And just like that, it’s the holiday season! I’m so excited that Christmas is almost here – and can’t believe it. I’m so looking forward to a few days off and seeing my family.
Here’s how our weekend looked:
Friday night, we went out to Aladdin’s for dinner with the whole family. I had their fattoush and spicy cauliflower, which are my favorite. Unfortunately, they messed up the kids orders and ended up overcharging us, but we all survived.
Saturday started off with some pajama play. We typically have the kids get dressed before going down for breakfast, but it was nice to just stay in our PJs on the chilly morning.
I can’t help the title — it’s December and the past week has been pretty great for running! While my parents got tons of snow in NY, somehow miraculously in Cleveland we were spared and had a relatively mild week with mild temps and no real accumulation of snow overall. We had some flurries one morning and it looked slippery another morning, so I opted to hit the treadmill those times, but other than that, I lucked out and got outdoors every day!
Here’s a look at the week:
Can you believe we’re already in December? Thanksgiving came and went last week and we’re finally getting into the holiday season. That means it’s been nonstop Christmas music playing here!
Here’s a look at what our long weekend entailed:
Wednesday, work let out around 3 p.m. so I picked up LM early and we headed to the library to run around for a bit. She has some molars coming in, so we didn’t get in much playing.
FW was in for a treat – he got picked up early by B’s brother, who was taking him to the movies. FW got to see Frozen 2 with his cousins, aunt and uncle. It was his first movie theater experience, and I think he loved it.
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving week here ended up being pretty good in terms of weather most days, which meant almost all my runs were done outdoors AND B and I got in a Turkey Trot. I ended the week with just under 30 miles total.
We had a busy but fun weekend in town. I’m not ready for it to be MONDAY, but I’m glad it’s a short week!
Our weekend included some early Thanksgiving celebrations, a friend in town, a girls’ night, a toddler birthday party and of course some running. Here’s how it panned out.
Hooray!! The snow melted and we were able to get back outside and running outdoors again in CLE. That meant this week I was able to run outside most mornings and was able to ignore the treadmill for another week.
Here’s how this week looked:
We started off the week with a FAMILY stroller run. We haven’t run as a whole family for a while, and it was nice to get outside with the four of us. LM was tired and cried for 2ish miles before finally passing out in the stroller.
We also got in a walk that day — look how nice it was out!
Thursday’s run was actually split between 2 workouts- I ran 6ish in the a.m. and then got in a short workout with a coworker, which I haven’t done in several years. It was a great way to beat some work stress!
This week is a weird week with the holiday, so hopefully I’ll be able to get in some workouts anyway.
Some questions for you:
- Do you ever workout in the middle of the day?
- Do you have any workouts planned for the holiday week?

The weekend included some festivities, running, relaxing AND baking. In fact, I baked twice in one day, which was a regular occurrence before I had kids.
Here’s some of the fun.
Saturday started with a baby shower for my sister-in-law! My mother-in-law baked the cutest cookies as usual.
