Well, I guess I owe hubby big-time because I had such a wonderful day!!! Leonard always tells me everyday is Christmas and that's just what yesterday felt like. We started off the day going out to breakfast and then he took me on a craft shopping spree. We went to Michael's, Hobby Lobby, and Joanne Fabrics. He told me I had 15 minutes to go through each store and pick up things I wanted; let me tell you, I turned into some kind of maniac!!! Can you imagine how fast 15 minutes can go when you have no idea of where to start or any idea of anything specific in mind!!! I know people that didn't know what was going on thought I was some kind of a nut!!! LOL!!! Here're just some of the goodies I grabbed:
And, YES, I defintely grabbed a Zutter Bind-It-All!!! I'd been wanting this!!! I had an old one of those cheapie binders with the plastic rings from Staples that only punches one page at a time -- and only paper!!! And look at all the yummy Tim Holtz stuff. I know a lot are duplicates of stuff I already have but who can have too much Tim Holtz, right?!!! I was so busy tearing into all this stuff when I got home, I almost forgot to take a picture! I was just like an excited kid at Christmas!
Next we went to lunch at Papadueaux's which is a cajun style/seafood restuarant that I love; and then he finally managed to get me up on the ferris wheel at Chicago's world-famous Navy Pier -- the view of the city at the top of the ferris wheel is spectacular!!! I'm so glad he cohearsed me into it because as long as that ferris wheel has been an attraction, and as many times as I've visited Navy Pier, I'd never even considered getting on the ferris wheel.
Lastly we had dinner at another of my favorite seafood restuarants called Joe's which is on the north end of downtown near the magnificent mile. We tried to end the evening with a horse carriage ride because the evening was so nice, but there were no carriages out or available when we walked over to the Water Tower.
I really wanted a picture of us up on the ferris wheel, but this is Chicago!!! I'm trusting but not stupid! You can't just hand your camera over to someone, ask them to take your picture while you're sitting on top of the world, and come back down expecting them to be there with your camera...lol!!!
I did snap a picture of my hubby's appetitzer plate because I don't think anyone can clean up crab legs the way he can:
And I took this picture of the complimentary dessert the restuarant gave us to help celebrate our anninversary:
It may not look like much, but that fudge, chocolate, icecream and whipped cream was so darn rich the first spoonful was enough for me.
Well, sorry I didn't have more pictures, but I did have a wonderful time and wanted to share with you as much as I could. Now I'm off to craft! I'll be around to visit with you later...
I'll be seeing you!
