Q/A with Katie-- Part 1.

I'm sure y'all have seen these Q&A posts around.  Some of my fave ladies have tagged me, so I'm joining in!  However, I'm making up my own rules (I'm a rebel-- deal with it) and not listing 11 facts.  I think all these questions are plenty!  In order to not have one super long post, I'm splitting them up into multiple posts.  

First up-- Questions from Meghan!

1. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
Nothing really profound.  My name is obviously Katie, and I write about my life.

2. Who is a blogger you look up to?
I don't know if there's any blogger that I "look up to" per se.  But there are plenty that I love.  And you can find a (very incomplete) list here.

3. What is one thing on your bucket list?
Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower.

4. If you could have any kind of pet what would it be?
A puggle!!  I love these dogs.

5. If you could only go to one concert, who would it be?
Easy-- Billy Joel.

6. How did you find out that Santa wasn't real?
I asked my mom to be honest with me-- she and my dad were Santa, weren't they?  And she said yes.  I was a rather discerning child.

7. What is something that is currently popular that you can't understand why it's popular(i.e. a certain product, TV show, website, whatever.)
The whole vampire phenomenon.  I just don't get it.  This isn't sexy to me...

8. If you could have one superpower what would it be?
I'd be able to fly so that it wouldn't matter that Donny is in Texas and I'm in North Carolina.  Also, would it be considered a superpower to be able to make my trees grow money??  If so, I pick that instead.  I can always pay for my flights with my tree-grown cash.

9. If I were to look on your DVR/tivo, what would I be surprised to find?
Hmm... probably not much.  Although I do record and watch General Hospital.  My college roommate got me hooked, and I love it.

10. If you could go back and re-do one thing from your past, would you, and what would that one thing be?
Nothing.  Everything in my past has led me here, and I'm so happy where I am.  So I wouldn't change anything.

11. Do you have a lucky number?

Next are the Questions from Legally Lovely:

1. Are you a Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda, or Carrie?
Well, I'm a lawyer like Miranda, but I'm don't think I'm anything like her.  I don't think I'm really like any of them.  Although if I had to pick, I'd say Carrie is the closest.

2. If you could go on a date with ONE Hollywood hunk, who would it be?
James Roday-- he's so funny!

3. A plane just landed in front of your house. Where are you going on an impromptu vacay?
Dallas, duh.  But, assuming that wasn't an option or Donny was with me, I'd go to some island in the south Pacific (Fiji, Tahiti, Bali...).  I want to stay in one of these huts!

4. If you were on The Bachelorette, what over-the-top date would you plan?
A trip to Yankee Stadium-- on Opening Day or during the World Series.

5. If you could switch bodies with one person for a day, who would it be?
Brooklyn Decker-- quite possibly the perfect female specimen.  Except I want to keep my hair.

6. What is your favorite book?
Oh, that's impossible to pick.  Some of my faves are Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Eve's Daughters by Lynn Austin, and The Last Juror by John Grisham.

7. What is your absolute dream job?
In-house counsel for the New York Yankees!

8. What are three words that you would use to describe yourself at 8am?
Sleepy, unkempt, and (possibly) cranky.

9. You're lost in the Amazon for a day. Who do you want with you, and what one item do you have?
Donny and some sunscreen-- gotta keep my super pale skin from burning!

10. Would you rather hitch a ride on the space shuttle, or get a brand new car of your choosing?
Brand new car.  I have NO desire to go into outer space.  And for the record, this is my dream car: 

11. What is your idea of a perfect Friday night?
Cuddling on the couch with my boo watching a movie or tv.

12. What is one embarrassing fact about yourself that you would normally never blog about, but now you have to?
Pssh-- yeah right.  Nice try, Emma!!  If I haven't blogged about it by now, there's a reason!  But, here's a funny embarrassing story that I'll tell.  :)


  1. I loved learning more about you in this post! It's impossible for me to choose a favorite book too.. I read WAY too many!

  2. I don't understand the vampire phenomena either, still waiting for an explanation on that one! & like you, I am hooked on a soap, Days lol. Gotta remind myself, my life isn't so bad lol.

  3. Fun post! I'm a soap fan too. Love Y&R, and I occasionally watch B&B and Days :)

  4. Those huts look absolutely amazing. Someday...and I had to look up Brooklyn Decker. I've heard the name, but don't know anything else about her. You're way more hip to pop culture than I.

  5. Thanks for answering my questions! (except you totally copped out of my embarrassing one - no judgment here; I'd do the same thing!) I love your Bachelorette date; I bet those producers could hook that up for you.

    I absolutely do not understand the vampire craze either, especially the Twilight vampires. ugh. But, I am an avid follower of True Blood, and there are some HOT vampires on that show!

  6. I want--no, I need to stay in one of those house/hut things, wherever they are. Bali? Fiji? Tahiti? I'm in.

  7. fun! a lot of my answers are the same. minus you hating on twilight. i'll admit, i love them.

    your request for help with a new blog name seemed to be fun/work pretty well so i stole your idea! help me come up with a new subtitle!

  8. I'll go see Billy Joel with you!!! :)
