Food and wrastlin'

Brunch with Kelly and Gideon! And Sado sorta, since he was our waiter. I had the cuban sandwich and it was sooooooo gooooood! Gideon kept us entertained and so did a bee that never left us alone, which AJ later killed. My hero! We walked to Ellipsis for more coffee and back to his apt. I was lazy the rest of the day and then watched some WWE at his friend's place. Man, I really love it. I get it guys, it's so theatrical and just super fun.

Midwest is best

Long run this morning which I had to sit and wait for because a huge thunderstorm hit from about 7-10. I was feeling very blah and heavy but I managed to do about 8. Went home to be lazy and then AJ and I went to Uncommon Ground up in Rogers Park to see Midwest play! Although I love that place and the food, we spent $90 for the 2 of us. I mean, 2 appetizers and 4 drinks? Come on. C'est la vie.

Stitched and needs to be fixed

Feeling kinda bleh the last few days. Run down and a little achy. I was going to call in sick to work but pushed through and made it til 3ish. Visited AJ at work and decided to do nothing the rest of the night since I have to run in the morning! I should be at about 18 miles in my training but that's not gonna happen. I'll aim for 10 :) I also ordered some clothes from Stitch Fix. I loved almost everything they sent! Sadly, this maxi dress that fit me great is $88 and everything else was too pricey as well. So I sent it all back. Maybe next time some of the items will be cheaper....?

Another year

Geez, another humid day. It's like a sauna out here. We had our office summer party today and of course we were only supposed to stay on the deck. But no thanks. We slowly migrated inside where the AC was blasting and got drunk there. I think most people went on to another bar after, and another, and so on. But I had to run home to change and meet up with Tami for more drinks. She's been gone a year! Crazy. She's back and has her masters now and is ready to teach. It's insane to think about what happened in a year. She got a degree, I got a new job, a boyfriend, and then lost that job and found an even better one. The older I get, the shorter the years get.

Hump dayyyyy!

Another hot one today. This feels like the longest summer ever, in the best way. I'm not sure why. Maybe because I have someone to do stuff with or because I had a month where I didn't have to work. Who knows. But I'll take it! AJ and I met up at Rogers Park Social to see Laughs in the Lounge with some hilarious stand ups. The place is tiny and a little pricey but very cozy and inviting. The funniest part was that there are speakers outside on the street so passers-by could hear the comedians and would stop to listen and laugh. Good times.

Sketchtest tonight! A light house, per usual during the summer, but a fun audience fo sho. Nothing big to report today!

Can't complain

Our new receptionist starts today, which I'm so excited about! Not only because she just the best but because it will take a huge load off of me. Lots of the people I support were out of the office today so that made things easier. I do love it here but I'm slowly becoming a little more relaxed. I've messed up a few small things, putting the wrong time on an itinerary or whatever. I'm used to be yelled at for it but that doesn't really happen here. But after walking on eggshells with bosses in the past, it's hard to not get anxious. But I'm slowly learning how! And AJ is back and I finally got to see him tonight after a week! A nice homecoming :)

Amazing day

A lazy morning since I did my long run yesterday, wooooo!! Laid around and then did a ton of shopping but only found a work out shirt and some earrings. Met up with Mary Beth for coffee and then did a little more shopping - no luck. Home for beer and some junk food. Today is great, except I want my guy to come home!!!

Day off!! Instead of doing my long run on Saturday like always, I decided to do it this morning since it wouldn't be crowded on the lakeshore path. And it wasn't! I did about 12 miles, from home to Soldier Field and back and I felt pretty great for the first time in a while. And I beat the rain by about 10 minutes. Then I met Annie at Tweet for brunch for some yummy biscuits and gravy and then back home to be lazy and watch the Olympics. Hellz yeah.

Almost the weekend

Last day before a 3 day weekend! Spent all dayyyy on the project I'm doing at work and it made the day go by super fast. Made a quick trip to the gym and then came back home to watch some of the olympics and a terrible rom-com on lifetime. I think that's a great way to end the work week.

Big project at work right now. Basically, I have to put all the live events our company has scheduled for the rest of the year, for all of our clients, into a calendar. It's a bit tedious but my boss and a lot of other employees are out of town and I've caught up with a lot of other work. Our big conference room with the huge TV has the olympics on so I used the room to do some work. "Some" work.

Busy busy busy at work again. Crowded commute and then Sketchtest tonight. There were only 3 of us there but we all did some bits. So glad the show is still going even though the turnout is like a roller coaster. So if you read this blog and you're a performer, lemme know if you want to try out stuff - storytelling, stand up, sketch, solo sketch, whatevsies. Yay! (On a sad note, I walked past Mullen's which has been closed for weeks/months now. so depressing now that iO and all the bars we frequented are gone)

S is for shopping

Drove back to Chicago early early early this morning. Grabbed breakfast at McDonald's because I mean, where else do you grab breakfast on the road (and what else is open?) AJ dropped me off and I slept for over an hour since I didn't get enough sleep. He went on to pick up his roomie and drove all day and night to Denver for like 13 hours! Omg! But I got to go shopping with Kelly and Gideon. I found a tank top and that's about it. But I got to see this cute face. Now I have a whole boyfriendless week to stay busy. Wish me luck!

A long one

Definitely did not get enough sleep last night, which made me Cranky McGee most of today. We got up early to meet AJ's family for breakfast and grab a rental car for us to drive back to Chicago and for AJ to continue driving all the way to Utah (he's taking a week long road trip with his roomie, so lucky!) We ran some errands and then walked over to the beach from our Airbnb, which was about 5 feet in width, it was weird. And the rest of the length of the beach was private. So we snagged a tiny spot and napped for a bit in the sun. Then on to his friend Darcy's wedding, very low key and fun. The guests gathered around the couple in a circle in the park and then we went to a nearby event center for the reception. I was mustering up all the energy I could and had a great time but was ready for bed by 6pm. (PS - we found my new favorite beer at the store! New Holland's Lost Dune. So yummy, blueberry-ish flavor. It's seasonal and from Michigan so not as easy to find in Chicago)
