Boo Yah!

As Ian would say. ;-)

So today was STELLAR (that's my new word!)

I got up by 10, which was a world record, but I did go to bed at 12:30. I'm getting better, although somehow it's gotten to be 3 already. I don't know how and why I do this to myself. One day I will get up earlier! Anyway, so Erin and I decided to go to Woodfield since Laura ended up not being able to go to the mall. We left around 11:30, and called Beth (Doug's sister) to see if she wanted to join us. She was at a friend's house but said she might come with the friend and that she would call us later. So Erin and I had lunch at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Spirits (Oregon flashback!) and then went to Victoria's Secret, Nordstrom, H&M, and Forever 21. So fun! Then around 3 Beth called and said that she and Judy were coming out! YAY! So Erin and I got a snack at Starbucks, then went to Banana to shop for a bit. Then Beth and Judy called and met up with us. We went BACK to Victoria's Secret and bought more stuff... oh my! Beth is a horrible influence on me... but I love her! Then we went to Nordstrom Rack and Off 5th... Beth and I took this great picture of us being totally silly at Off 5th. I can't wait until she gets it developed! We grabbed a quick dinner at Wendy's and invited them to trivia with us, but they had to get back home.

So then we wore some of our cute new clothes and *bling* and went to 1-800-THE-CLUB for the final round of trivia. SO SAD! In GREAT news, my team won trivia for the first time EVER!! YEAAAAAAAH!! It was really random because this kid who is a friend of someone on my team came out to join us tonight, and we had a question about the Greek god Artemis. Now, we thought they said god, but then we were talking and we thought it was maybe a goddess. This random guy, Jeff, said "yeah, there was a girl named Artemis in my junior high, so I know it's a girl's name". I go "yeah, mine too! Artemis Bakapolis." He looked at me and goes "where are you from?" I just looked at him and he said "around here?" I said "yeah... where are you from?" He goes "Palatine", and clearly I said me too and we bonded. He was a Fremd kid, and went to Immanuel Lutheran for grade school. Interesting. So that was cool. Then Erin and I grabbed Steak and Shake and then rented Something's Gotta Give. Cute movie. And now I will sleep. And hopefully see Beth sometime in the next few days because I adore that girl! She is so much fun, and Erin and I were both sad when she had to go and couldn't come join us again. Maybe she'll come visit me in Iowa... THAT would be amazing. And it's fun bonding with her a little bit about Doug, just not too much, because that could get weird. But she's so fun... yeah sorority chicks!
