7 hours with my best -
two weekends ago, my bestie meghan was in chicago for a wedding so she and i got a glorious 7 hours together. it also just happened to be her birthday so it was a perfectly timed trip.
we spent the afternoon being tourists at portillo’s, walking the mag mile and having drinks at signature…
I really slacked in the picture taking department when Ben & I were in Chicago last weekend. Thankfully Alex documented the entire seven hours we spent together.
We basically ate and drank the entire time because, idk, what else is there to do? Alex made a reservation at Carriage House in Wicker Park (click through to her blog for photos) to celebrate my birthday. I’m still dreaming about the fried chicken thigh. And Ben is still dreaming about the $20 glass of Pappy Van Winkle he drank.
I’m going to have to plan another Chicago trip soon but seven hours just isn’t enough!
We should have named Webster “You Little Piece of Shit” because that’s pretty much what we’ve been calling him lately. We’ve apparently entered the terrible twos of puppyhood and it’s THE WORST. Even after a three mile walk in the evenings, he goes absolutely bananas every night. Jumping, chewing, barking. Thankfully he’s wagging his tail the entire time so at least someone is having a fun in this scenario.
Yesterday, our dog walker sent me a text that said “he has the sweetest disposition. has he barked yet?” To which I wanted to reply, “are you sure you’re at the right house?!”
We start a new puppy training class on Sunday (Petco classes were a joke) and I’m terrified that Webster is going to be craziest puppy in class.
"I was just talking yesterday about the inspirational thing I was going to say if I ran into you!"
"Well, what is it?"
"I haven’t thought of it yet!"
I am not a Human of New York. But if I was and my picture was taken and the photographer asked me what I would say to a large group of people, my answer would be “use your blinkers! they are there for a reason.” I know wouldn’t really apply to the people New York, but I would hope the message would get to the everyone else, specifically those in Fairfield County.
Selfies are better with puppies!
All my dreams have come true.
The things you do for puppy love! 7:45am freezing cold beach walks.
Friday night with my boys!
