I'm sooo sorry I haven't been as active as I should be! I've been soo busy since Florida that I just haven't had time to write nor draw and I HATE IT! I know I said in my last post that I would be posting regularly, but I didn't know I was going to be so crazy busy. Not cool, I know!
Anyway... the other day, the BF and I took a trip to NY state. First, I must say that I am in love with NY state.. I hate NYC! It was raining all day, so we decided it would be fun to take a drive to do some shopping. We figured we'd go to some little shops and then meet up with a friend at Palisades Mall, which if you don't know what that is... it's a huuuge mall in NY state. We got to the first shop without any problems, considering that we hadn't ever been there. I stepped out of the car and walked through the rain to the store's entrance. Little did I know that the entrance was down some stairs. Can you guess what happens next?
Yea, I busted my @$$! I slipped and took a nice fall down the stairs. And... well... now my butt hurts! Once I got up, we walked around the store for about 10 minutes, then I decided I just wanted to go straight home. No mall for me....
If you don't know already, I'm a cookie monster! I love all types of cookies and I don't go a day without thinking about them. I know that's pretty sad, but it's very true. If I don't think about cookies, I think about chocolate which in the end leads me to chocolate chip cookies - they're obviously my fave.
The past week, I've been craving chocolate more than usual (gee, I wonder why). So I picked up a box of chocolate chip cookies and put them in the shopping cart while the BF wasn't looking. We got home, unpacked all the groceries and that was when he finally realized that I had bought an entire box of cookies for myself - I really wasn't planning on sharing. That night went by... I had two cookies. The next night went by... I had three cookies. The next night, I told myself that I needed to lay off the cookies for a night. Well, they were staring me right in the eyes! They looked so tasty...
I forced myself not to give in to those beautiful, delicious cookies. Fortunately, for once, it actually worked - I didn't have a single cookie, but boy were they in trouble last night!
That's right! I nommed on not just one, but three absolutely delicious chocolate chip cookies! .....And boy did I enjoy it!
Soo I'm sure everyone has seen a local car dealer commercial, right? Well, I personally cannot stand them! I'm not kidding when I say I want to scream every time I see one...
As a graduated marketing major, I know for a fact that the people making these commercials are complete idiots! I'm sure they just took the idea of the vice president of the company and went with it. Either way, the VP should have some kind of business and marketing background, but from the looks of these commercials, it looks like he went to Clown College (literally).
The one I saw today that made me write this was probably one of the worst ones I have seen. Here's a little taste of what it looked like:
The VP was dressed up in a clown costume while the GM was dressed in a cowboy costume just telling people to buy their cars. WTF is wrong with these people? Honestly, I don't even remember which car dealer the commercial was advertising... that's how bad it was!
Worst commercial ever! Well... worst car dealer commercial EVER!
Okay, so I know it's been a while and I'm so sorry. I have seriously been the laziest person since I got back from Florida on Monday, but from now on I think I'll be posting regularly :)
Anyway... we had sooo much fun in Florida and we can't wait to go back - we're really thinking about moving there. While we were there, the BF and I spent a lot of time fishing. We caught a whole lot of fish, obviously we released them right away. We fished all day for the first 3 days until we were rudely interrupted by a nasty catfish. By nasty catfish, I mean a SPIKY catfish!
Catfish apparently have really sharp fins on their sides and back. And... well... the BF got stuck by one of them!
Of course I freaked out because... well... it went right through the top of his knuckle! His finger swelled up - basically it was double the normal size.
Finally, the BF's finger is now back to normal size and feeling better. We're just thankful that it wasn't a serious injury. It could've been worse... but we're so happy it wasn't.
Almost 2 years ago, my second cousin got married and of course I attended the wedding. As most of you know, I'm not really a girly-girl, but when I have an event like this to attend, I dress appropriately. In this case, it was a very formal wedding in a beautiful ballroom type event space - marble floors, a gorgeous outdoor garden, an indoor waterfall type thing, etc. It must have cost a small fortune to have that wedding!
Anyway... I knew about the wedding a few months in advance and I also knew that I didn't have a formal dress that I could wear to the wedding. Well, the day before the wedding, I still had not purchased a dress! Obviously this led to hours of dress shopping. I may not be the girly-girl type, but I am a very picky person when it comes to clothing (especially when it's an occasion that requires me to look pretty and formal). Surprisingly, about an hour later, I found what seemed to be the perfect strapless dress. I bought the dress and a cute pair of shoes and that was all I needed.
I was ready to have a wonderful time at a beautiful wedding - or so I thought.... The BF and I arrived at the wedding all handsome and pretty - him in his suit, me in my "perfect" dress. We were sitting at the reception tables for most of the day, but then the bride and groom decided they wanted everyone on the dance floor. Well, not only am I an inexperienced heels-walker, but apparently I'm also an inexperienced dress-wearer. I stood up without noticing that I was stepping on the front of my dress, started walking, and... well... you probably know the rest.....
My dress had fallen and my boobs were exposed for all 250 wedding attendees to see! I quickly pulled the dress back up, but I was so embarrassed that I had to leave the wedding immediately following the incident. I didn't know who, if anyone, actually saw what had happened, but I had to leave immediately! I couldn't believe what had happened, but lesson learned: strapless dresses are EVIL!
Okay, so I know this is Florida, but DAMN it is hot! When I was here in April, it was not as hot as it is now - it's about 90 degrees outside and feels like 100. That is not my kind of weather, but I'm dealing with it of course.
We've been spending most of our time by the pool, but that doesn't really cool us down considering that the pool itself is 90 degrees. Yes, I said 90 degrees!
Basically, it's really hot! Soo anyway, here's a few photos I wanted to share:
Soo this past weekend was actually pretty decent. The BF and I ended up going to a family BBQ at his grandmother's on Sunday, which turned out to be a lot of fun. The weather was perfect - in the mid 80's and sunny - and... well... it was just a good time for all of us!
The BF and his family played croquette for hours - yes, of all the games they could play, they chose to play croquette (weird, I know, but it looked like they were having tons of fun and I have to admit I had fun watching!). We were all outside way past when the mosquitoes came out - basically until the sun went down. Well, that was Sunday.
Monday night, I was just laying around when I started to feel a little itchy. It wasn't just in one place either - it was a bunch of different places all over my body. I was wondering what the heck could have caused the itchiness. Then I remembered... I was outside with mosquitoes all night the night before! I thought that if I had any bug bites, I would have noticed them Sunday night. Well, I guess not because I sure was itchy as hell! ... and not just on my legs either. Those damn mosquitoes got me right on the @$$! TWICE - one on each cheek!
Of all the places I could have gotten bit by these mosquitoes, I didn't think my butt was one of them! It's not like I was butt-@$$ naked or even wearing shorts... I was wearing capris! Damn mosquitoes!
Some of you may know that my family has a vacation home in Florida. Well, that's where the BF and I will be less than 24 hours from now! We'll be waking up at 5:30am (yuck!) to catch an 8am flight and we will arrive in Florida around 10:30am. Soo basically this is what we'll be doing tomorrow morning:
Sorry for the squiggly lines! I'm nervous for some reason. Anyway... we'll be there until Monday, but don't worry because I'm pretty sure I'll still be blogging since I'll have my laptop and wi-fi internet access at the house. I'm going to try spending as much time as possible outside working on my tan by the pool and fishing, but it's supposed to be in the upper 80's and scattered thunderstorms the entire time we're there, so I may spend some time inside.
The last time I was down there, which was in April, I didn't get to see a thunderstorm - we didn't even have a single drop of rain! This time, they're predicting scattered showers and storms while we're there, so I'm really looking forward to seeing a good thunderstorm.
Soo that's what I'll be doing this weekend! I just wanted to let everyone know in advance since I may or may not be blogging (most likely I will). I'm soo excited! Florida, here I come!
I'm a very self-conscious person - I'm always worried about what other people think of me. I know it's wrong and I shouldn't worry so much, but I do. It's not that I'm not myself (believe me, I'm myself), it's just I think and worry way too much.
I'm much too lazy to do my hair and makeup every morning, but that doesn't mean I don't care about the way I look. I always try to look presentable no matter where I go - this just means I don't leave the house looking like a complete mess. So obviously since I don't do my makeup every day, I never really see my face close up.
Anyway... getting to the point - the BF and I were just lounging around the house one day last week when he started sweetly rubbing my cheek. Well, it turns out that he somehow found a hair! No, this is NOT a normal occurrence and I do NOT have facial hair - I'm 22 damn it! He realized that this wasn't just any hair though... it was a monster hair!
At least it was blonde! Anyway... I told him to try pulling it out, so he did and I let out a nasty scream because seriously, this thing was about 2 inches long (wtf?)! Don't ask me how it got there or that long because I have absolutely no idea. I quickly ran to the bathroom, grabbed my handy-dandy tweezers, and plucked that baby out like a mofo! Be gone monster hair - and please never come back!

Soo the BF and I were super bored the other night. We sat around for about an hour discussing possibilities of things to do....
..... without any real outcome as you can see!
(I don't know why I'm squatting - sorry about that)
So in an attempt to make our boredom a little less torturous, the BF decided to play a game with me. That game was make Katie into a marionette.
Okay, maybe I didn't mean it literally, but what happened was the BF grabbed hold of my feet while I was laying on my back and started waving them around in the air (like he just didn't care - yea, sorry, I had to do it). He was actually having a great time and I couldn't have been laughing harder. I think it was a fun night after all! .... Seriously, how lame are we?
The BF was sick all last week with a nasty cold which led to the bronchitis he has now. Fortunately he's feeling a heck of a lot better, but still has a small cough. Anyway... the entire time he was sick, I wanted to make things easier on him. He was stuck in bed for a couple of days with really nothing to do but watch TV (not that he doesn't love TV), but to make things worse the TV schedule was just horrible! It seemed like every channel he turned to had absolutely nothing decent on to watch. Finally, he resorted to putting on a movie we had lying around the house.
Besides trying to make his in-bed experience better (boy that sounds dirty; it's not meant to be) I wanted to make things easier on him when we had to run a few errands - so he wasn't getting off the hook entirely. I figured I would be nice and decided that if we wanted to go out anywhere, I would drive.
Now, I never drive - I hate driving! I've had my license for about 5 years now, but I only drive when I have to; for instance, if the BF has a few drinks at the bar, of course I drive (neither of us are that stupid)! But like I said, this week was different since he wasn't feeling well. Unfortunately though, this is what I had to deal with the entire time I was driving last week:
Okay, maybe I exaggerated the situation a little bit, but I guarantee you that's what he was thinking. And either way I'm seriously starting to believe that he really doesn't like my driving...
Have a great weekend! & Don't forget to enter the Giveaway for 175!

Okay, so there are so many memories I have of my college career. But one thing I remember more vividly than others...
The BF and I attended college together - by together I mean we took every single class together for 4 years straight. I know what you're thinking you're both out of your damn minds, right? Well, somehow it just worked for us. Some of our classes we took online, but most were on campus. We would try our hardest every semester not to take early classes, which for us meant any earlier than 11am. Well, unfortunately there were a few semesters that we were forced to take 8am classes (yuck!)
8am classes meant that we had to wake up around 7am (even more yuck!). Now, at 7am the BF and I obviously aren't truly functioning human beings - we're barely conscious! So we would get out of bed, brush our teeth, grab our things, and we'd be out the door. However, I specifically remember one day that I must have been less awake than normal. We started off our day the same as usual, sat down in the classroom with all the other students and waited for class to start. As we were waiting, I reached into my purse to grab a piece of gum for myself and guess what I found and pulled out instead??
My television remote control! Every student was looking at me like I was some weirdo! I was so incredibly embarrassed, but I got over it quickly and everyone just had a good laugh. I told you I was less awake than usual!
As some of you know, I'm holding a giveaway (Giveaway for 175). I'm not only giving away a $25 Visa gift card, but it also comes in a handmade card that was in fact made by myself.
Now, first let me say this: I like to collect hobbies - some I'm good at and some I'm, well, not so good at. So over the weekend I was thinking of a neat way to be creative and personalize the gift card for the giveaway. I decided that I wanted whatever it was to be pink, black, and green of course, but that's all I knew at that point. So I searched the internet for all different ideas for gift card holders and wrappings when I stumbled upon a simple envelope. Then it came to me... I knew exactly what I wanted to do and that was to make a card with an envelope as the gift card holder. No more than 5 minutes later I approached the BF with this idea and his response was: "You're kidding, right?!" Well, no, I wasn't kidding and the next morning we were up and out the door to AC Moore for some paper. I got all my supplies, got home, and started at my new hobby.
I was looking at all the papers that were in front of me thinking about what exactly I wanted to do. The BF was staring at me. Next thing I knew these were the words that came out of his mouth: "Look at that hamster go!"
The BF thought I didn't have a clue what to do with the papers! Anyway... I won't bore you with all the details, but about an hour later I was finished and guess what?! - I made my very own envelope and card with my own hands! Yes, this was my very first attempt at paper crafting, and I think I did a pretty darn good job if I do say so myself! I think I may have some natural paper crafting talent... or not - who knows.
Don't forget to enter my giveaway to win a $25 Visa Gift Card!

Okay, so I've noticed that most of us that follow blogs here are females. With that being said, I have a question for all of you. If you could be anything for just one day what would it be??
I've thought about this for many, many years... You would not believe how many things I have come up with, but it's always that one thing that comes back every time. I'm almost positive all of you reading this have thought about the same thing at one time or another, so here goes....
If I could be anything for just one day I would be a guy! - Not it a weird way. Now, I'm not saying I want to be a male forever in any way, but seriously, I just want to know what it's like to be a man... and everything that comes with it! I mean there is just so much that we don't know as girls and it kind of bothers me. Maybe I'm just weird, but I really am curious to know what it's like to be a dude! Honestly, even though I would want to do this, I think I'd be a little freaked out if it actually happened.
Am I weird? Have you thought about this too? Anyway... think about this... if you could be anything for just one day, what would you be???
P.S. I will make my special announcement tomorrow instead - Please be sure to check it out!
