In fact, it isn't unusual for him to be on the road two or three days a week. This separation is not only hard on our boys, but it is also hard on Mike (my husband). He feels that he is missing out on some of those special moments such as telling the boys he loves ... [ Read More ]

More Than a Rug: Transforming Our Fixer Upper Dining Room

Tribeca Wayfair Area Rug

Three years ago, Mike and I bought a fixer-upper house. We knew that it was going to take a lot of work to get the house where we want it, and although we still have a way to go there are some rooms that just need those special finishing touches. Our dining room is one of those rooms.  We opted not to set up the dining room as a formal dining area, but instead decided to do it as more of a flexible space which can be used for either ...

Idlewild & Soak Zone

I have always loved amusement parks. The rides, the food, the atmosphere, I loved it all. Over the years I have visited quite a few amusement parks, each with their own unique personality, but I don't think I have ever encountered a park quite like Idlewild & SoakZone, which is tucked away off of Route 3o in Ligonier, PA.  Located in the foothills of the Ligonier Valley, Idlewild initially started out as one of the many trolley parks ...

#TBT: Remembering Greensburg’s Mountain View Inn


If you know me, you know that I love history. I have a lot of really interesting antiques, postcards, and photographs that I have collected over the years. What good is a collection, however, if you can't share it? This is why I have decided to do a weekly Throwback Thursday (#TBT) history post. I hope you love reading these posts as much as I enjoy creating them! This week we are taking a look at what was once Mountain View Inn in Greensburg, ... [ Read More ]

Thomas the Train Inspired Chocolate Covered Pretzels


E is a huge fan of Thomas the Train, and has been since he was about 1 and a half. For both his second and his third birthdays he has requested a Thomas the Tank Engine birthday party. The first year, I went with a lot of store-bought favors and decorations (it might have had something to do with being 7 months pregnant too), however, for his second birthday I decided to do it with more of a DIY flare.  Instead of buying Thomas-themed ...
