I’m A Sucker For A Tin Ceiling


Mark and I LOVE the character of old homes and knew we wanted to feature a tin ceiling in our home renovation! Mark built a recessed ceiling (it’s also called a tray ceiling) above our kitchen island for the tin tiles. We think this is a great way to add personality to the kitchen that’s on budget and also still classic! We chose silver tin tiles, and there will be 3 pendant lights hanging down…

We Designed Our Kitchen! (And then changed it.)


Okay friends, we’re in the home stretch. Not really but saying it makes me feel better! We partnered with Cabinets To Go for our kitchen and really enjoyed the design process with our guy, Alex. He’s at the Murrysville store if you want to see him. We went with white shaker cabinets. I love a white kitchen and think it’s timeless! We’re going to add personality through the details like a tin ceiling, green pendant…

Resolution Hater, Intention Lover


Hear me out on the New Year’s resolutions…I love them and hate them and think they’re important and also silly. I know, I know…I’m full of contradictions. I think it’s super important to set an INTENTION for the year and then 2 or 3 action items that you can ACTUALLY DO to realize the goal you have for yourself. All the books I read say that the intention behind your action is the main driver…

Skincare Routine Part One


I’m a high low kinda girl. That goes for clothes, home decor and beauty products. I don’t think you should spend all your money on expensive products. I think one or two expensive beauty products mixed in with some drugstore favorites do the trick. Here’s what I’ve learned about my skin and looking youthful. 1. YOU MUST WEAR SUNSCREEN ALL THE TIME. Like as soon as you wake up, put it on. I use Neutrogena’s…

Winter Wonderland!


I wanted to wait until my new website was up to share our trip up to Seven Springs!This is the second time we’ve partnered with GoLaurelHighlands, and we love going to the mountains because it’s only an hour from our house and there is SO MUCH to do! We started in Ligonier and had dinner at Carol and Dave’s Roadhouse. Is there anything better than a home cooked meal with a Moscow mule?! NO!Ligonier’s Light…

How I Stay Healthy During The Holidays!


Here’s my philosophy about the holidays when it comes to food/parties/weight gain…you don’t want to indulge so much and get so off track that you start the new year not feeling your best. For me, being mindful of what I’m eating, how much and getting in some exercise keeps me feeling good, keeps my weight in check and then I kick off 2020 in the best possible place! I’M NOT A DOCTOR, but here are…

#MomFashion


Time to take back #MomJeans and rebrand that word as the awesomeness it is! My favorite pair are from J.Crew and I found them on a sale rack like 3 years ago. They sat in my drawer because I didn’t know how to wear them and then came the “French Tuck” and all bets were off! The French Tuck is the most fashionable way to tuck in your shirt and rock the #MomJeans look. That is obviously…

Best Weekend Ever!


I should go away for the night more often, and always with my sister in tow! We really had the best time on our sisters’ getaway to the Laurel Highlands last week. A little bit of culture, a little bit of nature and a big, delicious meal were exactly what we needed! We started with a tour of Fallingwater, the iconic home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. I loved all the modern furniture he designed…

Pee on the Bugs!


We are in the throes of potty training and by “throes” I mean Henry has no interest. He is now two and a half and I’m noticing that other kids his age at the playground and in gymnastics class are not in diapers. We did get him a Paw Patrol toilet seat and he likes to sit on it then throw toilet paper in and flush it. But the actual act of going the bathroom…

Stepping OUT!


I want to thank ALL OF YOU for the sweet messages and kind words and GOOD MOJO that you sent my way this week. When I announced that I’m stepping away from Channel 11 to do new things, I got so much encouragement from people who said that life is short and you need to seize opportunities and take risks! Change is exciting and scary. I have felt ALL THE EMOTIONS these last 6 months…
