Beer and buddies

Slept in a bit and grabbed breakfast. The guys have kept some of their Halloween decorations up and it's pretty hilarious, as you can see. AJ had rehearsal and I went home then we met at Chicago Brauhaus, which is closing in a few weeks! We had some sausage and beer and good times with friends.

So happy

Kelly and I ran 5 miles this morning! Despite the cold weather and patches of ice! It was a good run but I have a hard time with breathing in the cold air. I came back home to relax and then went to AJ's. Look at this beautiful dinner he made us!! Ugh, I'm so lucky and I need to cook more dangit. We also watched a movie and then SNL. A lovely Saturday.

The city has somewhat turned into a winter wonderland. I grabbed some snacks and headed home to watch movies and wait for AJ. I hadn't seen him all week!! He has a lot of rehearsals and not a lot of free time. Such is this time of year!

First snow!!

First snow of the yeeeearrrr!! I love it!! Some nice big chunky snow. Now it really feels like winter and the holidays are coming. I actually would love even more snow this year! That way when spring comes, it feels like we've earned it :)

Huuuuump dayyy

A nice chilly Chicago evening. I went straight from work to Intelligentsia to get some fuel for our Playground board meeting. It was long and super productive. Nice to have a group of people that are really wanting to accomplish goals for the theater and its future!

Our Sketchtest lineup has been filling up like crazy. I decided to email and contact people who have performed at the show before or who I just know through the comedy world. I asked them to play and told them how much I love their sketches and got a really awesome response. So we're all filled up through the end of the year! Come watch and support comedy!!

Bright lights, big city

These early sunsets are kind of the worst, except that the city is beautiful at night :)

My babe is famous!

AJ did an ad for Jewel and the video is popping up all over instagram!!! He's so handsome!!! We had a fun date night and pigged out on burgers at BopNGrill and then saw Thor Ragnarok. A little too tongue and cheek but overall, a fun movie.

Even though I had the day off, I ended up working for a few hours this morning. Blehhhhhhhh. There was stuff I just had to take care of. But I made it to the gym and then grabbed some coffee and a treat and did a little shopping in my neighborhood and then went home to watch some TV. Not bad Friday!

Recorded an improv podcast with a friend of mine and then took a nice stroll home. A very eerie and beautiful night :)

Halloweeny stuff

Had some beautiful weather today and snapped some pics during my walk to Whole Foods. We had a Halloween party today! So I decided to make spinach artichoke dip and then we had some beer and snacks and Young Frankenstein in the background. Nice to get a little break from work.

Party time

A lovely morning in Rogers Park; AJ and I grabbed breakfast and then I grabbed more Halloween stuff and then time to party! I'm sure you can recognize who we dressed as. One of the best movies ever. And the party also had apple bobbing!! And AJ won! During one round he got 19 apples! He even bruised his chest during bobbing.....that's commitment.

I went everywhere today. First to work, then to visit the new Apple store, then to McCormick Place for the Hot Chocolate expo to pick up my race bib and some friends' bibs. Then to Lakeview and searching for missing Halloween costume parts. Then to AJ's for dinner and a movie! And some quality cat time (I never thought I'd say that).

Another gray day. It's finally gotten cold here and it's like fall feels rushed. All the leaves are changing suddenly and quickly. Winter is coming!!

Shoes and shows

Bought some new shoes at DSW today! Some new loafer boat shoes! Also, it was the last improv show tonight for AJ's group at the Crowd Theater. It was, by far, the best show of the run. Oh man, I haven't laughed that hard in a loooooong time. My face is still hoeeible, bruising around my eye and my lip still has a bad cut but it's healing :)

Day after

My face is still gross so I worked from home but made a short trip to the coffee shop. All I know is that I have no headaches and I'm not dizzy so yay for no concussion!

Bike fail

Good news: I visited the new Apple store and it's really cool. Bad news: I hit a speed bump that was more like a speed wall tonight on my way to AJ's and broke my face. Eeeeeeeeek!! Actually, nothing was broken THANK GOD. I hit the bump which was a 90 degree angle and flew over my bike and my head bounced off the concrete. Fun! So some scraping and bruises around my eye and then a big ole cut on my lip. Learned my lesson, I need a bright bike light!!

Fun day!!

Woke up early to go run and then take some candid pics of this adorable family I met through a friend. Then drinks for Dave Caro's bday and then visited my babe at work. I was hoping to relax a bit today but I it turned into a super busy but super fun day!
