I Bet You Didn’t See This Coming…


I’ve never been good at keeping secrets of my own. I’m the kind of person that loves to spill the beans, can’t contain myself even if I try, and who is so overcome with excitement that I just have to tell SOMEONE, anyone.  

This time was very similar, but I managed to keep it a secret from those who the surprise was meant for. I’ve held this secret in for 6 long months. Imagine, SIX.LONG.MONTHS. Finally, the day has come where I get to let you all in on my secret.

Yes you are seeing three and no, he we did not steal him. He’s allllllll mine. 

A Very Brazier Christmas!

We have spent 7 Christmas’s together, but what makes this one so special is that it is the very first Christmas in our own place!
 We bought our Christmas tree 3 post-Christmas season’s ago on a major sale to unload all of their Christmas trees. It was hiding in the attic of my mother’s place ever since just WAITING for the moment when it would be able to be ornament-ized. 
Shortly before Christmas we received a Christmas delivery from Adam’s family. I’m pretty sure Brady either: A. knew who it was from or B. knew that there was something in there for him. And by something in there for him I mean a few things. And by a few things what I really mean was that over half of the gifts were for him and Harvey. Spoiled!

2014: In Review

I’ve been struggling on whether to come back to blogging or just stay on blog vacation. I guess for now I will come back!

We found this great idea on Pinterest that we started this year. We grabbed an old spaghetti jar and throughout 2014 we would put pieces of paper of into the jar of the good things that happened to us. Things worth remembering and celebrating. This was a great way for us to look back and remember everything we did this year!

So here we have 2014 in review!

First and foremost we had the craziest winter in possibly a decade in the Lehigh Valley. It was the 5th snowiest winter ever recorded.

We Interrupt this Regular Programming for….

We are officially a two car family!

So, I We haven’t had much to say lately. Mainly because I am seriously exhausted on a daily basis! I’ve been waiting for a day to feel up to it to actually post about this. Between my thyroid (I feel like I can NEVER get enough sleep), waking up early (never was a morning person), and working full time it’s been taking me a long time to adjust to this new job. There are not enough hours in the day for sleep. That’s all I’m gonna say.

For those of you who don’t know (and there are many I’m sure) Adam and I shared a car since I got my drivers license. I was working my part time job 30 minutes away and Adam was having to travel to NJ for his job. Since I needed that car he ended up being allowed to expense a car. Rental cars and gas on works dime? Sure! Why not?!

My Love for All Things Mascot…

Here is a little tidbit about myself: one of my most favorite things EVER are mascots. What am I five years old? Might as well be! Disney? Chick-fil-a? Sports Games? Amusement Parks? Anything, you name it. I’m all over it. I love mascots!

I get it! They aren’t real. They are people dressed as characters to entertain children so that they do not get bored and to give out lots of hugs. Nothing about them is real. Still, I love it. In fact, I like to go as far as to think that it is the character and not a person in there. FeFe is kissing a kid on the head and you get an instant “oh my godddd FeFe is so cute! Look at her kissing that baby!!!” No, there’s not person in that costume. It’s FeFe. 100% FeFe.

At the suite last year I really bonded and connected with one of the mascots, FeFe. Here I was sitting outside the suite “watching” the game (because Lord knows, I never really watch the game) and then sweet little FeFe came rolling in. No really…she was on a tricycle. She waved me over to her, we embraced, and she gave me a kiss. Obviously I had to take a picture with her. I needed to commemorate this moment. It was like a match made in iron piggy heaven….

Unfortunately, I don’t think she remembers me. I witnessed her shaking her fanny in some guys face at the last game a few rows in front of me. Awkwardd…..clearly the love we had was not mutual.

Here’s me and FeFe. I really hope there was a girl underneath that costume. A guy kissing me on the cheek and hugging me might just be a little weird….or is it weird that I’m HOPING FeFe was a girl after all. That’s debatable.
