summer of Mandy: 2010 (day 63)

Last day in Chi-town

Loved Wrigley Field

Loved Millennium Park and the bean

So I bought a Cubs shirt and had to wear it.
I got some strange looks while we are at "the cell" (home of the White Sox's) :)

summer of Mandy: 2010 (day 62)

I have a confession. Technically summer is officially over but I have been dreading these last few blog posts because that REALLY means that summer is over.

So with all that said, I give you day #62.

Shopping ALL day on Michigan Avenue.

I HEART Bloomingdales!

So I might have tried on a $61,000 ring at Tiffany's.

The original H & M in front of the H&M store!

Dinner at Buca di Beppo

summer of Mandy: 2010 (day 53-56)

I am going to cheat for a little bit. I was gone to camp this week and I didn't really take a ton of pictures but these sum up the week quite well. I realized as I was packing for camp that I have packed my bags for 14 summers of my life to go to this same camp for a week of the summer. It's a place where God is always faithful to show up, regardless of our preparation, our energy, our attitudes. He SHOWS up and He does BIG things. It's a privilege and an honor to be a part of it. It's the one week of the year that I get to return to being "Macho Mandy."
