It's raining here again in Chicago, and it's looking like that's going to be the theme of the week! Rain tomorrow, sunny for a few days, then rain this weekend. FUN. Good thing my dad just found three umbrellas in the back of one of our cars.
I definitely had a good weekend! Saturday was spent wedding dress shopping with one of my friends from high school. We have different tastes in what we think is pretty, so I tried to judge what she liked and based my comments on that. I didn't want to insult her FAVORITE dress, but if I thought it didn't look great, I found a nice way to say it. Her mom and another one of our friends from high school came long too, so she could get a bunch of different opinions. I think this is her favorite so far:
That's the model from David's Bridal, not my friend! I'm not sure how I feel about the red on a wedding dress...it's not something I would do, but more power to you if that's what you want. The dress also comes in white-on-white, but of course they don't have a sample or pictures of it, so you'd have to order it to see if you liked it. That seems a bit troublesome for your wedding dress! There's another dress in the running, but I can't find a picture of it, and she's going to look at other stores as well. They haven't set a wedding date yet, so no pressure yet. After dress shopping, we headed back to her house and played Guitar Hero/Rock Band (which I am MISERABLE at) and then watched The Ten Commandments. Such. A. Long. Movie. Oh my goodness.
Sunday was Easter! We thought we would be crazy busy at work, but that wasn't the case! Lots of big parties, but with eight servers working, it really wasn't that busy. And people didn't tip well! It's Easter people, be nice! Oh well. We colored Easter eggs later that evening when my sister and her roommates came over. Since I like to relate everything to my love for Maryland (note my graduation cap in the header of the site), I had to make a Maryland egg! Here's how it turned out:
We followed egg decorating with Easter dinner, complete with ham, CHEESEY POTATOES!!, green beans, orange jello, and rolls. Oh, and of course pie! French Silk, naturally. Guess what I'm having for dessert the rest of the week??
So, fun weekend overall! I started this week off with an easy five mile run, luckily before the rain hit! It was a bit chilly and I knew the rain was coming, so I kept bargaining/pleading in my head. "Okay, PLEASE don't rain until the last two miles." "No no, last mile." "Okay, I could handle the last few minutes." Something must have worked because it only misted for about a minute, but started raining on my way to work! Good timing. The run was nothing too exciting, just a quick five.

Cubbies win!!! Home opener today, but I'm glad I wasn't there because baseball games in cold and rain are the epitome of misery. Not that I would know from experience or anything...
