I don't have much to share about my trip to Chicago other than it went by way too fast.
We drove 5 hours Friday morning to get there; took a train into the city from the little town we were staying at; walked the "magnificent mile" (although it felt more like 10 miles); did very little shopping (that's why you don't go with your husband); took the train back and crashed at the hotel.
One thing that really caught my eye though were the windows for this really neat clothing shop.
How can a quilter pass this up?
Then, of course, there was Marilyn.
I didn't get close enough to look up her skirt though. There were a lot of men having their pictures taken right under her and it was kind of funny. Personally, I thought this statue just didn't fit in the area, but what do I know?
Saturday we visited friends who had just moved into the area and had a new baby boy just a couple weeks ago. Then the main reason we were in Chicago was to go to a friend's son's wedding, so that took up pretty much all of Saturday.
Up bright and early on Sunday and headed home.
I think I will make plans to go back to Chicago with my daughters so that we can do some damage where shopping is concerned. Of course, I did break the bank at the Ghiradelli store. You know....quilting and chocolate go together.
