March 31, 2014
{Pittsburgh, PA}

Biking on the trail!!  We have been getting hints of great weather every so often and I love it.  Every time it is decently nice, I make sure to get outside!  I hope this means better weather is coming more often now and we can finally be done with winter!  PS - I started my new job today at my old office at UPMC!

Fat Head's Brewery!  We've been meaning to visit this brewery forever!  We are obsessed with the Fat Head's Brewpub that we have in Pittsburgh, so we knew we'd love the brewery.  And of course, we did!  We will most definitely be back here again!!

Dinner and beers at Great Lakes Brewing Co!  We loved this place.  The beers are awesome, the food was great, it was in a cool little neighborhood, and they even had a beer cellar with a bar.  Hopefully we will be back someday!

Penn Brewery!  It's our first visit back since moving home from California.  We love it here.  Especially in the summer when they set tables up outside here on the cobblestone and have live music numerous times throughout the week.  We will definitely be back soon!

New hair cut!  My mom got me a salon gift card for Christmas and I fiiinally cashed it in.  I haven't gotten a hair cut in, um... over a year.  Oops!  My hair dresser was definitely happy to see me. :)  I love how healthy and fresh a new hair cut feels!

Yum!  We've been on a salad kick lately and I love it!  We've been doing a good job of grocery shopping early in the week and buying tons of fresh veggies so we can have a little salad with dinner every night.  I can't wait until summer rolls around so we can do all our shopping at farmers markets!  Counting down the days...

March 23, 2014
{Pittsburgh, PA}

I love live music!  What began as a pretty lazy Sunday, ended up being a ton of fun.  We ate dinner at our favorite local thai place, then headed down to Thunderbird Cafe in Lawrenceville for some live bluegrass music: Blind Owl Band.  Fun times!  I'm so glad we ended up going instead of just hanging home.  Ending the weekend on an awesome note is always a good idea!

March 22, 2014
{Pittsburgh, PA}

After a glorious run outside in the morning, Brett and I made our way down to the Strip District!  We stalked up on some favorite foods, ate street tacos, and also gave into the amazing sweets (chocolate covered pretzels and oreos!) that are always for sale outside of Penn Mac.  Delicious afternoon!  And later, we headed out to Tim & Chelsey's (my cousin) house for game night!

Friday!  We eased into the weekend with our own little "happy hour" complete with Brett's homebrew and an awesome jam session!  I even busted out the jembe for a while.  I really need to play it more often - it's just so fun!  And after a few beers, we made our way to Juniper Grill for a delicious late dinner.  Yum!

Happy first day of spring!  It was pretty chilly, but I made a point to get outside for my run today!  And during my run around the neighborhood, it started snowing... on the first day of spring... boo!  I am not impressed, Pittsburgh!  Where that beautiful spring weather?!

Rainbow!  I was working out inside at home, while Brett was running outside at the trail, when I got a call from Brett to 'go outside!'.  And when I did I was greeted with an awesome rainbow!  It had been raining all day long and right before it started getting dark we got to see this awesome rainbow.  Made me smile. :)

I love biking!!  Today was the first day of the year that we were able to get out our road bikes that we bought in California!  It was pretty chilly, but still an awesome ride along the Montour Trail.  It got me soooo excited to bike ride all spring/summer/fall long!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  It wasn't too wild of a day today... no green beer.  I worked, went to a doctors appointment, and then headed over to my grandma's place for a visit.  My mom and cousin Jill also came to visit, along with Jill's tiny dog, Chi.  Grandma loves this dog!  Then on my way home, I picked up a pizza for dinner and we ended up with 2 extra large pizzas because they forgot to make my pizza originally... and now we have way too much pizza!  Really random day... ha!

Today's weather was glorious!  I had off work and I spent some time on the trail running all afternoon.  Then, in the evening, Brett and I drove up to Mercer to meet his parents and sister for dinner.  And of course, on the way home we just had to stop at North Country Brewing Co (pictured above).  I mean, it was practically on the way home! ;)

Happy birthday Brita!!  After work, I raced home, changed, and met up with some of the gals in the fam (Mom, Brita, and Aunt Deb) for Zumba!  So fun!  And then we headed back to my parent's house for dinner and some birthday treats.  I can't believe my baby sister is 20 years old... time flies!

Day 70

March 11, 2014
{Pittsburgh, PA}

Today felt much like yesterday in the sense that as soon as I got home from work, I was headed straight to the trail.  Today was even warmer than yesterday and made my run outside even that much more enjoyable!  And after my run, I jumped in my car, rolled the windows down, and put on some Jack Johnson for my cruise back home.  Happiness!  When I got home, Brett had all the windows open in the house and was relaxing on the side porch where I shortly joined him.  Ah, I cannot wait until we have this beautiful warm weather on the daily!  (I know it's not officially here quite yet...)

{Pittsburgh, PA}

The weather was absolutely gorgeous today!  As soon as I got home from work, I changed into my workout clothes and headed straight to the trail for an amazing run.  I literally could not have been happier to be outside running around in the sunshine.  It is seriously amazing what a little warm weather and sunshine can do for my mood.  I hope Spring is on its way!*
