Too Much Fun Stuff To Do

Wow, this past week into the weekend was filled with too much fun stuff. From ladies’ nights to running to marathon ambassador meetups to celebrations, we were BUSY. But it was all fun, so I can’t really complain? Though, I do feel like I need a day off to recover!

Thursday night was a meetup with the Cleveland Marathon Ambassadors. We met up at Pinstripes for food, fun, drinks and bowling!

My Kind of Weekend

It was a GREAT weekend in CLE. It was warm (in the 70s and 80s!!) for October, my parents were in town, I got in some good quality time with the kids AND we were able to celebrate LM’s baptism. 

It was great to celebrate with my mom – three generations in one photo 🙂

After the baptism, we had everyone over our house for chili, cornbread, chips, veggies …

And look at this cake! B’s mom made a GREAT cassata cake.

We all enjoyed the food.

Sunday, B had tickets to the Brown’s game (and they WON!), so FW and LM and my parents and I went to the Zoo!

FW’s favorites are the elephants and the giraffes. 

I LOVE having my family in town, and FW really enjoyed spending time with his Nonna and Grandpa. And LM is so much bigger than the last time they were in town, so it was fun to have them interact with her.

What a wonderful weekend – family, good food and good weather. I couldn’t ask for much more ❤

A Weekend with a Wedding, Birthday and Baptism

To say it was a busy weekend would be an understatement. BUT it was a GREAT weekend filled with lots of memories with family and friends, so I wouldn’t have it any other way!

After doing a few hours of work on Friday morning, I took the rest of the day off to get prepared for the weekend. Meaning baking cupcakes, shopping and cleaning. But of course, I had to get in a nice run first. Love these views of downtown!

After that, I found time for a pedicure. The massage felt so good!

Said cupcakes I baked. I made banana cupcakes because FW loves banana and the plan was for him to have his first cupcake that weekend 🙂

That night, B and I ordered sushi takeout. I had a great veggie roll, seaweed salad, and some sashimi – tuna and mackerel. 

And then we had to stay up and watch the Cavs game. I don’t usually  stay up ’till midnight anymore, but I HAD to watch … they finally won one! Now to win 3 more …

Saturday morning also started with a run. I got in 5.89 miles before meeting B and FW for some grocery shopping.

We headed to the West Side Market to get some groceries for the week, plus supplies for Sunday. Sunday we had plans to celebrate FW’s baptism AND birthday and we were going to be having a make-your-own sandwich station.

On the way home, we came across this great new mural. I love it!

Then it was time for Nicole’s backyard wedding celebration! I didn’t get any pics of the bride and groom sadly, but here’s FW and I all ready to go!

We left the festivities a little early because my parents and my mom’s cousin were in town! We met them for dinner at Masthead. Pizza and beers. 

Sunday morning started early- FW got baptized! 

I felt so lucky to have my parents in town to celebrate. And I know FW loved it too.

One of my college roommates just happened to be driving through Cleveland on Sunday, too so we got to see her!

FW had his first taste of cupcake. He looooved the frosting!

B’s mom made us a bear cake – it was so cute and tasty!

FW also got to hang out in the sandbox. At first he wasn’t too sure about it, but after a few minutes, he started to really enjoy it. 

By the end of the afternoon, everyone was pooped. Me included. It was a long day!

We were all pretty tired, but content after a great weekend of family and celebrations. A perfect summer weekend!

Some questions for you:

  • Was it hot where you were this weekend? It was in the 80s here!
  • Who are you rooting for in the NBA finals?

I’m linking up with the weekly wraps.
