It’s the last Fri-Yay of the year!

by katherine on December 30, 2016

Ok, so it’s been a while since I’ve turned out a FriYay post, but I had a good run there for a while. Actually, we’ll go with good-ish. But when I logged into my dashboard this morning to mark some comments as spam, I realized today is Friday. And the last Friday of the year. […]


Sunday Tired

by katherine on November 3, 2013

I’m sure part of it has to do with the whole DST thing but I’m positive it’s mainly because today Lindsey and I drove up to Portland for the PNWBlogger holiday party. Then when I got home it was go-go-go with two kiddos that think it’s an hour later than it really is. Point is? […]


Currently and such

by katherine on August 29, 2013

Work hard, play hard. Or something.

by katherine on August 21, 2013

Oh Thursday, where did you come from? You sneaky bitch. As you can probably tell from the lack of, well anything, around these parts that I’ve been a bit…preoccupied lately. Last week was straight up nuts–my birthday Monday, anniversary on Tuesday, then crazy work stuff Wednesday all through the following Monday that had me up […]


The busy season

by katherine on May 14, 2013

I really try not to use the word busy to describe my life in a conversation when someone asks how things are going. Because as a family with two young children, two working parents, a dog, two houses and 12+ acres to take care of, that’s just life. Our reality every day. There is always […]


So turns out I’m not old, I’m sick.

by katherine on March 26, 2013

So, remember how the other day I was all “oh I’m so old and pathetic because I ended the weekend sore and exhausted just from doing my mom thing”? Of course you do…it was just yesterday. Anyway, turns out maybe I’m not so old and pathetic after all. Sunday evening I had a twinge of […]


Oh yea…it’s election day.

by katherine on November 6, 2012

So…today I’m voting. And it’s not because I want to. But because I have to. Seriously. I hate politics. And pretty much everything that surrounds them. Probably because I have no strong feelings/affiliations one way or another. I am registered as one particular party, but have been known to vote for the other. I tend […]


Step One

by katherine on October 9, 2012

You cut a hole in the box. Step two. You put y–kidding. KIDDING Funny though, right? I’m on a roll this week with innuendo titles. Anyway. Let’s talk about losing baby weight. Superfuntopic…not. I’ll be real with you. I gained 35 pounds while I was pregnant with Reese.  And for the longest time after having […]


The story goes a little something like this… Over the last couple of years I’ve read and followed lots of blogs. Many of which are bloggers right here in the good old Pacific Northwest. Last year, a few bloggers got together and decided to put together a PNW Blogger meet-up in Seattle in September. I […]


You know when one thing goes wrong it’s like a million things go wrong? Well I feel like that happens to us all.the.time. And right before, or was it right after, Christmas was no exception. Andy was on his way to cut firewood with my dad in our Suburban and they got home way to […]
