So I am really looking forward to this week because my sister decided to come and stay with me. During the day while Caleb is at work, it has been really lonely, so I am excited to have someone to do things with. We decided since it was such a beautiful day that we would take a stroll through the city. I love checking out all the local shops ! We first stopped at a local pizzeria to get some pepperoni wraps, and Taylor got buffalo chicken rolls. They were AWESOME! We then decided to drop by for some coffee. My addiction varies between iced green tea lattes made with matcha or an iced caramel macchiato.
What I love about this city is that everything is pretty much within walking distance, and I love how many bike trails there are. There are almost just as many people riding their bikes from place to place as there are people driving! Okay… maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but it’s still impressive. In Wv,, we really have it made when it comes to the convenience of getting in and out of the stores/ restaurants we love the most. In Pittsburgh, however, parking is nearly impossible and it probably is in your best interest to either walk, or ride a bike; but I can’t complain much because it encourages and promotes living a healthier lifestyle. So it is kind of a win win. All in all, it was a beautiful , eventful day.
So, this morning I received a sweet text from Caleb, telling me to be dressed and dolled up by 5pm. To my surprise he had a lovely evening all planned out just for me. Usually, I always spoil surprises from him because I’m a tad intuitive, but he definitely got me this time. When I first got into the truck on the way there he told me to look in his laptop case; what do I find? An old vintage camera that he knew I fell in love with a few days back while window shopping . I was extremely thrilled and shocked that he remembered. About 10 minutes later, we arrive close to the Duquesne lift, park and he then informs me that he has made reservations at a restaurant overlooking the city. I couldn’t even contain my excitement. Needless to say , it was a fantastic, magical, beautiful evening and I couldn’t have imagined it any other way or with anyone else. Thank you my sweet husband for not only knowing me so well, but caring for me the way that you do. Such a genuine , sweet , selfless soul. I love you so much.

Today, i’m going to be sharing with you one of my favorite potato soup recipes! I’ve been sharing my photos of the soup here and there on Instagram and everybody has been asking what I use ! How I do like to usually make things from scratch, my dear mother-in-law introduced me to Bear creek soup mix !
They also have broccoli and cheddar, tortilla soup, and chicken noodle! I haven’t tried any of the others, because I cannot get past how great this is! I can say, that I do you add my own potatoes . It does have potatoes in it already, but they are very tiny and I like to add Red skin potatoes. I chop them up into little squares and just toss them in the mix once I’ve let them boil for awhile . Other than that , I add some salt , pepper , and garlic powder (because garlic is the best ). Then wallah!!
