Friday Confessional 04.29


Here I am, the one-trick-pony, once again surfacing in the blogosphere to link up with the one and only Mamarazzi for her Friday Confessional!

No preliminaries, just confessions...

I confess that I misbehaved in the theater last Friday night while watching Water For Elephants.

I confess that everytime Michael refers to Water For Elephants as Water For Donkeys I get irate!  Like I wanna scratch his eyeballs out.  He does it just to piss me off and get me all riled up.  He knows how to push my buttons.

I confess that I might have peed my pants in the parking lot of Abuelo's.  Just a little.

I confess that I laugh at inappropriate times.  Often.  The more I try to stop, the more I laugh.  I also do other inappropriate things that we won't discuss on the blog.  Today.

I confess that I'm just a little excited (ok, a lot) about the season premiere of Jerseylicious Love those hookers!

I confess that I have a crush on Scotty and I'm glad he didn't go home last night on AI.  Whew.  That was close.  I've gotta up my voting game.  Who's your fav?

Hope you all have a super fab Friday!! 


We Want To Know Wednesday : A little bit of random


I'm linking up today for week 2 of WWTKW!  Joining Impulsive, Shawn, Mamarazzi, and Jannette in some mid-week fun!

Thank the Lord for link-up parties, because I might never make a blog post.

I'm becoming a one trick pony. I'll try to rectify that. After I finish my next fan fic. Soon.

On with the show...

1.} What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex? Are you an eyes or a smile person? Maybe another body part?

Welllllll, I think I notice eyes first...and then I scan down to check out other parts *achem*...then I eventually make my way back up to their eyes...and jaw line...and hair. I love good hair.

2.} If a movie was being made about you, who would you like to see cast to play you? And would your movie be a comedy, drama, romantic-comedy, action film or a horror movie?

I think I would like Sara Rue to play me...she's quirky and funny and a natural redhead. 

It would definitely be a comedy w/ a romantic flair.

3.} Does your high school yearbook include a senior comment section? If so, share what you said about your future goals. Have you met those goals? If you do not have a yearbook, just share what your goals were when you were 18 and if you have met them. If you’re brave enough, include your Senior picture!

So, this was funny to look back on.  You kinda forget what your 18 year old self was thinking back then...makes me laugh. 

My goals were...and I quote..."Attend Southwestern A/G University or OU and major in psychology or education (apparently I like to leave myself with options), wait for Alan to get back (<----I totally forgot about this guy...'til yesterday), and see what happens! "

Thanks to IA for hookin' me up with some yearbook info. 

In case you're wondering, Alan was my (much older) boyfriend, who lived in Norman (where I went to school at OU and majored in Elem Education).  I had met him the summer between my Jr and Sr year.  I was head-over-heels for him, but turns out he was a womanizer/girlanizer.  We were ova about a month after school started.  Note to 18 year old self:  You shoulda dumped him WAY before then.  Your senior year would have been a LOT more fun.

For your senior pic...kinda blurry due to it being a picture from the yearbook courtesy of IA

4.} What latest trend simply baffles you?

I'm not really into the rompers...I thought those went out of style when we were 5?!

5.} When you walk into a room how do you present yourself? Do you walk in with confidence and command the attention of others or do you slink in and do your best to go unnoticed?

I think I try to blend...unless it's my party, then of course, I feel in control.  Otherwise, I usually just try to mingle with people I know until I get acquainted with any new people.

This was fun, Shawn!

Be sure to stop by one of the hosts' blogs and link up!!



Friday Confessional 04.22

I'm linking up once again with the cute-headband-wearin-red-vines-eatin-pink-lovin Mamarazzi


You should too.  If you say you don't have anything to confess, I call BS.  You're lying.  And you know where liars go don't you?  Coweta.  Yep.  And you don't want to go there.

I confess that I'm over-the-moon-beyond-excited about Water For Elephants being in theaters TODAY!!! 

I also should confess that I'm green with envy of anybody and everybody who has already seen it.  Our stupid theaters didn't have a midnight showing.  Lame.  If you've seen it, don't tell me.  I'll cut a b*tch.  I swear. 


Ok, not really.

I confess I take my Rob Pattinson business very serious.

I confess that I've been writing love notes to Rob in my new notebook that Mimi made me.

I confess that I'm planning on fangirling a lot tonight.  I hope my friends are prepared for the ridiculousness that is me in a theater where Rob is on the big screen.  It's their first time.  They're JK-in-a-theater-where-Rob-is-on-the-big-screen virgins.  Hope it's as good for them as it is for me. ;)

Well, I'm sure there are some confessions up in here somewhere that are non-WFE related, but my brain is all hazy with, this all you get this week. 

Hope you all have stellar weekends!!  *muah*


We Want To Know Wednesday : Friends


I'm linking up today for the first ever WWTKW with Impulsive Addict, Mamarazzi, Shawn, and Janette. This should be a fun mid-week meme...hopefully keeping me out of hiatus status, so I stay off of Impulsive's "big trouble" list. Each week there will be a new set of questions for us to answer on our blogs and link up with the Fab Four!

Let's get started... (cue the video for some scrolling/reading theme song for this post.)

Yep,  my friends are beautiful.  Wanna hear about them?  Here it goes...

IA, M, S, and J asked us to answer these Q's about our friends:
  1. Do you make friends easily?  Um, yeah.  I think I do.  I'm social and pretty easy to get along with.  I seem to have friends from every area/era of my life, so I think that equates to making friends easy.
  2. What 3 qualities are a MUST in a friend? 1 - honesty/trust.  You just can't have a good solid friendship without that.  2 - humor/fun.  I am a fun-haver...and I love to laugh, so if we can't do those things, our friendship is likely to be short-lived.  3 - common interests.  Let's face it without things to talk about or things to enjoy together, can you really have a "friendship"?  I think not. 
  3. What makes YOU a good friend? I'm loyal and trustworthy.  I LOVE to have a good time...and I have no shame in sacrificing my own dignity to make that happen.  If we're friends once, we're friends for life.
  4. Have you ever met a bloggy friend in real life? Yes? Tell us about the meet up. No? Who would you love to meet? So, yes.  I've met several blogging/online friends.  The first person I ever met from the blogging world was Melissa.  She used to be a regular blogger on a blog called The Crazy Daisy.  You can read about my trip to Denver to surprise her for her birthday HERE.  I've also met Julia from Brainella.  We met up at the Starbucks in Owasso while she was here with her family visiting family.  We talked non-stop and had a great time!  Of course, I've met all of The RHOK ladies, who I met through blogging and a few of them ended up coming to my first Twilight premiere party I threw for New Moon.  The rest is history.  Plus, I've met a lot of bloggers through our RHOK Outs.  Meeting bloggers is a favorite pastime!  I can't wait for next month when I get to hang out with Impulsive, Shawn, Becca, Vivienne, and Jen for a couple of days in Austin!!  It's going to be epic!
  5. Who is your best friend? Tell us about them. I kinda hate this question.  I don't like putting my friends in categories, per say.  However, I'll answer to the best of my ability.
First, there is Jordana.  She is one of my oldest friends.  We've shared a million and one experiences together...the good, the bad, and the ugly.  We've known each other since grade school, but we've been best friends since I was in the 9th grade.  We went our separate ways at college...she attended OSU and I attended OU.  You would think that would have been a deal breaker, but we managed to stay tight although we attended rivaling universities.  We both married Michaels.  She's always been there for me...maid of honors at each others weddings, births of our children, funerals, etc...and although we don't see each other in person as much as we would like, I know she would be there for me, no matter what...and she knows the same is true for her.

Then, there is Trisha.  We met through blogging...and we've never met in person.  BUT she's my person.  She is who I tell my deepest darkest secrets how much I weigh, and the dream I had last night involving Rob Pattinson and a volvo.  We talk on the phone occasionally, but we keep up with each other's daily lives through text.  We like share the same soul.  She's a kindred spirit.  I swear most of our text start out with one of us saying something and the other one saying "ME TOO"!  The top of my bucket list has Trisha's name on it...we must meet in person ASAP. 

I can't leave my cousins out of this list of BFFs. My cousin Lindsay has been in my life since the day she was born.  We've always had a special bond and it reaches across the miles, as she moved away and left me a few years ago.  We share everything and we count down the days until we'll see each other again. 

The same goes for my cousin Kristen.  She's my girl.  We share a love of shopping, Coach, and Starbucks.  She even indulges my Twilight addiction and went to The Twilight Convention with me last year.  She's getting married this September and I'm so looking forward to witnessing this next phase of her life.

And there is Alison.  My long lost cousin...who we didn't even know each other existed until she moved to Oklahoma from Arizona about 5 years ago.  It was kismet.  We were meant to be together.  We share an undying love for all things Twilight and Rob Pattinson.  She helped me plan my last premiere partner-in-crime.  She is my sushi-lovin-twilight-watchin-movie-going-wine-drinkin friend.  She left me and went back to Phoenix, but we are still close and miss each other like crazy.  Can't wait until she's here in November for Breaking Dawn!!

And of course, there are my 3HOs3...Impulsive Addict (Skillz) and Mona (X-Rated).  I love these girls like Charlie Sheen loves crack and whores.  We have the best time together at our monthly GNOs.  I've known IA for about my whole life.  We go way back to grade school, but we've just recently reconnected and made it a point to hang out.  Mona and I have been friends since the 6th grade when she moved to Dub Town.  She was in my wedding and we've remained close friends through the years.

And of course there are all of you guys...I love my BBFs!  What would I do without you all?!

Be sure to stop by and link up for the first installment of WWTKW!Photobucket


In Your Neck Of The Woods: JK's Hood

So, what's happenin' in my neck of the woods??  Mrs. Priss at The RHOK wants to know.

For this week's installment of IYNOTW, I decided to take you on a little picture tour of Dub Town.  That's what all the locals call the quaint (I use that term lightly) town I live in.

We have 3 stop lights...I knooooow, it's a metropolis.

If you ever visit, I can guarantee that you'll wait on a 99.9% guarantee.

For the tastiest char-grilled hamburgers in at least 100 miles, you MUST eat at Son's! (ignore the bird poo on my window...according to Michael, I "over use" windshield wiper fluid, sooooo, I'm always out.)

When you reach the highway, it's over...yep that's all she wrote. 

After that, nothing but wide open space...for the next 30 miles...then you reach T-Town...which we pretend like that's a "big city", but friends from REAL big cities tell me that it's not. 

I'll just keep pretending. 

Ignorance is bliss.

Now, try not to be jealous.  And don't everyone flock to NE Oklahoma.  We kinda like it a little less populated.

What's happening in your neck of the woods??  It can be anything pictures, a story, an event...whatever you'd like to share.

Stop by The RHOK today and link up!



Friday Confessional 04.14


It's Friday Confessionals with Mamarazzi!  I'll spare you the intro mumbo-jumbo and just get right to it...

I confess that I'm totally wrapped up in another *achem*smut*book/fanfic*achem*.  Brandy, text me and I'll send you the won't want to miss this one. #winkwink
Good news is that I'm 60 pages away from finishing it.  So, no worries IA, I'm coming back to the land of the living...eventually. #ilovefanfic

I confess that I was guilted into FINALLY posting my vlog #thatswhatfriendsarefor

I confess that this makes me giggle...a lot. #itsasickness #idontwantacure

I confess that Mimi knows me too well.  Anyone who thinks of transposing my face into a picture with THE Rob Pattinson is an angel in disguise.  I love you Mims!  Thank you for my newest fav item in my collection of Twilight/Rob memorabilia.  #yourock

I confess that I shopped 'til I dropped last weekend.  We shopped for 10 hours on Saturday and another 7 hours on Sunday.  #retailtherapyissoeffective

I confess that I have a few funny stories from our weekend trip, but I think my family (who often reads my posts) would shoot me for posting them.  I'm still in the dog house from my post about Facebook faux pas...and that wasn't HALF as bad as what I would be spilling this time.  So, I guess I'll refrain...for now.  #blackmail


Hope you all have a FABULOUS Friday!  I promise I'll be making the rounds today...I swear.  I also promise that I won't pick up a new story for a couple of weeks.  I'm afraid you guys will break up with me if I do.


The Monthly VLOG : Accent/Dialect Vlog

It's time! 
It's once again time for The Monthly Vlog hosted by Mamarazzi and Shawn!
This is month is an "accent/dialect" vlog, aka lets-all-point-and-laugh-at-the-okies/southerners.  I'm sure that's what they're up to.  They love to mention our southern drawl. 
WHAT?  So, we say y'all a lot.  I see no harm in that.
I'm here to amuse, so on with the vlog...hope you enjoy yourselves.

If you feel up to the challenge, go link up with Mamarazzi and Shawn!  I promise.  It's fun.
No.  Really.  It's fun.
I swear.
Don't look at me like that.



Happy List 04.09


This weekend, I'm happy that I'm away with my extended family on a little trip.  We rented a 5 bedroom cabin and there are 12 of us spending the entire weekend together in Branson, Mo.  So, as you're reading this, I'm doing a little...

and the guys are doing a little fishing...

so we should all be happy.

This could also end up on my Friday Confessional, so stick around.  You just never know how things are going to go down when all of my big crazy family is together.  I'll keep ya posted.

Hope you're all having a super awesome weekend!

P.S.  If you love cutsie headbands, don't forget to enter my Adelyn Stone Giveaway.  She has some other fabulous items, so even if you don't love headbands, hop over to her Etsy store and look around!



Friday Confessional 4.08


It's that time again...time to spill your guts, wipe the slate, come's FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL with the one and only Mamarazzi!
I don't have much to confess really.  I've been relatively "good"...well, as good as JennyKate can be.  I have my own standards, ya know. 

This week was a culmination of potential they ALMOST happened.  It went a little something like this...
  • I didn't eat any cheeseburgers...although I wanted to. 
  • I only had Starbucks one time...although I wanted to go at LEAST once a day. 
  • I didn't lie...except for a few white ones, but they don't count. 
  • I didn't slap this little kid on Isaiah's Field Trip yesterday...although he deserved it. 
  • I wanted to tell them that I'm not Mrs. Altman.  That's my mother-in-law.  But I realize they're learning to be respectful...and I respect I didn't.
  • I didn't steal anything...except for that pen from the bank, but IA assured me that they were there for the taking. 
So, I guess I'm saving up all my bad(ass)ness for now.  I'll be sure to let you guys know when I decide to cash in on it.
Hope you all have a FABULOUS Friday! 
P.S. Stop by and enter my giveaway from yesterday! (click here)
P.S.S.  I posted on The RHOK today.  We're doing a Pioneer Woman read-along.

Things I've Learned Whilst Building On And Moving Over

As we've went through the process of finishing up the add-on and moving our junk things over, I've learned some things.
  • We never need to buy a DS stylus again.  We officially have 17 of them...big, little, medium sized.  I counted.
  • I start off big and bad, "We're getting rid of ALL "baby" toys/puzzles/books/etc."  Then, I get all sappy and sentimental.
  • I'm still a sucker for wooden puzzles.  Apparently, I was addicted to buying them when Isaiah was little.  Now, I can't bare to part with them...even if I'm the only one who ever plays with them again.
  • 2 1/2 people and one big fat black lab living in 1176 square feet for 8 years acquire LOTS of junk.  You think it would be the opposite.  In my defense, I'm a purger...usually.  Except when it comes to wooden puzzles and baby stuff...oh, and books...I can't stand to part with books.
  • If I have one Twilight/Rob Pattinson related magazine, I have 200.  No lie.
  • I don't know how we fit this much junk stuff in that small of a space.  Perhaps we should be in the Guinness Book of World Records or something.
  • Going from 6 feet of cabinet space to 36 feet of cabinet space in my kitchen alone is LIFE CHANGING.
  • Going from my "laundry room" being in my kitchen to having my very own LAUNDRY ROOM is like winning the lottery.  It's amazing.
Here's a few pics...  

Keep in mind that it's not finished.  I still have to decorate, rearrange, organize and such; but it's progress!  We're still working on the old part of the house, more pics of that soon.

Hope you're all having a great week so far!! *muah*



In My Neck Of The Woods


The RHOK is introducing a new meme titled Into Your Neck Of The Woods!  It's going to be a weekly meme where you'll be able to link up and show pictures of things around you or tell a funny story of something that happened recently.  Most of all, it's just giving everyone a glimpse into YOUR life...where YOU live...and the things the YOU do

We want to know what's going on in YOUR neck of the woods!

Sounds fun, right?!

Today is the first link-up and I have to admit that I'm feelin' like a RHOKstar failure.  I had all intentions of going out and capturing something the guy that rides his horse down Main Street, because I'm sure that doesn't happen everywhere.  I also had thought about stopping and snapping a picture of this tree that people have put their shoes in over the years...interesting at least.

However, I didn't do any of that.  So, I'm flying by the seat of my pants...which is totally normal for me...and I'm going to show you what I see on my way to work on any given morning.

What?  Don't you see a goat tied up in a front yard on your way to work?
So, tell me...what's going on in your neck of the woods??

Stop by The RHOK and link up!


Favorite Things Swap Revealed!

I'm not sure how I got so lucky.  There's no way I deserved it.  You all know I can be bad.  So, it's funny to me that I got matched up with the Queen of Swapping, Miss Mamarazzi herself!  How did that happen??!!
Well, let me tell you, she knows how to spoil a girl. 
What is even crazier is that we have SO many favorite things in common!  Every time I opened another gift...and there were SO many...I was like "SHUT UP...that's my favorite TOO!"
I was in need of some sunshine yesterday until THIS showed up on my desk...
Funny how that works out.
Her wrapping was so CUTE and so "Mama"!  Adorable polka dots...and brown paper packages tied up with "string". :)
Here's what she sent me:

  1. Spitz.  She said they are her favorite summer tanning snacker!  I think Micahel will confiscate them to munch on while he's watching the Cubbies.
  2. Orbit Sweet Mint.  Holla!  It's my fav too, Mama!  You just saved me from buying a new pack!
  3. Dial NutriSkin.  She said that it makes your skin soft and smells SO good.  Can't wait to try it!
  4. Little boxes of cereal.  Yum and cute!  I love small packages.  She said they're her fav late night snack. 
  5. Downy Wrinkle Releaser.  Yep, that's my method of  "ironing" too!  I despise ironing, so this is the trick for me!  Thanks for the little bottle.  I stuck it in my bag that I take to work with me.  You know just in case I forget to "iron" before heading out the door!
  6. McCormick Salad Toppings.  SHUT UP!  Mama, this is my absolute FAV thing to put on my salad too!  So so good.
  7. Warm Delights Minis.  150 calories of molten chocolate cake goodness.  I'll definitely be indulging in one of these soon.  She said I didn't have to share, so I don't plan on it.
  8. CUTE pink pedi set w/ pink polish, of course!  Her favorite way to keep her toes looking cute and PINKTASTIC!  I knew there would HAVE to be something pink in my package...I mean, it's Mama's favorite things we're talking about here! 
  9. Beauty Rush lipgloss from Victoria's Secret.  LOVE!  I needed some new lip gloss.  This went straight to my purse.  I'm wearing it now!
  10. Cadbury Mini Eggs.  She confessed that she ate one of the bags she bought and for that I would like to say "THANK YOU", because you saved me from eating them both!  Look at it as your good deed for the week.
  11. A new mini journal/notebook.  Thanks, Mama.  How did you know I was needing one?!  I'm glad it's your favorite way to keep track of your thoughts.  It's already getting put to good use!
  12. Her Favorite Playlist.   I'm currently listening right this moment.  It's good stuff...Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Colbie mellow and happy.  Thank you, Mama!
  13. Rice Krispie Treat...extra large!  They're Mama's favorite road trip snack.  Maybe I should save it for Austin.  I'll share with Impulsive.
  14. Fun card games.  Go Fish, War, Old Maid.  She said it's her FAV way to spend time with her family. 
  15. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers.  My fav too, Mama!  They are magic.  I have a little boy who is fond of art and they've saved my walls more than once.

Can you believe that isn't all?!  I know.  It's ridiculous.  She also spoiled Isaiah.  I thought I had a cute video of him, but turns out I forgot to push record.  I'm such a retard.

She sent him a $25 to Game Stop, Legos, silly putty, and some Baskin Robbins gift certificates...for a Mom/Isaiah date!  He LOVED that and was over-the-moon-happy about it all.  

Mama, thanks again! 

You rock! 

I already knew that, but you just solidified your status as Swapping Queen!

If you don't already follow Mamarazzi, you should!  Get over there and check out all of the other boxes of Favorite Things and see what I sent her!
