Don’t Let Life Take Control Of You


October 3, 2014 by Katie

This week was not my finest, nor my most enjoyable. I actually had a lot of great times and great moments, but I let my stress and my schedule get the better of me, rather than doing my best to handle it well.

We can’t choose what life life sends our way, but we can certainly decide how we react to whatever cards we’re dealt…

Well hey there! Sorry for the lack of posting this week, but it’s been a busy one. Plus the fact …

Spotify Favorites


September 30, 2014 by Katie

After the encouragement from a friend, I’ve recently become quite a fan of Spotify. You can search for your favorite songs and create playlists on your computer for FREE. And if you subscribe (about $10 a month) you can play these free playlists on your listening devices, even if you’re offline. I signed up because I realized if you download even somewhere around 7-8 songs a month, you’re more than making up for the fee…

1. Well my first and most important thought of the day: I start another temp job today! Haha so not a permanent job, but again, I’m earning money and not in my apartment all day! I do have to say the past couple of days were much more relaxing knowing that I would actually be starting a job soon!

2. This past weekend I got to see my friends Lindsay and Ian get married!!! It was fun to spend the weekend catching up…

Book Reviews!

Are you shocked? More book reviews! It’s never ending, I know.

On The Fence by Kasie West


From Goodreads:

For sixteen-year-old Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, being raised by a single dad and three older brothers has its perks. She can outrun, outscore, and outwit every boy she knows—including her longtime neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden. But when it comes to being a girl, Charlie doesn’t know the first thing about anything. So when she starts working at chichi boutique to pay off a speeding ticket, she finds herself in a strange new world of makeup, lacy skirts, and BeDazzlers. Even stranger, she’s spending time with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game.

One Word Weekend


September 22, 2014 by Katie

Normally this is called “One Word Wednesday” but I figure the alliteration still works with “weekend,” right?

So what is One Word “Weekend?” In Lindsay’s words:

The only rule of “One Word Wednesday” is that you must label your pictures with one word. And it MUST be the first word that comes to mind (and yes, you can put two words together, hashtag-style if need be). If you can’t play by those rules, you probably should just sit this one out. Yeah. That’d probably be best.

Trying Out Piyo Workouts


September 19, 2014 by Katie

Before I get started, I wanted to share with you all Anna’s Etsy shop! She’s the inspiration behind my post in general today since she introduced me to Piyo, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to share her shop. She makes the cutest scarves and also does water-colored stationary. Be sure to check it out:


Now on to my new workout program! For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that I’m trying out Piyo workouts. Apparently it’s a very popular thing right now, although I’d never heard of it until I started…

Thursday Thoughts

1. I cannot say that I’m enjoying unemployment… Some people keep telling me to take advantage of this free time, but that’s not easy when you’re worried about paying your bills and groceries. Plus I constantly feel guilty when I’m not being productive – I’m supposed to go out with friends tonight and I feel like I shouldn’t be having any fun until I get a job! Weird, maybe, but it’s true.

2. Speaking of attempting to be productive, I just opened an Etsy shop! I

Into The Unknown


September 15, 2014 by Katie

Something about September always seems to bring change for me. My temp job, which I’ve had since February ended last week and now I’m looking into the unknown. I was in the same exact place one year ago, but my outlook is so incredibly different.

Hey Hey! Happy Thursday to you all. Time for another day of Thursday Thoughts!

1. Sunday night I went over to my friend Sarah’s apartment to watch a video for our bible study. We decided to do it up on the roof and it was such a gorgeous night!
