My 5 Biggest Fears



Hi all!  I'm a little behind this week because of the long weekend.  Speaking of, how was everyone's?  I hope you had a great time!  I was up at the lake all weekend with family and friends.  It was a blast.  But I digress.  This week's Listable Life is about fears.  I started thinking about this and writing them down, because of course, I make a list of topics before starting to write my list.  I think I need help.

Anyway, when I started to write them down I noticed something.  They all start with the letter S.  So of course, I had to Google this to see if there was such a thing as Fear of The Letter S.  You know some-weird-word-phobia.  Fun-random trivia fact for the day:  there isn't.  The closet thing is Fear of Words, also known as Logophobia.  Feel free to use that your next cocktail party!  (And for the record, I don't actually fear the letter S, it just happened to be a weird coincidence).

Here are my 5 Biggest Fears, that all start with the letter S, and a few fun trivia facts as well!

1).  Spiders (also known as Arachnophobia):

I HATE SPIDERS!  I am totally freaked out by them!  In fact just writing this and thinking about them, makes me feel like they are crawling all over me.  So there will be no picture.  And I am moving on.  Right now.

2).  Sharks (also known as Selachophobia):

I grew up in Miami, FL.  I hung out on the beach, played in the ocean, went out in boats on the ocean.  I suppose I shouldn't be, but I am terrified of sharks.  So I REALLY don't like going in the ocean.  People have tried to change this, but it just won't work.  One of the nicest gifts I got (around this topic), was from my high school boyfriend.  He brought a glass-bottom bucket out on the boat one day, so he could snorkel and I could lean off the side of the boat and see underwater.  It was great!  I could see pretty fish and never had to get wet.

And then there was my brother.  The one time I managed to snorkel for about 15 minutes without completely hyperventilating, he tells me, (after the fact) that he saw sharks in the same location the week before.  Jerk.

3).  Snakes (also known as Ophilidiophobia)

They slither.  Doesn't that say it all?  And the poisonous ones? Eeeeeek!  What about the HUGE ones?  Even creepier!  I jump 15 feet in the air anytime I come close to one, see one, think about one.  Thank goodness my Mom is able to suck it up and get rid of them when the rest of us can't.

Needless to say, I avoid the snake and spider exhibits at places like the zoo.

4).  Surviving Childbirth.  (no fancy name)

Isn't this on every woman's fear-list at some point in her life?  Especially before they have kids? (Well, those who want to). Pregnancy?  Pain?  Pushing?  In a word:  terrifying!  Any of you Moms out there want to tell me any different?  That it's not scary?  Lie to me!  Please!

someecards.com - At least the end of the world would mean no pressure to have a baby.



 5).  Success (no fancy name)

Let me clarify.  I am not afraid of success or being successful.  Just the opposite.  I am afraid of not being successful enough.  It's not so much a failure thing.  We all fail from time to time.  And even though it's never fun, it is usually a great learning opportunity.  I'm not even sure how I define success.  My career, and money are absolutely part of it, but I also think of success in terms of the rest of my life.  Will I be a successful mom?  Will I be a successful wife?  Will I make a successful contribution? And those only scratch the surface of "success," at least in my book.  It is very important to me to make my mark on the world and be successful.  So whatever that means, I'm afraid I won't succeed.  Maybe I should call it un-successful-a-phobia.

My cousin Andy, read this poem at our Great Aunt Louise's funeral years ago.  It has lived on my fridge (you can buy it as a magnet) ever since.

Weekend Road Trips

Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of road trip season for us.  Although, truth be told, we spend A LOT of time in the car heading to various weekend destinations year-round.  But most weekend time during the summer, we can be found at the lake.  Packing and unpacking can get very old, very quickly.  Fortunately, I can leave several things up there so I don't have to haul them back and forth.  But what do I do with those items that I have to take with me?  There has to be a method to my madness, otherwise I would go mad!

 So what will a typical weekend of travel look like for me this summer?  Well here you go:



Weekend Road Trips


Did I mention I am an over packer?  Because I am.  A HUGE one.  If there was a 12-Step program, I should probably be in it.  Even with leaving things at the lake, I will still pack way too much stuff. Every Weekend.  But it is how I roll. 

I have my main weekend bag to cart "everything" in. (I use this term loosely because I am never able to fit everything in one bag.)  In addition to the various clothing items & shoes I will pack, there are jewelry options, my flat iron (and case because I always throw it into my bag hot), cosmetics that will go back and forth, a wristlet for the boat and/or errands, dinner, etc. and my boat tote.  Every girl needs a tote that she can easily wipe down.  And if it gets a little wet, oh well.  (For the record, the boat tote does live at the lake, so that helps.)  I also have my zippered pouch that get all of the left overs thrown in.  Phone chargers, a last minute items, etc.  At least they are all in one place!

I usually don't have a problem squeezing "everything" into my main bag.  THEN comes aaaaaall of the extra stuff.  The laptop, the dog stuff, the camera bag, the zillion electronic chords and chargers we end up bringing, the few last things I forgot to pack in my weekend bag that I probably don't really need but am bringing anyway.  And it is really easy to throw it all to one tote and carry it to the car.  The hubs will try to blame all of the over packing on me, and then he will inevitably slip a few extra items in as well.  So I am not entirely to blame.  Just mostly.

Yes, I am aware I need a packing intervention.  Thanks for pointing that out.  Are you really doing it any better?  If you are, please tell me!  I would love to have some packing pointers!

5 Things I Regret...


This week's Listable Life is about regrets.  I don't really like the word regret.   I try very hard not to regret anything.  But there are a few things, that if I could, I would go back and do differently.  Most of them revolve around my wedding.  And no, it wasn't the groom I picked.

Before I got further, let me set the record straight.  I LOVED my wedding.  I LOVED planning my wedding.  I had the best time EVER at my wedding.  I think I had the best wedding ever!  (Doesn't every bride think that?)  But, it all happened really fast.  We got engaged and 6 months later we were married.  For those of you who have planned a wedding or are planning a wedding, you know what I mean.  6 months is not a lot of time.  And I would not have wanted to stretch the planning process out beyond a year.  Or even a whole year.  But those 6 months were stressful.  There was a lot to do in a short period of time.

So I write this post, not for you to feel bad for me - and the last thing I want to do is upset anyone who worked hard at making our wedding the best wedding ever (so please don't be upset because I'm not kidding, it really was) - but so hopefully someone can learn from my mistakes.  Because there were several things that were really important to me that I regret not happening, or happening.  So learn something from my "whoops" moments, and then have your wedding be the best day ever.  Because no matter what, it will be.

1).  I regret being sick on my wedding day.

All of the stress, lack of sleep and huge, emotional life changing-ness of the day hit me while getting ready.  And so did my vertigo.  I never took the time to let the fact that I was getting married really sink in.  There was just too much to get done.  And it all hit me on my wedding day.  It took me forever to get ready, we were running behind, and that just stressed me out even more.  I lucked out (mainly because my cousins and bridesmaids were awesome and moved mountains to make me feel better), and finally started to feel better, but it took awhile.  It would have sucked to miss my reception, because let me tell you.  It was a freakin BLAST!!!!  (See, I'm not joking.  A BLAST!!!)

 


My advice:  Take the time to let everything sink in, BEFORE your wedding day.  And for the love of god, GET SOME SLEEP!


2).  There were a few pictures we forgot to take.

Because I was stressed and we were running behind, I completely forgot about some pictures that were really important to me.  There is a picture from my grandmother's wedding.  She is on the stairs with her bridesmaids, and I really wanted to re-create that picture.  And I completely forgot about it.  I was so stressed out, I stopped caring about what was going on.  Good attitude at the time, bad in hind site.  We also missed a few pictures with important people.  When things get going, it is just really tough to do/remember it all.

(And by the way, most of you have probably seen my wedding pictures at this point and you know they are to die for!!!!!  So I can't be too upset!  And if you haven't, check them out)

My advice: make a list of your absolute must have's/do's for the day and put someone else in charge.  Then you don't have to think about it, and you won't miss anything.



3).  My Aunt Judy didn't get to go wedding dress shopping with me and my Mom.

Growing up, I was the only girl on my Dad's side of the family.  Which was great.  I got to cry if my cousins picked on me too much, and I got to be the tag-a-long.  But the best part about being the only girl, I got to spend a lot of time with my Aunt Judy.  She is my second mom, she did a reading at our wedding and she is one of my best friends.  For years, when I thought about wedding dress shopping, it was going to be me, my mom and Aunt Judy.  Unfortunately, because of our wedding time crunch, I had to go shopping and pick a dress without her.  It still makes me sad to think about.

(Aunt Judy is also the hot blonde in the gold dress, in the picture above.  And she is going to kill me for posting pictures of her, I'm sure!  This one is from my "Auntie's Luncheon" the Thursday before our wedding)

 

My advice:  If you can, make the special moments happen.  There was no way for me to change this one.  I am really glad that I got to get my wedding dress in Miami, but we did miss her while my mom and I were shopping.


4).  I didn't get a "mother-daughter" moment the day of my wedding.

As many of you know, the day-of is total chaos!  And our wedding was no different.  There were so many people around, it was nuts!  And they were all there because they loved us and we loved them, and I wouldn't change it for a million dollars.  But because of all of the chaos, my mom and I didn't get much time together, which was tough because my Mom is my rock.  She worked so hard and was working so hard that day to make my wedding special.  So we didn't get to have that "oh my gosh I'm getting married!" moment.  She helped me get into my dress quickly, and off I went because we were WAY behind schedule!  But, at least we have some pretty pictures together!  (By the way, thanks Mom for everything!!!)

 

My advice:  Take a second to enjoy the day with your mom (and dad for that matter).  It's your wedding day, and it is over in a flash!  Those moments are the ones you will remember.


5).  I wish we had given Buoy a shorter hair cut and taken more pictures with him.

In hindsight, man was that dog shaaaaggy!!!  I was so afraid of him getting cut too short or getting a bad hair cut, that his hair ended up being too long.  <sigh>  Oh well.  He is still a pretty cute fluff ball.  And let's be honest, in my mind, there is no such thing as enough pictures with our Buoy dog.  We could have had a million, and it wouldn't have been enough.  Look at that face.

   

  My advice: Get him/her groomed a month before hand and have a clean up done right before the wedding.  It gives you plenty of time for a bad hair cut to grow out, without him/her being shaggy.

I'm sorry.  I kind of feel like this was a depressing post and it wasn't meant to be.  Seriously, my wedding was AWESOME!!!!  I want to do it all over again, in part to fix a few little things, but mostly because it was SO MUCH FUN and it went by way too fast!!!!!  I want to go back and savor each and every moment.

So that is my last piece of advice:  Don't have any regrets about your wedding day.  Just have a blast and enjoy every second!  Because, I know I sure did!

Photo Friday - Routine vs Excitement

I know this isn't exactly a photo, but when I saw it, it was too good to pass up!  Story of my life!  Anyone else feel this way?  This weekend, I am going to enjoy a weekend of routine and boredom, because it will be the last one for awhile.  So bring on the cleaning, the laundry and the sleeping in!  And maybe throw in a dash of doing nothing for a few hours.  A month from now, I will be begging for routine after all of the excitement of summer and weekend road trips.

What are your plans for the weekend? Routine or excitement? Either way, Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend!

5 Little Known Facts About Me

This week's Listable Life, from Nicole over at Moments That Define Life, is very fun, but also tough!  I have been slightly stumped.  Some of you who read this are family and close friends who know A LOT about me.  And some of you I have never met and you are learning about me by reading this blog.  So what is the happy medium?  Hopefully this is it.  I hope you learn something new about me!


1).  I have four piercing in one ear.

And two in the other.  I have two holes in both ears, and two piercing in the cartilage of my left ear.  This was the worst thing I did as a teenage rebel, so I'm ok with it.  I only wear earrings in the main, "normal" holes in my ears.  One earring in each ear.  And you hardly notice the other holes. 

2).  I love all things Monogrammed.

It's a new love.  I thought it was so funny growing up that we had towels with letters on them.  Now, I can't get enough of all things monogrammed.  Isn't funny how things change?  I even lucked out, my new initials (post-wedding) are the same as my husbands and mine.  We got lake towels (beach towels to the rest of you) monogrammed as a wedding present. And I was so excited to get towels with my new initials on them.  Only to go "Oh wait....those are our initials...whoops!" (mine:  KBR, ours:  KRB)





3).  I love coffee mugs.

This may have something to do with my love of coffee.  I almost collect them.  Almost.  I'm trying to get a grip on it, but I have coffee mugs from several places I've lived, ones we registered for and then ones that just make me happy.  They are even better monogrammed.





4).  If I could wear yoga pants to work, I would.

'Nuff said.

5).  My idea of heaven on earth is a gorgeous summer day at the lake.  This is no surprise to those of you who know me.  But for those of you who don't, hold on to your boot straps.  Now that summer is here, expect to hear A LOT about life on the water.

Photo Friday


Sorry for the short post this Friday!  We are celebrating my hubby's birthday this weekend, so I am trying to finish up last minute packing, errands, secret shopping, etc before heading up to the lake to celebrate and squeeze in a nano-second of R&R.  This photo describes the chaos perfectly. 




If you aren't peeing your pants laughing yet, what is wrong with you!  Just kidding.....sort of.  Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Thirty One Giveaway & Katelyn James

Nope, I'm not the one hosting the Giveaway.  Not today anyway.  But, I am the one sponsoring it.  And, if you haven't checked out my cousin's blog, you really should!  Yes, I am fortunate enough to be related to none other than Katelyn James!  If you don't know who she is, shame on you!  Just kidding. =)  But seriously if you really don't know who she is, you have to check her out.  She is the world's most AMAZING wedding photographer!  And I'm not just saying that because she shot our wedding photos and our day after session when I water skied in my wedding dress (yup, you heard me) or because we are related.  I'm not biased at all.  =)

Katelyn is actually my hubby's cousin, so she is a "new" cousin of mine.  I am one of those weird people who not only knows their second-cousins-once-removed, and third cousins, I love them all!  And we are GREAT friends!  I don't see them enough (which sucks), so thank goodness for technology.  Getting to marry my husband was cool, but getting to be related to a star in the blogging and photography community, even better.  (hmmm maybe I can sell autographs??)

If you haven't seen Katelyn's amazing wedding photos all over Pinterest yet, you may have seen her office or other home remodels.

Look familiar?  Maybe I just notice it because I see it everywhere.  Ok, so anyway, back to THE POINT now that I have made a HUGE digression. Katelyn is hosting a Thirty One bag Giveaway on her blog!

So go check it out!  Especially if you are in need of a Mother's Day present.  Or maybe you want to do a little shopping of your own.

Are you interested in doing a Thirty One Giveaway on your blog?  Let me know!  I love doing them!

PS - I apologize, today's post was a shameless plug.  Not only for myself and my Thirty One business, but also for Katelyn.  But for family, why not!  And be honest....you love Katelyn. (And I pinky promise not to do this too often.)

5 Things That Drive Me Nuts - About Myself??

This week, Nicole over at Moment That Define Life, has us listing about things that drive us nuts.  About ourselves.  Oh boy.  And I have to be open and honest about this on my blog?  Yikes.

Ok, here I go.  Diving in head first.

1).  I am not a morning person.

And even more than that, I am a person who requires a lot of sleep.  I would love to feel rested and not always be exhausted, but I don't.  And it drives me NUTS!  Because I want to be rested and energetic, ready to take on the world everyday.  And sometimes I do wake up feeling that way and make it all day long, go go go.  But more often than now, I am slow slow slow.  It is really annoying.  It drives me nuts.

Hello friend.



2).  I can't keep a room clean for more than a few days at a time...

Which is SO ANNOYING!!!  It is completely baffling to me how I can spend hours and hours picking up and cleaning a room, only to have it be a complete mess again a few days later.  How do bombs go off that quickly?





3).  I LOVE potatoes.

In any way shape or form.  French fries, baked, hashed, with cheese, without cheese, you name it.  I want it.  I would eat a potato in some form for every meal of the day!  Why can't I love something healthy, like broccoli?  I like broccoli, but I would get really sick of it all day every day.  But not a potato.  Yum.  Ok now I need to go find some french fries.....




4).   The older I get, the more easily I get overwhelmed.

I handled stress much better when I was younger.  And the sad part is, I'm not exactly old.  But, I feel like I get overwhelmed and stressed out by less the older I get.  And is so annoying!  Because I used to be able to handle 1800 bouncing balls, no problem.  And I still juggle a lot, but it's not the same.  And we haven't even thrown kids into the mix yet. Maybe this is the universe telling me to take on less, who know.  But I hate that I can't handle the world, all of the time, anymore.  It really drives me nuts.

This is what I feel like when I am overwhelmed.  


5).  I can't keep a plant alive to save my life.  Or its life.

And I've tried.  Believe me, I have tried.  I like plants. And flowers.  And would love to have them around; they are pretty, happy and cheerful.  We have a great area for hanging plants on our deck.  But I don't even try.  Because they will inevitably die.  


  Poor flowers.  This is what always happens.

30 Blows - A DIY Attempt

Crafty is not a word I would use to describe myself.  Those of you who know me, know this a true statement.  For those of you who don't know me, well you are able to see first hand how not-crafty I am.  Most of the time, I think, if I can buy it, why make it myself?  But, thanks to Pinterest, a whole new world is slowly opening up to me.  A world of simple DIY projects, that I may actually be able to handle.  A world where making something, really is more special than buying it.  Some of the things I have found are not for sale.

This was my first attempt at making something myself, that was inspired by what I saw on Pinterest:


                                Source: Uploaded by user via Katie on Pinterest



I love how pretty, and nice and neat this looks.  But, I also know my limitations.  I don't have a way of printing something like this.  I mean, I have a basic printer.  And I know I could find a template somewhere.  But, to make it look really nice, I need a laser printer.  (Right?  I'm just guessing.  Please tell me otherwise if you actually know how to make things look like this!)  So, I adapted this design to make it work for me.

Oh and for the record, these photos suck!  So I apologize.  They are certainly not Pinterest worthy, but it was the best I could do at the time to document my project.

If you want to scroll the bottom, you can ruin the surprise and see the final product. (I know that is what I would do).  But I'm going to take you through the steps I went through.  First, shopping.  Here is what my my shopping list looked like:


The twist top jar came from HomeGoods.  
The Gum Balls came from Amazon. Man do I love free 2 day shipping with Amazon Prime.

Here is what my shopping list looked like broken down:








Buoy was really curious about what I was doing.  He even dropped his toys to check it out.


After purchasing everything, I put a label on the glass jar.


Then I wrote on the chalkboard label, 30 Blows, and put the gum balls in.  And tada!  The finished product!  It's not as pretty as the inspiration, but I was still pretty proud of myself!


So the one problem I ran into: I only bought one bag of gum balls.  This jar would hold at least two bags and probably a little bit more.  So my finished product looked kind of funny.  But, for a first attempt, I will take it!  I ended up filling the rest of the jar up with bubble gum my husband was able to grab from Walgreens.  It wasn't ideal, but it still looked cute.  Sorry, I forgot to take pictures.

So, this my first DIY attempt.  What do you think?  So easy right?  And I hope the birthday who got this as a gift liked it.

And because it is me, and I love my Buoy dog so much, I'm going to end with a last shot of him.  Because apparently, this was the BEST toy we ever could have given him!  He loved the sound of the gum balls against glass.  So who knows!  My next project might be a home made dog toy.




What is your latest DIY project?

Photo Friday - Florida

Today's blog post title has a lot of alliteration.  But, I FINALLY have a second to post a few pictures from our trip to Florida, which was a month ago......and I'm ready for another vacation already.  Isn't that sad?  You catch up on sleep, get all relaxed, get a great tan and then are SLAMMED back into reality.  If I pretend really hard, I can feel the warm sunshine and hear the ocean.  Ok maybe not.  Let the count down for Memorial Day weekend begin! 

Enjoy these few shots of our trip.  I used Instagram (my new favorite obsession).  We had such a great time (yes we are those weird people who LOVE to spend time with our families) and can't wait to go back!  

Our view every morning.




Sunset every night.


Someone has a rough life.


The one night we went out to dinner, we came back to this.  Our 17 lb dog is Hercules, I swear.  How on earth he did that, we have no idea.  But clearly someone has decided he is too old to be caged.  And he was a very good boy while we were gone.


Hands down the BEST birthday card I have ever received.  My mother-in-law found it months earlier and saved it.



My stash of birthday loot. (Did I mention it was my birthday while we were down there?)  I think my family knows me pretty well.  Anything pink is ok by me!


We really didn't want to leave. 

Anyone have a great pictures from a recent vacation they want to share?  Happy Friday and Have a Great Weekend!!!!!

5 Things On My To Do List Right Now

This week's Listable Life is day late.  Which is ironic because it is about the things on my to-do list.  If you haven't figured it out by now, I LOVE lists.  Not only do they help keep me organized and focused, but the feeling of crossing things off is the BEST!  And let's be honest, when I say help keep me organized, please don't think that I am actually an organized human being.  I try.  Really I do.  And then life happens.  So writing lists also makes me feel better when things get completely chaotic.  And this seems to be one of those weeks. Most weeks lately have been chaotic.  Hence, the severe lack of blog posts in April and hence, this post being a day late.

So.  This also means I am going to quickly list 5 things, check this blog post off of my list, and then move on to the rest of my to-do list!

1).  Read Found It. A Field Guide For Mom Entrepreneurs by Jill Salzman Founding Mom of The Founding Moms.


Source: Founding Moms


If I had written this post yesterday, you would not have seen this on my to-do list.  I was at a Women in Business event this morning (my new favorite group by the way) and Jill Salzman was our speaker.  And she was FANTASTIC!  I enjoyed her so much that I bought her book immediately following the event.  I don't do that EVER!  Usually, if I think I might want the book, I walk away and think about.  And inevitably forget about the book and never buy it.  But I had to have this one.

Am I a Mom?  No, not really.  Unless you count being a Puppy Mom. But I empathize with balancing a crazy schedule.  And I know that once we do get around to having kids, that schedule is going to get even crazier.  So I better start preparing now, right?  And I will take all of the advice I can get! 


2).  Finish setting up my Thirty One business.

There may or may not be more on this in the future, but for the moment, I have signed up to be a Thirty One Consultant.  Hi my name is Katie and I am A BAG FREAK!  Admitting it is the first step, right?  I LOVE purses, totes, cosmetic bags, bins, etc. etc. etc.  Not only do I get a discount to  buy bags for myself, but get a discount to buy bags as gifts.  Did that sound good to me? ABSO-FREAKIN-LUTELY!

Thirty One Bags




We go to so many weddings, showers, birthdays, a year that I am always looking for cute, clever, personal gifts to give.  Enter Thirty One.  I received some of their bags at one of my wedding showers last year.  Love them.  Use them all the time.  So why not give them to others?  I've had other direct sale businesses before (still kinda do), and I will be the first to admit, I suck at being my own boss.  But, theses are BAGS. PURSES. TOTES. <sigh>  They just make me happy.

So, I'm going to give it a shot.  And hopefully it works out.  But if it doesn't, oh well, I still get to keep my bags. (Did anyone else did get a creepy image of me, in a corner, with a crazy look in her eyes clutching her bags for dear life?  No?  Ok, then it was just me.)

3).  Figure out what to get my Hubby for his birthday.

It is coming up soon and I have no idea what to get him.  And of course, I have to be clever.  And not break the bank.  I am open to any and all suggestions!!!!


4).  Pack For This Weekend

We have a wedding this weekend.  A friend of mine from college.  And even though it is out of town, I consider it going home, since we are going back to my college town.  So I figure out what I am wearing to the wedding, and pack all my stuff.

5).  Get my returns done.

I have several bags of things (most clothes, but a few other random items) that I need to return.  See, I HATE trying things on in the store.  So, I inevitably buy the wrong size and have to return whatever I purchased.  I have a few stops to make (Target, Old Navy) and I just need to get them off of my to do list!  I usually do things like this over my lunch break, but lately I have either had lunch meetings or have been so busy that I have had to work through lunch.


Thanks again to Nicole over at Moment That Define Life for making me write a list about my list. =)  I love it!

 

What does your to-do list currently look like?
