Oh Chicago, how do I even begin to say how much we adored our trip there.  It was cold, yes very cold, but that didn't damper our spirits one bit.  We walked the city and enjoyed every moment of it.  I loved seeing the bean and visiting the Art Institute.  Both incredible!  We popped into bhldn and I kind of wanted to move right in.  Such a pretty store filled with the most gorgeous dresses.  And one of the highlights was walking down to Navy Pier.  A spot where my now 97 year old grandpa met my grandma in 1944.  WOW!  We also spent two days in St. Joseph, Michigan.  Such a cute little town and we met the nicest people.  Oh gosh, and I almost forgot to talk about RPM in Chicago!  Ummmm I'm like a huge fan of Giuliana Rancic.  I think she is absolutely the cutest, so I knew we just had to go to her and her husband's restaurant.  It did not disappoint.  The food was delicious and the atmosphere was amazing!  I mean, we went there at 10pm on a Tuesday night (10pm is my normal bedtime, so I couldn't even believe we were going to dinner at that time) and the place was p a c k e d!  Like crazy packed.  It was definitely worth the late night trip...yum!  Check out a few pics from our trip.  I seriously can't wait for a return visit to the midwest.
