We've been extremely busy the past few weeks. So a quick update...
Two weeks ago my family (little sister, mom, dad, big sister, brother-in-law) came to visit during my birthday weekend. It was the first time we've been together since my wedding! It was wonderful to hang out and laugh the entire weekend. Oh, and to give you an update from the last blog (where I asked for prayers on my parents safe commute)... Well, it took them 7 hours to drive a usual 3 hour trip because of the flooding! On the way home, they had to stay in a hotel because east-bound I-80/94 was shut down. My poor parents! They are so easy-going though, they certainly made the most of it!
The following weekend (last weekend) some of my friends from Nashville came for a visit. Marlena, Devin, Kristin, and Ben all drove up from Tennessee to spend the Labor Day weekend with us. It was so fun to have my girlfriends here to be goofy with again and just spend some girly time together. We went to the French Market, downtown Chicago, the Flea Market, IKEA, Sweet Tomatoes, and just hung out at our house. I think everyone had a good time just seeing each other again.
Now we are at this weekend. Last night we had our first GG of the Fall, so it was nice to be back together again with our Friday night friends. Then today Ben and I went on the Chicago Luxury Home Tour. It's like the Parade of Homes, except the homes in this tour range from $1 million to $6.5 million! We toured a $5.4 million house today that was quite useless. Seriously, who needs all those odd-shaped rooms.. ?? Anyone with that many kids usually can't afford that big of a house, right?
Tomorrow is the opening game for da Bears! Go Bears!! Since U of M is not doing well, I'm going full fledge into the Bears this year. Not that I have really ever followed UofM...but I am from Michigan, so everyone assumes that I do...so I just play along.
That's it! Good night!
