Weekend. Weekend. Weekend. After being sick and stressed, this weekend was definitely not long enough… kicked-off with Cards/Cubs Friday, where as a Cardinals fan I have no problem eating my hot dog WITH ketchup, followed by shenanigans with the Hale sisters + bf. Can anyone in this city tell us what CDW does?!
Saturday morning was the first of two delicious brunches this weekend. First at Two Sparrows. The cinnamon roll with goat cheese frosting was to die for. The rest of my meal was (while messed up) mediocre, but check out those tater tots! Sunday I brunched with the Cooks who were in town (I get to keep Christine all week while she studies for boards!) at Bub City. While there are no pics, let me assure you- the fried chicken biscuit sandwich is no joke. Not a small little biscuit either, it was great!
Had the best time hanging out with Chris last night, can’t wait to see what the rest of this crazy week brings… watch out Detroit, here I come!

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!
