The Greatest Headband

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Lizzie Fortunato If You're Going to San Francisco Headband - $230.

This headband is the coolest thing I have ever seen. Too bad it is crazy expensive! Large headbands are a great way to cover up your hair on bad/greasy hair days. I'm inspired to create this headband (on a budget) .... I'll let you know how it goes!

Kids say funny things

Today at work, one of my little kindergarten girls proudly announced to the other kids at the table, "Hey guys, Ms. Katie shaves her armpits!"
It was fantastic. If only she knew the gift I was giving her by shaving my armpits.

Happy Friday

ASU for grad. school

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

It's official! I sent in my letter of intent to ASU today!

I was having such a hard time choosing which graduate program to go to. I had three really good programs to choose from, and I didn't feel God leading me one way or another. UofA was out of the running when I wasn't offered funding and had no prospect of a job. That left ASU and UofO- and since then, I have been torn. UofO would be such an adventure, but ASU would be safe and predictable. UofO was offering me funding, and ASU had not offered me anything. It was really hard to pass up free school. I made a pros/cons list (a very detailed, organized one) and still didn't feel the Lord leading my heart toward one school.

I don't think I am very good at listening to the Lord.... so, yesterday he hit me over the head with a 2x4 (in a good way). I found out that ASU will fund me completely and I will even receieve a stipend every month to pay for living expenses! It was the best day of my life... I literally felt the weight of the world leave my shoulders. The best part is, the Lord completely provided this for me. I did not receieve funding based on merit or anything that I myself, acheived... it was PROVIDED. Once again, the Lord showed up in a big way (as He always does). Of course there are always strings attached with financial aid, so I have agreed to work in early-intervention in the state of Arizona for four years after I graduate.

To further my excitement, I think we are going to rent Andrew's aunt's house in Tempe. This means we might be able to get a dog!!!!! Yesterday was one of the best days of my life :)

Pass the Pigs

Friday, April 3, 2009

My family has been playing "Pass the Pigs" since I was little. We played it last weekend during my mom's birthday, and it's still as fun as when I was in fourth grade!

It's in the details...

The way products are presented is important to me. I've always wanted to be the person that designs the packaging for great products. Unfortunately, they don't offer a degree for that at ASU haha. When I visit Anthropologie, (on the rare occasion that I actually buy something), I am just as excited about what my purchase is packaged in! These are a few of the companies whose attention to detail I admire...




Spring Headband

My mom and I visited a cute store in downtown Mesa called Domestic Bliss. They were selling these cute crochet flowers attached to safety pins. I opted to attach my flower to a stretchy handband from Target. I think it's pretty fun!
