Things have been crazy lately, so it was nice to get these after coming back to Fayetteville from Christmas holiday. We left for Chicago the following morning (Wednesday, Dec. 29).
|The last time I was supposed to get pink roses, they arrived red.|
Chicago Day One
The trip started off with tons of walking around the Magnificent Mile area. It was pretty chilly, and there was still a lot of snow on the ground.
We ate lunch at Food Life in the Water Tower shops. It was pretty cool. I definitely recommend it for a fairly quick and delicious lunch.
I have a thing about anything related to communication. Must. take. photo. with.
See? I wasn't joking.
This was on the way back to the hotel before dinner. We were getting tired.
Who orders the veggie plate as an appetizer at a pizza place? We do!
Obviously health was the main concern...
This was our FIRST pizza of the trip. Yes, I said first (meaning there was another). This one was from Pizzeria Uno. It's a cute little pizza place on Ohio Street I believe (that's probably not correct). It was a second location about a block away called Pizzeria Due. It's not a chain. I promise. :)

|Outside the original water tower building. |
It was one of the few buildings that survived the huge Chicago fire in the late 1800s.
|I'm shiny and full.|
After breakfast at Corner Bakery, the first thing we did was walk up to Millennium Park. It was a cold, rainy day.
|Great photo of me and some green tarp.|
|I'm not good at this "photo in the bean" thing.|
|Still not good at the "photo in the bean." I'm thinking, "Is it starting to rain hard?"|
|This is outside of Grant Park close to the Buckingham Fountain.|
|I thought this was hilarious. Obviously, it is.|
|Buckingham Fountain is not as pretty when it's off.|
|I have no clue why there is a Lincoln statue here.|
|Adam doesn't have a clue, either.|
And we made it to the Field Museum!
