halloween, graceland cemetery and wrigleyville (again XD)

holy crap, it's tuesday. what with 1) the cubs win 2) halloween awesomeness 3) approaching out of towner visit, i've lost track of time. that is why i'm gonna throw a ton of photos at you but keep it light on the words.

so hey, it's fall. did you know?

i have missed seasons so this has been glorious. still also enjoying public transit that works.

still loving all the polish goodies that are readily available.

but getting back to the halloween awesomeness. people go all out here.

i am fully in the tank for halloween.

meet creeps and spoops. heart them.

i even drug out some old decorations.

leff put up some lights!

but back to the neighborhood. i am so about this place.

here's a tomb that we saw on the way to graceland cemetery.

you simply MUST visit this place. not only is it full of impressive sculpture

and ornamentation

it is ALSO full of chicago luminaries. (hover for names)

PLUS it's an arboretum so i need to go back in the spring to see everything when it's blooming.

yeah, THAT george pullman.

found waldo snork snork

and mr cub. i pretty much almost cried when we found ernie banks (he's not on the cemetery map yet but he is located very near mies van der rhoe. please pay him a visit.)

we didn't track down the wandering ghost at graceland because, wow, we are still super tired these days. so we walked past this cardinal


i died. it was so delicious. they buried me at graceland. XD

thought you'd like a clouseau photo before we hit CUBS MANIA photos. here's the cool dude.

SO YES leff and i went to wrigley the day after the nlcs clinch. IT WAS SO CROWDED they ran out of w donuts at dunkin and HAHAHA NO ONE HAD WORLD SERIES HATS (at least not the one that leff was looking for) and i waited too long to get a rossy t :((((((


it's pretty much been a nonstop cubs fest in chicago this week. soak in the ambiance a bit (unless you're a cleveland fan in which case...uhm...idk?? XD)

kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkaaaaaaaay gotta prep some snacks for WORLD SERIES GAME ONE *SCREAMING*

this is now a halloween and cubs appreciation blog. loletc. see you next week GO CUBS GO
