On Friday I flew to Chicago to meet David. I got there late Friday night so we ordered room-service at the W Lakeshore where we stayed. If you are there- have the three cheese grilled cheese sandwich. With arugula and bacon it was pretty incredible and came with a side of truffle fries. Yum! Our room had a fabulous view of the lake…
Saturday we slept in and then headed out to the Lincoln Park Zoo. First of all admission is free (yay) and the polar bear was incredible. It took running leaps off of the land part of the habitat and tackled toys in the water. The polar bear was huge, powerful and graceful. I could have watched it all day.
After a late lunch and a long walk across Chicago we took a nap, obvi. And took silly pics lounging around.
We rallied, gussied up, and headed out to dinner. After dinner we sat on the patio at the hotel, grabbed a drink in the bar and headed to bed.
Sunday morning we had brunch outside with one of David’s friends. I love brunch. I seriously dream about brunch. We visited the sky deck at Willis Tower and thought I was a bit giddy and jittery at first it was pretty awesome to just stand, jutting out into the sky.
