Winter Weekends Aren’t All Bad

I’ll be the first to admit it – I don’t really like winter.

I don’t like the cold weather. I don’t like snow and ice. I don’t like the dark days and nights. I prefer warmth and the ability to hang out outside, enjoy some sunshine and run when it’s light in the morning and at night.

BUT – I have to admit it. Not all winter weekends are bad. And I had a pretty good one this past weekend! Some of the highlights:

A flight of beers at Hansa House. My first time going to this new brewery and it did not disappoint.  Especially since FW slept while we were there 🙂


A trip to the West Side Market for some ham hocks. B made me one for dinner (to continue our Germany theme) with some piergoi and sauerkraut. And spicy German mustard.


A walk around Ohio City with FW in tow. I love wearing him, even though he’s getting too big to be in this baby k’tan much longer!20170114_152727

A group run! Fleet Feet hosted a kickoff run for the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon and I got a chance to wear my new Cleveland leggings AND meet up with some fellow marathon ambassadors for 4 miles. (check out the photobomber in the back !)


A birthday party! It was another weekend with a first birthday party for fellow LCBS baby Jack.


And then a short walk around some lakes. It was somewhat a beautiful (but cold) day.20170115_165618

And finally, dinner with B’s family and BIRTHDAY ICE CREAM cake for dessert! I love ice cream cake. We celebrated our nephew’s birthday – I can’t believe he’s turning 7 – and my almost birthday!


See? Not an entirely bad weekend 🙂

Some questions for you:

  1. Do you like winter?
  2. What flavors of ice cream would you have in your ice cream cake?

I’m linking up with Katie and the weekly wraps.

  1. I like the new look of your blog! How cool you have Cleveland leggings! I assume they were given to all ambassadors? Our (now closed) local ice cream shop served Blue Bell Ice Cream and their Triple Caramel flavor was to die for. I miss it. I just returned from Disney where everything was green and flowers were bursting with color. I think what bothers me most about winter is the grayness, not the temperature. Thanks for linking, Melissa!

  2. You have a new look over here at your corner of the web! Ha FW is quite the workout carrying him around like that huh? Bet you have some kind of upper body strength!
    I love ice cream cake too and ya know it’s been way too long since I’ve had any! Chocolate is my favorite ice cream flavor so I’d have to stick with it!
    Hope you have a great rest of your week Melissa.
