Chicago, Chicago!

Wow- my trip to Chicago way exceeded my expectations for what fun vacation could be, and I had forgotten how much a great weekend away can make you feel brand new (especially for us moms- it is so needed.)

Seeing Oprah and Steadman while having dinner on Michigan Avenue? Check.
Midnight dancing in front of the fountains in Millennium Park? Check.
Shopping all day in Wicker Park and Bucktown? Check.
Crashing a party, staying out until 3 am and laughing so hard that you cry? Check, check and check.
And that was only the tip of the iceberg.
Here are a few photos from my trip- Dane was the BEST host ever...and how cute and stylish is his pad? Ugh...I would like to go back right now please.


  1. Yay! I LIVE HERE and have NEVER seen Oprah OR Steadman. Glad you had fun in my hometown!!!

  2. I know right??? She even had secret service with her!

  3. I.LOVE.CHICAGO!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've vacationed there on 3 seperate occessions have fallen in love more each time.

    Your post is a reminder and nudge that I must return!!

    best - d.

    post script: don't forget, be awesome!

  4. I love it too- I lived there for three years, but I probably enjoyed it more just visiting!
