What have we been up to for the past few days? A lot/not much.
I organized our garage. Which is not at all exciting, but our new apartment got us half of a garage for storage, and we’re thrilled. (THE WAGON CAN LIVE IN THE GARAGE!)
We became Costco members thanks to an amazing LivingSocial deal – and took our first trip as members. With our membership, I got a $20 gift card which I more than spent on glorious things; a 2 lb salami, rosemary olive oil bread, a 24 bottle Blue Moon Seasonal Sampler pack that includes a Cinnamon Horchata ale, large quantities of toddler snacks and mac and cheese, and 60 granola bars. I’m in love. We’re going back on Tuesday. ;)
I attended a baby shower for a dear friend at Mon Ami Gabi in Oakbrook, which took a lot of traveling via the Blue Line, but turned out to be a wonderful time. All baby showers should include a 3 course meal, champagne punch, and coffee and desserts. While I was feasting, my husband and son went to Saturday Soccer and then visited Lincoln Square Applefest, where they enjoyed fresh apple doughnuts. My husband also went to the kick-off event of the Museum of Contemporary Art’s “David Bowie Is” exhibit, and we’re now super excited to take in the exhibit in December.
Today is Monday, and we’re heading off to a park shortly to meet up with some other homeschooling families in the Chicagoland area. It’ll be my first Meetup, and I’m quite excited to make some new friends – and check out a park we’ve never been to.
