Back In Chicagoland...

The three of us drove up to Sudbury on a Friday. On Tuesday, we made the 12.5 hour drive back to Chicago. Let me tell you, there's nothing like discovering you have a big zit on the back of your neck at the beginning of a 12.5 hour drive - it really makes the time fly by.

Man, I miss puberty!

The day after arriving back in Chicago, Mrs. TBF joined me. She had been on a business trip in NYC, and she was able to take a couple of vacation days (although she was on the phone with work for a good chunk of them) and come out to Chicago for the weekend. She snapped this photo of me (after she had been on the phone with the home office for 30 minutes) standing in front of Bed Bath and Beyond leaning against my rented Impala.**

I LOVE B-Bab (as I call it), and I LOVE driving an Impala. Let me tell you... when we win the big lotto, NO Rolls Royce for me. NO sir! I'm buying an Impala. Maybe I'll just buy a new one every month so I always have that new car smell.

After B-Bab, it was Mrs. TBF's turn. Ugh... shoe shopping at Nordstrom.

LORD, TAKE ME NOW!

I guess you have to take the good with the bad.

**For the record: I washed the shirt between wearing it in Sudbury and wearing it in Chicago.

Looks like you are quite the shopper to me.. At least it looks like you sit around and don't complain much...

You mean to tell me they didn't have the purple high heels in your size? Where's the world coming to!
