Last month Jamey and I had a 4 day getaway to Chicago. Neither of us had ever been and it was fun to experience it all new together. I admit, I've decided the place is not for me - not to live. But, it did have some great attractions and we had a great time together. This was our first trip that we took for us and we let ourselves indulge a bit. We are typically so frugal and while we didn't go crazy, we did let ourselves be there and enjoy the city (ie we ordered appetizers and drinks at dinner, we overpaid for tourist spots, etc) and we didn't feel guilty about it at all. The motive for going was part of Jamey's Step 2 Board exams - the oral portion. he got that out of the way the first day and then it was game on!

Warning: lots of pics coming

Ohio on top, that's hilarious! Jon and I loved our trip to Philadelphia for his boards, I was really glad they didn't have a location in Ohio. What a great excuse for a couple trip :) You have made me want to go back to Chicago with your great pics, especially that glass overlook!
