Nine months ago, I got a slip in the mail from my program in Rome telling me who my roommates were going to be. As I frantically tried to look them up on Facebook to see if they were 'normal'...I could not find this girl. Needless to say, I was quite nervous walking into my hotel room on January 7th but found her sleeping in bed watching Harry Potter. From that moment on, I knew she was going to be an amazing friend. She rolled one of my 50 pound suitcases all the way around the Trastevere, she closed the shutters every night before bed, she shared her Bueno Bars and wafers with me, and we travelled all around Italy and Prague together..she is the best roommate I could have asked for and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way (bickering included) <3

So...the reason for posting all of that was because she visited me recently! It was one of the best weekends of the summer! I loved showing Pittsburgh to her and can't wait to visit Ohio in the Fall :) 
We loved the murals in Southside!  

She became a Panther in Oakland! 

Her favourite spot was Penn Mac! 
Her Italian finds include: 2 bags of wafers, bueno bars, italian coffee, and fresh buffalo mozzarella. 

We couldn't wait to eat the mozz! 

Looking out from Mt. Washington!

p.s. Coming soon is a post on what to do and where to go if you are taking a weekend trip to Pittsburgh!
