It's Chilly...again

A little something extra

Today was a busy Saturday. But i was able to find a spare moment to sit at an outside restaurant and have a snack while talking on the phone to my bff. It funny how we get caught up in the rat race of daily living that we forget the little things. How i marveled in being able to sit in the sun quietly, watching people go by, and not feel rushed. Just a day to take it all in....

Couldn't feel more relaxed than Alex...LOL

Jeans (Joes), Sweater (blk cashmere theory turtle neck), Hat (Target)

My Bff was taking photos..and i really felt carefree

Foggy Day in the Chi

The weather here was a little chilly and foggy today...but hopefully you will enjoy these pics. (P.S. This is not the outfit i wore to the magnificent Oprah)

After picking up tickets to the Oprah Show Surprise Spectacular {yes we got them!} we hit the French Market for a bite to eat, some girl chat and a few photos.

We had a great time till I was scolded by the security guard - not once, but TWICE for taking photos.  I even went and spoke to a management guy who said it was OK.  The third time he came by he said something like "Oh and by the way I understand why you would want to take photos of your friend, she's beautiful." and walked off with a big 'ol grin.  Ahhh Chicago!
