Flower canvas tote bag from depeapa | Home at Sea print from Theater Clouds | Magnolia Bug no.6667 from Kari Herer | Turquoise Swarovski Cube necklace from Diament

Happy Friday, party people! Hubs and I are off to Chicago for a few days to see one of my dear old friends from high school. So excited!! This will be my very first trip to the Windy City – any suggestions for things we must do or see or (most importantly) eat? I’d better bring my fanny pack and giant map because I’m gearing up to be a tourist extraordinaire.

    Chicago is one of my favorite cities! This is a great time of year to go! You must go to the top of the old Sears tower (worth the cost). And a freebie that’s AMAZING is Millenium Park. The bean is the coolest thing around. Great for photos!

    That necklace is really cool. I hope you have a fantastic time in Chicago! I love that city and I think the best way to experience it is to walk around — and eat — as much as possible!
