My mom came and visited this weekend! Both of my parents were supposed to visit, but my dad came down with a sinus infection and my mom decided to still drive out by herself. I’m so glad she did! Even though she was only here for a little over a day (Friday night through Sunday morning), we had such a great time and did a lot. Seriously- I had SUCH A GREAT time. It’s going to be hard to wait another month to see her!
We started out with dinner at one of my favorites Friday night, Taza.
look at all this Middle Eastern goodness!

Saturday morning started with breakfast at Phuel.
Plus my last free coffee for a while at Starbucks. Now that they’ve changed their rewards program I don’t think I’ll be benefitting anytime soon 😦
Followed by a walk to the Cleveland Tea Revival for some tea.
Iced berry hibiscus = perfect for the warm weather we were having!
And then to the West Side Market and the walk home.
Practically 8 months pregnant!!
That afternoon we got pedicures – the same color (OPI’s “She’s a Bad Muffuletta”).
And to the bakery for a few treats.
Then it was time for the Indians game! B got us suite seats through his work and we joined his family for a WINNING Indians game! (They were playing the Mets so my even though my mom was sporting an Indians t-shirt, I’m sure she was just a little disappointed – we’re from NY and the Mets are the team she rooted for growing up)
After the game, I convinced B and my mom to go out for ice cream. Like seriously, my mom was tired, B didn’t feel like getting off the couch and I pulled the whole “I’m pregnant and want ice cream” and it worked. Maybe I should’ve been doing this the whole time?
Sunday morning we had a quick breakfast with my mom (courtesy of some of the treats we grabbed at Bloom) before she headed out. It’s always so sad when my parents leave, and this time no exception. It took me a little while to recover.

But when I did, B and I headed outside to enjoy the gorgeous weather. It may have been 50 downtown, but it was 70 in Rocky River and we went for a run in the Metroparks. I had a hard time at first, but once I stopped comparing myself to my non-pregnant runner self and started to enjoy the weather, the scenery, etc. I had a really good run.
I will be sore on Monday (because that’s what happens when 7.5 month pregnant me runs now), but it was so worth it to get outside and feel good about myself.
That night we celebrated Mary’s dinner with B’s family and it was the perfect night to be outside before dinner.
shrimp and grits!
Amazing what a difference one week makes – it was 20 degrees last Sunday and 70 this week! I’ll take 70 any day 🙂
Some questions for you:
- Did you have amazing weather this weekend as well?
- Favorite ice cream flavor – go! I love anything with vanilla and chunks. Especially cookie dough or peanut butter or heath bar!
- What’s your idea of a perfect girls weekend? the above – good food, pedicures, walking and some outdoor time.
I’m linking up today with Erin, Katie and the weekly wraps.
