Pretty Good Weekends Are Made of Patios, Pancakes, PR, Parties

This blog post is brought to you by the letter P. P. I’m not making this up. My weekend was made of alliteration – pretty much everything that began with the letter P. See for yourself – patios, pancakes, Pitch Perfect, PR, parties, pretzels, pizza, pork, potato pancakes and more.

Friday night started with a patio dinner and a movie with B – Pitch Perfect 2.

B and I split two entrees – their chopped salad and a club sandwich. I think outside of getting Chinese food, this may be the first time B has agreed to split food with me! It made my night. It’s the little things, right?

Saturday morning started with an easy 2 mile run and then the 5k fundraiser for an organization that B and I volunteer with on occasion – the West Side Catholic Center. It’s a fun 5k around Ohio City with a pancake breakfast after the race. The official times aren’t up yet, but I’m pretty sure I got a PR, too! We walked home and enjoyed a pretty picturesque view along the bridge.

During the afternoon we headed to the West Side Market to pick up some produce for the week. And then for lunch, we decided to try out a new cold pressed juice and food place – I got an acai bowl with coconut, almond butter and granola and B got the watermelon mint juice. SO good.

Saturday night, B and I met our friends Dave and Anson for some patio drinks at the Hofbrauhaus, and of course a giant pretzel. We ended the night with a party for one of our friends who was turning 30.

Sunday was a nice day of prep and catch up – I had pizza for breakfast, got in a lazy workout, tried to catch up on work I had neglected this week, painted my nails, did some meal prep and watched a few episodes of Girls.

We ended the day with dinner at my in-laws. They had just returned from Germany, so our meal centered on German specialties, including pork and potato pancakes!

Pork, potato pancakes, asparagus and hollandaise, cabbage and bacon, salad

A question for you: what one letter describes your weekend?

What’s the best thing you ate this weekend?
