About Katie

Hey there, my name is Katie. I am married to my best friend who happens to be a major stud. After suffering through infertility I have been blessed to a mommy to 3 little babies. Most days you will find me shopping with a full stroller and Starbucks in my hand.

  • I’m not here to get political but just to say we are thankful for the amazing teachers we have in our lives! My kiddos were asking questions about the strike yesterday and so in an age appropriate way I explained what I could to them and Gray quietly escaped and came back some time later with this sign she had made and asked to join her teacher today walking the picket line with her sign (and her little sister followed suit) ... we can differ on what side of this political issue we stand but I will say some of the BEST people I know are teachers and they love their students and want to provide the safest and most positive environment for their students to learn! I couldn’t do their job but I am thankful for them and their love for my kiddos because let’s face it, a teacher who doesn’t make school a fun, safe and loving environment will produce children who don’t love and enjoy school and therefore lack a desire to learn! Thank you to @barrett.kim  @melissa_a_stark @heidi_sawatzky  Kristy Patton Tricia Orchard Melissa Marshall Stephanie Hodgson for all you do day in and day out on the day’s even when it’s hard you show up and do the best you can! I’ll admit we feel like we’ve been spoiled with each of you playing a role my babies lives we are blessed to know each of you!
  • Because calories don’t count on your birthday ... and one is an apple so it’s healthy 😉
  • What if you woke up tomorrow and knew it was your last day? What would you do? Who would you call? What would you say?  It shouldn’t take a tragedy for each of us to be reminded what a gift each day is - it’s not promised to us it’s not earned or deserved it’s a gift but how we spend our time with who we spend it with is our choice. Reevaluate what and who is important ... say I love you more, forgive quickly and live life to the fullest!
  • Needed coffee but was sweating after my little incident (see stories) so went to my trusty summer coffee order - it was delish even if it was freezing cold outside!
  • He really wanted a picture with me #not 😂 after a busy weekend we had a few slow minutes while the big kids played outside he watched football and I got my snuggles! Going to bed feeling blessed and ready to take on the new week!👊🏻💪🏻
  • Today felt like New Years Day with the kiddies back at school hubby back at work and I was worried I would be so lonely but instead found out that my hours ran out before my to-do list was finished! Crazy to think all these pages (months) of my calendar will be filled in no time. And yes I use a digital calendar on my phone but I like using a paper one as well... anyone else?
  • A decade! 10 whole years ... wow! It’s really hard to recap all that has happened but safe to say the past 10 years have been the best and yet hardest years of my life. I’ve been stretched in ways I didn’t know I could, I’ve grown deeper in my relationship with Jesus, I’ve learned the value of true friends, celebrated 10 years of marriage, seen the biggest answers to prayer in my life- I became a mom (not just once but 3 times over) I watched my dad fight (and thankfully) beat cancer, we bought our first home, we’ve moved 6 times, built 2 houses, welcomed over 10 babies into our hearts and homes, said more painful goodbyes than I like to count, taken many trips, had some not so great medical diagnoses and yet here we are! I have no idea what 2020 has in store but I’m excited for it! #happynewyear #2020herewecome
  • ✨All is calm, all is bright! ✨The best way to start Jesus Birthday celebrations is by going to our Christmas Eve service at church. Thinking of those who tomorrow will be hard for and thankful for those first responders, hospital staff and my much needed @Starbucks employees who are working tomorrow praying a special blessing on each of you!
  • Merry Christmas Eve Eve! Who is running off coffee and wishing they had their little peoples energy? I can’t be the only one ... 2 days to go!!!🎄
