Hi, welcome to "Little House of Four." I'm Katie and I'm so glad you stopped by.
-Married to the man I used to stalk since college. Let me explain....my husband is a friend of my brother's (thank goodness for older brother's) that I fell for as soon as we met (I actually told my mom that I was going to marry him). It just so happens that he lived less than a mile away and every now and then I would drive by his house. Well, one day he caught me driving by and I was so embarrassed that I blew through the stop sign! I guess it didn't creep him out too much, since he actually did ask me to marry him and here we are eleven years later.
- A mother of 2 incredible kids. My daughter, Paige, is eight and the most talented eight year old I know. She is a lover of art and a gifted gymnast who amazes me everyday. My son, Owen, is six and is a total dare devil who loves riding his dirt bike and 4-wheeler. He does everything at full speed and definitely keeps me on my toes. He's been rushed to the hospital due to an allergic reaction, in and out of the hospital due to a severe cornea injury (he opened a cabinet door and cut his cornea 70% through) and broke his clavicle by falling out of bed (even with a railing!) Yes, I worry about him.
- A dog lover (I guess I should say cat lover too, not to offend my little furball). We have a 5 year old full bread Golden Retriever that was rescued by a friend and lovely given to us. We also have a cat, Simon who is 11 and sneaks outside any chance he gets.

Why I started Blogging:
For years, I've read blogs and tossed around the idea of starting one myself. About three years ago, I finally took the plunge and "Little House of Four" was born. My day job allows for zero creativity, so this is my space to share thrifty decorating ideas, DIY projects, organizing ideas and a bit of randomness in hopes of inspiring others.
