Weekend Shenanigans!

This post was intended for Monday after last weekend.. But here I am Saturday finishing it up.

I wanted to tell you about last weekend.. So I’m still going to!

Our weekend started Thursday night, kind of. We decided somewhat last minute to head to Cleveland for a Rise Against concert. Rise Against is a punk band we’ve followed for years now. It was awesome to see them in a new city. We stayed at an Airbnb where we left Stella, and Ubered (that is a verb now right?) it to the concert. After the concert we hit up a couple of bars in Ohio City (a community of Cleveland) before heading back to the house. We were up early to head back to Pittsburgh! A quick but fun trip!


Friday I worked, Todd did school stuff. We hung out in Pittsburgh Friday night which was really fun but our plan of going to bed early didn’t work.

Saturday morning we drove to Annapolis to meet our friend Nick and check out the Navy football game. We crashed a 10 year college reunion (kind of – not really). It was awesome.. free food and beer all day.


It was so fun to see the stadium and see some of the Naval Academy traditions.



Sunday we went to brunch and then hit the road back to Pittsburgh. It’s a 4.5 hour drive, but a pretty one!

There are these things called Turnpikes over here .. Like toll roads but expensive and not optional.. At least that I know of. That was a learning experience. On the way back from Cleveland, the Ohio turnpike took the rest of our cash and then 5 minutes later we hit the Pennsylvania turnpike! Luckily I had my checkbook otherwise I’m not sure what would’ve happened…

On the way to Annapolis we bought an EZ Pass, you place it on the windshield, load money on it and then you don’t have to worry about carrying enough cash. For reference, on the way home from Annapolis, the PA turnpike tole was $15.

This is probably normal to so many people.. Just humor me as we are continuously learning. 🙂

All in all fun times seeing more of the East Coast!

We are planning a trip to NYC over Thanksgiving. Thinking Airbnb, Thanksgiving parade, running in Central Park. Any suggestions?

Oh! We booked our flights to Patagonia for December!! Big news! It’s getting real! Now it’s time to plan what we do! So excited!

Hope you’re having a great weekend so far. Todd and I had a little date night out last night. Ate Thai food and then went to see Gone Girl. It’s tough watching a thriller knowing how it ends. (We both read the book). But I think it was entertaining.

Today I ran 7.5 miles training for the Pittsburgh 10-miler. It was somewhat sluggish but I made it out and back before the rain, so that’s a win in my book!

Now I’m doing laundry.. Ugh.

Any exciting weekend happenings??
