A tribute to dance, running and all things that require laces... but really the nonsensical ramblings of my blonde mind

Sharing a bit of home
So... once again, its been awhile (again) since I have posted. Its a tough time of the year.. with all the holidays and such. BUT.. I wanted to share a little trip that Jay and I took last week. We headed to IL for a vacation in my stomping grounds. Chicago! Jay had been there before... but this time we did the whole, "thats my high school" "thats where I did ____" "thats where I used to live" "thats where...." and so much more.
We started the trip with dinner at Portillo's. Yumm..... Portillo's. Best known for some seriously yummy Italian Beef.
The next day, we headed downtown for some time at the German Market, dinner at Miller's Pub and the symphony!
The next day, Jay and I headed back downtown for a day at the aquarium. I loved going there as a kid, so it was fun to share that excitement with Jay!

The last full day we had in IL, we headed back downtown again to spend time with Miss Claire. She calls Chicago home now... so it was great to catch up with her!! We spent the day wandering around the city... and finished the trip off with a dinner at Gino's East (yum pizza!) with Miss Fujii! Drinks followed with Miss Eileen. It was a great trip!!
