I'm going to do a separate post with photos from the wedding so this post isn't HUGE, but here's how the rest of my past week went, in photos!
Last Monday (3.19.12) was my sister's bachelorette party/outing. Since she's only turning 19 in a few weeks and a good chunk of the people she invited were obviously under 21 we had to find somewhere we could go that was fun, but legal for them. We decided on Dave and Busters and visited the one just on the outskirts of Milwaukee as tolls in Illinois are now ridiculous (they doubled them AGAIN after the 1st of the year - 2nd time within 10 years) and I figured $4 to cross the border up north verses at least $7 to go into the suburbs was a better deal since we had planned on caravan-ing up there if we had enough people. Sadly, we had a several people cancel last minute so it ended up just being me, my sis and one of the other bridesmaids. We still had fun though! We each got an Eat and Play Combo and I treated them to the Belgian Chocolate Fondue for dessert, which was yummy! We spent most of our game credits on the ticket-giving games - my sis and I both hit jackpots on 2 different games, I got 280 from one, she got just over 300 on another. I spent my tickets on a monkey plush with super long arms that velcro together plus a D&B hackysack which both went to Jay.

Hubby decided he needed a new laptop. The one he was using was his mom's old one, with a messed up keyboard so he had to use a wireless one with it and was getting tired of it. He wanted something small and thin to use and easily take with him for his writing as he's been in author-mode for awhile now with lots of ideas flowing through that head of his. So we went to Best Buy and put a laptop he had picked out on our Best Buy card that has been sitting, paid off, for awhile now.

Hubby also learned the other day that his favorite author had a new book that came out earlier this month, so we took a trip to Barnes and Noble (which only reminded me of how much I missed the convenience of Borders, as this meant we had to take a trip out to the mall!).
