get through this week

alright so i had off of school today but i go back tomorrow. ew, it's going to be terrible to go back after that long 6 day weekend. plus i have those 2 quizzes and a test to make up which will probably happen tomorrow :/ oh well - i actually have a very busy December! so if i can just get through each week, i have fun weekends to look forward to and then, huzzah! it's Christmas!

but here's a song i heard today. i was listening to my Demi Lovato Pandora radio ( and came across this song - Breathe Me by Sia. and i was listening to it and thinking "where have i heard this before??" and then i remembered it was from the movie Cyberbully! then i couldn't stop listening to it. it's a great song in general, plus in the movie this song plays during the climax! if you haven't seen it, you must. it's such an amazing and powerful movie!

so good.. right?! ok for right now i'm telling myself that i'm going to try really hard this week. 4 day week, Katie! no slacking! (we'll see how this goes)

link love

mustaches from here

here's some things to check out!

i don't really get on flickr that often just to look around. i usually just get on to upload my own pictures, then get off - but i was looking through this photostream, and it's so good! i think i favorited like 20 of them

you can listen to Hot Chelle Rae's new cd before it's even released here! (what i've been doing non-stop)

i can't wait to see {av}'s next Friday Fancies theme!

i need to make these. they look so delicious!

you should look at my 3 beautiful friends Tumblr's! Abby - Arms Open Wide Jennette - In My Mind Maryellen - Open Up Your Eyes

i also really want nude-ish colored lip-gloss like this MAC Lady Gaga lip gloss!

have you seen the trailer for The Artist? it's so cool! it's a silent movie that takes place in the 1920's. a silent movie! i can't decide if i would like it or not, but the trailer looks pretty crazy.

Friday Fancies: Black Friday

there is this blog called Long Distance Loving by {av} and every Friday she does a thing called Friday Fancies with a theme! i've seen other bloggers do it as well and i don't know why i'm just doing it now. it's something fun to do on a Friday! when she gives you a theme, you just Polyvore the outfit to go with that theme and you have your dream outfit for that occasion! cool right?!

so here's mine for Black Friday. if i were to do this last year, i probably wouldn't have done this outfit because this was really the first year i actually went Black Friday shopping. i have to say, i loved it! i didn't wait in line for hours, i just went mid day (and met up with Jennette and Maryellen who i haven't see in soo long!) and it wasn't crazy or anything, and the sales were fantastic!! i also didn't buy anything for myself! just Christmas shopping. but let me tell you my favorite purchase - i got my dad a sweater that was originally $50 and i got it for $15!! so good!!

anyway, here's just a stylish out-and-about outfit i put together, and i would SO wear it! i think it's a good shopping all day outfit, and also meeting up with friends. plus today it was about 65 degrees, so maybe even without the blazer! yes?

hope you had a fantastic Black Friday! do you shop or stay at home?

Happy Thanksgiving!

i am thankful for far too much

and i'm ready for dinner.

Wednesday, November 23, 2011


today i went to The Christmas Tree Shops and saw this really pretty picture of the New York City skyline for just $8!! but of course i want to save my money to buy Christmas gifts for people, so i didn't get it and my mom didn't get it for me either haha so maybe for Christmas? hopefully though, because it was just so simple, but beautiful to look at!

all from here

couldn't you look at pictures of city skylines forever?!

hello Tuesday a.k.a. Friday

more rain here - ooooof course. i like hearing the rain on the roof and stuff and it get's dark here at like 5, so what else can ya do? no problemo.

so tomorrow we have a half day and usually every year on the day before Thanksgiving i don't go to school and the fam and i go out to breakfast - and that's what we're doing this year! but this year i feel kind of... guilty? because i have 2 quizzes tomorrow and my one teacher pushed her test forward to tomorrow now too. so now i'm going to have to find time to make up 2 quizzes and a test. it's whatever - tomorrow i won't even be thinking about it and then it will be Thanksgiving!! so yay!

and then (Black) Friday i get to take a road trip with my friend (to outlets) to FINALLY see my friend, Jennette, who i haven't seen in literally forever!!! i'm TOO excited!! so fun!!

hahahah tooo funny!

and THIS. so funny! (and 1:46) hehe BEST NEW ARTIST WINNERS BY THE WAY!

Christmas time in New York

ahh Christmas in New York is SO pretty!! i want to go so badly! i went there for the Christmas Show Spectacualr when i was about 8, so i have been there around the Christmas time, but of course i was too young and didn't take any pictures or anything (haha) so it's kind of a bummer because i totally saw that tree in person!

it's just so... perfect. i don't know, i can't really thing of the words. you know what i mean.

34 days until Christmas!! ...oh wait - we still have Thanksgiving?

an ode to the boys

i wanted to share these before, but since the AMA's are today i thought i would wait til now! they got back from Europaaa about a week ago and Nash put pictures from the trip on his Facebook. sooo i'm creep and here are just 5 of my favorites! look at the first and fourth one! so good! they went to Paris last, and they took like 13847 pictures of the Eiffel Tower haha

anyway, they are performing at the AMA pre-show and are nominated for Best New Artist! and i heard they are announcing too? i don't know if that's true, but it would be awesome!!

ok i'm done now. have a great Sunday! i keep getting sad because the weekend flew by, but then i remember it's only about a 2 day week - yay!

aaand the weekend

ahhh Friday! i thought this week was going fast until Thursday came :/ i guess since we only had 4 days last week it made this week feel slower. ah well, at least it's Friday now!

well.. we usually decorate quite a bit for Christmas, and i really don't remember decorating so early, but this year we have already finshed a lot. we still have the corn stalk...thing...out front, so it's kind of mixed seasons. on the inside we haven't put up the major tree yet, but we put up the smaller ones in my room and my parents room. (that's right, i have a Christmas tree in my room!) i just put it up here for the first time last year, so it's not like i've always had it. but yeah - we get into Christmas.

so tomorrow i have to decorate my tree, and then lounge around i guess haha and then Sunday the AMA's are on!! can't wait to see my boys win best new artist!! (by the way, if you want to help them win there is only one day left to vote as many times as you can! text 1 to 22288 or go to the AMA website to vote!)

have a great weekend!

a lot in a week

 today i really feel like getting things done, so i typed 3 paragraphs for my english book, did my spanish, i'm about to do my math homework and watch the back to back Princess Diaries on ABC Family, and then all i will have to do is read more of my book. phew! then i should probably look over my 28347 notecards too... but anyway!

i'd say this week is going fairly fast. at least faster than last week, anyway. even with a rainy hump day!

blegh, my stomach has been hurting on and off and it's really annoying - i hope i'm not sick for Thanksgiving! not just my stomach, but i hope i don't have this cold that's been going around as well.

oh and check out this Target Black Friday commercial - it gave me a giggle :)

it all begins

alrighty, so we got Lord of the Flies in school the other day and we had to read chapter 1 this weekend. so that's pretty much all i've been doing. i hate reading and i usually just don't get it and don't read and fail everything, blah blah blah. so this time i'm going to try soso hard to get it and read the ENTIRE book. it would probably be a milestone.

but other than that, i had a great weekend! hope you did as well!

spread the word to end the word

i thought i should blog about this, so that i myself can spread the word to end the word. do you know the r-word? well many people use it in the wrong way, and that can hurt people's feelings.
just be aware of when you say it and how you use it. know that the way you say it really effects people.
check out the link i put all over this post!

thanks!! :)

hope you had a great 11/11/11!!

Fall photos

so last year, i was bored and had a little Fall photoshoot with myself. and then this year, i thought the leaves looked cool with the sun, so i took a picture, and it turned into another solo Fall photoshoot!

here's some pictures i got from it: (not bad if i do say so myself)

happy three day weekend! we don't have off for Veteran's Day, we actually have an in service day. but make sure you have gratitude for the people that fought for our country!!!

and it was all yellow

i've been craving to get yellow nail polish, and i finally did! i love it. it's so bold and happy! nail polish is good stuff. i wish i could paint them a different color everyday!

Sunday, November 06, 2011


i want floral shoes, i want rain boots, i want Sperrys, i want shoes that are flat and out of the ordinary, i want too many shoes.

and i already have SO many pairs! i mean it's not like i have hundreds of pairs, but i don't want to count how many i have. it's not like i never have a pair to wear or don't have shoes that go with anything - i just keep wanting more! shoes are something that can make your whole outfit, or just can make you feel good. you know what i'm saying? it's hard to explain, i guess.

i just want to go a a shoe shopping spree!! that would be fantastic! gah, i love shoes. and this rant really makes me want to put a link to this video...


i love these pictures! i love those Toms, that snow is beautiful, Ian is so amazing, and Demi is so inspiring. did i tell you how psyched i was about HCR and Demi collaborating? they did a song together on HCR's new cd! that song will be SO good! i'm so excited for it!!

so SNL is officially the highlight of my weekend. not just this particular weekend, but every weekend! i loooove this show! i've been looking forward to watching it all day! and then when it's over, i can't wait to see it next weekend. it's just so funny and true! (and Andy Samberg is on it)

happy weekend!

i like it like that

best moment ever? yesterday i was on twitter and HCR posted something but it wouldn't work on my iPod, so i went on my computer. then i saw on the sidebar it had "Followers" and Following" and all that jazz. and under "Following" there was HCR's picture and i clicked on it and they were FOLLOWING ME. ahhh!!!! i freeeeaked out!

i mean they have like less than 60,000 followers, and they only follow like 2,500 of those people, so it's a pretty big deal. it's just so cool that they actually see my tweets about them and enough to follow me!!! i only have like 4 followers, so it's amazing.

and yesterday i failed a chem. test, so to come home to that made my life!

happy wednesday
p.s. woah, it's November?!
