  1. WIAW–Last Day as a 24 Year Old


    October 31, 2012 by Katie

    Hey everyone! Thank you so much for all your birthday wishes, I loved reading all of them! I had a great birthday, but more on that another time. Today is Wednesday, which means another WIAW post! If you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head over to Peas and Crayons to find out what it’s all about, and to see the other participating blogs!

    Today’s WIAW comes from Monday, my last day as a 24 year-old! I started off the morning with my current favorite breakfast: 2 eggs over easy on a sweet potato! I top it with hot sauce from Trader Joe’s and Monday I also sliced and steamed 2 big carrots and mixed them in the last of my Tzatziki sauce from Trader Joe’s…

  2. Happy Birthday To Me…


    October 30, 2012 by Katie

    Happy Birthday to me,

    Happy Birthday to me,

    Happy Birthday dear meeeeeeeeeeeeeee,

    Happy birthday to ME! Yay!

    Did I not mention it’s my birthday today? Haha, well it is! Things have been so busy for me that I’d forgotten it was coming up!

    Well, today I am 25 years old. 1/4 of a century. I’d like to say that it has all gone by so fast, but really, I kind of feel 25. Granted, I am no where near where I’d imagined I’d be at this point in my life. When I was younger I always thought I’d be married by 25, and having children when I was 27/28. Or at least have a job… HA.

  3. Dark Places–Book Review


    October 29, 2012 by Katie

    I hope you all had a great weekend! I did, a good and very busy weekend! I was taking care of Molly this weekend, which tends to take up a lot of time, and then I also had blogger book club AND a trail 5K in the burbs!

    The 5K was pretty much a blast. It was the Thriller in Schiller, it’s inaugural year, and it was a Halloween-themed trail run out in a forest preserve in Schiller, IL. I ran the race with Kelsey, Lindsay, Emily and Alyssa and it was so much fun I couldn’t breath because I was laughing so hard!

    Alyssa was a referee, I was a runaway bride (took your suggestions!) and Kelsey, Lindsay and Emily were Cone Heads.

  4. Best Body Boot Camp–Week 1

    Hey everyone, I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend! Molly and I sure are… Now that I’m doing Tina’s …

  5. Friday Blog Love


    October 26, 2012 by Katie

    In the spirit of Meg’s High Five Fridays, I’ve decided to make today’s post about some of my favorite blog posts over the past week or so! I read a lot of blogs (whether I comment or not!) and I’ve read some great posts so I wanted to share them with everyone!

    Annette basically rocks my socks, which is why she’s on here twice – She wrote a great post about Fitspiration and one of the quotes really hit home with me:

  6. Thursday Thoughts


    October 25, 2012 by Katie

    Goooooood Morning! (afternoon/evening?) I hope you all have been having a good week! And if not, you’ve almost made it to the weekend! I’m super excited for this weekend because 1) I have blogger book club, 2) I’m running the Thriller Schiller 5K (still need a costume…) and 3) I’M MOLLY-SITTING!!!!! Who doesn’t love a weekend full of Molly, right? Now, on to this week’s Thursday Thoughts!

    1. I’ve been wanting candy corn but I didn’t want to buy a whole bag because I knew I ‘d end up eating it all in like 2 days… So I decided to beat the system and go to a bulk candy store near me. Best. Idea. Ever. I got my candy corn fix and a couple other fun candies…

  7. WIAW–Busy Sunday


    October 24, 2012 by Katie

    Hey everyone, Happy Wednesday! I love Wednesdays, because once the day starts I’m halfway done with my school week! (yay for no class Fridays!) I’m also excited for this weekend since I have our blogger book club and then the Thriller in Schiller 5K!

    I wanted to remind you all that we’re reading Dark Places by Gillian Flynn and I’ve decided that if you want to read along and post your own review on your blog, I’ll do a review round up! This idea is totally Julie’s on Peanut Butter Fingers, but I love the idea of everyone reading and discussing a book together so I wanted to do it as well! (even got her seal of approval!) I’ll be posting the review roundup on Monday, October 29th so e-mail me the link to your post by 5am that morning ( And if you’re late, send it along and I’ll add it in later!

    I also realize this gives you less than a week if you haven’t read the book… but I’ll do this every month so you’ll get a chance again!

    Now on to What I Ate Wednesday! If you’re new to WIAW, head…

  8. Scary Pancakes, BEWARE!


    October 23, 2012 by Katie

    Okay, okay, so they’re not actually scary, they’re just green. But some people might find that a little scary, right? I think so… humor me.

    Before we get to the recipe though, I wanted to share a few fun things! Kelsey does this every Friday, but I don’t get as many awesome search terms as she does, so I have to wait to accumulate some good ones (e.g. the last time I did this was in the Spring…).

    what is my average speed if i ran 6 miles in 59 minutes and 10 seconds (I’m not a calculator…)
    teenager post 5775
    captain crunch oats (um, that sounds good!)
    just want it to be over (my blog???)
    running tights boyfriend (now we’re talking!)
    i love peetas buns (who doesn’t?)…

  9. How Do I Do It?


    October 22, 2012 by Katie

    Happy Monday!

    I’ve been asked several times over the past couple months how I manage to get everything done that I need to with my busy schedule. Honestly, this makes me laugh a bit because most 3rd Year Law Students have jobs along with school and I just blog, workout and volunteer with Girls On The Run… But I prefer having a life outside of school.

    Anyway, I thought I’d give you all my tips for time management that I’ve learned throughout college and law school…

  10. Make a Schedule!


    October 21, 2012 by Katie

    Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a good weekend! Molly wanted to show off her new blue harness. Despite the fact that it may cause people to think she’s a boy, it’s actually a very pretty color on her.

    She also wanted to show you her nose:

    I mentioned last week that I’ll be participating in Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp, which officially starts tomorrow! I loved it last spring and I’m looking forward to doing it again. My half-marathon training doesn’t begin for a couple weeks, so it’s all about boot camp right now…
