A visit to the West Side Market. Because we hadn’t been in a few weeks and I was seriously craving some fresh fruit.

An Indians game! They ended up losing but we had amazing seats right behind home plate pretty much and it was a gorgeous evening. And they had post-game fireworks!

Some productivity. I caught up on work and emails, did some meal prep (a few freezer meals for post-baby) and some baking.

Ice cream. Because Masons is great and their peanut butter and jelly ice cream hit the spot (not pictured- the scoop of honey baklava ice cream).

Cheers (nonalcoholic of course) to a short week!

Some questions for you:

  • Did you enjoy a Memorial Day BBQ? What was on your plate?
  • What’s your favorite thing to do when the weather’s warm? Go to the beach!

I’m linking up today with ErinKatie and the weekly wraps.
