I went to Chicago in August with #2 for his business… Here are a few highlights from our trip.
We stayed at the Drake Hotel.. this is their Gold Coast room.. This photo does not do this beautiful hotel ballroom justice.
I'm serious.. he loves that bed..
He was fascinated by the hotel mini bar…
But not so impressed by their prices.. 6.00 for a king size bag of M&M's!
We ate breakfast every morning at The Drake
Not too shabby.. but pretty flippin' expensive ..
59.00 for a breakfast buffet? I don't think we are at Shoney's anymore!
Speaking of food…
We ate at The Weber Grill (it never disappoints your tummy)
Pizza at Giordonos
Oh My Goodness… Lunch at Da Lobsta
I saw a pair of 3300.00 Christian Louboutin sparkly shoes.
**I apparently didn't look like the kind of girl that would wear Louboutin's.. because the sales people didn't even say Hi to me in this store.
A wedding on a Tuesday? Why not?
Short Girl Problems.. the make up/shaving mirror is too high up.
I rode the Merta… way past my exit.
I was in a car that was hit by a dump truck. See that big green truck.. it side-swiped our Taxi.
We met lots of interesting people.. and most of them were our Lyft or Uber drivers. This guy cut hair for a living in Jordan, but here in America he drives an Uber car. He wants to own his own barber shop. He thinks he will be able to have his own shop in the next 18 months. It was the highlight of our trip to meet people like this..
Here's our mobile office.. while we were waiting for our plane.
