Hi and welcome to Confidently Katie. I’m Katie and this my family
Confidently Katie is lifestyle and mom blog authored by me. I a mom to a toddler. I have a full time job besides momming and wife-ing, which if you’re a parent you know that sometimes feels like multiple full time jobs. I spend whatever is left of my energy trying to figure out a way to make it socially acceptable to eat tacos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
I live in Salt Lake City in our first home that we bought in 2018. I’m maried to a Corey who loves puns and How I Met Your Mother as much as I do and loves me for all my little quirks.
Here you can expect to read about a few things
My Misadventures in Motherhood
I never expected to be a mom so soon in my life. I remember staring down at the third or fourth positive pregnancy test thinking…how am I going to make this one work out? Wouldn’t you know it, a few years a later and I have a perfect little happy toddler who is bossing us around and showing off her independence on a daily basis. Here you’ll find stories about our fun adventures, advice I have found helpful, things I have learned through experience (aka the hard way), and lots of photos of my cute family.
We haven’t exactly done things in a tradition fashion. Corey and I had Clara well before we got engaged. She was almost 18 months when he finally proposed. Now that we’ve made it legal (I even got around to changing my last name about 5 months after the wedding) you’ll get to read about how Corey and I keep our relationship rock-solid after throwing a baby into the equation so early in our courtship (oops), and how we parent as a team day in and day out.
Is home making even a thing anymore? Anyway, you might read about that here. I’ll be completely honest here, I’m not always the greatest at keeping our home…kept? but I love to cook, make us lunches, and find new projects to make our little rental more homey every day.
Style & Fashion
Just kidding. You will probably never actually read anything about style or fashion here. Unless the incredible functionality of a fanny pack and diaper bag backpack count as style.
Me writing about fitness is basically just a bi-product of becoming a mom. I used to be a size 00 in jeans and now I fit a little snug in an 8. You’ll find posts about my fitness routine, foods, I eat, and how I work my fitness into my mom, pro, and wife life
Last but not least…The name sake of this blog. Confidence. I don’t always have it, but I wish I did. The tag line for this blog is “Going Confidently in Life & Motherhood” and that is truly what I aim for. Every day I work towards being more surefooted when it comes to parenting, more certain about my opinions, and more ready to face the world every single day when I get out of bed.
