Our Appetizer.: During lunch, lets be tourist in our own city

During lunch, lets be tourist in our own city

I am so excited to be co-hosting my first Weekly Wrap Up with two of my favorite bloggers and I actually met one of them this past week. Therefor, this Weekly Wrap Up holds a special place in my heart. This past week has been amazing. I've been spending time with amazing friends and spending a lot of time at my apartment which is starting to feel more and more like home. 


The week started with being a tourist on our own city during our lunch break. V and I met up for Chipotle for lunch and then walked around downtown Cleveland. It was so nice and relaxing to get out of the office and actually enjoy the weather.


This past week I got together with Rachael from The Rachael Way. We met a B Spot which is a Michael Symon restaurant in the Cleveland area. It's more of a burger place than his normal upscale places. While we both enjoyed the Fun Guy burger we both also thought it was strange how they didn't have ranch and we couldn't substitute a veggie patty for a normal burger patty. I mean come on, what American restaurant doesn't have ranch!? The other night my parents came over to my new apartment with pizza and beer. It was so nice to have them over. 


Here are some quick pictures of my apartment. I adore the fireplace but I need more decorations. I am not the biggest fan of the color purple but I fell in love with the couch so I had to purchase it. I ran into a few issues with the original couch not being able to fit through the door of the apartment so I had to purchase the loveseat instead of the couch. My TV is amazing, I love it. I think the best part of my apartment is my bedroom, I love my headboard and I am so glad I found something made from leather. I had to add in that quote just because moving out of my parents house has been a great step for me and I know there are some people that think I shouldn't have moved out. Basically from now on I'm doing what makes me happy, I don't care what others think. Life is too short to worry about others opinions. 


I love spending time on my balcony with coffee in hand and reading blogs. My bedroom needs a little decorating but the bedroom set is out of this world. I love my TV stand, a cute someone helped me put it together. And my view from the balcony isn't too bad. I'm like 10 feet from the pool which is a huge plus :) 

Hope everyone enjoyed their week! Now I have to go make some adult drinks, put on my bikini and hit the pool!

I wanna hear about your week.

  2. How does a restaurant not have ranch? & not substituting for a veggie burger? Lame! & I love your new apartment, isn't decorating and setting up a new place so fun? Is this your first place?

    1. I know!! I mean come on, give me ranch and let me sub! Decorating is really fun but also a little stressful because I want to make sure what I pick out is cute and that everything goes well together. Yes, this is my first place and it's the first time out on my own. It's a little strange coming home to an empty house but I've gotten used to it.

    1. I will definitely keep your advice in mind ... "just do you and fuck the rest"! I need to be more like you, I always put other's feelings and whatnot before mine and I always get hurt.

    1. Thanks! I love the fireplace but I don't think I'll ever use it because it's a wood burning fireplace and with my luck I will burn the whole building down.
