first time in a long time..

welp this is where i here are updates on life lately.

pittsburgh holds things i love like..bubble teas[from rose tea], Italian ice, incredible consignment shops, bakeries [tons to chose from], parks parks and more parks, snow, construction junction, imadeit, oh yeah![its fabulous ice cream],the strip district, paris 66, urban outfitters, kards unlimited and $5 movie nights.

there is much more i could list but this stuff is the most important in my opinion.
feel free to add some. i love trying new places and things.

one of the most important things pittsburgh holds for me is incredible people.
people i know i will keep in touch with after this experience is over.
some of which i don't know how i would've made it through this year without!:)

last week at bible study was told the most interesting fact...
pastors wives do not have pastors. this really is sticking with me.
so the women i am meeting in seminary will be my go to women.
they are who i confide in and trust and it will only grow after we get a church.

there is so so much that i have learned about myself and shea this year.
i am excited to see what's up next for our family.
one of the things that is new for me this year is numerous girlfriends.
which is sooooo not my norm. i usually have a max of two not including my sister.
i feel like since our move here. i have ten or so which is nuts and i love it.
another difference here is i really feel like i am having an impact.

i hope to one day be able to work a half day at a "real job"
then the second part of the day go into "my studio" and create.

oh and my wants for after our graduation from seminary are..
a real bed with a headboard and footboard.
our anniversary that year going to disney.
my art stuff to have its own space.
a video camera..maybe a real camera.

ok folks this is my new deal. i want to keep this up.

i will post crafts i am working on and even some for you to work on.
also here i will post updates to my etsy page.

stay warm.

YAYYY You have a blog! (It's meeeee Kellyyyy!)

I'm really excited for you! Can you explain why it is that Pastor's wives don't have pastors? (I was curious to know the ins and outs of that and whys - is it because you're married to one?).

Support when you're far from home is the most important thing anyone could ask for - I'm so happy you have it!

P.S. You forgot to mention Pitt has the STEELERS!!! :) *wink*!

lauren no i did not. i just never saw you as a blogger. you are more secretive.

kelly..haha the steelers too! :o]

we dont have pastors as a congregation a pastor is a go to person that you can talk about problems with. Like problems at home which would be like venting to the person who hears all your stuff. yes it is bc i am married to the pastor. so at whatever church we go to shea will be the pastor and i cant talk to a congregation about their pastor. i cant ever really talk..i will always have to filter everything. does that make sense?
