Ben and I took a little trip down to St. Louis to see a friend of ours from college. I took a few pictures while we were there, so I'll make a post later. Our drive down was fun. I wish we had the money to go on an epic road trip, I've always wanted to drive around America for like 6 months. I want to stop at Wall Drug and see the world's largest ball of twine, do it all. One day!
Because traveling is just miserable (I really have no luck at all with it) we got caught in an epic storm on our way home. Then one of our windshield wipers broke. We made it out alright, but it was a little scary there for a second.
With our friend, Alex. Alex was probably my first friend when I went to Beloit and at the beginning of our junior year I told him I thought Ben was cute and he rolled his eyes and told me it would never happen. Pssh.
We went to a bar and they were playing the Cardinals v. Cubs game. It was so weird being on the other side of the game and the Cubs played so badly. SMH.
I took this little shot of Ben in our kitchen. I realized after I took it that the majority of my favorite shots of him, of us, of our life, happen in the kitchen. It's the only room I can seem to do right, haha.
Our cupcake tasting! We went to Molly's Cupcakes and tried a bunch of them. I've actually been going here for years because it's right across the street from where I get my haircut, so this was the one vendor I knew we had to nab. I'm not going to say they had the best customer service (they made us pay for half of them and then the woman sat and stared at Ben and I as we tried the different flavors. A-W-K-W-A-R-D), but their cupcakes are freaking insane. If you are ever in Chicago, you need to check them out.
And last but not least, we went and saw "The Book of Mormon"! I saw that it was touring in Chicago until May and I wanted to surprise Ben with tickets, but they are so expensive. I beat myself up about it for weeks until I finally bit the bullet and got us a pair. But then keeping it a secret was another ordeal! I told Ben to take off work that night because we needed to see a florist and he called me back and said, "Lisa, I have taken off three days already to see florists-how many florists do we need to see?!" I kept up the jist until a couple days before when I was just too excited not to tell him. He was floored-he had no idea they were even in town!
It was absolutely amazing. It's definitely an out there play--I have a pretty wicked sense of humor and even I was like, "Oh my God, they did not say that!" But it's hysterical and absolutely worth the money.
I'm already plotting our next show-any suggestions?
