valentine happy

February 10, 2011

typically i’m not fond of february 14th.

too much red {my color liked least} and too little spontaneity.

hunky and i choose to celebrate everyday as valentines rather than designate one silly day.

{pause for involuntary gag}

but just in case,

this one wacky year (oh those silly rabbits),

let’s just say hunkiest couldn’t bear the thought of his bride going gift-less, this day of lovers’ sweet.

i’ve compiled a list {websites included honey} to guide him into gifting.


dreams caught and evil spirits thwarted with my  pretty new pendant.


my inner alice in wonderland forever quenched in the high back cushion of a new chair.

navy and black. my new favorite combo bite. a side of sequins for dipping.


strappy stellas for stomping and romping ’round town.

a second stalactite for all of my costume changes. romping and stomping can get a girl a sweaty y’know.

no fancy words or pleas here, other than…..i’m out of my perfume baby.

doesn’t matter if i don’t have anywhere to where it. what matters is that it becomes mine.

doesn’t hurt to ask.


in the end, if there are no bows to untie, no champagne to sip, no new pups to potty;

i cry stupid, ugly, re-united with your long lost sister you never knew you had, tears, at how lucky i am to have this man by my side. it truly is valentines day around here all year long.

the presents have already been opened.

Simple Things

January 27, 2010

christina is hosting the simple things today.

a call out to bloggers to “show what we appreciate, and what we are grateful for – no matter how big or small, these things may seem.”

if christina asked me to dig ditches with her all day long in the hot sun, i’d be the first to sign up.

in an effort to help the haiti rescue and rebuilding, she is giving one dollar to doctors without borders for every participant.

thank you christina for inspiring me daily. here is my laddleful of love to you:

katie’s simple things 1/27/2010

freshly scented, french milled soap

clean, empty notepads. ready for my days’ plans, ideas, and aspirations.

homemade morning coffee. french pressed with ground cinnamon. a mug reminding me what matters most.

waking up in the middle of the night holding hands with hh.

fresh, inexpensive, trader joe’s flowers on my desk

our sweet tree standing tall again. post storm destruction. so glad we were able to keep you in the family.

peanut m& m’s, and don’t you dare try to substitute plain!!!!!!

profanity. terrible, i know. i’m a good girl otherwise. i just like to swear.

perfume before bed, after my bath.

afternoon naps.

mornings. the promise. the second chance.

this song…….it renders me tear faced every time i hear it. but happy, oh my god, i’m so damn lucky kind of tears.

it’s hard to have animosity in your heart with this music in your soul.

i’d love to twirl on fence posts with you,  na-na-na’ing to this song.

happy wednesday. love, katie
