Quick Trip To Chicago

Phillip had to make a short trip to Chicago and he wanted some company, so off we went! I didn't get to see much but since I only had a few days off before I have to start my 5 long days at work it was nice to sit in the hotel room while he had to work. We did go to the Sears Tower and also got to go to a very nice restaurant downtown with the owner of the company Phillip is working with and his wife.
I think the view at night is better than during the day, but it sure makes taking pictures hard.

I really want to go back in the summer so we can see more and not worry about freezing!

V-day Rocks!

Flowers, a card, some chocolate that I would feel guilty eating, a dinner out.....that is what I was expecting for Valentine's Day. But, this is the second year in a row that Phillip has totally surprised me. When I walked in the first thing I saw was not flowers but an fruit bouquet. Better then flowers! We can both enjoy the fruit (half of it chocolate covered!) and I don't have to clean up the mess when the flowers dry up! Then I saw the jewelry bag........I had not asked for anything so I was a little worried.
Of course I LOVE them, but the best part was that he said he had been waiting for years to get them for me. How sweet!

On another subject, earlier this month Sadie celebrated her 7th birthday. I guess I have made enough doggy cakes for her to recognize the smell because as soon as I start mixing the ingredients she gets excited and then she stands by the oven while it is baking. Somehow beyond a doubt she knows that it is hers!
