Hello and HAPPY Monday! We took a weekend trip to Chicago this weekend and although we don’t want to see the inside of a car for a LOOOOOOONG time, we had an absolutely wonderful time!
On Friday morning we hit the road with my parents to celebrate the marriage of Raf, the foreign exchange student from Brazil we hosted back in 1992 (when I was 4 years old). So basically, my big brother :)
There was a donut shop called Glazed and Infused next-door to our hotel, so can you guess the first thing I did when we arrived?
Besides all of our favorite restaurants, the biggest thing I miss about living in Milwaukee is having access to a Crate and Barrel. I could spend all day in that store. I found a few good buys and also got a maternity coat for winter at Pea in a Pod.
You never know how an evening with a toddler is going to go, but Eleanor did great! My dad was a good sport and played with her in the hallway where she found a SUPER COOL ramp to go up and down over and over and over again ;)
Then it was time to pack up and begin the long trek back to Omaha! Eleanor did great in the car again – I told Jeff we need to be writing all of this wonderful behavior down to remind us when she’s an unruly teenager. We’ll at least put in a good word to Santa Claus ;)
How was your weekend?
Have you started your holiday shopping yet?
