Yesterday, I did something, well, beyond awesome. I mingled with a few of my favorite team‘s players (Starks, Batch, and Essex) while we helped the Food Bank and Max pass out turkey and fixings to a little over 250 families. This was truly a blessing–it feels so good to give back and do good at any time of the year, but especially around holidays.
The thing that excited me most is that when my co-workers emptied the truck, I recognized some of the tote bags from The Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project. You know how much that made my day because of my love for helping them out. Well…I wanted to do a nice write up here on the blog, but I think I’d rather send you over to the Tote Bag Project’s blog about the night–feel good stuff! Please take a visit and read!
Thank you Max, Charlie, and Trey for giving back to our community. You seriously made my Thanksgiving.
Every Sunday in the fall, our family snuggles on the couch and watches the Pittsburgh Steelers game. Today is no exception.
A ‘lil bit ago, Mr. Burgher got upset about the lack of a flag for a hold against Mike Wallace. He was yelling, “Where’s the flag? Awwwww, c’mon! Where’s the flag?”.
‘lil Miss A notices something on the TV and yells, “There’s the flag, Daddy!” I couldn’t help but laugh (as much as I love my husband, Mike Wallace, and the Steelers). You probably will, too.
(She was right!)
On October 22, Mr. Burgher, ‘Lil Man, and I walked with my work in the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk.
We walked for:
* 2 Pop 4 Sure
* Uncle B
* Pappy Jack P
* Cousins M and D
* First Mate G
* And all the others who’ve been impacted by Heart Disease
Post PodCamp Pittsburgh and a weekend suffering from some random cold Lil Miss A brought home from pre-school, Mr. Burgher and I are resting up this evening. We had a wonderful time working, playing, and enjoying PodCamp. If you were involved in any way, thank you for all you did to make this event successful. It was an honor to be involved in the organizer/volunteer crew, and although we didn’t get to enjoy many sessions (your full bellies have to be thankful), we hope you gained a lot of knowledge.
More fun from us to come…but for now…we’ll be stuck on our couch, trying to rest up for the week.
The other day, I celebrated turning in A’s preschool application with a nice, helpful serving of Oakmont Bakery. This cake pop was incredible. You’ll just have to trust me.
