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…

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…

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….

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.

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…
