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.

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

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…
