My Weekend Highlights 5/16/09

Another weekend that has come and gone… where do the weekends go???

Friday… I work till 3:45
had a nail appointment
came home did the laundry.

for dinner Kris and I went to GIGIO’S for dinner… it is this small little family owned Italian
restaurant on Oakton in Des Plains, IL they have everything from pizza, pasta dishes, to meatball
sandwiches.. They used to be for years in the shopping center in Niles by Home Depot, on the corner of Oakton and Waukegan.

After dinner we went to Jewel and did our grocery shopping. then we came home.

Saturday was a productive day…. I had a hair appointment at 10;00am
lunch at Potbelly
followed by dessert at Jamba Juice ( my first time having anything there:))
yes I’m a Jamba Juice virgin.
then we drove to Spring Hill Mall in West Dundee IL, it was time to get my wedding ring inspected and that’s where my jeweler is.

went to Woodfield mall.. able to find my gym shoes.. ( Sketchers Shape Ups) great shoes for people who love to walk.. when you are walking the form of the shoe is suppose to help you with your posture,and your leg and stomach muscles.. When walking you are suppose to feel like you are walking on sand..

Kris was misssing Hawaii so he got a little taste of Hawaii.. He has been looking for a bracelet and he found one at Na Hoku.:)

Got to enjoy the sun before it set. Kris and I went walking. We parked at one of the groves along Harms and walked North just passed Lake Cook Rd. It was a nice walk.

After we went walking we went to dinner followed by going to Target. Finally we came home for the evening.


We watched game one of the Western Conference Finals Hawks vs Redwings at BWW in Skokie.
An old friend joined us.. Even though we didn’t like the outcome of the game, it was nice to see her. Side note It wasn’t a good day in sports for the people of Chicago. the Cubs,Sox’s and Hawks all lost.. AS far as the hawks Redwings series it’s only game one and we will get them on Tuesday..

Tomorrow starts the Eastern Conference finals. The Pittsburgh Penguins vs The Carolina Hurricanes.. this should be a good series.. Divide and conquer in The Nelson household and who is going to come out on top.. that is TBA:):)

Overall it was a productive weekend for me… Next weekend is Memorial Day weekend which means a 3 day weekend:) Till then have a good week:)
