Oreos, pink lipstick, and other random thoughts…



I decided to try oil pulling to see if it whitens my teeth.  That was the “before” picture. Isn’t it lovely?  (I’ll give you a thorough review of the process someday.)

When you’re at the grocery store and you buy gum or a pop, the cashier asks if you want that “left out.”  Why don’t they ask if I want my Oreos left out? Because I do.

Adam thinks a thousand is 12.  That’s a dozen, not a thousand, honey.

I had to reschedule Isaac’s 3rd birthday party because of the Iowa State game Friday night.

Every time I get dressed up, I go through my closet, hoping I forgot about something adorable in there that I could wear. Today, I actually found something adorable! Then, I remembered that it’s 4 sizes too small, and I laughed out loud.

I bought some lipstick samples from Bare Minerals.  I tried on the bright Barbie pink lipstick Saturday night.  And Sunday morning, I could not get that color off my lips.  The little girls at Sunday School loved it.

I plugged in 4 different hair appliances to get the job done this morning.  Blow dryer, straightener, and two sizes of curling irons. That’s sort of ridiculous.

Speaking of ridiculous, I kept trying to get Isaac to say that word the other day, and he got MAD at me! “No, that’s SILLY!” But yesterday, I caught him saying “That’s ridiculous,” (which sounds a lot more like “That’s dickless.”)

I love meeting new people, but be warned…I may pour my heart out within the first 10 minutes of meeting you.  Or I may share one of the short stories I shared today. Either way, prepare yourself!

Love, Katie

  1. When I get home from work I always scoff at the flat iron, blow dryer, and curling iron laying out on the vanity from the morning and wonder why I don't just find a way to be happy with my air dried hair. *sigh*

  2. I've been wondering what oil puling is all about.

  3. You make me laugh Katie! I especially love the last statement because that is very much you!

  4. Love these thoughts!

    I've wanted to try oil pulling, too. Please report back!

  5. Love the random thoughts!! Sometimes you just gotta get it all out there! Hope you have a great weekend.

  6. Katie can I sit beside you at the shower...function...whatever...I have to attend? You see, I also suffer from verbal eruptus, the need to fill in any dead air at a social function with whatever comes into my head first. It would be nice to leave a social engagement feeling like I may be invited back...if it wasn't for that mysterious rash I had on my arm in grade four.... You get the picture right? Love your blog!
