  Some fall Friday ramblings!!!


Can we get a huge round of cheer “HOORAY” for our Cleveland Indians!!! Way to go guys, we are so proud of you. Thank you for another awesome reason to celebrate living in CLEVELAND. World Series here we come!!!

Last night we took Ninja Toddler to the Ringling Brothers Circus at the Q. It was seriously so, so cool. While they may have retired the elephants, there was plenty of other exciting action to keep us all super entertained and at the edge of our seat the whole show. The opening act of all the acrobats walking on the moon was so visually incredible, it was perfect for kids and us older kids. :) The circus is in town until the 23rd. Get your tickets and don’t miss out.

Can we even just talk about Barrio Tacos and pumpkin spice lattes? Last week we took a lunch outing over to the Barrio Lakewood and I can’t stop thinking about it. Their chips, salsa, margaritas and my made-to-order taco was so yummy. If you haven’t been to one of their locations, seriously run don’t walk…unless you feel like running by a coffee shop and sipping a sweet, spicy pumpkin spice latte instead? Either way tacos or latte’s, this fall has been filled with so many awesome indian summer patio days, I am super thankful.

Have you heard about all of the fun that the team over at GroundSwell & Harness Cycle have been whipping up? Their pop up rides and yoga-about-town have been making waves all over the city…big, beautiful, inspiring waves! If you are interested in trying out one of their pop up rides or yoga classes; visit their site and reserve your spot! Just yesterday they hosted a few rides at the House of Blues…next up, the Rock Hall! See you in the saddle friends.

Thinking about your holiday shopping yet? I am planning on picking up a few of my gifts at this years Poinsettia Place presented by the Junior League of Cleveland at The Glidden House, Saturday November 19th. Support local small makers and entrepreneurs as they kick off holiday shopping season with special offerings all while enjoying brunch and a few mimosas with your friends. For more information visit their site to grab your tickets while there are a still few available.

Speaking of holiday shopping…I also just recently got the date of the Cleveland Institute of Art, holiday student sale!!! It kicks off Friday, December 2nd and runs through the weekend. I have been to this sale before and it literally always has great, affordable work for everyone. For location and time details visit their page here.

So, while this wasn’t a typical post from me I just thought I would ramble on a bit and touch base and say “hi!” Have a great weekend. Stay warm…time to bust out the warm sweaters & scarves. Happy Friday, Happy weekend everyone!

  Playing tourist in my hometown

Hello and happy Monday everybody. What a beautiful weekend living in the 216 don’t you think? Over the weekend I was a super lucky lady to have my sister and her friend visiting from the Pacific Northwest city of Seattle. An entire weekend of showing them the coolest parts of the city, visiting with some great friends and “consuming” some yummy meals & summer cocktails.

Not to share every detail of the weekend…but just a few of the tourist highlights….here we go!

photo 2-1– We walked around downtown exploring the new grounds of the Cleveland Convention Center, such wonderful, new, urban green space.


  Running in Heels : JLC Stiletto Sprint

Happy sunny Monday everybody. Hope you had a great weekend and your Monday morning was relatively painless. My weekend was super fun-filled and I am still trying to quiet my mind back to business, shaking out the fuzzy weekend haze. From farmer’s markets and an arts fest to dinner with the girls and a nauti-styled, collaborative photoshoot with some of my fave CLE-creative peeps (more to come, down the road) this weekend’s activities were a perfect example of why I love living in the 216.

I wanted to take today to give a bit of a shout out to my fellow Junior League of Cleveland members who have worked so hard to host this upcoming weekend’s Stiletto Sprint. The JLC is presenting its first annual Stiletto Sprint & Soiree August 10, 2013 at Crocker Park and we would like to extend the invite to you, come and be a part of it!

Your $30 ticket includes the actual race (a foot race in Stiletto heels for women & men), fun awards,  beer tasting and a fall fashion show. Be sure to bring flip flops for after the party! To get your tickets for this VERY fun event check out the details on the Crocker Park website here.

Still not 100% on whether I’ll be racing…let’s just say I am not the most coordinated runner, let alone in heels…but I will for sure be there to cheers my fellow dare devils on.
