Jill here.


Today is Kate’s Birthday!

In our group of friends, everything exciting ends with “Palooza.” I think maybe our friend Meghan started it? I don’t know….but however it happened, it stuck…and it’s awesome. Everything seems way more exciting and intriguing when you end it with “Palooza.” Try it!

Are you in finals right now? “Finalspalooza!”

Automatically you feel better, don’t you?

ANYWAY…This blog goes out to Kate, Katie, K-Rap, K-Funk, Katherinepalooza! She’s pretty much the coolest kid in town, so leave her some birthday love and eat some candy today in honor of her…because she LOVES candy!

Wishing you the best birthday and best year ever, Kate…28 is great. It rhymes, so it must be true. Phoebe said so.


Also…tonight is the A Night For Hope benefit concert. Can’t wait to see some of you there and thanks to everyone else who is supporting and sending their love from afar! Should be a fantastic night!

    Yay, I’m not the only one who likes to use “-palooza”! Coincidentally, in my head, I have also thought of Kate as K-Rap before too (and Jill as J-Pick, in case you were wondering)! Haha! πŸ˜€

    But anyway…

    Happy 28 to Kate the great! πŸ™‚ Have a blast celebrating this special day!

  27. H Nicole Young Says:

    Somehow missed actually posting on your exact b-day, but close enough — HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KATE!!! And guess what? I love candy, too! What are the chances?

    Wish I had known about finalspalooza way back when. That truly does sound so much better. Would have really come in handy I think.

    And speaking of fun word things, loving this J-Pick, K-Rap thing going on in the comments. Never thought of it that way, but that is sooo cool, and yes, from now on you can call me Ni-Yo. Oops, what a minute. Why does that sound so familiar? LOL

    Sounds like the love-a-kid-palooza went well tonight and everybody had a blast, so yippee for that. Can’t wait to see the YouTube videos coming out later, or so it is “hoped”, at least in this “house.” Budumpa. (Okay, so it’s not palooza level stuff but I try). LOL πŸ™‚

  28. myriam Says:

    Happy (belated) Birthday, Kate!!! Hope you had an awesome day!

    P.S. You’re right, Jill. “Finalspalooza” actually did sound fun. I’ll have to remember to call it that next semester! :p

  29. rhonda Says:

    Happy birthday Kate. I hope all of your birthday wishes come true. Thank you for the blessing I received last at the show. It warmed my heart. Merry Christmas
