Let Cratejoy do all the thinking for you


Tutorial for the hairstyle pictured above is coming soon!

How beautiful and fresh is this centerpiece?!

Act 2 of this podcast was so crazy! I cannot believe how long this college student was able to do what he did! I found myself laughing out loud, listen to it!

I have a pair of Ugg slippers from Justin that were a Christmas gift over 4 years ago that I love. I wear them daily! But if I was in the market for some new ones. . . these would be tempting!

A pretty blouse with tie sleeves that don’t look annoying!

I love love LOVE this open hoodie for winter. It’s so warm and cozy!

Quit paying for gel manicures when it’s easy to do yourself!

SUCH A CUTE little black dress! And a classic grey sweater.

We got a new refrigerator this week and I was unreasonably excited about it. The black fridge we had simply came with the house but the ice machine wasn’t functioning properly and the seal on the freezer was pretty weak. I’ll admit the Black Friday/cyber Monday sales sucked me in and I started browsing for a fridge. Justin and I had gotten pretty far into planning for a kitchen remodel last summer but decided to postpone for a few reasons. I sort of resolved that I would wait to get a new fridge when we redid the kitchen, but I realized that a new fridge would feel like a HUGE upgrade even if the rest of the kitchen remained the same.

Given the current kitchen lay out (which is fairly dated and inefficient) we had to choose a counter depth fridge. That limited my selection to about 4 options but I found one that I really like! It offers so much more space in the refrigerator portion because the freezer is on the bottom, and the ice maker actually WORKS! It honestly makes the whole kitchen feel brighter which is a nice extra perk!

In other news, we are heading to Wisconsin around Christmas and Justin and I both are hoping for a white Christmas!

Well it has snowed up here in Wisconsin already! We got a good dusting in Milwaukee. Just enough go to make it pretty. 🙂 And it doesn’t look like it’s gpinf to be warming up anytime soon so the snow may still be here when you and your family come up later this month. Enjoy!

Gpinf was supposed to be “going.” Haha!

Earlier this week you posted a picture of a coffee maker that you use to make lattes. Can you please tell me what brand it is?

Jasmine says · 12.09.17

I live in Wisconsin (Madison to be exact) and we barely have any snow right now. It’s so disappointing, to be honest. But we are hopeful we will have snow for Christmas.

Where in Wisconsin will you be visiting?

We have that fridge! The only thing that sucks is that is gets drip marks that will not ever ever ever come off and makes me tear up thinking about it. I hope you don’t find that happening with yours! I’ve scoured the web trying to find the magic thing to fix that…if anyone has any idea, let me know!

We just got the same fridge and I LOVE it. So much more room compared to our old fridge and I love how quiet it is.

Hi Kate,
I was just wondering what size you got in that winter open hoodie from the LOFT. I am a few weeks postpartum and usually a small but wondering if I should go with a Medium.
