tow-head messes
This past weekend Andy and I went to Chicago to meet up with our friends from Omaha.  It was a nice vacation with four friends and my hubby.  We stayed at the Affinia Hotel one block off of Michigan Ave.  We were right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Chi-town.  We visited a couple of local bars, caught a late night movie, toured the Museum of Science & Industry, had a relaxing massage, great shopping, and ate wonderful food.  

I know I'm one of the first to complain to about the heat and humidity that we have down in the south, and I was really looking forward to cooler weather in Chicago, but 55 degrees and W-I-N-D-Y was a little too chilly for me.  A couple of the days we had great weather, mid 70's and sunny, but that 55 was nippy.  Nothing a new sweater can't take care of.  

I do have a short story I must tell...Sunday morning we were hanging out in our friends' room and they mentioned they saw a naked person across the street looking out another hotel room.  Our rooms were on the 28th floor - the hotel across the street had at least 35 floors. Several people in the other hotel were oblivious to the proximity of our hotel and the fact that we could see them. What am I getting at, you ask? We saw at least a half dozen naked people enjoying their Sunday morning and the view from their windows!  It was absolutely hilarious...fully naked, half naked - snuggling, talking on the phone, stretching, scratching, dressing, you name - it was happening .  

On Sunday after Andy and I left, our friends saw James Denton from Desperate Housewives at the Navy Pier.  Yes, I missed out on a photo op with a famous person, but I wouldn't have recognized him anyways - don't get me wrong, he's a cutie but he would have slipped right past me.

The lesson here - always be aware of your surroundings (for more than one reason) and shut the curtains!

Thanks for the great weekend guys.
