Boo. This week flew by. We are sad that it is Friday and our STAYCATION is over, but I gotta say…it was such a fun time. It turned out better than I had hoped and was truly a vacation. While I look forward to traveling on a plane, train or automobile soon, this suits us right now. If I’m honest with myself, Sean and I are very ambitious travelers, that pack the days full of sight-seeing, learning, tours and stops. We don’t take breathers and that wouldn’t work with Miss K right now (at least she wouldn’t enjoy herself, which is paramount if we’re going to be shelling out big bucks on a vacation).
All in all, this was memorable, super cheap and relaxing. I’m really happy we had the chance to spend the whole week together and experience parts of it with friends and family. Thanks for following our travels!
Today was Chicago. The “windy city” and also a city I am dying to visit. I just need to hire a pilot to take us around the nation for a week. Done.
We watched a movie that takes place in Chicago. We love this film (Dustin Hoffman is genius) and watch it over and over.
(Seriously, this was the week of movies and games. I think we watched 14 and played 5 games of Monopoly so far)
We were dying to have a authentic Chicago dog and found the perfect place by our house:
We met the Browns there and they were sportin’ their CUBS love:
Can you say YUM?:
They have tons of Chicago paraphernalia, old newspapers and pictures. It’s pretty cool:
We came home, relaxed (I took an afternoon nap, which NEVER happens), read and hit up dinner at Chick-Fil-A, which has nothing to do with Chicago at all. But hey….it’s vacation and we wanted it. That’s reason enough, right?
We are off to put the baby to sleep and play a little more MONOPOLY. Our idea of finishing 8 games makes me laugh now as we are only on game 5. These are taken a LONG time, but Sean has won 3 and I have won 1. Boo.
The STAYCATION is over, but we had a grand time and would recommend this to anyone!
Thanks for visiting back each day, leaving fun and festive comments and enjoying our trip with us. Comments on any of the STAYCATION posts are open until tomorrow night at 5pm, so live it up and I will pull a name and announce it on Monday! GET EXCITED!
“Normal” blog posts will resume, effective tomorrow. Unless I’m exceptionally lazy, which has been the trend this week.
But, I’m hitting up some estate sales, so I’m hoping to find some steals!
