Let’s Chat!

This blog has been a loooooooong time coming. I started another blog a couple years ago but as we all know life happens. I’m so excited to launch Chit Chat With Katie with a new design and focus!
*You’ll notice there are some old blog posts that focus on deployment and military relationships. I’m happy to report that my boyfriend is now safe back at home but since those were some of my most popular posts and I’m still in a military relationship, I decided to move over the content to this new blog. If you’re also in a military relationship or getting ready for a deployment, you can always find those posts by searching the category but if you’re here for lifestyle, business, DIY and more – don’t worry! I’ve got you covered too and most of the content on this blog won’t be military specific. With that being said, if you’re a new reader, allow me to introduce myself!

a little bit about me:

My name is Katie B and I currently live in San Diego, CA.

I have a degree from the University of Kentucky (go CATS!!!) in Integrated Strategic Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations (& a dance minor, but that’s a story for a different day).

I have over 10 years of marketing experience in a variety of fields including non-profits, sports leagues, government agencies, fashion and entertainment companies, restaurant and hospitality groups, and celebrity brands.

I’ve been known (on one than more occasion) to stay up all night finishing up the perfect crafting project.

I never have less than 77 things going on at a time.

I believe in egg whites for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and all the pizza I can eat for dinner.

If there’s a kitchen gadget that was sold on TV in the last ten years, I own it.

I never miss an occasion to throw a dinner party complete with personalized thanks for coming gifts, a photo station, and of course delicious treats.

I own multiple Christmas trees and I will not apologize.

I’m trying to be the best daughter, sister, employee, dog-mom, girlfriend, friend, and woman that I can be every single day.


This blog is your one stop shop for all things:

  • health & wellness
  • beauty
  • navigating around the kitchen
  • relationships
  • DIY
  • entertaining
  • business advice
  • you name it! (seriously – let me know in the comments if there’s something you want to see!)

You can expect unfiltered, authentic, and honest conversations, advice, and reviews centered on the topics that matter to you (& me!)

I created this blog for the girls who wake up early to get a head start at work while counting down the minutes to happy hour, for the girls who love a good spin class but then immediately head to the pizza place down the street, for the girls spending their Saturday nights out on the town before heading to church and yoga on Sunday.
This blog is for the girl who celebrates Friday nights and a kick-ass presentation in the office on Monday morning!

Life is confusing, complicated, and you’ll never have it all figured out. Let’s embrace the ride, support each other, continue to grow and have some fun doing it!
