A few pictures to share, seems my camera stayed in my bag more than it should have, or the pictures...well, let's just say I need to work on my skills. LOL
Mish aka Mish Mash Wooderson, my pal of, gosh, 4 years or so, I just adore her, for who she is as sweet and generous person, as well as her fabulous talent.
Same party, thus the same clothes, LOL. Here with Carole Burrage, known to all as TruCarma, whom I met in Anaheim but have enjoyed online for some time. Carole writes some of the best blog chatter out there! Next is my pal and the best hugger in the entire world, and our SCS go to gal, Jenn Balcer, and last, but certainly not least, Leigh O'Brien, talent oozes from her! I met her for the first time here in Chicago but have "known" her since our Dirty Dozen days.
Such fun being able to connect with these woman and so many others who remain in my memory bank! As far as seeing the show and sharing new product photos, well, I was a working girl and just don't have any product photos to share. They are all over the web on your favorite blogs if you have a little scavenger hunt. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Scor-Pal booth to say hello!
Below are just a few pictures from my Chicago touring day on Tuesday. I stayed on for an extra couple days to see the city as I had never been there before. My friend Bevie showed me the sites and beared with me while I scarfed a Chicago style hot dog and Chicago deep dish pizza, plus all the train, trolley and walking we did. Thanks BP!
Jay was a single dad while I was away for 6 days, the most I've ever been gone. He had a great time and introduced the kids to snorkeling: taking them to Wind n Sea beach as well as the La Jolla Cove. We now have a new family hobby. The kids had a blast and now have the gear to show it!
Back to the photos, these are just a couple taken in downtown Chicago:
Beautiful coneflowers from The Lurie Garden, a gorgeous perennial garden in the middle of Millenium Park.
This cool sculpture is called The Cloud Gate, aka "The Bean" by the locals, and is comprised of seamless, highly polished stainless plates. It reflects the skyline, clouds and all the people around it. Underneath is a 12 foot high arch that is a bit dizzying to look up into, I did though, and have a swirling photo to show for it!
The Jay Pritzker Pavillion. WOW, what a place to experience an outdoor concert! I can only imagine how cool it would be! Between the fixed seating and the lawn it can accommodate 11,000 concert fans!
The Navy Pier Ferris Wheel: what a neat way to see the skyline and expanse of Lake Michigan. A slow revolution and not scary at all, even at 150 feet up in the air! The kids would have had a blast here! All the neat activities and stuff to do would have been very exciting for them.
Thanks for all the good times, Chicago and CHA!
Now it's back to laundry, balancing the checkbook, and playing with some new goodies!
