Meanwhile, On Kate's Instagram...

While I still love to delve into topics here on the blog, I also do a lot of "microblogging" on social media. I have the most followers on Twitter, but I'm finding almost zero interaction there lately (is it just me?) so I post a lot to Facebook and Instagram, where my followers seem much more supportive and "like-happy".
I realized, though, that readers who aren't on Instagram are missing out on some of my meaningful moments, so I thought I'd provide some highlights here - just from posts I've shared so far in 2017.
I microblog about...
Decor and Organization
Art idea: a framed family recipe This one is my late Grandma Leahy's, in her handwriting, with a sheet of scrapbook paper for a mat in a dollar store frame. A photo posted by Kate Winn (@katethismomloves) on Jan 29, 2017 at 1:33pm PST

I'm often asked for my organizational secrets, and here's an important one: one load of laundry per day. Then you never get overwhelmed or have to stress about needing something that's not clean and dry. Related: train your kids to fold and properly put away their laundry at the earliest age possible. Next, accept the theory that if they wear slightly wrinkled clothes, or the same thing every third day because it's fresh out of the laundry, it is not a negative reflection on your parenting. Do you have a simple tip to keep your household organized?

Cleaned out the dining room hutch and decided it was time to start using the "good" cutlery every day, instead of hiding it away in a box for special occasions. Why not? Please note: it has been made very clear to children and husband that these forks and spoons are NOT for school lunches! A photo posted by Kate Winn (@katethismomloves) on Jan 22, 2017 at 8:00am PST

Kindergarten Fun
I love when I don't have to reinvent the wheel! Great activities, including lots of open-ended ones, to support play-based learning in #kindergarten. Another worthwhile purchase from @mrsalbanesesclass's Teachers Pay Teachers store. A photo posted by Kate Winn (@katethismomloves) on Jan 8, 2017 at 7:32am PST

Time for literacy fun! A photo posted by Kate Winn (@katethismomloves) on Jan 19, 2017 at 10:22am PST

Fashion and Beauty
Everyone's allowed to be frivolous once in a while, right? After Claire Foy from @thecrownnetflix gave me #lipenvy, I bought this Pillow Plump from @soapandglory at @shoppersdrugmartofficial. First, when they say "you'll notice a bit of a buzz", they're not kidding. My lips were vibrating for minutes after application. However, there was a noticeable plumping effect. It was more a lightly padded bra, not a breast augmentation (to be clear, I'm still talking about lips, just trying to make a comparison) but for $25 I was happy with the purchase. Nice texture, scent and taste too. Still planning to look for the @buxomcosmetics plumper as recommended by @moplnd! A photo posted by Kate Winn (@katethismomloves) on Jan 15, 2017 at 6:24am PST

I'm back on @thesocialctv on Thursday chatting about report cards, interviews and other mid-year topics! Thanks to @lechateau at Lansdowne Place for hooking me up with a great outfit! #fashion #style #outfit #tvlife A photo posted by Kate Winn (@katethismomloves) on Feb 4, 2017 at 10:31am PST

What the girls and I are having for lunch today. I know what you're thinking: "How does she do it all???" A photo posted by Kate Winn (@katethismomloves) on Jan 22, 2017 at 9:43am PST

Waited for a discount and just ordered my 2016 blog book from Blog2Print for 25% off. Love having hard copies...just in case! I always put a photo of the girls from that year on the front, and a blogging highlight on the back. 7 years of blogging...can you believe it?

If you're on Instagram, pop over and say hi - I love to follow real, interactive people!
