being an anderson

first off I AM MARRIED!!! and it is lovely and i love being a wife and i love having such a wonderful man alongside me every day. (on a different note, robyn, i wish thom had the same waist size as me. it is like 3 inches smaller although i suppose even if it was the same, the length of his pants would be a bit ridiculous on me, imagine?!)
we had a wonderful honeymoon in the dominican despite the hotels and flight trying to split us up, and despite my stomach waging war against me halfway through the week.
perfect weather, wonderful people and a beautiful spot.
now we are back and real life is even better than the domin. although we do miss the beach and the pool and the never ending pina colodas and the strangely engrossing man who led the water aroebics (uno dos treize, uno dosee treize).

i am now in a pickle over whether or not to create a new blog. i love katevp. i don't mind losing van patter but vp? and katevp all smooshed together? it is sad. so i ask... am i being a traitor to my new last name if i keep katevp? katea doesn't look as cool, however it does sound pretty cool.

i would consider sharing a blog with thom, however i don't know if he would post, since i don't even think that he reads the one i write now.

ps. welcome to the blogging world robyn and noah. i am stoked.

hey kate...i'll probably still call you kvp for quite some time. anderson will take some getting used to. as for tom's pants, have been know to roll up your pants in the past, so i could see you in tom's...just let me know in advance if you'll be wearing them so i can bring my camera...ha ha.

Hi Kate. I vote keep katevp. It's not being disloyal - we know who you are and that you love Thomas. Your wedding was beautiful and I love you.

Oh kate,

this was a fun little post. and i do think you would be quite cute in thomas's pants. his checkered hat, though, is probably my favourite shared item from your respective wardrobes.

On the katevp question, I think keeping vp is just fine. (and it IS a pretty sweet little moniker).

Much love on that non-virginal head of yours,


(are you allowed to be that racy on line?)

Woah, that is quite racy Robyn.
I am not sure how I feel about that.

Kate...firstly...congratulations...I heard it was FANTASTIC. Second, have you considered an anagram? I did a search for Kate Van Patter Thom Anderson and a good one that came up was "Moth-eaten, transparent vodka"...I think that it would be a great name for a blog. The anagram is the best approach as it truly is a representation of the two becoming one. Also, if you need a good novel that has great anagrams - ask Stevie W for an "Adrian Plass" book - Christian hilarity + anagrams = awsome

Congrats Katharine. I'm so happy that you're happy and that you've found someone to be happy with. Blessings to you both.
