Weekend Recap

Another busy weekend in the books, people. 

I ended up having to work on Friday (to make up for a sick day I took on Wednesday) which meant I was really close to Sammy's grandmother's house because my office is only a few minutes from her, so Sammy picked me up from work and we had dinner with her and some relatives that ended up stopping by. It's never a dull meal when we're by Nana Tina so I was thrilled to have some last minute plans to go spend some time with her. 

*this is where I would insert the crappy photo I took via snapchat if my snapchat app would stop being a shit and just work properly but it didn't save so I have nothing. Thanks snapchat, thanks*

On Saturday, I spent the day running errands and setting up with my momma and grandma for the 50th birthday party we were throwing for my uncle. It turned out to be such a nice evening. He had so many family members and friends (even his high school friends came) show up to celebrate him which is something I think he really needed. My other uncle cooked almost the entire meal and we had jambalaya, pulled pork, chicken legs over a corn and tomato succotash, linguine with clams, and my cousin made an orzo salad and a panzanella salad. I drank alcoholic rootbeer and had pasta so my night was freakin' set. 

Plus I die over these two. 
This is my cousin's youngest and she makes my entire life. She's the fiercest. She was teaching him a coin trick here while I obsessively snapped 843 pictures to document this moment. 

On Sunday, I participated in the MG walk with my family in Naperville. The MG walk is to raise awareness for Myasthenia Gravis which is an autoimmune disease "which is characterized by varying degrees of weakness of the skeletal (voluntary) muscles of the body". My grandmother suffered from this disease, as well as my aunt who currently has a slightly less severe variation of it. 

It was a really nice morning and awesome to get to spend time with some of my dad's family we don't see often enough. I got to talk my cousin's ear off walk with my cousin the whole time and got to see her precious baby boy again. 

After the walk, I went home and got ready for the Cubs game I was going to with Sammy and a few of our friends. We had such an awesome time watching them bring in another win which was double exciting since they recently made it to the post season. We've been waiting a long, long time for this kind of action so I hope we can keep it going. Keeping my fingers crossed for the game tomorrow night! 

For those that don't know (and why would you since only my mother reads this) Sammy is a Sox fan so we're naturally destined to fight against one another in all aspects of life ;) but he put his dislike for the Cubs aside and I think he really enjoyed the game. At some point, it's all about being a Chicago fan. Except for me because I don't take the high road very often and will not root for the White Sox ever ;)

He was super into his soft serve in the little hat and I was very into my nachos and beer. There is something so magical about Wrigley Field that I can never quite put into words but I always feel like I'm home when I'm there. It is seriously one of the happiest places on earth, for me at least. 

Luckily I have my Mondays off so even though we got home late I was able to sleep in a bit and get a bunch of stuff done during the day while all those other suckers had to go to work ;)

Hope everyone's weekends were just as fun!
