It’s taken me almost to this weekend to write about last weekend, but oh well. Last weekend was quite a treat. My friend Liz came into town and stayed with us. She actually came into town for a friend’s wedding, but we hogged her time as best as we could. We got to try out Dan’s hot tub and we did a bit of shopping too. Just a bit. Liz lives in downtown Chicago, so you think she would get all the shopping she could handle. But there’s sometimes when Gucci just isn’t going to have what Target has, you know? Plus, there are no “malls” near by. She was dying to go to a normal mall…hehe. So we went on a short (I’ve gone on longer ones, right JaNae) 4 hour shopping trip on Saturday….then another hour or so on Sunday…. it was good. Plus, with the combination of a previsit kitty bath, super vacuuming the house, and her meds, Liz didn’t do too bad at all staying with us considering that she is allergic to cats. See mom, it’s not that bad! hehe.
We also saw some movies. Got a couple of the big ones out of the way. Xmen and Da vinci.
Good flicks. I have to say I liked X-men better, partly becuase I didn’t know exactly what was going to happen throughout the entire movie, like i did with Da Vinci. When it’s a suspenseful story like that, it’s hard to be in suspense the second time through, even if it is on the big screen. I thought they did a good job (mostly) of sticking to the story though. [I’m thinking of doing a review sometime soon].
All in all it was a nice, relaxing weekend.
