Where have I been?

I cannot believe it has been a month since I have updated my blog...goes to show how crazy/busy/FAST life has been flying by. 

I think I left off right before Duke and I went to Pittsburgh. I have a new found love for seeing new things. Especially because I don't know if I'll ever have the chance again. So with that in mind- we spent a weekend in Pitts.
fun fact: on our way there Duke stopped to get gas- and he happened to take the exit to the outlet mall. it was heaven for me..Duke didn't quite think so haha

I had asked around to a few friends what we should to while we were there- and we heard a few great suggestions. The first was the Carnegie museum of natural history.. why not?
-I have to admit it was really great for the first 30 minutes while we were there but then all the dinosaurs started to blur together. haha guess we're not the touristy type.

Then we heard of something called the Mt. Washington Incline- It's supposed to have the best view of Pittsburgh. See for yourself:

Low of Pittsburgh: The roads were terrible- even the GPS couldn't save us. Duke actually got nervous driving-and if you know Duke that just never happens. I think we got honked at, yelled at, and had to turn around maybe 100 times.

To follow our week in Pittsburgh we went to to Toledo to spend Christmas with Duke's family. I hate how fast the the time goes by- There's so much to say about Christmas but really it was just fulfilling. It was nice to be surrounded by people who we love, and get to escape Erie for a week. It's always the hardest coming back though. We love everyone so much. It was also my 2nd Christmas being away from my family. I missed them so much- but that's the power of compromise: Thanksgiving with my family. Christmas with Dukes.

 New years hopes and memories to look forward to: 

1. Arizona trip in March- my best friend Kailyn is getting married!
2. Duke's last semester in school- thank GOD!
3. Giving up pizza. 
4. Celebrating our one year of marriage in July. 
5. Moving to our next adventure, our next city, Cleveland! 

So much more updating to do!! 
That's a good summation of our life for now.

Happy reading:)
