Did You Know? {Secrets about me}

Did you know....
{Well this post will be all about things you don't know about me that I am so graciously going to share with you. Some things are embarrassing, some funny, and some are just new facts about me, us.}

#1. I recently discovered that I enjoy Seinfeld. Ever heard of it :) Of course you have! Well yesterday I got home from work, Kasey had to go to work from 6-10pm, and I sat down and turned on Seinfeld...
Then I fell asleep.
Until 10:15pm, when Kasey got home.
We were both giggly because I am such a nut to have taken a "nap" for 4 hours.
We stayed up for an hour and I thought I would have a horrible night trying to sleep...
Slept all night and didn't wake up until 7:30am. What a great night.
I loved it. I should probably not do that too often though.

#2. I have colonies of "blemishes" growing on my face, ever since I got off of proactive.
{I speak of it as if its some kind of drug... ha}
So if anyone has any suggestions on how to get rid of these "problem areas"
please share. Thanks.

#3. Kasey only has a couple days left of school and let me tell you he is MORE than ready to cruise. Well, we both are, but he deserves it so very much more than me! We have been looking at the menus online and watching youtube videos about our ship.

#4. The newest secret that I have is... I love
The other night I watched Animal planet for a solid 3 hours. I learned so much, maybe useless, information. It was called "Yellowstone: The fight for life". Since we are going to Yellowstone soon {sometime this spring with our friends SDR and Mac Rae} it was fun to learn about different animals and get excited to go!

#5. Sometimes I don't:
{Disclaimer. This list is slightly embarrassing}
-brush my teeth before bed
-wash my face before bed
-clean my house
{hair is on the bathroom floor, bed not made, dishes in sink, etc}
-decorate for every holiday
-follow through with my plans
-switch over my laundry, I forget, and then I have to re-wash it
But, at the end of the day,
Kasey still thinks I am the
best wife ever.
I love my life.
Even when I am not perfect.
He makes me feel perfect.
Love you Kase.
You are the best. I am the luckiest girl.
Forever sometimes just doesn't seem long enough.
{Oh I'm a sucker for not cheese, thats Kasey... actual sappy romance can you tell?}

Love, The Hendricks


  1. ADORABLE!! I am pretty sure we are soul sisters! I am on proactive right now and I really wish I didn't have to be on it cause I could def use the money somewhere else! The worst part is that I still have issues with my skin! Jeff and I went on a cruise last may before we had reagan! it was a blast! Loved every minute of it! and girlfriend I'm pretty sure everyone has nights that they don't brush their teeth or wash their face...I know I have my days...people just don't have enough guts to say it out loud!:) Way to be open! Loved the post!

  2. Ummm Amber.. Me and Fielding were on the Carnival Paradise! I really did gain 5 pounds... and I still haven't lost them! We ordered this chocolate cake to our room probably twice every night. It was so good. Anyways.. have fun!!! Whoooo! Oh and they have like free sushi night.. or they did when we went four months ago. So good. Okay, that's all I'm saying because I am just reminising.

  3. HAHAHA I was on the Carnival Paradise too!!

    They still have the free midnight buffet. All you can eat sushi with beautiful ice sculptures.

    You are going to LOVE IT!
    Love Madeline

  4. #1 and #4 are my FAAAAVES! I am so glad that you have discovered Seinfeld...oh the laughs we will have. (or just you. by yourself. outloud) haha. how I love my SDR and FAE!!! but I must say how sorry I feel for you that you have to go on that cruise. Cruises are waaayyy over-rated. So ya, you should just stay home and hang out with me instead!
    Mucho love
