How To Live Your Best (Vacay) Life In Pittsburgh

This time around, my husband and I went on a Memorial Day weekend excursion, and drove to Pittsburgh for my 5th visit. I live for a 3 day weekend.  Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend, I am usually out of town.  Sadly, I’ve never worked a job where I had Martin Luther King Day off, and every year I wonder if being a teacher was my true calling.

First Time in L.A. - My Current Top 3

So, I was surprised by the weather.  The first couple of days, it was too cold and foggy to go to the water.  Was it fog, or was it smog?

How Dare She: That Time I Went To NYC Alone

Jen and I took a Lyft to Queens to go the Meadows Fest. Citi Field Stadium was packed by the end of the night, and we were literally holding hands so that we wouldn’t lose each other.  I’m generally not a fan or large crowds, but I was in such a good headspace, hanging with friends, watching some of my favorite artists, eating carnival food, and sipping cocktails, that it really didn’t bother me much.
