Anyways we had arrived at 6:30 am our time and for some odd reason I got up 3 1/2 hours later and stayed awake til it was bedtime again. I love after a long travel waking up, crawling into bed with my mom in the morning and just chatting about life and what has been going on since we last talked. You see my dad is an early riser, my mom often is awake but just lays in bed (I am very similar to this), so I know that I can always find her awake and ready to catch up.
So the first day that we arrived my husband and I headed to the Cubs vs. White Sox's game. It was packed since it was the last week of Spring Training. They announced that was record breaking attendance that day, they average around 14,000 people. That day they had 215,000 people at the baseball game. It was a gorgeous day and the game got very exciting towards the end. The only disappointment, they weren't selling dippin dots ice cream or even cotton candy. These are the 2 main reasons why I love going to baseball games with my husband but I still survived.
The following day my husband headed out to go golfing with my dad so my mom and I headed to some amazing stores. I scored on this trip. I found a DVF clutch that is normally $400 that I got for $30. Its authentic--its only missing the chain which I don't think I would have used anyways. I love it more as a clutch. I got 5 pairs of shoes that were all on sale as well. The following day we headed to a few thrift stores. I was a little disappointed with the goodwill though, it was really dirty compared to the ones I am use to and I found it to be over priced as well. I did buy a few things still though.
Overall the trip was a success, we escaped snowy weather for sunshine, my husband golfed twice as well as his spring training baseball game, I bought a lot of stuff, we both got to read, swim & escape life even just for a weekend.
Remember how one of my New Years Resolutions was to take back my weekends. I think I am doing pretty good so far.
