Two years without Fur

Life

This is going to be a really serious post for me, since it's about my old cat Marble. I lost her 2 years ago in October to old age. She was 16 years old.   I still miss her to this day. I think about her a lot and I know that I'll never really be able to replace her in my heart. Though, I do want more cats. I…

Trip to the Zoo

Life

It might come as no surprise but I love animals, and therefore I like going to zoos. I have a friend who volunteers at the zoo, so I get to learn a lot about how they work and the animals! They also provide wonderful photo ops! (When you don't get pushed around by all the children) And me trying to feed the angry cat statue The foray into the petting…

Tea Time

Life

I ordered some fan-based tea blends off of Beastly Beverages on Etsy recently. I've been anxiously awaiting its arrival and I couldn't wait to try them as soon as I found them in my little mail cubby!! Team Free Will!! Sure to be tasty I tried Dean's tea first, very smooth blend. A sweet yet earthy flavor with a smidgen of a smoky aftertaste I'd say. In other words, the…

Weird Collector

Life

Shot glasses, old cameras, blind box figures, and pokemon cards oh my! I certainly have a weird variety of things that I collect. I guess it's to cover my wide array of hobbies and interests.  The shot glasses was actually a carry over from my parents, who used to always buy one everywhere we went. One day I sorta took over the collection wordlessly and bought myself one every time…

From Sarah: Erie Adventure with Jess!

Life, Local Flavor

Jess already made a post about our adventures in Erie, but I’ll also let you in on my side of the story. I don’t know if I was more excited about seeing the ships at the Tall Ships Festival or eating all the food at Pufferbelly’s.  DELICIOUS Although I did have one problem, despite the great food and the adorable deserts, I was greatly disappointed when I came to the…

Erie Adventure with Sarah!

Life, Local Flavor

The flea market might have been a bust, but there was more fun to be had in Erie! I got to have brunch with Sarah and we even got to attend the Tall Ships festival there! So many pretty sail boats!  There was a lovely brunch bar at The Pufferbelly in Erie that had an omelette station! The desserts though, were without a doubt the most fantastic part of the…

Flea Market (mis)Adventure!

Life, Local Flavor

Today I braved the drive to Erie, PA to attempt to help at a flea market with my parents. Needless to say, the weather wasn't really on our side. This is Waterford, PA. George Washington stopped here once upon a time...or at least that's what my parents told me. I've been to this flea market before in the past. It's super fun and there is always a lot of stuff.…

Student to Student

Life

Once upon a time I was a student in university for business, specifically accounting, until I realized that even though I was good at math...my bright yellow book bag, hair bows, and cat adorned binders didn't seem to sit well with my accounting peers. (Everyone else seemed to have black monogramed briefcases that they brought to class, almost as if I showed up to a party in costume when everyone…

Art Show!

Life, Local Flavor

This weekend was the art show in my neighborhood (Shadyside)! Of course, I had to go check it out! I went last year and loved it, there were so many good artists to check out! I'm a huge fan of anything like this, art shows, street shows, farmers markets, fairs, etc. You name it! One of the artists brought their kitty! It was too sweet! Just sitting there watching everyone!…

Gnocchi for Dinner!

Life

Today we home cooked our dinner! I'm not really a big cook even though I have a lovely kitchen! (I should really try to cook more often!) Sarah wanted to make Gnocchi, the Southern Italian variety! That means that it's made with cheese instead of potato! It's super good and only needs three ingredients! Plus it's fun to make with a friend, or a significant other It's easy to make.…
