Windy City...here we come!

Because of the production schedule at the plant this summer, we weren't able to do our usually summer thing and we won't be able to go to the beach this summer. I'm super bummed about the beach because we had such a great time last year. It was one of the most laid back vacations that I've ever had. Maybe next year.

So, I mentioned back at Christmas that I wanted to take Miss K to the American Girl store in Chicago for her 3rd birthday. So, we decided to make a little vacation out of it. We are meeting some of favorite people in the world in Chicago. Us girls will head over to the AG store and the guys are going to do whatever guys do. I'm excited for Miss K to get to go to the AG store, but I'm even more excited about the day AFTER. The hubbys and the kiddos are headed to Wisconsin and Margie and I are going SHOPPING!!!! And if you know me at all, you know that shopping is one of my favorite hobbies. Heck, I have a degree in purchasing!

So, we are headed out tomorrow afternoon. We are going to drive to Indy and stay the night and then drive to Chicago the next day. We've got plans, but nothing that we have to "stick" to. We are just going to go and have some nice family fun. And this trip will also give me a chance to finally get my camera out and take some photos. I am embarassed to say that I've not taken a photo in about a month. How awful is that?

And dang it...I just realized that I've got a ton of stuff that I still need to do for Miss K's birthday party. I started planning this party MONTHS ago and then just stopped. Now, I'm going to be rushing to get everything done. At least I finally got the invitations mailed and that is the most important thing. That and the cake and the cake was ordered months ago when I booked the party. My biggest concern now is that I won't get the party favors done in time. I've not even started them! I should have never said I was going to make those crayon rolls!

Well, I need to get some laundry done and get K's stuff together for school tomorrow morning. I've got a lot to do tonight, so it's probably a good thing that I don't sleep much these days. I need to get off this computer and get some stuff done. Heck, I've not packed a single thing for anyone in this house! Blog ya later...WITH PHOTOS!

Heehee! I am excited too. We are booked at the Doubletree near the mall. I have never left the kids with B and spent the night away. This will be a new experience for me. Can't wait to see you!

Crayon rolls? You'll have to update on what that is-I don't remember if you mentioned it on the blog or not.
