Falling Into CLE Weekends

A little blog-keeping: don’t forget you have until midnight on the 19th to enter to win tickets to Yellowcake’s Hullabaloo Fashion Show

This past week brought the feeling of Fall in Cleveland and I can’t lie that it made my heart happy. The cooler weather, sweaters and a weekend full of happiness.

Friday I had my heart set on going home, putting on leggings and a sweater and watching a movie. But how was I going to refuse a glass of wine with the girls from work? Which turned into a couple glasses of bubbles, wine and dinner at Hodge’s. Oops. But it was a needed night with the girls, lots of laughter and getting to know each other better. (Not to mention while at dinner, I ran into another favorite Chef – Chef Sawyer and the one and only Chef’s Widow…these two are just adorbs!)

Saturday, Kimberly and I ventured out together to Beachwood to one of our favorites – Saks Fifth Avenue. For Fashion Night Out, we (Kimberly, Nadine and I as well as other CLE Bloggers and Saks customers) were invited to attend a progressive dinner and sneak peak at upcoming trends for the Fall and Winter. We were also invited by Estee Lauder to come back and have facials and a make-up application. Neither of us were going to turn down a facial and it was needed. Some girl time, fun makeup and relaxing was the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Saturday evening, I hauled it out to the East Side (which everyone knows that I rarely do….I can make it to Little Italy/Cleveland Heights and then I get lost) for Chefs Unbridled to help out the Hodge’s Cleveland crew. What a fantastic event for an awesome organization. I ran into a few familiar faces (and there may have been an experience where someone pretended to be a puma…I have no words for what went on at that point).

Fieldstone Farms is one of the largest therapeutic riding centers and seriously gorgeous. There are a wide variety of programs people can be involved with, as well as opportunities to volunteer. Check it out and see if this is an organization you’d like to get involved in!

Sunday…well it was Browns day and if you take a look at the score, you can imagine the mood I was in due to it. There’s always next week, right?

What’s your favorite way to spend a Fall Weekend?

(p.s. I was clearly a bad blogger/friend and got literally no pictures this weekend of all the fun. Next time…)

    Puma? Who would ever do that?!

    Sounds like a fabulous weekend!

  2. So glad you made it out to the eastside for Chefs Unbridled. Loved meeting you…even though it was far too brief.

  3. Sounds like a lot of fun – the weather was fantastic for all sorts of outdoor fun this weekend. We had Scott’s mom and grandmother in town and hit up Sparx City Hop and the Tremont Art/Cultural Festival on Saturday. Very happy that Fall is here!
