The Windy City






Gabe and I arrived in Chicago last night and are so excited to check out the city!  A HUGE thank you to Nicole, Anna Jane, and Erin for all their fabulous recommendations.  We have so much planned for our long weekend, including shopping, sightseeing, ice skating, eating deep dish pizza, enjoying the pretty Christmas lights, and visiting friends.  I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!  What are your plans?

Jealoussssss. Have an amazing time! I absolutely adore Chicago; it's such a fun place to visit. Wish I didn't have finals or I'd take the train out -- it's gorgeous at Christmastime, right?

I LOVE Chicago!!! Make sure you go to Tempos for breakfast!!! Seriously. They only take cash and there is always a super long line. It is located on Rush, near Michigan ave.

Ooh have fun here! I miss the excitement of visiting Chicago, haha that sounds weird but after living here for 5 years the excitement has dissipated. Everything you're doing sounds like tons of fun though, so enjoy every last bit!
