We could not have asked for better weather last night at Ravinia! Perfect temperature, slight breeze and no bugs!
We all caravaned from our office – during that time of day it took us about an hour to get there. It didn’t take long for us to set up the food and drinks!
The lawn area really fills up fast – its first come, first serve for the lawn seats, but we found a great spot. It’s amazing though how elabrate some of the tablescapes get! From candelabras, fresh flowers! I tried to get some pics to give you an idea:
One of the Doobie Brothers sons did the opening act – about 20 minutes. The Doobie Brothers sounded amazing – you know how some “old” bands sound old? Not this one! But I had to wonder how many times they have sung “Jesus is Just Alright” – probably a million times! (That’s one of my favorite songs btw!).
It was a late night though – by the time the caravan got back to the office and Hannah and I got home, it was 11:15, and I stayed up with Tony until midnight!
It was a great night and look forward to next year – this is our 2nd Annual GNO with the office, and each year I imagine will get more elabrate!
Breakfast this morning was, of course, my egg sammie on my homemade garlic bagel – love this one! With 2 ounces of rasperries and 2 ounces of blackberries on the side.
I am definitely working out at lunch today – haven’t worked out since Friday!
Morning break is over, come on back for Grilled Turkey, Pear, Spinach and Pepper Jack Cheese Sammie!
