On Friday, I attended the Best of Cleveland magazine awards with a group of girls who included Alexa, Always a bridesmaid, Cleshopaholic and I even finally met Heischic in person! Although, I think I had to coerce her off the escalator going down to come over to where we were sitting. As it turns out, we only live a few miles from each other and even work out the same gym.
The event was super cool because we were able to go all over the Rock Hall from the bottom all the way to the top, sampling different food from some new places I've never heard of on the west side. (I need to venture from the east side a little more.)
I tried a red velvet cupcake from Main Street Cupcakes and two macarons from Coquette Patisserie. Plus, a few glasses of wine and some food from a few other "best of" cleveland.
Here are the only two pictures I have to prove we were, in fact, present at the event:

Saturday was a relatively relaxed day that started off with my second week of training with @jenarenschield, followed by a lunch with my aunts at Market in Rocky River and a lazy night in with the BF.
On Sunday, we visited a staple here in the midwest known as a farm, but more specifically, an apple farm where they make some of the best apple fritters.
Even though they didn't have the fairytale pumpkins I saw at Trader Joe's, we ended up buying two small ones with a lot more stuff then I anticipated. The BF is like a little kid in the candy store buying blueberry glazed donuts, cider, apples and some crazy chocolate-covered peanut butter candy.
Oh, and two caramel-covered apples, that I will gladly help him eat!
And, 30 years ago today, my parents were married and my dad accused me of forgetting! That's right people - these two are in it for the long haul. Thirty years of marriage, two awesome kids later plus three dogs (and one adorable cat) they are still together and having fun. For the past 10 days, I've been receiving text and pictures from my dad as they vacationed all over Florida from Jacksonville, the Keys and Fort Myer's Beach together. .

Happy anniversary to two of the best people I know! (Mom- no yelling about the 1976 photo either. I think it's cute and you will just have to deal with it.)
