Weekend Recap


This weekend was good, but not as good as it was supposed to be.  I spent a serious amount of time by the pool, drinking beers and eating food - which in itself, is pretty freaking awesome.  We hung out with family and friends and laughed a lot.  Some highlights include ::


  • Lebowski Fest - we made it out to see my sister-in-law's boyfriend's band play (what a mouthful) while we gawked at festival goers in their bathrobes and such.  I had no idea this festival existed but I have to say it was all really great - especially that stamp we got on our arms with a picture of the dude that simply said, "abide".
  • Poolside all day Saturday - my in-law's pool totally rules.  It's sure been nice to spend my time in there these past 5 days. 
  • Dinner with awesome people
  • Poolside all day Sunday
  • Hang out session with pooches + m-i-l
  • Breaking Bad season premiere!

All in all it was a good weekend.  But did you notice something big was left out of it? I jinxed the house by writing the Friday post, I swear.  Something really annoying happened when the loan was with the auditors in the final stage - literally hours before we were set to close.  Imagine my dismay - the tears, my hopes crushed.  I have no idea when we'll move in and it kills me.  So for now I'm just trying to hold my head up high and enjoy as much of that pool as I can (I think I'm succeeding in that).  Wish us luck :(

How were your weekends? Any of you Chicagoans go to Pitchfork?  Hope everyone is doing well!

I hope that everything works out with the house! All in all that sounds like an awesome weekend though :)

It sounds like you had a good weekend, but it sucks that you couldn't move in yet! Hopefully it'll come together in the next few days. It probably doesn't help that banks and such are closed on weekends. Good luck!

A weekend by the pool sounds amazing! No complaints there! I would have loved to see a Lebowskiefest! We constantly quote that movie in my family!

Hooray for pool and relaxing time though! Also, Lebowski Fest sounds amazing and hilarious.

oh man...i am so sorry that you are having to go through all of this craziness. just breath and take it one day at a time...grown-up stuff, liking buying a home, is just so darn complicated {not that i know from experience, but one day i will grow up and buy a home and understand!} everything happens for a reason - cliche, but true :) all will work out for you guys... just think positive :) xoxoxo brynn

Brandi {not your average ordinary} July 19, 2011 at 7:09 AM  

Oh darling, I'm so sorry to hear about the house situation. Stay positive. Hopefully, everything will work out soon and you'll be back to making plans to get into that house.
