Was awesome. It was just what the doctor ordered, and as my husband said, makes me believe we can stay married another year. :) Seriously, we had a lot of fun and we did remarkably very little. Turns out we still get along famously even when there's nothing to do. Here are the few pics to capture the weekend.
The two of us at the game. It was self-shot because I didn't feel asking the woman in front of us who, despite us sitting in the second to last seats in the place, still yelled as if Derek Lee would actually hear her. Nor did I feel like asking the woman who kept throwing peanut shells down the back of my pants when I leaned forward. MMmmm the cheap seats.
This was the view from our seats. We were literally the second to last row from the top. My nose was thisclose to bleeding.
We decided after the Cubs were losing by 20 or so to just walk around. We got down as far as the elderly security guards would let us and just did some hot laps so we could get a good look at the game. Much better down here.
My bro-in-law, Jake's, favorite baseball player Ryne Sandberg singing the seventh inning stretch. We were one day away from Vince Vaughn, I personally felt cheated.
Saturday morning we went on a walk around Kait's place where we found a great antique shop. I loved all the old hats and purses but it turns out my head is about 4 times bigger than anyone in the 1920s, which was most unfortunate.
For Saturday's game we decided to just do some bar hopping in Wrigleyville, we witnessed the big "W" at this bar that had an outside patio. It was lovely.
Our most beautiful hostess.
On our way home I was driving and Zach was fiddling with the McD's cup as usual. Not thinking much of it, I was flattered when he presented me with this little creation. A rose to remember the weekend. He is too much.
And the rose from another angle. Talent, sheer talent.
The kids are home from my parents house and the reunion was awesome. I missed them so much. It was Tariku's first time away from us overnight and he did wonderfully. I was so giddy to see them and they did not disappoint. Love them.
