Being connected...

Written by
The struggle is real with these teens, y'all. I have three - 16, 14 & 12 (not technically a teen, but she's 12 going on 21.) I hear people say all the time, "These kids today...",  "Back in our day my mom would have..." fill in the blank with a million different things our moms would have done and ways our childhood was different. Let me tell you about "Back in MY day...". There was no internet. like, NO INTERNET. Plus, once there was an internet, only a few of my friends had it at their house. Only a few…

Saying goodbye to Ellet High School

Written by
Yesterday was the final walk through of Ellet High School before the wrecking ball arrives. It looked old, and tired, but it was still full of people, joy and so many memories. I graduated from Ellet High School in 1995. I loved high school. I loved MY high school.  I walked through with my best friend since middle school, Mary. I'm so glad we did it together. We may have found an orange permanent marker in the bottom of my purse while we were there and left one last memory on a few of the walls. We visited the auditorium. While…

It was a beautiful weekend in Columbus & I FINALLY got to see THE Ohio State marching band perform! Hubby & I were there to cheer on our son and the rest of the Copley Marching Band at the Buckeye Invitational on Saturday. 44 bands in all performed, we caught about half of them and they were all fantastic! We were there for Copley High School but had the pleasure of seeing a couple other local bands including the Massillon Tiger Swing Band & Wadsworth High School. It was a long day, but it was fun! Jason & I are…
If you know anything about me at all, I love cool little shops full of funky little things. One of my favorite little spots is Gypsy Grace And The Vintage Goat. It's located on Market Street down by Tangier. Stop in to see owners Angel & Joe. They have all sorts of off the wall hand crafted goodies. Angel finds things and thinks up some crazy ideas about how to make them new again. She tells Joe her idea, and he heads back to the workshop. If you haven't stumbled into this little shop, you have to check it out! …
Ok, I fell asleep just before the half last night, but I had fun watching the Brown beat up on The Jets! I know, The Jets were missing a few key players, but I don't care. We saw a more disciplined Browns team last night. And THAT OBJ CATCH!!! If you were out to any WONE events last summer, or part of the WONE Bowling League, you probably know Cami Justice. Cami LOVES sports, and earlier this year it became her full time job writing about sports for News Channel 5. I just wanna brag a little on Cami, and…

Just a Yankee Peddler, Yard Sale Junkie

Written by
Don't you just love a good find? I'm all about the hunt. I woke up early Saturday morning with a mission. I was going to find the treasures at the giant neighborhood sale in Copley. I grabbed Ravenna (because she is the only other person awake early on a Saturday at my house) and we were off! Mostly, we found baby stuff. LOTS of baby stuff. NO THANK YOU! But we found a new pull behind golf caddy/cart thing for my son's clubs, a cute doily and a little bird that made me happy. (see bird & doily below.) Then…
