Friend Of The Week – Katie at Preppy Empty Nester

Katie - Preppy Empty Nester Home

Welcome to Friendship Friday – a surefire way to stay connected to your blogging buddies around the globe, even in the midst of social distancing! How are you doing this week? Could you use a little entertainment to get your mind out of the house this weekend?

Katie - Preppy Empty Nester

If so, you are going to enjoy meeting Katie and learning what life looks like for the Preppy Empty Nester – a humorous lifestyle blogger who enjoys sharing tales of her family (which includes two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili) as well as providing behind the scenes peeks at the never-ending renovation of her antique home in Massachusetts!

Here are a few reasons why you will want to visit Katie’s blog this week:

Katie - Coronavirus Words

Did you intend to pick a Word of the Year for 2020 but never got around to it or – in light of current world events, are you in need of a new word for the current season? Katie proves it’s never too late to pick a word as she asks, Can You Spell Discombobulated?

Katie - Master Bedroom Suite

Katie is the proud owner of a stunning home that she has been busy renovating ever since her husband was transferred from Texas to Massachusetts. It’s the kind of home that most of us dream about – you will definitely want to Take The Home Tourto get a first-hand look at the incredible renovation she’s done on the property.

Katie - Chili Dog Decorates

I fell in love with the calming blues and spacious decor in Katie’s master bedroom. But, I was equally enamored with Chili’s quarters and her homey, down-to-earth decorating style. Chili obviously has an artistic streak that’s dying to get out. (Katie, might I advise you to lock up your paint?)

Katie - Latest Wardrobe Edition

For more laughs and reflections, Katie writes about how she’s doing with her New Year’s resolutions, how she’s upgrading her wardrobe (she’s modeling her latest wardrobe addition in the photo), and how she’s surviving in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Quietude and Survival? I think you’ll relate!

Making new friends is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Be sure to visit Katie this week, explore the creative ideas she’s shared on her blog, and congratulate her for being our Friend Of The Week at Friendship Friday at Create With Joy?
