Day 2 in Chicago was filled with more wandering, eating, drinking (not all booze, by the way), and walking. The weather was perfect; there wasn’t a single cloud in the sky, the humidity was low, and the temperature was just perfect. Ben and I started our day off with breakfast at a local restaurant, before […]Read more "Attack Of The 26 Foot Woman"
Yesterday I continued my quest to travel 12 times in 12 months. I’ve successfully passed the half-way point; that is, I’ve been on 7 trips so far this year. For those who may have forgotten, the list includes Hawaii, New York, Ottawa, Calgary, Ottawa, Halifax & Wolfville, and now Chicago.

I stumbled on this video (below) about a week or so ago (via The Daily What), meant to blog about it, but then completely forgot. Perhaps the epicness of the video caused some sort of short-term memory loss. Or maybe it simply blew my mind. Anywho, after viewing it I knew exactly what I had […]Read more "Mom & Dad, You Might Not Want To See This"
Once upon a time, there was a most awesome blog-related contest for So Nice Creamer on one Dr. Beth’s blog Not To Be Trusted With Knives. And guess what folks? I won. W00t! What did I win? Only a voucher for So Nice Creamer. Double W00t! I received notification last night, and I’m sure that […]Read more "Non-Mom Related Confirmation That I Am A Winner"
