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.

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.


My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
