Pittsburgh Recs, Please!

On Monday morning (at 6am, unfortunately) my boss and I are headed to Pittsburgh for a conference. We're going as exhibitors and have only one pass to the actual conference part- he'll be using that. So it looks like I will have a few hours here and there to explore.

Room shot - hope it's as nice as it looks!
We're staying at the Westin Convention Center a few blocks from the waterfront and near their downtown area. Any suggestions on what to do? I've never been.

I want to check out "The Strip" which is only three blocks from the hotel. It has shops and public markets, supposedly.

I also want to visit Market Square, which is an area of restaurants, coffee shops, and public space that's a renovation and restoration project of the downtown. Coming from a downtown development background I'm into that.

What other ideas do you have for me? Quick and easy only- I'll only have a few hours here and there. And AC- you're getting a magnet! :)

All About Ashley

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
