This weekend was a bit of a whirlwind. My BFF since middle school was having her bridal shower in Chicago. Her wedding is one week before my due date so I won’t be able to make it to the actual big day, so I wanted to be sure to be there for this! My sister lives in Chicago and my mom was going to the shower as well, so we crashed at my sister’s place. She lives on the 41st floor- wayyyyy up high. But the view is killer.
Tucky missed me.
I flew in around 8:30AM on Saturday since I didn’t want to leave hubby to fend for himself one-armed for too long. My parents are thinking about moving to Chicago so I went and looked at some places with my mom for a few hours and then we headed to the shower. We made toilet paper dresses- her nieces were the models. See that rose in her hair? I made that. I’ve got skillz. We also made wine charms to take home…and there were cat cake pops 🙂
She got lots of great stuff and it was great to see her, if only for a few hours.
After the shower my mom and I drove back into the city in a torrential downpour and then headed out to dinner with my sister.
That’s my sister’s cat Bella. We experienced all kinds of weather in 24 hours- fog, rain, sun, etc! And just 24 hours after I arrived, I was back at the airport heading home.
I got home around 2:30 Sunday afternoon, took a 2 hour nap and then mowed the lawn.
Typical scene on my desk. Computer…papers everywhere….food waiting to be photographed.
I was sent some Hint Water to try. Have you tried it? They generously sent me both the fizzy and regular kinds. I like the product because it’s calorie-free, there’s no artificial sweeteners and it’s non-GMO. I’m usually not a fizzy water kinda girl, but I tried the blackberry and I actually liked it better than the regular peach that I tried next!
There are so many delicious-sounding flavors…I’m excited to try them all. I’ll keep you posted on which I like best. Thanks again to Hint for the samples!
And just a few pics of the buddies to round things out 🙂
