Busy Winter Weekends (One Sentence Per Photo)

Phew, what a weekend! From a Cavs game to a wedding shower to hanging out with cousins to an ice festival to running to dinner with friends, let’s just say it was a pretty busy weekend.

But – it was fun, that’s for sure! And since I’ve already written too much, this is going to be a one-sentence-per-phot-style blog post. Ready? Go!

We walked over to Ice Fest in Public Square.


Yes, I toasted a marshmallow and checked out the cool sculptures. 20170129_144926We ended the weekend with a Chinese New Year celebratory diner (hello year of the Rooster!) with friends. And that about sums up our weekend. Some questions for you:

  • What are you the year of in Lunar New Year? I thought I was an ox for the first 25 years of my life and then learned I’m actually a rat!
  • When was the last time you had a s’more?

Per usual, I’m linking up with ErinKatie and the weekly wraps.

TGIF Eats (WIAW:TGIF edition)

Happy Wednesday! I hope that I didn’t confuse you by calling this TGIF edition – it’s not quite Friday yet, sadly – instead, these are my eats from last Friday.


The day started with a chocolate protein shake. I’m typically a vanilla shake person, but I’ve been much more in the mood for the chocolate flavor lately and it hit the spot Friday morning. I topped it with a few slices of banana.


I had some tea on the side. I love herbal tea and had bought this tea when B and I were in Mexico and it was delicious.


Lunch was leftovers. I had leftover spaghetti squash with homemade tomato sauce, along with leftover homemade chicken gnocchi soup.


And a giant grapefruit. Because I love grapefruit.


I also snacked on some hard candy in the afternoon.


I had a coffee meeting in the afternoon and enjoyed some of my favorite local tea from Phoenix. Ruthie’s Tea with honey is my idea of perfection. I also was able to enjoy a macaron.


I got hungry a few hours later and had some peanuts to tide me over until dinner, which I knew we wouldn’t be eating until at least 8


Friday night, B and I had plans to go to the Cavs game with some friends and get drinks before the game and dinner at the game. So dinner was less-than-healthy, but pretty delicious – Lola fries (thin fries with rosemary) and a chicken avocado sandwich while at the game. The food was good – but we lost the game in the last second.


And that was about it! Not a bad Friday.

Some questions for you:

  • What’s your go-to stadium food / game eat?
  • Tea drinkers – what’s your favorite tea?
