We had a house full of boys this weekend. It was a lot of fun. I'm ready for bed now, at 5:20 p.m., but it was fun.
Mark took all three of them downtown on the train yesterday. The plan was to go to the Sears Tower, but it was a fairly clear day, so the line was endless. Once the boys got restless, Mark changed his plans and took them to Navy Pier. They all had a great time. My nephews, who live in a more rural area, thought the taxi ride was the best part of the entire day.
While they were in Chicago, I met my friend Christina for lunch at Benihana to celebrate her birthday. Afterwards we went shopping at the mall, which was crazy busy.
Here are the citrine/peridot/sterling earrings I made for her.
I also found this necklace for her on Etsy at Deciduous Soul.
I also gave my friend Andrea a necklace from that Etsy shop for her birthdy last September.
And I gave myself one, too.
A few current favorites from Deciduous Soul...
The rest of the weekend was filled with watching movies, playing, and making projects. I was a little sad to return my nephews to my brother this afternoon.
But, the quiet that's come over the house is quite nice. I'm going to make dinner and work on a small project. Hopefully I can stay awake long enough to finish it.
