Midwest Adventures

This evening Tony and I are hopping on a plane to Chicago!!  I am beside myself with excitement...focusing on work is hit or miss this morning, which is fine by me.  I've wanted to visit Chicago for as long as I can remember, and after a few failed attempts with friends over the years, my little Midwest dream is finally coming true.  Thank you, handsome boyfriend!  Tony has a work conference to attend next week, so we'll have a little him + me + Chicago time this weekend and then I'll be let loose on the city Monday and Tuesday while Tony's holed up in a conference room.  But, we get our evenings...and Tuesday evening is shaping up to be phenomenal: Chicago (the band!) will be performing in the Navy Pier area (I do believe) along with unlimited food and drink for the conference attendees and their guests.  Thank goodness my parents passed along their love of Classic Rock to me.  Come Wednesday morning, I will hop on a train to Ann Arbor, MI where my mother will be anxiously awaiting my arrival so we can spend the remainder of the week with my Grammy and Uncle.  I'm looking forward to used book shopping with my Mom and Grammy, evening walks around the neighborhood, and catching up with family.  

I am unbelievably excited for this vacation! 


  1. I'm SO jealous!!! I've always wanted to go to Chicago too so I'll live vicariously through your pictures =)
    Have fun!

  2. This sounds like a PERFECT week!! I love Chicago and can't wait for the opportunity to take my husband and even though I'm a Purdue grad (and therefore required to hate all things Ann Arbor), I dream of calling Ann Arbor home. :) Enjoy your vacation!

  3. Jealous!! You are running around the city right now...and I bet you are having a blast!

  4. So fun! I LOVED Chicago when I was there in March! and can I just say I fell in love with northern Colorado when I was there this week. The national park was incredible! And then I drove up to Wyoming and passed through Ft. Collins. Thought of you and work with the fires in the area.


Thanks for stopping by!
