warm weather


See that face? That’s the face of a girl with no more cast and a new dress form the thrift store. A sleeveless dress that I actually got to wear in November because it was close to 80 degrees today!

Cue the happy dance! I went to my follow-up appointment with an orthopedic doctor for my hand and he said he thinks my bone is just severely bruised.

He said I could have my hand in a splint or just have it bare as long as I take it easy. So, I’m a castaway! That thing went straight in the garbage 😉 I’m definitely still in some pain, but so excited to be free!

Sadie says hello!

She was enjoying being barefoot when I took this picture. The poor girl has been having a tough week so far. She has been fussy and clingy I can’t figure out if she’s getting her two-year molars, has an ear infection, or is just feeling off. Poor gal. 

Is anyone else getting super excited for Thanksgiving? Now that we’re in the double digits of November I’m in Thanksgiving mode! We’re going to have a family Thanksgiving night with just Jimmy, Sadie, and I the week before the actual holiday and I can’t wait. 

Are there any recipes that you make for Thanksgiving or fall in general? I’d love to hear about them! 

Here are a few of my favorites:

A Nice weekend

Hello! How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was swell!

Things I did this weekend:
-Slept in
-Ran 13 miles (OUTSIDE.. warm weather!)
-Went to my church’s movie night
-Learned about comic books (random, I know)
-Studied + did homework
-Went out to eat
-Went to the Pittsburgh RV Show!
-Walked Lola at a local park

januaryThe weather in Pittsburgh was amazing on Saturday and Sunday. I’m pretty sure the temperature hit 70 degrees on Sunday afternoon.

The Pittsburgh RV Show was a lot of fun. Would you believe the picture below was taken inside an RV?!IMG_4843Why yes, that is a washing machine and a dryer. In an RV. Crazy!

IMG_484666Pittsburgh is so pretty at night. Love it.

 Hannah put Lola’s “hair” in a “ponytail” on Saturday and I thought it was the funniest thing. Lola didn’t. IMG_4840Poor thing 😉


Alrighty, I have to do some studying. Meteorology is killing me. I love it, but it’s also pretty hard. meteo lab activity 1Take this map for example. I had to “translate” it for a homework assignment. Scary times. I should probably get  back to work now!


Did you experience warm weather this weekend?
