Just For Laughs: June 17th, 2011

Event: Just For Laughs: Joel McHale & Friends at the Chicago Theatre

Outfit: Camber dress: Anthropologie; Suit jacket: JCPenney; Sandals: Target; Necklace: Rethreads (Gap); Belt: Forever 21; Clutch: H&M

Above is my first attempt at this hair tutorial. I didn’t rock it (maybe I should own hairspray?!), but it was a fun change.

When Adam got home from work on Friday we hurried off to Chicago to enjoy an evening o’ comedy in honor of Jeff’s 25th birthday. Beth (his wife) had awesomely organized a night out to celebrate and laugh at/with Joel McHale. It was a really great show! I am admittedly VERY picky when it comes to stand-up comedy (I pretty much only like Demetri Martin), but this was a good line-up. Joel McHale was interspersed throughout the show, introducing each comedian and opening/closing the event. His jokes revolving around his own children and their antics were—rather predictably—my favorite. We walked over to the Billy Goat Tavern after the show to enjoy some quick food and beer. Nice end to a Chicago night with friends! Friends who are, by the way, NEW PUPPY OWNERS! We are so excited for Arwen to meet 20-pound black lab/retriever mix Chief!

We passed Arwen off to Adam’s mom right outside the Chicago Theatre—hence a shot of ARWEN’S FIRST TIME DOWNTOWN below. Oh, our little city puppy. She came to us from VERY rural Illinois (living outside in a pen for her first couple months), so sometimes it cracks me up to see her walking along skyscraper-lined streets or just taking the elevator.Whole different life.

As for the outfit, I was having serious NOTHINGINCLOSETWORKS-ITIS on Friday, so going with a jersey dress wound up being my best bet. Simple for the win.
