Happy Monday everyone! Was the force with you this weekend? It definitely was strong with me! This was such a fun and busy weekend, so let's get into some highlights.
Our weekend started with seeing the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra play music from Star Wars- Episode I-VI. Dan and I don't really get each other gifts anymore, but I wanted to surprise him before Christmas with these tickets. He's always been a huge fan of Star Wars, and even got me into the movies when we started dating, so I knew he would love this.
The show was unbelievable! The music was beautiful, the stage was transformed into a galaxy far, far away, and there were all sorts of fun touches that the orchestra did to make the show even more amazing. Things like a Chewbacca Scream Contest (winner got a signed poster by John Williams) and a visit from Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper during the Imperial March.
I even got to meet Chewie himself!
On Friday, we went to Steffany's house for a Christmas party! It was so fun to meet her friends from college and see some other local runners. We watched the Pens game, played Cards Against Humanity, and had some delicious food. I brought along my Hot Chocolate Cookies!
Saturday morning Dan and I had a coffee date at Commonplace Coffee. It was actually my first time there, and I'm in love. On the walls, you can see tons of Pittsburgh-themed paintings by local artists that you can buy, and I loved the industrial feel to the place. I got an Autumn Spice latte and it was amazing!
Is there anything better than some latte art?
After coffee, it was time to see STAR WARS, which was the second part to Dan's gift! I really liked the movie - Rey is my idol, BB8 is the cutest, Han is a hunk - and I really liked the story line. It definitely has a different feel from the other Star Wars movies though. Dan and I both thought there were too many cheesy moments, which I guess is Disney's way to make this more family-friendly. If anyone else saw the movie, I would love to hear your thoughts!
Sunday was a pretty chill day, with some relaxing, some cleaning, and some football watching (GO STEELERS!). I ended this fun weekend watching Dan play some hockey!
BTW- I have a really exciting collaboration / announcement to talk about, so make sure you come back tomorrow!! I can't WAIT to share! Ohhh, the suspense :)
Thoughts on Star Wars?
Anyone just not care about the Star Wars hype?
Does anyone play fantasy football? How's your team doing!
Tell me about your weekend!
