Chicago! Chicago!


After three fun filled days in the Windy City and one rough morning flying home...We have returned from our little jaunt.  We ate, we drank, we shopped, we saw beautiful art, we got massages, and we saw/met two famous people.

So what shall I discuss first?

How 'bout our shopping purchases?

Hunter got two pairs of shoes...bastard.  I got one pair.
You would think they don't sell shoes in East Tennessee.

Mine:
Tods Loafers
My shoe fashionista hubs loved these...I did too.


I also got a bracelet and a scarf.  Hunter did not get any jewelry or neck wear.

Me:

Hermes Brazil
The big fat one just didn't look right on my delicate wrists

And:
Is it not perfect for me?!



We saw some beautiful art at SOFA.





We purchased this lovely work by Preston Singletary


We saw this guy...

michael-shannon-slice
Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire)..looks just like himself.  Image that.

And we met this guy...

That would be GSL...he looks just like this.
We met for drinks and dinner at The Red Lion.  We met the owner of this establishment who is highly likely related to Hunter.  His very entertaining friend Dutch joined us also.

Five and a half hours later and with a slight hangover the following morning...

Who wants all the dirt?

    1. Michael Shannon disappeared. I can not get over how thin and tall he is.

  4. T, Enjoyed you and Hunter's delightful company immensely...only quibble is why couldn't you have snapped the selfie before I was pie-eyed drunk! Oh my goodness...just got a condolence call from Renee Zellweger wondering if that was really me.
    Last time I try to go toe-to-toe with Hunter!

  7. I love the Singletary piece. I think I was an art thief in a former life; there is a lot of envy here. Gorgeous Hermes picks too. What a fun trip. I only made it as far as ORD and am sad to have missed out on all the fun!

  10. put me firmly in the jealous category.I disappear for a while and everyone goes off together! Lunches in London! Drinks in Chicago! I hope you gave GSL a pinch from me. I want all the dirt.
    Your treasures are lovely. Please show us the scarf in action. And where will you place in the sculpture?
    I love having arty, jet-setting friends like you...

    1. Were your ears burning? Have no idea where I will put the art...I needed a wall piece but fell in love with the whale. Yes, I shall demonstrate the scarf with both my cobalt coat and my green coat...I love it so.

    1. I am awaiting the delivery of the shoes. They require a signature and of course Fed Ex is still not her...it's 2:00PM. They are worthy though.
