• Just look at that smiiiiiiile! I can't handle this baby. I just can't. 🥰 Given that we are spending more time at home right now, getting fresh air is so important! We’re spending more time as a family in nature and taking walks around the neighborhood. 🌿 We are all practicing social distancing now, but I still wanted to share a special first for Ollie. A few weeks ago, we took him on a little day date to one of our favorite small towns. We walked the main street, looked in cute antique shops, grabbed some coffee and Ollie got to try his first taste(s) of gelato! 😍 Needless to say, he’s a big fan. 😜 Thanks to @maxicosiusa the walk was smooth (for me) and super comfy (for the baby). 🙌🏻 I’m so excited to announce that we are @maxicosiusa ambassadors this year! I’ll be sharing more of their great products throughout the year, starting with the Lila stroller- which also turns into a double (which we have!) and we love it! The smooth ride, comfy seat, awesome snack tray and large under storage basket make this stroller a win in my book! 💗 #ad #wecarrythefuture #lilastroller #maxicosi
  • That arm pose though. 😂😍 I don’t know about you, but my Quarantine Uniform is basically leggings and a comfy sweatshirt, all day every day. But today I decided to mix things up a bit with this new Spring dress and did my hair and makeup, and I have to say, it was quite the mood lifter! 🌸 I still fully support leggings on most days, but every once in a while, it’s a nice change to fancy things up a little (still comfy, of course). So, my tip if you’re feeling stuck in a rut (like I was), is to simply get ready for the day. It really helped with my overall mood. 💕 And of course physical health is important, but so is mental health, especially at a time like this. Do what you need to make sure you’re feeling good- in all aspects. 🙌🏻 My dress (and lots of others) 30% off and linked in stories!  http://liketk.it/2LZIl #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Let’s stay home. ✨ In case you need some fun ideas for things to do with your kids, I’ve got a post up on the blog today (katiedidwhat.com) with some simple activities we’ve been doing, that were a hit! I know we could all use all the help we can get. 😅💗 Playdoh boxes, sensory bins, mosaic art, kinetic sand, watercolor and more! Link in my bio. And leave a comment with any activities that have been a hit with your kids! Always looking for more ideas! 💕
  • Needed to document our first full week of “quarantine.” We dipped our toes into homeschooling (and liked it!), we spent more time together than ever, we made art and went on walkabouts, we explored our own yard, we planted flowers and played board games, we read more books and had more dance parties, we got a trampoline (#necessary) and watched pure joy on our kid’s faces. ✨ We all connected on a deeper level. In a way, this time is a huge blessing: the reminder to slow down, truly “be” with the ones we love the most, and never take life for granted. It’s just so precious. I keep fluctuating between these huge feelings of gratitude to my core, and crippling sadness. There is so much I miss, as I know we all do, but so much we used to miss that we don’t now. 💗 I’m just trying to navigate this strange time and see the good in these days. There’s comfort in knowing none of us are alone in this. 👯‍♀️ http://liketk.it/2LS63 #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • The world is weird and crazy right now. As of tonight, here in California we officially have a “stay at home” order, meaning quarantine for all! (Exceptions for necessities and nature- we fully plan on getting outside as much as we can! Just, away from others ☺️) BUT! This means even more time spent at home, no play dates, no coffee dates, no DATE dates. This is so hard, but so important. So here we stay. 💗Kind of the best timing for one of my favorite retailers to put basically their entire site on SALE, 25% off! 😱 I’m looking at you, @nordstrom! 🙌🏻 Bringing a little joy and surprise to this uncertain time. And I’m here for it. It’s the little things, guys. I’ve shared my picks in stories, if you’re interested, and they’re all saved in the “Nordstrom” highlight bubble! Birkenstocks, Kid’s Natives (our favorite summer shoes), Hunter boots, Barefoot Dreams, Tory Burch and so much more are all included! So to my fellow stress-reducing-online-shopping friends. I see you. I’m with you. 👯‍♀️ outfit linked: http://liketk.it/2LMRW #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Planting some flowers this afternoon with my girl. ✨💜 Purple flowers- her favorite color. These days are long, but full of so much goodness. I’m seeing God everywhere. In her little hands digging in the dirt. In the excitement on her face. In the tiny purple flowers peeking out of their pots. In the cool breeze and goosebump arms. I’m seeing Him everywhere. I hope you are too.

  • If I have to be stuck at home with anyone, I’m glad it’s this group of crazies. 💕 How are we all doing?! You guys surviving? The official day 1 of quarantine/kids at home is in the books. 🙌🏻 We followed our schedule pretty well (I made it printable, too- it’s on the blog! Katiedidwhat.com) and it actually went pretty smoothly and was so helpful! Sophie and Sam even had quiet time together in Sophie’s closet (😂 gotta check stories for that one). All in all, today was a good one. ✨ Swipe over- shame that the girls in this family have no personality. 😜  http://liketk.it/2LEY3 #liketkit @liketoknow.it
