Yinz Give Back!


Friends, it’s time to give back! I think a lot of us feel weird about this holiday season. It’s not the same as years past, and it doesn’t feel right to just buy more stuff that we probably don’t need. COVID-19 has decimated communities and households who will be forever changed. Lots of you reached out and shared some amazing organizations in Western PA that are helping families get through this. Below are lists of…

Weekly Roundup of Our Favorites!


Hi friends! Here’s what we’re loving, watching, eating and obsessing over this week! This Hulk costume at Walmart. It’s Henry’s favorite and he’s wearing it for Halloween. Here’s a SpiderMan one and a Captain America. Currently obsessed with this new Threshold quilt I got for our bed. It’s faux fur on one side and so soft and it’s perfect for fall and winter! The extra long lumbar pillow is a new favorite too. Both are…

Everything We Bought For Our Home (so far!) That We Love!


Hello friends! Lots of new followers on Instagram and Facebook so I wanted to revisit some of our favorite items that we’ve purchased in our home renovation journey. Camel bar stools. We LOVE these and got them on Wayfair. They’re easy to put together, look really chic and I just wipe them with a wet cloth when Henry spills all his food and drinks on them! Firework chandelier. This is a recent purchase for us,…

Am I Too Old To Have A Baby?


Should I have another baby? Will I even be able to conceive?! THESE are the questions I’m trying to answer, my friends. I’m about to turn 38 years old (with a 43-year-old husband) and the issue of FERTILITY is a weekly discussion in our house. Since I’m in my late 30s and considered “geriatric” by the medical community, in terms of pregnancy, I figured I should talk to an expert to see if I have…

What I Eat In A Day!


So many of you love to follow our home renovations (thank you!) and I equally get as much interest (usually from the ladies) about what I eat to stay healthy. I’ve shared many times how I was a tomboy growing up and loved all sports! Off to college I went, put on a bunch of weight and then had to find what worked for me in terms of eating well, moving my body and feeling…

Our Guest Bath


Right now, we have one fully functional and tricked out bathroom in our house! It’s our guest bath, and it’s on the third floor. It’s big and spacious, and we knew we could live in the house comfortably and use it while taking our time renovating the master bath. We wanted to go for modern and funky in this room so we picked an oval sink, a double globe sconce in black and brass and…

Kids, COVID and Is It Okay To Go To The Pool?


Oh friends, COVID really threw a wrench in our summer plans! I know we’re all doing our best but RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU AND YOUR KID ARE GOING STIR CRAZY!! 🙂 We cancelled our travel plans but started having some of Henry’s little friends over to play outside at our water table. We’re also regulars at our neighborhood spray park. Even though we’re outside, I started wondering…is it even okay to do this? Should Henry…

Save versus Splurge – Master Bedroom Edition!


I’m so excited to share the details of our master bedroom renovation because I ABSOLUTELY LOVE how it turned out! If you follow me on Instagram, you know my love of BUDGETING and how Mark and I do a save/splurge analysis of each home renovation task before we start. I hope you get inspired from our master bedroom overhaul! The accent wall (it’s called a board and batten design) is the feature piece. Mark built…

Plants, plants, PLANTS!


Hello, friends! I’ve been meaning to write this blog for awhile because so many people ask us what kind of trees, bushes and grasses we planted at our new house! In addition to being a home renovation connoisseur, Mark is a landscape architect. He has such an eye for designing beautiful outdoor spaces! What he created at our new house is incredible, and I’m excited to share it with you! 🙂 First, we planted trees…

What to listen to during #quarantine!


Today in our #quarantineroutine series, my favorite radio chick @KELONAIR is spilling the beans about doing her radio show at home with a toddler. (I can call her a chick because she’s my friend and a bad ass lady. 😊) Kelly and I are soul sisters in this social distancing world because we both need to get into full-on, HD, “gonna be in a movie” makeup every morning to actually have a productive day. I…
