I am moving my site, so I am shutting off comments, etc. New site should be up in a few days, so wait until then to post comments.

Thanks, Katie

This morning while running on the treadmill, the strangest thing happened to me. I had my headphones on, my iPhone was sitting in the cupholder and I guess some way or another, it was conducting electricity and sending shocks through my headphones so I keep feeling little stings in my ears. I held my phone and it stopped. Hopefully I don’t go deaf from this experience.

Hey guys, I’ve started a blog about my goal to lose some weight and get back into shape. My “Christmas Wish” is to lose five pounds by December 21st, the day I go back home for Christmas break. Let me know if you have any tips or pointers!

My dad created this video for Veteran’s Day in memory of my great-grandfather Roy Swainhart who served in WWI.

I also want to share my appreciation for those who have served and fought for our freedom. I am so grateful for the soldiers who have been willing to put their lives on the line for each one of us. Thank you veterans and soldiers, you’re in my thoughts today.

I came across this commercial one day and really liked everything about it, especially the song in the background.

So I did a little googling and found out the song is called A New Day by the band Scouting for Girls. I had never heard of them, so I created a Pandora station for them.

I suggest you do the same.

I love finding new bands and I’ve really been searching for something new and different. I listened to the gang, as Kate Hudsen would say, for way too long, who for me includes Ingrid, Regina, and Adele.

So anyway, not all the bands on that station are great, but I just am loving Scouting for Girls right now and hope you do too! Enjoy!


I don’t know what it is about this winter, but I am just craving snow. Every morning I look out the window in anticipation, but unfortunately I keep getting disappointed.

It keeps flurrying but not sticking. What a tease. I am looking for some real frozen precipitation here! Is that too much to ask? I know the likelihood of school being canceled is slim to none, but it’s worth a shot of hope, am I right?

So, here I am. Looking out the atrium windows at work (I’m covering for the secretaries) and I am just searching for a snowflake falling in the air. Come on snow… come… on… snow!
