24 Years Young.

Tomorrow is my 24th birthday! To celebrate, my husband is taking me out to a delicious restaurant known for it’s amazing desserts here in Portland, Papa Hadyn. I am so excited! He was also very excited to give me my gift and gave it to me early…. he heard no complaints from me! ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

He got me the Kate Spade Gramercy Grand in Gold! I have adored this watch for about a year now and was sooooo excited when he handed me that perfect little box! I told him repeatedly that this was my first “real” watch and I couldn’t be more pleased!ย 






I am now looking forward to the rest of my birthday weekend in style!ย Sister and her family, as well as my parents will be down for a day of shopping and eating delicious food!ย 


Happy birthday to one special boy!

Today was my nephew Kingston’s 3rd birthday! It is so hard to believe 3 years have gone by! Words cannot describe just how much I love this boy and I cannot wait to watch him grow up in the years to come! Here is a collection of ย some of my favorite pictures (not in any particular order) of the Kingst man… birthday party post to come! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy birthday big boy! Auntie loves you so much!

Happy Birthday McKenna!

Today is Tristan’s little cousin McKenna’s 7th birthday! Yesterday I went to her party and had so much fun with the little girls. We made crafts and talked a lot about McKenna’s first love… Justin Bieber.

What’s this?

OMG! It’s a Justin Bieber concert ticket!

Happy birthday to of the most sassy, sweet, unique 7 year old girls I know! I know she’ll have a blast at her Justin Bieber concert tonight!

Kathryn Spa-day.

Sorry for the delay in posts guys… (guys meaning the two of you who still read this blog). As some of you know, last week I started graduate school and things have been real people!! It’s been super fun- but I definitely have been so crazy busy. My goal for this blog while I’m in school is to post at least once a week. MAYBE twice… ugh, I know!

Anyway, recently I turned 23! Woo hoo! Can you believe? This lady is getting old… I can see the wrinkles already! Anyway… I have an obsession with bags… and my dear sweet boyfriend indulges this obsession on various occasions. Anyone remember Mr. Vuitton? Or my Chanei? Side note… I realize that I take pictures a lot on my bed spread… honestly guys… it’s the best light in the house. Don’t hate me! Anyway, for my birthday I received a Kate Spade New Bond Street Florence bag in the color Coral! I am so excited guys! I seriously can’t contain myself. Lets take a look shall we??

ย There she is.. in all her glory. Tristan calls her Kathryn Spa-day- hence the title.

This bag is a conversation starter! Everyday I’ve worn it I’ve seriously have had at least one person comment on it… “Love your bag, girl!”

The inside is BEAUTIFUL!

Now I thought I would include a little, “what’s in my bag” action. Since I’ve been in school, I haven’t been able to carry this bag as much. I take a backpack to school and just swap my wallet from purse to backpack when I need it. Basically, I use this bag on weekends right now as well as when we hit up the grocery store after work. SO- because of that… it’s not very full. But check it out anyway dudes!

From left to right:

1. DKNY wallet (I also just got her for my birthday and love her already!)

2. 5 gum in swerve.

3. Loreal’s The Balm in 318 Heavenly Berry- not to toot my own horn, but this color was made for me!

4. My favorite pen.

5. iPhone 4.

So there you have it! That’s what’s in my bag!

Happy Birthday to Mr. Kingston Wayne!!

This past weekend was my adorable nephew’s first birthday!!

So to celebrate we all headed down to Corvallis, Oregon to attend the WSU vs. OSU football game.

I was soooo happy to be rooting for the cougs! Go WSU! ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, I didn’t take any photos, but luckily my sister did! Here they are:

Me and Sir Kingston in his birthday hat! (ignore those messy eyebrows of mine)

The birthday boy in the hat I got him.

Me and Kingsty taking a stroll.

Check out Tristan’s face! Haha so cute, and Kingston just looks mad. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, how was your weekend?

JHall turns 21!

I just wanna say:

To my best friend in the world Jessica! She is so beautiful inside and out, and I’m always so thankful to have her in my life! ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, our birthdays are 9 days apart and I believe we are soul mates.

I can’t wait to celebrate her day with her this weekend!

James, JHall, Me.

JHall and I.

JHall, on our senior trip, we rented a convertible.

JHall and Zac.

I love you!! ๐Ÿ™‚
