I'm Here!!

Yesterday I arrived safety on the Megabus in Chicago and made my way to my sister's apartment. As soon as I got there, she and her hubs already had a game set up for us to play. Did I tell you they are board game obsessed?? Well after that, we headed over to Dave and Buster's for dinner and games. Do you ladies have Dave and Buster's near you?? I would describe it as a Chuckie Cheese for adults :) Here we are at dinner...


We always wear the same thing...and we never plan it...I just show up and we're twins!


I ordered fish...to try to be good...but then I substituted the green beans (yuck!) for onion straws (yum!).

Then we headed off to play some games. Here are some action shots I captured along the way:






So we spent $30 to play all of the games...and guess how many tickets we got??



Yeah...like over 1000! We were totally pumped! After taking ample amount of time to pick and choose what we would spend our tickets on....here is what we picked out!



3 nerds ropes, 2 air head extremes, skittles sour candy spray, 9 gummy hotdogs, AND a Dora Wallet! Have I expressed yet my love of Dora the Explorer?? Well, I really just love Swiper...but that's beside the point. Moving on...




Yep...$30 dollars well spent.

Today, Dave and I went for a run at the beach! It was pretty fun :) Then my mother, grandmother, three aunts, and I arrived in Wisconsin. We spent the afternoon roaming around the resort, taking in all of the sites so we could plan our mode of attack for the days to come. After a light dinner in the room, my Godmother and I headed off to the fitness room to get in a workout whilst the remaining gamblers headed off to the casino. They say they shouldn't be very long (whatever the heck that means) and that they were only going to spend $100. Um, that's about all I brought for the whole trip! I am so out of my league here...


Aunt Donna, Aunt Chrissie, Grandma, Mama, and Me! Not pictured...my beautiful Aunt Tami who's taking the pic...and who I stole it from :)


Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I'm off to catch up on blogs, shower up, and prepare for my spa day tomorrow!

XOXO

Love Dave & busters! I had one close by when I lived near Nashville but not sure about here in Columbus, GA. That looked like a fun time though! Can't wait to hear about your spa day:)
