Princess Maggie Announcement + Our Weekend

I have a big announcement to share today.

Remember when WE raised $1k for Princess Maggie? Well, I have been meaning to give you all an update on her for a couple weeks now, but am glad I didn't because it just so happens that a couple days ago I received a message via Facebook from Maggie's mom. I don't think there is a better way to share it other than coming directly from the family, so I will let her give you the update:


Those of you who donated, sent cards, and prayed for Princess Maggie helped to make this happen!! God is good. How about that to cheer up your Monday and to start the week of Thanksgiving off on the right foot? 

 Billy // Maggie // Me

In other, far less significant news...this weekend was awesome. 

Billy and I tried a new, upscale Mexican restaurant called Bakersfield {you cannot go wrong with all different types of tacos and margaritas in mason jars}. I got my hair done. Rocky got pampered at the groomer's. Billy and I declared Saturday morning "Katie and Billy's National-Sleep-In-Day-And Lay-Around-And Do-Nothing-Until 1pm!"...he even made me breakfast in bed. :) It was my niece Mara's 9th birthday party where we got to eat our 2nd Thanksgiving meal so far (yum!). And we saw Catching Fire! If you haven't seen it, GO! We loved it and liked it better than the first.

To make things even better, did you see that my favorite Tone It Up girls now have a SHOW that is starting in January on Bravo?! Pinch me. It's going to be a good week.

Glad you all are enjoying my gift guides so far! I am loving your feedback on them, too. More coming soon!
