My Friday List #6: Favorite Things In Pennsylvania

So hello to my readers its been ages since I have posted but as you know I have been on vacation to Pittsburgh to take in some sights and see some very special people. So it is fitting that my Friday List this week is the top things I loved about Pittsburgh! I will recap the trip later so here is a short glimpse of the things I loved from our vacation:

1.Historcal Sights

I make it no secret that I am a huge history buff and somewhat of an addict especially when it comes to Colonization through the Industrial Revolution in America. So when Devin and I decide to make a trip I always say well lets go see this historical battlefield or even street sign. So Pittsburgh had  it all of within the confines of its downtown and beyond.

 Fort Pitt Blockade House in Downtown Pittsburgh

Fort Necessity in Farmington Pa

2. The Nature 

I know this is a weird title for this but it is true. The landscape of Florida is somewhat boring to me. Its flat and has no character to it and it seems less natural than other states. So Pennsylvania had it from mountains to streams I felt very one with nature.

3. Zombie Landmarks

For me being a zombie enthusiast George A. Romero is my hero. He recreated the genre and made it was it is today. He is from Pennsylvania and he filmed two of his most famous movies there. So I knew from the beginning we needed to seek out this spots. 
The first is where Night of the Living Dead was filmed, and the remake was filmed there too. 

and then there is where Dawn of the Dead was filmed: The Monroeville Mall. A quick side note, they has a zombie walk the day we visited but I was a couple hours to late to catch the action....

4. Seeing Special People

While in Pennsylvania we saw Devins Great Grandparents (to the left) and his Great Aunt and Uncle (we are in between them). We had a great time at lunch and hanging out on their porch in the nice weather. 

We also met up with my friend Chris and his blushing bride Jayde for a zoo/movie day and to watch True Blood. It was wonderful seeing them and it was a great way to end the trip

Thats it for the list! What are some favorite things from your past vacations?

Devin and I: The Engagement

The Story

From the moment I met Devin, I knew this was the man I was going to marry. It seems weird that at 18 years old that I knew that he was the one I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I mean come on my dad called him the guy with a beard forever :). After 3 years of dating, Devin took me to Disney to celebrate a new job that I had gotten at the airport. Now going to Disney was nothing new for us, he took me here for our first Valentines Day. We love this place its so magical and we always have a blast together. 

Now let me tell you I had no idea this was going to happen or that a week prior Devin sat on my parents couch and asked my parents for their permission to marry their only girl (super gentleman). We got to the park around 10am and spent the day riding rides and enjoying the magic. About 4pm Devin took me to this wishing well behind Cinderella's castle. He said, "I have some change in my pocket would you like to make a wish?" I am a sucker for making wishes let me tell you, I close my eyes and everything. So I did just that and I made a wish. 

When I opened my eyes, Devin was on one knee with the most beautiful ring I had ever seen! He said, "Breanna Nachelle Sisson I love you will all of my heart and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?" it was the happiest moment of my life. I cried said yes and the rest is history

Here are some photos from that day: 

After he proposed...a random couple stopped watched the action and took the photo.

Devin and I: the Dating Years

So this week is our 3 year wedding anniversary and to celebrate we are taking a trip to Pittsburgh. So I thought I would give you an insight to our relationship from: dating, to engagement ,to the wedding, to now.  I hope you enjoy the journey through our relationship!


Devin and I knew each other through mutual friends that we had from high school. We did not officially meet until I was in my first year of college. After hanging out a couple of times and getting to know each other  in November he finally asked me out on a date using a tee shirt and a bleach pen to write on it "will you be my boo". It was super cute and from that point on I was hooked!

Never Threw A Baby Shower Before....

On Thursday I hosted my first baby show for Courtnee, a sweet girl I work with at Starbucks. It was a surprise shower that we as a store orchestrated. All of the girls showed up early and we surprised her when she walked in! It was a wonderful time of games and spending time with friends. Heres a few pictures

It was a wonderful time with some wonderful ladies. Have you thrown any parties lately?

My Friday List #5: Guilty Pleasures

So I have a few things that I consider to be my guilty pleasures in life. Its not that I am ashamed of them I love every minute of them so here they are in a list. 

1. Pretty Little Liars (the book and the TV show)

Even though I just blogged about this book, which you can read here, I have to tell you its a major guiltily pleasure. This book/TV series has it all: blackmail, scandal, not knowing who to trust, and creepy text messages from a person/persons named A. I recommend either to read or watch the show it always has me on the edge of my seat.

2. Peanut Butter

Yep you read right, I am in love with peanut butter. I will eat peanut butter on almost everything, from ice cream to fruit. It is the best and I do not think I will ever tire of this delicious spread :)

3. The gLee Project

I love watching this show! It has everything gLee does but with an elimination round. Its fun to root for my favorites week after week and argue with Ryan Murphy's decisions on who to cut. 

4. Man V. Food

Adam Richman is a food God to me. Where ever he eats I must eat. Some call it an obsession I just say that I have a guilty pleasure for good food and TV. 

5. Pinterest

This website consumes a lot of my Mac battery life. Everyday I am trolling for new things to pin and new boards to create. I love finding new recipes to try, home decode ideas, fashion tips, and funny geek memes. This place plays to all of my different sides (a girl has to be multidimensional)! I have said this multiple times in this blog if your still a noob to Pinterest, I would become a winner and join now!

What are some of your guilty pleasures?
