The Superbowl* approaching reminded me of a trip I never shared with you. *For my non sports fan out there, I promise, this is not a post about football.** **If you know me, you know it is not physically possible for me to write a post based entirely on sports.*** ***That is, of course, unless … More In and Around Pittsburgh
Today’s Four for Friday is brought to you by three things I love: shoes, the Bible, and coffee.* *Not necessarily in that order. 1. Shoes I’ve become obsessed with this classic shoe style which has recently gained a modern twist. I did a little research on this slip-on shoe and found that in the 16th-19th … More Four for Friday!
I semi-promised you this tale. And I’ve decided to be strong and share it. We had Stitch for about a month when life started looking up. We were able to watch an hour long TV show without having to a.) sit on the floor, b.) keep Stitch from biting at us, the couch, or the … More The Fall
I haven’t posted about what I’m currently reading since February….2017.* And unfortunately, if you’re hoping for an update, that isn’t what I’m giving today.** *Shameful, I know. **However, now that I’ve noticed this absence, and certainly am not currently still reading the books from last year’s post, I will right this wrong promptly. I read … More Be Fierce.

When we adopted Stitch, I had several friends check in with me to verify my sanity. After my first day alone with him, I needed to check it as well. Following a day filled with continuous couch jumping, biting, and inability to simply sit still, I crated him, and sat beside him thinking, I was not … More Sit. Stay. Down. Off. No.
What does one do with five full days at sea? Eat. Yes. Eat most certainly takes first place. But once breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses*, lunch, and poolside snack have taken place, there is this eerie gap in time which food cannot fill. *You know of hobbit meal times, yes? Mojito tasting Fortunately, cruise ships offer … More Tasting Away our Days at Sea
Today’s Four For Friday is completely food and drink based–and I love it. 1. Coffee Did you know, the smell of coffee alone can wake up your brain? Neither did I…until I read this article. I’ve been trying to learn a little more about the nitty gritty of this stuff I love so much. I’ll … More Four for Friday!
For our cruise, I’d settled on not booking any excursions until we were aboard the ship. Most of the offerings seemed like things we could do on our own (i.e.: different beaches, shopping areas, etc) by way of taxi.* *And after being candidly told by the excursion desk representative while vacationing in Sint Maarten that … More Island Flavors
I was gifted the role of cruise planner for our family cruise. Which meant I micromanaged every little detail in order to ensure everything went as smoothly as it possibly could. And while it may seem like I’m exaggerating, I promise you, I am not. There were emails. There were handouts. There were meetings. Because I … More The Saran Wrap Game, Real Jersey Style
