I’m Kaitlin. I’m a wife, momma, actress, mashed potato obsessed (obsessed) home cook, lover of all things cozy, and I am so glad you're here.
Each of these beautiful humans along with each and every bday wish from you all made for an amazing start to 33! Thank you for all of your love, my friends.. I felt every ounce of it! Heart full. ❤️ ps- @newhopeclub same time next yr? K, perf. 😜😚 #mypeople #justbetweenus
Getting to celebrate my birthday on the heels of this little dinosaur (three days ago!) is my favorite. 😍 She came to us three days before I turned the big 3-0 and I will never celebrate today without remembering how grateful I am for her precious little life and how she changed ours. The love that surrounded her on Sunday was the icing on the cake! Some deets in my story, including the star of the day (heyyy 🦸🏼♀️), men wearing Dino costumes, the cutest attempt at blowing out birthday candles and an epic late night fam jam sesh bc why not. 🥳 #wewild #thatcozylife
TGIF and thank the lawd that I totally redeemed myself in the stage mom category by successfully giving Riley the Cindy Lou Who hairstyle of her dreams for today’s little theater performance .. 🙌🏻🤣 It’s the little things. (Making up for not knowing I was supposed to pin her wig if you missed it..🤦🏻♀️) Tell me what’s GOOD! ‘It’s Friday’ and ‘🍷’ are totally acceptable answers. 😜😚
#THREE in just 3 days.. 🥳 Her birthday requests- dinosaurs + Supergirl (unlike Riley’s ‘all things princess’ requests at her age 🤪) and I literally cannot wait to see her sweet little smile. #thatcozylife #🦖 #🦸🏼♀️
Happy 4th from our fam to yours!! 🇺🇸✨
Walking into the next chapter like.. ✨ GRACE. The character you brought to life so beautifully and effortlessly over the past 5 years. And also the way you handle your life- both personally and professionally. So.much.GRACE.
You should be so proud of how much you grew in your time on @hallmarkchannel , the parts of yourself that you gave to each and every character to give it it’s worth plus more, and the woman that you are today as you close this chapter. Still so young, but so convicted and brave, aware of your worth and willing to fight for it. You are a role model that both my sister heart and my momma heart can be so proud of.
@jordivilasuso and I know that the next chapter is going to be even more epic than the last and we literally just.cannot.wait. to see what it holds. Grateful to get to hold your hand through it all and beyond proud of you - your work and your character- always my #baby🐻 .. you are GRACE. ❤️#justbetweenus
All smiles after Riley’s first big girl drama camp performance - aka the first one where she had lines and didn’t just walk around in circles looking super lost. 🤣 She was Mal from the Descendant’s and she was hysterical and Jordi stole my title as the emo parent when he got all teary eyed, which has been the norm lately. I like it. 😝
Full deets from the little 🌟 herself (including my rookie stage mom move of not pinning her wig down.. YOU HAVE TO SWIPE FOR THE VIDEO 🤣🙈) in today’s episode of @justbtweenus .. And along the star power theme, we have pt. 2 with our girl @madilynbailey on overcoming dyslexia and growing up with 30+ foster siblings. All the inspo you didn’t know you needed.. 😉❤️#justbetweenus #weloveyall #sorryabouttheshadowsonyourfacebabe
Confetti granola bc #summer 🎉 Being in the kitchen with them is basically my favorite and recipes that let them do all the things are theirs, so this foolproof granola is our jam. Recipe (+ more of these cuties cooking) in bio! Now excuse me while I spend the rest of the summer cleaning rolled oats off the floor.. 🤪🙈💛#thatcozylife #rileyandevie #cookingwithkids
Kidney stones tho. How bout that for a sexy caption.. 🤣 I dive into the topic a bit on today’s ep of @justbtweenus and I can attest for a few things from the past few days.. 1) kidney stones can, in fact, fairly be compared to the pain of childbirth (without the contractions and the 9 months that lead up to it, which was equally confusing bc with kidney stones you don’t get the heads up 🤔) and 2) life.changes.so.quickly. (!!!)
In this instance, in a not so dramatic way, but I’d be playing it way too cool if I didn’t mention the smidge of ptsd I felt walking into that hospital last week. I’ve had what feels like a lot of strange health things over the years, but have been on a healthy streak (🙏🏻🙌🏻), so it’s always a humble reminder that you can have the best day on the planet celebrating your hubby’s bday and then all the sudden Father’s Day celebrations are ‘postponed’ and you’re looking at a week of pain, questions and leaning on family and friends to keep everything together.
Luckily it was just the stones and a kidney infection and we’ve got the most amazing village that helped keep us afloat.. counting my blessings all over again. 😭❤️ Now if you need me, I’ll be over here drinking allllll the water because apparently that’s key to making sure I never have one again? All you kidney stone experts out there - feel free to chime in! #justbetweenus
Sharing J’s birthday on my stories (bc I’m incapable of being present and being on insta .. Someone tell me how? 😬🤷🏻♀️🙈) but it was such a simple, beautiful day that I wanted to share it with anyone who loves this guy. ☺️ I have a feeling that 38 is going to be so so great ✨ Warning: singing is not my strong suit but the girls cuteness makes up for it.. 🤣 #justbetweenus
