The BEST Instagram accounts (according to me)


Like everyone else in 2015 I'm obsessed with Instagram. I love seeing my friends & family on there, don't get me wrong, but I love me some funny accounts. And accounts with hot dudes (like my husbands, hhhheeeeyyyyyy). One of my favorite, favorite accounts is Crazy Jewish Mom. It's all text messages from a mother to a daughter. CJM is not a fan of her spawn not having a ring on her finger, mason jars or Brooklyn. But she loves kegels, twerking, male strippers, catfishing on JDate & Scandal. A woman after my own heart! Ultimate Sir Mix-A-Lot fan. #crazyjewishmom Want your mom's crazy texts featured on the new account: @CRAZYYOURMOM? Submit via my website! Link in bio! And check out my personal account @KATEESIEGEL and our dog @ASSHOLETHOR too! A photo posted by Crazy Jewish Mom (@crazyjewishmom) on May 9, 2015 at 10:50am PDT How many of y'all are guilty of saying "OMG I'M LITERALLY DEAD!!!", because this chick is. Meet Skellie, she goes all over town, dates, work, deals with brunch hangovers just like us. EXCEPT WE AREN'T DEAD! #IDie Chillin' poolside, catching some rays, and drinking some suds. This is the life! #skelfie #poolside #Florida #sprangbreak #turnt A photo posted by Skellie 💁 (@omgliterallydead) on Apr 4, 2015 at 12:28pm PDT I'm boy crazy, always have been, always will be. This is something my husband knew the first time he met me, & when he married me. Like I knew he has a soft spot in his heart for grudgey chick bass players (I can play bass too ha!). ANYHOO. Here are some of the best eye candy accounts. Did you know there is a guy drinking coffee in this picture? Photo by @samhandler32 Like this photo? There's many more on his feed! Check it out @samhandler32 #menandcoffee A photo posted by M E N & C O F F E E (@menandcoffee) on May 3, 2015 at 6:19pm PDT There is nothing hotter than guys who like to read. Have mercy! I would donate a vital organ if these two California dream boats asked. Thankfully, they're only asking you to make a small donation to @FirstBookOrg. If we raise enough money who knows what piece of clothing will come off next. #iknowmyvote #hotdudesreadingforacause DONATE NOW (CLICKABLE LINK IN BIO) A photo posted by Hot Dudes Reading - Official (@hotdudesreading) on Mar 3, 2015 at 4:21pm PST HOT GUYS WITH DOGS.

The Importance of Being Alice


I have been touting how much I love me some Katie Mac (what I call her, duh) on here since I started this blog way back when. Not only is she an amazing author, she's super nice as well! Not that I have met her, but she's in the fan facebook group & comments on everyones stuff, so that right there shows me she's nice. Moving on now to The Importance of Being Alice - Nothing about Alice Wood’s life is normal right now. Her fiancé, Patrick, called off their wedding and relationship only days before their nonrefundable wedding trip. And though a luxurious European river cruise for one is just what she needs, it’s not what she gets... Due to a horrible misunderstanding, Alice is now cramped in her “romantic” suite with one of Patrick’s friends. Instead of cruising along the Rhine, Main, and Danube rivers sipping champagne with the love of her life, she’s navigating the waters with a strange—yet mysteriously handsome—British aristocrat. An author, Elliot is just looking for some alone time to write. But his stodgy, serious self is about to be sidetracked by a woman who seems to have jumped out of the pages of a fairy tale, one who is determined to shake up his life...and include him in her own happily ever after. {image & synopsis via Goodreads) I love a good surly leading man & a funny leading lady, & that's what you get here folks. I mean, I love my husband & all, but getting stuck in a cruise cabin with a hot author may or may not be on my bucket list (okay, it's not, because that would be wrong, but if I were single, it would be). This is a fast paced book that will have you laughing out loud, cringing at times & doing lots "awwws!" with a big smile on your face. I'm big on not posting spoilers in my reviews, but let's just say that at the end of the book you go on a total adrenaline rush a long with Alice. The best part? You can just tell that it's going to be a part of a series! When I find a good series (like this is) I hold on to it for life. So, I'm anxious to add another series to my library. Now, if you had held back from a Katie Mac book because you weren't into the supernatural, then you're in luck! No Dragons or Dark Ones in this book. It's all normal humans doing normal human things. Be sure to check it out, then come back & lets talk about it! ...

The Little Things

Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 11.42.11 PM

Today I'm linking up with one of my favorite Houston ladies, Sarah. It's been a while, honestly I think a few years since I have done a link up. But I really liked the theme of this- the little things. It's something I need to stop & appreciate more. Over the weekend we lost our sweet Bouvier, Maddie. Still not ready to talk about it, when I am I will. But for now, the little things is something I want to focus on. A video posted by Katie (@thenerdykatie) on Apr 20, 2015 at 1:51pm PDT First off, this guy & his amazing belly rolls. I mean c'mon! The the thunder storms we have been having. I know, they have been crazy. I don't remember the last time I have seen weather like this in Houston. But once all that cleared, we got a nice little cool front. It's reminding me that soon summer will be here, so enjoy it & soak it up now. Also, rereading books. I get some flack for this one. People don't understand the concept of reading a book for the second time (or in my case fifth or sixth). But you will watch the same movie over  & over right? Me, I like to read the my favorites again & again. When your reading a book you're taken to another world. Sometimes I like to go back & visit those worlds. Coffee- Oh how I love thee. There ain't nothing like that first sip of coffee in the morning. I take my coffee cold, I'm not a fan of hot in general, don't even like my food hot (with heat, love some spice!). There is just something about that first shot of cold coffee in the morning that puts a big smile on my face. A photo posted by Katie (@thenerdykatie) on Nov 9, 2014 at 7:40am PST There are tons of other little things. It's actually something I think to myself daily. Remembering to cherish each moment with my son, the cuddles & him wanting to climb all over me. Yeah, my back might be killing me, but he's going to be twenty & won't want to sit in my lap some day & that will kill me more. I could go on & on & on, but I'm going to leave it at that. What are some of the little things for you? ...

Spring Cleaning can bite me.


Have y'all ever had those moments? When you're elbow deep in winter clothes from 1998, & you just think, "Spring Cleaning can bite me". Yea. That has been my last two weeks.   I don't even know why I have tried, I honestly don't. I will get allllll the crap that I have to either donate, or put in one of those vacuum bags out. I will put it in crazy piles, & then get distracted by Netflix (which is kinda my life).  Seriously though. I will literally work my ass off, like the hardest work of my life for a full five minuets, then something good happens on Vampire Diaries (I'm rewatching now) & next thing you know I'm belly down on my bed watching angsty teen vamps & surfing Instagram like some really cool beached whale. Next thing I know the timer to get my kid from the bus stop is going off, my house looks like crap & I have no idea what my family is eating for dinner. But God-bless my kid, he will work his little tail off & get good marks at school so he can choose dinner. Kiddo chooses pizza all the time, I love him. So that buys me a little more time until the hubby comes home. Then I make it a game to sucker the kid into helping. But the kid is smart, & he's on to me. He will straight up tell me that it's my chores (okay, not in that sassy I don't mind way, but in the legit, that's my make up way) & wonder off to play Minecraft & read to the dog. Please tell me I'm not the only one who just absolutely sucks at Spring cleaning?     ...
