Little sister

Scary occurrences and a question

It’s May 15th. It snowed in Pittsburgh today. That’s all I have to say about that 😉

I was scared silly twice this weekend.

Occurrence #1: Hannah and her boyfriend went to her senior prom on Friday night, and were coming over to mine and Jimmy’s house to hang out on Saturday night. Around 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, Hannah’s boyfriend called me. This is how the conversation went…

Josh: Hey, it’s Josh. Do you know where Hannah is? I can’t get a hold of her.
Me: What? No. Is she with Melissa? (Melissa is her best friend)
Josh: No, she doesn’t know where she is either.
Me: Oh… (I had to sit down at this point because I seriously couldn’t stand. I was so worried!).
Hannah: WE’RE JUST KIDDING! What’s Up?!

I was freaking out. I seriously thought my sister was kidnapped after their prom or something insane, but it was just her and her boyfriend playing a trick on me. Not funny 😉


Oh, Hannah. You are something else! This picture was taken during our trip to the Outer Banks in North Carolina!

Occurence #2: Every person I pet sit for has a different way of how they want me to enter their house. Whether it’s via key, garage, or another way, I’ve never had any problems. Without getting into too much detail, there was a misunderstanding this past weekend and I thought the owner’s house was broken into. Calling the owner and saying that I thought the house was broken into was probably the worst feeling ever, haha. I’m so glad it was just a misunderstanding, though!

Now onto my predicament and question:

My mom and I are traveling to Savannah, Georgia next month (!!) and can’t decide if we want to fly or drive. It’s an 10.5 hour drive from Pittsburgh to Savannah, but only a two hour trip via plane. The only issue is that I am terrified of flying. It’s my biggest fear.

If we drive, we will travel from Pittsburgh to Charlotte, NC (7 hours) and stay in a hotel and then drive from Charlotte to Savannah the next day (3.5 hours). It’s a tough choice because it costs about the same amount of money to drive and get a hotel in Charlotte versus fly and get a rental car in Savannah. The amount of travel time we’ll save flying is insane, buuuut is it worth the emotional stress? I don’t know!

What would you do?!

Also, what is the scariest thing that has happened to you recently?


Hey there! I am working on my purity ring Q&A post, but in the mean time, I want to share some pictures I’ve taken recently. They’re all pretty random. Just the way I like ’em!


Surprise! A cat picture! Just kidding, that’s not surprising. I just love Lily and Felix. Right after I took this picture, they started play-fighting and I got nervous they would break my window’s screen and fall to their untimely deaths.


Hannah is a beast at mowing the lawn.


Swimming is one of my most favorite activities in the whole wide world. It’s so relaxing to me. I also have the best swimming buddy!


On Saturday, Jimmy and I did something we’ve never done together before. We got our hair cut! I asked the hair stylist to cut off my dead ends, and now my hair is like three inches shorter. I’ll have to post a picture soon. I liked that the person who cut Jimmy’s hair spiked it! In the photo above, he was reading while I worked on some internship work. Can you guess where we were?


I really enjoy working in my church’s nursery. It makes me want kids and not want kids at the same time.


I washed my truck on Saturday morning because the weather was amazing and my truck was dirty. Yay for being productive.

What’s the last thing you photographed?!
