Only 5 days before the little broski's wedding! Our flight down to SC was canceled! But we picked up another one out of Latrobe for $60 less! Booya, DirectAir! We have to go to Latrobe anyway to drop Patton off. The only complication will be flying back into Pitt on Sunday, but I think we have the logistics worked out!
It was a chilly, but relaxing weekend. We had plans to go to a Halloween party, but bailed because of the weather. It was supposed to snow/ice again on Saturday night, but I'm not sure if it actually did. On Sunday we woke up and drove to one of Billy's rigs. It felts like an hour long roller coaster - going up and down hills and so many turns and unpaved roads! It was worth it though because he got the job! Woooo!
Annnd to top it off, the Pirates and the Steelers WON! Looking forward to this 3 day week! One of the perks of working for a Catholic school = tomorrow is All Saints Day = no work!

Saturday morning I woke up bright & early to head to Greenville for Morgan's Bridal Brunch. I was so happy to be invited and it was nice to see everyone before the wedding craziness began!
The wedding was perfect and I wouldn't expect anything less from Morgan. She's one of the most thoughtful people I know. From the giftbags, to the decor, she's always on point! I haven't seen her in three years, but it felt like no time had passed at all! Except for when we went to 519 after...it definetly did feel like I was an old married lady who was ready for bed around 1am!
On Sunday, I dragged my aching head out of bed and made the drive back to my parents. After a healthy dose of Motrin, I was back in action and went for a long walk on the beach with my mom. I'll see them again in less than 2 weeks! DirectAir called us yesterday and cancelled our flight to SC, but I was able to find another one out of Latrobe. Luckily, we need to go there to drop Patton off anyway! We'll miss the rehearsal, but I'm pretty sure Billy and I will be able to find out way down the aisle!

Last weekend it was almost snowing and this weekend it was 80 degrees. Pittsburgh, stop messing with me! It really was a great weekend though. Friday, Billy decided to stay in Morgantown after work and relive his college days with some of his buddies. He made it back by 9:30am on Saturday and slept most of Saturday while I went shopping to try to find a shower curtain to go with our pink tile bathroom. Dear, sweet Billy…never seems to remember how much it is going to hurt the next day when he does that.
We had friends coming to stay with us over the weekend, so I was forced to finally put everything away/hide it under the bed. The guest room finally looks presentable! What we did realize though, was the bathroom door doesn’t shut all the way! With just the 2 of us, we never shut it…so it wasn’t until Saturday that we realized that this was a problem! Especially when Patton likes to nudge the doors open and join you in the commode or shower. We sort of fixed the issue with a latch hook.
So Steve & Tiffany got engaged on Grandview Ave on Saturday evening and went to the game on Sunday. For the game, we went to one of Billy’s college friend’s grandmothers house in Sewickley , where he proceeded to trade them our vegetables for cookies on the way out. We went out to dinner on Sunday and then Billy forced ice cream on everyone because his stomach is a bottomless pit. Of course, I got zero pictures as usual. I need to really start taking some because I never have any to submit to my cousin’s family calendar that she has made every year. Such a disappointment!
Less than 2 weeks until North Carolina – one month until my broski’s wedding and then my FIL comes to visit and then Thanksgiving! Lots to look forward to!

Even though I own a few iPods, I never caught on to the Mac craze. In light of the passing away of Steve Jobs, here is a quote from him and the top 5 reasons I am loving my work today, "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do."
1. Student organizations and emails like this: The brothers of Phi XX XX will be hosting a Sausage Fest on Friday Oct. 7th from 11am to 3pm, on A-walk, outside of Mellon. Come enjoy a hot dog, a hot sausage or to just to "meat" the brothers. Seriously, did no staff proof this? Or did they think it was too funny just like me?
2. Free gym membership.
3. Free tuition.
4. Green space like this in the middle of the concrete jungle of downtown. I enjoyed this view, sunshine and a book yesterday during lunch.
5. Library/Starbucks/Bank/Post Office/Pharmacy all at my place of employment. The only other thing I could ask for is a dry cleaner.
