This weekend was what I wish every weekend was like. Spent with great girl friends, relaxing, bubbles, deep conversations about change and new chapters and of course, lots of laughs.
Friday evening, post-shopping, I spent the night relaxing and cleaning my house after a pretty emotionally draining week (more coming on this in the near future). After wine and watching Grey’s Anatomy and sobbing through the episode, I was especially ready for hanging out with some of my favorite ladies this weekend.
To start Saturday off, I hosted a Stella & Dot party with the lovely Jenna. A mimosa and yogurt bar was the perfect combo for all of the ladies while looking at the lovely necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings. Oh, and did you know Stella & Dot sells bags now? They are pretty much adorable and all of us loved them. This was the perfect opportunity to get together some of my friends to just catch up and relax.
Post a quick nap on Saturday afternoon, Jessica and I had a great girls night out planned – Green Day’s American Idiot was in town at Playhouse Square! I’ve been excited about this since it was announced last year. Little known fact about me, in addition to my pop music, I am in love with Green Day (like since the Dookie days). I had a crush on Billie Joe for the longest time and when I saw them perform at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductions a couple of years ago, I fell more in love. I’d love to go to one of their concerts.
I could see where Green Day’s American Idiot may not be for everyone but personally, I loved it. It could also be because I feel like the American Idiot album is one that really defines a generation. I’ve listened to Green Day’s album a million times probably and never realized that it really and truly does tell a story. The cast was absolutely unbelievable and I swear the one cast member looked just like Tre Cool. The cast members voices really told the story of their characters as they effortlessly weaved in and out of Green Day songs. And the live band on stage. Just jaw dropping. Both Jessica and I walked out in awe of the show and the cast. I would love to see the show again because I’m sure I missed something during the show.
What great Cleveland event or location did you take in this weekend?
p.s. don’t forget, this Friday is Dazzle the District and I have a giveaway happening!
