There were a TON of people, as you might imagine. Here's about half the line we waited in since we got there a few minutes before 9. It actually moved quickly thankfully. Oh, and one of the best things about the night is that I got to park across the street for free! In downtown Chicago!!!
They had a "red carpet" photograph experience. Kind of fun.
They had free sun glasses that fold up...and did I mention free booze?
A lot of free booze.
So this event was Sunday. On Friday, the four of us went out to dinner. Neither LL nor I gained any weight that night! Saturday was a softball day for me and then dinner with Smitty for his 40th birthday. LL stayed home with our guests and Marissa while I raced from the softball field in Kankakee at 6:00 to home to shower to the restaurant by 7:30 for the party. If I could have found parking quickly, I would have been on time!!
Smitty and his wife Beth. There were 12 of us and it was a hoot. Smitty provided all the wine at the BYOB restaurant, Caromio. The food was pretty good and we hit a bar afterwards. Once again, I did not gain weight! The party up above though on Sunday cost me a pound and a half.
Tuesday morning though, after softball on Monday night, I reached a new low in weight! Still only about 5 pounds lost or so, but it's progress.
Now for some baby pics!!
Her shirt her says "I melt my daddy's heart". Awwwww!
Mom and dad on Mother's Day! Thanks for smiling pops!
Bee holding Marissa....very carefully. She'll get better. :-)
