Elisa's Daily Scoop NEXT TRIP DEPARTS IN: STILL DECIDING
Memories of Boston a year ago
This week is completely confusing me! With the girls having off from school on Tuesday, I can't keep track of what day it is.
It's Thursday folks. I just have to remember that all day lol.
Well, I wound up changing my hair appointment from yesterday to today. i had the right frame of mind and energy yesterday to do things around the house, namely, clean! So, I figured I'd just go with it and make progress that way.
I know Tanya felt like the days were a bit off this week as well and that's why she doubled up yesterday with a "Where to Go" feature as well as a "Travelin' Tuesday" update, since Tuesday got away from her. Just one of those weeks, guys.
Throwin' it back - well sort of... I know a year ago is not that much of a throwback, but with November here, I'm reminded of where me and the girls were this time last year.
We took our weekend road trip to Boston. And what a fun weekend it was!
I can tell you that the girls were not super psyched to go, but once we were on our way, their spirits were high and we were all in the fun mode.
It was their first trip to Beantown and I think they were even surprised at just how much they enjoyed it. Honestly, if you are looking for a quick weekend getaway, I cannot tell you how child-friendly this city is!!
I have to say that one of the highlights was seeing Beautiful: The Carole King Musical with my girlies. They LOVED it and still love listening to the soundtrack!

THE CUBS WON! THE CUBS WON!
History was made last night and boy was it ever exciting!!! After 108 years, the Cubs finally won the World Series.
Sure I had things to do. And I still have those things to do.
I didn't go shopping for the supplies needed for our trip that starts tomorrow. I didn't pack. I sat in front of the television (which I hardly ever do) from the start of the game 5pm (pst) until 9:11pm (pst).
The game went 10 innings and had me on the edge of my seat through a number of them. My heart was really in it for these guys and their fans! The game lasted 4 hours and 11 minutes, including a 17 minute rain delay and it was AWESOME.
What a great game! This could actually go down as being the BEST game that I've ever watched - and I've definitely seen my fair share of games.
I was hooting, hollering, yelling and cheering at the tv throughout the entire game.
And it was ALL worth it! These guys (the Cubs, were down 3-0 in the series and they came back to win 4 straight games in a row) I was so very happy for them!
Throwback to 2007 (c)travelincousins.com
Did any of you see the 1985 movie 'Back to the Future' with Michael J. Fox? Well they "predicted" the Cubs winning the World Series in 2015 - so they were a year off...
Not too shabby!
In honor or the Cubs winning and since it's TBT (Throwback Thursday), here are some things that you may not realize:

The United States flag had only 46 stars after Oklahoma became a state — New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska and Hawai’i hadn't been admitted yet.

The average wage was 22 cents an hour, while the average worker made somewhere between $200 and $400 a year.
Walt Disney, who was born in Chicago, was 7 years old when the Cubs last won the World Series.
Babe Ruth was 13 years old and would go on to become a baseball legend when he began playing professionally in 1914.

Well on another note, as you know I still need to pack, I still need to shop, and today I was planning on taking Cosette to go visit Dream. Dominic has class later on and all the rest of the jazz that happens in an average day in the life.
