Hey there! What’s up? I’m Katelyn Fagan.
Welcome to my website!

What’s up Fagans? began back in 2009, a few months after my husband Joshua and I were married as a way to share our life with friends and family out-of-state. In 2013 I officially turned it into a business and began creating content people un-related to me would find useful and interesting. It has proven to be the means whereby our family escaped poverty and paid off debts all while my husband pursued advanced degrees.
About Katelyn Fagan
I am a 30-year-old wife, Mormon, work from home blogger, stay at home mom and homeschooler of five young kids (including a set of twins).
I love going on adventures and trying new things, always looking to have some fun, which is pretty easy because I enjoy doing just about anything.
I attend a monthly book club in the hopes that I’ll actually read more books. I like to run or bike and lift weights but am so very far from being a fitness guru. I just like feeling healthier. And it helps balance my love of sweets and desserts.
My amazing husband of almost 10 years is currently a PhD student earning a doctorate degree in mathematics education in the hopes of becoming a college professor and is currently working like mad to finish his dissertation and graduate next spring.
We are pretty simple people, who still rent, still have massive student loan debt we’re paying off, don’t wear designer anything, and generally like to live minimalistic.
We are also pretty silly, don’t take ourselves very seriously, and like to have a lot of fun.
We are passionate about marriage, family, Christ, and improving ourselves.
We totally make goals.
And my goal for What’s up Fagans? is to always provide you with valuable information.
Whether or not you’ll agree with me in all of my posts, I hope you’ll always appreciate my humble, down-to-earth, non-judgmental, goofy, all too practical, frugal, Mormon-self, who has a hard time holding grudges and smiles a huge toothy smile very easily.
May God bless you and your family on your journey in life.
You’ll find that I approach parenting with a sense of humor and honesty. Because while I’m trying to raise awesome kids with boundaries, responsibility, work ethics, and religion, I don’t really know what I am doing. Like you, I just try my best.
