Nude Nails & Free Rita's

First, thank you to everyone for the sweet comments and emails regarding my post on Monday about my alma mater, Seton Hill. You all are lovely. Thanks for your support. <3

In other news, happy spring! Does it feel like spring to anyone yet? I'm dressing for it in hopes that the weather will catch up to me, but I am still wearing my winter coat, scarves and boots. Remember how happy we were just a few months ago to bring out those boots? Wah.
First Day of Spring: Freezing while holding Rita's Red Velvet Cake flavored ice.


Yesterday, the official day of spring, was a great day for me. I had a rare day of no school or work requirements and MJ was allowed to take a day off of work because of all the hard work and long hours his team has been putting in recently. So like a loving boy, he picked yesterday so we could spend the day together. The only thing that would have made the day better would have been if the weather was warmer. But MJ planned the greatest day-date ever. I am so blessed. It's rare for us to be able to spend a lot of time together because of our schedules and the distance, so I would've been fine with sitting in my apartment staring at each other, but MJ is an expert planner for fun outings.

It was also refreshing to spend the day out of the city. Which as I typed that, I felt bad saying, but it's true. We went to Narcisi Winery for lunch and actually agreed on one bottle to share. This is a big deal to the girl who loves dry when her man loves sweet. And yes, I realize my taste in wine is equivalent to that of someone four times my age. But we agreed on the Niagara, so naturally bought another bottle for MJ to take home so we can share it later. This place is beautiful though and if you're around this area, it is definitely worth the trip, but maybe save it for a warmer day so you can walk the grounds.

The rest of the day was spent driving back towards the city and of course, our favorite activity...shopping. Until MJ decided to surprise me with dinner and bowling at Latitude 40. Which I have never been to, but is a favorite spot for MJ and his work friends. I'm an awful bowler so he beat me, 165 to 57, no big deal. I did get one strike. This is also a place to look in to, especially if you've never been, it was like a better version of Dave and Busters, in my opinion because it's an up nad coming local business. And then of course, we made the trip to Rita's for our free 'first day of spring' ice. Perfect day. Perfect boyfriend.

What did you do to welcome (or encourage) the season of spring?

  1. How funny is it that just a couple months ago we were begging to bring out our sweaters and boots and now we just want to get rid of them! Hopefully soon we can both bring out our spring clothing. Until then, frozen yogurt it is ;)

    1. That must be hard if you follow a lot of fashion blogs around here and see girls wearing cute spring outfits! Autumn is actually my favorite season though - we just didn't get too much of it in Pittsburgh this year.
