About Me

Pittsburgh, United States
35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Hanging my head.....

I'm exactly 1 month away from turning 35.(eek!!) I don't feel 35 at all. Mentally I still feel about 25 while physically I feel what I guess 60 feels like.  60-25 is 35 so I guess that's about right then.....

A few weeks after my birthday last year I posted a list of 35 things I wanted to accomplish in the coming year. Well I failed big time! Here's what I did manage to get done:

*Half of #12
*#14
*#31
*#34

3.5 out of 35 goals. Yes, I suppose I have a month to go so I'm going to shoot for 2-3 more and then give add the rest to next years list :)

So 2 months in between posts. Not because I suck at life,but because I suck at blogging.....
Here's what's going on:

Our baby-man graduated Kindergarten. He also had the highest amount of points for Accelerated Reader in his class. 

This also means our time is up at Bellevue Elementary but we have decided to embrace our new school and are now a little excited about it.



Our whole family became Doctor Who geeks.



Our girl had her first parade as a member of the NHS Flames Marching Band.



We now have Froyo just up the street from our house. This is good and bad.

We love spending time with our friend's-The Cross family.


We had fun attending and serving at our church'sVBS. Emma and her friend Matt made awesome Counselors in training! 

Ok, this is half of #12. I was baptized at our church picnic. It was a Blessed day indeed.

The little kids and I had so much fun finally experiencing Sandcastle thanks to our neighbor Kate! 



Took Emma to her first Warped tour where she met her favorite band!



And lastly, we finally had a little family get away. We took a drive up to Erie. Went to Waldameer park,Presque Isle,ate a whole bunch of good food. Shopped for some fun stuff (Doctor Who t's) and spent time together. Just the 6 of us. We stopped at the Spillway on the way home.

Now today,Tim is back to work.....Em is at pre-band camp. She's going away for a week for regular band camp and I'm excited and sad at the same time. I have to share so much of her now!!

Well hopefully I will post again before I actually turn 35! Until then...........

I'm glad you found my blog by Googling "Kennywood deaths" because it looks like we have some things in common!

I just turned 34 and Pierce the Veil is one of my favorite bands also (learned that from your Instagram!), I go to Warped Tour every year and I'm also from Pittsburgh! I have one 7-year-old son, Riley. (We've been calling him Chooch since he was born though; just one of those inexplicable pet names!)

You seem super awesome and I'm looking forward to getting to know you!
