Chick says get to work!

I often think about how much fun it would be to take Chick to work with me. When I work from home, she mostly just snoozes on the couch all day (alternating between the pillows there and the blankets in her bed). For the most part she only occasionally wanders into the den to visit me. How much fun would it be to just look under your desk and see a Chick snoozin’ away?

Black and white Fridays

One of my most favorite photos. Ever. My grandma lounging at the pool. Black and white photos just make everything look so much more glamorous.

Marco? Polo!

Last weekend I headed to Chicago Animal Care and Control for what I thought was a meet and greet for a potential foster pup. She was a tiny chihuahua mix named Gracie. But by the time I had arrived she had already been transferred to another rescue (yay!).

So instead I hung out with this sweet pup in the photo above. His name is Polo and he was so lovely. When I first saw him he looked so, so sad in his cage. He is about six years old and an owner surrender, so probably pretty confused about why he was there. Once I took him outside, he was so happy and loved being in the fresh air. He’s available for adoption, if anyone is looking:)

A neighborhood tour (and maybe a free donut too)

On Sunday, Josh and I headed over to Wicker Park (the actual park in the ‘hood of the same name) for a friendly neighborhood tour with the hope of scoring a few free donuts from Stan’s. Wicker Park is one of my favorite neighborhoods and fortunately for us, we’re right on the border of it. We read about a free tour of the area given by a local history buff and Chicago resident. For free.

Since it was one of the only nice days we’ve had so far, everyone in the world seemed to be itching to get outside. The group was so large that I felt it was only right to snag one donut instead of two. We stuck around for most of the tour before branching off on our own to try The Chop Shop, which for someone who doesn’t eat meat regularly, enjoyed very much. The old homes in Wicker Park are so gorgeous and I had too much fun picking out the ones I’d love to live in.

Sad Badger

Basketball game (image)
Saturday night sure was heartbreaking for Wisconsin fans. I don’t always get into sports, but watching the men’s basketball team work so hard the entire game only to lose in the last few seconds was pretty brutal. I think someone else may taken the loss a bit harder:)
