Weekend trip!

This weekend I packed myself up and headed to Chicago for a quick 36 hour visit with the little sis and a bridal shower for her! I can hardly believe a year has gone by since she and her fiance got engaged and the wedding is fast approaching (the end of the month).

We got to run around and do various and sundry wedding errands and she appeased me by taking me to Trader Joe’s for some much-needed tasty snacks to stockpile at home. (since Kansas City has no TJ’s which is another story for another post!)

One of my favorite stops during the errands portion of the weekend was the Chicago Cultural Center. I hadn’t had reason to go before, but we went to grab some city brochures for out of town guests and Beth showed me the beautiful windows:

Saturday night was the shower. Managed to grab one pic of me and the little sis after the champagne toast!

And really, what trip to Chicago is complete without a visit to Wrigley Field? (though I admit this was just a driveby!)

    You know, that’s the first time that I’ve seen the inside of the cultural center, and I lived there! It certainly is a wonderful place. Full of Jimmy John’s, drunk depressed cubs fans, Chase Debit machines, and, well, the lake – I suppose that is worth mentioning?

    Has your sister told you about the 44th Ward? It’s a gourmet grilled cheese restaurant!
