Things to Do in Chicago with Dogs: Miss M (and Willie!) go Renegade

Just as we thought the summer festival season was over, we were excited to remember one of our favorite events happening right smack dab in the middle of our neighborhood. Renegade Craft Fair  gathers independent Etsy artists from across the nation displaying the innovative, unique, and usual wares beneath a half-mile of tents.
Since E and Mr B had some "business" to attend to, Miss M and I decided to have a Girls Day of shopping and browsing. We met up with Smiley Willie who was happy and still smiling about being the only dude out with the ladies shopping.
We were excited to visit our friend Sticker's person at her booth La Familia Green. Her pup Stickers, and her cat Lemur, are often the muses for many of her cards. And she is just so, so creative and funny with perfect, modern cards for any occasion. If you haven't seen her shop, you can click here 
We were also super-excited to see Miss M's special friend with her shop The Soap Distillery. She handmakes small-batch soap inspired by specially-crafted wines  cocktails: absinthe, gin, pumpkin ipa, and margarita to name a few. The soap doesn't smell like alcohol, but the fragrance notes of the drink. Miss M's special friend and alcohol are two of her favorite things; hence, I was not able to handle her excitement and the camera well enough to get photos. You can read more about the Soap Distillery here which are fun to buy for yourself or small gifts. We bought Bourbon!
Meanwhile...back at home E and Mr. B were having a very important Sunday afternoon meeting. 
Can anyone guess what it was about? (Here is a hint!)

Deja Vu! But, with Mr. B.

Football is a major factor in our home as well. That might be a given since our boys are named after football players. :-)

Since Miss M loves booze, be sure you keep the soap out of reach! :)
