Day 19-I'm getting sick of this thing

Nicknames I have and why:

Kamangas: Sophie made this up. She got this from the Kancamagus highway in New Hampshire hahaha.
Katherine: NO MY NAME IS NOT KATHERINE; I am just Kate but some of my friends still call me Katherine.
Katesta/the pastey katesta: I thought this was cool when I was little until I learned that pastey means pale...Uncle Dave started this one
Katers: Chuckie calls me this
Katephernie: Mike calls me this....no idea where he got it but whatevs
Katy did: Grandpa Porter calls me this
Katie-doo-dah; Doo-dah: Don't know who made it up, but I've been called this since I was really little.
Gazelle: Apparently I take really long strides when I run so my basketball team called me gazelle
One that will not be mentioned: Brittany Davies came up with this one. No more.

I am usually the giver of nicknames, and I can't think of all of mine right now. Maybe some more will come to me.

Day 16

Today I'm supposed to put up another picture of me. I decided to have it be an old one. This is the day of Steve's farewell in Maryland. So this was taken about 8 years ago. Ew Steve, you're old. This is a picture of me with little Maxie. They grow up so fast...

Booya Grandma (gramma)!!!

So grams here was being a little punk today. I was trying to take some Thanksgiving pictures with her and she was NOT cooperating. I told her that these pictures would hit the internet if she didn't stop. So here you go gramma. I warned you.  

 At least gramps will cooperate

 Got one with gramps after giving up on grams

 Gramma peaking through HAHAHA! At least she followed my direction that time. 

 Pretty much had to force this picture.

And of course I got one with Brooke. Holidays=don't do your hair. Looks like an explosion went on up there. yikes.
Don't mess grams!

Day 15

This should get interesting. I'm supposed to put my ipod on shuffle and say the first 10 songs to come on. To give you a better feel I'm going to do 50; that's partly because I'm bored and because I have 1540 of the most random songs ever. I seriously have every type of music on my ipod. I may have to explain a lot hahaha.

1. Renegade-Styx; This song is SOOOO great!
2. Signed, Sealed, Delivered - Stevie Wonder; Please hold while I have a mini dance party.... ok, I'm back

43. Wonderwall- Oasis; this reminds me of my cousin Adam
44. Human Nature- Michael Jackson; Wow go MJ he made it again. I love this song.

49. Telescope Eyes- Eisley
50. and the last one is.........HAHAHA Cowboy Take Me Away- Dixie Chicks

I can't believe Elton didn't come up once!! I guess you know it was shuffle then because if I got to pick the songs elts would be there multiple times.

Sorry for the boring post. This was mostly for me cause I was having so much fun. I just kept adding more until I got to 50 and realized I was getting annoying.

YES that is Michael Johns!!!! We got a few pictures with him. None of them are cute but whatever who really cares. I love him!

Day 13

For day 13 I have to write a letter to someone.

Dear Martha,

Let's be best friends. You can share your secrets with me, and I'll make you cupcakes. We could even become business associates. That probably would be ideal, right? Ok, well I'm glad we're on the same page now. Talk to you soon



I thought it was lame to write a nice intimate letter to someone on blogger. I mean obviously this letter reveals the inner feelings of my heart, but I feel weird writing a letter to someone I actually know and letting tons of people read it.

Love finding old phone pictures

Day 12

Dunno who introduced me to blogger...dumb one

Saw Harry Potter and loved
Get to make a pie tomorrow in cooking class (I am getting domestic)
Still obsessed with Nicole
Playing basketball EVERY day this week on break. People (you know who you are) COME JOIN!
Two openings in my apartment: one room mate is getting married and the other doesn't exist in this apartment and is moving out (I think I last saw her 3 weeks ago)
My life kinda got really complicated all of a sudden
Lauren and I set up a wedding in California last weekend that Laur planned. THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING! If you know people getting married send them our way. You can see a few pictures on Chuck's blog
Can't think of anything else: had Billy Joel's Don't Ask Me Why on repeat this past week. I just love that song.
MY FAVORITE PICTURE OF ALL TIME! Max and Moe back when we lived in Maryland. Before my mom got the camera Max had his arm around Moe. I miss my puppy! He's almost been gone two years :(

Day 10

Songs I listen to when I'm....

Mad: Anything Brandnew but especially Seventy Times Seven.

Sad: I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues-Elton John, St. Patrick's Day-John Mayer,

Happy: Angel-Shaggy, O' Sole Mio-Bryan Adams and Pavorotti,

Day 9

Something I am proud of in the last few days....EASY

Completing my human development paper. Doesn't sound that bad but if you would have seen me this week you would understand why this is an accomplishment...Yeah me!

Just found this of us at the Justin Bieber concert hahahaha. Yes, I wore a shirt that says I heart JB hahaha

I don't really care about superheroes. I think real life heroes are much cooler. So with that said, here is my supa cute mom:

Her birthday about 3 years ago

I was an ugly little thing

Bobsleddin' like champs

I'm clearly the favorite daughter


One of the early cousin camps

Day 4

A bad habit that I wish I didn't have would be neck and finger cracking. I know it's bad and gross and I need to be better...

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Day 3

For day 3 I'm supposed to put a picture of me and my friends. I have different friend groups (but now most of them live in the same building and are in the same ward...so convenient) so since there are two posts about friends I'll start with a picture of some of my high school friends. I have the best friends in the world!

Day 2

The meaning behind my name is kinda lame. I didn't come up with it. Credit goes to either Chuckie or Mike I can't remember. Basically we were trying to think of something clever that has to do with me. Because I love making cupcakes and at the time I was considering going to pastry school after BYU, CupKates was created.
 I hate blog posts without pictures so I decided to bless you all with this gem. MY BROTHER IS SO CUTE!!!!!!!

Day 1

Picture of myself. Thought this was appropriate because Thanksgiving is coming up.

15 Facts about me

1. If you want to be my instant friend play with my hair. 
2. I make this really weird noise (my mom calls in my chortle) at random when walking around the house or around animals. 
3. I love Mary Kate and Ashley movies. They are cheesy, ridiculous and fabulous. 
4. When I lived in Maryland I took horseback riding lessons. I did jumping and all the fun stuff. I miss it so much and am sad that I stopped when I moved to Utah. 
5. I am SUPER shy and it takes me a while to warm up to people. I didn't feel comfortable around girls in the dorms last year until about March (like 7 months after I moved in... YIKES). 
6. I could watch family videos every day and not get sick of them. 
7. I love sudoku, especially when I'm doing them in my grandma's hammock in Vermont. 
8. I stalk wedding/design blogs and drag cute photos to my iphoto. I have a folder dedicated to blog finds and my wedding. 
9. I'm really nostalgic and think about my childhood all the time. I miss it. 
10. I used to be in musicals. I loved performing as long as I didn't have a big part ha! When I had solos and lines I would freak out.
11. I cry really easily, especially in movies. 
12.  I can't eat when scary things are happening. I can't eat if gross/scary things are being talked about or during scary movies. 
13. I love writing songs/poems. I don't write serious or deep poems, just silly poems for friends or songs about stupid boys.
14. My dream is to have a lake house somewhere back east. 
15. I love to dance. I dance like a dumb idiot (that was for you Elysse) but it's so fun. If I could pick on thing do one thing really well I would want to dance.

Favorite Season

Fall is easily my favorite season. I LOVE when the leaves change and the air gets just a little cold. My heart aches knowing that it will soon come to an end :( I didn't fit in nearly enough fall activities this year. The only evidence that i have of enjoying fall 2010 are the pictures of us in the leaves and my history on my computer that shows I watched Double Double Toil and Trouble on youtube (alone on a saturday go ahead and judge me. I'll do it again). One thing that I miss SO much about living in Maryland is the real fall. You think the leaves here are pretty? You have no idea. I loved having a forest in my backyard. Besides making an awesome location to pretend to be at summer camp it was SOOOO pretty. Too bad I was a lame child and didn't recognize how beautiful it was there. I haven't had a Maryland fall since Steve and Dayna's wedding 4 years ago. Sadly, life goes on haha. At least here there's still Sundance fall which is pretty dang spectacular. 

I love fall and Nicole

Caravaggio and Louis XIV

If you type in titles to Mary Kate and Ashley movies on youtube you can watch them just broken down into parts!!!! Of course I discovered this the weekend before a TON of school work. Instead of watching New York Minute I am studying for art history. Painful, but necessary.
