  2. Woohoo, congrats on the award Kate!
    And hooray, I have something to blog about tomorrow :D.

    It is probably a good thing that I do not own an exercise ball, as I would use it like a giant, round trampoline :D. & shoe shopping is blech!

  3. Thanks for the award! I was watching my nephew tonight jump on the exercise ball and thought it looked like a blast. I'd never get around to actually exercising!

  8. That's really cool you keep in touch with your HS foreign exchange student! I went to my junior prom with one of ours...his name was Josef from Slovakia and I always wonder how he's doing.

  9. Aw thanks for the award! You made my Tuesday :)

  10. Thank you so much, Kate!! You deserve all the awards you get. :) Oh, and I can't believe you don't like shoe shopping?!? ~ Courtney

  11. Ooops, I was still logged in from my family picture blog for that last comment... ~ Courtney

  12. Thanks so much for the award! You are just too sweet! And I absolutely love that quote you have. It's so true!


  13. Hi Kate! I'm a little late, but congratulations on your award! I'm lovin your blog too.

    Your writing is so cute! My handwriting may be too atrocious to display.

    I learned a bit about handwriting analysis a while back. I can write nicely, but based on my every day handwriting, I'm pretty sure I am serial killer material.

    You look more like a positive easy going woman who sleeps in her la-Z-boy. :)
