From the age of about 10 until 21, I wanted to be Katie Couric.

Let's clarify: the Today Show Katie Couric.

Not the CBS Evening News Katie (no offense).

The difference? The TODAY SHOW of course!! I am beyond obsessed with the Today Show. Watched it every morning before school Middle School through Upper School, and then whenever I could in college (but let's face it, that didn't happen often). I went through a phase (is 11 years considered a "phase"?) where I legit thought I would one day become Katie Couric's co-anchor. Ohhh life. May 31, 2006 was a sad, sad day (the day she left Today). Even without KC, I am still obsessed. These days, I consider myself lucky if I am running 5 minutes late trying to get out the door at 7 a.m. for work - because in those precious 5 minutes I get to watch the headlines. Nothing gets my day to a great start better than hearing ". . .this is Today with Matt Lauer and Meredith Viera." I swear if I didn't have to leave for work at 7, and instead could leave at 8, I totes would still get up early so I could make a cup of coffee (slash walk to Starbucks), sit on my couch and enjoy the wonderfulness that is Matt, Al, Meredith, Ann and Natalie. What a group.

Love it.
