Staying in the Know

By now, I think we have established that I am a mom with limited time, right? Well, add to that the fact that we don't have live TV in our house (well not local channels anyway), and you can see how my exposure to current events is limited.

Sure I could listen to the radio (which I do), or follow news anchors and stations on social (again, I do) but there is also another way I keep up.


Making the Change

I can't tell you how many times I have told myself, "Kati, get your shit together," in reference to my workout routine. It is hard, because I let it be. Yes, it would be easier if we had a better gym. Yes, it would be easier if I had a full weight room in my house. Yes, it would be easier if I had 2 extra hours in the day.



Honestly, I could make excuses all day long. The truth is, finding time to make it work is my only problem. I come home from work and want to spend time with my family, then I get comfortable. Well I am over my own excuses and I am tired of not being happy with what I see in the mirror (especially during the summer months).

Meet the Family: The Kid

You have met Nate and I, now it is time to meet the little one in the family. 

Leighton is our little ball of energy, and is a huge focus of our life (duh). He is now almost a year and a half and is constantly learning, moving and surprising us. 


After a long labor (see this post for details), Leighton was born on Sunday, December 13, 2015. He was 8 pounds and 21 inches long. Love at first sight, clearly. 

Meet the Family: The Dad



Hey, hey everyone. It is my turn to introduce myself and explain my role here.

This is Nate the ‘husband/dad’  and this is quite a bit outside of my comfort zone, but here we go. I was born and raised in Northeast Indiana with my older sister, younger twin brothers and parents. I love everything outdoors, fitness and sports related.



My Go-To Mom Hair

In the spirit of motherhood, let's talk mom hair. When I think of mom hair I immediately think of a short, easy to manage bob. Yeah, that isn't my hair. 

I chopped my hair off while I was pregnant, but haven't done more than a trim since. Now it is long and takes some effort to make it look decent. Don't get me wrong, I love a mom bob. I really wish I could pull it off, but if my hair is shorter than my shoulders I look 12. It is not a good look. 

So what is my mom hair look? It is an intentionally messy, half up bun. I switch it up all the time. Sometimes it is super high, sometimes low, and sometimes I work in a braid. No matter what, I make it look messy because it will end up there anyway. Might as well make it look intentional right?
