@Allison I love cabs up to the point where I don't have cash and spend the entire ride full of anxiety that they are going to give me sass about using a card at the end of the ride.
@PicNic You should bike up to museum campus for your picnic. Love that view of the city. And hopefully you're not here during Chicago marathon weekend because it becomes a little bit hectic to do the things you want to do in the city. The only pitchers I've ordered in Chicago have been beer, margaritas, or sangria. I need to step it up.
@JNC Musings Factory This seemed odd to me too. Even if a veggie meal isn't on the menu/an option on the invite, the caterer/venue usually has something if you tell them. I've been to 8 or so weddings in the past few years and it's never been an issue. These were are fairly traditional reception venues so I'm sure they're used to it.
@PicNic Chicago, ay? I'm hoping for beautiful weather in October both for your visit and for my sanity.
@andnowlights I'm all about the dresses because I only have to make one decision. Pairing skirts/pants with tops can sometimes be way too much for me, even if I only own basic colors.
@Cat Named Louise coming soon to thebillfold.com, "How Much Does a Reading Retreat for Adults Cost?"
@Cat Named Louise I am jealous of this. I would love to be at camp reading Harry Potter 7 in the rain with a bunch of other kids.
@cryptolect what a dated comment! "Get with the program." Ha, I can feel the 90s sass oozing from that line.
@Tripleoxer I struggle with the things that I could potentially afford, but don't want to/rather would spend the money elsewhere. Example: weekend trips. Yes, I can technically afford a couple hundred dollars right now, but I'd rather save it. Or on a smaller scale, dinners out.
@RiffRandell I love that movie! Perfect for a wine night in.
