what a lovely weekend....

What a long weekend. Oh, how I’ve enjoyed my longer than expected holiday weekend.
It was fantastic. I loved every bit of it and don’t want to rejoin the working world yet. It’s been so much fun.

I began my holiday weekend a bit earlier than expected. I was able to introduce the BF to a bunch of my extended family, although I wish it was under happier circumstances but life happens.

During the day on Saturday, I safely tanned myself with a friend, agreed that my backyard was perfect for an in-ground pool and toasted with champagne and chocolate-covered pretzels. Saturday night my friends and I headed down to Tremont to have dinner at the Taphouse before we headed over to the Greek festival for gyros and Greek beer. It was an absolutely beautiful night after what was a hot afternoon.

After the Taphouse, we went over to the Greek festival where we were very under dressed. VERY under dressed. But, we managed to enjoy ourselves and eat some fried dough with Alexa. We also watched a 17-year-old Casanova attempt to dance with every girl who walked by. If he struck out, he decided to break dance instead. (I WISH I would've taken video of this. He made our night.)

On Sunday, I managed to grab another few hours of sun and headed to my first ever Blossom Time Fest in Chagrin Falls. I've lived on the east side for four years and somehow I never knew this existed or have attended. Never fear - I made it this year.

This starts the summer festival experience for me. Oh, how I LOVE funnel cakes.

I instantly beeline for it at any and every festival I attend. After quickly eating our funnel cake, we headed over to Jekyll’s and sat outside on the patio to enjoy a few John Daly cocktails. However, I didn’t know we were going to be sitting next to Mr. and Mrs. PDA. I’m not talking about a little kiss here and a hand hold there.
Um…. I’m talking full-out-I’m-going-lick-her-neck-up-and-down. I don’t even think they were 21. They couldn’t have been. Everyone was staring at them because a) they were wondering how old they were and b) how many times was she going to massage his hair and put it in the pony tail for him. If you were wondering, she did it two times while we were sitting next to her in between licks and sloppy kisses. Being the blogger that I am, I tried to take video or even a picture of the love fest but he was making out with her with his eyes open, so I could never grab a picture. Plus, the boys were cracking jokes that they kept turning around and giving us the evil eye.

Now, back to the work week reality.
