Happy New Year!  Hard to believe that another year has begun already.  I thought I'd give you a little "Katie Lately" via Jenn's InstaLately linkup.

1 and 2-- Last week, Donny and I met up with some long-time friends of mine, including Sarah and Rebecca.  Sarah's husband Joe, Rebecca, and I have known each other for 15ish years now!  God could not have taken our lives down more different paths, but it's always good to catch up with people "who knew you when."  This year, we all brought new people to our reunion-- they each had new babies, and I had a new husband.  Good times with good friends.  :)

3-- The frosted cranberries I posted about last week are seriously dwindling at our house.  I'm contemplating what other items to "frost" next!

4-- One of the banes of my existence is pumping gas.  I have no idea why I am so averse to it, but I just hate having to stop and fill up.  So the other morning, I got in my car to go to work only to find that my loving husband had filled it up for me.  Love that man.  :)

5 and 6-- We spent a wonderful New Year's Eve at home in our pajamas.  We watched The Muppet Movie until it was time for the ball to drop in Times Square.  Then we toasted the new year with Cupcake prosecco out of our wedding flutes!

7-- On New Year's Day, we went to Target so I could get season 3 of Justified (of which I watched several episodes yesterday), but I quickly got sidetracked as I walked by the display of fuzzy winter goodies!  I really wanted this fuzzy hat with ears and fuzzy mittens, but alas... 

8-- I've been working on re-designing my blog for the last couple weeks (it's come VERY slowly since I had to first teach myself how to use photoshop...), but I'm so excited that it's almost done and even more proud that I did it all myself!  I hope to install it tonight or tomorrow!!!!

Oh, and feel free to follow along on Instagram!  :)


  1. Why oh why must Target do that to us? I went the day after Christmas to stock up for next year and then I had forgotten a storage box, go back the next day and found myself in aisle of stuff I didn't need again!! All in good fun :)

  2. You are just too cute with your fuzzy wear on! Our New Years was similar at home and it was wonderful.
    Thanks for linking up girlie!

  3. Oh and p.s. I would love it if my hubs could fill up my car but he doesn't even know how to drive it. Give him a hard time about it for me! I want to teach him

  4. I'm so impressed that you are teaching yourself how to do your blog design. Can't wait to see it!

  5. Just as an FYI, your blog is one of my top 3 favorites to read. :) It's just so...real? Not to mention hilarious.

    And I'm so glad you got to see Joe and Sarah! Bummed I missed your first visit to my house though. We'll have to try that again, and let Jason and Donnie meet. :)

  6. I can't wait to see your blog design! I just paid someone to start working on mine. I SO wish I could do that! I have photoshop and just have no idea how to use it. I am really creative just don't know where to start with it!!

  7. I'm so excited for justified to come back on this week!! I need some Raylon in my life :).
