Went for a lovely hike with my BF and some friends yesterday around Moscow & Daleville - check it out! What beautiful scenery we have here in PA! Side note: If anybody knows what that mystery plant is (that I'm pointing to amongst the rocks) let me know. We didn't recognize it. Thanks!
THANK YOU Mrs. Dructor from Moscow Elementary Center for inviting us to read to your class yesterday! They were SO FUN! What a great group of kiddos, so happy, and so well behaved! They all hugged me at once (which is officially the sweetest part of my 2015) and requested Dr.Seuss, which is one of my all time favorite authors!
Four very cool things have happened to me in the last week. I'll end with the most noteworthy. First, I had the pleasure of going to WWE Smackdown w my bro Andy, always a great time! We wanted to take a pic where we looked like a super tough badass tag team...
I think we nailed it. Then, celebrated by BFF's 30th birthday!!! Wow, Desiree you look absolutely gorgeous! And sorry, I couldn't get Nick Carter popping out of your birthday cake. I got you the next best thing: your husband holding a Salted Caramel Pretzel Shot.
Happy Birthday Des! Then, over the weekend, hit up Octoberfest with my boyfriend and some friends who may or may not have been in lederhosen...
Mawwww.... And FINALLY, the most life changing thing to happen to me all year (perhaps ever) is the discovery of Pecan Pie M&Ms!!!!! If you haven't tried these yet, hit up Target (or Walmart if you forgot your pants) and pick up a bag! Thank me later... nom nom nom
As we turn the page into September, I must admit FALL is my favorite season! Still hard to say goodbye to summer, warmth, bikinis, and sun though! Some of my favorite parts of August...
Giving away ONE DIRECTION meet and greets to the wonderfully ecstatic Lauren and her awesome mom Ann!!
Meeting little Lucy on location - I offered her a job. She's a natural!!
TV performance w my musical partner in crime Jackson Vee!! Thanks for having us back, WBRE TV!
Peach Fest at Montage w my boyfriend! Weather was perfect, crowd and all the bands = amazing.
I've gotten SO many good run/walks at Lake Scranton. Some w my boyfriend, some alone. It really is gorgeous there!!! Goodbye summer, I'll miss you! But I'll be enjoying the view at the lake waaaaay into fall. Those leaves are freakin' postcard material :) Happy August 31st!!!!
Just got back from Michigan, my lovely home state. Fortunately my brothers were able to make it home too, so my WHOLE family was under the same roof where we grew up (for the first time in 5 years). Pretty special! We have the best parents in the world and I appreciate SO MUCH them rearranging their lives & their house so we could all be together. Buckle up. I'm about to hit you with an excessive amount of family photos...
Me and my nephew Benjamin! Er....Spiderman I mean :)

My brother Andy in blue, Jason in green - all three of us say Paradise, MI is our favorite place on earth :)))) Just so happy we could all be together! Definitely the highlight of my summer!!
Wow, I cant believe it's July 7th already. I'd like to blame my pasty white skin on the fact that I'm a devout SPF disciple (which is true) but sadly, it's mainly because I haven't been outside enough! Work, work, work, gig, gig, gig, but I love love love it. Here are some highlights from the last couple weeks:
Played a super fun show at What's Brewin' in Old Forge - the owners KIDS came out (note the adorableness) and I gave them impromptu piano lessons while I was on break. Rory & Caden = ROCKED IT!
Then the next day, went to the BEACH with my friends!!!! :) Wildwood is heaven!
And finally, got to hang out with my bestie who lives in Temple, Danielle! She was our intern when I first started in 2010/2011, maybe you remember her. She was on air with us quite a bit. I'm still trying to convince her to move to Scranton and work for KRZ! Lol fingers crossed!!!
Wow, summer is off to a great start! Got to hang with two of my favorite people these last few weeks and I couldn't be happier! My brother Andy came in from Jersey to go to WWE with me (he's the first family member to see my new apartment - WOOT) and I got to have dinner with my friend Amber last night, whose wedding I'm in this October. Here's picture from both. If you have a hard time discerning who's Andy and who's Amber, well....you're not very bright. Yay summer 2015!!
Thank you to the kids at St.Mary's School in Dunmore for inviting us to their annual 5k for the second time! We had an absolute BLAST and hopefully raised tons of money for the school. Dave Bohman from WNEP was running with us, as was CHAMP from the SWB Railriders! What a fun day :)
