Why I Hate Resolutions

Jan 5th, 2012

I don’t particularly mind New Year’s Eve celebrations and there is something to be said for champagne, dumb hats and noise makers, but the resolutions drive me bananas. Each year my inner dialogue kicks in and it has gone a little something like this. 2007: This year I am going to lose weight! 2008: This […]

Bad Reputation

Dec 1st, 2011

The rumors being reported by the media are true. I am a married woman. The wedding took place just two days before SEMA and I wasn’t about to miss the biggest show of the year. My new husband, Pat, traveled to Vegas with me and, like any man in his 20’s, he drooled over the […]

Viva La Film

Nov 3rd, 2011

Last year at SEMA I told you that it was all about paint protection film. While this is definitely still the case I have been hearing a new tune. While paint protection demos are still speckling the show floor and tinters are still looking for more info on the product, many attendees are looking at […]

What I Know for Sure

Oct 6th, 2011

I feel so educated. After returning from the International Window Film Tint-Off and Conference I feel like I need a diploma and graduation cap. While inMemphis I learned a lot about our industry and, more importantly, you. I’ve compiled my list of what I know for sure after attending the International Window Film Tint-Off and […]

What’s In a Name?

Aug 25th, 2011

Five letters in three names (all ending in an “E”) is supposed to tell you all about me—Katie Marie Hodge. While I enjoy the organization of a name that is truly symmetrical and even, I am excited to take a new name. In fact, when you see me at SEMA I will be sporting a […]


Jul 21st, 2011

My name is Katie and I am a blogaholic. If there is one thing that the majority of people, including my family and friends, don’t know about me it is probably that I am addicted to blogs. While I really enjoy writing in this blog, my true obsession is finding people that I sort of, […]

Summer Slump

Jun 9th, 2011

I don’t like summer. Call me a “Summer Scrooge” if you must, but I don’t care. It gets so hot and humid and I possess great jealousy of my friends and family that work for school systems and are preparing for months of vacation. It fact it can even make me bitter sometimes. Pretty much […]

The Cone of Shame

May 12th, 2011

I really had no idea how difficult it would be. I thought, “All dogs have to go through this and it happens all the time.” Everyone told me I was worrying for no reason. However, after returning from her spay surgery, my seven month old yellow lab has lost her mind. She has been sentenced […]

It’s a Plan

Apr 14th, 2011

I recently had to buy a giant whiteboard calendar. It has been attached to my fridge for two weeks and I can’t believe I didn’t think of this sooner. My household schedule is fairly insane. My fiancé works a rotating work schedule (two days on, two days off, three days on, two days off, etc.) […]

March Madness

Mar 10th, 2011

Yes, my friends, the time is upon us. It’s that time of year where all of the hard work comes down to just a few weeks. The time when your bets are placed on the table and your paperwork is completed. I do believe March Madness has arrived. I will admit that I don’t watch […]
