Weekend Recap!

Ughhhh Monday already? Not fair. One more day would have been nice.

Today I'm linking up with Dana at five30three and Leeann at Join The Gossip to recap my weekend.

Friday started out as usual: gym, dance party, dinner, couch. Glorious.

Saturday was The Air & Water Show! We spent the entire day on our friends' roof, soaking up the sun and ooing and ahhing at the acrobatic planes over the skyline and lake.

That evening we got a little crazy: we ordered a pizza and watched Beethoven on Netflix. I know. Wild. You're jealous aren't you? 

Yesterday was full of more relaxation with the screens open and the breeze blowing through the apartment. Teddy got a little crazed when he heard the planes overhead. I love our Sunday routines as of late: sleep in, breakfast, Mass, grocery store, baseball, dinner, lounge, football pre-season, pass out. I also had a Google+ Hangout date with my adorable niece, which was the cherry on top of a fantastic weekend. She showed us her dance moves and made me proud. (Single flowing tear down my cheek!)

We made a new dish last night, too! It's been a while since I've sang the praises for Gina's Skinny Recipes, so I had to do it today: her Chicken Divan is divine!!! I can't believe it's Weight Watchers-friendly! It's creamy, cheesy...and healthy? What?!?!

What about all of you? How did you spend your weekend?

That's awesome that you got to see the air show, what a gorgeous view you guys had! I'm glad you had a relaxing Sunday too (aren't they the best?) and I'll have to check out those recipes!

Such great photos from the air and water show. We were supposed to head out of town on Thursday, but didn't wind up leaving til Friday because of my husband's never-ending workload. So I got to hear the planes practicing and it literally felt like they were right outside my window. It is so scary!! Maybe I'm just a big scaredy-cat now that I have a baby...who, by the way, was napping during the practice runs!

Let's get together again soon with all our Chicago blog friends!

What a great weekend! Friends, food, AND an air show? Score!

Somehow I am always in my hometown on the weekends and my mom makes us to go mass at 8am. That means I have to wake up and hour earlier then when I go to work!! I wish we went to the later service lol!

Thanks for linking up with us!
