My friend's beautiful Pitbull. She's amazing. Even though everyone thinks the breed is horrible, just remember it's how the dog is trained. Most agressive Pits are trained that way and are used for fighting. She is not and has a loving owner.

Here are just a few pictures I snapped of her the other day. Let me know what you think.

Photos were taken and edited by me. If you'd like to use them, please contact me first! Thanks!

Couponing 101 and Update: Long Post

I'll start with an update first. Sorry I have been away from my blog. I haven't really had anything new to talk about or post so I just kind of stepped aside from blogging for awhile. Now I'm back and ready to blog full force. [At least try to anyway]. Little update on my life right now. It's crazy. I'm planning a trip to Missouri in May to see my family [Grandparents, aunts, uncles, ya know...the whole shabang!]. Well the perk of going up there when I am is that my dad will be there too. Yay! It's like killing two birds with one stone [even though I'd NEVER kill a bird or even think of doing something that crazy]. So here's my list of stuff I've been focusing my time on.

  1. Getting the hatch subframe and steering rack replaced [my bolt is broken on my subframe and I don't want to risk it coming out when I make a 10 hr drive].
  2. Getting the inspection done on the hatch before the end of the month. [Going to cost me anywhere from $40-$100].
  3. Get an alignment [$40-$100]
  4. Pay bills -_-
  5. Find someone to watch Sissy or take her with us.
  6. Trying to sell my HTC HD2 Android phone [t-mobile]
  7. Trying to sell parts I have off the other hatch.
As you can see I've been really busy. Life however, has been going pretty good besides the money issues. My good friend Rikki started work at my job on Monday and I absolutely <3 having him work with us. Not only is he a good worker but I feel awesome having a friend work with me. Before it was just ugh, didn't really want to go in and now it's awesome. I look forward to work and love hearing jokes and being able to go to lunch with someone whenever I want. It's great. 

Another good thing is that Blake and I have grown closer in the past few months. From the time we were thinking about breaking up till now; we have definitely grown closer. He's more loving and I have changed a lot too. No more depressed or sad Katie!

That's all for my update on my life. Now on to couponing!! [Let me know if you all are sick of these posts yet]
