Good Morning!

Yesterday drove to the beautiful city of Orland Park Illinois. Well, first I drove to my sisters’ house where she showed me this:


She snuck out this week and got a tattoo! It was incredibly surprising as she has always been firmly against them! It’s gorgeous and I am jealous. 

We had an uneventful drive, which is just the way I like them. 

Got a quick bit to eat when we got here and then checked into the hotel. Then immediately left to hit up Trader Joes and stock up on wine, pita chips and hummus. 🙂 The priorities in our lives.

Eventually we also finally met up with Nina &Mary Beth

We went out for a quick dinner at The Corner Bakery. I really like The Corner Bakery and we do not have any near Toledo. My husband REALLY likes The Corner Bakery so I of course took this picture and tossed it on Facebook last night.


Not sure why I didn’t take more pictures. Then we all came back to the hotel where I drank the first bottle of win (with a little bit of help) and fell asleep by 11:30 and slept really really hard! Had a bad dream and woke up with a start at 555 am. So here I am! Of course those times are Toledo times, so here it’s 455 am wake up time. The nice thing about this hotel is the dividing door between the bedroom and sitting room so I can make coffee and type on here without waking my sister. Though, I wish I had thought to leave my suitcase out in this room. I would take my morning pills and put on my workout clothes. Maybe I’ll not worry about it today. We’ll see. I’ll probably get enough exercise in our day in Chicago today. I will take pictures today!
