Back To Reality… Again (15.10.2014)

As our fall break came to a close, we made sure to pack as many cool and interesting things in as we could (hence why I wasn’t writing any posts, because I was too busy!) I believe I left off … Continue reading

Chillin’ in Chi-Town (11.10.2014)

It’s nice to have a guide with a planned itinerary. It helps facilitate seeing the major highlights of a town that is MADE of highlights. Yesterday morning, we drove about 40 minutes into the city to spend the day touring … Continue reading

Pictures, On Pictures, on Pictures. And Food.. (11.10.2014)

Before we venture off into the city, I should probably tell you about everything we crammed into our 21 hour day. After we landed in Chicago, we headed back to Maggie’s house, where she toured me around her humble abode. … Continue reading

Chicago Bound (10.10.2014)

Chicago-Skyline-at-Night

What better reason to wake up at 4:00 AM then to catch a flight? Flight FFT1344, IAD-ORD for those of you who are interested.

Today we are Chicago bound. Bring on the hot dogs and deep dish pizzas and thick accents. The diet that I worked so hard on is about to all go to waste. But, when in Chicago, do as the Chicagoans. There will be plenty of time to eat healthy when I get back. It’s not every day you’re in the grand “Windy City”, you know!

I’m still taking suggestions as to what Maggie and I should do while in the city! Comment below if you have a “must” see!

Cheers,

T-Minus 7 Days Until Chicago (3.10.2014)

In exactly seven days,  Maggie and I will be strolling around downtown Chicago, admiring the overpowering Sears Tower, the reflective Bean, and posing for silly tourist pictures in front of Sue the Dinosaur (yea, I didn’t know that was a thing either). Luckily, I have an over zealous girlfriend, so theres no way I’ll be missing out on anything cool. Check out the itinerary she put together for us…

Basically, food. And I am so pumped. For months I’ve been hearing about ‘Portillos’ and ‘Sushi Kushi’ and ‘Walker Bros’. Finally I’ll be exposed to the “best food in the Midwest.”

And of course, she’s been dropping hints that Chicago is “the best city in the world.” This is just one of the many Buzzfeeds she sent me.

She’s set the bar high so I expect nothing less than perfection. I promise in my posts I’ll include many pictures! Stay tuned for my first trip to the Windy City!

For Now, Cheers!

Alex

P.S.: Do any of you all have suggestions as to what’s a must see?? I’d love for some great ideas!
