Are you someone that can watch a movie more than once? Micah is NOT. There are a select few movies that he doesn’t mind watching again (Star Wars, for instance) but overall, once and he’s good.
Myself? I can watch certain movies multiple times and not get sick of them. And not just once or twice but sometimes dozens of times depending on the movie.
Confession time: I saw Titanic SEVEN times in the theater when it came out. Yes, seven. Micah loves to tease me about that whenever he gets the chance. I was twelve or thirteen and thought Leo was just beautiful, what can I say. Twenty one hours of my life in the span of a couple months dedicated to uncomfortable theater chairs showed my dedication to that movie… yeah, the movie. Ha!
Are you a quoter? I’m pretty positive that isn’t a word, ha! But do you have quotes you enjoy using? Or just enjoy to read even if you don’t remember them off the top of your head? I have a board on Pinterest just for quotes that I find moving, inspiring, funny, or simply truthful.
Here are my favorites along with a link (if available) to the source. Enjoy!

I love getting to know the bloggers I follow just a little better because it helps me relate on a more personal level with them. Hearing about their days, their joys, their struggles… it really helps build a community. So with that I thought a list of 101 things I love would be a great way to give all of you a little window into me. And since my blog is all about finding joy this is just a list full of things that almost always bring me joy!
Fair warning: This is kind of a brain dump post. As in anything and everything that I love could pop into my head at any moment and get added to the list. No specific order. Welcome to the insanity that is my mind.

- Jesus (bet you didn’t see that one coming!)
- My Micah-pants (or that one)
- My kiddos (I know this one is a total surprise too!)
Okay, okay, you want to read about loves that you may not know… on to the rest of the list!
As a mom of five kids between ages one and seven my “me-time” is obviously quite limited. Heck, any mom of any kids usually has a limited amount of “me-time.” In order to maintain any semblance of sanity and “Katie” as a person I have a few activities I enjoy that don’t take much time, money, or effort to enjoy.
I like setting goals but I’ve noticed that if I’m not tracking them in some way I tend to make excuses about why they aren’t getting done. I have a chalkboard in my kitchen I use to make a daily to-do list (although it’s rare for everything to get done). When I was really focused …
How can I narrow down a list of my favorite bloggers so I don’t overwhelm people? Yikes. I’m going to try! Money Saving MomI swear everyone I know already knows about her but just in case you don’t! Crystal Paine is such a fabulous person. She is down to earth, sweet, and sincere in everything …
Once upon a time there was a guy that loved Transformers. This guy also loved a gal that he had asked to be his wife. This gal was on a girls’ weekend with her friends doing wedding planning stuff when she wanted to buy him a present.
She wandered into a LEGO store because she saw a set that looked like a brick-built Transformer. So she bought it.
This ended the couples dark ages.
Did you know it was Read Across America Day this week? I’m a couple days late to the party (oops!) but I still wanted to share our favorite children’s books! These are books that our kids love to read or listen to and that we don’t mind reading over and over again!
