Yesterday went something like this:
I picked up this beauty from the airport around noon. Harlow absolutely loves her as you can see. Although he gets a little confused when I talk to her because my “Lola voice” is the same as my “Harlow voice” it turns out.
Lola was thrilled to be at lunch with just the girls. She apparently has had a long couple of weeks at the office and was really looking forward to getting away for a few days. She really gets after the bottle hard, if you know what I mean.
So we had a few toasts in honor of Lola’s first trip to Chicago.
Then she and I had a talk about why her big brother is being so ornery as of late. I made her promise me to never go through the terrible-twos, she can save that for the terrible twenty-twos.
And after we had a very nice stranger take a photo of the three of us we walked a few blocks down the street to my favorite little French restaurant, Mon Ami Gabi.
Because it was a gorgeous evening, we were able to sit outside- which was perfect because Mon Ami has a wonderful little patio that sits right across from the park.
We had some seafood and some dirty martinis. I don’t love dirty martinis yet, but I’m trying, damn it. I do, however, love the blue cheese olives that come with a dirty.
And then Grizzly Adams joined us for a drink or two. I wish this photo wasn’t so dark so you can see the lovely beard Chris is growing. He said forget Beardvember, he’s getting a jump on it and going for Beardtober. I don’t hate it.
And there’s a little photo overload for you. Happy hump day! *And just for the record, Grizzly Adams did have a beard.
