Yesterday Mark and I were sitting in the show waiting for Furious 7 to start and I heard my phone vibrate. I went ahead and looked at it because the coming attractions hadn't even started yet. It was a text from Tristen sharing a photo of the front door from inside their rental house.
They had just experience their first thunderstorm and a tree fell! They thought for a minute that it could have been a tornado. Obviously it scared them and thankfully they were not hurt. Also it didn't hit their car which is also a blessing.
These two photo were sent by Adam which we saw after we got out of the movie.
I'm not sure if I shared that they only rented this house for 4 months. April is there last month and they just found an awesome loft apartment to rent. Of course the move is supposed to happen this weekend so the tree blocking the front door is a bit of an issue. Tristen said they will just have to work around it.
I planned on sharing a link to their new place in a post so with the tree falling it has given me the perfect opportunity to blog about it. Two weeks ago they spent a lot of time looking around Pittsburgh at different rentals.
They are not quite ready to buy a house yet because they want to explore what Pittsburgh has to over. Also after experiencing their first Winter they are not quite ready to have those responsibilities yet.
They seem to like the freedom to come and go without having to shovel or take care of a lawn. On top of that they still have their awesome condo in L.A. that needs to be set up as a rental.
I have noticed that they really like living in an area that has a lot to offer. You can walk to awesome restaurants, unique stores and grocery stores like Trader Joe's and Whole Foods! This place seems to fit that bill beside being close to the university.
It is called Shadyside Commons which is a converted former hardware business warehouse. If you have a minute I think you might enjoy looking at some of the photos in the link.
"Shadyside provides an exceptional combination of urban amenities in a relaxing residential environment. These apartments near the University of Pittsburgh, UPMC-Shadyside, and Carnegie Mellon offer easy access to the city’s parks, shopping, and restaurants, in the coveted residential neighborhood of Shadyside."
They rented a one bedroom 1 1/2 bath apartment. The bedroom and full bath is up in the loft using the spiral staircase. There is also a wall of brick which of course adds a lot of character to a place. I'm so excited for them and can't wait to visit!
