Art and the philosophy of life

Okay, so…

Bling (aka Michelle)  came over last Sunday and left this morning around eleven.  She drove in from Oklahoma and we had a blast.

I took her to see The Bean and, truthfully, I never let her have any rest.  I kept taking her from one place to another.  It was her first time in Chicago:), so there was a lot to see.  I wined and dined her with diet Dr. Pepper (her favorite) and whipped cream cheese and strawberry jelly on bagels or toast.  🙂  We ate lunch when we were out everyday, otherwise that’s what we would have eaten all the time.  LOL  We had ice cream, cookies, popcorn, fruit cups, BAGS AND BAGS of chocolate covered donuts and other assorted healthy foods.  We had a fabulous lunch at California Pizza and we met Kim and Liz, two incredible local bloggers, at Olive Garden for dinner.  Kim brought the famous Pee, so we finally got to meet her beautiful dog.  It was a great week and the weather, in spite of the forecast, was almost perfect.  🙂

  5. I sooo love this bean !!!

    • It’s truly outstanding. When you get underneath it…it’s so weird and so much fun. If you look straight up, everything looks normal but once you start to let your eyes go down the sides the real fun begins. The pigeons love to sit on the top. They polish it all the time because people touch it. It’s a great addition to Chicago and it’s Art.

      • Oh yes, I can well imagine they have to polish it all the time, you just HAVE to touch it when you see it I think !

      • Yes, especially the kids:) People lay on the ground and put their feet on it while others take their picture. It’s fun because of the distortions. It’s actually called Cloud Gate but we all call it The Bean:)
