A party + a tournament

Friday night was one of my best friends Megan's birthday party. We went swimming and just hung out at her house afterwards. It was so much fun!
Here's a picture of me and my friend Liana. Haha, we're holding the salt & pepper shakers from Megan's house!

Yesterday Nanny & Pepaw came up to watch Ryan's tournament this weekend. They ended up winning the tourney today! (Ryan's #1)

They'll also get to see my choir concert tomorrow night and Karis's kindergarten graduation Tuesday night. It'll be great!

Mother's Day weekend

Naturally, Mother's Day weekend was spent at the baseball fields. This tournament didn't go as well. There were alot of teams that were above AAA, so they were all really good. Ryan pitched most of the game we played today, and in the fifth inning it was tied, 2-2. We went to the 7th inning when the other team scored and we lost. After that, the boys all went out on home plate with roses for the moms. I thought it was SUPER rare to see them do this, so I whipped out my iPhone and got a few pictures!

Mom, Mimi, Nanny, Kimberly, Deneise, Katie, Judy, Barbara, LeAnn, Marcy...
Hope all the mothers/grandmothers/aunts have an amazing day!


I've been asking for a keyboard/piano for a very long time. Well, Friday after school my grandpa took me to Guitar Center to buy one! (Irony: buying a keyboard at Guitar Center, haha). It's a Casio, with 88 weighted keys!

I start my first piano lesson on Tuesday, and Karis is going to take them too. I'm excited, and can't wait to get started!

Blogger Profiles

I've cracked a ton of codes on Myspace and Facebook over the time I've had them to where I know what and where to put things. But on Blogger? Not really! So, the new profile is the best I could manage :)

Baseball has become my life

Two weekends ago Ryan had a tournament in Bixby where they won the championship! The last game seemed like it lasted for hours, but they won in the end. I didn't think to take pictures til the trophy 'ceremony' so here there are!

Ryan has two or three games a week and tournaments about every other weekend. It seems like I'm at the fields 80% of the time now!

A 6-year-old view on popularity

My mom and my sister, Karis, went shopping after school yesterday to look for an Easter dress and a few things for spring. This is Karis' favorite outfit that she got:

After looking at it, her and I proceeded with the following conversation:

Karis: I love this shirt!
Cayley: Yea, I like it too!
K: Now people at school will make me popular.
C: What?
K: If I wear cute clothes then my friends will like me and make me popular.
C: Um, okay? And you weren't before?
K: (makes a crazy face) Does it look like I'd be popular?
C: (laughing uncontrollably) Uh, I guess not!

Just a little note, Karis goes to a private school. They wear uniforms. Hahaha, it was hilarious. I love my sister :)

Snow in Spring?

No joke, yesterday we got around 5 or 6 inches of snow! It started around 4 AM Saturday morning and didn't stop til 6 or 7 PM. It was ginormous flakes and there was thunder. Which I thought was weird cus usually thunder is associated with rain? Anyway, here's a picture of how much there was in my front yard:

And the funniest part? It's all completely melted now. It was like, 60 degrees all day so now it's all a wet, muddy mess.

Happy Birthday!

To my amazing aunt Neesie! Love you and hope you have a great day, :)

Texas pictures!

You can tell they both really wanted to take this picture.

Best cousin ever!

Me & Brody, :)

Andy really wanted to get the candy out.

Thanks again to everyone who helped me have an awesome Spring Break down there. It was so much fun to see y'all and spend time with everyone. I couldn't imagine a better trip!

Trips & Wishes

Spring Break is here! Exciting :)

Tomorrow is my 15th birthday! I'm stoked. It'll just be me, my mom, Jay, and my grandparents, but that's fine with me!

I've been doing laundry and packing for my Texas trip all day. I've never realized how much I need for 7 days, hah. I went to Barnes & Noble yesterday and spent my gift card Nanny gave me for Christmas on two books for the drive and if I have any downtime during the week. I swear if B&N had dorms, I'd live there! Tons of books, coffee, and quiet :)

Well, next time I post anything will most likely be when I'm in my favorite state! Hope everyone has a great start to their weeks!

Oh, I was doing my devotional today and I ran across this statement: "God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things." Being young, I always think that there is never a chance to make a small difference in my small town. That gives me the determination to go out and do what God has planned for me! Just though I'd share that :)

With Love,
The Almost Birthday Girl

Sing Sing Sing

Today was an absolutely GORGEOUS day. Almost 80 degrees! Come on summer!

I was excused from 1st, 2nd, and 3rd hour in school today to rehearse for my choir concert tonight. I didn't exactly want to since I have a test in 2nd hour tomorrow and a research paper on the Boston Red Sox due in 3rd hour next week...

As I said before, choir concert tonight! I guess I'm kinda excited, although my legs to get tired from standing after a while.

9 days til my birthday! Woohoo! & spring break needs to hurry up and get here already.

Til later,
Cayley :)

Happy Birthday Brandon!

Now, I'm not going to get too sappy here, but today is my cousin Brandon's birthday! He is an amazing role model and the closest thing I have to a big brother, which is pretty much what he is to me. I wish I could see him every day, but the miles from here to there are quite lengthy. He's accomplished so many things this past year and I'm proud of him.
I love you Brandon!

Cayley :)

Last night was my first formal! It was SO much fun and I danced til I was sore. Kent wasn't able to go so I went with some friends. We met at Benali's (semi-fancy Italian restaurant) and ate beforehand. Boy, did I eat alot. Then we all crammed into one car to ride to the school. It was really loud, but fun. And I danced so much that my legs are still screaming from being sore. It was worth it, though! I didn't take my camera to the actual dance cuz I didn't want to carry it around, so apologies up front.

Me and Lauren! Ha, love her.

Audrey, Regina, and me. The lighting was TERRIBLE at the restaurant.

Megan, me, Audrey, Jacqueline, Kelsey, and Regina at Benali's.

Jacqueline, me, and Megan.

Just me :)

I just realized, 2 weeks until I turn 15!! That means Brandon is OLD. Haha, just kidding. Next year I'll be driving! Lord, that's a scary thought...

Spring Break is around the corner and I'm hoping to make my way down to Texas. Most likely by myself. I'm praying that I can!

Til next time,
Cayley :)

The day of LOVE!

Hello! Hope every one gave out lots of love today! I'm on a retreat with my church this weekend, so unfortunately I'm not going to see my valentine today. I am having a blast with all my friends, though.

Til next time,

This week

My week started off alright. Tuesday was the school talent show and my show choir performed in it. It was fun to do a routine and perform! Wednesday was church, which I always love! I got a headache during the middle of the sermon, but I thought it would go away soon. Boy, was I wrong.

Thursday I woke up with an excruciating headache and stomach pains. UGH. I went to school reluctantly just because I really did not want to be swamped with homework. Kent could tell something was off with me and he helped as best he could. I didn't eat until I got home that day. To top off a sucky day, I got a 64% on my geometry test. I took some medicine hoping and praying I'd feel better because I really did NOT want to miss school. This morning I woke up and felt decent with a mild headache. Decent enough to go to school, at least. Luckily the homework load is light this weekend and hopefully none of this will come back.

Tomorrow I'm going to shoe shopping for formal with my mom and we're gonna go see Bride Wars. Kent and I may possibly do Valentine's Day tomorrow night since I'll be on a retreat with my church the day of. We'll see.

Pray for my cousin LeAnn. She's in so much pain with Brody...I love you Lea!
With Love,
Cayley :)

La la la...

Ice days are pretty fantastic, if I do say so myself. We've been out of school for two days because of this ice! We'll probably be out tomorrow as well. The only reason I want to go back to school is to see Kent, but it's nice to be able to sleep in. Last weekend I went and got my dress for my school formal! Here it is:

I can't wait to wear it! But I've got a bit cuz formal isn't until February 28th. Oh well. Haha, and Kent's going crazy since I won't tell him what it looks like :D

Not much else to report, except it's still freezing! Have a great week :)

3 day weekend!

Thank God for MLK Day! Haha, it adds another day to where I can sleep more. Yesterday I helped my mom clean house and went with her to get her new car. It's a dark blue BMW and I love it! This morning I went to church which was awesome, as usual. Tomorrow I'll probably sleep in a bit and go over to Kent's house to watch The Dark Knight and hang out. I'm excited!

Big news! (for me at least)

Wow, I haven't blogged in over a week! That's abnormal for me. Haha, well big news! I have a boyfriend! His name is Kent, :) we've been together since the 12th. He's an amazing Christian guy with great values and an awesome family. Plus he's adorable and incredibly sweet. He's a musician as well! Guitar, drums, and piano. He is truly a blessing in my life. We're going to formal together at the end of February so I'm extremely excited for that! He's not a very photogenic person, but if I can coaxe a picture of us out of him then I'll post it ASAP, haha.
Have a great week!
Cayley :)

A little update

Hey everyone! Just a note: my mom's surgery went well. She has on a big, black boot and has to stay off her feet for the next 2-3 weeks.
Monday I went to a funeral for a dear friend at my church. Myka had cystic fibrosis and had a double lung transplant about 3 years ago. Her lungs did not start rejecting until around Thanksgiving and she went to be with God last Monday. She was 18 years old. It was quite a celebration. The youth wore party hats and balloons were everywhere! Which is what she wanted. She had quite a testimony and was such an inspiration to me. I miss her, but I know she is pain-free up in Heaven.
The first part of finals were today. I had choir, English, and Spanish. Choir and English were a breeze! Spanish, not so much. Tomorrow I'll finish off finals with Oklahoma History, Geometry, and Biology. Pretty much all my hard classes. I'm studying hard and just praying I do well.
Have a great day!
With Love,
