I'm Back!

Okay, sorry, I haven't done a post in about two-ish weeks. While those two weeks have passed, I went to Washington D.C. with my school! It was such a great and fun experience! I would post the pics, but my camera is still having technical difficulties, so I will post the low-res ones taken by my phone. The pics are coming ASAP! If you want to see some photos of the DC Trip from my friend's camera, check out her blog posts on the trip!
She is doing multiple posts to get all the pics in, based upon the day/time of day. Check it out, some of them I don't have pics of either-even though I took over 400 pics the whole trip! Yes, I will have a hard time choosing which ones to show you...

I also have a haul post on the way, over a bunch of new, (well not a bunch, but you know what I mean) Clinique products! :) Love you guys, follow me if you aren't already!

Winterjam is tomorrow!

I am so excited for Winterjam and am going to be doing Winterjam a lot differently this year than I have before. I will be going with a large group of other people and waiting about 6 hours in line before the doors open! :) I am excited because my friends have said that it is the best part, so I am very anxious, but I have been sick. I have had stomach churning pain, migraines, scratchy sore throats for two days now and I am a little scared that I will be sick tomorrow in line or sick in the morning when I get up. Pray that I will be healthy long enough to go to this concert and that everything will go smoothly for me! :) I will tell you all about it, hopefully on Sunday and I am hoping to get some pics, but that depends on my camera. Love ya! -Katelyn

One week until DC!

Me sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, looking out at the Washington Monument-at night! :)
Tomorrow, Friday, March 11, 2011, is the day that marks ONE WEEK until we leave for Washington D.C.! I am sooo very excited! As far as I know, my roomies are Saba, Sara, and Angela ('cause Julia isn't going...), and we are leaving at 5 in the morning! That part kills me! I am physically incapable of waking up that early, let alone looking half-way decent that early. There is no school Friday, so unfortunately, we aren't missing any school :( and we will be returning to Lexington on Sunday at approx. 10pm, but the school still expects us to come the next day... hmmm something wrong with that picture??? Anywho, I know that I am excited and that some of my friends are. If you haven't read my other post about my last D.C. trip, then I will repeat it. This will be my 3rd time to D.C. and I hopefully will be going again this summer to stay with my aunt who lives in D.C. one mile from the White House! :) That's all for now.

Extreme Makeover: Blog Edition

As you can tell, (if you are reading this) I have been working on reconstructing my blog! I have been playing around with different color schemes, fonts, backgrounds, layouts, etc. Special thanks to
 for the background! They have completely free backgrounds for multiple purposes, including blogs... who knew? :) Tell me what you think of the new design, and any suggestions! :)

P.S. Who are you voting for on American Idol Season 10? My faves are Scotty McCreery and Thia Megia! I absolutely adored Jaycee, but unfortunately, he didn't make it to the top 24... :( Tell me what you think of Idol, who you think will win, who you want to win, and what you think of the brand new judges panel with J-Lo, Steven Tyler, and the not-so-new Randy. :)

Have a great rest of your day and happy reading!
            Love ya,

My new Obsession!

I have a new obsession: fashion magazines. My current favs are Marie Claire, InStyle, Vogue, and Elle. This month's girl on the cover of Elle is..... Katy Perry! Yay! I do not have subscriptions to anything other than Marie Claire, but I have at least one issue of the others listed above. Marie Claire's covergirl is Miley Cyrus, InStyle: Julianna Moore, and Vogue: Lady GaGa! In the Marie Claire issue of the month, Miley is trying way too hard to be an adult, even though she is now 18, she is trying to speed up her aging in every way except wrinkly skin.

I love looking at some of the crazy Prada, Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Coco Chanel, Michael Kors, Banana Republic (My favorite!), Juicy Couture, etc. outfits and accessories. 


My least favorite part about the magazines though, is most of hair and makeup. This is because most of it is so dramatic and out of this world that I cannot learn anything from it. I love the Juicy Couture advertisements and the Coco Chanel makeup though... :)

Okay, so here's the thing

My favorite part about blogs and making blog posts is the pictures. (If you haven't noticed...) Unfortunately, my supposed-to-be-amazing Kodak camera doesn't want to function with my computer, it will function with any other (I have tried), but not my own. :( This is disappointing to me because I like looking at things with pictures, it makes what I am reading easier for me to understand and more enjoyable to look at. I am trying to fix the comp. problem, but it will probably take awhile. I am working on it though, and for the time being, I will just take pics with my phone (I have been doing this already, that is why some pics are worse than others-sorry) and send them to my email so I can post them.... this post is pretty much pointless so I really don't know why I am writing about it-whatever, I don't really care.
