6 Reasons Why I Excelled at Life This Weekend

Sometimes you just really need a kick-A weekend.

And trust me, I did really need one come Friday at 5pm. Here are a few reasons why this weekend did not disappoint in the "forget your troubles and be a free bird" department...

1. I finally went grocery shopping. And the feast was bounteous. Also, I stopped eating dairy in addition to being gluten-free. You'll get a whole post on that soon, don't worry.

2. Glitter toes, 'nuff said.

3. The boring white lamp became a magical blue & burlap lamp. Thank you, spray paint and hot glue.

4. My nephew turned 7 on friday, so naturally I had to school him in the ways of cheap arcades. Once again, proving that Aunt Katie's still got it.

5. Went to see Jurassic Park 3D with my little sisters. I was reminded of two truths: 3D still makes me cross-eyed, and Jurassic Park still scares the jelly beans outta me.

6. I fed my soul on much goodness from the LDS General Conference. Below are a few of my favorite snippets from the weekend, a la me pretending I'm good at doodling but really I just write in cursive sometimes and call it artistic.

What magical adventures did YOUR weekend hold?

p.s. Thanks for all the sweet support about me sending my book to a publisher! You guys are the and don't you ever forget it!
