Published August 29, 2014 by Kattie Sivley

So I found this thing on my iPad called iMovie, and it lets you make these movies or trailers from all the pictures and video clips that you have saved. Here is the video I made.

Book Nook Love

Published August 24, 2014 by Kattie Sivley

No, not the Barnes and Noble e-reader. Actual nooks where people can sit and read.  Recently I did a post on book shelf love, and now is a time for book nook love.

I usually just sit around in my chair or on my bed, but, wow are these nooks amazing.  I found these on Google and Pinterest Read the rest of this entry →

Bookshelf Love <3

Published August 20, 2014 by Kattie Sivley

I love me some bookshelf pictures. Have you seen Bookshelf Porn??? It is epic.

First of all I will show you my bookshelves which are arranged alphabetically by author. This is the only way I know how to find the books on the shelves or else it would be endless searching for, and probably forgetting books that I own.  This year I have tried to read all of my books in alphabetical order, because at the beginning of the year I could not decide what I wanted to read. I’m on the letter C now, and it is August.  I feel like I read a lot, but perhaps not, also I have a ton of books, and I make bi-weekly trips to Half Price Books with the intention of selling, and not buying, but always walk out with an arm load.

I made a thing….Mint Chocolate Cookies

Published August 15, 2014 by Kattie Sivley

I made a thing


For today’s installment of I made a thing….I made Duff Goldman Mint Chocolate Cookies!  I found this cookie mix at Target, and decided I had to make these for Wade! He loves mint + chocolate.

I didn’t think about doing a blog post on it, until after I put the cookies in the oven, so you won’t get any pictures of me actually making the cookies, but just so you know, there was cookie batter everywhere. (I’m messy, much to my husband’s dismay.)

I also didn’t think to take a picture of the box, and apparently they don’t have a picture of what I bought on the internet, so here is the closest thing I could find to what I made.

There are many times when you are expected to be happy for someone: when they get married, when they get pregnant, just in general when they are happy. But what if your happiness for them is hampered by crippling jealousy?  It is hard to be super excited for your friends and family, when they are getting something you have wanted more than anything, and you can’t have it.

O Captain! My Captain! Rest in Peace

July 1951 – August 2014

Robin Williams will always be my favorite nanny, teacher, genie, doctor, and the best board game player that ever lived.  He was the best scientist, and science experiment.  He was the boy who never grew up, and the boy who grew up too fast.  He will be missed by all.

O Captain! My Captain! Rest in peace.


“Please, don’t worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this Earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day, make a wish, and think of me. Make your life spectacular.”

Robin Williams (Jack)
