Air In My Tires.

January 28, 2009

So I just had to put air in my tires.  I know some girls can do this lickity split…I understand it’s not rocket science, but I don’t like doing it.  I always think I’m putting too much air in and the tire is gonna explode…my hands always get this layer of filthy black stuff on them and I swear I don’t ever do it right anyway….

So that’s why I hate putting air in my tires…which I just did in the sleet/snow that is hitting Nashville.

So I’m consoling myself with some peanut butter M&M’s.  

So good.

So there.

Starburst,Thermal and The Kings…

January 21, 2009

Here are a few things I’ve been obsessed with recently:

Candy

Pink Starburst.  Why don’t they make a bag of JUST pink Starburst…if I ruled the world I’d make a bag of just Pink Starburst.  I mean, I don’t completely hate the orange and red ones…but the yellow ones….no thank you.  Which is funny because in the “Tropical” Starburst bag…the yellow ones are my favorite.  They are Pina Colada flavor…how twisted is that?  Haha. 

kate thermal

The “thermal” setting on PhotoBooth on my MAC.  I mean the above picture would have looked A LOT different in the regular setting…trust me!  The thermal setting kind of makes you look like you’ve been punched in both eyes..and it sort of makes you look like you have a slight case of jaundice…but I dunno…I kind of like it.  If you have a MAC and haven’t discovered the thermal setting…check it out.

 kings_of_leon_obtn_cover_selectThe new Kings of Leon album.  I can’t take credit for this obsession…this was all Jill.  She pointed the record out to me & it’s been playing non-stop.  So good.  

Alright…just some mid-week thoughts from me…

Love,

kate

New Song on January 17th–“Stay”

January 17, 2009

We thought we’d share a little bit about why we wrote this song.  This is a song about not wanting to be alone and asking someone to put up with all your craziness and to not give up on you.  Loneliness sucks!!!  And could possibly be one of the worst feelings ever….this song asks someone to stay with you…even when it doesn’t make sense, even when you don’t deserve it.  

Love,

jill and kate

 

STAY

 

Please don’t leave me high and dry

Please believe me when i lie

Please protect me when i can’t fight

Please come find me when i go hide

Please keep calling when it’s too late

Please forget all my past mistakes

And when i don’t show, please just wait

Please don’t leave me

 

Please just stay

Turn around and wait

It’s not too late

To save us

Stay

 

Please remember i’m not that strong

Please forgive me when i do you wrong

And don’t forget me

When i’m gone

Please don’t leave me

 

Please just stay

Turn around and wait

It’s not too late

To save us

Stay

 

Things change when you go away

Things change when you go away

Things change when you go away

So save us, Stay

 

Please just stay

Turn around and wait

It’s not too late

To save us

Stay

First blog of 2009.

January 13, 2009

Hey hey. So we’ve been all over the place the past few weeks so haven’t been blogging as much, but check it out. We’re back and here’s a little look at what’s been going on in J&K world since the EP release. 🙂

We got to go to Canada and go snowboarding, zip-trekking, dogsledding, snowmobiling and overall got to have a fantastic time with friends. That is also where Kate celebrated her 26th birthday…yay! Here are a few pics…

Here we are getting ready to zip-trek…it was SO cold so we were so bundled up…i mean, it was COLD.

Zip-trekking was AWESOME! Oh and we didn’t both get orange jackets on purpose…haha…jpzip1

Happy Birthday Kate! kate-bday

So Canada was awesome and after that we went to the lovely Los Angeles for a few days before each heading home for Christmas. Kate made her way to Chicago and Jill went to New Hampshire…both places were cold and snowy. It was good to be with family and see some old friends. Here is a picture outside of Jill’s house in NH taken over Christmas…brrr…nhsnow1

Although the snow is pretty and lovely and everything nice (sense the sarcasm here) it was pretty exciting that we got to go celebrate the start of 2009 in warm and sunny Mexico! Here are some pictures of the Mayan ruins and some other cool stuff… mayanmexicomexico

We had an awesome time. We’re really glad to be back in Nashville too though. We’ve been writing a lot and are excited about the new song on the 17th…only 3 days away now. Get ready. 🙂

Peace out.
