Last Sat and Sun

so I hope your weekend went wonderfully well.

on Sunday I was invited to my cousin's place to eat a very tasty Christmas meal. We drank too much and I swear we ate toooo much. Opened gifts and just hung out. Towards the end of the night we ended up going to Gary's friends home somewhere close to Oak Park. Not sure exactly where as I was in the back seat with my niece and friend Sheila.

They took me to this wonderful home built in the 1800s. My cousin had told me about this home, but it's one of those things where u have to go see it to believe it. I stupidly did not have my camera with me or maybe I did and I was a little bit to toasty to find it in my bag. Plus it would of been rude to whip it out and start taking pics of someones home right?

well let me tell you it was a BIG treat. We were greeted with Champagne and we got a hour tour, the house has three floors plus a cellar NOT A BASEMENT. They were wonderfully nice people. Okay I wish I could show you pics, but the home was like if you stepped into antique heaven. They had two humongous sun rooms, the nativity set took over one whole room wall like if you were at church, the pool table was covered with zebra skin, the best room of all was the green room upstairs all the way down this hallway that had this perfect Christmas tree and beautiful flowered wallpaper with all these vintage pictures. Their doggie sleeps in that room it's bigger then my bathroom. One of the guest rooms has its own sun room and as you were leaving it goes down this other hallway. I wish I would of had my camera, but again did not want to be rude.

I can go on and on as I was truly amazed and happy that I went to see this home. At the end they invited us to have some cake and cookies and more champagne... they were getting ready to leave the next day to go stay at their other home in Florida. Yes, WOW is all I have to say. So here are a few random pics.

my Aunt and Gary, my mom's chicken tamales, my funky shoes and a nice arrangement that Gary bought for my cousin Yoli. See ya soon.
