Saturday was extremely productive. I went to a Bridal Expo downtown with my sister (she's getting married in 6 months). We checked out most of the booths (there were a TON!), plus I was sure to stop at some of the cake booths for tastings :D Then later in the afternoon I met up with friends in a running club for a 2-mile run through downtown (I may tell more of this story in another post). Afterwards we had a great dinner at Old Chicago. Hanging out with friends really lifts my spirits. I feel so happy, sometimes I find myself looking around for DB in the midst of my friends - it really feels like he's here with me. It's a nice little moment of ignorant happiness.
Today was quite relaxing, with Church in the morning and lunch with the family. My Uncle across town bought a new iPOD and called me for help, so after lunch I went over there to try to be helpful. I'm pretty sure that just because I'm young, but it was still nice to feel like I could help out.
One of the weekend highlights was the abundance of martinis! My Dad is really into fancy drinks; I think of it like experimenting with cooking in the kitchen. The fun is in looking up recipes and trying to come up with tasty combinations. Our favorites so far: the Lemon Drop Martini, the Midori Martini and Cinnamon Amaretto Martini (well that last one isn't a martini but I had to somehow fit it in with the others). I feel like I'm living at a bar, lol.

May there be many more merry martinis in my future!
