Warm and Wonderful Weekend!

Happy Monday! Finally, a weekend of warm weather to brag about!

Friday night Brett and I spent some time at the gym. I am running in the Cosley Zoo Run for the Animals 5K on June 6, and Brett is "training" me, so yes, we spent Friday night at the gym. We are also thinking of a longer race in early fall, but those details have not been made public yet. HAHAHA!!! Anyway, Brett woke up early on Saturday to golf with his friend Taco. They golfed at Pheasant Run and had lunch at "their" place, The Brick House Tavern & Tap in Downers Grove. If you go to the web site, you will see why it is "their" place.

Natalie came over, and after a quick stop at Starbuck's, we headed to the French Market in Wheaton. We had a great time looking at all the local jewelers, fruits and veggies, flowers etc. We were both able to find something very unique for Mother's Day (my mamma is a reader so you will have to wait to hear what I bought) so it was a successful trip. I spent the rest of the day at Home Depot and Lowe's buying flowers and then planting. The yard is starting to look very nice and inviting for all those summer days of relaxing on the patio. Brett and I went to church on Saturday night and got a little laugh that there was no wine due to the swine flu.
Sunday morning we did a little yard work and then headed to Wrigley for our first Cubs game of the season. What a blast we had! We stopped at The Red Ivy for a Bloody Mary before the game - who knew they had a Sunday special and they were only $4!!! We made it into the park for the pre game ceremony to retire Fergie Jenkins' and Greg Maddux's numbers. Brett loved it! Had a few Old Styles and a hot dog and ended up with a Cubs Win!!! Cubs Win!!! Woo Hoo!!!

After leaving the park, we decided it was too early to go home so we went back to the Red Ivy for a few more $4 Bloody Marys. While there, we received free entertainment from the gentleman who had had a little too much to drink and made his own solo dance party in the middle of the bar....

We decided at about 7:30 that it was time to be responsible and go home.

What a fantastic weekend! If only I could figure out a way to make them last a little longer!
