I love the theatre, I have since I was a little kid performing in church Christmas pageants. Unfortunately being in Indiana we tend to have to rely on touring shows to come through town to see any of the big-name shows. I've been fortunate enough to have seen several fantastic shows including CATS, Phantom of the Opera and Spamalot. However I still have a list of shows I desperately want to see (and whether it's here in Indy or I'm lucky enough to travel to NYC or some other location, I will check these off my list!)
I went to Chicago over the weekend with my husband, his parents, his brother and his fiance. I've only been to Chicago a couple of times so I was excited to spend the weekend there and see some of the sights (and go shopping!)
We took the train from South Bend to Chicago, it was super easy and fun! We got off near Millenium Park so we visited "The Bean" and then walked around till it was time for us to check into our hotel.
Taylor (my brother-in-law) and his fiance Morgan
Terry (my father-in-law), Chuancey and I
We saw these ladies filming part of a music video in front of the Bean, it was cold out so they had to be freezing in those outifts
Solar powered trash compactors!
Inside Macy's in the Walnut Room restaurant, they have a HUGE Christmas tree that went up like 5-6 stories
We had lunch at Ed Debevics which is an experience, don't let the retro diner fool you!
Tweeter (my mother-in-law) and I ended up cutting apart from the group to go shopping! First stop, a two-story Forever 21!
Next stop, Watertower Plaza to see the Lego Store
Dinner at Webber Grill
Our hotel, the beds were soooooo comfortable!
The next day included more shopping and visiting Navy Pier
They even had horse-drawn carriage rides along the pier
