with Zach. Staying with my sister-in-law, Kait. This visit was supposed to be her Christmas and birthday present but it certainly feels more selfish than our gifts normally are. Especially since my over-the-top fabulous parents/sister are watching my kiddos.
Last night I was able to go to dinner with these two beautiful ladies. Friends I've had for many, many years. Though we don't see each other nearly enough, we seem to be able to pick up right where we left. Had a genuinely fantastic time with Jayme and Tressa.
Then we met up with Kait and Zach to try some delicious cupcakes. Sinful, absolutely.
After indulging we went to Kingston Mines, a blues club in Chi-town that comes highly recommended by me. Zach's cousin, Amy, and her husband, Nick met us there. They are actually more beautiful and more wonderful and sweet in person, which as you know, makes me supremely jealous. Example A, both Amy and Kait. Compare the head/face size of hotflawedmama to her sister/cousin-in-law.
A few hours into the blues club experience I saw this guy come in. I just started watching the show called "The Deep End" that's on the boob tube right before Grey's Anatomy. He's the token hot Aussie. I was just happy to hear him speak, forgive him for the scarf he's not one of those guys that can pull that look off.
The cousins: Nick and Amy Jagoda, hotflawedmama, Kait and hotflawedmama's bearded husband.
More fun in Chicago to come, but first a nap!
