About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

The moment you’ve all been waiting for…


These are from David’s Bridal so I guess this is a free plug for them. Now, way back after I got engaged in January, I pretty much immediately went on their site to look at dresses. I’ve got this idea in my head that I want a dress with off the shoulder straps, kind of like Belle’s dress in Beauty and the Beast. Yeah, I went there.

All I know is, I really, really really don’t want a strapless dress. I don’t. That’s too many pull ups and push ups to get my arms to look okay to stand alone. Just, no. Also, everybody’s doing it. I despise that. :P I’m a rebel.

This is a dress I found online. I love it. It’s also relatively cheap. I had a tiny sliver of hope that just by walking into David’s Bridal, I could magically find this dress and try it on. Unfortunately, they didn’t have it. Bummer.

So these are the dresses I tried on.

The real question is, what am I doing with my arms?

I loved this dress. I tried on one before that I thought was plain, so my saleswoman went and got this one. It has the longest train in their collection, which I enjoy. It’s also sparkly. Sparkle sparkle.

It was a little itchy.

This is the same dress with a jacket. I don’t know if I’m sold on the jacket, mostly because it was itchy.

Everything's yellow. Awesome.

I apologize for my camera’s lack of color sense. So this dress was supposed to be ivory because I wanted to see if I like the color on me. But after I put it on, the saleswoman was like “Whoops! That’s off-white.” Same diff? I don’t know. Anyway, since my camera doesn’t understand color, then it doesn’t make a bit of difference.

This dress is less lacy and more bustle-y and sparkly. I like the waist area on dress #1 more, but I liked this one because it’s a PRINCESS DRESS. hee.

Anyway, it was a lot of fun. I love playing dress-up. I’m going to a bridal exhibit at the Cincinnati Art Museum on Friday, then Saturday I’m actually going to a bridal show. Can my wedding be this summer?

Life of Cathryn.

Christmas was awesome. I got boots and shoes and DVDs and books and, oh, a stomach virus.

Everything was sooo happy and fluffy until I woke up two days after Christmas feeling a little wonky. I thought HGTV would help, but it didn’t. Next thing I know, I’m sick to my stomach, and I’m sitting on the floor in the bathroom lamenting the fact that I haven’t thrown up since I was 12.

That’s a really long streak to have to break. CURSE YOU, VIRUS.

Anyway, I got backups for my dog-sitting and stayed at home all day, sleeping and watching HGTV. I learned about renovating bathrooms and buying property in Canada. Why Canada? Because HGTV shows are filmed in Canada. C’est la vie.

I also learned about how Gatorade G2 fruit punch tastes like Jello and it is delicious. I normally think Gatorade tastes like rhino sweat.

I know you all are absolutely dying to see wedding dress pictures and a bunch of other stuff, but I’m just going to show this goofy Colonel Sanders cookie that I made.
