KATching the bouquet!

Sometimes Katherine

catches the bouquet!

catching-the-bouquet

And other times Katherine

does not.

figuratively AND literally…

                                                              Lyrics here

(this song is really sad, but I like it…)

READERS!

1)  When have you “caught the bouquet?”

2) When have you NOT “caught the bouquet?”

                        line of propriety

                                                       line of propriety

                                         line of propriety

                                                                                                  line of propriety

but maybe we can still enjoy the wedding.”

                  Oh, and thanks to this girl for inspiring me in this post, and in my life.

Screen shot 2013-08-18 at 12.34.03 AM

She’s a HUGE Red Sox fan (DUH!)

and I wouldn’t be the person I am without her. Image

But MOST importantly, I wouldn’t have watched the movie without her.

🙂

PS.  I have thought a lot about this idea of  hobbies/interests (ie Natasha Bedingfield) getting in the way of REAL life.  Check it stat: 

PPS.  In the end, Jimmy Fallon’s character gets his act together, gets the girl, gets to the game, AND the Sox win the 2004 World Series.  Every once in a while, EVERYONE WINS!  Take that, Curse of Bambino!

PPPS.  If my guy ever wanted to read about sports while I blogged on my Mac computer, that wouldn’t be the end of the world…

*blink and you might miss that there are 2 wedding dresses in this post.

Sometimes a picture is blurry…

but you Facebook it anyways because:

A) Your hat, hair, and makeup looks cute.  (Oh, yeah and I like these girls sometimes)

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 5.36.14 PM

B)  It’s the ONLY picture you took when you flew out to surprise your friend (even though she picked up on all of your “subtle” hints).

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 5.38.30 PM

And don’t think it’s an accident that both of these pictures feature my left-side.  To the left, to the left!  Come to think of it, I AM irreplaceable 🙂

That weird writer neighbor

Image  Screen shot 2013-08-04 at 11.13.56 AM

You know how in “The Princess Diaries” Mia has that weird writer neighbor?  He has no social skills and he’s always really nervous and awkward and half the time he’s in his pajamas and probably won’t ever get married.  He’s so sure that he’s on the verge of greatness, but in actuality will never make any money.  Yep, that’s me.

In case you thought I was just trying to be cute…

by occasionally comparing myself to Miss Carrie Bradshaw, let me present proof that I am not the only one who has made the connection:

Oh, except I’m totes about chastity.  Check it stat:

Becoming a woman….

BYU Fall of 2006, I spoke the following words with complete and utter sincerity:

“My email is AmericanGirl, but now that I’m in college

Image            I’m thinking about changing it to AmericanWoman.”

Image

And Melissa never let me forget it 🙂

I’m an All-American rebel making my big get-away…

Stolen Camera!

Again, not really. Phew!  But I have been known to steal a friend’s camera for a few minutes.  Later, they may find a picture like this on it:

“You don’t have to be tan to be beautiful…”

Image

Thank you Miss Melissa for explicating this simple yet life-changing truth to me when we were freshman at BYU.  This revelation helped me shed years of insecurity and also save a little money since I no longer was buying tan-in-a-can every other week.  Sure I like to have a summer glow now and then, but I no longer feel ugly because my skin doesn’t look like leather.

Top 3 reasons why guitar is the best instrument:

1)  it’s social (or at least it should be):
Image
2)  it’s easily portable:

I highly doubt you are going to take your harp to the next ward bonfire 🙂

3)  it’s versatile:  You can play very different kinds of music with the same instrument.  Example:


(same artist, same general type of guitar, CRAZY DIFFERENT MUSIC!)

Now how many other instruments can you say all that about?

Oh, and to top it all off, I play the guitar too 🙂

P.S. Truth be told I REALLY like the violin, but sadly I don’t play..
