That Time On A Boat

So you may all remember here when I wrote about that fun little thing Malibu Rum is doing to encourage you to have the Best Summer Ever. If you have no idea what I am talking about, see here. After writing that post I assumed that there is no time like the present to make some of those items happen, and so I did. You see, we decided to head to Chicago last weekend with two other couples to watch the air and water show. The original plan was that we were going to join the million [yes, truly a million] people and stand street side to watch the show. And that's when I realized that would be the most boring and horrific way to watch it. Horrific only because I was already PMS'ing and me and a million people less than inches apart from each other isn't probably the best equation, just guessing. Long story short, feeling all sorts of jacked up on the #BestSummerEver challenge, I made the executive [also read: genius] decision to have us and our friends aboard a boat for an all you can eat, all you can drink, DJ and dancing included, cruise to watch the show from. So that's what we did...and it was awesome. Now would be the proper time to insert a million pictures [much better than people] of our time below. 

this was somewhere between round two and round three 


I know I had a great time, only because this was one of the last pictures from the afternoon on my camera. That would be me, which appears to be headbanging or something of that nature, at sometime around 3:00 in the afternoon. Proving that life truly is better on a boat....as if we had any doubt in our minds before this.


Thank you Malibu Rum for encouraging me to have the #BestSummerEver, because of you--I think I just might. Time to go plan the next greatest thing to do in life. Stay tuned.

  1. Were those the Blue Angels you saw? If so, they hail from my hometown of Pensacola, Fl! :) Red White and Blues is our biggest weekend of the summer!

  9. Fun! What type of camera do you use to take your pics? I always have an internal debate on if I should lug my SLR camera around..

  10. You are absolutely right, standing around a million people during the air and water show was pure misery....in fact, so miserable, we didn't even see the whole thing. I've lived here for almost 7 years now, I should be used to it. But, millions of people get really old, really fast.

  12. Nice photos Erin! I live in the Chicago 'burbs, and I love summertime in Chicago! What else did you do in the city? Did you check out any roof tops restaurants/bars? I was at Navy Pier 3 weeks ago seeing the kiddie show Seussical with my daughter at the Chicago Shakes, it was a really good adaptation. Great theatre, I've seen some other plays there as well. Did you check out any other cool bits about the Chi while you were visiting?

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
