Outfit of the Week

Is it just me or when it gets to be freeizing cold, fashion is the last thing on my mind. All I want is to bundle up in multiple pairs of yoga pants , a fluffy sweater and a warm blanket. It takes extreme effort to get out of my bundles of blankets in the morning and there is nothing I dread more than the walk and wait for the bus. Thankfully I have an epic sweater collection the challenge now is to find good ways to make the outfits stylish. Any one have any suggestions?

Culture and Bones

There are very few ways I love to spend a day than at the museum. Art museums, history museums, I even once tried to convince my family we should go to an RV museum. Some may say I'm obsessed. I say you sound like you're having a bad day, you should visit a museum to unwind. 
I've been anxious to check out the Field Museum since I got here but have been wanting to go with someone who would appreciate it as much as me but, more importantly, would be totally cool with me geeking and spending hours upon hours wandering around. 







 First stop was Sue. A very large but lovely lady.





 Our favorite part was the trivia games. We would get super competitive, especially over the questions that we really should know but actually had no idea.












 The voodoo exhibit sort of freaked me out so we went to the Machine Inside. I'm sure it is amazing but I was so distracted by all of the children running around and shoving you, we ended up going through pretty quickly just to get away from running noses and tantrums.







 The Field Museum is such a fun way to spend the day. Be sure to say hi to Sue for me.

 Oh, and by the way, why do museums have so many old dinosaur bones? Because they can't find any new ones!

Grand Lux Cafe

Here's a confession: I am obsessed with Yelp. I have to check it for every restaurant I go to and it's the first place I go to when I'm wandering around hungry. If a restaurant has a bad yelp review, I won't go. One that always pops up is the Grand Lux Cafe on Michigan Avenue. All the reviews wrote about "dinner with a view" and, honestly, who can say no to that? I definitely can't. 

Unfortunately, the lighting in there is not the greatest. Most of my snaps aren't even worth posting but I wanted to give you a little look. 







If you get the option, try to sit in the circular room up front. The walls and ceiling are beautiful and the whole front is windows overlooking Michigan Avenue. It's a very fun place and, most importantly, Yelp approved.
