I am so excited about this giveaway from one of the best Boutiques in Pittsburgh because I love to shop! I love to support small businesses in Pittsburgh when I can and I think that shopping and exploring our surroundings can be a healthy outlet for us busy and stressed moms.
Shopping can get a little dangerous for our budget but I guess we can say it is healthier to be addicted to shopping and finding deals than eating bags of chocolate chip cookies late at night! We all have our vices, right? I could easily go to Marshall's or Target to buy gifts, household items and decorations or I could check out a cool small store in Pittsburgh like Picket Fence. I try to shop local when I can. Picket Fence has an online store as well as a boutique located in Shadyside.
When I checked out their website, I immediately noticed their Pittsburgh merchandise and I had to have this shirt and stationary. Love!
One of the healthiest things to do when the weather gets nice is to get outside and walk and explore your surroundings! I love to do this on Sundays because it is the only day of the week that my husband is off from work and it encourages movement and exercise for the entire family, even the kids! I have been reading a lot about the benefits of just walking. Yes, maybe we don't need to get to the gym everyday and max ourselves out. Maybe it all comes down to just moving all day long! I have been reading Harley Pasternak's book, "The Body Reset Diet" and he says that it is not what we do in the gym that matters the most, it is what we do outside the gym the rest of the day that really makes a difference to our weight and health. Interesting read! Check it out.
I hope this post encourages you to get outside and walk and explore your city! If you are walking around Shadyside in Pittsburgh make sure you check out Picket Fence. Adorable store. I love those days when the girls and I have the entire day to walk around and explore. Such fun memories!
