I cannot believe it is already 2012. The holidays went by so quickly. We were able to spend a little over a week up north visiting family and friends. Since we were up in the DC area, we took advantage of the affordable bus trips and decided to visit our friends in Pittsburgh for New Years weekend. The buses were pretty nice. A lot more spacious than a plane, free wifi, and about the cost I would spend on tolls and gas so I really can’t complain. It was a little cloudy and cold in the city but I have learned to expect that weather after several years of living in Pennsylvania.

Our first stop was to “the strip” which was an area lined with restaurants, shops, and markets. We grabbed lunch with our friends and walked around visiting several of the markets with fresh-baked good and produce.

We found some interesting food items and definitely A LOT of Steelers fan gear. It was a nice way to start our trip!
