Too Much Fun

Last Sunday, during my trip to Chicago, in addition to continued hilarity with the family, I had the chance to meet fellow blogger Haley Hughes! If anyone from my family actually read my blogs, I might have to be ever so slightly concerned about their jealousy when I say that having lunch with Haley could very well have been the highlight of the weekend.  Fortunately for me, nobody in my family reads my blogs.

(Some of my classmates from Lourdes do, and here’s a shout out to them… sorry I missed the party Friday night.  I was seriously exhausted by the time I got to town.  Next time, I’ll come out a day early!)

Haley and I chatted up a storm at Rosebud of Naperville (try their house specialty Square Noodles), which is located by Riverwalk Park.  Being on the bank of one of the branches of the DuPage River (ok, it’s the west branch), we were able to watch ducks fail to maintain a stationary position in the swift-moving waters as they looked for whatever ducks look for under water.  Snow actually fell from the sky, which was a great disappointment to me.  Meeting Haley, however, was fabulous!  Next time, we do so hope fellow blogger JD will join us.

After lunch, I arrived back at my brother’s house just in time to witness my nephew dancing with glee as the Packers scored the last touchdown of the game against the Bears.  Meh and whatever.  My brother and sister-in-law were disturbed by his unnatural behavior, however.  I don’t know why.  After all, my brother always has favored the White Sox over the Cubs… which is unnatural for a North Sider.  Yeah, now you know how the rest of us felt when you mocked our Cubbies, Kev.  Paybacks are a bitch, aren’t they?  heh heh heh

    I’m so happy you made to trip to Chicago. I had a ton of fun meeting you for lunch. Next time, though, JD has to be there!
