Weekend Recap

If there is a theme to this weekend, it would surely be, "surprise!".  We schlepped ourselves up north to Chicago, "surprising" one friend and actually really surprising a few others.  It was a fond farewell to two of my very favorite people who are moving on to bigger and better things.  I can say it is now officially the end of the Chicago chapter for the founders of Mo Pie, Please (yes, there used to be 3 other lovely ladies sharing awesomeness with you all).  Some weekend highlights include ::

  • Friday night pizza + True Blood + early to bed
  • Leaving Louisville on schedule with donuts in hand, thank you very much
  • Hanging out with friends like old times - damn, it felt so good.
  • "Surprising" our friend Bart, who had unfortunately guessed his surprise, but it was still a happy moment.
  • Surprising more friends - they were genuinely surprised, hoorah!
  • Enjoying a warm Chicago evening outdoors with grillins, Chicago friends, music and beers.  It really was such a lovely going away party.
  • Hanging out with our little buddy, Liam.  He is 16 months old now - holy smokes!
  • Brunch on the square like old times, followed by a stroll through the Logan Square Farmer's Market - this used to be a weekly activity for the mister and myself.  We totes stocked up on what we could (me, soap; him, pickled mushrooms; plus some amazing strawberries and cherries for the ride home).
  • Smooth sailing drive back to Louisville, just in time to pick up Stevie before the pet resort closed.  

How were your weekends? Wonderful, I hope!  Here's to a great week ahead!

sounds like a really fun weekend. What did you think of True Blood? I feel like the first episode was kinda slow.

What a heavenly weekend! And it's so nice to think about the old days of Mo Pie, Please! Glad to hear everyone's doing such wonderful, exciting things!
