Currently V.3

by katherine on March 28, 2013

Oh hello Thursday…fancy meeting you here! My mind is currently cluttered with a big ole list of things to do before our First Annual “Rice Ranch” Easter Egg Hunt for Adults (and kids) {but mostly the adults} so I figured I’d play along with Lindsey and her friend and link up with their “Currently” thing. […]

Pushing Life to the Limits

by katherine on October 19, 2012

At 6:10 AM yesterday morning as I’m pouring Rylee some cereal and begging a fussy, hungry Reese for just a few extra seconds of patience so I can pour myself a cup of coffee, Andy looks at me from the living room and says, “Is your mom taking the girls tomorrow?” And I just turned […]


Stuff. And things. And photo dump.

by katherine on October 2, 2012

I’m busy. So you’re getting a bulleted list today. I’m back at work full time now. It’s weird. But right. Reese has her first day of real-deal daycare today. I know she’s going to be super well cared for, but it was weird leaving her. One of the FULL bottles I took to daycare leaked […]


On my heart: Beside Myself

by katherine on September 19, 2012

I normally like to keep things light hearted around these parts, so this is not an easy thing for me to put out there. I’m one blessed wife mama lady…I know that. But there’s something that’s been happening lately that I just can’t shake off. What’s the saying? Actions speak louder than words? Well, if […]


Outtakes from a fake photo shoot

by katherine on September 19, 2012

So, basically…I’m dumb. I thought, hey, I’ve got one of these fancy cameras, I think I’ll try and use it! Pffft…that was my first mistake. My second mistake? My subjects…a newborn, a 4 year old and a dog. Laughable. While I did get 1 or 2 “keepers” I got more that were just plain funny […]

Today I lost my temper. Today I yelled. Today brought some less than awesome news. Today there was crying for no reason. Today was a rough one. If there was ever a day that would send me over the edge, today my toes were right there. Today made it seem like going back to work […]


There I sat, cross legged on a yoga mat. Lights dimmed. Candles lit. Light, relaxing music playing in the background. I’d been going to prenatal yoga for months now, so the whole “go around the room, say your name and how far along you are” thing was nothing new. But today, the instructor threw something […]


Saturday afternoon, we set up some of our Christmas decorations. Sunday morning, within seconds of waking up, Rylee wanted to see what Santa brought her in her stocking…because NOW IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME!!!  !!   ! {seriously, she was that excited at 6:57 AM} To keep from having to explain that every morning for the next […]


No Mail Mom Fail

by katherine on November 16, 2011

A couple of months ago there was a note in Rylee’s cubby at school. I don’t remember the exact wording now, but it said something about Miss Sarah {her teacher} putting a mailbox {AKA empty tissue box with the word “mailbox” on it…3 year olds are SO gullible} on the window sill of their classroom […]

Pity…party of one.

by katherine on July 12, 2011

These last few days I’ve just been in a funk. Last night it all seemed to be rising quickly to my breaking point and I had this great post I was writing in my head all about the crappy stuff and how tough my life is and woe is me. A regular old pity party. […]
