10 Things..

Inspired by Jamie from Burnett Photography I decided to do a little "10 Things" for people to get to know me better! Thanks for the idea Jamie.

1. I have been a vegetarian for around 12 years.
2. I not only LIKE brussel sprouts, but I love them.
3. I have an abnormal fascination with squirrels.
4. I have seven tattoos.
5. My favorite author is Oscar Wilde.
6. I have three younger brothers.
7. I collect My Little Pony figures. And, I am not ashamed of it.
8. I am totally obsessed with shoes, you could say I collect those too.
9. I enjoy geeky things such as Star Trek, and comic book movies.
10. My favorite band is Depeche Mode.

Comment and tell me something about you.. :) Anyone is welcome to play!

A very belated Chicago update.

I had posted a couple of preview pictures from our trip to Chicago quite some time ago. I have finally gone through them all, and picked a few of my favorites to show here. Chicago has some really amazing architecture! I have always been a self-proclaimed lover of "old buildings" so Chicago was a great place for me. (Not to mention all the other cool stuff about it!)

A view of the Civic Opera Building from the river.

The lake, a bit of Millennium Park, and some of the oft-seen construction.

We loved Chicago and I can't wait to go back again!

Lafon's Firework Stand

On our way back home from our exploration yesterday, we stopped at Lafon's firework stand. They were super nice and very helpful in guiding my husband to pick the right fireworks for us. :)

To get to Lafon's from 75, take the Bethany exit (in Allen) and follow it until it turns into Lucas, and then take a left on W Lucas, and you'll see Lafon's just up the road. You can't miss it!

You'll see why.. :)

World class fireworks!

My honey debates on what to get..

So if you need some fireworks.. you should go to Lafon's and check them out!

Let's go exploring..

Today Brian and I went out exploring out Northeast of where we live. We found some beautiful rural areas with all sorts of fun vintage stuff! It's only about a 20-30 minute drive from where we live, so it doesn't actually take that long to get from a metro suburban area to get to the gorgeous country! We took our dog, Dante, as well, because he loves a good car trip!

Dante enjoying the wind through his teeth!

On our way back home from Princeton, we stopped at Lafon's Fireworks and I took some pictures there as well! They had a fun classic car and lots of bright colors. I will post some pics from Lafon's tomorrow! Stay tuned..
