Chi-Town!

Today I'm leaving for CHICAGO!!


Unfortunately not on a jet plane...on a bus. The Megabus. But I'm leaving nonetheless.

Matt and I are going to visit my sister and her husband and are FINALLY getting to see their new house! I am very, very excited!

Our weekend will include but not be limited to:
Lots and lots of board games
Yummy food
Perhaps some rocking out
And of course...Wii time

But most importantly...I get to meet this little guy!


They just got a puppy last weekend and I am thrilled to be the first one to get my hands on this little man!! Oh, he is just the cutest thing! He apparently loves giving kisses and is quite the ball of energy!

My allergy ridden husband is thrilled to say the least :)

Best part. My sister named him after my brother. Meet Mook! (I get a lot of questions about this when I mention Mook so maybe I should explain. My brother's given name is Michael but my dad only named him that so he could call him Mookie. It's after some baseball player I think? Hm. Not sure. But anyways...the name stuck and everyone...even his teachers in school called him Mook or Mookie. It's just our normal now and I forget that it's weird. And when I say weird, I clearly mean awesome.)

I'm looking forward to a fabulous weekend with family! I hope your weekend is super relaxing and I'll probably be back on Tuesday. Chicago vacation = Monday off work for Jenny! Sweet :)

Mook (the dog) is so cute! I'm the allergy ridden one, so when I finally succumb to Husby's pleas, it will be a hypo-allergenic breed.

Have fun in Chi-town!
