Darrick and I went on a Weekend Getaway the weekend of October 15-17.
We went to Pittsburgh, PA but we first made a stop at Grove City to do a little bit of shopping at the outlets!!! I must say I have the BEST Boyfriend (well he turned into my FIANCE’ on the trip) EVER!!!!
This is a bridge we had to cross over to get there…it wasnt that scary but it was raining so it was sleepy weather and I was trying to keep myself awake!
We stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott…and this one was a brand new one! Thank the Lord because the whole Bed Bugs fiasco scares me!!!
I was surprised when we got there because Darrick booked a suite and not just a regular room. So we had two rooms in one. One for sitting and one for sleeping.
The sitting area of the room…
After arriving and spending some time in the hotel. We decided to get out and do a little sightseeing. Darrick was he tour guide as he used to live in Pittsburgh! Our first stop was to his Alma Mater…Robert Morris University! This is where he was recruited to play football…
I love college campuses, and the stories of how they have changed over the years. It was hard to get around the campus at this time because it was Homecoming Weekend, we didnt attend any of the festivities but the campus was packed.
After the college tour, we went to grab a bit to eat at Ditka’s. Professional Football Coach, Mike Ditka is originally from Pittsburgh and he has a restaurant and we ate here for lunch…
So this place had Applebees’s prices…but the BEST service I have ever had! There were white table cloths, so I was nervous that we were underdressed but we were greeted at the door and seated right away. The service was amazing!
Duck tours….(we didnt go on one…but I really wanted to), we watched them as it went from the street directly into the water! How cool right!
Other sights in Downtown Pittsburgh…
How did that get in there!!!!
Now I had to take a picture of the stadium because we were in Pittsburgh, but I am by NO MEANS a STEELERS FAN!!!! I LOVE MY BROWNIES!!!!
Darrick and his God Kids!!! He looks very comfortable with kids doesnt he!!!
Its a PINK TAXI!!!!
Our first picture as an ENGAGED COUPLE!!! We went to church when we came back so we could tell everyone (we grew up in church together)!!!
