Monday. March. McLinky. and Me.

Mmmmm well lately I have joined a lot of blog hop links to find some new blogs to read and meet some new friends!

My latest new blog read is Alex at Only Human. She did a quick intro post for anyone who had linked over from Kellys Korner, and I thought it was a great idea so allow me to introduce myself.

I’m Katelyn and I’m alllllmost 22 years old. I’m always cold, except when I’m hot. I’d probably be malnourished if it wasn't for Chick-Fil-A. I am studying Industrial Engineering and will FINALLY graduate in December. I met my fiancĂ© Daniel in Calculus class,  and it was love at first derivative (er something). He is studying Mechanical Engineering so most of our arguments involve thinking our own way is the right way…haha. But we’ve learned how to laugh about it and we have a ton of fun together! I’m learning a lot about submission though especially as I prepare to get married. (I also have a lot to learn about wedding planning, because I totally stink at it.)


I am really close to my family and my sister Zadie is my BEST friend.  My family has a cat and dog that I pretty much equate to younger brothers and sisters. We love them.





I drink at least one Diet Coke today. I love office supplies. I LOVE FOOTBALL. My TV mostly switches between HGTV, Food Network, Lifetime, and TLC. Grey’s Anatomy is about the only show I faithfully watch- but I grew up loving Friends, CSI, and ER. Right now, as I type this- “Secret Life of the American Teenager” is on because it is sick and twisted in a fun kind of way. Daniel and I sit and laugh as we watch. I’m totally into the Bachelor right now too even though I hate it…in a hate/love kind of way. I’m also the type of girl who will sit and watch any kind of educational program. “How its Made”—yes please!

Music equals Country and Christian. I usually only begin liking a pop song after everyone else hates it and is sick of hearing it.

I love taking pictures much to my family's dismay sometimes since I’m always the one saying “Stop- everyone get together so I can get a picture!” For Christmas I got a Rebel XSi and I have no idea how to use it, but I’m learning….haha

In the summer you can find me on the lake. I looove kneeboarding, wakeboarding, and skiing!

I love the Lord and I have so much to learn about life, but mostly I am learning to put my trust in Him each day. He has always been faithful.

I hope you enjoy my blog! I’m so happy March is here. Spring is around the corner and then SUMMER!!


  1. How fun! I think I will do this too because I have a handful of new followers and I love getting to know the people that I am blog friends with.

    I also love office supplies (wierd right?), HGTV, Food Network and How Its Made. I am also always the girl making people stop for the photo, we recently got a Nikon D60 and I LOVE it... although I also don't know how to use it really :)

    Marriage is such a learning process, I have been married for 4 years and I learn everyday. But with God as your focus, great marriages are SO possible. It does take effort to be a Godly wife, but it makes marriage so much easier, especially if you have a Godly husband wanting to lead your family.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I'm a high school math teacher considering going back to school for engineering. I'm a female and in my twenties. I'd love to hear your honest thoughts and opinions on industrial engineering.

    Thank you!

  3. Found your blog through Kelly's Korner! Awesome idea with an intro post, I should get one together. And love at first derivative cracked me up!

  4. Hi, I'm stopping over from Kelly's Korner. I too am engaged and graduating in December. Life is starting to get really exciting! :)

    I have a Rebel XSi... I think. I know I love it and treasure it and use it everyday. Photography is kinda my thing.

    Anyway, I will be stopping back again.

  5. Very nice!! I'm actually here from FF even though it's Wednesday. Congratulations on your recent engagement. I planned my wedding while tring to graduate too and its busy, but fun and rewarding.

    Sometimes you'll just want to elope, but you can do it. God bless!!

    I found you on FF. Follow back at

  6. Just wanted to say hi, and that I'm stopping by from Kelly's Korner! My and my boyfriend also met in a math class, although it was a Combinatorics class instead of Calculus that's almost like the same thing!
