katiereyesheadshot150KATIE  {katiedid_what}

Katie Reyes lives in Sacramento, California with her husband and two cats, a.k.a. her children. They are expecting their first baby in April 2014 and could not be more excited about it. She is a full-time blogger and runs the lifestyle and fashion website Katie Did What. She earned her Bachelors degree in French from California State University, Sacramento and studied abroad in Paris during her junior year. She is therefore highly influenced by all things French and is always in search for that joie de vivre.

Sassy Fact: I used to hate cats. HATE them. Well, mostly I was afraid of them and their claws and thought they were mean. But then I met my husband, and he had two cats, and now they are my children and I love them more than most things.

Katie Kavulla

KATIE {@being_katie}
Having just made the move from big city life to settle down in the town where she and her husband both grew up, Katie Kavulla is a mom of three who strives to slow life down a bit… as impossible as that is with three kids under the age of 10. A blogger turned writer, Katie has spent the past few years combining the things that she loves into a career, with a focus on helping other moms tell their story, because Katie truly believes that every mom has one to tell.

When it comes to fashion, Katie puts her past retail experience to work as a contributor to Savvy Sassy Moms. Most recently with Anthropologie, she has been in and out of women’s retail fashion for the past 16 years. If you twist her arm, she’ll even tell you about the time (pre-baby body, mind you!) that she worked with Abercrombie and Fitch. Katie’s love for shoes runs deep, even though she spends most of her time running around in a stinky old pair of classic black Converse.

You can also find Katie on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

Sassy Fact: While Katie’s orthopedic doctor has practically made her swear on her first born child that she will only wear shoes that are supportive, she can’t stop wearing favorite pair of shoes, a super-sassy pair of gold clogs. As far as Katie’s concerned, fashion comes first, knee-health comes second.

Sassy Fact: I’m a restaurant menu junkie. Before I go out to eat at a restaurant of any kind I HAVE to read the menu online and know exactly what I’m ordering beforehand. If I don’t do this, I freak out. I also have a ridiculously insane amount of restaurant menus I’ve collected throughout the years. Food obsessed?…just a little bit.
