Lately... - The Surznick Common Room

Wednesday, March 25, 2015


Hi friends! Sorry we've been so MIA lately. Life has been busy I suppose, but not blog busy... more like relaxing busy. I think we've just hit an end of winter slump and needed to step back and take a breather for a few minutes. It's been rather nice, but we've missed the blog a bit too. No worries though, we've got more DIY projects, recipes, and even a shop update on the horizon. For now, here's a quick summary of what we've been up to over the past few weeks (via mine and Nick's Instagram photos.)

Milkman Brewing... yum | My favorite sweater (via Oasap) | The pretty bar at Round Corner Cantina

The first weekend in March was the warmest we've had in awhile. We hopped on a bus to Pittsburgh's Strip District to visit the public market, grab a coffee, and sample beers from a local microbrewery. In the evening we walked to Lawrenceville for dinner and drinks with friends.

Philly hotel room views | Skateboarding mecca of the universe | Gotham City... I mean, Pittsburgh

While most of Pittsburgh was partying and parading their little hearts out for St. Patrick's Day, Nick was in Philly for a work conference and I was just trying to avoid the rainy, dreary weather. Don't worry though, when Nick returned to the Burgh we tossed back a few green beers with our friends Sarah & Joel.

Rainy Downtown Lancaster | Free Rita's - Eskimo style | The Seed | PB&J stout + PB&Chocolate stout

We took last Friday off work and spent the first day of spring in Lancaster. It was so cold and snowy, but I can't say no to free Rita's Italian ice. We ate an incredible vegan lunch in downtown Lancaster at The Seed (I think I liked the decor just as much as the food). And of course, a trip to Lanc isn't complete without a stop at The Taproom. My beer of choice is the Lil Gruesome (peanut butter & jelly stout), while Nick prefers the Big Gruesome (peanut butter & chocolate stout). Isn't The Taproom the coolest?

Hats, hats, hats | Keys are my liiiiiife | Happy Birthday, Mom! #twinning

Saturday morning we went flea market browsing at Saturday's Market. In addition to the mannequin heads and keys, we saw quite an eclectic mix of goods... everything from candy to navel piercings and thousands of dishes to witchcraft courses. Saturday was also my sweet mom's birthday! We toured a winery, made homemade pizza, and watched National Lampoon's Vacation. I love her dearly and was so happy to spend her birthday with her.

And... that's about it! Thanks for letting us share what's been going on lately! I promise we'll be back with projects soon. We hope you have a great week!

Sarah & Nick
