Sharks-- the reason I hate the beach (OK..not really, but definitely influences the reason, besides the sand that gets in unwanted places, who are we kidding sand gets EVERYWHERE)
The past couple of days Zach and I have had a lot of the day time off, and so we have decided we do not want to spend them cooped up in the apt with our eyes glued on the TV watching brainless shows, so we have made every day an "adventure". We have gone to stores and eaten at restaurant that we never have before, so from 11am to 5pm we have been off going store to store checking out the little hole in the walls that we never discovered in our town. Well today, one of our stops was the Jacksonville Humane Society, BIG MISTAKE, the helpless looks on the puppy and kitties faces as you walked by, broke my heart over and over again. I feel so awful for those poor animals, esp the older cats and older dogs who's owners have given them up, and they are 10 years old. Sigh.. which led to the rest of the day depression and begging of good ole dad to buy me my own apartment so I can rescue the older cats and dogs, he didn't think that was a valid reason to adopt. But if you can adopt, Adopt!!!
I strongly dislike Beer, I always have, when I was a freshman in College and beer was the "cheap" drink, more specifically "Natural Light", I would dread drinking it, who would have thought a whole THREE years later, I have found a beer I love to drink, BUD LIGHT LIME, it is so yummy, does not have many calories and I do not feel like a complete alcoholic sitting here drinking it alone.. Well... I have not done that yet, but if I decide to, then... I wont feel so down on myself.

Now, knock on wood, I have never gotten food poisoning, but I have seen what it does to people and YEESH it is SCARY STUFF!! With Zach having this 24 hour bug, that the lovely Mexicans had not knowingly given to him, has caused for a lot of pain. With throwing up and constant visits to the bathroom, not to mention a girlfriend who is completely convinced he is dying, while she researches what he needs to do to stop some of the stomach pain (i.e. drink lots of water, staying hydrated) it really is an awful thing. Today, Zach text me at work asking for some pep to or Advil anything to help his stomach, now if any of you know Zach you know that he very rarely shows pain, so when he does admit to being in pain, it is very concerning. So hopefully, our night of rented movies and some 7up will help and tomorrow he will be back to his normal self.
Special Thanks to Nurse Kathy:: who talked to me all about what to do, and advice not to mention just talked to me 8 times today, just because I was bored and love talking to me mama. None the less, she loves Zach as much as I do, and also shows care and concern for his well being.
And Zach:: for putting up with my constant "are you sure we don't need to take you to the doctor", and whenever something is wrong he looks a certain way makes a certain face or ANYTHING, I always am saying "should we go to the doctors". I am the concerned girlfriend and definitely his at school mom, who makes sure he eats all his vegetables and eats healthy and drinks lots of fluids, and boy is that boy patient with me. He loves me for my weirdness my over baringness and my crazy concern that happens if he stubs a toe. But I secretly know that if it was me with the food poisoning, he would have taken me to the hospital in concern, he just wont admit it.
Moral of the story, the restaurant stunk and I never want to go there again!
Saturday, August 1, 2009
It helps that I have moved around so much when I was little, but still... Annoying!! Hopefully, Zach and I get a place before second semester and it will be our last move for a while. No more, in and out and time lines! grr.. Off to helping I go
Thursday, July 30, 2009
While, I was in lovely Pleasantville (what I call the city where my cousins live, because well... it is pleasantville, where no one has cable and the "fun" thing to do is go out and play softball, which my cousins and aunt and uncle still in fact do). We tried on a ton of bridesmaids dresses, and... I tried on a couple of wedding dresses and fell head over heals in love with one, it was in this cute little wedding dress boutique, where my older cousin had gotten her wedding dress and my cousin who is engaged also bought her wedding dress from. So, maybe next summer when we go to Ohio for Laurens wedding, I will be engaged and can in fact also get my dress from this cute little boutique.
But, I am glad to be home, and continue on with reality, and prepare for my final year of college.

I needed to send all my relatives picture CD's of our trip, so I go into publix and get the packaging envelopes and am ready to go in the express under 10 isle, when there I see it. JOHN (of john and Kate plus 8), with his new girlfriend COVER of people magazine, OK now editors of People, you think that this family abandoning man deserves anything sort of a front cover is beyond me, especially when there is a whole world of other problems going on, for sorts maybe the front page should be the poor soldier that has been kidnapped and they released a video of him saying how scared he was (that would be a INTELLECTUAL story). This man, who has flown to Paris with his new 22 year old girlfriend to meet with Christian Audigier to jet around on a private yacht while posing for photographers is beyond infuriating. This man, has been an argument amongst my friends forever, i think I have even blogged about it prior. Kate, like I have always said may not have been the best wife, but to have her husband posing on the cover of people magazine talking about how happy he is, and how he never thought he could be this happy, while in the BOTTOM left corner is a ant size photo of Kate outside her home, having a picnic with THEIR 8 kids.
If he wants to go and start a relationship less than 3 weeks after saying they want a divorce, whatever, but he has some GUTS to be posing all over the tabloids with her, rubbing it in every ones faces. I don't even know Kate, and I still want to strangle him. Marriage is not a temporary stage of life, marriage is a commitment forever, and you would think that if he was TRULY committed that he would be a little more heart broken and a little less already smitten with someone else. GET A LIFE, and get off my magazines, your quite pathetic attempt to gain celebrity status is sickening and I will not spend any more of my time acknowledging him.
Please keep Kate in your prayers, though we don't know her side it is quite obvious that her "husband" has abandoned the whole family.
I truly don't understand how anyone could go hungry? Yet, I probably spend at least 80% of my money on food, whither it be groceries or going out to eat, all my money seems to fly out of my purse. Yet, yesterday I had an Epiphany, Zach, ultimate fast food junky, got so excited yesterday because it was Wed, now let me tell you at this point I have already think he has gone complete crazy, then he continues to tell me that Wednesday means... free roast beef sandwiches at Arbys! Now, I am no fast food craze like he is, but FREE MEANS FREE and that's money I would have spent on actual lunch. So we went for lunch and... dinner! And, I spent no money yesterday, then as I watched TV I saw Thursday is Free McDonald's coffee all day, and Tuesdays are free root beer floats at Sonic. Now maybe, if I take-up these nice offers, I will have lots of money to spend on lots of other things and MAYBE I can single handedly raise the suffering economy, by spending money, needless to say after all this free FAST food, I may need to spend that money on a personal trainer or Liposuction, but I had no clue that so many things were given away for free. I am going to eat that fast food, and enjoy every greasy bit of it, you only live once, and I know I don't want to be on my death bed wishing I had that FREE root beer float.
Yesterday, LATE afternoon (7sh) my mom called and we had a normal day to day chitty chat, and she was asking if I had gotten the itinerary she sent me (I am going home August 9Th), then she informs me that if I want to see my girl cousins who live in Ohio before the summer ends to let her know and she will book my flight. So me, realizing Summer= only 4 more weeks, 1 of which I will be at home so that leaves three. So I get on the phone with my cousins, (these are in fact the girl cousins that the middle one is getting married, and I am in her wedding) and they tell me they are going out of town next Friday, so that leaves TWO weeks. So, curiosity kills the cat and I am scouring the Internet for available options, and I came up with few and as if God had planned on me going, a 190 dollar ROUND TRIP flight comes available for... Tomorrow morning! So, having to take advantage of this great bargain, I am booked and ready to leave tomorrow morning until Wed. But in my defense, you couldn't even get a ticket to south Florida for 95$ each way, let alone Ohio, so it is definitely a sign. So, I will be spending my weekend trying on bridesmaid dresses (maybe even sneaking on the occasional wedding dress) not eating till 10 oclock at night, and running around like a chicken without a head (connett fast paced life style).
So, I am off to Pleasentville!!
Tuesday, July 21, 2009
It is that fun elementary school game, where you plot out your future by picking out 5 options for each category (i.e. husband,car,career,honeymoon,kids, pets, city you live, and of course MASH: which means are you going to live in a Mansion,Apartment,Shack, or House, then your friend says start and makes little dashes and depending on how many dashes you have down determine what your future holds) Well, I rediscovered this game on our what was supposed to be 9 hour drive (turned into 11 hour drive) back to Jacksonville. Poor Zach, drove as I nagged him about picking 5 different options for every category, of course when it came to wife, he stubbornly chose "katie, katie z, kaitlyn. kaitlyn marie, kaitlyn z" and to his surprise when it was my turn and my choices ranged from "zach...", and then 4 adorable celebrities that just popped into my head, randomly hehe. But I forgot how fun it is, and what great laughs it is. I found a website where you can actually play it, with the computer (boy, has technology come along way).
Point of this is... the littlest STUPIDEST things, can be so much fun! Stop take in a fresh of air, enjoy the moment and lighten up the mood with a pointless childhood game.
You never believe when your parents say:: enjoy this moment cause time flies when your having fun, and boy does it.. I still can't believe I am about to start my senior year of college and then I have to be a grown up.. I don't even know what I am going to do after a year.. ah! Time to play some childish games like shoots and laders and MASH, and enjoy my blast from the past.
Sunday, July 19, 2009
Let me tell you a little bit about our family reunion, we spent 9 hours getting there, and once we got there it was pure chaos. My Aunt Debbie, sends all 26 to the grocery to pick up 1000$ worth of groceries for the week, considering that is the closest thing to civilization and it is still 45 min away. Every night a family was assigned to a different DELICIOUS meal, and during the days we would take out the 2 speed boats so people could, ski, knee board, or tube and the platoon bloat, for the people who just wanted to relax and float in the water. I did a lot of both, tubing has always been my all time favorite, the rush and unexpectedness of the whole thing. Well anyways everyday, we would wake up have coffee and go out on the boats till around 3-4 come back in for lunch go back out around 5-6 and stay out till 8-9 when we would BEGIN to make dinner. So, needless to say every night was a long night, where we were close to eating each other due to starvation. After dinner, we would all sit around and shit chat and play the occasional drinking game. On Thurs however, big bad Dad, decided he was going to drive the speed boat while my mom and I tubed, (we should have known he was going to try to kill us), we held on for a good long time with an occasional light fall here and there. AND THEN... we hit what seemed to be a TSUNAMI, the biggest of all big waves, we both flew in the air like super hero's, banging into each other and trying to reach the top of the water to breath again. I landed on my back, causing loss of breath not to mention whip lash that I am still paying for to this minute, and my mom practically broke her poor ring finger, that her ring is still jammed on. So my Thur and Fri were extreme headaches and neck aches. But.. that still didn't damper my mood and still come Sat morning when it was time to say goodbye, I still teared up and wanted to start the week over so bad.
My moms family, consists of her 3 brothers, Steve and Debbie who have 3 daughters, Lindsey 25, Lauren 23 (whose wedding I am in) and Hillary 18. Then Brian and Lyn who have Casey 26 and Morgan 22. Finally Gary and Dianne who just have Elisabeth who is 8 and my all time little mini-me through the whole trip. All of the older cousins brought there significant others making it a BIG party. I have grown up, VERY, close to all of my cousins and as we get older we only seem to get closer and closer, so making a yearly trip to all come together is a definite must. Not to mention this year we celebrated Zach's 21st birthday with a Fiesta, My cousins Casey's Wife's Baby shower, and Hillary's Boyfriend Se ans 19Th birthday, So lots and lots to celebrate.
Now you are probably wondering what the "bitter" is about in my title, well let me tell you that I have intense separation anxiety (self diagnosed, of course), whenever I have to say goodbye, I start crying hysterically, and when I have to say goodbye after fun vacations these tears can last up to days (i.e. after Aruba, a full week of crying that it was over). The one person that I really get upset with saying goodbye is my mom, now let me explain its not just a little tear when EVER I say goodbye to her, it is sobbing the whole way home. My mom and I have a great relationship, like I have said many times she is my best friend. I have had so many "best friends" disappoint me but with my mom it is different, she lectures me/nags me/ complains to me/ yells at me, yet she loves me unconditionally. She is like the big sister I never had, we could be fighting one minute and laughing the next. I have always said that my mom is my best friend and if she could she would be my maid of honor. So it is VERY bitter saying goodbye to her, and to all of my family, spending any time away from people you love is sad, let alone long periods of time, when you don't know when it will be again. Not to mention, when I come back to Jacksonville it is just Zach and I, so we have spent a week constantly around people to being alone, especially cause Zach works so much, so eating lunch alone, really stinks.
So now I am home, peeling/with a neck ache and some sort of sun poisoning or something (long story) and SAD!!
Not to mention, I have a grocery list as long as toilet paper role, and 1000 errands to be ran! boo. pity party for Katie!
BUT FOR MORE PICTURES OF OUR VACATION GO TO::::

GOT YA! Bridesmaid!! For the first time, in my WHOLE life, I was asked to be a bridesmaid in a wedding. My cousin Lauren is two years older than me and getting married next summer and low and behold she wants me to be standing next to her. I am so excited, I just cant hide it!! My mom was just talking about how I have yet to go through my close cycle of girl friends getting married. I mean I know older girls that were a year or two older than me get married, but we weren't close or anything. I put the picture of 27 dresses on here, a. because it is a cute movie about how she is a bridesmaid 27 times and b. because hopefully it is the start of something wonderful, BRIDAL SEASON!!
How can one not love weddings, I think there is something so magical about them! I am a very sappy person for those of you who don't know. Whenever, I watch weddings on TLC or anything like that I start crying, not sobbing, but shedding a tear or two. Not to mention as I have said previously that I buy wedding magazines like it is my job. Interesting... Maybe I should be a wedding planner??? Ya right, I don't think Id cry at weddings anymore, I think I would rejoice in the fact it was over. Nope, cant take something that special and make it a career. I hope, I get over this wedding crying thing or I am going to be a HOT MESS at my own wedding..

Well, I bet you all are wondering whatever happened on the Fourth, Did Amanda ever come leave the house, so I could be social again?? YES!! She did in fact leave around 1 o'clock to go to the beach, I came out of my room and yuck! I hadn't noticed the night before because I was so into my sneaking around that the condition of our kitchen was Unlivable! what do I mean by that?? I mean my sloppy roommate Bailey, decided to have people over when no one was there, break a bottle of beer not clean it up,leave all dishes in sink, leave green beans that were in fact growing fuzzy things still on the pot on the stove, and half a eaten pizza covered in ants on the counter. Not to mention here in FL we have a thing called COCKROACHES that do in fact love beer, so there guest appearance in my kitchen was not in any fact surprising. I WAS LIVID, my first instinct was to call mom, I needed a sane woman to tell me that this in fact was disgusting, after that I went to work, bleaching everything (the floor, the counter, the trash can), anything to get the 1 inch layer of beer off the ground and the bugs as far from me as possible. So after I spent all of my fourth cleaning, I discovered a problem... Amanda was going to come back and notice that the apartment was a complete 180, so how was I going to explain that I didn't come home in time to go and get drunk at the beach with all my friends, cleaning fairy?? No, I text ed Amanda saying I was back and soon after received 10000 texts calling me "grandma" for staying and cleaning rather than having a "fun"time with them. But, I didn't care, because after my cleaning and after Zach got back from work, we grilled hot dogs and hamburgers,made my famous buffalo dip, took a long walk through the neighborhood and enjoyed spending my 4Th SOBER with the one person that I love.
Now on-to more important things, this coming Saturday is the man I loves birthday!! Now,if you have been keeping track, Sat we will be in Lake Norris for my family reunion, and with both Zach and Is crazy life, we decided to celebrate his birthday on Sun. Zach wrote all about it in his blog, so I wont go into crazy details, except the fact that Zach's dad came into town today and they are celebrating his birthday and then all of us are going to dinner tonight!! I can NOT wait. 3 Days until we leave for our 8 hour drive to Lake Norris!!
Oh my I almost forgot, I was so excited to find that our "on demand" has workouts on TV it is my NEW addiction, I did a little something called Cardioke last night, yes, it is what it sounds like Karaoke with Cardio. AMAZING. yet Zach and I were tired...ok...EXHAUSTED after just ten minutes. But it was so fun! Who said working out had to be a bad thing??
Saturday, July 4, 2009
But I while I am just lying here..
I decided to upload pictures from when I was in Tampa..
First is a VERY sweaty one of my dad and I at the Pat Benetar concert! My dad isn't smiling though, bah humbag! He was enjoying himself, dont let the picture fool you!
The second is of my friend Amanda (who has me barricaded in my room, when she came to Tampa and we went to the Blue Martini)
The last is one of Zach and I (his new haircut and a new dress of mine, before I went to my great grandmas for dinner)
Do you ever do things, that after you do them you think "wow, you are strange"? Well yesterday I did, in fact I had a whole night of thinking that..
Let me start from the beginning...
Yesterday afternoon I decided the time had come, to come back to Jacksonville. I was so excited cause both my roommates were out of town, so I could just lounge around and be completely lazy and not pressured to be social. WELL....I was half way to Jacksonville when my blackberry went off, it was my roommate Jill who is back in NJ for the summer. She informs me that she is letting a close friend of ours stay at our apt this weekend in her room.
Now before you all think, I am a bitch (pardon my language) let me explain, that when this certain friend is here, all she wants to do is party (which is fine) but a par tier needs a friend (PROBLEM!!) I am not in the mood to party and go out every night till 2am and get hit on by disgusting over the age of 30 guys. Needless to say, I was pretty disappointed, I knew I'd be pressured into going out and when I said no as I knew I would cause I didn't want to go out I'd be labeled "grandma".
So I called Zach and I'm venting about my problems and wishing I had staid in Tampa after all, he invites me to stay at his place (an idea, but I hadn't slept in my own bed in two weeks). So him and I go on our weekly date night and I am mopping around, like a child who's mom said she couldn't have two candy bars. I came up with an idea! I was going to park very far away from my apartment and then BARRICADE myself in my room, and pretend I had staid in Tampa for the night. And that I did, I casually text her around 8pm to see if she was on her way yet, and told her I had staid in Tampa so she'd be alone. When she responded she just left and would be there at 11pm I put my plan into action. I went pee 1000 times and locked myself in my room around 10:45pm, AND IT WORKED.
SMALL PROBLEM THOUGH::: She is supposed to be meeting all of our other friends at the beach for a full day of drinking, so I thought "she'd definitely get up early, shower and meet them down there before the beach got crowded", but its 11:30am,on the 4Th of July, and I am still locked in my room and she her car has still not left the driveway..I am going stir crazy, I want to lay by the pool and relax and now it is a waiting game..
Amanda it is the FOURTH OF JULY,LEAVE ALREADY!!!!!!
moral of the story:: I need my own place ASAP
Happy Fourth Everyone!!
Thursday, July 2, 2009
I decided that I spend 320 days in Jacksonville a year, compared to my house. So, when the lady I babysat told me that I didn't need to babysit due to now, BOTH little girls having ear infections... I decided to stay!! Even though I do indeed miss Zach terribly, I decided that spending that quality time with my parents, was much needed.
So.. on my list of errands that I have been postponing for a week was to go to "Target", why would I delay that wonderful store, that I would go to DAILY, is because I have ZERO money, and I needed to buy Zach a few things. Now buying things for others is fun (don't get me wrong) but its a huge tease to walk past those cute dresses and NOT be able to get anything.
Anyways, today I went, with good reason::: I needed a one piece bathing suit (we are going to Norris Lake in TN for our family reunion, and spend the whole time water skiing or tubing, water sports, and two years ago when we went my bottoms had a couple of close calls during water sports). So, I browsed around and found at least 6 one pieces that would do... I trailed over to the dressing room, thinking for sure I was going to be in trouble for buying so many of them. I get in the dressing room and start trying them on and wow!! I will never ever, wear a one piece, My boobs are too big and it made me seem much heavier then I actually am. Needless to say, I decided losing my bottoms was a much better option then looking 10 lbs heavier then need me. However, I did spend my babysitting money and got two dresses that looked SO much cuter than a stupid, one piece, piece of crap!

I have been PRAISING this whole blog thing, since I have started, I have even tried convincing my closest friends and parents. Yet, they would rather read about my life then have people read about there very own. Yet, after much much begging, and the very fact that now Zach and I are in different areas, I have finally convinced Zach to get a blog.
Now why I wanted this... Zach and I lead very busy lives.. in fact we hardly see each other when we are both in the same place. It seems like our schedules are opposite, so now he can update it on his time and I can update mine on my time and we both know how each others days are going.. Or better yet its a good warning if one of us is having a bad day.
So, as Emily would say, sit back grab a cup of coffee and read all about Zachary Stephen Hosford, the good the bad and the ugly! Hopefully, this can give you both sides to the story and get a better understanding of our relationship and love for each other. So read all about it at.. www.zhosfor.blogspot.com
Have a good night everyone!!
P.s. My amazing boyfriend, has just text me saying he was coming back to tampa, just to spend the next couple days with me before he has to go back to work on Monday. Boy, has God really blessed me. 8 hours driving in a 14 hour span.
P.S.S. after I watched Boy in the stripped pajamas, I watched Fire Proof, and I was obsessed what an amazing and touching movie, today was a good movie day! Go rent both of those, on your next rainy day.. you wont regret it

Yesterday, I made the long 4 hour drive to Tampa, to see my daddy for Fathers Day and visit with the family for a week.
My dad, is an amazing HUGE hearted man, he is the typical big teddy bear and goes about the "you can have anything you want", type of dad. My dad has struggled with jobs, for the past couple years. He has owned the same company in Northern California called Scheduling.com and has also had many other jobs with it. My dad gets bored with jobs, and even though he doesn't need anything more then his company in California, he always seems to pick up jobs, in the hopes of "saving" them, he finds companies who are in desperate need of his help and tries to rescue them. Yet, his self esteem is not real great because for the first time, the company he has put the most effort in, just filled for bankruptcy and unfortunately was un-savable. So, keep him in your prayers because he is really down on himself.
Home has been WONDERFUL, my parents greeted me with a bunch of different types of there favorite wine, and we had our own "wine tasting" in our very own home, and my new favorite (cheap) wine, is called "little black dress" it is a Chardonnay, and very very good. HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TRY IT, IT IS ONLY 10 DOLLARS!!
Zach is back in Jacksonville, working hard. I often feel very sad that he is so far from his parents, I couldn't imagine, not being able to see my parents for 6 months at a time. Let me tell you a little about Zach, he is also 21 years old and a aviation major, with his private pilots license and working on his commercial license. When he is not flying around Jacksonville on small private jets he works as a part time employee at "Zales" jewelry store. I can not wait for Zach to come visit me in Tampa tomorrow to Thur so we can be our goofy selves again. Its hard to be away from him, ya I need I sound extremely crazy, and clingy, but when you spend so much time with someone its hard to make that "goodnight call" or "good morning text".
I'm watching Millionaire Matchmaker (yes, I know you are judging me due to the extremely educational tv programs I always seem to watch) and its sickening how some people are, and how they generalize women so much. This one guy described that he wanted a blond in shape party girl, EXCUSE ME SIR.. what about her intelligence? what about her personality? I may just be angry because I am not blond, but truly I think it is sickening how that's the only thing a guy would say he was looking for.
So, for all of you fellow blogger that don't know about my family I am the middle child of 3, two brothers!! Now, I am very very close to my little brother Steven, and VERY not close to Brad the eldest brother. Steven, got caught with Rum under his bed yesterday, now I don't know who's side to take, Steven who is 18 and caught with alcohol and truly like my other half (I baby him so much, people could swear he was my own child) or my parents who I know only want the best for him and he is underage. I drank underage.. I am not a saint in any way. Yet, its scary when you get older and you know people who have gotten DUI's or in Drunk driving accidents, or even died from alcohol. However, I am NOT his parent, so my choice... STAY OUT OF IT!! that way everyone is not mad at me.
This blog is VERY boring, So Sorry. Home life is just not as exciting as college life.
Oh here is a small piece of drama... I get home in Tampa yesterday afternoon, and I got a new Credit card, so my mom gave it to me, and I go to put it in my wallet and LOW AND BEHOLD .. I left my wallet in Jacksonville. Yes.. I drove 4 hours with no drivers license.. I can not go anywhere now.. luckily with Zach coming to visit, he went to my apartment and grabbed it, So I will be out of house arrest as of tomorrow. :-)
Speaking of getting addicted to things, I am OBSESSED with Twilight (no judgments, I was completely against this Vampire, romeo and Juliet, until I saw it) then I read ALL four of the books in four days. My whole life seemed to be put to a halt. But they are really good, don't knock it, till you see it! and no... blogger people i do NOT believe in vampires.
Another strange addiction I have is BRIDE magazines, they are so fun to look at,all the different choices, I buy them religiously (I guess its better than tabloids a lot of people read). Every time I buy one, I always get aww.. are you getting married. Then I blush.. (blush as in, cheeks get watermelon red with embarrassment) and say "not yet". Oh lord, not to mention every time I bring one home, I am pretty sure Zach has a minor heart attack. hehe poor kid.
no.. I am not engaged, for all of you who don't know, Zach and I have had MANY talks about it, and realized it is best we wait until we graduate in May, to start that next chapter in our lives.
Even though, this blog kinda stinks, I hope you all enjoyed my pictures!!

Oh My!! Well since my lovely friend Emily, made a whole blog about me, I thought I should start this one with a little shout out to her. Even though I think she is the only one reading this.
Emily, is one of those friends that once you talk with them, your whole day is better. I hung up the phone after going 4 years without talking to her yesterday and told everyone about her (my boyfriend, my roommate, and my mom). Do you ever have one of those friends that you feel blessed to have, well that's my Emily. She not only understands and loves my weird personality but we like she said in her blog understand each other, even when I don't think anyone could possibly understand there she is. Not to mention she is such a huge supporter and has never ending advice and love for everyone. The way she talks about her niece and nephew makes me wish that my brothers would have kids, so I could experience that (but any product of Brad or Steven wouldn't be a good thing, unless they married saints). So Emily since I know you will be reading this eventually I braided my hair last night to attempt to have your sisters hair and AH! never again, it was not successful not in the least bit.
Caution::: New Jersey lovers beware::
This is not really fair to say but I have always had something against New Jersey, now I don't know why it is, my two best friends are from NJ one is my roommate. But I think its there out there personalities and there threatening and always on the defense that really turns me away, and makes me think not so highly of them. Well I don't know if I'm wording this accordingly, I guess what I mean to say is they are not very rational. FOR INSTANCES:: my new addiction is Housewives of New Jersey, and first the crazy lady has a book about her a not so good history book about her may I add, and secondly the pretty brunette who is an amazing mother on the show, FLIPS the table. And the nephew says "hey if you haven't flipped a table, you ain't from Jersey." Now I watched this with my roommate, and she found this completely normal, I am pretty sure she compared these people to friends of hers and there parents. I think it must be in the water or something, but us southern people do not flip tables, in restaurants or in our own private homes for that matter.
P.s. if my roommate found out I "blogged" about her she would prob flip the table and go Jersey crazy on me, so lets keep it on the DL.
**Now I really can't run for office, none of Jersey would vote for me, I guess I am prejudice against Jersey.
So I had a personal dilemma today while I was nannying, CAUTION THIS IS GOING TO BE WAY TMI. I am on my period, or "time of month" and I underestimated my flow, now I started to panic due to my lack of supplies in my purse. So I rummaged through the lady I work withs bathroom searching high and low for a tampon. Thank goodness I found one. Yet when I called my mom with that dilemma she was ultimately disgusted that I had "stolen" a tampon from the lady I work with, and she said she prayed that the family didn't have a "nanny cam" yet I seriously don't think anything of it, and when I look back at it, I would have done it over again. WHAT IS A GIRL TO DO IN THAT CASE OF EMERGENCY??
Back to TV shows, I cried hysterically on the MTV show "hitched or ditched" the guys NEW JERSEY family did not want there 28 year old son to grow up, so they forbid him from marrying his long time girlfriend. He had convinced her that he was going to chose her, and they continue with the wedding plans, to only get to the alter where he tells her in front of everyone that he doesn't want to go through with it. HOW AWFUL.. again Jersey people. (ha ha this is all out of my weird sense of humor)
So the cat is out of the bag... Zach knows about my blog, he read it and officially thinks I am weirder than he thought. Today after work we went on a date day (a day we have once a week, to make time for each other during our busy schedules) and we went and saw "the proposal" it was SO cute. I cant even get over how cute it is. RECOMMEND FOR EVERYONE.
I was re-reading this, and I feel like I am talking to myself, or that my thoughts had just written a blog, and am often very surprised at even what I say. If I didn't need therapy before I may now, "hey Katie, how are you?" "good how are you" "good sounds like we had a busy day" YA I definitely need to see someone. Ha Ha.
Every time I end this I think of something else I wanted to write about, so I may be back tonight, go see the PROPOSAL.
Alright so once again, I have decided to further this whole blogging thing.
I think I may be the worlds worst babysitter, why you ask? Well, I arrived here at 8am and the people I nanny for got these super cool blocks that are all different sizes and shapes and you paint them together, well I saw this and my eyes got HUGE! so as soon as I put the kids down for there nap.. there I was, facing the blocks (the good angel told me to step away slowly and start the dishes, yet the bad angel said go for it.) So I dove in, ya real childish of me I know, but it was DEFINITELY worth it.
So I am going home TOMORROW, and though I am so excited there are a few very typical things that happen that I am not so excited about. For instances.. I know my mother has called the whole family (extended included) to come be at my house when I arrive (typical happens every time). The next is strange but routine for my mother, my dads mom will then give me a hug and tell me what a beautiful young lady I have grown into. THEN on CUE as if robotic, my mom chimes in "it doesn't matter what she looks like on the outside, but on the inside", ALRIGHT KATHY I am 21 years old, I know I need to have a good personality also, but let the grandma say her grandma line and let her be. I feel like I may have a slight problem with this, she has annoyed me the past 21 years about it, that when I have kids and people tell them they are pretty I am going to be like "ya they are aren't they, you tell them they are pretty". Ha Ha poor Kathy, always gets teased and I don't even think she realizes saying it anymore.
Do you ever feel like you are a mean person? ya me either. Yet my roommates always tell me that I am mean to my boyfriend, now let me tell you why they think this. I have ALWAYS been stubborn and a little bossy. But that was not something that came over night, it was how I was born, I am very opinionated, and if you do something I don't like I will tell you. So last night I was told that I was mean, because Zach had made some comment (a boy comment if you know what I mean, one that was not thoroughly thought out, just came out as if it had been the lines from some awful brain cell killing guy movie) and I rolled my eyes. Poor Zach, he is such an amazing guy but sometimes his testosterone takes over his mouth and pointless stuff just comes out. But he loves me all the same, I always say.. Zach knew who I am and who I have always been, and fell in love with those traits.
Now another issue I need to touch on just cause I can on this blog::: John and Kate plus 8, MY FAVORITE SHOW IN THE WHOLE WORLD. Yet I am bothered beyond belief when people talk to me about it and explain that Kate DESERVED to be cheated on, PLEASE... I am pretty sure I was speechless and blinked a whole lot, trying to process this deserving to be cheat on. In MY opinion, no one DESERVES to be cheated on, I don't care if they are the meanest person on this planet, if you don't like how your significant other treats you seek counseling OR get separated. I do NOT believe in cheating.
Anyways enough about my tangents, I think this blog is going to ruin any chance I've ever had of running for office, I know this will haunt me, and when I am running they are going to print out this exact entry and say I neglected the children by rushing them to bed so I could play with there toys, or that I emotionally abuse my boyfriend and definitely sexest with my making fun of guys. GRR oh well. I guess I will have to give up my president dreams or my blog, and well... this is way too much fun!!
