The flight has been booked, the tickets purchased and reservations made! The Hubs and I are taking a trip! An actual bonafide VACATION! I’m so excited! I just wish it worked out that The Kid could join us. I know he’s having a good time at his dad’s. He called last night talking about how tan he is! I sure do miss him!

Back to our plans… we’re heading to Chicago to do something The Hubs has always wanted to do… watch the St. Louis Cardinals play here…
Wrigley
I’m not nearly as big a baseball fan as The Hubs, but I must admit…I’ve always wanted to see Wrigley Field in person. The history of that venue is so amazing… read more about it HERE. The Cardinals/Cubs rivalry is unreal and tickets sell out super fast. I am so happy we were able to get tickets for the game!

We are meeting one of The Hubs’ college friends and his family there to explore the Windy City and have copious amounts of fun.

In addition to the ballgame, we’re planning to go here…
CrownFountain
…we might go find this…
CloudGate
…and possibly visit here…
Ghirardelli's
…and maybe even here…
WillisTower
While The Hubs, his friend and I are at the game, Friend’s wife and girls are going here…
NavyPier
The Hubs and I are not real big fans of amusement parks and Friend’s wife and girls are not big fans of baseball, so it works out great that we’re doing things separately that afternoon.

The Hubs and I are going here for a romantic dinner one night…
RPM
…I’ve already made reservations! RPM Italian is owned by The Apprentice’s original winner, Bill Rancic and his wife, E! News anchor Giuliana. I’m hoping they’ll be visiting the restaurant the day we’re there…I would love to meet them! Many moons ago, when I was studying for my degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis in Broadcast Journalism, my dream was to graduate, move out to Los Angeles or even New York City to pursue a career in entertainment reporting…but, life happened. I got married (the first time) and had The Kid, so I was content working behind the scenes as a News Producer for the ABC and NBC affiliates in Little Rock for several years and then later on (a couple years after the divorce) co-anchoring our small local cable news program with The Hubs (who was just The Boyfriend at that time). Since my life got side-tracked and I wasn’t able to accomplish my plans of going to Hollywood, I’ve followed Giuliana Rancic’s career and lived vicariously through her.
E!News
She has the job I’ve always wanted! Maybe someday I can walk the red carpet and interview celebrities! Or even co-host E! News! It’s highly doubtful, but a girl can wish!

Until then…

Have you ever visited Chicago? We haven’t book a hotel yet, which one do you suggest? Are there other things we should check out while we’re there? Any cool restaurants? Or shops?

I can’t wait!

Until next time…
