It's been forever since I've blogged! I have been so wrapped up in my graduate program and work that I just have not had the time to write. Honestly, I should be studying for an OM test I have tomorrow, but I couldn't fight the urge to post a few pictures from my recent trip to Tulum, Mexico. Check it out under the Life & Style tab !
This blog post title is the only place you'll ever see Auburn before Alabama! I had the to opportunity to spend time with family down in Auburn this past weekend. As most of you know, I never turn down an opportunity to venture out of town! Even if it's only about an hour away from home!
Happy Friday my loves! The weekend is finally here! Last Friday I spent the entire day in Los Angeles to cap off my New Year's vacation in California and I want to share it with you all.
Ran inside the entrance of the Andy Warhol museum to snap a quick pick with this background!
Snapped this pic from the River Walk.
After having taking picture after picture of and on the Andy Warhol bridge, I made my way a couple of blocks over to visit the Senator John Heinz History Center. You guessed it-- it's a museum...sort of! If you're ever in downtown Pittsburgh, it's a must-see! It's literally 5 floors of greatness! I especially enjoyed the Heinz section--it highlights numerous products of theirs and details the company's global impact! This place literally features so many cool exhibits under the sun. They've got local Pittsburgh memorabilia all the way up to global pieces featured from WWI & WWII. Not to mention, an entire FLOOR dedicated to Pittsburgh sports! Admission is less than $20 for adults and believe me, if you hit all 5 floors you'll have gotten far more than your moneys worth!
After being out and about a full 12 hours, I had to get some rest for Sunday's football game at Heinz Field!

If you've been reading my blog for any amount of time now, you can see that most of my travels revolve around sporting events. This trip was no different except for that fact that I got to spend some much needed time with family!
The Steelers took on a feisty Oakland Raiders squad which made for a really exciting game!
The Steelers got the "W" and my weekend was made!
I had such a fun weekend in Pittsburgh exploring the city, hanging with family, and supporting the Steelers. I can't wait until I get the chance to come back!
I'll be updating the blog a lot this week with another really, really fun travel post, another recipe, and a fun style post! Be sure to follow me on Instagram (_margosmith) and Snapchat (margggg58) for a look behind the scenes before I post on the blog! Thank you all so much for taking a few minutes out of your day to visit Simply Monday Musings!
Pittsburgh. Home to the three sister bridges and the city where three rivers meet. The city that produced more steel than all the allied axis powers combined during World War Two. The newest city I have fallen in love with! I took a little trip up north a few weeks ago to visit family and explore this beautiful city. I had an absolute blast!
Thank God it's Friday! The weekend is finally here loves, so get ready to have some fun. I'm taking a quick 72 hour trip to see a good friend of my in a few weeks, so I've put together a little post detailing some of the things I find purposeful when packing (depending where you're headed!)
battery pack phone charger // water bottle // pajama set // travel neck pillow // clear mascara // chapstick //
energizing eye patches // camera // sunnies // weekender bag // mini flat iron //
I don't travel much, but when I do, I'm normally only gone for 72 hours tops! Unfortunately, I pack like I'll be gone for a month. With my next trip, I'm only taking one bag (minus my purse). And since I'm only taking one bag, it's vital that I find a bag that's not too large but not too small. That's why it's crucial to find the perfect weekender bag!
But what exactly should you pack for a 72 hour trip?
Hi loves!! I'm back! Over the past week, I've been handling a lot of things at work so I haven't been able to dedicate as much time to the blog. (Booooo!) I originally planned to post last night, but GMAT studying literally consumes my nights from 6pm-11pm.
But, I do have some exciting news! I actually got out of the house this past weekend!! My family and I went to Atlanta for a few hours to the Falcons-Steelers game. I had a BLAST!!
*Side note: I rarely have the opportunity to leave home, so whenever I do, it's a BIG deal!!!
Steel City in the Dirty Dirty.

My game day outfit was very minimal this time. A team varsity crew from Victoria's Secret PINK NFL collection, dark wash jeans, black booties, and my fave pair of shades.
The Georgia Dome has bottomless popcorn, ya'll. BOTTOMLESS!!!
Let's GO STEELERS!!!
Mom & I celebrating the WIN!!
You were good to me Atlanta. Until next time...
Day trips are so exciting for me! Where do you like to go when you get a free 5-7 hours to do whatever? Tell me below in the comments section!
