don't forget to enter my GAP jeans and cleveland's a plum t-shirt giveaways! i'm picking the winners wednesday night so you have until then to leave your comment!
why is it that even after the most relaxing of weekends you still are exhausted come monday morning?
after landing back in cleveland friday afternoon from phoenix i had about an hour or so to take a nap before heading to beachwood for the dress for success cleveland gala. it was good times with good friend all for a good cause.
after the event me, lzone, amy and cari all headed to the famous velvet tango room. i'm horrible and haven't been there in forever even though the amazing owner paulis reads this blog, lives in my building and i see him all the time - shame on me. but i'm SO glad we headed there friday evening because i fell in love with the place all over again.
first off the VERY knowledgeable and personable stephanie answered our 267 drink questions recommending and finding the perfect cocktail for each of us - it was awesome.
i had three drink varieties, an old fashioned, which lzone took a little sip of and said it put hair on her chest, a dark and stormy, ginger beer, gosling's black seal rum and lime, and my new absolute most favorite drink IN THE WORLD, the moscow mule.
oh my god, i wish i was drinking it right now. a combination of ginger beer, vodka and lime served in a freezing cold copper mug, a moscow mule from the velvet tango room is a must try for anyone in cleveland.
also while we were there we got to witness paulis putting on a stunning flambe show. if you haven't been to the velvet tango room ever or lately you must go very soon.
after VTR i met up with some other friends and went to tremont taphouse and hooples which are a couple more of my favorite cleveland bars that you should also check out.
saturday morning got up at super early to get cubby and i tickets for the sufjan stevens concert at the beachland ballroom in september and i then made the trek to canton for two full days of fun in the sun.
while swimming and hangout out with the family at my cousins pool we got to playing with my new flip minoHD camcorder courtesy of gap born to fit.
i don't know how the following video happened but it did. basically during the first two pieces you will see my cousin jenna try to see how many FROZEN (makes it was harder) grapes she can fit in her mouth.
not to be outdone my MOTHER decides to try. let's just say that seeing my mother with TWENTY frozen grapes in her mouth sends me into complete hysterics.
apparently my family is full of other stupid human tricks which you will see in this video, fist in mouth (twss), eye crossing, tongue tricks, eyebrow lifting.....
i don't know whether to be proud or embarrassed. i'm going to go with both, because i can't NOT laugh when i look at my mom and cousins in this video.
and to think i wonder where i get it from...
i have no words.
have a great week everyone!
