I’m heading away for the weekend, going to celebrate my 5th wedding anniversary. My husband planned it all and he keeps talking about walking in the woods....Uhhh okay? He said we’re going to go sit and sing kumbaya. Well I really don’t know what’s going on, but I hope y’all enjoy your weekend, I’m just happy @x_vanegas_x is watching my babies.

So there’s this great brunch place called @ncounteraz . They just opened another location in Scottsdale and my husband and I love it! We’re big time foodies and this place is amazing. I had their “Nattie Bomb” 🥪 which is like a grilled cheese with chicken and bacon on 1/2 wheat bread with apple! YUM 😋 I also tried their Frozen Hot Chocolate which tastes exactly like it sounds. I wish they had one of these in the West Valley so I could hit it up all the time. 😋
♥️February is the month that love just seems to blossom.

What’s your favorite things about February?♥️
As the sun shined down and a cool breeze flowed in through the open door to my dressing room I felt completely content. In a matter of moments I was going to walk down the aisle and say “I DO” forever to my best friend. 5 years have passed so quickly! I don’t remember any thoughts or feelings of doubt on my wedding day. My husband has turned out to be the best example of a father I’ve ever seen. He is truly my BETTER half! I’m so happy I married him. Even his mom told me “women everywhere are looking for a guy like him” you better appreciate what you have.....and Lord! Was she right!  I don’t  deserve a man like him, but God is gracious and still provided me a husband that compliments my personality in every way. He is the leader of our home and I trust him wholeheartedly ♥️ #5thweddinganniversary #5yearstogether #marriedlife #happywife #katherinewandell #womanbydesign
The creative process is not like a situation where you get struck by a single lightning bolt. You have ongoing discoveries, and there's ongoing creative revelations. Yes, it's really helpful to be marching toward a specific destination, but, along the way, you must allow yourself room for your ideas to blossom, take root, and grow. ~ Carlton Cuse

Growing up I watched every Disney movie that came out. I knew every song and could quote major scenes from them. You could say I was a fan, but now that I’ve grown up and had my own children, I’ve decided that they won’t watch 90% of the movies I did. Why? Well psalms 101:3 says “I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes”. .👀.
.
For about 6 months I kept thinking about the contents of the movies in our home. We don’t watch horror or thrillers, but the “innocent” Disney movies kept coming to my mind. Did the witchcraft, dark magic, fairies and spells that almost every Disney movie has count as “wicked”? If so I needed to go through them and toss them in garbage where they belong. .
So that’s what I did. This video is a clip from my most recent YouTube vid. I talk about what I look for in each movie and show you exactly what got the boot. It isn’t just Disney movies I went through, I tossed a lot of our “grown up” films too. If you are interested in evaluating your own collection of movies I have a blog post with tips on how to do it and a helpful website that breaks down movies by amount of violent, sexual, perverse and questionable scenes. Link to the video and post are in my bio.

If my coffee looked this good every morning, maybe I’d get more done 😂

What is your favorite thing to do in the morning that gets you pumped up to work?
If you know me well, you know I LOVE FOOD!!! 🥐🥓🍔🍩 I pray before every meal because I’m so thankful for the abundance of flavors God has given us. One of my favorite new places to eat is Kneaders. I love the assortment of baked goods 🍪🍰🥧 and handcrafted things there are to buy in the shop. Their breakfast is amazing, but this time I tried their lunch and I ordered a chicken and artichoke panini on focaccia bread. It had such an amazing flavor combination, definitely my new favorite! You guys need to give them a try!

Anyone can do what you do. The reason you get recognized for it, is because even though anyone CAN do it, NOT many have.

♥️Happy Valentine’s Day♥️ I’m spending today snuggling with my little ones, earlier this week we did some painting. If you swipe right you’ll see it 👋🏼
. I hope you all have a wonderful day and you reflect on God’s abundant love for you! Today may be looked upon as a day for “lovers” which should equal spouses, but you wouldn’t have your spouse if God didn’t bless you with them. So praise God he loves us and blessed us with someone to go through this life with. ♥️ Shout out to my hubs, who is too smart to have an Instagram account, so I can’t tag him. But he’s A M A Z I N G! 😍

Have you ever gone through a trial or difficulty, but didn’t understand why? Lately I’ve been dealing with some mixed emotions that I can’t fully talk about. But these verses have been helping me remember to wait on God because he has a plan! .
“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” Psalms 27:14 .
And this one reminds me that his thoughts are different than mine. No matter what I think, my ways and timing aren’t God’s. He has a purpose and a reason for the trial and difficult things we go through. He is God, whether we’re on the mountain top 🌄 or in the valley.

Isaiah 55:8-9 - For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
