Spring Break 09 part 1

I started my Spring Break with a bang. I went to Houston for 4 days and had an absolute blast. It was a busy busy weekend and I can't believe it all went by so quickly. Friday night I went to Chuys with my friends, Ashley and May to have some yummy Mexican food (I know its not on the diet but I gave myself the weekend off).
After Chuys, we hit Midtown for some dancing and fun times! My other friends, Sheryl and Veronica met up with us. I love going out with all my girls. We have such a great time and my feet always hurt at the end of the night!

Saturday, I went to a baby shower for one of the teachers I used to work with. I got to visit and catch up with several of my old coworkers. It was great to see everyone!
Then, it was off to Frontier Fiesta to see Delta Zeta and Delta Upsilon put on their variety show. I was really impressed and the girls did a great job. We spent the rest of the evening hanging out at the different BBQ tents and chit chatting with lots of people I went to college with. We closed the night down back in Midtown for more dancing!

On Sunday, I went to brunch with several friends. It was soooo good! After, Ashley and I went to go see Les Miserables. It was one of the best musicals that I have seen. Thanks Ashley for inviting me to go with you. I then spent the evening out in Clear Lake visiting with my old neighbor, Kelly. I love her like a second mom and she has so much good advice!

Monday was spent packing and going to lunch with Ashley at Saltgrass. They have fabulous steaks and I miss all the yummy food Texas has.

It was so sad to have to come back home after such a short visit. And the weather in Chicago is not so nice- cold and rainy!

I spent the first full day home of my break out shopping with my mom, working out, and making yummy banana cupcakes. I bought a new laptop case for my new Macbook, went to the gym twice, and caught up on laundry. 5 more days of break left!
My lovely new laptop case/bag!

The second part of my Spring Break is going to be a lot less eventful but still restful!
