GUITAR HERO!

video

Ben brought Guitar Hero to my parents this weekend for Thanksgiving so we could play it on my dad's projector. We played and played and played. My mom really got into it... (see the video above). And, believe it or not, my Grandmother was good!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Ben is in San Diego for a conference, and I thought the week would be hard to get through. But, thanks to my girlfriends, this week has flown and it's already Friday!! I've kept myself busy with hosting a jewelry party on Tuesday night and hanging with some girlfriends last night. Today I went with my friend Colleen and her daughter, Lauren, to check out some specialty markets. We also spent some time at The Guitar Center and had lunch at a local restaurant, The Seven Dwarfs.

Tomorrow I'm hoping to get some cleaning and laundry done before heading out for some more girly time with my friends Jen and Laura. We're going to help Laura pick out some fun decorations for her home.

Tuesday, after the jewelry party, most of the girls stuck around and hung out. Four of the other girls' husbands were also out of town, so we were all in relaxed moods and had fun. A few of us ended up playing Guitar Hero III! Ben's not the only one who can have Xbox parties! :)

Last weekend we were in Oklahoma for Mike and Mikel's wedding. It was a fun road trip and we got to see some friends we haven't seen in a long time.

Next week we'll be in Michigan for Thanksgiving and we'll get to see Angie and Glenn! (For those who don't know, that's my older sister and her husband) I can't believe the holidays are already here... but I'm looking forward to it!

A Few Updates...in Bulleted Form

*I took the day off work today. yay!

*Yesterday, three girlfriends and I went to the So You Think You Can Dance concert at the United Center (where the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks play).

*Also yesterday, at work our unit (9 of us) went to a women's self defense class during the entire afternoon. It was nice because it was a half day of work and the class was actually very informative and fun! I would suggest you sign up for taking one sometime. There are some good tips you need to learn.

*Ben's parents were in town for the weekend. We were supposed to go golfing, but the course was closed in the morning due to frost.

*Ben's birthday was October 25th and we celebrated with our annual BYOP party. (See pics from previous post)

*We are going to Mike Forehand's wedding this weekend in Oklahoma, where we'll get to see Chris and Vicki and Genna!!
