On Summer Bucket Lists...

If Summer ever decides to stay in Chicago there are a lot of things I'd love to do!

{1.} SUP - Stand Up Paddleboarding & SUP Yoga!
{2.}   Hiking at Starved Rock 
{3.} Camping! I went camping once as a kid but I have to get myself prepped for Symbiosis in September and 5 days of car camping! 
 {4.} Have a BBQ - at home or on the beach 
{5.} Make it to a Full Moon Fire Jam
{6.} Movies in the park at Millenium 
{7.} Spend a day at the beach with my bestie 
{8.} Meet some new friends
{9.} Workout outside as much as possible 
{10.} Spend a day hunting down food trucks and being a tourist 
{11.}  Go see my friend in Utah (this one might be hard but I hope to make it happen)

I am already setting up the dates for 1-3 and going to the movies in the park tonight! What is on your list??

On beautiful days...

We have been getting some sporadically beautiful days here in Chicago and I am a happy camper! Yesterday was one of those days where it was just right so I tried to take advantage and get outdoors as much as I can. Since I am out half day for summer school its nice to get out and find things to do!

Yesterday I took full advantage and went for a run walk(technically both) in the park and I was so hyped up I decided to start using the benches for exercise. It was great!

Then I rounded up some friends and went to Rosemont for Country in the Park. Its a free concert series in the park on Tuesdays. Rosemont is a lot of fun because its a stretch of bars, theater, bowling, indoor skydiving and an outlet mall pretty much around this little park. The restaurants/bars set up booths and have cheap drink deals and some food on offer as well...they also have all their patios set up so you can listen from the restaurant too. 

It was a great time and a great way to spend a Tuesday night!! Come back tomorrow so you can read about some of my successes meeting new people in my city!

On Life Lately....

Wow...how did last week just fly by? Here we are on Monday and I have completely neglected my blog and reading all my faves! BUT this week will be better.

So to sum it all up I have been busy busy busy!

I love Ribfest! I was so excited for it and really I do need to take more pictures but I might have been too busy stuffing my face. 

2. Gypsy Kings concert at Ravinia!
I love going to Ravinia! We got there a few hours early with some wine and chairs and snacks and just hung out. Once they came on it was a dance party on the lawn!

I absolutely love this sangria!! 

3.  The Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup Championship Rally! 
Let me just tell you getting tickets for this was not easy, they were free but that doesn't mean you can get  your hands on them! 


4. Fathers Day!
I got to spend the day with my awesome dad! We bbq'd, hung out in the yard, made smores, and watched a movie. Overall...a perfect day!

So that is my life lately!!

On Stanley Cup Champs!

My weekend kind of extended into Monday! Guess what?

The Blackhawks won!! 

It was crazy last night at the bar watching! So much fun but it rained all day, flooding everywhere, people filling the streets. It was mayhem. 

At Pitchfork watching the game! 

 It was crazy. I have more to share about the weekend but I'll do that tomorrow!

On Fridays!!

Soo I am feeling much better than I was yesterday, which is a  big plus! It's Friday!!

I'm hoping the weather cooperates this weekend as I'm running the Warrior Dash on Sunday with my coworker & sister and I need it not to be so horribly mushy and rainy! The only obstacle that has me stressing??

This one kicked my ass last time! It was so muddy that I just kept slipping trying to put my feet up and once I got to the top and got over I slipped and hit my arm ridiculously hard...so that being said. I'm scared of it now.

Also...in preparation for this event...Ribfest! 


 and of course...coming up on hopefully the 2nd to last game for the Stanley Cup!

Its going to be a good weekend!

On Thursdays...

I grumble...

I'm exhausted.

If I drank coffee now would be a good time for a giant GIANT cup of it.

Also...damn you Chicago weather. 

Yesterday....90 today....64 

and since I did nothing but complain today I will leave you with some man candy...

Oh what a weekend!

Let me just tell you all my weekend started Thursday and was going going going until I collapsed into a ball of mush on the couch yesterday! I had a seriously great birthday weekend and felt soo very special!

Just a heads up this post is very picture heavy!!  

I got wonderful flowers from the boyfriend and my coworkers! 

Thursday (actual birthday) I invited a couple friends out to dinner...it went from 6 people to 12 and turned into a party! It was such a fun night just having dinner/drinks at Uncle Julio's and talking to some of my fave people!

Friday  I, of course, didn't get many pics but I went for drinks with my coworkers to celebrate my bday and the end of the school year! Then I hung out with my friends who are in town drank in the apartment and caught up!  

Saturday night I had invited everyone to come on a booze cruise and then an after party at Emporium Arcade Bar it was unfortunately pretty chilly but we made the best of it and danced our asses off and watched some great fireworks! 

and Sunday....I woke up...rolled over...ate breakfast...rolled back over...ate lunch....rolled over again and then got up and did groceries and meal prepped for the week. All while hanging out with my two friends who leave me today. #sosad

I'd say it was a damn good weekend!
