Who had a wonderful weekend? Mine was pretty good. Friday I met up with a co-worker for a drink and tapas at La Tasca in Arlington Heights. Saturday morning I went to the Farmer's Market and then spent most of the day wrapped up in "Fifty Shades of Grey." I became so wrapped up in the characters and their cute sarcastic emails they send back and forth to each other. I don't think I could have walked away from the first book if I actually had plans that afternoon! Saturday I drove into the city. Thankfully it was on the out skirts of Chicago and I found street parking with ease. I went to a friend's grill out bday bash. We played battle shots, ate too much potato salad and laughed around a small fire pit! Have you seen battle shots on Pinterest yet? We all remember the childhood game Battle Ships. Well this is the new grown-up game with shot glasses! Here is an image so you can get an idea of how the game is played:
I didn't get a photo of the game. Here is an image that closely matches Rena and Ben's talent at making the boats:
Sunday I worked at Fieldwork and then did laundry. I also started reading book two of Fifty Shades!
