Weekend Wrap Up : FriendTime

This past weekend was really great.
And delicious.
Our very good friends came down on Friday for a kid free weekend in Cincinnati and we were so excited to see them.
Friday night I whipped up a BIG pot of THE CHILI and cornbread.
Along with a side of wine in this adorable cup that Kady brought me. 
(p.s she has more for sale in her Etsy store, these make great Christmas gifts!)

Saturday morning I had the opportunity to run the Girls on the Run 5k downtown. Girls on the Run is such a great organization and the race was so fun and inspiring to see all the little girls running their hearts out!

The rest of Saturday was spent watching football and having a great, no plans, day.
We spent the afternoon at a newish brewery downtown called Rhinegeist.
 Then dinner and all of it's yumminess came around. 
A brand new Cooper's Hawk just opened up near us and we were very excited to try it.
I had been to one in Columbus and was so excited that we were getting one.  They have great wine and an even better menu.
I had white truffle risotto with short ribs for dinner.
I'm still thinking about how good it was.

Sunday was a very lazy day but I did manage to cross a few Christmas items off the list and order our Christmas cards! Those will be revealed soon enough!
Santa is trying to get an early start this year!

So great that you did the GOTR 5k! I've been involved with them for a few years and this is the first race I've missed in awhile. I hadn't hear of Cooper's Hawk, but it looks like a place that I'd really like. I'll have to check it out!

I did the Girls on the Run 5k last year - they were all so cute! Though I wasn't quite in the spirit of things because I decided to have my fastest 5k time to that point and was kind of excited that I took all of those girls. Oops :)

And good to know you like the Cooper's Hawk place - super close to us!

Is that a wine sippy cup? If so, fantastic. :) Looks like a great weekend!
