Kara 🎉Fabulistas Blog o' Fun  Jamming fun into mom life since 2011. 😎 Making a fool of yourself, OTT Mom fashion & read-a-thons, highly encouraged. 🎉👌🏼

Because those pants aren't going to split themselves. 😂🍦💃😎

OMG, you guys. I was going to post a cute photo of my fave dress but I CAN’T GET IT ZIPPED. 😂 and also, OH YEAH! I’m high-fiving myself over here because normally this would freak me out and I’d go all nutty and start running like a crazy lady and obsessing over my gelato intake but not this time. I mean, I’ve been on vacation and I can’t button my top button? I AM DOING SOMETHING RIGHT. 😂👊🏼😎#pizza #pasta #gelato #redwine #elasticatedpantsforever

Buon Giorno! How are you guys doing?!?!? I’ve been feeling super-guilty I haven’t posted all Summer, but then I had this thought - omg, Kara, What Would You Tell A Friend? #wwytaf👌🏼 Well, I’d probably say: WOMAN, CHILL OUT. You just staged and sold your house, moved and settled your family across country, bought a new house in one week, took two little kids on vacation abroad (jet lag, anyone?) and did it all with a very minimal amount of crying and mind-losing (there’s definitely been some, but not as much as you’d think 😂) and a fair amount of memory-making and happiness. GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK.
And then I’d be all: You know, gorgeous lady, you’re right. I rock and to celebrate I’m going to have this lovely bottle of Italian wine, although, let’s be real, I’ll probably only have a glass because even though, yes, I am pretty much a real life superhero, even I can’t defeat the kryptonite of an early morning with kids and too much wine the night before. Bottoms up!

I mean what an awesome friend, right? So, much better than the old gal who was nagging and moaning about all that wasn’t happening instead of enjoying what’s going on right in front of her face. (Um, ITALY, anyone?!?) Think I’ll keep her. 😍

Is there anything going on with you that would change if you asked WWYTAF? I feel like we should all adopt this as our new mantra because kind friends (especially the ones that love in your brain) are EVERYTHING. ❤️

It’s just non-stop glamour around here, you guys. 😎 #movinglifeisthemostglamorouslife

There is nothing I like better than a dramatic entrance so since I’ve been gone for a bit I thought I would show up, shower 😳(wait, what?), throw on some virtual Madonna, and come to you from, bum, bum, bum, French Laundry! Omg, what, right?!? Bam! And she’s back. 😂 Love you guys. Oh, and also don’t wear purple underwear with a white dress because, you know, YOU CAN SEE IT. Not that I’m telling you this for any reason. Seriously. Just helpful advice for the future. 😂🙄#keepitclassykara

Omg, you guys, I am FEELING ALL THE FEELS. We have finally made what feels like an epic decision and are moving back to Denver! Ahhhhhh! Wah!! Yippee! Boooo!! 😭😳😬😱😍I am over the moon because we’ll be close to our family and best friends and will have help and our kids will grow up with family around and they can all ski and mountain bike while I complain about the cold. But we’re also leaving friends that are like family and amazing weather and big opportunities and the place we started and grew our family and did I mention how much I hate the cold?!? 🙄 We’ve been so lucky to have landed in a place that immediately felt like home where we could grow into the people we wanted to be, but now it feels time to go back to the place we have never stopped calling home. I’m feeling so mixed up about it all, but underneath I know it’s absolutely the right decision, even though I’m terrified of the amount of Patagonia in my near future. 😜 No, seriously. I’m really worried about it. Send @shopbando ASAP. 😂

Happy Easter from our sugar high family to yours. 🐣🐰🍬🍭 (PS - You should probably go buy this dress immediately @targetstyle because it goes with everything and looks smashing - can’t tell I ate pie and cake and cream puffs! - and it’s all you’ll ever see me in again.😂) Happpppyyy Easssster!!!

I’m a big believer in birthdays because, duh, we’re all awesome and that should be CELEBRATED. Also, friends bringing you homemade pie, birthday sashes and crowns, and presents isn’t all bad either. 😂💖🎊🎁 Here’s to 43, baby!! 💃🏻

Let's do this thing. 👊🏼😂💃🏻👊🏼 ⠀

(I have a new site launching this week - ACK! What are you working on you’re excited about?!?)⠀

Because, pinky swear, mine is way worse and I’d totally invite you in (see my Story Highlights for proof 😂💃🏻👊🏼).

My shirt should say LUCKIEST PERSON EVER because I am. You guys are seriously the best. I get so nervous about posting about vulnerable things and then you all rise up and remind me that we are never alone (even if our brain is being a stinker and telling us we are), but there’s support and love right there if we’re brave enough to reach out. So, THANK YOU. It made a huge difference. ❤️ In other news, who knew these green shoes would be the most versatile in my closet? I was looking for a nod to the leprechauns and THERE THEY WERE. 😂🍀🍀🍀Happy Sunday, you guys, and ❤️💖❤️💖.

I think of my depression as a cliff that I walk along side. Most of the time it’s at a safe distance - I’m on the trail next to it, aware it’s there, but not overly concerned. Occasionally I’ll go and frolic in the meadow and the idea it even exists feels foreign and ridiculous to me. And then, seemingly without warning, I’ll be at the edge, frantically grabbing at everything I can to hold me up, keep me steady, don’t let me fall too far. For the past few months, I’ve been having all night dance parties in the meadow and, if I’m honest, I got cavalier. I stopped doing the things I know keep me healthy because, even though my mouth was saying this is something I will always carry with me and need to maintain, I was secretly pretty sure I’d beaten it. ⠀⠀
Um, I haven’t. ⠀⠀
It’s been a long two weeks of rawness, shutting down, and getting through, which is not how I want to be living. I’ve been here many times before though and, even though I always fear I’ve fallen in too deep this time and this is my new normal, it always lifts and I find my way back out and before you know it, I’m all “Making peanut butter sandwiches was exhausting?!? I can make 47 right now with my eyes closed while doing the can-can!” ⠀⠀
On the plus side, I know now, unequivocally, what I’ve been doing to stay healthy is actually working, which feels highly motivating and makes me less devastated about my significant pizza losses. Because, trust me, my feelings towards pizza are deep and real, but not worth a trip to the bottom. ⠀⠀
You guys, regardless of where you are - firmly on the path, partying in the meadow, looking up at us from the bottom - know it’s okay and you’re okay and this too shall pass. ❤️❤️❤️And, future Kara, I know the pizza looks good but, um, 👆🏼.
