Long time, no see!

Tonight was our graduation practice for our ceremony tomorrow. It was just as boring as expected. It was GREAT to see old friends, though. I haven't seen anyone from my cohort (except for two women) since we finished back in July. It was just like old times! We were the obnoxious ones over in the corner, causing chaos and being loud. It was great!

As for the reception I mention the other day, what a bust!! Typical of Concordia University!! They had one little six-foot banquet table set up for 400 graduates! It was ridiculous! And the spirits were simply a keg of beer and some kind of punch. Absolutely NOT worth the half-hour we stood in line, that's for sure. My two friends and I left and went to Portillos! (That was a little dig to my friends who have deserted the Windy City!!) But, it was great to hang out with them, and catch up on things.

I missed our school's "Christmas party" tonight because I went to the rehearsal. I hope it went well. I'll have to get the scoop from Dori tomorrow.

My kids spent a good chunk of the day practicing our song for the assembly next week. They sound so damn cute, I'm seriously trying to figure out a way to record them so I can post it here. I think I may video them, but with the camera facing up or something, so you'll at least get the audio.

I gotta hit the sack. Big day tomorrow!

Guess what? We ate Italian Beefs at our holiday party last night! There's a Chicago pizza place just a couple miles away called Selmas and they have FANTASTIC Italian Beef! Tom was originally going to drive up to the Portillo's on the border of LA/Orange County but Friday late afternoon traffic would have been AWFUL so we decided to try this new place right up the street. The only thing we will do differently is toast the buns beforehand but otherwise it was as good as Portillo's! You must try it when you come out here in Feb!

I didn't realize there were now Portillos in CA. I guess I can't tease you about it anymore :(
