especially the vegan 28 year old alexa. she doesn't eat enough to be drinking what she does.
ok, i'm done talking in the third person, that's just obnoxious.
so the update on my vegan 30 days is that it is going surprisingly well.
it's been two weeks since i started and i have lost ten pounds. TEN POUNDS! it's awesome.
i was really proud of myself this weekend being at home and not cheating once. at the wedding reception though the only thing i could eat was the dinner salad - so i drank my dinner. vodka, it does a body good - i'm thinking that's why i grayed out by the end of the night. oops.
so onto the recap, mostly in pics cause i'm lazy tonight.
so thursday night sissy!, MOB, beaver, foxxy, wonger, bird, alymcjew, georgia peach, dr wild, rab, meiser and i all headed to fahrenheit in tremont for dinner.
shockingly this was my first time there and i don't know what too me so long to get there. this place was awesome. great decor and and a fabulous new summer menu - i was so excited to have my one non vegan meal for my birthday dinner there.
when we walked into the place i was surprised by not one but two bottles of pink prosecco waiting on the table for me from my dear dear friend poo poo. anything bubbly to drink makes me happy - thank you poo poo. i wish you were there with us.
also, alymcjew made me vegan cookies. seriously, so amazing of her even more so because i knew it was not an easy feat. thanks aly!!
now this is where i get mad at myself for not taking a group picture. ugh. oh well.
everyone got tons of varieties of food but the most popular choices were the pizzas and scallops with gnocci and mushroom. i chose the latter. the dish was beyond delicious and i will be going back to get it again. the beet salad was tasty as well.
the best part though was chef rocco hooking us up with not one complimentary dessert for my birthday but TWELVE.
yes, TWELVE complimentary desserts. one for each of us. from cookies and milk, chocolate lava cake, macadamia cheesecake and butterscotch mousse (our favorite, see right) - we got hooked up.
it was oh so nice of fahrenheit to do, thats what i call excellent service.
i guess one can't resist a table full of hot girls.
after dinner we walked across the street to the flying monkey where we met up with more friends (boys were now allowed) and we took over the patio.
drinks and shots were bought and i had a blast. isn't that the point?
on our way home (thanks gus bus and wonger for driving), sissy and i found a couple of bowling trophies in the back seat of wonger's car. why there were in the car i'm not sure but we put the poor guys in some naughty positions. i think they actually enjoyed it though.
so i'm thinking that the above pictures prove that i am still a child - well i'm still a child after a lot of cocktails on my birthday.
i have an excuse. sorry mom.
friday night sissy and i headed home to canton for some family time. too bad i promptly went to my friend keter o's house. there is something about going to a keg party with my north canton friends that makes me happy.
although i did almost kick a dude in the shin because he was bad talking cleveland. you don't do that around me. no way.
of course the boys played a ridiculous amount of poker while the girls drank wine. pretty standard. mishler, biscuit, j-birdie and i had girl time and before i knew it i may or may not have drank too much wine. oops. it was still my birthday weekend right?
while everyone was late night pizza eating i was eating animal crackers. somehow i found this very ironic. the temporary vegan girl munching on animal crackers.
i thought i was hilarious chanting "don't eat me, don't eat me!". emphasis on thought.
saturday my mom, sissy and i had a wedding of a very good friend of the family (the son of one of my mom's best and oldest friends). it was a great wedding with tons of dancing and catching up with friends and laughing.
it was weird seeing some of the "kids" i once babysat for drinking. i may or may not have been contributing to their cause though. oops everyone was with their parents, i'm in the clear ; )
check out my hot momma's - mary jo, diane, my mom and heidi - these ladies have been friends for almost 50 years. 50 years!
after the wedding we headed over to my cousin's house for an OPA! party and this is where everything gets a bit fuzzy. i guess i ended up at keter o's house again and thankfully sissy came and picked me up. no need for drinking and driving.
sunday my sissy and i headed over to our yiayia's (grandma) house for breakfast. we sat and visited and watched casablanca. it was a pretty close to perfect morning.
after breakfast we went to see get smart. which pretty much just solidified my girl crush on anne hathaway. i want to be her friend. go see the movie though, it was very cute.
ok, so this recap here?
waaaaaaay too long. i'm bored just typing it out.
if you made it through though, i congratulate you.
back to regularly scheduled posting tomorrow. phew.
have a good one kids.
