Where I've Been

Monday, January 28, 2013

I just realized that I've only posted three times in the past few weeks. Things have been a little crazy over here, but also so, so good. Alaina and I have been training our new interns. These girls are amazing! Then there's the usual work stuff (The Everygirl and graphic design projects). One of my best friends came in on Thursday and left this morning. CrossFit, friends, and a few other pretty fantastic things going on. I've been a busy girl. Let's talk about it.

1. Dinner at Paris Club. The dessert wasn't exactly paleo, but we were celebrating Colleen's birthday, and it was well worth it. Order that waffle thing. Woah...

2 & 3. Played tour guide to Sheila–my oldest friend of 24 years (we went to elementary school together). We went to the bean, walked Michigan avenue, Oak Street, ate at 3,482 restaurants (it's freezing and eating seems to be one of the only things to do in this city), went Second City, Jayson Home & Garden, lunch with Alaina, went out with friends, etc. And I brought her to CrossFit! She did the baseline with my favorite coach! So proud of her.

And speaking of CrossFit, I did my 3rd Rx WOD on Saturday. It was a partner WOD / 25 min AMRAP. 6 Hang power cleans (65 lbs), 7 wall balls (14 lbs), 8 box jumps (20 in). I am so, so sore, but feel so good!

4 & 5. Celebrated Colleen's 27th! #lovemygirls

6. A snowy stroll through Lincoln Park with Sheila. I love the snow, but I am so ready for warmer weather. Already anticipating trips to the beach and sitting on every patio possible. Street festivals, movies in the park...I cannot wait! It's going to be a long few months for this California turned Chicago girl.

A few other things. I finally upgraded to the iPhone 5. LOVE this thing. The battery lasts forever, it's light, pretty, and lightning fast. I also bought my first cubs shirt. It's really cute. I can't name a Cub and have only been to one game, but I really love their logo & I love my city.


  1. I hear ya about life getting busy...I've noticed myself struggling with time. Your post makes me long to go back to Chicago!! I've only been there in the summer, but I imagine it's so beautiful in the winter! Glad to hear you love the iphone 5! I'm getting one in April!! =) Have a great week!!

  2. Omg I can't wait for warm weather to get here. Chicago is the BEST summer city, hands down.


  3. I am so jealous of your snow! The best I've seen is a little bit of sleet!

  4. It looks like you've had a blast and check out that powdery white snow!!! That's definitely the thing I hate most about Florida, no snow.

  5. Your posts make me want to visit Chicago!!

  6. I was wondering where you'd been. Glad to hear that it's all good things going on in your life. Have a great rest of the week!

  7. Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.
