It’s the End of the Year as we Know it!

Goodbye 2013 and Hello 2014.

I’m currently thinking about New Year’s Resolutions… I can’t wait to share them with you all!

Until then, I’ve decided to get on the band wagon and provide you with my Top 5 Blogs from the past year!  Whoo Hooo!  Lucky you!

Now, I do have a disclaimer.  I eliminated my very top blog as it has 2,000 more hits than the next one down… obviously not a fan favorite, just a search engine favorite!

A Supernatural Obsession

Nerd fandom

I think that this post is a hit because of the search terms; however, I’m super happy to include it because I like to share the love of the Winchester brothers.  You’re welcome.

Lessons from the Movies: The Bucket List

The Bucket List

The Bucket List

I did love this post.  Looking back, the formatting is off and I can tell that I have modified the way I blog just a bit; however, I’m really pleased that this one made the list!  I love my bucket list!

The Baby Shower Didn’t Suck

Really? You want to display and then eat a cake that is a baby's butt?  Am I the only one that has issues with this??

Really, you want to display a cake that looks like a baby butt and then expect me to eat it.  Not happening.  And if you give me a part of the cake that looks like a human leg I will personally cut off your toes and see how YOU like it!  Okay, sorry, but baby showers can be freaky things and even just posting this brings up an irrational response apparently…

Then He Kissed the Back of my Hand


Now, this post still brings a tear to my eye.  In fact, I almost didn’t re-read this post, but I couldn’t help it.  Thanks to all of my fellow bloggers who followed me through this journey, you guys were there through the medical jargon, the laughter and the tears.  This is still my favorite post of all time.  And probably always will be.

What Does Being Brave Mean?


There are days that just making it through the day makes me feel brave.  I know that everyone has a different definition of “bravery”, and some of the items that I have trouble with you might be able to breeze right through; but the fact that I do them despite the fact that my heart is pounding out of my chest – well, I’ll take that as a win!

Thank you to those who have read my blogs, and many thanks to those of you that take the time to leave a comment.  I’ve really enjoyed meeting and interacting with all of you this past year – you’ve all brought laughter and light into my life.

  1. Oh “Then He Kissed the Back of my Hand” is the post that got me reading your blog, Kate. It still makes me teary just remembering that beautiful tribute to your brother. Keep up the good work over here, girl. 🙂

    I’m going to work on an award to give you very soon for leadership from todaysmanager. ; )

    Great year. You are very successful and entertaining.

  3. My favourite is the baby shower and the post on your brother. I must say I read this for the first time on Lee, even though I knew you had a brother but I just somehow missed it. It’s so touching and brought tears to my eyes too. You are such an awesome sister. I wish you all the best for 2014 and seriously I love your tattoo, I must say that again 🙂

    • Thank you Christy! I liked that my top reader favorite blogs were also the top blogs that I liked! Lee was such a blessing to us the short amount of time we had him, and yes, the more I see my tattoo and get used to it, the more I love it!
      Thank you so very much! Happy New Year!

  4. This was such an absolutely awesome idea! I don’t think I was following your blog when you posted the one “Then He Kissed the Back of My Hand”. Brought me to tears. You have such a special, strong spirit.
