To safely carry my camera while biking I thought my "lumbar pack" (not a fanny pack) would be perfect. I'm pointing to the logo so people won't get it confused.
It takes two to load the record player/radio into the Euro Van. Thank goodness there was three of us so I could capture the moment with my camera that I toted along in my "lumbar pack".

We then hopped on the "L" to go downtown to shop some of our favorite stores. Here, here and here. We also had to eat lunch at our most favorite burrito place. MMMMM! We ventured the city all afternoon and evening. Another great friend of mine from school met up with us and amazingly put up with us shopping at all our stores. I got these great yellow and gold sunglasses at H and M that Jonathan is modeling for us. It's the season for HUGE sunglasses from the 70's.
By the time we got home from walking all over creation we were hungry for supper and pretty tired. Out to dinner we went, to a little Italian place that was oh so yummy. I had chicken with a white wine sauce. I wished I had room for dessert but was entirely way to full to fit anything else in my stomach. After dinner we tried to go out and have some more fun but was just to tired and hot to stand around and try to socialize more.Sunday morning we met up with another good friend of mine for breakfast. I was fascinated by all the artwork and decor at the little breakfast restaurant. I wanted to take lots and lots of pictures but was afraid of getting frowned at and I had a gentleman sitting only a foot away from me at the booth and I didn't want to irritate him. So I only have a few photos from breakfast and I am I keeping them a secret for a little something I am working on. This picture Matt took for me.
The time I spent in Chicago was only a short two days that went buy so quickly. We did so many things am hoping to make another longer trip later at the end of summer.

The two concerts I attend were fantastic! I saw Tapes n Tapes on Friday night at the Vaudeville Mews. Harlem Shakes opened for them and it was a great old evening of listening to great music and knitting. I am currently working on a present for a friend that is at least a month late. Woops, sorry.
I guess I was being creative but I didn't even think of it. No cool pictures because I want to keep my item a secret. After I am finished I will post pics.
Last night I went to see my favorite local band The Envy Corps play with their fellow record label band The Killers. Man, it was hot and miserable. I was so excited to see TEC play for a sold out crowd on a big stage with all the fancy lighting. I think they rocked out more that I have ever seen them. By far though I much rather go to the Mews and enjoy a little show any day over seeing someone big like the Killers.
So there you go you guys. Nothing to new and exciting.
I am headed to Chicago for the weekend so I hope to have lots of inspiring pictures and crafts to show you all.

This morning on MSN an article caught my attention "Is a Messier Desk Better?". I would say YES, but who am I to say so. Maybe this article can help rationalize all of our cluttered desks out there.

Have a great morning!

I have been to the area before and actually went on a great field trip for my History of Design Three class to Pagoda Red. It is a great Asian antique shop that was three stories of amazing things. I made my very first Asian antique purchase there. It is a small carved piece of wood that has a ditch carved out of it and is stained a dark mahogany color. I use it as my business card holder. I adore it. I have also eaten at Cafe De Luca and would recommend it to anymore passing by. I would enjoy eating at the Forest Park location whenever my friends and I had a chance. We could sit there for hours nibbling on our food, sipping wine and having great conversations. What great memories! I miss that place, Chicago.
