Back from the Burgh

If you couldn’t tell from my post on Saturday, I had a fantastic time at home this weekend.  There was volunteering on Thursday, family time on Friday, and more volunteering on Saturday!

Saturday night was another Jam on Walnut event in Pittsburgh.  Basically, the event in beer and bands on a street in the city, and the donations and tips from the event go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  I am sad that this was the last one of the summer! It was PACKED, which hopefully means a lot of money was raised – though a final count hasn’t been tallied yet!

That’s a picture from earlier in the night before it got too busy. There was a time when the crowd didn’t even move! So awesome for the cause Smile

Yesterday was a first birthday party! One of the girls I grew up with (that lived down the street and my mom babysat) was back in Pittsburgh for her son’s first birthday! The party was at an awesome boat house!

There were some pretty cute guests in attendance, too! The little girl on the right is the sister of the little boy whose birthday it was! And the other little girl’s mommy was also part of my mom’s babysitting bunch! Too cute!

And I can’t forget the yummy desserts, of course!

Desserts that definitely warranted a little cycling upon my return to Shippensburg.

20 miles in the bag, hopefully I keep the workout ball rolling throughout the week.  I really fell off the bandwagon last week! Here’s to a new beginning!

After the 20 miles, I watched My Week With Marilyn, and fell in love with the whole thing! It was an extraordinary movie.  And the lead male role wasn’t too bad to look at, sorry Travis Winking smile

Happy Monday!

Tell me your favorite part about your weekend!
