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…

Your Mental Health and COVID-19

FRIENDS! I’M WRITING IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS BLOG! A few days ago, I talked with Dr. Matt Iwaniec, a psychologist at AHN, who specializes in cognitive behavioral therapy. I’ve listened to some podcasts about CBT and was super interested in learning some tangible strategies to help deal with negative thinking and anxiety. Dr. Matt was super awesome and shared his techniques to help improve your mood, lessen your anxiety…

Staying-At-Home Truths!

Now that we’re on Day 7,856 of this #quarantine, there are a few simple truths that I follow to stay sane, upbeat and somewhat put together! I put on makeup and fix my hair every morning. I don’t know the psychology behind it, I just know that it makes me feel better and helps me tackle the day. Making the beds and cleaning the kitchen. When the house feels tidy, I feel more in control….

Everything we’re watching, reading and listening to while riding out #Coronavirus at home!

Hi friends! Sharing some of our FAVORITE THINGS while we’re all at home riding out this crazy/scary/WTF pandemic. Hope you all are healthy and happy…here’s how we’re passing the time. In addition to playing with my lipstick and making himself a “tiger” we are currently watching the documentary series WONDERSTRUCK on BBC America. It’s kind of like their Planet Earth series. The beauty they capture around the world is just mind blowing! Henry loves it…

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…

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…

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…
