Yesterday before the Blackhawks game I got to do some lovely shopping and have a delicious lunch at one of my all-time favorite restaurants! It was such a perfect day; I bought a few cute items (to be showcased in a post to come), had some seriously amazing food, and sat in the 8th row at the Chicago Blackhawks game! It was SUCH a blast, definitely a fabulous Sunday :]
SITTING 8TH ROW!!!!! :]
Rewind to the beginning of the day…. —– >>
I want a polish collection looking like this.
these books looked fun… and well needed by me.
this display looked awesome to me.
we found some Blackhawks banners!!
We went to RA Sushi for lunch!!! My favorite! Had to try the Blushing Geisha!
drinks were fabulous!!
the delicious Pineapple Cheese Wantons #nomnomnom
my favorite roll: Pacific Roll :] contains all of my favorite elements: tuna, jalapeno, cilantro, salsa, cucumber, just to name a few!
Viva Las Vegas Roll of course… one of their tastiest rolls!
Jordan & I at the Hawks game :]

Niklas’ interview…. my favorite of course!!!! GO #4!
loved being so close to the action.
the delicious dinner I had post-game from Freddie’s: Atomic Fries. Filled with favorites like bacon, sour cream, & jalapenos.
Last but not least, today my awesome kitty water fountain finally came in the mail that we ordered from Groupon!!! It is so fantastic, the kittys love it already!
and also this awesome picture I took of the Sears (Willis, whatever) Tower:
makes me smile & love Chicago
all love & smiles :]
Today is going to be an absolutely FABULOUS day.
My friend Jordan is coming in from out of town, and tonight we are sitting 8th row at the Blackhawks game!!! I have never been that close to my favorite players before! I could not be more excited! We’ll probably venture in the city during the day, grab some yummy lunch, people watch, all my favs :]
On a side note, I dyed my hurr back to red. Not my usual #56, Sangria, MEDIUM REDDISH BROWN, nope, not this time. Michael dared me to try #66, True Red, so I went for it.
In the sun, it’s RED. like RED RED RED fire engine. I absolutely love it! So glad I took the chance on a different color, because I’ve seriously used that same Sangria color for almost 4 years, couldn’t tell you how many boxes I go through of that stuff (plus I have to buy 2 boxes because my hair is always so long). I didn’t really think it looked that bright because indoors it’s actually pretty dark, not too much unlike my old color (although you could STILL tell the difference), so I compared it to Aria’s dark fur color and was like OH WOW. Definitely more red than dark.
And on one more random side note, my great uncle Ed (God rest his newly departed soul) looked just like Jim Halpert as a young boy. As we were going though all the photos of our Great Uncle Ed, I couldn’t help but notice the resemblance. He looks so cute :]
Look at the resemblance:
I stare at Jim Halpert (actor John Krasinski) almost everyday because Michael got me obsessed with The Office. We literally watch it everyday if there’s nothing else on, fall asleep to it, have it playing in the background, you get the picture. One of my all time favorite shows :] Which also made me start to watch Parks & Rec, which is another one I am now obsessed with, the most recent ep made me cry it was so adorable :] I heart Leslie Knope (not as much as I heart Ron Swanson tho) haha.
Off to get ready for my day!! :]
all love & smiles :]
ahhh her amazing green eyes enchant me!!! I will never get over how amazingly awesome my kitty Aria is. (crazy cat lady, i don’t curr)
Yesterday we had a packed day of fun including Mexico Steakhouse (nom nom nom) to going to the Bulls game (even though they lost, it was still a super fun time!). With a little bit of Aria and randomness mixed in, here was my fabulous day:
Tried making smoothies for breckie and of course Aria needed a try too…
she got SOAKING wet playing in the sink
aaaand she sleeps like a freak.
seriously like is she sleeping in a yoga pose or something?
in case anyone was wondering, THESE are the best kind of tortilla chips..not the hard corny kinds
and my most FAVORITE soup ever :] soooo salty and amazing and delicous
could we HAVE enough sauces and sides on the table?
I got this fun new app on my Mac and was just testing it out with some pics from Mexico :]
she was resisting the grooming
got to the Bulls game nice & early :] so much fun!
okay, these don’t look very appealing at all, BUT they smelled soooo amazing and tasted delicious, garlic parmesan fries nom nom nom
and the kittys all tranced me to sleep……… zzzzzz
all love & smiles :]
