So let me start by confessing something. My running shoes never left my suitcase while we were away. I had good intentions of running along the lake like I use to do when I was working in Chicago but we had about 48 hours and a lot crammed into our schedule and they just never made the cut. For that I feel terrible. BUT..
We did a lot of walking. After getting in on Thursday afternoon, we promptly walked up to Michigan Ave to do a little shopping. I bought a few things I wouldn’t normally buy so we’ll see if they ever make it out of my closet. S always prompts me to push my boundaries a little so I gave in. We’re on vacation afterall.
Thursday night, S and I went out with my cousin. She showed us a great time. And yes, I know, she’s gorgeous. 3 bars later (2 rooftop), we were back to the hotel and in bed for what I would call pure bliss. 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep. I’m estimating I haven’t done that in well over a year and a half.
Friday, when we finally did get out of bed at 10:30, and now you know why the running shoes didn’t make it out, we headed down to Wrigley for a Cubs vs. Yankees game. I was sure we’d pay tons of money for those tickets. Turns out $32 will get you into the game. Not bad. Stayed for 8 innings, then had an early dinner at a place called DMK, a little burger bar around Wrigley. Pretty good. We took a cab down to Wrigley and as we passed the Trump Tower, I snapped this picture. Turned out pretty well.
Friday night was the main event, TBS and Twix hosted a Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, we went to see Joel McHale, host of the Soup on E!. He was great. He talked a lot about his 2 sons which made me miss E even more.
My family sent me some great photos of him having a blast while we were gone. Good to know he was in good hands.
