Why I love my car...

Last week, I went to Pittsburgh to visit my grandma, who recently had her hip replaced (and is doing so great!!).  I drove all the way there and almost all the way back before filling up my gas tank in Toms Brook.  I got a whopping 41.7 miles per gallon.  Woohoo!!

Free Coffee!

McDonald's in our area has free coffee from 5-9 a.m. for the whole month of February and you don't even have to buy anything else!  You just drive up and tell them you'd like a free coffee.  You can even get iced coffees if that's your thing.

Personally, I think BK has MUCH better coffee than McDonald's, but I'll take whatever I can get if it's FREE!!

Meet the coolest kid ever

Meet Ricky, the kid who comes over every Tuesday and plays guitar with Reber.  Recently, he also loves the microphone and makes up his own songs.  He was born oxygen-deprived and is a little miracle.  When we met him, he was really shy and didn't talk much.  Sometimes he's still a little hard to understand but his personality has really started to shine through and he talks with us all the time now.  He especially loves Reber and they are always joking around.  I'm so proud of both of them!!

We Did It!!!!

No more crap from Cowboys fans for us....the Steelers are America's team!!  Go Steeler Nation!!  That's enough gloating for me.  I'm such a girl though, because I always feel bad for the losing team (unless it's the Ravens).  I know they get paid millions but they're still people.  But I sure love my STEELERS and will always be ecstatic when they win a thrilling game like that.

Oh and check out these cookies that my brother brought to share with us.  They were Fed-Exed from Pittsburgh and were delicious.
