Hey hey party people! I’ve had an wonderful and eventful day so far! Shane and I drove over to Chicago to stay with my friend Destiny to visit and for the race tomorrow.
Before we got to Destiny’s, Shane said I could stop at Lululemon!! Woo hooo!
I got a tank and a long sleeved running top for the big race tomorrow, and better yet – both were on sale! Holla
After the mini lulu spree, we booked it over to the packet pick up. I was worried, because they had a record amount of people sign up for the races this year, and only the first 2,000 people to pick up their packets got a goody bag and a shirt. The packet pick up was open all week, so I had no idea if there’d still be any left. And we all know how much I like my race T-shirts!
I was one of the first 2,000, hooray! Cute shirt, eh?
After settling into the guest room at Destiny’s, we had a blast just kicking it in her cute living room talking it up. Look how cute her weiner dog, Pocket it!
Awww:~)~ ! She’s gonna be Elvis for Halloween, and she was modeling her costume for us.
A while later, we all decided we were becoming hungry beasts, and headed downtown for lunch:
There were tons of cute restaurants, but we finally decided on Shanahan’s, a Creale restaurant:
We were all super thirsty too, so we had some bloody mary’s to quench our thirst;)
To start out with, I had some tomato bisque soup, which was spicy and DELISH!
Then for my main dish, I had the vegetable jumbalaya, which was fabulous as well! Full of crisp, yummy bell peppers:
After lunch, you had to roll us out of there. Some how, we found some room for some delectable chocolates and this cute tiny little chocolate shop next door:
And Shane found some gelato, which he let me share:
A couple hours of mindless TV, resting, and chit chat later, Destiny took me to my first Trader Joe’s ever!!
It was all I ever dreamed of! haha I loved it! I wish we had one in Bloomington!
I’m off to go drink a pumpkin beer and settle in for the night! Check ya tomorrow after the 10 K! Whoop whoop!!
