On the Road Again

Happy Monday everyone! I’m currently writing this post on the road (which I think is the coolest) as we head home from Pittsburgh. If you follow me on Instagram, you’d know that it was our fifth annual road trip to cheer on the Steelers at Heinz Field. We are now driving over 1100 miles–about a 15 hour drive back home where there is no more winter!

We started the tradition of road tripping to a Pittsburgh Steelers game when we were still in college, surviving the first year off of gift cards and hospitable strangers. We’ve since evolved our travel style (though not by much) and were literally so excited for our first ever play off game! This year we saw snow multiple times (there were even snow flurries during the game) and for a second there, I thought we’d turn into actual popsicles. I literally don’t know how you Northern people do it–my foot warmers gave out with an hour!

Since we’re stuck in the car for some 15 odd hours, I made this playlist to pass the time. You can find my favorite songs, old reliables, and songs that remind us of Pittsburgh. Next time you’re on the road again, pull up this playlist and enjoy!

  • So lucky for you that you get to travel a lot. And I’ve never been on a road trip for a long time now, so you just reminded me to try more of that this year!

    I’ll be road-tripping through the south this summer and love this playlist! Tons of songs to dance and sing loudly too! Ignition is my jam 🙂 xx http://www.thecarlycollective.com

    I love a good road trip, and a good play list to go along with it. When we moved from Alaska home to Ontario, we had 12 days of driving and one kick ass playlist that we still listen to, 3 years later!

  • Love that playlist and love going on road trips! They are so much fun and such a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your loved ones!

  • FUN! Love road trips and having a good mix for the drive is essential. Makes me laugh–the last time I took a road trip with my bestie, I assured her that my ipod was loaded, but apparently the battery hadn’t been fully charged so we went about 10 miles… and then listened to the same CD on repeat on the way back. WHOMP!

    I love this mix!! So many good songs and a great variety. 🙂 My husband and I have a loooooong road trip planned for the summer, so I am saving some of these to my que.

  • So many fun songs on this mix! Enjoy your trip back home 🙂

  • We have SUCH similar tastes in music!

    I love a good road trip. Nothing make the drive go by faster than playing your favorite tunes. Pinning this for later!

  • Omg every time I hear/see ‘A Thousand Miles’ by Vanessa Carlton I think of ‘White Chicks’ hahaha.

  • YES Renegade and Black and Yellow. Totally Pittsburgh. Glad they had such an awesome game for you to see yesterday, I was thinking of you! GO STEELERS!

  • Such great songs. I’ve become a little obsessed with playlists lately and I always love seeing what others have on theirs.

    Great idea! We travel very often, but we don’t have a playlist for the road, we should totally try this!

    Looooving this playlist. It has some of my faves (Bruno Mars and Janelle Monae) and some awesome oldies but goodies. Thanks for sharing!

  • Your trip looked so fun! You guys were a state away from me! Love your picks!
