Chicago…are you ready?


Ready or not…Chicago here we come! 

A couple of friends from church and I are getting away overnight tomorrow night.
Oh yeah!   Time for a lil’ R&R.

Can’t wait…

taking Metra into the city --
no parking hassles – gotta love that :)…


good food -- Millers Pub and Weber Grill


wandering more…

learning to use the subway and/or el..…

getting lost  learning new routes….

Trader Joes

enjoying a free night’s hotel stay –
thank you Sage Hospitality

Crate and Barrel outlet

more wandering still…

These two ladies are a hoot so it should be a fun 32 hours.  I’ll tell you all about it when we get back.


  1. Whoot Whoot!!! I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve!!! So glad for Joyce's nav skills cause I've never used public transportation ;)

  2. Wow, Chicago twice in a month? Impressive. If you're going to the CB Outlet on North Ave you should try Uncle Julio's. We love that mexican restaurant.


  3. Hey! Hey!! There will be NO getting lost, young lady!! :)

    See you soon... after I go back to sleep! See what you are doing to me.... ;)

  4. What fun!!! Don't forget to come home! Hope you have a great time!

  5. Hope you have so much fun, and be careful! I sound like a mom. I've been here in the Midwest for 15 years and NEVER have gone to Chicago. I am still enjoying living in the quite, agricultural belt after years of living in Dallas.
