At the airport...
A group of soldiers from the US Army were just walking through the airport and the terminal erupted into cheers. Indescribable! Everyone was cheering… Clapping, waving, shouting our thank you’s! It was very, very cool. Happy Memorial Day indeed.

Learn Something New Every Day: Running Shoe...
You should give your running shoes 24 hours between each use- it takes takes that long after a run for the cushion to get it’s spring back. (I totally didn’t know that. Did you?) ((Have I mentioned I love having a Running Brand as one of my clients.))

Anonymous asked: do you have any secret tattoos or piercings? what about simon? any tattoos?
No use crying over burnt bacon
It’s only Wednesday, but Simon has already had a pretty brutal work week. Contrary to popular belief, being a divorce lawyer isn’t all sunshine and jazz hands…. Last night, he needed me. (I knew this by his one word responses to my g-chats and the fact that as of 5pm he had still not sent me a single article dissecting the final episode of LOST.) So I did what any good wife would do - I made...
This Weekend Was For Celebrating!
This Weekend was for belly laughing with family and friends-that-feel-more-like family! This weekend was for cousin-time and scooting in for pictures with the birthday boy! This weekend was for packed apartments and big thumbs ups! This weekend was for (pink?!) martinis and serious dance-offs! This weekend was having fun. Good, Big, Rowdy Fun.
When Weekends Deliver
This weekend was possibly one of the most fun collection of days…in my entire life. Oh man, do I have stories for you. Unfortunately, I am slammed right now and will not get to my narrative updates until this evening. So to tie you over, here is a top 10 list of ways to make your weekend RULE: Attend a 21st Birthday Party (bonus points for shotgunning a beer out of a plastic megaphone) ...

LOST. and found.
My husband and I have watched every episode of LOST (120, for those who are counting) and on Sunday night we will sit down for the final installment in what has become the most important show of my life. We began watching LOST just few months ago, but I like to think the series found us at the exact time we needed it. It started in early December when Simon came home from work with a package...
You should get your friends. We are very close to the end, Hugo.– Lost.

Chi-town Spotlight: Bluebird
Friday Night double date with our new friends Danielle and David. Dinner out. Somewhere new (to us). We were looking for a place that was fun and not too fancy. Something that was cool without trying too hard. You know….just a solid spot with lots of beer choices, good lighting and tasty food. Bluebird delivered! This bucktown gastropub/winebar had a great vibe and even better...
Vroom Vroom Party Starter!
Big ups to my little bro and the entire University of Illinois Formula SAE team! They are in Detroit this weekend for the race they have been prepping for all year! (What’s Formula SAE, you ask…Only the coolest college class/club ever. They BUILD and DRIVE race cars.) Go team! Mama texted me this pic of Hen and Dad on race day morning.

In which I ask you a question...
I am curious about something, and I hope you’ll be willing to help… I am wondering how many of my readers live right here in Chicago (Or close enough, that a trip into the city is a fairly frequent occurrence). If you are a Chi-Town dweller, perhaps you could leave a comment/email/ask or like. Oh, and if you are a Chicago blogger, please share your URL - I’m on the hunt for...
