(I’m rerunning this 2012 post here in 2013, because it seems this topic is timeless. Enjoy . . . .again.) I’ve been thinking about whether or not to write this post, as I’ve found myself facing a bit of writer’s block over the last few weeks. See, here’s the thing. This is the time of […]
(So depressing that I started this post four months ago and yet it’s still relevent to my life.) I am shamelessly ripping off Jen Hatmaker’s worst mom series because imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and I love her. Plus, while she may be worst at many things, all her kids are (apparently) potty […]
Have you ever seen Pollyanna? It’s a Disney movie in which a little girl transforms her fellow townsfolk from gloomy, drab, and hopeless solely by the force of her chipper, happy disposition and her kind words. During my brooding, melancholic teen years, my mother would often use Pollyanna as her touchstone of comparison, saying things […]
I don’t homeschool. I don’t really want to. My husband is a public school music teacher, and my kids attend the school he teaches at. It is practically spitting distance away, and it’s a great school. They have great teachers. I have no ability with early elementary subjects, and buying homeschool material could literally break […]
I’m excited to announce that I’m facilitating a 7 week women’s group study this fall right here in Waxhaw. (If you aren’t in Waxhaw, I have a request at the end for you. Will you scroll down?) The name I’ve chosen for my groups is You Go Girl! Even though it is a little cheesy, […]
Despite having disappeared from my blog entirely this summer, one of my loyal readers asked if I would share her daughter’s journey in locovore eating. She undertook locovorism as a pre-requisite to her Girl Scout Gold Award project. Since I have my OWN little Brownie in the house and have attempted locovore eating myself, sharing […]
This is my son, Dylan. He just turned 6 and finished Kindergarten. Be still my Mamma heart. I could just eat those ears right up. (Don’t even talk to me about the “cake” made from Krispy Kreme donuts. It made all his dreams come true, AND, considering it took me 5 minutes to pile […]
Today, I’m really excited to be hosting a Q&A with an online AND in-real-life friend, Amy Bennett, who hosted me a few weeks back for my embarrassing Cheetos confession. She joined me and a group of other bloggers for Summer of 7 last year. Since we both live in the same area, we decided to […]
I’m re-running this post from May 31, 2012 because of all the pride kickers that I’ve published, this one kind of takes the cake. PLUS, at the end, I have a new little invitation for you. So today I start the Food challenge part of The Summer of 7. I bet you think that I […]
Imagine standing in a dusty frontier town, bustling with horse-drawn wagons. Maybe it looks like Walnut Grove, or El Paso, or an imaginary town populated by Clint Eastwood, Kevin Costner, and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. I can’t be sure exactly who lives in your town. With its clapboard walkways and swinging saloon doors, this town […]
About The Author
Hi! I'm Katrina. I'm married to an elementary school music teacher and am mom to three crazy kids. Formerly a high school teacher and missionary, I now stay home and give myself pedicures and eat bon-bons, while never avoiding sarcasm. I'm a reluctant real foodie who blogs about faith, finances, food, and family. I love Jesus, missions, hip-hop dance, gardening, country music, Henry James novels, talking too much, wearing makeup, and eating crusty bread.
