15 Random Facts to Know About Me


15 Random Facts to Know About Me


1. 100% Nerd: I am 100% a nerd. I love Harry Potter, the Hunger Games, Disney, Sookie Stackhouse, Twilight, 50 Shades, etc. If I could throw themed parties for the movies and books that I love. I totally would, but I would rather not look like a crazy person!

2. I love to read: My husband hates when I get a new book series, because not only do I binge watch TV shows, but I binge read. I have been trying to make an effort to limit how much I'm reading per day. I'm currently reading Sookie Stackhouse series. I'm on book 8 and have checked the rest out from the library.

3. I love to cook and bake: I wish we had little fairies in the world that would clean dishes when I get done cooking or baking, because that would make the process even more enjoyable, but so far I have had zero luck in that department. But I still love to feed people. To me that is comforting to take care of others.

4. I love to sing Karaoke: I am a normally very reserved person and I'm not one who likes to be the center of attention. However, I do love to sing Karaoke. I am nervous every time I go up there, but no matter what I sound like, it's still always fun. I have yet to convince Joe to duet with me... but I continue to try or nag, however you want to look at it!

5. Craft Addict: If I could spend infinite money each month buying craft projects and supplies, I would. However, I am not a crazy person (even though Joe might differ on days I drag him into Hobby Lobby), but I do enjoy creating new decorations, gifts and home decor for our house.

6. Pinterest Addict: I love all things Pinterest. Except for the fact that it really hinders productivity around the house. I could pin 5,000+ things on how to clean the house better, while I should be cleaning the house, but usually I'm just pinning! It's addicting to see all the different ideas that you can find in one place. I do like getting recipes and DIY decoration ideas from the site.

My favorites:

7. Candy Bar: Reese's Cups, followed by Milky Ways & Twix bars
8. Food: Pizza followed by a close second of chicken and dumplings
9. Color: Blue (like Colts blue....or my bridesmaid dresses from our wedding)
10. College Team: Louisville Cardinals
11. Sport: Basketball
12. Pro Teams: Colts & Pacers
13. Animal: Polar Bears

14. Las Vegas: We love to go to Las Vegas. We are getting ready to go again. It's our favorite place to travel. It has cheap hotels, cheap entertainment, poker, blackjack, sports betting, lights, and the alcohol is free! What is not to love?

15. Favorite TV Shows: Breaking Bad, The Newsroom, Glee, The Mindy Project, New Girl, Modern Family, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Boardwalk Empire

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!



Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Kara

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
