Happy Summer Teachers!!!!

3 days left until I can do this:

sleep in late.

and this
My Poolside Pedicure

and this

instead of this
The Boy's Class
and this
Tenzin Has A Tantrum

Can you sense my excitement?. I do love my profession on most days. But, I do have to vent about my year a little. I have way to many children, way to many IEP's and WAY to much paperwork. I actually feel like a secretary and not a teacher. I have never looked forward to summer so much in my entire life. I have encountered non-teacher's before who have said to me, "Why do you have so much vacation? I only get a week of vacation." I would like to remind the non-teachers out there that you can go re- apply to college and obtain your teaching certificate. I would also like to remind them that we make nothing.And get up at 5:00 am. Teachers deserve every minute of summer vacation. So, to all the teachers out there, HAPPY SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Louisville Zoo Wedding

I had a fabulous weekend! One of my best friends, a sorority sister from college got married and had the reception at the Louisville Zoo. Here are some of the adorable details:

The rehearsal dinner was at Nick's parent's house in Anchorage. So cute! Love the big pictures.
                                                      The bride to be, me and Tatum.
The wedding party boarding the train to the reception tent. Jenna's dress was champagne colored and looked gorgeous on her! The bridesmaids are wearing J Crew with an added sash. 
        Pi Phi group shot. I don't see my friends nearly enough. They put a smile on my face!
Enjoying the train ride through the zoo. This reception spot gets two thumbs up from me. It was so unique and the perfect reflection of Jenna and Nick's personality. Plus, the gorilla was adorable!

Bargain and Horse Show

                                                  Snappy Skirt- Printed

Got this for 50% off at Peppermint Palm this weekend! Love me some Lilly!!! Wanted to buy whole store. Restrained myself. Was thinking it would be cute to wear to the JL Horse Show. Have tons of tickets if anyone is interested!  If you don't like horses you can shop or people watch. Or hang out with me. Will be there every night since I am Grounds Chair this year. Ahhh! Some pics from years past...

Blog Therapy

I am not sure who exactly reads my blog. Since my blog is new I have changed the name a few times. I decided, "Katie" was just plain boring. I kind of like "Kentucky Katie" and think I will keep it. You might also be wondering why I have made 3 new posts in one weekend. Yes, I am somewhat of a nerd. But I do have an excuse this time. I have been feeling sick all weekend and decided to rest. I think it is a combination of no sleep, super stress from work and hectic social schedule. So, I am completely enjoying a little blog therapy,pj's and lifetime television. 

Happy Saturday!

Graduation and Chicago?

My younger brother graduated from Western Kentucky University last weekend. How exciting!It was so nice to be home with family. He left the next day for Chicago to look for a job. I am hoping the job hunt is successful and he finds something he likes. Plus, what a great place to visit.... I am dying to visit 1154 Lill Studio  and design my own bag! Here is an idea:  


You pick out your style (clutch, diaper bags, makeup bags...) then you choose all your fabric. 

                                  Another Windy City must is
                              Wrigley Field_Sign
Then I will have an excuse to wear these super cute madras shorts from J Crew.


Wedding at the Ranch

I love celeb weddings! And Jenna Bush! Click here and you can view a slideshow of the wedding.I love the couple's first dance song. It is playing on my blog now! Craig's sister had the same band as Jenna at her wedding. Some Presidential nuptial history:

   Jenna is the 22nd person to wed during a father's presidency
   Only 9 have actually had the wedding at the White House
   President Nixon and his daughter danced to,"Thank Heaven for Little Girls."
   George W. and Jenna danced to, "You are so Beautiful."
Some Jenna Bush history:
    Jenna is a teacher
    She is a UNICEF volunteer
    Her husband is a former aid to Carl Rove
    She was born one minute after her sister, Barbara
                                                                             Jenna Bush Wedding

Favorite Derby Outfits

GREY GOOSE Vodka, a sponsor of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, joined forces with renowned American hat designer Eric Javits to create a one-of-a-kind hat worn by Molly Sims at the 2008 Kentucky Derby.  The elegant lantern silhouette, sashed in silk chiffon all in shades of silver blue, were selected in keeping with the Grey Goose colors and brand image.  Javits' idea was to marry the cool excitement of GREY GOOSE Vodka with Audrey Hepburn's character in the film "Breakfast at Tiffany's."  Both hatbox and hat are autographed by actress Molly Sims and designer Eric Javits.
                                                   GREY GOOSE VODKA MOLLY SIMS 
                                           Actress Molly Sims attends the 134th ...
I am not a fan of Grey Goose. Actually I don't like any vodka. But, Molly Simms has my vote for the best dressed celeb at the Derby.We must have the same taste since we are both from Western KY.... You can even bid on her hat at auction. Just go to All of the proceeds go the Barnstable Brown Foundation.
