While brainstorming about what to write blogs about, I wanted to find a way for my readers to get to know some of the awesome people who I know. The best way I could come up with was an interview series.
Meet my friend Katie. Katie and I met randomly on MySpace. If I recall she was looking to meet another couple around the same age as her and her husband and we fit the bill. Eventually we met face to face and we’ve really hit it off. So… without further ado – get to know Katie.
Name: Katie Smith McKay
Location: Watervliet, NY
Hails from: Latham, NY
Relationship Status: Married
Children: None not sure I want any
What is the most challenging part of your job?
Day job – I’m not happy at and I hate the phone, feel like a glorified telemarketer sometimes.
Pampered Chef– Keeping bookings consistent and avoiding cancellations – though that is improving as of late….
How long have you been a Pampered Chef Consultant? 2-1/2 years. www.pamperedchef.biz/katiezdreamz
How did you and your husband Jeff meet? Jeff and I met when I was 20 and he was 25 through a mutual friend.
What did you and your husband Jeff do on your first date? We went to see a movie The Bone Collector I think that was it, we met at theater after he got out of work on a Friday night. We didn’t do much “dating” as in going out mostly just hung out and talked and hung out with friends very casual dating atmosphere in the beginning I guess.
What have you always wanted to do but were too afraid to try? That’s a really good question and I feel like I should have an answer but I really don’t. I could say starting my own business but I’ve decided to work toward that plunge so I guess I lost my fear in some ways. The best I can come up with is maybe sing in public sober and non-karaoke.
What’s your favorite comfort food? Hmmm that’s hard……. I enjoy food so to pick a favorite comfort food……….. I guess I’ll be boring and say pepperoni pizza or if I’m sick Chicken Noodle Soup.
Would you go back in time if given the chance? Yes
What would you do? If I could go back 10 years ago, I’d know that wedding planning is my true passion and could have started pursuing that then.
What do you like to spend money on? Wish I had money to spend on things I liked to spend it on. Mostly just goes to bills and necessities.
What is your favorite board game? I LOVE board games so I really can’t pick a favorite, but I guess if I absolutely had to pick one I’d say Cranium.
What is your favorite way to relax? Reading
What’s your biggest pet peeve? Socks and sandals
You and I met on MySpace. Are you surprised we hit it off as well as we have? Honestly yes I am but I’m glad!:)
You’ve just closed on 1st home. What part of home-ownership are you most looking forward to? All of it! I can’t wait to pay towards an investment instead of rent to landlords that don’t even care about their property. Being able to do whatever I want, paint tack knock down walls. Having space and freedom.
