Road to 100


Current Task–HP Style

Sooo, if you haven’t figured it out already, my friends and I REALLY enjoy Harry Potter.  Hopefully they will come visit me and we can see the premiere together—hopefully in IMAX 3D (Emily, Becky, Ashley, Nicole, etc. this means you!).  Now what we need to do is figure out our outfits for the premiere.  We went all out for the Twilight premiere (stayed up until 4 am the night before making shirts!).

DSCI0005Twilight 08 on the backDSCI0014They all had different quotes and an apple on the front

So we have to do this with Harry Potter this July as well correct? YOU BET! We’re thinking that we will all make Harry Potter bands…

DSCI0025Like this one except with the name of the character we are portraying on it and a lightning bolt or two of course.

The shirts will most likely have quotes on them again.  I think I will be Ginny Weasley, Emily wanted to be Luna Lovegood and Becky might be Bellatrix Lestrange (Ashley and Nicole who would you like to be?  Hermione, Fleur, Tonks… or a boy? haha).  My mother is coming with us but refuses to dress up and will probably mock us endlessly.  Now comes the hard part—which quotes will we use?  This is what took forever when making the Twilight shirts.. this is why I am starting now (and because of boredom).

Example Ginny quotes:

“I never really gave up on you. Not really. I always hoped …”
Ginny Weasley

“I’m not wearing that! It’s ghastly!”
Ginny Weasley

“Anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.”
Ginny Weasley

Example Luna Quotes:

“Don’t worry. You’re just as sane as I am.”

-Luna Lovegood

“I enjoyed the meetings, too. It was like having friends.”

-Luna Lovegood

“Is that why you dyed your eyebrow, for the party? Should I do mine, too?”

-Luna Lovegood

“Oooh, look, a Blibbering Humdinger!”

-Luna Lovegood

“Wrackspurt got ya?”

-Luna Lovegood

Example Bellatrix Quotes:

“Oh, he knows how to play, little bitty baby Potter”

-Bellatrix Lestrange

“YOU FILTHY HALF BLOOD!”

-bellatrix lestrange

“I killed Sirius Black!”

-Bellatrix Lestrange

And here is a Fleur one I came across:

“I am good-looking enough for both of us, I theenk!”

-Fleur Delacour

I am really excited to make all of this stuff (and see my lovely friends) ❤  We will probably have a shirt/headband making party while playing Wii!!!!

Any suggestions on more quotes/costume ideas?  I would loveeee to hear them! Let me know in the comments!

PS.  I think some games of “Harry Potter MASH” are needed for the premiere—if you don’t know what that is, I’ll fill you in on a future blog 🙂 Maybe we will even have a virtual game as well!

Until then,

xoxo Tau, Twi, HP Love…



Thoughts on Tonight…

Hello everyone!!  Here are my thoughts on the MTV Movie Awards…

  • Megan Fox did not look like her usual pretty self?
  • Rob Pattinson looked gorg. as always!
  • Congrats to Rob and Cam for the best fight (2 years in a row for Cam woo woo!)
  • Rob- Breakthrough Male!
  • Andy Samberg is hilarious!  Best MTV Movie Awards in a REALLYYYY long time
  • Eminem did his thing.. I’ve really missed him.
  • Kristen and Rob Best Kiss—was there any doubt?  I thought their somewhat mocking of the award was very good!
  • Kristen Best Female Performance—people give her a break.  No she is not on drugs, no she is not mental.  She is a 19 year old girl who gets nervous!  I loved her comment after dropping the popcorn saying “I was just as awkward as everyone thought I would be!”
  • I wish Paramore would have won Best Song in a Movie.
  • Best Movie–Twilight—Love!
  • NEW MOON TRAILER=EPIC!  The movie is going to be major win.
  • Harry Potter clip was a little disappointing–I still loved it—I was just expecting more I think?
  • Transformers clip was good!

Sorry this post is EXTREMELY jumbled!  I am still recovering from my Twitter/cell phone/Facebook blowing up during the awards.  All in all, I thought it was a very good show.  Andy did a great job hosting (loved the singing of his songs classic style).  I DVR’d it and I will for sure be checking out my favorite moments again (and again, and again…).


Inexcusable, Unexplainable Fears

Alright, I have decided to share with you all my inexcusable, unexplainable fears!

  • DEER- Seriously, who is afraid of deer?  This girl right here.  I think it all goes back to one evening when my best friend and I were on a playground and a deer came out of the woods.  We ran up to the top of the slide (we were what…10 or so?) and the deer stayed at the bottom of the slide for what seemed like for-ev-errrr.  Ever since then I feel like deer are stalking me.  Another instance involving the same friend (maybe it is just her? Just kidding, Brit) happened while riding a quad.  The deer literally stopped us and stared us down.
  • CLOWNS- This one is pretty self explanatory.  Who/what is lurking behind all of that makeup?  Why do they always have a creeptastic smile?  Why do some have tear drops but still have a smile?  Too many unanswered questions for me.
  • PHONE CALLS- This one is a horrible fear that I REALLY need to get over.  I don’t think even a pizza shop has heard my voice over the phone.  The phone call itself usually isn’t that bad, it is the anticipation for the phone call that scares me half to death.  What will I say?  How do I fill awkward silences?  What if I can’t hear/understand them?  It is not okay.
  • ANTS- Um ants are about a centimeter big.  Why do I jump and scuttle away every time I encounter one?  Just the thought of an ant crawling on me irks me to no end.  Something about these minuscule creatures has me crawling in my skin.  I don’t even like discussing them right now.  Moving on…
  • FAILURE- I think this is a fairly common one.  I am so afraid of never accomplishing anything.  I do not like not succeeding in things and it really, truly does get to me.  I am trying to now live in a world where I am confident about the things I do.  I need to go for what I want and NOT be afraid to fail.  Hey, if you can’t fail at something while in your 20s and you have no one to support but yourself… you never can.

Well, this is all for today.  I hope you got some laughs out of my inane fears.  What are some of your biggest fears?  Let me know in the comments section.  My task for you today–tackle one of your fears!


In Case You Didn’t Check Out My Welcome…

This is what I said over in the welcome section… I figured I would post it here as well in case some of you did not see that area!

I am basically going to be blogging about anything and everything that comes to mind!  Trust it will be random!  You will find everything from movie and book reviews to my thoughts about trying to get into a graduate school here!  (I will also probably be sharing some of my photography here!)  Enjoy and I hope to hear from some of you!  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!  Comments are always welcome and appreciated.  🙂

Tau, Twi and regular love…


Cannot Wait for Sunday

So guys, I really cannot wait for the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday.  Why you may ask?  A few simple reasons I would answer:

  1. Twilight is nominated for about a kajilion awards.
  2. They are playing the New Moon trailer and it will be introduced by Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
  3. They are showing an exclusive clip from Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.
  4. They are also showing a clip from Transformers.

PS. Myspace will also be airing the trailer for New Moon.

PPS.  Have you seen those a-mazing pictures from the “reuniting” scene in New Moon?

I am also extremely excited to submit my first assignment to College Lifestyles.  *We will be having a sneak peek of the brand new, spectacular website on June 1st.  The full thing will be available on June 18th.  Keep your eyes open—you are NOT going to want to miss this! http://collegelifestyles.org  (in case you didn’t know).  Also, if you have any ideas for things you would like me to write about on College Lifestyles, I would be extremely pleased to hear them!

That is all for now.. Tau Love, Twi-love, and just plain old love from me… Kaitlyn

Summer Movies

Well first off, I would like to say welcome to my blog!  I am just getting the hang of this, so we shall see how it goes!  I thought I would start off with something simple asking which summer movie you are most looking forward to.   Answer away and I will let you know my thoughts after the poll as to not influence any of you.  (I know, I know… like I could influence you!)

Personally, I am mega excited for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince— the push back from November killed me and this seriously looks like the best HP movie yet.  After that, I would have to say Transformers for the win.  I love a little bit of Shia!  Are there any movies that I left off the list that you wish I would have included?  Let me know in the comments section!
