This lucky girl lives a) with the best roommie (aka Simo) & neighbors one could ask for and b) right next door to the Merchandise Mart (aka Mart or MM). It’s Saturday morning and I am just waking up with way too little sleep after a fun night out with the girls. Q: What’s the first thing I do? A: Text my roommate. You read me right. Technology = sloth. So after some back and forth about who should make who breakfast we decided to walk across the street to the Mart to pay someone to make it for us. We roll out of bed, grab our friend/neighbor Matt and trek 30 feet to the MM food court.
While enjoying our egg sammies and caffeinated beverages I announce that we are making an impromptu trip to the Dream Home exhibit just down the hall. The Dream Home is something that the Mart uses to showcase top designers and the latest in design. Matt was less than thrilled but knew he didn’t have a choice. At least he had jeans on though… Simo and I were worried they wouldn’t let us and our grungy pjs through the door. Good news folks… despite appearances they let us all in and we had a wonderful time pretending we were one big happy family living the American dream in our Dream Home. Enjoy the tour with us, mouse over the image for credits and pls excuse the picture quality as all were shot with my mobile:
