I had a doctor's appointment in downtown Chicago early Saturday morning (hey 8am IS early when you're on a permanent vacation), so we were up and out the door. We spent the day shopping "The Miracle Mile" and trying on lots of clothes at H&M, Filene's Basement, and Nordstrom Rack. The day just seemed to get colder and more cloudy as it went on, so we stopped for an extended lunch at Elephant & Castle, a fun little Irish pub.
We spent the afternoon napping (as all my afternoons now are spent) and then had a fun girls night out on Saturday, having a wonderful dinner and enjoying a jazz band at Pete Miller's in Evanston. Sunday, we slept in a little and enjoyed some nice girl before we packed Katelyn up and spent the day at the Field Museum. Okay, so before you start your rash judgements about what losers we are for being in a great town like Chicago and spending a day at a museum, let me tell you a little something...the Field Museum is awesome! Even if you're not a dork like me who had book reading contests every summer...competing with myself.
The Field Museum has tons of great exhibits about ancient Egypt, including real mummies. And lots of exhibits about past civilizations and...Sue, the T-Rex! Sue is the biggest and most complete t-rex skeleton they have ever found. And she was found in South Dakota...who knew?
After spending some QT (quality time) with our new friend Sue, we dropped Katelyn off at the airport for a Sunday night flight home. But God had another plan...her flight got cancelled so she could spend one more evening with us! Well, technically because of mechanical problems, but that's God code for more girl time. We finally dropped Kates off on Monday morning and then spent the rest of the rainy, cold day in bed watching quality cinema like "Sex and the City: The Movie."
classy and fabulous.
