news you can use #4: football, kate, and a birthday



tonight my favorite texas longhorns will be taking on SEC #1 team, alabama, in pasadena, california for the BCS championship title.  all i gotta say about that is i will be wearing my very best burnt orange and screaming gooooo texas!!


{i heart you, colt.}




F.I.N.A.L.L.Y.  finally my homegirl kate did something with that hot mess hair she use to have.  quite frankly i can't help but seeing a slightly older, slighter less attractive version of gretchen from the real housewives of orange county.  i could be wrong.  no, actually i couldn't be.  i'm never wrong.  moving on.  check these fab before and after photos of her first go at a makeover:



this before and after photo tells me there is still hope for me.  plastic surgery apparently does some amazing things for a woman.  it gives me solace knowing i can at least get a makeover after pushing some little humans out of my "pikachu" (as chelsea handler likes to call her lady part) one day.  i actually find kate semi-attractive.  and with the new 'do, she's looking great.  not beautiful, but attractive.  that heinously awful hairstyle overshadowed her cute face.  i think i'm going to kind of miss it though.


and saving the very best for last... it is my little sister's 11th birthday today!  happy happy birthday, BM!

{i know my readers are so clever, you all got my hook 'em horns reference, right??  just sticking with a theme here, people.}

HOOK 'EM! I'll be watching at the Alamo Drafthouse. It's going to be awesome.

happy birthday to your little sister- i wish i had a little sister!
also, while i agree that kate looks better, i have two thoughts:
1. i am more interested in the secrets of the jersey shore.
2. me thinks she needs some better quality extensions, as those are looking a bit plastic.

and *go longhorns* (just for you...)

ROOOLL TIDE!!! LOL - I'm from Alabama so....I guess I gotta support them tonight. Even though I'm an Auburn fan, so I actually hate Alabama...Hmm.. Maybe it'll be TEXAS I root for indtead ;-)

Happy Birthday to your sister! Hm....Kate is an interesting one. She definitely looks better than she did, but does it look a little mullet-ish to you? Just wondering.

Masala Chica said...

Happy Birthday to your sister! I am sad because I really, really think Kate has so much potential but I don't know who the bloody hell is giving her these makeovers. However, the new one IS an improvement. She has the potential to be a really cute, cute lady.

Now that she has dumped that excess baggage of a toolbox husband, that is.

Lovely to meet you Meredith. Following too now!

Kate's before and after photo tells you that there's still hope for you? Are you kidding? You're gorgeous! You do not need to change a thing crazy woman!
Happy Birthday to your sister!

Stacy said...

I'm obsessed with Chelsea Handler! Now shut your face! Haha.

Children of the 90s said...

I love Kate's new hair! I know she just got extensions and it's not really news, but it's a huge step up from that inverse mullet she had going on.

Lindsey said...

HOOK EM! I'm rockin my orange!!!!!!

Taylor @ Jimmy Choos and a Baby Too said...

I agree Kate's hair was a HOT MESS!!!!

Christin said...

Kate Gosslin makes me want to gag...

Becky said...

We will be watching the game tonight too! Holla! And I saw Kate's hair yesterday on People.com ( I read every day religiously) and it does look better! But YES she is channeling her inner orange county housewife! LOL! That is too funny!

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Meredith. Chelsea is far more partial to the term Kaslopis. Get your act together already.

Many, many happy birthday wishes to the mini flash pasteurized.

And never put your looks in the same sentence as Kate's. Thanks. You're young and hot.

meredith said...

monique,

1. i prefer PIKACHU. it's my blog, i do what i want, yo.

2. i went to her school during lunch to bring her class a cookie cake. the kids are bigger than me and they stare. a lot.

2. you never know what my PIKACHU (or face, for that matter) is going to look like after all of that pushing.

HOOK EM' HORNS!!!!!!

Annie said...

oh my, kate's hair is a bit outta control! ha!
happy birthday to your little sis! :)
have a great day pretty lady!! XO!

Bathwater said...

Um unless you are going to dressed in a cut-off tee and short shorts and they are going to cut away to you during the game how will I need this? ;)

Kiera said...

ohhh kate. hahha. so funny. Can't wait to take a look around here! And thanks for solving a little part of my identity crisis :)

Kiera said...

ps you seem fantastically exciting. for real.

Nathan said...

HOOK'EM \m/

Mrs Montoya said...

I did NOT know about Kate's extensions - she almost looks good now. Still can't stand her, but at least I can't make fun of her anymore for that terrible hair.

Hook 'em horns! Hope things go well for UT!!! We'll be watching

Cathy said...

Happy Birthday to your little sis!

Ah, the many looks of Kate...wow. Is that pic of her as a brunette her ugly stepsister or something?! Eek.

ScoMan said...

Go longhorns! And happy birthday to your sister.

And I don't know who that woman is but are those two pictures really her? I guess they have to be. A before and after shot doesn't work if it's two different people.. well it does work, but it's dishonest.

It's so easy for people to change their appearance these days.

AJ said...

holy crap. I didn't even recognize her. Are you joking?!

LOL! It's like she went into the witness protection program... I think I would like my fat a$$ to go there too! She looks amazing!

Cee said...

I'm not sure about Kate's new hair. I mean it is better than the old hair but something about it looks kinda off to me.

Masala Chica said...

ok I just caught that part about you saying there is hope for you because kate g. got a semi-decent makeover.

umm. do you own a mirror? it's sooo not the same thing.

Llama said...

WHaaaattt?!? Kate has a new do? Thanks for the update! haha! I dont know why but i am semi obsessed with her...shhhh dont tell anyone! hehe

sHp said...

Love Kate's new do...and I'm proud of her for liberating herself! Out with the old, in with the new!!!! PS - And I feel the same way...thank goodness for the art of plastic surgery - I'm scared of what a baby's going to do to me! ha ha ha ha

PS - Honestly, though, you're beautiful so I don't think you'll need any at all!!! :)

Kate House said...

Saw your comments on SurferWife's and Masala Chica's blogs and thought I'd stop by--already enjoying your spot here. And if I may--I just don't know about Kate's extensions. I was stuck in line at the grocery store for 10 minutes tonight and had lots of time to study that People cover. I was more taken by the perfectly matched brows and not-bad eye makeup than the hair, which looks a little bit like Malibu Barbie's 1980s look.

Just sayin'.

Shandal said...

I have an award waiting for you! ;)

The Only Girl said...

Hmmm . . . I'm not sure about the new Kate. I actually kinda like the old Kate - backward mullet and all. I'll have to get used to the new look before making my call. But holey-guacamole on the old dark haired Kate!

Elizabeth Marie said...

HOOK EM! I could care less but all my girls are rooting for texas so I'm bandwagin it!

Kate is literally UNBEWEAVABLE

bananas. said...

what's with the crack weave?! granted she looks better. the faux hawk just wasn't cuttin it but seriously she should've went with shorter extensions, just sayin.

Lindsey said...

I agree! Kate's hair is a hot mess, ugh can't stand her!

jules said...

I'm totally obsessed with Chelsea H.

That Kates come a long way!

A Wedding Story said...

I'm still not crazy about the extensions because they look super fake! I wish that they blended a little better!!

Laura@Cowboy Boots said...

I'm an Aggie's wife so I HAD to cheer for Bama! It was a terrific game though!!!!!
as for Kate's new do...hmmmm let me think on it!

Nomad said...

this game made me want to pull my hair and poke my eyes out... i have been a horns fan since i lived in texas when i was little... i now like your blog, just because you like them...
