Musings of a Museum Fanatic: Tired ...

9.25.2012

Tired ...

This past weekend was craziness!  It feels like every weekend since I got married back in May has flown by at rocket speed.  Not because terrible things have been happening but because there has been so much going on.

I mentioned way back on Friday that I was getting together with my HA ladies.  This is what we call ourselves since our Masters is in Historical Administration ... HA ... get it?  I know we're super clever right?  Also Historical Administration is just a fancy way of saying Museum Studies but I personally think either one sounds pretty cool.

So the weekend with the HA ladies was fabulous, we hit up two museums, there was shopping and good food.  I should really introduce them too.  Here is the most recent picture of us at my wedding.  That's me in the white dress.  Lauren (to my left), Saige (the tall one of the group) and Tamara (the teeny tiny blonde in the front).  Saige was in town visiting us!

Saige and I met up Friday and I took her to my favorite museum (I'm also a little biased!) in the city ... The Field Museum!  I have so much to share about our visit to the Field, as we in the biz call it : )  but I think I'll have to wait and devote my entire next post to that. I have some neat photos I'll have to locate to share with you.

Following the Field we heading up to dinner with the other ladies at Bad Apple.  They had a ton of interesting beer choices (I'm not a beer person) and crazy burger combos.  I was feeling a bit off so I didn't try anything too crazy and had their bbq pork which was delicious.

Next day we headed to south Chicago to visit the Oriental Institute in Hyde Park.  Lauren and I both were interns there at the same time.  By the way I'm warning you now I have been an intern at, worked on contract at and volunteered at a huge amount of Chicago institutions so I have a lot to tell you!  More to come on the Oriental Institute later this week!

Saturday night I met up with my husband and everyone at his show.  Check it out at Stephanie's Blog ... her photos turned out better than mine, especially since I'm pretty sure I broke my husband's camera! I am now off to chase my transportation home (yay for public transportation) and to find those pictures for you : )
