This weekend sure flew by! It seemed as if I was always on the go. I definitely enjoy weekends like these because I feel so accomplished. But I also really love my lazy weekends and so far not much is on the agenda for next weekend. I hope my couch is ready for me because I have some serious reality TV to catch up on 😉
To start my busy weekend off I headed to a free Yoga class at Puma Yoga Studio in Lakewood, Ohio.
I had never been to this studio before and I was excited to give it a try. My boss recommend I go since they were having free classes on Saturday. I can’t pass up a free class!
I’m glad I didn’t pass up the free class because it was a good one. The class was called Rise and Shine since it was at 7:30AM. I prefer doing Yoga early in the morning when I have not had anything to eat. My stomach definitely appreciates it too 😉
The class was a nice blend of flowing poses, holding poses, and deep breathing and relaxation. I would definitely recommend this studio to anyone in the Cleveland area. It had a great atmosphere and the staff working were very friendly and helpful. Plus their prices for classes when not free seem pretty reasonable.
After Yoga I hit up a local Starbucks to get myself a hot coffee and to surprise Andy with one of his favorite treats: a Mocha Frappucinno (also scoring some major girlfriend points if I do say so myself!)
A Yoga class and a Starbucks coffee was a great way to spend a Saturday morning!
Saturday night we had yet another wedding to attend. This makes it three for the summer. But I’m certainly not complaining. What’s not to love about busting some serious moves on the dance floor, eating great food, and boozing my face off? Nothing!!
Andy’s family friend was getting married to his long-time girlfriend. Andy’s parents, brother Joe, and sister-in-law Lindsay were also attending so I was looking forward to spending time with everyone.
The wedding and reception were both held at the same place, a local Hilton Hotel. In fact, all three of the weddings I attending this summer (See Kelly’s here and Sam’s here) were also this way. I really liked not having to travel from place to place. Super convenient, especially for out of town guests.
The wedding ceremony was short, sweet, and beautiful. We had a cocktail hour shortly after where we munched on cheese, crackers, fruit, bruschetta, and mini egg rolls.
We also spent a lot of time at the bar…Naturally 😉
The families of the bride and groom sure like to party…there was a great assortment of beer, wine, and tons of liquor.
The dinner was served buffet style and there was an array of options including chicken, salmon, some kind of red meat (which I don’t eat so I didn’t really take a good look!), mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, salad, and rolls. It was all pretty good but I especially loved the salad since there was fresh parmesan cheese available to top it with. Yum!
The wedding cake was amaretto flavored which I’m not a huge fan of so I only had a bite. However, it was certainly a beautifully decorated cake!
The rest of the night was spent out on the dance floor where I showed off my line dancing skills busting out the “Cupid Shuffle” and “The Booty Call”. It wouldn’t be a wedding without those line dances! 🙂
Andy I woke up late on Sunday and made a
hangover special breakfast:
- Cheesy eggs
- Home Fries
- English Muffin with butter
- Extra grease for the headache
After breakfast we had to get ready to attend my friend Megan’s baby’s first birthday party. Andy was not wanting to get up:
But too bad, I made him come along with me. We ended up having a nice day out visiting with friends and celebrating little Lena’s 1st birthday.
Megan and her husband Dan provided a wonderful assortment of food and goodies to eat:
There were sandwiches, potato salad, chicken wings, chicken sausage, chips and dip, and my favorite: cake pops! I ate three of those little suckers. They are delicious (and highly addicting!)
While the adults ate lunch miss Lena had a blast eating her birthday cupcake…
And then shoving it into her uncle’s eye:
But after all the gift opening and excitement, this little one was ready for nap time:
That was our cue to go so we said goodbye to everyone and headed out to run some Sunday errands.
After running errands Andy and I vegged on the couch and ate some leftover pizza (from Pizza Friday) for dinner. Then we decided it was time to dress up Boo and Sophia in this crazy bow tie:
Sophia’s turn was next:
Andy and I are easily amused (or getting really lame!)
I hope you all had a great weekend!!
Question of the Day:
What is your favorite kind of cake? I’m a cheesecake kind of girl!
