Crock Pot Chili

Bowling Trophy Wife.

1. Sunday people kept giving me stuff “so I wouldn’t feel left out”…I’m not like 5 years old or a dog, I can handle quite well that mothers are getting presents on mothers day and not me.

2. Saturday I hosted 24…I made way more turkey chili than actually fit in the crockpot…

but it was yummy.

3. Saturday night I went to see Eric in his play Sylvia. It was very good. I was kind of annoyed at first because just about every single seat was roped off so we had no where we could sit! But luckily we were able to find the two seats that weren’t roped off…

Eric was awesome. And he makes a better woman than I do. Just sayin.

Afterwards we went to a bar and played the most epic game of not Jenga ever. Ever.

4. Current pet peeve: when you’re at a corner waiting for a walk sign and someone behind you walks in front of you. Mind you, I do that all the time. But I can also guarantee that whoever steps in front of me will be slower than me. I walk fast.

5. I need to strike a balance between wanting to lose weight and wanting to eat everything in sight.

6. At 8am, walking back from Starbucks before having coffee…if someone yells I-L-L, it will take me way too long to figure out what they mean.

7. I want to live here.

8. Last night I went to Chemically Imbalanced to watch some improv with Eric. We saw a group called Computer then a group called Dummy. Dummy is a husband/wife team and is awesome. Most improv you see is very high energy and they were much more low key and it worked really well. Their whole first part seemed more like a character study than an improv scene. I enjoyed it very much.

9. Mat came over the other night and we watch Saw II and drank wine. You know you have chosen the right wine when the girl says “just get what’s in your hand.”

10. And last night the tables kind of turned and now I kind of have the best looking Idol picks…

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
