weekend getaway: pittsburg

I love time spent away;
especially with my husband.
As of late, he's been working a lot...
& hasn't had an entire weekend off in what feels like months.
We decided to plan a mini getaway
since he had a weekend off coming up. YAY!
We wanted to go somewhere semi-close,
that we haven't gone to together.
 
Our list was narrowed down &
was it!

...so we packed our bags & away we went!
 
through quite a few tunnels of love. ;)

we made it & our room was incredible!
it had an old features with a modern feel.
 
we stayed at the Omni-William Penn, right in the city.

our hotel was very old & very charming. <3

+ fancy rugs everywhere!

SO many places to eat, such little time to do so.
this was our first stop: PRIMANTI BROS.
a pittsburg favorite

in my opinion: the best sandwich in pitt!

 i absolutely loved this wall!
 
view of the sunset from:
the andy warhol bridge
 
 

 
good greif; i'm so lucky for him!


we discovered the Andy Warhol museum was free on friday nights in march!
what a score; so we spent a good chunk of our evening there. it was so interesting.
 
 
& conveniently they had a photo booth there! SCORE!

we stopped at pittsburg popcorn for an evening snack;
holy moly--popcorn is my jam & this was delicious!
 

 
 
 it was so beautiful walking back over the bridge at night.

top of the morning to ya...
 
what we didn't fully realize;
it was st. paddys weekend--
in a big city....
needless to say it got crazy as the day went on.
 
we started out the day with some bagels + coffee
while we waited for the parade to start.
as you can see even our treats were in on the shenanigans. ;)


& so it begins...
 
 just the sound of bagpipes brings a smile to my face!
 
these pups made me miss old blue at home.

i spy a leprechaun!

what a pretty pretty pony!

these old brick buildings were beautiful.
i love seeing all the old signs painted on them.
 
 we hit up: shadyside:
[a quaint little area about 15minutes from the city]
 
pinch patrol ;)

we decided to drive up to the outlook... 
 

 boy, was it worth it!
 
what a view! (hubba-hubba)
 
we were so fortunate to have such nice weather friday & saturday!

our final stop was to oakmont bakery;
where we visited a friend of ours, Justin.
everything looked incredible!
& the treats we brought home were so worth the stop!
_____________________________________________________________________
 
 
brought home some macaroons-how fitting they were green!
(had these for the first time & they are delicious!)

 lastly, our hotel room key was snatched up by b..
guess he's trying to tell us to never leave again.
or something like that?
 
these moments away are so valued.
they were not only refreshing for our relationship;
they are good for the soul, too!
 
thanks for taking the time to browse through some of our photos.
 
here's to another adventure hopefully again soon! <3
