We met up with Mercedes' sister and nephew while we were there as well and I hadn't seen them in almost 2 years, so it was great catching up with them as well. For lunch I had a turkey avocado bacon sandwich and a salad. It was really good. I've been loving avocados lately.
To drink, I had a strawberry basil lemonade. The drink looked so pretty and tasted so good that I needed to take a picture of it of course. I definitely need to make this at home sometime this summer.

About a month ago, my department was invited to go to a Bulls game. It took a while for us to hear back on which game we were going to, but we finally got the tickets for Saturday March 2nd. I was so excited to go to my first Bulls game and go to the United Center for the first time. Also, there is no better way to go to your first Bulls game than to have box seat tickets and be with all your co workers (I enjoy my co workers). There were about 20 of us, the accounting and HR department. I car pooled with Rintu on the way there and we were the first ones to arrive. To add to my bridge pictures, I did a bridge outside in front of the Michael Jordan statue.
Shortly after me and Rintu arrived, the other members of our department arrived and it was time to get the party started! We got some food and sat down ready for the game to begin. I had some chicken fingers and chips.
Not too long after the game started, the dessert cart arrived. OMG it was insane! I was already full. I had already had 2 breakfasts and a decent sized lunch and snacked on some pretzels and ate chicken fingers for my dinner and now there were these HUGE cakes ( I wish I had taken a picture). There was a 6 layer carrot cake. 6 layers!!! It was insane. I decided to get a chocolate chunk cookie which was the size of my hand and I'm not kidding.
I did manage to eat all of it after kinda picking out some of the milk chocolate, because I'm more of a fan of dark or semi sweet chocolate in my cookies. I'm pretty much set on dessert for this whole week now. It was pretty good though.
The game lasted about 2.5 hours and was overall pretty entertaining. I loved that it was Latin theme night and the dancers were amazing. I also loved the gymnasts they brought in doing tricks with jumping rope, which is really tough. I can't even double dutch and I was never really all that good at jump roping either.
The game was exciting towards the end as the Bulls were in the lead. I can't say I'm a fan of sports or that I follow them at all, but, of course, being at the game I was routing for my home team. The bulls ended up winning so that was super exciting and then we got a group photo all together before heading home for the night.
