Where Oh Where Has Erica Been. I have not posted for a long time. Probably the longest since I started this blog. I don't really have a great excuse. I was in Florida and then Chicago and things have just been kind of crazy. So let me tell you all about it.
Florida was fantastic. I went with 4 girlfriends and we had an absolute blast. There was a lot of Shenanigans, which is just the way I like it! I posted some photos on Facebook but here is the only one I got of all of us. Beleive it or not, I wasn't too camera happy on this trip.
I feel so lucky to have found these girls. I started our bookclub in Oct 2008 because I was in a new city, lonely and depressed. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would find such amazing friends. (Sorry, sappy part over). I am already counting down the days till our trip to Nashville in April. We are going for the Country Music Half Marathon and staying for the Honkey Tonks. Can't wait!
I got home from FL on Tuesday and flew to Chicago on Friday for Michael's fathers funeral. I felt like the funeral and the Shiva house were really a good celebration of Art. I was glad I could be there for Michael and his family. It was a really sad couple of days, Art was an amazing father, husband, grandpa and everything!
I got back late Tuesday night.
Last night I took Rory to a couple houses trick or treating. Mainly just to show off how cute she is. Then I just hung out with my little Elmo the rest of the night. She was even more cuddley then normal in the furry costume!
Rory has been a little off the last week or so. I am not sure if its a stage or if she is teething or what, but she has been super crabby. Every time you transition to a new activity etc she flips out. More about this later.
