Year in Review: PART 1

I know, I know, it is February, but I was MIA while I had my first trimester "hangover" and I really love a good recap so here is part one of my 2015 year in review in February.
In January I flew to California to visit my good friend Jenna who had recently moved to Manhattan Beach from Chicago.  We had the best time

We ate and drank our way through the weekend and dinner at SUR was a must.  ( Although no celeb sighting).  We biked, we shopped, and ate and drank some more. 

In February our friends Luke and Alaina visited us from NJ.  They helped us with some projects we were working on in the house and after a long hard day of work relaxing in the hot tub was necessary.  ( Also worst picture ever - but the only one I took all weekend).
At the end of February I drove to Washington, DC to visit my sorority sister Allie.  We spent the day exploring the cute town of Alexandria, VA and did some touristing around DC.


In February DFH and I braved the blizzard and enjoyed great seats at a Pens Game. 

DFH also finished our mudroom. 

In March our friends Brook and Jess visited us from NJ.  We took in the sights of the city with cocktails on top of Mt. Washington

and celebrated St. Patrick's Day at a Pens game. 

In April we went home to NJ for Easter and celebrated with family and monogrammed eggs. 

DFH surprised me with a date night to see Dirty Dancing at the local theatre.

In May we finished repainting the outside of our house.  

Lara, Allie, and I went to see Hall and Oates for our first outdoor concert of the summer.

I ran the Pittsburgh Marathon Relay with these girls.

We celebrated Oliver's 2nd birthday. 

and spent the weekend in Maryland at the music festival Delfest. 


Also in May my sister got engaged.

In June we finished redoing the office and hung our barn door. 

I was so honored to be asked to be my sister's Matron of Honor.

and we finally got to celebrate my sister's engagement while we were home in NJ.

We attended our good friend's Luke and Alaina's wedding.

and loved getting to hang out with so many high school friends. 

Posing with the bride and groom.

Just two weeks after Luke and Alaina's wedding we went back to NJ again, this time for Tom and Rosie's wedding.
Stay tuned for part II....
