I hope to have a new and sparkly site up soon!
I’ve always wanted to attend the Jump Back Ball at PlayhouseSquare but never mustered up the courage to drop the coin. I’m fairly certain I’ll bite the bullet this winter since I’ve heard time and time again it’s a party that can’t be missed!
This past Friday night at a little girls get-together, a fashion show ensued due to our host owning multiple ball gowns (southern belle!). It was in an effort to nail down who was going to wear what at this year’s JBB. It was quite the spectacle after many glasses of wine 🙂
So, who is in for this year’s Jump Back Ball??
Every time I receive an email from LivingSocial or Groupon for a bootcamp on the westside of Cleveland, I always click to learn more. Once in a while I’ll even forward the email to a few friends to see if they’re interested, too. That’s when my interests wanes and I forget about making the purchase (aka laziness sets in).
However, I finally pulled the trigger and bought last week’s LivingSocial bootcamp for Fitness Edge, which has 3 westside locations: Rocky River, Lakewood & Avon. For $25, I will get my butt handed to me 5 times. At least I have a friend to endure the pain with…it’s a good thing because we signed up for Wednesday’s 5 a.m. class. Yes, 5 a.m. That means I’ll need to wake up by 4:30 a.m. UGH.
Here’s to you, Hal! We can do this!
Question: Have you ever done a boot camp series?
Why do long weekends always fly by so quickly? Probably because I like to jam them full of awesome days and nights. This long Thanksgiving weekend was no exception.
Wednesday night, since some of my closest friends were back in town, we decided to throw a little shindig at our place (beats going to the bars on the busiest bar night of the year!).
This usually happens around midnight when we have people over…
Thursday was full of lots of laughs (maybe some tears), food and a wine coma.
Considering we were in bed by 8pm on Thanksgiving, we decided to take advantage of some of the Black Friday deals at Crocker Park. I have to admit, it wasn’t that annoying up there! Since I didn’t exactly shop local on Friday, I made up for it by buying my bro some goodies at the Cleveland Clothing Company on East 4th – it was only their second day open – go check them out immediately!
As if we hadn’t been indulging and partying enough, my brother happened to be home for his 21st birthday. What is a sister to do? I had to take him out for (a few too many) cocktails! But first, we ate.
The fact that my little brother is 21 makes me feel like a dinosaur.
By the time Sunday rolled around, I was stuffed to the gills…but we still had Dean’s family Thanksgiving to attend. That being said…I’ll be at the gym this week 🙂
So, do you go out to the bars on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving or do you stay the heck out of dodge?? After this year, I’m going to try my best to avoid them at all costs!
This picture cracks me up every time: I only allowed Dean one glass of wine a few years ago at Thanksgiving! Hehe…
What’s your favorite dish on Thanksgiving? For me it’s a tie between mashed potatoes and green bean casserole! Oh, and the pies. And the turkey. And the wine. And the yams…
