teeny peek at my weekend

Pinball Expo! Bet you're thinking, "what?" Pinball is lots of fun gang! Definitely a strange little culture of people! I was one of maybe 4 gals there! The rest of the people were younger fellows and middle aged men who were a bit stinky, most lacking wedding bands, but really good at pinball! These fellows lives revolve around pinball! It was nuts! ;)

I had fun though! Free Play all day; 24 hours! ha!! I now love Bride of Pinbot and Attack from Mars oh and FunHouse - I want a FunHouse please! If any one of you ladies have a pinball or know a pinballer tell me :) I feel a bit alone here! Oh I brought hand sanitizer with us because well I just had to ha!
first time playing attack from mars!
We ate at Superdawg! I love a good hotdog - it's kinda a secret of mine! Yes, I've read The Jungle, but I don't care - they haven't killed me yet! Plus I eat them only at backyard cookouts and the 4th of July, so I'll be ok - fingers crossed! Look what they had at Superdawg -cube cream!! It was gross, but it looked awesome!
cube cream?
I'm starting a 1 up mushroom blanket! I saw this and decided I needed one! It's gonna be awesome! I picked a 1 up mushroom - A. because it's better than just red mushroom BIG and B. because I had a bunch of green yarn ;)
1 up mushroom in the making!
I have a zillion more photos! I'll post more through the week! Seriously if you pinball tell me :)
I'm getting ready for the Farley Family Halloween Party!! :) I'm stoked! Getting the mummy costumes together! My brother, Danny comes home Thursday - very stoked about that! Lauren - please come home! Please!!! We need you to complete the party! I'll pay for all your gas and Starbucks needs! Please! Tell her everyone!!
How was your weekend!? Here are my Chicago photos!
Pin It

Becky! You are the blanket queen! You are going to finish your Mario 1-Up before I even get halfway finished with mine! Damn my disdain for granny squares! Yours are so beautiful though. Honestly.

my grandpa used to own this little neighborhood store, and he had a few pinball machines. i liked trying to play, but it was amazing the guys that would come ther and spend a ridiculous amount of money playing all day! and i don't think any of them had girlfriends.

bebe bird beck said...

A pinball convention?!
That is so something you don't get to do everyday.
I laughed at the hand sanitizer. I would have brought some too.

You're so flippin cute.

ckscribbles said...
