WILW...


This will be the What I'm Loving Wednesday:  Chicago Edition.  Since I haven't had a chance to share with you my anniversary trip to Chicago, I'm gonna do it today with what I loved about it.  Here we go!


I'm loving...that we made a quick detour & toured the Cave of the Mounds.
It was pretty cool but at one point, I got a little claustrophobic.  Eeek!




I'm loving...Navy Pier.  That was probably my favorite place.  
A beautiful look at the city, restaurants, shopping & an IMAX theater 
where we saw Crimson Peak (my review on the movie is here).  Wonderful.

 

I'm loving...all the people watching I did.  I love doing that & Chicago is a great place to do that.
I saw this gal that reminded me of Helena from Orphan Black.  
I was waiting for her to start eating!  Tee hee!


I'm loving...that we got to go see Tom Rhodes perform at Zanies.  He put on a good show.
I also found a love of Bailey's in my hot cocoa/coffee.  Yum! 


I'm loving...that we got to spend the afternoon watching football at a Packer bar.
It was a good time.  We had great seats & just hung out with our fellow Packer fans in Chicago!
GO PACK GO! 


I'm loving...that I got to celebrate two years being married to this man.
It has not been easy whatsoever but I do love him & I know he loves me.
We've been through a lot, more than most people know but he is so great & understanding.
Plus, he puts up with my shit & I'm not easy to deal with most days.
So, Paul, I love you & thank you for loving me.

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessicaor any of the other hosts.  :)

The only thing I can think about talking about is food, breakfast food to be exact.  I want to fill up on some delish carbs in the form of hash browns, toast, French toast & a sausage patty (just to mix it up a bit).  I want to be sitting at a cute lil diner chomping away...but sadly, I am not, I am at work instead.  Boo!

I am just thinking about all the things I would rather be doing instead of work, like, that in six weeks, the hubby & I will be on our way to Vegas.  The closer we get the more excited I get to be away for a week straight...I may never come back.  Maybe I'll become a cocktail waitress & leave again.  That would be the bestest thing ever...okay, maybe not the bestest but it would be pretty dang cool.

Since this post is just all over the place, I might as well talk about the fact that it's Valentine's Day.  I…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
