Mine was too short!
But I sure packed in A TON!
Saturday morning, I woke up and went for a 5 mile run. Then, showered quickly and drove down to the city. I met up with my brother and future SIL. We grabbed a new Potbelly flatbread breakfast sandwich and an Uber down to Soldier Field. (Confused about Uber, join the club, but here is their website).
The beer fest was pretty empty as the venders were just starting to set up.
We found the St. Jude tent and started throwing around a football. Apparently, throwing a football is frowned upon at Soldier Field : )
We ended up in charge of the photo booth and did a quick test run before everyone arrived.
The filed filled up quickly and it turned out to be a beautiful day!
Volunteering was a BLAST! There is great people watching at a beer fest and it’s always special to volunteer for St. Jude.
I spent Saturday night in (well half on the deck drinking prosecco and eating Mediterranean food) and the rest of the night in with more prosecco, dark chocolate, and the Lifetime Movie Network. That might sound pathetic, but I had company, so it was really quite perfect.
I was up early Sunday morning and easily convinced my brother and future SIL to go for a walk. They live in a great location with access to tons of cute city neighborhoods. We walked for at least 90 minutes talking, watching the arrival of spring in the city, and shaking off this legendary winter.
By the time we got back from our walk, my mom was downtown and we spent the rest of the day with her and some friends celebrating mother’s day. It couldn’t be more special!
Wondering why it took me until Wednesday to tell you about my weekend? That is coming in my next post : )
Is it too late to ask…how was your weekend?
