Typical Katie Travels: 30A (South Walton)

April 27, 2018

Does anyone else need vacation from vacation? I can’t believe it’s Friday and we have been home for five days! Where did the week go? As much as I wish I was on a beach right now, it’s a beautiful day in Atlanta, so I can’t be too mad.…

April 5, 2018

In case you’re new here, I will give a quick intro. Exactly a year ago, my family and I moved to Napa, California from Atlanta, Georgia. Here is the post that talks about why we moved, and here is the post that talks about why we came home after only nine months on the West Coast.…

Sentiments Of A Work-From-Home-Mom With Two Under Three

March 26, 2018

I had a recent realization. I found myself saying a lot “Three kids is so hard!” It just kind of seemed like the statement to make. I’m drained, stressed, and running on empty. At some point, though, I had a moment where I was like- KATIE. This is not about three kids. You are not incapable of raising three humans… this is 1000% about the ages of the younger two.…

Jekyll Island Girls Trip

Did you catch my Instagram stories over this last weekend? Charlie and I went to Jekyll Island with Chanel from Chanel Moving Forward and her daughter for a girls weekend. We thought it would be a great place to take the girls for a couple days of “Mommy and Me” time. Jekyll Island is off the coast of Brunswick, GA and right about five hours from our home in the Atlanta area.…

Hey, hey friends! I am SO excited to announce a new series here at Typical Katie. My umbrella mission of the blog has always been to bring you along on the ride as I experience life.

So, here we go!…

March 7, 2018
what to pack in a diaper bag

This post is sponsored by Boudreaux’s Butt Paste®. #ad With two babies still in diapers and only twenty-three months apart, a shared diaper bag became something that I had to figure out quickly. It takes tremendous skill and talent to pack a diaper bag, you guys. There’s a fine line between WAY too much stuff and being caught with not enough supplies in a baby crisis. A couple of years ago, I talked about my diaper bag for just Charlie…

The Unexpected Place I Found Body Positivity

March 5, 2018

I have spent a lot all of my life being very “body conscious”. Not because I ever struggled with a healthy weight. (I was actually a twig as a child and mostly looked like a ten year old boy until I was an adult.) It’s because as a kid, it seems like the adults around me were always talking diets and weight loss. I assumed from an early age that this was somehow important, but not sure why. It seems…

If you have been around me for any significant amount of time lately, you might have heard me talk about the mixed emotions that come when your LAST-born is whipping through the milestones. Watching the youngest and last baby seem to fly through the first year is both beautiful and bittersweet.…

The Morning My Life Changed (And A Progress Update)

February 19, 2018

I can’t believe it’s been four weeks, you guys. Four weeks ago, enough was enough. It wasn’t New Years Day. It wasn’t even a Monday. (It was actually a random Tuesday, because I refuse to conform). I woke up and decided to change my lifestyle. I decided to put myself first. (GASP.) Let’s rewind a bit.…

Things To Do In Atlanta With Kids: Georgia Aquarium

February 14, 2018

Thank you to the Georgia Aquarium for sponsoring this post. I’m not going to lie, finding things to do in Atlanta with kids was not always a pleasant chore for our family. Since Charlie was born, we would have grand ideas about outings with our three little ones and hopes for a picturesque day out in Atlanta, and were often met with disappointment. It can be tricky to find things that are appealing to Grayson AND Charlie, with their age…

How I’m Reclaiming My Mornings (And My Sanity)

February 5, 2018

Thank you McCormick for sponsoring this post. Visit your local Wal-Mart to pick up McCormick Good Morning Breakfast for your family! Oh, mornings. (Loud sigh.) The discussion of morning time is one that comes with many eye rolls. I actually love the morning. I have been a morning person for as long as I can remember. For one thing, I hate the feeling that I am missing something by sleeping. Besides that, I truly am naturally a different person in…
