Last Friday we had thunderstorms...and that created a huge mess for Chicagoans! So on saturday it was Javier & Yolanda's Wedding Shower at Maggiano's! I was so excited to go;
1) Because I am so excited for them
2) Because Maggiano's is so YUMMY!
The shower was from 12-4, so I left my place at 11. It was suppose to take 45 mins to get there so I thought that would be enough time...boy was I wrong!
I ran into issues right away! Dempster was closed due to flooding. When I finally got on 294 the speed rate was around 3 MPH! The only good thing about this situation was that next to me was one of my co-workers...actually ex-co-workers (since he quit that Thursday night). It was such a great coincidence because I had not gotten a chance to say good bye! We rolled down our windows and chatted it up!
So what was suppose to be a 45 min drive turned into a THREE HOUR drive! I felt so bad arriving late, but here is what made me feel better; Javier got there at 1pm!
It was so nice to see them happy! I kept thinking of how far we have come along...remember "the good ol'days"? Yea those. Anyways, the one thing I couldn't get use to was all the ahhhh-ing about toasters and blenders and all the other appliances. I know I get excited about housewares, but it was just weird. Anyways, one thing I did get very excited about was the waffle maker...mmm mmm mmm!
After the party I went to get a manicure to make it up to myself. I love treating myself, don't I?
Here is a pic of them with my other favorite gift...a molcajete!
