Wildlife Wednesday: Catching Blue Crabs in Myrtle Beach

Sometimes you catch crabs on vacation. Sometimes the crabs catch you.

Last month we went on vacation to Myrtle Beach and stayed at a resort right by the ocean. I grew up in a town not far from MB, but regrettably did not take advantage of my proximity to the beach as often as I should have. The resort is located near a marsh inlet which proved to be an excellent source of wildlife! I will write more about the diverse ecosystem in another post, but for now, I want to talk about Crabs! keep reading

Essential Eyebrow Solution: The Before

At Blogger Bash NYC, I got to meet the team from Essential Eyebrow Solution® and decided to embark on a journey to see what the solution could do for my eyebrows. This is the first post in a two-part series about this journey.

I can count the number of times I’ve had to wax my eyebrows on one hand, so maybe I’m lucky, or maybe I’m missing out on something awesome – nice, full eyebrows. Being a blond, it is tough for me to look at my face and see my eyebrows, so I can’t imagine that others are really noticing either. But the thing is, maybe I should give my eyebrows a thought! keep reading

Gonna Eat My Cookies

Repeat after me, moms. “You’re a good mom.” Repeat it again. And again. And once more for good measure. And if my own mom is reading this, I apologize (again) for every time I made you whisper, cry, yell, or speak this mantra.

Yinz guys, it’s been a tough three hours since I got home from work. I’m finally feeling inspired to write again, inspired to maybe actually pick up that guitar I kept yearning for, and like my running and weight-loss have hit a stride. I’m feeling GOOD at this working on me thing, but see, I think that’s exactly the problem. keep reading

Darien Lake: Our Visit

I worked with Darien Lake through a blogger partnership with US Family Guide. They sent us tickets for a visit in exchange for this post.

Summer is all about family fun and memories, right? Well, our fall has started and I’m really confused by the weather – it’s still been a bit steamy in Pittsburgh! We took advantage of this nice weather one weekend in September and took the kids and my bestie for a getaway to New York. One part of our visit was to Darien Lake amusement park, a highly suggested quick road trip from the Pittsburgh area! keep reading

What We’re Reading: October 2

Recently, the kids’ school had a book fair. We didn’t send in money for them to buy books, so I had to deal with the tears of the Bigs when they said they weren’t included in the shopping fun. But not to despair – the school had a pile of free books (well-loved) that they could pick from. keep reading
