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


April 3, 2014 by Katie

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!

WIAW–Italian Chicken Sausage Soup


March 26, 2014 by Katie

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…

Finding My Priorities


March 25, 2014 by Katie

Over the past couple of weeks, and looking at what I have on my plate in the upcoming weeks, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed. With the next two weekends out of town and events almost every night, on top of many more things and people I wish I had time for, I feel like there needs to be another 4 hours or so to every day.

In other words: I’ve been spreading myself thin. I’ve been saying yes to everything and even seeking out new opportunities when in reality, I just don’t have the time.

Let go.

I realize many of you reading have probably been dealing with these feelings for years, but since I’d always operated on a student schedule, I always managed to find time for the things I want to do. On top of that, I’ve never had so many opportunities…

A Windy Weekend & Hidden: Book Review


March 24, 2014 by Katie

Well hey there!

I hope you all had a good weekend – I certainly did! This weekend was the Junior League of Chicago’s Windy City Nights Gala, which was held at the top of the Willis (Sears) Tower! I was half excited about the event because I wanted to go up there and see the view, and half (okay, more than half) because I got to hang out with some of my new friends again!

Thursday Thoughts


March 20, 2014 by Katie

1. Can we just stop time for a minute and all take a breather? HOW IS IT ALMOST APRIL!??? Part of me is excited because I love spring/summer but the other part of me hates that… oh wait, STILL don’t have a real job. I’m really hoping God has a great reason for this one…

2. Whenever I sit down to work at my computer I always end up taking off all my jewelry, it just gets in the way! Does anyone else do this?..
