These are a few of my favorite things…

My blog has definitely taken a pregnancy turn…sorry if it’s boring you, it has pretty much taken over my body and life–so I think it’s safe to say I think about it often.  Anyways, my pregnancy has certainly been an interesting time for me. I’ve had ups and downs and wide ranges of emotions.  It…

Staying positive…

Today marks 8 years since my brother left this world. I would love to say it has become easier, but it hasn’t. I still think of him every single day and wonder how life would be different if he were still around. I thought getting married and not having him there would be one of…

Happy 2017 💕

It’s so hard to believe it’s already 2017. Where has the time gone?! As crazy as it is, I’m happy that it’s here. There is one main reason I can’t wait for 2017–and that reason is that in a few short months our little lady will make her big arrival.  Being pregnant has been a…

Proud to be a NITTANY LION and a MOM!

I’m not quite sure how to describe how good this Monday feels! This past weekend was one of the best weekends ever! Not only did I get to see a whole bunch of my friends and be in Happy Valley…we got to be in Happy Valley the weekend that PSU beat Ohio state 24-21. This…

Feel GOOD Friday…Take Some Time to Give Some Time!

I’ve always been a fan of volunteering my time, as I am very fortunate to have a job that pays me enough to live off of, a husband who brings home the bacon, and a dog that lays on the couch while we work (we still love you THOR!).  In an effort to give back…

Please don’t ask me if I am pregnant!

So, I try to keep everything as positive on here as possible, but the weirdest thing has happened to me in the past few years–even prior to getting married.  It happens to me at work more than anything, but has definitely been on a steady increase since we got married, and I just feel like…
