A Little About Me

I'm Kala.. Yes there's no Y in my name. Mom says it's because she didn't want me to have a hard time writing it in kindergarten.. Silly I know but that's Mom. I grew up in the small town of Nokomis as the youngest of 3 other siblings Shane, Michael and Mindy. The song American Honey relates most to my life... "She grew up on the side of the road, where the church bells ring and strong love grows, she grew up good, she grew up slow, like American Honey" I am going to be sharing my stories of the past present and what I hope to accomplish in my future. I am a very genuine girl and pray and hope my life in the future brings me happiness and joy and still be the genuine person I am... Life Is Short Lets Make The Best Of It!!!

Halloween and Thanksgiving...

Its the eye of the pirate!!!
You guessed it Halloween... A day you can be anything you want and Nobody has the right to judge or criticize you for the way you look or how you are dressed... You can look at your inner self and bring it to the public! I picked a pirate because I have the accent for the look... Although it was a little bit 'riskay' I liked it and had fun with it.. That's what it's all about right? Being young and having fun! 21 what better year to wear a short skirt and high boots! I seen zombie nurses, doctors, of course Michael Meyers which still is the scariest thing I have saw.. So many creative ideas weather you were alone or had a partner to complete your outfit. From babies to adults we all like to show our kid in us.. I would have loved to go trick or treating as well but, I think because I didn't have a kid by me candy wouldn't have been put in my face.. A door most likely would have!

As November began It seemed like Thanksgiving was forever away... How wrong I was.. I had 2 weeks DC trip and then week home then Thanksgiving! What the heck!
But as we all know Thanksgiving doesn't have much decorations and no special cobwebs or trees to put up.. It's simply a turkey and not many people put out turkeys for decor we'd rather just eat them. Haha! From the dishes to be prepared to the pies needed to be put into the oven, everyone is still thinking of 'Christmas is only a month away' Poor Charlie brown doesn't even get a chance on Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving.. Were already watching Christmas Vacation! As Thanksgiving rolled around I sat down to my fathers side of the family, much quieter. We had great company food and conversation.. As the families part there ways go to there own houses the Man of the house sits in the recliner turnes on football and closes his eyes.. The kids fall asleep playing with there toys and the woman... CLEANS! :) Holidays are wonderful!

I hope everyone had fun expressing themselves on Halloween and Had a blessed Thanksgiving with lots of laughs, time with family, and most importantly got there belly full!
Thanks for reading and god bless!

Washington DC... What a site to See

Back in November... I received a call saying I had the opportunity to work in Washington DC... Did I think twice.. So what if I did, we all know my Mother would 'have my butt' as she would say!
Being so excited I said... What better time to see a city in this world that people dream about seeing! I got a free ride to go 'work' there.. Work was not on my mind I was going to get to see Capitol Hill, Pentagon, Washington Monument, and The White House. Who cares if it was a business trip? Some people walk to work here daily and don't think about the many people that have never and may never see such an awesome site!
A girly girl such as myself.. I had to have good hair, a nice outfit, and you guessed it, my heals. The airport for heals, yeah not the best idea I have ever had. But 'beauty is pain' so it was. By the end of the day being in an airports and on a plane from 3-12 I was so ready to get to the hotel and take a shower. But, as we were landing I looked to my right and saw.. The Capitol!! I felt like I met a famous person. The business guy next to me said "It's not that great" which made me laugh but like a kid in the candy store and as outgoing as I am, I said, "OMG but I've never seen it" and yes I said OMG not Oh My God! Ha!!
It was walking off the plane looking out the windows at the airport I soaked it all in.. All the presidents, all the many decisions, many acts taken place there. Not to mention the famous people, the movies that were shot, where I was!! Me, from little old Nokomis! I ended up seeing all I wanted to see. Not to visit but I saw it! Not from a TV screen or in a theater or in a lame educational video! It was truly something amazing to see!! :)
God has truly blessed me with all I have!
