I’m still getting over it

I’m still getting over the Steelers loss to those dirty birds (i.e. The Baltimore Ravens) yesterday.  The rivalry between the Steelers and Ravens goes back decades (and even my family is a house divided), and I was really hoping the Steelers would pull out a win since they were only trailing by one point at half time.  But alas, they did not, and my Steelers jersey will go into my closet until next season.

Sorry for the glasses in that pic…I got my eyes checked yesterday and I didn’t feel like putting my contacts back in.  Plus it’s really hard to see when your pupils are so big that you look like a cartoon character. I did actually improve in my vision .25 on each eye, so that’s always a plus!

Crazy (but corrected) eyes

I also pampered myself a little bit yesterday before the eye appointment and got my hair done. Since my last hair cut was in August, I was long overdo.  My stylist probably cut around four inches off and gave me a ‘modern bob’ cut…which she made very slight since I’m not good with changing my hair.  I did go darker and replaced some of my blonde highlights with red and brown.  Overall I’m pleased with the result:

New Hair!

But anywho, my workout today will consist of cleaning the house because my sister is coming to stay with Andrew and I tomorrow evening on her way back to Florida 🙂  She wanted to meet my classmates, so I’m also having a girls night with about 15 lbs of chocolate/chocolate related food items, so it should be fun.  Hope you all have a great Sunday!


Favorite football team?

Do you wear glasses/contacts?












A House Divided

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a great thanksgiving! We spent the day before thanksgiving and most of thanksgiving with Andrew’s family in Hershey, PA. But the Steelers were playing the Ravens that evening so we made our way to my parents house to watch the game.

Our family dynamic is very interesting because my mom (born and raised in Baltimore, MD) is a Ravens fan, while my Dad (who lived in Pittsburgh, PA most of his childhood) is a Steelers fan. I have always been a Steelers fan…and I mean always…like in the 1990s when they were horrible. My sister tends to go to the team that most recently won a Superbowl, so she’s currently a Ravens fan. Dad and I just told her to stay there (hehe…love you Sara!). Andrew is currently a Ravens fan too because he cheers for the team in the city he’s currently in (and plus mom made him asked him to be a Ravens fan after we got married).  So the Ravens fans watched the game in the basement and Dad and I didn’t watch the game, fearing that us watching it will cause the Steelers to lose.




Well the Steelers came up short at the end, with the final score of 20-22, Ravens.  It was a great game, and my throat still hurts from screaming.  I don’t know if the Steelers will make it into the playoffs this year (I’m thinking no), but the fact that we beat the Ravens earlier this season makes me a feel a little better (it’s so hard being a Steeles fan in Raven Nation!). 


Did you watch football on Thanksgiving? What games were you excited to watch?
