True story Tuesday…

True story.

…I slept in Friday morning with BF in his amazingly comfortable bed.

…when we woke up, he took me to go get some delicious cupcakes from, where else, my favorite cupcake shop – Main Street Cupcakes!

…then he took me to Aladdins where we split some delicious Aladdin’s hummus, cinnamon beef, rice, and falaffel! Aladdin’s will forever be one of my favorite places to eat.

…after lunch I expressed interest in getting my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season! So guess who took me to Starbucks for a latte? You guessed it! My favorite guy.

…After our Starbucks adventure, we headed back to his house for some serious rest and relaxation! We took a three hour nap!! and holy smokes was it awesome!

…we spent the rest of our Friday night making homemade sushi and watching a movie.

True story.

…on Saturday we woke up around 10am (crazy, I know!) and BF had a day of surprises planned for me!

…first we went to an early showing of “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” in 3D. Ummm… AWESOME! πŸ™‚

…then he took me out to lunch at this fantastic little BBQ place where I nibbled on some BBQ Pulled Pork (personal favorite and also what we both ate on our first date) and cornbread!

…after lunch we had tickets for The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. Which was incredible! We rode on the train for about three hours. And we listened to a guided tour and snuggled up in our train seats!

True story.

…on Sunday we headed to my parents house for a HUGE lunch of crab legs, shrimp, lobster tail, homemade mac and cheese, and sweet potato fries! HEAVEN! Oh my gosh. It was incredible. BF and I ate a lot of delicious seafood.

…sadly I then had to head back to Syracuse.

So I had an awesome weekend. TRUE STORY.
