Hi all!

I want to tell you the winner of the Chocolate lovers giveaway. I used for assistance.

Congrats Amanda! You won two bags of Adora Calcium. :-) Woot!


Whatcha doing Thursday?

I wanted to let you know this this Thursday, February 23 from 5:30-8:30 there will be a happy hour held at ABC the Tavern to benefit Blondes vs. Brunettes (BvB), an organization dedicated to fighting Alzheimer’s Disease. I have recently taken on the role of running BvB Cleveland’s Twitter account (follow us!).

Here are the details:

Where: ABC the Tavern in Ohio City

When: Thursday, Feb. 23rd from 5:30 -8:30 p.m.

Why: To help us recruit players, coaches and committee members! (Or, just have fun!)

Please forward to your friends and see the Facebook invite:

The happy hour will be featuring free admission, cheap drinks, and free appetizers! We would love to see you there – it’s sure to be a good time. Also, if you can or cannot make it, please considering blogging about this event, following @bvbcle on Twitter, and/or mentioning it on your Facebook account. I really appreciate your help and hope to see you on Thursday!


Anywho, originally, I was really excited for this long weekend but then I became sick as a dog on Saturday. Ugh. At least it was on a long weekend instead of having to miss work (which would be impossible this week!).

Friday night was fun though! Jen, Alicia, Amanda, and I plus our significant others (Matt, Hans, Scott, and Todd) all went to Deagans and then bowling for a fun night out. <—- I love how our significant others all have Twitter. <3

I started with the Deviled Eggs… which are amazing. Seriously.

Then I had the Spicy Shrimp Tacos. Yum.

Todd and I split the Pommes Frites (fancy schmancy french fries which were to die for. I wish I was more of a food writer, but trust me, these were good).

Deagan, himself, offered complimentary dessert to our table. I was kinda food-star struck. (“Um, HI. I am Julie and I love your restaurant. Can I bathe in the same bowl you make the deviled eggs in? K? Thanks.“) The desserts were incredible. If it was socially acceptable to lick the platter they came on, we each would have. In fact, I think a couple of us were eying each other to see who would do it first.

Hi, Deagan.


After dinner, we went bowling at an event that benefit Secondhand Mutts (see a post on Why CLE? for more info). It was a jolly good time. We played three games and it’s imperative that I tell you that I beat Todd by 15 points in one game. He beat me in the other two but I’m not going to blog about that. You know what else? I have tendonitis in my right arm (it’s slowly going away though, thanks to Bikram) and really, I shouldn’t even be bowling. Can you imagine how much I’ll kick his arse once my arm heals? (Um, is anyone else this competitive?). Hehe.

Evidence 1:

Evidence 2:

I did well because my nail polish matched my bowling bowl. #fact

On Saturday morning, Todd and I went to Bikram together (he has been going a few times and really likes it!). Throughout the whole class, my nose was incredibly runny and I was so uncomfortable. I have never had this happen in class before – I was really getting sick. I even had to ask for a tissue during class since I ran out of my supply. Ugh.

On Saturday and Sunday I stayed in and worked on getting better. I am still not 100%, but I’m sure I will be tomorrow (gooooooo optimism!). At least, I am crossing my fingers.

I finally caught up on the Bachelor episodes. Since I don’t have cable, I watch them online so I really have to make time to watch them. Can you believe who was kicked off yesterday? I almost cried. :-( I can’t wait until next week… it looks so good.

Anyways, I will be back soon! I hope you have a super week!

Such a fab time on Friday! Also, Matt’s face when Deagan brought the desserts is priceless. So glad there is photographic evidence of it.

Matt’s face is hilarious, but look at the laser focus of Hans’ stare on that peanut butter pie. At least we know the way to our men’s hearts!!!

So much good food, so many great people – Friday night was perfection in my book!!

Love this post – looks like a great time was had by all! I agree that the boys’ faces are PRICELESS! Next time I go bowling, I’m going to pick my ball according to my nail polish — maybe that will help my game :o)

Great pictures (except the one of me looking like Fidel Castro). Thanks for coming in and blogging.
