The Scoop

I guess I should give any new reader a little background info.

I’m a not-quite-40 year old, happily married, mother of two girls.  Becca and Chloe are six and four.  We moved to the ‘burbs about five years ago.  We live in a Maronda plan with some great neighbors.

We own Downey’s House (We being me, my husband Tony, his brother Joe and his wife Anita).  That is truly our third child.  We’ve always talked about owning our own bar and restaurant, and it’s still a bit surreal that we’ve actually done it.

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh.  When I say ‘Pittsburgh,’ I really mean PITTSBURGH.  City resident.  Graduated from a city school (Langley).  And yes, I made it out alive :)

My folks are retired and live in Florida.  I work from home (doing payroll and such for the restaurant) and take care of the kids.  Being a Work at Home Mom is tough.  I also have some ventures online, which I’ll list on a ‘links’ page soon.
