Day One, Barbie Boot Camp

March 17, 2008 4 Comments A+ a-

I'm all checked into our training hotel/dorm--I have two roommates, and they are really very lovely. The Staff and Instructors really seem terrific -- it's a very positive atmosphere here, and I am very proud to be here. Of course, it is only Day One!!

And, I am so very glad I brought my memory foam mattress and my own pillows!

Saturday, Shelby and I did a quick tour of Chicago. We were down on Michigan Avenue--visiting my coveted Jimmy Choo purses...and scouring a vintage couture shop.










We were back in the car about the the Saint Patrick's Day Parade was finishing. They dye the Chicago River green every year, as you can see. (Not sure why, though...it is generally green-ish all year 'round!)
















Drove by Oprah's Place.....



And saw these way cute reminders that Spring is coming in someone's yard.

It's funny that I actually know what yard that is in Glenview. Whoever it is just put those up, but why were you hanging out in Glenview?

On your suggestion, I'm taking my boss to Johnny's today because she doesn't want to go to Steak & Shake or Panera!

But I thought I should update you on that front yard because I noticed it looked a little tame in your photos. They were still decorating:
