C h i c a g o // iphone edition
Here are all my favorite iphone pictures from Chicago. First of all, one of my favorite things to do when I go on vacation is to eat all the yummy food!!! I always do my research and in this case, Stan's Donuts had very high reviews and I totally understand why. That old fashioned glazed donut? Oh my. I'm suddenly hungry for one just thinking about it ;) And I got another filled with biscoff and banana. Ahhhhh. I want another one haha. I made sure to document those suckers thoroughly too.
Also, I'll never understand why Spokane doesn't have a Chick fil-a. I mean seriously. It's fast food, it should be everywhere. I love that place. The fries and the shakes, just yum. I think I am seriously hungry writing this haha.
On one of the days, we went into the city to shop the Magnificent Mile. If I were rich, this place would be heaven. But even for someone like me, it was a lot of fun. First, we walked into the MAC store where Alyse and I browsed all the fun makeup and where one of the girls working there totally complimented my hair! This stuff never happens to me, but it did IN THE MAC STORE. DOWNTOWN CHICAGO. I was flattered :) I sampled MAC's ruby woo red lip stick and then we left the store and my lipstick stayed on pretty much the rest of the day. I should probably just pay the $20 and get that lipstick but I'm kind of cheap.
Next, we walked into F21 and I found that lovely hat on sale and so I bought it and I still love it. Having all that time to just pamper myself without any kids felt amazing haha.
Our first evening there, we rode our bikes everywhere and we came upon Milennium Park where they were having a concert in the park and it was packed. I think Chicago is like a dream come true, especially in the summer. Everyone was outside, happy and enjoying the weather and all the events the city had to offer. We told people we wanted to live here, even if it was temporary, and they all told us to come back in the winter, we might have a different opinion of the place. And you know what, I think they're right ;) I'm sure all that wind mixed with cold can get a little unbearable.
A big shout out to Alyse for always obliging when I asked her to take our picture, I especially love the pictures of Steve and I in front of the Bean. And a HUGE thank you to Steve's parents for watching our boys. They took such great care of them that I don't think they missed us at all. And honestly, I didn't ever worry about them which is such a blessing. I can't wait to go on a trip like this again!!!
