Late Weekend Update

Well at least I am posting right? LOL! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was definitely busy to say the least.

On Saturday I had two parties. One party was a child's birthday party. Tyler Selah my friend Marilyn's daughter turned three! She was too cute with her hula swimsuit!

It had a little grass skirt attached! So cute! I took many photos because I plan to make her a small scrapbook for her third birthday. I will post photos as I complete pages. The party was held at an indoor waterpark. It was really nice and all the kids and adults had a great time.

I then left her party went home and changed and had my next party. The picture below is of me, my friend Sue and Rebecca. Sue is getting married this month and so I went to her bachelorette party at Cafe Iberico.

This restaurant is a tapas bar and has great food! I never got a chance to take pictures of any of the food because we were too busy eating! They have some wonderful dishes and if you are ever in downtown Chicago I highly recommend going to this restaurant one evening. It's always crowded but its worth the wait.

We saw at least two other bachelorette parties while we were there. I had no idea this was such a popular place to go for a bachelorette party.

Sue had a wonderful dessert I couldn't help but laugh at! I am sure you will too!
It's ice cream and a glazed banana shaped like....well I guess you can figure it out! They even got more gross and spread whipped cream over her nose and face. I didn't get a picture of that because I was laughing too hard!

A very fun time! I didn't stay past dinner though. I had a flight to catch in the morning and staying out late wasn't something I could do. They went on to a bar then to another bar to watch the bands. I am sure they had a wonderful time!

On Sunday I had to fly to Corpus Christi, Texas. When I arrived in Dallas they needed six people to take another flight. They offered a hotel stay and a $250 voucher. Well it wasn't enough so no one offered to give up their seat. So what they did was take the last six passengers to purchase tickets which included me! This has never happened to me! I was too shocked and slightly miffed! But I regrouped and thought about the positive side which was a $250 voucher for travel. But as time progressed they were able to get me on the flight and I made it to Corpus Christi.

So that was my weekend. I do have some other updates for you regarding my crocheting so be on the look out for another posting soon!
