Liz Gets Her Wisdom Teeth Removed

Yesterday, Liz went in to Northwestern and had her two top wisdom teeth removed. She’s had the procedure done before, but only for her lowers. The whole morning, given how calm she was and how nervous I was… you’d think I was the one going in for the procedure. Liz preferred to be put under, so she was completely out…

Dinner with Kevin, Molly and Philo

The Seal family has been visiting Chicago, and though we missed them a week or so back… Liz and I were able to catch a dinner with Kevin, Molly and their son Philo. Kevin had a hankering for pizza, so we met up at a Lou Malnati’s near Justin‘s place. There was a bit of a wait, but we hung…

Breakfast on the Go

Liz, on the way to work. As we were walking out the door, I noticed my wife had not one but two slices of bread in her hands. We were running a bit late, and she was having breakfast on the go. For some reason, seeing her double fisting bread made me laugh. And I love the fact that she’s…

Chicago Street Art Show @ Chicago Urban Art Society

A bunch of folks from work were going to attend the Chicago Street Art show in Pilsen… so a few of us made plans to have dinner beforehand, at Skylark. It had been a long while since I was last here. I think it was back in 2004, during the Pilsen Art Walk. Had fond memories of the place, and…

Liz Gets A New Office

I’m a bit late with this, as it happened last week and I didn’t have a chance to post this until today. Recently at work, Liz got to move from her rather public desk (out in the open, near a conference room) and into her very own office! I was on-hand late in the day to help her move a…

Valentine’s Day Treasure Hunt

For Valentine’s day, Liz and I agreed to not get one another gifts. We decided against going out to a restaurant, and planned for a nice, relaxing evening at home together. We’d make dinner, open a bottle of wine, light some candles, and have an intimate dinner in our apartment. The one thing we did get one another was a…

Chicago Blizzard 2011, Day 2: Afternoon

Since we’re working from home today, Chris chatted with me on IM to ask if I wanted to meet up at Longman & Eagle for lunch. It was a short trek (despite the snow), and so Liz and I bundled up and made our way out around noon. A few smaller side streets had been cleared, but after the mid-morning…

Vacation in Kohler, Wisconsin: Day 3

On our last day at Kohler, we had plans for brunch. The place was incredibly packed when we first arrived, but had mostly cleared out when we sat down at our table. The spread was awesome. They had a lot of everything, and everything was pretty fancy. They had tiny smoothies served in mini shot glasses. Apple smoked bacon and…

Vacation in Kohler, Wisconsin: Day 2

Waking up, this is what we saw outside our window. Nearby, there was a fairly large pond that had frozen over. There was a large section for skating (you could rent skates from the front desk), and a small little tractor that kept the ice clear. Nearby, some locals had cleared off a spot for some curling. I was sad…

Vacation in Kohler, Wisconsin: Day 1

It was about a year ago that Liz’s folks mentioned us all heading up to Kohler, Wisconsin, for a mini-weekend vacation. The times that Bob’s spoken to me about this place, I would see his eyes glaze over. For someone like him who’s perpetually busy and working and making things, I suspect Kohler represents a more than just a vacation….

New Year’s Eve with the Bunnies

For New Year’s Eve, Liz and I spent a quiet night at home with the bunnies. When we went into the kitchen to get some champagne, Quincy immediately followed us in (as he always does) on the lookout for food. Quincy with some friends. As the clock counted down to midnight, we gave the rabbits a few treats. In addition…

Christmas Day in Frankfort

After departing from Indy around 3PM, we made our way to Frankfort to spend the rest of the weekend with Liz’s folks. It was a quiet evening, as it was just the four of us relaxing in the house. There were a lot of trees set up, the lights were down low, and the entire place was bathed in a…

Christmas Eve in Indianapolis

Liz and I left for Indianapolis late in the morning (a little later than we intended), but made decent time along I-65. While in the car, Liz was working on some hand-made presents: two knitted dinosaurs. These were gifts that she had started a few weeks ago, and was finishing up the legs and eyes on our trip. I snapped…

Early Christmas in Georgia, Day 2

We woke to the sound of Isabelle pushing on our bedroom door, asking if we were awake yet. The kids were up and ready to open gifts, and Liz and I were the last ones still in bed. On walking downstairs to the kitchen, I saw the main course for our lunch resting on the countertop. Let the games begin!…

Decorating the Christmas Tree, 2010

We hauled up our Christmas boxes over the weekend, and began decorating the apartment for the holidays. There’s a wreath on the front door, scented candles all over the place and, of course… the tree. Liz, getting pretty festive with the decorating. Quincy, enthralled by both the lights and the tree. Ornament detail. Our tree! Related:Christmas Tree Decoration, 2006Christmas Tree…
