Happy Sunday everyone! It was a “balmy” 40 degrees in Chicago this weekend, but before I could enjoy it that much, we’re going back into the 20s this week. Figures.
Anyhow, the weekends are usually pretty productive for me. I dedicate Saturday to running errands that I don’t get to during the week and usually, I get around the city pretty well, but the no car thing can slow me down.
That is until this weekend when I had out-of-town company and access to a car. We were unstoppable in making trips around the city. I even was diligent in logging into Foursquare to track everything. And here’s everywhere we went:
I was super tired at the end of it. And I was reminded that sensible shoes are necessary for this much walking. That’s right, everything from Nordstrom to Nordstrom was all walking. Normally, I will pick my footwear based on the amount of stops and walking I will have to do, but I was a little aspirational this time and wore my flat riding boots. Which are lovely but aren’t really made for this level of activity.
The lessons I learned: invest in Dr. Scholl’s insoles for the boots and/or wear the Uggs. Ouch.
And when I got home, I saw a passive aggressive note in the elevator. Okay maybe it’s not traditional passive aggressive but it definitely got my attention:
And the response says:
“Ellen it’s too bad there are people who steal. That being said, I would not leave my detergent in that room unattended for that reason. I hope you at least learned a lesson.”
I feel bad for Ellen, but sadly, I’ve had it happen to me too and learned my lesson that way.
How was everyone else’s weekend? Was it full of football, Grammy’s or SAG awards?
I have to say, the SAG fashion was much better than the Globes. By like, a lot. Most improved? Tina Fey and Lea Michele from Glee. LOVED both of those dresses.
I couldn’t even pick a best dressed because I loved so many of the outfits!
