weekly recap no. 2

Happy Thursday, y’all! I know so many of you are now off of work/school… can we just take a second to soak in how fabulous of a feeling that is?!

In case you missed it, today I’m sharing my second weekly recap video! This one covers the week of December 11-15, and as usual, touches on my highs and lows, favorite songs, etc. (For a beautiful video performance of my favorite song from this week, click here!)

I posted this to Youtube on Monday morning, so make sure you’re subscribed to my channel so that you never miss a video!

As always, I continue to be blown away by the responses y’all leave. Thank you for giving me the chance to get to know you! This is just the beginning, and I can’t wait to see where it goes!

Today, I’m scaling back on work to spend time with friends and family. I have to admit… I have felt so drained this past week! Definitely ready for a fresh start come New Years. :) My family and I are planning to decorate a gingerbread house today (got the cutest one from Target) and then go see The Greatest Showman. There are so many great movies out right now! Needless to say, I can’t wait.

Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!

    Yay Kate! Love these!!! My super high this week. I just finished my first semester as a middle school fashion/culinary teacher at a low-income school. It has been incredibly hard, probably the most challenging thing I’ve ever had to do in life but I made it! I had my kids make Emoji pillows for their final exams and they loveddd them! And now I get to enjoy two full weeks off for Christmas break and I am SO excited. My low this week, I got really bummed about my blog. It’s just not growing the way I want it to and putting a ton of time and effort into it, so in that sense it’s super frustrating. My fav verse has been Hebrews 11:11 and I have seen those numbers popping up ALL over. I know God is challenging me to keep my faith in certain areas. Glad we got to share into each others lives a bit!

      I completely feel you about the whole blog thing. I feel like my growth and statistics have been at a standstill for about a year now and it’s just so frustrating. The Instagram algorithm is really working against us.

      I just started following your blog, though, and I love it! So bright and happy :)

  3. you weekly recaps have made me so happy! I have followed you for SO long and getting to hear all about your life and nail colors and songs is so fun! I love this idea and Its one I hope you get to continue! I am also for sure alittle jealous of your life getting to travel and blog and instagram! I have been working none stop as the holidays are our busiest times at Disney and I thought my new role in the vacation club would help it be alittle calmer this year but I sadly was wrong! It has been so much fun getting to work with everyone but I really would love to get more time to go on adventures and add more to my blog i have just started! I do have a question how did you start? I remember you saying it was for a class but how were you able to grow your fan base and really get to write what you love? Thank you so much for sharing your life and inspiring me to start my blog!
