Happy Hour Friday

Hi and welcome to Happy Hour Friday. I know, I know, you don't have to tell me... I am a big slacker. It's been an entire week since I've posted. In fact, I'm surprised to see that I've only lost one follower considering the fact that I not only haven't posted, I also haven't read nor commented on any blogs this week.

In my defense, it's been a hectic week. If you read my last post, you know that I took my two chickadees to chicago for a few days. We had a fabulous time.
we saw the city
we saw some wildlife at Shedd Aquarium
we saw some dead stuff at the Field Museum
we walked -- a lot
we looked at feet
we marveled at 'the bean'
we made a new friend irl (Tori)
we did some touristy stuff - the billy goat tavern
we hung out with my cousin joey
(but now that he's an adult he prefers Joe -- too bad, he's still joey to me)
and we shopped a little lot.
can you believe I forgot to take a pic of the Magnificent Mile sign? Grr.


All in all, the girls and I (plus joey and his girlfriend meaghan) had a great weekend. I can't wait to go back and see tori again -- whether she wants me to or not. Chicago is just a very cool place to be.

Anyway, I was back for a day and then hopped a plane to Reno to see my mom
and her kitty, cj
So yes, I have been a very bad blogger buddy. hopefully you can forgive me. I tell ya what, why don't you belly on up to the bar and I'll buy the first round of drinks... happy friday.

Thanks for visiting today! Looks like you've been having a lot, lot, lot of fun! I can't believe you lost a follower because you've been living your life. Screw them!

My follower count goes up and down all the time. Whatever!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
Big hugs!!

Don't worry about the followers. Those that love you will easily forgive a little holiday!

Looks like you had a great time!

Hooray for the Billy Goat Tavern. I will spend the rest of the day running the SNL skit through my head. No Coke! Pepsi!

I love your blog. Your pictures are amazing. I'd love to go to America. Visit my blog if you have time, :) X

Matty said...

Sounds and looks like you all had a good time there. I've never been to Chicago, but some day yes. I'm in the same boat as you, since I'm back to work and 12 hour shifts now, I post about once a week myself. And I hardly have time for reading and commenting.

I am a bad girl. I left a link on your blog not knowing what I was signing up for. I have a policy against doing that.
