Mommy’s First Vlog

So.  You are about to see me talking and sharing in what is called a VLOG.  This is my first try at it.  Alexis over at Depressions and Confessions issued the challenge to try to capture a day in the life.

She vlogs regularly and makes it look fun and easy.

It is not.

My vlog is terribly edited.  It is a tad too long.  And?  It starts off with me in the morning with no make-up.

So it’s not a Hollywood production, but you do get to see my boys at the end and there are glimpses of my classroom and a few of the ridiculous faces I pull when I am talking.

And…here it is.


Now that you’ve seen it…you should head over to Alexis’s place…she has a linky up and you can see some more Day in the Life stuff.  Probably ALL more exciting than mine.

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. How GD adorable are you?! I think I may have a girl crush on you my dear!!

  2. That was really neat to see a day in your life!! I promised Alexis that I would do one too. It's coming… eventually. <3

  3. That was so fun. Love getting to actually "SEE" you. Your hair thing is so cute btw. And you get up WAY too early. Especially loved "the end" at the end. Haha.

  11. Sarah @ Ordinary Days says

    I can't believe I'm the first to say this, but are you sure you're not related to Heather Spohr? You guys look, act and sound a lot alike!

  15. Grace@ Arms Wide Open says

    love this! so fun to see your facial expressions 🙂 this would be so fun to do sometime.

  16. Awww. You are so CUTE!! And you're voice is almost exactly what I imagined. I thought about doing it, but…I hate the sound of my own voice. Plus, a day in my life is pretty boring. :-/

  17. awesome! it was really cool seeing your classroom and where you work. it looks very neat and organized in there. you have a nice voice, and how cute are your husband's dimples? 🙂

    2. In over 5 years of blogging, I've never been brave enough to do a vlog. Good for you.

    3. You are adorable, and are one of the most hard workers I know.
