It’s been a long two months without my pup… counting the days until I go get him! In the meantime, he’s busy on the deck, smelling the flowers, chasing hummingbirds, eating blueberry pie and hanging out with Miss Jada. Such a tough life!

Billy. All I can say is I am so glad I was able to experience this show while he’s still out touring. Made for such an amazing, memorable evening. Even if it took me a day to recover. And sorry to all of those who received text after text that night with videos. It was too great not to share!

Prepping for the piano man at Wrigley on Friday! @rele27 #alwaysbeenanuptowngirl #GNO

BBQ. Boots. Beamer. Birthdays. (sail) Boats. More BBQ and Beverages.
Oh, and lots of country music. Second Windy City Smokeout, in a new location with lots of space and even more people. Friday was a blast (in green with boots), Sunday was hot (below, in Bub City tent). But still one of my favorite fests of the year, can’t wait to see what they come up with for next year. Though I might just get a one day pass rather than opting for three :)
Saturday we celebrated AAB’s birthday (center w/party cup!), with a deadly signature drink, sliders, some rain showers and some trinkets we picked up along the night… aka, Kelcy now creates small ships and I ended up with a “reserved” sign.  Never ceases to amaze me how much crazy this crew can get into… I definitely over-schedueld the weekend and I’m exhausted, I need a week to recover!

You know Brian Williams is amazing when he manages to make Bachelorette commentary sound like breaking news.

I love everything about this. Just love B. Williams. And his daughter. And I want to be invited to the viewing party.

Happy Birthday to the one and only Ashley Beam! First birthday as a Mrs! It’s clearly been an amazing year, from the wedding to KU games in Chicago, to the holiday celebrations, Napa and most recently the lake- I wish for much more fun, champs, cheeseburgers and debauchery this year! Love ya!

This weekend was one for the books. I am so grateful to Ashley, Will and the Beams for hosting us at Lake Norman in North Carolina. It was such a great, relaxing trip- from the amazing house (which is for sale btw!), to boat rides, floating while watching the golfers on Trump’s course, hanging with the twins, eating and drinking everything in sight… we were all so sad to leave. Glad to come back to Chicago with a tan, but man I wish I was dartying right now, in the lake, Susan shining down on us and making up more Amy hashtags… until next time North Carolina!
