My Best Childhood Christmas Memory (And The Toy That Made It)

October 18, 2018

When you think of your favorite Christmas memories, what do you think of? Perhaps, you think of the fidgety nervousness on Christmas Eve when you are trying to fall asleep so Santa will come. Maybe you think of the taste of your favorite Christmas candy or the smell of your Grandparents’ house during holiday dinner. While I have more amazing holiday memories than I can count, I specifically remember a very special Christmas. To this day, I will tell anyone…

5 Practical Reasons To Use Neutral Nursery Decor

October 13, 2018

Decorating and styling my home has become my very favorite hobby. When I am stressed or need to decompress; organizing/decorating/cleaning is actually my favorite fix. Weird, huh? My friends like to laugh about the fact that most of my home decor is neutral. My husband has even said (on multiple occasions) that my house is “50 Shades of Grey”. All areas of my house are, for the most part, color neutral. It was especially important for me to use Neutral…

Fearlessly Independent: 32 Life Lessons From A 32 Year Old Life Enthusiast

October 9, 2018

I turned 32 this year. That seems weird. However, it doesn’t seem weird in the way you think it might. I don’t have a problem being in my thirties. In fact, I looked forward to it for years! So many people have told me that this decade will be one of self acceptance, stability, and introspection. So far? They were right. My twenties were a whirlwind. Life changed for me every five minutes it seemed like. I always landed on…

How To Style A Simple Fall Inspired Mantel

September 30, 2018

Y’all know I love a good mantel. In fact, I am pretty sure I have quite a few examples on Instagram if you look under the hashtag #typicalkatieathome. This year, I am lacking in the time and creative energy department, so I wanted to do something super simple for the fall season. Last year, we didn’t have a mantel- so you might remember me styling a bench, instead!…

The Importance Of Music Lessons For Children (And The Impact Music Has Had On Me)

September 26, 2018

I think I basically came out of the womb into music. My Dad was (and still is) a very talented songwriter and musician. He’s been the lead singer in quite a few successful bands. Fun fact: R.E.M. opened for his band in the 80s. True story. Needless to say, music has always been a huge part of my life. I have always been a Daddy’s Girl, wanting to emulate his talents and skills.…

I Took A Break (And You Should, Too)

September 24, 2018

I took the weekend off. That sounds like a very anticlimactic statement, but the thing is, I haven’t done that (like REALLY done that) since I started this journey as a digital entrepreneur. After three years of pretty much constant connection to my work, I felt a break was necessary. Not just any break, but a delete-all-my-apps and put-my-phone-away-for-three-days break.…

Mom Hack: Finding The Best Place For One-Stop Shopping

September 18, 2018

Thank you BJ’s Wholesale Club for sponsoring this post. If you have kids and you don’t buy in bulk, are you even momming? I kid, I kid. But, seriously- it’s Fall, which is undoubtedly our busiest time of year, and I have about a million things on my agenda on any given day. Shopping for necessities should be the last thing to cause a headache. Am I right? Not only that, but I just finished potty training Charlie, which means…

Is Early Education REALLY Important? Here’s What I Think.

September 13, 2018

Since my oldest is a third grader, I have had a few years of experience with Early Childhood Education. Actually, Grayson was in some form of formal childcare setting since he was only six months old. When Grayson was tiny, I worked full time. It wasn’t even an option to do anything else. He always did well with the structure and organized curriculum of a school setting. I truly believe it helped him to thrive. Charlie and Lincoln have been…

A Road Trip In The Pacific Northwest

August 14, 2018
Pacific Northwest Road TRip

Can we talk about manifesting things into reality for a second? I have been talking to friends and my husband lately about really wanting to see the Pacific Northwest. Specifically, I really wanted to drive up the Oregon Coast, see Portland, and then road trip up to Seattle. I was very specific about this addition to the ‘ole bucket list. You can imagine my complete disbelief and elation when I was invited to work with Mazda on a campaign that…
