Fantasy Boyfriend Team

Posted at Nov 21, 2014 4:19 pm in

Every year, men spend a whole helluva lot of time talking about their fantasy football teams.  Who got drafted.  Who got traded.  Who got injured.  Who got the most yards.  And on and on and on.  And it just seems to me that if you’re going to have a fantasy, you could come up with something better to fantasize about than football.  Like maybe hot guys.  Sooo . . . I’ve decided to come up with my own Fantasy Boyfriend Team, and every week, I’ll be drafting a new player.  Feel free to join in and pick your own team. (Duplications are A-okay.)  This week, for my first-round draft choice, I’m going to choose a tight-end. For those of you who have seen the wedding episode of Outlander, you’ll understand why I chose Jamie Fraser aka Sam Heughan.  I will expect him to play in his kilt, and if he does a good job of fulfilling my fantasies, he gets a fanny pat.

My Hawaiian Vacation!

Posted at Sep 22, 2014 6:11 pm in ,

Last winter, I was moaning and groaning to Hubba about our daughter being in Hawaii when we were stuck in the cold.  Well . . . my moaning and groaning paid off!  For the last two weeks, we’ve been in beautiful Maui, enjoying the sunshine, surf, and sand.  Here are some pics and a little information, just incase you ever find yourself in paradise.:o)

View of Maui from the plane.  From LAX, it took around five hours to get there.

View from our room.  We stayed at the Andaz in Wailea.  It was very new, clean, and nice.  Only hotel I've been in where the bed is facing the view.  It had a great rain shower, but no bathtub.  Which I missed.  I found out later that you can request a room with a tub.

I snorkeled around the point in the distance and saw lots of fish and three sea turtles.  It was amazing!

It was amazing!  But pay attention to the waves when you’re coming on shore.  I got slammed by a high-tide wave and ended up with a bruised tailbone and half the beach in my swimsuit.  But it was a good excuse to spend the next day at the Grand Wailea Spa.:o)

 

Twin Falls.  I actually got in and swam under the waterfall.  It was COLD!  And wear Tevas or flip-flops because the rocks on the bottom are sharp.

The flowers on the hike to the falls were amazing.  (And it's not really a hike.  It's more of a ten-minute walk on a dirt road.)

Not Naked and Very Afraid

Posted at Aug 29, 2014 1:37 am in ,

At the end of the summer, I always have regrets:  I should’ve written more.  I should’ve read more.  I should’ve exercised more.  And I really should’ve gone camping and enjoyed the great outdoors more.  I always forget that I’m pretty much a city girl who runs screaming when a fly buzzes around her head because I’m convinced it’s a bee.  I’ve been on numerous camping trips in my life–and I’m not talking luxury condos and cabins, but honest-to-goodness tent-pitching, fire-building, freeze-your-butt-off camping trips–and not one ended with me happily singing Kumbaya around a campfire.  Here are a few Katie camping incidents:  rolling down a mountain, almost catching myself on fire, falling in a creek, getting bitten by a mysterious bug and leg swelling, running into a bear, torrential rains with leaking tent, and burning the roof of my mouth with s’mores because I couldn’t wait to taste that gooey goodness.  And still, all it takes is seeing a cute little camper on Pinterest for me to start daydreaming about going camping again.  It’s a good thing Hubba knows me so well.  This year when I brought it up, he turned the television channel to Naked and Afraid.  After three episodes, I remembered why I don’t like camping.  And since I have no pictures of my camping trip fiascos.  Here are some pictures of cute little campers.  And one for Roo:o)

RWA 2014

Posted at Jul 28, 2014 7:29 pm in , ,

I spent this last week in San Antonio for the Romance Writers of America conference.  It’s a time for writers to hone their skills at workshops, network with publishers, agents, and publicists, and pretty much party down with their friends.:o)  

So as you can see, the conference was all about me and my Deep in the Heart series.:o)

As you can see, the setting was all about me and my books.:o)

 

On zee plane with the lovely Miss Jeffe Kennedy who let me chat about my new series the entire way to San Antone.

We went on a ghost tour around The Alamo and they gave us divining rods that we could ask true or false questions to.  And of course, I asked if the hot cop on the corner was a ghost and Mr. Rod said, "false."  Being a fiction writer, I was a little disappointed.  Being a woman, not so much.

Kat Latham and I could've posed in front of any building in San Antonio, but being romance writers, this one only seemed fitting.
