Hello there!  I’m here to share some fun stories, some struggles, talk, and find out more about you because that’s what I do!

I’ve wanted to start a blog for a long time now and after some planning, a lot of putting it off because it seemed overwhelming, and lots of encouragement and help from my brother…. HERE I AM!

As you follow me along my fitness journey here’s a few facts about me:

*I’ve been a teacher for 7 years*

I’m a bit biased, but third grade is my favorite.  From the growth in maturity to the curiosity in solving complex problems, it’s such a fun age!

*I’m still in active pursuit of becoming Jasmine at Disney World*

Okay, so I’m not sure how you define “active”, but I’ve told her personally that I want to be her when I grow up.


*I’m @doggieSteve’s Mom*

OOOOO isn’t he cute?!  Steve is a lab/pit mix that we rescued from The Animal Rescue League in Pittsburgh when he just a baby.  Steve will be 2 years old in June; he’s brought so much happiness and fun into our lives.


*I have an unhealthy obsession with Hello Kitty*

My poor roommates in college had to deal with the height of the obsession: bed linens, shower curtain, coffee maker, toaster, pajamas…. you name I probably have it.

*I’m so curious about the World*

The travel bug has bitten the boyfriend and me.  So far we have been fortunate enough to travel to England, France, Italy, Key West, Dallas, San Diego, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Colorado, and Orlando.

*I have the greatest support system in the World*

I’ve been blessed to be surrounded by intelligent, caring, and insanely fun family and friends.

Thanks for stopping by.  Check out my posts, follow me on Instagram, and ask questions!

Don’t forget, when life gets sticky don’t forget to have fun!
