you can't beat a holiday weekend

After a last-minute NYC trip for work, I was running through LaGuardia like a mad woman to make sure I was on my new flight because my other one got cancelled because I had a serious three-day weekend ahead of me.

Did you love yours?

Because I thoroughly enjoyed myself for three long glorious days with friends.

Saturday day I joined a group of friends for a surprise party for Johnny P. He was the big 3-0 so family and friends celebrated with the most ridiculous spread of food from hotdogs to sausage to baked beans to taco dip to deviled eggs to dirt dessert to birthday cake to nutella chocolate cupcakes with bacon on top.

Look who is 30!

Saturday night I joined three girlfriends at Market to talk and laugh over a few vodka sodas where we noticed that most of the guys in there were all kids. KIDS, I tell you - I swear to god I thought they were going to come up and ask us to buy beer for them. They didn't, but it would've made a great story.....

On Sunday, I let CleShopaholic talk me into attending my first real yoga class at Inner Bliss Yoga at 8:30 in the morning. Two things here - 1) I don't get up early after a night of drinking 2) my morning workouts start at 10. THAT is morning to me and somehow I was up and in Lakewood at 8:30 a.m.

So, I set a new record of making it to yoga, which might as well have been hot yoga, because I legitimately sweat my ass off doing poses and contorting my body in ways I didn't know possible.

I drove over to Edgewater Park to catch some rays but I didn't get quite the tan I was hoping for since the clouds seemed to hang over the lake for a good two hours. My friend Cortney joined me with drinks and I proceeded to read excerpts from the third 50 Shades book and then imitated a scene where he cuffs each leg to corresponding wrist - think happy baby pose for all you yoga lovers. How awkward!

Cortney brought the good stuff!

After the unsuccessful beach trip,  my friends and I  dined at Barrio in Tremont for pitchers of margaritas, guac and tacos for the evening as we planned a 50 Shades night out in CLE. I'm still not quite sure what exactly we were planning to do but we ended up on the patio Treehouse to close the night. We did not find a Christian Grey - but the search isn't over just yet.

While this photo doesn't do it justice, Lisa is short.

On Memorial Day, I headed back to Edgewater to sweat my entire body weight off because it was 90 something degrees for the 2 hours I lasted outside then headed over to my BFF's house for what I hope will be an annual party with friends, babies and cornhole.

baby brooklyn is getting so big!

Insert yourself here, skully!

And with that....here's to a what will no doubt be a long and exhausting four day work week. But it's summer people, let the summer of fun begin!
