Our first week and weekend of social distancing is done! I don’t know how many of these we’ll have, but I’d say it was pretty successful. Thankfully we had some nice weather (well, it was cold but at least it was clear) that let us get outside and we are all still healthy, so there’s not much to complain about.
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!
Happy birthday … to me! My birthday was on Thursday, and I only worked a few hours on Friday, so I had a nice long weekend to celebrate!

So what does that look like in real life? Here’s what that entailed:
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.
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.
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.
“What are you guys doing this weekend?” My mom asked me on one of our daily calls (yes, we talk pretty much daily) this week.
“I don’t think we have anything planned,” I replied. And then I checked our calendar. Sure enough, this is the last weekend before the holidays with absolutely nothing on our calendar! So, I was looking forward to having nothing planned and doing whatever we wanted. Which turned into a date night, several trips to the museum, a visit to the library, a playground stop and more.
Here’s what the weekend entailed:
I have a decent amount of vacation time left this year, so I decided to take a few hours off Friday and hang out with FW. This meant we had some fun one-on-one time, which included going to the “pancake store” for lemon ricotta pancakes.
