Chi-Town

Chi-Town…Chi-Town

My BIG 30 has come and gone but i’m still reeling from the excitement and fun of it all. My husband surprised me with a trip to Chicago and it was AMAZEBALLS! We had so much fun…we had so much food…and so much adventure. Chicago is now on my top 10 list of favorite places in the U.S.A. to visit.

I wanted to give all my y’all a BTS (behind the scenes) look of how our time was spent as well as give you some ideas for good food and entertainment places to visit if you ever find yourself in Chicago. My first word of advice is to download YELP. If you’re a foodie like I am, this app is for you.

The trip started out bumpy. We didn’t know that there were two airports in the city and just assumed we were going to O’Hare. So we got a hotel by O’Hare airport only to land at Midway airport (45 minutes from O’Hare). Our rental car had us arriving the next day so the car was not ready…sigh! We were tired. But we kept a good attitude and got everything sorted out.

After all that mess, I needed retail therapy!!! SHOPPING TIME!

We went on the Magnificent Mile and found some great items at H&M, Zara and Forever21. We also went to the Hancock Center Observatory that day and saw the perfect view of the city. Take a look at our pics and I also listed all my favorite spots in the city. Comment below and let me know what spots you visited this summer and what some of your favorite places are in Chicago. We plan on going again summer 2016.

Thank you to all who texted me food, shopping and entertainment spots while I was traveling (especially my Marriage Group wives). You are the real superhero.
