Black and white Fridays

Last week I posted an old photo of my gram, and this week I have another. This time with my grandpa on their wedding day. I can’t help but think how rad it would have been there on that day (the fact that I didn’t yet exist notwithstanding).

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.

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:)

Final Four

Yesterday night the Badgers played Arizona, and guess what? They won! Which means they’re on to the Final Four and I’m in for watching more basketball. Because March Madness just never ends. But I must admit, the game was exciting, the Badgers played hard and it was fun to watch. Not to mention this sweet story about Bo Ryan, the Badger coach, and his dad. Chick may have grumbled a bit with all the yelling Josh did, but it wasn’t anything a treat or two couldn’t fix:)

Chihuahua party

On Sunday, Josh and I took Chick to her very own birthday party at Chicago Party Animals. For other dog lovers out there, this is totally normal I swear:)

Chick is a member of Perry Dog’s Downtown Chicago Chihuahua MeetUp, where they regularly host puppy play dates. Usually Chick isn’t the most social of dogs, but she had a blast this time. She spent the better part of an hour scavenging and making new friends while we stood by, thoroughly amused. It’s so important to socialize your dog and this was the perfect opportunity – fun for us and fun for Chick since it was all small dogs and a low-key atmosphere. The best part though was that it was also a benefit for the Almost Home Foundation (Chick brought a bag of treats to share, of course).

Until next time!

To Milwaukee and back

Last Saturday Josh and I trekked up to Milwaukee for the Bucks game. The Bucks aren’t so hot right now (last place, oy), but the drive up to Wisconsin is short and the tickets are the right price. Milwaukee may be close, but it couldn’t be more different from Chicago. As the state’s biggest city it pales in comparison to Chicago. After eating dinner at Water Street Brewery we were just a quick walk to the Bradley Center, where they were selling Girl Scout cookies and selling Bucks-inspired dog apparel, so I was sold:)

Nothing like a few grainy iPhone photos to start your Monday.
