Scenes from a Fabulous Weekend in the CLE

Another fabulous weekend in Cleveland has come and gone. We ate. We drank. We sat outside. We grilled. And it was awesome. I am so in love with summers in the CLE that it’s not funny. I hope you all enjoyed your weekends!

We had drinks and dinner on the patio on East Fourth (I love this street at night)

We went to the West Side Market Saturday morning for a little grocery shopping to supplement the week’s Fresh Fork Finds.

B cooked us dinner on the patio. I will be eating turkey burgers for a few more days this week. Thanks again to my friend Debbie for the patio-safe grill :) (Please don’t judge me by the plants on my patio … this includes you, Debbie)

We relaxed on our private patio. I love Bud Light Lime in the summer!

We finally broke open the Mangria. I highly recommend you serve it on ice.

B and I went for a run. Yes he went for a run with me looking like this. Bless his soul – it was hot out and I was wearing waaay too much pink. I need to get some new sneakers (I’m at 400+miles anyway) if I want to continue wearing these amazing ProCompression socks that I won from this awesome blogger’s giveaway.

And we pulled out the slip and slide at B’s parents house. I did not use it … but the kids had fun!

How was your weekend? Some thoughts to ponder:

  • What’s your favorite summer weekend activity? I just love being outside!  Whether it’s at the beach, on my porch or on a patio somewhere, summer is all about soaking in the Vitamin D!
  • Does your drinking preference change during the summer? Sometimes. I love any lime flavored beer in the summer – Miller Chill, Bud Light Lime, Michelob Ultra Lime Cactus – you name it. In the winter I tend to stick to a glass of red wine.
  • Do you have any ridiculous running outfits? See above. You decide. Just be happy I was wearing my white hat as opposed to my pink headband!

    • I love chicken burgers too! I generally buy which is cheaper – ground chicken or ground turkey – or whichever is around that is the most healthy (leanest, organic if possible, etc.). Yum!!! The ground chicken is also great with more italian spices and parmesan cheese – sometimes I make chicken parm burgers :)
