What Renee Believes...and I Agree With

Meet Renee. She's funny and pretty and has a lot of things she believes in. Don't we all? Listen up, laugh, and nod along...because that's basically what I did. Oh, and don't forget to enter the SA-WEET giveaway Renee so kindly is hosting. $25 to Target AND Sephora...ummm yes, please? Take it away, dahling!


Ohh snap. I'm sure y'all are thinking dang Casey, really another guest post? And I'm also sure that in two point five seconds y'all will be like peace out.

Your loss really. I'm that awesome. I kid. Sorta.


I'm Renee and I blog over at This Won't Hurt A Bit. I'm twenty-six. I'm not married. I don't have any kids or furbabies to blog about. I mainly blog about life. The ups and downs and whatever I feel like really. I'm a nurse and usually work in CVICU (Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit). 
And I don't usually wear cowboy hats... only for photo-ops!

I loaded up my car a few months ago, left my job and my home state of Mississippi and decided to give travel nursing a shot. In California. That's ohhh, only about 2000 miles from MS. It was scary as hell but completely worth it. I've been in NorCal since the beginning of June and can't wait to get back to The South. Land of sweet tea and SEC, among other things. :)

Today I want to tell y'all a few things that I believe in.
. . . . .

I believe in never taking yourself too seriously. You need to let the inner child out occasionally.


I believe in taking pictures. Of anything and everything. One day I will be old and senile and need the pictures to remember good times.

I believe you need a best friend who you can tell all your secrets to without fear of judgement.

I believe that ice cream and dessert makes life better. Never skip it. Unless you're diabetic and in that case more for meeee.


I believe in watching television a lot. I might have a slight problem with this one.

I believe that breakups can create some of the worst heartaches ever felt, but if it's meant to be then it will be eventually.

I believe in prayer. No matter how big or small, I believe miracles happen daily.

I believe that live music is the best music.


I believe in wearing flip flops year round. Okay, well maybe not year round but as close as you can get.

I believe that tanning beds give you skin cancer, so instead I am the most pasty white person ever witnessed.

I believe that a cup of coffee and a good meal at your Granny's house make you truly appreciate life.


I believe that a beer or glass of wine or margarita (I don't discriminate.) is best when enjoyed with friends.

I believe in naps as often as you can take them.

I believe that every woman should know how to shoot a gun.


I believe in gift-giving frequently and oftentimes for no reason at all other than to brighten someone's day.

I believe that some days are meant for not changing out of pajamas.

I believe that sporting events are best when actually attended.


I believe that you are never too young to start saving for retirement.

I believe in doing something that completely scares the crap out of you (i.e. moving cross country alone) every now and then. It makes you feel alive.

I believe in traveling whenever you have the chance. No matter where.


I believe in cuddling.

I believe that if you love someone you should say it as often as you can. Everyone needs to hear those three words. Family, Friends, Husbands, Wives... everyone.

I believe that sunsets and sunrises are one of the most beautiful sights on Earth and should be stopped and photographed no matter where you are.


I believe that you should learn from your mistakes.

I believe in forgiving other people when they make mistakes as well.

I believe in taking stealthy pics just for blogging purposes.

I believe in trying new things and taking chances.

And last but not least...
I believe that you should all come and visit my blog. Making friends in the blogosphere is awesomesauce y'all!

  1. I agree with all of these!!! We might have to be friends now because I love shooting guns and she has a picture of Brantley Gilbert and I love him (he doesn't know it but he's my husband)!

  2. Lovely pictures...and she wrote a lot of great things. :)

  3. A traveling nurse? Sounds so exciting! Do they let you wear flip flops in that job? Because that sounds like a deal breaker to me!

  4. I love this! Renee seems like a really sweet girl.
