We had a WARM weekend here in CLE and I can’t complain. You could argue that Friday into Saturday felt like it was spring here – we hit almost 70 degrees on Saturday! I really loved it and we fully took advantage of it, doing ALL of the things outside in between the rain – running, walking, playing, etc.
Happy January! I know last week was also January, but now it feels like we’re really into 2020. And that means, it’s time for spring marathon training!
I’m not training for a marathon at the moment (I’ll probably start training for my May half marathon in a month or so), but this week was the Cleveland Marathon Kickoff Run. They had a 5 mile run in Cleveland that started and ended at a brewery, meaning tasty local beers and brunch awaited us! (Plus free donuts and coffee)
Look at how many people were there! I also got to meet up with fellow Cleveland Marathon Ambassadors, which was great.
The run was definitely the highlight of my week, which included lots of treadmill running. Here’s the look at the week:
In the Heights … yes, I’ve been listening to Lin Manuel-Miranda and have In The Heights in my head. The songs are so catchy and the movie trailer just looks great to me! And it makes me think of warmer days and being outside …
But I digress. It’s not warm here and we were not outside much. But we still had a good weekend in OUR Heights. It was equally productive, festive, active and fun, which makes for a pretty good weekend in my book. Some of the fun included: Continue reading
And just like that, it’s the holiday season! I’m so excited that Christmas is almost here – and can’t believe it. I’m so looking forward to a few days off and seeing my family.
Here’s how our weekend looked:
Friday night, we went out to Aladdin’s for dinner with the whole family. I had their fattoush and spicy cauliflower, which are my favorite. Unfortunately, they messed up the kids orders and ended up overcharging us, but we all survived.
Saturday started off with some pajama play. We typically have the kids get dressed before going down for breakfast, but it was nice to just stay in our PJs on the chilly morning.
Can you believe we’re already in December? Thanksgiving came and went last week and we’re finally getting into the holiday season. That means it’s been nonstop Christmas music playing here!
Here’s a look at what our long weekend entailed:
Wednesday, work let out around 3 p.m. so I picked up LM early and we headed to the library to run around for a bit. She has some molars coming in, so we didn’t get in much playing.
FW was in for a treat – he got picked up early by B’s brother, who was taking him to the movies. FW got to see Frozen 2 with his cousins, aunt and uncle. It was his first movie theater experience, and I think he loved it.
We had a busy but fun weekend in town. I’m not ready for it to be MONDAY, but I’m glad it’s a short week!
Our weekend included some early Thanksgiving celebrations, a friend in town, a girls’ night, a toddler birthday party and of course some running. Here’s how it panned out.
The weekend included some festivities, running, relaxing AND baking. In fact, I baked twice in one day, which was a regular occurrence before I had kids.
Here’s some of the fun.
Saturday started with a baby shower for my sister-in-law! My mother-in-law baked the cutest cookies as usual.
