1. I am going to probably leave my website looking like crap and use it as motivation to redesign the site. Sorry it looks ugly. Stay tuned for it to look even prettier than it was before! 2. Eric's opinion of me: "I think she tries really hard to get people not to like her." 3. My coworkers think it is odd that I love competitive eating and yet crumbs in a jelly jar disgust me. 4. Heather and I have furniture! No more sitting on the floor! 5. Tuesday night I met Josh for dinner in Oak Park. Yay! 6. Wednesday night Mat came...

1. Heather thinks it's weird that I have never shaved my legs above the knee. 2. Heather's response to our night out watching I'm a Major League Eater: "You guys (me, Pat, Tim) would start laughing at some point and I didn't get it. I figured it was some kind of competitive eating inside joke." 3. Thursday night Heather and I got Guatemalan food and we shared a pitcher of strawberry margarita. That may have helped and may have hindered my ability to edit photos. 4. Saturday night I met up with Chelsa and we got tapas and shared a pitcher of sangria....

one. Friday night I met up with Chelsa at Julius Meinl for dinner. My goat cheese salad and black forest mocha were yummy. We caught up a bit but called it an early night. two. Saturday I had a photography job in the morning but it didn't go so well as it was pouring rain and I was supposed to take photos outside :( Hopefully Friday I will be able to do more, although I had been looking forward to having the morning off. :( I spent the rest of the day ironing laundry in an attempt to get the living room to look...

one. My blog has felt neglected lately. :-( two. Sunday I went to watch Chelsa's choir concert downtown. When I got back Heather said she wanted to get end tables from Pier One and asked if I could drive becasue she had crap in her car. I didn't want to because it was a Cubs game night and i would have had to have given up my parking spot. But I did it. When we got back we could not find parking and decided to try the spot in the back (which we actually do pay for). While trying to park I got...

Friday night I met up with Heather and her friend Alyssa to the corner wine bar/pizza place Frasca. Did I mention it is heaven that I live with one wine bar on the corner of my block and another two blocks down? Of course, I had to limit my wine intake because its not free like the wine styles tastings. So I settled for just one glass of Riesling. We had a delicious appetizer plate of cheese and bruschetta and meat. And then I had a shrimp and bacon pizza. That sentence included three of my favorite food words. Heather made...

Tuesday, May 26 My coworker gave me some asparagus she picked. Welcome first food to the fridge: I made pasta: Then I passed out. I was tired. Wednesday, May 27 Heather and I went to Volo for dinner. Do you even have to ask how excited I am to have a wine bar two blocks away? I hadn't been there since my birthday two years ago. We got free glasses of '08 Cortijo, Viura, Blanco Rioja because I mentioned that I followed them on Twitter and that I saw a promotion for it there. I'm awesome. I had truffled potato ravioli. Yum. And lots of...

Sunday, May 24 Spent all morning making my bedroom purdy. The living room is still my closet. In the afternoon Chelsa came over and we headed to Eric's place for a BBQ. We had cheese-filled hot dogs bought with food stamps. We watched people play beer die and I still have no idea what the rules are. And flippy cup but I am pretty sure the rules of that were much simpler. Afterwards we headed to Hydrate for a benefit for Ron's theatre company. It was a cabaret. Me and Chelsa stole a lot of popcorn. The bartender was hot but I had...

After the photo shoot Saturday I met with Jen and Andrew downtown to walk through Millennium Park and Grant Park. Who knew it would be so COLD? There was a wedding party taking photos and the bridesmaids were in big pink dresses. We determined that JoeJoe definitely needs to wear that for her wedding. And Buckingham Fountain was open! Rejoice! Joe and Alina met up with us too so we headed to Elephant and Castle for dinner. They didn't have beer on tap and were out of most beers. Not that I cared. My fish and chips were yummy though. Afterwards we tried...
