My Top 10: Summer Smells

I LOVE summer. So I'm sharing my top 10 summer smells with you! 
And I think I'll turn "My Top 10" into a semi-regular series!

10. Warm car smell. You may not agree with me about this one... but I love the way my car smells after it has been baking in the sun for hours and I have either been freezing in an office or am wet and chilly from teaching swimming lessons. I really like the warmth
 too, but the smell is fantastical.

9. BBQ-ing in the neighborhood, or at my house! 
You already knew this was coming... 

8. Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Mousse. 

My hair is naturally pretty wavy... but I can ha
rdly stand to let it dry naturally in the winter, because I am always cold. However, I am more tempted to wear the curls naturally in the summer, especially if I am washing my hair more frequently because I'm in and out of the pool all the time. To tame the curls, I use this mousse and it leaves my hair smelling fresh all day!

7. The cool freshness of a early evening rain shower. 

6.  DKNY Be Delicious. (Perfume!) 

You see, about the only time I ever wear perfum
e is when I have something festive or fancy to go to. And it seems like I only regularly go to festive and fancy things in the summer, so I associate the two. 

5. Chlorine from a pool.  

4. Freshly cut grass. Need I say more? 

3. Tacos, tacos, tacos.
You know I'm a fan, but even homemade tacos' can't beat the smell of a good little taco hut where the price is just right!

2. Leather from a baseball glove. 
Image from Art.com, John Wong "Baseball glove with ball and dirt on it"

I used to play softball and warm summer evenings remind me of that time. The glove instantly takes me back to those times. Currently Mr. RH is playing church league softball so I get to smell his glove semi-frequently (or once weekly).  

And my absolute favorite summer smell is
1. Sunscreen. I like the smell because I usually put it on when I'm about to get into the pool. And reading a book on a float in the pool is probably my all-time favorite thing. But it also smells like childhood and I am all about that. 
And my favorite Sunscreen, that isn't really sunscreen or sun protection, but it still smells like a dream is Hawaiian Tropic Golden Tanning Lotion! 

I'm here. And I'm still writing...

Blogging and Real Life Friends.

Question: Do your real life friends know you are a blogger?

I have yet to tell any of my real life friends that I blog, except for one in real life friend that I know has a blog. I have found other real life acquaintances or friends from an earlier season or friends of friends that I know of, that have blogs, but I'm a total creeper when it comes to reading their blogs... because I haven't introduced myself.  

Part of me desires to remain anonymous. But its one of those things, where I catch myself almost saying things about my blog to real life friends... or more often I catch myself almost mentioning reading someone's blog  to someone who does not read blogs, and therefore, I would have to explain to them the whole situation.

Quite the predicament if you ask me... because I feel like I am keeping things hidden and like I have this whole area of life that I am suppressing, which might also explain some of my non-blogging and lack of interesting things to say.

So... should I tell a few friends about my blog? Also, I wonder if some of those people I know or know of, have found me and are keeping quiet too, because they don't know I have found them... Interesting huh? 

Just something I'm thinking about.

A Bit of Weekend Recap. A Bit of A Life Update.

Sorry I have not been blogging very much! I have some stuff going on that I don't particularly feel inclined to write about, but I have had a creative block for writing about anything else either... 

Anyhow, I had a wonderful weekend this weekend. I drove home to see my parents after I got finished with school on Friday mid-morning. I took naps, got in the pool, went shopping with my mom, drove around and ran some errands with 
my dad, hung out with my dog, saw all of my aunts and uncles who were in town for Father's Day. All in all the family had a really nice time!

I'm back to work on my big paper and currently getting my applications ready for job interviews. I am hoping to get this cool position to start after I graduate next May, but applications go out in September! so I need to start getting things together right now! Crazy early it seems, but apparently this is the way...

Last night I skipped Handsome's regular Monday night church league softball game to Shred! and bake some cookies. I made chocolate chip cookie bars! I used a different recipe that I'm not toooo pumped about, but it was good to change it up a little. The one I used was a little simpler than the one I normally like to make (and I didn't have any nuts), but overall I am happy with the product. Hopefully not so happy as to finish off the pan. I may be taking some with me to school to share with my seven classmates and Professor...

And tonight Handsome grilled some steaks and burgers and I prepared the condiments / side dishes. Okay okay, I cut onions, tomatoes, unscrewed the lid on the pickle jar, sliced cheese, warmed up some chile's, and got some lettuce for a salad and a burger topper! Have I bragged about Handsome's grilling capabilities before? That man sure knows the way to my heart!

And after dinner he went to go hit some golf balls while I ran up to the one of the malls and hit a few stores. Anthropologie, Ann Taylor and Ann Taylor Loft. I really want to buy this black Maxi dress, but I want it to go on Sale!! but I'm not sure it will so if I want it enough I may have to shell out the dough... Sheesh!

 I apparently need to make a decision soon as the 2 Loft's in my area each only have 1 dress left in my size. Decisions. Decisions. My life is so not difficult today.

My List of Names.

Well friends, I am compiling a list of friends to invite to the Beth Moore Blog Study by Jennifer Rothschild!

Please pray over the following names: that the Lord would touch the right ladies' hearts so that we might have a wonderful group to get together and that God's glory would spread between us.


Thank you for your prayers and support! Not all of these ladies are included in the group that I posted about last week, however a few of them are. And a few have been to church before in their lives, but I'm not sure it was ever very real to them. And the last few are strong Believers that I would be thrilled to spend more time with. Some of these ladies are my age and some are closer to my mom's age, so I'm trusting the Lord to build the right group that we would be in fellowship together according to His purposes.

I'm here. And I'm still writing...

101. (Posts, Unfortunately Not Dalmations).

This is my 101st post! I realized as I was typing the Latte post that it was 100th, so instead of not posting it, I decided to celebrate 100 posts by acknowledging them in the 101st!

I know many people celebrate their 100th post by doing a giveaway or writing 100 things about themselves. I don't have anything to give away (probably because I still don't really know how to use AdSense) and I never get through the full list of 100 things on other peoples blogs and I personally don't think I"m that interesting so I'm just sharing 11 with you now. 
  1. I wear socks to bed.
  2. I just realized blogger will make a list for you.
  3. I don't like to fly in airplanes. 
  4. I get my feelings hurt sort of easily. 
  5. I love to wear coats and jackets (probably because I'm usually cold). 
  6. I order a non-fat, no-foam latte at Starbucks.
  7. I like to go shopping or sit at a book store or coffee shop more than almost anything. 
  8. I like floating in my parents pool with a book as much as those things I just listed.
  9. I met Mr. Ruggedly Handsome in high school, but we started dating in college. 
  10. I wore cowboy boots at my wedding.
  11. I love my family, Husband, Mom, Dad, & Brother the most. 
There are 11 things that I think are new to most of my readers! Some of you have been with me for most of the journey so far, so thanks for joining me. For those of you who are fairly new,  Welcome and I hope you will continue on with me. 

I'm here. And I'm still writing. 

P.S. This is a bonus because of the post title... For at least a solid five years of my childhood I was obsessed with Dalmations. I wanted one sooooooo badly.

Latte in the Morning. Latte in the Evening. Latte at Suppertime.

Okay, that would be too many latte's but....

How perfect is this?

To call Starbucks Customer Service Hotline, dial:


Aahhh! I love myself a Latte in the morning or in the evening!

Thoughts in the Middle of the Night Post

I feel like I write blog posts a lot when I can't sleep at night. And tonight is one of those times. I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing for the blog, but I am going for it anyway. And I can only begin to imagine what Mr. Ruggedly Handsome will say to me tomorrow after he reads the post, because I made a comment to him about sleeping well right before I went to bed. 

Hmm. Funny how one comment can totally turn your night upside down. 
Note to Katie Beth: Don't talk about sleeping well right before you go to sleep! 

Anyway, I thought I would provide you with some random thoughts that I am having tonight, while I am awake, partly as therapy for myself and partly because some of them might actually be a little interesting!

1. Handsome and I have been referring to ourselves in the third person, periodically, since Memorial Day weekend. He started it (or maybe someone else in his family). And it became quite humorous and not overly used. I am still enjoying it.

2. I have seen a number of spiders in or near our apartment. This disturbs me and when the waffle-y material of my pajama pant legs creeps up, I feel like there are spiders biting me. Gross.

3. My muscles are tired, but not the tired where your body hurts when you get into bed because you have been up and doing so long. This type of hurt has something to do with just recently worked out and haven't relaxed enough yet to keep from twitching. This twitching keeps me awake.

5. I would like to have another draft of The Draft finished by the end of July, but that means I have a lot of work to do between now and then.

6. I'm not really certain what people do in the evenings after they get off work. I'm a little tired when I get home, but if I exercise, my energy increases somewhat. However, not studying or avoiding studying is new to me sort of and I'm not sure how to fill my time. Especially since every other time I have had evenings free and haven't been in school I have had lots of organized activities or lots of books I wanted to read. I read a lot already during work hours, so reading at home isn't high on my list of things I want to do, even though I probably enjoy the home reading more than the school/work reading. 

7. I also think I have problems sleeping when I am cold, but it never ceases to take me a while to realize that being cold is part of the problem. Once I get a sweatshirt and beanie on, and usually add an extra blanket, I am finally able to stop twitching, stop thinking, and rest!

8. I put a beanie on right before I started this post and I am starting to relax as we speak. I mean, as I type and you read!

9. At some point, The Draft, must become a finished paper. I haven't come to terms with that one yet. 

10. I dislike scheduling appointments, perhaps more than any other task or errand that is part of life .

11. I don't think many persons of my age read obituaries online. I however read the obituaries online for my hometown's newspaper, probably about once a week. I just realized the other day, while speaking with my mom, that this isn't normal until a person is in their forties, fifities, or maybe even sixties. 

12. I think I have probably shared enough personal information for one night. I'm getting warm and sleepy, but I wish you all a Happy Thursday!

I'm here. And I'm still writing...

Oh p.s. (13.) I know of someone with the last name Blog. Today I realized that if this person had a blog it could be called "The Blogs Blog" and that made me laugh a little to myself. 

A Predicament. Schooling. And Thoughts on My Witness.

Dear Blog Friends,

I have a slight predicament and need some advice.

I currently have a few close Christian friends, but most of them live out of state, or are soon too. 

I really want to get together a group of ladies, girls, women, I mean "siestas," to do the LPM Blog's summer study, but I don't know who to ask. I know I only need a few siesta's to do it with me, but I'm not sure exactly how to approach it. 

I have prayed some (and probably not enough), and I don't have a clear answer about what to do (possibly because I haven't prayed enough).

Currently, most of my girl friends are from my school. And my school is very liberal, very un-godly, very "progressive and tolerant" as they like to say. Which means, very un-open to Christian ideas or theology and especially to Christ. It means completely intolerant of Christians, because they think Christians are intolerant of their desires and what they think are rights to gay marriage and abortion and feminism.

All of my friends at school,(I think all) know that I am a Christian. They know I go to church regularly, that I didn't live with Mr. RH until we were married, that I am a believer in something they don't really know much about. At times, I have had some small conversations with many or most of these ladies, but usually they don't hear what I am saying beyond the "I'm spiritual" context they put it in because spirituality (not of any partiular kind) is familiar to them. Because "spiritual" is a term they are comfortable with. Because to them (in our post-modernist culture), that what is true for me (Katie---that Christ is the one true Savior) isn't necessarily true for them (Liberal Feminist---they can live how they want without boundaries or rules and there may or may not be a creator(s) and if there is he or she, may or may not care about what is going on or about them individually). 

This culture (meaning my school environment) is filled with  post-moderns, spiritualists, new-agers, atheists, or bitter anti-Christians, and it is very different from the culture I grew up in, which was very much like a part of the Bible belt. People who don't go to church in the town I grew up in aren't offended by the fact that some people do. People who don't go to church in my town don't balk when someone says "I'll pray for you." But people at my school now, do. The people in my school now, are offended and basically write you off as some sort of religious wacko if you believe in something that makes them uncomfortable in some way. 

I don't know if I am saying this very clearly, but I am trying to say that I want a group of Christian girl friends in the city where I live and I want my friends at school to know the love of Christ. I have lived here for basically 6 years, and have had periods where I had Christian girl friends, but none really long lasting, and none with whom I can really do this summer study now. And while I have an idea of a few Christian girls to ask, I have been considering expanding my invitation to the study to the girls I am friends with, who aren't Christians.

But I don't know if these ladies will be open to a Bible study. Or a summer Christian study. Because they basically don't have a reason to be.  It isn't part of their values. It isn't something they understand. But some little part of me wants it for them.

So I'm thinking about asking them.

And this is a difficult thing for me to do, because I continually  struggle with how to best witness to them. If I talk about Jesus all the time, then they write me off and don't hear anything I have to say. However, if I never mention the Lord in our conversations, then they never really know me. While I recognize that really my friendships with non-Christians are and will always be somewhat superficial and will likely not last very long, I still want these friends to come to know the Lord. 

But its a scary place to be for a girl like me, because these are my friends! And I'm not the best at making friends and I don't have a large group of girl friends in this city (Christian or non-Christian).

But there is a tension. I know as a Christian, that I may be the only one who plants a seed in their life or that God might have a plan to use me in someone's life, so causing friends to be uncomfortable or being uncomfortable myself in sharing, is bound to happen at times. And that God can use that uncomfortableness to bring Glory to His name. So as a Christian, I am required, or obligated, to speak or offer opportunity, even if it makes me uncomfortable and even if it means I offend someone so that they don't want to be my friend any longer. Eternity hangs in the balance. 

So having thought through this, I am considering inviting some close school friends (along with some other girls) to the study with me. I think I will do so by email, so they have time to consider it and so the Lord might move in the right women's hearts that I might grow closer to Him and that maybe someone else will come to know Him or return to knowing him (as some of these school friends also grew up in churches, but may have never really known the Lord). 

I would appreciate your prayers as I spend a day or two more deciding who to "invite" that I might be led to invite the right women, and that the Lord might soften their hearts and prepare them to maybe do something they aren't used to doing. And that if this study won't be appropriate for those women who are not yet in relationship with Christ, that the Lord would make that clear as well and would keep me from hurting or isolating these precious ladies. 

I'm here. And I'm still writing,

Thank you for your prayers! 

Mr. Ruggedly Handsome didn't get too sick, so that is good. He had a few rough nights and a little misery throughout the past few days, but he didn't get stuck in bed with a fever and need a nurse. Good thing too, because I was out of town for the weekend visiting my parents.

Now we are both just recovering from the whirlwind that has been the past few days or weeks. (Sorry I have lost track.)

ABC's of Me. All You Possibly Want To Know and Then Some.

Stole this from someone, somewhere (okay, probably multiple people if we are being completely honest) but I don't remember at this point, because I typed it out many days ago and thought I could use it sometime when my brain was tired, like on a Friday (after I actually worked 5 days in a row)...

A - Age: 25

B - Bed size: King, and thank goodness, because I am a really light sleeper so I need the space to keep from waking up every hour.

C - Chore you hate: Cooking. But only when I haven't been to the grocery store and have a lot going on with school. I like it more when I have time to think about it and work on it. 

D - Dog's name: Gustus Augustus is my parents dog. He is the closest thing I have to a dog. He is a quality animal, right Daddy? and he has lots of other names but Gus is his "official name". Handsome's parents keep his childhood dog named Molly. 

E - Essential start your day item: Toothpaste.

F - Favorite color: Green probably or white. 

G - Gold or Silver or Platinum: I like silver. I have white gold I like also and I like rose gold, but I don't own any. Not big on yellow gold and I don't own any plantinum.

H - Height: 5'5"... okay, okay, I'll tell the total truth. I'm 5 feet 4 and 3/4 inches.

I - Instruments you play: I have played the flute and piano, but it has been a while. I more recently played handbells and would play them now if I could find a choir that needed a player and that practiced at a time when I'm not in class. 

J - Job title: Oh, I'm unemployed. Or maybe more accurately, I am a student. 

K - Kid(s): Not yet. We still haven't even been married a whole year!

L - Living arrangements: ? What does this mean? I have a husband and we have an apartment. 

M - Mom's name: I call her Mom.

N - Nicknames: KaTee. 

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: Junior year of high school. Something like dehydration, that thankfully wasn't appendicitis. And it was several nights, if I remember correctly. 

P - Pet Peeve: Oh that would be the sound of nail clippers doing what they were created to do. 

Q - Quote from a movie: 
Kathleen Kelly: I love daisies. 
Joe Fox: You told me. 
Kathleen Kelly: They're so friendly. Don't you think daisies are the friendliest flower?

---You've Got Mail.

"The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don't know what the hell they're doing or who on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino." 
--- Joe Fox, You've Got Mail

R - Right handed or left handed: Right

S - Siblings: 1 brother 

T - Time you wake up: Hmm, 7:11 a.m. lately. 

U- Underwear: Pardon? If I have ever heard of a question that crossed the line, this would be it.  

V - Vegetable you dislike: Well I very much dislike the smell of brustlesprouts, but I can't say I have actually tried them. One roommate during college made them at least once a week for a year... that was a rough time in our friendship. ;)

W - Ways you run late: Not sure. Usually I like to take everything I could possibly need with me, so that I'm not cold, or having sinus issues, or bleeding from my cuticles from my incessant need to mess with them. So I usually am thinking about getting a jacket, on my way out of the door... and then getting cuticle nippers or Advil or Zyrtec, or my Bible for church, or a pair of socks in case my feet get cold when I am studying. Sometimes I can anticipate all of this before I am on my way out of the door (like if its for something I absolutely cannot be late for or if it is something very routine, like going to school every day of the week) but for something like church, then I usually get up early enough to leisurely get ready while Handsome is getting ready and then I will remember about a million things I need on our way out of the door. 

X - X-rays you've had: I think mouth / teeth x-rays are it. I had an MRI once, but that is beyond the scope of this question. 

Y - Yummy food you make: I'm just gonna go with Tacos. 

Z - Zoo favorite: Polar Bears, even if they shouldn't be there. And I really like big cats and elephants too. 

So I'm here. And I'm still writing,

Prayer Request. Semi-Selfish.

 Please pray for me and the Mr. 

I am currently awake, freezing, exhausted, and have soreness in my throat. I left our bedroom and set up camp in the other bedroom, where I closed the air vent (too cold) and piled up a lot of blankets. I couldn't relax between worrying, trying not to cough and trying not to disturb the husband.

He is hopefully sleeping, because he has a big day the next 5-ish days basically. Handsome needs to feel at the top of his game as he will be traveling for work Thursday and Friday, possibly helping his brother and sister-in-law pack up to move on Saturday, and he has some testing that must be done on Monday, which it would be wonderful if he felt well for.

You see, Sister-in-law came over for dinner last night and she wasn't feeling well. And even though I Lysol-ed the heck out of our house, I'm afraid both of us aren't feeling that great at this point. We also saw her for some time Saturday and my throat has been tickling since then. Poor thing hasn't felt well in over a week, but this just isn't the most opportune time for Handsome to not be feeling well as there are so many things going on!

So really, I don't need the prayers as much as he does. I can handle a little bit of being under the weather, especially if it means he doesn't get any! I have time to rest in the evenings and won't be doing anything too strenuous any of the days. But that may not be the case for him. And I heard from his SIL that his mom might have it too and she'll be around for the weekend events as well... I really don't want him to get sick!

 I reminded him to get some Zinc, and to load up on some emergen-C too.  And I hope he will be able to rest enough and will limit his time with the sicklies even if it means less time with his brother (right before they get outta Dodge). 

And those are the only things  that we can humanly do(that I can think of for now), so now I'm asking for divine prevention or healing for something as small as what could be a common cold or flu, but that has the possibility of taking place during a very important week. 

The Lord already knows what is going on and He has a plan for what is best for the entire upcoming situation... I'm going to rest in that. 

And thank you for any prayers you might offer on his behalf.

A Velour Track Suit, Really?

(*In case you were wondering about yesterday's post: It tastes more like a pear but sort of has an apple-y texture. It was not as juicy as a pear... about like an apple. And mine wasn't nearly as mushy as some pears I have purchased, and yet, not quite as crunchy as an apple. Definitely interesting. And worth a try if you find them in your local grocery aisle. Now onto today's post...)

I was just reading some articles on the New York Times webpage and came across this

I found the article rather interesting.  And I can't get over the fact that some lawyer wore a track suit into court! And while I think that cases should be decided on their merits and not what the lawyer was wearing, I am utterly amazed at her lack of respect to the institution.

There are certain jobs and careers that require conservative, not always thrilling clothing. I don't want to see a doctor wearing a track suit and I'd rather not have to stare at the chest of a teller when I go to the bank. (Perhaps this is why ATM's are so popular.) I would feel similarly if I could see down the blouse or see the legs on my dental hygienist! And if I had a lawyer representing me in court, I would definitely like him or her to be wearing clothing that doesn't draw attention to their self, which means that they would probably be wearing a plain old suit without too many frills or too much skin. Especially if I was paying them some 100 dollars or more an hour to represent me!
But more seriously, I think the article points out some fundamental issues we have in our society. The display of overly seductive or brazen clothing that is showing up in our court rooms and on our streets is  evidence of a much larger societal issue. That women and men have overly sexualized the society, such that women feel the need or desire to dress skimpily, to gain attention (be it the wrong kind) is disturbing. But I find it even more so in what were once considered professional settings. 

Personally, I feel very sad for women, when I see too much cleavage, too short of shorts, bra straps, and even really high heels. I feel like they are searching for something, maybe something they aren't really even aware of. They are seeking a response, some attention and probably from both females and males, because there is an old adage (okay, I don't know how old it really is, but you know what I mean) that girls dress for other girls. So when a woman has on clothing, or lack thereof, that draws attention to herself, she does so for the response of men and women. And she does so because she is empty.

I do not have friends that wear very inappropriate clothing, because most of them are secure in their identity and they have fathers, husbands, brothers, mothers, and sisters that love them and care for them as they are. I wish that men didn't have to see women scantily clad, inviting them to sin. I wish women didn't feel the need to wear very little or wear clothing that is inappropriate for the setting they are in, such that some man might notice or that she might make another woman (be it a certain kind) jealous at the attention she is getting from men.

I dont really have a good way to close this post. I just merely wanted to note (on the record for you lawyerly types) that I feel like the dress we see on the streets, on our campuses, and apparently in our courtrooms, shows how hurting our world is. And how much they need a Savior. And how much they need people who know Him, to show them a different way.  

I'm here. And I'm still writing,

Deliciousness. In Fruit Form.

So in case you have been worried, my kitchen is fully stocked once again. We have more fruit and vegetables in the refrigerator that you can imagine. We have healthy snacks, unhealthy indulgent snacks, we have our old staples and we have some new things to try. 

One of those new things is called an Apple Pear, which is also know by many other names, including Asian Pear. At the grocery store, I found the adorable things on display, all bundled up with an inviting sign. I promptly picked two up, placed them in my bag, and proceeded to tell Mr. Ruggedly Handsome what I found. 

Me: "Honey, look what I've got... Apple Pears."

Mr. RH: "Oh good, apples and pears... but I thought we were going to get fruit at the Market" (another grocery store with fabulous produce).

Me: "Oh, no no, these are Apple Pears, not Apples and Pears. And this is the only fruit I got, but I wanted to get them while they are available." 

Mr. RH: "Oh Apple Pears is a fruit? What is it like?"

Me: "I guess its like an apple pear combo?"

Mr. RH: "Ok, so what is it?"

Me: "It's an Apple Pear." 

At this point, both of us realized we weren't communicating super well, so I pulled them out of my bag and showed him. Then he understood a little more.

I proceeded to try them ASAP once we returned home. And I liked them. Not my absolute-most-favorite-fruit-ever, like-I'm-gonna-cry-if-I-never-get-another-one, but they are good, and I would definitely get some more! 

So you say you have never seen an Apple Pear... well, let me show you.

See what a cute little protective blanket it comes in? 

Above you can see the little fruit all naked. 

And there you can see it beginning to be devoured. Get yourself one! And Mr. if you are reading this, the other one we have is for you so help yourself to it, and I won't report you as a perpetrator on my blog. Promise. 

So I'm here. And today I'm eating,

Oh, and in case you were wondering about the nutritional value of the Apple Pear,
