Chilly winds whipped my hair in a crazy frenzy but I didn’t mind. It felt really good to walk around this city on busy feet, and with my favorite little guy.

We noshed crepes and breakfast burritos at Yolk, one of our old South Loop favorites, and when Fitz took off to work, me and Wells got a hearty dose of color at The Art Institute.

I tend to favor the contemporary, so Christopher Wool’s exhibit felt like an extraordinary world of stark, witty signals. There is very little leisurely strolling that comes with taking a two-year-old to a museum, but I managed to see quite a bit and photograph what I wanted to study later on.

That big red blotch up there? Wool calls it: ‘Minor Mishap.’

We spent a good chunk of time playing in the family center, pointing out colors and numbers in The Modern Wing, and before I could even walk to Michigan Avenue, Wells was fast asleep in his stroller. So much for grabbing lunch at that patisserie I was coveting…

But really, I don’t mind. Days like this and adventures like these are a gift…even if everything is covered in snow.

Sometimes, dancing like a jackass can feel pretty damn great. Let those moves flow, Leo!

Fitz has been traveling for work for five straight days. He came home around midnight last night, and was scheduled to be in Chicago for the next three days.

Being apart for that long is a total bummer. So the whole gang decided to pack up and join him…yes, even Theo (pet-friendly hotel FTW), and even the blue golf club that Wells will not leave home without.

So far, so good. Wells is going bonkers for all the cars, trucks, and buses he can see from his accommodations, and the bathroom here is larger than most of the bedrooms in our house. So we got that going for us, which is nice.

Not exactly a vacation, not really a staycation (that word is annoying, yes?).

Let’s go with adventure.

Oh, why the hell not

Tagged by Baby Takes Manhattan. Here goes…

1. What is one thing we would be surprised to learn about you?
That I have a little bit of musical theater in my background. As a kid I auditioned for the musical Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I made every single cut except the last one- they said I was simply too tall to play a little kid. :(

2. Last great book you read?
The Goldfinch was brilliant. Her was gritty but just incredible.

3. What is your go to hostess gift?
Everything WINE. Ferrari Carano chardonnay or Silver Oak Cabernet.

4. What is your guilty pleasure?
True crime books, Broad City, Vanderpump Rules, and chocolate milkshakes in the dead of winter.

5. Where is the best place you’ve ever been?
Post Ranch Inn at Big Sur. It was rustic, dramatic, and jawdroppingly stunning. I felt swept away, completely one with the Earth.

6. What are you currently coveting?
Bylines. My husband’s looming graduation. Sandals and sunscreen. A perfect trenchcoat. Backyard cocktails and a fire in our fire pit. Strong runner’s legs.

7. What song makes you rock out every time you hear it?
The Walker by Fitz & the Tantrums

8. What is your greatest fear?
Losing my father.

9. What is the funniest name you’ve ever had written on your Starbucks cup?
No one really screws up Kelly, but one time someone wrote ‘Pretty Eyes’ and I thought that was just about the nicest damn thing.

10. Signature scent?
Chance by Chanel seems to keep finding a way into my house. Really lusting after Prada Candy L’Eau, though.

11. Pet Peeves?
Rudeness. Toilet seats left up. Elitist attitudes.
