It was a weekend that started and ended with the Cavs. Since my NBA team is in the playoffs, that means plenty of game watches, as well as very little sleep. I think there’s a math equation in there…
This city is All In!
This week I was lucky enough to have a visitor in town for a few days – Katie, one of my roommates in college, was in town from Seattle! She had a wedding to go to but came in a few days early and got to spend some time with me and B. Which meant some dinner at Noodlecat, patio drinks, and a game watch that went into the weeeeee hours of the morning.
We ordered every steam bun on the menu
To say downtown was crowded is an understatement

That didn’t stop us from getting up early on Friday for a scenic run before work together.
Sweaty selfie with the city in the background!
Friday night I was pretty tired and was craving some hummus and vegetarian foods so B and I hit up Flaming Ice Cube. We started with the hummus appetizer and I enjoyed their sunshine salad with tempeh.
It was a relaxing night – B and I stayed up watching old episodes of Little Rascals, and then Katie and I caught up while I tried to keep my eyes open.
Saturday morning B and I said goodbye to Katie and then went for a run around the city. It was the first time that I’d seen a deer in downtown – how cool is that?
5 foggy morning miles
Then I had to work an event for a client. We were giving out free ice cream, chocolate truffles and more in Tremont – not a bad event to work, huh?

After work, B and I hit up Hingetown for some beverages – coffee for him and kombucha for me. I had plans to go to the Flea but by the time my work event ended, it was pretty much too late 😦
So instead, B and I then decided to take a walk around downtown. It had turned into a gorgeous day (no more fog/clouds) and walking to the water seemed like a great idea.
love this view of downtown!
B had picked up some fish, veggies, cheese and bubbly while I was working so he made dinner! I loved everything about this meal.
pre-dinner bubbly drink – limoncello, champagne, blueberries and basil
Sunday morning started with an easy 5k on the treadmill and some elliptical and 8 min abs. The last time I did 8 min abs I was sore for DAYS so I’m expecting to feel it tomorrow and beyond 🙂
Then, while B played golf I attempted to be productive. I went for a walk, did some meal prep and baked cookies.
Salads, chicken and quinoa
ALL IN cookies – peanut butter oatmeal with “wine and gold” M&Ms
Sunday evening I went to a friend’s house for a Cavs game watch (boo another lose :(). She had plans to watch the game outside on her back porch, but the rain prevented that from happening. Instead, we projected it in her living room with a wine and gold themed feast – seriously everything was wine and gold — from the appetizers (wine and gold cheese, yellow peppers and tomatoes with hummus) to the main dishes (hot dogs and mustard, beet veggie burgers) to the desserts (red velvet cupcakes with a gold cream cheese frosting). I went to bed stuffed but hopeful that we’ll win the next one!
Today starts half marathon training for my race in August. It’s supposed to be a hot and humid morning – hopefully not all OF my summer runs are like this!
All in all it was a pretty good weekend!
Questions for you:
- Do you have any summer races planned?
- Have you ever watched Little Rascals? The TV show or movie?
