So, this is our first real day in Chicago. Technically we arrived last night, but we didn’t get checked into the hotel until 9 pm, so obviously we didn’t get a chance to do much last night. Except eat, of course. Yes, we had a full dinner at 10 pm. I know that is incredibly bad, but after a full (and tiring!) day of non-stop travel and eating only some cashews and M&M’s, we were both pretty hungry upon arrival. We had a traditional Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. Our toppings of choice? We kept it simple with just cheese and pepperoni! A small plate of spaghetti and a salad served as side dishes. We literally inhaled all of the food before I could take any pictures. I’m fairly certain there will be more pizza to come on this trip, so I’m none too worried. You will see pizza pictures! I guarantee it!
After dinner we walked back to the hotel and hit the sheets! We are going way old-school with our sleeping arrangements, too. We have two full-size beds, rather than just one king size bed. So, naturally we slept in our own beds. I mean, hey, why the heck not?! We sleep in the same bed every night at home, so I think it’s nice to switch it up a bit! Plus, I like not having to share a bed! (I am not always good at sharing.)
This morning we awoke to a gray outdoors. It rained last night, and is continuing to do so this morning, so it looks kinda dark and dreary outside. Luckily I packed lots of options for cold-weather! (Honestly, I packed lots of everything! It is my curse.)
Views from our hotel room window:
Kyle swears that the building in the third picture was in the new Transformers movie (Transformers: Dark of the Moon) and proceeded to tell me all about it. I saw the movie. I don’t really remember. Nor do I care. But it pleases me that he is so enthused about it. He was like a little kid…face pressed up against the glass….snapping photos….pointing….ooohhh-ing and aaahhh-ing. It was totally cute…and only slightly annoying.
On our agenda for today? One thing and one thing only: Watch the 49er game!! We are planning to meet up with some of Kyle’s coworkers and head over to ESPN Zone and watch football all afternoon! Should be fun! Go 49ers! Since the game doesn’t start until 3 pm (1 pm on the west coast) we should have a bit of free time until kickoff, so I kinda want to sneak outside and try taking a few pictures….if the weather allows. But we shall see. I definitely don’t wanted my hair to get wet in the rain!
I will check back in later this evening….but until then….follow me on Twitter: @misslindsaykaep
