Zen On

Selfishly, I loved being on call this weekend.

Bummer John had to work, but at least we were home and all together. 

I needed this time to regroup, reorganize, rest.

And, of course, PLAY.

Jesse hung in there longer than you might think.


Summer beach music always puts me in a relaxed, cool mood...
I love how music can truly affect your mood, or reflect your emotions. 

Join me for summer-in-February, and let's get our 
zen on together.

For best results, enjoy cold beverage {preferably beer}.

love, kerry

To Whom it May Concern:

It has been recently brought to my attention that SOME OF YOU {not naming names} may be finding my blog posts lately a bit shorter, and less thoughtful than usually.

Geez...... SORRY! 

Not like I'm busy quitting my job, setting up a business, establishing my company brand and values, hitting up potential new clients, leasing office space, WORKING, hiring an employee...

And, I'm not at all busy being a full time mommy with responsibilities including mealtime, bath time, diaper time, play time, walk time, park time, dance time, read time, beach time, sticker time....

And, oh yeah- full time wife too, busy with... there's gotta be something....sorry John.
Just kidding.


Tough crowd.


But, thanks {I guess} for the casual reminder to pick it up. I gotta keep you wanting more!
Blog more- check. 

Also brought to my attention this week:

For a house with a tall, rambunctious toddler- we have WAY too many Sharpie Markers. Where the hell did they all come from? Costco?

Peanut butter SHOULD NOT be a part of EVERY meal in our house. We. Are. Gross. 
Peanut butter on bread for breakfast, a spoonful for a snack, PB&J for lunch, another spoonful (with chocolate) for dessert. It just needs to stop.

No one in Orange County owns their car. It's not possible, and I won't believe otherwise. It's all about the LEASE and UPGRADE around here...Just keeping up with the Joneses, I suppose.

Speaking of Orange County, Real Housewives- I'm so glad you're back! But, HD-DVR- thanks for letting me record and watch on my own time!

Audrey CANNOT go into the bathroom alone ANYMORE. She locked herself in for the second time today, screaming and crying for me to save her...It was horrific. But, it got even worse when I ran to the kitchen to fetch a knife and set her free, and stepped in some fresh Jesse puke on the kitchen floor...Barefoot. Lesson learned- use the freaking baby proof door lock!

Why didn't I think of Pinterest? I love it!!!!!!!!! By the way, follow K. Sutherland PR's pins here. {Promote my own company- check.}

I am obsessed with checklists.

And, I need to get more sleep. Goodnight.

love, kerry

Happy Birthday, Steve!!!

Steve! Happy birthday!!!

I'm sure you were at school today, but at least it's FRIDAY!!!! Hope you have plans for something fun tonight, and this weekend too!

It's never too late to fly down to Huntington Beach either...
Feels like summer. 

Audrey and I will see you in Reno next week!

love, kerry, john and audrey

I don't even know where to start. 

Thank you SO MUCH to my amazing family and friends who have all been so supportive these last few weeks while I've been a stressed, frazzled mess. And, especially thanks to those who MADE THINGS HAPPEN, literally overnight, just to help me hit the ground running. 

Only two days in to this new venture, and things are looking GOOD.
Real good. 

I made the best decision. 
And, I am so happy. 

love, kerry

Independence Day

Good morning,

This day is finally here!!!!!!!!!!!!
My Independence Day. 

Few of you know this, but two weeks and one day ago, I quit my job for something bigger.

Goodbye consistent paycheck.
Goodbye retirement fund.
And, {sadly}, goodbye to some really talented, really fun, just really good people- some of my former co-workers.

But, I'm only looking forward now, and I'm moving on to something better- my own business.

MY very own PR and Marketing Agency. 
MY chance to do business the way I want to do it. MY chance to execute work the way I want to do it. MY chance to work with clients the way I want to do it. MY chance to do business where I want to do it. MY chance to have complete control over the way MY team will work internally.

I have a vision, a plan for something new.

Something that I believe my future clients, my future employees, and of course myself will really be happy about.

As you can imagine, today will be busy.
Bring. It. On.


I'd also like to mention that in addition to being my first official day "on my own", today is also Audrey's 17th Month Birthday! Yay! And, if that still wasn't enough to make 2/8 special forever- our good friends, Jamie and Graham are in Kauai today- getting married.

As John would say- Happy Independ-Birth-Wed-Day!!!

So, celebrate with me- turn on (and blast) your favorite song, CLICK HERE, and let's party!

Three beers, two spoons, one brownie, and a kid's milk...

Sounds like a date night to me!

On My Playlist: Getting Pumped Up!

In honor of the BIG game Sunday....
and other stuff. ;)

WARNING: LOTS of bad words.
And some corny jock rock jams from high school.
Whatever works, right? 

This mix will be set to 'repeat' for the next week AT LEAST...Earmuffs, Audrey.

love, kerry

this girl had guts...

Age: 17
Milan, Italy

She. Was. Fearless.

She went for it.
She worked hard to make her dreams come true...

Sure, she was judged, criticized, misunderstood, even hated.
It wasn't always easy...but, that didn't hold her back.
She survived, and she grew.


I'm channeling this girl from my past...
I love this girl.

love, kerry

My Girl.

I love a princess who loves her stuffed animals.

Stuck On You!

So, stickers are kind of a big deal at chez-nous. 

Audrey is fascinated by these little pieces of beautiful, colorful paper, that feel so funny on her fingers, and stick exactly where she wants...

At our house, stickers {mostly Disney princess-themed, flower and/or hearts} are on the usual targets- paper, books, her body.

But, I've got a creative baby who thinks outside the box- and on the furniture, on the dog, on her toys, the phone, the toilet.

I've seen it all.


But, this one sticker tonight...really, the inspiration for this entire silly sticker post... was carefully selected, brought to me as a surprise, and applied to my sweatshirt by her perfect little piggies....

She always knows JUST what to say...right when I need to hear it...

Thanks for the support pretty girl...
It's all for you {and, of course, Dada too}.

love, kerry
