ready, set, chicaGO

Good news!
I'm going to Chicago to see some of my favorite people.
Bad news.
It's 9pm.
And I have yet to pack up all that stuff you see there (I decided to blog instead).
And my train leaves at 7am tomorrow morning. 
Yes. Train. Like a real choo choo train.
Yes. I have to say "choo choo train" because I'll be spending my Christmas vacation with my one year old nephew. I've got to start practicing my one year old talk now. Choo choooo.
I also need to start practicing my cooking skills.
The ketchup goes on the grill and the burgers and buns go in the sink?! So that's why I can't cook. People have been telling me wrong all along.
This explains so much.

It's Friday. We made it! 


Winner of last week's giveaway was ... Ashley {Life As I Know It}
Congrats Ashley! I will be emailing you. :)
