Sometimes when you mess up in front of millions of people…

(0:00-1:00)

you just keep going….

(just watch it…)

and people think you are even MORE AWESOME than before!

Good to know for future reference…just kidding 😉

My fashion sense has really taken a hit these days…

Image

And not a good hit.  A bad hit.  (This is Katherine attempting a sports connection.  Really don’t know much about sports, but if I’m gonna get that Webby, I need to appeal to a larger demographic, so I need to diversify my topics.)   ANYWAYS, yes my cute clothes have been kinda neglected lately.  Yesterday, for example, I wore a pink swimsuit cover-up, modified only by the addition of a blue hoodie when I had a man come over at night.  Can’t have anyone lusting over my bare shoulders now!  And 2 days ago I wore yoga pants to a date.  Add to that I spilled sauce onto my shirt.  Also my hair dryer hasn’t been used in about 3 weeks!  Good thing I have church in a few hours so I can clean myself up just a LITTLE (paradox).  And yes, this blog post was just a stealthful way to express that even though I’m not the dress-size I was a year ago, when it comes to the men, this girl’s still got it!

Shout out to my boy Neil!

Image

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 🙂

I TOTALLY feel ya, Macklemore….

“Looking for a better way to get up out of bed
Instead of getting on the Internet and checking a new hit”

“little bit of humble, little bit of cautious”

#read lyrics here: 

#ambivalent feelings toward fame…..

#this song is about as near to perfection as one can get…

#still wouldn’t hate a Webby 🙂

#just barely over 4,000 hits…in 20 countries…in 11 days-LITERALLY!

#pride is the downfall of civilizations

# I STILL DO OTHER STUFF, PEOPLE!  sometimes…

#still no money, but have made strides in that direction 🙂

I’m glad you like my blog, but I DON’T want you glued to your seats…

Figuratively or literally.

I’ve had people email/FB/text me saying how much they appreciate my blog.  And I appreciate that YOU appreciate it.  It feels good to have readers, especially if I’m gonna get that Webby, BUUUUUT, remember that your story is more important than mine.  Read my blog when you’re on your computer or Iphone or whatever, but don’t forget to LIVE YOUR LIFE!

Enough detail to be vulnerable, refreshing, and honest…..

but not enough to be inappropriate, vulgar, or insensitive.  That is my approach when it comes to this blog.  And to my life.  That is one of the reasons that I love (and hate) that little HBO show that shall be not be named.  That is (one of the reasons) why pornography is terrible (random tangent but true none-the-less).  That is how I strive to be.  It can be a fine line to walk,   Image

and all I can do is my very best.  I know I speak the truth on here, but I also know what to put in, and what to leave out, both about my life and others’. Remember, part of the 3 fold description of this blog is “human.”  That’s what I’m going for here, folks….I’m not afraid to put a hideous picture of myself on this blog (and there are plenty, aren’t there?)  Just so long as I can put pretty pictures up too.  According to Pinterest, Marilyn Monroe said that your clothes should be tight enough to show you’re a woman, but loose enough to show you’re a lady.

I want my blog to show that I’m a woman, and a lady.  And a Mormon.  The sum total of my experiences and beliefs make up Katherine.  I wish to celebrate the diversity of my identity and experience.  And in my 25 years, I’ve found that to be one of the trademarks of a great writer.  Now, I may not be the next Willa Cather (we got the whole Kath/Cath thing going on, though)  but believe it or not, I do put some time/ effort/ energy/ prayers/ tears/ laughter/ love into this lil’ blog.  In the end though, please simply disregard everything I’ve written previously because it all really just comes down to that Webby and what I think voters are looking for 🙂

This blog has been a long time coming, yes it has (been in my figurative womb for 25 years!)  It’s kinda like trying to write that perfect song that you just KNOW you have in you somehow.  It just can be hard to reach that place of inspiration….Sure, I’ve had blogs before.  I had a fashion blog.  I had a happiness blog.  I had a church-stuff blog.  I had a regular blog. They weren’t terrible.  They were good stepping stones.  The Law of Moses.  But I was ready for something more.  Gotta step on up that ladder of success.  Gotta crawl before you can fly.  Gotta be in low-budget films before you get that Oscar-winning role, know what I mean?  Now, I don’t know if I’ll ever win an Oscar.  Scratch that, I DO know that I will NEVER win an Oscar.  I wouldn’t mind winning a Webby.:)  But that prob won’t happen.  And that’s okay.  But either way, I don’t want any more baby food.  I got my big girl teeth now.  I’m ready for meat.  I want the higher law.  I want Christ.  The real deal:  and this blog is it.  And I’m JUST.  GETTING. STARTED.

Core Beliefs:  Beauty, humor, expression, creativity, kindness, understanding, Christ

ALL OF THEM BABY!

Think I found my sweet spot, ya’ll….

Love is a temple.  Love is the higher law.
