The Windy City of Chicago...

This weekend, I had a girls weekend in Chicago to see my good friends Diane and Jenell.  Diane lives in Chicago and Jenell lives in Portland, Oregon.  We hadn't seen each other in over a year.

Friday night, I got in about 6 but then took another hour to get to Diane's apartment.  He had dinner at an awesome sushi restaurant and came back to watch a movie (aka for Stephanie to sleep).  It was midnight, my time, by that point and I was pretty tired.

Saturday, we were busy.  We visited some in the morning before heading out to Brunch.  We did some discovering of Chicago before hitting up Billy Elliot, an off broadway show, in the afternoon. Saturday evening, we went out for girly drinks at a wine bar before hitting up a tapas restaurant for dinner.  Saturday late night, we went to Second City comedy show. 

Before leaving on Sunday, we did an architectural boat tour.  We went to a delicious brunch again before heading off to the airport.

This is the new Trump tower:
The Sear's or Willis Tower:

and finally.... (in case you are wondering):
It was such an excellent weekend and I'm so glad I got to visit with these amazing girls.  I will post more pics later.  We all took different ones on our cameras in order to avoid asking people to take them with 3 different cameras. 

Thanks for hosting us, Diane, and planning so many fun things for us to do.
