Bears vs. Ravens – Epic Monsoon Game

Back a few Sundays ago, on November 17th, the Chicago Bears
played the Baltimore Ravens. And an epic game it was. Not because of the actual
sport itself, but because of the crazy rain/tornado weather that we got to
be a part of… Normally I would never wish to be stuck outside
in a huge, crazy storm, bigger than anything I have ever
seen before in person, but that Sunday was completely amazing.

Even though we were soaking wet and we were stuck in the stands
because the hallways were too full of people in the biggest clusterfuck I have
ever seen in my life, it was still a fantastic time! Before the game,
the weather was beautiful, no coat was even necessary! We had a great
time at the tail-gate, and then an even more adventurous crazy time
during the game of the lifetime. ALSO THE BEARS ENDED UP WINNING
SO THAT WAS GREAT TOO!!! wooo woooooo!!!

Cheers to the craziest game I have ever been to in my life.
And probably ever.

We started out in sunshine, drinking & eating away…..

Before leaving for the game, we wanted to make sure to stay prepared
for the crazy storm ahead, so my mom got us these fantastic
bright yellow Breaking Bad-esque rain suits. Me & Michael loved these!
{they seriously kept us dry throughout the entire monsoon!!!}

When we were TRYING to evacuate from our seats, we were
pretty hysterical from the beer, the laughing, the meer fact that
we were LITERALLY getting buckets of rain dumped on our
heads and the wind was so crazy I could have blown away…
We still kept smiles on our face and made the best of it!

Giving Thanks.

Yesterday I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family.
This year has gone by SO ridiculously fast, and through many ups and downs, I am grateful for everything that has come my way. Anything I thought I couldn’t get out of, I eventually found a way back on my feet. I’ve grown and learned so much through this year, and wouldn’t want it any other way.

As always, I am thankful for my loving family who is constantly there for me, my amazing friends, my fabulous home, and basically for God for giving me this wonderful life.

I am also thankful for these other {little} things in life that make me happy  like….

• the fact that I have a job!!!! {and that amazing African Cats wallpaper I have!!!!}

Why I’m Smiling Today

Because of this guy — >
soapes
Since he works midnight’s, he gets home in the morning and we get to hang out and be silly and crazy together until I leave for work (which in this case wasn’t until 10:30am because I’m on the late shift today working until 7!)
He makes me smile so big he really, really does.
Most of the time I hate work, so I look forward to getting to spend time with my best friend, my roomie, my babes, my Michael, who makes me smile sooooo big & who I have the absolute best times with, sometimes even if we’re just lounging around doing nothing at all.
Sometimes we just sing songs together obnoxiously & literally find ourselves laughing with tears in our eyes, because we’re just weird like that.
He’s the bestest. ❤

Also, I really want me some sushi for dinner. It’s only 1pm right now, but I am already looking forward to being home tonight around 7:30 and maxin on some delicious rolls from South Kawa. Just thinking about sushi makes me so happy. I think know I have an addiction.
I shouldn’t be eating anything but salad for the next couple of weeks after the ridiculous amount of chicken I consumed yesterday from Pollo Express. It was the best chicken that I have ever had in my life– plus, it was grilled!! And I don’t really even like chicken that much, so I was amazed at how tasty it really was. But that’s a story for another day!

FRIDAY.
BABES.
SUSHI.
FREE WEEKEND OF ORGANIZING COMING MY WAY!!!!!

Just have to get through the day of work…. 7pm can’t come faster!
