Sometimes I'll be watching Hoarders on A&E, and then there's an Intervention episode on after that I get sucked into watching! Does that happen to you?
Where does the time go? Since last time, I've driven to Indiana twice, gotten a cold and even stayed home from work (that never happens), and had a birthday! My friend Amy made me an awesome funfetti cake, and my friend Sharyn from work made me these totally cute raspberry pie cookies. Aren't they just like itty bitty pies?
I also got to sit on the front row of a Sox game, and I felt like I was playing in the game it was so close! Now I'm not the biggest sports fan, but it was still so cool to be that close, and I even caught a ball! Well, one of the players just tossed it to me gently. But I still got to keep it!
Here's a sad picture for the day. A poor little butterfly was stuck in a puddle of gas :( I just stared at it while I pumped.
We ate at my favorite restaurant, Cracker Barrel, with B's grandma and great-grandma. I got pancakes with the real maple syrup, and they were sooooo good. Probably because they are grilled in lots of butter, and have crispy buttery edges.
Brunch last Sunday was at Ann Sather's. They give you 2 huge cinnamon rolls as a SIDE with your brunch entree. And then you still get another one! So I got a side of fruit to balance it out. My artichoke, aspargus, mushroom and tomato omelette was pretty good, too.
B got me a Kindle for my birthday, and it is the best invention ever. I never have to wait for books to be available from the library any more! And I can hold it while standing on the train with one hand, and even "turn" the page!
I went to The Grind coffeehouse Saturday before going to Apple Fest in Lincoln Square to have some coffee and read a little. I ended up also getting an open-faced croissant with tomato and cheddar, which is something I should just start making at home. Yumm. That lighter was on the table when I sat down, so don't worry I'm not trying to catch stuff on fire.
The square was filled with strollers, kids, music, and people this weekend, but it's always so pretty! I'm glad I live so close to such a cute neighborhood.
