I am pretty much done with family for the summer. I only have a bridal shower for my niece on Saturday. Three weekends of family is more than enough:) The Cubs/Cardinal game last Saturday was fun and the kids and my brother got to go on their first subway ride to Wrigley. Sunday we spent a beautiful day on a friends rooftop deck watching the air show. It is amazing how quickly summer is going by.
Well things are not real exciting around here so this is a short post. I hope everyone is enjoying summer and avoiding earthquakes and pending hurricanes.

My parents were in town this past weekend. We had a good time but having someone around all weekend is a lot of work. Friday they went shopping on Michigan Ave. while I finished up my work week. Friday night we went to Via Carducci in Bucktown because I had a Groupon that was expiring on Saturday. It was a nice restaurant. It was crowded so I think everyone was there trying to use up their Groupon's as well because I don't typically think summer and Italian food. Saturday Mom and I spent the day shopping in Oak Brook and my Dad and husband golfed. Saturday we ate at home and DH made biscuits and gravy for Sunday breakfast which were delicious.
The month of August is turning out to be all about family. Next weekend my brother and his family are coming to town and the following weekend is my nieces bridal shower. I will be ready for Labor Day and no family:) Then the following weekend starts ten days in Naples for EGA and vacation. I cannot wait for that week.
Hope you have a wonderful week with lots of stitching. Thanks for reading my blog.

Our house has been a revolving door of friends and dinner parties. Last night I finally had to say enough and no one can come over. Hopefully, that pattern can hold for tonight as well. My husband is dealing with some eye issues and he will be off work this afternoon but that will not necessarily slow him down from cooking and inviting people over.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful week.
