about kate & lucky bandit



Hello, I'm Katelyn Carter, but you can call me Kate.

By day, I work in dining at a retirement community and I absolutely love it. By afternoon, I'm umpiring baseball. By night, I blog here at lucky bandit.

reside in Richmond, Virginia with my fiance, Kyle, a betta fish named FrootLoop (who rooms with a snail named Arthur), and my two adorable dogs - a rescue pitbull, Tucker, and former stray sharpei, Jeffery. My boys are my world! 

Baseball is a huge part of my life, though it likely won't be seen much here as I deal largely with children. I officiate baseball a lot more than I play baseball, but I do play in a women's baseball league, too. If it's ball season, March through November, I'm on a ball field a few nights a week.

One of my main hobbies is house plants! I have dozens and dozens and it drives Kyle mad, but we all cohabitate just fine. I hope to start a house plant blog at some point!

I don't have a lot of spare time but what little I do have is usually filled with tending to my many house plants, reading (huge Stephen King fan here!), thrifting, yoga, or just spending time being a couch potato. Occasionally I get a little crafty and I'll sew, make some jewelry, or paint something.

As for lucky bandit...

Here at lucky bandit you'll find all my hobbies: house plants, beauty, food, DIY projects, book reviews, and more! This blog is my little corner of the internet where I can document projects, my traveling, pets, woes, tales of happiness, and everyday thoughts.
