About Me 2011

Hello there! Thanks for finding your way to my little blog.

I AM : Kate, 26. in love. a kitty momma. always trying to find the balance. (between laziness and activity and crafty goodness and dreaming and laziness.) a home owner. an occasional list maker. a clutter bug. a KatyBug. a film programmer. an office professional. almost always inspired.

I LOVE : Matt, my family, my friends, LAUGHING, thunderstorms, having all of my clothes clean on one day, food and drink, bodies of water, trying to get fit, TELEVISION, blog reading, traveling, book reading, my yard {some days}. color.

I BLOG : about the things I love and the things I am, occasionally, when inspired or prompted, and you can see the full list at the bottom of the page. FIVE descriptive words I picked for my blog are : lists, love, nerd, wishful, random (listed here)


  All photos from my blog, it's like a scavenger hunt.

weekly rundown

i thought i might do a fill in the blank post again this week but Lauren and family are welcoming little miss Fern Winter. i wasn't so sure about the name Fern, not that it matters at all, but with the middle name Winter, well i just love them together. congrats!

just three pictures this week via instagram... linking up with Jeannett at Life Rearranged

so how was your week? i'm not sure where mine disappeared to, but i'm thankful it's the weekend! i need some sleep. i started reading The Hunger Games, and i've been reading it in to the late hours of the night. it's so hard to put down!

my boys

i'm debating whether i should invest some mulah in elise's blog 2.0 workshop. i got really geeked about the idea at first, but then i started to debate if learning wordpress design would actually improve my blogging direction (skills, regularity. "mission"). i need to keep considering this. i need to decide if i want to actually be a blogger or just enjoy blogs from an outside perspective.

packing up christmas last weekend.
just over 300 days until it's to unpack it all!

i am on pinterest. finally. i played around with it tuesday night. i'm excited to use it collect all the blog posts and beautiful images i've bookmarked over the last two and half years, or so, in a more visual way. and also revisiting those bookmarks to see what may be projects i'll actually do! do you pinterest? is pinterest a verb? have you found lots of images with no original source? in my first 10 minutes i found two.

smitten kitchen does it again, yummm!

a reaction from the oatmeal to SOPA/PIPA.
how cute would this little plant be for a vday gift. they have a hot stuff one too, hehe!
i love this dress, The Dainty Squid: what I wore; a modern little red.
two gems from meg this week.
pretty food.
you can always count on Bright.Bazaar for some great color!
BASIL. PESTO. HANDMADE. ah, kinfolk. you're delicious. it's far, far to long before we have any basil that looks like that that can be made into pesto. i've only ever made pesto in the food processor, so i'm kind of excited to try this.

King said in an interview that this photograph was taken as he tried to explain to his daughter Yolanda why she could not go to Funtown, a whites-only amusement park in Atlanta. King claims to have been tongue-tied when speaking to her. “One of the most painful experiences I have ever faced was to see her tears when I told her Funtown was closed to colored children, for I realized the first dark cloud of inferiority had floated into her little mental sky.”

life, cats, blanks, linking up.

& for the first time with 
via miss lisa. 

1.   The last thing I ate was delicious leftover pasta that Matt had made last night. It's a variation on his chicken, sundried tomatoes, artichoke pasta that I was so afraid to try the first time and now I adore. He subbed sausage for the chicken because that's what we had. mmm mmm mmm.

2.   The last song I listened to was the last song on this playlist from meg. I've listened to this quite a few times. My favorite song of course is this.

3.  Using the letters in my name I can spell ate, take, at, eat, teak. KATE

4.  If I had to dress in one color for the rest of my life I would pick  probably blue or black. maybe purple..

5.  If you were to look in my bag right now you'd find wallet, gum, iphone, notepad for lists, receipts and coupons, lists, a ticket from the Grand Rapids Griffins game, touch screen gloves from Matt in the best limey mustard color.

6.  When I finish filling in the blanks I'm going to go home for the weekend! Ah, the first full week of work back after a long break is so rough. Ready for this weekend!

7.  My all time favorite song to dance to is oh probably something very 90's and very high school dance-y.

and now for:

life rearranged

 our newest picture from the hockey game

this cat looks like this, always. she is ridiculous.
 it took me forever to read this book. i'm not even sure i liked it.
bacon chocolate, yes please. it's delish.
my lovely package arrived from melissa. love it!
i plan to share what i received over the weekend!
but seriously, that cat paper cutting - you know it's going to be good!

Craving: a bloody mary Seeing: SNOW Loving: snow, matt, sleep, the kitties, the weekend

Mindy Gledhill

You know that pretty Winter Moon album that's been floating around, well apparently she, Mindy Gledhill, doesn't just do Christmas music. lucky us!

I'm loving this song after hearing it on a DVRed episode of Bones last night.

And this one is just adorable as well. I'm swooning.
