Reese & Her Groceries

by katherine on February 18, 2013

Oh my gosh, this child. Based on the way she stared at us every time we ate, tracking our every bite from plate to mouth, She was probably ready to start solids around month 4. She’s officially been on solids since a couple days before her 6 months bday. Since then, we’ve recently added in […]

Weekly Meal Planning and a free printable!

by katherine on February 11, 2013

I’ve been meal planning now for…I’d say at least 3 or 4 years. I’m a creature of habit. For a very long time I used the same pad of paper to write out our weekly meal plan, our grocery list as well as my weekend to-do list. Well, that pad of paper ran out a […]


Thoughts in my head…

by katherine on November 13, 2012

I’ve got about eleventy-billion one-quarter written blog posts swirling around in my head. Instead of either a) trying to find time to finish them all or 2) just flat out not even starting them, I figured I’d toss all these random thoughts into one blog post…like a goulash of sorts. {For the record? This will […]


Digesting My Weekend.

by katherine on October 15, 2012

And I mean that both literally and figuratively. My weekend was spent being completely immersed in NASCAR and eating. While I’m still sorting through everything I learned I will say this: after this weekend I have a much greater appreciation for NASCAR as a sport, and of course Toyota is continuing to impress me. So […]


Extended Weekend? Sort of.

by katherine on May 29, 2012

Ry & I are home today. But not because we had planned on taking an extended long-weekend. Her mysterious non-stop cough is back. Along with a leaky faucet nose and a wheeze that just won’t die. So we’re hanging out on the couch. She’s got a sippy full of juice and I’ve got a cup […]


I work and I cook and it’s NBD.

by katherine on April 5, 2012

Today I’m over on Liberating Working Moms sharing some of my tips & tricks for “Working Mom Meals Made Easy”… If there’s one thing with this whole working mom gig I feel like I’ve got a pretty good handle on, it’s dinner time. In a given month, we eat out maybe one time. Yep, you read that […]

Steppin’ Out {#ToyotaWomen Style}

by katherine on March 4, 2012

This week I headed down to LA to meet with Toyota USA and some of the other women that have been selected to be a part of TWIN (Toyota Women’s Influencer Network). After a full day of learning about Toyota as a company, their brand, their passion, driving their cars and touring their campus we […]


The Latelies this Week & a Friday Funny

by katherine on February 10, 2012

Rylee is going to be at school on Valentine’s Day this year…I am ridiculously excited to go buy some Valentine’s this weekend and write them out with her. Rylee was about in tears last night at dinner because apparently when we told her one day she’ll grow up and move out it hurt her feelings. […]


The Cheese Stands Alone: A Battle of Wills

by katherine on January 30, 2012

Anyone that knows my husband will read this next line and think “Uh, duh”. But if you’ve never had the pleasure of meeting him, I’ll fill you in on something… He is extremely stubborn. He takes after his father and his grandmother this way. And our daughter? Well, let’s just say that apple didn’t fall […]



by katherine on December 28, 2011

Christmas was perfect in just about every way possible this year. There was family time. There was lots (and lots) of good food. There was laughter. And there was magic. I don’t know what it was about this year, age I’m guessing, but something just clicked with Rylee and the Christmas Spirit was alive and […]
