Summer Travel Giveaway with the PA Turnpike!


Who’s ready to travel this summer?! WE ARE! I know you are too, and so I’m teaming up with the PA Turnpike for a great summer travel giveaway! You could say Mark and I are Road Pros when it comes to traveling the PA Turnpike. We’ve been E-ZPass customers for about 10 years.

My COVID Testing Experience


I got really sick about 2 months ago. It came out of the blue and I was down for the count. Worried I might have COVID, I went to GS Labs on McKnight Road. I did their rapid tests and thankfully, I didn’t have COVID (wooo!) I talked to the customer service folks before I went (they were so nice and helpful) and the staff on site was great. Fast forward to this week, and…

These Are All Way Better Than Strapless Bras


If you hate strapless bras, you are my friend. I was forever adjusting them and pulling them up, and then I decided not to wear them anymore. Here are the items I wear now. I either go for pasties or a bralette with pretty straps that I don’t mind others seeing. 🙂 1 – Evereve bralette2 – Breast petals3 – Adhesive bra4 – Aerie bralette

What We’re Loving This Week!


Mark’s favorite slim cut jeans are on sale at JCrew Factory. The feta-tomato dip/pasta bake that’s all over TikTok and Instagram is worth the hype! I actually made my second batch this weekend just because it’s so good. I don’t do fake lashes, but I do use L’Oreal voluminous mascara in all black. It’s been a staple of mine for years, and it’s only seven dollars. 2 Netflix recommendations…Dead To Me and Call My Agent….

Why I Stopped Watching The Real Housewives


I must start by saying that I was (and still kinda am) a HUGE Housewives fan. I loved the New York City crew and I love me some Erika Jane and Lisa Rinna on the Beverly Hills side. About a month ago, I saw there was a new crew…the ladies from Salt Lake City. I hadn’t watched in awhile so I thought I’d try it. Instead of it being a fun escape or a guilty…

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…

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…
