Hello my favorite blog friends!! I’m counting down the days till Kyle and I head out on our cruise…only 5 more to go!!! But first let me catch you up on our weekend happenings!

It started out with a scare! My Grandpa was rushed by ambulance to the ER, he had fluid on his heart and it was racing. We all sat in the ER waiting room for 3+hours waiting to hear. They finally were able to stabilize his heart and Kyle & I made the tough decision to go ahead with our weekend plans, heading to Chicago. Thankfully he was able to go home from the hospital on Monday!

Kyle and I with his parents hit the road to Chicago Friday night. Kyle’s sister & her husband live there. Also Kyle’s Aunt & Uncle flew in from CA.

And we all went to the Iowa vs Northwestern football game on Saturday!DSC06568

It was fun to see Kyle’s Aunt & Uncle from CA! They are quite entertaining!!DSC06566

And we all couldn’t wait to cheer on the Hawks!DSC06570

If anyone says Iowa fans don’t travel well, they weren’t at the game on Saturday!DSC09320

I don’t see much purple in that crowd!! It was awesome!!DSC09319

Unfortunately it was a rainy, chilly day…!DSC06579

But we had our ponchos to stay dry!DSC09322DSC06581

Unfortunately the Hawks pull out a win. Such a bummer!

Even with the loss we couldn’t pass up some Chicago style pizza! Giordanos!!!DSC06142

Aunt Debbie got her own personal sized pizza…no one wanted to share a spinach pizza! ;)DSC09324

Kyle and I split a Hawaiian with his sister & her hubby!! Mmmm, delish!!!DSC09325

Mmmmm, love this pizza!!!DSC09326

We let our pizza settle and couldn’t finish the night without some ice cream!DSC06587

I <3 ice cream!!! ;)DSC06586

We all passed out from our food coma and the sadness of the Hawkeye loss. The next morning we went out for breakfast before hitting the road. DSC09328

We said our goodbyes and drove the 5+ hours home.DSC09329

It was a good weekend, minus the Hawkeye loss! Now we’re looking forward to our cruise next week with my sisters and a few other friends!! Cannot wait!! :)

Happy Hump day friends…only 2 more days till the weekend!!

I've never had Chicago style pizza but it sure does look good.

Sorry your team didn't win. :(

I know you have to be so excited about your trip. Can you sneak me on the boat? said...

Glad that your grandpa is doing better! Hospital visits are always so long and scary :(

Looks like you had a great weekend regardless of the loss! Coming from a football school I know how losses can seriously put a damper on a weekend!
