While In San Diego....

...I sneaked in some time to photograph this awesome family. They were SO fun! Together we perfected "the fake laugh" (you know, when you throw your head back and do "it's soooooo fun having my picture taken" laugh) Who knew kids love it too?

And you'll never guess what I brought back for the kids.

Out Of Office

This is seems like not enough, but thank you guys!

Blake and I have gone on a mini vacation this week, and when the plane took off I was totally bawling.

40% of it was leaving my babies for a week

40% was all the thoughtful emails and comments I had gotten all day long at the airport

20% might have been that I had slept three hours the night before (reference: my freaky blog header I made at 5 am. I'VE HAD THREE MOUNTAIN DEWS ALREADY! WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'M SCREAMING?)

My skin cancer surgery is February 2nd, where they going to find out the extent of the cancer spread. I won't know much about it until then.

Thank you again for your emails. I might just be bawling again and can't blame a lack of sleep.

This is my new mantra for February 2nd: CANCER CAN SUCK IT!

(Oooooh, I just watched LOST! Stay tuned for my summary. It's back and you LOVE it!)

Proof I Have Nothing To Blog About.

"Moody Period Romance Kate" Oh Mr Darcy, why won't you love me? Also might have a large cookie stuck in her cheek.


"Mystery Science Theatre 3000 Kate" Tell me those Power Rangers don't look like the floating heads on that show. I went all optical illusion on your behind.


"Godzilla Kate"


"Die muffin. DIE!"

Oh look! Happy, pretty pictures!

Hello? Baby toes?


You can totally see my in his eyes. Counts as a self portrait.



Another girl named Kate. I love how she's holding her grandma's hand. I guess amazing eyes are just standard issue on Kates.




Look at the force behind that kiss!


I love this job!

The "C" Word

Last month I found out I have skin cancer.

Dude, that sucks.

Yep, that's all I've got. Dude, that sucks.

I've thought a lot about putting it on the blog. This is a place for happy, smiling pictures and the occasional mocking of Rachael Ray. Not cancer, right?

But I thought about you, Friendternets. And how maybe you'll be a little more likely to not get that "healthy glow" (which, let's face it, I never had) or put on your sunscreen. Maybe after reading this you'll look a little closer at that weird freckle/mole you have. And just get it checked out. NOW.


...dude, that totally sucks.

Crockpot Chicken Chile


Let's put this right out there. Crockpot food is maybe not the most attractive. Or the easiest to photograph. But it's delicious and unlike your holiday cooking, does not require much effort.

Crockpot Chicken Chile

3-5 chicken breasts
1/2 c. salsa
1 Tb Cumin
1/2 c. brown sugar
4 oz can diced green chiles
6 oz sprite (1/2 can)

Combine all ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Remove the chicken and shred (or like me, stick two forks in your crockpot and swing them widly around = shredding) Return the chicken to crockpot and cook 1 more hour (without lid) Add cornstarch (mixed with cold water) to thicken juices. I usually add three spoonfuls of cornstarch with three spoonfuls of water.

My family is all about this chicken right now. We've used it in a salad (add lettuce, cheese, black beans and tortilla strips) but also as tacos with soft flour tortillas or with nachos. It. is. awesome.
