Fill In The Blank Friday

Linking up with Lauren for 'Fill In the Blank Friday'

1. When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is, lay in bed thinking do I really have to get up? Then usually get up and go to the bathroom.

2. I can hardly wait for my weekend planned for my birthday. Going to a brewer game, drinks, going out to dinner, spending the day with some of my favorite people!

3. The quickest way to my heart is Starbucks because it always makes me happy! Hello Chai Tea Latte with extra foam!

4. A little known fact about me is that I share my birthday with Stevie Nicks and Lauren Hill

5. The best part about my job is everyday is a different day.  You never know what's going to happen once you step thru the door. 

6. Something I just couldn't live without is my phone.  I know it's sad but it's attached to me and it would be hard to function with out it!

7. Something useful that I wish I knew how to do is be crafty. I see such cool ideas on Pinterest and there is no way I could reciprocate them! I'm just not crafty!

So happy for the weekend. The hubs and I are babysitting for a coworker of mine on Saturday. The boy is about 15months old. I told Brent it would be good practice for us! He is spending the night. Should be interesting!!

Where would I love to live?

Today I am joining Cole for "3 on Thursday". This week's question is

Sometimes it's fun to envision packing up and moving to a new city/state. Where are three places that you'd consider living?

1.) Boston, MA
My husband and I visited Boston 3 years ago and I fell in LOVE with this city. We stayed there for 4 days and got to see so much and yet not enough! Every time house hunters is on and they go to Boston Brent & I imagine living there!

2.) Orlando, Florida

I've been here once for my honeymoon and loved it. The weather is so nice. The hubs and I always talk about 'when we retire' we are going to live here.

3.) North Carolina

Ok so I've never actually been here (though I do have an Uncle and 2 cousins who live there) but I've heard nothing but 'good things' about the state. I definitely want to visit this state soon!

Where would you want to live?

Linking up with The Little Things We Do

1. Today is a great day because,   I get to paint my nails, yes that is my excitement for the day (working all weekend)  .

Versatile Award

Hello ladies. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I know I did. I'm sad that I have to go back to work tonight :( I wish my job consisted of hanging out with my family!

Anywho...I was nominated my the sweet/funny Victoria for the Versatile Award. I just LOVE this girl. She is one of the reasons why I like to blog. You get to meet such great people! (via blogging of course)

Each Nominee Should:
1. Nominate 15 fellow bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
2. Add an image of the Versatile Blogger Award

3. Thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link to their site
4. Share seven completely random facts about yourself
5. Include this set of rules
6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination

I am going to switch the rules around a smidge. I see many people I blog with have been nominated for this award so I'm not going to nominate anyone because I feel it would be a repeat. So feel free to post 7 random facts about yourself, whenever!

7 random facts about this chick:

1.) I need a fan to sleep. I blame this on my dorm experience because I needed to drowned out all the activity in the hallways when I was trying to sleep

2.) I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters
3.) Every time I get asked, 'What would you do if you won the lottery' my top 2 answers are always a. Pay off all our debt b. Make sure my family was all financially taken care of

4.) I love meat. I realize this sounds really gross but I could never become a vegetarian, I just like steak and hamburgers way to much!

5.) I pray every night before I go to bed. I'm not the most religious person (though I was raised strict Catholic) but I do believe in the power of prayer. I always say I would rather believe in something good then nothing at all.

6.) I love flowers but no NOTHING about them, how to take care of them, how to plant them, etc.

7.) Sleep. Whenever I can take a nap or sleep in, I'm always doing it. Yes I realize I am 25 years old and that some would say that's too old for a nap but I totally disagree. I say if it makes you happy, go for it!!

Happy Tuesday everybody!

Today I am going to tell you a situation that has been bothering. After you read it your going to think, really? But the little things bother me!

So last week Brent and I were outside in the front yard playing with the dogs. Brent went in to the garage to do something and I was still standing outside with my puppies.

The neighbors that live next to me (both our age) have a cute dog named Bella and the neigbors 2 houses down also have a dog.

Heather and Sarah (the name of the 2 neighbors) take their dogs on walks all the time together. Well on this particular night they were coming back from taking their walk and my dog Gracie saw them with their dogs. Gracie LOVES other dogs but when she gets intimidated or scared she barks like no other. And that is exactly what she did. She took off and came right up to Sarah and Heather and started barking.

I immediately ran after her, however I was in my crocs (that's right I own a pair of crocs to take my dogs out. lol) and couldn't get to her fast enough. Gracie kept running around them and I was basically chasing her in a circle. I kept saying 'I'm so sorry' to the both of them. Not once did they stop their conversation or even look at me. I finally got Gracie and picked her up and looked at them. Neither one even acknowledged I was standing there.

I felt like this...

I went in to the house and started crying. My husband asked me what was wrong and I told him. He just said 'there bitches" lol. I wish the girls would ask me to walk my dog(s) with them. We are all the same age. I just feel like a dumb high school girl who gets left out. I wish they would say hey Katie want to come along?

Then we could all be like this...

Ok so maybe I'm being a little dramatic. lol. Luckily the girl Kim across the street is nice enough to talk to us. Her husband and mine get along really well. (sports talk) They have even watched our house for a week when we went to the Bahamas. So at least not all the neighbors hate us.

I realize that this sounds trivial but I just want people to like me. I hate the feeling of being left out. If they don't like me they could at least acknowledge that I'm there!

Top 5 Tuesday

Just Peachy
Today I'm picking the Top 5 places I would want to visit in the U.S.
1.) New York
I would love to go to New York someday. They are so many places I would love to visit there!
2.) Washington
I think that Seattle would be so pretty to visit. Yes I've heard that it rains there a lot but I wouldn't mind.
3.) North Carolina
My uncle lives here and I've always wanted visit. It seems like such a pretty state!
4.) Texas
My husband and I were debating weather or not to go here last year. We decided to go to the Bahamas instead. However I bet there is so much to do in Texas

5.) Maine

This has got to be one of the most beautiful places in the United States! I've been here once when I was younger but I didn't appreciate it for what it was. I could see my husband and I staying at a little bed & breakfast and taking a walk along the coast. Oh I want to go here so bad!
