On the flip side, that probably means I’ve been succeeding as a productive employee ;) I’ve got an extremely busy workweek ahead of me, but I wanted to pop in and say hello, yes I’m alive, and here are some pictures from my weekend to prove it! … Continue reading

What My {Teacher} Mom Has Taught Me

Today, and this past week, mark two very important (Hallmark-created) holidays for which I’d like to take a minute to commemorate. Teacher Appreciation Week and Mother’s Day. I am fortunate to have been blessed with a wonderful mother, who just so happens to also be a teacher. It is because I’ve seen how hardworking and … Continue reading

So……… the big B word is bout to rear its ugly head again. That’s right – it’s budget time. I didn’t do an official “budget check-in” for the month of March…..Stuff happens.

As Becky puts it, Treat Yourself Tuesday is a way to reflect on the ways you’ve treated yourself lately: “Do whatever feels best for you. Do something that will … Continue reading

5 Ways to Stay Healthy, Even at Your Busiest

5 Ways to Stay Healthy, Even at Your Busiest

I feel like I say this every time I’ve written lately, but life has gotten really busy. I thought that cutting out a night of dodgeball each week would free up extra time in my weeknights, but in true Katie fashion, I’ve really just used it as an excuse to take on more non-dodgeball activities. … Continue reading

Mango-Macadamia Granola Bars

So it’s no secret that since I’ve started eating “healthy” – or whatever – I’ve become a breakfast eater. My breakfast game was at its all time peak during my couple of months of unemployment late last year when I got to make breakfast at home every morning. Toast, eggs, cheese and salsa, yessssss #allthethings … Continue reading

Another beautiful California spring weekend is in the books! I’d say it was worth it to brave those 1-2 weeks of rainy weather last month, because we’re definitely making up for it now with more than a week of 80+ degree temps, and more on the horizon! I got to enjoy the weather a bit, … Continue reading
