I'm Not Sure I Understand

Why would a woman, or a couple for that matter, want to be surprised about the sex of their baby? Don't you want to be prepared for it when it arrives? What are people supposed to get you at your baby shower? Diapers? I just don't get it. I can't imagine being pregnant for a whole 9 months and not know what the sex of the baby is. 

This isn't really a random topic. Sam's cousin is pregnant and should be having the baby within the next 2 weeks. Her and her husband have decided to not find out what the sex of their baby will be. 

Some one please explain this to me pleaseeee!

Snow, Snow, Go Away!

New Jersey got all this crazy snow last night and we're all stuck in the house! The streets have yet to be plowed and I'm mad. I wanted to go out today. Sam and I went out and played in the snow for awhile, but it's tiring trying to trudge through 2 feet of snow, especially when you have short legs like me. So I'm sitting in the house while Sam plays video games, and I'm bored

I'll be posting pictures and such from Christmas shortly though :) I hope everyone had a great holiday and if you blogged about it, with pictures, post your links in my comments. I'd love to read about it :)

Cupcake Snowmen!

So, this is what the snowmen were supposed to look like....

Yeah, I did think that mine were going to come out that good, but they didn't...

Obviously, the first step was to bake the cupcakes. Not burn them, not under bake them, but bake them just right. I had trouble with cookies earlier in the week. And when I say that I had trouble, I mean, I burnt them.

Then I had all of my ingredients ready. Stick pretzels, marshmallows, chewy candies and what not, frosting, and sprinkles. Target had noooo individual sprinkles so I had to get some chocolate frosting in order to get the sprinkles it came with.

Then, I frosted all of my cupcakes. The vanilla frosting looked sooo pretty cuz I got that canister of frosting instead of the tub of frosting.

After tediously working on these snowmen for about an hour, I was finished with 4 of them. I thought that was good enough considering Sam has 3 nephews and 1 niece. They'd enjoy them.

Some people think that baking and frosting cupcakes is simple, but there were some casualties. Poor guy :(

So that was about it. Just threw some sprinkles on the other ones and called it a day.


If you need to frost cupcakes or brownies or something, this is the way to go! They turn out looking so nice. I thought it would be kinda like whipped cream cuz of the can, but it's legit frosting. Very thick.

That's it. If you know me, you know that I can't cook or bake very well, if at all. So I'm pretty proud of myself. Hopefully Sam's nephews and niece like them!

Hope everyone has an eventful and joyous holiday!

Lets Go Steelers!

Steelers football is the only reason I somewhat enjoy Sundays. We play the Jets today and I'm feeling pretty good about it. 

Happy Sunday!!!

Vlog #4 - Super Special Christmas Edition

Thanks for watching :)

Look Out!

Look out for a new vlog either later today or tomorrow :) 


(BTW, I google'd "Girl Crush" and this was one of the pictures that showed up. In no way is it really relevant to this post. LOL)

So I was in the checkout line at Target last night and I was overcome by the sheer presence of the woman in front of me. OMG! She was gorgeous. My hands started sweating and I couldn't stop staring. I wish I would have taken a picture but I was busy. It wasn't like I wanted to rip her clothes off and do nasty things to her. It was just that she was so well put together and beautiful, that it was inspiring kind of. It sounds weird, I know.

Oh well. We parted ways and I'll probably never see her again. My lesbian heart is broken - hahaha! Just kidding.

New Desktop Background!

If you know me or have read my blog at all, you KNOW that I love me some Lucille Ball. I was watching that movie Valentine's Day and this was a clip from the beginning of the movie. I guess this is a store front security door on Hollywood Blvd. It's amazing, so I screen capped it and now it's the background to my desktop :)

Random, I know...

Reevaluating Myself!

A week before Thanksgiving I got myself into some legal trouble. I won't get into it too much but I made some bad decisions and ended up getting pulled over and was charged with a DWI. Yeah, pretty stupid of me, I know. Along with the DWI, I received a few other charges but all of this has really made me reevaluate what I'm doing and the people around me. If it weren't for my husband and my in-laws I don't know how I would have got this far through it.

Being handcuffed, put into a cell, and having to post bail is the most surreal experience I've ever had to go through. Not only is this process embarrassing and difficult, its also extremely expensive. It's a huge mistake that I regret with everything I have and the only positive thing that I can take from it, is that I didn't hurt anyone else or myself. This was the first time I've ever been in trouble with the law. I'd never even been pulled over before so it was pretty fuckin' scary.

All of this is why I really haven't been blogging much lately but I thought I'd kinda share my experience, especially since we're in the midst of the holiday season. I know people who have drinks and are fine to drive and most people know their limit, but take it from me, please don't drink and drive!

Getting into the Christmas Spirit!

This picture is my new picture for everything until after the holidays. I feel it gives everyone that extra reminder that Christmas is almost a week away. It hasn't snowed in the area of New Jersey that I'm in yet, so I can't really get into the holiday mood but I've been listening to massive amounts of Christmas music. I downloaded the Nat King Cole Christmas album, along with Mariah Carey, The Jackson 5, N'Sync, and Boys II Men :)

If you'd like to add a Santa hat to your pics go to :)

Police Academy, here I come...

After Sam went and got his video game I went to Barnes & Noble and got this book. I thought I'd get a little head start on being prepared for my future. I'm extremely serious about becoming a police officer. Sam has a friend who is a cop up in Jersey City. I would absolutely love to work in Jersey City! We're probably hanging out with him this weekend so I'll try and figure out what's going on with what I have to do to apply and take the written exam and stuff. I'm excited!!! Wish me luck!

First and Last Time for EVERYTHING!

Sam and I waited in this long ass line for like 45 minutes for the new Black Ops video game. When we first got there the line was outside but it quickly moved inside where it was hot as hell. I will never wait in a line for a video game again! I told Sam that we will never allow our children to play video games cuz if they do, they'll be addicted like these kids, and Sam for that matter. I thought the line would have been last night at midnight but it looks like a lot of people came after school and work. Shit is BONKERZ!


My hair was wayyyy too long and annoying so I decided to get it cut. It use to take me 15-20 minutes just to blow dry and now it takes me like a total of 10 minutes to finish doing my hair all together. It's A-fuckin-mazing..

But the woman that cut my hair had THEE worst manners ever! Didn't ask my name, didn't tell me her name, was cursing in front of everyone in the salon. She was a train wreck and she gave me bangs when I told her not to. Blah! Whatever. I'm just glad that it's cut and I feel a lot better about it.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I Don't Know What This Means...

But I've been listening to nothing but Etta James for the passed two days. I think I might be certifiably depressed. LOLLL! 

Oh, but I forgot to tell you guys that I've updated my other blog after like 2 full months of not even touching it. I'm going to update it again later this evening. Go check it out! 


Lucky me, right?! Blah. 

On a rather good note though, I woke up today feeling a lot better. Although my eyes are still pink and my throat is still scratchy... I didn't wake up miserable. 

Today I think I'm going to clean up the bedroom a little bit. Maybe try and disinfect everything. Then, I'm going to do some research on banks. Why, you may ask, am I going to research banks? Because Sam and I closed our account at TD Bank cuz they suck and now I'm thinking about going to Chase or maybe Citi Bank. I'm not sure yet. 

Sam doesn't get out of work until 9:30 so I'm stuck here all day alone as usual. Maybe I'll watch a movie or some tv or play some video games. Who knows?!

Hope everyone has a great Thursday!

Of freakin' Course...

If having this stupid cold weren't enough... I'm pretty sure I now have pink eye! This is terrible!

I want to get better so that I can be cute again and stop looking like a train wreck. Oh well, soon enough I suppose.

Update on Oxyelite Pro

Like the idiot that I am, I took my first pill the day before I left on  my trip back home. I thought to myself, "Katie, you know you're going to be eating terrible in Pittsburgh, maybe you should wait till you get back to begin taking them again." So I agreed with myself and didn't start really taking them till I got back. The pills made me very jittery and anxious. These are both noted side effects, but I didn't think they'd affect me like that considering I drink soda and caffeine like water. The first few days I was taking them I could handle all of that but when I kept taking them they kinda made my workouts harder to do cuz I was shaking and almost getting nauseous. 

I stopped taking them for a weekend when I went to Sam's sister's house, only cuz I forgot them. When I got back I started getting sick so I thought I'd wait till I feel better and ready to start working out again. 

They definitely made me lose weight. I was losing a little over a pound every day. They keep you from really getting hungry so you need to make sure that you eat while taking them. The pills also kept me from eating late night snacks and I think that really helped me. 

Just thought I'd update on this considering I got a few emails and comments about it.

Happy Monday everyone!

Rachel's Homecoming!

My sister is obviously the short one in the middle

This is her with her date Joe.

Rachel and I :)

I loved this little sitting sofa that they were sitting on! It's so cute!

So I did Rachel's hair and make up for the homecoming. We were going like 20 different ways with her hair and then finally didn't have time to do anything crazy, so we went kinda simple. My parents and I went to her friends house where everyone was meeting at to take pictures and it was a nightmare. All of the mothers were like, "look over here baby" "no look over here first" "I said, look over here!" MAD ANNOYING! 

After all of that, they went off to the homecoming for a lovely night of dancing and lollygagging. I had the tremendous pleasure of picking them all up at the dance and taking them to Fridays to eat afterwards. I thought they wouldn't take that long so I waited for them. I went driving around a little bit and even went into the bar for a beer. Needless to say the restaurant was packed with teenagers and people trying to watch the college football games. It took them over an hour to get their food and whatever. I tried to be patient and everything cuz I knew that this was their night and everything. After 12 they got back into the car and I was driving them home.  They were telling me that there were a ton of house parties and stuff that night which would obviously involve alcohol and drugs. Even though I use to partake in those kinds of activities I've always told Rachel and my youngest sister Nicole to not follow in my footsteps. I was so proud of Rachel for choosing to go to a restaurant instead of a stupid high school party. 

We got home and I showed her all of the pictures I took of her and her friends and she loved them and then went to bed. 

It was a great trip home but Rachel's homecoming was definitely the highlight for me. I love being a big sister. But sometimes I wish I lived closer so that I could be there for them.

Major Slacker!

I've neglected you all for over a month and I send out my sincerest apologies. I've been traveling a little, trying to get in shape, getting sick, sorting some things out, looking for a job, and scrap booking. 

When I say traveling, I mean I went home for 4 or 5 days at the beginning of October. So I suppose that isn't an excuse for not blogging. I went back for my sister Rachel's homecoming. It was a great trip. My mom and I spent all 4 days together without fighting and stuff. That's always a plus. I'll post a blog shortly with pics of the homecoming and stuff. 

I've gotten a couple emails and comments about the Oxyelite Pro pills and how they're working. I've stopped taking them for the time being and I'll post an update blog on that as well and let you know why. 

I'm getting over a bad cold. My throat is still killing me! It's been like 4 days and it's still not gone! The first 2 days I had a fever, chills, aches, the works! It was terrible. Sam had the cold and he passed it along to yours truly (LUCKY ME!). I'm hoping this sore throat goes away soon though. I can deal with being congested and all that, but pain is not cool!

I'm still currently looking for a job. I've been slacking a little lately and it's not a good look. I'm getting way to comfortable with no job. The thing is that I don't want to go to another job that I know I'm not going to stay at long or not like. What I want to do is become a cop. I'm not really sure of the steps I need to take cuz I've heard mad different things. If anyone knows a cop or is a cop drop me a comment or an email and let me know what my first steps should be! Thank you in advance!

I've been scrap booking a lot! I love doing it. I'm not very good at it but I'm good enough. It gets my mind off stuff and it lets me be a little creative and put things together. I'm a very big hands on type person, so projects are always loved by me. 

But anyways.. I'm going to be updating more often. I took some NyQuil about 15 minutes ago and it's starting to kick in!. 

Hope everyone had a great Halloween!

8 Day Detox!

I don't really know whats wrong with me lately. I'm in some sort of funk I guess. I'm definitely not myself. I think it has something to do with me not having a job and not really doing anything meaningful anymore. I've been looking for jobs and it's mad stressful because there is no where around here that's hiring.

I've decided that I'm going to take advantage of my long term vacation that I'm on and do something that will better myself. I've written down things that bother me or things that I really want to focus on and over come, or become more knowledgeable on. They really just include things like getting to know myself better, my dreams, my fears, my future plans. My family, my marriage, and this really weird obsession I have that either myself or someone I love is going to die, like an untimely death. It's something that I think about all the time. I dwell on it and I can tell it's not healthy.

So for the next 8 days I'm going to be spending a lot of time with myself. I think its very necessary right now in my life. I need some happy in my life. If that makes any sense. I'm going to try and blog a little bit about it everyday, but we'll see how that goes.

Pregnancy Scare!!!

For the past two weeks I've been freaking out a little bit. My period is mad late and it kinda made me a bit nervous. I dont know why, cuz my period is never on a normal schedule.

Last week I had a dream that Sam and I had a baby. She was a beautiful baby girl. In my dream she was probably like 6-8 months old and she was a gorgeous baby. She was happy and smart and everything I want my future child to be. She even had a a little bow in her hair. In the dream, Sam was trying to take a picture of me and the baby. He was calling her to try and get her attention. He was saying "Sydney, look over here... Sydneyyyy, over here." Then he took the picture and showed it to me and then I woke up.

I never had a dream of me as a mother before. So that kinda freaked me out. Then last night at dinner there was this adorable little baby at the table across from us. Sam and I were talking and then out of no where I hear the babies father call the baby Sydney. I was BUGGING OUT! I told Sam and he was a little uneasy about it considering I told him about my dream. It's not that Sydney is a rare name or anything but it was just a crazy coincidence I guess.

It was enough to make me go crazy later that night. I couldn't sleep. I got in the car at 3:30am and went to Walgreens. It was closed. Went to CVS. It was closed too. Drove passed Wal-Mart. CLOSED! The only place that was open was WaWa and they didn't sell any pregnancy tests. So I went back home and waited until this morning and I went to Target.

I came home alone cuz Sam had to go to work. The first test I tried came up with an error cuz I guess I did it wrong. (Yeah I know, I'm an idiot that doesn't know how to use a pregnancy test). Then I waiting about an hour until I had to pee again and took one... And.....

All I have to say is thank goodness! I'm not going to lie though. There was probably 45 seconds of me thinking what it would be like to have a baby at this time in my life and it made me a little happy. But I know I'm not ready.

But when Sam and I are ready it's going to be great!

Sorry to bore you with my little weekend scare!

Day 18 - The last film you saw

Dinner for Schmucks

It was pretty good. I love Steve Carell and that guy from the Hangover. They showed a lot of the funniest parts on the commercial, as always, so most of the parts were expected. I'd definitely recommend it as a date movie.

Day 17 - Something you have created

My scrapbook!!!!


There isn't a lot of pages to my scrapbook but I worked really hard on the pages that I do have completed. I love taking pictures and it was a lot of fun putting everything together.

Day 16 - A picture you've taken today

This is a pic of a salad, obviously, that I made on the 16th. It was "Day One" of becoming a vegetarian.

Sunday Funday

(Just some random pic we took the other day on our way home from dinner)

So usually I hate Sundays, but I think this one will be good. Sam gets off work at 7 and he's off tomorrow for the first time in like a week! I love spending time with him. Last night we watched Date Night and Cop Out. Date Night was ok, I was expecting it to be good, but it wasn't all that great. Cop Out was funnier than I expected. Tracey Morgan is hilarious!

I have to go grocery shopping but I'm procrastinating. I hate doing grocery shopping on Sundays cuz that's when all the old people do their shopping and they're so slow. But you gotta do what you gotta do I guess. I think I'm slowly transitioning into becoming a vegetarian. I've always wanted to do it and it's a goal of mine, but we'll see how that goes.

Day 15 - Put your iPod on shuffle and list the first 10 songs that play

So I update my iPod like twice a month. Which is a lot for me. I don't like being out somewhere and being stuck listening to the same crap. So without further adieu....

1. TLC - Creep - CrazySexyCool

2. Alanis Morissette - You Oughta Know - The Collection

3. Whitney Houston - Run To You - The Greatest Hits Disc 1

4. ATCQ - Bonita Applebum - ATCQ

5. Q-Tip - Gettin Up - The Renaissance

6. Adele - Make You Feel My Love - 19

7. Jay Z - Excuse Me Miss - Blueprint 2

8. Madonna - Inside of Me - Bedtime Stories

9. NSYNC - Giddy Up - *NSYNC

10. Spice Girls - If U Can't Dance - SPICE

LOL! As you can see my iPod is all over the place.

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Day 13 - Your celebrity crush

My favorite male celebrity is....


OMG! He's so sexy!.

Day 12 - How you found out about Blogspot and why you made one

I'm not sure how I found out about Blogspot. I'm sure someone I know had one and I liked reading it, so I thought I could contribute. I figured it would be like a less private online diary or journal.

I made one because I thought it would be cool and I wanted to be a famous blogger and have thousands of people read it and follow it. Then I got lazy and stopped updating daily. Sorry :(

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Day 11 - A youtube video

This was a kid that was at a BBQ that we went to. It's an original song that he wrote. I think he's pretty talented and the song is mad catchy!

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Day 10 - A food you could live off

I love cheese! Especially colby jack cheese. This is one food I can't live with out, let alone live off of. Cheese and crackers are my favoriteeeee!

Day 09 - Something you’re proud of in the past month

This is going to be pathetic, but what I'm most proud of this month is being able to do laundry on my own. I wasn't sure if I was ever doing it right or what colors go with what, not to mention the washer is so complicated to use. It's crazy that I can work a computer and cell phone at the same time but I can't work a freakin washer. I recently finally figured it out and did two loads on my own yesterday :)

But that's about the only thing I'm proud of this past month. Sorry I'm not cooler.

Last Nights Pics

Traffic, traffic, lookin' for my chapstick!

Sexy ass Sam

Some Seagrams to get the party started

First game of beer pong! I wish I woulda filmed my clutch final shot to win the game. It was pretty epic.

We had two tables going at the same time and the balls were getting thrown into different table's cup


Night ended on a blurry note! But it was pretty fun. I'm definitely trying to move up to Jersey City in the near future. I love it up there and Sam has a lot of people up there.
