4th of july weekend recap

I started my holiday a litte early with a concert at Ravinia to hear Matchbox 20 and Goo Goo Dolls and they were fabulous - played all the old favorites!  We popped some bubbles to celebrate Amanda's birthday and did not let the rain get us down.  Barbara and Steve even got to put use to their umbrella chairs!

Logged some balcony time with my new balcony slipper chair.  I paid a visit to the Restoration Hardware outlet in Kenosha a week or so ago and picked up an awesome chair and cushion set for a song.  First let me say holy smokes do they charge a LOT of money for their stuff.  Do you know anyone that could justify outdoor cushions for over $800? No freakin way!  But ... for $20, YES!  YES!  YES!  And seriously, what do I care that the chair has one small piece that has been cut?  I don't!

Caught a night out with our friend Bernard and his lady, who were in from LA. It's always so good to get together with old friends and just pick up where you last left off.  I am so thankful for the fabulous people in my life!

And ended my weekend with a beautiful Sunday on the beaches at the Indiana Dunes with another one of my dear old friends in town visiting.  So good to see Miss Mary and the Pittmans! The beach was pretty crowded too!  It was a super weekend!  So hard to go back to work after four and a half days full of fun!
