it's been over a week since my last post. FAIL!

but tonight i just HAD to tell you about how much i heart target.  seriously, i could live there.  love it.

i found some cute little halloween dodads in the dollar aisle, they hold tealight candles.  a ghost, a witch hat and a jack o' lantern.  and i also got some treat bags. i'm going to fill them up and only give them to the awesome people at work. *evil laugh* no, seriously though, i'll just give them to people that know my name. which is...not that many. :)

kind of annoying, because i think i'm a pretty awesome person.  people should want to know me.  or at least what the heck my name is.

i also got some good stuff for decroating the house on clearance, which i'm super excited to start doing once the roof is done!  that and unpacking. 

yeah, we haven't unpacked everything, what of it?

anouncement, anouncement, annnnooouunnnncement!

so...i admit it...i may have a hard time keeping up this blog. i know i have good reason and all and probably the last thing i need to be doing is this - starting ANOTHER blog! with all the work on the house i'd like to stop annoying you all with my house posts so i'm starting up a HOUSE BLOG! just so friends and family (that's YOU!) can see the progress of the house. or you can read my boring life posts here, at catie and co.

so head on over here if you're interested...but i'll keep my ramblings to this blog!

oh, the irony...

you know what i'm doing, like right now. like right this very second. we're talking RIGHT NOW as i type this?

i'm watching biggest loser (hello...my name is catie, and i'm addicted to reality television...) and eating ice cream. how SICK is that? totally twisted, right?! i should probably stop and go work out, but it's like a train wreck.

i. just. can't. stop. watching. it.

on a side note: i'm so glad daniel is back. that kid is so inspirational.

maybe i should use some of that inspiration and go to the gym...after i finish this...

blessings in disguise

do you ever just have things that make you uber happy for no explainable reason? they just happen and you don't even know you are grinning like a maniac?

for example, i know a lot of women love chocolate. i'm not one of them. WAIT!! hear me out! i LIKE chocolate, but i don't love it. i, personally, am not willing to give up calories on it. i'd rather have chinese food. or french fries...mMmMmMmmmm...french fries....

but i digress.

the point of my post is this; here are five random things that have made me totally and completely happy for no apparent reason whatsoever in the last couple of weeks.

5. k waking me up in the morning. i am NOT a morning person, but at least i have someone to wake me up now. nelson wasn't so great at it. he is kind of lazy, like his momma. :)
4. fall. anything and everything about it. totally my favorite season.
3. ksu football season. even if we suck, i still love it. ksu people really know how to throw a tailgate. and this, obviously, goes hand in hand with fall!
2. playing with my dogs. they love me unconditionally and are always there to cheer me up.
1. fitting into an old pair of pants that didn't fit three weeks ago, even though i haven't changed my diet at all. if anything it's been worse! roofing must be making me buff.

what makes YOU happy?

ps - main reason i don't LOVE chocolate: it gives me migraines when i have too much of it.

postsecret of the week

dear god, i hope this is a joke.


i really try not to get into the whole political and religion thing on this blog. because...well...i really hate it when people try to convince me that they are better than me, just because they go to church every weekend or because they vote a certain way. i like discussions, but just hate it when people get all up in my face and try to force their beliefs onto me. in fact, i love discussions. i think it's the best way to weigh your choices and make good decisions. i love to hear others opinions, as long as they don't expect me to automatically agree with them. i'll listen, and weigh my opinion and decide if i agree with you or not. end of discussion.

so, to reiterate. i hope this is a joke, i'm not trying to force my beliefs on anyone by this post, and please don't judge me by assuming this post means i'm trying to create trouble.
