We are VERY  active and involved  with our boys sports.. TONS of baseball with the older boys and Soccer for Charlie
My favorite place on earth is Disney World… I love being with my family! I love to go to the beach, read, shop, LOVE the outdoors, amusement parks, art & crafts.. LOVE to dance.. I am a sucker for old architecture(old school building, historic homes) could spend hours touring and taking it all in.

.favorite shows are Parenthood & NCIS..
LC: Tell us some of your favorite things about growing up in Levittown…
Shea; Favorite thing about growing up in Levittown was the street where I grew up… we had so many kids/friends on our block & in the immediate sections that we always had something to do.. a few favorites. Swimming in the Brook Pool, man hunt, riding our bikes, going to the shopping center, walking to the old Levittown Eastern for Big League Chew bubble gum.. it was simple, but I wouldn’t change a thing, but always fun!!! My mom was great.. she always let the neighborhood hang out at our house.. we would play basketball on the driveway, listen to music as we got older. And when those street lights came on.. that was it.. we scattered until the next day!!!!! We had great neighbors. Most had been there as long as the house had been. I always felt safe.. I knew someone would be there if I needed help. I didn’t even own a house key until I moved into my own house b/c we never locked the door.. we didn’t have to!!
LC;  Thanks Shea, lastly, tell us what you like about our Levittown Comfort page…
Shea; I like following the Levittown Comfort page b/c I keeps me up to date with all the happenings in the area. I like to see the events that get posted and local news.. Also, the contests and pictures keep our scary world, light! Keeps it simple.. like it used to be.. we need more of that!!
Thanks so much for sharing Shea !!

Texting & Driving, really??

I know we are living in a world of technology. I get it! What I don’t get is how can people still drive and text after all of the horrible accidents and innocent lives that have been lost by this ridiculous practice. I must admit, I have glanced at a text that I received while at a red light. It’s never something that is so urgent, that it cannot wait until you arrive at your destination. I had an overwhelming feeling of guilt and have since made a promise to myself that I will not even look at a text until I am safely off of the road.

Levittown’s, Kelli Haskins, Needs Your Vote to Win the Pillsbury Bake Off!

Kelli Haskins Pillsbury Bake Off Levittown Bensalem E-HouseWe had the great fortune last night to meet up with Levittown’s, Kelli Haskins, at the E-House in Bensalem where she was giving out samples of her Smoky Chorizo Pizza, a top 100 finalist recipe in the Pillsbury Bake Off.

“I took things I do already and incorporated it in a seven ingredient recipe,” she said. “I like to take flavors that people aren’t familiar with and present them in a familiar way to open the door for them. I used great ingredients from Spanish cooking—chorizo, sherry vinegar, peppers—and put them in a pizza recipe,” she said.

Growing up in Levittown: Remember Gaudio’s?

If you grew up in Levittown, you remember the house in Kenwood with the living room window display at Christmas time. Growing up in Levittown, it became a family tradition for many.

We spent many Christmases stopping by to see the Kenwood House. This wasn’t your everyday holiday decorating. This house was not a drive-by. The house on Kenwood Drive was a house that demanded to be seen, up close.
