Welcome to my little corner of the interwebs. I'm Kate -- wife, mom, and unofficial Starbucks Top Fan from the great fly-flyover state of South Dakota, with my heart and soul rooted in the mountains of Montana. I own an almost embarrassing number of crewneck sweatshirts, but love a good excuse to get dressed up. I speak fluent sarcasm, have very little filter, and am most likely to be listening to a super murdery podcast while grocery shopping.
I believe Friends was the most culturally relevant show to ever hit TV (seriously, best bromance of all time: Joey and Chandler. Could I be wearing any more clothes?), that coffee is in fact a meal, and Backstreet Boys is and will always be superior to N'Sync. It's a hill I'm willing to die on.
I think Taco John's is too spicy without extra sour cream, the 4th of July is one of the best holidays of the year, second only to Christmas. and that finding an M&M without a peanut in a bag full of peanut M&Ms is like winning the lottery.
It’s a tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme: sorority girl meets fraternity dude at a party … and forget they’ve already met until fraternity dude adds sorority girl on Facebook accidentally. Fast forward 17 years and those crazy college sweethearts added two humans (and two rescue mutts) to their little family. Cory, fraternity dude turned husband and father of the year, works in finance and spends his time annoying his wife by hunting ALWAYS. The two tiny humans you see are Amari (12 year old dancing queen whose dream is to open her own coffee shop to feed her mother's addiction or be a professional dancer) and Beckham (the soccer loving second grader who wants to become a paleontologist, first studying dinos at whichever college his sister goes to). As a family, we aspire to spend as much time in the mountains as possible and miiiight even attempt camping someday. It’s far from perfect, but it’s perfect for us.
