OVERRATED! i have spent the past 48 hours, packing, un-packing, re-packing, moving, and removing millions of boxes from my apartment to a) my storage unit, small quaint, fabulous (and color coordinated!) or b) my mom's house, large, homey, fabulous and also color coordinated. moving is exhausting and boring and exhausting. i am not a fan. and if you are wondering...yes, we did look as happy and fantastic as the peeps in the photo...say cheese!
oh, and just about two minutes ago to round out my fabulous weekend. i broke my tooth. no bueno! stupid wheatthins. no wonder i like to eat cookies...never broke a tooth eating a cookie. and no, the cookie eating didn't CAUSE the tooth to break. totally unrelated incidents. totally.
no more blogging. no more happy thoughts. i am going to sulk. or call pace, maybe both. if anyone needs me i will be in my room...wait, i don't have a room anymore. this day sucks. sorry, mom, i know you hate that word, but it describes my weekend thus far. ya'll are invited to my pitty party...starting now! no rsvp's required!
here's to a better week!

that is an awesome alliteration! i rule. ok, so i am a couple of days behind on posting. for all my dedicated fans...i am sorry. as ya'll know friday was a big day in my life.
day one of the nordstrom anniversary sale. cambria and i shopped in style. we got a bright and early start, left our fabulous apt at 6:10am. perfect timing. we pulled into the university mall, yes, in provo. i am sorry, but their nordstrom is just better than fashion place. anyway, we pulled into university mall with enough time to sample the new vivianno beverages at starbucks. both katie's and cambria's give the chocolate banana vivianno two thumbs up...what a delicious breakfast beverage! really a beverage to replace any meal, but it does make for a scrumptious morning. cambria's have theirs with a shot of espresso, katie's pass.
i would describe my shopping experience this year as minimalist. the only thing in my life i can call minimalist! i only bought 3 pairs of shoes...which was so very very hard. ah, how i love shoes. actually, i think i love trying on shoes as much as i love shoes in general. a very successful sale is just what i needed to round out my stressful emotional week. i left feeling totally satisfied and stayed very close to my budget...which is really a "suggested" amount. i was not expecting to find my pithy run dmc t-shirt, or my glorious steve madden riding boots. what's a girl to do? i couldn't not pass. i tried, but, they just cried when i put them back in the box. it was all i could do not to wear them home. yes, i know it is july and it is hot. but for a boot lover like me...every day is a boot day! especially when they are riding boots! my very favorite type of boot. next to my cowboy boots, my ankle boots, my uggs and my slouchy black ones! yeah, yeah, i know. "hi, i am katie and i am addicted to boots."
for all ya'll who have not yet ventured to the sale...get on it! as i said in the title, fabulous fall fashion finds! sale ends on august 3rd!
i want to give a shout out to my bff-shopping buddy-roomie...
c-note i will miss our shopping dates. next year lets break in the nordstrom sale in the fabulous oc...what could be better than katie, camb, cali, nordstrom and h & m? love ya! k-fab

rarely do i mention movies on my blog. but, after seeing 'the dark knight' last night, i had to. although, the movie is rather dark and not for kids, i would highly recommend it. i have a horrible habit of falling asleep in movies, basically once the lights are out so am i. last night we went to a 10:30pm showing and i stayed awake for the entire movie. now that speaks highly for a movie! i haven't seen a movie i liked this much since 'no country for old men' or 'there will be blood'...i must really like dark movies! just wait, in a few weeks i will have my daddy daughter date to see 'mama mia!' and from then on, all my posts will be dedicated to abba! back on track katie. talking about 'the dark knight' not abba.
i will say this...
i have a horrible horrible phobia of clowns (and mimes). yuck, creeps me out. to the point that i start to have a panic attack and cry uncontrollably. no kidding. the opening scene was really hard to watch. lots of clown masks. which are actually worse than just face paint for me. a few other scenes toed the line of katie wanting to cry, but i held it together.
wondering how i could stand to watch the movie with my horrible fear of clowns and mimes, and well, white face paint? the jokers make-up is always smeared and partially wiped off of his fore head. strangely, i felt better knowing that i could see his real face through the paint. just a little warning in case anyone else wanting to see it has my same fear. you will be ok. but, be aware that there are clowns...thankfully no circus music, or i would have run from the theater crying like a 3 year old.
katie highly recommends 'the dark knight'!

oh that's right ladies...my official countdown has begun. we are quickly approaching my second favorite season of the year! no, it is not summer...we are already half way through. too soon to be excited about fall. hmm...wondering which season i am speaking of?
this friday is the...
NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE!!!!!
true, i am saving money for my upcoming move, (thanks for the reminder little white conscience on my right shoulder!) but NOTHING and i mean NOTHING stops me from being a valued guest at this sale (that's right, you tell them little red conscience on my left shoulder! you spend my money so well!!!). unfortunately this year, i will not be attending the pre-shopping event today. but, friday will come soon enough. and if my beloved items are still available in my color and size, it was truly meant to be.
how i love you.
