Hi all! Hope your week is going well! Mine is flying by!

Probably because of the weird things that have been happening this week. Monday was a normal work day, but Tuesday I left work early because we were having some plumbing problems. One of our pipes froze and caused water from the shower and the washing machine to back up. It wasn’t as bad as we thought, just had to dry out the carpet in the basement with some fans. Phew, no major issues!

Then yesterday my co-worker and I went to a school to talk to students about working in a veterinary clinic, interviewing, having an externship, etc. I was a little nervous at first, but I really enjoyed myself!

I will be going into work this evening, but I just wanted to put up a post with some new things that I have been enjoying!

The Pittsburgh Skyline will never get old, even when it is overcast–I can’t get enough!

It must be a “Burgh Thing”


I can’t remember where I saw that little gem, but I love it! I don’t speak too much “Pittsburghese” but there are some terms that I say every now and then.

Santa brought me an Apple TV, and I love being able to access Netflix in my room. Perfect for lazy days!


My Mom and I went out to dinner the other night (Hibachi!) and I tried gelato for the first time, it was pretty good, but definitely could get addicting, I will be saving this for special occasions. I tried the mint chocolate chip and reese’s mix…


I have been making an effort to start doing more yoga, and the other night it was so nice to just turn on OnDemand and get my “om” on! The flowers and candle are definitely a nice add on. The quote on the plate says “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain”. Love it!


I also got a new balance ball, since Garrett thought my old one was a squeak toy (RIP). and tried these two workouts from Self! My abs were burning so much during that work out! Phew!


If you haven’t tried Dr. Weil’s Kale Salad yet–you must! It is so good, and it keeps well in the fridge! I make a big batch and the flavor gets better every day!


What new (or old) things have you been loving lately?

Any new workouts you have found?

Until next time…

I know that I have been slacking on this “blog more often” challenge, but with working and trying to find my “big kid” job–this has taken a back burner.

I have been back from vacation for a 9 days now, and it hardly feels like I did any relaxing at all! Work had been insane and understaffed, so we have all been a little…stressed.

I know I had a post right before vacation asking where I should go..so I figured I would do a little photo recap of what we did!

We ended up having to take a ferry into VT because the bridge had been destroyed by flood waters over the spring….

Garrett was very well-behaved the entire trip–but especially in the car, seeing at it was a 10 hour drive!

The landscapes while driving were just breathtaking!

We spent the first day pretty much just taking in the cabin and hanging out by the dock–the sound of the water was just what we needed!

Garrett really wanted to play with all the sticks, but he wouldn’t get fully in the water! Doesn’t he know that is what Labs are supposed to do?!

My cousin Alli came to visit us, but I didn’t get a picture :(.

We went to visit the Wildflower Farm and Shelburne Vineyards on Monday–the wildflowers were pretty, but not as fun as anticipated (I think it would be more exciting in Spring). But the vineyard tour was really fun–and of course the wine wasn’t too bad either!


The next day we spent the day doing tourist like things as well…

Of course we visited Ben & Jerry’s! It was so much fun–and it didn’t hurt that you get free samples! 🙂 The weather was pretty amazing all week but it was particularly sunny for ice cream day!

 I heard about the Red Onion sandwich from Tina, so we decided to make a bee-line there for lunch when we were visiting the shops at Burlington!

It was just what we needed to trek on with our exploring!

This is what we got to watch every night from the dock–couldn’t have asked for a better view!

 Overall, it was just a very relaxing trip with just a few touristy things thrown in.

I definitely miss my off leash morning runs with Garrett down the causeway.

And I think he misses all of the giant “sticks” to play with  (even though we did bring two of his favorites home as a souvenir! 😉 )

“Please Mom, can’t I keep this one??”

I took over 250 pictures. So I had to just pick some of my favorites! It was an awesome time and I hope to go back one day!
