Whew. What a title, right?!
I made this cake for my old Roomz and another good friend from law school after they reminded me that it had been a really long time since they had eaten anything “Kate baked.” So, like, maybe I went overboard trying to impress them is what I’m trying to say…
Isn’t it weird how things happen like that, though? You spend three years seeing a person every day and sharing fridge space and borrowing eggs and telling each other to “PLEASE EAT SOME OF THOSE COOKIES SO I DON’T EAT THREE DOZEN BY MYSELF.” And then, one day, you stop doing that. And suddenly, it’s been six months since your old Roomz has eaten anything you’ve baked.
Ugh, change. Amirite?!
Where in the world does the time go? I’ve been planning this blog post since the end of December and now… it’s the end of January?
Anyway, HAPPY 2014!!! In honor of the new(ish) year, here are Kate’s 14 Things for 2014.
Drum roll please!
I started my life as a Real Adult last week.
(I don’t know who let me slip through the cracks like that… but it happened. And now I’m a Real Adult. WHAT?!)
Wanna know something rad?
Monday night, I wanted to see my best friend Hannah. So… we just
called (who are we kidding? texted) each other and made plans to see each other. She came over, brought The Weatherman, and we all hate-watched The Bachelorette over one-too-many cocktails. (JK. Never too many cocktails).

2. Last night the Weatherman (yes, I’m outing him) and I watched the Bachelorette premier(e?) with some friends. I know people watch this as a real thing, but…I just…I can’t be serious about it. The awkwardness was hurting my teeth. One guy was wearing a suit of armor. Also, that girl gets to drive a Bentley! This is not real life. Obvs, because it’s TV. I maaaaaay have to watch next week.

Oh, man. Last week, you guys.
Forgive our extended absence. It was hard to muster much of a positive attitude with all the crazy happening in the world. Joking about our complete inability to act like adults felt a bit inappropriate.
But! The week ended with a little bit of closure and with some good old fashioned heroics (of the law enforcement as well as normal people type). And now we’ve found some extra brain space to bring you some goodness!
By that I mean, this is Kate. Putting off studying for finals.
A few days ago we had the first Perfect Spring Day of the year in Austin.
The sun was out, but it wasn’t too hot. The wind was blowing, but not too hard. Just the Perfect Spring Day.
Perfect Springs Days fill me with a rush of gratitude. So here are some things I am just super thankful for lately:
