Primati Brothers Sandwich. I love the Capicola and the Pittsburgher the best! Of course it's a Pittsburgh institution, and it has been featured on the Food channel and the Travel channel numerous times!
The Palm Place. The best store in Pittsburgh to buy Lilly, VV, Eliza B., and other beautiful clothing!
Beto's Pizza. Yes that is cold shredded mozzarella atop warm pizza bread and sauce. It really is amazing.
Mac- The best dog in the entire world. I miss him terribly while I am away and have a large blown up picture of him framed in my room while I'm away!
Going to Steelers games! Preseason started August 14! I miss being able to see my team live in action! No worries, as long as my cable at school gets the games, I watch!
The View from Mt. Washington. To me, this is my favorite place in the entire world. So romantic, so nostalgic, so Pittsburgh.
Hands down the best diner. Of course you can't forget the smiley cookies or the grilled stickies!
Of course, most of all, I always miss my parents, sister, grandparents, aunts, uncles, family friends, high school friends, puppy, and neighbors.
A tip for the college ladies: I found that I would get bouts of home sickness during my freshman year. They weren't bad, but from time to time, I of course missed the place that I had lived in for 18 years of my life. To help me be less homesick, I created a folder in my Pictures and labeled it "slideshow". I added all of the pictures that reminded me of home. All of the pictures above are in the folder, plus tons more. I got some off of Google images, some from friends, and some I took myself. Then I set my screensaver to only play these pictures. The pictures would go by when my computer would sit idle, and it was like I had a little slice of home.
If you are headed back to school, I hope you have a safe trip. And for those of you that start classes today, I hope everything goes smoothly! Have a fabulous day!
