If I could bottle any smell and make it my own personal and signature perfume, it would be the smell of Barnes & Noble.
I love shoes more than breathing. As my brother, Aaron, would say to me: "Katie, you have more shoes than days left to live." My shoe fetish is a direct result of my mother's shoe fetish. She loves shoes more than her own life.
I love tomatoes. I could eat them all day. I am a tomato person.I enjoy violent testosterone charged movies. You're welcome, Nate.
I would kill to have redheaded babies.
I have heartburn almost everyday.
I would love to live on Prince Edward Island.
I have never had a cold sore, but I always get cankers.
I'm semi-in-love with my cat, Atticus.
I love seeing semi trucks without a trailer on the freeway - they look so funny!
I'm obsessed with interior design magazines. I love to cut out my favorite chairs, colors, patterns, accessories, room combos.... what will I ever do with these random clippings? I don't know yet.
I love photo editing. I may take things a step further someday and take a photography class.
If I could sing like anyone... It would have to be a tie between the lead singer of The Cranberries, Dolores O'Riordan and Annie Lennox. I would make you call me Crannie Lennox.
I could play Bejewelled all day.
My all time favorite radio stations are KRCL 90.9 and Classical 89.1.
I love candy. I LOVE candy.
If I could, I would live in JCrewland where everyone is classy and stylish. I would drive around in my old-fashioned cars, play croquet, go boating with my super classy and super hot hubby on my own personal lake. Everyday.
I don't drink pop... not usually. I'll take a Fresca if you have it. And I do love ginger ale - it reminds me of being on an airplane, it reminds me of my dad, and also makes you burp like a freaking champion.
I prefer rainy days.
I sometimes get confused when asked to turn left or right while driving. So sue me. So much pressure!
My dream someday is to get my four front teeth all veneered up. (The front four are in a state of disrepair - I've chipped them up so badly throughout my life. But I've worked at dentist offices all my life and they have set me up pretty good until I have the $$$$$ for new teeth. Thank you, old bosses! I owe you!)
Some of my most favorite memories are having dance parties with just my little brother in his room. We are awesome.
I hate Celine Dion... I think she is a creeper. But her new album, Taking Chances... It simply rocks my world.
I could watch Masterpiece Theater Classics until I die. I love them. I love PBS.
I am a horrible pop singer. I really am. That is why I'll never ever do American Idol. If they ever have Opera Idol, I'm in.
My heart beats for Mason Jennings.
I have a loud/shrill voice on the phone (I'm told), sorry.
My middle name is Floy. For real. After my Grandma on my dad's side and my great grandma on my mom's side.
I'm pretty right winged politically. Of my own choice, thank you very much. I ain't ignorant.
I love my little car. With all of my heart.
I want to be Gwen Stefani. She rules.
I want at least 6-8 children. Husband? Are you out there?
I love wearing heals. To be stomping around at 6' or 6'1'' is exhilarating.
I'm a mac girl.
I was born a blonde, and I will continue to be blonde... even if I have to fake it a little.
I love to read. Anything.
I love my family more than anything. More than shoes I think.

I just had an eye exam and they dilated my pupils. I left and put the super cool glasses on to protect my eyes, and for a second I thought I actually looked pretty cool. Don't they make regular sunglasses like this now for all the cool kids?
Me and Kristin a few years ago.
Lastly, I'd like to dedicate this sweet music video to Kristin. I love you, girl.

Do we sometimes feel like this was me these last couple semesters? Yeah.
I would just like to say THANK YOU to all the people in my life who took such good care of me while I was a literal starving student. My parents, my brothers and sisters, my dear friends, my co-workers... you are all so great!
Mom and dad: thanks for letting me raid your fridge, freezer and cupboards. "Grocery shopping" at home is the best! Oh how I love mini pizzas, egg rolls and chicken nuggets. Thank you for the Sunday dinner leftovers (stimulus packages) that lasted me well into the week. Oh, and thank you for the candy, Mom. Oh how I love candy! Dad, thanks for the lunch money.
Thank you to the LDS Institute of Religion Lunch Deli. Your creamy chicken noodle soup in a bread bowl for only $2.50 rocked my world. I seriously need to find the recipe to it... so good!
Thank you to all the guys at work for buying lunch or breakfast for me randomly. One day I came to work and they had bought a box of Cup Noodles and had stacked them in a pyramid on my desk. So funny. They also gave me a $50 gift card to Zupas. Uh, thank you! Sheesh, that will definitely come in handy.
Thank you to my brothers and sisters for paying for my food on many many occasions and for always looking out for me.
I can't forget to thank my dates this last year. I'm sorry it didn't work out between us, but just know that I got through one more meal (and if I was lucky, leftover lunch the next day... sorry!) because of you! Sorry you had to feed someone else's wife...
Thanks to my cute friends for letting me mooch off their food all the time. Thanks to the Barths for their amazing generosity, the Elders for the yummy heartburny meals (love ya Teds!), my roommates who are always willing to feed me...

Here is Casa de Grande... The super sweet Villa we will be staying in.
This is the view from another balcony onto our sunbathing deck that sits above the open ocean. Yeeeah.
