Busy Weekend!

May 28, 2012

Hey everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your holiday weekend! It’s been pretty busy for me! I was up bright and early on Saturday morning and had to say goodbye to my friend Maddie (after a great evening of sushi and my first ever Menchie’s froyo), and head to the airport! I, of course, had a breakfast of champions. Honey greek frozen yogurt with frozen mango on top!

I also had these veggie chips I found at Whole Foods. Can we say "addicting”?!?!?

I flew into Chicago on Saturday afternoon and my LOVELY big brother surprised me by picking me up from the airport! (Personally I just think he was avoiding going to the zoo with some family in town, but I’ll take it!). I unpacked, hung out with my brother and sister-in-law for a bit, hit the grocery store and then went to dinner with my brother, my sister-in-law, and several members of her family who were in town visiting!

No pictures, but I wanted to be SURE to mention that Sonny (my sister-in-law’s brother) was at dinner. Now that he has been mentioned on my blog, he is famous. Congratulations Sonny.

I woke up bright and early Sunday morning and headed to Holland, MI to get brunch with Ashley and Chelsey! I have been talking with Ashley for a while, so it was so great to meet her in person! She was in Michigan for the weekend and when I realized it was less than 3 hours away, I had to visit!

We went to brunch at a restaurant called The Windmill and all ordered veggie omelets!

The food was good, but the company was much better! No photos of us, those are all on their “real” cameras, so I’ll be getting them in a couple days. Didn’t think my iPhone would top photos taken by their cameras… haha.

On my way back I went to a farmers market and grabbed some cherries! Michigan is famous for their cherries, so I had to get a bunch!

After getting back I hit up Whole Foods on my way into the city, had some lunch and then went over to my brother and sister-in-law’s apartment to hang out with Sonny (there you are again, Sonny!) and his wife, Suzanne before they headed back to Springfield. Oh, and my best friend was there too:

    Michigan is so beautiful! I was actually just 20 minutes outside of Holland this past weekend and loved the location and scenery. I can’t believe I didn’t buy any luscious cherries though 😦

    I recently just tried veggie chips and yes, they are addicting! I can’t wait to make my own now…

    I’ve heard so many great things about Greek frozen yogurt! I can’t wait to try! i
    I love everything from a farmer’s market, but for some reason corn always tastes sweeter!

    My favorite farmers’ market purchase is bread! I get my bread from these lovely ladies that have great samples all the time. And they have the coolest type of bread: Ezechiel, flaxseed, etc. All kinds of yummy!
