guest post - Katie

[No, I am not guest posting for myself.  I'm in Hawaii, remember?]

Today you get a very special treat - the chance to hear from my dear friend, Katie Hawkes.  Aka khawkes.  Aka Hawk Girl.  [Take your pick.]  She writes over at a delightful blog called Scruples.  I shared a room with this girl for a year [and a couple months...you know, until I decided to get married or whatever].  I don't have enough good things to say about this girl - the list is literally endless.  She is funny, smart, ambitious...

....and, well, to save time...

I just know you are going to love her.


today's post has been brought to you by the letter P and the numbers 1-10.
what? you don't get it? oh bother. i guess i should lay off the inside jokes or this blog will get nowhere.

but really, the other night ksparks ... um, kdevey? ... and i realized that if outsiders listened in on our conversations, no one would have any idea what we're talking about half the time.
that's what happens when you've shared a room for more than a year.
a lot of other things happened too.
try these stories on for size.

most recently, a little stranger appeared in our living space.
he looked pretty normal...

...until i stepped on him.

"what the..."

we now like to refer to this new friend as The Bad Esteem Scale.

reason: he's a little generous with his weight guesstimates.
like, 10 lbs generous.

something like this could be very dangerous, in the wrong hands.
i mean ... wrong feet.

in any case,
we planned to get rid of this mysterious and insulting visitor ASAP, before a guest stepped on it and inadvertently damaged their body image.
actually, my Plan A is to just wrap it up and put it with ksparks' other wedding presents. shhh.

now i'm going to help katie pack
by stealing the stuff she already owns, wrapping it in wedding gift wrap and bringing it to her reception.
because unwrapping is more fun than unpacking, right?

Ha that is hilarious! And you want to major in Psychology? I think that is awesome! I wanted to do clinical psychology for awhile, I worked at a psychiatric residential treatment center for at-risk youth too!
