We’ll, it looks like us South Floridians may be in for a very wet and windy weekend. I was going to put together a list of local events for you guys, but let’s face it, Tropical Storm Erika will have most of us on the couch with Netflix, listening to the rain come down!
There is one event I hope you all check out, before it gets stormy. Furry Friends Adoptions & Clinic is having their Hang 20 Surf Dog Classic this Saturday, from 8:00am – 2:30pm. The weather is going to be just fine and there will be doggies….on surfboards!! Plus, great food, vendors, music and more! This event will benefit Furry Friends Adoption & Clinic, a 501c3 not for profit animal rescue organization located in Jupiter. #DontShopAdopt
I do plan on getting out & about for a little while this weekend. My best friend will be in town and we love to hit up the awesome, local businesses in our area. Follow me on SnapChat (nikolina100), Periscope (nikolina100) & Instagram to see what we’re up to!
Saturday, August 22:Marinelife Day at The Gardens Mall – The free family event will be held on Saturday, August 22, from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the Grand Court of The Gardens Mall and will spotlight Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s (LMC) world-renowned sea turtle and ocean conservation programs.
Happy Friday, friends! It’s the last weekend of summer before our Palm Beach County students head back to class. I have mixed feelings about the school year starting. The pros, the kids stay busy, life has a defined schedule and of course that new school supply smell. The cons, the kids stay busy, life has a defined schedule and of course the lines at office supply stores! Haha! So I put together a list to help you squeeze the last bit of fun out of the summer. Enjoy!
Growing up in Jupiter we always had the Jupiter Movie Theater as a place to go. It was where we first learned to have our Moms drop us off at the far side of the plaza, so we wouldn’t be seen getting out of her car. Mortifying!! Looking back though, of course our Moms were driving us, we were in middle school. Who did we think we were fooling?? Haha!
But I digress. Having a movie theater was totally awesome. However, over the years it slowly went downhill. Showing it’s age and never being updated. Your feet would definitely stick to the floor, every time. The chairs were gross and over all, it just wasn’t a fun theater to go to. Once the theater at Downtown at The Gardens was built, I never went back to the Jupiter Theater.
That has forever been changed! Guys!! We have a Cinépolis Theater, right here in Jupiter now, and It. Is. AWESOME.
My husband and I went this past weekend to see Mission Impossible. The theater was really beautiful inside! I felt like we were walking into a really nice hotel lobby.
Now, arriving early to the movie doesn’t mean you have to wait in an almost empty theater. Pull up a stool at the bar & enjoy a frosty beverage. They even have my favorite, local beer on tap. The Chancellor by TBC! Don’t have time to finish your beer before the show starts? No worries, just bring it in with you!
Cinépolis Jupiter offers two different ways to see a movie.
From their website: “The theater’s “Cinépolis Luxury Cinema” auditoriums offer guests a luxury movie-going experience with fully reclining leather seats and in-theater waiter service and dining with full bar, available at the touch of a button. Guests of the theater’s “Cinépolis” auditoriums can enjoy a premium theater experience with comfortable seating and access to the gourmet menu and full bar in the lobby area.”
We opted for the Luxury Cinema and loved it! Large comfortable chairs that allow you to put your feet up, seat side service and a full menu were features that made our visit very enjoyable.
We enjoyed the chicken fingers & the Chocolate & Carmel Popcorn. They were both very tasty!
We give this theater Two Thumbs Up! Have you been? Did you like it? Tell me what your favorite thing about it is. If you haven’t been, go now!!

Jupiter, Florida really is a wonderful place to live! There is always something to do and even when there’s not big event scheduled, we have our gorgeous beaches to enjoy!
It’s been quite awhile since I’ve been to the Juno Beach Pier. I forgot how amazing the view of our gorgeous Atlantic Ocean is from there! I took a leisurely, evening stroll down the pier with my husband last weekend, and it did not disappoint!
Located just off from the Ocean Rescue Headquarters at 14776 Highway A1A, Juno Beach, Florida 33408. The pier is the perfect spot for anglers, beach goers and spectators. Admission fees are $4.00 for anglers and $1.00 for spectators. If you’re fishing off the pier, they have a a small bait shop located right at the admission gate. Need an ice cream on a hot day? They have that too!
Admittedly, I’m not a very good fisherlady. Honestly I don’t have the patience for it and watching the caught fish flop around out of the water, breaks my heart every time! However, it was quite humorous to walk down the pier and see the fish out smarting the fisherman the whole time! There were HUGE fish below the pier, probably close to 50 anglers all up and down the pier and not one of them were catching anything!
It was awesome to watch the giant bait balls swim in formation, making perfect circles around the larger fish. The perspective from the pier is really cool!
You just can’t help but feel yourself relax looking at the view from the pier! Not only are the views spectacular, the pier also plays an important role with keeping our local marinelife safe and the environment healthy. You can learn more about the Responsible Pier Initiative on the Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s website here.
This is just one of the MANY reasons I love working & living in Jupiter, Florida. If you live in the Jupiter area, be sure and take a some time to enjoy the pier from time to time. It really is quite lovely.
The start of summer is upon us! If you’re a regular reader of this blog you know I’m kind of obsessed with my home town Jupiter, Florida. Living and working in this town is really great!

Today, like most days around here, was a perfect beach day! I took a few minutes between work and picking up the kiddos, and took in some of the ocean air. Nothing helps get your brain working at full capacity like a little sand, sun & surf!
