We were going to go to Nashville because we haven't been....but then the forecast called for rain....so after chatting with my friend from out of town and finding out there was a big weekend planned....we went to Chicago!!! We had a such a great weekend! We love Chicago, especially the pizza and shopping! Alright, alright...on to the pictures:
Since it was extremely last minute, we wanted to stay at a hotel on Friday and Saturday so we weren't intruding on our friends. We tried out a new hotel this time (Intercontinental) and it was in a great location and pretty nice. BUT still not my favorite that we have stayed in. I did love how we could see the beautiful blue water and beaches from our hotel room!
Friday night, we wanted to try out a new restaurant.....we chose Lawry's The Prime Rib. WE both LOVE prime rib and man was it delicious!!! The service was a bit weird, but I loved that the butcher cut your piece of prime rib in front of you! Yum Yum!
Saturday afternoon, Derek and I tried out a new pizza place (deep-dish of course!) and went shopping most of the day! Ahh heaven! Giordano's may be my new fav in Chicago!
Saturday night, our friends, Emily and Nick, had some fun-times planned by renting a trolley. The trolley made about 3 stops at bars in different neighborhoods throughout Chicago. It was such a great way to visit different parts of the city! It was a super fun night!
Thanks Emily for letting us stay and come last minute =) WE had a blast!
Hope you had a great weekend too!
