Happy Anniversary to Andy and Me!

This weekend, Andy and I celebrated the one-year anniversary of the day that I collected my winnings in the Dude Lottery.

Due to very long lines at the Shedd Aquarium and an incredibly terrible hotel experience*, the weekend didn't go as planned, but it was just wonderful.

We chased the storm clouds over to Michigan...

...and went for a wonderful walk through Grant Park and along the Lakefront.

We ate at the restaurants from the wedding weekend and our honeymoon and at David Burke(!!). Then we came home and watched football and enjoyed a complimentary tier of our wedding cake from our baker, The Sugar Syndicate.

Unfortunately, the Chicago Bears forgot that it was a celebratory weekend. Oh! And we got to open up a few notes from our Guest Book - including one from our DOC, Katie!

*I so want to post my letter of complaint up here to make myself feel better. I wonder if they could come after me though?
