for my dad was only the plan for the year right? Well I am quickly approaching my 3 year wedding anniversary, along with my 3 year anniversary of working for my dad. C has been at the same job since we moved here. We are happy here. We are happy with the jobs we have. And for those that are skeptical, I have earned my job with my dad. I take pride in my job. I am an employee just like the other employees we have and if I don't do my job or if I take advantage of the fact that my boss is my dad, I will be let go. I am not always guaranteed this job and I am happy about that because it means I have to continue to earn my place in the company. 

If you had told me after I had graduated high school that I was going to be married to C, that I would be living in Chattanooga, and that I would be working for my dad, I would have probably laughed at you. I fell in love with C in high school, but after we went our different ways, I never imagined that we would end up together. And I never imagined that I would be working for my dad. I did however imagine that I would be living in Chattanooga. I love how unexpected life is. 

Moving to Chattanooga was hard for us. We left family and friends to go live where we just knew my dad and my now step mom and her kids. We knew no one. Since moving here, I we have made friends that live 2 hours away, and that is about it. So knowing that we don't have friends that are physically close to us has made us rely on each other even more. Through making Chattanooga "home" for C, and relying on each other, I can honestly say that this time has been the best of my life. I am so blessed beyond measure!! 

Today's post is a little random yes, but it has been on my mind a lot lately and it has been nice to share. Thanks for putting up with my rambling if you are still reading this. You deserve a cupcake! :)

New Kicks and Drum Sticks - Weekend Shenanigans

So this weekend was the first weekend we have had in a long time where C and I didn't have to do anything. It was nice. Sure there was tons of stuff to actually do, but we had no requirements on what had to be done by Sunday night. So enjoy the weekend is what we did. 

Saturday consisted of sleeping in late, and doing some really random cleaning around the house. Like we half cleaned the kitchen, we cleaned the hall bath and the master bath, I did a ton of laundry and we took out the trash. Did I clean the living room? No. In fact I might have made it worse. I now have twice as many towels sitting in my chair in the living room since I finally did laundry. One of these days I will actually put the towels in their respective bathrooms. We also were a little lazy and sat around watching NCIS. 

Sunday Funday! Again with no requirements, we made breakfast, and I somehow convinced C to make me Christmas biscuits. They  were supposed to look like gingerbread, but they look more like little people. Next time, I vote we use the Christmas tree cookie cutter...

After breakfast, more random cleaning, more laundry, and more NCIS, we headed out to the mall. I am going to start running this week, so I needed to get some new running kicks. :) While we were out, C wanted to go to a music store, and sure enough, he walked out with a new set of drum sticks. C was in marching band in high school on the drum line. It has been quite a while since he has picked up a set of drumsticks. When we got home, the drum pad and sticks came out, and he spent the evening enjoying the new toy. Fine by me. Maybe this will get him off of the "I want to set off fireworks" kick he has been on. Oh there is never a dull moment with him, and I love it. 

These weren't the color I wanted originally, but when we went into Foot Locker, I fell in love and ended up walking out with them. Now I just hope my feet like running in them. 

We ended the night by going to the movies and watching The Internship. A little vulgar at times, but it was pretty darn funny if you ask me. And as a little bonus, C decided to stop and get some ice cream on the way home. He sure does know that I can't turn down a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream. :)

Next weekend is a sister weekend, then the last weekend in July, we are having some friends come over for a little Christmas In July party. I told you guys I would do it! 

How was your weekend??

Must do things in Chattanooga in the Summertime - #TNbloggers Link-up

I've already posted today, but I stumbled upon this and just HAD to participate!! Ya'll know I love my hometown of Chattanooga, TN so this week's post is just perfect for me. Special thanks to Laura and Sarah for hosting this link-up!
Must do things in Chattanooga in the summertime. Even my least favorite season can't change the love I have for Chattanooga!! First off, it isn't really summertime until Riverbend!! Thousands of your closest friends shoved down on the riverfront listening to music. It is hot, smelly, crowded, and my favorite part about summer. The pins being as cheap as they are make it worth it to go. My opinion, get box seats for the nights you really want to see who is playing. They aren't that much more and they make the concert that much more enjoyable.
As always, other great things to do are to have a picnic at Riverpark, ride the carousel at  Colidge Park, take an evening stroll across the Walnut street bridge, and eat at Tony's, then go for dessert and coffee at Rembrandt's. Personally the Bluff View Art District is probably my favorite place in Chattanooga. And while you are at it, don't forget about going to see a Lookouts game.
Other great attractions here include Rock CityRuby FallsThe Incline RailwayThe Chattanooga ZooTennessee Aquarium, and  The Creative Discovery Museum to name a few. And I almost forgot...Movies in the Park is put on in July by First Things First. It is free, so if you are in the area on one of the nights, check it out! (Hint : Tomorrow's movie (7/13/2013), I think it is Elf!! Perfect if you are a Christmas lover like me!!) 
Major attractions not your thing? This area has excellent rock climbing, hiking, camping, and plenty of places for other outdoor fun (paddle boarding, kayaking, etc)!
So there you have it. Visit Chatty for a fun filled trip. There is something for everyone here! Tons of things to do here, I haven't mentioned. Look at Chattanooga Fun to help plan your visit!!

Thanks again to the lades who put on this link up!!

My Biggest Weakness [52 weeks]

Again I am linking up with Becky over at From Mrs. to Mama. This week's topic is "my biggest weakness"

So where to start? I would have to say my biggest weakness is not knowing when to call it quits. Sound a little funny? Let me explain. My God given talent is that I am a very caring person. If you remember, I mentioned it here. And because I care so much, sometimes I don't know when to call it quits. 

I have had friends in the past walk all over me and use me, and guess what, I kept letting them because I cared about them, and I hoped that because I cared enough about them that they would eventually stop. That never happen. I let this go on for a long time until things actually got quite out of hand before I called it quits on letting them treat me that way. Now there were several people in this situation, but I am only referring to a few that I haven't spoken to since. Do I hate that time in my life? No. Do I regret letting them walk all over me? No. I have learned never to regret things, and at that time we were all young and careless so it poses no problem with me now. I still deeply care about each and everyone of them and want the absolute best for them. In fact if they called me up right now, I would talk to them as if none of this had ever happened and that is because in my mind, the past is the past, and I have moved on. 

Another time, the place I worked at, well I knew I was being tricked and I was being backed into a corner where I knew they would turn things around on me and tell me they have to let me go because of the things they asked me to do. Doesn't seem right does it? Nope. But in the end, I ended up leaving first, but only because I had a much better opportunity. There is no doubt in my mind that if I had not left on my own I would have stayed until they asked me to leave. 

Now, that is just a few examples. I have several others like this, but what it boils down to is sometimes I don't know when to call it quits on a relationship, work, etc. I care what other people think, how others feel, etc and I want to make sure I do everything I can to make sure everyone is happy and taken care of, and well, I am slowly learning that I can't please everyone, and that sometimes caring for someone means letting them struggle. It is a hard thing to learn...

My Weekend Update...on Thursday...

So this past weekend was full of fun, friends and laughs.  C and my weekend started out a day early thanks to 4th of July.  C and I had decided a while back that if he has off that we would spend the day in Gatlinburg.  And that we the traffic...all day.  Bad idea to drive up there?  I think so.  After we finally got out of that mess, we drove on down to a dear friend's house.  You can read her blog here.  It was her middle child's birthday, so C and I had to stop and make sure to get presents.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute right?  We did get to go see Despicable Me 2 with the kids, and let me tell you, you HAVE to go see this movie.  It is hysterical!  The rain kinda "rained on our parade" so we didn't get to swim, but we did get to see C shoot off fireworks.  They were great, even if he did shoot some AT us...  We hated leaving, but as the weekend ended we knew we had to get back home so we could be ready for Monday.  I was pretty happy though that Mother Nature did give us a few moment of a blue sky on Sunday morning, but she quickly took it back and replaced it with overcast rainy skies.  Not fair.  Not fair at all.  And lastly, something inside me prompted me to see my fitness progress.  I was kinda surprised...

Toys'r'us, not just for little kids anymore. :)

I pretty much forced C to take a picture with me. He wasn't too happy about the traffic. 

Gatlinburg isn't complete without a meal here.  It was yummy as always.

The birthday minion and I.

The oldest minion and I.

The youngest minion and I.

Me and one of my very best friends. :) 

Please excuse the reindeer antlers my hair seems to have decided to make... 

This little girl seemed to love the sparklers. 

I sure can't wait for the rain to end so I can see this more often!! 

And finally... Top row from left to right - 2/2/13 then 2/13/13 then 3/16ish/13
Bottom row from left to right - 4/13ish/13 - 5/26ish/13 - 7/4/13
5 months progress. :)

Once again, it is Workout Wednesday.  I've gotten a little into Crossfit.  Now, I am no pro, and I certainly can't do many of the workouts as "Rx", or prescribed, but I certainly have fun trying. Today's workout is one of Crossfit's benchmark workouts. I can't do this one as Rx'd, once because our gym doesn't have rings, and 2 because I can't use that weight though. I use the bar which is 45 lbs. 


Cleans (135 lbs - men/95 lbs - women)

4th of July Recap

So it looks like I am playing blogging catch up.  So here is my 4th of July recap! :)

We do things festive in the Long house, so that means that we had red, white, and blue waffles with equally as festive toppings.  Blueberries, strawberries, and whipped topping for the win!

Seriously? Can a breakfast be more festive?  Yes, yes it can. 

My point in case. Along with our festive waffles, we had festive doughnut skewers.  Complete with a glazed doughnut, blueberries, strawberries, and bananas for good measure. 

My little brother even enjoyed all of our festive-ness!!

And what makes a good festive breakfast complete??  That would be stripped straws in red, white, and blue of course!

Not only were my jama pants festive, but my toes were painted a festive navy!

We had lunch with my step-mom's parents. Yummy BBQ on forth of July?  All I can say about that is 'Merica!

And as usual!! We continued on with the festive-ness with Bomb pops and bottle rockets! Turns out that Lyss doesn't like bomb pops. 

But she likes shooting off fireworks. 

Thanks so all the men and women of the armed forces that keep our country safe. And a special thanks to those who have given their all, and their families. C and I am proud American's and we are so grateful for those fighting for our freedom!! Happy late Independence day ya'll!!

5 Years from Now [52 Weeks]

Again I am linking up with Becky over at From Mrs to Mama for this week's post of 52 weeks of blogging with purpose. This weeks topic is "5 years from now"

I don't know where I will be in 5 years for sure, but I know I have some high hopes. 

**I hope that I have a much stronger relationship with God.  This one takes top priority. 
**I hope to be a better wife.  I hope that I am to a point where I complain less, and love more.  I hope that I have made a point to make sure that C knows just how much I love him each and every day, because sometimes we forget to mention the little things. 
**I hope that we have started a family if that is what is in the plans for us. 
**I hope to be celebrating not only C's 29th birthday in August, my 29th birthday in September, but also our 8th anniversary in October.
**I hope that I will have traveled more. 
**I hope that we are out of debt except for a house. I want us to buy a house in the next 5 years, so I can see still owing on that, but all our other debt I want gone, and I firmly believe we will be out of all other debt, and well on our way to paying off a home.
**I hope that my family is happy and healthy and knows how much they are loved. 
**I hope to have graduated, or be getting ready to graduate from college.  I went for a few semesters right out of high school, but I never finished, so I hope to go back and finish college.  
**I hope that I have figured out what I want to be when I grow up.
**I hope to have hit my healthy weight/body fat percentage/body mass index and I hope that I continue to maintain it and a healthy lifestyle. 
**I hope that a plan C and I have has been put into motion. 
**I hope I am a better daughter, a better sister, and a better friend because there is always room to improve. 

and lastly...
**I hope that no matter how hard life gets that I have C to stand by my side and laugh with me. 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
