My kind of Town....part 2

Hi Dear Readers! How are you doing? I hope all is well and that today is a great one for you. Here's some more fun from my trip. Enjoy!

Me and my Sister-friend Saunjae. She works at the most delightful candy store below

Mmmmmm Chocolate!!!

Isn't it delightful? It's like Willy Wonka for Grown ups (winks and giggles)

This is the Foutain of a church that I would pass by daily on my way to work. I love the craftsmanship (the adorable little girl playing there while I took the shot was a bonus)

This is the front garden of the same church. Isn't this tree Breathtaking? SO inspirational

Flirty and Fab!

A crowd gathers to watch to Tin man dance (wonder if he does JAZZ hands, tee hee!)

Enough time for one more Glamour shot before I leave. I loved the staircase at the hotel, so Old Hollywood (I'm ready for my close up Mr. DeMille, Tee hee)

My OWN City of Lights.....It's not Paris, but as you can see, it's easy to fall in Love...

My kind of Town...Chicago is!!!!

Here I am Dear readers, writing about a vacation that I took.... in April! April? Yes, I know it's August, but this year just keeps getting by me for some reason (I honestly think time has gym shoes on, giggle). Well here is the AMAZING mommy vacation I spent in my hometown (Chicago) I had not been home for leisure in almost 4 years (gasp) Since I moved to Georgia. Needless to say, it was WAY overdue, and Super fun!!! Here's a few shots..

I ordered a king, but ended up with these beauties instead. Two beds that I don't have to make, yay!

The Lobby of the Gorgeous hotel I stayed in

ah, Michigan Ave....Home

A quick bite to eat, mmmmm SCRUM-DILLY-UMCIOUS!

Time to shop! (even if it is the window version, wink)

A little bit of CoCo...

And a little bit of Louis...


Escada!!! My DREAM store..

Forever 21, sounds like a nice idea

Enough time to catch up with the girls (That's me on the far end) We've been friends since High school, Love' em like sisters!
You're probably tired from all of that shopping! so let's stop at Bloomingdales for a little rest

 I don't know about you, but I think Bloomies is always a good place to stop. More eyecandy tomorrow(literally, giggle) Why not take time to plan your dream vacation. Where would you go? What would you wear? What restuarants would you try? Taking the time to plan is one more step closer....Just a thought, but a Lovely one.

Where have I been Lately?...and Exploration day

Well, I'm sure some of you may have noticed that I have been gone for quite some time (almost 2 months in the real world, but in blogland Forevah! giggle) I've just been living. It's life that has taken up all of my time. From soccer games to sickness, holidays and mini vacations, I've done it all. I've missed you ladies tremendously and I'm SO ready to share my adventures (especially my trip to chicago). I'll start with a few sweet pics from our family Exploration day at the Georgia Aquarium. It's great to be back! :)
It's a new day Ladies, make it a lovely one...

Outside of the Aquarium with the boys in the Distance

All Smiles and All ready for fun!

I'll end today's post with this big guy right here. More great pics of what we saw tomorrow!

Little Miss Sunshine Award!

I've just won my first blog award!When Victoria at slightly shabby left me the comment that she like my blog I was so excited! I don't consider myself to be very computer savvy, so it's an honor for me when people enjoy my blog. Thanks Victoria!

Here are the blogs that I chose and the rules:

Show and Tell Friday: Just Because

It's Show and Tell Friday at Cindy's and this week I'm showing the beautiful flowers my Hubby brought me "Just Because". Don't you love that?! After 8 1/2 years of marriage, I think it's EXTRA special for him to be this thoughtful.
I LOVE the colors, so Bright and cheerful!

I purchased this vase several years ago around Easter(my Favorite Holiday)
The colors match perfectly
