Getting to Know Me: Part 1

Hi everyone!  I thought I'd introduce myself a little more to some of my new readers (and old) in a little get-to-know-me series. I always love reading about other bloggers and seeing who's behind the blog.  I swear sometimes I feel some of us could be best friends, is that weird?!  Here's a few true to life things about me, in no particular order:

1.  I have a twin sister.  We're literally #twinning in real life.  We've always had a pretty good relationship growing up, but now that we're both moms she's really turned into my best friend.  Our babies are growing up together (they're 8 weeks apart) and we see each other almost everyday.

2.  I'm obsessed with soup.  I love it.  Every kind, flavor, style, you name it.  In fact, due to this rainy day, there's a similar version of this soup simmering away in the crockpot.  Fact: My husband hates soup.  Hates, hates, hates it.  I'm calling it an "Italian Stew" tonight.  Sorry hubby.  Olivia loves soup too, so therefore, 2 against 1.  We win.  

3.  I love picnics.  Anywhere, anytime...ok, no.  I hate when it's cold and rainy so let's leave those times out.  My favorite picnic blanket is this one, from Ikea.  

4.  When Olivia was born, I became a stay at home mom.  I was an elementary teacher and I hope to go back to teaching when she's a little older. Sometimes my days and long and my nights are short.  I love being a stay at home mom and certainly feel blessed to be able to stay home with Olivia.  That being said, some days are no joke.  It's the hardest thing I've ever done and I completely understand why my mom used to say things like, "I need my own island" while we were growing up.  Totally get it now mom, totally get it.  This is how I normally accomplish making dinner.

5.  A true test to my sanity is a rainy day while my hubby is gone until late at night and I'm trapped home with the baby...and the dog.  This is Harper.  Harper likes to eat Little People toys, frozen teething rings, breakfast covered bibs, sandwiches off the kitchen counter, and favorite stuffed animals...just to name a few.  Olivia has mastered telling her "no,no,no" and by the end of the day I can't wait for bedtime.  For Olivia as well, not just the dog.  She's a good dog (when?!) and her and Olivia are best buds.  

There you have it, five facts about me.  I would love to get to know you as well!  Feel free to follow me on Instagram @kaitlynbird if you'd like to see more of my daily life.  I'd love to hear some fun facts about you!
