Over The Weekend

This weekend started on Friday, with breakfast out with that guy that I like so much.  We sat at the outside bar of a little cafe and shared an amazing fried green tomato topped with pesto...I'd never had one before and loved it.

What I didn't love...his lengua omelet.  Lengua is some animals tongue and while he loved it, the whole thought of it made me gag.  

No thank you.

The high school team had a tournament this weekend, so we spent a lot of time sitting in bleachers.

My baby is only 13 but looks older and plays older.  Not so fun on the first part but super fun on the second.


In between basketball games we played no fewer than a dozen games of gin rummy, which is the current game of choice.  Lady luck left me for the day; however, but that's ok.  She'll be back.


After church on Sunday (in which our Pastor talked about not getting hung up on what people wear to church, which THRILLED my older son) we stopped at our favorite Italian deli for chicago beef sandwiches.

Messy, messy, messy...but worth every drippy bite.

What?  More basketball?  Really?

So fun watching a younger brother, who thought until this weekend that he wouldn't be a good ball player unless he played exactly like his older brother, come into his own.  And guess what?  It's ok (more than ok, actually) to play your own way.

Coaches were happy.  He was happy.


After the last game we drove 30 minutes for a real Chicago pizza...I guess it was a Chicago kind of day.  Picked it up to go and smelled it the whole way home, at which time I put my jammies on and sat on the couch while watching the 3 hour Bachelorette finale.

Lots of complainy males while it was on but not a one left the room...they were on pins and needles waiting to see who would be chosen, too.

Ok, so maybe not...but the pizza mellowed them out a bit.


How was your weekend?


  1. I guess you didn't get enough Chicago food while you were here! You will just have to come back here yet again.

    Mike took a long weekend so he and a buddy could go see the Dark Knight trilogy ending with the midnight premier. Other than that, it was a pretty quiet weekend. Weather permitting, we'll go to Ravinia Festival a couple of evenings this week for a picnic dinner and Chicago Symphony Orchestra concert. I'll need the nice music break since I'll be spending my days this week unpacking boxes in my new classroom. There's not too much time left before the teachers report back!

  2. How did I miss that sermon...gotta listen to that one online!
