One Month

On Saturday, it had been exactly one month since we drove to New Philadelphia, Ohio to pick up Miss Maggie.

I know if seems silly, but I honestly didn't know that in 30 short days I could love something as much as I adore her. She is such an integral part of JP and I's family and life in Pittsburgh wouldn't be the same without her. JP and I were discussing the other day about how with her, it feels like we are more of a family. Our lives revolve not only around ourselves, but around Maggie who we care about deeply. We plan outings around when she'll be tired so she won't be so sad in her cage and instead of sitting around watching TV all Sunday, we'll go on a walk, out to the trail or to a park. She's so much fun to be around and I'm so thankful that I have her company each day when I'm working at home. It can be lonely only talking to everyone on the phone and through e-mail! If I'm feeling sad or lonely, she always cheers me up. She keeps up my energy and knows how to put a smile on my face, make me mad and drive me crazy.



We were watching cupcake wars on Saturday which inspired me to make some cupcakes to celebrate us having Maggie. For us to eat of course!


In honor of Maggie :)


The fam! She doesn't like to look into the camera. She says it makes her eyes look funny.


Being silly


Snuggling with mom.

On Saturday morning, JP and I headed south towards Washington, PA to go to the outlets! Outlets = already reduced prices. President's day weekend = even more sales. Outlets + President's day weekend = very happy Amy! I got some cute new tops and a new pair of running capris for when the weather warms up a bit and for my race at Disney this weekend!

On the way to and from the outlets, we realized that we're only 15 minutes away from home! How cool is that?!


Almost to Houston!


Welcome to Houston, PA. Cute little town. I wish I could have gotten some more pictures of all of the pretty houses on the hillside, but there were too many trees.


I thought this bridge was cool and it was just past Houston and my camera was out so enjoy. I like bridges a lot. Probably why I wanted to be a civil engineer.

One last thing I have for everyone is the 2nd piece to my basement workout area decor. It's a little bit different then I anticipated, but I think it turned out great!

I took my race numbers from a few different half marathons, 10Ks and 5Ks and put them all together. Then I used my Runner's World magazine to find some inspirational quotes and phrases.The 3 main inspirational quotes are:
  1. Endurance never sleeps.
  2. Even if you're inches away from the finish, never take success for granted.
  3. When all else fails, start running.
It was way different then I had initially intended for one of the canvases, but I fall in love more each time I see it!

Anyway, I hope that everyone has a wonderful President's day whether you have it off or not. I was lucky, JP, not so much! Until next time...

With love and God bless,
Amy, JP and Maggie
