Summary: Awesome weekend!! Fireworks, Counting Crows, fun with Susan and friends, and two cubbies games coming!
So...I'm gonna go in sort of random order. Cause that's just how I'm feeling right now :)
OK...so first off, there should never be a single store so big that you need a map to get around it! We were all in Meijer last night...er, this morning. And we just wanted to find some posterboard and sharpies. (Cubs game!) So we get a map and look at it while we're walking...and apparantly in a store of that size, a section like school supplies is too small to mention. So we wandered for a bit, but susan found the right place! Anyway, no store should be that large...though I'm torn cause it's cool to be able to buy just about anything in the world 24 hours a day. :)
So now for tonight! I went to go see Counting Crows with Lyci and her boyfriend! Fun times, although it was H O T out in the sun!! Got there around 1:15, got a good veggie dog and staked out a place on the lawn in front of the bandshell...pretty good seats too! Saw a cool band I've never heard of, The Old 97s...sort of punky rock sort of music. They were good! Then They Might be Giants came out and just totally sucked. I don't think anyone in the crowd really wanted to see them...well except for these very odd people a few blankets down from us that seemed to be grooving with it :) But the main event, Counting Crows!! They were truly awesome! The best concert I've seen this year for sure (Lewis Black isn't a concert!) :) Tons of fun!
Then I came back and watched the evanston fireworks from the rocks on the beach...so fun! So beautiful!!! And I could walk home...very cool :)
Yesterday was a ton of fun too!! Even though we got rained on at Frontier Days! We still got a short ride on the Ferris Wheel, and got to go see Dodgeball! Hilarious movie!! If you go, you have to stay till the end of the credits, but then again, once you see that part, you might wish you left early! That milkshake song will eternally bring bad memories to my mind! But super fun to hang out with susan and friends! And very very very cool to get to see Diana again!!!! Yay!!! :)
Now I must go to bed. Two days of Cubbies fun in Milwaukee coming up!! Yay!!! :) And they SWEPT the White Sox!!! Awwww yeah!!! Go cubbies!!!!! :)
