friends, sun, sand and a summer ball game

I don't know about everyone else but I sort of feel like last week kicked my butt in a few ways with lonnnnng hours, and I was literally counting down the minutes until I could meet my friends before the Indians game to cheers with a summer shandy in hand.

While those friends headed to the game, I went to stop two of the night at Chartreuse for an Art in the Petit Parc party to catch up with a group of friends who I don't think I've seen in the past month. Clearly, we connect on every social network but we haven't actually met up in person between busy work and travel schedules in what seems like at least a month.

Charity and company hosted a few of these art events last summer/fall and it's this awesome gathering of local artists from everything to photography to clothes to jewelry with some snacks from a local vendor and this time it was Poppo Wags. Say hello to the best popped kettle corn - these ladies were fabulous and didn't care that we camped right up next to their table.

Considering I'm always looking to add to my ever-growing jewelry collection, I made sure to stop by Modern Pixie to check out the very delicate and pretty earrings and Stash Style for her amazing mix of real chandelier jewel earrings, re-worked rosaries and overall shabby chic style. I first found Shannon and her kick-ass style maybe two years ago when she had a store in Chagrin Falls and it's like this girl is inside my brain with how I want to pull together my bedroom in the next month. I'm still not sure how she pulls such vintage items and makes them fresh again - like out of an Anthropologie store - but she does and it all comes together perfectly.
Bonjour!; petit parc entrance; Modern Pixie jewerly; she has my name written all over this jewelry - rosary and moncles!

On Saturday, I drove to Rocky River instead of the usual spot at Edgewater with Suzanne to spend the next few hours soaking in the absolutely PERFECT weather that was Saturday day. Could it have been any more perfect?! No, the answer is no!

Instead of just pre-partying for the Indians game like on Friday, I actually did make it to the game (granted I was a few hours late because I was poolside for the early afternoon) to meet up with Gina and the large crew of people she pulled together on Sunday.

Was it hot? Yes.

Did we all glisten all game? Yes.

Did we make it the entire game in the stands? Ummmmmm.... no.

Did we have fun? You bet your 90 degree summer day we did!

Let's wrap up the last full week of July, shall we?

I mean I wish I was in Cleveland so we could have a proper summer weekend together that didn't involve a conference, ha.
