Ohhh mahhhh gahhhh, brunch at Big Jones! I had the chicken and waffles obviously. I was glad Easter brunch wasn't super crazy. Seemed like most people went out of town since the city was sort of a ghost town around my neighborhood. We went to a bbq at a friends place and then I came home to watch The Leftovers, Girls and Veep. Yay! (Finale of Girls was meh like the show in general)

Slept in a bit and AJ didn't have to work until tonight so we walked over to Loyola Beach. 80 degrees today!! Then I went home to pack and tried to get some more outside time before seeing Sierra's sketch show at the Playground. Watched SNL and fell asleep by 11:30. Saturday!!

Almost Fridayyyy!!! I haven't seen AJ all week because of his rehearsals for a play so I can't wait to see him tomorrow! Another day at work, this week has been stressful for several reasons. I cancelled a trip home because it was just too pricey annnnd my family is being weird. They beg for me to visit and then act like they don't want me when I finally plan on visiting. Anywho, I'm very excited for tomorrow - a half day for the Easter weekend! Let's do dis.

Now the moon is trying to hide behind the clouds. I walked to the gym after work today. It got really cold again!! Not REALLY cold but pretty chilly after having some 60 degree days. Got some work done at a coffee shop and came home for new episodes of Real Housewives of NYC. Unfortunately, AJ has had rehearsal almost every night so I haven't seen him since Sunday! I misssss him!!! Friday can't come soon enough!

Moon sighting toniht from my walk home from the gym. I'm going to miss this neighborhood. I can go to the gym and grab coffee and pass by Walgreens and maybe grab dinner on my way home. I'm sure my new hood will be just as great but I've gotten so used to this one :(

Sunday is all about food!!!! Brunch at Kitsch'n and then I went home to pack up a lot of my shit and then dinner at Rogue Fusion, a place AJ found near his apt. Aaaaah!! So amazing! We had crab meat beignets to start and then I just got 2 tacos while he had a cuban sandwich. And it's BYOB. Can't say enough good things about this place. The food is delish!

Morning run on this beautiful day! Stopped at Fullerton to take some pics. I don't think I've mentioned this but I'm moving north to Andersonville in a few weeks and I will be close to the running path but I will miss these amazing views. Can't find these north of Belmont. I mean, not as good. But I'm excited for a new neighborhood and Andersonville is adorable and full of great restaurants and stores!

Ventured to the other side of the river for lunch in the Illinois Center. There is constant construction around my office and apparently at the IL center too. But I highly recommend wandering around the those buildings at the southeast corner of Michigan and Wacker. It's such a cool hidden area where you can hide.

It's mah birthday!! 38 and feelin good. Grabbed a donut only to get to work to find my co-worker Sierra had given me a ton of sugary treats. Hey, I'll take it!! AJ surprised me by buying me a bike! He actually hasn't gotten it yet, we're waiting til we find a good one at this used bike place. Then we went to dinner and home to watch a movie. Perfect day!! (We also spotted some pretty interesting possible bday gifts on the way home, hahahahaha)

Ran the shuffle again today! I think this might be my 8th year-ish. I thought I might be late to get in my corral but arrived just on time and avoiding the long waiting time and listening to people talk about dumb stuff or watching groups of women with tons of makeup on, blehhhhh. Had a good run. My time was about 48 so that's my average time of a 9:30ish mile. And then the sun came out after the race and made for some beautiful weather!

Some fun time with Gideon and Kelly! Stayed at AJ's last night and then made my way down to Kelly's place to hang with her and Gideon (who apparently is very attached to this pot) and walk around the neighborhood. And also passed by this awesome house in Rogers Park!

I got to see Messing With a Friend tonight with Scott Adsit and Kevin Dorff! It feels like forever since I've seen an improv show not at the Playground. It's hard when I'm taking pictures because I feel like I can't focus on the show like I want to. Buuuuut, it's always great to see a show for free. Can't say no that.

A much needed drink tonight with my lady Alex. I had a somewhat disappointing review at work. I always have the same string of emotions (confusion, then disappointment in myself, then anger, then wanting to do better). So we'll see what happens, I'm sure it'll be fine. And Alex is going to France for a month and then moving to Virginia! I'm excited for her but she's my oldest female friend here and it'll be sad to see her go. She's also been kind of like a therapist to me too. I see her as the Dalai Lama in a 34-year-old woman's body. I will miss you lady!!!

This One Woman! I went back to Hopleaf again tonight for Kyna and Cynthia's show. This month was Joan Jett! I did some storytelling about my pursuit, as a kid and teenager and college student, to be cool. I never succeeded....I don't think. But I learned my lesson. Our friends Brooke and Mike happened to be in town so they came by and watched! Then we went to Kopi for a late night snack :)

AJ and I grabbed some donuts this morning and then he headed to rehearsal while I went up to Evanston to hang with Shawn. It's funny how the trek up there gets shorter and shorter the longer I live here. I used to think Andersonville was way too far north! Then I went home for a nap and met up with AJ and some friends for dinner at Hopleaf. If you go there for dinner, get the CB&J sandwich! Cashew butter and jam. It also has melted cheese and comes with mac and cheese and chips. It's so good!!! I mean, all the food there is amazing so you can't go wrong :)
