We wish you a Marry Christmas (And a Happy New Year!)

Ok, ok, so, there are twelve days of Christmas, sooo yeah. I'm not late. Wooh!

MERRY CHRISTMAS ( Oh Come, all ye Faithful. Joyful and Triumphant, oh come ye, oh come ye, to Bethlehem. Come and behold HIM, born the King of Angels. Oh, come let us adore HIM. Oh, come let us adore HIM, oh, come let us adore HIM, Christ the Lord.)

hope that everyone had a BLESSED BLESSED Christmas! and got lots of cool stuff (hey, the material stuff is epic, too. ;))

And New Year! Wow, it's 2010! I remember New Year's Ever 2000. It was the first time I watched Titanic. Epic, no? It's a whole new decade. Yeesh.

Anyway, God Bless you and have a Merry Merry, rest of Christmas (Hark, the Herald Angels sing. Glory to the Newborn King! Peace on Earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners, reconciled. )

Hey Twilight fans!

Who saw New Moon??

*raises hand*

Who LOVED it?

*raises hand*

Who thought it was way better than Twilight.

*raises hand*

Who thinks it wasn't?

*random person in movie theater raises hand* Ignore them. Their loco.

AHH! It was so good! RPattz and KStew were actually Edward and Bella this time! Instead of RPattz and KStew trying to be Edward and Bella. The actings improved, the vamps looked SO much better, there was barely any awkward acting, and the casting was GREAT! and... it actually stayed REALLY true to the book! Whoduh thunk?

Hi, my name is Katie...

and I am the worst blogger in the history of bloggers *bows head shamefully* If anybody's still reading this: HI!

If not... :(

I'm gonna try *TRY!!* to blog more often, I have LOTS to blog about, especially since I just came home from a ten day trip to California!! I took over 600 pics and I met some famous people (oooh!!)! We went to Hollywood, Universal Studios, Los Angeles, Disneyland, San Diego, and SeaWorld. No, this was not just a random trip, My cousin, Bobby (Or "Bob" as everyone calls him now.... but like, that's my UNCLE. So I still call him Bobby. *shrug*) got married to a WONDERFUL girl on the seventh in San Diego. The wedding was beautiful, and a bunch of my fellow Connecticut family members went, too. Including Little Reilly! Yeah, Reilly's like, four now. He's the cutest kid. :)) Also, my cousin Carney came from Arizona with his wife and son. It was great to see them, since we haven't seen them since Reilly's Baptism! Reilly was baptized in March of 2006... yeah. Long time.

Well, that's all for now! I'll be back, though. *EVIL LAUGH*


Book reviews will randomly start showing up again on Reviews by Me... ;)

Hopeless romantic taggy thing

Thank you Rose for tagging me :D

What two qualities do you want most in your future husband?
Kindness, loyalty, a sense of humor, be a Catholic, a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, a mouth to comfort, and a hand to hold. It would be nice if, a) He liked to dance and was a good dancer or b) was willing to learn. No swaying dancing at my wedding, thank you very much.

Is there a fictional character you see as a model for your future husband?
Edward Cullen, Fish, and Ron Weasley oohhh

Where do you want your wedding?
I want to be married in a small church like my parents were. A small wedding with just our family and friends.

What are your views on courtship?
Courtship is a great way to get to know someone. I really like the idea. I'm allowed to "date" now that I'm sixteen, bt I'm hoping instead to court or do something like it.

What are your views on your first kiss?
I want my first kiss to happen when he asks, "Can I kiss you?" and I reply, "Yes." I think the idea of waiting for your engagement or wedding day is a wonderful idea, but I think that a kiss shows love, and you really want to know the person loves you when you marry them/ get engaged.

Do you have or want a purity ring/locket?
Ooh! I've never heard of a purity locket! I have a makeshift purity ring that is on my left ring finger until I get my real one.

Do you have or want a hope chest?
Ooh! I would LOVE one!

Will you wear a veil at your wedding?

What kind of wedding dress do you want?
Maybe a regency like dress? Or an A-line dress with sleeves.

What flowers do you want in your bouquet?
Roses. Or lilies. I'm starting to love lilies. They're so simple and beautiful. Ooh, and daisies!

What do you want to name one of your daughters?
Madelynn Therese. I love the name Madelynn and the spelling of it, and Therese is my favorite saing.

What do you want to name one of your sons?
John Paul Benedict :)

Do you believe in the 'knight-in-shining-armor' view of courtship?
Oh yes. :)

What music do you want to play at your wedding?
I want to hear "Ave Maria" during my ceramony. And I want our first dance to be to "It's your love" by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw.

Are you a hopeless romantic?

And if you are reading this, you are tagged :)

New New Moon trailer!

Sweet Sixteen

Today is my sixteenth birthday. In November, it will be ten years since I met the other Katie. How crazy is that? Time truly flies by.

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Anyone care to pinch me?

The Other Katie saw Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

Growing up, Katie learned to "endure" my obsessiveness with Harry Potter. She wasn't allowed to see it when she was younger and as she got older, she just didn't want to.

Twilight stuff

They are making a Twilight Graphic novel! No matter how much I hate manga and anime, this is one investment I am totally getting. :D


On the Hunger Games, and Harry Potter



It. Was. SO. Good. At least, WAY better than HP5 was. That just plain stunk.

I'll have a review up soon-ish up at Reviews by Me. Soon-ish means within the next year, btw.


If you haven't read the hunger games, read it. It's a horribly disturbing, but horribly AWESOME book!

Let's talk MJ and Farrah.

I know it's been at least two weeks since the tragic and unexpected death of "The King of Pop", Michael Jackson, and expected, but just as equally tragic death of Farrah Fawcett.

Why is my little town still in mourning, then? How many people from my town met Michael Jackson? As we passed our local Wendy's, a message on the board outside the restraunt caught my eye:

"Goodbye, Michael."

As soon as I had seen it, I was in shock. Truly, Michael Jackson was a wonderful entertainer, but as a person?


The same day of MJ and Farrah's deaths, my good friend Mike's cousin was killed over seas fighting for our country.

How much coverage did this FEARLESS HERO get?!





Still, our country is mourning the deaths of two entertainers. Yes, they were entertaining. Yes, they will be missed. But what about the man that died for you? Why aren't we mourning him? The man laid his life down for his country, so selfless. How many of us are willing to do that?

Don't mourn the entertainers, mourn the hero.
