Surprise Trip To Chicago!!!

1/07/2013

Well, that hubby of mine did it again! He is SO good at surprising me here lately! We decided to plan a weekend getaway with our best friends Rick and Megan! I thought we decided to go to Louisville, Ky since it was close to home with some great things to do but much to my surprise there was a BIG change of plans! That sneaky hubby of mine....

We're going to Chicago!!! 
I seriously could NOT be more excited to go! Ecstatic is an understatement!
We're staying at the Hard Rock Hotel! Justin confirmed our reservations last night! We have a city view room that's AMAZING! AHHHH!! I'm just so giddy! We already have a list of "must see" places thanks to my dad and other people with great recommendations! But I would love to hear more if you guys have been! 

Not only is this our first trip to Chicago, but it's also our first "couples" trip! I'm so excited that our friends are getting to come with us! I'm also BEYOND excited that I have my new camera to take awesome pictures with! Can you guys tell I'm excited?! We're heading out Friday morning January 18th! 

Have you guys been?!! :)

  6. You HAVE to go to Sarkis in the Park in Lincoln Park for breakfast. It is nothing fancy but I dream about their cheesy hash browns and Loretta. Have a great trip!

  23. Lol! It cracks me up every time people get so excited about visiting Chicago. I live like 50 minutes from the city so it's not a big deal to me because I've been umpteen times :) exciting for yu though :) but.. If you like pizza eat Geno's East or Gioridano's ... So delicious! Water Tower place is fun to shop... Stories and stories of stores :) not sure if you like to shop at Old Navy, but there's a 3-story ON also :) hmm.... Ice skating on state street is always fun too!!

    Have fun!

  25. Hi! I just found you through Ashley's blog (It Is What You Make It) trooper post. I love finding Christian bloggers for one but it's even better when it's a Christian blogger that also has a husband with the same profession as your husband (or in my case fiance).
    I'm a little short on time right now but I'm going to be back to look around your blog soon!

    Happy Tuesday!
