Surround Yourself Only With Those Who Lift You Higher

Aint that the truth? Sometimes we forget the awesome people in our life who really do lift us up, and focus too much on helping those who are bringing us down!

Put those hands up! Higher and hiiiigher!

Well I am so happy to say I had a VERY uplifting weekend in CLE. Friday I took a happy walk up to Happy Hour at the Buckeye Beer Engine (scoff--my very first time there--see what I mean about overlooking what's right in front of you!) And I met these AMAZING friends for dinner and drinks:

Gina, Justin, me, Sara & Ryan

Tuscan Burger: Applewood smoked bacon, rosemary goat cheese, roasted red peppers and caramelized balsamic onions.
Stopppp it!

After dinner, we headed back to Gina and Justin's home and had the most epic awesome dance party I've ever had the chance to participate in. It started with a few Buckeye Growlers to go--then playing Just Dance...

Clearly I was getting waaaaaay into my dance moves! Win!

The night got pretty silly/wonderful, and ended with a 1 AM hour long dance party finale complete with multiple strobe lights, a smoke machine, bumping bass and some serious sore legs the next day. Best. Night. EVER!

 On Saturday, I headed to brunch at this hidden gem in Tremont, Fat Cats (or as Jeff likes to call it, "The Tubby Kitty"). We sat outside and enjoyed the gorgeous first official day of FALL!

Zucchini and Chorizo Omelet-so tasssssty!
And obviously, when a girl needs a fool-proof pick me up....we headed over to the glorious heavenly place known as Lilly's Chocolates for dessert. Take note gentleman: a woman will NEVER turn down handmade chocolates from Lilly's
Meet the chocolates here
T.A. really pumped about her first Lilly's purchase and experience :)
How could this bubbly friend, adorable decor and smell of fresh chocolate NOT get you higher!?

Later in the evening I headed to my friend's birthday party (Tremont-loving Saturday!!)
Albin Sisters and me

Well played photo-bombing, sir.

Look who I found meow! :)

Celebrating the end of the night with the birthday girl and a giant pizza from Edison's!

Such a fantastic weekend. Definitely need to rest up after all that action, eating, dancing, and festivities! What did I learn about myself and CLE this weekend?
