What is a Mother?

Mothers. Webster’s Dictionary defines a “mother” as merely a “female parent” among other definitions. In my opinion, this definition is a load of crap and doesn’t other begin to scratch the surface of what a mother is.

So I would like to introduce my own definition for the word “mother”:

Firstly, a mother is a woman who puts up with you even when she doesn’t have to.

When you are the most ungrateful little brat, she calms you down and still loves you. When you royally screw up on a test or a project at work, she’s there to convince you that it isn’t the end of the world. When you really don’t deserve a mother as great as her, she’s always a phone call or a drive away.

Secondly, a mother is a woman who sacrifices her whole world just to make sure you have what you need.

She does without the nice clothes to make sure you have your supplies on your first day of a new school year. She works overtime to make sure you get that dream dress for your Senior Prom. She puts herself second to make sure her family has all the necessities. She loses sleep just worrying if you’re going to ace that exam you’ve been worrying about all week. She would rather have herself ran ragged if it means that her family is taken care of.

Thirdly, a mother is everything that is lovely and good in life. 

Kind; Caring; Generous; Loving. These are just a few descriptors of what mothers are. Whether they are your biological mom, adoptive mom, or just a mother figure in your life, they all go through the ringer to make sure you are loved! I think mothers should be celebrated on more than just one day a year. If we all learned how to appreciate the great mothers we have (myself included), the world may be a better place.

To my own mother:


I know I can be a tremendous handful around 99.9% of the time. But I do want to let you know that I will be eternally grateful for all that you have done to make sure that I achieve my dreams.


You have been my rock and my best friend for as long as I can rememeber. I will never be able to thank you enough or repay you for all that you have done. From the late night phone calls  of me balling my eyes out, to the ecstatic phone calls of passing my incredibly stupid Geology class, you are always there for me. And even if I end up going crazy from school and you’ll have to have me institutionalized, I’m pretty sure you’ll still be there for me! And always remember,


Love you, Madre!


Happy Mother’s Day!


Engagements and Weddings and Babies….oh my!

Happy Sunday, love bugs!

The title of this blog pretty much sums up my feelings in a nutshell.

Logging into my social media everyday and seeing announcements and pictures of newly engaged couples and newborn babies can be a lovely experience!….until you start to hear your internal clock tick and tock even louder than before.


Then that little obnoxious voice inside your head starts to interrogate you like a noobie cop fresh out of the academy:

“Wow, you went to high school with her! Why aren’t you married yet?!”

“They’ve been together for how many years?! You’ve barely had a decent and normal functioning relationship with a guy since…..never!”

“She just started college a year ago and she’s engaged! When’s your guy coming around?”

Now, I’m not saying by any means that I’m ready for a commitment like that sometime soon. I’m just starting to feel like that kid on the other side of the fence looking in, waiting for an invite into the “Happy Twenty-Somethings Club”. They have someone to come home to, or to share an achievement went, or to just be content with on a Saturday night with cuddled on the couch.


And yes, I am happy right now. I have around two years left in my Undergraduate degree; I’m preparing to get my Masters degree shortly after; I’m finally setting in stone that I want to be a School Counselor. Yes, I’m happy with myself, accomplishment wise.  But relationship wise, nowhere close.

Thinking back to when I was little, I’ve always been in love with the concept of Love. Seeing my parents and other couples, I always thought to myself, “That’s gonna be me someday! I’m gonna meet my Prince Charming and everything will be perfect!” Now, I’m starting to get worn out and tired. And I’m pretty sure that guy has gotten lost and broken down on some back road somewhere……


I know I’m only 20, soon to be 21, and I have plenty of time! But for me, I’m an extreme planner. I plan out EVERYTHING! (Trust me, ask my Madre). I make lists and plans for everything imaginable: Shopping for clothes; when I’m taking what class and during what semester/year; Lists of possible Grad schools; Plan A,B,C,D,E,F, etc.

The list can go on forever! But Love, I can’t plan that and it’s driving me nuts!


I have no idea when I’ll meet him or when when things will start rolling. You can’t plan when you fall in Love. If just happens. I think God loves to remind me of that, honestly. It makes me fully trust in Him and wait on His timing. I just wish it would happen already!

And I can already hear the comments, “Oh don’t rush it! It’ll happen so fast!” or “Focus on yourself first!” I’ve been focusing on myself for a good almost 21 years!

I can determine between the good and bad guys, I’ve had that issue enough in the past. So if things could speed up a little, I would much appreciate it! I know he’s out there……somewhere.


Well back to my procrastination! I mean studies! (yeah sure…..that’s what I meant)

Have a good night, love bugs!

Kayla :)

What is Love?

So I’m back! I’m really sorry that it’s been absolutely forever since my last post. But this Spring semester has given me brief moments here and there to hopefully keep up with this (which will be once a week, maybe two at the most, from now on). So forgive me if I miss a week here or there. Anyways……to the post!

As you can see by my title, love is the topic of discussion today. If you look up “love” in the dictionary, as a verb, it’s defined as,

“to feel great affection for (someone) : to feel love for (someone)

: to feel sexual or romantic love for (someone)

: to like or desire (something) very much : to take great pleasure in (something)”

Nowadays, a vast amount of us throw around the word “love” in the way it was not meant to be used. You feel so strongly about something you take pride in or feel so deeply about someone you couldn’t imagine spending another day without them; you wouldn’t imagine putting them on the same level as something so trivial as a new piece of technology or a new bag, would you? No? Well do you say….

  • I LOVE that new book that just came out by her!
  • I’m so in love with this store. It has everything!
  • I love this song!

Not trying to single anyone out! Trust me, I do this all the time too.

But when you say “I love you” or use the word “love”, do you honestly mean what you’re saying? Do you have that true feeling of affection and admiration towards that person? Or is it just something you say just to get it out of the way?

Being on the “outside-looking-in” side of relationships at the moment, I can see, in some instances, this phrase is just thrown around like a Frisbee. It’s like you check it off your list so it looks like you were a good boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife today. I understand everyone is at a different stage in whatever kind of relationship they are in. But if you are at that stage of saying “I love you”, you should really mean it and know the meaning behind what you are saying; the deep meaning. 

In that same definition of “love” I gave earlier, some synonyms are given, such as the following:

  • to appreciate
  • to cherish
  • to treasure
  • to fall for
  • to value
  • to lose one’s heart to (my favorite)

Also, some related words:

  • to delight in
  • to admire
  • to revere
  • to revel in
  • to adore

I know some of those can still scratch the surface and not be as deep as another, but I think you can see where I’m going with this.

By any means, I am not trying to make any couple or pair of friends feel bad about saying “I love you”, because obviously, you guys know more about where you are at in your relationship than I do. My main reason for writing about this and getting it off my chest is to make people more aware of how much you can mean to someone and how great you can make someone feel by just using words.

Saying something so strong and deep as “love” should not be played around with.

I’m sorry for getting a little deep today, but I just really needed to get that off my chest.

So thank you for listening. Have a great day, love bugs.

I Can See the Light at the End of the Tunnel!…..or is it just a train with a bright light?

Hello loves! Sorry I’ve been MIA but I’m trying my best  to keep up with blogging :P But today was a very long and tiring today. Didn’t get to bed last night till around 3am working on a research proposal and then had to get up at 7:30am for my 9:30 class……lets just say I’m running on fumes today….

But for some reason, I still had a really good day. I’m not saying that I yawned and whined about being tired around 10000% of the day, but it was still good! My week is almost over, most of my work is already turned in for this week. So I’m just cruising along to Thanksgiving Break! How are y’all doing? I probably should ask that more but I’m just in my own little world right now, so sorry not sorry!

But anyways, sorry my life isn’t crazy exciting or anything, so hopefully it isn’t too boring :P


Well I’ll let y’all get back to your exciting lives!

Sleepy well, love bugs


Taking a Break for a Moment!

hey guys! Sorry but I’m just taking a quick break from my homework to say hey! Trust me, I will be complaining about these questions tomorrow night on here…..ugh they are ridiculous! 

But I hope y’all are having a fantabulous weekend so far! 

Love you love bugs!


(oh, and here’s a picture of a cute puppy :) )



Baby it’s Cold Outside……

Howdy people of WordPress! I really should consider just posting 3 times a week instead of everyday. I’m too forgetful to actually remember to be awesome once a day on here….I’ll figure it out.

But anyways, I froze to death last night! It was our last football game of the season and my parents came! My mom was like a kid in a college-football-themed candy store! That’s one of our favorite things to do together is watch football. My dad kinda likes sports, but not a whole lot. Either way, it was great! Even if I did freeze to death with layers upon layers of clothes on! But we won, so it was worth it and plus we were super close to the sideline behind our team, which means one thing….super cute football players *insert swoon*

Sadly this weekend is claimed by my lover, named “Stupid Homework”. We’re super close, guys. Like we’re super serious about each other. Psychology, piled on by more Psychology, stuff to catch up on for work, and just a sprig of “Spanish Oral Exam”. Sounds like a great combination to go crazy right?! Thought so….

Well speaking of homework, I guess I should go back to my insane asylum of work….ugh. If anyone feels the Spirit moving them to come rescue me from this torture, then by all means, listen to it!

On that note, I will descend back into my late night of slaving in front of the computer. Feel free to distract me!

Have a great night, love bugs!


I’m Finally Free!……. For the Moment At Least…

Howdy y’all! I hope everyone has had a great day! I finally have a free minute, which is extremely rare! I stayed up till around 3am just trying to finish homework and other things, so sleep is definitely in the cards for me tonight!

So I know I complain (quite often actually) about wanting cooler weather to come along, but I did not have this in mind! High of 50 degrees and windy?! Oh hell no!! So I’ve looked like an Eskimo most of the day and froze my little booty off.

But a part from me freezing, I’ve had a TON of things on my mind lately. Getting through school in a few years; getting in to Grad school; getting and looking for jobs. It can be very overwhelming for a girl, especially if she gets anxiety over every little thing! So the one thought on my mind is to either keep or drop my Mass Communications minor. I absolutely love working in the radio station here, so I wouldn’t mind having a back up for Counseling! So I have time to contemplate, but who knows what I’ll do. I mean I changed my major like three times so who really knows…..

But anyways, I am so looking forward to Thanksgiving Break!!! (insert extreme happy dance!!!) Baking, starting Christmas shopping and hopefully putting up the tree! And studying for exams…..yeah, lets not talk about that….Well I can’t wait to break out the cook books and actually sleep in a big bed; ’tis music to my ears (let the “over excited pictures begin)……..

SNL  emma-stone-excited  excited_girl charliebrownthanksgiving2

Another thing I’m ready for is FOOTBALL TOMORROW!!!!! My parents are coming to the last game of the season tomorrow and I’m super excited! They’ve never been to a game yet here, so hopefully it will be a good one! I honestly can’t get enough of football! I hope I have a little boy one day, so maybe he will like football! If not, oh well! He’ll have to listen to Mommy scream about UGA every Saturday (Go Dawgs!).

But enough of my rambling, I will let y’all get back to your regularly scheduled programming! For me, that means American Horror Story: Coven! So have a lovely night!

Sweet dreams, love bugs!


Sorry for Sucking at Blogging…….

Hey love bugs! I’m sorry I’m not keeping up with this whole “blogging everyday thing”. But don’t worry! I will be back in full force tomorrow! My school load is always hectic on Tuesdays and Thursday because I’m also at the station till late those days. But until tomorrow, I will leave you with lovely pictures of an attractive males with cute baby animals……Can I have them all?!!

Good Night, love bugs!

Kaymo :)

Lovely Sunday……..except for all the Screaming Machines…..

Happy Sunday, love bugs!

I hope everyone has a great day. Mine was the usual Sunday: Dragging my non-existent butt out of my small but comfy dorm bed and trying to be ready by the time my parentals make it down to C-town (hint: it never happens)

Being November, I’m in the state of mind most college kids are in: When can I drink myself into oblivion? When can I quit and work at Disney World? When does Thanksgiving and Christmas Break get here?!! I literally feel like a walking zombie and I’m pretty sure my parents can tell! (sorry dudes :P)

But you can tell when you need to do everything in your power to leave a certain area (college) for a bit & go to the Promised Land (home sweet home!)

  • The natives start to become even more annoying than you thought possible.
  • You complain like a 4 year old that you “just want your mommy” and you “wanna go home!!”
  • You wanna kill your co-workers/classmates
  • Even cute kids become incredibly annoying (which I didn’t even know that was possible)

For example, apparently all children in Carroll Co. decided to be extremely cute and annoying at the same today at all establishments I graced my presence with.

Kroger: WAHHHHHH! (I swear they came by the millions today)

IHOP: MOMMY!!!! (seriously, they followed us)

After today, I had a pounding headache and sudden urge to crawl into fetal position.

Moral of the Story: I want to go home so bad! See my friends; actually be able to cook something more than Easy Mac and bake my little heart out; sleep in a bed that was designed for normal human beings. Sounds lovely right?


So fair warning to the masses: I will be whining until at least Thanksgiving (then after about Finals Week…. ugh). Hopefully y’all will stick with me through the holidays!

In the meantime, I need to actually work on homework and stuff for work! So hopefully I won’t get too distracted my basically everything in the world…….

Night, love bugs!

My First Time…..


Hello people of the blogging universe!!! (and those just visiting)

I’m so excited about finally starting this blog! I’ve been meaning to ever since the school year started!

Ok, well I guess a little introduction is in order.

My name is Kayla, I’m born and raised in Georgia, and I’m in my 3rd year of college! I’m currently a Psychology major at the University of West Georgia!

These are a few of my favorite things……

  • PUPPIES!!!!- As both of us begin this journey of getting to know each other better, you will see that I have a huge love/love relationship with most animals, especially dogs! Of what I would do to have a puppy in my dorm room….
  • Cute Kids!!- I love children, that makes sense considering I want to be a School Counselor! 
  • My family- Although my family have had our ups and down, they are my rock and I honestly don’t know what I would do without them!
  • Baking!!- I am so obsessed with baking anything and everything! I spoil my friends with sugary delights!! (they know they love it) My wish for my 21st Birthday is not to get wasty pants (ok, maybe a little…..), but a Navy or Mint Green Kitchen-Aid Artisan Stand Mixer (hint hint, Mother…..)
  • My 2nd Family- I absolutely LOVE my job, which is being the Social Media Specialist at my on-campus Internet College Radio station! I worked my way to the position I’m at currently and I don’t wanna give it up! I couldn’t dream of not working with my favorite people everyday!

So you’re probably wondering “Why in the world is this crazy lady starting a blog?! And where can I get some of her amazeball homemade cinnamon rolls?! Well the reason I’m making this is to just share my crazy, hectic, beautiful mess of a life with everyone who wants to know!

I’m pretty much an open book, so feel free to leave a comment or whatever you like! Well,time to stop procrastinating on my homework….haha, I crack myself up…….

Anyways, I will talk to y’all soon! 


Bye love bugs!
