Second City Love

I’m so tired I want to cry.  I honestly don’t know how I made it to work this morning without driving off the road, especially since I had to drive all the way to work before I got that first sweet sip of coffee in my system.  The silver lining?  My boss is OOO all week in Chicago now, haha we traded places.  Chicago was AWESOME, well the part where I wasn’t working anyway, and well worth the sleep deprivation.  I worked 10-6 on Friday, 8-4:15 on Saturday, and 8-12 on Sunday and played well into the night each night.  Exhausting. I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking.

before heading out for dinner Fri night

In front of Buckingham Fountain

hanging out at Wrigley on Sat night

Amy showed us an awesome time

We met up with Amy in Wrigleyville on Saturday night to take advantage of the Wrigleyville Block Party happening outside Cubs stadium, and it just so happened the Yankees were playing as well as Amy’s favorite band.  Dance party shenanigans and lots of beer drinking ensued.  Thanks for showing Dar and I another awesome time Amy, and introducing us to our future wedding band haha.

Rod Tuffcurls and the Bench Press

sweet dance moves

I passed out cold before midnight that night haha, only to wake up at 3 am to Dar still wide awake and watching Inception.  Talk about a weird movie to wake up in the middle of.  Uh, the next day at my training was a little rough.  Sunday, we had a little time before my 4:50 flight, and had lunch and did some more walking around.

No trip to Chicago is complete without a slice of this

Gorgeous Lake Michigan

being a dork

Ha, I actually almost missed my flight because we significantly underestimated Sunday afternoon traffic.  I made it to the airport with about 50 minutes to spare before my flight, flew through check in and security and made it to my gate just as they were starting to board.  It was stressful, but the crazy rush kept mine and Darren’s goodbye from being too sad.  A little more than six weeks until our next visit in August!

I’m off to try to figure out how to file my expense report, and to find more coffee.  If you are so inclined, full album of photos here, and fun video of Rod Tuffcurls here.
