An uneventful weekend (coffee shop hopping)

It was a pretty uneventful weekend for me in Cleveland. The weekend consisted of dinner with friends, baby registry, running, working, crafting, running, working, board meetings and that’s about it. See? Do you really need to see what that looks like?

Well, in case you do, here it is.

B made dinner Friday night for our friends Dave and Anson and their baby girl. We had our own Friday fish fry dinner and it was delicious. They came over to help with our registry – and you know how fun that is! (sorry, registering for baby stuff is less-than-fun for me :))

But dinner was great. Mashed cauliflower, scallops and asparagus.


Saturday morning started out with a run. Even though it’s now official spring (yay!) I woke up to 30 degree temps. Still, I made it outside for a 4.5ish mile run. I definitely am showing in my running clothes now!


After the run, I had some work to catch up on so I hit up a coffee shop, The Gypsy Bean (Coffee Shop #1). This one shop has one of my favorite sandwiches – open faced hummus – and I had that with their quinoa tabbouleh. SO GOOD.


Then it was time for Ladies Craft Beer Society! This month’s “craft” was making homemade cleaning supplies. We had an Irish/St. Patrick’s Day theme, so there was also boozy shamrock shakes (I had a sip of one – they were delish!).20160319_161611

And plenty of treats – some orange chocolate chip scones, as well as pull-apart reuben bread.20160319_163413

I brought cupcakes 🙂


Saturday night was uneventful. I caught up on some college basketball (my bracket isn’t doing so well) and started watching a movie with B before falling asleep. We watched a documentary about the Barkley Marathon – these people are insane! And it’s sooo cool.

Sunday morning included some indoor miles before getting in some more work.


Another day, another coffee shop to catch up on work. This time, my favorite tea at Phoenix Coffee.


After catching up on some work, I had a board meeting to head to. I’m on the executive committee of the Phi Beta Kappa Association of Cleveland, and we had our planning meeting on Sunday.


And then it was time for Sunday dinner. Since I have to get some blood testing done at the doctor tomorrow, I had to stay away from the pasta and dessert 😦 At least the salmon and salad was delicious!

And that was my weekend! I’m linking up today with ErinKatie and the weekly wraps.

Some questions for you:

  • What’s your go-to all purpose cleaning supply?
  • If you have to catch up on work, where do you prefer to go – the office? Coffee shop? Your home?

  1. Windex! Great for everything.. (Did you see the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding?) That salad looks amazing. I see blueberries, chickpeas, tomatoes, pecans. Yum. I’m very impressed you are still running. You’ll bounce back quickly after the baby comes. I know you must be getting excited. Thanks for linking with us Melissa.

  2. My go to cleaner is called Awesome and you get it at the Dollar General stores and it is truly Awesome on just about anything! You;re going to laugh but when I have work, ummm blogging to do at home I retreat to our RV. Yes, the once Man-cave is now the Hen’s Nest! Why, because it’s usually quiet in there! 🙂 Thanks for linking up Melissa!
