What I wrote in 1999

My great aunt just emailed me a PDF of a homework assignment I sent her when I was seven-years-old. I thought I would share a screen shot of it here on my blog. The best part is definitely the last sentence, haha!

I guess I always liked food and writing. And writing about food. And making sure my pets were alive.


On a random note, please tell me you’ve heard of stink bugs. It seems like they magically appear in Pittsburgh when the seasons change, or if we have a warm spell in colder months. I have been having such a struggle with these bugs! I have literally found dozens of them inside my truck the past few days.

The worst feeling is when I’m driving and I know a stink bug is flying around in my truck. I end up making faces like this.

Confused. Scared. Mad. All kinds of emotions going on.

Also, thanks to everyone who said they liked my fall-ish outfit in my last post! The jean jacket? I borrowed it from Hannah… without her knowing 😉

Have you seen/heard of stink bugs?

(If I see one more I’m going to cry. Just kidding. But not really..)

Did you have a favorite subject in elementary school?
(Mine were gym and English!)

Lamb and stuff

This past weekend was spectacular.

On Black Friday, I went to the gym bright and early to lift weights and saw my mom and aunt in the same shopping plaza–while they were doing their Christmas shopping. They gave me a ride to my car… except I couldn’t sit in the seat because the vehicle was filled with stuff. First world problems.

The only place I shopped on Black Friday was online!

I spent most of Friday working on a huge research paper on TLC (the TV channel). I have actually been enjoying writing the research paper. What a nerd.

Friday night, my family took our family from New York to a classic Pittsburgh restaurant, Primanti Bros., to celebrate my little cousin’s 11th birthday. I tried lamb for the first time and I really liked it!

Saturday was also spent with family. My mom, sister, aunt, cousin, and I all went to a craft fair at the local YMCA. Yay for Small Business Saturday! I purchased a candle and two hand-painted cards. 

I started off Sunday with church.

I saw Jimmy for the first time in a week. He went to New York to visit his family for Thanksgiving. It was really nice to hang out with him all day in between church services.

We painted Christmas ornaments together for some very special people!

They’re not done yet!

More on the ornaments in another post!

How was your weekend?
