...you decide that crossing your fingers that there's enough in your checking account to cover the rent is not actually a financial strategy.
...it's become completely impossible for you to ignore a sink full of dirty dishes.
...the perfect job is one you enjoy doing instead of one that impresses people at parties.
...you've finally figured out that if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will.
...the person doling out the vitamins in the house is you.
...you check the headlines more often than (or at least as often as) you update your Facebook profile.
...you finally get the concept: Less is more, especially when it comes to eyeshadow, barrettes, and fingernail embellishments.
...you've learned to say no to people in a way that's every bit as firm as it is friendly.
...you always said that someday you'd go to India/write a novel/learn French cooking/become a dog trainer and you realize that someday has arrived.
...instead of trying to guess what perspicacious means (really sweaty?), you just ask.
...you know that even though your best friend is asking for your advice, she really just wants a chance to vent, so you simply sit there and nod wisely.
...one of your guests offers her help in the kitchen and you take her up on it.
...sleeping in means 9 a.m.
...you realize that enjoying Thanksgiving is more important than making the pie crust from scratch.
...you understand that your vote really matters, even when the numbers say it doesn't.
...your high school reunion become snot simply an opportunity to see how much better you look than everyone else but a time to...oh, forget it. No amount of maturity will prevent you from gloating.
...gossip starts to taste like junk food it is.
...you face the fact that pushing a load of stuff under the bed is not actually a form of de-cluttering.
...you develop a girl crush on Tina Fey.

I love my free redbox Mondays! Ryan works evenings now, again, which means that I'm all by my lonesome. I took advantage last night and rented Leatherheads. I heard it was good, and I really enjoyed it! That John Krasinski is a charmer. I couldn't help but be reminded of The Office when he gave those same looks. (All you fans out there know what I'm talking about.) I really loved Renée Zellweger in this as well. She's so cute! Let me know what you guys thought of it!

There were boats up and down the pier that offered lunch and dinner cruises.
From the pier we walked across town. This is the Chicago River.
Looking across the drawbridge.
We walked through the park and there was a huge amphitheater.
Last stop of the day was the Art Institute of Chicago. It is one of the nation's top art institutions, with one of the world's largest collections-more than 225,000 works in all, shown among ten departments. Two of American art's most recognizable paintings are here: Grant Wood's American Gothic (the artists dentist posed for the pitchfork-holding farmer, and the artist's sister for the spinster daughter at his side) and Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, his famous all-night diner scene. This museum has the largest membership of any U.S. art museum.
