Not Your Average Memorial Day Weekend

{A belated thank you to those who have served our country to protect our freedom!}

So, my memorial day weekend didn’t quite go as planned. There was lots of good, but plenty of bad, too… (more than I would’ve liked!)

The Good:

Ladies Night Colin Kane Comedy Hilarities East 4th Street Downtown Cleveland
Free tickets to see Colin Kane at Hilarities on East 4th Street! Perfect girls night out!

Mike & I went to “It’s a Spring Fling” at Mahall’s 20 Lanes to see a couple of our favorite artists/bands: Allison Weiss (shown in pic), Masked Intruder, and Mixtapes! We felt really, really old afterwards…
Yep, we can’t hang like we used to anymore! hahaha
Yummy grilled pineapple at the Marc's Great American Rib Cook-Off that I won 2 tickets to courtesy of Eat.Drink.Cleveland! :)

The Bad:

{Don’t worry – there aren’t any pictures for this part… I’ll spare you.}

  • Excruciating tooth pain & swelling out of nowhere…
  • A trip to the ER, being on major pain killers, having a tooth extracted
  • All of this happening during Memorial Day weekend when the dentists were closed on Monday (hence the ER trip & having to wait until Tues to get the stupid thing removed…)
  • Boyfriend leaving for his first work trip – AKA longest we’ve been apart since we moved in together – AKA really hard (I know, I’m being pathetic).

On the bright side – the worst of the bad part is over & I’m just trying to heal now. Boyfriend will be back Friday so I just have a couple more days alone. And hopefully the rest of the summer will be smooth sailing with no weird ailments coming at me from out of nowhere!

  • Glad you had some fun to balance out all the rest! Grilled pineapple is one of my faves. As for work trips, I hate when my husband is gone and tend to get unreasonably cranky. But at least I can indulge in watching shows he hates. Always an upside ๐Ÿ™‚ Hang in there!

  • I have those shoes! I bought them in green, then blue, then pink, then green again. Obviously I am a fan. I’ve been really impressed with the LunarGlide shoes over the years. Just make sure you have a really supportive shoes when you first start running. I wore Asics for a couple years when I started doing longer distances. I eventually switched to Nike’s because they look cooler lol.
    Hope you are feeling better, not a fun way to end the weekend.

    • I’m thinking about getting the neon ones! Right now I have an older pair of Nike shoes but I’m not even sure what kind they are. They’re still okay but I’d definitely love to have a newer pair that’s more specific to running. Thanks! I am doing better. It certainly was an eventful weekend but luckily the soreness I’m still feeling isn’t anywhere near as bad as the pain I was having before I got the tooth removed – so in the end it worked out. Just sucked that it had to happen on a day when everything was closed haha!
