It's always nice to skip town and escape from reality - even if only for a couple of days.
Last week our friend Robbi asked Geoff if he wanted two tickets to see the Cubs play the Braves in Atlanta for this past Thursday. Originally from Chicago, Geoff is a Cubs fan - so of course he accepted. We had been wanting a chance to get to IKEA anyway (I can't WAIT until the Charlotte IKEA opens next spring!), so the timing was great.
During a gas fill-up stop we spotted this fun wall at a "Truck Wash" next to the gas station. Before getting back on the freeway we had a little fun.
I was SUPER excited for the game. I'm from Northern California, so I'm partial to the Giants..BUT....I was married into a love for the Cubs. Actually, I love any major league baseball game - give me hot dogs and nachos and I'm good to go. :)
Don't you love our coordinating Cubs fan outfits?
The most exciting part of the game was when the Cubs pitcher beamed one of the Braves at bat - I suppose he thought it was on purpose because he got really angry and started shouting, which soon prompted both teams in their entirety to crowd the field ready to fight. Drama - gotta love it!
Thursday evening we stayed with our friends Whitney and Matt and then hit up the IKEA the next day. No pics from our trip to IKEA, but rest assured, I'll post some of our new desk and chairs we got there soon! We're in the middle of painting the office, so the house is an absolute WRECK. I am SO excited to have a real work space that doesn't consist of me sitting on the couch with my laptop!
P.S. All of these images were shot with our point and shoot, which is a FUJI Finepix S7000. It's a great camera for a P&S, but we're looking for one that is smaller - something I can carry easily in my pocket if I wanted. Anyone have any recommendations? I'd like one that doesn't have much of a delay to trigger the shutter. Leave me a comment if you have one that you like!
