A Chicago Thanksgiving

SEE Chicago: Where to Stay, Eat, and Explore in Chicago, the Windy City


This Thanksgiving was spent in the beautiful city of Chicago! Matt's step-sister and her husband live in the windy city and warmly welcomed us into their cute home for five days. While we were there we made sure to eat delicious food (umm, hello deep dish!), hit some major tourist spots (WRIGLEY! Willis Sears Tower! Second City!), and relax.

Yes, relax.

For once, I did absolutely zero work during this vacation. Okay, I sent a couple of work related emails, but I kept even those to a minimum. I actually opened my computer very rarely during the trip and mainly read when we weren't out and about (note – The Host is excellent! It took me forever to get past the first 3 chapters and then I sped through the rest).

Just 103 floors up. On a glass balcony. I could barely look down. chicago-treasure-tromp

And now I'm off to catch up on your fabulous blogs that I missed during the last week. Linked up with Loving and Tell Me About it Tuesday.
