My name is Mary but everyone has called me Katie since birth. I was once a wild party girl and I am now a military/ law enforcement wife and a stay at home mother to a beautiful daughter.
I grew up in a tiny town in southern Arizona. Moved from West Virginia at a young age and noone agreed with my country thinking.. (although now its cool to be country!) I moved to Flagstaff after graduation and did not succeed in school. I was that small town upbeat girl in a whole new world and it…Continue

I am so happy you are home from work. Before you walk through the threshold here are some guidelines of what NOT to ask:
1. Wow, what happened here? Life, Life happened here. The minions came home from school, and the living room, kitchen, playroom, and all other applicable areas exploded. If I wanted to follow them around with a basket, vacuum, and trash can, I would. I’m doing my best dude.
2. Whats for dinner? Food, food that…Continue

I have really been in a funk lately. My mind has been a whirlwind of emotions & thoughts. Ever since my youngest, my baby, turned 4years old I have been giving myself a hard time. I feel this pressure, entirely from myself, but pressure no less, to work. Not that I don’t work now, in fact I feel like this is the hardest I have ever worked in my life! My husband and I are a bit old school. He works outside the home. I do all the household chores, all things clothes and food…Continue

What I absolutely adore most about this experience is how many people said they were going to pay it forward. And the fact that when I logged onto Facebook that night a friend had said that someone paid for her coffee and she…Continue

I used to make a lot of money, though I didn't realize it at the time. That 20/20 hindsight can really burn some days. I was doing really well for myself and for my family financially, but I wasn't happy. I wasn't in love with my job anymore, and I tried to compensate by spending the money I was making. Writing at Starbucks, yoga, the gym, spas, masks, and spoiling my family. When we found out we were expecting another little one, I decided I needed to make a change. I know…
Waxing, just like tweezing, can hurt. However, the pain usually comes with the strips and not due to removal of individual hairs. The waxing process is better than hair remover gels or creams because they don’t have unwanted smell. Also, waxing doesn’t give you nasty red rashes. The bikini line as well as the legs isn’t left with cuts and nicks, unlike the aftermath of shaving. Over-the-counter waxes include paraffin and beeswax and they come in containers which can be heated easily. You can…Continue

Before I joined Scentsy I was struggling working 2 jobs and practically homeless. After some mis-communication over parking tickets my husband and I decided to work on our marriage. One of the things I made clear was that I wanted to be independent and continue to work from home, but also make money from home. The kids were in daycare and my…Continue

Trying to plan a birthday party with 3 kids running around is rough. Today, I am sharing my planning methods that help me to be stress free and enjoy the planning process!
My daughter is turning 5 this December. I plan birthday parties months ahead of time because I get everything done without worrying about spending too much all at once, not finding certain decorations or anything I need at our local stores, making sure I order what I need with enough time to get here and send back…Continue

When I was little, I had a stay-at-home Mom. She was home to give me a snack after school, took care of me when I was sick and spent hours devoting time to the PTA and the community to make a better life for us. (Thanks, Mom!) My Dad worked long hours, spent time working on the yard on the weekends and drove us to family functions on the weekends. (Thanks, Dad!)…

It's no secret that parenting is hands-down one of THE hardest jobs on the planet. There are days when you love it and days when you want to turn in your notice and walk right out the door. The pay is…Continue

Since my son started school I have been so curious to find out what he's up to every day. Of course I ask him, “What did you do today?” but there are no prizes for guessing his answer. I have tried the trick of arriving early and casually hanging around outside while I innocently glance inside the classroom. Murphy's Law: I could say every child in the class except mine. Asking the teachers doesn't provide much insight either. Yes they answer me but it is vague. I want details, I want the…Continue

Moms, we know the value of our role within our families. Although some days I find myself drifting to sleep feeling guilty about my growing disdain for housework, about losing my patience with the kids, about not being very proficient in the kitchen. Children, especially little ones don’t really have any idea about what moms do all day. And, for the most part they probably don’t really care. Which is okay. They are little. Moms are sort of like magic elves that work out of…Continue

Some of my favorite television shows are those set in the workplace. I love getting a sneak peek into worlds I haven’t experienced. And, since I haven’t worked regularly in an office for many years, I’m fascinated by the dynamics between the characters. Now, I know this is fiction. A lawyer or editor on a TV show is going to be exaggerated, dramatized, too snarky or silly or just plain scary (like Glenn Close’s character on Damage). We are looking for entertainment…Continue

No not me. This chick, Amy Glass.
This article popped up on my newsfeed this morning and as Luke was tossing his bananas and cereal onto the dogs back I thought, what a lovely morning read, lets see what she has to say...
One paragraph in and I was both giggling to myself at the stupidity of it all and just letting her words fuel my hate fire for her…Continue

Yesterday afternoon when my son got into the car, he was asking his sister if she ever put salt on ice. I didn’t realize that he was talking about putting the salt and ice combination on his skin. I just assumed that his science teacher was teaching them about temperature changes using salt and ice. Then this afternoon, I noticed a huge red spot…Continue
