5 Randoms for Friday

I just got home from hanging with my boo, taking a break before we finish off the 4th at our local watering hole down the street:

1. Poor Phil's Shell Bar

I have a love/hate relationship with this place: excellent craft beer selection (I think it's like, 100 beers or something) but it smells like fried seafood grease all the time :/

2. I don't like seafood because I can't get past the smell or the rubbery texture going on, even though I remember I loved shrimp when I was little...eeewwww

3. We were at Rock Bottom in Orland Park earlier. It's a chain brewery, but they have excellent brews! I had a $3 saison-style house can't beat that with a stick.

4. Before that, we went to IKEA in Bolingbrook to get some home office stuff--very married-couple-ish, don't you think? I got a cute little swivel chair for my new classroom to be used during morning meeting and in our circle time. Otherwise, I plan on standing or sitting in a kids' chair during guided reading.

5. Happy 4th everyone! This year I was feeling too lazy to go to any bbq's. Instead I slept in until 10AM!! And then had a leisurely coffee and breakfast before IKEA. And it's only Friday! It felt like Sunday all day, and then I remembered the weekend is just beginning. It's like the gift that keeps on giving.

Thanks for reading, and see you Monday!
Time to link up for day 4 of #BTBC14!
Also, this is my first Doodle Bugs linky!


  1. Yes, today is a gift that keeps on giving! I have got to make it to IKEA someday!!!

  2. Definitely will be making an IKEA visit before school starts to replace my rug.

    Your blog is the colors! I guess we're both new at this & learning as we go!
