Happy Friday! Does anyone else feel like July is FLYING by? I mean, seriously, I feel like it was just the Fourth of July. Can time slow down? Pleaseandthanks. Here’s what has been going on with me lately: I guess first thing’s first: my Nana passed away last night. She has been sick for a while and has been battling lung cancer for years. My Pop Pop died 3 years ago so I’m happy that they are finally reunited. I’m strangely at peace with it all. I knew it would be coming sooner or later so I guess that has been helping me to not feel too upset. She had a laryngectomy (fellow SLPs will know what I’m taking about!) about 2 years ago so she has not been able to speak. I hope that once I become an SLP I can do more work with laryngectomees in her memory. Ryan and I are slowly getting our West Chester apartment unpacked and ready! I’m really excited because the place is the perfect size for us, has 4 huge windows with tons of natural light, and is within walking distance to town and some great brunch spots (check out the ‘gram… View Post

This post contains Amazon affiliate links. I caved. For the past few years that I had known Prime Day to exist, I hadn’t purchased anything. I resisted the deals and survived. This year was a bit different. For one thing, I have $$$. I am trying to save most of what I make this summer to buy a car, but I still am making more money in one summer than I ever have before #bless. I couldn’t resist Prime Day this year. Almost all of the items I bought were extremely practical things I had been wanting for a while and were marked down to a great price. I don’t feel guilty about any of my purchases at all which I think is a HUGE win. Here’s what I got: Kindle Paperwhite Get it here. Ryan bought me a Kindle Fire HD 4 years ago for our first Christmas. I loved that thing for a while and refused to read my e-books on anything else. However, I slowly began to convert to reading on my iPhone. It was more portable than the Fire and I always had it with me. I decided to get the Paperwhite because I struggle to… View Post

Today’s post is a much-anticipated bucket list update! JK I don’t really know if anyone has been anticipating this but a few years ago, I made a bucket list and published it on the blog. I’ve crossed a few things off of it since then and there are a few things I’d like to add/edit! The new things I added I put in green! I love reading other people’s bucket lists and seeing what they’ve crossed off and what they still have yet to do. If you have a bucket list post on your blog… share it with me in the comments please!

Welcome to Friday! How’s it going? I’m back with another chit chat post. This week I started a new job and I figured I should probably fill you guys in on what has been happening. So, here we go… I started working for Henkels & McCoy (yes, Ryan works for them too!) as an office clerk. Right now I’ve been helping with new hires, making lots of copies, and sorting forms. I have to work 6 days a week (yes, I work Saturdays) and I’m at the office for over 12 hours/day (mostly just waiting for Ryan to be able to leave) but it has honestly been kind of fun! I’m sure in a few weeks I’ll be wanting to just curl up in a ball and sleep forever but I really like everyone I’m working with and I don’t have to dress up and I get to make binders so like, what more could I ask for? The #KaylaBlogsAnnualPlannerPost is ALMOST HERE! Stay tuned. There have been some awesome developments over the last two weeks and I’m so excited about the brands I’ll be working with. I’m bringing back some brands from last year but I’m making sure there… View Post

Hopefully you guys are liking these because I’m back with yet another life update post! I have really been loving chatting with y’all about what has been happening around these parts (please read that in a strong southern accent). Here’s what’s new since the last time we chatted: I’ve been uploading weekly on YouTube! I have so many fun ideas for future videos this summer so make sure you’re subscribed. I graduated college! I still can’t believe it honestly but I’m so happy and relieved to be finished at Temple University. My brother graduated high school! This was a pretty big deal because we weren’t sure if he could do it (jk). He’s officially one step closer to starting school at the University of Virginia in just a few short weeks. Since he’ll be a student-athlete they want them to take a summer course so he’ll be moved in and ready to go at the beginning of July! Lord help us all. I start work next week. Ryan is already up in the Scranton area for work but I’ll be joining him next week to begin working on the project with him. I’ll just be an office “clerk” for the… View Post
