Weekend Recap

Hello again!  How are you?  How were your weekends? Excellent, I hope!  Our weekend was one of the best weekends and I'm feeling so very warm and fuzzy as a result.  Some highlights include ::

  • Chicago visitors!!!  Some of our bestest friends came in for a weekend visit and it was glorious.  The time flew by unfortunately (as it always does) but we made the most of it.
  • Pizza + wine/beer + fire.  Oh yes.  So.  Cozy.
  • Morning coffee + chats.  I can't get enough!
  • Baby shower - only two more months to go until we meet the newest addition to our extended family.  
  • Champagne + euchre = perfection (except for losing to the boys)
  • MY PARENTS!!  They arrived safely and right in time for dinner!  
  • Tofurkey roast/pot roast dinner.  It was so tasty and so awesome to have the dinner table completely full with so many of my all-time favorite people.  
  • Taboo night - Taboo is super fun with teams of 3, let me tell you.  Us girls totally ruled that one.
  • Apple pancake brunch - a great way to send off the friends.  
  • Bears victory!
  • Delicious manicotti followed by some awesome r n' r.  I love weekends.

It's good to be back, it's good to be with family and it's good to be excited about Thanksgiving!  Here's to a wonderful week ahead!

Greetings from Texas! November 23, 2011 at 11:28 AM  

Just discovered your blog. Love it as I recently moved from Chicago! Da Bears! Check out mine if you get a chance!

Wow, you're weekend sounds amazing! Full of activities, and fun ones at that. It vaguely reminds me of my home. We're all very family oriented and have game nights at least once a month. With the holidays approaching, I wanted to mix it up so I purchased a Spinning Wheel to do some trivia instead of our usual Monopoly or Scrabble. I think they'll be ecstatic! If your family likes to play different games for prizes, I think they'd love it to and it would be a nice alternative! Happy Holidays to you all!
