Kiss the sky

During our last few hours in Chicago, on a sunny Sunday afternoon, we had a cocktail at The Signature Room on Ninety-fifth. We took and elevator that goes straight to the 95th floor and doesn’t stop.

We had drinks for charity, a portion of the drink cost goes to the charity of the day. I had a martini and it was delicious.

You think this view is crazy, you should check out the ladies room! The floor to ceiling windows are insane!

On Saturday night, after dinner, we checked out Blue Chicago! The live Blues music was awesome and we had a great time.

I left Blue Chicago with CDs and I get to re-live the night when ever I listen to them!

A walk in the park

A visit to Chicago would not be complete without going to the beautiful Millennium Park.

The tulips were in full bloom and were absolutely gorgeous. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers and these did not disappoint.

It’s not hard to see what is so awesome about this bean. You can stand back and see the skyline as well as the clouds pass you by. You can also walk under it and see some great distorted views of yourself. We chose to get up close and see ourselves in the bean.

Want to escape?

I have a small obsession with fire escapes. I guess I watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Pretty Woman too many times. I always wanted a fire escape, it would look a little silly on our ranch style home. I settle for taking photos of my favorites.

Could you imagine if you actually had to use one of these! Holy cow!

The architecture in Chicago is beautiful! I love old buildings and all of the classic details that have been preserved though out the years.

Do you have any favorite buildings or architectural details?

The Blue Line

One of my favorite parts of going to other cities is riding trains! We have trains in LA, of course, but there is something fun about public transportation everywhere but home.

I would much rather be sitting on a train than on the 405 parking lot every morning. What about you?

Chicago!

This April, I went on a girl’s trip to Chicago! You may remember the trip I took last year to San Francisco for Cecilia’s Bachelorette weekend, well this time the trip was for Sarah’s birthday! Chicago is one of my favorite cities so I was thrilled to join in on the fun!

We spent three days taking on The Windy City and I think we did pretty well. We had lots of great food and so many laughs! It was a fantastic time and in the next few posts I will share some of the highlights… Cheers!
