Pittsburgh Marathon 5k… Almost Time

Come Sunday, I know I will be extremely jealous of all the runners. I know my heart will be with them as they run through the Strip, across the bridge, past the stadiums, into West End, through Station Square and South Side, up the Boulevard and crossing that finish line. Sadly, this just isn’t my year. I decided I would do the 5k back in January, and while at the time I thought I’d be regretting it, I can 100% {Read More}

Currently… April

I’ve been meaning to write these every month for the past year. And well, time passes and it hasn’t happened. I’m finally sitting down to get this written. I had planned on having it ready this morning but last night I came down with some awful stomach bug. Thankfully I felt better this morning but once Annabelle went to bed, I was on the couch! Here we go… Currently.. Reading… I just started The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult. It’s {Read More}

Mt. Summit Challenge

On our way to Deep Creek every year, we climb up a mountain, where we were always told to  turn off the AC and open the windows just to make sure we made it. We probably don’t need to nowadays with our cars, as this was more for towing the boat with older cars, but we always do it out of habit. This mountain is 3ish miles, completely uphill, with your ears popping left and right. Once you reach the {Read More}

Tips for Flying with an Infant

We flew from Pittsburgh to Houston and back a few weeks ago, with my (then) 5 month old. The biggest thing I can tell you is to start making lists and keep them handy for everything you think of! Here are some other tips for flying with an infant that worked for us: Clear out your diaper bag and only pack what you need for the flight. We had toys, a few diapers, two burp clothes, 2 bibs, formula, and {Read More}

My Minted Purchases and a $150 Minted Giveaway!

Minted has caught my eye for years. I love going on and dreaming of the cards to send out for holidays, and loved looking at the baby announcements when Annabelle was born! We, sadly, didn’t send any out, so I didn’t have a chance to buy any. I was more than excited when I was offered a chance to find some pieces for Annabelle’s nursery, and offer a giveaway! The neat thing about this website is that everything is made {Read More}

Annabelle: 6 Months

6 months. A half year. I cannot believe it. Aaron and I realized she was going to be 6 months the weekend before and we both got a little sad! I can’t believe she’s been with us this long, but can’t remember life without her. I was trying to remember pregnancy the other day when talking to a friend and it seems like so far away! Stats: Height: 26 1/4 in Weight: 18 lb 6 oz Head: 43 cm She {Read More}
