Kate's Dream

Any of you heard of a little movie called The Man From Snowy River? No? Well let me fill you in. This movie is one of the best movies ever made. I know, I know, you've never seen it on any Top Movies of All Time lists by the "Professionals" but they don't know much. So there.

First off it's about Australia. Sure fire winner right there. Secondly it's about horses and rugged, virile men chasing said horses through the bush. Thirdly it is a beautiful love story with a great kiss atop a mountain. That right there my friends is a recipe for success.

I was sure i was going to marry Jim when i was younger. I just loved him. Loved? LOVE! Let's face it, I would still marry him.

This post was inspired by my blog-friend Bush Babe. Her post this morning actually made me tear up!!! Egads Kate. You have to head over there and read the poem she posted about The Man From Snowy River. She also posted a great clip from UTube which i will post below.

The Eagle & The Hawk

1. Put your iPod on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS!

(i actually wrote down numbers 1 thru 24 on a separate paper and wrote the songs there so i couldn't see the questions till after.)

Also, I have 451 songs on my little nano. You'd think the shuffle would've diversified a bit more.

Hangin' Tough

It really stinks when you are working so much you have no time to blog! What is the world coming to when a girl can't spend all her time blogging.?!?

The one thing that has kept me going this week is the AMAZING concert i went to last Saturday night.

Ready for this?

NKOTB!!!! AHHHHHH!!!!! WHOOO!!!!!!!

For those of you not In The Know, NKOTB stands for New Kids On The Block. Yes that's right, you heard me, New Kids On The Block. Rock On!

Items:
  • the "Kids" are now all in their 40's
  • they grab themselves a lot now (?!?!?!?)
  • they have backup dancers (strippers)
  • they where a lot of sequins, chains, and bling
  • they like fans (the kind that blow air...like MJ)
  • their new music is REALLY bad
  • THE TICKETS WERE FREE!!!

It was one of the funniest things i've ever seen. First off it was a huge crowd, sold out, and the crowd was chock full of moms. A lot of people were dressed just like the concerts was in '89. Huge buttons, hats, band t-shirts, day-glo, tights. It was awesome. There were a lot of teenagers there and they new all the words to the Natasha Beddingfeild songs. Once NKOTB came out they were pretty silent. It was then OUR time! I was having major flashbacks singing Hangin' Tough, Cover Girl, Step by Step, Please Don't Go Girl, The Right Stuff...

Then they started singing their new stuff. We left soon after. It was weird. They were trying to be all sexy and young but weren't pulling it off. Jordon did a solo where there was a fan on him and a spotlight and he had on a white button up shirt that was unbuttoned and blowing off. I havn't laughed so hard in a long time, maybe not the response he was looking for. Hmmm.

Sorry, i took these on my iPhone. No zoom. But you get the idea.

This is us looking very...something, during Jordon little strip tease.


Here are some more. I can't even describe it in words...





I know you are all very jealous. I recorded some of the concert on my phone if you need a little NKOTB fix.

Ahhh. Beautiful and on sale over at Urban Outfitters. Hello Lover! indeed.

I know, i know, it's a sickness.

Laugh Out Loud!

Is anyone else very very very happy that the election is over? I'm so tired of politics. I need a little break from them. And so do you!

I give you...LOL Cats ('laugh out loud' for you non-texters).

Okay, i'm a dork, i know it, but this site cracks me up. I check it everyday and it just makes me happy. You will notice that nothing is spelled correctly...that is part of the charm. Just go with it. Here are a couple of my favorites:








So i decided to try my hand at captioning an image. I started slow, not super funny, very predictable. I'll work my way up.

But i need you all to vote for it so it's shown on the site!! Just click here. Thanks. Oh. Here is the one i did. Love it? I know. It's AWESOME!

Two Year Olds

Do any of you know a two year old? My niece is two and she melts my heart.


On Saturday we were all at the parents house working in the yard...well Emmy wasn't, she was entertaining us.

At one point she walked up to me, wrapped her chubby little arms around my neck, laid her head on my chest and whispered in her sweet little voice...

"I'm laying on your boobs."

I gave her a big hug, said " I love you Emmy" turned around, and laughed until my stomach hurt. Ahh, the things kids say.

What are the funniest things you've heard a kid say?
