Going to be gone awhile

Hey everyone. I just wanted to let everyone know that I am going to be gone most of next week. Actually, I will probably be gone ALL of next week. Why, you ask? Well, that is just going to be a little secret until I get back! Then you can see where I have been. ;) Just something for you to wonder about for the next week or so. :P

My poll about a photography blog had ended and I want to say thank you to everyone who voted in it! I will probably be starting a photography blog sometime here soon, however we will have to get my own personal computer up and running again before that can happen. :( Thanks again to everyone who voted!

This is my 95th post. What do you all think I should do for my 100th post? Have another giveaway? Have my first blog party? Have a contest? You tell me what your thoughts are about this and I will see what I can do about them! ;)

Well, since I am going to be gone awhile, I thought I would leave you with a video to watch until I return. (Of course, this will not last a whole week, I just said that for effect. :P )

Outside my window... There isn't an window in the room I'm sitting in...
I'm thinking... about silly NC state laws
I'm reading... a book! :P

I'm wearing... my Eeuore University Tshirt and some shorts

Eldarwen's Blog Party!

Yes, this is my second post today, and I am aware that I usually don't post more than once a day. However, this is a special occasion! And I am posting twice today. Just so you know. :P
Here are the questions for Eldarwen's Blog Party ( :
1) How old are you? I am 15.
2) What name do you go by on blogger? Katie G.
3) When is your birthday? December 8th
4) If you could live anywhere in the world, besides where you live now, where would it be? The mountains! I love the mountains. We used to live in the mountains, but then my Dad got a job as a band director at a school and we had to move. :(
5) How did you find out about Blogger? Well, I had been bugging my Mom to get a blog for awhile now because she had officially started her photography business. So she signed up and I eventually convinced her to let me get a blog as well.
6) Tell us something interesting about yourself: When I was about eight or nine my whole family did Operation Christmas Child. Everyone got their own shoebox and I filled mine up for a girl who was around my age. I put a picture of myself in the box as well as a letter with address in it. I told the girl that if she ever got the chance, I would love to receive a letter from her. Well, a few months later, I received a letter from Latvia! My Mom looked at it and she was so confused. "Latvia? Why on earth are you getting letters from LATVIA?" We opened it and it was from the girl that received my shoebox!!! Her name was Kitija. We wrote back and forth for a long time until we both moved and now I don't know where Kitija is or what she is doing, but I still pray for her.
7) What was your favorite toy when you were little? I had a little purple unicorn with hot pink hair that I got from a McDonald's Happy Meal. That thing wasn't any bigger than length of the palm of my hand (my hand now anyway :D ), but that unicorn was the bomb.
8) What is your favorite meal? Have you ever cooked/helped cook that meal? My favorite meal is probably fettuccine alfredo with salad, beans, and garlic bread. And yes, I have helped cook this before.
9) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? The high frizz factor that my hair seems to adore. -.-
10) Are you an outside person, or an inside person? Depends on what day you catch my. And what season it is!
11) Are you a mommy's boy/girl, or a daddy's boy/girl? I think I am probably both! haha.
12) In one word, describe the feeling you get when you stub your toe, after just being told by your parents that you are grounded for the next month: Frustration.
13) Let's say you TP'd your friend's house (for those of you who don't know what TP'd stands for, it means toilet papered. As in, put toilet paper on their trees, cars, house, porch, etc.). If someone asked you why you TP'd your friends house, you would say: Oh man... I have never TP'd anyones house so I have no idea... Probably something like '' 'Cause it was fun" or something..
14) Have you ever gone swimming in deep, dark, dirty water? yes... *shudder* I was at camp one year. Instead of having a pool, they had a roped of area in a pong. A VERY dirty pond. Like so dirty you could barely see your hand in front of your face kinda dirty. Gross.
15) Have you ever dreamed about getting ready to leave the house, and forgetting to get your pants on? Um, no. Not that I remember.
16) Have you ever done something so ridiculous, that you wish you'd never done it? If so, what? Yes, I know for a fact that I have, but right now I can't remember what that was.
17) Imagine that you saw a purse snatching. What would you do?
a. scream and run away
b. move out of the state/country
c. tackle the purse snatcher to the ground.
d. ignore it, start whistling, and turn the other direction.
I think I would try to do 'c', but I'm not sure how that would turn out. :-/
18) How many friends do you have on blogger? LOTS.
19) What makes blogging so much fun for you? Just being able to share some of what my life is like with others. Plus, I really like typing, :)
20) You're a turtle, who has bet that you can win a race with a rabbit. How does it turn out? The rabbit gets to scared, he packs all his stuff up, moves out of the country, and change his name to Jack Sparrow, after his role model. I would be declared the winner since I didn't run away (not I could have. I'm a turtle after all!) and then I go home and have a piece of garlic bread.
Well, there they are! I hope you enjoy reading those! :) Oh, and Eldarwen is having a AWESOME giveaway if you enter her Blog Party! So head on over there to check it out!

Look What I Found!

Guess what I found! I found a blog that is nothing but links to blogs that are giving away Christian books!!!! Is that not great, or what?
There is the link. I was on it last night and this morning looking through all the giveaways and entering the ones that I wanted to. Please check it out! I think you will like it! :)
This is my 91st post! Only 9 more posts before 100!!!

2) The Door Within Series by Wayne Thomas Batson. I LOVE those books. They have a lot of action in them and are Christian as well.

3) The Dragon Keeper Chronicles by Donita K. Paul. Can you imagine living with all of those dragons??? That would be pretty awesome. ;)

The three that won the giveaway should be looking for their packages in the mail! My lovely mother sent them this morning in the mail. It might take a few days for some of you who live farther away to get them. I will post pictures of the necklace and earrings in a day or two, but I completely forgot to take a picture of Lindsay's bracelet. So sorry about that. :(

Thursday, April 8, 2010

Giveaway is over!

Yep, my giveaway is over. And you all know what that means! WE GET TO SEE WHO WON! :)
I had three people to enter my giveaway. They are:
Lindsay @
Fashionablylate (who doesn't have a blog that I am aware off. So sorry if you do!)
Shaynie @

Thanks SO much for entering my giveaway guys! Anyway, I guess you will want to know who won? Yes? Okay, I will tell you! :P Haha...

I had my mother, sister, and cousin pick out the winners. The first person to be drawn out of the hat was....... FASHIONABLYLATE!!!! Congrats! Please leave me a comment with your address in it (I have comment moderation on, so no one will be able to see it) and what color you want your new necklace to be.

The second person to be drawn for the earrings is.............. LINDSAY!!!! Of course, then I realized that she had said that she didn't have her ears pierced. SO, what I am going to do is switch the earrings out for a bracelet or anklet (you can pick). Please leave me a comment with your address and if you will please measure how big your wrist is so that I don't make it to big or small. Also, I need to know what color you want it.

But guess what! I have decided that SHAYNIE will receive the earrings that I said I would giveaway! :) So, Shaynie, please comment on here with your address and what color you want then to be!

Thanks SO MUCH for entering by giveaway guys! I will post pictures of the jewelry that I make for these ladies so that everyone can see what they got! :D

Also, I have a question for all of you. I am thinking about starting a photography blog once my own computer is up and running again. What do you think? I will put a poll over there --> somewhere about this. Anyway, I wanted to say thank you to all of you who are following my blog! I HAVE 30 FOLLOWERS! That is a A BUNCH, yall... :P

Blog Parade!

Click on the link in my sidebar to link up to this great parade! The prizes are awesome as well!

1. If you had to describe yourself in one word, what would you say? I would probably say 'quiet' .

2. If you could go anywhere in the world with anyone you wanted to, where would you go and who with? I think I would go to Greece and I would take my mother, father, sister, brothers, and my best friend Ashley.

3. If you could have one superpower, what would it be? To be invisible. Can you say FUN???
4. What is one habit (or two ;) that you get teased about a lot? Well... That would be my habit of taking one of my curls and rubbing in between my thumb and first finger. I started doing it when I was little and I just never stopped.

5. What is (or are) your food obsession(s)? NOODLES! I love noodles.... and salad! I love salad too....

6. What is the best April Fools prank you pulled on someone or that someone pulled on you? Hmmm... I don't really know. I guess the best one that I have ever really played on someone would be the time that I told my Dad that he had gum on the bottom of his shoe. He looked at this shoe and says "What?! Where?" He was kinda frantic. He he....

7. If you were an inanimate object, what would you be? I think I would like to be a book if I were an inanimate object. Maybe an old one?

8. Let's say you could change the world in one way. How would you change it? In some way to help further Christ in all the world.

9. You have a million dollars (*gasp* ;). How do you spend it? I probably donate most of it to orphans and such. Then I think I would make sure that all my family's bills were paid and all and then I would make sure that I had enough to make it through college. With whatever was left (if any) I think I would buy a ton of books. Maybe start my own library...

10. What is one thing that always takes your breath away? (That could mean in a good way OR a bad way)Sunsets. They display so much of God's beauty and love for us! I love them.

11. You are granted three wishes. What do you wish for? (Remember, you can't wish for more wishes ;) Hmm... 1) For enough money to never be in debt and to be able to make sure that none of my family or friends is ever in debt 2) For people to be moved to adopt more children 3) Well, I've always wanted my own horse :P Ha ha.

12. You can spend the day with one character from a book or series that you've read. Who is that character?Just one?!?!?!?!? AHHH!!!! *faint*

13. What is something odd or interesting about you that is not commonly known? Well, I love to talk to people that I know well. Most people who see me or just kinda know me, probably think I am the most quiet girl you will ever know. And around them I probably am (I can be so shy it gets on MY nerves... ) , but around my closest friends, I love to talk and listen to them. :)

14. What is one thing that you absolutely positively cannot stand? Constant noise. I like the quiet :) .

15. Say you committed a crime. The judge gives you a choice between sentences: twenty years of complete solitude in the mountains or never having another moment alone for the rest of your life. Your choice? I would probably pick the solitude.

16. What is one benefit that blogging has given you? Meeting new people.

17. A perfect day in your eyes would be...? I would wake up and head on out to search bookstores. After lunch I would spend sometime with my friends and we would go to a water park (I love water parks :D). Then when we were done and had all eaten dinner I would come back home and watch a Bones marathon on TV, but no commercials.
Well, there are all the questions and their answers! Now all I have to do is go and link up! :D
My giveaway was supposed to have ended yesterday, but I have decided to prolong it another week to give more people a chance to sign up. So it will now end on April 7th. I don't believe I put this, but you have to comment in order to be entered. ;) Thanks!
