Anyone who knows me, knows that I am hopeless coffee addict. Seriously, I love it. I need it. Coffee owns me. I tend to drink it at inappropriate times such as late at night, which leads to insomnia, which leads to crankiness – not good. To substitute and distract myself from coffee in the evenings, I’ve recently taken to drinking to caffeine-free tea. I particularly fond of Bengal Spice tea in the Celestial Seasonings brand. It’s a perfect blend of cinnamon and clover-ish goodness. I take it wit a spot oh milk – yes, I said that in my best British accent. I just love British accents. HAHA Any who, so yea tea rocks. End of story. I mean it’s not coffee or anything, but it gets me through the evenings. 😉

Is anyone on GoodReads.com? I am obsessed. For those of you that have yet to discover it, Good Reads is a website where you can rate and review books you’re reading or have read. You can also add books to a virtual “want to read” list. I love being able to read other book enthusiast’s reviews and on books I’m considering to read. I like being able to save books I want to read in the future. Another great feature of Good Reads is being able to “follow” your favorite authors. I love following my favorite author’s blog posts and see what they’re reading and reviewing. Best part about GoodReads? It’s completely free. Seriously, GoodReads is great, you should check it out. If you’re a member or you decide to check it out, find me HERE.

Well, I guess that’s it for now. Have a lovely rest of the week. Go drink some tea! Join GoodReads.com!



Well, this is awkward. Nothing like not posting for almost four months. WOW. Don’t I have a bit to catch up on? Let’s see –

  • The husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary on October 5th – YAY! We spent a great and unexpected weekend in Orlando at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure (HARRY POTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!). We drove down Friday morning, visited IKEA for the first time – AMAZING! Overwhelmingly large, but amazing. I found my next project table / desk. Looking forward to visiting again. Did the city walk at Universal Friday night, had a great dinner at Jimmy Buffets Restaurant and then drove to actual downtown Orlando for a drink and to sight see. Saturday morning dawned bright and comfortable. We visited Universal Studios first. It was great – TRANSFORMERS is a MUST! Poor hubs got motion sick on The Simpsons ride and had to take it easy for the rest of the day. We saved the best for last – The moment I had been waiting for –The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Islands of Adventure was a great! My wonderful and patient husband,  lovingly walked from attraction to attraction with me, even thought he felt terrible. I’m a blessed girl to have him. I can’t say enough about The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Lunch at the Three Broomsticks was so cool – the details are amazing! Butter beer (both variations) is SO DELICIOUS! I have to say, I believe I enjoyed the frozen variation best. Oh and for anyone heading there – The Every Flavour Beans really are EVERY flavour beans. I had the misfortune of biting into a vomit flavored one. Eww! It was a great weekend full of wonderful memories. More than anything it was great to get away for a couple of days with the love of my life.
  • I started working full time with my husband – He and two friends own a pet cremation business. Yes, really. More on what we do to come. It has been exciting, challenging, trying (haha), but mostly rewarding working with him. It has its moments when it gets me, due to the highly emotional nature of what we do, but it is nice to know that we are able to bring peace and closure to families that are or have recently having to say goodbye to their furry loved ones.
  • FALL is here (even in Florida) and I couldn’t be happier. October is my most favorite month, followed closely by November. Pumpkins everywhere! Cooler weather – YES, YES, YES! Boots, tights, flannel – YES, YES, YES! Fall is so fun!
  • All of the furry babies are doing well – Sushi is currently purring in my lap as I type this post.
  • There is much going on behind the scenes here at KellyElizabeth.org and I can’t wait to talk about it all. I have so many ideas that I am looking forward to putting into place very soon. I know, you’re probably thinking, “riiiight,” but I promise!

This is me signing off for the night.  Have a great week!

It is our choices that show who we truly are, far more than our abilities.

Well, I may as well admit here and now. I, Kelly, author and creator of KellyElizabeth.org am addicted to all things Harry Potter. You can look forward to countless quotes, references and extreme displays of nerdism in the future. Now that that’s out of the way… I happen to agree with the above statement wholeheartedly. It is our choices that dictate and decided the life we lead. Yes, we are all dealt a different hand of cards in the beginning, but it is ultimately up to us to determine the path we take. Bad choices, bad life. Good choices, good life. Certainly despite making a habit of choosing wisely, bad things will happen and that’s okay. Life is full of bad things, but bad things in the end are what make us grow. The bad things force us to deal with change, shaping and rearranging us into the person God intended us to be.

The world would be a better place if we as humans could all get our acts together. Seriously, I know that statement might come across as a little silly, but there is truth in it. The choices we make have consequences. For every action, a reaction, blah blah. Think before you act. If we all just stopped and asked ourselves, ‘Is this a good choice or a bad choice? How is this going to affect the people around me? How is this going to impact my future?’ , it would go a long way in improving the human race and the relationships we hold. Our choices, each one of them, no matter how small or trivial they may seem have consequences. Our choices affect those around us. At times, they affect others in ways we never imagined.

::Steps down off soapbox::

Well, now that I have that out of my system. Today is going to be a long, but good day. I woke up, I have air in my lungs and my heart is still beating. That is enough for me; everything else is just a bonus. Tonight is my late night at the animal hospital. I actually enjoy late nights with the crew on Wednesdays. Always fun and a bit crazy at times, but I love every minute of it. Thursday will be an early day, but a day spent in a mandated meeting. Meh. Friday is my OFF DAY! A day in which I am free to do whatever it is my creative little heart desires. Over the next few weeks, you will be reading about the 65th Wedding Video project I am working on for my Mamaw and Papaw’s anniversary party the end of June. My little sister is coming over on Friday afternoon to help me organize pictures so we can start putting it together. Well, we are actually adding on to it. My brother and I put the original video together 5 years ago for their 60th anniversary celebration. It will be work, but work well worth the time it requires. Well, the time has come for me to finish up things around the house before heading off to work. Have a great day all!
