WIAW Meal Prep Style


October 8, 2014 by Katie

Wait, WHAT? A What I Ate Wednesday Post!?!?!? I know, the insanity. I cannot remember the last time I did a WIAW post! I mostly stopped because 1) it’s hard to remember to take pictures all day and 2) I didn’t really love the idea of people comparing what they ate to what others ate. But WIAW was started in the spirit of sharing meal ideas, so today I want to share my meal planning prep for this week!

If you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about, as well as all the other bloggers who participate!

Interesting Uses For Essential Oils


October 7, 2014 by Katie

I’ve mentioned before that I am a DoTerra Independent Consultant, but a lot of people don’t understand the point of essential oils. Why would you buy them? What would you use them for?

It’s surprising just how many uses there are for many of the oils, many of which I need to learn and use mine for! DoTerra offers a starter kit for people who are unfamiliar with oils and want to see what they’re all about. The kit includes Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint. On their site they’ve included an article with 100 Uses For The Intro Kit, so today I thought I’d share some of my favorites from the list that I either love, or I thought sounded interesting!

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…

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…

Thursday Thoughts


September 25, 2014 by Katie

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!


September 23, 2014 by Katie

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…
