About Me

My name is Katy. Kate, to my family. I grew up in Idaho and Nevada. I studied business management at Boise State University (Go Broncos!). I’m married to a super smart, stubborn & challenging but great man. We have two adorable, smart & energetic boys who keep us busy and laughing all the time. I enjoy books, movies and the outdoors. We like to go 4-wheeling and camping, river rafting, and traveling when we can but are more often at home doing laundry. I love my boys, I love my friends. I love to laugh and be silly.

I’m a feisty Aries with an Amiable/Expressive communication style, which pretty much means I’m a sensitive loud-mouth, shy at first and then talk your ear off. I love quiet time scrapbooking, reading or writing by myself, alone with all the voices in my head, just as much as I love spending time with my friends going to lunch, a movie, or drinks. I’m the kind of girl who likes Sex and the City but would NEVER buy $300 high-heel shoes. I’m way too practical (and clumsy) for that. I love chocolate and fatty creamy-cheesy pasta dishes, but am on-again/off -again doing my best to get fit and healthy. I have emotions, I say what’s on my mind and often cuss like a sailor. I work hard when I need to and enjoy slacking off when it’s an option. I think it is very important to laugh and enjoy life, be yourself, and be around people who lift you up, not tear you down.

I recently rediscovered my love of reading and writing. I hold down a corporate job 40 hours a week to pay the bills but its not my dream job – I am writing in my spare time (which is not much) and hope to publish a fictional novel someday. It’s slow going but it makes me really happy and gives me something to strive for. This is my first blog. I don’t pretend to be a professional blogger, or care too much to become one. I just like to get things out of my head sometimes. It is great therapy for me. Thanks for checking it out. I hope you see something you can relate to or makes you smile. Enjoy!
