our train trip to Chicago...

This past weekend 3 of my friends and I headed off for a girls weekend in Chicago. My friend Rochelle and I won the trip at an auction at a conference back in the fall and we gave it to our friends Hayden and Lindsey for Christmas. 

 Hayden used to live in Chicago so she knows all the ropes. What we didn't know was that taking the train might not have been as glamourous and fun as we envisioned! oh well, you live and you learn...guess that is the stuff memories are made of.

We only snapped a few photos ( all of which were on my phone and are not the best quality!) 

 dinner and drinks at Quartino ( my absolute favorite Chicago place )


and we had to squeeze in a little mexican food.... 

although from the documentation all it looks like we did is eat (and we did do our fare share of eating), we did manage to update our wardrobes for spring and spend some hard earned money in Chi town! It is probably my favorite city to visit, and shop it and the company was perfect!

Tourism, human circulation considered as consumption is fundamentally nothing more than the leisure of going to see what has become banal. Cheap flights to Chicago
