Research Continues and Weekend Recap

Hey everyone!

This morning I had a research meeting. I was feeling pretty nervous because the doctor overseeing my research was going to be reading my manuscript and giving me feedback. It is definitely superficial, but wearing a cute outfit makes me feel more confident.

I had no reason to be nervous, though, because my mentor gave me GREAT feedback on my manuscript. She gave me some very minor revisions, but said it looks like it is about ready to submit! I did not enter this summer with the intention to first author a manuscript! I am so surprised and excited about what I was able to accomplish this summer.

I wanted to recap a little of the weekend. Dan and I went back to Cleveland. He had an appointment up there, and I at the last minute, decided to go with him. Friday was spent on the 4 hours car ride from Cincinnati to Cleveland and then at the doctor’s office. We went to dinner at B Spot. Then we walked around Crocker Park, an outdoor mall. That night we relaxed and watched Big Love.

On Saturday we intended to go to Cuyahoga Valley National Park, but rain was in the forecast. We didn’t want to make the 40 minute drive to the park just to get rained on. Instead, we opted for a walk around the city of Cleveland.

About 3 minutes after I took this photo, it started pouring rain. We were on a bridge where there was no shelter and we were over a mile away from the car. Needless to say, we were drenched by the time we got back to the car. It was so fun to run like a maniac in the rain, though.

Prior to our walk, we went out to breakfast at Latitude 41. I forgot to snap a photo of my breakfast until it was half eaten…

I absolutely loved Latitude 41. Dan and I both got the $4.95 Menage a Trois special. This special is available Monday-Saturday before 11am. You get 2 eggs however you like, toast, 2 bacon strips, 2 sausages, homefries, and coffee. For $1 extra, you can add 2 additional items to your breakfast which include: pan-seared oatmeal, the Ma3 quesadilla, french toast, pancake, fried tomato, fresh fruit, english muffin, an extra egg, cheese on eggs, or homemade coffee cake. Dan and I both got extras just so we could sample more of what the  restaurant had to offer. I had the pan-seared oatmeal and fresh fruit. Dan had the pancake and french toast. I was not a huge fan of the oatmeal, but I loved everything else. The french toast was amazing, though. It was like they used a cinnamon roll to make it with instead of bread.

We relaxed for the afternoon before heading out that night to celebrate Dan’s friend’s birthday.

I am making a serious conscious effort to take more pictures!

The Tower City Lights were Cleveland Cavalier’s colors! Welcome home Lebron! After a night of drinks, dinner, and fun at the casino, we had brunch with Dan’s parents on Sunday and headed back to Cincinnati.

Gotta love those freaky signs on I-71 between Cleveland and Cincinnati!

XOXO,
