so today is scatter brained saturday for me.
WOW, i haven't posted in ages it feels like.
things were entirely too ho-hum for a while there, but i seem to have been catapulted into good times and friendships as of late.
my birthday is in TWO WEEKS. wow, i'm going to be 23 with the mentality of a teenager. frightening.
i hope you've figured out what you're going to get me because i have no clue. JUST KIDDING. i don't need much of anything.
anyway, let's go back a little bit in time...
Georgia vs. Florida Game
spur of the moment decision to actually go to the game and i'm glad we did.
here is me in the closest i could get to supporting GA. HOW BOUT THEM DOGS?
my nose is red from the cold, thankyouverymuch.
we started the morning early along with an r. kelly marathon coming from the camp right next to us. let me tell you, KICK OUT THE JAMS WITH SOME R KELLY!!! haha
there was food and beer pong alll day long until nap time around 3pm.
i woke up once the game was over (like i cared?) and was ready to party some more.
it was a really fun day, i got to hang out with brandi and her awesome friends from work. oh, and dance it up at the "OFF DA CHAIN" tent.
i was pretty tired the whole week after that but had to get ready for our guests from orlando, Cethkyn, who were playing a show at Yong's Country Club just down the street from us.
travis & nina are the cutest
nina & i? more like zany.
then cethkyn started to play and that's when everything broke loose.
maaan, i had so much fun!!! kind of makes me wish we lived in Orlando. kind of a lot really.
but i finally got to sleep in today after being a zombie at work this week. woohoo!
so now i'm just trying to figure out christmas presents. i preordered travis' birthday gift. shhh. don't tell.
i'm looking forward to my knoxville trip for thanksgiving and seeing how much teagan has grown and well of course, chowing down on some good food. even though i won't be able to visit for christmas, i am kind of looking forward to testing out how good of a christmas dinner i can make for us. PLUS! the moon river christmas party. so, these next few weeks are going to be hectic and wonderful all at the same time and i am so excited!

I'm in Tennessee at the moment visiting Sweet T.
I flew up here all by myself on the tiniest plane i have ever seen/been on. I felt like puking or grabbing onto the person next to me, but i got through it without doing either. I am not looking forward to the plane ride home though.
I guess being up here motivates me to actually USE my blog, poor neglected thing.
I've been trying to make mo & geri's look all nice and decided to take a break before i got too angry at it.
I don't know if I am biased just because Teagan is my baby niece, but I think she is one of the smartest babies I have met already. She keeps trying to roll over and is starting to use her voice and uses her arms to keep her boppy staying in her mouth. She doesn't just sit there which makes it so much nicer to admire her.
I totally need my own laptop. STAT.

a picture of madison and i on the way home from the beach.
the water was infested with jellyfish. thank goodness i didn't get stung.
we got vip status with an umbrella and chairs to lay out on.
it was HOT and i could feel the burn as soon as we got there.
i got to hang out with a few new people who were all pretty nice and fun.
i think i'm really starting to feel the burn in this picture! haha
soo say hello to my "new life."
i started training for my new job and monday and signed up for my benefits today.
it felt so adult and strange to me, especially when they started discussing life insurance.
i am super excited for my new job. it means more pay, PLUS i will get incentive bonuses. it also means i will have to take on more responsibility which i think i definitely need in my life.
tomorrow i'll go in and probably start off doing the same thing i have been for the last few months before i start learning the tricks of the trade. OH WELL. still excited to learn something new and getting that pretty little paycheck at the end of the month!
but as i'm writing about responsibility i am trying to avoid the ones i have around the house by writing this post. ha!

rambo and charlotte playing
he was happy to find someone as wild and crazy as he is.
callie just wasn't having it.
where rambo stayed for the weekend because he was too rowdy.
"i'm locked out, they won't let me innn, they won't let me innn"
mo got first dibs on the "made with love" cupcakes i made for the baby shower.
mo and i in the baby's aweeesome room.
i'm displaying the painting i did for the baaby.
group shot on the back porch.
awww. how cute.
the baby shower was a success and it was good to see all of my family.
I'LL BE SEEING YOU GUYS SOON!
once lil baby _______ arrives!!!
in other news, i start my new job on August 4th!
i'm excited for the bigger paychecks and the feeling of permanency.
i've been trying really, really hard to be more responsible as of late and i can see some positive changes.
the next few months to come are going to be life altering, in a good way, i can feel it.
because i am so NICE i decided not to post any pictures without travis' permission.

as you requested, mo.
rambo has started trying to bite mario when he jumps in the air.
he's always by my side while i play intently staring at the game.
i didn't even try to pose brain dead with mouth hanging open.
who is from berea, ohio?
i feel incredibly sleepy and lazy this week.
and i rock the dirty hippie look quite well, thanks.

last minute 4th of july decisions were made.
we went to south carolina and bought fireworks. me, i got the giant sparklers. that's about all i'd mess with.
we went to tim's for a going away/bonfire/4th of july party.
i guess it was my mission to try and be a social butterfly.
the ladies of the party that decided to be social as well and not outcasts like SOME people. hahaha
travis & tim
no fingers, hands, toes, were lost.
so overall it was a pretty good night.
the next day i was feeling a bit rough and watched a harry potter marathon for a great majority of the day. weee.
today after investigating WHY my bug bites burnt so bad...travis figured out that my legs are.....INFESTED WITH CHIGGERS.
clear nail polish has been applied to the affected areas and the burning sensation has subsided.
thanks georgia, for all of the gross bugs that inhabit your lovely state.

one sunday afternoon at tybee.
we should do this more often!
like my tan lines? it looks like i'm sporting some bright white shorts.
i should have made an adventure list (like i used to do) for this summer, but i didn't.
we still have to go camping a few times before summer is up.
time is really flying by quickly.
travis and zack at the pool.
we went swimming right before the storm came.
also on the summer to do list: SHARK FISHING!!!
this is from our roll of film from last summer and our shark fishing escapades.
once i bought the camera, travis didn't catch any shark. isn't that just my luck?
if you're interested, here is a picture of our new entertainment center we just got. for glass paned doors on either side, little area towards the top to hide all of the electronic devices, and then four little drawers in the middle. i'm likin' it.
next on the HOUSE to do list: paint the dang walls! yeesh.
rambo was spazzing out just now when i was taking the picture but he took a breather to pose all cute for you.

my brain is so scattered!!!
i lack focus as of late.
i'm incredibly indecisive.
i think i'm just really stuck inside of my own head.
i'm thinking way too much and not getting it out because none of it fits together or would make sense when written down.
that's my brain and my dilemma.

i forgot my username or so i thought, but i really forgot which password i used..so i called the help line to ask what it is.
phone lady: ok, i updated your info and a new password will be sent to your e-mail k-t-nose......bleed??? hahahaha @ gmail.com
me: ok thanks.
phone lady: hahahaha i guess you must go to a lot of nosebleed concerts. hahaha
phone lady: oh you made my day. thanks. bye.
maybe i should switch my e-mail to a more grown up one, but those always just get filled with spam anyway.
i am halfway to 23 today.
which brought up "HEY LIFE WHAT TO DO WITH YOU?"

cethkyn rockin out
travis and nina after their performance
nina had a LOVELY accent and was so much fun to talk to while the boys did their thing.
hopefully the two of them will be visiting savannah sometime soon!
i sure hope so.
probably the worst tattoo i have ever seen: an ode to dale earndhart surrounded by tribal on the lower back of a middle aged man
the best part about huge concerts is always the huge variety of people to watch.
i probably could have done without seeing a majority of the kid rock fans though.
some images were just burned into my brain that i'd rather not remember.
karri was probably one of the worst drivers i have ever met (but nonetheless still a fun girl.)
eeek! this is nina and i on the way back from the show trying not to pay attention to the roads for fear of screaming.
i wasn't kidding.
my feet were filthy! by the end of the day.
everyone kept calling me "dirty, dirty girl."
oh, and there is my mangled looking toe.
it's feeling fine today.
travis' friends and their friends were all pretty cool people to hang out with. oh, definitely hilarious AND crazy. i'm hoping we get to visit again sometime this summer.
what a great kick off to the summer!!!
here are some more pictures. if you can't tell, i stopped taking them soon into the afternoon. but it's PROGRESS!!!

so. the colors are a little squewed but i really am TAN!!!
(rambo just got done giving me a cute puppy kiss to the face while i was trying to take a picture of myself)
yesterday we went to tybee beach with zack and brandi.
it was a beautiful day!!! the sun was out and shining bright too.
maybe a little TOO bright considering i spent most of last night calling travis "tomatohead." soon after i realized i had gotten burnt in places that aren't the most comfortable for sitting down.
i brought my camera for the festivities prepared to snap MANY shots, but guess what? i forgot my image card. if it's not one thing, it's another with me and why i can't seem to take pictures of fun times. (i also lost the cord to upload the pictures i did get to take directly from the camera)
pesky katie story: travis was making fun of me by being freaked out by low flying seagulls..so i got my revenge. i threw a cheeto next to somewhat-snoozing travis and not even 3 seconds (not even enough to prepare myself for a bird sighting) later a bird is trying to scoop it up. travis bats it away and i scream and get out of my chair cause it starts coming towards ME. travis leans over and eats the cheeto laughing. i guess my peskyness backfired on me.

tuesday night we went to the sand gnats game.
there were hardly 50 people there, but we still had a blast.
brandy is the only one of us who has a group shot picture on her camera so i can't post it yet. we posed with "SAMMY!!! the sand gnat."
here are some pictures of rambo with his awesome preppy collar:
the toy claimed it was "3x stronger" than most toys!
....rambo killed it in two days. got it dirty within an hour.
hehe crazy puppy
i need a tan and 10lbs less for summer.
oh, and a lot more clothes. i'm not content with picking clothes from my closet anymore.
i have those "i need a change" feelings as of late. maybe dying my hair will help subside them.
or i could do some of the things i found on LEARNING TO LOVE YOU MORE.COM

picture post time!
i don't think i ever showed the pictures of my mirror/curtain/purple wall combo. oh and of course, julius is MY FRIEND.
story behind the one ring not on the rod, well...we broke one of the stoppers, shoved something between the wall and rod before we realized OOPS!!! katie forgot the last one. we haven't wanted to mess with it since in case we couldn't get it back up again. hahaha
brandi and me at steamers.
too bad the list of "shooters" behind us wasn't fully captured..there were some interesting names on there.
i came home that afternoon to find travis missing his mustache.
the reason? still unknown but zach (the georgia boy in the picture) now refers to it as his baby lip.
i think they both win an award for the squintiest of eyes at the table!!! haha
i'm so glad we have friends like them in our life now.
here is a picture of the park downtown where everyone takes their dogs for a walk and girls run while talking on their cellphones.
isn't it beautiful? in the gate is "THE SCENTED GARDEN" we laughed at the name while approaching it, but then all of a sudden we could smell all of the flowers.
so i guess that's it!!!
