  Flour & more!

photoHi there. How were your weekends? I’m just creeping back to business since my sister was visiting over the last few days. It was so great to have her here, we really enjoyed summer in Cleveland with the new nephew while she was here.

We explored the new Cleveland MetroParks restaurant Merwin’s for lunch on Saturday. The location is perfect for a summer cocktail on the patio while enjoying watching the boats and kayakers go by. I indulged in my first post-pregnacy margarita paired with a burger and fries, such a summer treat. If you are looking for someplace to ride bikes to and sit outside I would recommend Merwin’s at Rivergate Park for something new.

We also had the privilege to attend a special Sunday brunch hosted by Flour in Moreland Hills. We sampled many of their brunch menu items from savory dishes like the above delicious eggs benedict to nutella stuffed french toast paired with a blood orange mimosa, it was lovely. If you’ve never been to Flour for brunch summer on the patio is the perfect time to go explore. Plus, you can always hop on over to Chagrin Falls afterwards to stroll around and make your Sunday even more of a “fun day!”

I actually can’t believe we are almost in August. I guess my summer is flying by with the addition of little Baby Ninja. It’s amazing how on this journey of being a new Mom, everyday is such an adventure. Just last week I learned how to flip over a high chair to safely nestle his car seat while I enjoyed lunch at Burntwood Tavern. The hostess was so nice to me, I explained I hadn’t done that before and she replied, “see you are doing awesome and you don’t even know it” and she was right. Every outing, every new toy, every different cry or expression is a new adventure over here. While we are just starting to get out and explore Cleveland this summer, I am so appreciative to all the love; even from a stranger and how it can really make my doubts and concerns (“am I doing this right?”) slip away. Thanks everyone!

This week has lots of fun in store and this weekend, the first weekend in August is gonna be great. No rain in the forecast, art festivals, twins day, outdoor concerts and so much more. Hey Cleveland, happy summer, you are looking great!

  Friday fun!


Hey Cleveland and happy Friday! Looks like we are in for a lovely Labor Day weekend weather wise…perhaps a bit of a drizzle here and there but overall a great one for beach, barbecues, football and those final few summer cocktails!

Yesterday I the pleasure of lunching at Flour. I always forget what a wonderful place it is and the bar set up; to die for. Plus, they have these deep fried goat cheese stuffed olives…you’ve got to try them some time. I sorta want another plate right now.

Lots of fun things happening in the 216 this weekend…but just a few reminders. Tonight is the big yoga, music and everything CLE event “Believe in CLE” hosted by Innerbliss Yoga, Lululemon and the Rock Hall. The event kicks off at 7pm with the actual yoga flow at 8pm. Be there early as they are expecting hundreds of yogi’s from all over Northeast, Ohio. I am psyched!

Tomorrow kicks off the first Buckeyes football game of the season. Kick off against Buffalo at noon. O.H.I.O. Go scarlet & gray!

This weekend is also the perfect time to get out and explore the area beaches one more time. My favorite? I like them all for different reasons….Huntington when I only have a few hours to spend in the sun as it is close to home, Edgewater when I want to meet up with friends and spend the day enjoying the beach PLUS all the incredible people watching and if I want to feel like I am going on a mini vacation…Mentor Headlands, they have the best sand! Bust out your sun screen & beach towels it’s one more time!

Oh…and don’t forget about those white pants and shoes…you’ve GOT to wear them this weekend…HA! Who really follows that rule anymore? White jeans look fantastic with a chunky cable knit sweater and jean jacket in the fall…while you are picking pumpkins of course. :)

Have a fantastic Labor Day everybody. Don’t forget to enter the Land of Nod giveaway from my previous post. Winner to be drawn on Tueday!
