Finally Some Cool Air

So it's been really hot and humid out here. My apartment didn't have air conditioning. I had to go out and buy a fan, but it hardly did anything to cool the place off. A couple of days ago I was trying to sleep when my roomie and her boyfriend came in with an air conditioner that she had picked up from home.

The said do you mind if we wake you up and put it in. Oh believe me, I had no problem with that!! I was so grateful and it was so nice to finally sleep here and have it be cold. I love it!!!

Sailing...I wish

The other day was such a nice and sunny day out here in Chicago that I decided to go down to the lake. While walking there I ran into some people putting lots of sail boats into the water. I sat and talked to the people for awhile about it and took some pics. It was pretty fun.

This past week I have had really early show times. I hate having to wake up so early to go to work, but I love being awake to see the sun rise every morning on the airplanes... It's so beautiful. To bad the picture just doesn't do it justice!!!

Beautiful Utah!!

So I went on a trip back home to Utah this past weekend. It made me miss home so much!! Well the main thing that I couldn't get my eyes off were the mountains!! I just kept staring at them in aw liked I'd never seen them before.

I did tons of fun stuff. I hung out with my friend Dave and had a bon fire, Visited my friend Craig and his new wife. I got the date wrong for their wedding. Sadness!!!

The next day I went with my friend Jen and Torri up to Park City. It was so much fun. I love the little fun shops and the little resort town feel of it. Its like a vacation without really going anywhere. The only thing that suffered was my pocketbook, because of the Outlet mall. oh well!!

Then my favorite thing of all was the Drive in Movies!! We got a group of friends together to watch the Hulk and IronMan. Its a six screen drive in theater and you pay 7 bucks to watch two movies... I love it!! One of my favorite summer night activities!!!

I can finally check another item of my list of things I wanted to do before I die. That is get inside Wrigley Field and see a Cubs game. I've walked around Wrigley sooo many times.

On Wed. I finally was able to see the Cubs against another team I really like the Braves.

We could only get Standing room tickets, but eventually got to sit down in some seats. It was so fun. I ate hot dogs and soda,

finally got to sing take me out to the ball game at Wrigley and watch the Cubs beat the Braves 7 to 2.

After the game my friends and I hung out in Wrigleyville at Harry Caray's Tavern to celebrate the victory with tons of other people.

It could have been a better night to go out to the ball game!!!

Gas Prices!

So my friend filled up her honda accord the other day and it cost 62.06 to fill up her tank and that was at the cheap place!!!
I'm glad I don't have my car here. Hurray for CTA!!!!

Lunch w/ the girls

So a couple of days ago I went out to lunch with the girls to a place called feast. It was a perfect day to sit on the patio and just relax and have girl talk. The girls being some girls from my ward here in Chicago. The funny thing about that though is they are from Utah. Baylee the blond is from my home town of Tremonton Utah and Stephanie Johnson I met at college. Its so crazy how small the world is!!!

The Blues Festival

I went with my friend Eric to the 25th Anual Blues Festival here in Chicago. It was sooo much fun!! We were able to hear Lil' Ed and the Blues Imperials,

Theodis Ealey and an asortment of others. The best thing about it, was it was free.

There was tons of food. Which strangely you had to buy tickets and give the vendors the tickets for your food. The only thing bad about it was the RAIN!! we had many crazy cloud bursts which made my hair look terrible, but it we stayed till the end. Tons of fun!!!

Sunday Dinners

Every Sunday out here there is a group of friends that get together for dinner. We all meet at one girls house and bring something to contribute. After we are done eating we all sit around and talk about everything under the sun. I love it!!!
