Friday Five – 10.21.16

friday five blog

By the time you read this, I’ll be on a train to NYC for a weekend girls trip with my Momma. We have a handful of things planned & I’m pretty excited! I’ll make sure to recap my weekend for you when I get back! In the meantime, here’s another installment of Friday Five to hold you over. ๐Ÿ™‚

1. This past Sunday I went to Soregel Orchardย with 2 of my girlfriends & we had a blast! We picked apples, tasted a bunch of different wines, & filled up two growlers at Arsenal Cider Houseย before we left. Afterwards, we went back to Jessie’s & promptly drank both growlers & had a blast talking about running/music/everything under the sun. We did our best to be as basic as possible. ๐Ÿ™‚


Yes, we cut in front of children to get this picture taken.


2. On Tuesday, I tried out X-Shadyside. I ended up winning Jessie’s giveaway on her blogย so I now get to use their gym for 2 months! I’m excited to try out their spin & body pump classes. I didn’t do a whole lot while I was there since my left hamstring was still bothering me from my race on Saturday, but walking on the treadmill helped a little.

3. Now that I will be frequenting Shadyside for a couple of months, I walked around Walnut St. since it was a nice day out. I happened upon Salud Juiceryย who actually has been following & liking some of my posts on my Instagram! The woman working in there was so nice & she recommended the “Green Anna Bread” smoothie. It definitely didn’t disappoint!

4. If anyone who reads this is a big Pittsburgh Steelers fan (Ya’ll know I’m diehard. I love sports), then you guys understand my sadness about Ben’s injury. I’m really hoping he bounces back fast (he usually does) so that we can continue our good season. I have been looking forward to Steelers season since it ended, so the fact that we not be winning in the near future is heartbreaking! But hey, I still have a decent fantasy football record.

5. I cracked open the bottle of wine I bought from Soregels on Sunday & it is delicious! This is a pretty sweet wine (still have not grown to like dry wines) & was perfect to end the evening with on Tuesday.

What’s your favorite wine? Do you like dry or sweet? Red or white?

Are you a sports fan?

    I’m on that sweet wine train too, but red or white, so long as it’s wine. ๐Ÿ™‚

    One of my favorite things in NYC is to see Stomp. Don’t know if they’re always there or what, but the basically make music out of regular things, like brooms, or garbage cans & it’s SWEET. It’s been a few years since I’ve been to NYC so no food recs. But, HAVE FUN!
