There's this "joke" in Chicago. Wanna hear it? OK, here goes...
Q: What are the three seasons in Chicago?
A: Winter, Summer, and Construction.
Hahahahahaha, WAIT, it's not a joke when it's true. Seriously, I love this city (even though we live far out in the boring 'burbs), but PLEASE FINISH THE CONSTRUCTION!!!!
I don't know if I can take much more of this. I get it, you want the city to look nice for the Olympics that we might host in 7, count 'em, 7 years, and the construction projects create jobs. Well then how come I don't see people working on these job sites. Are orange cones and blinking horses a new form of decoration? I must have missed that issue of Domino.
With construction season in full bloom, I've decided to do some construction around
Happy Wife...Happy Life! Hopefully you'll see some exciting changes in the coming posts.
Have a Lovely weekend!

I live with a monster

It's true. I live with and am married to a monster. Specifically, Cookie Monster! Mr. Happy loves cookies. Not candy, not cake, not ice cream...but cookies. He's kind of a cookie connoisseur. He knows which brands have the best chocolate chips, and fudge stripes, and creme centers. Unfortunately, he did not marry a baker. (Although I'd give it a shot if I stayed at home) So I say "God Bless Break and Bake cookies." My house now smells like I've been baking all day. It's wonderful.

I'm back!!!

So, I didn't actually go anywhere, but I'm back here in Blogmerica. I have a tendency to come up with amazing ideas, to start a project, and then to leave it unfinished. Kinda like this blog??? I am making an effort to finally stick with this project. I can't guarantee I will post everyday, although it is my long term goal. I am declaring my current goal is to publish at least 3 times per week.

I am soooooo excited that I have 6 followers right now. I had 7 last week but somebody dropped me, whatever. I don't want to disappoint, and I want to keep you entertained. I am still trying to figure out where I want this blog to go. I definitely don't want to copy somebody else, and I don't want it to turn into my diary (well kind of).

This week, I will also be looking for ways to spice up my page.

Random thought of the day...I <3 french manicures, especially when I do them myself and they turn out gorgeous!
