My Kind of Town

I just got back from a week away. We visited family and friends in Chicago, and made a stop along the way at the Wisconsin Dells.

Side note: while I was thrilled to see my kids having such a blast (and they had a serious blast!), the Dells grosses me out. Don’t get me wrong, the accommodations are nice. But the thought of all that water dripping off scuzzy bodies had me on edge the entire time. Anyone else ever feel that way at water parks?

But it was a really lovely trip, with trips into the city and lots of hours spent in the pool at Papa and Grammy’s house. I got to catch up with friends at brunch in Wicker Park, and took in a ballgame at US Cellular (sadly, the White Sox lost). We spent time with extended family we rarely see, and got to hang out with two sets of grandparents. I sported crazy vacation hair the entire time, and wore a swim suit more than anything else. Plus, we only had one bout of carsickness the entire trip! All in all, our trip was a success.

Are you traveling anywhere fun this summer?

    Happy Thanksgiving from Wild Ruffle
  • On the Eve of Thanksgiving this year, I’m feeling lots of love and gratitude toward my family, friends and you {Wild Ruffle Readers}! My life has been crazy chaos lately.  Starting way back last summer, this fall, and even up through last weekend. I’ve been running like my head’s cut off. Which you have so graciously read… [Continue Reading]

    Feeling Thankful
  • My husband recently surprised me by saying he had purchased tickets to a Garth Brooks concert. Not growing up a country music fan, I wondered if I would know any of the songs, and whether I’d really enjoy myself at the show. I gotta say – I truly did have fun. Though I didn’t necessarily… [Continue Reading]

    Wisdom From Garth
  • I am generally a fairly happy go lucky kind of girl. I don’t worry about much, and I have a tendency to think that everything will turn out ok in the end. But opening a storefront… it’s a lot of work. It’s pretty darn stressful. I knew it would be. And I readily signed up… [Continue Reading]

    Be Of Good Cheer
  • Lordy Lordy guess who’s…. just kidding. I’m not going to be that dorky! But you get the hint. I’m turning 40 tomorrow!  AAhhh! I don’t mind turning 40. I just don’t like the wrinkles, moodiness and body changes that comes with it. *sigh In honor of my 40th birthday I’m letting you in on 40 random… [Continue Reading]

  1. We visited Wisconsin Dells a little over a year ago for the first time. I felt the exact same way and still do about all waterparks. Great pics and sounds like you had a fun filled vacation!

  2. Sometimes for me it isn’t the water itself but the locker/bathroom/changing room facilities at water parks, they can be kind of scuzzy feeling!

    Looks like you had a fun trip!

  3. yeah for chicago! we are in the suburbs and actually rarely go downtown. I’d feel the same way about the dells! glad you guys had a good time!

  4. I’d call only one episode of carsickness a success, for us it would be anyway! Looks like a really fun time. I too get the heebie jeebies at places like that. I don’t let my kids into restaurant play areas because our local one had lice! Ew!!!!! Here’s to a great week!!
