Chicago

Kelly & Frank’s Wedding!

Part two of our trip to Chicago is here!  This one is all about the reason we came– Kelly & Frank’s wedding!  Also, brunch.  We returned to The Bongo Room for the third time and got to check out Duck Duck Goat!

Back in Chicago!

About week ago, we went back to Chicago to celebrate the marriage of my lifelong friend and the love of her life!  We had so much fun and confirmed that we do just love Chicago.  Before the wedding festivities, we had a day or two to ourselves sightseeing, eating (including a return trip to Girl & the Goat!), and seeing Hamilton!

Also, I have a lot to say about why editing this vlog was so difficult, but you’ll see that in my next weekend vlog.  For now, enjoy!

Travel Bug (US edition)

Three years ago, I had this temp job that hired a lot of co-op students from a local university.  One such student sat behind me and we’d chat on occasion.  She was from Ireland, studying abroad in the US.  While my summer weekends were spent escaping to the beaches of Rhode Island, she travelled the United States.  I quickly realized she’d seen more of my home country than I had!

So, I’ve had this running list of US cities I wanted to visit.  It’s evolved a bit over time, but I decided to post this now, since the travel bug has hit me hard and I’m making real progress!

If the infrequency with which I’ve posted this month isn’t a clue, I’ll tell you now: March was awesome!  Usually, this is a tough, long, cold month.  Instead, it was awesome.

[1] We made cinnamon bun waffles. [2] But mostly Matt just cooked for me. [3] I dyed my hair PURPLE. [4] My best friend became a certified Body Pump instructor. [5] We went to Myers & Chang on a special date night. [6] We went to CHICAGO. [7] Where we ate the best meal ever at Girl & the Goat. [8] And the best breakfasts ever at The Bongo Room. [9] And saw some beautiful places, like Garfield Park Conservatory!

Many more Chicago pictures to come, and hopefully just as much awesome in April!  Follow me on instagram to see what I’m up to this month!
