Thursday Thoughts


April 10, 2014 by Katie

1. Tonight my committee on the Junior League is hosting a “House Walk” to raise money for some improvements to the house. I’ve been stationed in the basement… which means I’ll be standing in a creepy cold (semi finished) basement all evening. Wish me luck.

2. When I was home I found this growth chart that I’d totally forgotten about in my closet. I seriously can’t believe I was ever that short!

3. I bought a Groupon for a month of unlimited yoga and finally started it last night. I went to a class with a friend of mine and was glad I did…

WIAW–Breakfasts Lately


April 9, 2014 by Katie

Happy Wednesday!

For today’s WIAW post, I thought I’d share some of the breakfasts that I’ve been making over the past couple of weeks to bring in to work with me. I get up early to head to the gym, come home and shower, get ready and by then I really just don’t have time to sit down and eat. I’ve found that bringing my breakfast to work makes things a lot easier and a few other people on my floor do the same!

Link Love


April 4, 2014 by Katie

It’s another Friday and this week I came across a lot of blog posts that I loved, so I figured it was time for another round of link love! I’ve linked up to Clare’s Five Things Friday, although I have a lot more than five things… Maybe 5 x2 or x3? Haha

Dear Body, This Is Why I Love You

Thursday Thoughts

Hello, hello, hello! Time for another week of Thursday Thoughts!

1. I slept through my alarm yesterday morning. It was lovely.

2. I’ve noticed that on days that I don’t go to the gym, I end up running late. I think it’s because I assume I have more time than I do, when in reality I just slept during the time I would normally be at the gym.

WIAW–Palmetto 200 Food


April 2, 2014 by Katie

Happy Wednesday!

This has been a loooong week for me, even though it’s only Wednesday! I arrived in Chicago at 7:30am Monday morning and headed straight to work, then my small group met that evening and I didn’t get to bed until about 10:30pm (which is very late for me…). I finally made it to the grocery store last night to grab a few essentials, but I didn’t get too much since I’m heading out of town again straight from work Friday night! I’m already exhausted just thinking about it, but I’m going to Kansas City and always love a good trip home.

For today’s What I Ate Wednesday, I wanted to share a lot of the food we ate during the Palmetto 200 Relay. How do you pack and figure out meals when you’re up and running for 32 hours? Well here’s what we did!

Palmetto 200–Race Recap


April 1, 2014 by Katie

Well hey there!

Yes, I am still alive! I had such a great time running the Palmetto 200 this weekend and I’m excited to share our experience with you all! Our race took about 31.5 hours, so I won’t be recapping every entertaining moment, but I’ll try to get through the gist of it.

I arrived in Charleston around lunchtime on Thursday and Taylor, our team captain, picked me up from the airport. We went to get team 1′s van (team 2, my team, just rode in an SUV), ate lunch, grabbed Amanda from the airport and then met up with everyone to drive to Columbia where the race started! That evening we just had time to grab dinner and make some signs before heading to bed!

Halfway through the week, woooohooo! And guess what?! I leave for CHARLESTON tomorrow!!! So excited to head back to SC, have a great time running the Palmetto 200, and hopefully get a couple hours of sleep..?


Anyhoo, for this week’s WIAW I have another new recipe for you! IF you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about and check out the other participating bloggers.

Peas and Crayons

I’ve been having a fun time just throwing together things in the crock pot that I think would make a good soup. It’s pretty simple…
