March Family Night: Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show

We had a fun family night for the month of March–we went to the Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show and it did not disappoint! My parents even met up with us to join in on the fun.

It’s typically a really busy event at the convention center downtown, so we chose to go on a Monday night to avoid the weekend crowds. It has over 1,500 exhibits spread out over ten acres for all things home and garden along with food and pet items, too.  (more…)


A Staycation and a Surprise

Jimmy took off of work on Thursday and Friday last week and it was so wonderful to have some extra time together as a family!

With Jimmy being a co-owner of his family’s business, work never actually stops. It’s just part of the package deal of business ownership, you know? He had to quickly run into work early (like 6 am) on Thursday, took phone calls throughout the day, and had to pick up one of his employees from the hospital (😱) but we made the best of it all!

I grabbed us all Starbucks once he got home and we made our way to a local mall in the afternoon.
