Books Read 2014


January 13, 2015 by Katie

If you’ve read this blog for a while then you probably know that I’m a liiiittle bit of a reader. I’ve always been a serious bookworm, ever since I was little (Boxcar Children and Babysitters Club, anyone?) but this habit has continued through college, law school and “adulthood.” Now that I’m not in school and I have more free time, I get to read even MORE books! Who doesn’t love disappearing into another world for a little while?

Anyway, I thought I would list the books that I’ve read this year. Each one has a link to either my own book review, or just straight to its Goodreads page if I didn’t write one. Enjoy!

Thursday Thoughts


January 8, 2015 by Katie

I feel like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve done a Thursday Thoughts! That’s what happens when all the holidays fall on a Thursday! Since I’m sure you’re DYING to know what’s on my mind, I’ll get right to it!

1. I got this book from “Molly” (aka my sister-in-law) for Christmas and I’m aaaaalmost done! It’s a little over 500 pages so it’s been taking a while, but it is SO good and interesting!

Brussel Sprout Spaghetti Squash Casserole


January 7, 2015 by Katie

It’s no secret that I’ve become sliiiiightly obsessed with making spaghetti squash casseroles for meals during the week. It has so many variations and I love that I can get tons of veggies in such a delicious meal. This week I changed it up a little bit and it’s by far my favorite version of the casserole, so I wanted to share the recipe with you this week!

I’m linking up to Peas and Crayons today for her What I Ate Wednesday. If you’re new to WIAW, head on over to her blog and check it out!

Nothing and Everything to Look Forward To


January 6, 2015 by Katie

You know what’s interesting about 2015? I don’t have any big life events coming up as I normally would: I’m not looking for a job, I’m not graduating, turning an exciting age, I don’t have any big trips planned, I’m not getting married or having a baby. It’s just… blank.

And you know what? I’m pretty pumped. I’ve never had a blank year before. It’s a clean slate to turn into whatever I want. And who knows, maybe something unexpected will happen, and maybe it won’t. But either way, I’m looking forward to 2015. I feel good about this upcoming year. I feel like I’ve grown so much in the past year (or 27…) and this next year will be my favorite one yet.

A Day In The Life – 21 Day Fix


December 31, 2014 by Katie

So I haven’t done a What I Ate Wednesday post in a looooong time, but today I wanted to give you an idea of what it was like to follow the 21 Day Fix workout and meal plan. When I first heard about the plan I was completely put off: those tiny containers!? Are they kidding me!? When I’m told exactly what I can and can’t do, I fall into a spiral of anxiety; I don’t like being boxed in. But then I did a Challenge Group where several other women, as well as friends were doing the Fix and loved it. So I did my research, I read as much as I could about it, I did some prep and tried to follow the guidelines on my own for a couple weeks and then I bit the bullet and bought the 21 Day Fix Challenge pack.

So for today’s WIAW, I’m going to share one day of eating from the Fix! It’s important to note that during this fix I was avoiding grains because my doctor told me to do so. All food groups are allowed on the Fix, just in moderation: portion size is the key!

Seeking Acceptance


December 30, 2014 by Katie

The other day I was at brunch with my family and there was a little boy running around in a Batman costume. My mom made a comment along the lines of “wouldn’t it be nice to be like him and wear whatever you want without caring what other people thought?”

At what point in our lives do we become aware of not only how we look, but how other people view us based on how we look? When did we start judging other people on their looks? It happens to everyone at some point in our childhood, but wouldn’t it be a great world if we knew no matter what we looked like, we were loved and accepted?
