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.
Happy 20th (!!!!) birthday to the sweet soul that will always be just about this old in my mind! 😭 Thank you for being everything you are- a real life angel on earth that I am so blessed to be able to wrap my arms around. 🤗Your first two decades were a joy to witness (!!) and I cannot wait to see what God does through you in the next.. it’s going to be epic. 🥰 Happy happy birthday, my girl. You are so very loved.. 🎉🥳
First chili cookoff w/ my crew and y’all my love for feeding hungry bellies finally paid off!!! 🏆🏆 🤣 Ego aside (🤪) @jordivilasuso and I had the most beautiful day w/ some of his @youngandrestlesscbs fam supporting the amazing work @takingthereinsla does for underserved girls in high risk environments in LA - ‘Inspiring girl power through horse power.’ ☺️ And just watching Riley & Evie run around this 100 yr old barn, brushing horses and bobbing for apples (thus the apple in the trophy 🤣), was priceless. Horse and Harvest Fall Festival - you have a special place in our hearts and we can’t wait to see you next yr! And all my chili lovers- you better bet I’m going to add the recipe to That Cozy Life.. keep an eye out! 🍂😉🍁 #thatcozylife
Alright so half of my face is cut off but y’all we are all smiling!!!! (Almost- I’m going to pretend Soph is smiling under that paci 😜) but I LOVE these beautiful faces and their hearts. All new ep of @justbtweenus is up- double date (family style) w/ Jordi’s Y&R co-star @mel_ordway and her handsome hubby @jmichaelgaston .. We talk Young & the Restless, marriage, love scenes (obvi 🤪), adoption, birth stories, the possibility of baby #3.. all with cute little kiddo voices in the background. 😚 It is SO fun and I KNOW you will love them and laugh your way through the ep with us. Check it! ❤️ #justbetweenus
Can I get an AMEN?! 🙌🏻 I am alllll about the hustle (!!), but I can’t help but notice lately that it’s so easy to let it steal the joy in the ‘now.’ So here’s to a weekend full of looking at everything we do have. So so much. Hope it’s a beautiful one, my friends. ✨🥂😚 #justbetweenus #thatcozylife
‘’As a mother, there will be many times in your life that you hug your child knowing that you need that hug more than they do.” [Because their squeezes are straight from heaven and they somewhat make up for the fact that ‘moms don’t get sick days’ ..🤪] I added that last part because #merightnow 🤒😆😷
Sometimes you just gotta laugh .. and this week’s first ‘Just Us’ ep of JBU is one of those times 🤣 #justbetweenus- it is about as true to life as it could ever be because y’all we had to re-record the beginning last night because in our first attempt yesterday morning, the mics were going in and out as we drank our coffee and we sounded SOOO tired that we were falling asleep just listening to it!! 🙈🤣 #PARENTINGtho If you can relate, check it out and laugh with us. And if you can’t but still wanna hear this handsome guy talk about marriage and work life and how I’m the cooler parent (I think he said that 🤪), link is in bio. 😍 Happy Tuesday my friends! #sevenblissfulyears
You will graduate.
You will get a job.
You will find love.
You have an entire life!
Things take time.
Just enjoy where you are now.
This weeks episode was such a reminder of why we started @justbtweenus .. I may have checked off the things on this ‘list’ that I used to be so worried about, BUT I could add another hundred things to my ‘new list.’
So, yes- I can look back at my 20s now and spend a good chunk of our hour long episode this week encouraging people that are currently living those things (which MAN do I cherish the opportunity!! 😭🙏🏻), but I look at my life today and it’s so clear that those boxes I’m trying to check might be a little different, but the feelings and the fears are still very much the same.
So right now, I’m reminding myself and reminding you (if you need it 😉) to just RELAX. And in the words of my super smart super handsome hubby when I was mid-anxiety attack today- ‘Listen, if this thing doesn’t work out, it will be okay. It’s okay! And the thing that’s supposed to work out will. Just relax.’ Which is exactly why he’s coming on next weeks ep. 😜😍 #workinprogress #justbetweenus
How we feel about the #FirstDayofFall .. 🍁😝🙌🏻 Finally! And you know who reminded me that today is the first day of fall? My ‘taking after her mama all things cozy lovin’ Riley. She also mentioned it’s her favorite bc her birthday is in the fall, but whatevs. 🤣 #thatcozylife
Insta vs reality with these peanuts.. they don’t have different personalities AT ALL. 🤣 Are you more Riley or Evie?! I have an idea where they both get it from.. @jordivilasuso 👿; me 😇 (🤣) Hope you all had a beautiful, relaxing weekend (!!) and are all geared up for the week ahead. Lets make it a good one! 🤗😘 #instavsreality #thatcozylife
