Chicago Style Fun

DSCN2328Kyle and I didn’t have much of a chance to celebrate our wedding anniversary in July. We went out, but we usually like to try to get away somewhere. So, we just got away this past weekend, thanks to my awesome parents (love you mom and dad!), we were able to escape to Chicago for the weekend without the little one.  We stayed outside of the city about 25 miles, so the easiest way to get into the city was to take public transportation. We found ways to occupy our time while waiting for the Metra to arrive as you can tell from this photo.

DSCN2314You can’t go to Chicago and not eat a slice of deep dish pizza, right? We ate at Giordano’s and it was fantastic!

DSCN2326This is us in front of “The Bean”. It’s located in Millennium Park which has a lot of architectural elements. You can’t tell very well from the picture, but it actually reflects part of the city skyline. It’s cool, I think there’s probably better ways the city  could have spent money, but it is what it is.

One of my husband’s dreams in life is to try and visit every major league baseball stadium and he had never been to Wrigley before so we took advantage of the fact the Cubs had a game the weekend we were visiting.

DSCN2342We couldn’t have driven through and not stopped at Ikea. We did this on the way home and were super excited about it if you can’t tell from the photo.  If you’ve never been to an Ikea store before, I highly recommend going. I got so many great ideas, going to start saving to hopefully do some cool things in our basement.

It was so nice to get away for the weekend just the two of us. I have a truly amazing husband and am so thankful the Lord brought our paths together.
