Weekend Recap: Playing Babysitter

It was a great, fun and activity-filled weekend. B and I enjoyed a Friday night out – dinner at Lola, celebrating Pride in Cleveland, the Flea and babysitting our niece and nephew.

Some highlights, in photos:

Started the evening out on East Fourth with  B.

And of course pancakes for breakfast.



And an afternoon matinee at the theater – the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie. Always a good movie.


And dinner at a friend’s house. I love love love Mediterranean food so this hit the spot. Grilled lamb, veggies, homemade hummus, a greek cucumber noodle salad homemade flatbread with falafel spiced tomatoes. I can take no credit for any of the deliciousness.20150809_180244

And a great night for a walk, because I haven’t run since my 10 miles Friday morning.


Perfect end to a weekend.

Some questions for you:

  • Do you have any friends that love to cook? Yes! I have a few – and I get to benefit 🙂
  • Which Willy Wonka movie do you like more? The original!
  • Did you read Roald Dahl growing up? Do you have a favorite Roald Dahl movie or book? The Witches and Matilda, definitely. I LOVE Roald Dahl! I also love the Twits and BFG but it’s been forever since I read those.

Linking up with Her Heartland Soul today again for this weekend update. Have a great week!

    I’m drooling over that dinner. I love fois gras (Vegas thinks I’m an ass for eating it though). Love that you guys checked out Pride too! Looks like a beautiful weekend!
