My Everyday Life [Week 7]

Pema being a jerk (or a witch). He likes to pull this refrigerator cleaning thingie out from the side of the fridge and then walks away. I didn't find it amusing at 6:00 a.m. 
I streamlined my makeup application process by pulling out a few essential items and adding them to this new cosmetic organizer. Loving it so far!
A detour past Miller Park since the freeway was packed one morning.
Thanks to Gretchen Rubin's Happier podcast for recommending this one! I love it so far.
I tried arm knitting at a free local library class! It was extremely difficult for this non-crafty girl, but I still found it fun. I am going to watch some videos on YouTube that run through the directions at a slower pace than the class could.
Always hawk watching. 
My sweet mom hemmed our curtains this week and now they're the perfect length!
Craig came to my work for an event on Thursday night and finally found a button that makes this guy howl.
A sick day smoothie bowl that was so delicious!
Shiva being pretty in the sun.
 My birthday on our cart at Woodman's!
 I love Woodman's because I always find new products, like these, to try out. These are yummy!
 Craig thought this mannequin was real at first, so I had to pose with it and be silly.
Friday night Fish Fry at my parents' church! I don't eat fish, so I had grilled cheese and a baked potato. Craig enjoyed his fried fish though. My mom was volunteering, so it was fun to visit her and people watch.
Saturday morning sun before we took off in the car for Chicago. I need to clean that glass door because I keep forgetting that the child who lived at our house before us left his mark there.
On our way to Chi-town, we stopped in Highland Park to see Cameron's house in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

And in Winnetka to see the Home Alone house! I've been wanting to see the exterior of this home since I was 10.
At Lou Malnati's pizza. But I love all those things!
 Mmm...deep dish cheese pizza. Yum!
Craig outside the Biograph theater where John Dillinger was shot and killed. It was freezing cold out, but we braved the weather and walked down Lincoln Avenue to see this!
The main destination for our trip to Chicago on Saturday was a visit here! It was our first time.
 Me as an Illinois suffragette.
 I love when Pema wraps his tail around his feet.
My attempt at Valentine's Day berry pancakes this morning. We don't keep maple syrup in the house, so I improvised with maple flavored Brown Cow yogurt and it was perfect!
 Have a great week!


  1. Hmmm, I've seen the Mary Tyler Moore Show house and the Mork and Mindy house!

  2. The post is fantastic! I love it so much:)
    Have a nice day!
