Busy Week!

It's only Wednesday and it's already been a busy week for the Bennet's! Sunday we were lucky enough to get tickets to the Bears game against Seattle. The Bears sucked and lost, of course, but it was a blast anyway! Thanks to Beau White for hooking us up with his season tickets and face value!
Also on Sunday, we got an email from an EC alumnae Chrystal Downs offering two tickets to an exclusive O.A.R. show that we were wanting to go to...for FREE! We accepted of course, and had an awesome time at the concert. It was held at the Metro, across the street from Wrigley Field. It's a very small venue, so the chance to see one of our favorite bands that close was once in a lifetime.
Today is Doctor's appointment #4! Glucose screening and general health checkup. I'm sure everything will go great.
Saturday is the Baby Shower, so hopefully everyone that checks this blog is going! We're looking forward to seeing everybody and having a great time in this beautiful Fall weather. Travel safe to Mackinaw, and put on your party hats!
Bears Game!
You may have heard about the new Eye sculpture in Chicago? Well, we passed it on the way to the Bears game, and not being one to waste a photo opportunity, Ashleigh capitalized, and of course, it's hilarious.

Jude didn't complain about the seats, so they must have been OK.
There she is, good ol' #54
I know what you all are thinking, but no, that is not Ashleigh playing middle linebacker for the Bears. Although given her athletic ability and current pregnant aggression, I wouldn't put it past her..
 O.A.R. Concert!
As mentioned before, we were given two tickets to an exclusive concert that you couldn't even buy tickets for. Ours ended up being VIP tickets, which basically meant you got in an hour early and had first dibs on an OPEN BAR, appetizers and location to watch the show. All in all, it was a pretty great way to spend a Tuesday night....  
here's a couple links to videos we took at the show: - saxophone part during "Hey Girl" - Bucket Boys making an appearance
excitement was building, as we waited in the VIP line to get in
Very cool, very small venue. Definitely once in a lifetime
It felt good to be "rolling VIP' for once. Believe it or not we pulled this picture off in one try. haha.
We wanted to sit in the balcony area where Jude could rest his bones for a few minutes, but instead we ended up in the very front row. Life's tough sometimes.
yeah, we were close
This guy is amazing
Mark, lead singer kept everyone entertained all night.
