10 Hours in Chicago

Food, OOTD, Travel


Hey guys! Long time no see. The past couple months, weeks, days even have been kind of crazy and to say I’ve done a lot in that amount of time would be an understatement.  The next month you guys can expect something from me almost every day.  I’ve been living and seeing things and always plotting, keeping you guys in mind.  😉

Last week I had the opportunity to spend a day in Chicago.  I guess you could say it was like a last little hurrah before school starts back for me this week AND I finally have a steady job. So ya girl is probably going to be a little bit more busy than usual.  I ended up going with my aunts and my grandma and it was a cool little day trip.  Aside from getting like 2 hours of sleep and having to wake up at 4:30 in the morning to get ready and catch a train there it was an easy fun time.

We only had a few hours because we had to catch the 5:30 pm train home but we managed to squeeze in a really full day and I got to see everything that was at the very top of my list of things to do in Chicago.  We went to Shedd Aquarium, because I love loove love a good aquarium.  We spent a lot of time walking around the city and seeing things.  We went out to the famous Giordanos Pizza.  They have a lot of different locations throughout the city and every article I read about places to eat while in town mentioned it AND BOY they were completely right.  I got a little personal six inch pizza on their lunch special menu and it was more than enough to fill me up.  We saw the bean and the rest of Millenuim Park which I could have honestly spent a couple hours in just people watching and thinking.  We spent our last sliver of time up at Willis Tower in the sky deck.  You go up 103 floors in about sixty seconds and your ears pop going up the elevator.  It was one of the most unique experiences and I wish I could’ve spent more time at the top just looking out over Chicago.  It kinda gives you perspective.  You’re in the middle of this huge city and everything looks so tiny.


I think I’m going to start making these little day trips to Chicago more of a weekly or at least biweekly thing.  For like $20 I can take the train there and back and be in a new bigger city for the day.  The air there felt electric and I left feeling just really full and inspired and wanting more.  I’m sure I’ll be back very soon to work down my Chicago bucket list.

Thanks for the read.  And subscribe to my page to get alerts on when I post!  You all will hopefully be seeing quite a bit more of me starting this month.

All my love
