The days are speeding by! I can't believe its already JUNE! Things have been so busy, but all of it has been wonderful!
Last Tuesday I met with my musicians for the wedding. It works out great because they are my friends so we just had a nice happy hour over Chicken Artichoke Quesadillas! I am fortunate to work at a job with orchestra teachers and choir directors. I get a viola player and a singer for my wedding!
On Wednesday, Tim, my mom and I went over to our venue site. It's on a farm that is located on a park district. The three of us were giddy with anticipation for the big wedding day. I was envisioning where i would put all the decorations and what the big day would look like! I can't wait!
Thursday we went to Nye's Polonaise Bar for dinner and photo booth photo sessions with my cousins and family. My big bellied cousin Erin and her boyfriend Carsten met up with us to say goodbye, as she was heading to Germany the next day. And just months away from having her baby girl! The next time we see her she will be a MOM! woah!
Friday, my home girl Shannon and her boyfriend Nate came in from Michigan for the weekend. We made a party of it and invited over a couple of our close friends. Then it turned into a slumber party! It was wonderful to see her again! I miss her so much!
Saturday, Tim and I went to Sex and The City 2. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was just different this time around. I liked the first movie, but this one was pretty cheesy at times. Overall though it was fun to see the girls back in action.
Saturday night we had 2 BBQs. A birthday party for our oldest cousin Chris. He is 40 and Fabulous! And a BBQ for one of Tim's friends who just finished her Masters.
Sunday night we went to see The Dollhouse at the Guthrie Theatre. Courtesy of Kelly and her cool job. It was a good play, kept my attention and very interesting premise.
Tim, Kelly, Kyle and I then went over to Kindee for Thai Happy Hour. The restaurant kindly stayed open for us and we ate yummy apps and played a card game. We then proceeded to shut the place down! Kelly said, You know you are getting old when instead of shutting bars down at 2am you are shutting Thai restaurants down!
Monday was my leisure day. With Tim out with friends, I decided to enjoy some outdoor hammock weather. I piled magazines and books and Nintendo DS into the hammock and had a most lovely time. How can you go wrong?
I hope you all had a great Memorial Weekend!
