Here’s a fun, easy way to style your hair for the long weekend. Find all the details at A Beautiful Mess.
It was a good weekend.
Started off with an absolutely adorable girls night / sleepover. We ate, chatted, laughed and watched the move ridiculous romantic movie: Safe Haven. The night was hosted by the lovely, Mailin. Everything looked oh so cute!
After a fun night with the gals, it was time to start packing … or at least identifying which items will stay behind vs. come along. I’m thankful for every memory, experience and adventure I’ve been on. And I’m ever so thankful for the ones I was able to capture. I hold these photos dear to my heart.
After some packing, the parents thought it would be a good idea to go car shopping & I couldn’t agree more! I’m still not sure how I ended up with this sweet ride. All I know is God is good!
My Sunday morning was spent with lovely company & a delicious breakfast at Morgan’s Restaurant. Highly recommend that place if you’re ever near the Wynwood area.
Sunday night, Jemlys and I wined and dined at iPic Theaters while watching Leo own the role of Gatsby. If you’re a fan of the book, you’ll love the movie. And don’t even get me started on the soundtrack – So good!
My life in a nutshell.
I’m relocating. Very soon as a matter of fact. I was in denial for a while but now that I’ve signed on an apartment, so it seems this whole thing is really happening. In case you are wondering… I’m leaving Miami, FL for Akron, OH. I know what you’re thinking… and you’re probably right. These two places don’t even compare. But, I’ve chosen to look at the bright side and keep a positive outlook. Honestly…how bad can Ohio reallly be? (Shoot me)
In any case, I’m not afraid, nervous or scared. I figure God’s got this all under control. & He definitely does, which is why I can sleep peacefully at night.
Now, if only all my belongings could magically pack themselves up…
Below is a little recap of my home visit this past weekend. I was able to bring along my mom, which made looking for an apartment, car, furniture, etc way more fun.
I had done some research online prior to my scheduled home visit. So I already knew what I could and could not afford as well as what I wanted. To keep the story short … I got the apartment I wanted. It’s a quaint little space – more than enough for me. And the neighborhood is friendly and adorable. The way a neighborhood should be.
After securing my apartment, mom and I treated ourselves to a delicious lunch. Followed by some car shopping and test driving. Right now, my hearts set on a Buick Verano. I know, I know… such an “old lady” car. Bite me.
Mom and I started the day with a delightful breakfast meal at The Blue Door with one of our colleagues. I loved everything about this little spot. Definitely one I’ll be visiting again.
After our food fuel, mom and I were off to explore Cleveland. On our drive to the city, mom jammed out to Alicia Keys, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry. (No, this was not my music selection. This was all her).
We visited the Kent State University, Aurora Premium Outlet Mall, West Side Market, Legacy Village and Beachwood Mall. Plus we drove around a million neighborhoods just because some houses were disgustingly adorable.
On our last day, we visited Grace Church and hit up a fun little lunch spot with one of my Ohioan friends. Then it was off to the airport.

Here’s a cute idea found on Oh Happy Day! blog.
Materials: A variety of housewarming goods, a large glass jar with a lid, a printout of your desired text, tape, opaque paint pen, ribbon
Step 1: Print out your text and tape it to the inside of the jar.
Step 2: Trace over the text with your paint pen and then remove the paper from the inside of the jar.
Step 3: Tie a ribbon onto the top of the jar.
Step 4: Fill it up with the housewarming goodies.
The gals and I went to the Florida Panthers vs Toronto Maple Leafs game for F-R-E-E. I’ve never been to a hockey game in my life so I didn’t know what to expect.
We had club level seats… delicious food … ThunderStix to hoot and holler with … & ridiculous fans to point and laugh at. All that to say, it was a quite a night.
The Panthers lost. Also,
One of my favorite people graduated yesterday … congrats, Steph! She’s worked so hard … it’s no wonder her friends and family are so proud of her. Check out how happy and presh she looked in her graduation gown.
Congrats again, Chach! We’re all super proud of your accomplishment.
