Chicago/Where were the Utes?

Finally, Chicago! I have been waiting for years to go to Chicago. Obviously it is an awesome city but there is so much amazing art there. I have studied a ton of different art that resides in Chicago. We hit up the The Art Institute of Chicago. 

The Art Institute was so amazing, it reminded me of why I studied Art History. Seriously, it made me want to get my Masters. I honestly was in heaven. I wish I could have gone to all of the museums in Chicago. But if I had to go to one, it would have been the Art Institute. 

We hit up Millennium Park, with the amphitheater and the bean. It was cool to see it all. I've heard about these things for years so it was fun to finally see what everyone has been talking about. 

Here are a few of my most favorite of the paintings I saw.  Also other different, amazing architecture that is in Chicago.

We went for the Utah game in Notre Dame but I don't really have much to say about that...I think you all know why!

Finally Kudu is OPENING for Business!!!

It has been a very long time coming but finally we are opening our Gallery next week. We are having a "soft opening" Monday for family and friends from 4-8. Then we will be open regular business hours starting Tuesday November 16th.

This is a Kudu! Just in case some of you were wondering...
I'm just assuming that some people read this blog but probably not.

Unfortunately over half our inventory is stuck in New York in customs (anyone know how we can pull and strings). But the show must go on. With the holiday season upon us we really need to get open.

So, if you consider yourself friend or family, come by Monday night. If you can't make it we will be open Tuesday-Saturday from 11-6.

A thing or 2!

I'm pretty sure Halloween is my favorite holiday. Actually I'm sure of it, Halloween is my favorite holiday. This year did not disappoint. Luckily Chris was pretty willing to get into it with me. Don't get me wrong he gets into Halloween and stuff but when I showed him this picture as a potential costume choice...
Well I think you can understand his hesitation. 

But before Halloween, my sister and bro-in-law went out of town so we got to watch my niece and nephew. We picked out pumpkins and carved them. Then we watched Witches. My nephew, cutest little guy ever, is scared of his own shadow so when he said he'd watch it, I was stoked. 
Here are a few photos from the night.

I didn't tell him to make that face. He just gets  into it.  LOVE HIM!

Walkie did the his own pumpkin...solo. He rocked it. 
Kennedy and I did the Moon on the right. Chris' pumpkin didn't get photographed because it took him through almost the whole movie to perfect it. He is such a perfectionist. 

Now for our costumes! We bounced around a few ideas but, this one won. I think it turned out pretty good. 

If you don't know what the things are, then I'm sorry but you should. 

For old times sake I HAD to throw in some teeth for the actual Halloween night. 

Just a side note, I didn't even trick-or-treat and I ate more candy than I did as a kid. UGH!
