Nothing to do this summer?

If you think there is nothing to do in Pittsburgh you are wrong!

Yes, there are actually things you can do in our fair city. Continue reading


End of the rope

We all know this feeling.

You’re stressed, the kids haven’t stopped screaming and fighting, you slept for a total of 4 hours last night because of work or staying up till 3 am reading Soulless by Gail Carriger and it was at least 80 your bedroom. (Awesome series by the way, I highly recommend it.) Continue reading

Shh…it’s the sex talk

Do you remember the talks as a kid/teenager? The embarrassment of sitting there while your mom (or dad) discussed the birds and the bees with you? Or the uncomfortableness of hearing your parents talk about penises (or is it peni?) and vaginas? I remember. It was the single (well…multiple) most awkward moment(s) of my pathetic teenage years. I hate the books, the pamphlets and just hearing the words penis and vagina coming out of my mother’s mouth. Thank God dad didn’t feel it necessary to give me talks either. That probably would have been even more embarrassing.

I remember sitting there going, “MOOOOMMMMMM!” But I endured and at least like to think I’m more informed on sexual situations because of it.

Did your parents have that talk with you? My mother did. At least once a month from the time I turned 12 until I was 18. I was a very well-informed teenager. I remained a…virgin…until I was almost 20. Oh, yes I did use that word. Virgin. Continue reading

Deadly words

A few days ago a friend posted the 5 Deadly Words a Woman could use. I had to borrow it for my blog and add a few more.

They made me giggle but they’re true. If you ever hear these words uttered by a woman, know you’re in trouble. These words are usually accompanied by arms being folded over the chest, hands on the hips, a tapping foot and/or narrowing of the eyes and a scowl on the face. If you see any of those followed by one of these phrases, you’re in big trouble. Continue reading

Dancing with Hines

Well, the City of Champs may not have won any sports trophies last season; however, our dear Hines Ward did bring home an award. Maybe not necessarily for Pittsburgh but it’s something that can help ease the pain of not having another Lombardi Trophy or Stanley Cup. (I’d rather have the Lombardi and Sir Stanley here in Pittsburgh…don’t think I don’t. And yes, I’m a huge sports nut. I’ll be posting TONS of sports things come fall when hockey and if there is a football season starts up.) Continue reading
