Back From The Windy City!


So I was late with the other post but here is a quick recap of our trip to the Windy City!


Well, wouldn't you know it.........it SNOWED while I was in Chicago!!!!!!! What is up with Spring this year. Course then Sunday the day we left was gorgeous and sunny. Just perfect......

You would not believe how windy it was when I took this picture!!! I could barely stand!

Sunday, we met up with DH's old roommate and had lunch with him at a fabulous restaurant overlooking Michigan Ave. I can't wait to go back there......The Grand Lux restaurant.....definitely head there if you are in the city! Faux painting everywhere, very french in feel with wrought iron banisters, Murano glass lights, colorful fun banquettes, etc.......This place was rocking though they were SO busy!


We checked out the American Girl store there & boy are we going to be in trouble in a few years. Course Little assistant #1 already has her first American girl doll courtsey of our neice & nephew. They sent her Itty Bitty Baby for Christmas! This time in the store though all she wanted was lip gloss, can you believe it!!! DH was relived to have gotten out of there for under $5!!
Realized how much I really do miss the city & am already busy planning a summer trip over tgo to Navy Pier, Lincoln Park Zoo & Much more!!


So back to reality this week, have tons to do.....so better get busy.At least it looks & feels like spring here today in Michigan! My tulips are coming up and I see all the buds on the trees........sigh!
