Garth Brooks, Niagara Falls & A New Adventure

Happy Monday, friends!  I know it’s a little late and I haven’t had a post in a while but it’s been a busy weekend! First of all, the little B-ster seems to be feeling much better, which is a huge relief!  The sun is out, it’s not going to get dark until later in the evening, The Bachelor season finale is on tonight, and we’ve hit 50 degrees in Pittsburgh.  Thank goodness.

This weekend was a busy one in Buffalo filled with lots of running around and the Garth Brooks concert on Saturday night at 10:30pm.  Holy crap.  I am not a night person.  Never have been, never will be… I guess I am just an old soul because the mornings are my prime time.  But I did manage to stay awake for the concert and it was really great!  Not being a die-hard GB fan, I figured I might know a decent number of songs from the radio but it turns out I knew just about all of them.  You know you’ve made the big time when you can perform a whole concert based solely on radio hits.

On a side note, Thursday night I took the plunge and chopped off about 6-8 inches of my hair.  It was super scary, but I was ready for a change.  I have the thinnest hair in the world, so it’s nice that now it doesn’t feel so scraggly.  (My hair is so thin that my braid was embarrassing…. think Smigel from Lord of the Rings.)

Exhibit A: throwback to the tough mudder and the thinnest braid ever. (can you tell why the braid was such a rare occasion?)

Anyway, it still feels really weird when I pull it into a ponytail but I have zero regrets. 🙂

Sunday we took a trip to Niagara Falls to see everything frozen over.  It was very cool, but it was also very hazardous.  All of the mist practically created an ice skating rink on the trail that is already extra scary because the snow has accumulated so much that the guard rails are only about 2 feet off the ground.  I felt like I was in Ice Age.

I am so terrible with taking pictures.  I didn’t even snap one measly shot of one of the Seven Natural Wonders.

But it turns out I will be getting many more opportunities because as of March 23rd, I will be residing in the Great White North.  I don’t know if there is anything more terrifying than putting in your two weeks notice (ok, that may be slightly dramatic).  But in all honesty, I really like my job in Pittsburgh and I’ve been with the same company since college so it was really difficult for me to take the leap.  It’s no secret that I am a very routine person, so this has been a very challenging process.  I have been feeling much better about it though since I got it all out in the open.  I hate keeping big secrets.  I’m pretty nervous to leave my life in Pittsburgh, but I’m excited to see what this new adventure brings!
