It's Been Awhile...

How is it already October?? How is that even possible? Time has flown by, and it's been over an entire month since I last posted. School is crazy busy, but I am thriving in the Lord. It's officially fall, and I could not be more excited. This cool weather in NC is amazing. It's in the low to high 60's and on some days it's been in the low 70's, but it really hasn't gotten above 75. I love it. As I type, Mom is making sausage and grits, which I absolutely love. Would y'all like to see more recipes from me? I haven't posted much about food since the banana bread mini muffins. On another note, I have been super busy working on a secret project that will hopefully be released soon! I will keep y'all updated, but this is something that is quite exciting to me, and I hope it will be to you! I also got to thinking about fresh new things to post on the blogsphere. I came up with an idea, but I'll need y'all's help! I was hoping to do a &quo…

New Blog Name??

Hey y'all! So, I've been a part of the the Internet for just over 4 months now (wow, it's really been that long?!), and I'm not a huge fan of the name. It was a last minute decision, as I really couldn't think of anything "creative," so to speak. Y'all have seemed to like it, but I think it may be time for a new blog name. However, I'm still completely out of ideas for names. I need your help! Please, if you can think of a fresh, new blog name, please comment it below. If I have enough of you say that you like "Caleigh's Random Thoughts," best, I will probably keep it, but I'm really hoping for something new. My original thought was to give you a few options for names, and have you vote; however, I really don't have any ideas! Please, let me know what you think! I look forward to seeing y'all's creative names!!

Top 5 Foods in the South

Hey y'all! Time has flown and it's been waaayyyy too long since I last posted. So I'm back, with another fun blog post! As y'all know, I live in the South, which most people can tell right away when they meet me due to my thick Southern accent. I love living in North Carolina, and I truly consider it a blessing. One of the greatest things about living in the South is the food. We sure do have some good food down here! It's so hard to pick, but I have narrowed down the Top 5 Foods In The South.Fried Chicken. This is a go-to in the South. In fact, most people, if asked to name one food that represented the South, would probably say fried chicken. I know I would. I know, I know, it's not the healthiest, but oh wow it's so good!Cornbread. True, this isn't a main dish, but cornbread is definitely sustenance in the South!Casseroles. No matter what type, the South is all about their casseroles, especially at family gatherings. Some of my personal favorites are…

Top 7 Questions Homeschoolers Are Asked

Image
Hey y'all! As most of y'all know by now, I am homeschooled, and have been my entire life. I've gotten A LOT of questions about being homeschooled. This post is meant to be funny, and there is absolutely no shade meant to be thrown on anyone!! Please don't take these too seriously! Here are my Top 7 Questions Homeschoolers Are Asked.1. How do you have a social life/Do you have friends? Surprisingly, I get this one all the time. I really don't understand. Yes, I have friends!! Church is a great way to meet people. If you play sports, there's another way (and yes, before you ask, homeschoolers do play sports.) to meet great people. Also, if you have friends of friends, often times you meet the nicest people that way.

2. Do you get to do school in your pajamas? This has many different answers depending on who you talk to. For me personally, I do not wear my pajamas to school because I have to get up, get ready, and be downstairs to start school by 8:00. But yes, I …

Letting Go

Do you struggle with control? I know I do. As a sixteen year old, the rest of my life seems to loom upon me. I've really struggled these past few months with control. I only have two more years left in highschool, and then what? College? If so, where? What degree? What do I want to do with my life? How will I know what God wants for my life? I'm sixteen, I should really have these things figured out by now. My friends know what they want to be. Why can't I decide? These thoughts swirled around my mind endlessly, giving me no break. Last Sunday night, I was at home watching our church service live on the tv. The church had a guest family there that night. I was moved by their story. He and his wife were told by multiple doctors they would never be able to have children. However, they had 5 biological children and adopted 4 more. Nine children in total, ranging from ages 18 to 6! Then, this family was called to become missionaries in South Africa. So they went. And there th…
