Distraction oh Distraction

Have you ever seen my house this clean?  
My guess is no. 
Actually, I know the answer is no because I've never seen it this clean.


Probably why I feel look like this.


But it is all for a good cause.  Because the end result is this.


YEAH!  My husband is forcing me to move to the best city ever: CHI-Town, Windy City, Sausage Capital of the World! CHICAGO.  We're really psyched.  Now that I'm over the hard part of telling friends (AWFUL), it's onto the growing TO DO list of things we'll do when we get there.  

1. Children's Museum
2. Field Museum
3. Running on Lake Shore Drive
4. FOOD.  GOOD FOOD.
5. Concerts at Ravinia & Milennium Park
6. Ikea, Container Store, Anthropologie, Whole Foods, Trader Joes...all the places that take me over an hour to get to now.
7. Art Institute
8.  What else?

That #8 is directed at you readers--what do YOU think should be on our Chicago to do list?



p.s.--I've got a FABULOUS vintage home, brick & stucco tudor in Longmeadow, MA that is crying out for a buyer who will take care of it.  Bueller?  Bueller?
