Attempting to soften a frozen, rock-solid ice cream sandwich in the microwave can lead to DISASTROUS results.

in my informed and intelligent opinion)

READERS!

1) When have your original plans worked out?

2) When have you needed to move to another letter in the alphabet?

figuratively and/or literally

Spic and SPAM!

Screen shot 2013-09-15 at 12.48.36 AM

When I first started my blog, I was too liberal in posting it on friends’ Facebook walls.  Don’t hate me too much, I was just excited! 🙂  And don’t worry either; I’m smarter than that now.  Still, internet spam is a problem that annoys pretty much everyone at some point or another.  And when it comes to my own mistakes, I always take blame when necessary.  So beef it up and watch my sincere and meaty apology!  You won’t wanna miss it:

(and you know that fork ain’t for nothin…)

Hope ya’ll enjoyed that.  Because it wasn’t my favorite thing in the world.  So sorry again for spamming.  But now:

Young Love? That’s LUDACRIS!

Watch how I teach some beautiful gospel principles from a famous brand of infant comida:

Gentle Rebuke:

Costume-change!

Here are a few links to further explore ideas that I mentioned:

1)  Romeo and Juliet is hardly a good example of a healthy relationship.

2)  Modest is the hottest (this is a phrase I don’t hate OR love…will further explore later)

3)  I am 16 going on 17 (correct dating age)

4)  “Ludacris” is a real word, FYI!

5)  MOVE ON FROM MISTAKES OF YOUR PAST!

And I don’t think the following video is completely necessary, but many of the best things in life are not.  So check it stat!

I believe that women can be sexy,

but also ought to maintain class and (line of) propriety,

Now GO!

Go fall in love.

Go change the world.

Go help an old lady move.

Go help her carry her groceries.

Go clean your car, (that’s what I need to do).

I need to go do my hair, and a few other things…

Sexy Blog

ImageThis blog is powerful.  It has the potential to do a lot of good.  And it is doing a lot of good!  You see, I have been able to open a lot of doors for myself and for others, get in touch with friends and family,  attract the attention of a few handsome gents, find my niche as a writer (you can do that in 2013!) and also express my testimony of Jesus Christ.  And when it comes to people reading my stuff, all I’ll say now (while hoping to not come across as arrogant and also being fully aware that I may run out of creativity tomorrow) is this:

PEOPLE.               ARE.             READING.

(28 days, 38 countries, but who’s counting?)

So yes, this blog is good, great, excellent, beautiful, invigorating, et cetera.  They need a new word for the potential of this blog.  (I’ll probably come up with one soon.  Stay tuned.)ImageI would be ignorant if I overlooked the potential it has to do a lot of bad, too.  Like, I can’t get SO caught up in it that I don’t go help a friend pack up before a move (which I told her I would do and was 3 hours tardy).  Or talk about it all the time (I have improved and repented, but still am not perfect).  Or think I’m the next big shot (the thought has crossed my mind once or twice but then I looked in the mirror at my unkempt hair and ate another bite of my cold spaghettios).  So to wrap up this paragraph, I’ll just say that I NEED to be careful about this blog!

Image(Oh, right, I need to make it relevant to the reader as well.)  You should care because Katherine’s epiphany involves you too!  You may not have a blog.  But most people today have a Facebook, or an email, or some other form of social media. And those things can be good!  And I personally am glad you have one or you wouldn’t be reading this right now 🙂  But I digress.  Let me wrap it up in a cute little phrase that could become the next big meme or may be relayed in some Mia Maid’s class in Timbuktu:

You have a Facebook.  Don’t let your Facebook have YOU!

And NOW, let’s get to why I used “sexy” in the title.  The LDS Church (and other denominations, religions, affiliations!) teaches that sex is a powerful tool.  For good.  And for bad.  (let me redirect you to a link where I further expound upon this topic and simultaneously increase my own traffic).  So make sure you use your social media of choice (and your own physical body) for GOOD!

(look at the title!)

 And although our lines of propriety may be different, we all need to have one.  I have further ideas/resources available to help us keep in control, but want to guarantee that you keep coming back so I will leave you wanting more with that cliffhanger…

Your Blog is Sexy! But don’t let it become TOO Sexy!

The scripture which I will reference momentarily is NOT the first time I have used it (good readers pay attention when [good] writers repeat because it is screaming “EMPHASIS!”)

O be wise.  What can I say more? 

Jacob 6:12

(if you click on that link, it will take you to not only the scripture, but also to a great Conference talk given on the subject.  Missionary work!)

And now let me embed another address about making sure we stay in charge of our media consumption:

Read here: 

Wow.  Just wow.  Elder Bednar is a spiritual, powerful, and courageous leader.

I am eternally grateful for his counsel.

So now what?

THE END (maybz..)

Phew!  That was a long post.  But I do think that the Lord helped me with it.

And more than just a little, know what I’m sayin?

Off to the grocery store for this girl!

Sayonara.  And NOT just to my Japanese fans…

PS.  I ain’t running out of things to write about any day soon.  Just sayin’

Sometimes I do this when I pick up people from the airport:

After all, we ARE all VIPs.

And, I do like picking up people (whom I know/trust) from the airport when I can, but I also won’t reject gas money/food/a good time in return, know what I mean?

P.S.  That sign was for Maizy (before her days as a married woman, of course)!  I don’t make signs for/pick up myself 🙂

I may be single, I may not know exactly what I’m doing with my life….

but at least I have THIS GUY for a brother-in-law!Image

Seriously, if he can’t fix it, cook it, grill it, make it, NO ONE CAN…

I really wish we could clone Tyler X 100 and make a lot of single women happy.

Okay, this is starting to sound like I’m hitting on Maizy’s squeeze, which I’m NOT!

Just am so grateful he married my sissy and is in the Wilkinson clan now

It’s hard to make convincing running poses

Image

particularly when you’re clearly inside,

Image

are wearing your medal and have already crossed the finish line,

Image

or are standing in a cute pose with your friends. 

Image

It’s also hard to fake eating when your food is all gone.

And the companion?

So not to be completely inappropriate, but if you ever see me wearing that shirt, you probably also know what else I’m wearing too 🙂

Shout out to my boy Neil!

Just another shout out to this amazing human being, Neil Pasricha, author of the Webby-award winning blog 1000 awesome things.  Thanks for inspiring me, giving me hope and confidence, and also being a HUGE PART of the creation of this blog!

Hey Mr. PASRICHA, did you see my post about a PASHMINA scarf?  See what I did there?

Seriously though, Neil, come on out to Salt Lake.  Bring your girlfriend with you.  We’ll have a swell time.  And I’m sure with the dough you’re rolling in you can afford to take me out to eat.  Think of the traffic it would do to BOTH our blogs!  And this ain’t no truth in jest invitation.  This is….dead serious 🙂

Turkey Trimmings

People I swear I go outside these days.  I do take showers (once a month is normal, right?), eat, sleep, hang out with others.  But yes, it is true that I also have been WAAAAAY into my blog lately.  No denying that.  Don’t be hatin’!  Anyways, so far I’ve had about 50 views from Turkey.  TURKEY!  Never been there.  But my brother and sister-in-law DID bring me this Pashmina scarf from there a few years ago (that’s what happens when your brother is a doctor and you are not).  Just wanted to share.

Thanks to my Turkey viewers!  I hope you keep coming back!
