Pittsburgh: Part 3

Left to Right: My cousin, Megan; Me; my sister, Jen; my Grandma; My Aunt Lynn; My mom

Saturday we got up early to be ready at the conference center when the doors opened at 8:15. We had another round of great speakers and good music. We took a walk down about 6 blocks to a pizza place (Giovanni's) with just about anything you could want on the menu. We had a lovely stroll through the city (see Monday's post). Then we headed back for more speakers, more music, more hope.

After the conference ended at about 4pm, we decided to spend the rest of our day strolling around IKEA, we had dinner there, and then we hit up the Mall. My cousin works for Claire's right now and has an awesome 50% off discount. My sister and I took full advantage and bought more jewelry than we have in the last 5 years combined. It was awesome. I also got some cute headbands in addition to my new stash of earrings and necklaces.

We hung out and chatted while we ate giant IKEA cinnamon rolls in one of our hotel rooms until we determined that it was indeed time for bed.

Our weekend came to a close and we headed off for a full day of flying. Jen and I flew to Atlanta, had a two hour layover (which we spent eating lunch at TGIFridays) and then we had a long flight back to Salt Lake. I got home at about 3 and Luke was down for a nap, and like any other Sunday, Scott was in the kitchen making Spaghetti for us. We definitely missed each other.

It was a good trip--a bit too short for the distance we traveled, but worth it for some renewed hope and a chance to spend time with family I don't get to see that much.
