Happy New Year, everyone! I missed my one-year blogiversary (oops!), but things have been pretty busy for me, lately. I’ve (sort of) been doing this blogging business for a year, now. Best way to get back in the swing of things is with a good ol’ meme! (Is that what this is?)

(see this post by Katy Upperman for the chain of inspiration)

Salted Almond Chocolate Bites – These things are amazing and totally addicting. People never really know what I’m offering when I give them one and they are seriously blown away. (SO GOOD!)

P!nkJust Give Me a Reason
Alabama Shakes – I found these on the Grammys nominations page and have been loving their retro vibe ever since.
B.o.B.Don’t Let Me Fall
Girls Soundtrack (from season 1) – so much great music, including this Michael Penn song. Plus I Love It by Icona Pop. Also, White Nights by Oh Land.

My TBR is insane, let’s start with that. I have a couple manuscripts to read, but in the books that are published world, I’m reading This is Not a Test and The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden. Up next: Taken and Nobody But Us!

Football (Well, I was, until the heartbreaking–yes, HEARTBREAKING–loss to the Falcons) 😉

Catfish – Although I knew my husband face-to-face and we had many an interaction before we officially started dating, we got to know each other well over IM over a vacation, so I understand how relationships form online. As my brother-in-law said, though, those who are “Catfished” should have their internet privileges revoked. Truth?
Girls –
No joke, I’ve re-watched the first episode of this season three times. Love it. Oh, and Donald Glover being on the show? LOVE IT.
Friends/Sex and the City
reruns Always. Even with SatC, if it’s on cable, I will watch the edited crappy episodes. I have the box sets for both these shows so I really should just have a marathon some day. Both shows still make me laugh, so much!
Pitch Perfect –
I love this movie! Add that I have also watched Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit a couple of times in recent history, and maybe there’s a recurring theme…


Thinking About…
Friends – I’m so lucky, I think, because I have the greatest friends in the world. We don’t get to see each other often, but when we do, there’s no time lost. A couple of them are going through difficult, life-altering situations and they’re on my mind and in my heart constantly.

The Muse concert on February 1st!! The husband got me tickets for my birthday and I’m so pumped, especially after a great Lady Gaga concert on Monday.

A new semester at school. I seriously need the second semester shake-up (we keep the same students but the class periods get jumbled up).


There was a such a thing as grading fairies. It seems like I’m consistently wishing for more time?


Making Me Happy…
Classic music that, without fail, makes me happy (or teary, if need be): Michael Jackson, The Beatles, and Nirvana (I know–do they have any upbeat songs? But, I can listen to them all and love them) Try Unplugged if you haven’t!

And, as always, my family and friends make me the most happy!


Sorority girlfriends this summer (minus Heather and Jessica–we missed you)!



Me with my mom, aunt and cousins at Lady Gaga!

What are you currently LOVING?

  1. I love all of your pictures, Kari! Makes me miss home just a little. 🙂 Happy reading… I hope you love THIS IS NOT A TEST (I totally think you will!). And I obviously need to get ahold of those salted chocolate almonds… My favorite!

  2. I was just starting to get over the Seahawks loss, and then I read your post, haha. Maybe some of those salted chocolate almonds will make me feel better 😉
