I’m so glad when Daddy comes home

When I was a little girl, my dad loved it when I sang him this song: “I’m so glad when Daddy comes home, glad as I can be, Clap my hands and jump for joy, and climb upon his knee, Put my arms around his neck, hug him tight like this, Pat his cheeks and […]

From Roommate to Housewife

Before I was married, I rarely cooked.  It wasn’t that I don’t know how, it was just because I didn’t have time and my apartment’s kitchen was too small for six girls.  But now that I have the space and a little more time, plus we need to save money, I’ve started making three new […]

Mom knows best

Today while T.J. and I were at lunch, my mom called to say hi and then talked to T.J. about his birthday.  She gave him words of advice saying, number each day and be grateful for everything you have. I don’t know why, but lately I’ve been quite a pessimist.  I think it’s just because […]

It doesn’t feel like summer.

Summer usually consists of going home to Kentucky, eating an enormous amount of snow cones, vacationing in Florida, getting as tan as possible, and sleeping in.  My brother always gave me a hard time because he thought I was lazy, but I liked to call it relaxing. I believed that I deserved it since I […]

“Why did you get married now?”

At my reception, I had a lot of high school friends and other non-LDS friends/family attend.  Outside of BYU, clearly it is not normal to get married while you still are in school and are just 21 years old. So, I kept getting asked, “Why did you get married now?” Other than the fact that […]


Piano Lee Derrick

Today at work, we came across a thesis written by a man named Xylophone. Xylophone. So I clearly had to give myself an instrument name.  I chose piano.  And for my coworkers, here are yours. Eliesa: Harp Danica: Drums Hayley: Clarinet Tiffany: Piccolo Christopher: Oboe With love, Piano

I will forever and always love Martha

For the first few months when I was engaged, I felt that I should buy a bridal magazine every time I went to the store. As time went by, the pile became increasingly larger, but I started regretting buying so many magazines because they all had the same ads and information. But one magazine I […]

I’d be the hamster in the cardboard box.

This weekend, I saw Karate Kid (Which, btw I loved it and will post about it soon).  Before the movie started, a new Kia Soul hamster commercial came on.  Call me immature, call me lame, I really don’t care, but something about these dancing and ghetto hamsters is awesome.

Searching for a new ward

Now that we are married, T.J. and I have been searching, or shopping, for our new ward. Since we are students, we thought we should continue to take advantage of a student ward. This way we would make friends with other newlyweds and maybe find a group for FHE. So the first Sunday we were […]

Life as Katie Lee

So, here’s the deal.  I used to have a blog.  I was obsessed with  it, then just like most of my obsessions (e.g. Rihanna, Tuna, Buckle), it faded away.  It was replaced by a new obsession and merely forgotten. But now I’m an intern at a social media marketing company and work with wordpress everyday. […]
