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…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

True frickin' dat!  The old phrase "think before you speak" comes to mind.  I know that sometimes emotions get the best of us & we don't think things through before we let words leave our lips.  Sometimes those words can be hurtful, embarrassing or lovable.  Lovable doesn't seem to be one that comes to mind, I'm sure, but I remember the first time that Goose told me that he loved me.  He didn't think it through & those three lil words came flying outta his mouth at a birthday party in an old friend's living room.  I could not believe it but those words were already out in the universe.

I doubt that Goose would change anything now but at the time, it scared him to say those words & he probably would have thought it through a little better but, in that case, I'm glad that he didn't.

However, I'm really trying to get the girls to think before they speak & I tell them that once words leave their lips, they may have it off thei…
