Happy Summer ladies and gentlemen seriously! I trust that you are all keeping it classy over Memorial Day. For those of you that follow the FACEBOOK...you will see that the gorgeous (previously redhead) blonde and I have started a summer challenge...NO, not a weight loss challenge, fitness challenge or financial challenge (in fact this challenge might hurt all of these areas), we are on a bar challenge...100 bars different bars this summer. The only rule is that we cannot count the same bar twice, we both need to be there and we each need to have one drink. Hey, it's lots of fun, ANY of our friends are welcome to join us at any point. It will get us out to new neighborhoods in Chicago. And maybe we will meet cute boys the old fashioned way....by talking to them in person over a lovely glass of wine. And maybe one of them might want to take me to dinner.
So last weekend, my pseudo little brother got married in lovely Pittsburgh, PA. While I haven't mentioned this, I had been seeing a guy and let's just say it never has really taken off. ANYWAY, I had asked him to be my date for the wedding and he was unable to attend with me (long story and honestly it is not worth mentioning). So I was scrambling for a date a week before the wedding. Of course, the gorgeous blonde stepped in as my date (as any of the fab 4 of SMB best friends would have done). The date included a 14 hour roundtrip road trip and 36 hours in Pittsburgh. I have to tell you that we had a BLAST. Not only did we enjoy our table (with people MUCH younger than us), we just had a great time all the way around. Side note...for those of us that grew up in the 80's, Pittsburgh is the home of the movie Flashdance of course. Just a steel town girl on a Saturday night. Well, the gorge blonde and I thought this was amazing...apparently it's not a "thing" in Pittsburgh. We did request it at the reception and did our best to do the Maniac dance, let's just say, it wasn't as well received as we thought it might be.
So here's my point, ladies seriously, we don't need a date with a man to make our own fun. And I know that I had a much better time at the wedding with the gorge blonde than I probably would have with original date. Ladies seriously...the best thing we can do for ourselves (for my single ladies out there) is make your own fun and make your own happiness. And if you find a man that fits into that life...awesome, be happy.
So as you go out into the fun summer, enjoy, make your own fun, no matter what you are doing. Keep it classy ladies.
Keep your chin, heels and standards are high

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. That's my girl Coco Chanel. Well, being the single gal in Chicago, selling and marketing luxury travel and being a Sorority Director for Gamma Phi Beta, I have a lot to say. So this blog is my random thoughts on everything on love, life, fashion, movies, fitness and beyond and advice on how to be a lady and have some class!
- 39 (AND HOLDING) year old single gal in downtown Chicago who loves Jazzercise, Gamma Phi Beta, friends, family, fashion, fine wine and movies. I will admit I am a SNOB about the following things: wine, coffee, handbags, shoes, cars and men.
