Not As Abandoned As It Appears

While Jeremy and I were staying in Peoria briefly last year, we got the chance to go down to Alton, Illinois for the evening for a talk by one of my favorite paranormal authors. While we were down there I had hoped to have a chance to drive by today’s topic but unfortunately an accident caused us to run later than we were planning. Maybe when we go back to Illinois for our friends’ wedding we can stop by the McPike Mansion.  Continue reading Not As Abandoned As It Appears

Absolutely Fireproof

Have you ever had a sense of dejavu? The whole time I researched today’s topic, I had a constant since that I have researched this before and written this post before. To the point that I went post by post on my blog to make sure I hadn’t written about this location. Even then I felt like “I’ve done this before” and went through my giant binder of notes I have written for all of my previous blogs posts and podcasts. Not only do I have no notes on this location but this location hasn’t appeared on any of my lists for topic ideas. I’m flummoxed. I guess I have just read and watch so many shows that talk about that the history of Nederlander Theatre just seems so familiar to me.  Continue reading Absolutely Fireproof

This Week’s Theme: Illinois

This week on the blog we are heading back to my old stomping grounds of Illinois!!! Can you believe its been 5 months since we left Illinois for good? How time flies when you’re in a warmer location. I do miss some things about Illinois, mainly the friends we made but overall we are happier in California. The two places I have planned for this week are places I wanted to go check out but wasn’t able to. They are locations that have fascinated me and I think they will be of interest to you too.  Continue reading This Week’s Theme: Illinois

The Road To San Diego

If you follow my social media at all, you know that this move has been insanely chaotic. We were suppose to be out here months ago. In fact our entire house in Seymour, IL was packed up on July 15th. At the time we were planning on staying in a hotel for a week until Jeremy checked out of his command. A few days after the movers came, we found out that Jeremy wouldn’t be able to check out as planned because there was an issue with his re-enlistment that hadn’t been approved yet. Continue reading The Road To San Diego

And We Are Back!!!

It has been a crazy few months since I have last posted on here. Between the move, setting up our house, and exploring San Diego, I have been busy on other projects. I had started a second blog but realized that I hate having two blogs especially since I think a lot of y’all would enjoy the posts that I have been sharing over there. They aren’t exactly paranormal related but they are our lives, experiences, and housewife related stuff. Over the next few days, I’ll be posting those blogs on this website and shutting down that blog. I will also be having the paranormal posts as well. I hope y’all like the new posts and more of an insight into our lives.  Continue reading And We Are Back!!!

Haunted Horror Film & Paranormal Investigation Festival

As you know, two weekends ago I attended the Haunted Horror Film & Paranormal Investigation Festival. If you know me at all, you can tell just by the title of the festival that this festival is perfect for me because it combines two of my favorite things- horror movies and paranormal stuff. Add in the fact that it was taking place at a haunted location and in a town I have been wanting to visit for a while because of its history. Continue reading Haunted Horror Film & Paranormal Investigation Festival

How Many Ghosts Haunt Here?

The subject of today’s post was one that was sent to me via Instagram. Thank you, James H. for recommending this topic. He said this was a location that he visited as a child and remembered hearing other kids playing on the second floor, but he and his sister were the only kids visiting the house at the time. I had not heard of this house before he recommended it and it was fun to research to it. If you have a place, cryptid, or urban legend you want me to talk about on here, please let me know. I am always looking for new topics to research and learn about. You can either let me know in the comments below, message me on one of my social media pages, or email me.  Continue reading How Many Ghosts Haunt Here?

Exploring Springdale Cemetery

While researching the previous post, I was introduced to Springdale Cemetery. Springdale Cemetery is a very large, very old cemetery about 20 minutes from where we are staying. Jeremy went with John Paul and I to check out it while we were looking for Dr. George Zeller’s grave for the previous post on this blog and we were not ready for this cemetery at all. Even with directions to the gravesite, it took us over 10 minutes to drive to where he was buried.  Continue reading Exploring Springdale Cemetery

Kindness Is The Best Medicine

So far the week that I have spent in Peoria, I really love it here. There has been a lot to see and do. I have been keeping busy with checking out everything. One of the places I was most excited to check out was the Peoria State Hospital and not just because of the paranormal aspect.  Continue reading Kindness Is The Best Medicine

Beware What Stalks The Woods…

It seems like everywhere I turn lately (especially places like TikTok and Facebook), someone is talking about Wendigo or Skinwalkers. While similar and often confused to be the same thing, they are actually two different Native American folklore. I will devote a post diving into what a Skinwalker for a later date. Today’s post is all about Wendigoes and their lore. Mainly because Jeremy and I may have encountered one a few weeks ago.  Continue reading Beware What Stalks The Woods…
