Over Your Oats


November 17, 2014 by Katie

One of my favorite things to do during the day is share things I’ve read with my friends. I’ll see something that I think they would like or would benefit them and I will send it their way through an email or a text. I know I’ve done “Link Love” posts here in the past, but I’ve decided that I want to make it more of a weekly thing. I thought I’d call it “Over Your Oats” since I love reading articles and blog posts in the morning while eating breakfast. So here are some articles for you to check out:

Thursday Thoughts

Time for another round of Thursday Thoughts!

1. I feel sorry for my friends – I was very dramatic yesterday morning. Tuesday night I went to get a “trim” and the woman ended up chopping off at least 5 inches and didn’t even do it well. It looks fine straightened, so I will be straightening my for the next several months. It looks like a frizzy triangle. I can’t even put it in a top knot. I’m getting all worked up just thinking about this…

Reading List


November 12, 2014 by Katie

Usually I share reviews of books that I’ve already finished, however today I thought I would mix it up and show you what’s on my “to read” list. There are actually 52 books on my Goodreads list of books that I want to read, which doesn’t include the several books I already have downloaded on my Kindle ready for me when I finally have the time. Right now is when I miss those long breaks we got as students!

Things I’m Loving Lately


November 11, 2014 by Katie

I think it’s time for another post about things that I’m enjoying in my daily life right now! Everything below I purchased myself except for the Skoop Protein Powder & a few Fabletics items – but my review for that is 100% honest. Enjoy!

1. A few weeks ago Skoop sent me a package with their protein powder and a few other products to try out. Their plant-based protein powder is called B-Strong and contains 160 calories, 16 g of protein and 6g of fiber and a complete profile of amino acids. It also contains prebiotics to help your gut absorb nutrients…

1. This past weekend I got to celebrate my birthday! I did a few different things with different friends, and got to try out a new wine bar that I’m now in love with and Bub City’s brunch! I’ve only been there Thursday nights for live music, but their Bloody Mary bar was epic…

Getting Off Your High Horse – One Thing I’ve Learned About Christianity


November 4, 2014 by Katie

Currently my church is in the middle of what we call The New Testament Challenge. We are reading the entire new testament with our small groups in eight weeks, but with a book that has removed all the chapters and verse numbers and re-ordered the books each with a historical introduction so that it feels as though I’m reading a story. I’m very thankful for this challenge because, as a newer believer, I haven’t read many books of the bible from start to finish.

In the New Testament, many of the books are letters written by a man named Paul. He is writing to groups of new believers,..

Since my 27th birthday was this past thursday (p.s. THANK YOU for all the birthday wishes!), I thought I’d share with you all 27 life lessons that I’ve learned in my 27 years.

1. Focus on yourself and not everyone else – comparison gets you nowhere but unhappy.
