not even a little lasering can slow me down

Not even a little eye surgery was going to keep me from my pre-planned week full of activities like the home opener, a GirlTalk dance party and a holiday - more on new eye balls later though.

After a good 12-hour sleep post LASIK with the help of drugs, I was up and ready for the Indians home opener to hit the patios and drink with coworkers and friends for the entire day.  (Yes, even with a little eye surgery, I was making it all day long.) I had plans,  people, and these new eyes were going with me - eye drops and sunglasses were required - and I wore them inside. FYI - my eyes were light sensitive so no, I did not think I was Paris Hilton as someone hilariously pointed out, I was just trying to have a good time without squinting in pain.

as meyers said, "instagram worthy!"

On Saturday, I took my skills to the Tremont area to play some touch football. Let's be real here - I just round around on the field and maybe once or twice catch a pass that may or may not be basically handed to me. Hey - I was a volleyball player, football isn't my sport.

Yep, that's my team in the hot pink!
If you have somehow been living under a rock, you wouldn't know that the Rock Hall Induction Week festivities have officially kicked off and with the quick purchasing power of Alexa, we grabbed tickets for the sold out show - GirlTalk - which I've always heard people rave about.

I heavily debated on what to wear to this show because it was a toss up - neon 80s gear with handbands or add glowsticks as accessories - options, options, I tell you. I opted for a little neon with a hot coral tank and leopard heels to dance and sweat away 5 lbs away to his mindblowing musical mashups of awesomeness. (Sidenote: He played 15 seconds of Bad Romance and I was in love!)

the beer line was long and, in general, not well orchestrated

To finish out the a 3-day weekend, my family and I celebrated Easter, which is my least favorite all of the holidays because the food just isn't all that fantastic in my opinion - ham? pies? really? Thanksgiving is my favorite! Anywho, my very animated family went to Flying Fig to sip on mimosas, devour biscuits and gravy, omelets, more beers, scones and desserts - apple tart anyone?

jellybeans!

family time - always memorable

Hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as my friends, family and I did, now back to your regularly scheduled program of the weekly work grind.
