It’s another snowy, sales grey Monday in Chicago and if that didn’t depress you enough, we’ve got a bunch of great photos of our fave athletes and their WAGs basking in the sun on exotic vacations and swooning over Valentines Day gifts, just to make your Monday morning suck even harder.

Just kidding. Well, sort of. Let’s be honest. This Chicago winter has been nothing short of horrible. If you are lucky enough to be in Chicago right now, just looking out your window may put you into a state of depression, as we get pounded with the latest round of snow.  So let’s live vicariously through our Chicago athletes and their WAGs, shall we? Let’s get started – lots to cover this week.

While buddies Kane, Sharp, Handzus, Hossa and Toews (to name only a few) were dueling their butts off in Sochi, many of the Hawks continued on their mid-season vacations and weren’t shy bragging posting about them. Andrew Shaw Surfing

Andrew Shaw and his girlfriend Chaunette continue to lead the charge, posting more great pics this week from what we believe is still Hawaii?…We love this picture of the two catching some waves.  “What’s up dude! @chaunetteb”



The adorable couple shared this picture on Valentine’s day. “After snorkeling with the the turtles @chaunetteb” Honestly, are they living a movie? What girl doesn’t want to snorkel with turtles in Hawaii on Valentine’s Day? Take some notes guys…..




Meanwhile, the Bickells enjoyed their time off together in Cabo.

What’s better than Valentine’s Day on vacation? Adding a birthday into the mix! Amanda Bickell celebrated her birthday and turned 30 this Valentine’s Day.




“And yes you can golf in a bathing suit and barefoot in Cabo haha. El Dorado anything goes :)”







“Feeding the sea lions with good friends and my wife @abickell”




Apparently Brandon Saad and Nick Leddy spent their vaca in Cancun…




The beautiful Elina Casell Hjalmarsson shared this picture of her nursery before heading back to Chicago. “Swedish baby room done more pics on blog! Website in bio, time to head back to Chicago with Ida <3”




She also posted this collage on Valentine’s Day. “This was waiting outside my door. I have the best hubby in the world even if he’s in Russia playing the Olympics he doesn’t forget me on valentines!! Love you so much! Best 7 years of my life! <3 <3 #love #valentine #forever”

Martellus Bennett is at it again. We all know Martellus loves making nicknames, like the “Black Unicorn.” And apparently Kyle Long has been honored with a nickname of his own…


Some of our Bears WAGs shared a few more pictures from their Valentine’s weekend. Michi Marshall Instagramed a picture of these amazing roses. “WOW! Most #beautiful Long Stem Roses I’ve EVER seen! They are 5ft tall and REAL!! Colombian #PassionStems from Mariano’s”





Jay Cutler made sure to take care of his expecting wife, Kristin Cavallari... “Happy <3 day”





KCav does her best to look like your typical housewife in this picture. “Making wild mushroom and asparagus risotto”






KCav keeps her followers happy by posting selfies. This one she took generated 27,995 likes on Instagram. We wonder if Jay waited until Saturday night to take her out for Valentine’s Day? Saturday night. “Date night”







Kristin brought it full circle this week and posted another selfie of her growing belly! “Baby bump getting BIG.”



Well divas, that’s all we have for you today. We’re hoping by next week the snow will stop falling and we’ll have above freezing temperatures… A girl can dream, right..? Have a great week and we’ll see you back here next Monday!
