Summer weekends

I seriously love weekends so much. I know – not surprising. Everyone does. But summer weekends where the weather’s perfect and you end up with equal parts fun, productivity, and relaxation? Those are THE best.

Friday night started with an Indians game with B and his company. His company outing included all you can eat and drink, plus grew seats at a fireworks game. AND we won!

Such an amazing sunset … No filter needed 🙂

Also, great fireworks!

After the game, we went out and met up with B’s friend from high school and his girlfriend who were in town. We ended up bar hopping until the bars closed. Yup – I may be getting older and may have been tired, but I guess I still got it!

Saturday morning, I met up with Mary for an easy run. I had done 8 miles Friday morning and had gone to bed late, so I was hoping to just get in 3-4 miles. Barely made it 5 miles. It was finally seasonal temps (70 degrees in the morning) but felt SO hot to me. Gotta get used to hot summer runs again!

Had to pause on the bridge to breathe heavily take a picture:

After our run, I met back up with B and we hit up the West Side Market for our groceries. We typically go there weekly but it had been a while — so glad we got to go back!

I was craving something refreshing after the run – a big thing fruit was just what I needed.

After the Market it was time to hit up the Flea. I love the Cleveland Flea – during the summer about once a month there is a giant flea market with food, drinks and stands of people selling antiques, clothing, jewelry, soaps, etc. It was the most perfect sunny day and we visited with Dave and Anson and Dave’s mom who was in town.

After the Flea, B and I checked out a few open houses with my friend Cuoghi. Yes, we’re sorta house hunting! And then it was time for ice cream. I love Mason’s Creamery- a cute ice cream shop in Ohio City and the owners are SO nice.

I couldn’t stop by Ohio City without a stop for some kombucha from Cleveland Tea Revival.

I was in the mood for pizza for dinner, so B and I hit up Gallucci’s for some supplies. I love Gallucci’s – look at all those great Italian canned/jarred goods!

And our great supplies:

So I made some sauce, and B made pizza.

Sunday was actually pretty laid back. B had plans to play golf so I took it easy – got in an easy workout (Sundays are my “stretch and strengthen” day on my half training schedule), did some meal prep, made some granola and got a pedicure. After a long winter and season of running – my toes are finally  flip flop ready!

We had big plans to go to the beach, but it was not as nice as Saturday and looked like it may storm all day (it didn’t actually rain until late afternoon), so we pretty much hung out indoors. Ah well. My toes are happy!

We didn’t end up having family dinner, so B made me something I had been craving for a while – fish. Anytime I can relax, enjoy my pedicure and enjoy a homecooked dinner – pretty much a perfect Sunday 🙂

  • How was your weekend?
  • What’s your favorite kind of fish?
  • When you get pedicures – what kind of color do you get? Pinks? reds? purples? Or something fun like green or blue?

PS – Happy birthday to one of my dearest friends from high school, Alisa 🙂 Can’t believe it’s been more than 4 years since we took the below picture!

  1. Such a fun weekend! My boyfriend and I always end our Sundays with homemade pizza. One of our favorite traditions 🙂 And pedicures = ballet slipper pink. I’m so basic it’s painful.

  2. Love, love, love your weekend, Melissa! This all looks like so much fun! I’m so jealous of your homemade pizza ingredients right now – yum! Your pedicure looks lovely; my MIL and I are going to do that together this weekend, since she was not feeling well the weekend before my vacation. Thanks so much for linking up with the blog; hope your week is going well!
