It’s FriYay! – Pacific North WET Edition

by katherine on July 8, 2016

It was a short work week… why do short weeks always screw with me so badly!? I can’t believe it’s Friday. If you remember last week, I was looking forward to planning our first camping trip as a family of 5! But now it’s raining and it’s supposed to continue all weekend. So we’re not […]

Opening Night

by katherine on May 1, 2014

On Monday night Rylee suited up in her ugly as all get out tie-dyed uniform and played her first official T-Ball game of the season. It was hilarious, adorable and infuriating all at the same time. Most of the kids on our team {notice I say our team, and not both teams. ahem.} had no clue […]


Opening day!

by katherine on April 7, 2014

We walked in the house hungry, exhausted and covered in a fine layer of dirt mixed with sun block. My once white shirt was no more and my pants were covered in gold fish cracker crumbs. We all got washed up and I rushed to put dinner on the table…only an hour later than normal. […]

Scenes from the Weekend

by katherine on September 18, 2013

Oh man friends, last weekend is exactly what I needed…not only was it picture perfect, it was in fact, perfect all the way around. I kicked off the weekend with a girl’s night at a winery down the road from my house. Good food. Good friends. Good wine. Win-win-win. The girls slept in until almost […]


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 […]


C K Say I Do!

by katherine on July 18, 2013

The entire reason we went to Hawaii was because my sister was getting married there! I’ve been wishing/hoping a family member or close friend would have a destination wedding for quite some time because DUH! Automatic vacation! The wedding was beautiful and I hope it was everything my sister and her husband had hoped it […]



by katherine on July 15, 2013

We spent months anticipating our trip to Hawaii for my sister’s wedding. Then we blinked and it was over. On one hand, it was amazing. On the other, it was exhausting. This was mine & Andy’s first vacation* since our honeymoon almost 8 years ago. This was both the girls’ first plane rides and trip […]


Work wins so you get a 10 minute update

by katherine on June 11, 2013

Work is busy. I’m home with a sick kid (yes, again). So I’m left juggling a sick kid and the work I brought home. I’m tired, you guys. Hawaii is 17 days away and calling my name. Anyway, my point is this, I’ve got 5 half completed posts sitting in my drafts. I’m sure I’ll […]

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 […]


Wordless Wednesday: Reese’s First Swing

by katherine on May 8, 2013

Here I am doing another one of those “OH LOOK! It’s my kid’s first time doing XYZ!…that happened two months ago.” Meh…I figured out a long time ago I’m not going to be winning any Mother of the Year awards. So, LOOK! Here’s Reese swinging for the first time!…that happened back in March… After a […]
