Glenview Girls Wknd

Once my brain-cells recharge and my cheeks stop hurting from laughing at the lake all weekend, I'll be sure to write more about the funnies shared in Delevan :)

The Hideout

Instead of asking, 
"Where the hell are we?" 
I only found myself questioning, 
"How had I never been to this hidden Chicago gem??"

Haaaaaappy Friday!


Hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

Josh Moulton Art

Last Friday we went to a gallery opening for 
Shera's super talented buddy, Josh Moulton.  

I can't wait to pick up my "Lincoln Park Market" print today 
and hang it proudly in my apartment :)
Definitely saving my pennies to buy this gem in the Fall...

How Does She Do It?

Last night Liz hosted Book Club and I was 
absolutely in awe of her awesomeness :)

At one point I looked at their dining room and was all, 
"I want to go to there!"
And so I did :)

"Isn't life just yummy?!"

Over the wknd I had the absolute pleasure to attend a party thrown by three incredible hosts. 
Steve provided his lovely apartment as the venue

Erica provided the liquid entertainment (always a fav)

and her longtime boyfriend, the insanely talented Jon Ashton,
cooked-up a "tasting" menu that was unbelievable!

I creeped in the kitchen for a while to observe his awesomeness
but ultimately found myself glued to the serving table :)

While solving all the world's problems over beers, burgers, 
braised ribs, and a bruschetta recipe that melted my heart,
Jon said, "Isn't life just yummy?" 
I nodded happily in agreement. 
"Yes. Life is yummy!"

The Celebration Continues

Timmy & Shannon sent this pic of my family last night and it brought a smile to my face. So fun to see other perspectives 
on a truly wonderful wedding :)

Hahahaha, GUILTY!


Get your shit together, Google

When checking my Spam folder this morning,
I was all sorts of upset with Gmail...

Ummmm, you can't filter the President! 
Especially when he's asking "me" to bid on dining with him.  
Don't you worry, Barack - I've added you to my contact list :)

Some Wear Many Hats

I apparently, wear many shoes...
Last night I walked in the door from beach volleyball and totally burst out laughing at this crime scene of happy feet. 

If I didn't live alone, I'd for sure have thought there was a party going on in my apartment. Summer is clearly in full gear :)

And with that, I leave you with a deep thought 
from one funny funny man: 

“Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.”~Jack Handey

Wake Up & Smell the Roses

The Oz Park Emerald Rose Garden is 
undoubtedly one of my most favorite places in Chicago.
This wknd I picnicked and spent an hour watching
TED speakers on my phone. Majorly enjoyable :)
