Sunday Post: Trip to Chicago

Weekly meme to talk about books and a little my personal life last week


Kimberly hosts the Sunday Post each week. I like to take part because it gives me an opportunity to look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also love to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading.

Personal life

I spent a lot of last week getting ready to go to Chicago for our niece’s wedding. I don’t wear dresses much anymore so I had to find the dress I had in mind to wear, make sure it didn’t need cleaning, that it still fit and find all the stuff to wear with it and make sure they fit! Then we had to get up at 5:00 a.m. on Friday to drive to Chicago. Now that we’re back home I’m ready for some rest!

Chicago wedding

We just got back from the Chicago wedding for one of our nieces. The wedding was beautiful and lots of fun. It was held outside at a nature preserve and was a little breezy which helped since it was also humid! Afterward the reception was held at an Irish bar. It was a large Irish bar and the entire bar was rented for the reception for five hours! Very nice to talk to people, sample appetizer foods, drink some Guinness, watch people dancing upstairs.

All the activities related to the wedding occurred near the Chicago River so we stayed at a hotel near the river. The pictures above show the river.

Blog life

I didn’t get as much done on my blog as I’d planned. I was distracted trying to remember what I needed to do for our trip as well as having a number of appointments to take care of.
