Last week was my very first time to the Mid-west. I must admit it'd never been at the top of my list--but my oh my there was a little gem to be found there. I went there with no expectations and I was blown away with what a great city Chicago is.

Cathy{my beautiful friend}showed us all that Chi-town had to offer. The architecture, the food, the shopping--oh the shopping--thank you Magnificent Mile, were all wonderful!

Seems like we picked quite the weekend to go too. Mr. Obama himself, whom might I add lives down the street from Cathy, was there celebrating his birthday with Oprah-whom also happens to live in Cathy's hood. Transformers 3 was filming while we were there, unfortunately no spotting of Shia Labeouf. What a shame. Last but not least Grant Park was hopping with the Lollapalooza festival. I'd say Chicago was the place to be while we were there.

It was a great time with my favorite ladies. We ate deep dish pizza until our pants might pop, got orange fingers from eating the infamous Garrett's popcorn, laughed, walked, shopped, and just enjoyed soaking up the city.

Here's a little video of Betsy & I watching Mr. President come into town.

  4. I want to go to Chicago!!!

    And followed by President Obama!! Lucky!

    I had to laugh that you were in one area of the city just to get a cupcake. My sister was visiting this last week and we drove across Houston to go to a cupcake boutique. Some things you just make sacrifices for.
