weekend getaway...

sheesh, the weather in chicago was such a tease yesterday! so bummed, the nice warm [55 degrees! yes it rained but compared to the weather we have had lately, it was okay with me!] weather we had yesterday IS gone! it was the first time that i was able to be outside without a jacket! well, if anything it just means spring is right around the corner!

we are spending the weekend up in lake geneva, wisconsin and staying at the grand geneva resort & spa. below is a photo of our hotel room. i would show you a picture from outside our bedroom, but unfortunately we look out at the parking lot! ha! ha! wish we looked out over the golf course, but whatever!
i don't have this at home, but love it when hotels/resorts have televisions in the mirror! not that i plan on spending much time in the bathroom, but still a fun feature. ha! ha!
wondering what's playing in the background? that would be "suck my kiss" from the red hot chili peppers! still love that song, hard to believe it was release back in 1991! yes, 20 years ago!!! GASP! for those of you who are old enough [like myself] to remember, lol!!!

this afternoon i ventured into town and decided to visit my favorite shops! unfortunately, i made the mistake of wearing my new saks 5th ave. loafers! duh, note to self --- DO NOT WEAR LOAFERS WHEN THE GROUND IS WET!!
ugh, my toes got a little wet! oh well, thank god i remembered to bring my duck boots!
oh well, right now i am taking a break from the shops and enjoying a little internet time over at the largest starbucks in the U.S. yup, it sure is! this place is huge and it's packed! wish i decided years ago to be the first to open a starbucks in lake geneva! if so i would probably be a millionaire by now! ha! ha!
as far as the "pampering" part of our getaway, i was going to go over to the spa for a manicure/pedicure. well, that's not going to happen! i chipped a nail and whenever one nails goes they all go!  i can't stand seeing people we nails that are not the same length, it drives me NUTS!!!  oh well, decided to enjoy the indoor pool instead, so much for a little time!

not sure where we are going to go for dinner. there are so many great restaurants in lake geneva and the surrounding area. we are definitely going to try some place new! sushi would be good, so we shall see!

oh well, i hope you are enjoying your weekend!

take care,

change is good, right?!?!?

welcome to just another preppy shopaholic!

it's friday night and i decided it was time to create a new blog! what a life, lol! ha! ha! that's okay, we are spending the weekend in lake geneva, wisconsin at the grand geneva resort & spa. it's a beautiful resort. i will post photos from my little weekend getaway later.

last week on my other blog [preppy little dress blog] i posted about my new monogrammed totes from l.l.bean. can't believe i almost ordered two more!
seriously, how many totes and duffle bags can one person own?  below is a view of a few of my totes and duffle bags. i have others packed away, these just happen to be the ones i currently use. 
my favorite of course is my louis vuitton keepall!  ha! ha!

i love to travel with my LV keepall, but won't take it on a plane!?!?!  strange, guess i am afraid i would be forced to check it and someone would replace it with a fake? ha! ha!

oh well, i have to run for now. have a great night!
