Meeting Friends!

Wow, it's been a long week! The play is done hooray! It went well, but I'm glad it's over because it's one more thing I can cross off my list.


"I don't understand. Am I the only dumb bunny here?"

I'm in Chicago with Michelle and Mimi! We went out to dinner at Italian Village and Manic joined us for a FUN time. I will never keep a straight face when I hear the word "Twitter" again.


Now we're sitting here in our hotel room and every time a firetruck goes by or a car makes some noise, Mimi and Michelle freak out. Michelle says that cows don't make noises like that. I'm cracking up here!

No Sunday sound out (mostly because I just realized it was Sunday about 5 minutes ago and I have to get to bed. Don't want bags under my eyes for Oprah tomorrow, right? Instead I'll show you the cover of my book this week!

OMG saw the pic and thought.....That's George Clooney!!Then....nahhhhhh.........this guy is older.That's REALLY George Clooney's Dad? Or a lookalike? Never mind he looks yummy!

Have a fantastic time at Oprah. Did some-one pull strings for tickets? I've heard you have to wait a gazillion years to be in the audience. Wonder what the show will be on? HAVE FUN !! xxxx

Happy Sunday!!! Hopefully you ladies are getting your beauty sleeps already, not that any of you need it!! I'm smiling at all the pictures of you girls' smiles!

It sure looks like you gals were having fun! All the photos of Chicago are making me long to be there. Good thing I'm going there in July for a meeting; I can eat at my favorite restaurants and maybe I'll meet George Clooney's dad too.

Have a great time with Oprah!

Patty said...

Glad the show went well. You are a busy bee. I wish I was a fly on the wall in Chicago. It looks like a bunch of giggling school girls, but with rum. I'll be watching today.

I am so glad that you guys are having so much fun! How is Mimi doing? Did she talk about Julian? Is that the right Mimi you are talking about?
Yuu guys looked like your friendship will just blossom from here and that is the best thing in the whole wide world.
Take care and I'll watch the audience for a glimpse of you.

Every time we go into the city, we hit Italian Village! Mmmmmm, now am hungry for Lasagna at 7:25 am. Have fun at Oprah!

Tara said...

Is it just me or have you lost weight since you got famous? Is it all the stress and hetic-ness of your life? Doesn't matter, you look so great! Just to show all stay at home mom's, you don't have to wear pj's and have a ponytail, you can look good. Dawn does it. Hope your trip was great!

Manic Mom said...

The one BEAUTIFUL PHOTO that is all abstracty arty looking--you failed to tell everyone that it is a photo of

THE GUM UNDERNEATH THE TABLE AT THE CLASSY RESTAURANT WE WENT TO!!!

had a twittering-quanking-pootering-puckering blast with you gals!!!

The Italian Village will never be the same!!!

Oh, and you didn't tell everyone that you were NOT the first celebrity to sit in that Confessional cove--

George Clooney and Julia Roberts!!!

The Huffs said...

OMG I am so so envious that you get to go to Oprah!! I've been trying for years. *sigh* You lucky duck!!

I've got my TiVo all set to record Oprah today just in case I can see you guys in the audience. Have a total blast (sounds like you already are!!).

C-Rah said...

I nearly jumped outta my chair when I read 'will be on Oprah'. Did I miss an awesome update announcing an Oprah appearance?? Then I read the post before that & realized you'd be in the audience. Ohhhhh.

Laura ~Peach~ said...

I am glad you are having fun! You deserve it after finishing that book and all you do at home! Have a great time at Oprah! If it's live I will be looking for you three Musketeers! Have a good week!

melech said...

Dawn: Thanks for sharing!! I personally am anxious to see your "cover art".
Just counting down the days until your BOOK is ready. Do you think we have to camp out at Barnes & Noble like they did for the Harry Potter books?

Sangeeta said...

OMG... what is wrong with u?? You are NOT fat!!! The pic of you entering your room is the only one that I have seen that is full length of you and you are definately not fat. And I have to say you are a really beautiful smile..one that reaches your eyes :)

Beth said...

Glad to see you are having a good time! :) Its nice that you and Mimi finally got to meet.

I'll be thinking of you all when Oprah airs today!

Oh...and I can't wait to see the cover of your book...don't keep us in suspense for too long, ok? lol

Greta said...

Floated over from Manic.

Say hidey how to Oprah for me. We are like *this* (crosses fingers).

Julie said...

Hork on the gum, that is so nasty!!

LaLa said...

Twitter makes me giggle too,I wonder if for the same reason! A co-worker told me Bon Jovi was a tooter twitter. Then explained.

Karla with a K said...

I have a life... I just happened to plan it around the LIVE OPRAH appearance of 3 famous blogger moms today!!!

Glad you're having fun.

Sue said...

Which of you 4 sassy gals took the picture of the gum under the table?! So glad you guys are having a great time! Can't wait to hear about Oprah!

Patty said...

I hope you have a great time!!

My Flock Rocks! said...

Wish I could be in Chicago to meet up with you all~ Tell Mimi "Sue from Brimfield Il." says Hi and I got my T-shirts and bracelets today! Lots of Hugs!

Andie said...

Looks like a fabulous time was had. I heard about you from Manic- and then I saw the name of your blog and had to stop by- because my mom STILL uses your title to this day when she tells me something I don't want to hear and I say "why?" LOL

so hellO!

Anonymous said...

I looked and I looked and I looked . . . I couldn't find you in the audience!! Hope you had fun and not too many tears during the bye bye song.

TONYA said...

ha ha loved the pic of the gum under the table.

Oh how I would love to be anywhere with you and Manic, two of my favourite bloggers :)

SAHM: Surviving Assorted Home Mayhem said...

Sounds like you girls had a blast- I want to be in your Scooby gang!

nutralady2001 said...

BWAHAHAHA!!! Can't believe I was first..... J/K Dawn you know how we've all longed to have that "honour"

Grandmother Goddess of the Garden said...

That is NOT George Clooney's dad. I hope you know that. I live in Cincinnati, where George's dad Nick was an anchor man on our local news for years. He also had his own talk show here in the 70's.

janetcc said...

You're such a tourist -- and you live just west of Chicago!

I'd say you need to get out more, but you appear pretty busy. Guess I'm immune to Chicago's charms, I've worked in the loop since 1979.

You do know that the only thing on Italian village's menu that meets any kind of WW points reasonably is the salad - sans dressing! Hope you enjoyed it (even if you did have to use all 35 weekly points!)

Kalynne Pudner said...

Thank you for giving me an excuse to remove the Twitter Update widget from my blog...and pimp yours at the same time. In case there's anyone out there who hasn't already found you.

By the way, you make a smashing blonde.

This comment is really for the Oprah post above but I can't get into the comments for some reason. I was going to say that when I saw the title that I thought Oprah interviewed YOU. I was going to program her show to record here tonight. Darn it. Your time is coming, I just know it!

Michelle said...

OMG! I *love* The Village. I used to have a subscription to theater downtown (ahhh, the days of being single) and would go there before every performance. I even had a regular order that the waiter knew. I really miss those days sometimes.

You're so lucky to get one of the alcoves. Those were always my favorite places to sit! But I did *not* know about the gum. Maybe that's best.

Glad y'all had lots 'o fun. So very jealous... and way behind on my blog reading!
