Snow day + Pittsburgh: Part Two

I’m not all for, but my goodness, was he wrong! So much for spring…we’ve been pelted with snow all day long!

When I woke up this morning around 5:30 to get to the gym, I peeked outside and found no snow, even though they had been calling for overnight snow showers. Typical. I quickly got dressed and headed off to the gym to do a 20-minute speed treadmill workout, followed by 30 minutes of ab circuit work. When I left, I was greeted with almost an inch of snow covering my car and pretty awful driving conditions!

I figured I should go get my work computer and such before the weather got really bad, so I woke up my hubby and begged him to drive me to work. Unfortunately, the snow had started too late for most schools to cancel, so he still had to go into work this morning. He (angrily sleepily) agreed and braved the weather to help me grab my computer, charger, and a few other things I needed from work. Win :)

I spent the day working from home (and was super productive!) and am excited to try out a new crockpot meal I threw in for dinner. I’ll be sure to share if it’s a success!

But, first, back to my weekend recap! If you missed my first night in Pittsburgh featuring a trip to the Market District & Burgatory, head to Pittsburgh: Part One.

We had a busy Saturday ahead of us and needed to leave around 10 a.m. for my aunt’s baby shower, so I woke up around 8 a.m. and ate a pre-workout snack before heading to the gym in my sister’s complex.

I took it easy and did a 30-minute pyramid elliptical workout followed by about 20 minutes of arms. With all my emphasis on running, I’ve definitely been slacking on my strength training, so it was good to get some in.¬†After my workout, I headed back upstairs to shower and whipped up a batch of these for my sister and me…they are one of my favorites! I topped mine with some natural peanut butter and honey.

After breakfast and getting ready, we finally left Pittsburgh (only a few minutes behind schedule!) to get to my aunt’s baby shower, which was about an hour and 45 minutes away. My parents had driven in, so it was awesome to see them and get to spend time with my whole family!

The theme of their nursery is elephants, and they had the cutest elephant-themed shower. Elephants must be the “thing” this year because every other gift was something elephant-related! :) Check out these cute centerpieces and favors…

After the shower, we headed to my nana’s to have dinner with everyone before heading out. I was so hungry by that point and definitely lacking in my fruit intake for the day, so I immediately had a banana and orange followed by a slice of pizza. (Enter food coma #2 of the weekend.) Around 6:15, Kate and I started our trek back to Pittsburgh.

It was after 8 by the time we got back, so there wasn’t a lot of time for shopping before everything closed. However, we made the most of our hour at the Waterfront Shops! We started with a trip to Famous Footwear and Kate found a pair of shoes, followed by a trip to Express. I found an Easter dress, which I just love! Look how cute…now I just need a belt to match!


We also got matching shirts, which was only fitting after every other person asked us if we were twins all day, haha! We ended the night with a (relatively) quick trip to Target, and then headed back to Kate’s to make plans for our final day in the ‘Burgh! Check back tomorrow for my final ventures in the city :)
