meeting steve, the cubs - fukudome, karyns, bowling & a photo booth

okay so for the first day in FOREVER i took a day off during the week... honestly i don't know when the last time myself or hubby did that was... too long. so one of my best girlfriends came in from atlanta with her NEW BOYFRIEND to take us to the cubs game. --- now i don't care or know a thing about baseball... but pass up the chance to met her new man, grill him and find out if he is the ONE -HELL NO!!

a few days ago it was like 80.. yesterday like 40 or something ridiculous it was FREEZING. i had on a long sleeve shirt and a lined spring coat and thought i'd be okay - W R O N G . my girlfriend coming from atlanta brought no socks with her no coats, nothing. thankfully her dad gave her a coat and some gloves and told her she'd need these for the game. so we get to the game and i am dyyyyyyyyyyying -- i am cold blooded anyway i LOVE the heat and sun - hubby bought us a cubs blanket which helped considerably.

i liked her boyfriend immediately (so did hubby!) (and yes i do think he is the ONE though it is a bit premature as they've only been seeing each other since nov. last year -- still... we really like him!!) besides the horrible weather we had an absolute BLAST. my girlfriend who knows EVERYTHING about baseball was trying her best to fill me in what the hell was going on.. i think i picked up a few things but lost control over the player FUKUDOME --- DOES ANYONE ELSE READ THIS FUCK U DO ME???? i mean i laughed over this for like 20 minutes straight --- uncontrollably so did her boyfriend (and anyone who laughs at my jokes has got to be a keeper) -- so my girlfriend is like i don't get it. but i can't stop laughing... like uncontrollably laughing at this name which seems completely made up. ---- so like things calm down and like AN HOUR later she is like........... OH and starts laughing and FINALLY gets it.

so everyone (even hubby) is great and offers to go to karyns out to eat with me. steve had never tried raw food before and was intriqued and so off we went -- with a stop at whole foods to pick up some no sulfite added wine because karyns is byob.

so i had the ravioli, scott had the pizza, lorie had the pasta, and steve had the seaweed wraps (which i normally love but there is one type there i do not... i think they are a walnut base ???? still not bad but it was my least favorite dish) -- we had a side of guacamole and chips (which everyone loved the chips so i have to find out what they were made of... didn't look like they had any flax or seeds in them so ??? not sure - but they were delish!!) -- and the garlic breadsticks - which everyone liked by hubby.

so at dinner we are talking about how competitive my girlfriend is.. (and well how all of us are) and her soon to be husband is like OH I KNOW! so we get to talking about bowling... i don't know how or why - long story short -- we are in chicago where we can do anything - AND WE END UP GOING BOWLING on diversey and western or something to the rock and bowl. -- VERY CHEESY!!!! but we had all had a bit to drink and steve was sure if he took lorie bowling after she had a few he could beat her - and he didn't... but we played boy girl teams - and we lost horribly -- not by lories fault but honestly in my life i've never been so pathetic. though in my defense i can not drink and bowl and having had two glasses of wine at karyns it was pretty much a sure loss from the start. i was also a little picture happy during our trip to rock and bowl so i just couldn't focus...

hubby throwing the ball at like 200 miles per hour -- HONESTLY the pins fall in FEAR before the ball even reaches them...

--- lorie very upset at a less than perfect throw ---

steve after he broke the machine!!!!! (and we had to call to have it fixed.. notice ball hit guard in background)

and the last pic should teach all photographers out there to NEVER SURRENDER YOUR CAMERA (especially if you've clearly had too much to drink!!) --- WTF AM I DOING - giving a gene a run for his money?????????????

and i can NOT pass a photo booth without forcing everyone to get their pics taken -- they are always the WORST pics which makes them the BEST pics!!

so having to let our babysitter go home and having to get home to the boys we called it a night and are meeting them sunday for a b-day party for more in depth q & a with my girlfriends maybe soon to be hubby. lol!
