Thought I’d coin a new term there. What do you think? Momcation. I like it!
I’m off on my annual trip to see my BF Kristen in Pittsburgh. We try to see each other at least once a year, sometimes twice. Because she’s a single mom with 3 kids, she doesn’t get to come West very often but she and the kids came to Phx in March and we had a blast.
So I’ve got 5 days of girl fun in this crazy city filled with Steeler fans. I’m not sure what it is about the Steelers but their fans kind of transcend description.
I arrived last night in the middle of their first regular season game. There was a sea of black and gold at the airport. The airport restaurants were closed, gates down but TVs were on and small groups of airport employees were gathered around catching a few minutes of the game. We even got score updates on the plane from the pilot.
Today at the grocery store I got a chuckle over this:
I cooked up an Ethiopian dinner for Kristen, her parents and the girls. It was fun to let them experience it. Tomorrow we’re off to Kennywood with the girls.
