Weekend Adventures (and Happy Birthday Mom!)

This weekend was spent celebrating the woman that brought me into this world, the woman that helped me become the person I am today, and genuinely one of the strongest people I know. I don’t know what I’d do without you, Mom! Happy birthday!

Mike & I ready for a fun weekend πŸ™‚
Watermelon martini at Bonefish Grill in Independence, Ohio.
Best martini I’ve ever had (thus far). Holy yum!
Watermelon martini on the left, orange-mango martini on the right.
Drinks to start off Mom’s birthday celebration weekend!
We checked out the Cleveland Oktoberfest on Saturday, and since Mike is Polish, we just had to get Polish food! We love some pierogies, potato pancakes, and Mike & mom love kielbasa.
Got my first PSL of the year, and fell in love with this out-of-season Starbucks mug. Luckily I found it on Amazon! (I have a weird obsession with ampersands… I’m strange.)
Heinen’s finds per a suggestion from some co-workers. I’m told the perfect blend is 25% Creme Brulee and 75% Pumking… we shall see!
We had a crab feast for Mom on Monday night! So. Good.Β We did it at home, surprisingly! We weren’t sure how it would turn out, but it was SO easy (and a LOT cheaper than going out to eat).

We also did some shopping (Cole Haan heels on sale at TJ Maxx!) and took a nice long drive through the Rocky River Reservation – SO pretty & serene. I can’t wait to explore the area on our runs/bike rides.

Mike & I also binge-watched Orange is the New Black & finished it over the weekend (with a couple of 3-4AM nights…) – so worth it.Β I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend – check out what’s going on in September around CLE!
