Happy Birthday to Mundie Moms Founder, Katie B!!!!

I Saw Her in the Library by theblackapple

It's a certain you-know-whos birthday today, and I'm sneaking in a post before she can complain too much about all the attention that she truly deserves.

I thought this year rather than posting our favorite fictional hotties, I'd give you Top Ten Facts about Katie that you may or may not know.

10) She adores broken boys, fictionally speaking (*insert a mention of Jace and Will here).

  9) Her shelfie game is strong (little know fact: she gives away hundreds of books on the blog and to local schools).

  8) She is THE best partner in crime EVER (and thief and spy) (little known fact: she may have been a Gallagher Girl).

  7) She really does read banned books (and she reads them to her kids, too).

  6)  She is not afraid to strike a Dumplin' pose. Watch out pageant people, she may well enter one!

  5) Artwork like this makes her very happy -- whimsical and sweet. (little known fact: her sarcasm game is strong, too, don't be fooled by cute woodland animals. A snarky comment is lurking in her somewhere)

  4) She truly, truly believes in this (little known fact: she may check old armoire doors to see if they are gateways to Narnia):

3) And in this:

  2) She loves her family, the beach and hot tea (sometimes with a homemade scone):

Jace "too many names" by tarajah

  1) She is the fiercest, most loyal friend you will ever have. She has laughed with me until we cried, she has cried with me until we could no longer speak, she has listened and given countless pieces of advice in the seven years we've known each other. I am so very grateful that I can call her my very best friend.

So join Shandra, Emm and myself in wishing Katie B a happy, happy birthday. May this next trip around the sun bring her more bookish adventures, more funny tales to tell and most of all 12 months filled with happy moments.


(And no, you cannot remove this post!!! Also, stop looking at hand-wrapping Jace over there!!!)

Much love,
Shandra, Emm and Sophie
