From My Window Seat #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot

window seat

  13 days. 6 planes. Approximately 31 hours of travel time, between airplanes and cars. One exhausted blogger. I’ve had a fabulous, whirlwind 2 weeks. I wouldn’t trade any of the experiences I’ve had these past 2 weeks (like the Thor-me-Captain America sandwich or the time I spent on the set of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. […]

San Diego Zoo #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot

San Diego Zoo

  I know what you’re probably thinking. Didn’t she JUST post about going to Los Angeles Zoo? Yes, I did. And then, after my #AvengersEvent #MonkeyKingdom trip was over, I drove down to San Diego to spend a couple of days with family.   Apparently, I didn’t get enough of zoo animals (and let’s face […]

Legends Plaza #AvengersEvent #PSF


  It’s a late night. I’ve flown across the country, attended the very first screening of the new Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now I desperately need to sleep. But first…2 night time pictures from Legends Plaza at Disney Studios, where we saw the movie. I can’t say anything about the movie quite yet, except […]

Day Trip to Gettysburg #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot

Gettysburg Pennsylvania

  This past Saturday, the kids and I got together with some old friends (two families that we share lots and lots of memories with) and spent a very cold March day in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. We spent a lot of our time looking through the amazing new museum and even more time in our car, […]

The Newest Bear Scout #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot


  When my oldest son, now 14, was starting cub scouts years ago, I was his den leader. I was involved in every step of his progress. Now that my younger son (almost 10) is in cub scouts, my husband is his den leader, and so I have literally not been involved in his cub […]

Just Another Barbershop Weekend #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot

Afterglow Quartet

  This past weekend was the yearly Barbershop Youth Adjudications for my daughter’s quartet (along with the adult International Prelims) in Harrisburg, PA. I was lucky enough to be able to spend the weekend as the quartet mom (aka world’s best chaperone), tagging along on all of their adventures in Pennsylvania. It was exhilarating and […]

A Change of Pace #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot

late sunset

  A funny thing happened today. I went outside three different times. And I didn’t wear a coat. Remember last week at this time? We were about to start snow day number 3 of the week and we were literally buried under feet of snow. I remember trying to drive somewhere last Friday and finding […]

Another Week, Another Snow Day (Or Three) #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot


  It’s getting old. The snow and the snow days and not having school. I do like turning my 5:00 am alarm off and catching a few extra hours of sleep. But oh my goodness. Being stuck inside for so many days…all 6 of us? It gets old. OK, enough complaining. Here are just a […]

Snow…And More Snow! #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot


  I have a confession. I got home from my youngest son’s Blue and Gold banquet about 2 1/2 hours ago, and the goal was to come straight up to my computer to get this post ready. But I have become completely distracted by a photo of a dress that most of you have probably […]

This Week on Instagram: #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot


  This week has not been one of my favorites. It’s cold. COLD. We lost power and ran out of milk and fuel for our kerosene heater. (PS – that’s an Amazon affiliate link to the heater we’ve got because I’ve discovered that tons of people don’t know what I’m talking about when I refer […]
