My Mom is coming to visit me next week!
This will be her first visit to Chicago and I'm super excited to show her this fabulous city. But, I need help... I'm not a touristy person. Just give me a dive bar with a good beer selection and I'm happy. I need ideas on where to take her. I've got navy pier, shedd aquarium, willis tower, cupcakes and Chicago dogs on the list. What am I missing?
My dog is now legal
Thankful because: I just read an article stating that police will start cracking down on unregistered Chicago dogs- perhaps Chicago is hurting for $$$? Apparently only 5% of Chicago dogs are actually registered in Chicago, and police will begin visiting dog parks to fine people with unregistered dogs. So I plunked down $16 this morning to make CB legal. ($5 a year, $1 processing fee). Now I am happy to avoid a costly fine, and CB is happy to be a legal resident of Chicagolandia.
Thankful to Nike
I was selected as a winner from the shamrock shuffle #makeitcount photo contest. For winning, Nike sent me one of their sweet new GPS watches. I can't wait to take this baby out for a run on the lakefront this weekend! *although I still love my garmin :)
Thankful and not for the Helicopters
The Blackhawks have been practicing "urban" training over the past few days in downtown. Monday was cool because they started around dusk buzzing low around the buildings. Tuesday it was not so cool at 10pm mainly because I couldn't take photos of them...
