Here are some highlights from our three day getaway! (We joked that by the pictures this looks like Brittnie's trip to Chicago instead of a couples trip, since a lot of the pics Brandon was taking. . . We should have had more people snap pics of the two of us!)
Saturday 9/21- Chicago day 1
Architectural boat tour
Leonida's Chocolate Shop
NBC Chicago! Had to snap a pic!
Cloud Gate in Millenium Park (aka "The Bean")
Can you find us in the reflection? Kinda like Where's Waldo...
We walked SO much that first day, a nap was in order, and apparently Brandon snapped a pic. Lovely.
Lou Malnati's Deep Dish Pizza (So. Good.) We heard this is where all the locals go, instead of Giordano's, so we decided to give it a shot. Totally worth it!
Sunday 9/22 - Chicago day 2
On our way to breakfast at Elly's Pancakes. Best. Breakfast. Ever. I would go everyday if I lived there!
Random squirrel eating a french fry
Cubs game! It looks sunny, and it was, but it was absolutely freezing. Was not prepared for the cold that day! The group behind us had earmuffs and blankets!
Dinner at Carmines. Brandon ordered a whole chicken. Not sure what he was thinking. But it was good!

Monday 9/23 - Chicago day 3
Brandon went on his own little adventure in search of donuts. I'd say he found a winner!! While he was gone, I had the privilege of meeting up with my blog buddy Gillian for a little Starbucks date! I was SO excited that we were able to meet in real life, and chat in person for a little while that morning. So fun, right? She was just as sweet in person as she appears on her blog. How did we not think to get a picture together??? Next time Gillian. Next time!
Lego Store inside the Water Tower
Last train ride on our way back to the airport. . . I guess every vacation must eventually come to an end.
It was a short, yet fabulous vacation. So thankful we were able to get away!
