My Professional Background - Once upon a time, I wanted to be a motivational speaker. Actually, I was a professional motivational speaker for about 5 years.:

This week’s How-to Tuesday is a wrap-up of my time with both the Obamas and the Romneys where I counseled them on how to woo mom voters in America.

And as we head into tonight’s Presidential debate, I’ll watch with bated breath to make sure both candidates took my advice to heart.

And if Mitt Romney even thinks about mentioning Costco, so help me…

Honey, call off the exorcism, I figured it out.

Whew! Thank goodness he’s not watching horror movies without my permission. Yet another reason Elmo creeps me out.

(If you’re confused you may want to read this post.)

It’s been such an exciting week over here in my little “corner” of the web. I went to a few parties, even.

(Cough) Twitter parties. (Cough)

Okay, I lied. I didn’t even go to those. I’m still not 100% sure what they even are to be honest.

But, I thought it would be fun to share my week in pictures. Because, believe it or not, someone as asocial as me still does have an opportunity or two to find some fun things to photograph.

Such as this…

Sometimes I think I’m still on the fence about this whole idea of homeschooling our kids (now 2 1/2 and 1). I KNOW it’s what I want to do, I just don’t know if I’m cut out for it.

Here’s why:

Update:  We have a winner, ladies and gentlemen!

“Katie:  We need to get together and catch up. There are coffeeshops in Korea… interested??!”

Shoot me a message, Katie, and we’ll pop your prize in the mail. Thanks for playing!


To celebrate the absolute absurdity that has surrounded us all this election year, I decided to join in the nonsense and host a Presidential Giveaway.

So, without further adieu, I present to you the 44th President of the United States — with green hair:

Well, friends, last week you got to see my interview with the Obama family. And what a successful(ish) session that was. We still have some things to work on, but I feel the President and First Lady both made some real progress in our time together.

Since I am both fair AND balanced, I offered my political counseling services to the other two viable candidates — both Mitt Romney and Roseanne Barr.

I think our 2-year-old has been watching horror movies without our knowledge.

(How? Isn’t he supervised?)

Well, you know how kids will pick up an iPad or iPhone and flip over to the Netflix app, and it’s about 45 minutes before you realize what they’re watching?

No…no. I don’t either.

As you may have already gathered, my husband is in the military — the Air Force to be exact. But we currently live on an Army Post in Leavenworth, Kansas.

Yup. THAT Leavenworth.

I knew nothing about Leavenworth when we moved here except that they had some prisons — both a federal one and the military one on post. Also, I knew that we were probably as far away from a beach as you can get in the good ‘ole U.S. of A. Unless you enjoy waterless beaches, which I do not. And after his time in the Middle East, neither does my husband.

I have learned in the course of nearly one year here that Leavenworth is actually a lovely town with awesome antique stores, friendly people, a dentist’s office I want to visit daily, and at least one extra-attentive Parking Enforcement Officer.

I’m not bitter…

I know I’ve mentioned before that we party like rock stars on our weekly date night, but it never ceases to amaze me how relaxing a trip to Chipotle, Target, Barnes & Noble, or the proctologist can be when no children are FREAKING OUT in your ear because they ran out of milk.

(Did she just say proctologist?)
